Collection and processing of personal data

The operator of the website processes and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted within the legal framework, or if you consent to the data processing.

The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online service by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online service.

Participation in raffles

We process your personal data (last name, first name, email, address, company) for the purpose of drawing as well as notifying the winners.

We evaluate the results of raffles to assess the efficiency and relevance of the campaign and to measure the success of the raffles. In this way, we always improve our marketing offers and can plan new activities. This is also our legitimate interest. By entering your personal data, you confirm that you wish to participate in the raffles voluntarily and that you consent to future contact on our part due to a business initiation (product information and products relevant to you). The legal basis for this is your consent in accordance with Art 6I a) and f), 7 DSGVO EU DSGVO. 

If you are not yet 16 years old, it is mandatory that you have the consent of your parents / guardian. In this case, please contact us directly. You yourself cannot give a legally valid consent in this case.

Participants' data will be deleted no later than 6 months after the end of the competition. Winners' data may be retained for longer, e.g. in order to answer queries about the prizes or to fulfill the prize obligations; in this case, the retention period depends on the type of prize and is up to three years for items or services, for example, in order to be able to process warranty claims.

Legal recourse is excluded with regard to the drawing of the winners and the possible judging of the submitted competition entries.

You have the right to information, to correction, to deletion, to restriction of processing, a right to object, a right to data portability, as well as a right to revoke your consent. In the event of a revocation, you will no longer receive any further marketing information from us. In these cases, please contact us via e-mail:

You can revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons. Your revocation will lead to the deletion of the data we have collected and to your exclusion from the competition.

Rights of the user

As a user, you have the right to request free information on what personal data has been stored about you. You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have the processing of your personal data restricted or deleted. If applicable, you can also assert your right to data portability.

Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer necessary for its intended purpose.
