Which of your data do we process? And for what purposes?

If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it.

Data processing for other purposes will only be considered if the legal requirements necessary in this respect pursuant to Art. 6 (4) DSGVO exist. We will of course comply with any information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 (3) DSGVO and Art. 14 (4) DSGVO in that case.

On what legal basis is this based?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is basically – unless there are other specific legal provisions – Art. 6 DSGVO. In particular, the following possibilities come into consideration here:

– Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO).

– Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO)

– Data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO)

– Data processing for the fulfillment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO)

If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of the personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 DSGVO.

How long is the data stored?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist – e.g. under commercial law or tax law – the personal data in question will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After expiry of the retention obligation, it is checked whether there is a further necessity for processing. If there is no longer a necessity, the data is deleted.

As a matter of principle, we carry out an examination of data towards the end of a calendar year with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the volume of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific types of data or purposes of processing.

Of course, you can request information about the data we have stored about you at any time (see below) and, if there is no need for further processing, you can request deletion of the data or restriction of processing.

To which recipients is the data passed on?

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, if the transfer is permissible on the basis of a balancing of interests in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, if we are legally obliged to pass on the data or if you have given your consent to do so.

Where is the data processed?

Your personal data is processed by us exclusively at locations or data centers in the Federal Republic of Germany.

Use of our online offers

In principle, you can use our online services without disclosing your identity.

In the process, personal data will be collected from you and in some cases stored.

Data collection when visiting our websites

If you use our websites for information purposes only (i.e. you do not register, conclude a contract with us or otherwise transmit information to us), we collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our servers. This is technically necessary for us to be able to display our websites to you and to ensure the stability and security of the systems involved.

The following categories of data are processed in the process:

This data is temporarily stored in the log files of our system for a maximum of sixty days. Longer storage is possible if the data is still required to clarify a technical problem or an attack on systems involved.

We do not store the log files together with other personal data about you.

The legal basis for these processing operations is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

The collection of data to display the websites and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of our websites and the maintenance of IT security. In this respect, you have no possibility to object to this.

Use of cookies

Currently, we do not use cookies or only technically necessary cookies for the operation of our website. This could change for technical or organizational reasons. In this case, we have the following information:

In addition to the data described above, cookies may be stored on your terminal device when using our websites during or even after your visit to our online offers. A cookie is a small text file that is sent from a website to the browser. This is stored locally and also sent back again. Different information can be stored in a cookie, which is read by the body that sets the cookie. They usually contain an Id (unique string of characters). This then allows a browser to be identified when the website is called up again or when a page is changed.

This technology is primarily used to make our online services more user-friendly and effective overall.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

You don’t like advertising cookies either? A general objection to the use of cookies used for advertising purposes can be declared for a variety of services via the EU website or the US website In addition, you can make appropriate configurations in your browser settings and thus, for example, refuse to accept “third-party cookies” or all cookies. However, this may mean that not all functions of our online services are available to you.

Your rights as a “data subject“

You have the right to information about the personal data we process about you.

Please understand that when you request information, we may require you to provide proof that you are the person you claim to be.

Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law.

Furthermore, you have a right to object to processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to a right to data portability.

In particular, you have a right to object to the processing of your data in connection with direct marketing, if this is carried out on the basis of a balance of interests, in accordance with Article 21 (1) and (2) DSGVO.

Right of appeal

You have the right to complain about the processing of personal data by us to a data protection supervisory authority.

The supervisory authority responsible for us is:

Thuringian State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.
