Data Protection Declaration

General information
We take the protection of personal data, and thus also your privacy, very seriously. We would like to explain what this means for you when you use our personalised services and how we protect your data. In order to achieve maximum possible protection of your privacy it is, for us, a matter of course that we comply with all legal data protection regulations.

Personal data
Personal data provides information on your identity. This includes, for example, details such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. It is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to use our website. In certain cases, however, we require your name and address, as well as other information, so that we can provide the services you require.

The same applies, for example, for the sending of informative material and ordered goods, or for answering individual questions. Where necessary, we will provide you with appropriate information in this regard. In addition, we only save and process data that you have provided for us voluntarily or automatically. Insofar that we ask you for more detailed data, this will involve information provided voluntarily. The processing of personal data takes place exclusively to fulfil the requested offer and to safeguard our own legitimate business interests.

Intended purpose for the personal data
We use the personal data that you provide in order to answer your enquiries, process your orders, or provide you with access to particular information or offers. We will neither sell your personal data to third parties nor otherwise market it.

Specific use
We will only collect, process and use the personal data that you have provided online for the purpose we informed you about. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent. The collection of personal data, and the passing on of such data to state institutions and authorities that are entitled to obtain such information, will only take place within the framework of relevant legislation or if we are obliged to do so by a judicial decision. We have obliged our employees, and any service providers we employ, to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Non-personal data that are automatically collected
The following data are saved for organisational and technical reasons when you use our website: the names of the pages visited, the browser and operating system used, the data and time of this access, the search machine used, the names of files that have been downloaded, and your IP address. We evaluate this technical data anonymously and only for statistical purposes in order to be able to constantly further optimise our website and to design our internet presence even more attractively. These anonymised data are stored on secure systems separately from personal information and do not allow identification of an individual. Your personal data and your privacy are therefore protected at all times.

Persons under 16 years of age should not provide us with any personal data without the permission of their parents or guardians. We do not request any personal data from children and youths, nor do we pass any such data on to third parties.

This Data Protection Declaration does not apply to any external links offered on our website. We make every effort to ensure that any links we offer also comply with our data protection and security standards. We do not, however, have any influence on the compliance with data protection and security regulations by other suppliers. Therefore please examine the data protection declaration provided on the website of any such other provider.

Name and address of the Data Protection Officer
Mr. Kranzer,

You can contact our Data Protection Officer directly at any time if you have any queries regarding data protection.

Use of special services offered on our website
It is necessary to collect personal data for certain services. Only the data exclusively required for the particular purpose will be collected, and the legal retention periods will be complied with.

Customer accounts
Personal data are necessary for the creation of a customer account. The necessary data are marked with an asterisk (*) in the registration mask. On registration, you permit us to use this data for the purpose of managing the account. Further data, depending on the mode of payment, are necessary for orders placed in the shop. This will depend on the mode of payment selected.

Online application portal
We use an online application portal to organise job applications. The following data are processed when this online portal is used: form of address, title, first name, family name, road and house number, postal code and location, e-mail address, telephone/mobile number, a free field for letters of application, upload of attachments for letters of application and documentation. Transfer of the data takes place in encrypted form. These data are only used for the application process. For this purpose, these data are passed on internally to the responsible department head. Fundamentally, the data is deleted three months after completion of the application process. The data will be included in your personnel file if a contract is completed following your application. More information on data protection during the processing of applications.

General information on the use of cookies
Cookies allow us to provide more user-friendly services to our website users. This would not be possible without using cookies. We optimise our information and website presence on the basis of the data collected via cookies. Generally, the use of cookies for our website can be prevented via the configuration of the browser you use. You can also delete cookies already used via a corresponding browser function.

If cookies are not used, however, under certain circumstances it is possible that parts of the website will be impossible to use, or may only be used to a limited extent.

The Google cookie
A variety of cookies are deployed within the framework of Google Analytics. These may change over time. We will therefore provide a summary description of Google Analytics here.

This website uses Google Analytics provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

Google Analytics allows the data, sessions and interactions of several devices to be assigned a pseudonymous user ID. This enables cross-device analysis of user activities.

An analysis of the use of this website is created with the help of these cookies (text files stored on your computer). We use the ‘IP anonymisation’ function. Thus the data are processed in a member state of the EU or another contracting member of the agreement within the EEA. In exceptional cases it is possible that the full IP address is transferred to a server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google does not merge the IP address transmitted from your browser within the framework of Google Analytics with any other data. Google evaluates the transferred data on our behalf and provides us with reports on website activities and use. Google also provides associated services in addition to website use and internet use. This processing of the data is also in our legitimate interests. The legal basis here is § 15 Para. 3 German Telemedia Act (TMG) and Art. 6 Para. 1F of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). The data thus collected via the cookies are automatically deleted, once a month, after 14 months.

You can configure administration of the cookies by making a setting in the browser software.

You can prevent the processing of data by Google with the help of the opt-out cookie ( For this purpose you must download and install the browser add-on. If you want to achieve this for several devices you must install this add-on on all the devices.

Our website contains plugins from YouTube, which belongs to Google Inc., with its headquarters in San Bruno, California, USA. The YouTube button is recognisable from the logo of the same name. Your browser creates a direct connection to the servers of YouTube when you visit a page on our website that contains such a plugin. Whereby the YouTube server is informed about the particular pages of our internet presence that you have visited. If you are logged into YouTube with your personal user account while visiting our website you enable YouTube to allocate your surfing behaviour directly to your personal account. Please log off YouTube before visiting our website if you want to disable such a transfer of data.

Please see the data protection information provided by YouTube to find out about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by YouTube, as well as your rights in this regard and your possibilities for making settings to protect your privacy here:
