Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Privacy Policy.

When you use this website, various types of personal data are collected. Personal data is data by which you can be personally identified. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect and how we use it. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (such as communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.


Note on data controllers

The data controller for this website is:


Essener Str. 2-24
46047 Oberhausen

Telephone: +49 208 85 96 700

The controller is the natural or legal entity which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (such as names, e-mail addresses, etc.)


Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.


Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link:


Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.


SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to transmit your payment data to us (such as an account number in the case of direct debit authorisation), this data is required for payment processing.

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

With encrypted communication, the payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Disclosure, blocking, deletion

In accordance with the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correct, block or delete this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for this purpose and for any other questions on the subject of personal data.

Objection to advertising e-mails

The use of contact data published within the scope of the site notice obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example by spam e-mails.
