Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies which are necessary for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the form including the contact details you provided will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Provider is Google Ireland Limited, based in Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time as follows: You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the collection of your data on future visits to this website: deactivate Google Analytics . This does not affect the legality of the processing that took place until the revocation.
You can find more information about the handling of user data by Google Analytics in Google’s data protection declaration:
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This will cause Google to shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the United States. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
Processing by a processor
We have concluded a contract with Google for processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics of Google Analytics
This website uses the function “demographic features” of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and visitor data from third parties. This information cannot be associated with any specific individual. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described under “Objection to data collection”.
- Recipients of personal data
We pass on your data to third parties only if this is necessary to fulfil the purpose. Furthermore, data is passed on to authorities on the basis of statutory provisions pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c and e GDPR.
In addition, in various cases we use contract processors pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR who may receive data from us or have access to your data in connection with their services.
- Privacy information for our Facebook page
With this page we use the technical platform and the services of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
With Facebook, we are jointly responsible for processing Insights-Data based on the following agreement:

Whether and how Facebook uses the data from the use of Facebook pages for its own purposes, and to what extent they are assigned to individual user profiles, is currently not disclosed by Facebook. It is also unknown whether the data will be passed on to third parties and if and when it will be deleted.
When accessing a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your end device or Internet connection is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. In addition, Facebook stores information about the users’ end devices (e.g. as part of the “registration notification” function); Facebook may thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged on to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook identification is stored on your terminal. In connection with cookies, we refer in particular to the explanation of cookies in our general data protection declaration and in the Facebook cookie guideline (https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies). This enables Facebook to understand that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons integrated into web pages enable Facebook to record your visits to these web pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. This information can be used to tailor content or advertising to you.
If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the function “stay logged in”, delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. This deletes Facebook information that immediately identifies you.
This allows you to use this Facebook page without revealing your Facebook ID. When you access the interactive features of the page (like, comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. Once you have logged in, Facebook will recognize you again as a specific user.
