5.      SSL or TLS encryption

II.     General information on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

In principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Article 6 para. 1, lit. a, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 para. 1, lit. b, GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual activities.

To the extent that processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation that governs our business, Article 6 para. 1, lit. c, GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or any other natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 para. 1, lit. d, GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 para. 1, lit. f, GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and retention duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for the retention ceases to exist. In addition, such retention may take place if provided for by the European Union or national legislature, in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the responsible person is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a retention period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further retention of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfilment of the contract.

4. Data transfer at the conclusion of the contract for services and digital content

We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary within the scope of the contract, for example to the bank responsible for processing the payment.

A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. A transfer of your data to third parties, such as for advertising purposes, without explicit consent does not occur.

Legal basis for the data processing is Article 6 para. 1, lit. b, GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.

  • Operating system of the user
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the system of the user comes to our website

The data will also be stored anonymously in the log files of our system. Storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

1. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data (and log files) is Article 6 para. 1, lit f, GDPR.

2. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

This also comprises our legitimate interest in data processing as per Article 6 para. 1, lit f, GDPR.

3. Retention period

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for provisioning the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed.

When storing the data in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

4. Opt-out and removal options

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the retention of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no opt-out option on the part of the user.

Inquiry type, free text field for product nomination/ quantity, name, e-mail, address, company, street/number, zip code, city, country, free text field for message

At the time of sending the message, the following data are also stored:

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is in the presence of consent of the user as per Article 6 para. 1, lit. a, GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Article 6 para. 1, lit f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, then the additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 para. 1, lit. b, GDPR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us only to process the contact. In the case of contact via e-mail, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4. Retention period

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. For the personal data from the input form of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. This shall be assumed if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.

The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted no later than after seven days.

5. Opt-out and removal options

The user has the possibility at any time to revoke his consent to the processing of the personal data. If the user contacts us, he may object to the storage of his personal data at any time.

For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail or by post/fax to the contact address given at the start (point I.) is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

In case of revocation of the storage the conversation cannot be continued.

The data of the contact form are stored or processed on the server of the hosting provider iMi digital GmbH, Matheus-Muller-Straße 3, 65343 Eltville am Rhein and transmitted to us automatically. iMi digital will neither use this data for its own purposes nor pass it on to other third parties.
