3. Data collection on our website

Cookies 
Some Internet pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are filed on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser at your next visit. 

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, accept cookies for certain functions or generally exclude them, and you can activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. When you disable cookies, the functionality of the website may be restricted.
Cookies which are needed to carry out the electronic communication process or for making available certain functions you want (such as the shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6, para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically fault-free and optimised delivery of its services. In so far as other cookies are stored (e. g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour), these are treated separately in this privacy policy. 

Server log files 
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are: 

Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
IP address 

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. 

Contact form 
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including your contact details specified therein, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent. 

The processing of the data entered on the contact form is thus exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing operations carried out until revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. 

The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you ask us for it to be erased, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for the data storage ceases to apply (e. g. after completion of your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected. 

Registration on this website 
You can register on our website to use additional features on the site. We only use the data entered for the purposes of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be given in full. Otherwise we will decline the registration. 

For important changes such as the scope of our offer or for technically necessary changes, we use the e-mail address specified during registration to inform you in this way. 

The processing of the data entered during registration takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing already carried out is not affected by the revocation. 

The data collected during registration is stored by us as long as you are registered on our website and will be subsequently erased. The statutory storage periods will remain unaffected.
