Data protection
Thank you very much for your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is a top priority for us. Please find more detailed information about how we handle your data below.

Collection, processing and use of personal data
You can visit our website without stating any private details. We only save access data that is not individual-related like the name of your internet service provider, the site you are visiting us from or the name of the required data file. These kinds of data will only be evaluated to improve our range of products and provide no information about your private details.

Personal data will only be collected when you convey them voluntarily when ordering items from us, downloading material which requires registration, or registering to receive our newsletter. The data that you have provided without separate consent is solely used for the purpose of fulfilling and processing your order. Once the order has been completely processed and the purchase price fully paid, your data will be blocked against further use and deleted subject to expiry of the relevant fiscal and commercial regulations, unless you have expressly agreed to the further use of your data. When registering for the newsletter, your e-mail address will, with your consent, be used for in-house advertising purposes. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Use of cookies
We use cookies on different pages in order to make our website more attractive to visitors and to enable the use of certain functions. Cookies are small text files that are saved on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are removed from your hard drive once the browsing session has been ended (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer during your next visit (so-called permanent cookies). These cookies allow us to greet you by name, and eliminate the need to re-enter your password or form-filling again on each visit. Our partner companies are not allowed to collect, process or use personal data by means of cookies via our web site.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to and stored on a server at Google in the USA.
Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website and compile reports on the website activity for the website operators as well as facilitating the provision of additional services linked to website and Internet use. Where applicable, Google will also pass this information on to third parties, where required by law or where third parties are commissioned by Google to process this data. Google will never link your IP address with other data held by Google. While you can prevent cookies from being installed by configuring the relevant setting of your browser software, we must inform you that if you do so, not all the functions of this website may be fully usable. In using this website, you implicitly acknowledge agreement to have the data you provide processed by Google in the manner described above and for the previously specified purpose. Given the debate surrounding the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to reaffirm that this website uses Google Analytics with the suffix “_anonymizeIp()”, which means that IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form, to avoid any risk of direct personal identification.
You may opt out of the data collection and storage via Google Analytics at any time with future effect for all websites by installing a browser plugin. If this browser plugin does not meet the specified requirements, you can use the GA exclude script to opt out of the data collection.

Attract new customers using addvalue's technology
For statistical analysis of visitor requests addvalue GmbH collects, processes and stores data that was collected with its MINQ app for website visitor identification. The information collected is used to determine openly available address data of commercial entities only. No address data will be returned for private people. For this purpose, so-called cookies are used. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer to enable an analysis of your website usage.

Right to information
The federal data protection law guarantees you information free of charge about your stored personal data and, if you so wish, your right to correct, block or delete this data.

If you opt for subscribing to the newsletter we provide, all we require from you is a valid e-mail address. After registering, our system will send you an e-mail including an activation link, via which you confirm the registration (double opt-in method). This is how we can ensure that you are actually the owner of the specified e-mail address and confirm your agreement to receive the newsletter. You can stop transmission of the newsletter at any time by accessing the relevant link in the newsletter itself or by informing us directly. Our contact details are included on the information page. Your e-mail address will then be deleted.
