We will collect, process and save your personal data solely for the purpose of processing requests and, when necessary, for processing orders / contracts.

Whilst your personal data is being collected, saved and processed, it is protected by technical and organisational measures so that it cannot be accessed by third parties. We do not pass on this data without your consent. However, when communicating by email, telephone or fax, we cannot guarantee complete data security, which is why we recommend that you send us any information requiring a high level of confidentiality by mail.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, when your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

6. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses web analysis service Google Analytics, which is provided is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics also uses "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your usage of the website. The information generated by the “cookies” about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. However, due to the activation of the IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within the European Union or in other Contracting States of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and abbreviated 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 the website activities and to provide other services related to the website usage and the Internet usage against the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being saved by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully utilise all the functions on this website. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing Google's data (including your IP address) related to your use of the Website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install:
In addition to or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can block Google Analytics tracking on our pages by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie is installed on your device. This will prevent the Google Analytics collection for this site and for this browser as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your information from being collected on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics.
We have concluded a contract with Google for order 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 Google Analytics from collecting your data as described under "Objection to data collection".
Data stored by Google at the user and event level that is linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymised or deleted after 50 months. Details can be found under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en
Google Analytics Re-marketing
Our sites use Google Analytics Re-marketing features in conjunction with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This feature allows Google Analytics Re-marketing to link advertising target groups with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google Account for this purpose. Therefore, the same personalised advertising messages can be displayed on every device on which you log in with your Google Account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target audiences for cross-device advertising.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device re-marketing/targeting by opting out of personalised advertising in your Google Account by following this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The data collected in your Google Account will only be aggregated on the basis of your consent, which you may give or revoke to Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). In the case of data collection processes that are not consolidated in your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the consolidation), the data collection is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").
As part of Google AdWords, we use what is known as conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser places on the user's computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords customer websites. The information collected from the Conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. Customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt out of this use by easily turning off the Google Conversion Tracking cookie in your Internet browser under User Preferences. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of "conversion cookies" and the use of this tracking tool are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
You can set your browser to notify your computer when cookies are set, to permit cookies only in individual cases, to refuse or to accept cookies in certain cases, as well as to enable automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Our website uses the visitor action pixel of Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") to measure conversion.
This allows us to track the behaviour of site visitors after they are redirected to the provider's Web site by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and to optimise future advertising efforts.
The data collected is anonymous to us as the operator of this website and we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines. This may allow Facebook to serve advertisements on Facebook pages and outside Facebook. This use of data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.
The use of Facebook pixels is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in effective advertising measures, this includes social media.
You will find further information on the protection of your privacy in the Facebook data protection information: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
You can also deactivate the re-marketing function "Custom Audiences" in the Settings for Advertisements section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You must be logged in to Facebook to do this.
If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable Facebook's usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/

You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
In addition, YouTube may store various cookies on your device after you start a video. YouTube can use these cookies to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve usability and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
If necessary, after the start of a YouTube video, further data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no control.
