Introduction and general information
Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of personal data is very important to us. Below you will find information how we handle visitor data that is collected through the use of our website. The processing of personal data takes place in accordance with the legal regulations on data protection.
Responsible within the meaning of data protection law:
Martyna Berenika Linartas
Our data protection declaration should be simple and understandable for everyone. In this data protection declaration, the official terms of the data protection regulation (DSGVO/GDPR) are usually used. The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR.
Data processing by visiting our website
When someone accesses our website, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via the person’s Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between the visitor’s Internet browser and our web server:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status
- Web browser and operating system used
- Full IP address of the requesting machine
- Amount of data transferred
We collect the listed data in order to ensure a smooth connection to the website and to enable users to use our website comfortably. In addition, the log file is used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 ABs. 1 lit. f GDPR.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to ward off attempts to attack our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. Based on this data, it is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons. After one year at the latest, the data will be anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to relate it to individual users.
The data may also be processed anonymously for statistical purposes. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the users, a comparison with other databases or a transfer to third parties does not take place at any time.
Contact via email
From people who send us inquiries via e-mail, the information from e-mail, including the first and last name given there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. An e-mail address is required for contact information; providing your name and telephone number is voluntary. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR and, if applicable, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b GDPR, if your request is aimed at concluding a contract. Your data will be deleted after the request has been processed, provided there are no legal storage requirements to the contrary. In the case of Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. GDPR, you can object to the processing of personal data at any time.
Use of Matomo
This website uses the advertising analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org), a service provided by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, (“Matomo”) on the basis of our legitimate interest in statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR data is collected and stored. Pseudonymised usage profiles can be created and evaluated from this data for the same purpose. Cookies can be used. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the Internet browser’s cache. The data collected with the Matomo technology (including the pseudonymised IP address of the visitor) is processed on our servers.
The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify visitors to this website and is not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. If the visitor does not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data from their visit, they can object to the storage and use at any time with a mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in the browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Visitors should please note that the complete deletion of their cookies means that the opt-out cookie is also deleted and may have to be reactivated by the visitor. Objection: Interested parties please enter the HTML code in the result that enables the data subject to object.
In some cases, cookies are also used to simplify website processes by saving settings (e.g. providing options that have already been selected). If personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing takes place in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR either to implement the contract or in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests in the the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit. Visitors can set their browser so that they are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. The cookie settings can be managed for the respective browser.
Visitors can also individually manage the cookies of many companies and functions used for advertising. Most browsers also offer a so-called “Do Not Track” function, which visitors can use to indicate that they do not want to be “tracked” by websites. If this function is activated, the respective browser tells ad networks, websites and applications that visitors do not want to be tracked for the purpose of behavioral advertising and the like. Information and instructions on how to edit these functions can be obtained depending on the browser provider.
Data transfer and recipients
A transmission of the personal data of visitors to third parties does not take place except:
– if we have explicitly pointed this out in the description of the respective data processing,
– if visitors have given their express consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a GDPR, the transfer according to Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
– in the event that there is a legal obligation for the transfer according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c DSGVO and insofar as this is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with visitors according to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence Letter b GDPR.
We also use external service providers for the processing of our services, which we have carefully selected and commissioned in writing. You are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked by us. With whom we may have concluded order processing contracts in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. These are service providers for web hosting, the sending of e-mails and the maintenance and care of our IT systems, etc. The service providers will not pass this data on to third parties.
In accordance with Art. 32 GDPR, we take appropriate technical measures, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the type, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the different probability of occurrence and severity of the risk for the rights and freedoms of natural persons and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk. This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content.
Duration of storage of personal data
