You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time a web page is retrieved, the Web server just automatically stores a so-called server log file, which contains such data as the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and the Web server documents the retrieval.

This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring a trouble-free operation of the site as well as the improvement of our offer. This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests (which are predominant in a balancing of interests) in correctly presenting our offer. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your webpage visit.

Obligatory fields are marked as such, since in these cases, we need the data for contract processing and/or to process your contact, and since you cannot send the order and/or contact without this information. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you to process the contract and your inquiries. After the processing of the contract or of your contact request has been completed, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the fiscal and commercial retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to further data use which is legally permitted and about which we are informing you in this Data Privacy Statement.
