Privacy Policy


For us it is a matter of course to handle your personal data responsibly when you use our websites and communicate with us electronically. We take all necessary measures to protect the personal data you have provided and comply with the national and European data protection regulations in force. 
In this Data Privacy Statement we wish to inform you of the way in which we process your personal data. Please note that the body responsible for your personal data in connection with a website is the company named in the legal information of the website concerned.

We only record personal data that you wish to provide us or that is necessary so we can provide our service to you. When you visit our website, by default our web servers save amongst other things

  • details of the browser and operating system you are using
  • the website from which you are visiting us
  • the websites of ours that you visit
  • the date of your visit
  • also for security reasons, e.g. to recognise attacks on our websites and for a period of seven days the Internet Protocol address (IP address) that was allocated to you by your Internet Service Provider.

Other personal data are stored if you give these to us voluntarily. Thus you provide us with your email address, your name, your postal address, your phone number and as the case may be other data in order to receive information about our products, take part in competitions or surveys, buy products or simply keep up to date on the products that interest you.

When you access our website and enter something in free text fields and for example comment, our systems will store your IP address. We need this information for security reasons, to prevent misuse and for other risk prevention purposes.


We take technical and organisational security measures to protect the data belonging to you that we manage against manipulation, loss, destruction and access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological development.

Only authorised employees have access to your personal data. As the case may be, these can also be authorised employees of our service providers who process the data on our behalf or have access to these data. In this case we will have concluded a so-called “contract data processing agreement” with the service provider.


We use your personal data for purposes of the technical administration of the website, for customer management, for answering your questions as part of our consumer service, for product enquiries and surveys, and for marketing only to the extent necessary for this at any time. We only use your personal data for the purposes for which you have provided them to us. 

If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, these data will also be used for the purposes stated in the corresponding consent, e.g. sending a newsletter, sending you products. You can retract your consent to this at any time with future effect.

In terms of individual use, we want to make our advertising media, such as our newsletter and your visit to our websites, as user-friendly and individual as possible. Automatically generated information and the information you have provided help us here to provide individual and customised information for you. Amongst other things, this information includes “technical data” (e.g. IP address, the operating system, browser), date and time of your visit to our website and “behavioural data” (service history, recipes and products you have viewed). 


We will not make your personal data available to any other company wishing to use them for direct marketing activities unless you have given us your permission to do so. Furthermore we will provide your personal data to the other bodies below to a greatly limited extent:


  • Our service providers, so that they can assist us for example in administering our website or sending out products and newsletters. We have contractually obliged these companies to take the same security measures as we have with regard to your personal data, to preserve the confidentiality of your data and only to process them on our express instructions. 
  • Other companies in our group, provided you have consented to this or these companies work on our behalf as our service providers and we have contractually obliged them in the same way as our service providers.
  • Transmissions of personal data to government institutions and authorities take place only in the context of obligatory valid legal provisions.

Your personal data can be transmitted to other countries if one of our service providers has its registered office abroad. In this case a so-called “contract data processing agreement” is concluded with the service provider to ensure that the same degree of data protection and data security exists as prevails in Germany. This is guaranteed among other things by the fact that the service provider is obliged to act exclusively on our instructions and to continuously take all technical measures to protect your personal data to the same extent as here.

If personal data are processed in a country outside the EU and the EEA, we either ensure the appropriate level of data protection by concluding the standard agreement provided for this by the EU or an adequacy decision from the EU Commission is in place for the country concerned. 


Your personal data are processed on the basis of declarations of consent you have actively issued, e.g. for being sent newsletters.


Your rights in respect of your personal data are stated below:

  • The right to information, correction, deletion restriction of processing, objection to processing and the right to data transferability.
  • You also have the right to retract any consent you have granted for the processing of your personal data at any time with future effect.
  • To assert these rights please contact our data protection officer using the contact details stated above. 
  • In addition we would like to draw your attention to the fact that in every one of our newsletters you have the option of unsubscribing from this service and thus retracting your consent.
  • Unfortunately due to the lack of clear identification it is not possible to obtain information about your personal data by phone.
  • In addition you have the right of complaint to a data protection supervisory authority.
