Collection of personal data when you visit our website
If you use our websites for purely informative purposes, i.e. do not wish to register or otherwise contact us, we only collect personal data that your browser transmits to our server. This data is technically necessary for us to be able to display our website to you and to guarantee its stability and security (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The following data can be recorded:
– IP address
– host name
– Date, time of request
– Contents of the request (concrete page)
– Access status/HTTP status code
– Transferred amount of data
– Website from which the request comes (referrer)
– The pages of our website that you have specifically called up
– Browser used (type, version and language)
– Operating system (type, version)
Contact by email or contact form
We may use contact forms or offer you the opportunity to send us emails. If you send us enquiries by contact form or e-mail, your details from the enquiry form or your e-mail, including the contact details you provided there, will be used to process the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.
is stored with us. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and, if applicable, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. B DSGVO, insofar as your request is aimed at the conclusion of a contract. Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed, unless there are legal obligations to retain them. In the case of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you may object to the processing of your personal data at any time. The user data can be stored in a customer relationship management system (“CRM system”) or comparable query organization options. The enquiries will be deleted by us if they are no longer necessary. We check the necessity every two years. The statutory retention periods also apply.
We may use comment functions on our website, in which case, in addition to your comment at the time the comment is created, your e-mail address and, if you do not post anonymously, your chosen username will be stored. If we do not check comments before they are activated, the IP address of the user who posted the comment will be recorded. We need this data to be able to take legal action against the author in the event of legal infringements, e.g. hatred, insults, propaganda, etc. If our website offers you to subscribe to comments, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to ensure that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that it exists. You can unsubscribe from this feature at any time by clicking a link in the appropriate information email. The data entered as part of the “comment subscription” will be deleted in this case – unless this data has been transmitted to us elsewhere for other purposes, e.g. newsletter. The comments and the associated data are stored by us and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments must be deleted for legal reasons, e.g. hatred, discrimination, etc. The comments and the associated data are stored on our website until they are deleted.
Cooperation with contract processors and third parties
Insofar as we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties) within the framework of our processing, transfer them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this shall only take place based on a legal permit, e.g. if a transfer of the data to third parties, such as payment service providers pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO is necessary for the performance of the contract, you have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests, e.g. the use of agents, hosting providers, etc., in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. If we commission third parties with the processing of data on the basis of a so-called “order processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 DSGVO.
SSL or TLS encryption
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, e.g. order enquiries, online offers etc., which you send to us. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the lock symbol in the address bar of the browser and the beginning of the address bar – namely “https://”. This means that the data cannot be read by third parties.
Payment transactions on our website
If we sell products, services, etc. via our website, it is possible that after/when concluding the chargeable contract there may be an obligation to provide us with your payment details, e.g. credit card number, etc. These are required to process the payment. Payment transactions via frequently used means of payment (credit cards, direct debit) are made via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize this encrypted connection by the lock symbol and the beginning of the address line with “https://”. Your payment data, which you transmit to us, cannot be read by third parties.

Use of Google Adwords Conversion / Remarketing
We may use Google Adwords to advertise on external websites (so-called Google Adwords) to draw attention to our offers. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In doing so, we pursue the interest of displaying advertising to you that is of interest to you, of increasing the attractiveness of our website for you and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose we use Ad Server Cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters such as the display of advertisements or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google advertisement, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values. These cookies allow Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognise which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools we may use, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge:
Through the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible for the provider to find out and store your IP address. There are several ways you can prevent Google from participating in this tracking process:
– By setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third party cookies, you will not receive any advertisements from third parties,
– by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, www.google.de/settings/ads , whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies,
– by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulatory campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies,
– by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link
www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We draw your attention to the fact that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this offer.

Most browsers also offer a “do-not-track” feature that allows you to indicate that you do not want to be “tracked” by websites. If this feature is enabled, the browser will tell ad networks, websites, and applications that you do not want to be tracked for behavior-based advertising and the like. For information and instructions on how to edit this feature, see the links below, depending on your browser provider:

Data Transfer and Receiver
A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place, except
– if we have explicitly pointed this out in the description of the respective data processing,
– if you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO,
– the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
– in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
– to the extent required by Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO for the execution of contractual relationships with you.
In addition, we use external service providers for the processing of our services, whom we have carefully selected and commissioned in writing. They are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked by us. If necessary, we have concluded contract processing agreements with them pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO. These are service providers responsible for web hosting, sending e-mails and maintaining and servicing our IT systems. The service providers will not pass this data on to third parties.
Duration of storage of personal data
The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the relevant statutory retention periods (e.g. from commercial law and tax law). After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is required for contract fulfilment or contract initiation or if we have a justified interest in further storage, the data will be deleted if you are no longer required for these purposes or if you make use of your right of revocation or objection.
Transfers to third countries
If we process data in a so-called third country, i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA), or if this is done in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this will only occur if it is done to fulfil our pre-contractual or contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests.
Subject to contractual or legal permissions, we process or allow the data to be processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. of the German Data Protection Act are met. DSGVO, i.e. the processing takes place e.g. on the basis of special guarantees such as the officially recognized determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU, e.g. the “Privacy Shield” in the USA, or observance of officially recognized, special contractual obligations, so-called “standard contract clauses”.
Deletion of data
The data processed by us will be deleted or their processing restricted in accordance with Art. 17 and 18 DSGVO. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain them. If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted, i.e. the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons.
We protect the data of our users through technical and organizational security measures in order to minimize risks associated with their loss, misuse, unauthorized access and unauthorized disclosure and alteration. For this purpose, e.g. firewalls, data encryption, but also authorization controls for data access are used. This is based on Art. 32 DSGVO and Art. 25 DSGVO.
social media links
It is possible that on our website social networks such as Facebook, Instagram are only integrated as links, i.e. when clicking on the corresponding link (text/image), a redirection to the page of the respective provider takes place.
