Data processing by visiting our website
When you visit our website, it is technically necessary that data is transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during a running connection for communication between your Internet browser and our web server:
- Visited domain
- the date and time of the request
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- Web browser and operating system used
- IP address of the requesting computer
- Amount of data transferred
We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection establishment of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file serves the evaluation of system security and stability as well as administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, these data may be temporarily stored by us. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. These data are not evaluated in anonymous form except for statistical purposes. These data are not combined with data from other data sources.
Contact form and contact by e-mail
If you send us enquiries via contact form or e-mail, your details from the enquiry form or e-mail, including the contact data you have provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.

The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO and, if applicable, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO, provided that your request is aimed at concluding a contract. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your inquiry, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary.

Your data will be deleted as soon as the user account on our website is deleted and insofar as there are no legal storage obligations.

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website with regular information about our offers and products, we need your e-mail address as mandatory information. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will not send you our newsletter by e-mail until you have expressly confirmed to us that you agree to the dispatch of newsletters. In the first step you will receive an e-mail with a link to confirm that you as the owner of the corresponding e-mail address would like to receive the newsletter in the future. With the confirmation you give us your consent according to art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO that we may use your personal data for the purpose of the desired newsletter dispatch.
When registering for the newsletter, in addition to the e-mail address required for sending the newsletter, we store the IP address via which you have registered for the newsletter as well as the date and time of registration and confirmation so that we can trace any possible misuse at a later point in time.
You can cancel the newsletter at any time via the link inserted in each newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the above-mentioned responsible person. After your cancellation, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to continued use of the data collected or continued processing is otherwise legally permissible.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. “(“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google will reduce the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which may exclude any personal relationship. Google Inc., based in the USA, is certified for the US-European Datenschutzübereinkommen “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

Areas of the websites in which personal data of you or third parties is displayed are automatically hidden by Hotjar and are therefore at no time traceable. In order to exclude a direct personal relationship, IP addresses are only stored and processed anonymously. Hotjar uses various third-party services such as Google Analytics and Optimizely. It may therefore be the case that these services collect data that is transmitted by your browser within the framework of website enquiries. These may be cookies or your IP address, for example. In these exceptional cases, this processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes.
Hotjar offers every user the possibility to prevent the use of the tool Hotjar with the help of a “Do-not-Track-Header”, so that no data über is recorded when visiting the respective website. This is a setting that supports all common browsers in current versions. Your browser sends a request to Hotjar to deactivate the tracking of the respective user. If you use our websites with different browsers or computers, you must set up the “Do-not-Track-Header” for each of these browsers or computers separately.
When you visit a Hotjar-based website, you can prevent Hotjar from collecting your data at any time by going to our opt-out page at https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out and disabling Hotjar.
