2. Cookies

Cookies are tiny text files that are stored on a user’s browser. They are widely used by websites and servers. Most cookies contain a unique identification number called a cookie ID: a string of characters that websites and servers associate with the browser on which the cookie is stored. This allows websites and servers to distinguish the browser from other browsers that store different cookies. A browser can be recognized by its unique cookie ID. Furthermore, may possibly be used third-party cookies of third-party providers whose contents we use on our company website and our platform. These providers are specifically listed in this privacy policy. The User has the option of rejecting the use of these cookies by deactivating acceptance of cookies in the user’s browser. Cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time. This is supported by all common browsers. If the session cookie of our online platform is deleted, the user will be automatically deregistered from the platform as it is no longer recognizable as a logged in user. Use of the platform without the use of session cookies is not possible.

3. Personal Data

The use of our corporate website is usually possible with any restrictions without the disclosure of personal information. For the use of our online platform, the processing of personal data is inevitable. Personal Data is any information that relates to an identifiable individual such as your name, address, phone number or your e-mail address. Personal data is only collected when you contact us and provide these data to us via phone, e-mail, webchats, completion of forms, through registration or contractual relation.

Specifically, we collect and process the following personal data:

The data collection is carried out by communication of the user or user input; a supplement by us does not take place, except in the context of the perception of your data protection rights. Likewise, there is no enrichment or merger with other data, neither by us nor by third parties, except by your express consent.

GmbH does not take place unless one of the above-mentioned exceptions applies and the transfer serves the stated purpose. The basis for this processing of personal data is Article 6 (1) lit. a, b and f DSGVO.
