Following, we would like to inform you about our Data Privacy Statement. In this section, you will find information on the collection and use of your personal data when using our website. We act in compliance with the German data protection law. You may access this statement on our website at any time.
We draw your attention to the fact that data communication on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps and cannot be protected completely against third-party access.
Use of the contact data in our company details for commercial advertisement is expressly undesired unless we have given our prior written consent or a business relationship already exists. The provider and all individuals mentioned on this website hereby object to any commercial use and disclosure of their data.
You may generally visit our website without providing any personal data. If personal data is collected on our site (e.g. name, address or e-mail address), this is, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be made available to third parties without your explicit consent. Insofar as a contractual relationship is to be established, developed or amended between you and us, or you place an inquiry with us, we will collect and use your personal data to the extent required for this purpose (inventory data). We will collect, process and use personal data to the extent necessary to enable you to make use of our web contents (usage data). Any personal data will only be stored as long as this is necessary for the relevant purpose (processing of your inquiry or completion of a contract). In this respect, the retention periods according to tax and commercial law will be observed. Upon request of the competent authorities, we may provide information on such data (inventory data), if this is necessary for purposes of criminal prosecution, averting of danger, performing legal tasks of the constitution protection authorities or the military counter-intelligence service, or for the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
By voluntary registration of your e-mail address for our newsletter and confirmation by the double-opt-in procedure, you express your consent that you wish to receive our e-mail newsletter. You may object to this use of your e-mail dress at any time without any costs arising other than the basic cost of transmission. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Each e-mail includes an “Unsubscribe” link. For receiving the newsletter, the provision of an e-mail address is sufficient. Any additional data provided voluntarily will only serve the personalisation of the newsletter.

Order data processing
We have concluded a contract regarding order data processing with Google and fully implement the strict provisions of German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.
We use the “activation of IP anonymisation” function on our website. This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within EU member states or in other countries which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to and truncated by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Demographic characteristics by Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function by Google Analytics. This allows for generating records including information on the age, gender and interests of website visitors. This data originates from interest-related Google advertising as well as from third-party provider visitor data. This data cannot be allocated to specific persons. You may deactivate this function at any time in the display settings in your Google account or generally refuse the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the “Objection to data collection” section.
Privacy statement for the Facebook plugin (“Like”)
This website uses Facebook.com plugins provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Users of our website where the Facebook plugin (“Like” button) is installed, are hereby informed that the plugin establishes a connection to Facebook resulting in a transmission to your browser so that the plugin appears on the website. In addition, its use will result in the transmission of data containing information on your visits to our website to the Facebook servers. For Facebook users logged in, this will in turn lead to the allocation of usage data to their personal Facebook account. As soon as you actively use the Facebook plugin when you are logged in to Facebook (e.g. by clicking on the “Like” button or using a comment function), this data will be transmitted to your Facebook account and published. You may only avoid this by logging out from your Facebook account in advance. For further information regarding the use of data by Facebook, please refer to the data protection regulations on Facebook at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.
