The operators of these web pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal data protection requirements as well as with this Privacy Statement.
Various personal data are collected whenever you use this website. Personal data are data which can be used to determine your personal identity. This Privacy Statement explains which data we collect and what we use them for. It also describes how we do this and why.
We would like to point out that no data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure and vulnerabilities can never be ruled out entirely. While we make every effort to protect your data, complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.
The controller responsible for processing data on this website is:
Phone: +49 (0) 75 42 / 94 55-0
The controller 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.).
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time. An informal email to this effect is sufficient. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point e) or f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. Please refer to this Privacy Statement for information on the legal basis for processing. If you object to processing, we will cease processing of the personal data for which you have withdrawn consent unless we can demonstrate compelling, legitimate reasons for continuing data processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or, alternatively, for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (right to object under Article 21(1) GDPR).
Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing, your personal data shall no longer be processed for direct marketing purposes (right to object under Article 21(2) GDPR).
Every data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if they consider that the processing of personal data infringes the GDPR. The right to lodge a complaint applies without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
You have the right to receive data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or for the purpose of performing a contract in a commonly used and machine-readable format; you also have the right to have such data made available to third parties. If you demand to have data transmitted directly to another controller, this shall only be done where technically feasible.
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as any purchase orders or enquiries which you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser when the address changes from “http://” to “https://” and a locked padlock is displayed in the address line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Within the limits of the law you have the right to request information regarding personal data stored by us about you at any time and at no cost, in particular about the origin and recipients of your data as well as the purpose for which they have been processed; you also have the right to demand the rectification, blocking or erasure of these data. If you have any questions on the subject of personal data, feel free to contact us at the address given in our legal notice.
You have the right to demand that we restrict processing of your personal data. If you have any questions on this subject, feel free to contact us at the address given in our legal notice. The right to restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

Cookies are used on many websites. Cookies do not harm your computer and they do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and stored in your browser.
Most of the cookies that we use are so-called “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session. Other cookies remain stored on your computer until you delete them explicitly; they enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Article 6(1) f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure that the best possible service is provided free of technical errors. Other cookies which are stored on your computer (e.g. cookies for analysing your browsing behaviour) are described elsewhere in this Privacy Statement.
If you send us questions or enquiries using the contact form, we will store the data entered in the form, including any contact details provided by you, to enable us to answer your question or enquiry as well as any follow-up questions. We do not share these data without your consent.
Any data which you enter in the contact form will thus only be processed subject to your consent (Art. 6(1) a GDPR). You may withdraw your consent at any time. An informal email to this effect is sufficient. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
We will retain the data you provide to us in the contact form until you request their erasure or withdraw your consent to storage, or until the purpose for which they have been stored no longer applies (for example, after we have finished processing your enquiry). Any mandatory statutory provisions – for example regarding retention periods – shall remain unaffected.
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your enquiry – including all personal data provided in connection with it (name, enquiry details) – are stored and processed by us to enable us to answer your enquiry. We do not share these data without your consent.
Such data are processed pursuant to Article 6(1) b GDPR insofar as your enquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1) a GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art 6(1) f GDPR) because we have a legitimate interest in processing any enquiries addressed to us efficiently.
We will retain the data you provide to us in the contact form until you request their erasure or withdraw your consent to storage, or until the purpose for which they have been stored no longer applies (for example, after we have finished processing your enquiry). Any mandatory statutory provisions – for example regarding statutory retention periods – shall remain unaffected.
This website uses functionalities of “Google Analytics”, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies, and the use of this analytics tool, are pursuant to Article 6(1) f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing how you use the website, to enable the website to be further improved and optimize advertising.
We have activated the “anonymizeIP” option on this website. This means that Google will remove the end of your IP address prior to transmission to the United States, so it only locates you as within the member states of the European Union or other members of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate how you use the website, compile reports on website activity and offer the website operator other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google will never associate your IP address as transmitted by Google Analytics from your browser with any other data held by Google.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you by clicking the following link: An opt-out cookie is then placed on your computer to prevent any future collection of your data when you visit this website.
We have signed an agreement with Google to handle order processing and the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities are fully implemented when using Google Analytics.
Google Analytics Demographics
This website has enabled Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, which helps us target audiences based on the age, sex and interests of visitors to our sites. These data come from interest based advertising by Google as well as the visitor statistics of third-party providers. They cannot be associated with a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or prohibit the collection of data about you by Google Analytics as described under “Objection to data collection by Google Analytics”.
User-level and event-level data associated with cookies, user identifiers (e.g. User-ID) and advertising identifiers (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android’s Advertising ID) which are stored by Google are anonymized or erased after 14 months.
