2. Collection and storage of data when visiting our website
When you call up our website, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used on your end device. This information is temporarily stored in so-called server log files. The following information is recorded:
 Name and URL of the visited website
 Referrer URL
 Date and time of access
 IP address
 Web browser and the operating system used by your end device
 Domain name
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. This data does not allow any conclusion to be drawn about your person. These data will not be merged with personal data. However, we reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
The collection of this data is absolutely necessary to guarantee a smooth connection of the website as well as the comfortable use, delivery and presentation of the contents of our website. In addition, we use this data for the evaluation of system security and stability as well as for statistical purposes, in particular for the optimization of the website, the technology, and our offer.

3. Personal data, use and transmission to third parties
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, in particular, the name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and gender.
We collect, process and use your personal data only if you consent to the collection, processing and use of data or if another legal basis in accordance with the DSGVO exists.
We use the data you provide us with for contract processing and to process your inquiries, to send you information, advertising material and invitations to our events if you have given your consent, and to receive our newsletter if you have given separate consent. Your data will not be used for other purposes. An exception to this is the use for statistical purposes, provided that the data made available to us is made anonymous.
Your data will only be passed on to third parties if there is a legal obligation to do so if this is necessary for the execution of the contract (e.g. to the transport company commissioned with the delivery and to the credit company commissioned with the handling of payments) or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, if this is necessary and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not passing on your data. Your data will be forwarded exclusively on the basis of the DSGVO. Some third parties to be called in for the execution of the contract have their headquarters outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany or process your personal data outside this territory. The level of protection in other countries may not correspond to that of Germany. However, we only transfer your personal data to countries for which the EU Commission has decided that they have an adequate level of data protection or we take measures to ensure that all recipients have an adequate level of data protection, for which purpose we conclude standard contractual clauses.
We use the services of Bohncke GmbH, Auf der Langwies 8 , 65510 Hünstetten-Wallbach , which has access to your data. This service provider is obliged not to use this data for other purposes and to process it exclusively on our behalf and according to our instructions and to comply with the applicable statutory data protection regulations.

4. Duration of data storage and deletion
We will not store the data for the purpose of contract processing for longer than is necessary to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations and to ward off liability claims. Personal data that you have made available to us to receive our newsletter, information, and advertising material or invitations to our events will only be stored until you revoke your consent for this use of your data. If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a legally prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted.

5. Data security
Your personal data is protected by appropriate organizational and technical precautions to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

"Google Adwords" is an analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

These cookies lose their validity after a maximum of 90 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we can recognize that you have clicked on a corresponding ad and have thus been redirected to our site.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers.

AdWords advertisers know the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that can be used to identify users personally.
