Data protection

The protection and security of our customers’ and users’ data is very important to us. This is why we have designed our website and our business processes so that we collect and process as little personal data as possible. We keep your personal data strictly confidential and process it in accordance with the applicable privacy laws as well as the terms of this privacy policy.

The following Privacy Policy explains what data we collect during your visit to our website and which parts of this data may be used, and in what ways.

We do not collect personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address, unless you provide this information voluntarily, like if you want to receive one of our newsletters and be addressed personally. We use the data you provide voluntarily exclusively for the purpose for which you have provided it to us. We will only use your data for other purposes, like for other offers or for marketing purposes, if you have given us your consent to do so.

Server Log Files

Our web server is configured so that the data that would be necessary to individually identify a user is not automatically logged.

In case of attempted misuse or server errors, however, it may be necessary to activate a log file for error analysis. In this case, we will collect your IP address, the specific address of the page you visited, the page from which you came, if applicable (“referring URL”), your browser’s transmitted ID, as well as the system date and time the page was accessed. This data is deleted from our servers immediately after the error has been corrected and is used exclusively to analyze the error.


We use cookies, which are small text files in which, for example, the language you select on our website is saved and then stored in your browser.

We use tracking services and cookies to create pseudonymous user profiles. This user profile contains information about a visitor’s behavior on our website. It is not possible to identify you directly, however. You can object to the creation of the user profiles at any time. You can also set your browser so that these cookies are not saved or are deleted at the end of your browsing session.
