If you request direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically feasible. SSL or TLS encryption
This page uses a SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential contents, such as orders or requests that you send to us as a page operator. You can see that there is an encrypted connection if 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 enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. Encrypted payment transactions on this website
After the conclusion of a fee-based contract you have an obligation to send us your payment data (e.g. account number for direct debit). This data is required for payment processing.
Payment transactions via the standard payment methods (Visa/Mastercard, direct debit procedures) are done exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can see that there is an encrypted connection if the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
For encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. Information, blocking, deletion

Data collection on our website
The Internet sites use some so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our services more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They will be automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the placement of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases, or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website can be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide specific functions that you want (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the error-free technical and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis of your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this Data Protection Policy.
Server log files
The provider of the pages collects and stores information automatically in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server question
Merging this data with other data sources is not performed.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information from the request form, including the contact information provided by you for the purpose of processing the request and for follow-up questions, will be stored. We do not disclose this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form is thus done exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. To do this, an informal notification by email is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data that you entered into the contact form remains with us until you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for data storage expires (e.g. after processing of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as it is necessary for the justification, content or change of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1(b) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process and use personal data about the use of our websites (usage data), to the extent this is necessary to allow the user to use or be billed for the service.
The customer data collected will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
Data transfer at contract conclusion for online shops, dealers and shipment of goods
We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary within the framework of processing the contract, for example, to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the credit institution commissioned with the payment processing. Further transfer of the data is not performed or only is only performed if you have expressly agreed to the transfer. The disclosure of your data to third parties without express consent, for example for advertising purposes, does not happen.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1(b) of the GDPR, which permits the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Our website uses functions of the LinkedIn network. The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
A connection to LinkedIn’s servers is created for each retrieval of one of our pages that contain the functions of LinkedIn. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our internet sites with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn “recommend” button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, it is possible for LinkedIn to assign your visit to our website to you and your user account. We would like to point out that as a provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the transferred data and its use by LinkedIn.

Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies.” These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both its web offerings and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address is shortened by Google before transmission to the USA from within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide additional services associated with the website and Internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to completely use all functions of this website. You can also prevent the collection of the data, that is generated by the cookie or that is related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address), by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection against data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents the collection of your data during future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
You can find more information on how to handle user data at Google Analytics in the Google Data Protection Policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=com.
Order data processing
We have concluded a contract for order data processing with Google and implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities in the use of Google Analytics.
Demographic features at Google Analytics
This website uses the function “demographic features” of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain statements on age, gender and interests from the page visitors. This data originates from interest-related advertising from Google and from third-party visitor data. No specific person can be assigned to this data. You can deactivate this function at any time via the display settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item “objection against data collection.”
If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address and information from you that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to the receipt of the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not disclose it to third parties.
The processing of the data entered into the newsletter form is done exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1(a) of the GDPR). The consent granted to store the data, email address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the “remove” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
We will store the data provided by you for the purposes of the newsletter subscription until your removal from the newsletter and delete it after the cancellation of the newsletter. Data stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the member area) remains unaffected by this.
This website uses MailChimp services for sending newsletters. The provider is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service that, among other things, can organize and analyze the sending of newsletters. If you enter data for the purposes of the newsletter subscription (e.g. email address), it is stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA.
MailChimp has a certification according to the “EU-US Privacy Shield.” The “Privacy Shield” is a convention between the European Union (EU) and the USA, that ensures compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
With MailChimp, we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. If you open an email sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the e-mail connects to the servers of MailChimp in the USA (so-called web-beacon). This can be used to determine whether a newsletter message is opened and which links have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g., time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used only for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you do not want an analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also cancel the newsletter directly on the website.
Data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by cancelling the newsletter. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
We will store the data provided by you for the purposes of the newsletter subscription until your removal from the newsletter and delete it after the cancellation of the newsletter both from our servers and also from the servers of MailChimp. Data stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the member area) remains unaffected by this.
You can find details of the Data Protection Policy of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.
Completion of a “Data Processing Agreement”
We have completed a so-called “Data Processing Agreement” with MailChimp, in which we oblige MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not disclose it to third parties. This contract can be viewed through the following link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/sample-agreement/.
Plug-ins and tools
Our website uses plug-ins from the Google YouTube page. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is made. The YouTube server will be notified about which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
The use of YouTube takes place in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR.
