For example, it may be necessary for us to transfer your address and order data to a service provider or supplier when you request an offer or order products. Data may also be passed on if we are entitled or obliged to pass on data due to statutory provisions and/or official or court orders. This may, in particular, involve the provision of information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, averting danger or enforcing intellectual property rights.



5. Cookies

In order to keep our website interesting, intuitive and user-friendly, to improve it and to accelerate enquiries, we use so-called "cookies". These are small text files which are temporarily stored on your data carrier and which save certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. These are information points based on user activities, visit preferences and website settings. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain malicious software such as viruses.

A cookie contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. This is not done by assigning it to you personally, but by assigning an identification number to the cookie ("cookie ID"). The cookie ID is not merged with your name, IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you.In den Einstellungen Ihres Browsers erhalten Sie weitere Informationen über die eingesetzten Cookies. Wenn sie nicht möchten, dass Cookies auf Ihrem Computer gespeichert werden, können sie Ihren Browser so einstellen, dass eine Speicherung von Cookies nicht akzeptiert wird. Bitte beachten Sie, dass Sie unsere Webseite in diesem Fall ggfls. nur eingeschränkt oder gar nicht nutzen können.

Please refer to the help function of your browser for instructions on how to prevent and delete cookies.

This website uses the open source web analysis service Matomo of InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. Matomo uses cookies.

These cookies are only set after your consent. You can also configure the cookie settings on our website. Technically necessary (essential) cookies are set by default, as these are necessary to make the website usable. The use of cookies for statistical purposes is optional. The exact purpose of the individual cookies and the duration of their storage can be found in the cookie settings. If you do not agree with the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate the storage and use at any time. In this case an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser which prevents Matomo from storing usage data. If you delete your cookies, the Matomo Opt-Out-Cookie will be deleted as well.

6. Data processing

All information that you transmit to us is stored on our servers in Germany.


7. Data security

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted via the Internet to our website. However, we secure our website and other systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons. These include various security measures such as firewalls, anti-virus software and manual security checks. The transmission of your personal data is encrypted. Please note that SSL encryption is only activated for transmissions with the database via the Internet if the key symbol appears in the lower menu bar of your browser window. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) uses encryption technology to protect the data transmission from illegal data access by third parties. If this option is not available, you can also decide not to send certain data over the Internet.


8. Data protection and third party websites

The website may contain hyperlinks to and from third-party websites. If you follow a hyperlink to one of these websites, please note that we cannot accept any responsibility or guarantee for third-party content or data protection conditions. Please make sure you are aware of the applicable data protection terms and conditions before you submit personal data to these websites.

On our pages we also link to online offers of third parties if we consider them to be helpful. These can be, for example, videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. As always on the Internet, calling up such third-party offers requires your IP address to be transmitted to the provider so that the content can be sent to you. We make every effort to link only those providers who use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on the fact that third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as we are aware of this, we inform the users about it.


9. Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to change these data protection regulations at any time with effect for the future. A current version is available on the website. Please visit the website regularly and inform yourself about the currently valid data protection regulations.

You have the right at any time and free of charge to request information about the data stored about you, its origin and recipients as well as the purpose of storage. In addition, you have the right to correct, block and delete this personal data in accordance with the statutory provisions.
