We attach great importance to protecting your data and ensuring your privacy. In the following, therefore, we inform you about the collection and use of personal data when using our website.

(1) Anonymous data collection

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We do not save any personal data in this context. In order to improve our offer, we only evaluate statistical data. This does not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.

(2) Collection and processing when using the contact form

When using the contact form, we collect personal data (individual details about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person) only to the extent provided by you. We only use your email address to process your enquiry. Your data is then deleted, unless you have consented to further processing and use.

(3) Collection, processing and use of personal data

We collect personal data (individual details about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person) only to the extent provided by you. We process and use your personal data in order to fulfil and process your order and to process your enquiries.

After the order has been fully processed, the data is first stored taking account of retention periods under tax and commercial law and then deleted upon expiry of the term, unless you have given your consent to further processing and use.

(4) Use of your email address for sending newsletters

We use your email address, independently of order processing, exclusively for our own advertising purposes for sending the newsletter, provided that you have expressly consented to this. Your declaration of consent to be given is as follows: "Subscribe to the newsletter" or "I would like to be regularly informed about interesting offers by email."

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by sending us a message; you can find the contact details for this in our imprint. Your email address will then be deleted.

(5) Forwarding of personal data

Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. The only exceptions to this are our service partners, who we need in order to process the contractual relationship. In these cases, we strictly observe the requirements of the Federal Data Protection Act. The amount of data transmission is limited to a minimum.

(6) Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies in several places. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies also enable our systems to recognize your browser and offer you services. Cookies do not contain personal data.

(7) Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analysed. 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. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we would like to point out, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link [http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].

(8) Use of Facebook social plug-ins

Our website uses so-called social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Facebook social plug-in”. You can find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins and what they look like here developers.facebook.com/plugins

When you call up a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example press the "Like" button or leave a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published on your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of the Facebook plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the "Facebook Blocker" (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).

(9) Information, correction, blocking and deletion of data

You have the right to free-of-charge information about your stored data as well as the right to correction, deletion or blocking at any time. Contact us if you wish. You can find the contact details in our imprint.
