    This obligation does not have to be met, hovever, if this information is impossible or could only be achieved through disproportionate expenditure.

    The users and the affected persons also have, according to Article 21 GDPR, the right to object to the future processing of personal data concerning them, insofar as this data is processed according to Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.

    Especially permitted is an objection to the processing of personal data for the use in direct marketing.

    III. Information about data processing

    The personal data that is processed while you use our internet presence is deleted or closed off as soon as the purpose of the storage does not apply anymore, the deletion does not conflict with legal obligations to retain the data or no different statements with regard to individual processing procedures are made in the following.

    Server data

    For technical reasons, especially to guarantee a safe and stable internet presence, data is transmitted by your internet browser to us, respectively to our webspace provider.

    With these so-called server logfiles we collect among other things type and version of your internet browser, your operating system, the website you were coming from to our internet presence (Referrer URL), the website(s) of our internet presence you visit, date and time of your access and the IP address of the internet connection from which you access our internet presence.

    The thusly collected data is saved temporarily but not together with other data concerning you.

    This storage is legally based on Article 6 paragraph 1(f) GDPR.

    Our legitimate interest is the optimization, stability, functionality and safety of our internet presence.

    The personal data will be deleted at the latest after seven days, as long as no further storage for evidentiary purposes is required.

    Otherwise, the data is fully or partially excluded from deletion until the incident has been resolved.

    Contact request/contact opportunity

    If you contact us by contact form or email, the data provided by you is used to process your inquiry.

    The provision of this data is necessary to process and respond to your inquiry – without this provision we cannot respond to your inquiry or at the most respond in a limited way.

    The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR.

    Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been answered concludingly and the deletion does not conflict with legal obligations to retain the data, e.g. a possible subsequent contract administration.

    Contract Administration

    The data that is transmitted by you to claim our range of services is processed by us for the objective of contract administration and is therefore necessary.

    Formation and conclusion of the contract are not possible without the provision of your data.

    The legal basis for the processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR.

    We delete your data after the full completion of the contract, but we have to observe the retention period relating to tax and commercial law.

    Google Fonts

    Our internet presence uses Google Fonts to depict external fonts. Google Fonts is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (in the following only called „Google“).

    As Google is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield, they guarantee that the data protection regulations of the EU are also maintained if the data is processed in the U.S.A.

    To depict certain fonts in our web presence, a connection to a Google server in the U.S.A. is established if you access our internet presence.

    The legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR.

    Our legitimate interest is the optimization and the efficient operation of our internet presence.

    Through the connection to Google that is established when you access our internet presence, Google is able to determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the depiction of the font is to be transmitted.
