The personal data from the input fields is only used by us to process the contact request. In the case of contact being made via email, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
The newsletter provides regular updates on interesting offers, news, and stories about the company. The legal basis for the processing of the data is the existence of consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a GDPR.

Planned data transfer to third party countries
There is currently no data transfer to third party countries, and this is not planned in the future.
We use so-called “cookies” on our website. These are small text files that are sent by our web server to your computer to identify it for the duration of your visit. We do not collect personal data through these cookies.
You can also view our website without the storage of cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser settings, or adjust your settings to inform you every time a website attempts to store cookies. In this case, you may decide whether to accept cookies in each instance. However, for technical reasons, the unrestricted use of temporary cookies is necessary to ensure the full functionality of our website.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (Google). Through this tool, data is collected and stored from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. These user profiles are used to analyse visitor behaviour and are evaluated to improve and better tailor our products to your needs.
Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and permit the analysis of your use of the website. The information on your use of this website (including parts of your IP Address) gathered by the cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to generate reports on website activity for the website provider and to perform additional services related to the use of the website and Internet use. Google may also pass this information on to third parties in so far as is prescribed by law or where third parties are processing the data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with any other Google data. We will not combine the pseudonymous user profiles with personal data concerning the user of the pseudonym without the express consent of the person concerned, which is to be granted separately. Data collection for usage statistics and transmission to google takes place with the extended code “gat._anonymizeIp();” The capture of IP addresses is thus anonymised (so-called IP masking).
You can object to the collection, use and storage of data for the purpose of web analytics at any time with future effect by preventing the installation of cookies. This is done by setting your browser software accordingly; however, please be aware that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.
You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing data on your use of the website (including parts of your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Our website uses the analytics service etracker. The provider is etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg. This data can be used to generate user profiles under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files which are saved locally in the your web browser cache. These cookies enable us to identify your browser on your next visit. Without the explicit consent of the individual concerned, data collected by etracker technologies is not used to identify visitors to this website, and is not merged with personal data concerning the individual bearing the pseudonym.
You can object to the collection and storage of data at any time with future effect. In order to object to the collection and storage of your visitor data, you can request an opt-out cookie from etracker via the following link. This will ensure that visitor data from your browser is not collected and stored by etracker in the future: http://www.etracker.de/privacy?et=V23Jbb
This sets an etracker cookie named “cntcookie”. Do not delete this cookie as long as you wish to maintain your objection. Further information on the data protection provisions at etracker can be found under: https://www.etracker.com/de/datenschutz.html.
We use technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data from accidental or wilful manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons.
Our security measures are continually improved in line with technical developments. Please note that despite all security measures, the transmission of data via the internet may lead to third parties intercepting or falsifying this data.
