Types of personal data that we process

Depending on the customer or contractual relationship, we process the following categories of your personal data:

  • Contact details (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, telephone number)
  • Contract data within the scope of projects
  • Payment and accounting data (e.g. bank details)
  • Personal data in the context of the employment relationship

Purpose and legal basis

The personal data concerning you will be processed for the following purposes and on the basis of the following legal provisions:

  • Pre-contractual measures and performance of the contract (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b) DSGVO
  • Data processing on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Abs.1 a DSGVO)
  • Data processing for legitimate reasons (Art. 6 Abs. 1 f DSGVO / § 25 Abs. 1 TTDSG)

We also process data on the basis of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit.c DSGVO in order to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. due to commercial or tax law requirements).

Origin of your personal data

We collect your personal data directly from you, e.g. by direct inquiries to us.

Other data is collected automatically or after your consent by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system, or time of site access). The collection of this data takes place automatically as soon as you enter this website.

Some of the data is collected to ensure faultless availability of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties (recipients)

Your personal data will be disclosed or transmitted within the scope of the aforementioned purposes. Recipients of personal data may, for example, be:

  • IT service providers
  • Print and shipping service providers
  • Data destruction service provider
  • Consultants and consulting companies

If data is passed on, this usually takes place as part of order processing. For this purpose, our service providers are contractually bound to secure, confidential and correct processing.

The processing of personal data takes place primarily in the territory of the European Union (EU), as far as we are active in these countries. Data will only be transferred outside the EU (in third countries) or to international organizations if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. of the German Data Protection Act are met.

This may occur if we have to transfer personal data for a overseas project or in connection with the implementation of the project. This will then generally be known in advance by those concerned.

Contract data processing

We have signed a contract for commissioned data processing (AVV) for the use of the above-mentioned service. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that this service only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the DSGVO.

Period of storage

Personal data will be stored for the purposes stated for the duration necessary to fulfil the purposes and if there are no other legal storage obligations (HGB, tax code) or legal reasons for the storage. This means that we will delete your personal data after expiry of the statutory storage obligations, usually 10 years after the end of the contract. Stored cookies remain on your personal end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal record retention periods remain unaffected.

  • The user's IP address (anonymized)
  • Date, time andy type of access

SSL resp. TLS encryption

For security reasons, this site uses SSL resp. TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
