Your rights as a data subject

First of all, we would like to inform you here about your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardized in Articles 15 - 22 of the EU GDPR. This includes:

  • The right to cancellation (Art. 17 EU GDPR),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 EU GDPR),
  • The right to data transfer (Art. 20 EU GDPR),

To assert these rights, please contact us at: The same applies if you have questions about data processing within our company. You also have a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority.

Rights of objection

Please note the following in connection with rights of objection:

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without giving reasons. This also applies to profiling in so far as it is connected with direct advertising.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made form-free by contacting:

In the event that we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you can object to such processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

The processing of your personal data complies with the provisions of the EU GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. Legal bases for data processing result in particular from Art. 6 EU GDPR.

We use your data for business initiation, to fulfill contractual and legal obligations, to execute the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen the customer relationship, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising. During the processing of your personal data the regulations of the EU GDPR, the BDSG (new) and other relevant legal regulations are always observed.

Your personal data will be processed exclusively for the purposes mentioned above or if there is a legal obligation to process (e.g. due to tax regulations) (Art. 6 para. 1 c EU GDPR).

Your consent is also a data protection permission regulation. Here we inform you about the purposes of data processing and about your right of revocation.

If the consent also refers to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly point this out to you in the consent. Processing of special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 of the EU GDPR only takes place if this is required by legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in the exclusion of processing prevails.

Transfer to third parties

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the context of legal regulations or with appropriate consent. Otherwise, data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are required to do so by mandatory legal provisions (transfer to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).

Recipients of data/categories of recipients

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need it to fulfill their contractual and legal obligations.

In many cases, service providers (e.g. shipping, payment services, credit assessment, IT service providers, distributors) support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection agreements have been concluded with all service providers.

Transfer to a third country/Intention to transfer to a third country

Data will only be transferred to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is necessary for the performance of the contractual obligation, is required by law or you have given us your consent therefor.

If we transfer your personal data to a service provider or to group companies outside the European Economic Area, we guarantee compliance with the data protection level.

Data storage time

We store your data as long as it is needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continues to be (must be) stored. This applies in particular to commercial or tax storage obligations (e.g. German Commercial Code, Fiscal Code, etc.). If there are no further storage obligations, the data will be routinely deleted once the purpose has been achieved.

In addition, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within statutory limitation periods of up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.

Secure transmission of your data

In order to protect the data stored by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously checked in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The data exchange from and to our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the current encryption protocols. In addition, we offer our users content encryption for contact forms and applications via our online portal. Only we can decrypt this data. It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (e.g. post).
