2. General information on data processing
2.1 Personal Data
Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person.
Individual details about personal or factual circumstances are, for example:
Name, age, marital status, date of birth
Address, telephone number, e-mail address
Account number, credit card number
IP address & location data
2.2 This is the way we process personal data
We process personal data within the legally permissible limits. This means that data processing operations are based on a legal basis. These are standardized in Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR. Most data processing is based on a legitimate interest on our part (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), on processing operations necessary for the performance of the contract (Art. 6 para. 1 (lit. b GDPR) or on the basis of consent given by you (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). In the latter case, you will be informed separately (e.g. via a cookie banner) about the consent process.
Personal data is processed by us only for clear purposes (Art. 5 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). As soon as the purpose of the processing ceases to apply, your personal data will be deleted or protected by technical as well as organizational measures (e.g. by pseudonymization).
The same applies to the expiry of a prescribed storage period, subject to cases in which further storage is necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract. In addition, there may be a legal obligation to store data for a longer period or to pass it on to third parties (esp. to law enforcement agencies). In other cases, the storage period and type of data collected as well as the type of data processing depends on which functions you use in the individual case. We will be happy to provide you with information about this in individual cases, in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR.
2.3 We process these categories
Data categories are in particular the following data:
Master data (e.g. names, addresses, dates of birth),
Contact data (e.g. e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, messenger Services),
Content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos, contents of documents/files),
Contract data (e.g., subject matter of contract, terms, customer category),
Payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history, use of other payment Service providers),
Usage data (e.g. history in our Services, use of certain content, access times),
Connection data (e.g. device information, IP addresses, URL referrers).
2.4 These are the security measures we meet
In accordance with legal requirements and taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to your rights and freedoms, we take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
In particular, the measures include ensuring that your data is stored and processed confidentially, with integrity and available at all times. Furthermore, the security measures we implement include controls on access to your data as well as access, input, disclosure, ensuring availability and their separation from data of other natural persons. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of data subject rights (see under Section 5), the deletion of data and responses in the event of a risk to your data. Furthermore, we already consider the protection of personal data during the development of our software as well as through procedures that comply with the principle of data protection through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.
3 Contact form / contacting us by e-mail
We process your personal data that you provide to us when contacting us for the purpose of answering your inquiry, your e-mail or your callback request. Processed data categories are master data, contact data, content data, possibly usage data, connection data and possibly contract data. In individual cases, we forward this data to companies affiliated with us or to third parties that we commission to process orders. The legal basis of the processing depends on the purpose of the contact.
4. Processing on behalf
If we use external Service providers to process your data, they will be carefully selected and commissioned by us. If the Services provided by these Service providers are commissioned processing within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR, the Service providers are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored. In this context, our order processing contracts comply with the strict requirements of Art. 28 GDPR as well as the specifications of the German data protection authorities.
5. Data subject rights
If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights as a user against the controller:
5.1 Right to information
You may request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us.
If such processing exists, you may request information from the controller about the following:
The purposes for which the personal data are processed;
the categories of personal data which are processed;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
the planned duration of the storage of the personal data concerning you or, if concrete information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;
the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning you, a right to restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
any available information about the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22 (1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
You have the right to request information about whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.
5.2 Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller if the processed personal data concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. The controller shall carry out the rectification without undue delay.
5.3 Right to restriction of processing
Under the following conditions, you may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you:
if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the controller's legitimate grounds override your grounds.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
5.4 Right to erasure
5.4.1 You may request the controller to erase the personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the controller is obliged to erase this data without undue delay, if one of the following reasons applies:
The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR.
The personal data concerning you has been processed unlawfully.
The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
The personal data concerning you has been collected in relation to information society Services offered pursuant to Article 8 (1) GDPR.
5.4.2 If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers that process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of such personal data.
5.4.3 The right to erasure shall not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary
For the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of 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 area of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) lit. h and i and Art. 9 (3) GDPR;
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in (1) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
5.5 Right to information
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right vis-à-vis the controller to be informed about these recipients.
5.6 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and
the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
5.7 Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of the personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society Services - notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC - to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
5.8 Right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
The processing is lawful until your revocation - the revocation thus only affects the processing after receipt of your revocation. You can declare the revocation informally by mail or e-mail. The processing of your personal data will then no longer take place, subject to permission by another legal basis. If this is not the case, your data must be deleted immediately after the revocation in accordance with Art. 17 (2) GDPR. Your right to revoke your consent subject to the above conditions is guaranteed.
Your revocation should be addressed to:

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
6. Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling.
Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling do not take place.

The notification obligation does not apply if it involves disproportionate effort or is impossible. We will also inform you about the recipients upon request.
