On the one hand, your data is collected when you share it with us. This includes data that you enter in a contact form, for example.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. This mainly includes technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time when the page was visited). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

Some data is collected in order to ensure the website functions properly. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

You have the right to obtain information about the origin, recipient and purpose of the personal data stored by us free of charge at any time.

2. General notes and mandatory information
We would like to point out that the online transmission of data (such as via email) may be exposed to security gaps. Completely protecting data against third-party access is impossible.
Address of the data controller
The data controller who is responsible for processing data on this website is:
Waller Stieg 3
28217 Bremen, Germany
The data controller is the natural or legal person who alone or, together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your previously given consent at any time. To do so all you need to do is send us an email. Data that has been processed up to the point that the revocation is requested has been processed on legitimate grounds and remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR).
If your personal data is processed to operate direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
Right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the case of violations of the GDPR, the persons concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
In the case of data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, you have the right to have this data handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the data to be transferred directly to another data controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
This site uses SSL and TLS encryption respectively for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can check you have an encrypted connection when you see that the browser address field has changed from “http://” to “https://” and when you see the lock symbol in the browser address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and correction
Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain information free of charge concerning the personal data we have stored about you. You also have the right to know the origin of the data, who is receiving it and for what purpose the data is being processed. If necessary, you also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. Should you have further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address provided in the legal notice.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us about this at any time at the address provided in the imprint. You have the right to restrict the processing of your data in the following circumstances:
- If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we have stored about you, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification process, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If your personal data has been or is being unlawfully processed, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of its deletion.
- If we no longer require your personal data, however you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to demand that your personal data be restricted instead of being deleted.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
Objection to advertising emails
We hereby object to the use by of contact data (made public as part of our obligation under German law to provide a “Legal Notice” on the internet) for sending unsolicited advertisements or informative materials. The operators of the websites expressly reserve the right to take legal action against such unsolicited advertising information and spam emails.
3. Data collection on our website
If you contact us via the contact form, the requested information on the form, including contact data specified by you, shall be stored by us solely for the purpose of processing the request and for follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your permission.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so all you need to do is send us an email. This does not affect the legality of any data processing done before we receive your request.
We shall keep the data you enter in the contact form until you request its deletion, you revoke your consent to it being stored or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer data and contract data)
We collect, process, and use personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the establishment, content development or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or due to pre-contractual measures. We collect, process, and use personal data on the use of our internet pages (usage data) only insofar as this is necessary to allow the user to make use of the service or to make payments.
The customer data collected will be deleted after the order has been completed or the business relationship has ended. Statutory retention periods shall remain unaffected.
Cookie-generated information about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored in a Google server in the USA. Since we have activated IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there (an adequate level of data protection exists pursuant to Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR through Google’s participation in the Privacy Shield). We have also concluded a contract with Google Inc. (USA) for order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. Accordingly, Google uses all information strictly for the purpose of evaluating the use of our website for us and compiling reports on website activity.
You may object to this processing at any time. Please use one of the following options:
In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting data generated by the cookie on how you use this website (including your IP address), and also prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from the following link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en), or by clicking on this link to set an opt-out cookie which will restrict the processing of your data.
4. Plugins, tools and fonts
Our website uses plugins of the Vimeo video portal. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
If you visit one of our pages which feature a Vimeo plugin, a connection is established to the Vimeo servers. The Vimeo server is then informed about which of our pages you have visited. Furthermore, Vimeo will acquire your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged into Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is sent to the Vimeo server in the USA.
If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, Vimeo allows you to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
Vimeo is used in the interests of making our online presence more attractive. This constitutes a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. If the corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
This website uses web fonts from Adobe for the uniform display of certain fonts. The provider is Adobe Systems Incorporated, 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, CA 95110-2704, USA (Adobe).
When you visit this website, your browser loads the fonts directly from Adobe in order to display them correctly on your end device. This establishes a connection between your browser and Adobe’s servers in the USA. Adobe thus becomes aware that this web page was accessed via your IP address. According to Adobe, no cookies are stored when the fonts are provided.
Adobe is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the United States to ensure compliance with European privacy standards. For more information go to: https://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/eudatatransfers.html.
The legal basis for storing and analysing this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The website operators have a legitimate interest in the uniform representation of fonts on their website. If the corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

This website uses the reCAPTCHA feature provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). This feature is used to differentiate whether an entry is made by a natural person or whether the function is being misused through automated processing. Use of the service also involves sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.
Google Ireland Limited, headquartered in Ireland, is certified under the “Privacy Shield”, a US-European data protection accord which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
