If you give us your consent to do so, we will create statistical evaluations with the help of a technical solution for recording and evaluating usage behaviour on websites in order to learn more about the actual use of our websites and, if necessary, to improve the websites. We use technical functions to anonymise your data as early as possible. We do not create user-specific profiles.

8. Duration of the storage of data

Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, we will store your data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the relevant purpose (for example, processing a request you have made).

This does not include data that we retain due to legal obligations (typically up to 10 years) or for the defence or assertion of legal claims (typically 3 years).

The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR (retention obligations), as well as Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interest is the defence or assertion of legal claims).

If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. Unless otherwise stated as part of the consent, please address any revocation to our contact details provided in Section 2.

Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests (the legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR), you can object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you or is based on your consent. When exercising such an objection, we will ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the merits of the case and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

If you wish to object to direct advertising, no justification is required. Of course, we will not send you any advertising if you no longer wish to receive it.

Please send an objection to our contact details given in Section 2.

11. Convenience functions

We use techniques such as Javascript and CSS (cascading style sheets) for an optimal presentation of our website (e.g. adaptation to different screen sizes, fade-in menu, input control of the contact form). You can disable the use of these techniques by making the appropriate settings in your browser. In this case, however, parts of our website would no longer be usable for you.
