Use of e-mail address for direct advertising purposes
We intend to use electronic postal addresses (e-mail-address) obtained during purchase order processes or on rendering services pursuant to the provisions set forth in § 7 subparagraph 3 German Unfair Competition Act (UWG, please see excerpt of the text below) for direct advertising purposes with respect to our own similar goods or services. You may object to the use at any time in case you do not consent to this. Please find contact details for such objection in our Legal Notice.

Purchasing and security
We attach particular importance to the protection of our customer data. This is why we exclusively use tested encryption technologies in communicating. The SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) network protocol guarantees safe data traffic between and our customers. SSL was specifically developed for safe data transfer on the internet. The URL will change in case SSL encryption is being used during data traffic. In this case of encrypted data transfer it will read “https” instead of “http”.

Use of Google Analytics
This Website uses Google Analyt
ics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so called "Cookies", small text files stored on your computer which render possible an analysis of the way you use the website. The information obtained through cookies on the way you use this website will normally be transferred to a Google server in the USA where they then will be stored. In case IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will shorten IP addresses within EU Member States or in other member states of the European Economic Area before transferring them. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services for the website operator relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will not collate the IP address obtained from your browser for Google Analytics purposes with any other data held by Google. You may prevent cookies from being stored by changing the settings of your browser's software accordingly; we would like to point out, however, that in this case some features on our website might not be used to their full extent. In view of the debate regarding the use of analytics tools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the "_anonymizeIp()" function, which ensures that IP addresses are processed in truncated form only and prevents them from being traced to a specific user. You may prevent the data generated by the cookie from being collected on the way you use this website (including your IP-address) by Google as well as these data being processed by Google by downloading a plug-in provided at and installing the same.

On various pages of our website we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer and stored by your browser. They serve to render the service we provide more user-friendly, more effective and more safe. You may at any time prevent the installation of cookies by changing the settings of your browser's software accordingly. We must point out, however, that in this case some features on our website" cannot be used to their full extent.

Extract from the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG)
Section 7 - Unconscionable pestering

(1) A commercial practice unconscionably pestering a market participant shall be illegal. This shall apply to advertising particularly in cases where it is apparent that the solicited market participant does not want this advertising.

(2) Unconscionable pestering shall always be assumed in the case of

  1. advertising using a medium of commercial communication not listed under numbers 2 and 3 which is suited to distance marketing and through which a consumer is persistently solicited although it appears that he does not want this;
  2. advertising by means of a telephone call, made to a consumer without his prior express consent, or made to another market participant without at least the latter's presumed consent,
  3. advertising using an automated calling machine, a fax machine or electronic mail without the addressee's prior express consent, or
  4. advertising using a communication where the identity of the sender, on whose behalf the communication is transmitted, is concealed or kept secret, or where there is no valid address to which the recipient can send an instruction to terminate transmission of communications of this kind, without costs arising by virtue thereof, other than transmission costs pursuant to the basic rates.
(3) Notwithstanding  subsection (2), number 3, unconscionable pestering shall not be assumed to exist in the case of advertising using electronic mail if

  1. the entrepreneur has obtained from the customer the latter’s electronic mail address in connection with the sale of goods or services,
  2. the entrepreneur uses the address for direct advertising of his own similar goods or services,
  3. the customer has not objected to this use; and
  4. the customer has been clearly and unequivocally advised, when the address is recorded and each time it is used, that he can object to such use at any time, without costs arising by virtue thereof, other than transmission costs pursuant to the basic rates.
