This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator.

Under the applicable law you have the right to receive information, free of charge, about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing including the right to correction or erasure of the data. To exercise this right and for any questions relating to the topic of personal data you may contact us at any time at the address specified under Legal Notice.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of processing your personal data. To exercise this right you may contact us at any time at the address under our legal notice. The right to restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
If you contest the accuracy of the personal data, we typically require time to verify its accuracy; During the time we are verifying the accuracy you have the right to request the restriction of processing your personal data.
If your personal data was/is being processed unlawfully, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
If we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
If you have objected according to Article 21(1) GDPR, we must verify whether our legitimate grounds override yours. Until the overriding grounds have been verified, you have the right to request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
If you have restricted processing of your personal data, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.

4.Data collection on this website
Cookies Some parts of our website use so-called cookies. Cookies are not harmful to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our service more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
We mainly use so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your session. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can configure your browser to alert you when cookies are being placed and to allow you to decide whether to accept them individually, or to block cookies in certain situations or in general. Deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of this website. Cookies required for electronic communication or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g. basket function) are saved on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to provide technically faultless and optimised services.
Server log files
The provider of this website automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
browser type and version
operating system used
host name of the accessing computer
time of the server request
This data will not be merged with other data sources. This data is collected on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in technically proper display and optimisation of its website – which requires collecting the server log files.
E-Mail, phone or fax inquiries
When contacting us by e-mail, phone or fax, your inquiry including all personal data generated in the process (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed for the purpose of processing your request. This data will not be shared without your consent. This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or necessary for pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) and/or our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the efficient processing of inquiries submitted to us. We keep the data submitted by you in the contact requests until you request erasure, withdraw your consent to storage, or the purposes for which data was stored no longer exists (e.g. after completing your request). Compulsory legal provisions – particularly legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you as well as information which allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to the receipt of the newsletter. Other data will not be collected, unless this is on a voluntary basis. We only use this data in order to send the requested information and we do not transmit this to third parties.
The data entered in the newsletter registration form is solely processed on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can withdraw your given consent to the saving of your data and email address, as well as the use of this for the distribution of the newsletter, at any time, for example by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. However, the legitimacy of the processing already conducted based on the consent is unaffected. The data provided by you for the purpose of the newsletter subscription is stored by us or our newsletter service provider until your withdrawal from the newsletter service and is deleted from the distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. This does not affect data saved by us for other purposes.
Once you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be added to our or the newsletter service provider’s blacklist to prevent future e-mails. The data from the blacklist is only used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This is both in your interest as well as our interest in complying with the legal provisions on sending newsletters (legitimate interest as defined by Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). There is no time limit related to blacklist data.
You may object to storage if your interests override our legitimate interests.

As soon as you play a YouTube video on this website a connection to the YouTube servers is established. In line with this, the YouTube server receives information about which page on our website you visited.

After starting a video, YouTube can further save cookies to your device. These cookies can provide YouTube with information about visitors to this website. This information is used to e.g. collect statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent fraud attempts. These cookies remain on your device until deleted by you.
After starting a YouTube video, other data processing operations beyond our control may be triggered. YouTube is used in the interest of making our online service appealing. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
