2. Legal basis for processing

The processing of personal data requires a legal basis and we would like to present this to you here.
Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a of the GDPR is valid as the legal basis for the processing of personal data for which we gather the consent of the affected person.
Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b of the GDPR is valid as the legal basis for the processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a contract for which the affected person is a contractual party. This also applies to processing procedures that are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures.
Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. c of the GDPR is valid as the legal basis where the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject.
Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f of the GDPR is valid as the legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party and where the interests and fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh the former. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the execution of our business activities and in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of security of our online product.

II. Logfiles, hosting

The data that the browser transfers to us within the framework of our legitimate interest in the analysis and for security reasons (so-called ‘logfiles’) are automatically saved in the server statistics.
In detail these comprise the following data:

  • The language and version of the browser software
  • The operating system used and its interface
  • Referrer URL (the website visited previously)
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Date and time of the server enquiry
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (concrete website)
  • Data quantity transferred
  • Access status/ HTTP status code.

We are not usually able to allocate this data to certain persons. This data is not combined with other data sources. The data is also deleted within 7 days following statistical evaluation. Where data needs to be retained for proof purposes we are exempt from deleting it until the relevant incident has been fully resolved.

We use hosting services. These serve to provide infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage and database services, security services and technical maintenance services in order to maintain the operation of the online product.

In the course of this we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contractual data, usage data, meta and communication data from customers, interested parties and visitors to this online product on the basis of our legitimate interest in the efficient and secure provision of this online product.

III. Contractual processing

The personal data that you provide for contractual purposes e.g. for bid requests, such as name, address or e-mail address is only used internally in order to reply to your request, process your orders or to give you access to certain contractual information.

IV. Contact

When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form we save your information in order to answer your questions.
In principle the data is not transferred to a third party except if the valid data protection regulations justify transfer or we are legal obliged to do so. You can withdraw the consent that you gave at any time with effect for the future. If you withdraw the consent then your data will be deleted immediately as long as there are no exceptional legal reasons for further processing. Otherwise your data will be deleted as soon as we have processed your request or the purpose of saving it is no longer valid and there are no other exceptional legal reasons that contradict its erasure. You can obtain information on the data that we store on you at any time.

VIII. Transfer of the data to third parties

We transfer data to third parties if this is necessary in order to fulfil a contract and/or we are legally obliged and/or entitled to do so in individual cases.

We sometimes make use of external service providers in our legitimate interest for analysis, optimisation and the efficient operation of our online product. This always assumes that the third party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the users as they cannot send the content to their browsers without the IP address. Thus the IP address is necessary in order to display this content. Third party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible icons, also called ‘web beacons’) for statistical or marketing purposes. The pixel tags allow information such as visitor traffic to the pages on the website to be evaluated. The pseudonym information can also be saved on the user’s appliance in cookies and can include technical information similar to logfiles, as well as other information. Our service providers are listed in the following.

If your data is to be used for other purposes then we will inform you of this in advance and only use your data if you have given your express consent in advance.

You are also entitled to complain to a data protection supervision authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates statutory regulations.

X. Storage duration for personal data

We store personal data for the duration of the relevant statutory storage period and/or as long as the purpose of collection is valid. After the storage period the data will be routinely deleted where it is not required for the initiation or fulfilment of a contract. If the user’s data is not deleted because it is necessary for other, legally permissible purposes this processing will be limited as far as possible. The data will be blocked where possible and not processed for other purposes. This is valid, e.g. for user data that needs to be stored for commercial or tax law reasons.
