Collection of personal data
We only collect, process and use your personal information if you provide us with your data voluntarily, for instance in the context of an inquiry, an application, a registration, a survey etc. In this case we will use your personal data, to answer your inquiry, process your order, provide you with access to specific information or offers, for customer administration, for product surveys and for marketing purposes only to the extent necessary for this. To maintain customer relationships, it may also be necessary for us to store and process your personal data and communicate to, for example, our global subsidiary companies to enable us to answer specific inquiries correctly.

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and accept the receipt of the newsletter.
To ensure that procedure, we use the double-opt-in registration process. In the course of this, the potential recipient can be included in a distribution list. For this, the user receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the application legally. Only when the confirmation is made, the address is actively included in the distributor.
