Server data

For tech­ni­cal rea­sons, the fol­low­ing data sent by your inter­net browser to us or to our server provider will be col­lected, espe­cially to ensure a secure and stable web­site: These server log files record the type and ver­sion of your browser, oper­at­ing system, the web­site from which you came (refer­rer URL), the web­pages on our site vis­ited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you vis­ited our site.

The data thus col­lected will be tem­porar­ily stored, but not in asso­ci­a­tion with any other of your data.

The basis for this stor­age is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legit­i­mate inter­est lies in the improve­ment, sta­bil­ity, func­tion­al­ity, and secu­rity of our website.

The data will be deleted within no more than seven days, unless con­tin­ued stor­age is required for evi­den­tiary pur­poses. In which case, all or part of the data will be excluded from dele­tion until the inves­ti­ga­tion of the rel­e­vant inci­dent is finally resolved.

Cook­ies

a) Ses­sion cookies

We use cook­ies on our web­site. Cook­ies are small text files or other stor­age tech­nolo­gies stored on your com­puter by your browser. These cook­ies process cer­tain spe­cific infor­ma­tion about you, such as your browser, loca­tion data, or IP address.

This pro­cess­ing makes our web­site more user-friendly, effi­cient, and secure, allow­ing us, for exam­ple, to dis­play our web­site in dif­fer­ent lan­guages or to offer a shop­ping cart function.

The legal basis for such pro­cess­ing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, inso­far as these cook­ies are used to col­lect data to ini­ti­ate or process con­trac­tual relationships.

If the pro­cess­ing does not serve to ini­ti­ate or process a con­tract, our legit­i­mate inter­est lies in improv­ing the func­tion­al­ity of our web­site. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

When you close your browser, these ses­sion cook­ies are deleted.

b) Third-party cookies

If nec­es­sary, our web­site may also use cook­ies from com­pa­nies with whom we coop­er­ate for the pur­pose of adver­tis­ing, ana­lyz­ing, or improv­ing the fea­tures of our website.

Please refer to the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion for details, in par­tic­u­lar for the legal basis and pur­pose of such third-party col­lec­tion and pro­cess­ing of data col­lected through cookies.

c) Dis­abling cookies

You can refuse the use of cook­ies by chang­ing the set­tings on your browser. Like­wise, you can use the browser to delete cook­ies that have already been stored. How­ever, the steps and mea­sures required vary, depend­ing on the browser you use. If you have any ques­tions, please use the help func­tion or con­sult the doc­u­men­ta­tion for your browser or con­tact its maker for sup­port. Browser set­tings cannot pre­vent so-called flash cook­ies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the set­ting of your Flash player. The steps and mea­sures required for this also depend on the Flash player you are using. If you have any ques­tions, please use the help func­tion or con­sult the doc­u­men­ta­tion for your Flash player or con­tact its maker for support.

If you pre­vent or restrict the instal­la­tion of cook­ies, not all of the func­tions on our site may be fully usable.

Cookie Man­ager

To obtain con­sent for the use of tech­ni­cally unnec­es­sary cook­ies on the web­site, the provider uses a cookie manager.

When the web­site is called up, a cookie with the set­tings infor­ma­tion is stored on the end device of the user so that the request for con­sent does not have to be made on a sub­se­quent visit.

The cookie is required to obtain legally com­pli­ant user consent.

You can pre­vent cook­ies from being installed by adjust­ing the set­tings on your inter­net browser.

Newslet­ter

If you reg­is­ter for our free newslet­ter, the data requested from you for this pur­pose, i.e. your email address and, option­ally, your name and address, will be sent to us. We also store the IP address of your com­puter and the date and time of your reg­is­tra­tion. During the reg­is­tra­tion process, we will obtain your con­sent to receive this newslet­ter and the type of con­tent it will offer, with ref­er­ence made to this pri­vacy policy. The data col­lected will be used exclu­sively to send the newslet­ter and will not be passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

You may revoke your prior con­sent to receive this newslet­ter under Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR with future effect. All you have to do is inform us that you are revok­ing your con­sent or click on the unsub­scribe link con­tained in each newsletter.

Con­tact

If you con­tact us via email or the con­tact form, the data you pro­vide will be used for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing your request. We must have this data in order to process and answer your inquiry; oth­er­wise we will not be able to answer it in full or at all.

The legal basis for this data pro­cess­ing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Your data will be deleted once we have fully answered your inquiry and there is no fur­ther legal oblig­a­tion to store your data, such as if an order or con­tract resulted therefrom.

Social media links via graphics

We also inte­grate the fol­low­ing social media sites into our web­site. The inte­gra­tion takes place via a linked graphic of the respec­tive site. The use of these graph­ics stored on our own servers pre­vents the auto­matic con­nec­tion to the servers of these net­works for their dis­play. Only by click­ing on the cor­re­spond­ing graphic will you be for­warded to the ser­vice of the respec­tive social network.

Once you click, that net­work may record infor­ma­tion about you and your visit to our site. It cannot be ruled out that such data will be processed in the United States.

Ini­tially, this data includes such things as your IP address, the date and time of your visit, and the page vis­ited. If you are logged into your user account on that net­work, how­ever, the net­work oper­a­tor might assign the infor­ma­tion col­lected about your visit to our site to your per­sonal account. If you inter­act by click­ing Like, Share, etc., this infor­ma­tion can be stored your per­sonal user account and pos­si­bly posted on the respec­tive net­work. To pre­vent this, you need to log out of your social media account before click­ing on the graphic. The var­i­ous social media net­works also offer set­tings that you can con­fig­ure accordingly.

The fol­low­ing social net­works are inte­grated into our site by linked graphics:
