If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the data you provide will be processed by us to answer your questions. If the storage of the data is no longer necessary, we delete the transmitted data or limit its processing. This is dependent on legal retention obligations.
For our website, we use Google Analytics, a tracking tool from Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies” (see above under “Cookies”), which are saved on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information collected in this way on your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases will the entire address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your Internet browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs is automatically deleted after 14 months. Data for which the retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. You can find more information on data protection at https://policies.google.com/privacy.
What’s more, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) for Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Google Campaign Manager / DoubleClick
Our website uses Google Campaign Manager / DoubleClick, a service from Google, LLC, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), cf. https://policies.google.com/privacy. This is how the Google ads are controlled and managed. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google will save a cookie on your computer.
Google can then recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. The multiple displaying of a similar advertisement is prevented. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Google customers. These cookies lose their validity after 1 year and are not used for personal identification. Using conversion statistics, customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were transferred to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. The saving of a cookie can be rejected using browser settings. This can cause the website’s functions to be limited.
We use embedded YouTube videos on our website. YouTube is a service from YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (“YouTube”). When you visit a page with an embedded YouTube video, a connection is established with the YouTube servers.
We collect and process your personal data exclusively on a legal basis, including – in the case of a European reference – in particular on the basis of the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR).
If we obtain your consent for processing operations for specific processing purposes, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.
If we need your personal data in order to fulfil a contract concluded with you (e.g. delivery of goods, provision of services), processing is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. This also applies to directly related processes such as the processing of enquiries concerning our products, services or prices.
If we process personal data from you based on legal obligations, this takes place on the basis of Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.
If we need your personal data in order to protect your vital interests or those of another natural person, processing is based on Art. 6(1)(d) GDPR.
Irrespective of the aforementioned legal bases, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest on our part or on the part of a third party, provided that this is not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms.
Storage duration and erasure of data
We delete or block personal data in accordance with legal requirements as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes stated here or a legally prescribed retention period expires.
We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- You have granted your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR,
- This is legally permitted and required for the performance of a contract with you or to take steps prior to entering into a contract in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR,
- A legal obligation exists for the sharing of data in accordance with Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR,
- We are legally obliged to transfer data to state authorities, e.g. tax authorities, social security institutions, health insurance companies, supervisory authorities and law enforcement agencies,

- In accordance with Art. 28 GDPR, we use external service providers, called processors, who are obliged to handle your data with care.
When transferring data to external parties in third countries, i.e. outside the EU/EEA, we ensure that these parties handle your personal data with the same care as they would within the EU/EEA.
We only transfer personal data to third countries where the EU Commission has confirmed an adequate level of protection or where we ensure the careful handling of personal data through contractual agreements or other appropriate guarantees.
