We believe that protecting your privacy when processing personal data is important. When you visit our website, our web servers store the following data as standard: the IP address of your internet service provider, the website you were visiting prior to ours, the pages of our website that you visit and the date and duration of your visit. This information is vital for the technical transmission of the website and secure server operation. We do not analyse this data in relation to you as an individual.
If you send us your data via a contact form, this data is stored and backed up securely on our servers. We only use your data to process your request. We treat your data as strictly confidential. We do not pass it on to third parties.

Personal data is information about you as an individual. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not actually have to disclose any personal data to be able to visit our website. In some cases, we need your name and address and more information about you so that we can provide you with the service you want.
The same applies if you ask us to supply you with information material and/or if we are responding to your enquiries. We will always make you aware of this in such cases. Moreover, we only store the data that you have passed on to us automatically or voluntarily.
When you use one of our services, as a general rule we only collect the data that we need to be able to provide you with our service. We may ask you for further information, but this is on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to be able to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.
When you visit our website, we store certain information for administrative and technical reasons. This is: the type and version of browser used, the date and time of access and the IP address.
This data is anonymised and only used for statistical purposes and/or to improve our internet and online services. This anonymised data is stored in secure systems, separately from personal data, and cannot be traced to any individual person. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.
On our website we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses what are known as "cookies" – text files which are stored on your computer and enable us to analyse your use of the website.
The information generated by these cookies, for example the time, place and frequency of your visits to our website, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.
On our website we use Google Analytics with “_gat._anonymizeIp” added to it. In this case Google shortens your IP address, thereby anonymising it within member states of the European Union or in other states in the European Economic Area which are party to the agreement.
Google uses this information to analyse your use of our website, to compile reports on website activities for us and to render further services relating to website use and internet use. Google may also transmit this information to third parties if this is required by law or such third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Google has stated that under no circumstances will it connect your IP address with any other data it holds. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, please be aware that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functionalities of our website as a result.
If you are visiting our website via a mobile terminal device (smartphone or tablet), you need to click this link instead to stop tracking by Google Analytics within this website in future. This is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on described above. Clicking this link installs an opt-out cookie in your browser, which only applies to this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie is also deleted and you will have to click the link again.
If you have consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history with your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalise ads, Google will use your information together with Google Analytics data to create cross-device remarketing target group lists. To do this, Google Analytics first collects your Google-authenticated ID, which is associated with your Google account, from our site (i.e. personal data is involved). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID to your Google Analytics data in order to optimise our target groups.
If you don't agree to this, you can turn it off by making the appropriate settings in the "My Account" area of your Google account.

We process your data in accordance with the latest versions of the General Data Protection Regulation and the 2018 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
You have the right to object to your personal data being used for all marketing purposes or for specific marketing measures. If you choose to do so, you will not be charged anything other than the standard costs which you would incur as a result of sending us your notification. Under Section 7(3) of the German Unfair Competition Act, we are entitled to use the e-mail address which you provide to us when entering into a contract for the direct marketing of other similar goods or services. You will receive these product recommendations from us regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter. If you would prefer not to receive these recommendations by e-mail, you can object to your e-mail address being used for this purpose at any time without being charged anything other than the standard costs which you would incur as a result of sending us your notification. A written message is sufficient for this purpose. Every e-mail which we send also contains a link which you can use to unsubscribe.
Even if we use a service provider to process data on our behalf, we remain responsible for keeping your data secure. All service providers are contractually obligated to treat your data as confidential, and will only process your data for the purpose of providing the service. The service providers which we use will only be provided with your data if it is required in order for them to provide the service. These service providers include IT service providers which we require in order to keep our IT system operational and secure, as well as advertising agencies for our advertising campaigns. Your data will be processed in our customer database. The customer database improves the quality of the customer data we have available (removal of duplicates, delayed/defunct flags, updating addresses) and can also include data from public sources. This data is provided to Group companies for the purposes of fulfilling a contract. Customer data is stored separately on a company-specific basis. Our parent company acts as the service provider for each participating company. Your data may be sent to official bodies, courts and external auditors if we are legally obliged to do so or for the purpose of legal proceedings. Your data may also be provided to insurance companies, banks, service providers and information providers in order to prepare and fulfil a contract.
We will process your data until the end of our business relationship or until the end of the relevant statutory retention periods (derived from the German Commercial Code, the German Tax Code, the German Institutional Care Act or the German Working Hours Act). If your data is required as evidence in a legal dispute, it will be retained until the dispute is resolved.
We do not send data to third countries. Your data would only be sent to a third country on the basis of a European Commission adequacy decision, EU model clauses, suitable guarantees or your express consent.
Under data protection legislation, you have the rights of access to and rectification or erasure of your data, the right to restrict the processing of your personal data, the right to object, the right to data portability and the right to lodge a complaint.
Right of access: You have the right to be informed of whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us, and to what extent.
Right of rectification: If we are processing data which is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to request that the data be corrected or completed at any time.
Right of erasure: You can request that we erase your data if it is being unlawfully processed or if the processing of the data has a disproportionate impact on your legitimate interests. Please note that it may not be possible to erase your data immediately, e.g. if we are required to retain it for legal reasons. Even if you do not exercise your right to have your data erased, we will erase it promptly and completely when it is no longer required for business purposes or subject to a statutory retention period.
Right to restrict processing: You have the right to request that the processing of your data be restricted if - you contest the accuracy of the data, for a period which enables us to verify the accuracy of the data. - the processing is unlawful and you request the restriction of the use of the data instead of having it erased. - we no longer require the data for its intended purpose, but you require the data in order to lodge or defend against a legal claim, or - you have objected to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability: You have the right to receive data which you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and also have the right to transmit the data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided - the data is processed by us on the basis of consent which you have given and can withdraw, or for the purpose of fulfilling a contract between us, and - the processing is carried out by automated means. If it is technically feasible, you are entitled to request that we transmit your data directly to a different controller.
Right to object: If we process your data in order to pursue a legitimate interest, you can object to this processing at any time; this would include profiling based on these provisions. We will then cease to process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if we can provide evidence that the processing is used for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. You have the right to object to the processing of your data for the purposes of direct marketing at any time, with no obligation to provide a reason.
Right to lodge a complaint: If you believe that we have violated German or European data protection legislation in the manner that we have processed your data, please contact us so that we can clarify the situation. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory body, i.e. the relevant regional supervisory data protection authority. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact our data protection officer. We may require additional information to confirm your identity.
The processing of your data is required in order to conclude or fulfil contracts between us. If you choose not to provide us with this data, we will normally be unable to conclude a contract. If the data relates to an existing contract, we will be unable to fulfil it, and will therefore be forced to terminate it. However, you are not obliged to give your consent for the processing of data which is not legally required or not considered relevant for the purposes of fulfilling the contract.
