3. Collection and Use of Your Data

The scope and method of collection and use of your data differs depending on whether you visit our website simply for the purpose of obtaining information or, if you also use the services offered on the website:

a) Use for Obtaining Information

If you visit our website so-called usage data will be temporarily stored on our webserver for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data record consists of

  • the page from which the data was requested,
  • the name of the data,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the quantity of data transferred,
  • the access status (data transferred, data not found),
  • a description of the type of web browser used,
  • the IP address of the computer used for making the enquiry in an abbreviated form so that no connection with any particular person can be established.

Log data are stored only in an anonymised form.

b) Use for Products or Services

Insofar as you want to use any of the services offered on our website such as ordering our newsletter, it will be necessary to provide further data. These data are those necessary in each case to process a request, such as your personal address for the sending of advertising material by post.

Further information may be given by you on a voluntary basis and this is identified as such.

The collection and use of your data is for the provision of the requested services such as, for example, the request for a newsletter tailored your interests. The legal basis for this is Art.6 s.1a) GDPR.

c) Data Transfer to Third Parties

Your data will be transferred to service providers supporting us for the above named purpose and of course, we have selected these service providers with due care. These may be technical service providers or service providers supporting us with shipping.

Otherwise, any transfer of your data to third parties will take place only if this is required by law.

d) Data Transfer to Third Countries

We may transfer some personal data to third countries outside the EU. We have exercised due care to ensure an appropriate level of data protection in this situation.

4. Consent Under Data Protection Law

In order to provide the services you wish we would like to develop a website tailored to your interests – of course, only insofar as you expressly agree to such – as well as to provide you with emails from time to time (in the form of our newsletter) based on your data and concerning interesting new developments and information about our company and our products and services. We would also like to use your data for any necessary evaluations as well as market research purposes. The legal basis for this is Art.6 s.1a) GDPR.

If you want to withdraw your consent, we will cease processing the respective data (see also no.9 Revocation and Objection Rights).

5. Newsletter

So that you are able to register for our email newsletter service, we will require, in addition to your consent under data protection law, at least your email address to which the newsletter is to be sent. Any other details are voluntary and will be used to tailor the newsletter to your personal requirements as well as for the purposes of clarifying any questions to your email address. The legal basis for this is Art.6 s.1a) GDPR.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending out the newsletter, i.e. we will send you the newsletter only if your registration is confirmed first of all by way of a link contained in a confirmation email sent to your email address for this purpose. This is to ensure that only you personally, as the owner of the email address, are able to register for a newsletter. Your confirmation must follow promptly after the receipt of the confirmation email or otherwise the newsletter registration will be automatically erased from our data bank.

You may cancel a subscribed newsletter at any time. You can do this by either a simple email addressed to or you can cancel by using the link at the end of the newsletter. If you withdraw your consent, we will cease processing the respective data.

We have a legitimate interest in the storing of cookies to ensure that no technical problems arise and in order to optimise the availability of our services.

These cookies are erased as soon as your browser session is completed.

Whether cookies are used and called-up can be determined by you through the set-up of your browser.

7. Google Analytics

It is important to us that our website can be presented in the best possible and attractive manner for our visitors. In this regard it is necessary that we know which parts of the website are well received.

The information provided by cookies concerning your use of this website are generally transferred to and stored on a server of Google in the United States. Through the IP anonymisation on this website your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within a member state of the European Union or in another signatory state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

8. Google AdWords

We use the online advertising programme "Google AdWords" on our website as well as related conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). If you click on any advertisements placed by Google a cookie will be placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have a limited validity of 30 days but do not contain any information by which the user could be personally identified because there is an anonymisation of the IP address. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will detect that you have clicked on the advertisement and were directed to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, there is no possibility for cookies being able to be tracked from the websites of AdWords customers.

Information obtained with the help of conversion cookies serves to provide conversion statistics. Thereby, we are able to see the total number of visitors who have clicked on our advertisement and who have been redirected to the page with a conversion tracking tag. We do not, however, receive any information by which the user could be personally identified. Processing is on the basis of Art.6 s.1f) GDPR and results from a legitimate interest in target-based advertisement and an analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising.

On the basis of Art.6 s.1f) GDPR you have the right to object for reasons related to your particular situation at any time to the processing of personal data related to you.

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can block this at any time if you deactivate the cookies of Google conversion tracking on your internet browser under the user set-up. We should advise you, however, that in such case it is possible that all the functions of this website will not work to the full extent. You will then also not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. In addition, you can deactivate the settings for advertising with Google for your personal advertising. You will find information on this under

Further, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third parties in that you call-up the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative under and implement the opt-out information contained therein.
