David Schlenter and Frank Wettstein
If you wish to object to the collection, processing or use of your data by us in accordance with these data protection provisions, either in whole or in respect of individual measures, you may address your objection to the person responsible.
This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator.
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory regulations. As new technologies and the constant further development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read through the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Article 4 of the GDPR.
Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
We, the website operator or page provider, collect data on accesses to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store these as “server log files” on the website server. The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you reached the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 180 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of misuse. If data must be retained for evidentiary reasons, it is exempt from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
Common browsers offer the setting option of not allowing cookies. Please note: It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the corresponding settings.

Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data.
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you – for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online services, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your internet provider. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.
- Which data? – We process personal data such as first name, surname, IP address, e-mail address, place of residence, postcode and content details from the contact form.
- How? – We only process personal data with the express permission of the users concerned and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.
- Why? – Personal data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in fulfilling our contractually agreed services and optimising our online offering.
Description and scope of data processing
On our website, you have the option of subscribing to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us.
In addition, the following data is collected during registration:
- Anonymised IP address of the calling computer
- Date and time of registration
- E-mail address
To register for the newsletter, the data requested in the registration process is required. The registration for the newsletter is logged. After registering, you will receive a message at the email address you provided asking you to confirm your registration (“double opt-in”). This is necessary to prevent third parties from registering with your email address.
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus unsubscribe.
We store the registration data for as long as it is needed to send the newsletter. We store the logging of the registration and the mailing address as long as there was an interest in proving the consent originally given; as a rule, these are the limitation periods for claims under civil law, i.e. a maximum of three years.
The legal basis for sending the newsletter is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) in conjunction with Art. 7 DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest in proving that the mailing was carried out with your consent.
You can cancel the registration at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A notification in text form to the contact data mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this purpose. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter.
It is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.
In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is deemed to have ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
The user has the option to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he or she can object to the storage of his or her personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
You have the possibility to contact us via our contact form. To use our contact form, we first need the data marked as mandatory fields from you.
We use this data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO to answer your enquiry.
In addition, you can decide for yourself whether you would like to provide us with further information. This information is provided voluntarily and is not mandatory for contacting you. We process your voluntary information on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
Your data will only be processed to respond to your request. We delete your data if it is no longer required and there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary.
Insofar as your data transmitted via the contact form is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO, you can object to the processing at any time. In addition, you can revoke your consent to the processing of voluntary data at any time. To do so, please contact the e-mail address stated in the imprint.
