We consider it our primary task to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data you provide and to protect it from unauthorized access. We therefore take the utmost care and apply the latest security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data.

1. With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The advertised goods and services are named in the declaration of consent. The newsletter is sent via the third-party provider "". We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after you have registered, we will send you an email to the email address you have provided in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store the IP addresses you use and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

2. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to address you personally.

3. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we will save your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, via this form on the website, by e-mail to or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint.

5. We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluations, we link the above-mentioned data and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. The data is collected exclusively in pseudonymized form, i.e. the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, and direct personal identification is excluded. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in every e-mail or by informing us via another contact channel. The information will be stored for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.

4. Google Analytics

If you give your consent, we process your personal data with the service Google Analytics, Google LLC, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, as joint controllers for the purpose of error analysis and statistical evaluation of our website. Failure to give your consent has no direct effect on the function of the website, but without statistical data it will be more difficult for us to further develop the website. You can revoke any consent you have already given by changing the data protection settings.

We enable the service to collect connection data, data from your web browser and data about the content accessed, as well as the execution of analysis software and the storage of data on your end device. The service anonymizes the collected data immediately after collection and provides us with the anonymous data in the form of statistics for evaluation. We use these statistics to correct errors and to further develop our website. The data on your device is stored for a period of up to two years.

The legal basis for data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The Google Group transfers your personal data to the USA. The legal basis for the data transfer to the USA is your consent in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You were already informed before giving your consent that the USA does not have a level of data protection corresponding to the standards of the EU. In particular, US intelligence services can access your data without you being informed and without you being able to take legal action against this. For this reason, the European Court of Justice has declared the previous adequacy decision (Privacy Shield) invalid in a ruling.
