2. Data subject rights

Accor­ding to Art. 15 DSGVO, you have the right to receive infor­ma­ti­on about the data stored about you, inclu­ding any reci­pi­ents and the planned storage period. If incor­rect per­so­nal data is pro­ces­sed, you have the right to rec­ti­fi­ca­ti­on in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO. If the legal requi­re­ments are met, you may request the dele­ti­on or rest­ric­tion of pro­ces­sing as well as object to pro­ces­sing (Art. 17, 18 and 21 DSGVO).

If you wish data to be deleted but we are still legally obliged to retain it, access to your data will be rest­ric­ted (blocked). The same applies in the event of an objec­tion.

The legal bases of our data pro­ces­sing are the fol­lo­wing accor­ding to Art. 13 DSGVO:

  • 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data with the consent of the data subject.
  • 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO for the neces­sa­ry pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data for the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract with the data subject as well as for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of cor­re­spon­ding pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res.
  • 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO for the neces­sa­ry pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data for the ful­fill­ment of a legal obli­ga­ti­on to which we are subject accor­ding to any appli­ca­ble law of the EU or accor­ding to any appli­ca­ble law of a country in which the DSGVO is appli­ca­ble in whole or in part.
  • 6 para. 1 lit f) DSGVO for the neces­sa­ry pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data to protect the legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests of us or of third parties, unless the fun­da­men­tal free­doms and rights and inte­rests of the data subject prevail.

Legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests are in par­ti­cu­lar our busi­ness inte­rest in being able to provide our website, infor­ma­ti­on secu­ri­ty, the enforce­ment of our own legal claims and com­pli­ance with other legal pro­vi­si­ons.

For this purpose, we use service com­pa­nies that are sepa­ra­te­ly com­mit­ted to con­fi­den­tia­li­ty and data pro­tec­tion as part of the service pro­vi­si­on. Data is only passed on to public aut­ho­ri­ties in the event of over­ri­ding legal requi­re­ments.


4. Right of revocation

Cons­ents given can be revoked by you with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 DSGVO.

5. Data security/encryption

This website uses “Hyper­text Trans­fer Pro­to­col Secure” (https). The con­nec­tion between your browser and our server is encrypt­ed.

6. Processing purposes

General: Pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the company, pro­vi­si­on of ser­vices and/or sale of pro­ducts and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on via the Inter­net. The purpose of the data pro­ces­sing on this website is the infor­ma­ti­on about pro­ducts and ser­vices of our company with the pos­si­bi­li­ty of the users to contact the contact persons in the house in a tar­ge­ted manner.

6.1. General

Insofar as you have pro­vi­ded us with per­so­nal data, we will use it to these to answer your inqui­ries, to advise you and process con­tracts con­cluded with you and for tech­ni­cal admi­nis­tra­ti­on. Your per­so­nal data will only be passed on to third parties or other­wi­se trans­fer­red if this is neces­sa­ry for the purpose of con­tract pro­ces­sing or for billing pur­po­ses or if you have given your prior consent. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future (see right of revo­ca­ti­on).

The legal basis for the coll­ec­tion, pro­ces­sing and for­war­ding of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO in the context of the exe­cu­ti­on of the con­tract.

The dele­ti­on of this data takes place after the expiry of the appli­ca­ble sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on obli­ga­ti­ons. If we are not subject to any sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on obli­ga­ti­ons, the data will be deleted when the purpose ceases to apply.

You have the right to infor­ma­ti­on and the right to object to your data stored by us at any time. You can find further infor­ma­ti­on under “Data subject rights” and “Right of revo­ca­ti­on”.

6.2. Server data collection

Purpose of pro­ces­sing

When you visit our site, various server sta­tis­tics are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly stored, which your browser trans­mits to our provider’s server: Among other things, the IP address of your device, date and time of access, name and URL of acces­sed files, website from which access is made or from which you were direc­ted to our site (refer­rer URL), browser used and, if appli­ca­ble, the ope­ra­ting system of your device and the name of your pro­vi­der are logged.

The afo­re­men­tio­ned data is pro­ces­sed by us for the purpose of smooth con­nec­tion estab­lish­ment and system secu­ri­ty. A com­bi­na­ti­on of this data with other data sources is not made. The IP address is anony­mi­zed. The acc­ruing con­nec­tion data is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly deleted; usually after a maximum of seven days. If the website is misused, log data whose further storage is neces­sa­ry for evi­den­tia­ry pur­po­ses will be retai­ned until the inci­dent has been cla­ri­fied.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and § 25 para. 2 TTDSG (here, however, only data such as browser or header infor­ma­ti­on that is trans­mit­ted ine­vi­ta­b­ly or due to (browser) set­tings of the ter­mi­nal device when calling up our website). This is not to be con­side­red as “acces­sing infor­ma­ti­on that is already stored in the ter­mi­nal device”. Our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest accor­ding to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO arises from the fact that we want to ensure secure ope­ra­ti­on of the website and detect any attacks.

