GF is very interested in an efficient and secure technical operation of its website and makes reasonable efforts to ensure this, which is why a professional host is contracted as an external service provider to maintain and operate the website. The host stores your personal data collected on this website on its servers. These are mainly IP addresses, contact requests, data you entered in our contact form, meta and communication data, contract data, names, website accesses and other, also technical data, which are generated (partly automatically) when you visit a website and the use of which you may have consented to during the request for COOKIES AND WEB_ANALYSIS.

Our host is obliged to process your data only within the scope of fulfilling its service obligations and to follow the instructions of our data protection regulations for the use of the data.

Unless a specific storage period is specified within these data protection provisions (such as under COOKIES AND WEB_ANALYSIS), your personal data will remain stored until the purpose of the data processing no longer applies. If you exercise your right of deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, with the exception of other legally permissible reasons that can be asserted for the storage of your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law). In this case, too, data will be deleted after the reasons no longer apply.

There is a contact form on our website. In this, you can make inquiries (especially regarding the use of image and text material) and enter various data about yourself, such as name, address or contact details. This data will be used by us in accordance with Art 6 (1) lit b GDPR to respond to your inquiry or request as soon as possible. The provision of the data provided by you is necessary for this purpose.

The data you provide will not be passed on to other recipients.

You can request information about the data stored about you using the contact details given above. In addition, you may, under certain conditions, request the correction or deletion of your data.

If we have received and process your data on the basis of consent given by you, you may revoke this consent at any time with the consequence that we will no longer process your data for the purposes stated in the consent as of receipt of the revocation of consent.
