Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user's computer system. If a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a distinctive character string that enables unique identification of the browser when the website is accessed again.


We use cookies on our website to enable the shop and inquiry form to function properly. The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions, so it is not possible to assign the data to a user. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

(8) Web analysis by Google Analytics

For our website we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyse user's activities across devices.


Google Analytics uses cookies (see above) that are stored on your computer and that analyse your use of the website. Cookie-generated information about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. The IP address provided by your browser in the framework of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.


On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, for compiling reports on website activity, and for providing us other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Our legitimate interest in data processing lies in the provision of these services. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Once the retention period for a piece of data has expired, it will be automatically deleted in a process that is run once a month.
