Your privacy is our concern

We appreciate your interest in our company and our products and services and would like you to feel secure when visiting our website with regard to the protection of your personal data. Because we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Compliance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act is a matter of course for us.

We want you to know when we collect information what information and how we use it. We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the rules on data protection are respected both by us and by external service providers.

Personal data
Personal information is information about your identity. These include e.g. Information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address. The use of our website does not require that you disclose personal data. However, in certain cases, we may need your name and address, as well as other information, so that we can provide the services you require.

The same applies, for example, to the sending of information material or to answering individual questions. Where necessary, we will inform you accordingly. In addition, we only store and process data that you voluntarily or automatically make available to us.

If you make use of our services, generally only such data will be collected as we need to provide the services. As far as we ask you for more information, it is voluntary information. The processing of personal data takes place exclusively for the fulfillment of the requested service and for the preservation of own justified business interests.

Purpose of personal data
In general, we will use the personal information you provide to respond to your requests, process your orders, or provide you with access to specific information or offers. Customer Relationship Management may also require that we or a service provider contracted by us use such personal information to inform you about product offerings that are useful to you in your business, or to conduct online surveys to meet the needs and requirements to better serve our customers.

Of course, we respect it, if you do not want to give us your personal data to support our customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or for market research purposes). We will not sell or otherwise market your personal information to third parties.

Purpose-built use
We will collect, process and use the personal data provided by you online only for the purposes communicated to you. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your necessary consent.

Surveys of personal data as well as their transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information only take place within the framework of the relevant laws or insofar as we are obliged to do so by a court decision. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are obliged by us to secrecy and to comply with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act.
