We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible body
The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
Responsible party is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Unless a specific storage period is specified in this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for the data processing no longer applies. If you make a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. tax or commercial retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion takes place after these reasons no longer apply.
Note on data transfer to the USA
among other things, our website includes tools from companies based in the usa. if these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the us servers of the respective companies. we would like to point out that the usa is not a secure third country in the sense of eu data protection law. usa companies are obliged to release personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. it cannot therefore be ruled out that usa authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on usa servers for monitoring purposes. we have no influence on these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. you can revoke any consent you have already given at any time. the legality of the data processing carried out up to revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and against direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If the data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. E or F GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons that arise from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims ( Objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data are processed in order to operate direct mail, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
Right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the DPAs, the persons concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place where the alleged infringement is committed, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only take place as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http: //" to "https: //" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to correct or delete this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to limit processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this, and for the duration of the verification you have the right to request that we limit the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is carried out unlawfully, you may request that the data processing be limited instead of deleted.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you do need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that we limit the processing of your personal data instead of deleting it.
- If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Paragraph 1 DSGVO, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours, and as long as it is not yet clear whose interests outweigh ours, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data - apart from their storage - may only be allowed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest processed by the European Union or a member state.

5. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour of website visitors. In doing so, the website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of stay, operating systems used and the origin of the user. Google may combine this data in a profile that is assigned to the respective user or his terminal device.
Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the user to be recognized for the purpose of analyzing user behavior (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising. If consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing will be carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; consent may be revoked at any time.
Data transmission to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission, details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent Google from collecting and processing your information by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
We have concluded an order processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
