Privacy Policy


Scope of application

This privacy statement provides information to users about the nature, scope and purpose of collection and use of personal data on this website (hereinafter “offer”) by the responsible provider


Böhlerstraße 1

P  +49 521 926 3237-0


on this website.

The legal basis of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, “BDSG”) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, “TMG”).


Access data/Server log files

The provider (or his web space provider) collects data upon each access to the offer (so-called server log files). Access data include:

Name of the accessed web page, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification on successful access, browser type plus version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. The provider reserves the right to inspect log data later, if there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful use due to specific indications.


Handling of personal data

Personal data are information that can identify a person, i.e. details which can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address, or phone number. Personal data also include data on preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites were viewed by someone.

Personal data will only be collected, used, and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the user consents to the data collection.


Establishing contact

When you contact the provider (for example, via the contact form or email), the user’s details are saved for the purpose of processing the request as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise.



We use the newsletter to provide you with information on our company and our offers.

If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address as well as information which can be used to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address or that the owner consents to receiving this newsletter. Further data are not collected. The data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be disclosed to third parties.

By registering for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves alone for proof in the event that a third party abuses an e-mail address and logs in without the knowledge of the person entitled to receive the newsletter.

You may revoke your consent for storing your data, your e-mail address, and your subscription to the newsletter at any time. The withdrawal can be made via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile or by sending a message to the above contact details.


Integration of services and content from third parties

It can happen that third party content is integrated from other websites on this website, such as videos from YouTube, Google Maps map data, RSS feeds or graphics. This always assumes that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) access the user’s IP address, because without the IP address, the content cannot be sent to the browser of each respective user. The IP address is thus required for presenting the content. We only strive to use such content, whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of content. However, we have no control over whether the third party stores the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. Insofar as is known to us, we inform users of this.


Getty images

This website may contain images from the stock image provider Getty Images. The images are identifiable on a frame with the note “Getty images”. The presentation of these images requires Getty Images to use the IP address of the user, so that the images can be delivered to the browser of the user. The IP address is thus required for presenting the content. According to current knowledge, the IP address is used only for this purpose. However, the provider has no control over whether Getty images stores the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. If this is known to the provider, the user will be informed of this and the images will be removed.

For more information, refer to the privacy policy of Getty images:
