The follo­wing priva­cy poli­cy is inten­ded to info­rm you in par­ti­cu­lar about the type, sco­pe, pur­po­se, dura­tion, and legal basis for the pro­ce­ssing of such data either under our own con­t­rol or in con­jun­ction with others. We also info­rm you below about the thi­rd-par­ty compo­nen­ts we use to opti­mi­ze our websi­te and imp­rove the user expe­rien­ce whi­ch may resu­lt in said thi­rd par­ties also pro­ce­ssing data they colle­ct and con­t­rol.

II. The rig­hts of users and data subje­cts

With rega­rd to the data pro­ce­ssing to be desc­ri­bed in more detail below, users and data subje­cts have the rig­ht

  • to con­fi­r­ma­tion of whe­ther data con­cer­ning them is being pro­ce­ssed, info­r­ma­tion about the data being pro­ce­ssed, fur­ther info­r­ma­tion about the natu­re of the data pro­ce­ssing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
  • to cor­re­ct or comple­te inco­r­re­ct or inco­mple­te data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
  • to the imme­dia­te dele­tion of data con­cer­ning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alter­na­tive­ly, if fur­ther pro­ce­ssing is nece­ssa­ry as sti­pu­la­ted in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to rest­ri­ct said pro­ce­ssing per Art. 18 GDPR;
  • to receive copies of the data con­cer­ning them and/or provi­ded by them and to have the same tran­smi­tted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
  • to file complain­ts with the supervi­so­ry autho­ri­ty if they believe that data con­cer­ning them is being pro­ce­ssed by the con­t­ro­ller in brea­ch of data pro­te­ction provi­sions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addi­tion, the con­t­ro­ller is obli­ged to info­rm all reci­pien­ts to whom it disclo­ses data of any such cor­re­ctions, dele­tions, or rest­ri­ctions pla­ced on pro­ce­ssing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obli­ga­tion does not apply if such noti­fi­ca­tion is impo­ssi­ble or invo­lves a disp­ro­po­r­tio­na­te effo­rt. Never­the­le­ss, users have a rig­ht to info­r­ma­tion about the­se reci­pien­ts.

Like­wi­se, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subje­cts have the rig­ht to obje­ct to the controller’s futu­re pro­ce­ssing of their data pur­suant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In par­ti­cu­lar, an obje­ction to data pro­ce­ssing for the pur­po­se of dire­ct adver­ti­sing is per­mi­ssi­ble.

III. Info­r­ma­tion about the data pro­ce­ssing

Your data pro­ce­ssed when using our websi­te will be dele­ted or blo­cked as soon as the pur­po­se for its sto­ra­ge cea­ses to apply, provi­ded the dele­tion of the same is not in brea­ch of any sta­tu­to­ry sto­ra­ge obli­ga­tions or unle­ss other­wi­se sti­pu­la­ted below.


  1. a) Session coo­kies

We use coo­kies on our websi­te. Coo­kies are sma­ll text files or other sto­ra­ge tech­no­lo­gies sto­red on your compu­ter by your bro­wser. The­se coo­kies pro­ce­ss cer­tain spe­ci­fic info­r­ma­tion about you, such as your bro­wser, loca­tion data, or IP add­re­ss.

This pro­ce­ssing makes our websi­te more user-frien­dly, effi­cient, and secu­re, allo­wing us, for exa­mple, to display our websi­te in diffe­rent lan­gua­ges or to offer a sho­pping cart fun­ction.

The legal basis for such pro­ce­ssing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, inso­far as the­se coo­kies are used to colle­ct data to ini­tia­te or pro­ce­ss con­t­ra­ctual rela­tion­shi­ps.

If the pro­ce­ssing does not serve to ini­tia­te or pro­ce­ss a con­t­ra­ct, our legi­ti­ma­te inte­re­st lies in imp­roving the fun­ctio­na­li­ty of our websi­te. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

When you clo­se your bro­wser, the­se session coo­kies are dele­ted.

  1. b) Thi­rd-par­ty coo­kies

If nece­ssa­ry, our websi­te may also use coo­kies from compa­nies with whom we coo­pe­ra­te for the pur­po­se of adver­ti­sing, ana­lyzing, or imp­roving the fea­tu­res of our websi­te.

Plea­se refer to the follo­wing info­r­ma­tion for detai­ls, in par­ti­cu­lar for the legal basis and pur­po­se of such thi­rd-par­ty colle­ction and pro­ce­ssing of data colle­cted throu­gh coo­kies.

