Your IP address will not be stored on our servers. We process this data based on statutory provisions which allow the processing (1) because it is required to fulfil the agreement on the use of or website (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b) GDPR) and (2) we have a legitimate interest in ensuring the functionality and fault-free operation of our website and in being able to offer a service tailored to the user which is not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f) GDPR).
When you actively provide information when contacting us

In case of online forms, the purpose for which you provide us with your personal data can be found on the form itself, generally the purpose will be to communicate with you.
If you contact us via e-mail, phone, fax or an online contact form provided on our website, we process personal data as far as provided by you: your name, company, profession, address data, e-mail address, phone number, fax number, content and type of your request and possible further information provided by you for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. We do this based on your prior given consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a) GDPR) or, in order to execute a contract you are party to (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b) GDRP), or based on our legitimate interest in communicating with you and answer your inquiry, which is not overridden by your interests, rights or freedoms since you contacted us yourself (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f) GDPR). We will not use the information as a basis for contacting you further for marketing purposes, unless you have given us your explicit consent to do so.
Your contact details will be stored after the inquiry has been completed, in order to be able to react to follow up inquiries, if these arise. Details provided on online forms are always collected using a secure connection to protect personal information from manipulation or unauthorized access.

Recipients of your personal data
In order to provide our website we make use of external service providers (“Processors”), such as hosting service providers, who thereby get access to your personal data. All Processors are carefully chosen by us and regularly checked. These processors may only process personal data for the purposes determined by us and may only process data in accordance with this Data Protection Statement and applicable data protection laws.
We store your data in cloud. This means that your personal data may be processed by cloud service providers like Microsoft and stored in different countries within the European Union. We require these providers to implement similar data protection measures as we take based upon contractual arrangements.
In order to be able to handle your inquiries, we will forward your inquiry, including your personal data as provided by you, to your local country contact. This may lead to your personal data being transferred to a third country outside of the European Union, which may not provide a similar level of data protection. With regard to those countries we have provided appropriate safeguards in order to secure your personal data to a degree that equals the level of data protection in the European Union. These safeguards are: Standard Contractual Clauses that have been issued by the European Commission or commiseration in the US-Privacy Shield. Where no safeguards are provided we will ask you for your consent.
We will not disclose your personal data to any governmental authority, unless required by law. Our employees, agencies, and retailers are obliged to respect the confidentiality and protection of your personal data.
