2. Collection and storage of personal data as well as the nature and purpose of its use.

a) When visiting the website

When accessing our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to our website’s server. This information is temporarily stored in a log file. The following information is collected without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • Name of the retrieved file
  • Date and time of access
  • Size of transferred data
  • Message whether the access was successful
  • Description of the type of web browser used
  • Operating system used
  • Previously visited page
  • Provider
  • Your IP address

The specified data is processed by us for the following purposes:

  • To ensure that a smooth connection is established with the website
  • To guarantee the convenient use of our website
  • To evaluate system security and stability
  • For other administrative purposes

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests are based on the above-listed purposes for collecting data. In no case will we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you.

We also use cookies as well as analysis and marketing services when you visit our website. You can find more information about this in points 5–12 of this privacy policy.

b) When using our contact form

If you have any questions, we offer you the possibility of contacting us via a form provided on the website. We need your name and a valid email address so that we know who the request has come from and can respond. Further information can be provided on a voluntary basis.

The personal data we collect when you use the contact form is erased once your request has been resolved unless another basis for legitimacy (e.g. an actual order) entitles further processing.

The data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) GDPR on the basis of your specific request.

c) When subscribing to our newsletter

On our website, it is possible to subscribe to a free email newsletter. When you subscribe to the newsletter, the data from the input form will be transmitted to us.

  • Name
  • Email address

Moreover, the following data is collected at the time of registration:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of registration

For data processing purposes, your consent is obtained during the login process, and reference is made to this privacy policy.

If you entrust us with the provision of services and enter your email address, it can subsequently be used by us for sending a newsletter. In such a case, only direct advertising for our own similar goods or services will be sent via the newsletter.

No data from the data processing to send newsletters is shared with third parties. The data is only used for sending the newsletter.

The purpose of collecting the user’s email address is to deliver the email newsletter. The collection of other personal data in the context of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the email address used.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. The user’s email address is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

The other personal data collected during the registration process is normally deleted after a period of seven days.

The newsletter subscription can be canceled by the user concerned at any time. There is a corresponding link to do so in each newsletter. This also allows a revocation of the consent to store the personal data collected during the registration process.

The legal basis for data processing after the user has subscribed to the newsletter is in the existence of the user’s consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR). The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR in conjunction with Section 7(3) UWG (German Act against Unfair Competition).

3. Sharing data

Your personal data is not shared with third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We only share your personal data with third parties if:

  • You have explicitly consented to this under Article 6(1)(a) GDPR
  • Data must be shared pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data not being shared
  • There is a legal obligation to share it pursuant to Article 6 (1)(c) GDPR
  • Doing so is legally permissible and required in order to process contractual relationships with you pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) GDPR

5. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on our website.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, thereby offering guaranteed compliance with European data protection law.

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files stored on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is truncated beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. Google uses the information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activities and provide the website operator with further services linked to website use and Internet use. The IP address sent by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not amalgamated with other data by Google. You can inhibit the storage of cookies by selecting a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in that case, you may not be able to use all the functions provided by this website in full. Moreover, you can inhibit acquisition by Google of the data generated by the cookie and concerning your use of the website (including your IP address), together with the processing of that data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the provided link.

We would like to point out that Google Analytics has been extended on this website with the “gat._anonymizeIp();” code to ensure the anonymized collection of IP addresses (known as IP masking).

You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is then created, preventing the further collection of your data when you visit this website. This procedure is particularly recommended when accessing our website via a mobile device.

For more information about Google’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, please refer to the respective links.

We base the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR: the processing is carried out to analyze user behavior; therefore, it is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.
