Data protection

Privacy policy

Data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find their contact details in the legal notice of this website.
As a user of our website, you will receive all the necessary information in this privacy policy about how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect data from you and use it. Your data is collected and used strictly in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We are particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits set by the legal requirements. This personal data is collected on a voluntary basis if this is possible for us. We also only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data, such as in payment transactions or with regard to your inquiries to us, by using SSL encryption. However, we would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the general dangers of Internet use, over which we have no control. Especially in e-mail traffic, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be collected by third parties.

Information, deletion, blocking

You can obtain information free of charge at any time about the personal data we have stored about you as well as the origin, recipient and purpose of data collection and data processing. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. This does not apply to data that is stored due to legal regulations or is required for proper business transactions. To ensure that data can be blocked at any time, data is stored in a lock file for control purposes. If data is not covered by a statutory archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we will block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer using the contact details in this privacy policy or at the address given in the legal notice.


We use cookies on our website. These small text files are stored on your PC from our server. They support the presentation of our website and help you to navigate our website.
Cookies collect data about your IP address, your browser, your operating system and your internet connection. We do not link this information to personal data and do not pass it on to third parties. Under no circumstances are cookies used by us to bring malware or spyware onto your computer.
You can also use our website without the use of cookies, as a result of which some displays and functions of our website may only work to a limited extent. If you wish to deactivate cookies, you can do so via special settings in your browser. Please use its help function to make the corresponding changes.

We use the “Real Cookie Banner” consent tool to manage the cookies and similar technologies used (tracking pixels, web beacons, etc.) and related consents. Details on how “Real Cookie Banner” works can be found at

The legal basis for the processing of personal data in this context is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the management of the cookies and similar technologies used and the related consents.

The provision of personal data is neither contractually required nor necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the personal data. If you do not provide the personal data, we will not be able to manage your consents.

Content and services from third-party providers

The offer on our website may also include content, services and benefits from other providers that complement our offer. Examples of such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or third-party graphics. Accessing these services from a third party regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This enables these providers to recognize your user IP address and store it.
We make every effort to include only those third-party providers who use IP addresses solely for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence on which third-party provider may store the IP address. This storage can be used for statistical purposes, for example. If we become aware of storage processes by third-party providers, we will inform our users of this fact immediately.
In this context, please also note the special data protection declarations for individual third-party providers and service providers whose services we use on our website. They can also be found in this privacy policy.

Personal data

We collect personal data in the context of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and for as long as is necessary for the use of our website or as required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and adhere strictly to the relevant legal regulations and this privacy policy when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of data collection ceases to apply or the end of the statutory retention period is reached, the data collected will be blocked or deleted.
As a rule, our website can be used without the disclosure of personal data. If we collect personal data – such as your name, your address or your e-mail address – this data is collected voluntarily. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.
Please note that data on the Internet is generally not always transmitted securely. Especially in e-mail traffic, protection cannot be guaranteed when exchanging data.

SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption when it comes to the transmission of confidential or personal content of our users. This encryption is activated, for example, when processing payment transactions and for inquiries that you send to us via our website. Please ensure that SSL encryption is activated on your side for corresponding activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: The display in your browser line changes from “http://” to “https://”. Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information if SSL encryption is activated and contact us if in doubt.

Objection to advertising e-mails

We must publish our contact details as part of the legal obligation to provide a legal notice. These are sometimes used by third parties to send unsolicited advertising and information. We hereby object to any transmission of advertising material of any kind not expressly authorized by us. We also expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the unwanted and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam e-mails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that the unauthorized transmission of advertising material can affect competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations by overfilling mailboxes or fax machines.

Use of Google AdSense

We integrate advertisements from Google AdSense on our website. Google AdSense is a remarketing function of Google Inc. It enables us to offer visitors to our website customized, interest-based advertisements. Cookies are used for this purpose. These text files stored on your computer generate information that makes you recognizable as a visitor, for example by identifying your IP address. Web beacons are also used. These are invisible graphics that are used to analyze the flow of visitors to a website. Google transmits all of this information to its servers in the USA. In this context, Google denies the storage of personal data and the merging of IP addresses with other Google services. Google Inc. however, is not prevented from passing the information on to third parties.
You have the option of disabling this remarketing function. You can make the necessary settings on the following website:
You can already prevent the storage of cookies via the page You can achieve the same result by making the appropriate settings in your browser, which are explained to you via its help function. Without cookies, the display and function of our website may be limited.
By using our website, you regularly agree that Google collects and processes the designated data in remarketing in the manner described above.

Google AdWords

On our website, we use Google AdWords, an online advertising program from Google Inc. Conversion tracking is also used here. With this tool, Google AdWords places a cookie on your PC when you come to our website via a Google ad. The cookie is no longer valid after 30 days. It is not used for personal traceability. If you visit our website as a user and the cookie is still working, we and Google will recognize that you have clicked on the corresponding ad and have been redirected to our site. A different cookie is assigned to each Google AdWords customer. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers.
The data collected by conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers. We, as the customer, thus learn the total number of users who responded to our ad and were then redirected to a website that was provided with a conversion tracking tag. During this process, we do not receive any information with which we could personally identify you as a user.
If you reject the tracking process, the Google conversion tracking cookie can be deactivated via your Internet browser. If necessary, use the browser’s help function for further information. You can find out more about Google’s privacy policy at

Use of Google Analytics

We use the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google Inc. on our website. This uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on your PC and allow an analysis of your user behavior in relation to our website. The cookies generate information that is transmitted to a Google server. These servers are usually located in the USA, but follow agreements on the use of the European Economic Area and shorten your IP address before transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be truncated after transmission to the USA. Google analyzes the transmitted information and provides further services for us website operators in this context. The IP address determined is not merged with other Google services.
You can prevent the storage of cookies on your computer by changing your browser settings. However, this may result in display and functional restrictions when using our website.
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website: Deactivate Google Analytics

A browser plug-in also prevents the collection and use of data generated by cookies. You can download it at the following link:

For the purpose of searching for and analyzing errors, evaluating usage and deriving measures for the future development of our website, we process your data using the local analysis software Matomo, InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand.

As this service is a local analysis tool, no personal data is forwarded to the service provider or to third parties. In addition, your personal data will be anonymized immediately after collection. Personal data is therefore not stored beyond the first processing step.

The legal basis for data processing is the legitimate interest (absolute technical necessity for the provision and delivery of the “website” service expressly requested by you by calling it up) in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The legal basis for the transfer to New Zealand is the EU Commission Implementing Decision 2013/65/EU.
