SSL or TLS encryption
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, the site operator. An encrypted connection is indicated by the browser's address bar switching from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon in your browser bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

Under the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient as well as the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, you have the right to rectification, blocking or deletion of this data.

Server Log Files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This includes:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data will not be merged with other data sources.
The basis for the data processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the conclusion or preparation of a contract.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively subject to your consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal notification by email to us is sufficient. The legal basis for the data processing measures carried out up to the point of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
We will retain the data entered by you in the contact form until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent for the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially regarding retention periods, remain unaffected.
This website uses features 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”, text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the U.S.A. and stored there.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise its website and advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymisation feature on this website. This ensures that your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of 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 complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the U.S.A. and truncated there. On behalf of the operator Google will use this information for the purpose of analysing your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser with any other data held by Google.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” feature of Google Analytics. It allows reports to be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be associated with a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section “Objection to Data Collection”.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is needed in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
