  • Date and time of the server request
  • Data volume retrieved

The deletion periods for the server log files are set to a maximum of 8 weeks on the web server of the provider mentioned above. This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to be able to optimize our website and our offers. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

The server log data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 sentence 1 letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in ensuring the proper operation of the website.


On our site we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a contact form. In this case, the information you provide, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site does not take place either.


If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

This data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us.

The data you sent to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.


We process data as part of administrative tasks and the organization of our operations, financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In doing so, we process the same data that we process within the scope of providing our contractual services. The basis of processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c. GDPR, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. Customers, interested parties, business partners and website visitors are affected by the processing.

The purpose and our interest in processing lies in administration, financial accounting, office organization, archiving of data, i.e. tasks that serve to maintain our business activities, perform our tasks and provide our services. The deletion of the data with regard to contractual services and contractual communication corresponds to the information given for these processing activities.

We disclose or transmit data to the financial administration, consultants such as tax consultants or auditors as well as other fee offices and payment service providers. Furthermore, on the basis of our business interests, we store information on suppliers, organizers and other business partners, e.g. for the purpose of later contact. We store this mostly company-related data permanently.


On our website we link to web-based software from Personio SE & Co. KG, Seidlstraße 3 80335 Munich, which supports the detection of operational grievances. By introducing such a system, unfair actions can be detected and prevented at an early stage.

Personio processes your personal data as a whistleblower, provided the tip was not made anonymously, as well as the personal data of the accused person(s), such as name and other communication and content data, exclusively for the purpose of providing information about criminal, illegal, morally reprehensible or to accept and investigate unfair actions in a secure and confidential manner. This data is collected:

  • Information about the whistleblower (if they do not wish to remain anonymous) and the accused, such as first and last name, position/title, contact details, if applicable, other information relating to the employment relationship related personal data
  • Personal information identified in the intelligence agency reports (see paragraph 4), including details of the allegations made and supporting evidence thereof
  • Date and time of the calls (when the report is received via the telephone hotline)
  • Any other information identified in the investigation results and in the follow-up process following the report, e.g. B. Information about criminal behavior or data about illegal or impermissible behavior, if this has been reported

The purpose and our interest in collecting, processing and passing on personal data of the persons named in a report serves to protect legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR). It is a legitimate interest to detect, process and remedy violations of the law and breaches of duty by employees effectively and with a high degree of confidentiality. The Whistleblower Act also requires processing due to a legal obligation (Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter c GDPR).

In some cases, the company is legally obliged to disclose the data to authorities (e.g. law enforcement authorities and legal bodies) or external advisors (e.g. auditors, auditors, lawyers). If the whistleblower has provided his name or other personal data (not an anonymous tip), the identity will not be disclosed – as far as legally possible – and it will also be ensured that no conclusions can be drawn about the whistleblower’s identity.

The personal data will be stored in the respective procedure for as long as necessary for clarification and final assessment, for as long as we have a legitimate interest or as long as there is a legal requirement. This data will then be deleted in accordance with legal requirements. The duration of storage depends in particular on the severity of the suspicion and the reported possible breach of duty.
