The operators of these pages are very serious about the protection of your personal data. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with data protection regulations as well as with this privacy policy.

In general, it is possible to use this website without specifying personal information. Where personal data (such as your name, address or e-mail address) is recorded on our site, this information is always, wherever possible, provided on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express permission.

Please note that data transmission via the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) is subject to security gaps. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies

Our websites use cookies at various points. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. These are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies will remain on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser during your next visit.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are notified when cookies are used, you can allow cookies only in individual cases, only accept cookies in certain cases or generally prevent them and activate automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is exited. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server enquiry

This data cannot be allocated to a specific person. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data afterwards if concrete indications of illegal use become known to us.

Order data processing
We have signed a contract with Google about the processing of order information and we fully implement the strict specifications of the German Data Protection Authority when using Google Analytics.

IP anonymisation
On this website, we use the “Activation of IP anonymisation” function. This means your IP address is shortened by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the agreement across the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to the Google server in the US and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website, to create reports about website activities and to provide to the website operator other services associated with website use and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged by Google with other data.

YouTube

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The sites are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit one of our pages which is equipped with the YouTube plugin, a connection with the YouTube servers will be established. This will tell the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to allocate your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by signing out of your YouTube account.

Further information on the use of user data can be found in YouTube’s data protection policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

SSL encryption

For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection when the address bar of your browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in the browser bar.

If SSL encryption is activated, data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

Right to disclosure, deletion and blocking

You have the right at any time to obtain information about the personal data stored about you free of charge, along with its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correct, block or delete this data. Any questions regarding this or any other questions regarding personal data can be directed to us at any time at the address specified in the legal information.

Prohibition of advertising e-mails

The use of contact details published within the framework of the statutory legal notice for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information is herewith expressly prohibited. Should the operators of the sites receive unsolicited promotional material, such as spam e-mails, they expressively reserve the right to take legal action.
