7.1 SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact enquiries that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser contains a "https://" instead of a "http://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.
7.2 Data collection when visiting the website
When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a series of general data and information each time you or an automated system access a page. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The following can be recorded
1. Browser types and versions used,
2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
3. the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
4. the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
5. the date and time of access to the website,
6. an abbreviated internet protocol address (anonymised IP address) as well as,
7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required in order to
1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
2. to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
3. to ensure the permanent operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Therefore, the data and information collected will be evaluated by us, on the one hand, statistically and, on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.
7.3 Cloudflare (Content Delivery Network)
Our website uses functions from CloudFlare. The provider is CloudFlare, Inc. 665 3rd St. #200, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
CloudFlare offers a globally distributed content delivery network with DNS. Technically, the information transfer between your browser and our website is routed via CloudFlare's network. CloudFlare is thus able to analyse the data traffic between users and our websites, for example, in order to detect and ward off attacks on our services. In addition, CloudFlare may store cookies on your computer for optimisation and analysis.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.

We have concluded a corresponding agreement with Cloudflare on the basis of the German Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) for commissioned processing or in accordance with EU standard contractual clauses.

Cloudflare uses the log data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer.
If you have consented to Cloudflare being used, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in using Cloudflare to optimise our online offering and make it more secure. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
