4. Data collec­tion on our website


Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, effi­cient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are auto­mat­i­cally deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recog­nize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alter­na­tively, your browser can be config­ured to auto­mat­i­cally accept cookies under certain condi­tions or to always reject them, or to auto­mat­i­cally delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the func­tion­ality of this website.

Cookies which are neces­sary to allow elec­tronic commu­ni­ca­tions or to provide certain func­tions you wish to use (such as the shop­ping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 para­graph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website oper­ator has a legit­i­mate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an opti­mized service provided free of tech­nical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated sepa­rately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider auto­mat­i­cally collects and stores infor­ma­tion that your browser auto­mat­i­cally trans­mits to us in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Oper­ating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures prelim­i­nary to a contract.

Contact form

Should you send us ques­tions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your ques­tion and any follow-up ques­tions. We do not share this infor­ma­tion without your permis­sion.

We will, there­fore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is suffi­cient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its dele­tion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any manda­tory statu­tory provi­sions, espe­cially those regarding manda­tory data reten­tion periods, remain unaf­fected by this provi­sion.

5. Analytics and adver­tising

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is oper­ated by 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 that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. 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.

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website oper­ator has a legit­i­mate interest in analyzing user behavior to opti­mize both its website and its adver­tising.

IP anonymiza­tion

We have acti­vated the IP anonymiza­tion feature on this website. Your IP address will be short­ened by Google within the Euro­pean Union or other parties to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Economic Area prior to trans­mis­sion to the United States. Only in excep­tional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and short­ened there. Google will use this infor­ma­tion on behalf of the oper­ator of this website to eval­uate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website oper­ator. The IP address trans­mitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
