Data protection

Thank you very much for your interest in our web presence. The protection of your personal information is important to us. We comply with the legal regulations set forth in the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz [German Federal Data Protection Act] (BDSG), the Telemediengesetz [German Telemedia Law] (TMG), and other laws governing data protection.

Object of the data protection

The object of the data protection is personal information. Sec. 3 para. 1 BDSG defines this information as individual data on personal and material relationships of a particular or identifiable individual. This includes information such as the name, mailing address, email address or phone number, but also, if any, usage data such as your IP address.


Scope of data collection and storage

In general, the use of our website does not require the disclosure of any of your personal data. However, in order to be able to actually render our services to you, we might need your personal information. This applies both when it comes to sending your information material or goods you ordered or when answering specific questions you might have.
If you request services or the delivery of goods, we collect and store your personal data in principle only to the extent necessary to ensure the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. For this purpose, it might be necessary to forward your personal information to companies which we engage for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract, such as transport agencies and other service companies.
Your data is blocked after the complete performance of the contract and deleted after expiry of the provisions under fiscal and commercial law, provided that you did not expressly agree to the further use of your data.
