Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

The Google Tag Manager is a cookie-less domain that does not collect any personal information. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect data. We hereby draw your attention to this separately. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made by the user at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Subject of data protection
The subject of data protection is personal data. According to § 3 para. 1 BDSG, these are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also usage data such as your IP address.
Scope of data collection and storage
In general, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to use our website. However, in order for us to actually provide our services, we may need your personal data. This applies to the sending of information material or ordered goods as well as to the answering of individual inquiries.
If you instruct us to provide a service or to send goods, we only collect and store your personal data to the extent necessary to provide the service or to execute the contract. For this purpose, it may be necessary to pass on your personal data to companies that we use to provide the service or implement the contract. These are for example transport companies or other service providers. If we carry out one of the actions described below or other actions or provide services, we would like to collect and store your personal data and will ask you for your express consent at the appropriate place on our website:
- Order process
- Sending of the newsletter
- Personalization of our website
- further services and offers, for whose data collection your explicit consent is required
After complete contract processing, your data will be stored and deleted after expiration of the tax and commercial law regulations, unless you have expressly agreed to a further use of data.
If you have registered for our newsletter with your e-mail address, we will use your e-mail address for our own advertising purposes beyond the execution of the contract until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.
Collection and storage of usage data
Earmarked use of data
We observe the principle of purpose-related data use and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have provided them to us. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, unless this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Also, the transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information is only carried out within the scope of the legal obligations to provide information or if we are obliged to provide information by a court decision.
We also take the company's internal data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obligated by us to maintain secrecy and to comply with data protection regulations.
Right of information and revocation
You will receive information about your data stored with us at any time and free of charge without giving reasons. You can block, correct or delete the data collected by us at any time. You can also revoke the consent given to us to collect and use your data at any time without giving reasons. To do so, please contact the contact address given in the imprint. We will be happy to answer any further questions you may have about our information on data protection and the processing of your personal data.
Please note that data protection regulations and handling of data protection, e.g. at Google, can change continuously. It is therefore advisable and necessary to keep up to date with changes in legal regulations and the practice of companies, e.g. Google.
