Whenever you access our website, usage data is transmitted to us or our web host / IT service provider by your Internet browser and stored in log files (so-called server log files). These stored data include, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the IP address, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO out of our predominant legitimate interest in ensuring the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offer.

If the purpose of the contact is to carry out pre-contractual measures (e.g. advice in the event of an interest to buy, preparation of an offer) or concerns a contract already concluded between you and us, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b DSGVO.

If contact is established for other reasons, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO out of our predominantly justified interest in processing and answering your enquiry. In this case, you have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO.

We will only use your e-mail address to process your enquiry. Your data will then be deleted in compliance with statutory retention periods, unless you have consented to further processing and use.
