Most of the cookies which we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you erase them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser such that you are informed of the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The disabling of cookies can restrict the functionality of this website.
Cookies that are required for performing the electronic communication process or for providing specific functions you wish to use (e.g. shopping basket function) will be stored on the basis of DGPR Article 6 (1) (f). The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to provide its services in a technically sound and optimised manner. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, such are treated separately in this data privacy statement.
Server Log Files
The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. These are:
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of server request
This data will not be merged with other data sources.
These data will be processed on the basis of point b of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR which permits the processing of data for fulfilling a contract or implementing pre-contractual measures.
If you submit requests to us via the contact form, your details from the request form, including the contact details you provide in it, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your request and for asking any further questions we may have. We will not pass on these data without your consent.
Consequently, the data entered in the contact form shall only be processed on the basis of your consent (GDPR Article 6 (1) (f)). You may revoke this consent at any time. This can be done by sending us an informal e-mail message. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by said revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until such time as you ask us to erase them, withdraw your consent to store them or the purpose for which they are stored ceases to exist (e.g. after we have finished dealing with your request). This shall not affect any mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods.