6.3. Cookies

Purpose of pro­ces­sing
This site does not use cookies by default. Cookies are data records (which used to be just small text files) that are stored in your Inter­net browser (e.g. Firefox, Google Chrome, Micro­soft Explorer/Edge, Safari, etc.) or by it on your com­pu­ter (i.e. your ope­ra­ting system) when you visit our site. With the help of the cookie, which con­ta­ins a certain string of cha­rac­ters and pos­si­bly further infor­ma­ti­on, our website reco­gni­zes your Inter­net browser when you call it up again. We use our own cookies, so-called session cookies. These are used to manage the use of the website via a login area. These cookies are only valid for the dura­ti­on of your browser session and are deleted when you end your visit to our site.


The legal basis for our own cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest results from the fact that we only faci­li­ta­te the retrie­va­bi­li­ty of the page for you with the afo­re­men­tio­ned cookies, do not collect any track­ing data in the process and thus no inter­fe­rence with your per­so­nal rights and fun­da­men­tal free­doms takes place.


You can exclude the accep­tance of cookies in your web browser. However, this may pos­si­bly lead to impairm­ents in func­tion­a­li­ty.

The fol­lo­wing cookies are used due to legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests:

6.4. Contact form and request by e‑mail

Purpose of pro­ces­sing

When using our contact form, we collect and store the name and e‑mail address for the purpose of respon­ding to your inquiry. The spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on of the tele­pho­ne number for a call­back is optio­nal. If you send us a contact request by e‑mail, we collect and store the e‑mail address and the data con­tai­ned in the e‑mail.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO, since you consent to the above-men­tio­ned pro­ces­sing of your data when using the form as well as sending an e‑mail. In addi­ti­on, the legal basis also arises from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, since the storage of data is neces­sa­ry for the ful­fill­ment of a pre-con­trac­tu­al or pos­si­bly later con­trac­tu­al rela­ti­onship.

The dele­ti­on of the data takes place when the purpose of the storage has ceased to exist, i.e. after ans­we­ring your e‑mail/contact form inquiry or when the matter related to the inquiry has been finally cla­ri­fied.

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time without affec­ting the lawful­ness of the pro­ces­sing carried out on the basis of the consent.

You can find infor­ma­ti­on on the right to dele­ti­on and infor­ma­ti­on under “Data subject rights”.

6.5. Map display through Google Maps

Purpose of pro­ces­sing

You can display a map after giving your consent to the data trans­fer. If you want to see the Google Maps map on this page, we need your consent accor­ding to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG which you can give and by cli­cking on “Yes, share data and load map on this page.”. Per­so­nal data will then also be trans­fer­red to the ope­ra­tor of the map, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphi­theat­re Parkway, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA; and cookies are set by the ope­ra­tor. The­r­e­fo­re, it is pos­si­ble that the pro­vi­der stores your acces­ses and can analyze your beha­vi­or.

The privacy policy of Google Maps can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Notice on pro­ces­sing of your data coll­ec­ted on this website in the USA by Google: By cli­cking on “Yes, share data and load map on this page.”, you consent at the same time accor­ding to Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO that your data will be pro­ces­sed in the USA. The USA is asses­sed by the Euro­pean Court of Justice as a country with an insuf­fi­ci­ent level of data pro­tec­tion accor­ding to EU stan­dards. In par­ti­cu­lar, there is a risk that your data may be pro­ces­sed by US aut­ho­ri­ties for control and moni­to­ring pur­po­ses, pos­si­bly also without any legal remedy.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO in con­junc­tion with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, your consent.

Revo­ca­ti­on option

Consent is only valid once and is imme­dia­te­ly dis­card­ed for further visits to the site.

6.6. Use of Matomo Track­ing

Purpose of pro­ces­sing

The web ana­ly­tics service Matomo (Piwik) is used on this website. No track­ing cookies are used for this purpose. If you do not agree with the storage and ana­ly­sis of this data from your visit, then you can object to the storage and use below at any time by mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie will be placed in your browser, which means that Matomo will not collect any session data. For this purpose, a session cookie is also set when you visit this sub-page to manage the opt-out. Please note that the com­ple­te dele­ti­on of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie is also deleted and may have to be reac­ti­va­ted by you.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) DSGVO. Our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest arises from the fact that we make adjus­t­ments for opti­miza­ti­on and mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses as well as for secu­ri­ty based on the sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis of user beha­vi­or.


Pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­tion

A session cookie is set to manage the objec­tion.
