Service providers


We use different data processors in our daily processing. These process your personal data in accordance with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR only according to our instructions and have no claims whatsoever on these data. We also monitor our processors and include only those who meet our high standards. Because we use different data processors and change them from time to time, it is not appropriate to identify specific recipients of personal information. However, if you are interested, we will be happy to disclose the name of the processor(s) in use at that time upon request.


Third parties


In addition to data processors, we also work with third parties, to whom we also transmit your personal data, but who are not bound by our instructions. These are, for example, our consultants, lawyers or tax consultants who receive your data from us on the basis of a contract and process your personal data for legal reasons or to protect our own interests. We do not sell or rent your personal data to third parties under any circumstances. This will never take place without your explicit consent.


Prosecuting authorities and legal proceedings


Unfortunately, it can happen that a few of our customers and service providers do not behave fairly and want to harm us. In these cases, we are not only obliged to hand over personal data due to legal obligations, it is also in our interest to prevent damage and to enforce our claims and to reject unjustified claims.


Social Media Fanpages


We have profiles on various social media platforms on which we advertise our products and interact with customers. Since we operate these profiles on third-party platforms, each time you visit these social media channels the operators collect different personal data from you.




We and the respective operators of the social media platforms act as joint controllers. Where two or more controllers jointly determine the purposes and means of processing, they shall be joint controllers. The social media platforms Facebook and Instagram are operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland.


We are responsible for all interactions on our own platforms. The operators of the social media platforms themselves are data controllers for general interactions and interactions outside our profiles. An exception applies to the data processing described below for the usage analysis (page insights); we are jointly responsible with Facebook for this.


The following links will show you exactly which data is collected by the respective social media operators:

Data processing


For pages, Facebook provides page administrators with statistics and insights that help them understand the types of actions people take on their pages ("Page Insights"). When you visit or interact with a Page or its content, information such as the following may be collected and used to create Page Insights:


Viewing a Page, or a post or video from a Page


โ— Following or unfollowing a Page
โ— Liking or unliking a Page or post
โ— Recommending a Page in a post or comment
โ— Commenting on, sharing or reacting to a Page post (including the type of reaction)
โ— Hiding a Page's post or reporting it as spam
โ— Clicking a link to a Page from another Page on Facebook or from a website off Facebook
โ— Hovering over a Page's name or profile picture to see a preview of the Page's content
โ— Clicking on the website, phone number, Get Directions button or other button on a Page
โ— Whether you're on a computer or mobile device while visiting or interacting with a Page or its content


We and Facebook are jointly responsible for the processing of your data for the provision of page insights. For this purpose, we and Facebook have agreed in an agreement which and a division of our data protection obligations according to Art. 26 GDPR shall be agreed.


Your data subject rights


For all data processing on this website, we are solely responsible for processing your data in accordance with data protection regulations. As part of our agreement with Facebook, we have determined that Facebook is primarily responsible for fulfilling its information obligations in connection with the Page Insight data and for ensuring that you exercise your rights under the GDPR. For more information about your data subject rights on Facebook, please see Facebook's Page-Inside Privacy Policy.


Data processing outside the EU


We process your data mainly within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). However, some of our service providers mentioned above are based outside the EU and the EEA. The GDPR has high requirements for the transfer of personal data to third countries. All our data receivers have to measure up to these requirements. Before we transfer your data to a service provider in third countries, every service provider is first assessed with regard to its data protection level. Only if they can demonstrate an adequate level of data protection will they be shortlisted for service providers.


Regardless of whether our service providers are located within the EU/EEA or in third countries, each service provider must sign a data processing agreement with us. Service providers outside the EU/EEA must meet additional requirements. According to Art. 44 ff. GDPR personal data may be transferred to service providers that meet at least one of the following requirements:

a. Commission has decided that the third country ensures an adequate level of protection (e.g. Canada): adequacy decision
b. Standard data protection clauses adopted: These are contractual clauses which cannot be modified by the contracting parties and in which they undertake to ensure an adequate level of data protection.
c. Qualification for an Exemption by the EU Commission


Right of modification


We reserve the right to change this data protection declaration in compliance with the statutory provisions. We will inform you of any significant changes, such as changes of purpose or new purposes of processing.
