Privacy Policy

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

As a rule, our website can be used without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions (e.g. the sending of e-mails) can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

In this respect, the following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data:

This includes the date and time of access, URL (address) of the referring website, file(s) accessed, pages viewed, length of visit, amount of data sent, browser type and version, operating system and your IP address. This data is stored separately from other data that you enter when using our website. It is not possible for us to assign this data to a specific person. The data do not contain any information that allows conclusions to be drawn about individuals. They are collected and used exclusively for statistical purposes as well as for analysis purposes, such as improving the offer, and then deleted.

Collection and use of personal data
Personal data (e.g. name, e-mail address) will only be collected and used by us if you enter this data in an input field or by e-mail for the purpose of making an enquiry to us or making use of a service or offer and send it to us or if you have expressly consented to the collection and use of this data. These entries are voluntary for you. Your personal data will only be used for the intended purpose (e.g. to answer your enquiry or to process your order and contract).

Inventory data
If a contractual relationship is to be established between you and us, or if its content is to be modified or amended, we will collect and use your personal data to the extent necessary to achieve these purposes.
By order of the responsible authorities, we may in individual cases provide information about this data (inventory data), insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, for averting danger, for fulfilling the statutory duties of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service or for enforcing intellectual property rights.

Usage data

For the purposes of advertising, market research and the needs-based design of our Internet offering, we may use pseudonyms to create user profiles. You have the right to object to this use of your data at any time. The user profiles may not and will not be combined with data about the bearer of the pseudonym.

For users who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can view, change or delete their personal information at any time (the user name cannot be changed). Website administrators may also view and change this information.

Passing on personal data to third parties
Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless the disclosure would be necessary for the purpose of contract processing – e.g. the disclosure of order data to suppliers – or for billing purposes, or you have previously expressly consented.
