Introduction and overview
We have written this data protection declaration (version 02.01.2022-121910545) in order to explain to you in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and applicable national laws which personal data (in short data) we as controllers – and the processors commissioned by us (e.B. providers) – process in the future and what lawful options you have. The terms used are to be understood as gender-neutral.
In short: We inform you comprehensively about data that we process about you.
If you still have any questions, please contact the responsible body mentioned below or in the imprint, follow the existing links and view further information on third-party sites. Of course, you will also find our contact details in the imprint.
- all online presences (websites, online shops) that we operate
- Social media appearances and e-mail communication
- mobile apps for smartphones and other devices
In short: The data protection declaration applies to all areas in which personal data is processed in a structured manner in the company via the aforementioned channels. Should we enter into legal relationships with you outside of these channels, we will inform you separately if necessary.
In the following data protection declaration, we provide you with transparent information on the legal principles and regulations, i.e. the legal bases of the General Data Protection Regulation, which enable us to process personal data.
As far as EU law is concerned, we refer to REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016. You can of course read this EU General Data Protection Regulation online on EUR-Lex, access to EU law, under https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32016R0679.
We only process your data if at least one of the following conditions applies:
- Consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR): You have given us your consent to process data for a specific purpose. An example would be the storage of your entered data of a contact form.
- Contract (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR): In order to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual obligations with you, we process your data. For example, if we conclude a purchase contract with you, we need personal information in advance.
- Legal obligation (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR): If we are subject to a legal obligation, we process your data. For example, we are legally obliged to keep invoices for accounting. These usually contain personal data.
- Legitimate interests (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR): In the case of legitimate interests that do not restrict your fundamental rights, we reserve the right to process personal data. For example, we need to process certain data in order to operate our website safely and economically efficiently. This processing is therefore a legitimate interest.
Other conditions such as the perception of recordings in the public interest and the exercise of official authority as well as the protection of vital interests usually do not occur with us. If such a legal basis should be relevant, it will be indicated in the appropriate place.
In addition to the EU regulation, national laws also apply:
- In Austria, this is the Federal Act on the Protection of Natural Persons with regard to the Processing of Personal Data (Data Protection Act), DSG forshort .
- In Germany, the Federal Data Protection Act, BDSGfor short , applies.
If other regional or national laws apply, we will inform you in the following sections.
The fact that we only store personal data for as long as is absolutely necessary for the provision of our services and products is a general criterion for us. This means that we delete personal data as soon as the reason for the data processing no longer exists. In some cases, we are legally obliged to store certain data even after the original purpose has ceased to exist, for example for accounting purposes.
If you wish your data to be deleted or if you revoke your consent to data processing, the data will be deleted as soon as possible and insofar as there is no obligation to store it.
We will inform you about the specific duration of the respective data processing below, if we have further information on this.

Web Hosting Introduction
|Web hosting Summary|
👥 Data subjects: Visitors to the website
🤝 Purpose: professional hosting of the website and securing the operation 📓
Data processed: IP address, time of website visit, browser used and other data. More details can be found below or at the respective web hosting provider used.
📅 storage period: depending on the respective provider, but usually 2 weeks
⚖️ legal bases: Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f GDPR (legitimate interests)
What is web hosting?
When you visit websites today, certain information – including personal data – is automatically created and stored, including on this website. This data should be processed as sparingly as possible and only with justification. By website we mean the totality of all web pages on a domain, i.e. everything from the start page (homepage) to the last subpage (like this one). By domain, we mean, for example, beispiel.de or musterbeispiel.com.
If you want to view a website on a screen, use a program called a web browser. You probably know some web browsers by name: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari.
This web browser must connect to another computer where the website's code is stored: the web server. The operation of a web server is a complicated and time-consuming task, which is why this is usually taken over by professional providers, the providers. These offer web hosting and thus ensure a reliable and error-free storage of the data of websites.
When connecting the browser to your computer (desktop, laptop, smartphone) and during data transmission to and from the web server, personal data may be processed. On the one hand, your computer stores data, on the other hand, the web server must also store data for a while to ensure proper operation.
Why do we process personal data?
The purposes of data processing are:
- Professional hosting of the website and securing the operation
- to maintain operational and IT security
- Anonymous evaluation of access behavior to improve our offer and, if necessary, for criminal prosecution or prosecution of claims
What data is processed?
Even while you are visiting our website, our web server, which is the computer on which this website is stored, usually automatically stores data such as
- the complete Internet address (URL) of the accessed website (e.B. https://www.beispielwebsite.de/beispielunterseite.html?tid=121910545)
- Browser and browser version (e.B. Chrome 87)
- the operating system used (e.B. Windows 10)
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL) (e.B. https://www.beispielquellsite.de/vondabinichgekommen.html/)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which it is accessed (e.B. COMPUTERNAME and 184.108.40.206)
- Date and time
- in files, the so-called web server log files
How long is data stored?
As a rule, the above data is stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed by authorities in the event of unlawful conduct.
In short: Your visit is logged by our provider (company that runs our website on special computers (servers), but we do not pass on your data without consent!
The lawfulness of the processing of personal data in the context of web hosting results from Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. f GDPR (protection of legitimate interests), because the use of professional hosting with a provider is necessary in order to present the company on the Internet in a secure and user-friendly manner and to be able to pursue attacks and claims from this if necessary.
As a rule, there is a contract for order processing between us and the hosting provider in accordance with Art. 28 f. GDPR, which guarantees compliance with data protection and guarantees data security.
