SSL and TLS encryption
For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential contents such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection because 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, third parties cannot read the data you transfer to us.
Access, blocking, deletion
Within the applicable legal regulations, you have the right at any time to access for free any information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing, and, where applicable, a right to have these data corrected, blocked or deleted.

Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand restrictions to the processing of your personal data. To do so, you can contact us at the address under the site notice at any time. You have a right to restrict processing in the following cases:
- If you dispute the correctness of the personal data stored with us, it will usually take time to check this. For the duration of the check, you have the right to demand restrictions on the processing of your personal data.
If your personal data were/are processed unlawfully, you can ask for data processing to be restricted instead of requesting the deletion of the data.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need them to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to demand restrictions on the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have objected as per Art 21 (1) GDPR, it is necessary to weigh up your and our interests. Until it has been determined whose interests outweigh the other, you have the right to demand restrictions on the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, processing of these data – apart from their storage – is only permitted with your consent or to assert, excise or defend legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of a significant public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
Objection to advertising emails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published under the Impressumspflicht (German legislation requiring specific information to be provided on every website) to send advertising and information material not explicitly requested. The operators of these pages retain the explicit right to take legal steps in case of unwanted sending of advertising information, such as in the form of spam emails.
4. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are so called “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically after your visit is over. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to identify your browser when you next visit us.
In your browser settings, you can choose to be informed whenever a cookie is placed and then permit only specific ones, you can reject the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or in general, and you can activate automatic cookie deletion when you close your browser. The functionality of this website may be affected if you deactivate cookies.
Cookies that are required for the completion of the electronic communication procedure or to provide specific functions you require (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to provide services in optimised and technologically flawless fashion. If corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to cookies storage), processing is performed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are saved, they are handled separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log data
The provider of our pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system in use
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data are not brought together with other data sources.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which permits data processing for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or pre-contract measures.
If you send us inquiries via our contact form, the information you enter in the contact form, including your contact data, will be stored by us so we can process your request, and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass these data on without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form are thus processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. Simply send a message to us via email. The lawfulness of the data processing procedures that took place prior to the revocation remain unaffected by the revocation.
The data you entered in our contact form remain with us until you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent for storage, or the reason for data storage no longer exists (e.g. once we have finished processing your request). Mandatory legal regulations – particularly storage periods – remain unaffected.
5. Analysis tools, third-party tools and advertising
This website uses the functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. It is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise their website and advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that, within Member States of the European Union or other Signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google will shorten your IP address before transmitting it to the US. Only in an exception is the full IP address forwarded to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of this website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide further services relating to website use and internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be brought together with other data by Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by making a corresponding setting in your browser software; please note, however, that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full in this case. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to or processed by Google by clicking on the following link and downloading and installing the browser plugin you find there: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. This places an opt-out cookie that prevents your data from being collected when you visit this website in future: Deactivate Google Analytics.
For more information on the handling of user data at Google Analytics, see the Google data protection declaration: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. It is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
We use reCAPTCHA to determine whether data inputs on our website (e.g. on a contact form) are performed by a person or an automated programme. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor with the help of various properties. The analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For its analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time the website visitor spent on the website, mouse movements performed by the user). The data recorded during the analysis are forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses run fully in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place.
Data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting their website against improper automated spying and SPAM.
For more information on Google reCAPTCHA and the Google data protection declaration, see the following links: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html
