B.2 What personal data do we collect and how do we process the data?

We process personal data that we obtain from our customers and other business partners, job applicants or other individuals in the course of our business relationship with them through various channels, including this website, e-mail and telephone. To the extent permitted by law, we also collect data from publicly available sources, such as the Internet, the press or the commercial register. When using our website, we automatically record technical information (e.g. web browser, operating system or time the site was accessed).

We process this data primarily to conclude and perform contracts with our customers, job applicants and business partners, to administer our customer relations, to provide our services to our customers, and to obtain services from our suppliers and subcontractors, and to comply with our legal obligations.

We further process personal data, such as your contact details and e-mail address as well as technical information, based on our legitimate interest for other purposes, in particular

  • for marketing purposes, including invitations and registrations to workshops and events, or for sending newsletters to you, if you are our customer or have agreed to receive such newsletters and invitations to workshops and events, whereby you may object to this processing purpose of your data at any time;
  • for the assertion of legal claims and defense in connection with legal disputes and official proceedings;
  • to guarantee the error-free provision of the website, optimize our website, and to analyze your usage patterns.
  • If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for specific purposes, for example, to receive a newsletter, you can withdraw your consent at any time by sending us a notification via e-mail. In this case, we will not further process your personal data, unless we have another legal basis for processing. Your withdrawal of consent will not affect any data processing that has already been taken.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after you leave our site. Other cookies will remain archived on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website, to save user configurations (such as the language used), and to analyze how you use our website.

Cookies that are required for the performance of the electronic communications transaction or to provide specific functions you want to use are stored on the basis of our legitimate interest in ensuring the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your browsing patterns) should be stored, they are addressed separately in this Data Protection Statement.

We do use Google Analytics or similar services on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).

To ensure that fonts used on this website are uniform, this website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google. When you access a page on our website, your browser will load the required web fonts into your browser cache to correctly display text and fonts. To do this, the browser you use will have to establish a connection with Google’s servers. As a result, Google will learn that your IP address was used to access our website. If your browser should not support Web Fonts, a standard font installed on your computer will be used.

For more information on Google Web Fonts, please follow this link: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and consult Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

B.3.3.2 Font Awesome Icons

To ensure that icons used on this website are uniform, this website uses so-called Font Awesome Icons provided by Font Awesome. When you access a page on our website, your browser will load the required icons for display. To do this, the browser you use will have to establish a connection with Font Awesome’s servers. As a result, Font Awesome will learn that your IP address was used to access our website.

For more information on Font Awesome’s icons, please follow this link: https://fontawesome.com/ and consult Font Awesome’s Data Privacy Declaration under https://fontawesome.com/privacy.

B.4 Security

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Furthermore, we have implemented technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration and against unauthorized disclosure or access to personal data we store. This includes training of our personnel who may have access to your personal data.

B.5 Retention Period and Data Deletion

We will keep your personal data as long as this is necessary to fulfill the purposes of the consent. If we do no longer need your personal data for compliance with contractual or statutory obligations, we will erase them from our systems or anonymize them accordingly so that identification is no longer possible. This shall not apply if we must comply with statutory or official obligations, e.g. statutory retention periods that may be specified in the German Commercial Code or the German General Tax Code and that can generally extend to 6 to 10 years, or if evidence must be secured during statutory limitation periods. While these periods usually amount to 3 years, they amount to up to 30 years in some cases.
