3. Data collection on our website
Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer  and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more  user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that  are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies.“ They are  automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your  device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to  recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies  so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or  reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to  automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always  reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your  browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to  provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart)  are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The  website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to  ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other  cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also  stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information  that your browser automatically transmits to us in „server log files“.  These are:
  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows  the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary  to a contract.
Contact form
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect  the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide,  to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share  this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form  only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your  consent at any time. An informal email making this request is  sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still  be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you  request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the  purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your  request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding  mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
4. Plugins and tools
Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts  provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the  required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts  correctly.
For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to  Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was  accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the  interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This  constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
