2. General and Mandatory Information
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations, and this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Am Birkenfeld 16
Telephone: +49 (0)5504 937147
Telephone: +49 (0)7131 2037324

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Right to data portability
You have the right to your personal data that we process automatically, on the basis of your consent, or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done as long as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from „http://“ to „https://“, and by the lock symbol in your browser address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, Blocking and Deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right, at any time, to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the impressum.
Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby object to the sending of advertisement and/or informative material, that have not been expressly requested, to contact data published within the framework of the impressum obligation. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example by spam e-mails.
3. Data Collection on our Website
Some internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our site more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies“. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies, you only allow cookies in individual cases, you exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases, or so that you can activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies that are needed to carry out electronic communication processes, or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. With regards to how other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection
Server Log Files
The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
Browser type and version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry, and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Social Media
Sharing content via plugins (Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co.)
The content on our pages can be shared on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+ in a privacy-compliant manner. This site uses Shariff Wrapper for this purpose. This tool establishes direct contact between the networks and users, only when the user actively clicks on one of these buttons.
This tool does not automatically transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If the user is registered with one of the social networks, an information window appears when using the social buttons of Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co. in which the user can confirm the text before sending it.
Our users can share the contents of this page on social networks in a privacy-compliant manner without complete surfing profiles being created by the operators of the networks.
7. Plugins and Tools
Our website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo server is established. In this process, the Vimeo server is informed of which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo, or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA.
If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you enable Vimeo to link your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you visit a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This informs Google that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our site. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.
