How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you provide it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form or place an order. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technically necessary data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us or our data protection officer at any time with regard to this and other questions on the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
When visiting our website, your surfing behaviour may be statistically analysed. This is done primarily with your consent using cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can revoke your consent to the analysis or prevent it through the settings in your browser. You will find detailed information on this in the following data protection declaration.
You can object to processing based on our overriding legitimate interests. We will inform you about the objection options in this data protection declaration.
General notes and mandatory information
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose and for further questions on the subject of personal data.
Data collection on our website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies.
Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-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 enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
There are different types of cookies that we use:
a) Technically necessary cookies
Technically necessary cookies are required for the functionality of our website, without them the website would only be of limited use. The user data processed by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.
This also includes temporary cookies (session cookies). Temporary cookies are used for our shopping baskets when purchasing goods. Technically necessary cookies are also used for the use of our Consent Managing Platform to obtain your consent.
b) Optional cookies
Optional cookies help us to make the website user-friendly. They are used to improve the quality of our website and its content.
c) Analysis cookies enable us to find out how the website is used and thus to constantly optimise our offer. Marketing cookies are used by us to show you personalised content and advertising that matches your interests. Under certain conditions, cookies from third-party providers are also set in order to enable third-party functions and technologies.
a) Cookies for analysis or marketing purposes
b) Technically necessary cookies
Technically necessary cookies are "absolutely necessary" cookies as defined by the ePrivacy Directive 2002/58 EC and do not require your consent. The legal basis for their use is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit f) DSGVO. (Legitimate interest)
Server log files
For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider. These so-called server log files include the type and version of your internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access as well as the IP address of the internet connection from which our website is used.
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.
The data will be deleted again if no further storage for evidence purposes is required. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until the final clarification of an incident.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
