Any questions about data processing in our company should be directed to the same e-mail address. You are also entitled to complain to the data protection supervisory authority.
Rights of objection
Please note the following with respect to the rights of objection:
When we process your personal data for purposes of direct advertising, you have the right to object to such data processing at any time without indication of reasons. The same applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to direct advertising.
When you object to processing for purposes of direct advertising, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. You can notify you objection free of charge and without observing requirements of form, ideally at:
In the event that we process your data for the sake of legitimate interests, you can object to such processing at any time for reasons having to do with your particular situation; the same applies to any profiling on the basis of these provisions.
We will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling, legitimate reasons for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or when the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending against legal claims.
Secure transmission of your data
We employ appropriate technical and organisational safeguards to protect the data stored with us as well as possible against accidental or intentional manipulations, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. The level of security is continually reviewed and adapted to meet new security standards in collaboration with security experts.
Data transfers from and to our website are always encrypted. As the transmission protocol for our websites, we offer HTTPS and we always use the latest encryption protocols. It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (e.g. postal service).
Duration of data storage
We will store your data for as long as needed for the given processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continues to be stored. We are particularly required to do this by retention obligations under commercial law or tax law. Data is routinely erased as soon as no further retention obligations are in effect.
Furthermore, we may store your data when you have granted us your consent to do this or in the event of legal disputes, when we use the data as evidence for purposes of statutory limitation periods, which can last up to three years; the regular limitation period is three years.
Contact form/ Contact by e-mail (Art. 6 para. 1 letter a, b EU-GDPR)
Contact form / contact by e-mail Ravenbelt
A contact form that can be used for contacting us electronically is available on our website. When you write to us using the contact form, we will process the data you enter into the contact form to contact you and answer your questions and wishes.
In this respect, we observe the principle of data minimisation and data avoidance in that you only need to enter the data that we absolutely need to contact you. That includes your e-mail address and the message field itself. In addition, your IP address is also processed as a matter of technical necessity and for legal protection. All other data is requested in optional fields and can be provided optionally (e.g. to answer your questions more specifically in relation to you).
If you contact us by e-mail, we process the personal data communicated in the e-mail only for the purpose of processing your request.
Our web pages use so-called “cookies” in several places. They serve the purpose of making our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser (locally on your hard drive).
These cookies make it possible for us to analyse how users use our websites. They allow us to design the website contents to meet the needs of users, for example. Cookies also enable us to measure the effectiveness of a given advertisement and place it in accordance with the user’s topical interests, for example.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” These are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies are automatically deleted by your computer when the corresponding period of validity has expired (usually after six months) or when you delete them yourself before the expiration of the period of validity.
Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. Usually, however, you can also change your browser settings if you would rather not send us the information. In this case, you will still be able to use the offerings of our website without restrictions (exception: configurators).
Please note that when you deactivate cookies, all the functions of our website may not be fully usable.
Social media plug-ins of social networks / YouTube
We have no influence on the data collected and the data processing procedures and we also do not know the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing or the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of collected data by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected on you in the form of usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its websites to meet the needs of users. Such analysis is particularly performed (also for users who are not logged in) to present relevant advertisements and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of these user profiles, for which purpose you must contact each plug-in provider. With these plug-ins, we give you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as the user.
The basis for the processing of your personal data is your consent, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a EU-GDPR.
The plug-in provider processes and stores your data in the USA. They are obliged by corresponding contractual regulations to comply with the data protection standards and the data protection level of the EU. Data processing or storage in third countries can also take place on the basis of your consent (Art. 49 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a EU-GDPR), in which case you will be informed of this separately when obtaining your consent.
You can revoke your consent at any time for the future. To do so, simply call up our Consent banner and deselect the corresponding setting. Please note that the change in the Consent Banner settings must be made individually for each end device.

Data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in to it. When you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data that is collected by us is directly attributed to your account with the plug-in provider. If you activate the button and link to the page (for example), the plug-in provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend that you always log out after using a social network, but especially before activating the button because this way you can prevent the attribution of information to your profile with the plug-in provider.
You can find additional information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider in the data protection policies of these providers, which are shared in the following. There you will also find additional information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy.

Our website includes links to videos from the external video platform YouTube. The associated plugins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. By default, only inactivated images from the YouTube channel are embedded and do not provide an automatic connection to YouTube’s servers. Consequently that operator receives no user data when you view these Web pages.
You can decide for yourself whether YouTube videos should be activated. Your consent for the necessary data to be transferred to the operator (including the Internet address of the current page and the user’s IP address) will only be given when you approve for the video to play by clicking “start video.”
To store the setting that a user wishes, we set a cookie that contains these parameters. When we set these cookies, we do not store any personal data – the cookies contain only anonymized data to adjust the browser. Then the videos will be active and you can play them. If you want to inactivate automatic loading for YouTube videos, you can change your Web browser’s settings to reject cookies or limit their acceptance.
