A. General

For the sake of easier reading, no gender-specific distinction is made in our data protection declaration. The terms used apply, in the context of equal treatment, to both genders.

The meaning of the terminology used, for example ‘personal data’ or its ‘processing’ can be taken from Article 4 of the EU-General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The users’ personal data processed in the context of this online offering, include inventory data (e.g. client’s name and address), contract data (e.g. services used, name of person responsible, payment information), usage data (e.g. Websites of our online offering visited, interest in our products) and content data (e.g. input into the contact form).

‘User’ includes all categories of persons affected by the data processing. These include, for example, our business partners, customers, interested parties and other visitors to our online offering.


B. Specfic


Data protection declaration
We guarantee that we only collect, process, store and use your incoming data in connection with the processing of your request, as well as for internal purposes and providing the ser-vices that you have requested or to make content available.

Basis of data processing
We process the user’s personal data only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. The user’s data are only processed when the following statutory permission ex-ists:
• on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation and security of our online offering in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, in particular range measurement, production of profiles for advertising and marketing purposes, as well as the collection of access data and the use of ser-vices from third party providers)

We would like to show you where the main legal grounds are regulated in the GDPR:

Consent Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. and Art. 7 GDPR
Processing to deliver our contractual performance and carry out contractual measures
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR
Processing to fulfil our legal obligations Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. GDPR
Processing to safeguard our legitimate interests
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR


Data transfer to third parties
Data is only passed to third parties within the framework of the legal provisions. We only pass user’s data to third parties when this is, for example, necessary for contractual purposes or based on our legitimate interest in the economic and the effective operation of our business operations.

In the event that we use subcontractors to provide our services, we take suitable legal precautions as well as appropriate technical and organizational measures, to provide protection for personal data in accordance with the relevant legal provisions

We would like to point out that a data transfer takes place when using our online offering due to the use of Google Analytics.

Data transfers to third countries or an international organization
Third countries are countries in which the GDPR is not a directly applicable law. This basically includes all countries outside the EU, respectively, the European Economic Area.

A transfer of data to a third country or an international organization takes place. Hereby is taken into consideration that relevant suitable/appropriate guarantees are present, and your enforceable rights and effective judicial remedies are available.

A copy of the appropriate guarantees can be obtained under the following links:


• Privacy-Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list

• Standard contractual clauses:
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2010:039:0005:0018:DE:PDF

Length of storage of your personal data
We adhere to the principles of data economy and data avoidance. This means the data made available to us is only retained for as long as it is needed to fulfil the previously named purposes or as laid down by the manifold storage periods provided for by the legislator. If the relevant purpose no longer exists, respectively after expiry of the appropriate period, your data is routinely blocked, respectively erased, in accordance with the statutory provisions

We have developed a company-internal concept to guarantee this procedure.

Making contact
If you make contact with us by email, telephone, fax, contact form etc., you consent to electronic communication. Personal data will be collected in the context of contacting us. Which data is collected in the case of a contact form, can be seen on the respective contact form. The information which you provide will be stored exclusively for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

We would like to tell you the legal grounds:

Processing to fulfil our performance and carry out contractual measures
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR
Processing to safeguard our legitimate interests
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR

We would like to advise you that emails can be read or changed, unnoticed and without authorization, during transmission.
We would also like to bring to your attention that we use software to filter unwanted emails (spam filter). Emails can be rejected by the spam filter if they are wrongly identified as spam due to the presence of certain characteristics.

What rights do you have?
a) Right to information
You have the right to obtain information about your stored data without charge. Upon request, we will tell you in writing, in accordance with current law, what personal data about you we have stored. This also includes the origin and recipient of your data as well as the purpose of the data processing.
b) Right to rectification
You have the right to have your data which is stored by us, corrected, if it is incorrect. You can demand a limitation to the processing of your personal data, e.g. if the accuracy of your personal data is contested.

c) Right to blocking
Furthermore, you can have your data blocked. So that a blocking of your data can be taken into account at any time, the data must be held in a lock file for control purposes.

d) Right to erasure
You can also demand the erasure of your personal data, so long as no legal storage obligation exists. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request. If appropriate statutory requirements are present, we will also erase your personal data without a request from yourself

e) Right to data transferability
You are entitled to demand that the personal data transferred to us, is made available in a format which enables it to be transferred to another location
f) Right to complain to a supervisory authority

g) Right to object
You have the right to object at any time to the use of your data for internal purposes with future effect. For this, it is sufficient to send an appropriate email to e-mail address. However, such an objection does not affect the legality of processing procedures which we have already carried out. This does not affect data processing in respect of other legal bases, for example, such as contract initiation (see above)

