Privacy Policy

Your data is safe with us. We treat your personal data responsibly, taking into account all relevant provisions of the applicable data protection law.

Use of personal data

We only collect, use and transfer your personal data to third parties if this is permitted by law or if your consent to the collection of data is given. Personal data means any information that can be used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you - such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

We process and store personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is stipulated by the European legislator or other legislators by law or regulation to which the controller (responsible for the data protection) is subject to. If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with legal requirements.

We may share your information with other companies in our group to provide certain services. Group companies may be located in countries that do not ensure an equivalent level of data protection. We guarantee appropriate data protection through contractual agreements with the Group companies. You expressly consent to such data transfers.

Data Security / Secure Data Transmission

Through technical and organizational measures, we secure our IT systems against unintentional admittance, access, transfer, entry, loss and distribution as well as destruction and alteration by unauthorized persons. The data transmission of personal data on our websites is protected according to up-to-date technical standards.

Newsletter subscription

The users of our website can sign up for a newsletter. Signing up for a newsletter requires registration of a valid email address. There will be no disclosure of personal data that is collected within the newsletter service to third parties. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link at the end of each newsletter.

Your rights

If you contact us via the contact options offered, your contact details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your request. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties. If your request is not in conflict with a legal duty to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have corrected incorrect data and to have deleted your personal data (for the future).

You can object to the processing of your data at any time. We will no longer process your personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate that compelling legitimate interests override your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing of the data is intended for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to data processings - for the future - at any time without giving a reason.

Ask Nicely

With Ask Nicely we collect customer and user feedback.

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), for the technical recording of customer and user feedback, we use Ask Nicely, a product of Ask Nicely Limited, Lvl 1, 63 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby 1011, Auckland, New Zealand.

New Zealand has been confirmed by the European Commission as having an adequate level of data protection by the Adequacy Decision and is therefore a safe third country in the sense of Art. 45 GDPR.

When using feedback functions, a connection to Ask Nicely’s IT systems is established and data entered is stored there. Ask Nicely is used to automatically send survey e-mails to receive customer ratings and other customer feedback. When customers respond to such a request, information such as the e-mail address is used to contact them to respond to a review or feedback, for example. The feedback and data provided will not be published. If users do not wish to provide customer feedback, there is an option to unsubscribe by clicking on the unsubscribe button located at the bottom of the email received.
