Data Protection Declaration

Unless stated otherwise below, the provision of your personal data is neither legally nor contractually obligatory, nor required for conclusion
of a contract. You are not obliged to provide your data. Not providing it will have no consequences. This only applies as long as the
processing procedures below do not state otherwise.
“Personal data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Server log files
You can use our websites without submitting personal data.
Every time our website is accessed, user data is transferred to us or our web hosts/IT service providers by your internet browser and stored
in server log files. This stored data includes for example the name of the site called up, date and time of the request, the IP address,
amount of data transferred and the provider making the request. The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) f) GDPR due to
our legitimate interests in ensuring the smooth operation of our website as well as improving our services.

Responsible person
Contact us at any time. The contact details of the person responsible for data processing can be found in our legal notice.

Proactive contact of the customer by e-mail
If you make contact with us proactively via email, we shall collect your personal data (name, email address, message text) only to the extent
provided by you. The purpose of the data processing is to handle and respond to your contact request.
If the initial contact serves to implement pre-contractual measures (e.g. consultation in the case of purchase interest, order creation) or
concerns an agreement already concluded between you and us, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.
If the initial contact occurs for other reasons, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR for the purposes of our
overriding, legitimate interest in handling and responding to your request. In this case, on grounds relating to your particular situation,
you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out on the basis of Article
6(1)(f) GDPR.
We will only use your email address to process your request. Your data will subsequently be deleted in compliance with statutory retention
periods, unless you have agreed to further processing and use.

Collection and processing when using the contact form
When you use the contact form we will only collect your personal data (name, email address, message text) in the scope provided by you.
The data processing is for the purpose of making contact.
If the initial contact serves to implement pre-contractual measures (e.g. consultation in the case of purchase interest, order creation) or
concerns an agreement already concluded between you and us, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.
If the initial contact occurs for other reasons, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR for the purposes of our
overriding, legitimate interest in handling and responding to your request. In this case, on grounds relating to your particular situation,
