We take technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons and to guarantee the protection of your rights and compliance with the applicable data protection regulations of the EU and the Federal Republic of Germany (Art. 32 DSGVO).
The measures taken should guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of your data as well as the availability and resilience of the systems and services when processing your data in the long term. They should also quickly restore the availability of the data and access to them in the event of a physical or technical incident.
Our security measures also include encryption of your data. All information that you enter online is technically encrypted and only then transmitted.
Our data processing and security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
Our employees are obliged in writing to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the data protection requirements of the DSGVO.
If certain data fields are designated as mandatory fields and/or marked with an asterisk ( * ), the provision of this data is either required by law or contract, or we need this data for the conclusion of the contract, the desired service or the stated purpose. Of course, you also have the right to specify the data in the mandatory fields at your discretion. Failure to provide this information may result in the contract not being fulfilled by us or the desired service not being provided or the stated purpose not being achieved.
a) Contact / Inquiries
If you have any questions or requests, please do not hesitate to contact us. We process your data to answer your inquiries (Art. 6 Para. 1 b, f DSGVO). The communication of address and telecommunication data marked as mandatory data is necessary in order to process and answer your request. The voluntary provision of further data makes it easier for us to process your enquiry. After answering your enquiry, we generally store the information from your enquiry for three months in the event of further enquiries, unless it is a matter of commercial or business letters, in which case we store it for at least six years (§ 257 para. 4 HGB, § 147 para. 3 AO, Art. 6 para. 1 c DSGVO).
b) Orders and subscriptions
In the case of an order, a subscription or other contractual enquiries, we initially process your personal registration, address, telecommunications, order and/or financial data for the processing of the order, the subscription or other contractual enquiry and for the corresponding invoicing (Art. 6 para. 1 b DSGVO). Insofar as data are marked as mandatory data, they are required for the processing or settlement of the corresponding contract or for invoicing. For certain orders and subscriptions, you must first register (see b.). Your data relevant to the order, your subscription or other contract-related enquiries and the associated documents (e.g. commercial letters, invoices) will be stored for six years after conclusion of the contract in accordance with the statutory provisions (§ 257 Para. 4 HGB) or ten years (§ 147 Abs. 3 AO).
c) Extended storage periods
The storage periods stated can be extended accordingly if in individual cases, in particular if the data are processed for different purposes, a longer legal or contractual storage period exists.
You have the right to object to the processing of your data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation if the legal requirements are met (Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO).
If you object to the processing of your data for advertising purposes or wish to revoke your consent (Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO), a brief message to our data protection officer by e-mail to email@example.com or by post to OB//CC online business & community communication GmbH & Co. KG, Data Protection Department, Frankfurter Str. 8, 36043 Fulda. Your data will then no longer be processed for the advertising purposes covered by the advertising objection or the revocation of consent.
This does not affect the legality of the processing carried out up to the point of objection or revocation.
Following your objection to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes or the revocation of your consent, we are obliged under data protection law pursuant to Art. 21 para. 3 DSGVO to include the data required for this purpose (name, address, e-mail address) in our internal advertising blacklist and to store (block) it permanently - only for this purpose - and to use it for comparison with our future advertising files (Art. 6 para. 1 c, f DSGVO). This will ensure that your advertising objection or the revocation of your consent is observed on a permanent basis.

On this website data is collected and stored using the web analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org), a service of the provider InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6010 Wellington, New Zealand, ("Matomo") on the basis of our justified interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. From this data, pseudonymised user profiles can be created and evaluated for the same purpose. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the Internet browser of the page visitor. The cookies enable, among other things, the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected using Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) is processed on our servers. The information generated by the cookie with a pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify the visitor to this website and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.
If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can object to its subsequent storage and use at any time by mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.
You have the possibility to prevent the analysis and linking of your actions. This will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and improving usability for you and other users.

The processing of this so-called server log data is necessary for the provision of the service for technical reasons and thereafter to ensure system security or for documentation purposes. The data is anonymised for processing for technical purposes or to ensure system security at the latest after seven days by shortening the IP address, unless further storage of the IP address is required for documentation purposes (Art. 6 para. 1 c, Art. 5 para. 2, Art. 7 para. 1 DSGVO).
