Privacy Policy

 We appreciate your interest in our online shop. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. We inform you in detail below about the handling of your data.

1. Access data and hosting
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time a website is called up, the web server automatically stores a so-called server log file which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of retrieval, transferred data volume 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 as well as the improvement of our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) sent. 1 GDPR, this serves the preservation of our legitimate interest in a correct presentation of our offer, which predominates in the context of a weighing up of interests. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your website visit.

Hosting services by a third party 
Within the framework of commissioned processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides the services for hosting and displaying the website. This serves the preservation of our legitimate interest in a correct presentation of our offer, which predominates in the context of a weighing up of interests. All data collected as part of the use of this website or in designated forms in the online shop as described below will be processed on its servers. Processing on other servers takes place only in the context 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 opening a customer account
We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide us with this in the context of your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Obligatory fields are marked as such, since in these cases we need the data for contract execution or to process your contact or for opening the customer account and you can not complete the order and/or open the account or make contact without this information. The respective input forms show what data is collected. We use the data communicated by you in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) sent. 1 GDPR for contract handling and processing of your inquiries. After completion 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 a further use of your data or we reserve the right to further use of the data, which is legally permitted and about which we inform you in this statement. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by a message to the contact option described below or via a designated function in the customer account.

 
3. Data transfer

For fulfilment of the contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) sent. 1 GDPR, we pass on your data to the shipping company responsible for the delivery, as far as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the order process, we will forward payment data collected to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and any payment service providers commissioned by us to process the payments or to the selected payment service. The selected payment service providers sometimes also collect this data themselves, provided that 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 privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.

We use payment service providers based in a state outside the European Union. The transfer of personal data to this company takes place only in the context of the need to fulfil the contract.
