The Internet pages use, in part, so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective, and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.
Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They are deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can adjust your browser settings so that you will be informed of the placement of cookies and can permit cookies only in the individual case, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The functionality of this website might be limited if cookies are deactivated.
Cookies necessary to perform the electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the error-free technical and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyze your surfing behavior) are stored, these are addressed separately in this privacy statement.
Server log files
The provider of these pages collects and stores information automatically in so-called server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. This includes:
- browser type and browser version
- used operating system
- referrer URL
- hostname of inquiring computer
- time of server inquiry
- IP address
This data is not combined with other data sources.
This data is captured based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technologically error-free display and optimization of its website; for this purpose, the server log files must be captured.
If you use the contact form to submit inquiries to us, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact information entered there by you, is stored by us for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not forward this data without your consent.
Processing of data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal notification by email suffices. The legitimacy of data processing that took place until your revocation remains unaffected.
The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you request erasure, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data retention is void (e.g. after complete handling of your inquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Request by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.
The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.
