Data protection is a matter of trust and your trust is important to us. We respect your privacy and personal sphere. The protection and the lawful collection, processing and use of your personal data is therefore an important concern for us. To ensure that you feel secure when visiting our website, we strictly observe the legal provisions when processing your personal data and would like to inform you here about our data collection and data use.
We are committed to complying with the GDPR and the national data protection laws. For us, data protection is a corporate matter of high priority and we only work with partners who can also demonstrate an appropriate level of data protection within your processing framework. We only process your data if you have given us your express consent, if this is based on a contract or pre-contractual measures on a service basis or if the relevant laws permit or require data processing. The following data protection information covers both the currently applicable national legal framework and the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) valid throughout Europe from 25 May 2018. References to legal bases of the GDPR will apply from 25 May 2018. Under no circumstances will we sell your data or pass them on to unauthorised third parties. We would be pleased to inform you in detail about the handling of your data in our divisions.

II. General information on data processing
1. Scope of processing of personal data
We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place routinely only with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
3. Data erasure and storage time
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
III. Provision of the website and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing
Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data is collected:Information about the browser type and version usedThe user's operating systemThe user's Internet service providerThe IP address of the userDate and time of accessWebsites from which the user's system reaches our website Websites accessed by the user's system through our websiteCountry and language settings of the browser (control page)
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
These purposes also constitute our justified interest in processing personal data as per Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
4. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the event that data is collected in order to make the website available, this is the case once each session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this will happen after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
5. Right to objection and removal

These are temporary/permanent cookies that are automatically deleted after a specified time. These temporary or permanent cookies (lifetime 14 days to 10 years) are stored on your hard disk and delete themselves after the specified time. The cookies of our partner companies also only contain pseudonymous mostly even anonymous data. This includes, for example, data on which products you have looked at, whether something was purchased, which products were searched for, and so on. Some of our advertising partners also collect information about which pages you have previously visited or which products you were interested in, for example, in order to be able to show you the advertising that best suits your interests. These pseudonymous data will never be combined with your personal data. Their sole purpose is to enable our advertising partners to address you with advertising that might actually be of interest to you.
