We take privacy seriously
Protecting your privacy during the processing of personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically save the IP address of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages on our website that you visit, and the date and duration of your visit. This information is necessary for the technical functionality of the webpages and the secure operation of the server. A personalised evaluation of this data is not carried out.
If you send us information via the contact form, this data will be stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will be used by us exclusively to process your request. Your data will be handled in a strictly confidential manner. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

Personal data are data about yourself. This includes your name, your address and your Email address. You are not obligated to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as further information to be able to offer you the service you require.
The same applies if we supply you with informative material on request or if we answer your enquiries. We will always notify you in such cases. Otherwise, we only save data that you have automatically or voluntarily submitted to us.
When you use our services, we normally only collect data that are necessary to be able to offer you our services. We may ask you for further information on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal information, we do so in order to provide you with our services or to pursue our commercial interests.
Automatically saved data
Server log files
Website providers automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
- Data and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- The web browser and operating system used
- Complete IP address of the computer making the request
- Amount of data transmitted
This data is not combined with other data sources. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. This data is stored by us for a brief period for security reasons, especially with regard to the prevention of attempts to attack our web server. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions regarding individuals based on this data. The data is anonymised at the domain level after seven days by truncating the IP address so it will no longer be possible to assign the data to individual users. Additionally, the anonymised data is processed for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other datasets or passed on to third parties, even in extracts. The number of page views is displayed only within the framework of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report.

Google Analytics with anonymisation functionality Part
On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, which are text files that are saved on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the website.
The information generated by these cookies, such as time, location and frequency of your visits to the website, including IP address, are transmitted to Google in the United States and saved there.
On our website, we use Google Analytics with the “_gat._anonymizeIp” tag. Through this, your IP address will already be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other member states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your usage of our website, compiling reports on website activities for us, and carrying out further services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also pass this information on to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
If you visit our website from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you will need to click this link instead to prevent Google Analytics from tracking you within this site in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser Add-On. By clicking the link, an opt-out cookie is set in your browser and is valid only for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.
If you’ve agreed that Google may link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and use information from your Google Account to personalise ads, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create target audience lists for remarketing purposes across multiple devices. Google Analytics will first collect your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google account (i.e. personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily associate your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimise our target audiences.
If you do not agree, you can turn it off via the corresponding settings in the “My Account” section of your Google Account.
By using our website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google and the previously mentioned manner of data processing and the stated purpose. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the corresponding settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our webpages. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookies, as well as the data related to your use of the webpages, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link under the item DoubleClick deactivation extension. Alternatively, you can disable Doubleclick cookies with this opt-out.

Google Web Fonts
Google Web Fonts are used to improve the visual presentation of various items of information on our website. (https://fonts.google.com/). The web fonts are transferred to the browser’s cache when the site is accessed so that they can be used for the display. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, the text will be displayed in the default font. When the site is accessed, no cookies are stored for the website visitor. Data transmitted in connection with the site access is sent to resource-specific domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. It will not be associated with data that may be collected or used in connection with the parallel use of authenticated Google services such as Gmail. You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded by the Google servers (e.g. by installing add-ons like NoScript or Ghostery for Firefox). If your browser does not support Google Fonts or if you block access to the Google servers, the text will be displayed in the default font of the system.
We use the provider Vimeo for the integration of videos, among others things. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.
On some of our webpages, we use plugins of the provider Vimeo. If you access the webpages of our website with such a plugin – for example, our media library – a connection to the Vimeo servers will be established, and the plugin will be displayed. By doing so, the Vimeo server will be informed which of our webpages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo will assign this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, e.g., clicking the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
Further information on data processing and privacy at Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.

