3. Data collec­tion on our website

Cookies

Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, effi­cient, 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 after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to reco­gnize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can confi­gure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alter­na­tively, your browser can be confi­gured to auto­ma­ti­cally accept cookies under certain condi­tions or to always reject them, or to auto­ma­ti­cally delete cookies when closing your browser. Disab­ling cookies may limit the func­tio­n­a­lity of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow elec­tronic commu­ni­ca­tions or to provide certain func­tions you wish to use (such as the shop­ping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 para­graph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legi­ti­mate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an opti­mized service provided free of tech­nical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing beha­vior) are also stored, they will be treated sepa­r­ately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider auto­ma­ti­cally collects and stores infor­ma­tion that your browser auto­ma­ti­cally trans­mits to us in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Opera­ting system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the acces­sing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data proces­sing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the proces­sing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preli­mi­nary to a contract.

Contact form

Should you send us ques­tions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, inclu­ding the contact details you provide, to answer your ques­tion and any follow-up ques­tions. We do not share this infor­ma­tion without your permission.

We will, there­fore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is suffi­cient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its dele­tion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfil­ling your request). Any manda­tory statu­tory provi­sions, espe­cially those regar­ding manda­tory data reten­tion periods, remain unaf­fected by this provision.

4. Plugins and tools

Google Web Fonts

For uniform repre­sen­ta­tion of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

When you call up a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser makes a direct connec­tion with Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attrac­tive presen­ta­tion of our website. This consti­tutes a justi­fied interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
