§  3 Why do we process your data and on what legal basis is it processed?

a)  Server log files and cookies

(1)  When you use the website for informational purposes only, i.e. when you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we will only collect the personal data that your browser sends to our server. We collect the following data when you wish to view our website:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Difference in time zones in regard to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status / HTTP status code
  • The amount of data sent in each case
  • Website from which the request comes
  • Browser operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

This data will be deleted as soon as you stop using our website.

(2)  Cookies will be stored on your computer in addition to the above-mentioned data when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are assigned to the browser you use and placed on your hard disk which then direct specific information to the entity that has set the cookie (which in this case is us). Cookies cannot launch programs or transfer viruses to your computer. Our website uses the following types of cookies whose scope and functionality are explained below:

  • Transient cookies
  • Persistent cookies

‘Transient cookies’ are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They in particular relate to session cookies. These store so-called session IDs that permit different requests from your browser to be assigned to the joint session. This will allow your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

‘Persistent cookies’ are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in your browser’s security settings.

It is possible to configure your browser settings to suit your requirements and block the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies, for example. We do, however, draw your attention to the fact that you may not be able to use all functions of this website and that it may, for example, be necessary for you to log back in every time you return.

(3)  The legal basis for the data processing described is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. The data collected is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to guarantee its stability and security, or is used to make the Internet offering more user-friendly and effective overall.

b)  Contact by email or contact form

(1)  We will store the data you provide when you contact us by email or contact form (your email address and, if applicable, your name and your telephone number, the content of your message) for the purposes of answering your questions. We will delete the data generated within this context when it is no longer necessary to store the data or will restrict how it is processed if legal obligations to retain data exist.

(2)  The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) (1) (b) GDPR as far as the initiation of a contractual relationship is concerned and Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR as far as other inquiries are concerned, as we have a legitimate interest in being able to answer your inquiries.

c)  Orders through our webshop

(1)  If you would like to place an order through our webshop, it will be necessary for the conclusion of the contract that you provide us with your personal data, which we require to process your order and, if necessary, to contact you in the event of queries regarding your order. Mandatory details required for the execution of the contracts (first name, last name, street / house number, town, postcode, telephone and email) have been identified separately; the provision of additional details is voluntary. We will process the data you have provided for the purposes of dealing with your order. We may forward your payment data to our house bank for this purpose. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (1) (b) GDPR.

(2)  The IP address assigned to you at the time of the order will also be stored within the scope of your order for the purposes of clarifying cases of misuse (e.g. order under a false name). The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in clarifying such cases of abuse pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR.

(3)  Your data will be deleted as soon as we no longer need it for the aforementioned purposes. We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. We will, however, restrict the processing of such data after two years, i.e. your data will only be used for compliance with legal obligations.

d)  Google Analytics

(1)  This website uses the ‘Google Analytics’ service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’), to analyse its use by users.

(2)  The service uses ‘cookies’ – text files that are stored on your end device. Google uses the information collected with the help of cookies to compile an analysis of website usage and website activity within the scope of the agreement to process data („agreement to process data“) that we have concluded with Google.

(3)  IP anonymisation (“anonymizeIP”) is used within the scope of the service, i.e. within the member states of the European Economic Area, your IP address will be truncated. Truncating the addresses in this way prevents you from being personally identified by your IP address.

(4) You may exercise the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by configuring the appropriate settings in your browser. You may also use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google. The following link will take you to the corresponding plug-in: You may furthermore opt out of the collection of this information for this website only by clicking the following link: deactivate tracking by Google Analytics for this website. This will set a so-called opt-out cookie that prevents this information from being collected in the future when you visit our website.

(5)  You can find more information about the use of data by Google at: .

(6)  The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the United States of America (USA) and stored there. No general adequacy decision by the European Commission, which would certify that the USA has an adequate level of data protection, exists for the USA. Google, however, is certified under the ‘EU-US Privacy Shield’ that enables an appropriate level of protection for the processing of your personal data in the United States. You may view the certification by Google here:

(7)  The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

(8)  The information collected through cookies that may possibly be associated with you will be deleted 14 months after it has been collected.

§4  Recipients of data

Only those bodies at our company that need to access your personal data in order to fulfil the above-mentioned purposes will be granted access. The above-mentioned data may also be processed by contract processors who operate or maintain our website and systems. The data will further be transferred to the service providers expressly mentioned in Clause 3, with whom an agreement for processing orders has been concluded, insofar as they act as contract processors for us.

§5  Is there an obligation to provide personal data?

You are neither legally nor contractually obliged to provide us with personal data. In some cases, however, we will be unable to offer all the website’s functionalities without this data.

§6  Does automated decision making or profiling take place?

We do not perform automated decisions or other profiling activities.

§7 Social Media

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with customers, interested parties and users who are active on these social networks and to inform them about our services.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This could result in risks for users, e.g. it could make it more difficult to enforce the rights of users. With regard to US providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, we would like to point out that by doing so they commit themselves to comply with EU data protection standards.

In addition, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behavior and the resulting interests of users. The usage profiles can also be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are presumed to correspond to the interests of users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer in which the user’s usage behaviour and interests are stored. In addition, data can be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in the effective information of users and communication with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers to give their consent to data processing (i.e. declare their consent, e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing operations and the opt-out options, please refer to the following linked information provided by the providers.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and give information. Should you nevertheless need help, you can contact us.
