Welcome to our website. We take the protection of your data very seriously. That is why we would like to explain below how we process your personal data.
Categories of data; sources of data
Essentially, we process the personal data that you provide us with when sending an enquiry, prior to entering into a contract or when in a contractual relationship with us. In the individual case, and where necessary for performance of the contract, we also process personal data that have been lawfully obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. commercial registers, debtors’ lists, the internet) or that have been lawfully sent to us by third parties (e.g. credit reference agencies). These may be personal data (name, date of birth, legal representatives), address data (postal address, email address, contacts), financial data (name of the account holder, IBAN, BIC), contract data (contract term, services purchased, cancellations), communication data (correspondence, email traffic), advertising data (advertising letters) and other comparable categories of personal data. Particular categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 (1) GDPR may also be processed in the course of our activities. In this case processing is performed on the basis of point (h) of Art. 9 (2) in conjunction with Art. 9 (3) GDPR.
General processing of visitor data
It is in principle possible to use our website without providing any personal data. We should point out, however, that in this case access data will be collected and stored in the server log files. Such data are in particular the following:
the type and version of your browser;
the operating system;
the web page from which you are visiting us;
the date and time of your visit;
your IP address.
We will analyse this information solely in anonymised form in order to prevent attacks and to improve our website (processing of personal data after balancing interests pursuant to point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR), after which it will be erased. We cannot trace the data back to you personally and will not associate them with other data. If there is specific evidence of unlawful use, however, we reserve the right to analyse the data subsequently.
If you make contact with us by email, we will process the personal data you provide us with in order to respond to your enquiry. Once we have finally dealt with your enquiry, we will erase the data unless we have a contractual or statutory duty to retain them.
Processing of personal data by consent (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR)
We will obtain your consent in the individual case for certain expressly designated purposes in connection with the collection of data (e.g. enquiry using a contact form, opening a client account, ordering a newsletter). The data will only be processed if you give us your consent to do so. It is possible that we may be unable to deal with your enquiry without your consent, so can only do so if consent is given. The data will only be processed for the purpose(s) expressly stated. Once given, you can withdraw consent at any time with effect for the future. Withdrawal has no bearing on the lawfulness of processing up to the time of withdrawal.
If you have registered for our newsletter, we will process the data you provide on the basis of your consent pursuant to point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR in order to send you our regular newsletter. All that is needed for registration is an email address. Further details are provided voluntarily. For legal reasons, we will continue to store the IP address and the date of registration. Our newsletter is issued through our service provider belsignum Werbeagentur, Max-Planck-Straße 7, 85716 Unterschleißheim, with whom we have concluded a data processing agreement. Your data in this regard will be stored solely on EU territory. The data will be used solely in order to send the newsletter. The service provider will not make any independent use of the data. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. A link for withdrawing consent can be found at the end of every newsletter email. You can, of course, also withdraw consent using the other means of contact offered.
Processing of personal data for performance of a contract (point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR)
If a contract with us comes about, we use personal data to the extent necessary for performance of the contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract. The purposes of the data processing are governed by the specific content of the contracts, which can be determined from the contract documents.
Processing of personal data after balancing interests (point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR)
We process personal data after balancing interests to the extent that this is necessary for the purposes of interests pursued by us or a third party. Examples of such purposes include:
ensuring IT security and the integrity of our systems;
preventing or solving criminal offences;
establishing or defending legal claims.
“ANGI” creditor information system
Our anchor creditor information system (“ANGI”) enables the creditors of insolvency proceedings to find out about the progress of the proceedings and the status of their filed claims. Access requires a user ID, which will be communicated by the insolvency administrator. The legal basis is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. It is a legitimate interest that we do not have to operate our own server for the creditor information system.

We forward data to other third parties if and insofar as we have instructed them to perform tasks for us. Data are only forwarded if this is necessary for the performance of the assigned tasks.
We work with the following companies:

Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google Analytics);

For the processing of payments within the SEPA direct debit procedure, we forward your payment data to the bank instructed to collect the debit. Otherwise data are only forwarded in the cases allowed by law, such as if there is a statutory duty of disclosure to prosecuting authorities.
Duration of the data storage
We will erase your personal data without undue delay as soon as the data are no longer required for performance of the contractual and statutory obligations. Personal data will be stored for at least as long as necessary for the performance of contractual obligations and the preservation of contractual rights. This period may extend beyond the actual term of the contract, because the data may still be relevant for limitation periods even after the contract has ended. In addition, they cannot be erased until any retention periods required under tax and commercial law have expired.
For the criteria relating to the storage of cookies, please refer to the relevant section.
Rights of data subjects
As a person affected by the processing of personal data, you have the following rights: You have the right to require confirmation of whether personal data are processed. If this is the case, you have the right to access the personal data and the information set out in detail in Art. 15 GDPR.
You have the right to require the controller to rectify inaccurate personal data concerning you without undue delay, and where appropriate to complete incomplete personal data (Art. 16 GDPR).
You have the right to require the controller to erase personal data concerning you without undue delay if one of the reasons itemised in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data are no longer necessary for the purposes pursued (right to erasure).
You have the right to require the controller to restrict processing if one of the requirements itemised in Art. 18 GDPR is met, e.g. if you have objected to the processing, pending verification by the controller.
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you on grounds relating to your particular situation. The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 21 GDPR).
You can contact us at any time using the means of contact offered on the website in order to assert your rights.
Right to object to direct advertising
We sometimes process personal data in order to send direct advertising. In this case you have the right at any time to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such advertising (Art. 21 GDPR). Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes. You can register an objection informally at any time using one of the means of contact indicated in this Data Privacy Statement or in our legal notice.
Right to lodge a complaint
Notwithstanding any other remedy in administrative law or through the courts, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR (Art. 77 GDPR). You can exercise this right with a supervisory authority in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. In Baden-Württemberg the competent supervisory authority is the data protection commissioner (Landesdatenschutzbeauftragte Baden-Württemberg).
