External hosting

This website is hosted by an external service provider (hoster). We would like to point out that the operation of our website and the servers are hosted by the provider commissioned by us, Webflow, Inc., 398 11th Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103 in the USA. Further information on Webflow's privacy policy can be found at the following link:

The personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster's servers. This may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, meta and communication data, web page accesses and other data generated via a website. The hoster is used for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our hoster will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfill its service obligations and follow our instructions regarding this data.

Conclusion of a contract for commissioned processing

In order to ensure data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded a contract for commissioned processing with [Webflow | Microworks GmbH) on the basis of Art. 28 DSGVO in conjunction with the EU standard contractual clauses.

Purposes of data processing by the controller and third parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those stated. We will only share your personal data with third parties if:

- you have given your express consent to this,

- the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you,

- the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation,

- the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data.

Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions. If the processing is based on your consent, the corresponding data will be deleted upon revocation of your consent. Your IP address will be anonymized after 30 days and completely deleted after 180 days.

Collection of general information when you visit our website

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information includes, for example, your IP address, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, it is processed for the following purposes:

- Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,

- Ensuring the smooth use of our website,

- evaluating system security and stability, and

- for other administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, order processors.

Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Provision of chargeable services

In order to provide services for which a charge is made, we request additional data, such as payment details, in order to process your order. We store this data in our systems until the statutory retention periods have expired.

Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. In this case, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. In this case, the processing remains lawful until the time of the revocation.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO.

The processing operations on this website are primarily based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden.

Our legitimate interest is the operation and maintenance of the Internet presence in order to be visible on the market and so that customers and interested parties can contact us.

Recipients of the data

In the course of calling up the website your data could reach the following parties: Order processors, which we use for the purposes of


When you visit our LinkedIn presence, our purpose of data processing is to provide information about our company including its products and services. This is associated with the possibility for users of the network to communicate with us in a targeted manner. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest here is to share information with users and to communicate with them.

We place advertisements on LinkedIn. In doing so, we use so-called insight data provided by LinkedIn. With their help, we can evaluate the behavior of users in connection with the interaction on our site. The target group-specific adaptation of advertising is a legitimate interest of our company. The responsibility for this data collection lies in part with LinkedIn. A joint responsibility agreement has been concluded with LinkedIn. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO in connection with joint responsibility. You can find the joint responsibility agreement here: Should you assert your data subject rights against us, we will forward this to LinkedIn in accordance with the agreement.

Transfer in third countries

A transfer to third countries will only take place in accordance with the standard contractual clauses as well as additional measures according to Art. 46 (c) DSGVO or to countries for which an adequacy decision is available.

Obligation to provide your data 

There is no obligation to provide your data. A possible consequence of not providing it may be that the presentation of the website is not optimal or that it is not possible for you to access our website or use the services offered. In the case of the use of the contact form or the newsletter, the consequence of non-provision is that we cannot answer your inquiry or send you the newsletter.

Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services.
