This is simply a translation of the original data protection declaration in German. German law applies at all time.


1. Who is affected by the General Data Protection Regulation?
It is generally possible to use our website without providing personal data. If personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, it is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible. The utilization of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by a third party for the consignment of advertisements and information, which was not specifically requested, is herewith explicitly objected to. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.
If we process personal data, this means that we collect, store, use, transmit or delete it. This data protection declaration deals with personal data of interested parties and visitors to our website and/or customers.

2. Your personal data
2.1 What personal data do we collect?

We collect your personal data when you contact us, e.g. as an interested party or customer. In particular, if you create a customer account on our website, add products to your shopping cart, subscribe to our newsletter or request offers by telephone or otherwise contact us.
We also process personal data from publicly accessible sources in the event that this is necessary for one of our services. Personal data is also transmitted to us by other third parties (e.g. credit agencies). This concerns the following personal data:

Personal identification information: This includes information and details such as your name, address or other postal address, telephone number or e-mail address.
Data on your online behaviour and preferences: e.g. IP addresses, unique identifiers of mobile devices, data on your visits to our website (payment methods, shopping carts, purchase transactions).

2.2 Are you obliged to transmit your personal data to us?
As part of our business relationship, we require the following personal data from you:
- Data required for the establishment and performance of business relationships.
- Data necessary for the fulfilment of the associated obligations.
- Data which we are legally obliged to collect.

Without this personal data, we are generally not in a position to enter into or execute a contract with you.


3 What do we process your data for and on what legal basis does this take place?

3.1 Performance of contract
In order to fulfil our contracts to your complete satisfaction, we must process your data. This also applies to pre-contractual information which you send us, e.g. as part of the checkout when selecting the method of payment.

3.1.1 Order processing
In order to process the product delivery, we require contact information such as telephone number or e-mail address as well as billing address and/or your delivery address.

3.1.2 Forms for air volume calculation, financing requests, complaints or general contact
The data collected is visible in the form and limited to the data required for processing the services. You can also contact us by telephone at +49 209 97768140 or by e-mail at [email protected] .

3.2 Use of data with your consent
If you have given us permission to process personal data for certain purposes, the processing of this data is lawful. However, you can revoke your consent at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that you gave us before the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) became law, i.e. before 25 May 2018. The revocation of the consent does not affect the legality of the data processed until the revocation.

3.2.1 Creation of a customer account or telephone contact

If you create a user account on our website or contact us by telephone, we will store your personal data such as name, address and contact information after your consent.

3.2.2 Newsletter
You can register for our newsletter on our website. In this newsletter we inform you regularly about us and our offers.
To receive the newsletter we need a valid e-mail address. This data will only be used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
For the dispatch of the newsletter we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will only send you our newsletter after you have expressly confirmed to us that you wish to make use of the newsletter service. We will then send you an e-mail and ask you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter by clicking on the link contained therein. You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use to send the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletter itself, on or by e-mail to the following e-mail address: [email protected]

3.2.3 Shop reviews
In order to offer our customers the possibility to evaluate, we integrated the evaluation software of the independent evaluation service provider Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Straße 15c, 50823 Köln, Germany, into our website.

If you have agreed to our privacy policy within the ordering process, Trusted Shops will send you an e-mail with a link to a shop evaluation page after receiving the ordered goods. Since we want to secure the quality of the incoming evaluations, only customers who have actually purchased a product and have gained experience with it are allowed to give us an evaluation. Therefore it is necessary to pass on individual order data (name, e-mail address, order number and article number) after your purchase with your consent to the independent evaluation service provider Trusted Shops. Trusted Shops receives your data only for the purpose of obtaining shop evaluations for our online shop.

You can revoke your consent regarding the receipt of the e-mails and the passing on of order data in your customer account at any time. Alternatively, you can revoke your consent by sending an e-mail to [email protected] .


3.3 Processing on the basis of legitimate interests
3.3.1 Securing the operation of our website

For technical reasons, your browser automatically sends data to our web server during data transmission (e.g. when calling up a page from our website). This includes date and time of access, URL of the referring website, which file was accessed, amount of data sent, browser type and version, operating system and your IP address. These data - separated from other data that you enter when using our website - are stored exclusively for IT security purposes and deleted after one week at the latest. These data are not assigned to a specific person.

This procedure protects both you and us from illegal activities. If this information is passed on to third parties, we will also ensure that it is deleted in due time in accordance with the applicable General Data Protection Regulation.

3.3.2 Web analysis and advertising
In order to optimise our product range, product presentation and user guidance in our online shop and to adapt them to your needs, we and third-party service providers commissioned by us process the following data for the purpose described in each case. Information for this purpose is often stored in so-called cookies:
What are cookies? These are small files that your browser stores on your device in a directory provided for this purpose.

You can call up Microsoft's data protection conditions for handling collected data under the following link: Bing Ads can be deactivated at any time. Please follow the instructions: Google Adwords
On our website we use the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and in this context conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google".
When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through AdWords customer websites.
The information collected with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users. Processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR for the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating the remarketing cookie via this link. You may also contact the Digital Advertising Alliance to learn more about the use of cookies and to configure your preferences. Google Dynamic Remarketing

On our website we use the dynamic remarketing function of "Google AdWords", a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This technology enables us to automatically generate targeted advertisements after you visited our website. The ads are based on the products and services you clicked on last time you visited our website.

Cookies are also used to create interest-based advertisements. Google normally stores information such as your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request. This information is used only to identify the web browser on a particular computer. They cannot be used to identify a person. If you do not want to receive user-based advertising from Google, you can deactivate advertisements by using Google's ad preferences.

IP anonymization:

A prerequisite for the legally compliant use of "Google Analytics" is the anonymization of the IP addresses of the users by including the function "anonymous IP". By using the code extension, the last 8 bits of the IP addresses are deleted and thus made anonymous. Thus only a rough localization of the IP address is possible.


4. Who receives your data?
