You can exercise the following rights at any time by contacting our Data Protection Officer using the contact details provided below:

  • The right to access: Information about the data we have stored about you and how it is processed (Art. 15 GDPR),
  • The right to rectification: Correction of incorrect personal data (Art. 16 GDPR),
  • The right to erasure: Erasure of your personal data (Art. 17 GDPR),

If you have given us consent, you can revoke it at any time with future effect.

You may file a complaint with a supervisory authority, e.g. the competent supervisory authority in the federal state of your residence or the authority responsible for us as the responsible body, at any time.

A list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) including their address can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.


The fonts used on our website are hosted locally, i.e. on our web server - not on third-party servers. This means that there is no connection to third-party servers and thus no data transfer or storage.

Collection of general information when visiting our website

Nature and purpose of the processing:

When you access our website, i.e., when you do not register or otherwise submit information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, your IP address and the like.

In particular, it is processed for the following purposes:

  • To ensure that the website connection is established without any problems,
  • To ensure seamless use of our website,
  • To evaluate system security and stability, and
  • To optimize our website.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated anonymously by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Legal basis and legitimate interest:

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.


Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as contractors for the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period:

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data collected to enable the website, this typically occurs once the session has ended.

In the case of log file data, erasure occurs after 14 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of users are anonymized so that identification of the client is no longer possible.

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services may be limited or unavailable. For this reason, objection is not possible.

Cookies & web analysis

Currently, we do not use cookies and do not perform web analytics.

Links to third-party services

On our website, we link to services provided by third parties. You can identify these links by the fact that they contain the name of the third-party provider. When you use these links, data may be transmitted to the providers of these services. Specifically, we link to:

Xing – Data protection policy: https://privacy.xing.com/en/privacy-policy
LinkedIn – Data protection policy: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

Contact form

Nature and purpose of processing:

The data you provide will be stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. The provision of a valid e-mail address and your name is necessary for the completion of the request and the subsequent response. The provision of further data is optional.

Legal basis:

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based on a legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

In providing you with a contact form, we are providing a channel for easy communication. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions.

If you contact us to request a quote, the data entered in the contact form will be processed to carry out pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).


Recipients of the data are, if applicable, order processors.

Storage period:

Data will be deleted no later than 6 months after processing the request. If a contractual relationship arises, we are subject to the statutory retention periods according to the German Commercial Code (HGB) and will delete your data after these periods have expired.

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, we can only process your request if you provide us with your name, e-mail address and the reason for the request.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Information about your right to object according to Art. 21 GDPR

Right to object on a case-by-case basis

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
