SSL or TSL encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security purposes and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as orders or requests you send to us as the site operator.

Data collection on our website

The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, or generally disable cookies and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website. Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analyzing your browsing habits) are stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files
The Internet page provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information includes:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

A merge of this data with other data sources will not be performed. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent. The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or delete the purpose for data storage (for example, after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially storage times – remain unaffected.

Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analytics service. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to any transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Browser plug-in
You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in that case you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website. In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and installing it:

Plugins and tools

Google web fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest as set out in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) of the GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
