Collected data
When you visit our website, data are collected automatically and saved in log files on our host server. These data may contain a personal reference. Access log files and error log files are saved on the server. These log files contain the IP address of the visitor and therefore contain personal data. The following data are collected:

- Websites visited
- The time at the point of access
- The volume of data sent in bytes
- The source/reference from which you originally visited the page
- The web browser used
- The operating system used
- The IP address used

The hoster uses the collected data to ensure the trouble-free operation of the website as well as to ensure IT security and to improve our offer. If there are concrete indications, the log data may be subsequently analyzed. The temporary storage of the IP address by the hoster is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, your IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. This data is not merged with other data sources. The legal basis for data collection is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in data collection arises from the aforementioned purposes. The data is deleted by the host as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, the data is automatically deleted after 7 days. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, you do not have the option to object.

We currently only use so-called local storage cookies (also known as "local data", "local storage" and "session storage"), i.e. we use the storage capacity of your browser. With LocalStorage, data is stored locally in the cache of your browser, which continues to exist even after closing the browser window or exiting the program and can be read out if you do not actively delete the cache. Local Storage makes it possible for your preferences to be stored on your computer and used by you when you use our websites. The function of Session Storage corresponds to the LocalStorage described above, except that the corresponding data is automatically removed from your browser's cache immediately after closing the browser ("session"). Third parties cannot access the data stored in LocalStorage or Session Storage. They are not passed on to third parties and are not used for advertising purposes. In particular, this technology is used to present our content to you in an appealing graphic display (e.g. pop-up windows, etc.) and to personalize our offer and navigation on our pages for you. The data is not merged with other data (e.g. information from tracking tools, which is also stored separately in LocalStorage). LocalStorage also stores certain information and inputs to the tracking tools for transmission and evaluation. This data is only used to analyze and evaluate the surfing behavior of visitors. The data stored in LocalStorage is not used for advertising purposes. Insofar as the use of this technology is necessary for the operation of the website, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in being able to provide you with an attractive, fully functional offer on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, otherwise on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties (end-to-end encryption). The protocols authenticate the communication partner and ensure the integrity of the transmitted data.

Contact options
On our website, it is possible to contact us using the contact form or by email. In this context, personal data that pertains to you will be saved and processed for communication purposes.

A combination of such data with other data to be collected on this website does not take place. If you are already a customer of our company, the data may be saved in the scope of our Customer Relations Management (CRM). The basis for the collection of the data according to Art. 6, para 1 (1) GDPR is as follows: the consent that you provide (lit. a); the processing of the information for the fulfilment of a contract or the initiation of a contract (lit. b), the possible fulfilment of a legal obligation (lit. b) as well as the legitimate interest of our company in the communication that you have instigated (lit. f).
