If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will collect and store the data you enter during registration (e.g. your name, address or e-mail address) exclusively for pre-contractual services, for the fulfillment of the contract or for the purpose of customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders with us or to be able to offer you the so-called memo function). At the same time, we then store the IP address and the date of your registration along with the time. Of course, this data will not be passed on to third parties.
In the course of the further registration process, your consent to this processing will be obtained and reference will be made to this data protection declaration. The data collected by us in this process will be used exclusively for the provision of the customer account.
Insofar as you consent to this processing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing.
If the opening of the customer account also serves pre-contractual measures or the fulfillment of the contract, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO.

"Facebook" social plug-in

In the EU, this service is in turn operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, hereinafter both referred to as "Facebook".
Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield ("EU-US Privacy Shield").
Facebook guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website.
Facebook provides further information about the possible plug-ins and their respective functions at
If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our website that you visit, your internet browser downloads a representation of the plug-in from Facebook's servers in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Facebook to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.
If you are logged in to Facebook while you visit one of our web pages provided with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in from your specific visit will be recognized by Facebook. Facebook may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. If, for example, you use the so-called "Like" button of Facebook, this information will be stored in your Facebook user account and possibly published via the platform of Facebook. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or prevent the loading of the Facebook plug-in by using an add-on for your internet browser.
We use YouTube on our website. This is a video portal of YouTube LLC., 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as "YouTube".
YouTube is a subsidiary of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google".
Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield ("EU-US Privacy Shield").
Google, and thus also its subsidiary YouTube, guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.
We use YouTube in connection with the "Enhanced Privacy Mode" function in order to be able to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the "enhanced data protection mode" function means that the data described in more detail below is only transmitted to the YouTube server when you actually start a video.
Without this "Enhanced Privacy Mode", a connection to the YouTube server in the USA is established as soon as you call up one of our Internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded.
This connection is necessary in order to be able to display the respective video on our website via your Internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time, as well as the website you visited. In addition, a connection to Google's advertising network "DoubleClick" is established.
If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.
For the purpose of functionality as well as for the analysis of user behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your end device via your Internet browser. If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option to prevent the storage of cookies by a setting in your Internet browser. You can find more information on this above under "Cookies".
