– IP-Address

– Date and time of the request

– Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

– Content of the request (concrete page)

– Access status/HTTP status code

– Data volume transferred in each case

The aforementioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

This above-mentioned information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. In the case of storage of data in log files, these are deleted after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

Usage of Cookies

(1) In addition to the previously mentioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive associated with the browser you are using and through which the entity that sets the cookie (in this case by us) receives certain information. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer as a whole more user-friendly and effective.

(2) Types of cookies

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

– Transient cookies (for this a)

– Persistent cookies (for this b).

a) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website, for example, to prevent you from having to log in again each time you change pages. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

b) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. How long the cookie remains on your device depends on the duration or expiration date of the particular cookie and your browser settings. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time. Through these cookies, the website remembers your information and settings the next time you visit. This will give you faster and more convenient access to the website, as you will not have to set your language preference again, for example.

(3) We use cookies based on our legitimate interests (Technically Necessary Cookies) or based on your consent (Optional Cookies), according to your selection of the cookie banner displayed when you access the website. You can also configure your browser setting according to your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. This may result in a functional restriction of our offers.
We have compiled information for you on all cookies used in our cookie notices.

Recipients or categories of recipients

(1) In the course of our activities and services, it may become necessary for us to disclose the personal data stored about you to natural persons, legal entities or other entities. We enter into contract processing agreements with our service providers, where relevant, to ensure that they may only process your personal data in a manner that we have explicitly instructed them to do. Furthermore, we ensure that they have taken the necessary technical and organizational measures to process your data securely and only store your personal data for as long as is really necessary. External service providers who may receive personal data generally fall under the following categories of recipients:

– Credit institutions and providers of payment services for settlements as well as processing of payments (online payment providers)

– Parcel shippers

– IT service provider to maintain our IT infrastructure.

– Cloud-Providers

– Service provider for the optimization of the online services

– Collection service providers and lawyers to collect receivables and enforce claims in court. If, in the event of collection, personal data (customer and contact data, payment and consumption data and data on the debt) is transferred to a collection service provider, we will inform you in advance of the intended transfer.

(2) If data is processed in countries outside the EU, we ensure that your personal data is processed in accordance with the European level of data protection. In the absence of a decision by the EU Commission, we only transfer data to service providers from third countries that offer suitable guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR (usually EU standard contractual clauses). In cases where this cannot be ensured even by this contractual extension, we will endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the respective country.

Contact via e-mail or contact form

(1) A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These data are:

– Name

– E-Mail address

– if necessary, further personal data in the free text field

– if applicable, further data about the FriendlyCaptcha service (see below) and IP address, as well as date and time of contact

When contacting us (for example, by e-mail or after using the contact form), the information you provide will be processed for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. The other personal data processed during the submission process are used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

(2) For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the submission process and reference is made to this privacy policy. Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for the processing of the conversation. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

(3) The personal data collected by us in this context will be deleted when the matter relating to the contact has been fully clarified and it is also not expected that the specific contact will be relevant again in the future, unless there are legal storage obligations to the contrary.


(1) We send newsletters, emails and other electronic notifications with promotional information. Our newsletters contain information about our products, offers, promotions and our company. With the following information we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your rights of objection.

(2) For the registration to our newsletter we use a logged double opt-in procedure. I.e. after registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so, that no one can log in with foreign e-mail addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the subscription process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider are logged. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.

(3) To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. The provision of further data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. Sending the newsletter and measuring its success are based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a, Art. 7 GDPR.

(4) You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter and unsubscribe at any time. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by e-mail or by sending a message to the contact details provided in the imprint.

(5) For sending the newsletter, we use the provider HubSpot, 2nd Floor, 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Irland. HubSpot is a software company from the USA with a branch in Ireland. Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the data protection level of the GDPR. In order to ensure this, we have concluded an order processing contract with the provider and have included so-called standard data protection clauses in accordance with art. 46 para. 2 lit. c) GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even by this contractual extension, we will endeavor to obtain additional arrangements and commitments from the recipient in the USA. You can view the privacy policy of the shipping service provider and further details on data processing here. There you will also find more information about the storage period and the transfer of data to contractual partners of HubSpot.

