III. Processing of personal data by Intention

In the following, we wish to give you an overview of the ways in which we protect your personal data when you access our website and what kinds of personal data we process for which purposes and to what extent.

1. Processing of data when accessing our website – log files

Data of a general nature is automatically recorded when you access our website. This information (server log files) contains the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain names of your internet service provider and similar information. In addition, the IP address is also transferred and used to provide the service requested. This information is necessary from a technical perspective in order to display the website content requested by you correctly and is mandatory for using the internet.

These log files are anonymised or deleted by us as soon as you end your session. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para 1 (1f) of the GDPR.

Pursuant to our IT security policy, all log files generated will be stored for a period of two weeks for the purpose of identifying and analysing any potential attacks against our website. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para 1 (1f) of the GDPR.

The log files created are stored in pseudonymised form for two years to optimise our website for marketing purposes and, for example, to recommend to our visitors products which have been of interest to other customers. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para 1 (1f) of the GDPR.

2. Processing of data when using our website – your requests

If you submit a request by email or using the contact form, we store your data to process and respond to you. These details are stored as evidence for a period of up to two years. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 sentence 1 letter. f GDPR.

3. Information on how data security is maintained

We take technical and operational security measures on our website in order to protect your personal data held by us from being accessed by third parties, lost or misused, and to ensure secure data transfer.

Please note that unintended access to data by third parties may occur due to the nature of the internet. It is therefore also your responsibility to protect your data from misuse by using encryption or other means. Without the relevant security measures, unencrypted data may be accessed by third parties, even when it is transferred by email.

4. Use of Google Maps
This website uses the product Google Maps provided by Google Inc. By using this website, you grant your consent to the collection, processing and use by Google – as well as by their representatives and other third parties – of the data collected by automated means.

This concerns cookies which are used to record user behaviour on our website and cookies which are used for advertising.

The use of tracking cookies allows us to recognise users when they return to our website and associate user behaviour with an internally assigned identification number (pseudonym). This allows us to record repeated visits to our website and analyse them together.

The following tracking cookies are used:

Tracking by Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files saved on your computer. They help analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website will normally be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Due to the activation of IP address anonymisation for this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will your entire IP address be transmitted to Google in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and to perform other services for us concerning website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted from your browser to Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent cookies being saved on your computer by adjusting your browser settings; however, please note that this may mean that you will not be able to use all the functions of this website.
