This website is hosted by an external service provider (host). The personal data collected on this website is stored on the host’s server. This data includes primarily IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contract data, contact data, names, website access data and other data generated by a website.
The host is used for the purpose of performance of contracts with our potential and existing customers (point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR) and in the interest of safe, quick and efficient provision of our web presence by a professional provider (point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR).
Our host will only process your data insofar as it is required for performance of the host’s obligations and will obey our instructions regarding this data.
Conclusion of a processing contract

3. General information and obligatory information
We would like to note that data transmission on the internet (e.g. during communication by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Perfect protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

Withdrawing your consent to data processing
Many types of data processing are only possible with your explicit consent. You may withdraw previously given consent at any time. Sending us an informal message by e-mail is sufficient for doing so. The legitimacy of data processing performed prior to your withdrawal of consent, however, remains unaffected.
Right to object against data collection in special cases and against direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS MARKETING AT ANY TIME; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING, PROVIDED IT IS ASSOCIATED WITH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 (2) GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, specifically in the member state of their habitual residence, of their workplace or the location of the alleged breach. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial legal remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have any data that is processed by us through automatic means based on your consent or on performance of a contract handed over to you or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. Should you request direct transfer to another controller, we will only do so if it is technically feasible.
SSL or TSL encryption
For safety reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential data, such as orders or enquiries submitted by you to us in our role as website operator, this site uses SSL or TSL encryption. A connection is encrypted if the address bar of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and a padlock symbol is displayed.
When the SSL or TSL encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, erasure and rectification
Based on the legal regulations, you have the right to receive information at any time, free of charge, about your personal data that we have stored, its origins and recipients and the purpose of data processing. You also have a right to rectification or erasure, if applicable. Please do not hesitate to contact us at the address listed in the legal information of our website if you wish to make use of these rights or have other questions regarding personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand restriction of processing of your personal data. Please do not hesitate to contact us at the address listed in the legal information of our website if you wish to make use of this right. You have the right to restriction of processing in the following cases:
- If you dispute the correctness of the personal data stored by us, but we require time to verify this. For the duration of verification, you have the right to demand restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you have the right to demand restriction of processing rather than erasure.
- If we no longer require your personal data, but you require it for the purpose of establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to demand restriction of processing of your personal data rather than erasure.
- If you have objected in accordance with Art. 21(1) GDPR, your interests must be weighed against ours. While it remains unclear whose interests have priority, you have the right to demand restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have demanded restriction of processing of your personal data, your personal data may only - with the exception of storage - be used with your consent or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

Server log files
The provider of these sites automatically collects and stores information in “server log files”, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information includes:
- Browser type and browser version

This data is not merged with data from other sources.
This data is collected based on point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the error-free presentation and optimisation of the website and requires server log files for this purpose.
If you send us enquiries via our contact form, the information you have entered in the contact form including the contact data submitted by you will be stored by us for the purpose of responding to your enquiry and for potential subsequent enquiries. We will not disclose this data to third parties without your consent.
Processing of this data is based on point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, provided your enquiry is associated with the performance of a contract or steps taken prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us (point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR) or on your consent (point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR) provided it was requested.
The data entered by you in the contact form will be stored by us until you request that we delete them, withdraw your consent to storage or the purpose of data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been completely processed). Statutory obligations - in particular mandatory retention periods - shall remain unaffected by the above.
Enquiries by e-mail, phone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, phone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data derived from it (name, enquiry) will be saved and processed by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry. We will not disclose this data to third parties without your consent.
Processing of this data is based on point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, provided your enquiry is associated with the performance of a contract or steps taken prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us.
The data submitted by you with your contact request will be stored by us until you request that we delete them, withdraw your consent to storage or the purpose of data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been fully processed). Statutory obligations - in particular legally mandated retention periods - shall remain unaffected by the above.

This website includes embedded YouTube videos. The operator of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
If you visit one of our websites on which a YouTube video is embedded, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our sites you visited.
Moreover, YouTube can save various cookies on your device. YouTube can use these cookies to gather information about the visitors to this website. This information is used, for instance, to record video statistics, improve user friendliness and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies will remain on your device until you delete them.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you will permit YouTube to connect your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
We use YouTube to provide an appealing web presence. This is a legitimate interest as defined by point (f) of Art.6(1) GDPR. If your consent was requested (e.g. consent to storage of cookies), processing is exclusively based on point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR; consent can be withdrawn at any time.
6. eCommerce and payment providers
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as it is required for establishing, shaping the content of or changing the legal relationship (inventory data). This is based on point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, which permits processing of data for performance of a contract or for steps required prior to entering into a contract. We only collect, process and use personal data associated with the use of this website (usage data) insofar as this is necessary to allow the user to use our services or in order to invoice them.
Any collected customer data will be deleted after the order is complete or the business relationship is terminated. Legally mandated retention periods remain unaffected by the above.
