When using the contact form, we collect personal data (individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person) only to the extent provided by you.

Collection, processing and use of personal data
We collect personal data (individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person) only to the extent provided by you.
Your personal data is processed and used to fulfill and process your order and to process your inquiries.
After the contract has been completed, all personal data will first be stored, taking into account the retention periods under tax and commercial law, and then deleted after the period has expired, unless you have consented to further processing and use.
Use of the e-mail address for sending newsletters
Irrespective of contract processing, we use your e-mail address exclusively for our own advertising purposes for sending newsletters, provided you have expressly consented to this.
Your declaration of consent to be submitted in this regard is as follows:
“Subscribe to Newsletter”.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by sending us a message. You can find the contact details for this in our imprint.
Your e-mail address will then be deleted from the mailing list.
Use of email address for sending direct mail
Unless you have objected, we use your e-mail address, which we received as part of the sale of goods or services, for the electronic transmission of advertising for our own goods or services that are similar to those that you have already purchased from us to have. You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending us a message. The contact details for exercising the objection can be found in the imprint. You can also use the link provided for this purpose in the advertising email. There are no costs for this other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.
Disclosure of Personal Data
Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. The only exceptions to this are our service partners, which we need to process the contractual relationship. In these cases, we strictly observe the requirements of the Federal Data Protection Act. The amount of data transmission is limited to a minimum.
Our website uses at several locations so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Furthermore, cookies enable our systems to recognize your browser and offer you services. Cookies do not contain personal data.
Use of Google Inc.’s remarketing or “Similar Audiences” function.
The provider uses the remarketing or “similar target groups” function of Google Inc. (“Google”) on the website. Using this function, the provider can target visitors to the website with advertising by placing personalized, interest-based advertising ads for visitors to the provider’s website when they visit other websites in the Google Display Network. Google uses so-called cookies to carry out the analysis of website usage, which forms the basis for the creation of interest-based advertisements. For this purpose, Google saves a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the website visitors. This number is used to record visits to the website and anonymous data on website use. There is no storage of personal data of visitors to the website. If you then visit another website in the Google Display Network, you will be shown advertisements that are highly likely to take into account previously accessed product and information areas.
Use of Google Adwords conversion tracking
We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
If you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification.
If you visit certain web pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites.
The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Here, customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly (deactivation option). You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Further information and Google’s data protection declaration can be found at: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we would like to point out to you however that in this case you will if applicable not be able to use all functions of this website in full. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install [http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].
Use of social plug-ins via “Shariff”
So that you retain control of your data, data protection-safe “Shariff” buttons are used on this website to integrate the sharing functions of the social media services. Without your express consent, no links to the servers of the social networks are created and consequently no data transmitted.
“Shariff” is a development by the specialists at the computer magazine c’t. It enables more privacy on the web and replaces the usual “share” buttons on social networks. More information about the Shariff project can be found here.
If you click on the button, a pop-up window appears in which you can log in to the respective provider with your data. Only after you have actively logged in will a direct connection to the social networks be established.
By logging in, you give your consent to the transfer of your data to the respective social media provider. Among other things, both your IP address and information about which of our websites you have visited are transmitted. If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the information collected will also be assigned to your corresponding profiles. You can only prevent this assignment by logging out of your social media accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons.
Access, rectification, blocking and deletion of data
You have the right to free information about your stored data and the right to correction, deletion or blocking at any time. Contact us if you wish. The contact details can be found in our imprint.
