Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your website visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this privacy policy.



When you visit our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which the access is made (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, as well as the name of your access provider.

We process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection to the website,
  • To ensure a comfortable use of our website,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability and
  • for further administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para.1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest arises from the purposes for data collection listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected to draw conclusions about your person.



If you contact us electronically (e.g. by e-mail), your personal data transmitted to us will be collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your enquiry, for contacting you and for the associated technical administration.

The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your enquiry in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted after final processing of your enquiry. This is the case if it can be concluded from the circumstances that the facts of the case  have been conclusively clarified and insofar that no statuary retention obligations conflict with this. After expiry of the retention period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract and/or if we no longer have a legitimate interest in its continued storage.

The transmission of your data using the contact form provided on the website is encrypted. Please note that you should only send encrypted emails to us in order to protect the confidentiality of your enquiry from third parties.

Reporting portal for the Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG)

We operate a reporting portal in accordance with the Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG). We use a service provided by bbg bitbase group GmbH, Am Heilbrunnen 47, 72766 Reutlingen. We treat information in accordance with § 8 HinSchG confidentially.

The purpose of the Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) reporting portal is to review and document reports for internal investigation and, if necessary, to pass them on to authorised bodies in order to remedy unlawful abuses at the company in accordance with Section 2 HinSchG.

Whistleblowers have the option of registering on our website to use the whistleblower portal. To register, log in and make contact, we process data that is automatically transmitted by the internet browser and personal data that you can provide as a whistleblower: Access data, title (if provided), first name and surname (if provided), contact details (email address, telephone number or postal address, if provided), personal data in the report, in particular behavioural violations with corresponding facts.

You have the option of registering anonymously. You will receive a unique identification code that gives you access to a closed data protection room. Here you have the opportunity to submit your comment.

No data will be passed on to third parties outside your company without your consent, unless this is necessary due to legal provisions or orders such as § 9 HinSchG. The data may then be passed on to investigating authorities or courts.

The legal basis for data processing under the HinSchG is the legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a c) DSGVO in conjunction with. § 12 HinSchG. If you provide particularly sensitive data, such as data relating to your health, sexuality, origin or criminal offences, Art. 9 and 10 DSGVO must also be observed.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. According to Section 11 HinSchG, this is usually the case after three years. Other storage obligations due to contractual relationships and processing to fulfil contractual or legal obligations, such as six or ten-year retention obligations under commercial and tax law, remain unaffected.

For further information, in particular on your rights as a data subject, please refer to the general data protection declaration of bbg bitbase group GmbH: https://www.bitbasegroup.com/datenschutzerklaerung.



Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent you have already given at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.



This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.






If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

This website uses the open source web analysis service Matomo.

With the help of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyse data about the use of our website by website visitors. This allows us to find out, among other things, when which pages were accessed and from which region. We also record various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser and operating system used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).

The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

IP anonymisation
We use IP anonymisation for the analysis with Matomo. This means that your IP address is shortened before it is analysed so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you.

Cookie-less analysis
We have configured Matomo so that it does not store any cookies in your browser.

We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.

Deactivate Matomo
If you do not agree with the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate the storage and use here. In this case, an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser that prevents Matomo from storing usage data. If you delete your cookies, the Matomo opt-out cookie will also be deleted. The opt-out must be reactivated when you visit this website again.
