Privacy made simple
Instead of wasting your time with boring legal texts we would much rather promise you one thing:
We have great respect for your data, your trust and your satisfaction. Treating you just like we ourselves wish to be treated means far more to us than all this legal jibberish.
It basically means the following:
- We only collect minimal data that is required to deliver our service to you
- We will never give your data to third parties
- We will do our very best to keep any data safe
We’re also big on complete transparency. So please feel free to approach us with any issue. You will receive a personal answer and a solution that same day – guaranteed!
The following notes will give you a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website. Personal information is any information that personally identifies you. You will find detailed information on the subject of data protection in this data protection declaration.
How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected by you communicating it to us yourself. This can be, for example, a contact form or a registration.
Other data is collected automatically by our systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. browser, operating system, country or time). This data is collected automatically as soon as you visit our website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data is collected automatically so that the website can be displayed without errors in the first place. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to obtain information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact our data protection officer.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
When you visit this website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done using cookies and analysis programs, among other things. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can reject this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Read more about this in this privacy statement.
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations.
If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy statement explains what information we collect and what we use it for.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Data protection officer
Responsible for the data processing on this website is:
Revocation of your consent
Many processes we process anyway only with your explicit consent. Of course, you can revoke your consent at any time. A simple e-mail to us, which we will answer on the same day, is sufficient.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of your data, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, we use SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize this encrypted connection by the lock symbol in the browser line and the https marking.
If this SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the scope of applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. Please contact our data protection officer.
Cookies (not edible)
Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies only serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them manually.
You can also set your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, however, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
Cookies which are necessary for the performance of the electronic communication process or for the provision of our services (e.g. registration) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As a website provider, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of our services.
Server log files
Our provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser automatically transmits. This includes
Browser and Version
Hostname of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing and use of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. Of course, we will never pass on this data without your explicit consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. A simple e-mail, which we answer on the same day, is sufficient.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, you revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after the processing of the request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions such as retention periods remain unaffected.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This will cause Google to shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the United States. Only in a few exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf as the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services to website operators in connection with website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. A so-called “Opt-Out-Cookie” is set, which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics of Google Analytics
This website uses the function “demographic features” of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and visitor data from third parties. This information cannot be associated with any specific individual. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as described under “Objection to data collection”.
Our website uses the visitor action pixel of Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) to measure conversion.
This allows us to track the behavior of site visitors after they are redirected to the provider’s Web site by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and to optimize future advertising efforts.
The data collected is anonymous to us as the operator of this website, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines. This allows Facebook to enable advertisements to be placed on Facebook pages and outside Facebook. This use of data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.
See Facebook’s Privacy Notice for more information about protecting your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
You can also disable the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” in the Advertisement Settings section of https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You must be logged in to Facebook to do this.
If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable Facebook’s usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and never pass it on to third parties.
The data entered in the newsletter registration form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use to send the newsletter at any time, for example via the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have provided us with to receive the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe and deleted after you unsubscribe. This does not affect data that we have stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area).
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube page operated by Google. The site is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. This will tell the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you will be able to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile on YouTube. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube videos are used in the interest of an appealing and useful presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Further information on the handling of user data can be found in YouTube’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Our website uses plugins of the video portal Vimeo. Provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
When you visit one of our sites equipped with a Vimeo plugin, you will be connected to Vimeo’s servers. This will tell the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. Vimeo also sees your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information collected by Vimeo is transferred to the Vimeo server in the USA.
If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
Google Web Fonts
This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This will allow Google to know that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
Our site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As a site operator, we have no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy retrievability of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google’s data protection declaration: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
Payment service provider
On this page different interfaces for the processing of payments are installed. Payments are processed via accounts and servers of the online payment service providers PayPal or Stripe. The processing takes place via user accounts with the respective payment service provider or payments with credit cards.
If you choose one of these payment options during the payment process on our site, your data will be transmitted to these payment service providers for processing the payment. By selecting this payment option, you consent to the transfer of your personal data required for payment processing.
The data transmitted to PayPal or Stripe is first name, surname, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data required for secure payment processing. Data in connection with the order are also necessary.
PayPal and Stripe may forward the personal data to companies and service providers if this is necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations or if the data is to be processed by order.
You have the possibility to revoke your consent to the handling of personal data at PayPal or Stripe at any time. A revocation, however, does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
