We do not have any personal references in our usage data.
We use the above data for the purposes of troubleshooting, generating statistics and measuring website activity with the aim of improving the value and use of our services. As such, we have a legitimate interest to justify the data processing activity pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Within our company, our IT Administrator is the only person with access to this data for the purposes listed above. We work with Vinzenz Goth (Chausseestraße 40b, 10115 Berlin (Mitte)) to maintain and program our online services and have an agreement with them for the purpose of data processing.

Contacting us is always voluntary.
Your data is solely used for the purpose of answering your request or responding to your request for contact, and the technical administration involved.

After your request has been processed, we delete your contact information, at the latest, seven days after your request has been dealt with. This period of storage may be subject to statutory storage periods, for example, when your request is in connection with the processing of a contract or a warranty or guarantee. In this case, we store your request beyond seven days only for the purpose of complying with our legal obligations (Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR). In this case, we delete your data on termination of the statutory storage period (Section 147 (3) Fiscal Code of Germany (Abgabeordnung – AO)), i.e. after a period of 10 years, beginning at the conclusion of the contract. We will delete your data at the end of this retention period without any request to do so on your part.

If you have exercised your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against us, we are obliged to inform all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of this rectification, erasure of the data or restriction of the data processing unless this proves impossible or requires a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed of those recipients.
You have the right to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without interference on our part provided that:
In exercising this right, you may request that personal data related to you be transferred directly from us to another controller insofar as this is technically feasible, and does not infringe on the freedoms and rights of any other person. The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data required for fulfilling a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of an official authority invested in the controller.
You have the right, based on grounds relating to your particular personal situation to object at any time to the processing of your personal data, unless it is based on one of the following grounds:

You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. The revocation may be simply sent to us at any time, e.g., an informal email. Processing of your data which occurred prior to the withdrawal of consent is not affected.
