If you assert a legitimate request for erasure or withdraw consent for data processing, your data will be erased unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data is erased once these reasons cease to apply.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing procedures are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent that you have given at any time. The legality of the data processing that took place prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

In the case of breaches against the GDPR, the data subject has a right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority in the member state of their usual residence, workplace or the place of the suspected breach. The right of complaint exists regardless of any other legal remedies that may be available through the courts or administrative procedures.
Right of data portability
You have the right to receive data, or have it received by a third party, that we have processed automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, in a current, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this shall take place only insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to safeguard the transfer of sensitive content, such as orders or inquiries, that you send to us as the site operator. An encrypted connection can be recognized from the fact that the address line of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and a lock symbol appears in your browser toolbar.
When the SSL or TLS encryption is active, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, erasure, and rectification
Within the framework of legal regulations, you have at any time the right to receive information, free of charge, about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectification or erasure of this data.

- When you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we have stored about you, we generally need time to check this. During this check, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
- If the processing of your personal data took place / is taking place unlawfully, you may request the restriction of the data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- When you file an objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, your and our interests must be weighed up. Until it has been established which interests take precedence, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
When you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons arising from an important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or to display videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or to display advertising.
Cookies that are necessary to fulfill the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions you have requested (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e.g. cookies that measure web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) of the GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in saving cookies in order to offer an optimized provision of its services free of technical faults. If consent was requested to store cookies, the relevant cookies are stored exclusively on the basis of this consent (Article 6 (1) a) GDPR); Consent may be revoked at any time.

If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require you to provide an email address as well as information allowing us to verify that you are the owner of the given email address, and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data solely for sending the requested information and we do not pass it on to third parties.
The processing of the data entered via the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of your data, your email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations previously carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide in order to receive the newsletter will be stored by us or by the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter, and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list once you unsubscribe from the newsletter, or once it no longer serves any purpose. We reserve the right to delete or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion within the scope of our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.
Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
After its removal from the newsletter distribution list, your email address will be stored by us or by the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if required, to prevent future mailings. Data from the blacklist is only used for this purpose and is not merged with any other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR). Storage on the blacklist is not limited in time. You may object to the said storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
