What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The hosting services used by us serve the provision of the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services as well as technical maintenance services which we use for the purpose of operating the website.
In doing so, we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website on the basis of our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO in connection with Art. 28 DSGVO.
We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage patterns and your interaction with us, and we register information about your computer or mobile device.
We collect, store and use data about each access to our website (so-called server log files). This includes access data:
- Name and URL of the retrieved file
- Date and time of retrieval
- Transferred data volume
- Message about successful retrieval (HTTP response code)
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
- Websites accessed by the user’s system through our website
- Internet service provider of the user
- IP address and the requesting provider
We use this protocol data without allocation to your person or other profiling for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, security and optimisation of our website, but also for anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and for the scope and type of use of our website and services. On the basis of this information, we can provide personalised and location-related content and analyse data traffic, search for and correct errors and improve our services.
This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Data to fulfil our contractual obligations
We process personal data that we need to fulfil our contractual obligations, such as name, address, e-mail address, products ordered, invoice and payment data. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.
The data will be deleted after the warranty periods and statutory retention periods have expired. Data linked to a user account (see below) will in any case be retained for the duration of the account’s management.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) DSGVO, because this data is required so that we can fulfil our contractual obligations towards you.
To register for the newsletter, the data requested during the registration process is required. The registration for the newsletter will be logged. After registration, you will receive a message at the email address provided asking you to confirm your registration (“double opt-in”). This is necessary to prevent third parties from registering with your email address.
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus cancel the newsletter.
We store the registration data as long as they are needed for the dispatch of the newsletter. We store the logging of the registration and the dispatch address as long as there was an interest in the proof of the originally given consent, as a rule these are the limitation periods for civil claims, therefore a maximum of three years.
Legal basis for the dispatch of the newsletter is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1a) iVmArt. 7 DSGVO iVm § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG. Legal basis for the logging of the registration is our justified interest in the proof that the dispatch was made with your consent.
You can cancel the registration at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A notification in text form to the contact data mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter.
If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we will process your details to process the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
If the data processing is carried out to carry out pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request, or, if you are already our customer, to carry out the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1b) DSGVO.
We only process further personal data if you consent to this (Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1a) DSGVO) or if we have a legitimate interest in the processing of your data (Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1f) DSGVO). A legitimate interest lies, for example, in replying to your email.
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by website visitors is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO.
Google has submitted to the Privacy Shield Agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and certified itself. Google thereby undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. Further information can be found in the following linked entry: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.
We have activated IP anonymization on this website (anonymizeIp). However, this will cause Google to shorten your IP address previously within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage
You can also prevent the transmission to Google of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Unless specifically stated, we will only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.
In some cases, the law provides for the retention of personal data, for example in tax or commercial law. In these cases, the data is only stored by us for these legal purposes, but is not processed elsewhere and deleted after the legal retention period has expired.

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.
Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we continually adapt to the state of the art.
Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our services will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are regularly and carefully backed up.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Transfer of Data to Third Parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries
In principle, we use your personal data only within our company.
If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), this personal data will only be received to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of the data processing (“order processing”), we contractually oblige the order processor to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the data protection laws and to guarantee the protection of the rights of the person concerned.
Data will not and will not be transferred to entities or persons outside the EU and outside the case referred to in this Statement in paragraph 4.
