The controller(s) within the meaning of the data protection/privacy laws are “we” – to contact us, see provider identification.
The executive board is responsible for data protection/privacy.

Storage of your contact data

We collect personal data on this homepage insofar as you enter this in the relevant “contact” data fields yourself for the purposes of establishing contact.

Purpose and legal basis for processing personal data

The purpose of capturing/collecting the data you enter is limited to contacting you, correspondence within the framework of your inquiry and, provided you agree, also for sending you information of interest from/about our company at a later date.
The data you enter will be stored on the basis of your consent, which you give us with the voluntary input of this data. You have the option of giving your consent only for the processing of your current inquiry or also additionally for receiving our information in the future.

Transfer of data and categories of recipients of personal data

The data you input for establishing contact will be used only by us and not passed on to any other recipients without your prior written consent.
There will be no transfers of the contact data you input to other countries, not even to non-EU member states.

Duration of storage of personal data

The data you enter will be stored by us only for the period that contact is maintained. The information will, within the framework of completing a business transaction or on the basis of your consent, be input into our data bank for business partner contact details.
For correspondence containing offers, orders and invoices the statutory retention periods of 10 years pursuant to the German Commercial Code (HGB) and tax law apply. Other emails or letters will, in accordance with the German Commercial Code, be kept as business letters for a period of 6 years.

Right to information

You have the right at all times to access/information on the personal data on you that we store. On request, you can obtain a copy of the personal data on your person that are being stored/ processed. If your inquiry does not refer to data already stored, but only to information relating to making contact via this internet homepage, then indicate this in your inquiry so that we can deal with it correctly.

Consent, right of revocation, right to object to the processing of personal data and your right to correction or deletion

You basically have the right to object to the processing of personal data if this is done on the basis of consent. If you have given us data for establishing contact and thus also consented to making contact, then you can demand their immediate deletion, provided that nothing has occurred to trigger an obligation to retain these.

Right to data portability

The right to data portability pursuant to the EU General Data Protection Regulation refers to the master data for the registration for a service as a B2C customer and is thus not relevant to the giving of a name and address for making contact nor for the customer relationship in B2B business.

The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Should you, despite all our efforts to provide good information and confidential treatment of all your personal data, wish to complain to the data protection supervisory authority, then you are perfectly entitled to do this and you can contact the data protection supervisory authority of the state of Hesse directly:

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer to enable an analysis of how you use the website. The information that the cookie generates about your use of this website is usually transmitted to, and stored on, a server operated by Google in the USA. The IP address anonymisation activated on this website means that Google will abbreviate your IP address in advance within member states of the European Union or other contracting states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and abbreviated there. Google will, on behalf of the operator of this website, use this information to analyse your use of the website, compile reports about website activities and provide the website operator with other services related to the use of the website and the internet. The IP address conveyed by your browser when Google Analytics is activated will not be linked to/merged with any other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by using the appropriate settings in your browser. We would like to point out, however, that in this case you might not be able to make full use of all the features/functions of this website. You can, furthermore, prevent the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) from being conveyed to, and being processed by, Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.

Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)

In order to display our content on various browsers and in a graphically attractive manner, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google web fonts ( on this website. Google web fonts are transferred to your browser cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google web fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.

The calling up of script libraries or font libraries automatically establishes connection with the library operator. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and if necessary for what purposes –operators of such libraries collect data.

The data protection policy of the library operator Google can be found here:

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information visually. When you visit Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about your use of the map functions. You can find more information about Google's data processing in Google's privacy policy.

Embedded YouTube videos

We have integrated YouTube videos into some of our websites. The operator of the relevant plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a webpage, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers, which informs YouTube which sites you are viewing. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can identify you personally with your surfing behaviour. This can be prevented by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

Once a YouTube video is started, the provider installs cookies that collect information on user behaviour.
If you have deactivated the storing of cookies for the Google ad programme, then you will not need to worry about such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. YouTube does, however, store non-personal user information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, then you have to block the storing of cookies in your browser.

You will find further information on data protection on YouTube under the provider’s privacy policy under:

The new privacy policy will then apply to your next visit to our website.
