Data protection

It is usually possible to use our website without providing any personal data. If personal data (name, address or e-mail addresses, for example) is collected on our site, it is always on a voluntary basis to the greatest extent possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.


Your details on forms, queries and during registration

Further personal data is only collected if you provide it voluntarily, when making an enquiry, for example, or registering with us. Your attention will be drawn to this expressly at the appropriate points before the data is collected. If you provide this personal data to us, we shall only use it to answer your queries, to process contracts concluded with you and for technical administration. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or communicated in any other way if this is necessary to process a contract, including, for example, the provision of order details to suppliers, for billing purposes or if you have given your express consent in advance. You have the right to withdraw any consent that you have given at any time, with effect from that point on. To do so, please send an e-mail to or write to the postal address given below.
We wish to draw your attention to the fact that data transfer over the internet (e.g. in e-mail communication) may not be secure. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Use of the contact details given as a requirement of the legal notice by third parties to send advertising and information materials that have not been expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the site expressly reserve the right to take legal steps if unsolicited advertising materials, such as spam e-mails, are sent.
