4.1 In the case of a merely informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not contact us beyond simply using the website or otherwise provide us with information, we collect usage data that your browser automatically transmits in order to enable you to visit the website. This data storage is done for exclusively system-related and statistical purposes (on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR), as well as, in exceptional cases, for reporting criminal offenses (on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 e) GDPR).

4.2 The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage has ceased to exist. In addition, such storage can be carried out if it is provided for in the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. The blocking or erasure of the data also takes place when a storage period stipulated in the aforementioned legal standards expires, unless there is a need to further store the data for the purpose of concluding a contract or performance of a contract.

4.3 The data transmitted by your internet browser, as specified in Section 4.1, consists of:

– IP address

4.4 The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. The storage of the data in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No analysis of the data for marketing purposes is carried out in this context.

Our legitimate interest in the processing of data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR is based on the purposes outlined above.


5.1 Our website uses cookies. When you use the website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk and assigned to the browser you are using, and that provide certain information to the party that places the cookie (in this case us). Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Most of the cookies we use are what are called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted after your visit ends. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
5.2 Cookies that are necessary for carrying out the electronic communication process or for providing certain functions that you desire (for example, the shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to ensure the technically faultless, optimised provision of our services. Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analysing your browsing habits) are stored, they are explained in a separate section of this Data Protection Declaration.
5.3 You can configure your browser settings in accordance with your wishes and, for example, refuse to accept cookies. However, we wish to draw your attention to the fact that if you do this, you may not be able to make use of all the functions of this website.
5.4 This stored data is stored separately from any data that may be provided to us. In particular, the data from cookies will not be linked to your other data.
5.5 In principle, a distinction is drawn between the following types of cookie:

  • Session cookies: These are stored on our web pages, on your computer or device while browsing and then deleted.
  • Persistent cookies: These cookies remain on your computer for a long time.
  • Third-party cookies: These cookies are created by affiliate websites and embedded in our website. They are used, for example, to delivery personalised advertisements.

5.6 In general, we use internet technologies (eg cookies, Java Script) for the sole purpose of making it easier for you to use our website and of optimising our website and your communication with our content: We use what are called “session cookies” to keep the current session active. We use cookies for data analysis. This enables us to recognise how well our forms are accepted, how many visitors use our pages or which websites are most frequently visited. We use cookies from third-party providers in order to improve your experience of our content and advertisements.

5.7 Some third-party providers use cookies on your computer, particularly to record visitor behaviour and to personalise offers (including advertisements). Several third-party cookies will be placed, depending on the platform. For information on how the third-party provider uses cookies, please refer to the relevant pages of the network. Information on the networks can be found in the table below. We have no control over the cookies placed by third-party providers: we therefore recommend that you examine the relevant third-party websites in order to determine which cookies are used and how they can be managed. In the case of popular third-party providers like Facebook, Google and many more, the “Digital Advertising Alliance” offers a way to collectively opt out from all DAA companies.

6.1 The collection and processing of personal data (including, for example, your name, telephone number and e-mail address) is carried out in the event that you expressly disclose this data to us in order to contact us through our contact form.

10. Matomo

Within the framework of Matomo’s range analysis, the following data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in the analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of our website as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR): the type and version of browser that you use, the operating system you use, your country of origin, the date and time of the server request, the number of visits, how long you spend on the website and the external links you use. The IP address of the user is anonymised before being stored.

Matomo uses cookies that are stored on users’ computers and enable an analysis of how users use our website. In this case, pseudonymised usage profiles of users can be created from the processed data. The cookies have a storage period of one week. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website will only be stored on our server and will not be passed on to third parties.

Users can at any time dissent to the anonymised collection of data by the Matomo programme, with effect for the future, by clicking on the link below. In this case, what is called an “opt-out cookie” will be stored in your browser, with the result that Matomo will no longer collect any session data. However, if users delete their cookies, this means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and must therefore be reactivated by the user.

The logs containing the users’ data will be erased after 6 months at the latest.
