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.

Data privacy policy

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.

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.
