We are delighted that you are visiting the website of WINKELMANN CONSULT GMBH & CO. KG and thank you for your interest in our company and our services. The protection of your privacy is particularly important to us. In what follows, we inform you about the collection, processing and use of your data. This is always done in accordance with the data protection regulations.

B. General Information
Fundamentally, you can visit the website of WINKELMANN CONSULT GMBH & CO. KG without telling us who you are.
If you voluntarily provide us with your personal data (name, address, e-mail address, telephone number etc.) in the context of an enquiry, we will use this data to send you the offer you have requested or to provide you with information. This data is not stored on the web server and is not sold or published externally. The legal basis for this data collection and data processing is the initiation of a contract in accordance with art. 6, section 1, sentence 1, letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), or your consent in accordance with art. 6, section 1, sentence 1, letter a of the GDPR. Your personal data will only be stored for as long as is necessary to answer all enquiries or until your consent is revoked. If a contract is subsequently concluded, your personal data will be stored until the expiry of the relevant statutory retention periods.

We also automatically receive the following log data:
1. Websites visited
2. Time of access
3. Quantity of transmitted data in bytes
4. Source or link from which you have accessed our page
5. Browser used
6. Operating system used
7. IP address used
An inference from the IP address used to an individual end user is only possible by recourse to provider data of the internet access provider. This recourse is usually only granted to investigating authorities by judicial order in justified individual cases. However, the IP address can be used to identify the responsible internet access provider. This is necessary in order to report cases of abuse to the access provider and to be able to request the provider to remedy the problem. The remaining data is summarised in the statistics in such a way that no more personal information can be recovered from it.
These so-called server log files are stored on a rolling basis for 28 days and the oldest file is automatically deleted during log rotation. The files are evaluated once for general access statistics immediately on the following day after recording and are otherwise referred to exclusively for the analysis of detected malfunctions or in the event of suspected misuse.
Unless otherwise specified in the following sections, data processing is carried out exclusively by WINKELMANN CONSULT GMBH & CO. KG.
In accordance with art. 6, section 1, sentence 1, letter f of the GDPR, this data collection and data processing serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offering, which are considered to prevail in the context of a balancing of interests.

C. Cookies
Cookies are small databases that store user-specific content. We have deliberately avoided cookies that are not necessary. We use a session cookie for your preferred language setting: ppqtrans_cookie_test. This is deleted after closing the session.
Telekommunikation-Telemedien-Datenschutz-Gesetz (TTDSG) [Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act] 

The legal basis for the storage and retrieval of information from the end user’s terminal equipment is consent, in accordance with section 25 (1), sentence 1 of the TTDSG. This consent is requested when the website is called up.
According to section 25 (2), no. 2 of the TTDSG, consent is not required if the storage of information on the end user’s terminal equipment or access to information already stored on the end user’s terminal equipment is absolutely necessary in order for the provider of a telemedia service to provide such a service that has been expressly requested by the user. You can see from the cookie settings which cookies are to be classified as absolutely necessary (often also referred to as ‘technically necessary cookies’) and therefore fall under the exemption of section 25 (2 of the) TTDSG and hence do not require consent.
Please note that the legal basis for the downstream processing of personal data is then derived from the GDPR. The relevant legal basis for the processing of personal data on this website can be found in the further course of this data privacy statement.