(6) We expressly point out that there is currently no adequate level of data protection in the USA and that we had to adopt the standard contractual clauses offered by HubSpot unchanged. We would also like to point out, that we have no influence on the content of the contracts or on access to your data in the USA by contractual partners of the provider or US authorities.

Presence on Social-Media, Portals

(1) We are represented as operators with online presences in the social networks and platforms listed below. In terms of data protection law, we are jointly responsible with the respective platform operator within the meaning of art. 26 GDPR and, where possible, have concluded corresponding contracts with the platform operator. The details of the joint responsibility agreements can be found below in the details of the respective platform operator, in particular in the details of the Facebook Fanpage.

(2) Our online presences on social media channels serve the purposes of advertising, market research and to offer a further opportunity to communicate with customers, interested parties and users. If you contact us via our social media channels, we process the data that you provide to us as well as the data that is necessary to process the request. In these cases, we have a legitimate interest in communicating directly with the users of the platform and optimizing the design of our online presence (art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR). If the contact can be considered as a contract initiation, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR also serves as the legal basis for the processing of the data. If the user has given his consent to the operators of the respective social media platforms (e.g. by a checkbox opt-in), the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time vis-à-vis the provider of the respective platform with effect for the future.

(3) When you access our social media pages, your user data is collected and provided to us by the provider. However, the exact types of data vary from provider to provider generally include the following information:

– Follower: Number and deposited profiles; information on growth and development over a defined time frame.

-Reach: number of people who see a specific post; number of interactions on a post. This can be used, for example, to determine which content is better received by the community than others.

-Ad performance: How many people were reached and interacted with a post or paid ad?

-Demographics: average age of visitors, gender, place of residence, language.

(4) We would like to point out that you use the social media company pages offered by us and the functions of the platforms on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. sharing, commenting). Since our social media channels are operated by the providers of the respective social network, there may be a supplementary use of your personal data by the latter over which we have no influence. This often involves the collection of their IP address, the creation of static evaluations and the processing of other information stored in the form of cookies. Often, this data is also used to show you interest-based advertising within and outside the platforms. We, as the operator, have no influence on the generation and display and can neither turn off this function nor prevent the processing of the data.

(5) Regardless of where you reside, your information will be transferred to, stored and used in the United States, Ireland and any other country where the Platform Operators do business. Third-country transfers are usually legally regulated by the conclusion of the standard contractual clauses (see above). However, we expressly point out that your data will be transferred to countries (especially the USA) where there is currently no adequate level of data protection. If the data is transferred to the U.S., there is a risk that your data may be processed by U.S. authorities for control and monitoring purposes, without you possibly having any legal remedies. Dies kann für verschiedene Zwecke der Fall sein, z. B. zum Speichern oder Verarbeiten.

FriendlyCaptcha collects your IP address, technical details about your web browser and, if applicable, operating system, the subdomain accessed with metadata such as the date and time of the request and, if applicable, other entries that you are asked to make via FriendlyCaptcha.

When using FriendlyCaptcha, no automatic cookies are set. This will not happen until you click the button to start the “Anti-Robot Verification”. The provider has summarized details of this processing for you in its privacy policy.

Embedding of Videos

These are integrated in “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no cookies are set by YouTube to analyze user behavior, e.g. to personalize video playback. Instead, video recommendations are based on the current video. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the quality improvement of our Internet presence. If cookies are set via YouTube, we obtain your consent for this in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, § 25 TTDSG.

If you are logged in to Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. For the purpose of functionality as well as for the analysis of user behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your end device via your Internet browser. If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option to prevent the storage of cookies by a setting in your Internet browser. YouTube continues to store your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website.
