Object of protection:
The object of the protection is personal data. Personal data is all the information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the “data subject”). This mainly includes information that makes it possible to draw conclusions about your identity (information such as your name, postal address, email address and telephone number).
In order to establish a connection to our website, your browser transfers certain data to the web server of our website. This is a technical necessity allowing the information you call up to be made available from the website. To make this possible, your IP address, the date and time of your enquiry and the type of your operating system will be stored and used for a maximum of 180 days. We reserve the right to store this data for a limited time in order to protect our legitimate interests and – in the event of unauthorised access or attempts to cause us deliberate damage by such means – to arrange for personal data to be derived (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). The data will be retained or passed on by us only for this and for no other purpose without our having to inform you in advance or ask for your permission
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.
Promotional offers from us
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us or if you provided us with your details when you entered a competition, registered for a promotion, completed a questionnaire or requested a newsletter and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third-party company for marketing purposes.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us at any time on email@example.com.
Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, warranty registration, product/service experience or other transactions.
Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

Types of cookies:
To explain the most common types of cookies to you in more detail, please see the descriptions below:
- Session cookies:
Session cookies enable users and the changes make within a website to be recognised when they visit again. They enable the website to track their movements over individual webpages so that information that has already been entered/stored does not have to be entered/stored again. One example of this is the shopping cart in an online shop. The session cookie stores the selected products in the shopping cart so that it contains the right items when you pay at the checkout. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or become invalid as soon as the session automatically expires.
- Permanent or protocol cookies:
A permanent or “protocol” cookie stores the information and settings of the users for the period specified in the expiry date. This results in faster and more convenient access, as you do not have to make language settings again or re-enter login data, for example. The cookie is automatically deleted at the end of the storage period.
- Third-party cookies:
Third-party cookies normally have no influence on the use of the website since they do not originate with the operator of the website. For example, they serve the purpose of collecting information for advertising, custom content and web statistics and of passing it on to the respective third-party provider.
- Tracking cookies:
Our website uses the functions of various web analysis services provided by other companies such as Google Inc. Below, we explain in more detail which services are involved and which data is analysed.
Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function:
If you want to decide for yourself what information Google may collect about the websites you visit, you can download a deactivation add-on for your Internet browser. However, this add-on will not prevent data from being sent to us or to the other web analysis services we use. For more information about the use and installation of the add-on, please see: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
If you are using a mobile device (such as a smartphone) to access our website, or if you generally wish to object to the use of Google Analytics on this website, please click on https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en to prevent the analysis data from being sent to Google Analytics. The above link is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on described above, as it activates an “opt-out” cookie that is only valid for this browser and this domain. When cookies are deleted in this browser, this cookie will also be lost and you will have to click on the link again.
