Access data (server log files)
When you access our website, we automatically collect and store in so-called server log files access data that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- browser type and browser version of your PC
- Operating system used by your PC
- Referrer URL (source/reference from which you came to our website)
- Host name of the accessing computer
- date and time of the server request
- the IP address currently used by your PC (if applicable, in anonymized form)
In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer system.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Web analytics tools and advertising
Our website uses the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by cookies about your use of our website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address transmitted by your browser will not be merged with other data from Google.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is the consent you have given via the cookie consent tool in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics
Our website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics - as shown in the section "Objection to data collection".
We have concluded an order data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Data stored by Google at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymized or deleted after 14 months. For details, please see the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de
Objection to data collection
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link to disable Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. If you delete the cookies on your computer, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Google Tag Manager
Our website uses the Google Tag Manager from the provider Google. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The tool that implements the tags is a cookie-less domain and does not store any personal data. The tool takes care of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking
Our website uses Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords). Google Ads is an online advertising program of the provider Google.
Google Ads enables us to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising media on external websites and to determine how successful individual advertising measures are. This helps us to show you advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
Within the scope of Google Ads, we use so-called conversion tracking. The advertising material is delivered by Google via so-called "AdServers". For this purpose, we use so-called AdServer cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. These cookies enable Google to recognize your web browser. If you visit certain pages of our website when the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the specific ad and were redirected to this page.
Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Thus, the cookies cannot be tracked across Ads customers' websites. The following information is usually stored as analysis values for the cookie: unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed). The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Ads clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The aggregation of the collected data in your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged in your Google account (e.g., because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merging), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that we have an interest in the anonymized analysis of visitors to our website for advertising purposes in order to optimize both our web offering and our advertising.
Further information and the data protection provisions can be found in Google's data protection declaration at: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=de.
Our website uses the functions of Google Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick from the provider Google.
Google Remarketing analyzes your user behavior on our website in order to classify you in certain advertising target groups and then play suitable advertising messages to you when you visit other online offers (remarketing or retargeting).
The advertising target groups created with Google Remarketing can be linked with Google's cross-device functions so that interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device are also displayed to you on another of your devices. If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be served on any device on which you log in with your Google account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad targeting.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalized advertising in your Google account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The aggregation of the collected data in your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged in your Google account (e.g., because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merging), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that we have an interest in the anonymized analysis of visitors to our website for advertising purposes.
Our website uses Google AdSense, a service for integrating advertisements from the provider Google.
Google AdSense uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and used to display advertisements on our website that match our content and your interests. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). Through these web beacons, information about visitor traffic to our sites can be statistically analyzed for online marketing purposes.
The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of our website (including your IP address) and delivery of advertising formats will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This information may be passed on to third parties by Google. However, Google will not merge your IP address with other data that Google may have stored about you.
Insofar as you have given your consent, the storage and processing of personal data is based on this consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. We also have a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO in the analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both our website and our advertising.
The aggregation of the collected data in your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
We use "Google Fonts" (formerly "Google Web Fonts") on our website, a service provided by Google.
Google Fonts enables us to use external fonts, so-called Google Fonts. For this purpose, the required Google Font is loaded into the browser cache by your web browser when you call up our website. This is necessary so that your browser can display a visually improved representation of our texts. If your browser does not support this function, a standard font will be used by your computer for display.
The integration of Google Fonts is done by a server call, usually at a Google server in the USA. This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of your terminal device is also stored by Google. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected and processed by Google through the use of Google Fonts.
We use Google Fonts for optimization purposes, in particular to improve the use of our website for you and to make its design more user-friendly. This is our legitimate interest in the processing of the above data by the third-party provider. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Further information on Google Fonts can be found at https://fonts.google.com/, https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?hl=de-DE&csw=1.
Our website uses the tool WordPress Stats to statistically evaluate visitor traffic. WordPress Stats is a sub-function of the plugin Jetpack. Provider is Automattic Inc, 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110-4929, USA.
The storage of "WordPress Stats" cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both our website and our advertising.

If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, transmitted data including your contact information will be stored in order to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Storage period of comments
Comments and related data, such as IP addresses, are stored. The content remains on our website until it has been completely deleted or had to be deleted for legal reasons.
If you open a user account, you agree that your inventory data such as name, address and e-mail address as well as your usage data (user name, password) are stored. This gives you the opportunity to log in with your e-mail address and your personal password.
Use and forwarding of data
We will neither sell to third parties nor otherwise market the personal data that you provide to us, e.g. by e-mail (e.g. your name and address or your e-mail address).

SSL or TLS encryption
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests 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.
Personal data that has been communicated to us via our website is only stored until the purpose for which it was entrusted to us has been fulfilled. Insofar as retention periods under commercial and tax law must be observed, the storage period for certain data may be up to 10 years.
Data subject rights
With regard to the personal data concerning you, as a data subject, you have the following rights vis-à-vis the data controller in accordance with the statutory provisions:
Right of withdrawal
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. If the processing of your data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of data at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Article 7 (3) DSGVO. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. Storage of data for billing and accounting purposes remains unaffected by a revocation.
Right to information
In accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO, you have the right to request confirmation from us as to whether we are processing personal data relating to you. If such processing exists, you have the right to obtain information about your personal data processed by us, the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period or the criteria for determining the storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to processing, complaint to a supervisory authority, the origin of your data if it has not been collected from you by us, the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing that concern you, as well as your right to be informed about what guarantees exist in accordance with Article 46 of the GDPR in the event of onward transfer of your data to third countries.
Right to rectification
You have the right, in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO, to request at any time the immediate rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning you and/or the completion of your incomplete data.
Right to deletion
In accordance with Art. 17 DSGVO, you have the right to request the deletion of your personal data if one of the following reasons applies:
Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing;
You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing; or You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO;
The personal data have been processed unlawfully;
The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member State to which we are subject;
The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR;
However, this right does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary:
For the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which we are subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9(2)(h) and (i) and Art. 9(3) DSGVO;
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) DSGVO, insofar as the data subject right is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If we have made your personal data public and we are obliged to erase it in accordance with the above, we shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform data controllers processing the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to your personal data or copies or replications of such personal data, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of processing (blocking) of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data has happened / is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data - apart from being stored - may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
Right to information
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against us, we are obliged to inform all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. In accordance with Art. 19 DSGVO, you have the right to be informed about these recipients upon request.
Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling.
You have the right, pursuant to Art. 22 DSGVO, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.
This does not apply if the decision
is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us,
is permissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
is carried out with your express consent.
However, in the cases mentioned in (a) to (c), the decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
In the cases mentioned in (a) and (c), we take reasonable steps to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.
Right to data portability
If the processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DSGVO or Art. 9(2)(a) DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) DSGVO and is carried out with the help of automated processes, you have the right, pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and to transfer it to another controller or to request that it be transferred to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible.
Right of objection
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Article 21 (2) DSGVO).
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services - notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC - to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO.
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
The supervisory authority responsible for us is:
