Visiting our websites
We would like to point out that for the purpose of simplifying the ordering process, joining the association and (later) processing the contract, the IP data of the connection owner will be stored, as well as the name and address of the orderer. In addition, the following data will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the association membership and the order process: Company name, title, name(s) and contact details of the contact person(s) (telephone, fax, e-mail) and the customer number. The data provided by you is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (legal basis Article 6 para. 1 lit. a (consent) and b (necessary for the fulfilment of the contract) DSGVO). Without this data, we cannot conclude the contract with you. No data is transferred to third parties, with the exception of transfers for legal reasons (Article 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO), for example the transfer to our tax advisor for the fulfilment of our legal obligations.
All data from the contractual relationship or the association membership will be stored until the expiry of the legal retention period. The information provided as well as the ordered evaluations and other administrative data relating to the ordering process will also be stored during the ongoing membership of the association.
