General information and mandatory information

The operators of this website take protection of your personal data very seriously.

c) Revocation of your consent for data processing

Many data processing operations are possible only with your express consent. You can revoke previously granted consent at any time. To do this, simply send us an informal message by e-mail. The legality of data processed up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

d) The right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of a data protection breach, you also have a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority on data protection and legal questions is the Land’s (German administrative region) data protection officer of the federal Land in which our company has its registered office. Since our company has its head office in North Rhine-Westphalia, the competent supervisory authority is the officer for data protection and freedom of information of North Rhine-Westphalia. You can contact this person via the following link:

c) Right to data portability

You have the right to pass on data, which is automatically processed, on the basis of your consent, or to fulfil an agreement, to yourself or to a third party in a current machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this may only be done if it is technically feasible.

e) SSL data protection or TLS encryption

For safety reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as orders or queries that you sent to a website operator, this site uses SSL/or TLS encryption. If a website has an encrypted connection, in the address line of the browser the “http://” will change to “https://” and the lock icon will become visible in your browser.

If the SSL/or TLS encryption is enabled, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

f) Information, blocking, deletion

As part of valid legal regulations, you have the right without charge to be informed about the personal data stored about you, its origin and destination and the purpose for which the data was processed, and where appropriate, a right to correct, block or delete this data. To do this, and if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection, you can at any time contact us via the address given in the imprint.

Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies are saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser when you next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies and allow cookies on a case-by-case basis only, accept cookies for certain cases or block them, or automatically delete the cookies when you close the browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be impaired. 

Cookies that are necessary for the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you may want (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved in accordance with art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. The IP address, date and time of the visit, any web page/file requests, transmitted agent ID, domain (referrer URL), the quantity of data sent, and the access status are collected by the host or provider. This data cannot be attributed to a particular person, and will not be conflated with other data sources. Server looks are used to ensure technical safety, such as protecting and identifying attacks or detecting misuse, as well as generating statistics. These statistics
do not contain any IPs or other personal data, and the IPs in the looks are anonymised after seven days.
