Cookies

 

Our website sometimes uses cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and safe. Cookies are small text files saved on your computer through your browser.

 

We primarily use so-called "session cookies" that will be deleted automatically when your visit ends. Other cookies will remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser during your next visit.

 

You can set your browser to notify you about cookies to be installed, to only allow cookies in certain cases, to disable cookies entirely or to delete cookies when you close your browser. However, disabling cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

 

Cookies required for electronic communication or for providing certain functions desired by you (e.g., shopping cart functions) are saved on the basis of Art. 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. The website operator has a legitimate interest in saving cookies to provide his services in a technically error-free and optimal manner. If other cookies (e.g., for analyzing your surfing behavior) are installed, they will be treated separately in this Privacy Policy.

 

Server Log Files

 

The website provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files transmitted to us automatically by your browser. These are the:

 

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time and date of the server request
  • IP address

 

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

 

The basis for data processing is Art. 6(1) Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or of pre-contractual measures.

 

Contact Form

 

If you submit an inquiry to us through our contact form, we will save the information and the contact details you provide via the contact form to process your inquiry and for any subsequent questions. We will not transfer this data without your consent.

 

Data entered into our contact form will therefore only be processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1) Letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation). You may revoke any consent you granted at any time. For this, an informal email to us will suffice. However, the legitimacy of data processing performed prior to this revocation will remain unaffected.

 

We will save any data you enter into our contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage or the data storage purpose ceases to apply (e.g., after completion of the processing of your inquiry). Applicable legal regulations—especially storage periods—will remain unaffected.
