Some of the web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website 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 when you leave our website. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser next time you visit our website.
You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are set, to allow or block cookies in individual cases or in general, and to activate automatic deletion of cookies upon closing your browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Cookies that are necessary for electronic communication or for providing certain functions you have requested (e.g. shopping cart) are stored on the basis of Art. (6) (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to deliver its services such that they are free of technical errors and optimised. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system in use
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. (6) (1) (b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data when necessary for the performance of a contract or prior to entering into a contract.
If you use the contact form to send us enquiries we will store the information you provide there, including your contact details, for the purpose of processing your enquiry and answering any follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The data you enter into the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time. Simply send us an informal e-mail message. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
We will store the data you enter into the contact form until you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent for us to store it, or if the purpose for storing your data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular relating to retention periods – remain unaffected.