  1. c) Disa­bling coo­kies

You can refu­se the use of coo­kies by changing the settings on your bro­wser. Like­wi­se, you can use the bro­wser to dele­te coo­kies that have alrea­dy been sto­red. However, the ste­ps and mea­su­res requi­red vary, depen­ding on the bro­wser you use. If you have any que­stions, plea­se use the help fun­ction or con­su­lt the docu­men­ta­tion for your bro­wser or con­ta­ct its maker for suppo­rt. Bro­wser settings can­not prevent so-called fla­sh coo­kies from being set. Instead, you will need to chan­ge the setting of your Fla­sh pla­yer. The ste­ps and mea­su­res requi­red for this also depend on the Fla­sh pla­yer you are using. If you have any que­stions, plea­se use the help fun­ction or con­su­lt the docu­men­ta­tion for your Fla­sh pla­yer or con­ta­ct its maker for suppo­rt.

If you prevent or rest­ri­ct the insta­lla­tion of coo­kies, not all of the fun­ctions on our site may be fully usa­ble.


If you con­ta­ct us via email or the con­ta­ct form, the data you provi­de will be used for the pur­po­se of pro­ce­ssing your reque­st. We must have this data in order to pro­ce­ss and answer your inqui­ry; other­wi­se we will not be able to answer it in full or at all.

The legal basis for this data pro­ce­ssing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Your data will be dele­ted once we have fully answe­red your inqui­ry and the­re is no fur­ther legal obli­ga­tion to sto­re your data, such as if an order or con­t­ra­ct resu­lted the­re­f­rom.

User posts, commen­ts, and ratings

We offer you the oppo­r­tu­ni­ty to post que­stions, answers, opi­nions, and ratings on our websi­te, herei­na­fter refer­red to join­tly as 「posts.」 If you make use of this oppo­r­tu­ni­ty, we will pro­ce­ss and publi­sh your post, the date and time you submi­tted it, and any pseu­don­ym you may have used.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. You may revo­ke your prior con­sent under Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR with futu­re effe­ct. All you have to do is info­rm us that you are revo­king your con­sent.

In addi­tion, we will also pro­ce­ss your IP add­re­ss and email add­re­ss. The IP add­re­ss is pro­ce­ssed becau­se we mig­ht have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­re­st in taking or suppo­r­ting fur­ther action if your post inf­rin­ges the rig­hts of thi­rd par­ties and/or is other­wi­se unla­wful.

In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legi­ti­ma­te inte­re­st lies in any legal defen­se we may have to mount.


We use You­Tu­be on our websi­te. This is a video por­tal ope­ra­ted by You­Tu­be LLC, 901 Cher­ry Ave, 94066 San Bru­no, CA, USA, herei­na­fter refer­red to as 「You­Tu­be」.

You­Tu­be is a subsi­dia­ry of Goo­g­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don Hou­se, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Irland, herei­na­fter refer­red to as 「Goo­g­le」.

Throu­gh cer­ti­fi­ca­tion acco­r­ding to the EU-US Priva­cy Shie­ld

Goo­g­le and its subsi­dia­ry You­Tu­be gua­ran­tee that they will follow the EU’s data pro­te­ction regu­la­tions when pro­ce­ssing data in the Uni­ted Sta­tes.

We use You­Tu­be in its advan­ced priva­cy mode to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legi­ti­ma­te inte­re­st lies in imp­roving the qua­li­ty of our websi­te. Acco­r­ding to You­Tu­be, the advan­ced priva­cy mode means that the data spe­ci­fied below will only be tran­smi­tted to the You­Tu­be server if you actua­lly sta­rt a video.

Without this mode, a con­ne­ction to the You­Tu­be server in the USA will be esta­bli­shed as soon as you acce­ss any of our webpa­ges on whi­ch a You­Tu­be video is embe­dded.

This con­ne­ction is requi­red in order to be able to display the respe­ctive video on our websi­te within your bro­wser. You­Tu­be will reco­rd and pro­ce­ss at a mini­mum your IP add­re­ss, the date and time the video was displa­yed, as well as the websi­te you visi­ted. In addi­tion, a con­ne­ction to the Dou­ble­Cli­ck adver­ti­sing netwo­rk of Goo­g­le is esta­bli­shed.

If you are log­ged in to You­Tu­be when you acce­ss our site, You­Tu­be will assi­gn the con­ne­ction info­r­ma­tion to your You­Tu­be account. To prevent this, you must either log out of You­Tu­be befo­re visi­ting our site or make the app­ro­p­ria­te settings in your You­Tu­be account.

For the pur­po­se of fun­ctio­na­li­ty and ana­lysis of usa­ge behavior, You­Tu­be per­ma­nen­tly sto­res coo­kies on your devi­ce via your bro­wser. If you do not agree to this pro­ce­ssing, you have the option of preven­ting the insta­lla­tion of coo­kies by making the app­ro­p­ria­te settings in your bro­wser. Fur­ther detai­ls can be found in the section about coo­kies above.
