We protect your privacy and your private data. We collect, process and use your personal data in accordance with the contents of these data protection regulations and the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the GDPR. These data protection regulations regulate which personal data we collect, process and use about you. We therefore ask you to read the following explanations carefully.

1.       Collection of personal data

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereafter “data subject”). This includes in particular your name, your e-mail address and, if applicable, your address and telephone number as well as your sales tax details if you are a registered dealer.

Personal data also includes information about your use of our website. In this context, we collect personal data from you as follows: Information about your visits to our website, such as the extent of data transfer, the location from which you access data from our website and other connection data and sources that you access.

The personal data of the persons concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by law expires, unless there is a necessity for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Automatic decision making or profiling does not take place.

2.       Logfiles

Each time you access our site, we collect the following information about your computer: your computer’s IP address, your browser’s request, the time of this request, the status and amount of data transmitted in connection with this request, and information about the browser and operating system used on your computer. We also record the website from which you accessed our site. This data is stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. Temporary storage of the IP address is necessary to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with article 6 (1) f) GDPR. The data collected is stored for 90 days and subsequently deleted.

3.       Cookies

To make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on our website. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal and enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit (long-term cookies). Cookies are used to store and transmit, for example, log-in information, language settings, search terms entered, the frequency of page visits and the use of website functions. You can use your browser to restrict the use of cookies. As a result, our services may no longer function for you or may only function to a limited extent. Our legitimate interest in the processing of your personal data by cookies lies in the functionality and attractiveness of our website. The legal basis for such processing is article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

If you do not wish to use browser cookies, you can set your browser so that cookies are not accepted. Please note that in this case you may only be able to use our website to a limited extent or not at all.

4.       registration feature

We offer you the possibility to register on our website. The data entered in the course of this registration, which can be seen from the input mask of the registration form (name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, VAT ID) are collected and stored exclusively for the use of our offer. They are necessary for the fulfilment of a possible contract and for the execution of pre-contractual measures (e.g. bid submission). The legal basis for this processing of personal data is article 6 (1) b) GDPR. When you register on our site, we will also store your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This serves as security in the event that a third party misuses your data and registers on our site with this data without your knowledge (article 6 (1) f) GDPR). By registering, you agree to the validity of our General Terms and Conditions of Auction. Apart from this, your registration does not involve any obligation whatsoever. The data will not be passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to pass them on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site does not take place either.

Registered persons have the possibility to change the personal data provided during registration at any time. A complete deletion of the registration access from the data stock takes place on request. If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, premature deletion of the data is only possible insofar as contractual or statutory obligations do not provide for deletion.

5.       Newsletter

When you register for our newsletter, we will save your IP address and the date and time of your registration. In the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge, this serves as a safeguard on our part. The data collected will only be used to subscribe to our newsletter. The data will not be passed on to third parties. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and either by sending a message to the contact option described above or via a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter.
