9. Online & Affiliate Marketing 

We have some accounts on social networks to connect and communicate with our customers, interested parties, and active users, and to inform them about our services. Please note that when you access these networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing policies of their respective operators will apply.


Social Networks are included on our website only as a link to the relevant services. After clicking the integrated graphics you will be redirected to the website of the respective provider, and only then will the user information be sent to the appropriate provider. If you are logged into a social network, this provider can assign the visit to your account. If you don't want this, we recommend you log out of your account beforehand. If you are not a member of a social network, there is the possibility that the provider may still discover and store your IP address. If you do not want this to happen, you should not click the buttons. If you do not click on the graphic, there is no exchange between you and the providers of the social media buttons.


We use following Social Media Platforms:

2. Instagram (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland) – data privacy statement/ Opt-Out:

3. Pinterest (Pinterest Inc., San Francisco, 505 Brannan St, United States) privacy-policy


We refrain from using any social network plugins on our website as they automatically transmit a significant amount of user data to the respective social network operators. Such automatic data transmission to social network operators is deemed illegal and can be subject to legal action, as per the data protection authorities and courts. Thus, we do not engage in such data transmission on our website without the explicit consent of the user.

This website uses the Third-Party tool Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We use Google Analytics to better understand how our website is used, and to improve its design and functionality.

This information is processed and collected with your consent, and it provides us with valuable insights for optimizing our website and marketing campaigns.

IP anonymization

We have enabled the IP anonymization function on our website. This means that Google will shorten your IP address within the European Union or other countries that are part of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmitting it to the United States. In exceptional cases, the full IP address may be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports on website activity, and provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. However, your IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

We will keep the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or it is no longer necessary for the purpose it was collected, for example, if we have fulfilled your request. This provision does not affect any mandatory statutory provisions, particularly those regarding mandatory data retention periods.

Mainly no data is passed on. All Plugins (like Google Analytics) that use your data automatically are listed below. Personal data protection standards differ between countries inside and outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). We also use service providers located outside the EU/EEA, like Google Analytics to process your data. However, it is important to note that there is currently no EU Commission resolution that confirms the adequacy of data protection in these third countries. To ensure that your data is processed with the same level of security as it would be within the EU/EEA, we have taken special measures. We sign data protection clauses with service providers in third countries provided by the EU Commission. These clauses offer guarantees for the protection of your data with service providers in third countries. 

4. To whom is you data passed on? 

We take the processing of your personal data seriously and adhere to the regulations set forth in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Federal Data Protection Law, and other applicable laws.

This includes the collection, processing, and transfer of certain personal data. We ensure that all processing of your personal data is carried out in compliance with these laws and regulations. We collect data to ensure the proper functioning of the website, prevent and detect attacks, and analyze how visitors use the website for market researches and marketing purposes. We may also use your data to respond to feedback or send newsletters.
