Contact form

If you submit enquiries to us via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data to third parties. Thus, the data entered in the contact form will be processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message by e-mail. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass this data on to third parties. This data is processed based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if your enquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us.


We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job at our company (e.g. by e-mail). In the following we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure that the collection, processing and use of your data will be in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and all other legal requirements and that your data will be treated in strict confidence. If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Consent may be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons involved in processing your application.

CRM database

We use a CRM database to process the data of our customers. We process this data for the purpose of continuing the business and initiating orders. The basis of the processing is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We process the following data in particular:

  • First and last name
  • Business contact data (business telephone number and business e-mail)
  • Company affiliations
  • Company address
  • Job title


4      How Long are the Data Stored?

Browser data

Data transmitted by the browser when visiting the website will be automatically deleted after 14 days at the latest.

Contact form

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular, retention periods – remain unaffected.

Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.


If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer, withdraw your application, revoke your consent to data processing or request us to delete the data, the data you have submitted, including any remaining physical application documents, will be stored or retained for a maximum of 6 months after completion of the application process (retention period) in order to be able to trace the details of the application process in the event of discrepancies (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).


You may object to this storage if you have legitimate interests which outweigh our interests.


After the retention period has expired, the data will be deleted unless there is a legal obligation to retain the data or any other legal reason for further storage. If it is evident that the storage of your data will be necessary after the end of the storage period (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when it has become irrelevant. Other legal storage obligations remain unaffected.


CRM database


We review our data stock at regular intervals and delete the data of persons with whom we no longer have a business relationship.

5      Data Security

We maintain up-to-date technical and administrative precautions and measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from risks such as loss, destruction, manipulation or unauthorised access during data transmission as well as from third parties gaining knowledge of it. These are adapted to the current state of the art in each case.

Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a continuous improvement process and our data protection declarations are constantly being revised.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address line of the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
