Legal basis for the processing of personal data
We process your personal data such as your name, first name, e-mail address, IP address etc. only if there is a legal basis for this. According to the Basic Data Protection Regulation, three regulations in particular can be considered here:
a) You have given us your consent to the processing of your personal data for one or more purposes, Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO. In this context, we will inform you in detail about the purpose(s) of the processing and your express consent will be documented.
b) The processing of your personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures with you, Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
c) The processing of personal data is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms prevail, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.
However, we will always point out to you at the respective points on which legal basis the processing of your personal data takes place.
Disclosure of personal data
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
a) you have given your express consent to this pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO,
b) the disclosure according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
c) in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
d) this is legally permissible and necessary for the execution of contractual relationships with you pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. B DSGVO.
Storage duration and deletion
We will store any personal data you provide to us only as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was provided or as long as required by law. Upon fulfilment of the purpose and/or expiry of the statutory storage periods, the data will be deleted or blocked by us.

b) Contact form / e-mail contact
We provide you with a form on our website so that you can contact us at any time. In order to use the contact form, it is necessary to enter a name for a personal salutation and a valid e-mail address to make contact so that we know who sent the enquiry and can process it. If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details provided by you there and your IP address pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and f DSGVO, will be processed in order to carry out pre-contractual measures at your request or to safeguard our legitimate interest, namely to carry out our business activities. You are also welcome to send us an e-mail using the e-mail address provided on our website. In this case, we store and process your e-mail address and the information you provide in the context of the e-mail in accordance with Art. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and f DSGVO to process your message. The enquiries and the associated data will be deleted no later than 3 months after receipt, unless they are required for a further contractual relationship.
c) Google Fonts
We use Google Fonts on our website. This enables us to display fonts. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. (Google). The integration of these web fonts takes place via a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This may result in the following being transmitted to the server and stored by Google: Name of the browser used Version of the browser Website from which the request was triggered Operating system of the user Screen resolution of the user IP address of the user Language settings of the browser or the operating system that the user is using More detailed information can be found in Google’s data protection information, which you can access here: www.google.com/fonts#AboutPlace:about www.google.com/policies/privacy/ The use of Google fonts serves to simplify reading our website and make it graphically more pleasant for you and is therefore based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Rights of the data subject
You have the following rights:
Pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO, you have the right to request information about your personal data processed by us. This right of access includes information about the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned retention period or at least the criteria for determining the retention period, the existence of a right of rectification, deletion, limitation of processing or opposition, the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, the origin of your personal data, if not collected from us, and the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, where appropriate, meaningful information about its details.
According to Art. 16 DSGVO, you have the right to immediate correction of incorrect or incomplete data stored by us.
You have the right to ask us to delete your personal data immediately, unless further processing is necessary for one of the following reasons: to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information; to fulfil a legal obligation which the processing requires under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO; for archive purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
d.) Restriction of processing
Pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted for one of the following reasons. You dispute the accuracy of your personal data; the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data; We no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims; you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO.
If you have requested the rectification or erasure of your personal data or a limitation of processing in accordance with Articles 16, 17(1) and 18, we will notify all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You may ask us to notify you of these recipients.
You have the right to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to request the transfer of such data to a third party, provided that the processing was carried out by automated means and is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b).
Pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO, you have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time. The revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke your consent. In future, we may no longer continue the data processing based on your revoked consent.
Pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the DSGVO.
If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right, pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, to object to the processing of your personal data if there are reasons for doing so which arise from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct advertising.

If you would like to make use of your right of revocation or objection, simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
j.) Automated case-by-case decision including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us, is permitted by the laws of the Union or the Member States to which we are subject, and those laws contain reasonable measures to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or are made with your express consent. However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests. With regard to the cases mentioned in a) and c), we shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from our side, to state our own position and to contest the decision.
