Data Protection Statement


Your personal data (e.g. title, name, address, e-mail, phone number, bank details, credit card number) are only processed by us in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law. The following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data. This Data Protection Statement only applies to our websites. If you are forwarded to other sites via links on our pages, please inform yourself about how they handle your data.

Inventory data

(1) Your personal data, as well as the data necessary for establishing, designing the content of or modifying a contractual relationship (inventory data) is used exclusively for contract processing. This means that, for example, for the provisions of the products your name and address must be sent to the company delivering the goods.

(2) Without your express consent or without a statutory basis your personal data will not be forwarded to third parties outside the contractual processing. After the contractual processing is complete, your data will be blocked from further use. After the completion of tax and business law requirements this data will be deleted where you have not given express consent to its further use.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, create reports on website activities for the operator of the site and deliver services associated with the use of the website and use of the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where third parties process this data on behalf of Google. In no case will Google connect your IP address with other Google data.

By using this website you declare that you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the type and manner described above and for the purpose stated above.

We draw your attention to the fact that on this website Google Analytics has been enhanced with the code “gat._anonymizeIP();” to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Web analysis with Visable

This website uses products and services provided by Visable GmbH (www.visable.com) for analysis and marketing purposes. This is done using pixel tracking technology and cookies to collect, process and store data to create a user profile than is at least pseudonymised and, where possible and useful, fully anonymised. The data collected, that initially can still contain personal data, is sent to Visable or is collected directly by Visable and used to create the above-mentioned use profile there. Personal identification of visitors to this website does not take place and no other personal data is combined with the user profiles. If IP addresses are identified as personal, they are deleted immediately. You can revoke permission for the processing described at any time with future effect: Exclude from tracking (note: the link sets a 1st-party cookie to opt out).
