- a) When visiting the website
When you visit our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically deleted
- IP address of the requesting computer,
- Date and time of access,
- Name and URL of the retrieved file,
- Website from which the access was made (referrer URL),
- browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, as well as the name of your access provider.
The aforementioned data is processed by us for the following purposes
- Ensuring a smooth connection to the website,
- Ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
- analysing system security and stability and
- for other administrative purposes.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
- b) Contact via email/contact form
If you contact us electronically (by email or via a contact form), the personal data you send to us will be collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your enquiry or for contacting you and the associated technical administration.
The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If your contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Your data will be deleted after final processing of your enquiry; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary. After expiry of the retention period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required for contract fulfilment or contract initiation and/or if we no longer have a legitimate interest in further storage.
The transmission of your data via the contact form provided on the website is encrypted. Please note that you should only send encrypted emails to us in order to protect the confidentiality of your enquiry from third parties. If you wish to communicate via PGP, please let us know.
3. handling of your personal data
Your personal data will be processed solely by EGOTEC AG and will not be passed on to third parties without your prior consent. We take all necessary technical and organisational security measures to store your personal data in such a way that it is protected against unauthorised access and misuse.
When handling data, our employees are obliged to comply with the provisions of the BDSG and the GDPR as well as the various relevant national data protection laws.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS. Our servers are protected by firewalls and virus protection. Back-up and recovery as well as role and authorisation concepts are a matter of course for us.
4. how long is the data stored?
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes stated herein or for the various storage periods stipulated by law. Once the respective purpose no longer applies or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

To ensure that data can be blocked at any time, this data must be stored in a lock file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of the data, provided there is no legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request.
You can make changes or withdraw your consent with effect for the future by notifying us accordingly. You can do this by contacting us directly using the contact details above or by sending an email to
