Cookies

The website uses so-called cookies in some cases. Cookies cause no damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies help to make our content safer, more user-friendly and more effective. Cookies are small text files that are saved on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can configure your browser so that you are informed when cookies are saved and allow cookies only on an individual basis, reject the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may limit some functions of this website.

Cookies that are required for execution of the electronic communication procedure or for provision of certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping basket), are stored on the basis of article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the saving of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis of your surfing behavior) are saved, they are treated separately in this data privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically acquires and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. They include:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server query
  • IP address

This information will not be merged with other data sources.

The basis for the data processing is article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data for fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us inquiries by means of a contact form, we will save your information from the inquiry form, including the contact data provided by you for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for possible follow-up inquiries. We do not pass on this information without your permission.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form therefore takes place solely on the basis of your permission (article 6, paragraph 1, letter a of the GDPR). You can revoke this permission at any time. An informal e-mail message addressed to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing procedures up until the time of revocation is not affected by the revocation.

We retain the data entered by you in the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your permission for storing the data or the purpose of the data storage no longer exists (e.g. after processing of your inquiry is completed). Mandatory legal provisions – especially archiving periods – are not affected by this clause.
