3 Data collection on our website
We use so-called cookies on our website. These do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited. Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services used. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
3.2 Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
This data is not merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
3.3 Contact form
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
3.4 SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
3.5 Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

7 Data subject rights
7.1 Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
7.2 Right to information, blocking, deletion, correction
As a data subject, you have the right at any time to request confirmation free of charge from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed. If this is the case, you have a right to information about this personal data and to the information listed in detail in Art. 15 DSGVO (e.g. origin and recipient of the data and the purpose of the data processing). You also have the right to demand that the controller immediately rectify any inaccurate personal data and, if necessary, complete any incomplete personal data concerning you (Art. 16 DSGVO). Furthermore, you have the right to demand from the controller that personal data concerning you be deleted without undue delay if one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 of the GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued (right to erasure). For this, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
7.3 Right to object
As a data subject, you have the right to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the conditions listed in Article 18 GDPR applies, e.g. if you have objected to the processing, for the duration of the controller’s review. You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you. The controller will then no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or that the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (Article 21 DSGVO).
7.4 Right of appeal
In the event of violations of data protection law, you as the data subject have a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. Thus, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR (Art. 77 GDPR). You may assert this right before a supervisory authority in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement. The competent supervisory authority in data protection matters is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. For Graichen GmbH, the responsible supervisory authority in Hesse is. State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information Hesse: https://datenschutz.hessen.de/
