That is why we have been a byword for quality for 65 years.

§ 1 Legal basis for the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data

Inso­far as we obtain the con­sent of the data sub­ject for the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Pro­tec­tion Basic Reg­u­la­tion (EU-GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

In the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data required for the performance of a con­tract to which the data sub­ject is a par­ty, Arti­cle 6(1)(b) EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions that are nec­es­sary to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al measures.

Inso­far as the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data is required to fulfil a legal oblig­a­tion to which our com­pa­ny is sub­ject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the vital inter­ests of the data sub­ject or anoth­er nat­ur­al per­son require the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data, Arti­cle 6(1)(d) EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If pro­cess­ing is nec­es­sary to safe­guard a legit­i­mate inter­est of our com­pa­ny or a third par­ty and if the inter­ests, fun­da­men­tal rights and free­doms of the data sub­ject do not out­weigh the for­mer inter­est, Art. 6 para. 1 let­ter f EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

§ 2 Stor­age time and data deletion

The per­son­al data of the per­son con­cerned will be delet­ed or blocked as soon as the pur­pose of stor­age ceas­es to apply. Fur­ther­more, data may be stored if this has been pro­vid­ed for by the Euro­pean or nation­al leg­is­la­tor in EU reg­u­la­tions, laws or oth­er pro­vi­sions to which the per­son respon­si­ble is subject.

The data will also be blocked or delet­ed if a stor­age peri­od pre­scribed by the standards expires, unless there is a need for fur­ther stor­age of the data for the con­clu­sion or ful­fil­ment of a contract.

§ 3 Infor­ma­tion about the col­lec­tion of per­son­al data

In the fol­low­ing we inform about the col­lec­tion of per­son­al data when using our web­site. Per­son­al data are all data that are per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able to you, e.g. name, address, e‑mail address­es, user behavior.

When you con­tact us by e‑mail or via a con­tact form, the data you pro­vide (your e‑mail address, if applic­a­ble your name and your tele­phone num­ber) will be stored by us to answer your ques­tions. We delete the data aris­ing in this con­text after the stor­age is no longer nec­es­sary, or lim­it the pro­cess­ing if statu­to­ry reten­tion oblig­a­tions exist.

If we use con­tract­ed service providers for indi­vid­ual func­tions of our offer or would like to use your data for adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es, we will inform you in detail about the respec­tive process­es below. We also spec­i­fy the defined cri­te­ria for the stor­age period.
