IV. General

1. Scope of data processing

We only collect and use personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users only takes place if the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations or with the user's consent.

2. Legal basis for data processing

Insofar as we obtain the user's consent for the processing of personal data on our website, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the user is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of a contractual obligation or pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the user concerned do not outweigh the interest mentioned first, Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing (so-called weighing of interests).

In addition, there are other legal bases for the processing of personal data, which we specifically list below, if relevant.

3. Storage period

Users' personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which our company is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

4. Transfer or disclosure of personal data

If we pass on personal data, we do this on the one hand to service companies that support us in fulfilling the aforementioned purposes. These companies may use your personal data as so-called processors only for the fulfilment of their tasks on our behalf and are obliged to comply with the relevant data protection regulations. The processors we use are:

Website Hoster:

Innovation Gate GmbH,
Wallstr. 16
40878 Ratingen
Germany

On the other hand, we may forward your enquiry to our affiliated companies and cooperation partners in order to fulfil your enquiries using the contact forms (e.g. request for product information, brochures).

Apart from that, however, no personal data is passed on to third parties.

5. Place of data processing
