We only process the personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as for our content and services. The processing of the personal data of our users takes place regularly only after the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained due to practical reasons, and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations. The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. In the event of collection of personal data (for example, name, address or e-mail addresses) on our sites, this is always done, as far as is possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express permission.
If we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for this.
In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
If the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that our company is subject to, then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (c) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the person in question or of another individual require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1) (d) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the above-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
The personal data of the person in question will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, the data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the Personal Data Operator is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
In order to guarantee the confidentiality of communication with you, we use so-called SSL/TLS encryption in accordance with the current state of technology. You can recognize these encrypted connections by the name "https://" in the page link in the address line of your browser and by the green lock symbol in the address line. Unencrypted pages are marked by "http://". Data that you transmit to this website, for example, when placing orders or inquiries, cannot be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.
Every time a user accesses our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is then collected:

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) of the GDPR also corresponds to these purposes.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for attaining the purpose for which it was collected. In case of collection of data for the provision of a website, this means the end of the respective session. If the data is stored in log files, this happens no later than after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of users are deleted or distorted in such a way that they can no longer be correlated with a client accessing the site.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the website’s operation. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) of the GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for attaining the purpose for which it was collected. The user's e-mail address will, therefore, be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

This website uses Google Analytics (Google Inc.) technology (www.google.de/analytics) to collect and store data for marketing and optimization purposes. This data can be used to create user profiles under a pseudonym. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the visitor's Internet browser. Cookies enable the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected with Google Analytics technologies will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website and will not be combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the explicit consent of the person in question. We would like to point out that on this website, the code <"gat._anonymizeIp();"> has been added to Google Analytics to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). If the anonymization is active, Google shortens IP addresses within Member States of the European Union, or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which means that no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly. In addition, users can prevent the collection by Google of data generated by cookies and relating to use of online offers as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. The personal data of users is only stored there. The data will not be passed on to third parties.
Our website uses the map service Google Maps from Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) via an API. In this context, it is necessary to store your IP address. The information thus obtained is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have no control over transmission of this data. Due to our justified interest in the attractive presentation of our online offers and in the ease with which the locations we have indicated on the website can be found, the choice of legal basis is consistent with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) of the GDPR.
