Purpose of the data processing
We process the personal data that we receive from our customers and other business partners in the course of our business relationship with them and other persons involved in this relationship or that we collect from their users when operating our websites, apps, shops and other applications. Data processing is necessary for the establishment and execution of a business relationship and the fulfilment of the associated contractual obligations. If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for specific purposes (for example, when registering to receive newsletters or providing your e-mail address in connection with the contact form), we will process your personal data within the scope of and based on this consent, unless we have another legal basis and we require such a basis. Consent that has been granted can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.
Information and data security
(Article 8, Article 9, Article 10 VDSG)
In close cooperation with our operating partners, we make every effort to protect your data as well as possible from unauthorised access, loss, misuse or falsification. We have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that regulations on data protection are observed and that the security of information is based on recognised standards and specifications and is continuously adapted.

Our website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographical information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of the map functions by users. The cooperation with Google LLC in terms of data protection law is based on a concluded agreement on joint responsibility, available at https://privacy.google.com/intl/de/businesses/mapscontrollerterms/.

We use Hubspot, a service provided by Hubspot Inc. of the United States, for analysis and communication purposes on this site. (hereinafter "Hubspot"). Hubspot uses web beacons and cookies to help us analyze your use of our site. In other words, when you contact us, subscribe to our newsletter, download a publication, or submit another form integrated from Hubspot, your activities on our site will be associated with your cookie, if you agree, allowing us to analyze your use of the site (e.g., pages visited, date and time of visits, forms filled out, documents downloaded).

Linking Social Media Pages
We also use so-called plug-ins from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, XING or Instagram on our websites. This is always visible to you (typically via corresponding symbols). We have configured these elements so that they are deactivated by default. If you activate them (by clicking on them), the operators of the respective social networks can register that you are on our website and where and can use this information for their purposes. The processing of your personal data is then the responsibility of this operator in accordance with their data protection regulations. We do not receive any information about you from him.

Retention period and deletion of stored data
We will retain your personal data for as long as we consider it necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable laws or for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. We will delete your personal data as soon as it is no longer required and in any event after the maximum retention period of five or ten years required by law. Data that are no longer required and for which there is no legal obligation to retain them will be deleted once the purpose and justification for doing so no longer apply.
The storage of personal data processed on systems provided for customers and operated by us is governed by the customer's legally or professionally prescribed storage and retention periods.

- Destruction (Article 18 DSGVO)
- Appeal (Article 28 DSG)
- Enforcement of the rights of data subjects (Art. DSG 15)

We reserve the right to update the information listed in our data protection declaration without prior notice or to adapt it to new processing methods. The current data protection declaration can be accessed at any time at the aforementioned website.
