a. Consent (Art. 6 (1) s. 1 lit. a) GDPR)
As far as you have given us consent to process your personal data for certain purposes (e.g. use of data for marketing purposes, cookie use, contact form), the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 (1) s. 1 lit. a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. Consent given can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
b. For the fulfillment of contractual obligations or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 (1) s. 1 lit. b) GDPR)
In order to fulfill our contractual obligations in the individual case or also to carry out pre-contractual measures that take place upon request, we process personal data for the fulfillment of the contract. The purposes of data processing result primarily from the specific contractual relationship and may include, among other things, needs analyses and consulting. The further details on the data processing purposes can be found in the contract documents and terms and conditions.
c. Due to legal requirements (Art. 6 (1). s. 1 lit. c) GDPR)

An active transfer of personal data to a third country will only take place if this has been expressly indicated within the scope of the aforementioned services and if the prerequisites of Art. 44. GDPR are given. A third country is a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in which the GDPR is not directly applicable. For the USA, the EU Commission has not issued an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 (1) GDPR.
12. CRITERIA FOR DETERMINING THE PERIOD FOR WHICH PERSONAL DATA ARE STORED
The criteria for determining the duration of storage are based on the end of the purpose and the subsequent statutory retention period. If the data is no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations, it is regularly deleted, unless its further processing - limited in time and scope - is necessary for the following purposes:
Preservation of evidence within the framework of the statutory limitation provisions: In accordance with Sections 195 of the German Civil Code (BGB), the regular limitation period is 3 years, but in special circumstances up to 30 years.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook page, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed information on this under the following links:http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights and Supplementary Agreement for Page Insights https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum.

The primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of Insights Data lies with Facebook.
The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. and may be transferred outside the European Union in the process.

The data use policy is available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy
The entire Facebook "Data Policy" can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy
In what way Facebook uses data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.
When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the "login notification" function); if necessary, this enables Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID is located on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Via Facebook buttons embedded in websites, it is possible for Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile.
If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook, deactivate the "stay logged in" function if necessary, delete the cookies present on your device and exit and restart your browser. This will allow you to use our Facebook page without your Facebook identifier being revealed based on the information present in the cookies.
