Data Generation: Two Ways
- Active Contact with Us
When you get in touch with us, whether through email (email@example.com), our website’s contact form, or other means, we retain the information you provide for at least six months. This is done to address your queries and to assist with any follow-up questions. We never share this data without your explicit consent.
- Passive (Indirect) Contact via the Website
We utilize cookies for statistical analysis of website usage through Google Analytics, represented by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Data processing adheres to legal requirements outlined in § 96 para. 3 TKG, Art. 6 para. 1 lit a (consent), and/or f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR. If you have previously consented in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit a DS-GVO, third-party cookies are employed to track and analyze your user behavior during website visits.
Our primary aim, guided by GDPR’s legitimate interest provisions, is to improve our services and web presence. To respect user privacy, we pseudonymize user data, ensuring user privacy.
Cookies play a crucial role in achieving this goal. They enable us to analyze website usage patterns anonymously. These insights are transmitted and stored on the provider’s server. Rest assured, cookies are small text files stored on your device via your web browser and do not cause any harm.
For those who opt-out, no such cookies will be used. You can prevent cookies from being stored altogether by configuring your browser settings. Additionally, we’ve established an appropriate contract for order data processing with our provider. While your IP address is recorded, it is promptly pseudonymized, allowing for only rough localization.
Our relationship with the web analytics provider is based on officially recognized data protection levels, such as the EU’s Privacy Shield for the USA, or adherence to officially recognized special contractual obligations, also known as “standard contractual clauses.”
Data Necessity and Retention
Data necessary for website functionality is processed and stored only for the duration of your visit to our website. Typically, log data and IP addresses are retained for 7 days to protect our systems from attacks, investigate data security incidents, and address damage claims as needed, until final resolution.
