Analysis tools and tools from third-party providers
When you visit our website your browsing behaviour may be statistically evaluated. This is mainly carried out using cookies and what are known as analysis programs. Your browsing behaviour is generally analysed anonymously; it cannot be traced back to you. You can refuse consent for this analysis or prevent it by refraining from using particular tools.

The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or in conjunction with others determines the purposes and methods of personal data processing (e.g. names, email addresses and the like).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. If you have previously given your consent, you can withdraw it at any time. You do not need to complete a form to do this; an email to us will suffice. The legality of the data processing that has been carried out before the withdrawal of consent remains unaffected by it.
Right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of data protection law, the affected party has a right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority in matters of data protection is the data protection commissioner for the particular German state in which the company is registered.

Right to data portability
You have the right to see data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilling a contract. You can request that this data is sent to yourself or to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only be implemented insofar as it technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and in order to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You have an encrypted connection whenever you see that the browser’s address line changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock symbol appears in the address bar.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, erasure
Under the applicable legal provisions you have the right to information about your stored personal data, its origins and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing, as well as the right, where applicable, to have your data corrected, blocked or erased, at any time and free of charge. For more on this and other questions about personal data you can contact us at any time using the address provided in the site notice.
Objection to advertising emails
Any use of contact details published as part of the duty under German law to display a site notice (Impressum) in order to send unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby disallowed. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal measures in the event of unrequested sending of advertising information, for example in the form of spam emails.
3. Data collection on our website
The internet pages sometimes use “cookies”. Cookies do no damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help to make our service more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser upon your next visit.
You can change the settings on your browser so that you are informed about the placing of cookies and so that you can choose between allowing cookies only on an individual basis, accepting cookies for particular circumstances, barring them completely or automatically deleting cookies when you close the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be impaired.
Cookies necessary for implementing electronic communication processes or for providing particular functions that you want (e.g. shopping basket function) are saved on the basis of Art. 6(1) point f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies to enable technically correct and optimised provision of its services. Where other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your browsing behaviour) are saved, these are treated separately in this data protection statement.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in “server log files”, which your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:
- browser type and version
- operating system
- referrer URL
- host name of the computer
- time of the server enquiry
This data is not linked with other data sources.
The basis for the data processing is Art. 6(1) point f GDPR, which allows the processing of data for fulfilling a contract or contractual measures.
If you send enquiries to us via contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you enter, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your permission.
The data entered in the contact form is processed solely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1) point a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. You do not need to complete a form to do this; an email to us will suffice. The legality of the data processing that has been carried out before the withdrawal of consent remains unaffected by it.
The data you entered in the contact form remains with us until you ask us to erase it, withdraw your consent for its storage or until the purpose of the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed in full). Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Analysis tools and advertising
Provided you have given your consent, this website will use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited. This service makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and to thus analyse the cross-device activities of a user.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information about your use of this website gathered by the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Please note that Google Analytics has been supplemented on this website with an IP anonymisation process in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (“IP masking”). The IP address transferred from your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You can find further information on terms and conditions of use and data protection at
www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html bzw. unter
Purposes of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activities and provide other services associated with website and internet usage to the website operator.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1) point a GDPR
Other recipients/categories of recipients
The recipient of the data collected is Google
Transfer to third states
The personal data is transferred to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the adequacy decision by the European Commission. You can access the certificate at www.privacyshield.gov/participant
Duration of data storage
The data that is sent by us and combined with cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs is automatically erased after 14 months. The erasure of data once it has reached the end of the retention period takes place automatically, once per month.
Rights of persons affected
You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by preventing the saving of cookies. To do so, change your browser software’s settings accordingly. However, please note that in this event you may no longer be able to use all functions of this website in full.

5. Plugins und Tools
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you visit one of our pages that is equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This is then used to inform the YouTube server in regard to which of our pages you have visited.
When you are logged into your YouTube account you enable YouTube to allocate your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
We use YouTube in the interests of an attractive representation of our online services. This represents a justified interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1) point f GDPR.
