2. General notices and mandatory information
The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential, and handle it in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this Data Privacy Declaration.
A variety of personal data is collected when you use this website. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This Data Privacy Notice explains what data we collect, and the purposes for which we use it. It also explains how we do so, and for what reason.
Please note that transmitting data online (for instance through e-mail communication) may be subject to gaps in security. Seamless protection of your data from access by third parties is not possible.
The controller responsible for data processing on this website is:
Telefon: +49 3944 / 36 76 235
The controller is the natural person or legal entity that makes decisions, alone or jointly with other entities, about the purposes and means of processing personal data (such as names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing procedures are possible only with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have previously granted at any time. A simple e-mail notification is sufficient to do so, and is not subject to formal requirements. The legality of data processing carried out up to the time consent is revoked will remain unaffected.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data we process automatically based on your consent or in order to fulfil a contract delivered to you or to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request that data be transmitted directly to another controller, we will do so only if this is technically feasible.
SSL- or TLS-Encryption
This page uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to the website operator. You can identify an encrypted connection because the address line of your browser will change from “http://” to “https://” and you will see a lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

In accordance with applicable law, you have the right to receive information free of charge at any time regarding your saved personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, and in some cases you have the right to have this data be rectified, blocked, or deleted.

The website operator expressly reserves the right to take legal steps if we are sent unsolicited advertising information, for instance via spam e-mails.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies help us recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can adjust your browser settings so that you are informed when cookies are saved, or to permit cookies to be accepted only in certain cases or generally exclude cookies, as well as to automatically delete cookies when you close your browser. The functionality of this website may be restricted if you deactivate cookies.
Cookies used to carry out electronic communication or to provide certain functions you request (such as the shopping cart function) are saved in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to provide its services optimally and in a manner free from technical errors. If other cookies (such as cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are addressed separately in this Data Privacy Declaration.
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. This information includes:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server inquiry
- IP address
This data is not combined with data from other sources.
The data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits data processing in order to fulfil a contract or carry out pre-contractual measures.
If you send us an inquiry using the contact form, we store the information you enter in the inquiry form and the contact information you provide in order to process your inquiry and handle any follow-up inquiries. We do not disclose this data to other parties without your consent.
Data entered into the contact form, therefore, is processed only on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. A simple e-mail notification is sufficient to do so, and is not subject to formal requirements. The legality of data processing carried out up to the time consent is revoked will remain unaffected.
We retain the data you enter into the contact form until you request that we delete it, revoke your consent to store the data, or until the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (such as after we finish handling your inquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention terms – shall remain unaffected.
4. Analytic Tools and Advertisement
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
reCAPTCHA is used to determine whether data entered on our websites (such as in a contact form) was entered by a human or an automated program. To do so, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. The analysis starts automatically once the website visitor enters the website. reCAPTCHA analyses a variety of information in the course of doing so (such as the user's IP address, dwell time on the website, or the mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during this analysis is sent to Google.
reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is being carried out.
Data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its website from automated surveillance and spam.
