Data protection information for and

1. Basic Information

Thank you for visiting our website. This policy will provide you with information about the way we handle your personal data when using our services on the Internet and through our website. It also refers to the use of our services with mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, for example.  Personal data is any data that identifies you personally or identifies you through an identifier, such as your IP address.

This Privacy Policy explains the legal basis and purpose of doing so. In addition, it will inform you about the rights you have with regard to the use of your personal data.  If you have questions regarding the use of your personal data by us, please contact us, as the responsible authority (contact under number 2).

For reasons of security and to protect the transfer of personal data and other confidential content (for example, orders or requests to the person in charge), our online service uses an SSL Internet connection with TLS encryption. An encrypted connection is identified by the string "https: //" and the lock icon in your browser bar.

3. Data collection when visiting our online services

When visiting our website (without registration) our server will automatically collect the following data anonymously:

  • Shortened IP address
  • Date/time/time zone of access
  • Access status
  • Access type
  • Protocol type
  • Type and number of pages visited
  • Name and size of files accessed
  • Output website
  • Web browser
  • Operating system

The above-mentioned non-personal information is collected automatically by the ordinary working methods of our internet services.  We do not use or evaluate data regarding website visits. Any usage data linked to a particular individual is excluded by us.

We use the above-mentioned data for the purpose of troubleshooting, to generate statistics and to measure activities on the website with the aim of increasing the relevance of our services for you.  At the same time, this constitutes a legitimate interest, so that data processing is justified under Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Marketing Management has access to this data internally for the above-mentioned purposes. Maintenance and programming of our website is carried out by registered trader Dag Oellerking, Oberaltenallee 20a, 22081 Hamburg, with whom we have concluded an order processing contract for this purpose.

The above-mentioned data is only collected for the period of use; once this period is finished, the data will be deleted immediately but no later than seven days.

We use cookies and web analysis services to obtain information as soon as your web browser opens our website.  These identifiers support various service functions of our website and are automatically transmitted via your web browser to the hard drive of your computer or other mobile end device.  You can deactivate this function by adjusting your web browser accordingly.  However, a personalised service will not then be possible. In these cases, your anonymised IP address may also be transferred to the United States. For more information on the cookies and web analytics tools we use, see the section entitled "Using cookies and web analytics services" below.

4. Contact

Our contact email addresses are given on our website. By contacting us via e-mail, you may transmit personal information such as your first and last name, your e-mail address, mailing address and telephone number. Contacting us is always voluntary.

We process this data solely for the purpose of answering your request or for the desired contact with you and the associated technical administration.  The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, because we need the data mentioned above to initiate, conduct or terminate a contractual relationship with you.

We do not submit your enquiries to third countries or to organisations outside the EU.

After processing your request, we will delete your contact details immediately, but no later than seven days after the request has been processed.  This storage period may conflict with statutory retention periods, e.g. For example, if your request is related to a contract or guarantee or warranty.  In this case, we store your request beyond the expiration of seven days only for the purpose of fulfilling the statutory retention obligations (Article6 (1) (c) GDPR).  In this case, we will delete your data at the latest at the end of the statutory retention period (§ 147 Abs. 3 AO), i.e. after 10 years, starting with the conclusion of the contract. Upon expiration of this retention period, we will immediately delete this information without you having to ask us to do so.

5. Use of your data for advertising purposes (product recommendations to existing customers / newsletter subscription)

5.1 Service recommendations or product recommendations to existing customers

If you have ordered services from us and have given us your e-mail address, it is within the scope of legal requirements for us to send you service recommendations for similar services, provided that we have informed you about this upon conclusion of the contract and you did not disagree. This type of approach is exclusively for the purpose of transmitting the service recommendation by electronic mail to you as an existing customer.  We are pursuing our legitimate interest in the personalised direct marketing of existing customers.  The justification for this arises in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 (3) of the Unfair Competition Act (UWG).  If you have initially objected to using your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not e-mail the specified information to you. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned purpose of advertising at any time with future effect by notifying us.  After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose will be stopped immediately

5.2 Newsletter Subscription

You can contact us via email at to receive our customer magazine and to register for our e-mail newsletters. Our customer magazine and newsletters provide regular updates on news, interesting offers, new promotions and campaigns. Required information for the receipt of our newsletter is simply your e-mail address.  For the receipt of the customer magazine by post we will need your postal address and your name.  We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure for the newsletter subscription. For this purpose, we will send you a confirmation e-mail after you have given your consent to the newsletter subscription.  In this email, we will ask you to click on the link contained therein to confirm the newsletter subscription.  You will only receive our newsletter after this (second) measure has been activated.

5.3 Consent for newsletter subscription

We only use the e-mail address given with your consent to subscribe to the newsletter and, if applicable, the details of your name to transmit advertising by electronic mail to you. This transmission of electronic advertising is justified on the basis of your consent under Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

Once you have given your consent to the receipt of newsletters by e-mail for the above purpose, you may at any time revoke your consent to us by e-mail, mail or fax. After such a deregistration we will delete your contact data immediately from our customer magazine and newsletter distributors, unless you have expressly consented to a further use of your data or we reserve the right to further data usage, which is permitted by law and about which we have notified you in this policy.

