We use social networking plug-ins on our website. To keep you in control of your information, we use the privacy safe "Shariff" buttons.

network and replaces the usual "Share" buttons of social networks. More information about the Shariff project can be found at https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html.

5.8 Use of GoogleMaps
On our website we use the function for embedding GoogleMaps maps from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").
This feature allows the visual display of geographic information and interactive maps. Google also collects, processes and uses data of the visitors of the pages when they call up the pages in which GoogleMaps maps are integrated. Further information on the collection and use of data by Google can be found in Google's data protection information at
Application and use of tracking, analysis tools and social plugins
Happyware currently does not use any other tracking, analysis tools and social plugins, except for the tools mentioned in paragraph 4. Should this change, you will find information about this tool and the purpose of the data processing, the type of data, the legal basis of the data processing and a notice of objection at this point.
Deletion, blocking and duration of storage of personal data
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time required to achieve the respective storage purpose or as required by the various retention periods stipulated by law.
After a storage purpose has ceased to exist or after the retention period provided for by law has expired, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted for further processing in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Data protection rights of the data subject
If you have any questions about your personal data, you can contact us in writing at any time. You have the following rights according to DS-GVO:
8.1 The right to information (sub-item Art. 15 DS-GVO)
8.2 The right of rectification (Art. 16 DS-GVO)
8.3 The right to deletion (Art. 17 DS-GVO)
8.4 The right of restriction (Art. 18 DS-GVO)
8.5 The right to data transferability (Art. 20 DS-GVO)
8.6 The right to object (Art. 21 DPA)
8.7 Right of appeal to the data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DS-GVO in connection with § 19 BDSG)
8.8 Right to revoke consent under data protection law (Art. 7 para. 3 DS-GVO)
Legal basis of the processing
When processing personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 a) of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 para. 1, sentence 1 b) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. This provision also covers processing operations which are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 c) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the execution of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of the security of our online offer.
Transmission of data to third parties
We only transfer data if there is a legal obligation to do so. This is the case if state institutions (e.g. criminal prosecution authorities) request information in writing or a court order is available.
Personal data is not transferred to so-called third countries outside the EU/EEA area.
Legal or contractual provisions on the provision of personal data and possible consequences of not providing them
We hereby point out that in certain cases (e.g. tax regulations) the provision of personal data is required by law or may result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner(s)). For example, it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that the person concerned/the contractual partner must provide his personal data so that his request (e.g. order) can be processed by us at all. An obligation to provide personal data arises primarily when a contract is concluded. If in this case no personal data is provided, the contract cannot be concluded with the person concerned. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject may contact our data protection officer or the data controller. The Data Protection Officer or the Controller will then inform the data subject whether the provision of the required personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract and whether the data subject's concerns give rise to an obligation to provide the personal data or what the consequences are for the data subject if the required data are not provided.
Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision making or so-called profiling in our business relationships.
In addition to these web-specific data protection notices, there is also the possibility to view our transparent information.
