Some Internet sites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are saved by your browser and stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are known as “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can set your browser so that you are informed if cookies are installed, only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. They provide the following data: browser type and version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, and time of the server request. These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. These data are not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of an illegal use.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details in the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for processing the enquiry and any follow-up questions. We do not pass these data on.
If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further information from you is voluntary. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This will cause your IP address to be abbreviated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in Member States of the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be 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 evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Disabling data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out browser add-on is installed which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics
Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for processing order data and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.
Google Analytics’ demographic features
This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain information on the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time from your Google Account ad preferences or prevent Google Analytics from collecting your information as described in the “Opt-out of data collection” section.
As an AdWords customer, we also use Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Google Adwords installs a cookie on your computer (“conversion cookie”) if you have accessed our website via a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of ours and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that someone clicked on the ad and was redirected to our page. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the installation of the cookie required for this – for example by using a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the “googleadservices.com” domain.
Our Social Media Pages
Data Processing via Social Media Platforms
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social platforms. The social platforms we use in detail can be found below.
Social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter etc. can usually analyze your user behavior comprehensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media sites triggers numerous processing processes relevant to data protection. In detail:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social media platform can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, however, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media platform. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your terminal device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media platforms can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-related advertising within and outside the respective social media page can be displayed to you. If you have an account with the respective social media platform, interest-related advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.
Our social media sites are designed to ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social media platforms may be based on different legal bases, which must be stated by the operators of the social media platforms (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Data Controller and Assertion of Rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing processes triggered during this visit. You can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data transferability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media platform (e.g. against Facebook).
Please note that despite our joint responsibility with the social media platform operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing procedures of the social media platforms. Our options are largely based on the corporate policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly by us via the social media page will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the social media platforms for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social media platforms directly (e.g. in their privacy policies, see below).

Our website uses YouTube, a social plug-in of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”), to embed contents of the social media platform YouTube on pages of our website. For this purpose, data is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If you have a user account and are registered with Google, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Google stores this data as user profiles and uses it for advertising, market research and/or the design of its websites to meet requirements. Such an analysis is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) to present needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social media platform about your activities on our website. You have the right to reject to the creation of these user profiles. Please contact Google directly for this purpose.
We use YouTube to be able to display and offer you content and functions of the social media platform YouTube on our website and thereby to improve our website and the user experience and make it more interesting. This is necessary to pursue our legitimate interests in the processing of personal data by a third party. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
If you want to prevent the transmission of data, you will not be able to use these functions of YouTube. Irrespective of this, we recommend that you regularly log out of your local user account after using a social platform, in particular before activating integrated content, as this prevents your profile from being assigned by the respective provider.
Google has signed and certified the Privacy Shield Agreement between the European Union and the United States. By doing so, Google undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law.
