Collection of General Data and Information

To the furthest possible extent, we always leave it up to you if you want to share your data with us. Some data, known as inventory data, is transmitted automatically by your computer. This includes your IP address, browser type and version, and the date and time of your visit.

When using this general data, LAUDA does not trace it to the individual in question. The information is required to deliver the content of our website correctly, to optimize its functional capacity, and to provide the authorities with the necessary information in the event of a cyber attack.

This data is therefore evaluated by LAUDA on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR) to improve the quality of our advice, both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for personal data that is processed by us. Customer data collected by us will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected. You can find out how we store data in the case of applications in the section ‘Data protection for applications and in the application procedure’.
