Data processing for the purpose of contacting us takes place in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

For the use of the product, we have concluded a corresponding contract with Tawk.to as our processor in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum.
4. Data subject rights
Upon request, we will be happy to inform you whether and which personal data is stored about you (Art. 15 GDPR), in particular about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data was or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, deletion, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right to lodge a complaint, the origin of your data if it was not collected from us, and the existence of automated decision-making including profiling.
You also have the right to have any incorrectly collected personal data corrected or to have incomplete data completed (Art. 16 GDPR).
Furthermore, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data, provided that the legal requirements for this are met (Article 18 GDPR).
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request transmission to another person responsible (Article 20 GDPR).
In addition, you have the so-called “right to be forgotten”, i.e. you can request us to delete your personal data if the legal requirements for this are met (Article 17 GDPR).
Irrespective of this, your personal data will be automatically deleted by us if the purpose of the data collection no longer applies or if the data processing has been carried out unlawfully.
In accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR, you have the right to revoke the consent you have given us at any time. As a result, we are no longer allowed to continue the data processing based on this consent for the future.
You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time, provided that a right to object is provided for by law. In the event of an effective revocation, your personal data will also be automatically deleted by us (Article 21 GDPR).

6. Duration of Data Storage
The data collected will be stored by us for as long as this is necessary for the execution of the contracts entered into with us or you have not exercised your right to deletion or your right to data transfer to another company.
These cookies are set as so-called first-party cookies (“own cookies”) or third-party cookies (“third-party cookies”). First party cookies are set by the website you are on and are not exposed by browsers across domains. A third-party cookie, on the other hand, is set by a third party, i.e. not by the actual website you are on. The cookies are also divided into technically necessary and technically necessary cookies. Both technically necessary cookies and technically necessary cookies are set on our website in accordance with the following paragraphs.
a) Technically necessary cookies
Technically necessary cookies are absolutely necessary for the operation of our website and lead, for example, to the fact that certain functions are only possible for you in the first place. These technically necessary cookies, which are only required and set for the individual online session, are automatically deleted after you leave our website.
The legal basis for the use of these technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
b) Technically necessary cookies
If you have given your consent, we use so-called technically necessary cookies on our site. The technically unnecessary cookies are mainly used to evaluate the use of the website and user behavior, to compile reports on the activities of visitors to the website and to provide other services related to the use of the website.
The technically unnecessary cookies we use are explained in our cookie banner with regard to their functionality, duration and possible third-party recipients of the data. If certain third-party providers used by us set cookies as part of the service we provide, this will also be referred to separately in our data protection declaration.
The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a GDPR, provided you have given your consent.
8. Social Media
We would like to point out that user data can also be processed outside of the European Union. This can result in risks for users, for example because it could make it more difficult to enforce user rights.
It is also possible that user data can be processed by third parties for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from user behavior and the resulting interests of users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside of the social networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the user. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective social network and are logged in to it).
For a detailed description of the respective processing, we refer to the following linked information from the respective providers. Also, in the case of requests for information or the assertion of your rights as a data subject, we would like to point out that these can be asserted most effectively on the social networks. Only these have access to the data of their users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, you can contact us.
As part of the Shariff solution, links to the social networks listed below are used on our website:
9. Data Security
We endeavor to take all necessary technical and organizational security measures to store your personal data in such a way that they are not accessible to third parties or the public. If you wish to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information transmitted cannot be fully guaranteed with this communication channel. We therefore recommend that you only send us confidential information by post.
