1. Access data and hosting

 

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Each time a web page is called, the web server merely automatically stores a so-called server log file, which can be used, for example. Contains the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the retrieval.

 

These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring a trouble-free operation of the site as well as the improvement of our offer. This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which are predominantly justified in the interests of weighing up our interests, in order to correctly present our offer. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your page visit.

 


Hosting services by a third party

 

Within the framework of a processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides the services for hosting and displaying the website.

2. Data collection and use for contract processing

Which data are collected, can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you to process the contract and process your inquiries. After completion of the contract your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the tax and commercial retention periods. 

 

3. Data transfer

 

Depending on which payment service provider you select in the order process, we will forward payment data collected to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and any payment service providers commissioned by us to process the payments or to the selected payment service. In part, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves, provided that you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this respect, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.
