Data protection

We store and process your data in compliance with the relevant legal provisions, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

You have the right to free information, correction, blocking and deletion of your stored data at any time. Please contact or send us your request by post to the address provided in the imprint.

If the website offers the possibility to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses, etc.), the disclosure of this data by the user takes place on an expressly voluntary basis.

We will not pass on your personal data, including your home address and email address, to third parties without your express consent, which can be revoked at any time. Excepted from this are our service partners who require the transmission of data to process the contract, including the ordering, delivery and payment processes (e.g. the shipping company commissioned with the delivery and the credit institution commissioned with the payment processing). In these cases, however, the scope of the data transmitted is limited to the minimum required.

We use technical and organizational security measures to protect the data we manage from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. However, we would like to point out that complete data security cannot be guaranteed when transmitting data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email).

By accessing our website, information about your visit may be stored on the server. The storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following information may be logged, for example, the URL of the access, the date and time of retrieval of the respective content, and the IP addresses of the requesting computers. This data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored.

Your personal data will not be used for marketing or advertising purposes unless you have expressly consented to such use.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required by law, or where third parties process the data on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

You may prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Use of Facebook plugins

This website uses plug-ins from the social network "Facebook", which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. You can recognise the Facebook plug-in by the Facebook logo or "Like button" on our page. You can find an overview of Facebook plug-ins here:

When you visit our pages, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server via the plug-in. This transmits to the Facebook server which of our websites you have visited using your IP address. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When you use the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the "Like" button, leaving a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in.

We would like to point out that as the provider of the pages we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook. Further information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy can be found in Facebook's privacy policy at

Use of the GooglePlus plugin

Our website uses the “+1” button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button is recognizable by the “+1” symbol on a white or colored background.

If you visit a page on our website that contains such a button, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Google servers. The content of the "+1" button is sent directly to your browser by Google and integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Google collects with the button. Data such as the IP address is only collected and processed for logged-in members.

If you are a Google Plus member and do not want Google to collect data about you via our website and link it to your member data stored by Google, you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our website.

For further information on the scope and purpose of data collection and the further use and processing of the data by Google as well as your rights and setting options to protect your privacy, please refer to Google's privacy policy for the "+1" button:
