We appreciate your interest in our online store. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about how we handle your data.

1. Access data and hosting

You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time you access a website, 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, date and time of access, amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access.

This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which are overriding in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site.

Hosting services by a third-party provider
As part of a 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 store as described below will be processed on its servers. Processing on other servers takes place only within the framework explained 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, contacting and opening a customer account

We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us in the context of your order or when contacting us (eg by contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data mandatory for contract execution, or to process your contact and you can not send the order or contact without their indication. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you for contract processing and processing of your requests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
If you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account. Further information on the processing of your data, in particular on the transfer to our service providers for the purpose of order, payment and shipping processing, can be found in the following sections of this privacy policy.
After complete processing 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 in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law 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 sending a message to the contact option described in this privacy policy or via a designated function in the customer account.

3. Data transfer

For the fulfillment of the contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 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 pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to payment service providers 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 register with 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.

4. E-mail newsletter
