Advertising, e-mail advertising (newsletter)
We inform you about our current offerings, new developments and products in our newsletter. If you wish to receive the newsletter, we will need a valid e-mail address from you. The data entered into the entry form during the registration process will be collected. We ask you for you title and name so that we can address you personally. Naturally, you can also use a pseudonym for this purpose. This data will only be used for transmitting the newsletter. In addition to this data, we also store the registration date. This record only serves the purpose of evidence in the event that a third party abuses your e-mail address and orders the newsletter under your e-mail address without your knowledge.
Termination / revocation: Naturally, you can always object to the further use of your data for advertising and marketing purposes – even when this is legally permissible without your knowledge (e.g. postal advertising) – by sending us a simple message.
You can always revoke your consent to store and use your personal data for the purpose of newsletter transmission by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.
Links to websites of other providers
Our website may contain links to the websites of other providers. Please note that this data protection policy only refers to this website. We have no influence on other websites and do not monitor other provides to ensure that they comply with the applicable data protection regulations.
Protection of minors
Children and persons under 18 years of age should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children, do not collect such data and do not transfer it.
Standard time periods for data erasure
The law stipulates many different retention periods and obligations. The corresponding data is routinely erased after the expiration of these retention periods. If data is not affected by such retention periods and obligations, it will be erased or anonymized when the purposes stated in this data protection policy no longer apply. If this data protection policy does not contain any other, contradictory provisions on the subject of data storage, the data collected by us will be stored by us for as long as necessary to fulfill the aforementioned purposes for which it was collected.
Other data uses and data erasure
Any further processing or uses of your personal data is generally performed only when a statutory regulation allows it or when you have consented to the data processing or use. If we process data for other purposes than those for which the data was originally collected, we will inform you of these other purposes and provide you with other relevant information prior to processing.
Detection and prosecution of abuse
We store information for the purpose of detecting and prosecuting abuse, particularly including your IP address, for a maximum of 7 days. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in keeping the data for 7 days is to ensure the proper functioning of our website and the transactions conducted on it and to prevent cyber-attacks and the like. Where applicable, we use anonymous usage information for the sake of designing our website to meet the needs of users.
