In accordance with our legal obligation, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.


When you use our website, personal information about you is collected. This can be done by you entering the data on your own – such as your mail address. However, our system also collects data from you automatically, such as your visit to our website. This occurs regardless of the device or software with which you use our website.

Any entry of data by you on our website is voluntary, there are no disadvantages for you by not disclosing your data. Without certain data, however, it is not possible for us to provide services or conclude contracts.

On this website, personal data of the user is only collected within the framework of the applicable data protection law, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). The technical terms used in the text are explained in more detail in Art. 4 of the DSGVO.

Data processing is permitted under the DSGVO in three cases in particular:

according to Art. 6 (1) lit. a and 7 DSGVO, if you have consented to data processing by us; in each case, we will inform you in advance in this data protection declaration and on the occasion of the consent in accordance with Art. 4 No. 11 DSGVO exactly for what purpose and under what circumstances your data will be processed by us;
according to Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, if the processing of your personal data is necessary for the initiation, conclusion or execution of a contractual relationship;
according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, if, after a balancing of interests, the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this includes, in particular, our interests in analyzing, optimizing and securing the offer on our website – this includes, in particular, an analysis of user behavior, the creation of profiles for advertising purposes and the storage of access data, as well as the use of third-party providers.


If a change to the privacy policy becomes necessary for legal or factual reasons, we will update this page accordingly. In doing so, no changes will be made to the consents given by the user.



We collect inventory data (e.g. name, address and e-mail address, services used, if applicable) insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of a contractual relationship between us and the user.


We also collect usage data (e.g. visits to the website, interest in products) in order to enable and bill the user for the use of services on our website.

We will only aggregate usage data if and to the extent that this is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only create usage data pseudonymously and only if you have not objected to this. You can send this objection at any time to the address given in the imprint or to the responsible person named in this privacy policy.

The legal basis for this data processing is, on the one hand, our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in the analysis of the website and your use, and, if applicable, also the legal permission to store data as part of the initiation of a contractual relationship pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Furthermore, each time you use this website, our provider stores information, the so-called server log files, which are automatically transmitted by your browser. These are:

Your IP address
Type and version of your browser
Host name
time of visit
the page from which you visited our site
name of the page you visited,
exact time of the call and
the amount of data transferred.
This data is only used for statistical purposes and does not allow us to identify you as a user.


Before sending you advertising, we will ask you for your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 4 No. 11 DSGVO, unless it concerns advertising for similar products that you have already purchased. This is done in particular when you give us consent to send you our newsletter or when you fill out a contact form.


Where we ask for your consent to process your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible manner of the circumstances for which you are giving your consent. Any consent we ask for is voluntary, any benefit you wish to obtain by giving consent can be obtained without the consent, just ask us.

For any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us to process your personal data at any time. This can be done by an informal message, e.g. via our contact form, a mail to the mail address given in the imprint or an unsubscribe link (if offered by us). Your revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to that point.


In principle, your data will only be stored for as long as the purpose of the respective data processing requires. Further storage is mainly considered if this is still necessary for legal prosecution by us or for our other legitimate interests, or if we are required by law to retain your data (e.g. within the framework of tax retention periods).


When you enter data on our website, whether on a contact form, on the occasion of registration, logging in or for payment purposes, the website on which you enter the data is encrypted. This prevents third parties from reading what data you enter. You can recognize the encryption by the lock symbol in your browser and by the fact that the address line starts with “https” instead of just “http”.

be covered by a consent granted by you, or
become necessary if a state or public authority lawfully demands that we hand over your data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.


Our website uses external providers based outside the EU for various functions. This may result in the processing and storage of your data outside the EU, in particular through cookies, active Java scripts and other techniques. However, we will not transfer your data to a third country unless the EU Commission has determined that data protection is comparable to that in the EU or you have given us informed consent or we have agreed with the provider on the standard contractual clauses for the protection of your data. For the USA, adequate data protection has again been established under certain conditions with the Privacy Shield Agreement (see For more information about your rights in the event of any transfer of data to the USA mentioned below, please visit

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).


We use the Google Analytics tool from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94.043 USA as part of our legitimate interest in a technically flawless online offering and its economically efficient design and optimization pursuant to Art.6 (1) lit.f DSGVO. This allows the use of websites to be analyzed, and pseudonymous profiles of users can be created from the data. For this purpose, Google uses various techniques, including storing cookies on your computer. These store information about the use of our site, which we use to improve our offer.

The data collected by Google is transferred by Google to countries outside the EU, in particular the USA. Google has submitted to the Privacy Shield Framework, more information on your rights from this can be found at

We have taken additional precautions to ensure adequate protection of your data as far as possible. We anonymize your IP address before transferring it to Google. This was done by activating the Anonymizelp function within the Google Analytics tracking code.

Furthermore, we have concluded an order data processing agreement with Google, according to which Google will not merge your data with other data collected by Google in order to determine your identity.

If this is not sufficient for you, you can also download and install Google’s browser plugin for blocking Google Analytics under the link, which will block the collection and transfer of your personal data by Google.
