Personal Data

These data include e.g. the type and version of your browser, the kind of your used operating system, the website you visited previously, date and time of the server request as well as the client's file query (file name and URL). We use these data anonymously for statistical evaluations, whereby no assignment is made to the respective user.

The Purpose of Collecting Personal Data

If our website includes the possibility to input your personal or business data – e.g. if you book a trip, order a catalog or our newsletter or write to us via the contact form – you submit your data voluntarily. Information you provide to us (name, occupation company, your address, telephone number, fax number or e-mail address) will be stored.
In order to receive certain services, it is essential that we collect certain information from you (such as your address for sending a catalog). In accordance with legal regulations and in terms of data minimisation, we usually collect only those data that are needed to provide the service. The indication of further information is always voluntary and marked as such.These personal data are only used for the respective purpose (e.g. preparation of an offer, order) will be removed afterwards, unless you have expressly agreed into another usage. As far as statutory storage requirements exist, the processing of the data is restricted until the expiration of these retention requirements, and thereafter the data is finally deleted.An additional use of your e-mail address will only take place if you expressly provide us with your data for newsletters on new products and current topics. In the event you do no longer wish to receive such information, you can object to such use of your data at any time via fax or e-mail or by calling us, without incurring additional costs other than the basic transmission costs. We only use your data for other marketing purposes if we informed you in advance about the intended usage and you explicitly approved it. The cancellation of newsletters and the withdrawal of your consent are possible at any time with effect for the future.Legal basis for the processing of the personal data is Article 6 paragraph (1) sentence 1 lit. a and lit. b General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Transfer of personal data to third parties

Your personal data will only be known to those persons who are dealing with the processing of your inquiry, the processing of your order and the transmission of newsletters. However, a transfer of personal data to third parties can take place if you have expressly agreed to the transfer or if the transfer is permitted by data protection law. In some cases, our data processing is carried out by a data processor, who is bound by our instructions and obliged according to data protection regulations and who is not allowed to use the data for any other purpose.
