We will handle your personal data confidentially, and in accordance with legal regulations as well as with this data protection declaration. Hereinafter we want to inform you about the processing of personal data.

(3) Collection and processing of personal data


Basically, you can use our online offer without disclosing your identity. If we collect personal data on our website in the context of contact forms or when registering (such as name, address or E-mail address), for example, this is on a voluntary basis. This information is used for our own business purposes (such as the shipment of requested material / information). In case of questions of any kind, we offer you the possibility of getting into contact with us by means of a form provided on the website. Data marked as compulsory details are required to assign the enquiry and to answer questions. Other details may be added voluntarily. Data processing for the purpose of establishing contact is carried out in keeping with Section 6, Paragraph 1, page 1, lit. a of the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) on the basis of your voluntary given consent. The personal data collected for the use of the contact form will be deleted after execution of your enquiry as well as after expiry of the obligations set by tax and commercial law. Consent given - for the purpose of receiving a newsletter or other interesting information about our company, for example - can be revoked with effect for the future at any time without stating any reasons. For this purpose, you can use the contact form mentioned hereinbefore or another route mentioned in the newsletter.
