2. Notes and mandatory information


Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We collect, process and use personal data exclusively in compliancewith the applicable data protection regulations (General Data Protection Regulation / GDPR). These are personal data that we receive from you in your capacity as representative / authorized representative of the legal entity (prospective customer and / or customer). On the other hand, we process personaldata that we have legitimately gained and are able to process from publicly available sources (eg trade and association registers, press, media, Internet). 

A use of the user data thus takes place only on the basis of a legal permission or the existence of a consent. Technological, organizational and contractualsafeguards according to the current state of the art ensure compliance with data protection regulations. This also includes the necessary consistentavoidance of data loss, destruction, manipulation of random or intentional nature as well as data access by unauthorized persons.

If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. In accordance with § 3 (1) FDPA/BDSG, these are individual details of personal or materialcircumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person or, pursuant to Art. 4 GDPR, all information relating to an identified or identifiable person.These include e.g. Information such as names, postal addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses, but also usage data such as your IP address or contentdata that you send us via the contact form. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for whatpurpose this happens.  

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. We store only access data in so-called server log files (see also point 3), such. the nameof the requested file, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. These data are evaluated solely to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and do not allow us to infer your identity. 

Data collection and use for contacting and contracting

We collect personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us as part of an information request or order (written / emailed or by telephone)or contacting us (for example, by contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. Since you do not need to provide your real name in the forms concerned, the use of such functions based on contact data is also possible under a pseudonym (for example, to access the download page for our demo version). 

We use informative data communicated by you exclusively for the execution of the contract and processing of your inquiries. After a final answer to your request or complete processing of the contract, your data will be regularly blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the tax and commercialretention periods. Something else is only valid if you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or if we reserve the right to use thedata beyond that, which is permitted by law and about which we will inform you below. 

We may only disclose information about you if required by law (such as requests for public authorities or judgments), have given your consent and /or order data processors who have been instructed by us to guarantee compliance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR/ FDPA). In the future, if new partners are involved in the consultation and support and this requires a data transfer to these partners, we will ask for this if necessary, a separate consent from you.

A transfer of data to offices in countries outside the EU or the EEA (so-called third countries) only takes place, as far as this is required for theexecution of the customer's orders, required or required by law (eg tax reporting obligations), you have given us consent or within the framework anorder data processing. If service providers are deployed in the third country, they are required to comply with the level of data protection in Europein addition to written instructions by agreeing on EU standard contractual clauses.  

Basically, we point out that the data transmission in the Internet (for example, when communicating by e-mail) may have security holes. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.

To do this, your browser has to connect to Google's™ servers. This gives Google™ knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google™ Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
