Access to and storage of information in terminal equipment
By using our website, you may access information (e.B. IP address) or store information (e.B. cookies) in your terminal equipment. This access or storage may involve further processing of personal data within the meaning of the GDPR.
In cases where such access to information or such storage of information is absolutely necessary for the technically error-free provision of our services, this is done on the basis of § 25 para. 1 sentence 1, para. 2 No. 2 TTDSG.
In cases where such a process serves other purposes (e.B the needs-based design of our website), this is done on the basis of § 25 para. 1 TTDSG only with your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time for the future. The processing of your personal data is subject to the provisions of the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
Further information on the processing of your personal data and the relevant legal bases in this context can be found in the following sections on the specific processing activities on our website.
This website is hosted by an external service provider (Hereweare). This website is hosted in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster’s servers. These may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, website access and other data generated via a website.
We collect the listed data in order to ensure a smooth connection to the website and a technically error-free provision of our services. The processing of this data is strictly necessary in order to make the website available to you. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in the correct presentation and functionality of our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Server log files
When you or an automated system access this website, information is automatically collected and stored in so-called server log files. Your web browser automatically transmits this technically necessary and security-relevant information to our web server. The data is recorded during a running connection. These are:
- Date and time of the server request
- Referrer URL, i.e. the website from which an accessing system reaches our website
- Sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website
- Access Status
- Web browser used and browser version used
- Operating system used
- Internet service provider of the accessing system
- IP address
- other similar data and information used to avert danger in the event of attacks
We collect the listed data in order to correctly deliver the content of our website, to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, to ensure the long-term system security and stability of our website and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. For reasons of technical security, in particular to ward off attack attempts on our web server, this data is stored by us for a short time. On the basis of this data, it is not possible for us to draw conclusions about data subjects. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. In anonymous form, the data may also be processed for statistical purposes. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user, a comparison with other data stocks or a transfer to third parties takes place at no time.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Cookies differ in their storage period:
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your website visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal equipment until they are automatically deleted after a certain period of time or you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
Cookies differ in their function:
Essential cookies are technically necessary to make our website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation, language setting, shopping cart function and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies. Essential cookies are first-party cookies. Your consent is not required for the use of essential cookies. Essential cookies cannot be disabled on our website.
The processing of data through the use of essential cookies takes place on the basis of a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR to the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services. For details on the processing purposes and legitimate interests, please refer to the explanations on the specific data processing.
Other cookies are used to analyze user behavior, display advertising or display certain tools (e.B videos, showroom, map service Google Maps).
The processing of personal data through the use of these cookies takes place on the basis of consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time and for the future. Insofar as such cookies are used for analysis and optimization purposes, we will inform you separately in the context of this data protection declaration and give your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Contact form and contact by e-mail
If you send us inquiries via contact form or e-mail, your details from the inquiry form or your e-mail, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions. The provision of an e-mail address, your name and your company is required to provide contact. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent.
Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and, if applicable, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is aimed at the conclusion of a contract. The data provided by you in the contact form or in your e-mail will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.B. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected. You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Transfers to third countries
If we collect data in a third country (d. h. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or this is done in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this will only take place if it is done to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or have the data processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are met. This means that the processing takes place e.B. on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU (e.B. for the USA through the “Privacy Shield”) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).
