  • Data protection

    The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

    As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

    We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

    II. Processing of personal data

    When you visit our website, personal data is processed. Personal data is any information that directly identifies you as a data subject or by which you can be indirectly identified.

    Personal data generally includes information such as your name and address. In addition, individual data and identifiers (e.g. the IP address or cookies) are suitable for establishing a personal reference and assigning the information to you.

    The data you provide us with, as well as data that we process automatically when you visit the website, are generally personal data. The following provisions apply to them.

    Processing activities that are carried out independently by other data controllers are not covered by this declaration and our responsibility as data controllers within the meaning of data protection law. If there are links to other websites (such as Youtube), the operators of these websites are usually independently responsible for the processing of your personal data.

    III. Processing activities on our website

    Personal data is processed on our website in several ways:


    1. Cookies

    Internet pages regularly use so-called cookies. We also use cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. They are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

    We inform you about the use of cookies at the beginning of your visit to our website by using a cookie banner that is displayed at the bottom of the browser. You can revisit the cookie settings at any time by clicking the gear in the bottom left corner or by clicking here

    Show Cookies Settings

    There are different forms of cookies. On the one hand, "session cookies" are used. They are set on your terminal device at the beginning of your visit to the website and are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies ("persistent cookies") remain stored on your end device until you delete them.

    Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies". They are therefore automatically deleted after your visit to our website. Some cookies are persistent cookies. They allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

    You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. However, if you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.


    a. Technically necessary cookies

    We use cookies that are technically necessary to ensure the functionality and security of the website. These cookies used by us serve exclusively to make our website more user-friendly, effective and technically secure. Their processing serves to protect our legitimate interests and cannot be objected to. These cookies are not used for advertising or other purposes.


    b. Web analytics cookie

    We use the analysis service Matomo (formerly Piwik) for our website for analysis purposes.

    The cookie collects personal data (IP addresses) when you visit the website. These are then anonymized and processed to measure the reach of our website.

    Matomo is used in a local version and is therefore hosted on our own servers and database. A connection to third parties is not established. Accordingly, the data is not forwarded to third parties.

    We require your consent for setting the cookie and processing your personal data for the aforementioned analysis purposes. The processing is therefore based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. You can give your consent in the cookie banner when you visit our website for the first time. You can also give your consent afterwards by opening the cookie settings. You can revoke your consent at any time by opening the cookie settings and deselecting the use of "tools for analysis". Dis processing granted until then remains unaffected.

    For more information on Matomo, please visit


    c. Third-party cookies (Google Maps)

    We use cookies from third-party providers that are not technically necessary and therefore require your express consent.

    We integrate the map service Google Maps on our site to provide you with an easy location of our company and a comfortable route planning.

    Google Maps is offered and operated by Google Inc. based in the United States (USA). When activating and using the map service, cookies are set and personal data is partly transmitted to Google servers in the USA and processed there, primarily for advertising and market research purposes. Google consequently also forms usage profiles, regardless of whether they are logged in to Google or not. Further information on processing by Google Inc. and in particular the purposes of processing and your data subject rights can be found at

    The activation and use of Google Maps and the subsequent storage of cookies or processing of personal data is based solely on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. For the transfer of data to companies in the USA, there is currently no adequacy decision of the European Commission. However, Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Framework ( Through the certification, the company has undertaken to comply with higher data protection standards than are customary in the United States and which are intended to be close to those in the European Union. The transfer of your personal data to the USA takes place solely on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

    You can give your consent in the cookie banner when you visit our website for the first time. You can also activate the cookie later via the cookie settings (hyperlink) or via the button "Allow map cookies", which is displayed on the subpage "Directions". If you refuse consent, you will not be able to use Google Maps on our website. You can revoke the consent you have given at any time by opening the cookie settings. The processing carried out until then remains unaffected.


    2. Google fonts

    This website uses external fonts (Google Fonts) in a local version. In the course of this, no transmission of your personal data to third parties takes place. The local integration takes place on our servers, so that we deliver the fonts to your browser as soon as you visit our website.

    By using the fonts, we ensure a uniform design of our website across all devices. This is also our legitimate interest, which justifies the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

    3. Server log files

    The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

    browser type and browser version
    Operating system used
    referrer URL
    Host name of the accessing computer
    Time of the server request
    IP address of the visitor

    This data may be assignable to specific persons, so that it is personal data. Their processing is justified on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests. The storage takes place for the detection of illegal use of the website as well as for the identification of users or attackers and the future defense against cyber attacks. The processing thus also serves to ensure the provision, stability and security of the website.

    This data is not merged with other data sources. The stored log files are deleted after a retention period of 3 days.


    4. Contact form

    If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

    As a rule, the processing is carried out for the implementation of contractual measures, if you ask us questions regarding an existing order, and for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, if you are seeking a business relationship with us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO). Should general inquiries be made apart from the initiation of contracts, your personal data will be processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest in the processing is to be able to answer your inquiry pertinently and to your satisfaction as well as to identify only serious inquiries.

    IV. Transmissions to third parties

    As a matter of principle, your data will not be transferred to third parties. Exceptions exist if we are legally obligated to transmit your data.


    V. Transfers to third countries

    There is no transfer of personal data to countries outside the European Union, except to the extent of the processing activities described above.


    VI. Your rights

    You have the following rights with regard to the processing of personal data concerning you:

    Right to information: you have the right to obtain information about the data stored about you.

    Right of correction and deletion: You have the right to demand the correction of incorrect data and - insofar as the legal requirements are met - the deletion of data.

    Restriction of processing: you have the right to restrict the processing of personal data, provided that the legal requirements are met.

    Data portability: you have the right to receive personal data provided by you on the basis of consent or contractual relationship in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to have it transferred to another controller.

    Objection to data processing: You have the right to object to data processing by us at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation, insofar as this is based on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO). If the right to object is exercised, the data will not be further processed unless the controller can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for further processing which override your rights and freedoms in accordance with the law. In the event of an objection, we cannot continue to offer you services or offers associated with the processing.

    Withdrawal of consent: You have the right to withdraw consent given to the controller for the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future, unless there is also a legal permission for the processing. The lawfulness of the processing of the data until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

    Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority: you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data concerning you violates data protection regulations. The complaint can be filed with any data protection authority, in particular with the data protection authority responsible for your place of residence or with the data protection authority responsible for the controller.

    You can assert your rights against the data controller. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given at the beginning or by e-mail to
