Sources and data for the processing of personal data
We process personal data that we receive from you in the course of your internet use or that you have transmitted to us via the contact form.
Data is stored in server log files, which are collected and automatically stored by the provider and mostly transmitted to us by your browser. These are:
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Date and time of the server request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Web browser and operating system used
- (Complete) IP address of the requesting computer
- Transmitted data volume
Furthermore, we may process other data comparable to the above categories.
We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection setup of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file is used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data or the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
Purpose of the processing and legal basis
We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):
Within the scope of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO)
Insofar as necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfilment of a possible contract with you in order to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties. We collect the data listed above to ensure a smooth connection setup of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file serves to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. In addition, we store your data for reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server.
Examples in this context:
- Assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes;
- Ensuring IT security and IT operations;
- Measures for business management and further development of services
In the context of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO and Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO)
Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Consent given can be revoked at any time.
Please note that the revocation only takes effect for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.
Due to legal requirements, Art. 6 lit. c) DSGVO, or in the public interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) DSGVO
In addition, we are subject to various legal obligations, i.e. legal requirements (e.g. commercial law, tax laws, etc.). Insofar as data is processed in this regard, this is done exclusively on the basis of these regulations.
Passing on the data
Within the company, those departments receive your data that need it to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. Processors appointed by us (Art. 28 DSGVO) may also receive data for these purposes.
With regard to the transfer of data to recipients outside the company, please note that we will only transfer your data if this is permitted or required by law, if you have given your consent or if we are authorised to provide information. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data can be, for example: public offices and institutions (e.g. public prosecutor's office, police, supervisory authorities) if there is a legal or official obligation or other offices (e.g. lawyers, tax consultants, auditors).
Further data recipients may be those bodies for which you have given us your consent to transfer data.
Duration of storage
To the extent permitted by law, we process and store your personal data, in particular as long as this is necessary to fulfil the respective purposes.
Data transfer to third countries
Data is only transferred to third countries (countries outside the European Economic Area - EEA) if this is required by law or you have given us your consent. We will inform you separately about the details, if required by law.
The "Google Fonts" service of the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google") is integrated on our homepage. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. If data is transferred to a third country, this is based on the existence of the standard contractual clauses in force since September 2021.
You can find more information on this under
With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our website and do not have to upload them on our own server. Google Fonts is necessary to keep the quality of our website high.
We use Google Fonts to be able to present our entire online service in a uniform manner.
The legal basis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed, provided that there are no legal obligations to retain data.
