Privacy Notice

A. General information

1. Extent of data processing

We only process personal data collected from our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional web presence and our content and services. As a rule, personal data provided by our users is only processed with their consent. One exception is where statutory regulations permit the processing of data.

2. Legal basis for data processing

Art. 6 (1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis whenever we obtain the consent of the person concerned (“data subject”) for the processing of their personal data.

Art. 6 (1)(b) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data which is necessary for performing a contract to which the data subject is a party. The same applies to processing that is required for carrying out pre-contractual measures.

Art. 6 (1)(f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis when processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of ELISE or a third party, and provided this legitimate interest is not outweighed by the data subject’s interests and fundamental rights and freedoms.

3. Data erasure and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject is erased, anonymised or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if required by European or national law in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which ELISE is subject. Blocking, anonymisation or deletion of the data also takes place if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data in order to conclude or fulfil the contract

B. Contact form

There is a contact form on our website that can be used to contact us electronically. If you use this option, the data entered voluntarily in the input screen is transmitted to us and stored. This normally comprises your email address, first name and surname. We inform you about the actual processing of data while you are using the form and we obtain your consent. Reference is also made to the privacy notice. The data is used solely for processing the conversation.

The legal basis for processing the data when using the contact form, if the user’s consent has been given, is Art. 6 (1)(f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Personal data from the input screen is processed solely for the purpose of acting on the contact request. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the relevant conversation with the user has ended or when the user’s request has finally been processed. The conversation has ended when it is apparent from the circumstances that the issue in question has been finally clarified. The user may at any time withdraw their consent to the processing of personal data vis-à-vis the contact persons listed.

Your personal data will only be transmitted to government organisations and authorities if required by law and/or for the purpose of prosecution in the event of attacks on our network infrastructure. Forwarding to third parties for other purposes does not take place.

C. Rights of the data subject

As the data subject whose personal data is collected within the scope of the above-mentioned services, you have the following rights, unless any legal exceptions apply in individual cases:

  • Information (Art. 15 GDPR)
  • Rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
  • Erasure (Art. 17 (1) GDPR)

E. Use of Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”) is used on this website. The use includes the “Universal Analytics” operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user’s activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users interact with the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit or
