4. Definitions
The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

Personal Data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered to be identifiable if he or she can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Affected person
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller (our company). 

Processing is any operation or series of operations carried out on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as the collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or other form of provision, alignment or association, restriction, deletion or destruction. 

Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists in using these personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal Analyze or predict the preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements of that natural person.

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data not be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

Consent is any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression of wishes given by the data subject for a specific case in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirmatory act by which the data subject indicates that he or she agrees to the processing of personal data concerning him or her is.

5. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (in conjunction with Section 15 Para. 3 TMG) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out precontractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information would then have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have
been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he was of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

6. Technique
6.1 SSL/TLS encryption
To ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator, this site uses an SSL or. TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that there is an “https://” instead of “http://” in the browser’s address line and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted information.
6.2 Data collection when visiting the website
If you use our website for informational purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so called “server log files”). Our website collects a series of general data and information every time you or an automated system accesses a page. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. They can be recorded:
• browser types and versions used,
• the operating system used by the accessing system,
• the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (socalled referrer),
• the subwebsites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
• the date and time of access to the website,
• a shortened Internet protocol address (anonymized IP address),
• the Internet service provider of the accessing system.
• When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about you
Rather, this information is needed to
• to deliver the content of our website correctly,
• to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it,
• to ensure the longterm functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website and
 • To provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

We therefore evaluate this collected data and information statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data in the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject. The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.
