Privacy Policy

We are pleased with your visit to our website and your interest in our company. The protection of your personal data is a very important matter for us. Personal data is specific information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as the real name, address, telephone number and date of birth.


Because such data enjoys special protection, we collect it only to the extent that is technically necessary. Consistent with our obligation, we will explain to you in the following what information we collect during your visit to our web site and how it is used.

Our privacy practice complies with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz – TMG). We will collect, process and store your personal data exclusively for processing inquiries and, if applicable, for orders/contracts. Your data may also be used for other purposes—for example, for processing inquiries through our contact form—only if you have given your consent for the specific purposes separately in advance.

Pseudonymized use of the website
You can, in principle, visit our web pages without disclosing personal data to us. Pseudonymized usage data is not conflated with the data of the holder of the pseudonym. No pseudonym usage profiles are compiled.

When this website or individual files of the website are accessed, we collect, process and store the following data: IP address, website from which the file was accessed, the name of the file, date and time of the access, amount of data transferred and report on the success of the access (so-called weblog). We use this access data exclusively in non-personalized form for the continuous improvement of our website and for statistical purposes.

Special functions of the website
Our site offers you various functions which, when they are used, enable us to collect, process and store personal data. We clarify below what happens with this data:

We will use the data entered on our contact form only to process inquiries received through the contact form. The collected data is deleted within six months after the processing of the inquiry.

Distributor login
With a user name (e-mail address of your choice) and a password from us which is valid only for the respective e-mail address, selected users among our trading partners can reach our internal area where additional data can be accessed and also downloaded (e.g. price lists, technical exploded-view drawings, product pictures, etc.).

Data sharing
We only share the data (such as name and address) that is needed for us to fulfill our contractual obligation and for third parties to guarantee trouble-free execution, particularly for the processing of a closed contract, or when we are required to store or share it for other legal reasons.
When you provide personal data to us, this data is only used for the indicated purpose you consented to before entering the data. We will store your personal data only for as long as this is necessary for the intended purpose of the data collection or is prescribed by law.
There is no disclosure to third parties except for the stated purposes.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google" herein). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies"—text files that are stored on your computer and that make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website is normally transferred to a server of Google in the U.S. and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address in advance within Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only on rare occasions will the full IP address be transmitted to a server of Google in the U.S. and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of analyzing your use of the website, compiling reports on the website activities and performing further services for the website operator which are associated with website and Internet usage. Google assures that the IP address that is transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not conflated with other data of Google.

You can prevent cookies from being stored through a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we caution that you may be unable to use all functions of this website in such case.

In addition, you can prevent Google from acquiring and processing data generated by the cookie and which is related to your use of the website (including your IP address). For this purpose, download and install the browser add-on which is available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

You can find further information at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data privacy).

We indicate to you that Google Analytics was extended on this website by the code gat._anonymizeIp(); to ensure anonymized logging of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

External content / processing of data outside the EU
On our website we use active Java script content from external providers. Your accessing our website may send personal information about your visit to our website to these external providers. You can prevent this by installing a Java script blocker, such as the "NoScript" (www.noscript.net) browser plugin, or by deactivating Java script in your browser. This may limit the functionality of web sites you visit.

Data security and data privacy, communication by e-mail
All technical and organizational means are taken to store your personal data in a way that it is not accessible to third parties. We cannot guarantee complete data security for communication made by e-mail and therefore recommend that you send by mail information for which there is a great need for confidentiality.
