Data Protection Declaration
Generally, you can use our website without providing any personal data. The processing of personal data may be necessary if you wish to use special offers on our website (e.g. contact forms, registration forms, order forms). As far as personal data are collected on our pages (for example name, address or e-mail addresses), this takes place, as far as possible, always on a voluntary basis. These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.
We point out that the data transmission in the Internet (e.g. in the communication by e-mail) may present security gaps. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible. For this reason, you can alternatively send us data by classic postal delivery method or by telephone.

What are cookies?
Cookies are text files in which data is stored on the user’s computer. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
Also, the analysis program “Google Analytics” used cookies to learn more about the visitors and the pages accessed (e.g. how long a visitor was on a particular website). In this way, we can better serve our customers and further optimize the website. This information is anonymized – that is, we do not know which customer has performed which action.
Disable cookies in general
In most browsers, the storage of cookies is already set with the installation. You can disable them directly in your browser.
For all browsers, you can find additional information about this topic in Settings or Help.
In case you have disabled cookies, this website will not be fully usable.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
– date and time of the request
– time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
– the IP address
– the Internet service provider of the accessing system
– content of the request (concrete page)
– access status/HTTP status code
– the respectively transmitted amount of data
– website that receives the request (referrer)
– operating system and its interface
– language and version of the browser software.
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons and are stored separately from personal data. A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done. These data are required for security against attacks on our system (hacker defense). We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.
Due to the legal requirements, this website receives contact information which allow the user to easily get in touch with us. If this contact is made electronically (e-mail or contact form), this personal data will be automatically stored with us. You may provide these contact details to us on a voluntary basis. The data are stored only for the purpose of processing the request when you have contacted us and will not be disclosed to third parties.
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, in the event of activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by using the link below (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en) to download and install the available browser plugin.
Alternatively and for mobile devices, you can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website: [ga_optout]
We point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp” to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking).
Purposes of processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

Tools and plugins
This website uses the security tool “iThemes Security”. However, Network Brute Force Protection is not enabled because IP addresses would be stored on a server in the United States.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you access a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
