Privacy policy

We appreciate your interest in our online shop. Protecting 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. Each time a website is accessed, the web server only automatically stores a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the retrieval.

This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and the improvement of our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our overriding legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your page visit.

Hosting services through a third party
As part of our processing on our behalf, a third party provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. This serves to safeguard our overriding legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer in the context of a balancing of interests. All data collected in connection with the use of this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below will be processed on its servers. Processing on other servers takes place only 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 and when opening a customer account

We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your order, when you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Mandatory fields are marked as such, as in these cases we absolutely need the data for the processing of the contract, or for the processing of your contact or opening of the customer account and you cannot complete the order and/or the opening of the account without their indication, or cannot send the contact. The data collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR for the processing of the contract and the processing of your enquiries. After the complete execution of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the tax and commercial retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use any further data, 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 be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.

3. Data transfer

In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. 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 pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if necessary, to the payment service provider commissioned by us, or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves, insofar as you create 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 newsletter
