2. General and mandatory information

The providers of these website are very serious about the protection of your personal data. We always deal with your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data privacy statement.

When using this website, various personal data are being collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to inherent security vulnerabilities. A total protection of the data against unauthorized access by third parties is therefore not possible.

The responsible party for data processing on this website is:

Telefon: +49 1781582927

The responsible party is the private individual or legal entity who individually or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw an already given consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail sent to us is sufficient for such purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

Data Transferability Right

You are entitled to have data we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to a different party responsible, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Within the scope of the relevant legislation, you are entitled to obtain information free of charge at any time on your stored personal data, its source and its recipients, the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to have this data corrected, disabled or deleted.

Objection to advertising mails

The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information materials not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

3. Data collection through our website

On our website we use Cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to have a more user-friendly, effective and secure website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your computer until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You may configure your browser to be informed when cookies are created and only allow cookies for specific cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies of specific types or in general, and also activate the automatic removal of cookies when you close the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic process of communication or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically accurate and optimized delivery of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing activity) are stored, they are treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system in use
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the connecting computer
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form including the contact data you provided will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and the case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can withdraw an already given consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail sent to us is sufficient for such purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

The data entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer exists (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal requirements - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether data input on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human being or by an automatic program. In order to do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the visitor enters the website. To perform the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or computer mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is performed.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in protecting its web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.
