In accordance with the principle of data minimization, we only process personal data if this is absolutely necessary for the purposes described in this data protection declaration or for the fulfillment of a desired purpose. There is no disclosure of your personal information to third parties, if this is not necessary and not without your consent. We use your personal information to process your order, to respond to your request or to give you access to special information and offers.

We use this technical access information based on Art. 6 §1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interest) exclusively in order to improve the attractiveness and usability of our websites and, if necessary, to identify technical problems and disruptions on our website at an early stage.

5 INTEGRATION OF SERVICES AND CONTENT OF THIRD PARTIES
It may happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included in this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party provider") perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address they could not send the contents to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we do not have any influence on this if the third parties provide the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.

This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions. Insofar as it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 §1 lit. c DSGVO serves as legal basis.
In the case that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 §1 lit. d DSGVO serves as legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 §1 lit. f DSGVO serves as legal basis for processing.
