Privacy Policy

1. General information

1.1 What is personal data?
Personal data is data that reveals or can reveal the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data minimization. This means we limit the collection of personal data as far as possible.

1.2 How we deal with personal data
We exclusively use personal data for the purposes of drawing up contracts, content-related design, and performance or processing of the contractual relationship (Art. 6 1. (b) GDPR).

Beyond this, we only process personal data if we have received your consent (Art. 6 1. (a) GDPR) or if processing is necessary for our legitimate interests, and after a weighing up of interests shows that processing is not in conflict with your overriding interests, basic rights, or basic freedoms (Art. 6 1. (f) GDPR).

We may use external processors to process your personal data, however beyond this we do not pass on your personal data to third parties.

Strictly for contract performance, we transfer your data to the forwarding company contracted to deliver the goods only to the extent necessary for delivery of the goods ordered. For payment procedures, we pass on the necessary payment data to your bank and, if applicable, to the payment service provider you have selected.

Your personal data is processed exclusively within the EU, unless otherwise stated in the following.

1.3 Usage data
When you visit our website, general technical information is collected. This consists of the IP address, time and duration of your visit, browser type, and, if applicable, the website from which you accessed our website. For technical reasons, this usage data is saved to a logfile and can be used and stored for statistical analysis of our website. This usage data is not linked with your other personal data.

1.4 Storage duration
After the end of the purpose for which we collected your personal data, we only store your personal data for as long as statutory regulations (especially tax regulations) require.


2. Your rights

2.1 Right to information
You have the right to information from us about whether we process your personal data and, if this is the case, you have the right to information on this personal data and to the further information stated in Art. 15 GDPR.

2.2 Right to rectification
You have the right to rectification of inaccurate personal data and, in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, you have the right to demand that incomplete personal data is completed.

2.3 Right to erasure
You have the right to demand that we erase your personal data without delay. We are obliged to comply with this demand for erasure, especially where one of the following grounds applies:

  • • Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • • You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • • Your personal data has been unlawfully processed.

The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that processing your personal data is necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of our legal claims.

2.4 Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to have the processing of your personal data restricted by us where one of the following applies:

  • • You contest the accuracy of the data and we must verify its accuracy
  • • The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your personal data and request restriction of the use of your personal data instead
  • • We no longer need your personal data for processing purposes, but you still need it for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims
  • • You have objected to processing pending verification of whether the data controller’s legitimate grounds outweigh your own.

2.5 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit this data to another data controller without hindrance from the data controller to which the personal data has been provided, where the processing is based on consent or on a contract and is carried out by automated means.

2.6 Right to revocation
Where personal data is processed on the basis of consent you have granted previously, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time.

2.7 General information and right to object
If you exercise any of the above rights, this is always free of charge for you. If you have objections, you have the right to directly contact the supervisory authority responsible for us, i.e. the State Data Protection Officer.


3. Data security

3.1 Data security
All the data on our website is protected by technical and organizational means against loss, destruction, access, alteration, and dissemination.

3.2 Sessions and cookies
For the operation of our website we use cookies and server-based sessions to store data. We ensure that, without your explicit consent, no personal data from sessions or cookies is transferred and that cookies are only used where this is technically necessary for the website (e.g. protection against spam from the contact form, shopping cart function) and therefore a weighing up of interests shows that processing does not contravene your overriding interests (Art. 6 1. (f) GDPR).
After receiving your explicit consent, we use cookies to personalize content and ads, offer functions for social media, and analyze visits to our website. With your consent, we can pass on information about your use of our website to our partners for social media, advertising, and analysis. Our partners may combine this information with further data they already hold about you.

Below you can find the domain, the name, and the duration of the cookies we use exclusively on the basis of your consent:

4. Application process
You can apply to us electronically, by phone, or in writing. Naturally, we will only use your information for processing your application and we will not pass it on to third parties. If you want to send your application by email, please note that unencrypted emails are not protected from access by third parties. After the end of the application process, we erase your personal data immediately or after a maximum of 6 months, unless you have explicitly given your consent to a longer storage period, or if we conclude an employment contract with you. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 1. (a), (b), and (f) GDPR as well as § 26 BDSG.


5. Newsletter

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we use the data necessary for this or the data you provide separately to regularly send you our email newsletter, based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 1. (a) GDPR.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Either notify us using one of the contact options in the legal notice or simply click on the link in the newsletter. After you unsubscribe, we erase your email address unless you have explicitly consented to another use of the data, or we reserve the right to continue to use the data in a way that is legally permitted and explained in this privacy notice.

