Data protection

We are delighted that you have visited our website and shown an interest in our company and our services. We take the protection of your privacy and your personal data, which you have made available to us, very seriously. The observance of the provisions of the German data protection act is a matter of course for us. Below we would like to inform you of what data we may collect and how we handle it. 

Which personal data will be collected and processed?

You can visit our website without there being any requirement for us to have any personal data from you. We learn the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us and the individual pages that you visit on our site. Only if you utilise particular services will personal data be collected and processed. 

For what purposes is this personal data collected and processed?

The personal data is then only collected if you request product information (brochures, catalogues, price lists, etc.) in our request area. Insofar as you use our request area, in general only the data that we require to fulfil your requests is collected. Insofar as we request further data from you, this is only voluntary information. The processing of the personal data is implemented exclusively for the fulfilment of the requested service and to protect our own business interests. 

Will personal data be passed on to third parties?

We will not disclose, hand over, sell or market your personal data by any other means, to other companies or institutions without your express declaration of consent. This does not apply if we are obligated to disclose and hand over your data for legal reasons or due to a court judgement.
