2) Data collection when visiting our website
During the mere informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”).

6.4 Google reCAPTCHA
On this website we use the reCAPTCHA function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland („Google“). This function is primarily used to distinguish whether an entry is made by a natural person or is abused by machine and automated processing. The service includes the sending of the IP address and, if applicable, further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining individual personal responsibility on the Internet and the prevention of misuse and spam.

7) Tools and miscellaneous
7.1 Cookie-Consent-Tool (Borlabs Cookie)
This website uses a so-called “cookie consent tool” to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent. The “cookie consent tool” is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box. Through the use of the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user gives the corresponding consent by ticking the corresponding box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the respective end device of the user if consent has been granted.
The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal user data is generally not processed.
If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.
Further legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. As the responsible party, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
Further information on the operator and the setting options of the cookie consent tool can be found directly in the corresponding user interface on our website.
7.2 – Wordfence
For security purposes, this website uses the “Wordfence” plugin, a service provided by Defiant Inc, 800 5th Ave Ste 4100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA (hereinafter “Wordfence”). The plugin protects the website and the associated IT infrastructure from unauthorised third-party access, cyber attacks and viruses and malware. Wordfence collects the IP addresses of users and, if necessary, other data on your behaviour on our website (in particular URLs called up and header information) in order to recognise and prevent illegitimate page accesses and dangers. In doing so, the collected IP address is compared with a list of known attackers. If the captured IP address is identified as a security risk, Wordfence can automatically block it from accessing the site. The information collected in this way is transferred to a server of Defiant Inc. in the USA and stored there.
The data processing described above is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interests in protecting the website from harmful cyber attacks and in maintaining structural and data integrity and security.
Defiant Inc. invokes the standard data protection clauses according to Art. 46 sentence 2 lit. c DSGVO as the legal basis for the transfer of data to the USA.
If website visitors have login rights, Wordfence also sets cookies (= small text files) on the respective end device used by the visitor. With the help of the cookies, certain location and device information can be read out, which enables an assessment of whether the login-authorised access originates from a legitimate person. At the same time, access rights can be evaluated via the cookies and released via a site-internal firewall according to the authorisation level. Finally, the cookies are used to register irregular access by site administrators from new devices or new locations and to notify other administrators of this.
These cookies are only set if a user has login rights. Wordfence does not set cookies for site visitors without login rights.
If personal data is processed via the cookies, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit f. DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in preventing illegitimate access to the site administration and defence against unauthorised administrator access.
The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. You can find details here: https://www.wordfence.com/help/general-data-protection-regulation/.

9) Duration of the storage of personal data
The duration of the storage of personal data is determined on the basis of the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and – if relevant – additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law).
When processing personal data on the basis of explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO, this data is stored until the data subject revokes his/her consent.
If there are statutory retention periods for data that is processed within the scope of legal or quasi-legal obligations on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, this data will be routinely deleted after the retention periods have expired, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract and/or we have no justified interest in continuing to store it.
When processing personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his/her right to object pursuant to Art. 21(1) DSGVO, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
When processing personal data for the purpose of direct marketing on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his or her right to object pursuant to Art. 21(2) DSGVO.
Unless otherwise stated in the other information in this declaration on specific processing situations, stored personal data will otherwise be deleted when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
