4. Collection of data on our website


Some of the web pages use “cookies”. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser during your next visit to our site.

You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are being placed and to only allow cookies on a case-by-case basis, to refuse cookies in certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the full functionality of this website.

Cookies that are required for execution of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain features requested by you (e.g. shopping cart feature) are saved based on Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically smooth and optimised provision of their services. Where other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis of your browsing behaviour) are stored, these are addressed separately in this data privacy notice.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files which your browser automatically sends to us. This information includes the following:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server query
  • IP address

This data is not combined with other data sources.

The data processing is based on Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we will store your data from the enquiry form, including the contact data specified there by you for processing the enquiry and in case follow-up questions arise. We will not pass such information on without your consent.

In this manner, the data entered by you in the contact form will only be processed based on your consent (Art. 6(1) point (a) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do so, sending us an informal message by email is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing operations based on consent before its withdrawal shall remain unaffected.

The data entered by you in the contact form (company or private person, first name, surname, company, telephone, email address, address, country, your message for us) will remain with us until you ask us to erase them, withdraw your consent to their storage, or the purpose for the data storage ceases to apply (e.g. after completed processing of your enquiry). Imperative legal provisions – particularly retention periods – shall remain unaffected.