The declaration of consent you give us is recorded electronically for the purpose of verifiability. You can view your declaration of consent at any time online in your account. When registering for the newsletter, we save the date and time of the newsletter subscription in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date.

5.4 Storage Period

We store your e-mail address, if applicable your name and the declaration of consent for the newsletter or customer magazine dispatch for the duration of the newsletter or customer magazine subscription or until the revocation of your declaration of consent (cancellation of the newsletter or the customer magazine). Any other data collected as part of the newsletter or customer magazine dispatch will be deleted after seven days.

Automated decision making or profiling does not take place.

Your browser saves the cookies in the form of a readable text file as soon as you visit our website.  If you are registered with us, the cookies help us to recognise your device (computer, tablet or smartphone) the next time you visit our website. Certain cookies may contain personal information.

6.2 Which cookies do we use?

Some of the cookies we use enable you to use our online services (these are called session cookies). If this cookie is switched off, it is not possible to access website.  These session cookies are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser.

6.3 Why do we use cookies and under what legal basis do we use them?

The cookies we use do not store any information that identifies you or makes you identifiable as a person. Rather, through these cookies we obtain general and anonymous information about visitors to our online services, services that have been accessed, browsers and operating systems used and from which cities our visitors come. We only record IP addresses in abbreviated form so that individual identification and association is not possible.

Data collection with cookies is used in order to gain knowledge for optimising the functionality and content of our online services. This is discussed in detail below.

6.4 How can you switch off cookies?

You can adjust your browser so that you can manage the cookies’ settings and individually decide on whether to accept or exclude them in general or just in certain cases.

The Help Menu of each browser explains how to change your cookie settings and can be found under the following links:

6.5 Do we use third-party cookies?

From time to time we work with advertising partners who help us make our website more interesting for you.  In this regard, when you visit our online services, cookies from partner companies may also be stored on your device (third-party cookies).  Information about how these cookies are used and the extent of their data collection are explained in more detail below.  The third-party cookies used by us are in part transmitted for data processing in the USA.  These providers (e.g. Google, Facebook) have agreed to comply with the data protection provisions of the EU-US Privacy Shield, the legal framework for the transatlantic transfer of data agreed between the European Commission and the United States (IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2016/1250 OF THE COMMISSION of 12 July 2016 pursuant to Directive 95/46 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield (notified under document C (2016) 4176)).  In addition, these providers are registered with the US Department of Commerce's "Privacy Shield" programme.

7. Integration of social media

7.1 Integration of Vimeo Videos

We use Vimeo for the integration of videos.

The provider of the Vimeo service is: Vimeo, LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, NY, New York 10011. We use plugins from Vimeo. If you access web pages containing this type of plugin, a connection is made to the Vimeo servers and the plugin is displayed. Information about which of our web pages you have visited will be transmitted to the Vimeo server.  If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo (note: this is not necessary for viewing our videos), Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account.  When using the plugins by, for example, clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account.  You can prevent this assignation by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.

For more information on data processing and privacy practices used by Vimeo, visit

7.2 Integration of YouTube Videos

We have integrated YouTube videos that can be played directly from our website via YouTube. "Advanced privacy mode" applies here, so that YouTube only collects personal information if you play the video. We have no control over the collection of data through YouTube.

This service is provided by: YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. This provider and its services belong to Google.

If you start playing embedded YouTube videos, the "YouTube" provider uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to "YouTube", this includes, among other things, capturing video statistics, improving user-friendliness and preventing abusive practices.  If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click on a video.  If you do not wish to associate with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for non-logged-in users) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR solely on the basis of a legitimate interest of Google in the display of personalised advertising, market research and / or tailor-made design of its online services. You have a right to object to the formation of these user profiles.  To exercise this right, please contact YouTube directly.

Regardless of any playback of the embedded video, every time you visit this website, it will be linked to the Google Network “DoubleClick”, which may trigger further data processing without our having any influence.

When you view a video on our YouTube channel, your information may be transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. Please refer to the above-mentioned information about Google Conversion Tracking in relation to this data transfer to the US.

Further information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the provider's privacy policy at: or

If you are a member of a social network, you can share our site content with other members of your social network by activating the button.  We have no influence on the personal data collected and stored by third parties or on the content of their pages.  As part of our data protection solution only the IP address of our server, and not your IP address, is transmitted to these services once you have activated a social plug-in by clicking on it.

7.4 Why have we included Videos/Social-Plug-ins?

Use of social plug-ins is exclusively for the purpose of optimising the design and display of our website for our customers.  As such, we are pursuing the legitimate interest of optimising the provision of our services, which is permitted under Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.  We do not collect personally identifiable information in connection with the use of YouTube videos or social plug-ins.
