Registration on our website

Nature and purpose of the processing:
When registering for the use of our personalised services some personal data is collected, such as your name, address, and contact and communication data (e.g. telephone number and email address). If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we offer only to registered users. Registered users also have the option, when necessary, to amend or delete the data provided upon registration at any time. Of course, we will also give you access to the personal data concerning you that we are storing at any time.

Legal basis:
The data entered when registering is processed on the basis of the user’s consent (point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR).

The only recipients of the data are the controller and, when necessary, technical service providers who act as processors, running and maintaining our website.

Storage period:
Data is only stored in this regard for as long as the appropriate consent is given. It is then deleted, unless there are any statutory retention obligations. To contact us in this regard, please use the contact details provided at the end of this data protection statement.

Mandatory or necessary provision:
Your personal data is given voluntarily, solely with your consent. If you do not provide your personal data, we cannot give you access to the content and services we offer.

Contact form

Nature and purpose of the processing:
The data you enter is stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. It is necessary for a valid email address to be entered for this purpose. This is used to assign the enquiry and the subsequent response to it. Providing further data is optional.

Legal basis:
The data entered into the contact form is processed solely on the basis of a legitimate interest (point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR).
We provide the contact form because we want to make it easy for you to contact us. The data you provide is stored for the purpose of handling the enquiry and for any possible further queries.
If you contact us to request a quote, the data entered into the contact form is processed to take steps prior to entering into a contract (point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR).

The only recipients of the data are the controller and, when necessary, the processor.

Storage period:
Data is erased 6 months after handling the enquiry at the latest.
When a contract is concluded, we are subject to the statutory retention obligations of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB) and will erase your data after 6 years.

Mandatory or necessary provision:
Your personal data is given voluntarily, solely with your consent. Unfortunately, we cannot contact you without your consent.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

Nature and purpose of the processing:
So that our consent is displayed correctly and in an attractive way in different browsers, we use “Google Web Fonts” from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”) to display fonts.
You can find the privacy policy of the library operator Google here:

Legal basis
The legal basis for the integration of Google Web Fonts and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (point (a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR).

Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is therefore theoretically possible for the operator (Google, in this case) to collect data; however, it is currently unclear whether this is the case and, if so, for what purposes.

Storage period:
We do not collect any personal data using Google Web Fonts.
You can find further information on Google Web Fonts at and in Google’s privacy policy:

Third-country transfer:
Google processes your data in the USA and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield

Mandatory or necessary provision:
You are neither legally nor contractually required to provide personal data. However, the content of standard fonts cannot be displayed correctly if you do not do so.

Withdrawal of consent:
The programming language JavaScript is usually used to display content. Therefore, you can object to data processing by disabling JavaScript in your browser or installing a JavaScript blocker. Please be aware that doing so may restrict the features of the website.

We reserve the right to amend this data protection statement to ensure it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection statement, e.g. when introducing new services.
