HOW WE USE PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use personal data to enable you to visit our website. In doing so, we rely on legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 f) of the General Data Protection Regulation, hereinafter GDPR). The data processing is necessary in this case, so that our web server can transmit the requested contents to your terminal. In detail, we collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server and which is technically necessary for us to display our website and offer you the appropriate language version of the website, i.e. IP address, directory protection user, date and time of the request, accesed page, protocols, status code, data volume, referer, user agent, accessed host name. We also use the data to show you locally relevant content. The IP addresses are stored anonymously (also applicable for IPv6 addresses). The anonymized IP addresses are stored for 60 days. Information on the directory protection user used is anonymized after one day.

- Telephone number (fixed network and/or mobile)
- Fax number (if available & desired)

- date of birth, if applicable
Furthermore, all information necessary for the fulfilment of the contract with you is collected.
The collection of personal data is carried out,
- to identify you as a customer;
- to be able to advise you appropriately;
- to fulfil our contractual obligations to you;
- to comply with our legal obligations:
- to correspond with you;
- for invoicing purposes or, if applicable, in the context of dunning procedures;
- to assert any claims against you.
The processing of personal data is carried out on the occasion of your enquiry to us and is necessary for the purposes mentioned for the processing of your order and for the fulfilment of obligations arising from the underlying contract.
The personal data collected will be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention period for merchants (6, 8 or 10 years after expiry of the calendar year in which the contractual relationship was terminated) and deleted thereafter. This does not apply by way of exception if we are obliged to store the data for a longer period of time due to tax or commercial storage obligations (in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB), the German Penal Code (StGB) or the German Tax Code (AO)) or if you have consented to storage beyond this period.
Transfer of data to third parties
A transmission of your personal data to third parties does not take place in principle. Exceptions to this rule only apply insofar as this is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you. This includes in particular the passing on to teachers or other third parties commissioned by us whose activities are necessary for the execution of the contract. The data passed on may be used by the third parties exclusively for the purposes mentioned.
You have the right to ask the data controller to confirm whether personal data concerning you are being processed; if this is the case, you have a right of access to this personal data and to the information specified in Article 15 of the GDPR.
