Purposes of data processing by the controller and third parties

We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those stated. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
– you have given your express consent, – the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, – the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation, – the processing is necessary for the protection of legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data.

Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by the various storage periods stipulated by law. Once the respective purpose no longer applies or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.


To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Order form

If you contact us with questions of any kind by e-mail or order form, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. This requires you to provide a valid e-mail address. This is used to assign the request and subsequently answer it. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. Personal data will be automatically deleted after your inquiry has been dealt with.

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt this privacy policy so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy policy will then apply to your next visit.
