DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT
We are pleased to note that you are interested in our company. We would like you to feel reassured that your data are also protected when visiting our websites. It goes without saying that we comply with the provisions of the German Data Protection Act.
Personal data are information on your identity. Examples include details such as name, address, telephone number and email address. It is not necessary for you to divulge personal data in order to use our website. In certain cases, however, we need your name, your address and further details so that we can provide the required services.
The same applies to sending out information materials, for example, or to answering individual enquiries. We will duly inform you if this is necessary. In addition to this, we will only save and process data with which you provide us voluntarily and, if applicable, any data that we collect automatically during a visit to our websites (e.g. your IP address and the names of the pages accessed by you, of the browser used by you and of your operating system, date and time of access, search machines used, names of downloaded files).
As a rule, such data are only collected if they are necessary to provide those services of which you make use. Any further data we may request is information given on a voluntary basis. Personal data are processed purely for the purposes of providing the service required and to protect our own legitimate business interests.
PURPOSE OF PERSONAL DATA
We generally use the personal data you provide to answer your enquiries, to process your orders or to give you access to specific information or offers. It may also be necessary for us or a service provider commissioned by us to use these personal data for the purposes of customer relationship management, in order to inform you of product offers or to conduct online surveys so that we can meet the requirements and requests of our customers more effectively. We will not sell your personal data to third parties or market them elsewhere.
We will only collect, process and use personal data made available by you online for the purposes advised. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

This information serves to recognise you automatically the next time you visit our websites and to facilitate navigation for you. Cookies enable us to adapt a website to your interests, for example, or to save your password so there is no need for you to re-enter it every time. You can of course view our websites without cookies as well. If you would prefer us not to recognise your computer, you can prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by setting your browser to “not accept cookies”. Please refer to the instructions of your browser service provider for specific details of how this works. Should you choose not to accept cookies, however, this may lead to restricted functions in our products and services.
