The scope and type of collection and use of your data differ depending on whether you visit our website only to retrieve information or to use services offered by us:


I.   Internet Use

For merely informational use of our website, it is generally not necessary for you to provide personal data.


Rather, in this case, we collect and use only those of your data that your internet browser automatically transmits to us, such as:

·         Date and time of retrieval of one of our web pages

·         Your browser type

·         the browser settings

·         the operating system used

·         the last page you visited

·         the amount of data transferred and the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.) as well as

·         Your IP address.


We collect and use this data during an informational visit exclusively in a non-personal form. This is done to enable the use of the web pages you have accessed, for statistical purposes and to improve our internet offer. The IP address is stored only for the duration of your visit, a personal evaluation does not take place. A combination of this data with other data sources is not carried out, and the data is deleted after a statistical evaluation. This is permissible in view of the Telemedia Act according to the decision of the European Court of Justice of 19.10.2016 (Ref.: C 582/14).


II.  Use of Offers or Data Usage for Task Fulfillment

In order to use services offered by us, it may be necessary that you provide additional data. These are the data that are required for the respective processing. Further details can be provided voluntarily; they are marked as optional by us.

Your data may be passed on to service providers supporting us, which we have carefully selected and obliged to comply with data protection laws. This can particularly include technical service providers or shipping service providers (Lettershop etc.).


Otherwise, your data will only be passed on to other third parties if this is legally permitted or if we have received your explicit consent for it.

For this, it is technically necessary that we combine your incurred and provided data in usage profiles and evaluate these for the aforementioned purposes. This is done only internally and only for the aforementioned purposes.
