Collection, processing and use of personal data
The legal basis for the collection, storage and processing of personal data can be found, in particular, in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in the Federal Data Protection Law (BDSG). Personal data is information referring to an identified or identifiable natural person (art. 4 no. 1 GDPR). In particular, this includes names, address data, telephone numbers or email addresses. But information on preferences, memberships or e.g. websites visited in the past can also represent personal data.
Server log files
At the occasion of every access to our website by a user, information is saved by our hosting provider in a log file. These log files contain information about the date and the time of the website access, accessed files/pages, status codes and system information such as browser, operating system and language and version of the browser interface. These data do not allow for any direct conclusion with respect to the concrete person.
Besides, IP addresses are also saved in log files. For us, it is not possible to attribute them to any particular person without further aid.
If you want to view our website, we collect the above-mentioned data, which are technically required for us to show you the website and to ensure stability and security. The legal basis for the processing is the necessity in order to preserve our justified interests according to art. 6 sec. 1 f) GDPR.
As far as you contact us (e.g. per email), the data transmitted by you will be saved to process your inquiry and possibly to process any subsequent questions. The legal basis for the processing is the necessity for the execution of pre-contractual measures according to art. 6 sec. 1 b) GDPR. The data collected in this context will be deleted by us after their storage is no longer required, or their processing is limited by us if there are any legal retention duties.
Vis-à-vis us, you have the following rights with respect to the personal data concerning you:
- right to information,
- right to correction or deletion,
- right to restriction of processing,
- right to objection to processing,
- right to data portability.
In addition, you have the right to complain about the processing of your personal data by us to a data protection supervisory authority.
Objection to or revocation of the processing of your data
Please note that you can revoke any granted approval for the processing of your data anytime. From the moment of being informed about your revocation, the admissibility of the processing of your personal data is impacted.
As far as we found the processing of your personal data on a weighting of interests within the meaning of art. 6 sec. 1 f) GDPR, you can object to the processing. This is the case, in particular, if the processing is not necessary to fulfil a contract with you (you can find the legal bases of the individual cases of data processing in this privacy statement). When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the respective reasons. In case of a justified objection, we will check the facts and will either stop / adapt the data processing or explain our compulsory reasons worthy of protection to you on the basis of which we continue the processing.
Besides, you can object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis anytime. You can inform us on your advertising objection using the above-mentioned contact data.
Forwarding to third parties
We forward your personal data to third parties only as far as this is necessary to fulfil contracts (e.g. address data to our logistic service providers). The legal basis for the transmission is the necessity for the fulfilment of a contract according to art. 6 sec. 1 b) GDPR. No personal data will be forwarded to any third parties for purposes of marketing or advertising without your express consent.

This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The supplier is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. The data you provide (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter will be stored on CleverReach servers in Germany.
Sending our newsletters with CleverReach enables us to analyze the behavior of newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can find out how many recipients have opened the email containing the newsletter and how often various links contained therein are clicked. With the help of conversion tracking, we can also analyze whether a predefined action (such as the purchase of a product on our website) takes place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on how data is analyzed by CleverReach, please visit https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by CleverReach, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of CleverReach. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.
Completion of an outsourced data processing contract
We have entered into an agreement with CleverReach for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using CleverReach.
