In order to be able to offer you our website and the associated services, we process personal data on the basis of the following legal bases:

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO
  • for the performance of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO

In connection with the respective processing, we will refer to the corresponding terms so that you can classify on which basis we process personal data.

If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a weighing of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 DSGVO.

Access data

When you visit our website, personal data is processed in order to be able to display the contents of the website on your terminal device.

In order for the pages to be displayed in your browser, the IP address of the terminal device you are using must be processed. In addition, there is further information about the browser of your terminal device.

We are obliged under data protection law to also guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of the personal data processed with our IT systems.
For this purpose and out of this interest, the following data will be recorded on the basis of a weighing of interests:

  • Browser Version of the calling computer
  • Name of the retrieved file

The IP address will be deleted after 7 days at the latest from all systems used in connection with the operation of these Internet pages. We can then no longer establish a personal reference from the remaining data.

The data will also be used to identify and correct errors on the website.

Contact form

We offer a contact form on our website which you can use to request information about our products or services or to make general contact. We have marked the data that you must provide to answer an enquiry as mandatory fields. Information on other data fields is voluntary.

We need this information in order to process your enquiry, address you correctly and send you an answer. The data processing takes place with concrete inquiries for the fulfilment of a contract and/or the contract initiation. General enquiries are processed on the basis of a weighing of interests.

Enquiries received via the contact form on our website are processed electronically by us in order to answer your enquiry. In this context, other persons or departments and third parties may also become aware of the form contents that you have sent.

The transmission of the form data via the Internet takes place via encrypted connections.


You can also subscribe to an e-mail newsletter on our website. In addition to the voluntary information in the respective form, we only process your e-mail address. However, this is absolutely necessary in order to be able to send you the newsletter.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Alternatively, you will find a link to unsubscribe in every newsletter e-mail.

In order to be able to analyse the popularity of our newsletter emails and to optimise them, we log when e-mails are opened and links are clicked. This usage analysis is based on a weighing of interests. You can object to this processing by unsubscribing from the newsletter.


Personal data is also processed for the operation of our online shop and the ordering of goods and/or services. This takes place with regard to the shop functions in principle for the initiation and/or fulfilment of contracts to the purchase and/or the purchase of our goods and service providers.

Cookies are used on our Internet pages. Cookies are small text information that are stored in your terminal device via your browser. The cookies are necessary to enable certain functions of our Internet pages.

We use session cookies, which are automatically deleted from your browser immediately after you have finished visiting our website.

In the area of web analysis, however, we also use so-called persistent cookies which are not automatically deleted after the end of your visit to our website.

You have the option of preventing the setting of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that the use of our Internet pages may then only be possible to a limited extent.

This website uses the web analytics tool "Google Analytics", a service provided by Google Ireland Limited. The purpose of this use is to "tailor" this website to meet your needs by weighing up your interests. Web analysis also enables us to detect and correct errors on the website, e.g. due to incorrect links. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. So-called "client IDs" are used, which serve to create pseudonymous usage profiles that jointly record the use of the Internet pages by desktop computers and mobile end devices by a user.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, since we have activated IP anonymisation on this website and have concluded a corresponding contract with Google, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google in the USA is certified according to the so-called "Privacy Shield" (list entry). Google guarantees an adequate level of data protection.

You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link. (

Google Webfonts

We use so-called Google Web Fonts on our Internet pages. In the process, Google loads fonts from servers that serve to improve the design of the website. The data processing takes place on the basis of a weighing of interests, whereby our interest consists in an appealing organization of the Internet side.

The relevant fonts are loaded by Google servers, which are usually located in the USA. The appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed by Google (list entry "Privacy Shield").

We process the aforementioned data for the operation of our website and for the fulfilment of contractual obligations towards our customers or the protection of our legitimate interests.
