Collection, processing and storage of personal data
When you visit our website, our web servers save the IP address assigned to you by your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the websites you visit on our site, the type and version of the browser used as well as the date and duration of your visit. With the exception of your IP address, personal data will be stored only for the expressly stated purposes if you make it available to us on your own initiative, e. g. as part of a registration, a reservation, an order, a survey, a competition or for the execution of a contract. Unless stated otherwise, personal data will only be stored by us for as long as this is necessary to fulfil the pursued purposes.
Personal data is only processed with your consent. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain consent in advance for factual reasons and the processing of the data is required by legal regulations.
As far as we obtain your consent for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Use, disclosure of personal data and earmarking
The legal basis of processing data in our company is Art. 6 Abs. 1 S.1 lit. GDPR. Our interests in data processing include ensuring the operation and security of our website, investigating the manner in which visitors use it and simplifying the use of our website as well as for product surveys and marketing purposes but only to the extent necessary in each case. In particular if you provide us with personal data for the purpose of informing you about our products and services, we would like to use your data to question you if necessary. Of course, your participation in such actions is voluntary. If you do not want to take part in it, you can inform us at any time and we will block your data accordingly.
Personal data will not be passed on by us without your consent. If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts, this personal data is only received to the extent to which the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service. In the event that certain parts of data processing will be outsourced (“order processing”), we oblige contractors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and ensure the protection of your rights. Personal data will only be transferred to state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory national legislation. Data transmission to places or persons outside the EU beside the cases mentioned in this declaration does not take place and is not planned. We reserve our right to check data subsequently if there are concrete indications of illegal use or if it is necessary for the detection and elimination of faults.

Social Media Widgets and applications
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, Instagram, LinkedIn and Pinterest. These plugins are operated exclusively by the respective networks. These plugins provide you with the option to share content or recommend our products.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and any further processing and usage of your data by social networks as well as your relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the respective networks or websites.
