We are pleased to note your interest in our company and when you visit our website, we would like you to feel safe as regards the protection of your personal data because we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Compliance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other relevant data protection regulations is deemed a given for us.
We would like you to know when we collect what data and how we use it. We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the regulations on data protection are respected by both us and external service providers.
Personal data is information about your identity: This includes such information as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. You do not need to disclose personal data when using our website. However, in certain cases we need your name, address and other details, so that we can provide you with the desired services. For example, the same applies to sending information material and ordered goods or to answering individual questions. We will indicate this accordingly where this is required. In addition, we will only store and process data that you voluntarily or automatically provide to us. As a rule, only the data we need to provide the required service will be requested. Where we ask you for further data, this information is voluntary. Personal data is solely processed to fulfil the requested service and to protect our own legitimate business interests.
We generally use the personal data you provide to reply to your inquiries, process your orders or allow you access to specific information or offers. In order to maintain customer relationships, it may also be necessary that we or a service provider commissioned by us use this personal data to inform you about product offers that are useful to your business or to conduct on-line surveys in order to meet the tasks and requirements of our customers better. Of course, we respect the fact if you do not want us to submit your personal data to support our customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or market research purposes). We will not sell your personal data to third parties or otherwise market it.
We will collect, process and use the personal data you have provided on-line only for the purposes indicated by you. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties without your necessary consent. We will collect and transfer personal data to government institutions and bodies authorised to have this information only in accordance with the applicable laws if we are obliged to do so by a court decision. Our employees and the service providers commissioned by us are obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and comply with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
when using our internet pages, the following data is stored for organisational and technical reasons: the names of the pages accessed, the browser used and the operating system, date and time of access, search engines, names of downloaded files and your IP address. We evaluate this technical data anonymously and only for statistical purposes in order to constantly optimise our website and to make our website even more attractive. This anonymous data is stored separately from personal information on secure systems and does not allow an individual person to be identified. This means that your personal data and your privacy are protected at all times.
If you use external links offered on our internet pages, this data protection statement does not cover these links. When we offer links, we make every effort to ensure that these also comply with our data protection and security standards. However, we do not have any influence on compliance with our data protection and security regulations by other providers. Therefore, please consult the other providers’ websites about the data protection statements set out there.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will first abbreviate your IP address within EU Member States or in other states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA, where it will then be abbreviated. On behalf of the owner of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities for the website operators, and to provide other services associated with website and internet usage. The IP address of your browser, obtained during Google Analytics processes, will not be linked in any way to the other data gathered by Google. You can stop cookies from being saved on your computer by selecting the relevant settings in your browser software; please note, however, that you may not be able to use all of the features of the functions on this website in such cases. You can also prevent Google from receiving and processing the data generated by the cookie and data about your usage of the website (including your IP address) by going to the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en) to download and install the browser plug-in available there.
