What constitutes personal data?

Personal data refers to any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural
person. This includes information such as your name, address, telephone number or email
address. Information which is not directly connected to your actual identity, such as favorite websites or number of users of a site, is not regarded as personal data.

How do we collect and process your personal data?

If the online service includes the option to enter personal or commercial data (email addresses, names, addresses, etc.), the user discloses any such data on a purely voluntary basis. Emails are transmitted via the contact form. When you send us a message via the contact form, your personal data is collected only to the extent necessary to reply. The email is sent without encryption. If you have provided us with any personal data, we shall only use this data for the technical administration of the web pages and to respond to your wishes and requests. This data usage allows us to process any contract concluded with you or to reply to any queries you may have. The legal basis for processing is Article 6(1)(a) and Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. 

We will also use this data for product-related surveys, marketing and statistical purposes only if you have given us your consent beforehand, or if you – subject to it being provided for under statutory regulations – have not raised an objection. In this case the legal basis for processing is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR and Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Your personal data are not disclosed, sold or transmitted in any other way to third parties unless it is necessary in order to fulfil a contract or you have given your express consent. Any consent granted can be revoked at any time with future effect.

For how long will my data be stored?

We store any personal data you have disclosed to us until they no longer serve any contractual purpose. This means, for example, until any queries have been resolved, or in the case of newsletters, until you choose to unsubscribe from them. If an extended storage period is permissible by law, the data will be stored within this framework.

If you no longer wish that we utilize your data, we will comply with this request immediately. You can send us such a request at any time. Please refer to our contact information above. Data retained for invoicing and accounting purposes will not be affected by a deletion request.

When will my data be deleted?

We will delete the personal data we store about you: if you revoke your consent to such storage; if the storage and processing of such data is no longer necessary because their original purpose has been fulfilled; or if the storage of such data becomes inadmissible on other legal grounds. Data pertaining to invoicing and accounting purposes will not be affected by a deletion request.

Use of cookies

When you visit our website, we make use of what is commonly known as ‘cookies’. Cookies are small data files which are stored on your computer. Cookies help us understand better the user traffic to our website, and they show us how we can optimize our offerings and services for you. For these purposes, we use several types of cookies.

On the one hand, we use so-called ‘session cookies’, which are stored temporarily and only for the duration of your use of one of our web pages. On the other hand, we also use ‘permanent cookies’ in order to record data on repeat visitors to one or more of our web pages. We thus utilize cookies in order to guide you through our offerings optimally as well as to ‘recognize’ you when you come back to our website and thus present you with a diversified and rich content selection. Permanent cookies operate based on a unique identification number assigned to you. Your name, IP address, or any other identifiable information are not stored. Based on your usage of our website, we do not create an individual profile of you.

Our website offer can also be used without cookies. You can change your browser settings to limit or disable cookies altogether. However, keep in mind that applying such settings may affect the way in which the website is displayed or limit user guidance.

Cookies that are needed to carry out electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (‘functional cookies’) are stored on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies on your computer to allow it to provide you with a technically flawless, streamlined service. If other cookies (such as cookies for analyzing your browsing behavior) are stored on your computer, they will be treated separately in this Privacy Policy.

How do we ensure the security of data processing?

Our company takes all of the necessary technical and organizational security measures to ensure your personal data are protected from loss or misuse. Accordingly, your data shall be stored in a secure operational environment that is not open to the public. In certain cases, your personal data are encrypted by Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) during transmission. This means that an approved encryption procedure is used for communication between your computer and our company’s servers if your browser supports SSL.

For security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as the orders or enquiries that you send to us as the website operators, this site uses SSL and TLS encryption. You can identify an encrypted connection from the padlock symbol in your browser bar and the fact that “http://” in the address bar changes to “https://”. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

If you initiate contact with us via email, bear in mind that the confidentiality of the transmitted information cannot be guaranteed. The content of emails may be viewed by third parties. We would therefore recommend that you arrange for confidential information to be sent to us exclusively by post or another electronic pathway that uses encryption.

What are your data protection rights?

You are entitled to obtain information at any time, and free of charge, regarding your stored personal data, its origin and potential recipients and the purpose of the data processing (Article 15 GDPR) and, where applicable, the right to rectification of inaccurate data (Article 16 GDPR), the right to erasure of such data (Article 17 GDPR), the right to restriction of processing according to Article 18 GDPR, the right to object (Article 21 GDPR) and the right to receive the personal data that you have provided according to Article 20 GDPR. The limitations according to Sections 34 and 35 BDSG apply to the right to information and the right to deletion.


In addition, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a responsible supervisory authority in the event of infringements under data protection law (Article 77 GDPR in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG). The responsible supervisory authority in data protection matters is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company has its registered office. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found here.

How can you withdraw your consent to data processing?

Many data processing operations can only occur with your express consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. All you have to do is send us a simple email. The legality of any data processing carried out before you withdraw your consent will not be affected by the withdrawal of your consent.

Where can you direct queries or complaints and assert your rights?

In the event of any queries or complaints or wish to assert your data protection rights, please feel free to contact us.

Application and use of YouTube

YouTube components are integrated into this website. YouTube is an internet video portal that gives video publishers the opportunity to upload video clips free of charge, and also gives other users the opportunity to view, rate and comment on these video clips free of charge. YouTube authorizes the publication of all kinds of videos, which is why entire film and television programs along with music videos, trailers or user-generated videos can be viewed via the internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time you visit a page on our website where a YouTube component has been integrated (i.e., a YouTube video), your internet browser is automatically instructed by the respective YouTube component to download the corresponding YouTube content from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be retrieved at www.youtube.com/intl/en/yt/about/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are both informed of the specific sub-pages on our website that you have visited.

If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube is informed when you visit a sub-page containing a YouTube video of which specific sub-page of our website the data subject has visited. This information is collated by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will always be informed via the YouTube component about the fact that you visited our website if you are also logged in to YouTube at the same time as visiting our website. This happens regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want such information to be transferred to YouTube and Google, you can prevent this from happening by logging out of your YouTube account before visiting our website.

The privacy regulations published by YouTube further clarify the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
