We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):
a) where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract – GDPR Article 6 paragraph 1 b)
Die The processing of data serves to facilitate the provision of services within the framework of the execution of our contracts with our customers as well as the performance of pre-contractual tasks (e.g. arranging appointments). In particular, we collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us in connection with your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. The nature and extent of the data collected can be seen from the input forms in question. We use the data provided by you to process contracts and your enquiries.
b) on the basis of your consent – GDPR Article 6 paragraph 1 a)
If you have given us your consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the legality of this processing is founded upon your consent. The consent thus granted can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before the GDPR came into force, i.e. prior to 25 May 2018. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of any data processing that took place prior to such revocation.
This legal principle applies in particular to:

You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact address given below or via a link provided for this purpose in the advertising e-mail.
– evaluation reminders by e-mail
If you have expressly consented according to Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 point a of the GDPR, we will use your e-mail address as a reminder to submit an evaluation of your order via the evaluation system used by us. You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact address given below or via a link provided for this purpose in the reminder e-mail.
– when using our contact forms (requests for information material)
To request information material or queries about our products, we offer you the opportunity to contact us using a form provided on the website or our shop. A valid e-mail address is required so that we know who sent the request and can respond to it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your request has been processed.

The above-mentioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:
The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 point f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes listed above for data collection. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.
The data processed by cookies is required for the aforementioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 point f of the GDPR.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. It is possible, in fact, to configure your browser to ensure that no cookies are stored on your computer or that a message always appears before a new cookie is created. However, if you deactivate cookies altogether, you may find yourself unable to use some of the functions of our website.
– the use of Google Analytics
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter „Google“). In this context, pseudo user profiles are created and cookies (see point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as:
are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and to facilitate the demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are rendered anonymous so that no assignment is possible (IP masking).
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google
by downloading and installing a browser add-on
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is then set to prevent the collection of your data when you visit this website in future. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in Google’s „Analytics Help“ section (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).
In order to make our company better known, the underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 point f of the GDPR, we use social plug-ins of the social network Facebook. It is the responsibility of the provider, Facebook, to guarantee compliance with data-protection norms.
In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are not unrestricted, but only integrated into the page using an HTML link (so-called „Shariff solution“ from c’t). This integration ensures that no connection is established with the servers of the provider of the respective social network when a page of our website containing such plug-ins is called up. Click on one of the buttons, a new window of your browser opens and calls up the page of the respective service provider, on which you can (if necessary after entering your login data) e.g. press the Like or Share button. Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. Secondly, if you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the „LIKE“ or „PART“ button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends. Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out or not log in to Facebook before visiting our website.
To discover the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy please consult Facebook’s own data policy statement (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
