The saving of cookies that are needed to be able to run the electronic communications process or to provide certain functions that you want to use (e.g. the shopping basket function) is based on Art. 6, Para. 1f of the General Data Protection Regulations. The website operator has a justified interest in saving the cookies in order to ensure technically correct and optimised provision of his services. If other cookies (i.e. cookies that analyse your surfing habits) are also saved, they will be treated separately under this data privacy declaration.
Server log files
The provider of these pages automatically collects and saves information in the so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. They are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system that you use

- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data will not be integrated in other data sources.
The collecting of this data is based on Art. 6, Para. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulations. The website operator has a justified interest in ensuring technically correct and optimised presentation of his website and the server log files have to be recorded specifically for this purpose.
If you use the contact form to send us your enquiries, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details that provided there, will be saved by us so that we can process your enquiry and answer any follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
Processing the data entered in the contact form will be carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6, Para. 1a of the General Data Protection Regulations). You can retract this consent at any time. Just send an informal notification to us by e-mail. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the retraction will remain unaffected by the retraction.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, retract your consent to it being saved or if the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (i.e. after your request has been processed). Obligatory statutory provisions, especially the retention periods, will remain unaffected.

In all other cases the processing will be based on your consent (Art. 6, Para. 1a of the General Data Protection Regulations) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6, Para. 1f of the General Data Protection Regulations), as we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing the enquiries sent to us.
The data that you sent to us as contact enquiries will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, retract your consent to it being saved or if the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (i.e. after your request has been processed). Obligatory statutory provisions, especially the legal retention periods, will remain unaffected.
