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

1. Access data and hosting

You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time a website is accessed, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of access, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access.

These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer as part of a weighing of interests. All access data will be deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your page visit.

Hosting services by a third-party provider In the context of processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides us with the services of hosting and display of the website. This serves to protect our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer within the scope of a weighing of interests. All data collected within the framework of the use of this website or in the forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below will be processed on its servers. A processing on other servers takes place only in the framework explained here.

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

2. Collection and use of data for the execution of contracts, establishing contact

We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with it in connection with your order or when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process the contract or to process your contact and you can not send the order or contact without their information. Which data are raised, are evident from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO for contract processing and processing your enquiries. If you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account. After complete completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the 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 data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can take place either by a message to the contact possibility described below or over a function intended for it in the customer account.

3. Data transfer

In order to fulfil the contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO, 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 and payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service in order to process payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must register with the payment service provider using your access data during the ordering process. In this respect, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.

4. E-mail newsletter

E-mail advertising with newsletter registration
If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the data required for this purpose or provided separately by you in order to send you our e-mail newsletter regularly on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and either by sending a message to the contact person described below or via a link in the newsletter provided for this purpose. After you have unsubscribed, we will delete your e-mail address unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or unless we reserve the right to use further data that is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

E-mail advertising without registration for the newsletter and your right of objection
If we receive your e-mail address in connection with the sale of a product or service and you have not objected to this, we reserve the right to send you regular offers for similar products to those already purchased from our range by e-mail on the basis of § 7 para. 3 UWG. This serves to protect our predominantly legitimate interests in an advertising approach to our customers within the framework of a weighing of interests.
You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the advertising mail without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.

Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for Web Analytics
If you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO, this website uses Google (Universal) Analytics for the purpose of website analysis. The web analytics service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under Irish law and having its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. (www.google.de). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that permit analysis of your use of the website, such as cookies. The automatically collected information about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. By activating IP anonymisation on this website, the IP address is shortened before transmission within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymous IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. The data collected in this context will be deleted after we have stopped using Google Analytics for the intended purpose and at the end of its use.

Insofar as information is transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored there, the American company Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. A current certificate can be viewed here. On the basis of this agreement between the USA and the European Commission, the latter has established an appropriate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. This will prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google.

As an alternative to the browser plug-in, you can click this link to prevent Google Analytics from collecting this data on this website in the future. An opt-out cookie is stored on your end device. If you delete your cookies, you will again be asked to give your consent.

6. Online marketing

Google Ads Remarketing
We use Google Ads to advertise this website in Google search results and on third-party websites. If you have given us your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO, the so-called remarketing cookie will be set by Google when you visit our website, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID and on the basis of the pages you visit. The data collected in this context will be deleted after we have ceased to use Google Ads Remarketing for the intended purpose and at the end of its use.

Additional data processing will only take place if you have consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalize ads you see on the web. In this case, if you are logged into Google while browsing our website, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create and define cross-device remarketing audience lists. For this purpose, Google temporarily links your personal data to Google Analytics data in order to form target groups.

Google Ads is an offer from Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under Irish law and located at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (www.google.de). Where information is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States, the U.S. company Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield.
A current certificate can be viewed here. On the basis of this agreement between the USA and the European Commission, the latter has established an appropriate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield.
