6. Collection of personal data for informational use

(1) When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. when you do not log in to use the website, register or otherwise provide us with information, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data mentioned under 5.2, which your browser transmits in order to technically enable you to visit the website.

(2) When using the website, so-called cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in the browser you use and through which certain information flows to the place that sets the cookie (in this case us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve here only to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective.
For example, we use cookies to identify you for follow-up visits if you have an account with us. Otherwise you will have to log in again for each visit.

a) This website uses cookies to the following extent:
Transient cookies (temporary use)
Persistent cookies (temporary use)
Third-party cookies (from third parties)
Flash cookies (permanent use)

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which different requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This will allow your computer to be recognized when you return to the website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

d) You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, refuse the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.

If you do not wish the Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. „Better Privacy“ for Mozilla Firefox ( or Adobe Flash killer cookie for Google Chrome.

8. Liability for contents

The contents of our pages have been prepared with the greatest care. However, we cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the contents. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with § 7 Section 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG). According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, we are not obliged as service providers to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete violation of the law. As soon as we become aware of such violations of the law, we will remove these contents immediately.


9. Liability for links

Our pages may contain links to external websites of third parties over whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately.


10. Data security

We protect our website and other systems through appropriate technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons. Despite regular checks, however, complete protection against all risks is not possible.
Our website uses the industry standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for encryption. This ensures the confidentiality of your personal data via the Internet. You can tell whether an encrypted transmission is taking place by the closed key or lock symbol in the display of your browser.


11. Passing on of data

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties,
– if you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) DSGOV;
– if the transfer is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b) DSGVO;
– if we are legally obliged to pass on the data within the meaning of Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 c) DSGVO;
– if the disclosure of the data is in the public interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 e) DSGVO or;
– if the disclosure of data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, provided that your interests in the protection of your data do not prevail.

We process the following categories of data: master data (such as company, contact person, address, if applicable), communication data, contract data, receivables data, payment and default information, if applicable. See the above information.

14. Duration of the storage of personal data

Your data will be stored by us for as long as it is required for the respective purposes on which the processing is based. In addition, we only store data insofar as we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. due to statutory retention obligations.


15. Information on the right of objection

An objection to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 e) (data processing for the public interest) or f) (data processing to protect legitimate interests on the basis of a balance of interests) is possible at any time in accordance with Article 21 DSGVO. In the event of an objection, the personal data will no longer be processed unless compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection are proven, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Please send your objection to the e-mail address


16. Information on the right of withdrawal

If you have given us your consent to the processing of personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Of course, this also applies to declarations of consent given to us before 25 May 2018 (before the DSGVO applies). The revocation of a consent can always only be valid for the future.
