Data Privacy Statement (according to DSGVO German General Data Protection Regulation GDPR)

Confidence is a very important part of our business relationship. We will therefore explain to you what information we collect, process and use when you visit our website.

For us, data privacy is an utmost concern also within the company. Our employees processing personal data have special training and are obliged to adhere to national and international laws on data privacy.

Data Acquisition and Storage

For the purpose of maintaining the security of the system, data are automatically transmitted and logged (e.g. the browser type and version, the operating system used, the referrer URL, the IP address, date and time of access, contents accessed and information transmitted during the connection) when visiting a webpage. We are not able to attribute these data to persons. These data will not be fused with other data; they are used exclusively to maintain the functionality of the internet sites and the internet server. Data collected and stored are deleted regularly after four weeks (log files).

The legal basis of this type of data processing is stated in Art. 6 Par. 1f of the German General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), permitting the processing of data for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or pre-contractual measures.

We would like to point out that internet data communication (e.g. via e-mail) may be afflicted with security holes. It is not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.

We collect personal data such as name, company name, language or e-mail address only to the extent that you have provided them with your knowledge, for example within registration for download, newsletter or as far as they are required to fulfil the contract. Without these information you cannot start downloads. You have the right to withdraw your agreement at any time.

When a contractual relationship is to be established with our company, modified or its content is to be developed, we will collect and use your personal data as far as it is necessary for these purposes.

Automated decision making including profiling does not take place.

Data are stored on secure servers within the EU. Exceptions are specified below.

Purpose of Processing

On our website, data are exclusively stored and processed for liaison and support of the individual customer, for sending or downloading product information or submitting service offers.

Personal data are used for advertising purposes/market research only as far as you have explicitly given your consent.

Data Integrity

Our website is SSL encrypted, i.e. this site uses SSL or TLS encryption for safety reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential contents such as orders or inquiries that you send to the operator of the site (us). An encrypted connection is identified by the fact that the browser address line changes from “http://” to “https://” and a lock is displayed in the browser line.
With activated SSL or TLS encryption, data transmitted to us cannot be read by third parties.


When visiting one of our webpages it may happen that information in the form of a cookie is stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files the web server sends to your browser to be stored on the hard disk of your computer.
Our website uses technically necessary cookies that are required for the technical operation of the website such as
– session cookies, which are only set for the duration of the current browser session and are deleted after closing the browser (e.g. login registration in our download area).
– Function cookie for language selection
All this complies with the legal basis of Art. 6 Par. 1f DSGVO.
We checked if predominant interests of visitors on our website are opposed to the use of cookies but have arrived at the conviction that this is not the case.
If you prefer your computer not to be recognised, please change your browser settings so that all cookies are deleted from the hard disk, all cookies are blocked or you are alerted before storing a cookie. Please refer to the instructions of the manufacturer of your browser to find out how these settings are done. Changing these settings may result in a limited functionality when using our website.

Links to Other Websites

Our website contains links referring to third-party websites. We are not responsible for the data privacy measures or the contents of those websites. Therefore, we advise you to thoroughly read the data privacy statements of these third-party websites.

Despite meticulous checking of the contents we take no responsibility for links to external websites of third-parties since we have no influence on their contents. The owners or operators of the linked-to pages are solely liable for the contents.

At the time of linking, the linked-to pages were checked for potential legal violations. We did not detect any unlawful act at the time of linking.

However, unless having tangible evidence of infringements, permanent supervision of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable. As soon as such infringements become known, the links concerned will immediately be deleted.

For instance, we offer the option of accessing YouTube videos directly from our webpages. By integrating these videos, data may be transmitted to YouTube when calling up our website. We are not responsible for YouTube’s data protection policy.

Download Registration

Some of our webpages offer the option to download specific documents. When registering for these downloads, you have to fill in all the provided mandatory fields or your registration will be declined. The information entered will be employed for the purpose of using the corresponding offer or service you have registered for.

When registering for download, you agree to the fact that personal data are collected while using our services (webpages  etc.) and used for personalised advertising and market research. We use these data to supply personalised information on our products, services and offers. All this complies with the legal basis of Art. 6 Par. 1a DSGVO.
If you do not wish to be contacted by e-mail, this function can be deactivated at any time.

Disclosure of Your Data

As a matter of principle, your data are not disclosed to third parties unless they are required for business transactions in the interest of all parties involved. The data to be disclosed are limited to the necessary minimum. Information to public authorities and other national organisations is only provided within the framework of the legal duty to furnish information or based on court decisions.

Neither will data be transferred to foreign countries nor international organisations unless you are staying in a third country or the implementation of contracts requires the transfer of your data to a third country. Exceptions are at the most the tools specified in this data privacy statement: YouTube or Google Maps (see below).


When subscribing to our newsletter service, we need your e-mail address and the confirmation that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and the newsletter addressee. Additional data are not required for this purpose and will be gathered only if you enter them on your own accord.

For newsletters we use the so-called double opt-in process. This means that we will send receive our newsletter only after you have confirmed your subscription by returning your e-mail address through a link specified in our e-mail. Data are stored for the period of subscription to our newsletter. All this complies with the legal basis of Art. 6 Par. 1a DSGVO.

You are free to unsubscribe to our newsletter and to revoke the corresponding consent to storing your e-mail address at any time. For this purpose, you can either send us an e-mail or unsubscribe to our newsletter using the link at the end of the newsletter. Then, your data will immediately be deleted. Data that we stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the download login area) remain unaffected.

Sendinblue is used as newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Sendinblue GmbH. Sendinblue is strictly prohibited from selling your data and from using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Sendinblue is a German, certified supplier, which was selected according to the requirements of the European Data Protection Regulation and the German Federal Data Protection Act.

E-Mail Communication

When contacting us per e-mail, we point out that the content of unencrypted e-mails may be viewed by third parties. Therefore we recommend sending confidential information in encrypted form or by mail only. When contacting the provider (e.g. by using the contact form or e-mail) user information will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and possible further questions.

Duration of Storage

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as you revoke your consent to storing, if they are no longer required for the purpose they were stored for or if storing these data is prohibited by other legal reasons, unless deletion of the data is prevented by the statutory period of retention, then the data will not be deleted but blocked. As far as periods of retentions prescribed by commercial law or tax law have to be complied with, the storage time for specific data can be up to 10 years.

Your Rights

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your given consent with respect to the future by informal e-mail. The lawfulness of the data processing effected before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

– Right of appeal to the competent regulating authority
