General information and mandatory information

Data security

Unfortunately, the transfer of information over the internet is never completely secure; for this reason, we cannot guarantee the security of data transferred to our website over the internet. We have put appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to protect our website and other IT systems against the loss of availability, integrity and confidentiality.

Revoking your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations can only take place with your express consent. If you have given your consent to such operations, you can revoke it at any time. To do so, send us a message to this effect via email (no official form is required). However, such revocation does not affect the legality of any data processing performed prior to revocation.

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of infringements of data protection legislation, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in relation to issues of data protection legislation is the Data Protection Commissioner for the federal state in which our company has its registered office. You can find a list of the Data Protection Commissioners for the German federal states and their contact details [in German] via the following link:

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil in a contract provided to you or to a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. In the event that you request that this data be transferred directly to another controller, we shall only do so where technically feasible.

Access, blocking, erasure

In the context of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to access your stored personal data at any time and free of charge, and also to access the origin of this data, its recipients and the purpose of the data processing as well as, if applicable, the right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time regarding this issue and for any other queries on the topic of personal data using the address provided in the legal notice.

Objection to promotional emails

We hereby refuse the use of the contact details published in the context of the German legal requirement to publish a site legal notice in order to send advertising or informational materials we have not expressly requested. The operator of the site expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the case that undesired marketing information is received, such as in the form of spam email.

SSL and TLS encryption

For security reasons and in order to safeguard the transmission of confidential information, such as orders or enquiries you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL and TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection in the browser’s address bar, which changes from “http://?” to “https://?”, while a lock symbol also appears in the browser bar.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot by read by third parties.

Data collection on our website


We use so-called “cookies” on our website. Cookies do not damage your computer in any way and do not contain viruses. They serve to make our offering more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. They are small text files that are placed on your computer and are stored by your browser. Your browser features various settings that, when configured, enable you to receive notifications when cookies are placed or to allow cookies only in individual cases. You can also configure your browser to delete cookies automatically when you close the browser window. Furthermore, you can configure your browser to reject cookies in general or only in specific cases. Deactivating cookies can cause some areas of our website to stop functioning properly.

Contact form

If you contact us via our contact form, we will use the contact details you enter in the contact form exclusively for the purpose of processing your enquiry and will save them in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass this data on without your consent.
The data you enter in the application form and the documents you digitally transmit will therefore be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 Para. 1 Point a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. To do so, send us a message to this effect via email (no official form is required). However, such revocation does not affect the legality of any data processing operations performed prior to revocation.
We will retain the data you enter in the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to its storage or until the purpose for its storage ceases to exist. Mandatory legal provisions – and in particular mandatory retention periods – remain unaffected.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google to ensure a sufficient level of data security in the transfer of forms. First and foremost, this service can distinguish whether data has been entered by a natural person or has been entered abusively through automated machine processing. The service comprises the transmission of the user’s IP address and, if necessary, further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service. The Google data privacy regulations, which differ from this Data Privacy Statement, apply to this service.

When you visit one of our pages that features a YouTube plugin, a connection is made with the YouTube servers. This informs the YouTube server of which of our webpages you visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, this enables YouTube to attribute your surfing activities directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited ("Google") is used on this website. The use includes the "Universal Analytics" operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user's activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users interact with the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit or
