The controller is the natural or legal person who, either alone or jointly with others, determines the purpose and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Withdrawing Your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing procedures are only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw previously issued consent at any time. To do so, send us an email communication; no particular form is required. The legality of data processing that has occurred up to the time consent is withdrawn is unaffected.

Right to Data Portability
You have the right to have data that we have automatically processed on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract delivered to you or to a third party in an accessible, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only occur to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL Or TLS Encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential contents, such as orders or inquiries that you have sent to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection in that the address line of your browser will change from “http://” to “https://”, and from the lock symbol in your browser line.
When the SSL or TLS encryption is active, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Origin, Locking, Deletion
In the context of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, the right to correct, lock, or delete this data at no charge and at any time.

3. Data Collection on Our Website
Most of the cookies we use are what are called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser at your next visit.
You can set up your browser to tell you when a cookie is set and to only allow cookies in individual cases, to allow cookies in certain cases, or to generally exclude them, and can also activate a setting to automatically delete cookies when the browser is closed. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of the website may be limited.
Server Log Files
The provider of this website collects and automatically stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These include:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system that is used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server inquiry
- IP address
- Data quantity
This data will not be combined with other data sources.
The access logs of the web server record what server inquires have taken place at what times. They contain the following data:
IP, directory protection user, date, time, pages visited, records, status code, data quantity, referrer, user agent, host name visited.
The IP addresses will be saved in an anonymized form. The last three numbers will be removed for this purpose, e.g. 127.0.0.1 becomes 127.0.0.*. IPv6 addresses will also be anonymized. Information about directory protection users will be anonymized after one day.
Error logs that record defective site visits will be deleted after seven days.
Visits over an FTP will be recorded anonymously and stored for 60 days.
The mail logs for sending emails from the web environment will be anonymized after one day and then retained for 60 days. In anonymization, all data about the sender/recipient, etc. will be removed. Only the time the email was sent and how the email was processed are retained (source ID or not sent).
Mail logs for things sent via our mail server are deleted after four weeks. The long retention period is necessary to guarantee the functionality of the mail services and in defense against spam. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows data to be processed to fulfill a contract or for pre-contractual measures, and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, as the website operator has a legitimate interest in storing log files for technologically correct and optimized provision of their services.

4. Analysis Tools and Advertising
Google AdWords und Google Conversion-Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
5. Plugins and Tools
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, a website operated by Google. The operator of the website is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit a website equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection is created to the servers of YouTube. In the process, YouTube will be informed of which of our webpages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you will allow YouTube to attribute your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
The use of YouTube occurs in the interest of presenting our online product range. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR.
Google Web Fonts
For uniform presentation of different fonts, this website uses web fonts that are provided by Google. When visiting a website, your browser loads the necessary web fonts in your browser cache to correctly display text and fonts.
For this purpose, the browser you use must create a connection to the Google servers. This informs Google that our website was visited by your IP address. The use of Google web fonts occurs in the interest of a uniform, appealing presentation of our online product range. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard script is used by your computer.
This website uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transfer.

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 analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website.
