Privacy & Cookies

For us it is a special concern to protect your data, which is why we comply with the applicable data protection provisions of the DSGVO and the DSG when processing your personal data (eg master data).

Personal data
No personal information is collected on this website, unless you provide it voluntarily (eg by completing our contact form …). The data provided by you will only be used for the purposes indicated (eg sending an offer, billing ..). Further use or transfer to third parties will not take place.

Further information about the data processing can be found here: Privacy Policy / Information obligation

What is a cookie?
The cookie technique (cookie) allows a web server to deposit information on the user’s PC. This information can be thought of as electronic crumbs that leaves a cookie. Since the web server does not have direct access to the data carrier of the user (that would be even nicer!), He must ask for the browser. But he can only write what he already knows (eg current address, user computer, user input).
The next time this web server is called, the data valid for it is transferred from the cookie file. For some web servers, their offers can only be used if you accept the acceptance of cookies.

What do I get from that?
If you have visited a computer that leaves a cookie on the hard drive, it is possible that the next time you visit this machine you will find personal preferences (eg e-mail address, name, main topics, selections, menus, customer data, etc.) You do not have to enter again. This also saves online time and thus costs.

What is dangerous about that?
This technique could also be used to create a profile about user browsing habits. Keyword: ‘The glass user’. The web server operator could, for example, unnoticed by the user, keep track of his interests.
So if someday you receive a personally tailored promotional e-mail (junk mail), the cookie technique could be to blame.
Of course, the transmission of cookies also requires a certain amount of time. If it over exaggerates a web server operator, it will burden the network, the capacity of your hard drive and your wallet.
A direct security risk does not represent the cookie technique.
If you absolutely do not like cookies, you can deal with AntiCookie programs like “PGP Cookie Cutter” or “Cookie Pal”. With such programs cookies can be completely ignored or cookies of certain providers can be granted “PC ban”.
