Privacy Policy

The operators of this site take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection provision as well as this data protection declaration.

It is usually possible to use our website without giving personal details. Insofar as personal data (for example, name, address or e-mail address) are collected on our pages, this is carried out on a voluntary basis as far as possible. These data are not passed on to third parties without your express agreement. We would point out that data transmission online (e.g. for e-mail communications) may prove to have gaps in security. Seamless protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.



The web pages sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our services more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are filed on your computer, which are saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit is finished. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser again on the next visit.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed of cookies being set and only allow cookies in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies in specific cases, or to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the features of this website.


Server log files

The web provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.

These are:

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

These data cannot be attributed to specific persons. This data is not amalgamated with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data retrospectively, if there is a specific indication of unlawful use.


Contact form

If you send us requests via the contact form, your details from the request form, including the contact data for processing the request and in the event of subsequent requests, will be saved by us. We do not pass on these data without your consent.


Google Analytics

This website uses features from the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are saved on your computer and enable the analysis of your website usage. The information generated by the cookie regarding this website is usually transmitted to the Google server in the USA and stored there.


IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation feature on this website. This means that your IP address is abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contract states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, before being transmitted to the USA. It is only in exceptional cases that the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your usage of the website, put together website activities, and deliver other services associated with website and Internet usage with respect to the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be amalgamated with other data by Google.

You can prevent the saving of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the features of this website in full. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the 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 these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin under the following link:

Data processing of orders

We have concluded an order data processing contract with Google, and we fully implement the strict specifications of the German data protection authorities in the use of Google Analytics.


Demographic features of Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic features” function from Google Analytics. Reports can thereby be created, which include declarations on the age, gender and interests of visitors to the website. These data originate from interest-related advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third party providers. These data cannot be attributed to any specific person. You can deactivate this feature at any time via the advertisement settings in your Google account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as presented at the header “Objection to data collection”.


SSL encryption

For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to the website operator, this site uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection because the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the castle symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Entitlement to information, deletion and blocking

You have the right at any time to free information about your saved personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as to rectification, blocking or deletion of these data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint with regard to these or another matters on the topic of personal data.


Objection to advertising mails

The use of published contact details, within the scope of the obligation to provide an imprint, is hereby prohibited for the sending of advertising and information materials that have not been expressly requested. The operators of the website explicitly reserve the right to take legal steps in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information via spam e-mails, for example.
