If you contact us using the form on the website, by email, telephone, fax, letter or in person, we will store the data you provide for at least six months in order to process the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your permission.
The data you provide, such as name, address, telephone number, email address and information about your specific project are required to answer your request, to carry out non-binding or pre-contractual measures (e.g., preparation and submission of a quote) and, if necessary, to fulfil the contract at a later date. Without this data, we unfortunately cannot answer and submit your request or conclude the contract with you. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent, with the exception of transmitting information that is necessary to fulfil the contract to our trusted service providers:
- to our tax advisor, to fulfil our tax obligations
- to our IT service provider, for, e.g., necessary security measures for our data (backups)
- to independent subcontractors, who are relevant for fulfilment of the contract
All service providers named here are based in the EU and are also subject to the GDPR.
If no contract is concluded, the data we have stored will be deleted after 12 months. In the event that a contract is concluded, all data from the contractual relationship will be stored until the statutory retention period has expired (e.g., warranty, product liability, tax retention period, etc.). Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 paragraph 3 of the Telecommunications Act (TKG) and § 6 Paragraph 1 item a (consent) and/or b (necessary for contract fulfilment) of the GDPR.