Facebook Custom Audiences Pixels
Sign in with Facebook
We use elements of the provider Facebook.com on our site. Facebook is a service of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
We use the function “Facebook Connect” offered by Facebook. If you want to use this function, you’ll first be re-directed to Facebook. There, you’ll be asked to log in with your user name and password. Of course, we do not take note of your login data. If you’re already logged into Facebook, this step will be skipped. Facebook will then tell you which data will be transmitted to us (public profile, friends list, email address and current place of residence). Confirm this by pressing the “OK” button. We’ll use the data transmitted to create your customer account, but we won’t of course store your list of friends. There will be no additional permanent link between your customer account and your account on Facebook.
Facebook "Lead Ads"
We use the “Lead Ads” function provided by Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) to voluntarily process the data of interested parties – so-called leads – via a contact form displayed there. The legal basis for this is the user’s consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) Letter a GDPR and our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) Letter f GDPR in the use of this data for proprietary purposes and for direct advertising exclusively.
The use of data is linked to the purposes pursued with the respective Lead Ad campaign. These purposes are specifically presented in the Lead Ad before obtaining consent and before we receive the data provided. You can object to its processing at any time.
If you wish to object to the above-mentioned connection with Facebook, you can do so by clicking on this link.
Analysis by WiredMinds
Our website uses counting pixel technology provided by WiredMinds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) to analyze visitor behavior. In connection with this, the IP address of the visitor is processed. The processing occurs only for the purpose of collecting company based information such as company name, for example. IP addresses of natural persons are excluded from any further processing by means of a whitelist. An IP address is not stored in LeadLab under any circumstances.
While processing data, it is our outmost interest to protect the rights of natural persons. Our interest in processing data is based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. At no time is it possible to draw conclusions from the collected data on an identifiable person.
WiredMinds GmbH uses this information to create anonymized usage profiles of the visit behavior on our website. Data obtained during this process is not used to personally identify visitors of our website.
We set up a password-protected direct-access to the user data (customer account) stored by us for each customer who registers accordingly. Here you can view data about your completed, open and recently shipped orders and manage your address information, bank details and the newsletter. You undertake to treat the personal access-data confidentially and not to make them accessible to unauthorised third parties. We cannot assume any liability for misused passwords, unless we are responsible for the misuse.
We would like to make your visit to our website as pleasant as possible with the function “Stay logged in”. This function allows you to use our services without having to log in again each time. For security reasons, however, you will be asked to enter your password again if, for example, you need to change your personal data or you wish to place an order. We recommend that you do not use this feature if the computer is used by multiple users. We would like to point out that the “Stay logged in" function is not available if you use a setting that automatically deletes stored cookies after each session.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending our newsletter. The newsletter service is only activated after you have expressly confirmed this to us. If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you, which allows us to check that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive our newsletter. We will then send you a notification e-mail and ask you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter by clicking on a link contained in that email.
When you subscribe to our newsletter, we will store your IP address and the date of registration. Further data will not be collected (or only on a voluntary basis). This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third-party misuses your e-mail address to register you without your knowledge or your authorisation to receive the newsletter.
The data entered in the newsletter registration form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 [1a] GDPR).
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your data, e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time with effect for the future, for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of any and all data processing operations previously carried out shall not be affected by your revocation.
The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and then deleted after you cancel the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the Member’s Area) shall remain unaffected.
We have taken technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the applicable privacy laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal information, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security precautions are subject to a continuous improvement process and our privacy policies are constantly being revised. Please make sure that you have the latest version.
You have the right at any time to request information, correction, deletion or restriction of the processing of your stored data; a right to object to the processing; as well as the right to data portability and to lodge a complaint in accordance with the requirements of privacy law.
Right of access:
You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right to rectification:
If we process your data that is incomplete or inaccurate, you may request that we correct or supplement it at any time.
Right to erasure:
You can demand that we delete your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your justifiable protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent an immediate erasure, e.g., in the case of legally stipulated retention obligations.
Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as there is no contractual or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.
Right to restrict processing:
You can ask us to restrict the processing of your data if
- you dispute the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data,
- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you decline to delete it and instead demand a restriction on the use of the data,
- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to file or defend legal claims, or
- you have objected to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability:
You may request that we provide you with the information you have provided to us in a structured, standard and computer-readable format and that you may provide that information to another representative without interference from us, provided that we process this data on the basis of an agreement given and revocable by you or for the fulfilment of a contract between us, and that such processing is carried out using automated procedures. If technically feasible, you may request us to transfer your data directly to another representative.
Right to object:
If we process your data for legitimate reasons, you may object to such processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling and protection-worthy grounds for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
Right to appeal:
If you are of the opinion that we have violated German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions you may have. Of course, you also have the right to contact the competent regulatory authority for you, the respective regional office for data protection supervision.
If you wish to exercise any of the aforementioned rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of any doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
