2. General and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of these webpages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.

If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data that can be used to personally identify you. This privacy policy sets out the type of data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose your data is collected.

Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

Notice concerning the data controller responsible for this website

The website operator is the data controller responsible for processing data on this website.

For contact details of the website operator, please see the website’s legal notice.

The responsible data controller is the natural or legal person which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data (e. g. names, email addresses etc.).

Withdrawing your consent to the processing of data

Many data processing procedures are subject to your explicit consent. You may withdraw your previously given consent at any time. To withdraw your consent, simply notify us by email. The legality of data processing undertaken prior to a withdrawal of consent remains unaffected by such withdrawal.

SSL respectively TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or requests which you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL or TLS encryption. If a connection is encrypted, the URL in your browser’s address line will change from an ‘http://’ to an ‘https://’ address, and a gridlock symbol will appear.

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

Access, restriction of processing, erasure

In accordance with applicable legal provisions, you are entitled at any time and without charge to access and be informed about your personal data stored with us, its source and recipients and the purpose of processing such data and, where applicable, you are entitled to correction, restriction of processing or erasure of this data.

3. How data is recorded on our website

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files. Your browser automatically transmits these files to us. They contain information on:

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

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

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or for pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us requests via the contact form, we will store information contained in the contact form, including contact details you have provided, in order to process your request and in case we need to contact you with any follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent.

Data entered into the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You may withdraw your consent at any time. To withdraw your consent, simply notify us by email. The legality of data processing undertaken prior to a withdrawal of consent remains unaffected by such withdrawal.

We will keep the data you have entered into the contact form until you request its erasure, withdraw your consent to its storage or the purpose for storing the data ceases to apply (e. g. after your request has been processed and completed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular those governing storage periods – remain unaffected.
