4. Use and disclosure of personal data
Personal data transmitted by you will only be used in response to your queries or orders, in the context of fulfilling contracts concluded with you, or for technical administration. If you have given us consent to the processing of your personal data, its processing will only take place in accordance with the purposes specified in the declaration of consent and to the extent agreed therein.

6. Data security
The security of your data in our systems is very important to us. Our goal is to manage your data with the utmost care and to take all necessary technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from loss and misuse.

Access to nearly all of our web pages is secured via HTTPS, as long as your browser supports SSL. This means that communication between your device and our servers is encrypted. If you want to contact us or our employees by email, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information transmitted is not guaranteed. Due to their technical design, the contents of emails can be viewed by third parties, unless special security measures are taken.

7. Web analysis & cookies
In order to analyse and improve the structure and navigation of our website and to tailor it to your needs, we use analytical tools on our website.

This website utilises Google Analytics, which is a web analysis service furnished by Google Inc. (‘Google’). This analysis service uses ‘cookies’, i.e. small files that are stored on the computer and that enable an analysis of the use of our website. Information about the use of our website that is collected using cookies is used to evaluate the general use of the website, to enable us to compile reports on website activity and to be able to further optimise our website, as well as to provide other services related to website and internet use. The information about the use of the website generated by Google Analytics with the help of cookies – including the anonymised IP address – is transmitted to a Google Inc. server in the USA. The anonymisation is performed by removing the last eight bits of the IP address, which means that the data transmitted can no longer be clearly assigned to a specific IP address. This information is transmitted to authorities or third parties if this transmission is required by law or if third parties are acting as a service provider on behalf of Google. However, it is possible prevent storage of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. But if your browser settings deny consent to the storage of cookies, certain functions of our website may no longer be available. By using our website, you agree to the use of Google Analytics. Further information on Google Analytics can be found at: Information on Google’s privacy policy can be found at You can find the means of circumventing the use of Google Analytics and the associated data transmission to Google here.

We also use cookies to make our internet presence as user-friendly as possible for you. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device, so we may recognise you when you visit our website once again. Cookies can be saved permanently or restricted to use during a single session. Two types of cookies are used: necessary cookies in order to be able to provide basic functions of the website and goal-oriented cookies that help us to optimise the structure and navigation of our website and thereby improve the quality of service. With both cookie applications, your IP address is immediately abbreviated and thus made anonymous so that it can no longer be traced to you. This means that your personal data is neither recorded nor evaluated, nor is it linked to other such data. You can also prevent the installation of all types of cookies by setting your browser accordingly. If you select such a setting, it may not be possible to fully utilise all functions of our website.
A general defence against the use of cookies used for online marketing purposes can be explained on a number of services – especially with regard to tracking – via the US website or the EU website Furthermore, storage of cookies can be deactivated by switching them off in the browser settings. Please note that not all functions of this website will then be available.

Any usage information collected will not be passed on to third parties.

Emails are checked purely automatically in an initial step.
