Any collection, processing and use (hereinafter 'use') of data is solely for the purpose of providing our services. The services of Makerist have been designed to use as little personal information as possible. For that matter, 'personal data' is understood as all individual details about a person or factual circumstances of an identifiable natural person (so-called 'affected person').
The following statements on data protection describe what types of data are collected when accessing our website, what happens with these data and how you may object to data usage.
Responsible within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is:

When visiting our website, our web servers temporarily store every access in a log file. The following data is collected and stored until automated deletion:
• IP address of the requesting computer
• Date and time of access
• Name and URL of the retrieved file
• Message if the retrieval was successful
• Detection data of the browser and operating system used
• Website from which access is made
• Name of your Internet access provider
The processing of this data serves: the purpose of enabling the use of the website (connection establishment), the system security, the technical administration of the network infrastructure, as well as to optimize the Internet site. The IP address is evaluated only in case of attacks on our network infrastructure or the network infrastructure of our Internet provider. Furthermore, no input of your personal data is required to use our website.
The processing of personal data requires a legal basis. The GDPR names different legal bases in Art. 6 GDPR.
A legal basis for processing personal data is, for example, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. This refers to the consent given by the user. The consent is earmarked. Processing personal data is also allowed in order to fulfill a contract acc. Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. However, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR must be interpreted broadly, since the initiation of a contractual relationship regarding data processing is also included. This applies in particular to those cases in which the user uses the contact form of Makerist in order to receive a non-binding offer. Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR describes the legal basis of data processing in cases involving a legal obligation to process data. Processing personal data may in exceptional cases be based on Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR. This requires the vital interests of the affected person or other natural person to be protected. This refers to cases which would lead to injury or impairment of life, limb and health. For the initiation of assistance personal data such as the name, contact details and possibly health insurance would be required to be handed over. It is also possible that processing personal data is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The so-called 'legitimate interest' is standardized in this basis, which is to be read with reference to the addendum reason 47 of the GDPR. In the legal sense, Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR is a so-called 'standard of interception', which applies unless other legal bases than those described above apply. When the standard of interception is applied, weighting the specific interests - that of the affected person or that of the data processor – takes place.
We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are met by us, as well as, by external service providers working for us. If we work with other companies to provide our services, such as email and server providers, this will only be done after an extensive selection process. In this selection process, each individual service provider is carefully selected for its suitability in terms of technical and organizational data protection skills. This selection procedure will be documented in writing and an agreement on the order processing of data (order processing contract) will only be concluded if the third party complies with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.
Your information will be stored on specially protected servers. Access to it is only possible for a few specially authorized persons. If you send us data via web forms, the data is always transmitted via an encrypted connection (128-bit TLS).

In the case of parcel deliveries, we also pass on your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address to our contracted processors and service providers so that they can process the delivery and, if necessary, communicate with you to announce and coordinate the delivery of your ordered goods.
