Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the team at hyphen GmbH. Our contact details can be found in the imprint of this website.
How do we collect your data?
Your data is collected, on the one hand, when you tell us, such as information that you enter in a contact form, and automatically by our IT systems when visiting the website. This is mainly technical data (eg Internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). The collection of this information is automatic as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure a flawless provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior. This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()”, which ensures anonymization of the IP address by curtailment and excludes a direct personal reference.

At any time you have the right to obtain free information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data.

Privacy statement according to the DSGVO
Notes on the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing under the aegis of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) on this website is:
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent previously given at any time. A simple e-mail message to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to have data that we process either based on your consent or in the automatic fulfillment of a contract, in itself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will be undertaken but only as far as it is technically feasible.
In the website, the widely used SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method ensures a connection with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. This is usually 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we’ll use 128-bit v3 technology instead. If a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form this is indicated by the closed image of the key or lock symbol in the bottom status bar of your browser.
We also take the appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Encrypted payments on this website
After the conclusion of a fee-based contract, you have an obligation to send us your payment details (e.g. account number for direct debit authorization), as this data will be required for payment processing. Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa / MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. An encrypted connection is indicated by the browser’s address bar changing from “http: //” to “https: //” and the lock icon in your browser bar. In such encrypted communication, the payment details that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, Blocking, Deletion
You have the right to free information on your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, where apprpriate, a right to the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For further information on personal data, please contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Opposition to advertising e-mails
Contact data received as a result of our editorial requirements will not be used for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the sending of unsolicited advertising information, such as spam e-mails.
Data collection on our website
If you use our website simply for information, so that you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you visit our website, we collect information that is technically necessary for us to display the website to you. This processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO
(a) Information about the browser type and version used
(b) The user’s operating system
(c) The user’s Internet service provider
(d) The user’s IP address
(e) Date and time of access
(f) Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
(g) Websites accessed by the user’s system via our website
The above-mentioned data is processed by us for the following purposes:
(a) ensuring a smooth connection of the website
(b) Ensure easy use of our website
(c) evaluation of system security and stability as well as
(d) for further administrative purposes.
A transfer or other use of the data does not take place. However, we reserve the right to check the server logfiles retrospectively should concrete evidence point to unlawful use. The legal basis for processing personal data using technically necessary cookies is Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details will be taken from the enquiry form including the contact details provided by you there for the purpose of processing the request and if there are follow-up questions on the information stored with us. We will not share this information without your consent. The processing of the data entered into the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message 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 entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you ask us to delete, revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage is finalised (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
Registration on this website
You can register on our website to use additional features on the site. We only use the data entered for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be given in full. Otherwise, we will refuse the registration. For important changes such as the scope of the offer or for technical changes, we use the e-mail address specified during registration to inform you in this way. The processing of the data entered during registration takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing completed already remains unaffected by the revocation. The data collected during registration will be stored by us as long as you are registered on our website and will subsequently be deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or precontractual measures. We only collect, process and use personal data on the use of our Internet pages (user data) insofar as this is necessary in order to enable or charge the user for the use of the service. The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Data transmission at the conclusion of the contract for online shops, retailers and shipping of goods
We transfer personal data to third parties only if this is necessary for order processing, for example, to the company entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the payment by the bank commissioned for the transaction. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. A transfer of your data to third parties without your explicit consent, such as for advertising purposes, will not occur. The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or for precontractual measures.
