We host the content of our website with the following provider:
This website is externally hosted. Personal data collected on this website is stored on the servers of the hosting provider(s). This may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta- and communication data, contract data, contact details, names, website accesses, and other data generated via a website.
External hosting is carried out for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast, and efficient provision of our online offering by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). If consent has been obtained, processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, provided the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (e.g. device fingerprinting). Consent can be revoked at any time.
Our host(s) will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfill its contractual obligations and will follow our instructions regarding this data.
We use the following host(s):

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The responsible entity for data processing on this website is:
Ob. Leimbach 2, 57074 Siegen, Germany
Telephone: [Telephone number of the responsible entity]
E-Mail: [Email address of the responsible entity]
The responsible entity is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, email addresses, etc.).
If you have given consent to data processing, we process your personal data based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR (for special categories of personal data). If personal data processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. If personal data processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR), or in the interest of legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), this is done unless the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject requiring personal data protection outweigh these interests.
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other countries that are not secure in terms of data protection. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that in these countries, a data protection level comparable to that of the EU cannot be guaranteed. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. It cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment 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 responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time.
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, you can contact us at any time. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
If you restrict the processing of your personal data this data - apart from its storage - may only be shared with you your consent or to assert, exercise or defend of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important importance public interest of the European Union or a Member State are processed.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize 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.
Our website uses so-called "cookies." Cookies are small data packets that do not harm your device.

Cookies that are necessary for the electronic communication process, the provision of certain functions you request (e.g., shopping cart function), or the optimization of the website (e.g., cookies for measuring the web audience) are stored based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent for storing cookies and similar recognition technologies has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG); consent can be revoked at any time.

Mandatory legal provisions - in particular, retention periods - remain unaffected.

The data you send to us via contact inquiries will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after completing the processing of your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular, legal retention periods – remain unaffected."
