Privacy Policy

General information
The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as this Data Protection Declaration.

A range of personal data is collected when you use this website. Personal data means data with which you can be personally identified. The present Data Protection Declaration explains what data we collect and what we use this for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We draw your attention to the fact that the transfer of data over the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security loopholes. The seamless protection of data from third-party access is not possible.

The following information provides an overview of how your personal data is handled when you visit our website. For detailed information on the topic of data protection, please see our Data Protection Declaration presented below this text.

Data Protection Declaration

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
Data processing on this website is performed by the website operator. His contact details are set out in the legal notice of this website.

How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you report this to us. This may constitute, for example, data that you enter in a contact form. This data is provided on a voluntary basis. We use the data you make available to us merely to process your enquiry, and erase this thereafter. Please note that your entries in the contact form are transferred without encryption and that viewing or alteration by third parties cannot be excluded.

Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when the website is visited. This relates above all to technical data (for example internet browser, operating system or time of the website visit). This data is collected automatically, as soon as you enter our website.
This comprises

  • version of the browser software
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server enquiry
  • content of the request
  • transferred data volume
  • IP (anonymised)

The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, securing and optimising the service.

Contact form
If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

Hence, the processing of the data entered into the contact form occurs exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without 6 / 11 prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods.

On 25/05/2018 the new EU “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) came into effect. This requires us to provide you with data about the information we collect and store about your company.

We therefore would like to inform you that we collect and store solely corporate data (contact name, addresses, telephone numbers, E -mail addresses) as well as a description of corporate departments. We also store data regarding business transactions (quotes, orders, invoices etc.), all of which are necessary for a correct order processing.

The types of data listed above are fundamental to a business relationship and are used solely for this purpose. The data is protected against unauthorized access and only accessible to those employees or third parties who have a relevant business interest.

In order to continue sending you non-binding quotes and also to maintain our business relationship, we hereby notify you that we will continue to use and store the data listed above.

If you have any objection to your data being stored or offers being sent, we would ask you to contact us at: We will subsequently remove your personal data from our database and for the future refrain from sending you offers and quotes. Please note that only objections in writing will be processed.

We trust that you understand our need to inform correctly and apologize for any inconvenience caused. We look forward to further successful business dealings with your company.

What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected in order to ensure that the website is provided without error. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights to your data do you have?
You have the right at any time to obtain free information about the origin, recipients and purpose of your saved personal data. You also have the right to demand the rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. If you have any questions about this, or questions on other aspects of data protection, you may contact us at any time using the address provided in the legal notice. In addition, you have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority

Your surfing behaviour may be evaluated when you visit our website. This is done above all with cookies and with so-called analysis programs. As a rule, your surfing behaviour is performed anonymously; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent this by not using specific tools. Detailed information is set out in the following Data Protection Declaration.

Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing procedures are possible only with your express consent. You may revoke consent that has already been given at any time. An informal e-mail sent to us will suffice. The lawfulness of the data processing performed before consent is revoked will not be affected by the revocation.

Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of statutory data protection breaches, data subjects have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for statutory data protection issues is the regional data protection officer of the federal German state in which our company has its registered domicile.

SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Objection to marketing mails
Use of the contact details published within the context of the obligatory legal notice to send advertising and written information that has not been expressly requested is herewith contradicted. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal measures in the event of the unrequested forwarding of marketing information, for example in the form of spam e-mails.

Data processing in conjunction with application procedures
We process and use your personal data to process your application. You can send your application details to us by e-mail. Please note that if you send your application electronically, the e-mail will be sent without encryption and that the data may, under certain circumstances, be viewed or even altered by unauthorised parties. Alternatively, you are also welcome to send your documents to us by post. If you have applied for a specific position, and this has already been filled or we deem you to be equally or more suitable for another position, then we would like to forward your application within our company. Please let us know if you do not consent to this procedure. After the application process has ended, although at the latest after 12 months, your personal data will automatically be deleted, unless you expressly approve the storage thereof for a longer period.
