    1) Visit to our website
    If you visit our website for information purposes only, meaning that you do not pass over information to us otherwise, we shall only process that personal data passed over to us by your browser. This includes:

    – the domain accessed by you,
    – IP-address of your system,

    The above data are required by us for technical reasons, in order to display our website to ensure stability and security and to optimise our offer.

    The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para 1 f GDPR [DSGVO] with our legitimate interest stated in the named reasons.

    We shall delete this data within seven days at the latest. Data shall only be saved after this time if the personal data has been deleted or converted into anonymous form as appropriate. This will happen for IP addresses for example, by abbreviating them in accordance with data protection regulations.

    When operating our website we shall use die domainfactory GmbH, Oskar-Messter-Str. 33, 85737 Ismaning as data processor.

    2) Contact Form
    If you submit our contact form, we shall use the data you have submitted, whereby only a valid e-mail address is necessary to respond to your request and the other information is voluntary.

    The data will be processed for the purpose of contacting us on the basis of Art. 6 Para 1 b GDPR [DSGVO], provided that your enquiry concerns executing or handling the contracts entered into with you or setting up a contract . In other cases the legal basis is laid down in Art. 6 Para 1 f GDPR [DSGVO], with our legitimate interest resulting from the aforenamed purposes.

    The personal data collected by us for using the contact form will be deleted automatically after the request made by you has been dealt with., if we are not legally obliged to keep it in safekeeping or if we need the data to fulfil the contract.

    3) E-mail contact
    If you make contact with us via e-mail we will save the personal data you have submitted to enable us to respond to your requests.

    In addition to this, in the course of transportation, or sending you an e-mail log data are generated on a regular basis which, for example, also contain the IP address of the
    e-mail server used by you. This log data is required to ensure that our e-mail server operates properly and in addition to this, serve as proof in the event of server problems or security incidents.

    The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para 1 f GDPR [DSGVO], with our legitimate interest resulting from the aforenamed purposes. If the objective of making contact is to enter into a contract or if contact with our legitimate interest resulting from the aforenamed purposes. t is made as part of an existing contractual relationship, the legal basis will be Art. 6 Para 1 b GDPR [DSGVO].

    4) Matomo
    We use the Matomo web analysis service Matomo to analyse the usage of our website, and to be able to improve it on a regular basis. The statistics gleaned enable us to improve our offer and design it so that it is more interesting for you as user. The information collected in this manner is only saved by us on our servers in Germany or another member state of the European Union. The information will not be passed on to a third party.

    Matomo is set up in such a way so that the IP addresses are not saved in their complete form, but are shortened by the last two bytes so that it is no longer possible to match up the abbreviated IP address with the system calling up.

    The legal basis for using Matomo is your consent and this means Art. 6 Para 1 a GDPR [DSGVO].

    The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our purposes. This will be the case after 6 months.

    Moreover, users have the option of objecting to their data being recorded by Matomo and to prevent it. For this we are providing users of our website with the option to opt out of the analysis procedure.
