Data Privacy

Data privacy at a glance

Thank you very much for visiting our website and for your interest in our services. In the following we will let you know what happens to your personal data when you are visiting our website. Under GDPR, personal data comprise any information by which an individual can be directly or indirectly identified, such as your name, your telephone number, your address or some data you communicate when contacting us. For detailed information on data protection, please refer to our data protection declaration below.


Data capture while visiting our website

The purely informational use of our website is possible without entering any personal data. The web server automatically registers especially technical information, so called log files that cannot be assigned to a specific person. These data comprise, for example, the browser type and version, the operating system used, the referrer URL (the previously visited page), the specifically visited page, the IP address of the requesting computer, the access date and time and the file request of the client (file name and URL). They are collected for a statistical evaluation of the website traffic. There is no provision of combining these data with other data sources. The results of the traffic analysis are not passed on to third parties. 

However, we reserve the right to check the server log files when we have discovered signs of illegal use. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or for pre-contractual measures.


Please note that a data transmission via Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) always comes with a certain security risk. According to the state of the art, a complete protection of data against access by third parties is unfortunately not possible.



Our website does not make use of cookies.


Social Plug-ins

On our website, we do not use any of the so-called social plug-ins (e. g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+).


Contacting us

We offer you the possibility to contact us via the following e-mail address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If you send us an inquiry via e-mail, the details from your e-mail, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in view of potential follow-up questions. We will not pass on these data without your consent.

Your data provided by e-mail are processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, simply send us an informal e-mail. The lawfulness of data processing based on consent before your withdrawal remains unaffected by your withdrawal. The data which you have provided by e-mail will remain with us until you demand the erasure, you withdraw your consent for storage or until the purpose for data storage is no longer pursued (e.g. when the processing of your request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods, remain unaffected.

If you are contacting us in view of the conclusion of a contract (including the placing of an order), then the additional legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.


Responsible body

See Legal information.


Data Protection Officer (DPO)

The law does not require us to designate a data protection officer.


Processing of data (customer and contract data)

For the processing of orders, we also store the following data: name(s) of contact person(s), company name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and VAT number of the company, if applicable.

The data you provide are required either to fulfil a contract/an order or to implement pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). Without these data, we cannot enter into a contract with you. A transfer of personal data to third parties is not foreseen except for the transmission of order-related data to our tax consultant in order to perform our tax obligations. If a contract has been concluded, all personal data in the context of the contractual relationship will be stored until the expiry of the retention period according to tax law (10 years). After expiry of this retention period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted. 


Processing of your data

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Art. 96 par. 3 Telecommunications Act as well as Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a (the data subject has given consent) and/or lit. b (processing is necessary for the performance of a contract) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Transfer of personal data to third parties

If this should be necessary for the maintenance of our legitimate interests, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1  lit. f GDBR we may pass on your personal data to third parties, e.g. to the SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden.

A transmission of personal data may take place to authorized authorities at their request, within the scope of the applicable legal requirements and regulations and after consultation with you (i.e. the person concerned).


Security of your personal data

By adopting all technical and organizational security measures, your personal data provided is secured in such a way that it is inaccessible to unauthorized third parties.


Your rights

 • Right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 GDPR: You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data as long as the accuracy of your data contested is verified; if the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead; if you need your data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims after we no longer need this data for the purposes of the processing or if you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject;

The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal;

 • Right to lodge a complaint according Art. 77 GDPR: Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR.
