Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement
We are happy about your interest in our website. We attach great importance to protecting your privacy. Below please find detailed information on how we handle your data.

1. Access data and Hosting
You may visit our website without providing any personal information. Whenever our website is accessed, the web server merely stores a server log file, which includes, for instance, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the data volume transmitted and the requesting provider (access data) and which documents the request.

These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of our website and improving our offer. This serves our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer, which have been found to be overriding in a balancing test. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to our website.

Hosting services provided by a third party
In the context of order processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides website hosting and presentation services. This serves our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer, which have been found to be overriding in a balancing test. All data that are collected as described below in the context of the use of this website or in forms provided for this purpose are processed on the latter’s servers. Data are processed on our servers only within the scope outlined here.
This service provider is based in a Member State of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

2. Collection and use of data to process contact requests
We collect personal data if you let us know these data voluntarily when making contact (e.g. by contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked accordingly, as we need these data to process your contact request and you will not be able to send your contact request without providing these data. The respective entry forms show you which data is collected. We use the data provided by you to process your requests. After your request has been fully processed, your data will be restricted for further processing and be deleted after the retention period unless you have expressly consented to the continued use of your data or we have reserved the right to make continued use of the data to the extent this is permissible by law and we inform you in this statement. Erasure of your data is possible at any time and may be requested by sending a message to the contact provided below.

3. E-mail newsletter
E-mail advertising with registration to newsletter
When you register for our newsletter, we use the data required for this purpose or provided by you separately to regularly send you our e-mail newsletter based on your consent. For your registration, we need an e-mail address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and agree to receiving the newsletter.
To ensure that you consent to us sending the newsletter, we use the double opt-in procedure, under which the potential recipient is entered in a mailing list. The user then receives a confirmation e-mail that gives them the possibility to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner. The address will actively be added to the mailing list only if such confirmation is made. We will use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and offerings. 

The newsletter is sent by a service provider in the context of order processing on our behalf. Your e-mail address is passed on to this service provider for this purpose. The service provider is based in a Member State of the European Union or the European Economic Area.
Newsletter2Go is used as the newsletter software. In this context, your data are transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is not allowed to sell your data or to use them for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German certified provider which has been chosen in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.
For more information, see https://www.newsletter2go.co.uk/information-for-newsletter-recipients

You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, either by sending a message to the contact provided below or via the respective link in the newsletter. After you have unsubscribed, we will delete your e-mail address unless you have expressly consented to the continued use of your data or we have reserved the right to make continued use of the data to the extent this is permissible by law and we inform you in this statement.
As the data protection measures are subject to constant technical innovations, we ask you to regularly check our data protection measures by reading our privacy statement.

Use of Matomo for web analysis

For the purpose of web page analysis, this website uses the Matomo web analysis software (https://matomo.org), a service provided by InnoCraft Ltd., which automatically collects and stores data when our website is visited to generate user profiles using pseudonyms. This serves our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer, which have been found to be overriding in a balancing test. Cookies may be used for this purpose. The pseudonymised user profiles will not be associated with other personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym without the latter’s express consent, which is to be given separately.
All data which are processed in the context of the web page analysis described above are processed on our servers.
You may object to the collection and storage of data at any time with effect for the future by following the instructions provided below.
Objection:

After you have objected, an opt-out cookie will be set on your device. If you delete your cookies, you must click on the link again.

Right to object
If we process personal data as described above to protect our legitimate interests which have been found to be overriding in a balancing test, you may object to such data processing with effect for the future. If the data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you may exercise this right at any time as described above. If the data are processed for other purposes, you have a right to object only for reasons that arise from your special situation.

After you have exercised your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

This does not apply if the data are processed for direct marketing purposes. In this case, we will no longer process your data for this purpose.
