5. Cookies

The Controller uses cookies on a number of sites in order to make a visit to the website more attractive and enable the use of particular functions. Cookies are small text files which are placed on the user’s computer. Most of the cookies used by the Controller are deleted from the user’s hard drive at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies will remain on the user’s computer and enable the Controller to recognise the user’s computer at the next visit (so-called permanent cookies). Customers may of course reject the cookies at any time, provided the browser used allows them to do so.

6. Duration of storage

Upon completion of the contract, including full payment of the agreed remuneration, the Customer’s data which must be kept for legal reasons are blocked. These data are then no longer available for further use. When the legal reason for retention no longer applies, these blocked data are deleted.

If the Customer uses the contact form, makes a bulk purchase enquiry or makes contact with the Controller in other ways, the personal data are used for the duration of the processing of the enquiry. Subsequently, the data that have to be kept for legal reasons are blocked. These data are then no longer available for further use.

The Controller is subject to a number of retention and documentation duties, some of which result from the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB) and the German Tax Code (Abgabenordnung, AO). The retention or documentation periods prescribed in these laws amount to two to ten years.

Finally, the duration of storage is also determined by the statutory limitation periods, for instance those stipulated by Sections 195 ff. of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, BGB), which are usually three years but may be up to thirty years in certain cases.

In all other respects, the personal data are deleted unless the Customer has expressly consented to further processing and use of his or her data.

The personal data required to detect, limit or rectify malfunctions or errors in the website are deleted after seven days at the latest.

In addition, Customers have the right to complain to a supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG).

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, any data subject has the right to complain to a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state of their place of residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation, if the data subject believes that the processing of the personal data concerning their person breaches this regulation.
