WP Cerber Security and Antispam
We use the “Cerber Security & Antispam” service provided by Cerber Tech Inc. New York, NY, 1732 1st Ave, 10128, USA The hacker protection plugin blocks intruders via IP or subnet and protects against further attempts when a set limit of retries is reached. This makes brute force attacks or distributed brute force attacks from botnets impossible. In addition, by creating an IP blacklist or whitelist, it is possible to block or allow logins from specific IP addresses. (More information about the functions under:https://wpcerber.com/). According to the provider, no data is collected or processed in this context – neither by the services nor by the software offered.

The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Third-party content and services
The offer on our website may also include content, services and performances of other providers which supplement our offer. Examples of such offerings include maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or graphics from third parties. Calling up these services from third parties regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This makes it possible for these providers to perceive your user IP address and also to store it.
We make every effort to include only those third-party providers who use IP addresses only for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence on which third party provider may store the IP address. This storage can, for example, be used for statistical purposes. Should we become aware of storage processes by third parties, we will immediately inform our users of this fact.
Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO serves as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain permission for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. On this legal basis, processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal bases will be based if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, the legitimate interest lies in the performance of our business activities and the maintenance of our legal capacity.
Data processing for payment purposes takes place for the performance of the purchase contract. Processing of your data is necessary for the performance of the contract in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
