Privacy Statement

Thank you very much for your interest in our online presence. Protecting your personal data is a very important priority and concern to us. At this point we would like to inform you about data protection in our company. Of course, we comply with the legal provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG or Bundesdatenschutzgesetz), those of the German Telecommunications Services Act (TMG or Teledienstegesetz) and other data protection regulations and provisions.

You can have full confidence that we will protect your personal data! This data is encrypted and transmitted to us through digital security systems. Our websites are protected by technical measures against damage, destruction or unauthorized access.

Subject of Data Protection

The subject matter of data protection is the personal data of our clients and users. According to Article 3, Section 1 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), personal data refers to personal or factual/objective circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or phone number, eventually also connection or usage data such as your IP address.

Scope of Data Collection and Storage

Usually, it is not necessary for you to provide personal information in order to use our website. However, we may need your personal data, if applicable, in order to actually provide our services. This applies both to the sending of information or goods ordered and also to answer individual requests and inquiries.

If you instruct us to provide a service or the sending of goods, we collect and store your personal data in principle only to the extent necessary to ensure the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. For this purpose, it might be necessary to disclose your personal data and information to companies which we engage for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Here we refer to, for example, transport companies and other service providers.

After complete conclusion of the contract, your data will be blocked for further use and, after the expiry of the legal fiscal and commercial regulations, will be deleted, provided you have not explicitly approved the continued use of your data.

If you are registered with your e-mail address for our newsletter, we may use your e-mail address beyond the execution of the contract also for promotional or advertising purposes, until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.

Data collection through use of Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The data collected includes, for example, information on the operating system, Internet browser, your IP address, the previously visited website (Referrer URL) and the date and time of your visit to our website. The information about the use of our website generated by this text file is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet. As far as this is required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google, Google will possibly pass this information on to third parties. This use of the said data takes place exclusively in anonymous or pseudonymous form. More information can be found directly on the Google website:

During this process, no immediate personal data of the user is gathered, but only the internet protocol address.

Cookies enable us, for instance, to customize a website in line with your interests, or to store your password so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the website.

Collection and storage of usage data

To optimize our website we collect and store data such as the date and time of a page view, the web page from which you have accessed our site and similar information, unless you object to this collection and storage of data. This is done anonymously, without identifying the user of the site personally. If necessary, user profiles are created by means of a pseudonym. No connection or link is established here between the natural persons standing behind the pseudonym and the collected usage data. For the collection and storage of usage data we also use cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer and that are used for the storage of statistical information such as the operating system, the program you use to access the internet (browser), IP address, the previously viewed website (referrer URL) and the time when you visited our website. We collect this data solely for statistical purposes, in order to further optimize our Internet presence and to make our Internet offers even more attractive. The collection and storage is effected only in an anonymised or pseudonymised manner and does not allow any inference of your personal details.

Use of Data for a Specific Purpose

We adhere to the principle of the appropriate use of data and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have communicated them to us. Your personal data is not transmitted to third parties without your express approval, provided that this is not necessary for the rendering of the service or the execution of the contract. The transfer of personal data to authorized state institutions and authorities will only take place within the scope of legal disclosure requirements or unless we are obliged to do so by a court decision.

We also take data protection within our company very seriously. Our employees and the service providers contracted by us are bound by a duty of confidentiality and are obliged to comply with the provisions of the applicable data protection legislation.

Right to Information and Cancellation

At any time and without giving any reason, you can enquire information about your personal data stored by us at no cost. You may at any time have the data which has been collected by us blocked, corrected or deleted and you may always object to the storage of data which has been collected and gathered in an anonymised or pseudonymised form for the purpose of optimizing our website. You may also at any time and without giving any reason revoke the consent you have granted us for the collection and use of data. To do so, please get in touch with the contact address indicated in the Legal Notice section of this website. We are always gladly at your disposal to answer any further questions about this data privacy policy (or privacy statement) and about the processing of your personal data.

Please note that data protection regulations and practices, such as those of Google, can change continuously. It is therefore advisable and necessary to stay informed about changes in the legal regulations or provisions and the practice of companies and businesses, like for example Google.
