Data privacy statement

Data privacy statement

We are pleased that you have decided to visit our websites. In the following, we would like to inform you about how we handle your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Usage data

When visiting our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily stored on our web server for statistical purposes. This is done to improve the quality of our websites. The following information is collected:

  • ​the page from which the file was requested,
  • the name of the file,
  • the data and time of the data retrieval,
  • the volume of data transferred,
  • the access status (file transferred, file not found),
  • the description of the type of web browser used,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer, which is abbreviated in such a way that a personal link can no longer be established.

Data transfer to third parties

Within the framework of order processing, we transmit your data in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR to service providers who support us in operating our websites and the associated processes. Our service providers are strictly bound to compliance with our instructions and are contractually bound to us.

Transfer of data to third countries

In part, we transfer personal data to a third country outside the EU. In each case, we have taken the necessary measures to ensure an appropriate level of data privacy:

In the case of Google Analytics (USA), an appropriate level of data privacy is ensured by the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield Agreement (Art. 45 Par. 1 GDPR).


Note on Google Analytics

To design our website in accordance with your needs, we create pseudonymous user profiles with the help of Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your end device and can be read by us. This allows us to recognise and count returning visitors as such. Data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR or § 15 Par. 3 TMG [German Teleservices Act] and this is done in the interest of establishing how often our websites have been accessed by different users.

As a general principle, the information generated by the cookie related to your use of this website is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, since we have enabled IP anonymisation on this website, prior to transmission to the USA, Google will first abbreviate your IP address within European Union Member States. The full IP address is only transferred to a server of Google in the USA (an adequate data privacy level is present in accordance with art. 45 par. 1 GDPR by Google's participation in the Privacy Shield), and then abbreviated there in exceptional cases. We have also concluded a contract with Google Inc. (USA) for order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Therefore, Google will use all information strictly for evaluating your use of our website and for compiling reports on website activity.

You can object to the processing at any time. Please use one of the following possibilities:

By selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, you may refuse the use of cookies. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Data security

We have put technical and organisational measures in place to protect your data from unwanted access to the most comprehensive degree possible. We use an encryption procedure on our websites. Your information is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet, using TLS encryption. You recognise this by verifying that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address bar begins with https://.

Your rights as a user

You have certain rights when it come to the processing of your personal data:

Right to information (Art. 15 GDPR):

To the extent that we record data regarding your person, you have a right to information about this personal data and to the detailed information, as listed in Art. 15 GDPR.

Right to rectification and deletion (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR):

You have the right to request the immediate correction of any incorrect personal data related to you and, if necessary, to the completion of any incomplete personal data. You also have the right to demand that personal data relating to you be deleted immediately if one of the reasons as listed in Art. 17 GDPR shall apply, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the pursued purposes.

Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR):

You have the right to demand the restriction of processing if one of the conditions as listed in Art. 18 GDPR is present, e.g. if you have submitted an objection against the processing for the duration of a possible inspection.

Right to data transferability (Art. 20 GDPR):

In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data related to you in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format, or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.

Right of objection (Art. 21 GDPR):

If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation. We will then no longer process this personal data, unless verifiable and compelling grounds for processing exist, which are worthy of protection and outweigh the interests, rights and liberties of the data subject, or when the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.


Right of complaint to a supervisory authority:

In accordance with Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to submit a complaint to a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of the data concerning you violates data privacy regulations. In particular, the right to complaint may be exercised before a supervisory authority in the Member State in which you live, at your place of work or at the place where the alleged infringement was committed.
