Request by email, telephone or fax

If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all resulting personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on article 6, section 1 (b) of the GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (article 6, section 1 of the GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (article 6, section 1 of the GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing the enquiries sent to us.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular, statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on article 6, section 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website - for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of article 6, section 1 (f) of GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.

IP Anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Order data processing

We have signed an order data processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics
This website uses the demographic characteristics function from Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the "Objection to data collection" section.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion-Tracking
This website also employs the features: Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (hereinafter referred to as ‘Google’).

Within the scope of Google ‘AdWords’, we employ the so-called ‘conversion tracking’ feature. Once you click on an advert. placed by Google, a cookie will be set for the ‘conversion tracking’ feature. Cookies as previously described, are small text files, which are downloaded to the internet browser program of the computer or messaging device of the user. Such cookies lose their validity after 30 days, but do not serve for identification of the visitor. Once a use visits certain pages of our website, and the cookie has not yet expired, then Google and ourselves can recognise that the visitor has clicked on the advert and has been relayed to that particular website page.

Each Google ‘AdWords’ customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be traced via the websites of ‘AdWords’ customers. The information collected with the assistance of the conversion cookie serves amalgamating conversion statistics for those ‘AdWords’ customers, who have decided to employ the conversion tracking feature. The customers are informed of the total number of users, who have clicked on their advert., and who have been relayed to a website page equipped with a conversion tracking ‘tag’. Such customers however obtain no information on the personal identity of the user. When our website visitors do not wish to participate in such conversion tracking activities, they can discontinue the function by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in their internet browser program on the computer. Then they will no longer be adopted into the conversion tracking statistics.

The saving and storage of ‘conversion cookies’ is effected on the basis of Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. f of the forementioned ‘DSGVO’-GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation. The website operators however have a justified interest in an analysis of their visitor behaviour, in order to be able to optimise their website appearance as also their advertising activities.

You can obtain more information on the Google ‘AdWords’ and Google ‘Conversion Tracking’ features in the data protection regulations of Google:

https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

Customers and visitors can adjust settings in their internet browser program on their computers and messaging devices, to receive information concerning the setting of cookies and only permit cookies in individual cases. They can also determine the acceptance of cookies for certain eventualities, or they can generally exclude their downloading, as well as activate the deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
