Data privacy

Section 1 Information on the collection of personal data

(1) In the following, we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website. All information that can be used to uniquely identify a person is classed as personal data. This therefore concerns data that can be traced back to a person. Personal data is all data that is related directly to your person, such as first and last name, address, telephone number, e-mail addresses, user behaviour, etc.

Within the scope of data avoidance and data minimisation, we only collect personal data to the extent and for the period of time that is required in order to use our website or that is prescribed by the legislator. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and adhere strictly to the corresponding legal regulations and to this privacy statement when collecting and processing personal data. Should the purpose of data collection cease to exist or the end of the statutory retention period be reached, the collected data will be restricted or erased. Our website can be used regularly without transferring personal data. When we do collect personal data – for example your name, your postal address or your e-mail address – this data collection takes place on a voluntary basis. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent. It is important to note that data is not always transferred securely on the Internet. Protection during data exchange cannot be guaranteed, particularly in the case of e-mail traffic. In line with the basic principles of data avoidance and data minimisation, we only save personal data for as long as necessary or as prescribed by the legislator (statutory storage period). If the purpose for storing the information collected no longer applies or if the storage period ends, we either restrict or erase the data.

(2) The Controller as per Art. 4 (7) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is HARREITHER GmbH (see our legal notice section). 

(3) If you contact us by e-mail or using a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address and potentially also your name and telephone number) is stored by us to respond to your questions. We delete the data collected in this context once it is no longer required or restrict processing where statutory storage obligations are in place.

(4) If we wish to use contracted service providers for individual functions of our website or use your data for commercial purposes, we will inform you of the respective procedures in detail below. We also state the stipulated criteria of the storage period.
