Personal information

Personal information is information about you. It includes name, address and email address. You are not required to give any personal information to access our web site. In some cases we will require your name and address and additional information to be able to offer the desired service.

The same applies if we supply you with information at your request or if we respond to your questions. We will always inform you in such cases. Otherwise we will only save information that you automatically or freely provide.

If you make use of our services, we generally only collect the information absolutely necessary to provide our services. We may request additional information, which may be supplied voluntarily. If we process personal information, this is to be able to offer our services or for our business purposes.


Data saved automatically


Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and save information in so-called server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. These are:

  • Date and time of the request

  • Name of the file requested

  • Page from which the file was requested

  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)

  • Web browser and operating system used

  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer

  • Data quantity transferred

There is no combination of this data with other data sources. Processing is done in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 let. f GDPR based on our justified interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
For reasons of technical security, especially to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we save this data briefly. No conclusion about individual people is possible using this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by abbreviating the IP address on the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to make reference to individual users. The data is also processed for statistical purposes in anonymized form; there is no comparison with other data stocks or forwarding to third parties, even in extract. Only in the course of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is there a description of the number of page calls.



If you access our web sites, we may save information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that an Internet server sends to your browser and are saved on your hard disk.

Legal basis for the use of cookies is the justified interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 let. f GDPR.

Matomo (formerly PIWIK) (web analysis service)

We use the web analysis service Matomo on our website. Matomo uses cookies for this analysis. Cookies are small text files, which are saved on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by the cookies, such as time, location and frequency of your access to the website, including your IP address, is sent to our PIWIK server in the USA and saved there. Your IP address will be anonymized during this process, so that you as a user remain anonymous to us.

YouTube in advanced data privacy mode

We use the provider YouTube to incorporate videos. The videos were embedded in advanced data privacy mode. Like most websites, however, YouTube also uses cookies to collect information about visitors to its Internet page. YouTube uses these, among other things, to collect video statistics, to prevent deception and to improve user-friendliness. This also causes the establishment of a connection with the Google DoubleClick network. When you start the video, this could trigger additional data processing processes. We have no influence over this. For more information about data privacy at YouTube, see their data privacy declaration:


Customer account

For each customer who registers appropriately, we set up a password-protected, direct access to the stock of data that we store (customer account). Here, you can view data about your completed, open and recently sent orders and manage your address data, bank details and newsletter. You are obliged to treat your personal access data confidentially and not to make it available to any unauthorized third parties. We assume no liability for misused passwords unless we were responsible for the misuse.
With the "remain logged in" function, we would like to make visiting our web pages as easy as possible. This function allows you to use our services without having to log in again each time. For security reasons, however, you will be asked to enter your password if, for example, you are changing your personal data or you would like to place an order. We recommend that you do not use this function if the computer is used by several users. We would like to point out that the "remain logged in" function is not available if you use a setting that automatically deletes saved cookies after each session.



We have implemented technical and administrative measures to protect your personal information from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees and service providers are subject to the applicable privacy laws.

All personal information that we collect and process is encrypted before it is transferred. This means that your information cannot be misused by third parties. Our security precautions are subject to a continuous improvement process and our privacy statements are continuously revised. Please ensure that you have the latest version.


Rights of those affected

You always have a right to information about, the correction, deletion or restriction of processing of your saved data, a right of objection to the processing and a right to data transmission and to complaint according to the prerequisites of the data privacy law.


Right to information:

You can request information from us about whether and to what extent we process your data.


Right to correction:

If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request at any time that we correct or complete it.


Right to deletion:

You can request that we delete your data, insofar as we are processing it illegally or we are intervening in your justified privacy interests. Please note that there can be reasons that speak against an immediate deletion, e.g. in case of legally regulated retention requirements.

Depending on the perception of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as no legal-business or legal retention requirement opposes this.


Right to restriction of processing:

You can request that we restrict the processing of your data if

  • You dispute the correctness of the data and in particular, for a duration that allows us to check the correctness of the data.

  • The processing of the data is illegal, but you decline deletion and instead request a restriction of data use

  • We do not require the data for the intended purpose, but you need this data to press or defend against legal claims or

  • You have objected to the processing of the data.


Right to data transmission:

You can request that we provide you with your data, with which you have provided us, in a structured, common and machine-readable format and that you can transfer this data to another responsible authority without interference from us insofar as

  • we are processing this data based on revocable permission you have granted or for the fulfillment of a contract between us and

  • this processing is done using automated processes.

If technically feasible, you can request that we transmit your data directly to another responsible authority.


Right of objection:

If we are processing your data for a justified interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply for a profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling privacy reasons for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing serves the pressing, exercise or defense of legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct advertising at any time without specifying reasons.


Right to complain:

If you are of the opinion that with the processing of your data we are violating German or European data privacy law, we ask you to make contact with us in order to clarify questions. Of course you also have the right to contact responsible authorities, the local authority for data privacy supervision.

Insofar as you want to press legal claims against us, please contact our data privacy officer. In case of doubt, we will request additional information to confirm your identity.
