2./ What do we process your data for and on what legal basis? / Can I refuse the survey?
Our website collects a series of general data and information each time you or an automated system access it. This general data and information is stored in the log files of our server. The browser types and versions used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website, the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access can be recorded to the website, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the Internet service provider of the accessing system and other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our IT systems. When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to deliver the content of our website correctly, to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, to ensure the long-term functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and to provide law enforcement authorities with criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack to provide necessary information. We therefore evaluate this anonymously collected data and information statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process (Art. 6 Para.1 f GDPR). The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
2.1 To fulfill contractual obligations / based on consent To fulfill contractual obligations / based on consent (Art. 6 Para.1 a, b GDPR)
We use personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, nationality, gender, company name) that you voluntarily transmit to us in connection with the conclusion of a contract or the initiation of a contract conclusion (e.g. via our contact form, to contact you via e-mail), based on the associated consent (Art. 6 Para.1 a GDPR). This data is then processed by us in accordance with the legal provisions (e.g. the BDSG, the TMG and the GDPR). Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing results from the respective input mask used for registration or contact or based on your decision as to which information you would like to make available to us.
In particular, you have the option of registering on our website and thus creating a user profile. The data is entered into an input mask, transmitted to us and stored. The registration serves to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures in accordance with Art. 6 Para.1 b DSGVO. After registration on our website, we collect and process the following data in addition to the data that your Internet browser automatically transmits to us, which, depending on the processing purpose, are marked as mandatory or voluntary information:
Date and time of registration
Salutation, your first name and last name
your postal address
Your email address
If provided voluntarily, your telephone number, company name, fax number
In this context, you will also be asked to assign a password in order to ensure the security of your account and the legitimacy when ordering.
We process the data that is required to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures (e.g. to answer your questions about the product or a service) (Art. 6 Para.1 b DSGVO). If we do not provide the personal data, we cannot meet our contractual obligations (e.g. invoicing, the provision of our services, the assertion of claims, correspondence with you, the preparation of the treatment). Nor can we answer your request.
The information marked with "*" in our online forms (e.g. callback service, contact form) is mandatory in order to be able to address you personally (name) and to answer your questions (email).
2.2 As part of the balancing of interests (Art. 6 Para.1 f GDPR)
If necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfillment of the contract to protect our legitimate interests or those of third parties (e.g.):
Testing and optimization of procedures for needs analysis and direct customer contact; Advertising or market and opinion research, unless you have objected to the use of your data; Assertion of claims and defense in legal disputes; Ensuring the IT security and IT operations of our company; Prevention and investigation of criminal offenses; To operate our website (including integration of social plugins);
We also use your name and contact information (e.g. e-mail address) to send you product information about our services (e.g. new products). This processing of your aforementioned data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests (according to Article 6 Para. 1 f GDPR) and is justified by a weighing of interests in our favour.
Without using this data, we cannot send you any direct mail. We only use your data for direct advertising for our services if you have initially consented to this (Art. 6 Para.1 a GDPR) and your consent has not been revoked. We also ensure through the selected communication channels for advertising (e.g. post, e-mail) that these mean the least possible disruption to you.
2.3 Online Store
We operate an online shop on our website. If you want to order goods in our online shop, you can do this via your customer account (see Section 2.1). You can also use the “order as a guest” function.
We create an internal debtor account in our processing system for each order or assign your order to an existing debtor account. In this we store your basic data required for contract processing:
Contact details (surname, first name, salutation)
Optional email address
if necessary, address data and telephone number
If you register or have already registered, the data stored in your customer account will be linked.
When paying, we do not store any payment information (e.g. bank details, account number). You give this information exclusively and directly to your respective payment provider. We process the aforementioned data in accordance with Art. 6 Para.1 a and b GDPR. Without the data we cannot conclude and/or process a contract with you.
3./ Who works with the data?
3.1 The personal data will only be used by the departments involved in the execution of the contract; these are the employees in our company.

These are companies in the categories of IT services, logistics (shipping of goods), printing services, telecommunications, legal and tax advice, tax consultants, debt collection, advice and consulting as well as sales and marketing. We store the data received on servers from specialized service providers within Germany.

When paying via PayPal, your payment data will be forwarded to PayPal (Europe) S.à rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg ("Paypal") as part of payment processing. PayPal, in turn, reserves the right to carry out a credit check for the payment methods offered there (e.g. credit card or direct debit). PayPal uses the result of the credit check in relation to the statistical probability of non-payment for the purpose of deciding whether to provide the respective payment method. The credit report may contain probability values. We have no influence on this. Further data protection information, including information on the credit agencies used, can be found in PayPal's data protection declaration: https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full
When paying via paydirekt, your payment details will be sent to paydirekt GmbH (“paydirekt”), Hamburger Allee 26-28, 60486 Frankfurt am Main, as part of the payment process. The payment data (e.g. payment amount, details of the payee) together with the participant's confirmation that the payment data are correct are collected, processed and transmitted to the bank by paydirekt in order to carry out the paydirekt payment. paydirekt authenticates the payment using a specially created authentication process. The bank then authorizes the payment to the merchant using paydirekt. paydirekt collects and stores the transaction data (e.g. transaction ID and information on the shopping cart) from paydirekt payments. You can find more information in the paydirekt data protection declaration at: https://www.paydirekt.de/agb/index.html
We only receive a notification from the payment service provider about the execution of the payment. This notification is then processed as the basis for further contract processing. If you make use of your statutory rights of revocation and/or warranty with regard to the purchased goods, we will process your data for the purpose of this processing.
3.4 The data will not be passed on to third parties who are not involved in the execution of the contract. In particular, there is no transfer of personal data to a third country or an international organization.

In § 147 AO, for example, a retention obligation of up to ten years is regulated. If you have given your consent to the processing of personal data (Art. 6 Para.1 a GDPR), we will delete this data at the latest as soon as you revoke your consent and if there is no other legal basis for the processing.

You can then decide on a case-by-case basis whether or not to accept cookies. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of the online shop may be restricted.
9./ Use of Google Analytics
In view of the discussion about the use of analysis tools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form in order to rule out direct personal reference.
Further information and Google's data protection declaration can be found at: www.google.de/policies/privacy/. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers an appropriate level of data protection in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR.

Our website also uses so-called social plugins (“Facebook plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). The Facebook plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". If you call up a page on our website that contains such a Facebook plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the Facebook plugin is sent directly to your browser by Facebook, which integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this Facebook plugin and are therefore informing you according to our level of knowledge. By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the Facebook plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and store your IP address.

We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc, 600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google Inc). If you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain web pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were forwarded to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no possibility that cookies can be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Here, customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly (deactivation option). You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Further information and Google's data protection declaration can be found at: www.google.de/policies/privacy/. The data is processed to safeguard our legitimate interest in the optimization and economic operation of our website (Art. 6 Para.1 f GDPR).
