Privacy Policy

Thank you very much for visiting our website! This privacy policy is designed to inform you about how we process your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The controller responsible for the data collection and processing described below is the company named in the legal details shared on this website.

Collection of General Data When You Visit Our Website

Type and Purpose of Processing:
When you visit our website, general data is collected automatically. This data (server log files) may include the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address, and other similar information.
This data is processed for the following purposes in particular:

  • To ensure that our website maintains a stable connection
  • To ensure that visitors can use our website without any issues
  • To assess the system security and stability
  • To perform other administrative tasks

We do not use your data to identify you in any way. We may analyze this data to generate statistics with a view to improving our online presence and the technology behind it.

Legal Basis:
Data is processed in line with our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website as per article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR.

Technical service providers commissioned as processors for the operation and maintenance of our website may be recipients of the data.

Retention Period:
Data is deleted once it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data relating to website provision, this is generally the case when the browsing session ends.

Requirement to Provide Data:
You are not legally or contractually required to provide the personal data specified above. Without the IP address, however, you might not be able to make full use of our website. Some of the services may be limited or unavailable. This is why the option to object is not given.

Your Rights as a Data Subject:
When it comes to your personal data being processed, the GDPR affords you a number of rights as a website user:

  • Right of Access by the Data Subject (article 15 of the GDPR)
    You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not your personal data is being processed, and, where that is the case, access to the personal data and the information listed in article 15 of the GDPR.
  • Right to Rectification (article 16 of the GDPR)
    You have the right to obtain the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and the right to have incomplete personal data completed.
  • Right to Erasure (article 17 of the GDPR)
    You have the right to obtain the erasure of your personal data without undue delay where one of the grounds listed in article 17 of the GDPR applies, for example, if the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • Right to Restriction of Processing (article 18 of the GDPR)
    If we are not able to delete your data yet due to legal obligations, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing where one of the scenarios listed in article 18 of the GDPR applies, for example, pending verification if you have objected to processing.
  • Right to Data Portability (article 20 of the GDPR)
    In certain cases specified in article 20 of the GDPR, you have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit that data to a third party.
  • Right to Object (article 21 of the GDPR)
    You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR (processing for the purposes of legitimate interests). We will then no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

If you have given us your consent, you have the right to withdraw it. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, such as the supervisory authority responsible for the state of your habitual residence or the relevant authority for us as controller.

We reserve the right to update this privacy policy to ensure that it corresponds to the current legal requirements and reflects changes to our services, for example if we launch new services. The updated privacy policy will then apply the next time you visit our website.