We use the following social media platforms for presentation of and communication about our company (we explicitly refer to the data protection declarations and opt-out options linked below).

Privacy policy: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy/

These social media platforms may process personal data outside the EU. If you want to know more, please see the privacy policies on the social media platforms.
Based on your user behavior and your interests and actions derived from it, the individual social media platforms may be able to compile user profiles and store cookies on your computer which store your user behavior. If you have an account with the specific social media platform and are logged in, the platform can even store your user behavior from any device. Your user profile can be used e.g. to show you ads calculated to be tailored to your interests.

We process your personal data exclusively for communication with you via the selected social media platform and to optimize our website. We make sure this does not affect any of your interests which override our legitimate interest (Art. 6 1. (f) GDPR). If you have already given the operator of the specific social media platform your effective consent to corresponding data processing, we process your personal data also on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 1. (a) GDPR).


7. Third-party services

7.1 Social media links

We have our own social media sites on the third-party platforms linked to this website. You can use these links to jump to the websites of the various third-party providers (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). To prevent unnecessary data transfer, we recommend that you log out of the third-party service before using one of these links so that merely using the link does not enable the third party to create a user profile of you.

7.2 YouTube
This website and the integrated offers contain embedded YouTube videos. This enables a connection to YouTube and the videos available there. YouTube is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (Google). The use of the YouTube videos is only possible with your consent (Art. 6 1. (a) GDPR). Please see YouTube’s privacy policy to find out the purpose and scope of data collection and use by Google as well as your rights and setting options for your protection as a customer of YouTube. You can find these at: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy/.

7.3 Google AdSense
This website uses Google AdSense, a service for the integration of adverts from Google. AdSense is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (Google). Google AdSense uses cookies, which are small text files saved on your computer that enable analysis of your use of the website. Google AdSense also uses web beacons. Web beacons are used to analyze visitor traffic and other information. The information generated by the cookies and web beacons on your use of this website and the delivery of advertising formats is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This also includes the IP address. Google can pass on this information to its contractual partners. A weighing of interests shows that the processing which is technically necessary for display of the ads does not infringe your rights and also that your rights are not overriding (Art. 6 1. (f) GDPR). This is primarily because Google does not connect your IP address with your other stored data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to fully use all of the website functions.

7.3.1 Google Ads Conversion
We use Google Ads Conversion (operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), in order to present our offers by means of adverts (Google Ads) on external websites. Google delivers these ads via ad servers. This works using ad server cookies which apply certain parameters to measure success, such as the number of views or clicks by users. If you access our website through a Google ad, Google Ads places a cookie on your computer. Normally, these cookies become inoperative after 30 days and are not intended to be used for personal identification. As a rule, these cookies store analysis values in the form of the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), and opt-out information. If you visit our website as a result of this kind of ad and the cookie on your computer is still operative, we and Google can recognize that you clicked on the advertisement and were forwarded to this page. Each Ads customer gets its own cookie. Consequently, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Ads customers. We do not collect or process personal data from these ads. We merely receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can recognize which of the ads we use are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the ads. In particular, we cannot identify users based on this information. Due to the marketing tools implemented, your browser automatically creates a direct connection with the Google server. We do not have any influence over the scope and further use of the data which Google collects through this tool. Therefore we can only inform you that, through this service, Google is able to link your visit to our website to your Google account if you are logged in to your Google account. Furthermore, irrespective of whether you have a Google user account, Google can find and store your IP address. You can find the Google privacy policy here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy

7.3.2 Google Ads Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The purpose of the function is to present interest-based ads to the users of the website within the Google advertising network. A cookie is saved in the website user’s browser which enables the tool to recognize the user in pseudonymized form when they access websites in the Google advertising network. On these websites, users can be shown ads related to content they have previously accessed on other websites that use the Google remarketing function. Google states that it does not collect any personal data in this process. If you do not agree to use of the remarketing function from Google, you can opt out by altering the relevant settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can opt out of the use of cookies for personalized advertising via the Network Advertising Initiative by following the instructions at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

You can find the Google privacy policy here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy

7.4 Google Tag Manager
This website also uses Google Tag Manager (operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland). The service enables website tag administration via an interface. This Google tool merely implements tags. To do this, it uses no cookies, and no personal data is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags which may in turn collect data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If tag deactivation has been implemented at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags in as far as they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
