We are pleased that you are visiting our website and thank you for your interest in our company and our products. The protection of your privacy when using our website is important to us. Therefore, please take note of the following information:
1) Collection, processing and use of personal data
In principle, you can visit our website without us collecting any personal data from you. Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us voluntarily in order to execute a contract, when opening a customer account or when contacting us. This data is used without your express consent in each case for the execution of the contract and processing of your enquiries. After the contract has been fully processed, your data will be stored with regard to tax and commercial law retention periods, but deleted after these periods have expired.

This website uses so-called "cookies", which serve to make our Internet presence more user-friendly, effective and secure overall - for example, when it comes to speeding up navigation on our website. Cookies also enable us to measure the frequency of page views and general navigation. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. We would like to point out that some of these cookies are transferred from our server to your computer system, whereby these are mostly so-called "session cookies". "Session cookies" are characterised by the fact that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session. Other cookies remain on your computer system and enable us to recognise your computer system on your next visit (so-called permanent cookies). Of course, you can reject cookies at any time, provided your browser allows this. Please note that certain functions of this website may not be available or may only be available to a limited extent if your browser is set to not accept cookies (from our website).
4) Use of Google AdWords conversion tracking
This website uses the online advertising programme "Google AdWords" and, within the framework of Google AdWords, conversion tracking. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we will be able to recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across AdWords customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

5) Web analytics service
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google").

6) Use of Facebook plugins
We have integrated so-called plugins of the social network facebook.com (hereinafter "Facebook") into our Internet presence. Facebook is a company of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. A list and the appearance of these plugins from Facebook can be viewed at the following Internet address: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
Each time you call up a web page on our website that is provided with such a plugin, the plugin causes the browser you are using to load and display the visual representation of the plugin from the Facebook server. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook user account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are a member of Facebook and are logged in to Facebook while visiting our website, Facebook recognises through the information sent by the plugin which particular website of our website you are currently visiting and assigns this to your personal user account on Facebook, regardless of whether you activate one of the plugins. If you now activate one of the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or by submitting a comment, this will be sent to your personal user account on Facebook and stored there. To prevent Facebook from assigning the collected data to your user account on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
