Collection and storage of personal data and the nature and purpose of their use
When you access our website, the browser used on your end device automatically sends information to our website server. This information is temporarily stored in a log file. The following information will be collected without any action on your part and will be saved until it is automatically deleted:
- IP address and domain name (if resolvable) of the requesting computer,
- Date and time of access and number of accesses,
- Duration of the session,
- Name and URL of the retrieved file,
- Website from which the access is made (referer URL),
- The browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.
The data cited is processed by us for the following purposes:
- To guarantee smooth establishment of the connection to the website,
- To assess the system security and stability, as well as
- For further administrative purposes.
The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) 1f of the GDPR. Our justified interest arises out of the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We will not use the data collected to identify you under any circumstances.
This data is not associated with data from other data sources.
Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of data acquisition for the provision of the website, this applies when the relevant session is ended. If the data are stored in log files, this is the case after no more than eight weeks. Any further storage and combination with other data is not carried out.
The acquisition of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for operation of the website. The user therefore has no option to object.
Our website uses "cookies". In the process, data is stored locally in the cache of your browser, which continues to exist and can be read even after closing the browser window or exiting the program – insofar as they do not delete the cache and insofar as they are not session cookies. Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your end device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or display advertising.
Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process (essential cookies) or to provide certain functions that you have requested (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping basket function) or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically faultless and optimised provision of their services. If consent to save cookies has been requested, the saving of the relevant cookies takes place exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 (1a) GDPR); this consent can be revoked at any time. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or exclude them generally, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website. If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the framework of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.
The following cookies are used on our website:
By submitting your information by pressing the "Send" button in the contact form, you agree that we may process and store your information in the contact form, in particular your personal data, for the purpose of forwarding it as requested by you. As soon as the purposeful use of this data ceases to apply, this data will be deleted by us. The data will be sent exclusively to the addressee named in the respective contact form, who has also been contractually obligated to comply with the data protection provisions. Personal data is not passed on to third parties. The processing of data entered in the contact form therefore takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1a) GDPR) as granted by your sending of the form. You can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future. Notifying us informally by email is sufficient for this. The legality of any data processing procedures that took place prior to consent being revoked remains unaffected.
Social media and functional plug-ins
This website uses Google Fonts, a service for embedding web fonts hosted by Google Inc ("Google"). Service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
Google states that it does not create cookies or link them to any Google logins. The data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in adding attractive fonts to its web offerings and in using a CDN (Content Delivery Network) to increase loading times for this purpose, especially if the service does not process any further data (apart from the IP address) of the data subject.
For further information on Google Fonts as well as the data protection declaration from Google, please use the following links: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
Use of YouTube videos
This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider "YouTube", which belongs to Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Whose parent company is: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
The enhanced data protection mode is used here as the user information is only saved once the respective video has started to play, according to the providers information. If the playing of the embedded YouTube video is started, the provider sets "YouTube" cookies in order to collect information about the user behaviour. According to information from "YouTube", these serve to collect video statistics to improve the user-friendliness and to prevent improper activities amongst other things. If you are logged in with Google, your data is directly assigned to your account if you click on a video. If you do not wish this assignment with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users that are not logged in) as usage profiles and assesses these. One such assessment in particular is carried out per Art. 6 (1f) GDPR on the basis of the legitimate interests of Google in the incorporation of personalised advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of their website. You are entitled to veto the formation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
Independent of any playing of the embedded videos, with every call-up of this website a "double-click" connection to the Google network is recorded, which could trigger further data processing activities without our influence.
For more information on data protection at "YouTube", please refer to the data protection declaration of the provider at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure within the website visit in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can see whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
