Data for the Fulfilment of Our Contractual Obligations /
General Deletion Periods

We process personal data that we require to fulfil our contractual obligations, such as a name, address, e-mail address, ordered products, invoice and payment data. The collection of these data is necessary to conclude the contract. The data will be deleted after expiry of the warranty periods and statutory retention periods. The legal basis for processing these data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b) DSGVO because these data are required by us in order to fulfil our contractual obligations towards you.

Unless specifically stated otherwise, we only store personal data for as long as this is necessary to fulfil the purposes pursued.

In some cases, legislation stipulates the retention of personal data, for example, in tax or commercial law. In these cases, the data will only continue to be stored by us for these legal purposes, but will not be processed in any other way and will be deleted after expiry of the legal retention period.

Hosting and Log Files

Our website is hosted by Strato AG, with whom we have a contract for order processing. You can find the privacy policy of our host at

When you access our websites, the browser being used on your end device transmits a series of data, some of which are stored by our hosting provider in log files, automatically and without your intervention.

In the process, the following information is recorded

  • The IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Status code, number of bytes transmitted
  • Referrer URL (web address from which you have visited our domain)

We are not able to use the IP address to directly trace back information to you. Nevertheless the IP address is generally regarded as a personal characteristic. Our hosting provider anonymises the IP address after seven days at the latest; the log data provided to us by the hosting provider generally only contains anonymised IP addresses.

We and/or our hosting provider use this protocol data, without tracing them back to you or other profiling for statistical evaluations, for the purpose of the operation, security and optimization of our website, but also to anonymously record the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent and type of use of our website and services. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.


We use session cookies to optimise our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and is temporarily stored on your hard drive. This file as such contains a session ID, which can be used to trace various requests from your browser back to the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. One purpose they have is to enable use of a shopping cart function on several pages. Our legitimate interest in the use of cookies in accordance with Art 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 f) DSGVO is to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. You can set your browser so that you are notified in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide in individual cases whether you want to decline acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, or whether cookies should be prevented completely. This may restrict the functionality of the website.

E-mail Contact

If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we will process your data for handling the enquiry as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise. If data processing is carried out in order to perform pre-contractual measures, which are performed at your request, or, if you are already our customer, in order to perform the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b) DSGVO. We only process other personal data if you give your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) DSGVO) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO). A legitimate interest is, for example, to reply to your e-mails.


For integration and display of video content, our website uses plugins from YouTube. The video portal is provided by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When a page with an integrated YouTube plugin is called up, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which of our pages you have accessed. YouTube can trace your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile, if you are logged in to your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out beforehand. YouTube is used in order to present our online offers in an appealing way. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the scope of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Details on the handling of user data can be found in the YouTube privacy policy at

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyze the behavior patterns of website visitors. To that end, the website operator receives a variety of user data, such as pages accessed, time spent on the page, the utilized operating system and the user’s origin. Google may consolidate these data in a profile that is allocated to the respective user or the user’s device.
Google Analytics uses technologies that make the recognition of the user for the purpose of analyzing the user behavior patterns (e.g., cookies or device fingerprinting). The website use information recorded by Google is, as a rule transferred to a Google server in the United States, where it is stored.
This analysis tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of this website has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user patterns to optimize both, the services offered online and the operator’s advertising activities.

Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found here:
IP anonymization
On this website, we have activated the IP anonymization function. As a result, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states that have ratified the Convention on the European Economic Area prior to its transmission to the United States. The full IP address will be transmitted to one of Google’s servers in the United States and abbreviated there only in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google shall use this information to analyze your use of this website to generate reports on website activities and to render other services to the operator of this website that are related to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted in conjunction with Google Analytics from your browser shall not be merged with other data in Google’s possession.

Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland
The Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create any user profiles, does not store cookies, and does not carry out any independent analyses. It only manages and runs the tools integrated via it. However, the Google Tag Manager does collect your IP address, which may also be transferred to Google’s parent company in the United States.
The Google Tag Manager is used on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the quick and uncomplicated integration and administration of various tools on his website. If the relevant consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Data Security

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities. However, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible. To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we continually adapt to the state of the art of technology. We also do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disturbances, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers/storage systems used by us are regularly and carefully backed up.

Transfer of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries

In principle, we use your personal data only within our company.

If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the fulfilment of contracts (e.g. logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that transmission is necessary for the corresponding service. In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing (“order processing”), we contractually oblige data processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.

Any transfer of data to entities or persons outside the EU, not including the case mentioned in this statement under “YouTube”, shall not take place and is not planned.
