1. Data Protection Overview


The following information provides a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data is any data by which you can be personally identified. For detailed information on the subject of data protection, please refer to our privacy policy listed below.

Data storage on our website

Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find their contact details in the Legal Notice of this website.

How do we store your data?
Firstly, your data is collected by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the page visit). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

How do we use your data?
Some of the data are collected to ensure error-free website presentation. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have with respect to your data?
You have the right at any time to obtain information free of charge on the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of such data. With respect to this and other questions on the subject of data protection issues, you can contact us at any time at the address stated in the Legal Notice. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.

Analysis tools and third-party provider tools
When visiting our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically analysed. This is done primarily with cookies and using so-called analysis programmes. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is anonymous; your surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Details on this can be found in our data protection declaration under the heading "Third-party modules and analysis tools". This data protection declaration informs you on objection possibilities below.

2 General notes and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use them for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. in the case of communication by email) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is impossible.

Note on the responsible body

Please refer to the contact details in the Legal Notice of this website for the office responsible for data processing.

The responsible body is the natural or legal person, who, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. All you need to do is send an informal email to us. The legality of the data processing carried out until the data processing remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link:

Right to data transferability

You have the right to be provided with data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, either to yourself or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, we use SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, the origin and recipients of your personal data and the purpose of the processing, and, if applicable, the right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time regarding this and other questions on the subject of personal data at the address given in the Legal Notice.

Objection to advertising emails

The use of contact data published within the framework of the Legal Notice for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the case of unsolicited sending of advertising information, e.g. by means of spam emails.

3. Data collection on our website


The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the placement of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, as well as automatically delete cookies when you close the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies used to carry out the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically faultless and optimised provision of its services. With respect to other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour), these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data are not merged with other data sources.

The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your data from the form, including the contact details you provide there, will be used for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not forward these data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1. lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose an informal message to us by email is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the time of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after the completed processing of your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular storage periods - remain unaffected.

Comment function on this website

For the comment function on this page, in addition to the time the comment was created, your email address and, if you do not post anonymously, the username you have chosen are stored.

IP address storage

Our comment function stores the IP addresses of users who post comments. Since we do not check comments on our site before they are published, we need this data to be able to take action against the author in the case of violations such as insults or propaganda.

Processing data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. Personal data about the use of our web pages (usage data) are collected, processed and used only to the extent that this is necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill him/her.

The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal storage periods remain unaffected.
