c) This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate in-terest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.

Contact via e-mail

You have the option of contacting us by e-mail. You will find the relevant addresses on our website under Contact.

If you contact us via the e-mail address provided by us, the personal data transmitted with your e-mail will be stored. The legal basis for the processing of your data in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in contacting you as a (potential) customer.
If the contact via e-mail is in connection with the conclusion or execution of a contract be-tween you and us, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR is also the legal basis for the processing.

We process personal data that we store in connection with your contact via e-mail exclu-sively for the purpose of processing your contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties in this respect.

We delete your data as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was col-lected. For personal data transmitted by e-mail, this is the case when the respective corre-spondence with you has ended and it can be inferred from the circumstances that the mat-ter in question has been conclusively clarified.
If the data is required to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, it can on-ly be deleted if this is permitted by contractual or legal obligations. Which storage periods apply here must be determined individually for the respective contracts and contracting parties.

Data processing by social networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. The individual social networks we use are listed below.

Social networks such as Facebook etc. can generally analyze your user behavior comprehen-sively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. Like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media presences triggers numerous data protection-relevant processing operations. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the op-erator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cook-ies that are stored on your device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based ad-vertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and data protection provisions of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis
Our social media presences are intended to ensure the widest possible presence on the In-ternet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The anal-ysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which must be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Responsible party and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can assert your rights (information, rectification, erasure, restriction of pro-cessing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the re-spective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).

Please note that, despite our joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full control over the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage duration
The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our sys-tems as soon as the purpose for its storage no longer applies, you request us to delete it, re-voke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Stored cook-ies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data that is stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).
