Welcome to our website!
We attach great importance to the protection of your data and preservation of your privacy. Below we therefore inform you about the collection and use of personal data when using our website.
Unless otherwise specified below, the provision of your personal data is neither required by law or contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Failure to provide will have no consequences. This applies only to the extent that no indication to the contrary is made in the subsequent processing operations. “Personal Data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time you access our website, usage data is transmitted to us or our web hoster / IT service provider by your Internet browser and stored in log data (so-called server log files). This stored data includes, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the IP address, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from our overriding legitimate interest in ensuring trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offer.

Initiative contact of the customer by e-mail
If you initiate business contact with us by e-mail, we collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) only to the extent provided by you. The data processing serves the purpose of processing and responding to your contact request. If the contact serves the implementation of pre-contractual measures (e.g. consultation in case of interest in purchase, preparation of an offer) or concerns a contract already concluded between you and us, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. If the contact is made for other reasons, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from our overriding legitimate interest in processing and responding to your request. In this case, you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data relating to you based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will only use your e-mail address to process your request. Your data will then be deleted in compliance with statutory retention periods, unless you have consented to further processing and use.
Use of your personal data for sending postal advertisements
We use your personal data (name, address), which we have received in the context of the sale of a product or service, to send you postal advertising, unless you have objected to this use. The provision of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide it will result in no contract being concluded. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO from our overriding legitimate interest in direct advertising. You can object to this use of your address data at any time by notifying us. The contact details for exercising the objection can be found in the imprint.
Use of the e-mail address for sending newsletters
We use your e-mail address independently of the contract processing exclusively for our own advertising purposes for newsletter dispatch, provided that you have expressly consented to this. The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. To do so, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by notifying us. Your e-mail address will then be removed from the distribution list.
However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.
Technically necessary cookies
The processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO from our overriding legitimate interest in ensuring the optimal functionality of the website and a user-friendly and effective design of our offer. You have the right to object to this processing of personal data relating to you at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation.
Use of Google Analytics 4
We use the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; “Google”) on our website. The data processing serves the purpose of analyzing this website and its visitors as well as for marketing and advertising purposes. To this end, Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The following information, among others, may be collected: IP address, date and time of page view, click path, information about the browser you are using and the device you are using (device), pages visited, referrer URL (website from which you accessed our website), location data, purchase activity. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Google Analytics uses technologies such as cookies, web storage in the browser and tracking pixels that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by this about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. For the USA, there is an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF). Google has certified itself in accordance with the TADPF and has thus undertaken to comply with European data protection principles.
Both Google and U.S. government agencies have access to your data. Your data may be linked by Google to other data, such as your search history, your personal accounts, your usage data from other devices, and any other data Google has about you. When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your website is automatically collected and processed in anonymized form. The IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Use of Google Ads conversion tracking
We use the online advertising program “Google Ads” on our website and in this context conversion tracking (visitor evaluation). Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland). When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and therefore do not identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were directed to this page. Each Google Ads customer contains a different cookie. Thus, there is a possibility that cookies can be tracked across Ads customers’ websites. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. Here, we learn the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. Your data may be transmitted to Google LLC servers in the USA. For the USA, an adequacy decision of the EU Commission is in place, the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF). Google is not certified according to the TADPF.
The data transfer takes place, among other things, on the basis of standard contractual clauses as appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data, available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks and https://business.safety.google/adscontrollerterms/. The processing of your personal data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from our overriding legitimate interest to target the site visitors with interest-based advertising. You have the right to object to this processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. You can deactivate personalized advertising for you in Google’s advertising settings. You can find instructions on how to do this at: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de
Plug-ins and others
Use of vimeo
We use plug-ins from Vimeo Inc. (555 West 18th Street New York, New York 10011, USA; “Vimeo”) on our website to integrate videos from the “Vimeo” portal. When you call up pages of our website that are provided with such a plug-in, a connection is established to the servers of Vimeo and the plug-in is displayed on the page by notifying your browser. This transmits to the servers of Vimeo both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. by starting a video by pressing the corresponding button), this information is also assigned to your Vimeo account. Your data may be transmitted to the USA. For the USA, an adequacy decision of the EU Commission is in place, the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF). Vimeo is not certified under the TADPF. The data transfer takes place, among other things, on the basis of standard contractual clauses as appropriate safeguards for the protection of personal data, viewable at: https://commission.europa.eu/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clausesscc_de.
