This stored data includes, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider. This data is used exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our services. It is not possible to assign this data to a specific person.
Collection and processing when using the contact form
When using the contact form, we collect your personal data (first name*, last name*, address, telephone*, e-mail address*, just ask us*) only to the extent provided by you (the data marked with * represent minimum information that we need to process your request). The data processing serves the purpose of contacting you. By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the transmitted data.

You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out based on the consent until revocation.

The processing is carried out based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO for the legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purposes. The data collected from you in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. An assignment of the data to your person is therefore no longer possible. The data is not stored together with other personal data from you.
