SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryp­tion for secu­rity rea­sons and for the pro­tec­tion of the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as the inqui­ries you send to us as the site ope­ra­tor. You can reco­gnize an encryp­ted con­nec­tion in your browser’s address line when it chan­ges from “https://” to “https://” and the lock icon is dis­played in your browser’s address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryp­tion is acti­va­ted, the data you trans­fer to us can­not be read by third parties.

The web­site ope­ra­tor reser­ves the right to take spe­ci­fic legal action if unso­li­ci­ted adver­ti­sing mate­rial, such as email spam, is received.

3. Data collec­tion on our website


Some of our web pages use coo­kies. Coo­kies do not harm your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain any viru­ses. Coo­kies help make our web­site more user-friendly, effi­ci­ent, and secure. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and saved by your browser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led “ses­sion coo­kies.” They are auto­ma­ti­cally dele­ted after your visit. Other coo­kies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These coo­kies make it pos­si­ble to reco­gnize your brow­ser when you next visit the site.

You can con­fi­gure your brow­ser to inform you about the use of coo­kies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whe­ther to accept or reject a coo­kie. Alter­na­tively, your brow­ser can be con­fi­gu­red to auto­ma­ti­cally accept coo­kies under cer­tain con­di­ti­ons or to always reject them, or to auto­ma­ti­cally delete coo­kies when clo­sing your brow­ser. Dis­ab­ling coo­kies may limit the func­tio­n­a­lity of this 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 Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies to ensure an opti­mi­zed ser­vice pro­vi­ded free of tech­ni­cal errors. If other coo­kies (such as those used to ana­lyze your sur­fing beha­vior) are also stored, they will be trea­ted sepa­r­ately in this pri­vacy policy.

Ser­ver log files

The web­site pro­vi­der auto­ma­ti­cally collects and stores infor­ma­tion that your brow­ser auto­ma­ti­cally trans­mits to us in “ser­ver log files”. These are:

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

These data will not be com­bi­ned with data from other sources.

The basis for data pro­ces­sing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the pro­ces­sing of data to ful­fill a con­tract or for mea­su­res preli­mi­nary to a contract.

Con­tact form

Should you send us ques­ti­ons via the con­tact form, we will collect the data ent­e­red on the form, inclu­ding the con­tact details you pro­vide, to ans­wer your ques­tion and any fol­low-up ques­ti­ons. We do not share this infor­ma­tion without your permission.

We will, the­re­fore, pro­cess any data you enter onto the con­tact form only with your con­sent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your con­sent at any time. An infor­mal email making this request is suf­fi­ci­ent. The data pro­ces­sed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you pro­vide on the con­tact form until you request its dele­tion, revoke your con­sent for its sto­rage, or the pur­pose for its sto­rage no lon­ger per­tains (e.g. after ful­fil­ling your request). Any man­da­tory sta­tu­tory pro­vi­si­ons, espe­cially those regar­ding man­da­tory data reten­tion peri­ods, remain unaf­fec­ted by this provision.

4. Ana­ly­tics and advertising

Google Ana­ly­tics

This web­site uses Google Ana­ly­tics, a web ana­ly­tics ser­vice. It is ope­ra­ted by Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Ana­ly­tics uses so-cal­led “coo­kies”. These are text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and that allow an ana­ly­sis of the use of the web­site by you. The infor­ma­tion gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie about your use of this web­site is usually trans­mit­ted to a Google ser­ver in the USA and stored there.

Google Ana­ly­tics coo­kies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in ana­ly­zing user beha­vior to opti­mize both its web­site and its advertising.

IP anony­miz­a­tion

We have acti­va­ted the IP anony­miz­a­tion fea­ture on this web­site. Your IP address will be shor­tened by Google wit­hin the Euro­pean Union or other par­ties to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area prior to trans­mis­sion to the United Sta­tes. Only in excep­tio­nal cases is the full IP address sent to a Google ser­ver in the US and shor­tened there. Google will use this infor­ma­tion on behalf of the ope­ra­tor of this web­site to eva­luate your use of the web­site, to com­pile reports on web­site acti­vity, and to pro­vide other ser­vices regar­ding web­site acti­vity and Inter­net usage for the web­site ope­ra­tor. The IP address trans­mit­ted by your brow­ser as part of Google Ana­ly­tics will not be mer­ged with any other data held by Google.

Brow­ser plugin

You can pre­vent these coo­kies being stored by selec­ting the appro­priate set­tings in your brow­ser. Howe­ver, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full func­tio­n­a­lity of this web­site. You can also pre­vent the data gene­ra­ted by coo­kies about your use of the web­site (incl. your IP address) from being pas­sed to Google, and the pro­ces­sing of these data by Google, by down­loading and instal­ling the brow­ser plugin avail­able at the fol­lowing link:

Objec­ting to the collec­tion of data

You can pre­vent the collec­tion of your data by Google Ana­ly­tics by cli­cking on the fol­lowing link. An opt-out coo­kie will be set to pre­vent your data from being collec­ted on future visits to this site: Dis­able Google Ana­ly­tics.

For more infor­ma­tion about how Google Ana­ly­tics hand­les user data, see Google’s pri­vacy policy:

Out­sour­ced data processing

We have ent­e­red into an agree­ment with Google for the out­sour­cing of our data pro­ces­sing and fully imple­ment the strict requi­re­ments of the Ger­man data pro­tec­tion aut­ho­ri­ties when using Google Analytics.

Demo­gra­phic data collec­tion by Google Analytics

This web­site uses Google Ana­ly­tics’ demo­gra­phic fea­tures. This allows reports to be gene­ra­ted con­tai­ning state­ments about the age, gen­der, and inte­rests of site visi­tors. This data comes from inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing from Google and third-party visi­tor data. This collec­ted data can­not be attri­bu­ted to any spe­ci­fic indi­vi­dual per­son. You can dis­able this fea­ture at any time by adjus­ting the ads set­tings in your Google account or you can for­bid the collec­tion of your data by Google Ana­ly­tics as descri­bed in the sec­tion “Refu­sal of data collection”.
