2. Legal bases of the processing

The processing of personal data requires a legal basis, which we would like to introduce to you below.

When processing personal data, for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Art. 6(1) point (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

If processing personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6(1) point (b) GDPR serves as a legal basis. This also applies to processing required to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

Where personal data processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6(1) point (c) GDPR serves as a legal basis.

If processing is necessary for any legitimate interest pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, then Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. The legitimate interest of our enterprise is in the implementation of our business activity, and the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of security of our website.


II. Log files, hosting

Data transferred to us by the browser, in the scope of our legitimate interest in the analysis and for security reasons (so called “log files”) are automatically stored in the server statistics.

These include the following data:

  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Operating system used and its interface
  • The referrer URL (previously visited web page)
  • The host name of the requesting computer (IP address)
  • Date and time of the server request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Contents of the request (specific page)
  • Volume of data transferred
  • Access status/HTTP status code.

As a rule, we cannot allocate this data to specific persons. This data is not combined with other data sources. The data will also be erased within 7 days, after a statistic evaluation. Data which have to be retained for longer periods for the purpose of providing proof are exempted from erasure until the incident has definitely been clarified.

We make use of hosting services. These serve to provide infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services to maintain the operation of this website.

We and/or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contractual data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website, on the basis of our legitimate interest in an efficient and safe provision of the website.


III. Contractual processing

The personal data provided by you for contractual purposes, e.g. for requesting quotes, such as name, address or e-mail address, will only be used internally, to answer your questions, handle your orders or give you access to specific contractual information.

1. Contacting

If you contact us by email or the contact form, we will save the data that you provide to us voluntarily in order to answer your questions.

Disclosure to third parties will not occur under any circumstances, unless valid data protection regulations justify a transfer, or we are legally obliged to do so. You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. In the case of withdrawal, your data will immediately be erased, unless a legal derogation exists for further processing. Otherwise, your data will be erased, when we have handled your query, or the purpose of storage has elapsed, and there are no other prejudicing legal derogations. You can find out about the data saved about you at any time.


2. Cookies

You can find out below at the different functions which function on our website places cookies.


3. Disclosure of personal data to third parties

We disclose data to third parties, if this is necessary for contractual fulfilment and/or we are legally obliged and/or it is legitimate in individual cases.

Sometimes we make use of external service providers in the scope of our legitimate interests, with regard to analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of the website. As a prerequisite, the third party providers of this content need to know the user’s IP address since they would otherwise not be able to send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore required to display the content. In addition, third parties may use pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as “Web Beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. Using the “pixel tags”, information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website can be analysed. The pseudonym information can also be stored in cookies on the device of the user, and amongst other things contain information similar to the log files. Below, we list our service providers.

If your data is used for other purposes, we will inform you beforehand, and only use the data if you have provided your prior express consent.


4. Service provider Google

In the scope of our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of our website, we use services of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”).

Google is certified according to the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees compliance with the European Data Protection Legislation.



a. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics as a web analysis service. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files stored on your computer allowing them to analyse how you use our website. The information about your use of this website (including your IP address) that is generated by the cookie is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizelp()” extension and therefore IP addresses are abbreviated by Google in member states within the European Union, or in other contracting states of the agreement on the European Economic Area, before transfer, to prevent them from being directly linked to a particular individual. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the provider, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity for the website operator, and to provide further services in connection with the use of this website and of the Internet. If legally required, or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google, Google may forward these data to third parties. Google will never associate your IP address with any other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being installed on your device by changing the settings of your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that if you do so you may not have full access to all the functions of this website.

For more information on the purpose and the extent of data collection and processing by Google and on your related rights and privacy protecting settings, please refer to the data protection information of Google at

In addition, the data automatically sent via your browser, such as your IP address, will be transferred to Google Maps in the USA and stored there. The provider saves this data as a usage profile under some circumstances, and uses this for purposes of advertising and market research. If you are logged into Google at the same time, this data will be associated directly with your account. If you do not want the data to be associated with your profile, you must log out before activating the button. By using this website, you agree to Google, one of its agents, or third-party providers collecting, processing, and using the data that was automatically collected or entered by you.

c. Youtube

We use the provider YouTube, a service of Google, to embed videos.

These videos are stored on and can be played directly from our site. YouTube uses cookies for data collection and statistical data evaluation. YouTube uses cookies amongst other things to collect reliable video statistics, to prevent fraud and improve the user experience. The information about your use of this website (including your IP address) which is created by the cookie, is transferred to a YouTube server in the USA and is stored there.  Your IP address cannot be allocated to you, unless you have logged into YouTube or another Google service before calling up the page, and/or are permanently logged in. If you do not want this, you must log out of your Youtube account and your other Google accounts.

We receive statistical values from the YouTube cookies, about the retrieval of individual videos embedded in the website, without relation to the relevant user.

The embedded videos from YouTube will be used in the scope of the permitted usage by YouTube, which all users must accept. If you become aware of copyright infringements, please report these directly to YouTube. We use embedded YouTube videos in the extended data protection mode. This means that YouTube does not store any cookies for a user who displays a website with a YouTube video player, but does not click on the video to start playback. If the YouTube video player is clicked, YouTube can store cookies on the computer of the user, under certain circumstances. Please note that as the provider of the websites, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by YouTube. You can find further information about the official data protection policy of YouTube at

d. Google Fonts

We include the fonts ("Google Fonts") of the provider Google. The inclusion of this web font occurs via a server request, as a rule a server of Google in the USA. In this context, the server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the terminal device of the visitor to these websites is stored by Google. For further information, a privacy statement exists at


VII. Rights of the Data Subjects

You have the right to access to the personal data saved about you. According to the legal specifications, you also have the right to rectification of incorrect data, blocking, data portability and erasure of your personal data. To this end, send us an e-mail with the subject “data protection”.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint to a data protection authority, if you are of the opinion that processing the personal data relating to you infringes the legal specifications.

If you have provided consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

You can object to the future processing of your personal data according to the legal requirements at any time. The right to object refers in particular to the processing for direct marketing purposes.


VIII. Storage Duration of Personal Data

We save personal data for the duration of the relevant legal storage period, and/or as long as the purpose of collection exists. After the storage period has elapsed, a routine erasure of the data will occur, unless there is a requirement for contract initiation or contractual fulfilment. If the user data is not erased, since it is required for other purposes which are permitted by law, its processing will be restricted as far as possible. The data will be blocked accordingly if possible, and not processed for other purposes. This applies e. g. to data which has to be preserved due to commercial law or tax law.


IX. Security information

We work hard to process your personal data in such a way, that the regulations and data protection laws are adhered to, and in order to protect this data, using all the technical and organisational possibilities. Our website and/or communication via our website is encrypted by HTTPS.
