2. Processing of personal data

Personal data means all information that can be used to identify you personally. This includes, for example, your name, contact details, and your computer’s IP address.

Inquiry by email, telephone
If you contact us by email, phone or fax, your inquiry including all personal data provided in it (name, email address) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of handling your inquiry.
The processing of this data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR if your inquiry relates to the performance of a contract or where the processing is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries directed to us (Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR), or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR) if consent has been requested.
The data you have sent to us via requests for contact will remain with us until you ask us to delete it or revoke your consent for storage, or when the purpose of the data storage ceases to apply (e.g., after completed processing of your inquiry). Compulsory statutory provisions, in particular retention periods, remain unaffected.
If we use contracted service providers for particular features of our offer or if we would like to use your data for commercial purposes, we select these service providers carefully in each case and monitor them, and inform you in detail below about the respective processes.
