Note on data protection

We take data protection and the protection of your personal rights very seriously. Therefore, we comply with the current data protection law in all our handling processes.

Collection and processing of personal data

We process data transmitted to us only to the necessary extent in each case and for the purposes of order fulfilment, performance of a contract, for internal administrative purposes and for provision of services which includes our website. We also use our customers’ contact details to post them a catalogue with information about our current assortment.

Your personal data is stored by us for the duration of the legitimate use. Further retention requirements act in accordance with legal regulations.

All our employees are obliged to maintain confidentiality and observe external and internal privacy policy with regard to the processing of your data. We protect your data from unauthorized access and disclosure as well as from loss and destruction with many technical and organisational security measures.
Our security measures are regularly checked and kept up to date.
Your data is only transmitted to public authorities or state institutions if we are obligated by legal requirements.
We aim to avoid data transfers to third countries. If this isn’t possible because we have to comply with obligations, we ensure that the recipients provide an adequate level of data privacy protection.

Server Logfiles:

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “Server log files”. These are:
* Browser type and browser version
* Operating system used
* Referrer URL
* Host name of the accessing computer
* Time of the server request
* IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Use of cookies:

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization

We have enabled the IP anonymization feature on this website. Hence, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services related to the use of the website and the internet for the website operator. The IP address submitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

For more information about how Google Analytics handles user data, see Google's privacy policy:


Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.

If you're logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under


Through our website, you can subscribe to an electronic newsletter which keeps you informed about different topics. When registering for the newsletter, you will only be required to input data that is necessary for its delivery.
In order to avoid unauthorized people subscribing to the newsletter on your behalf, our website works according to the double opt-in process. This means you will receive an email with a confirmation link, and only once you have clicked on it will you be included on our mailing list.
Of course, you have the option to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. To do so, please use the ‘unsubscribe’ link that is included in every newsletter.

Contact form

Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.


Your rights

Upon request, we will inform you about if and what personal data of yours is stored by us, and will send it to you. If you notice that specific data is not accurately registered or is no longer up-to-date, we will update the data as you request.
We will delete your data if you ask us to, as long as no other legal obligations to store it obstruct this. In this case we will restrict the processing of your data.
At any time, you have the right to object consents previously given to us (for example, for marketing purposes) without giving any reasons.
If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
In case of a data breach, you may also, of course, file a complaint with the competent supervisory authorites.
