The contact details that are published as part of the Impressum may not be used by third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited information materials and advertising. In the case of unsolicited promotional information (such as spam e-mails), we reserve the right to take legal action.

According to the Art. 37 GDPR we are not obliged to appoint a company data protection officer. We also do not have a specific person for data protection, whose contact data could be published here.

Collection and storage of personal data

Personal data

Personal data is any type of data that can be used to directly or indirectly identify an individual. Some examples of personal data are name, address, email etc.

In this sense, a use of our offer is basically possible without providing personal data. This means that we can neither identify nor contact our users due to the typically stored data.

When you contact us via email, through a contact form or through social media, we will collect the information you provide (your email address, your name and phone number if applicable) in order to be able to answer your questions. Legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO. We delete the data arising in this connection after the storage is no longer necessary, in particular after completion of the processing of the request, or limit the processing if there are statutory storage requirements.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website/app, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
