Privacy Policy

 

Thank you for your interest in our online shop. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Please find more information on how we treat your data below.
 
1. Access Data and Hosting

You can visit our web pages without providing us with information about your identity. Every time you access a website, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of access, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and which documents the retrieval. This access data is analysed exclusively for the purposes of guaranteeing a disruption-free operation of the site, as well as the improvement of our offer. According to Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (f) GDPR, this serves to safeguard our major legitimate interests in the correct representation of our offer. All access data will be erased seven days after you have finished visiting our site at the latest.

Hosting Services by a Third-Party Provider
As part of processing carried out on our behalf, a third-party provider carries out services for the hosting and display of the website. This serves to safeguard our major legitimate interests in the correct representation of our offer. All data which is collected as part of the use of this website, or in forms intended for this purpose on the online shop as described below, will be processed on their servers. Processing on other servers only occurs within the scope outlined here. This service provider resides within a country belonging to the European Union or the European Economic Area.
 
2. Data Collection and Use for Contract Processing and upon Opening of a Customer Account

We collect personal data if you disclose them voluntarily as part of your order, while contacting us (e.g. by contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Obligatory fields are marked as such, as; in these cases, we urgently require this data for contract processing or for the processing of your contact request or opening the customer account, and you will be unable to complete the order and/or the account opening or send off your contact request without supplying them. Which data is collected is apparent from the corresponding input form. In accordance with Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (b) GDPR, we use the data with which you have provided us for contract processing and the processing of your queries. After the successful completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be limited for its further processing and, after the expiry of the retention periods stipulated by fiscal and commercial law, erased, insofar as you have not expressly consented to the further use of your data or insofar as we are subject to a legally permissible use of data which extends beyond this, of which we inform you in this policy. Erasure of your customer account is possible at any time and may either be completed by sending a message to the contact option specified below or by an intended function in the customer account.
 
3. Data Sharing

For the contract performance according to Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (b) GDPR, we will forward your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery if this is necessary for the delivery of the ordered goods. Depending on the payment service provider that you choose in the order process, we will, for the processing of payments, forward the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and payment service providers commissioned by us, if applicable, and/or to the selected payment service. The selected payment service providers will partly also collect these data themselves, if you create an account there. In this case, you will have to log on to the payment service provider with your access data during the order process. In this connection, the privacy policy of the relevant payment service provider applies.
We make use of a payment service provider that has its registered office in a country outside the European Union. Personal data are only transferred to such company when this is necessary to fulfil the contract.
 
4. E-Mail Newsletter

E-Mail Advertisements with Subscription to the Newsletter
If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the data required for such purpose or transferred by you separately in order to send you our newsletter on a regular basis based upon your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (a) GDPR. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, either by sending a message to the contact specified below or by using a corresponding link provided for such purpose in the newsletter. After you have unsubscribed, we will delete your e-mail address unless you have explicitly consented to the further use of your data or we reserve the more far-reaching use of the data which is legally permitted and of which we inform you in this declaration.

Right to Object

Insofar as we process personal data for the safeguarding of our legitimate interests as explained above, you can object to this processing with effect for the future. Should the processing be carried out for the purposes of direct marketing, you may exercise this right at any time, as described above.

After you have exercised your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes, unless we are able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. This does not apply if the processing takes place for the purposes of direct marketing. Should this be the case, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.
