Privacy Policy

General Information

We take the protection of personal data and, therefore, also your privacy very seriously. At this point we would like to explain what it means for you when you use our personalised services and how we protect your data. In order to guarantee the greatest possible protection of your privacy, of course, we comply with all legal regulations on data protection.

Personal data

Personal data is information about your identity. This includes information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address. It is not necessary for you to disclose personal data in order to use our website. In certain cases, however, we need your name and address and other information so that we can provide the requested services.

The same applies, for example, to the sending of information material and goods ordered or to the answering of individual questions. When the disclosure of personal data is necessary, we will point it out to you. In addition, we only store and process data that you provide to us voluntarily or automatically. As far as we ask you for further data, it is voluntary information. The processing of personal data takes place exclusively for the fulfilment of the requested offer and for the protection of our own justified business interests.

Our website is encrypted with a 256-bit key, TLS 1.2. Encryption makes it difficult for unauthorized persons to view information transferred between computers. Therefore, it is unlikely that anyone read the information when it was transmitted over the Internet.

Purpose of personal data

We use the personal data you provide to answer your inquiries, process your orders or provide you access to certain information or offers. We will neither sell your personal data to third parties nor market it in any other way.

Purpose-related use

We will collect, process and use the personal data you provide online only for the purposes disclosed to you. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your necessary consent. Personal data is only collected and transmitted to government institutions and authorities entitled to receive information in accordance with the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are bound to secrecy and compliance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act.

Non-personal data collected automatically

When using our websites, the following data is stored for organizational and technical reasons: the names of the pages accessed, the browser and operating system used, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files and your IP address. We evaluate this technical data anonymously and for statistical purposes only in order to be able to continuously optimize our Internet presence and make our Internet offerings even more attractive. This anonymous data is stored separately from personal information on secure systems and do not allow any conclusions on an individual person. Your personal data and your privacy are therefore protected at any time.


Persons under the age of 16 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and young people, do not collect them and do not pass them on to third parties.


If you use external links that are offered as part of our websites, this data protection declaration does not extend to these links. When we provide links, we endeavour to ensure that they also comply with our data protection and security standards. However, we have no influence on
