These cookies enable you or us to take advantage of certain services offered by the third party

Cookies have a variety of functions. Many cookies are technically essential since certain website functions would not work

may be the analysis of user patterns or the display of promotional messages.
Cookies that are required for the performance of the electronic communications transaction or to provide certain functions
you want to use (e.g. the shopping cart function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator
has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the technically error free and optimised provision of the operator’s services.
If a corresponding agreement has been requested (e.g. an agreement to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place
exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time.

information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract
or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based on our legitimate interest
in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or on your agreement
(Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) if this has been requested.
The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the data,
revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being archived no longer exists

in particular retention periods.
Request by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request)
will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or
if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent
(Article 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest
in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.
The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your consent
to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions –
