Collection, processing and storage of personal data

When you visit our web pages, our web servers store by default the IP address assigned to you by your Internet service provider, the web page from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site, the browser type and version used, and the date and duration of your visit. With the exception of the IP address, personal data is only stored if and for the expressly stated purposes if you provide it to us of your own accord, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, a competition or for the performance of a contract. Unless otherwise specified, personal data will only be stored by us for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes pursued.

Use, disclosure of personal data and purpose limitation

The legal basis for data processing in our association is Art 6 (1), letter f DSGVO. Our interests in data processing are in particular to ensure the operation of our association and the security of the website, to study the way visitors use the website, and to simplify the use of the website, as well as for marketing purposes to the extent necessary in each case. In particular, if you provide us with personal information for the purpose of informing you about our products and services, we would like to use your information to survey you as appropriate. Of course, participation in such campaigns is voluntary. If you do not agree to this, you can inform us at any time so that we can block the data accordingly. As a matter of principle, we do not pass on personal data without your consent. If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service. In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("commissioned processing"), we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject. Transfers of personal data to governmental institutions and authorities only take place within the framework of mandatory national legal provisions. A data transfer to bodies or persons outside the EU outside the cases mentioned in this statement does not take place and is not planned. We reserve the right to check data retrospectively if concrete indications of illegal use become known or if it is necessary for the detection and elimination of malfunctions.