Protection of your personal data
We take state of the art contractual, organizational and technical security measures to ensure compliance with the provisions of the data protection laws and therefore, to protect the data which we process against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons

Thereby your personal data is protected in the context of the following points (extract):
a) Ensuring the confidentiality of your personal data
To ensure the confidentiality of the personal data which we store, we have taken various measures to control access.

b) Ensure the integrity of your personal data
To ensure the integrity of the personal data which we store, we have taken various measures to control transfer and input.

c) Ensure availability of your personal data
To ensure the availability of the personal data which we store, we have taken various measures to control orders and availability

The security measures employed are continually improved in accordance with technical development. Despite these precautions, because of the insecure nature of the internet, we are unable to guarantee the security of your data transfers to our online offering. For this reason, all data transfers from you to our online offering are made at your own risk.


Protection of minors
Persons who are under 16, are not allowed to provide us with their personal information without the express consent of the person having parental responsibility. These data will be processed in accordance with our data protection declaration.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which are automatically transferred to us by your browser. These are:

• Browser type and browser version
• operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• time of the server request
• IP address

These data are not combined with other data sources.

The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, which allows data processing to safeguard our legitimate interests, and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or as a precontractual measure.

Web analysis service Google Analytics / Universal Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "Cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and allow the use of the online offering to be analysed. The information produced by the cookie about the use of the online offering, is normally transmitted to a server in the USA belonging to Google and stored there. Therefore, data is transmitted to a third country. It is considered that relevant suitable/appropriate guarantees are present and enforceable rights and effective legal remedies are available to you.

You can obtain a copy of the suitable guarantees under the following links:

• Privacy-Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list

• Standard contract clauses:
http://eurlex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2010:039:0005:0018:DE:PDF

In the event that the IP anonymization is activated in our online offering, your IP address will be shortened inside the European Union member states or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server belonging to Google in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of the online offering and compile reports about the online offering’s activi-ties and in order to provide us with other services connected to the use of the online offering and the internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics, is not combined with other data by Google. You can prevent the storing of cookies by using an appropriate setting in your browser software. However, we point out that in this case, it is possible that not all the functions of the online offering can be used to the full ex-tent.

We point out that this online offering uses Google Analytics with the "_anonymizeIp()" exten-sion and IP addresses are therefore only further processed in a shortened form to exclude a direct personal reference.

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user recognition (e.g. User-ID) or advertising ID, is automatically erased after 14 months. The erasure of data which has reached the end of its retention period, is carried out automatically once a month. More detailed information about conditions of use and data protection, can be found under https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under https://policies.google.com/?hl=de

In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data produced by the cookie in reference to the use of the inline offering (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of the data by Google, by downloading and installing the following browser plugin:
http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

As an alternative to the browser plugin or in browsers on mobile devices, the following link can be used to set an opt-out cookie which will prevent the collection by Google Analytics inside this online offering in future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain, delete the cookies in this browser and click the link again):

Use of YouTube
Functions of the service YouTube are integrated into our online offering for displaying and replaying advertisements. These functions are offered by YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066 USA. Further information can be found in YouTube’s data protection guide-lines.

Hereby, the extended data protection mode is used which, according to the service provider, only stores user information after the video replay has been begun.

If the replay of embedded YouTube videos is started, YouTube uses cookies to collect infor-mation about user behaviour. According to notes from YouTube, this serves to, among other things, collect video statistics, improve user friendliness, and prevent misuse. Independently from the replay of embedded videos, a connection to the Google network „DoubleClick“ is made each time our online offering is accessed, which can lead to further data processing procedures, without any influence from us.

Further details about the use of cookies by YouTube can be found in YouTube’s data protection declaration under: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube

Amendments to our data protection policy
We reserve the right to adapt our data protection declaration on occasions, so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes in our services in the data protection declaration. This could apply e.g. to the introduction of new services. The new data protection declaration would then apply to your return visit.

Brand protection
Each firm or trade mark named here is the property of the respective firm. The naming of brands and names is purely for informative purposes.

A. Specific provisions for Russia

The following applies to users who are residents of the Russian Federation:

The services of our online offer listed above, are not intended for citizens of the Russian Fed-eration who are resident in Russia.

If you are a Russian citizen resident in Russia, you are expressly informed that all personal data that you make available to us over our internet offering, is exclusively at your own risk and on your own responsibility. You further agree that you will not hold us responsible for a possible breach of Russian Federation law.
