Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

1. Access Data and Hosting

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever you call up a website, the web server merely automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the call, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.

This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer in the context of a weighing of interests. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to our website.

Hosting Services by a Third Party Provider

In the context of processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework described here.

This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

2. Data Collection and Use for Contract Processing, Contact

We collect personal data when you provide us with this information as part of your order or when you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, as in these cases we need the data for the processing of the contract or for the processing of your contact and you cannot complete the order or send the contact without providing it. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

We use the data you provide us with in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR for contract processing and processing your enquiries. After complete processing of the contract, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the expiry of any retention periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data for other purposes that are legally permitted and about which we inform you in this declaration.

3. Data Transfer

In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the ordering process, we will pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service for the processing of payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you open an account there. In this case you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this respect the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.

4. E-Mail Newsletters and Postal Advertising

E-Mail Advertising with Newsletter Subscription
