As the operator of the website www.skion.de, we attach great importance to protecting your privacy. In doing so, we take particular care in how we treat the personal data with which you can be personally identified. The following gives a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website.
1. Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The responsible party, pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is SKion GmbH, Seedammweg 55, 61352 Bad Homburg vor der Höhe. For any requests concerning data protection issues please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. How do we collect your data and where is it kept?
The data you provide to us by e-mail, telephone, fax or via a contact form (e-mail address, name, telephone number) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions and deal with your concerns.
This data is collected and processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (b) of the GDPR, if your request relates to the execution of a contract or is required to carry out pre-contractual activities. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) of the GDPR) or our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR) in effectively processing the requests addressed to us.
We will retain the data you provide in the contact form until its deletion is requested, your consent for storage is revoked, or the purpose for its storage is no longer applicable (e.g. after your request has been fully dealt with). Any mandatory statutory provisions – particularly statutory data retention periods – remain unaffected.
Other data transmitted by your browser when you visit the website is automatically recorded by our IT systems. This is the technical data necessary to display our website and to ensure its stability and safety. We collect the following data on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 (f) of the GDPR:
- IP address;
- Date and time of request;
- Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT);
- Content of the request (specific page);
- Request status/HTTP status code;

Our website also uses a so-called system cookie, which is required for backend login maintenance and editorial purposes. This cookie does not collect personal information. It will be deleted when you leave our page or close the browser.
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. in the case of communication by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. It is impossible to completely protect data against third-party access.
3. What do we use your data for?
Part of your data is collected to ensure the correct functioning of our website. Other data may be used to analyse the use of our website. It is important that we do not use your personal data for advertising purposes or pass it on to third parties without your consent.

5. Revocation or objection to the processing of your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal message sent to us by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing performed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you exercise your right of objection under Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR, please explain the reasons why your personal data should not be processed in the ways we have done it. In the case of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and will no longer process your personal data – unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms. Another reason may be the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
