As a safeguard to protect your privacy, contact is established via a secure connection like the rest of the website. After the successful establishment of contact with you and final omission of the contact reason your data are deleted.

The legal basis is the legitimate interest which we evaluated in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If you are interested in receiving updates about our company or our products, you can subscribe to our newsletter. You will then receive an email in which you must click on a link to confirm receipt of the newsletter. We will then save your e-mail address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose you will find a corresponding link to unsubscribe in every email of our newsletter. The delivery of the newsletter is carried out by a professional service provider.
As a safeguard to protect your privacy, we ask for a so-called “Double-Opt-In” to ensure that the registered email address actually belongs to you. Furthermore, we have entered into a data processing agreement with the assigned service provider. You also have the possibility to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and thus delete your email address from the service provider’s database. The purpose of the data requested is to send the newsletter to your personal email address in order to fulfil your request for updates about our company or our products. The legal basis is your consent in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Our website partially uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are usually stored in a folder of your browser. Cookies contain information about the current or last visit to the website:

If cookies do not contain an exact expiration date, they are stored only temporarily and are automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser or restart your device. Cookies with an expiration date will still be stored even when you close your browser or restart your device. Such cookies will not be deleted until the specified date or if you delete them manually.
We use the following three types of cookies on our website:

functional and performance-related cookies (cookies that help us improve our website, e.g. to evaluate technical data of your visit and avoid error messages)

For the visual improvement of the fonts we use Google Fonts (https://fonts.google.com) from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), a font collection from Google. These fonts are transferred to the storage folder of your browser and activated when you visit this website or other websites. If this is not supported, the text on the web page will only be displayed in a default font. To make this possible, a request is sent to domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com, which for technical reasons contains your IP address. However, your data will not be merged with other data or traced back to your person.
The purpose of transmitting the data is the correct display of the fonts in the layout specified by us. The IP address is required to connect to Google’s servers to download the font library, if it is not already stored on the device. The legal basis is the legitimate interest which we evaluated in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
