Storage of Access Data in Server Logfiles
You can visit our websites without providing personal information. We only store access date in so-called server logfiles, such as the name of the requested file, the date and time of the retrieval, the quantity of data transmitted and the accessing provider. The data is only analysed in order to ensure an error-free use of our website as well as to improve our range of products and do not allow us to deduce any information regarding your person.

We collect personal data only if you disclose them to us voluntarily in connection with your order, opening of a customer account or when contacting us (e.g. via email or contact form).

After the settlement of the contract or closing of your customer account, your data is blocked for further use and will be deleted at the end of the storage periods required by tax law and commercial law, provided that you have not expressly agreed to the further use of your data. We may also make additional use of your data if there are legal grounds for doing so and will provide you with the necessary information. You can close your customer account at any time by sending a message to the following contact address or by performing a designated function in your customer account.
