The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and will treat your personal information confidentially and in accordance with the law. Bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can generally be subject to security vulnerabilities. Full protection against access by others unknown is not possible.

The data collected are intended for statistical purposes only and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to examine the server logfiles retrospectively, if specific indications point to unlawful use.


This site uses cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website. Popular browsers offer the option of not permitting cookies. Note: there is no guarantee that you will be able to access all features of this website without restriction if you enter settings that exclude cookies.

Personal data

Personal data will only be processed if you provide it to us within the framework of a contract (for example, making a purchase), in inquiries to us (in any way whatsoever, eg via email or via the form on our website) or when registering for our newsletter.
If you contact the website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your request.
We collect, store, read and use the information provided by you (name, address, date of birth, age, gender, email address, company name) without your specific consent only to fulfil and process our contracts with you, to respond to inquiries – and if necessary, to make contact, if this becomes necessary for the purposes stated.

Transmission to third parties

Any transfer of data to third parties will take place only to the extent necessary to fulfil our contractual obligation or to process inquiries. For this purpose, your name and the transmitted payment data such as account or credit card numbers are transmitted to the respective payment service providers.
Any further processing of your data, in particular a transfer to other third parties, will only take place with your express prior consent. The data processing then will take place exclusively within the framework of the consent given. You can revoke your consent at any time, after which the data processing indicated will no longer take place.

Processing comments and contributions

If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is for the security of the website operator: if your text should in some way violate the law, the webmaster may wish to establish your identity.


You can subscribe to both the entire website and to follow-up comments on your post. You will receive an email confirming your email address. Beyond this, no further data will be collected. The stored data will not be passed on to third parties. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Newsletter subscription

You have the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter via our website. For this we need your email address and your declaration that you consent to establishing the subscription to the newsletter.

You can cancel the subscription to the newsletter at any time. Please submit your cancellation to the following email address:, or unsubscribe at any time via a link in the newsletter. We will immediately delete your data involved in the newsletter subscription.

Deletion of data

With complete processing of the contract and payment in full, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiration of the tax and commercial retention periods (usually seven years) and the statutory compensation period (thirty years from the occurrence of any damages, as we determine this period from termination of the contract), unless you have expressly consented to the further processing of your data. This applies to all data whose processing is necessary to fulfil our legal obligation and to defend against or prosecute legal claims.

Legal basis for data processing

The above-mentioned data processing takes place on the basis of Art 6 para 1 lit a), lit b), lit c) and lit f) of the GDPR.
Insofar as we process data on the basis of our legitimate business interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR, our interest lies in being able to examine complaints and to defend against or prosecute these responses or legal claims.
If you have given your consent for a specific processing of your personal data, you can revoke it at any time. The data processing already carried out up to the point of revocation – made on the basis of your consent – remains lawful regardless of the revocation.
