General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website
Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure in terms of data protection. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that these countries may not guarantee a level of data protection comparable to that of the EU. For example, US companies are obligated to disclose personal data to security authorities without you being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, analyze, and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Revocation of consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent that has already been given at any time. The legality of data processing carried out until revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
RIGHT TO OBJECT TO DATA COLLECTION IN SPECIFIC CASES AND TO DIRECT ADVERTISING (ART. 21 GDPR) IF DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ARTICLE 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT, AT ANY TIME, FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION, TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA, INCLUDING PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE SPECIFIC LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING THAT OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS, AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES THE ASSERTION, EXERCISE, OR DEFENSE OF LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING, INCLUDING PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, particularly in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. This right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and have the right to transmit those data to another controller where technically feasible, provided that the processing is based on your consent or is necessary for the performance of a contract.
Information, erasure, and rectification
You have the right, in accordance with applicable laws, to obtain free-of-charge information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to rectification or erasure of these data. For this purpose, and for any further questions regarding personal data, you can always contact us.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time to exercise this right. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. During the verification period, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the data and instead request the restriction of their use.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you require them for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of their erasure.
- If you have objected to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If you have obtained the restriction of processing your personal data, except for storage, such data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21(1) of the GDPR, a balancing of interests must be conducted between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, except for storage, such data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses SSL/TLS encryption.

Our websites use so-called “cookies.” Cookies are small data packets that do not cause any damage to your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (persistent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Persistent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or automatic deletion by your web browser occurs. In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e.g., cookies for processing payment services). Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or displaying videos). Other cookies are used to analyze user behavior or display advertisements. Cookies that are necessary for the electronic communication process, to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g., shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e.g., cookies for measuring the web audience) are stored based on Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies and similar tracking technologies has been requested, the processing will be based exclusively on this consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR and § 25(1) of the German Telemedia Act). The consent can be revoked at any time. You can configure your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies, allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
When you submit inquiries to us via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent. The processing of this data is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, provided that your inquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in effectively processing the inquiries directed to us (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) or on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR) if requested; consent can be revoked at any time. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after the completion of processing your inquiry). Mandatory legal provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
