General information

What is personal data?

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The decisive factor is therefore whether the data collected can be used to establish a personal reference. This includes information such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Information that is not directly associated with your real identity - such as favorite websites or number of users of a site - is not personal data.

How do we collect or process your personal data?

You can visit this page without providing any personal information. Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily provide it to us during your visit to our website.

How do we use personal information about you, how do we share it with you?

If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. E-mails are transmitted via a contact form. If you send us such a message, your personal data will only be collected to the extent necessary to respond.

We use the personal data provided by you exclusively for the purpose of technical administration of the websites and to fulfil your wishes and requirements, i.e. as a rule to process the contract concluded with you or to answer your enquiry.

Only if you have given us your prior consent or if you - as far as legal regulations provide for this - have not lodged an objection do we also use this data for product-related surveys, marketing purposes and statistical purposes.

Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or otherwise transmitted to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract or you have expressly consented to this.

A given consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

How long will your data be stored?

In principle, we store all information that you transmit to us until the respective, e.g. contractual purpose is fulfilled. E.g. with inquiries up to the completion, with newsletters up to you the newsletter again unsubscribe. If a longer storage is provided for by law, the storage takes place within this framework.

Should you no longer wish us to use your data, we will of course comply with this request immediately. You can contact us at any time by sending an e-mail to .

When will your data be deleted?

The deletion of the stored personal data takes place if you revoke your consent for storage, if the knowledge of the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose pursued with the storage or if the storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. Data for billing and accounting purposes will not be affected by a deletion request.

What we do for the safety of processing

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Should you wish to contact our company via e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information transmitted cannot be guaranteed. The content of e-mails can be viewed by third parties. We therefore recommend that you send us confidential information exclusively by post.

Use of cookies

Within the framework of your visit to our website, we use so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our Internet pages, as well as to make our offers as comfortable and efficient as possible for you.

On the one hand, we use so-called "session cookies", which are stored exclusively for the duration of your use of one of our Internet pages. On the other hand, we use "permanent cookies" to record information about visitors who repeatedly access one of our websites. The purpose of using these cookies is to provide you with optimal user guidance, to "recognize" you and to present you with as varied a website and new content as possible when you repeatedly use it. The content of a permanent cookie is limited to an identification number. Name, IP address etc. are not stored. A single profile formation about your usage behaviour does not take place.

A use of our offers is also possible without Cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, restrict it to certain websites or set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent. Please note, however, that if you deactivate this option, you will have to expect a restricted display of the page and limited user guidance.

Cookies, which are necessary for the execution of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

These are your data protection rights

Within the framework of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and possible recipients and the purpose of data processing (Art. 15 DSGVO) and, if applicable, your personal data. a right to correct incorrect data (Art. 16 DSGVO), to delete such data (Art. 17 DSGVO), to restrict processing in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO, to object (Art. 21 DSGVO) and to transfer data provided by you in accordance with Art. 20 DSGVO). The restrictions according to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG apply to the right to information and the right to cancellation.

In addition, in the event of violations of data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO in conjunction with §19 BDSG). The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of Data Protection Officers and their contact details can be found at the following link:

How you can revoke your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Modification of the data protection declaration

Changes may be made to this Privacy Policy, which will be posted on this page in a timely manner.

Legal basis for data processing

Insofar as we obtain the consent to process personal data from the data subject, Art. 6 (1a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1b) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

Insofar as it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1c DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or any other natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to preserve the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1f DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. Authorized interests include, in particular, ensuring the operation and security of the website, investigating the manner in which the website is used by visitors and facilitating the use of the website.

Data protection for applications and in the application process

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail. When an employment contract is concluded with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate, the application documents shall be automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz - AGG).

Google Adwords & Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and, within this framework, conversion tracking. Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our site and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users. Users who do not wish to participate in tracking can easily deactivate the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via their Internet browser under User Settings. These users will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies" are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising.

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our sites use Google Analytics Remarketing features in conjunction with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This feature allows you to link advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one terminal (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your terminals (e.g. Tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device on which you sign in with your Google Account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target audiences for cross-device advertising.

You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by opting out of personalized advertising in your Google Account by following this link:

The data collected in your Google Account is only collected on the basis of your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merging), the data collection is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The justified interest results from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of the website visitors for advertising purposes.
