We are pleased to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in our company

The protection of any personal information collected, processed and used while you are visiting our homepage is a matter of great importance to us. Your details are protected in line with legal requirements. In the following, you can read what information is collected during your visit to the homepage, and how it is used.

1. Department responsible:
The department which operates this page, and is thus responsible in terms of the Data Protection Act is:

2. Collection of and processing data:
Each time someone accesses our homepage and each time a file stored on our homepage is opened, data appertaining to this activity is temporarily stored and used in a log file. Here are details of the information that is saved with each access/registration:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of registration
  • Page opened / name of file opened
  • Web browser and domain enquired about
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Note of whether access was successful or not

We store data for in-company, system-related and statistical purposes, and the process is essential for organisational and technical reasons.

3. Personal information:
Personal information (§3 sect. 1 of the Federal Privacy Protection Act "BDSG") includes details of a personal (e.g. name, address, date of birth, profession, title) or factual nature (e.g. income, industrial/commercial sector, services offered) relating to a defined or definable individual.

4. Storage of personal information:
Beyond this, no personal information is collected, unless you give this information of your own free will, for instance in the context of an enquiry or registration. No such personal information is sold to third parties, or marketed in any other way.

5. Use and transfer of personal information:
Any personal information with which you might have provided us will be used only to answer your own queries, to process any contracts entered into with you, and for technical administration.
Your personal information will not be forwarded to third parties or otherwise transferred, unless it is essential either for the purpose of contract handling (in particular the transfer of order-related data to suppliers) or invoicing, or you have given your prior consent. You are entitled, at any time, to withdraw your consent, with effect for the future.

Any personal information which has been stored will be deleted if you withdraw your consent to its being saved, provided it is not necessary for us to be in possession of such information to satisfy the purpose for which it was saved, or if its storage is forbidden for other legal reasons.

6. External links:

We would like to make it perfectly clear that we have no influence over the question of adherence to the data protection regulations of the provider of an external link. For this reason, we accept no liability for external links to third-party sites.

7. Right to be informed:
You are entitled, at any time, free of charge, and without stating reasons, to request details of any data on yourself that we have stored. You can, at any time, instruct us to block, correct or delete data we have collected. You can also, at any time, address any questions, ideas or complaints you might have regarding data protection on our web site and in our company to our data protection officer.

8. Technical security:
By implementing every technical and organisational measure possible, we strive to save personal information in such a way as to prevent it from being accessed by third parties. Our technical and organisational security measures are constantly updated, in order to safeguard any data we have received and protect it as far as possible from unauthorised access, unlawful deletion or manipulation, or accidental loss.

9. Storage of personal information for advertising purposes:
Your personal details will not be stored for advertising purposes without your express consent.

10. Use of web tracking
10.1 This website uses the web analysis service Matomo to analyse user access to the website.

10.2 For this analysis, cookies are saved on your computer. Any information collected in this way is stored by the service provider, solely on its server in Germany. Should you prevent the cookies from being stored, we draw your attention to the fact that this might possibly result in your not being able to use this website to the full. It is possible to make settings in your browser to prevent cookies from being stored.

10.3 This website uses Matomo with the "AnonymizeIP" function. This ensures that IP addresses are processed in truncated form, making it impossible to trace them to a specific user. The IP address sent to us by your browser via Matomo is not merged with other data collected by us.

10.4 The Matomo program is an open source project. For information of the third party supplier on the subject of data protection, see

11. Use of cookies:
Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your web browser for the duration of your stay on our web site, and serve to record your online activities. Cookies cannot damage your computer, nor do they carry viruses.

We use two types of cookies: on the one hand, "session cookies", which are held in temporary storage only for as long as you are visiting our web site, after which they are deleted; and on the other, "permanent cookies", which are used to retain information about visitors who make repeated visits to our web site. The point of utilising these cookies is to enable us to provide optimum user guidance, to "recognise" you, and, when you when you visit the site again, present as varied a web site as possible, along with new contents. You can deactivate cookies by adjusting your browser settings. However, this may make some of the functions on our web site unusable.

12. Use of social media plugins
12.1 We currently use the following social media plugins: LinkedIn and YouTube. We utilise the so-called 2-click solution here. This means that, as a general rule, if you visit our website, no personal data is passed on to the providers of these plugins to begin with. The provider of a plugin can be identified by the marking in the greyed out box, by means of the initial or the appropriate button. Only if you click on one of the plugins is personal data transmitted: activation of the plugin results in data automatically being transmitted to the relevant plugin provider and being stored there (with US providers, in the USA). We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor do we know the full extent of data acquisition, the purposes for which it was acquired, or storage periods. As the plugin provider carries out data acquisition via cookies in particular, we recommend that, before clicking on the greyed out box, you first use the security settings of your browser to delete all cookies.

12.2 If you activate a plugin, the plugin provider receives the information that you have accessed that particular subsite of our online service range. In addition, the data mentioned in this statement is also transmitted, although according to information provided by the relative providers in Germany, with Facebook und Xing, only an anonymised IP is acquired. This happens regardless of whether or not you have an account with this plugin provider and have logged on. If you have logged on to the plugin provider, this data is assigned directly to your account. If you press the activated button and, for instance, link the site, the plugin provider will also store this information in your user account, and publicly notify your contacts. If you do not wish the data to be assigned to your profile with the plugin provider, you must log out before activating the button.

12.3 The plugin provider stores this data as usage profiles, which it then uses for advertising or market research purposes, and/or the needs-based design of its website. An analysis of this type is carried out (also for users who have not logged on) for the presentation of needs-based advertising, and to inform other people using the social network of your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and to exercise this right, you must contact the plugin provider concerned.

12.4 Further information concerning the purpose and scope of data acquisition and its processing by the plugin provider can be found in the data privacy statements of these providers given below. There you will also find additional information on your rights in this respect and setting options to protect your private sphere.

12.5 Addresses of the providers and URLs with their data protection information

a) LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA; .

b) YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; .

13. Further information:
