Privacy policy

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 giving any personal information. Whenever you call up a website, the web server merely 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 the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.

This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer in the context of a weighing of interests. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to our website.

Hosting services through a third party provider

In the context of data processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh the interests of the parties involved. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the scope described here.

2. Data collection and use for contract processing and for opening a customer account

We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with this information as part of your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data for the processing of the contract, or for the processing of your message or opening of a customer account, and you cannot complete the order and/or the opening of an account or send the message without their indication. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide us with in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR for contract processing and processing your enquiries. 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 tax and commercial law retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data for other purposes which are legally permitted 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 by using a function in the customer account intended for this purpose.

3. data transfer

In our shop, the following payment methods are available to you:

In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR we forward 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 bank commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service for the processing of payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers may also collect this data themselves if you open an account there. In this case, you must log on 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.

We use payment service providers that are based in a country outside the European Union. The transmission of personal data to this company only takes place within the scope of the necessity for the fulfilment of the contract.

 

4. e-mail newsletters and postal advertising

E-mail advertising with newsletter subscription

If you register for our newsletter, we will use the data required for this purpose or data provided separately by you to send you our e-mail newsletter regularly on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR.

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

Postal advertising and your right of objection

Furthermore, we reserve the right to use your first and last name as well as your postal address for our own advertising purposes, e.g. to send you interesting offers and information about our products by letter post. This serves to protect our legitimate interests, which outweigh the interests of our customers, in a promotional approach in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

5. cookies and web analysis

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, to display suitable products or for market research, we use so-called cookies on various pages. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in an optimised presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. Cookies are small text files which are automatically stored on your end device. Some of the cookies used by us are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us (persistent cookies). You can see the duration of storage in the cookie settings of your web browser. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. Each browser differs in the way it manages the cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of each browser, which explains how you can change your cookie settings. You can find these for each browser under the following links:

Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analysis

For website analysis, this website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (www.google.de). This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in an optimised presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which outweigh the interests of the parties involved. Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that enable an analysis of your use of the website, such as cookies. The automatically collected information about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. 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 states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. The data collected in this context will be deleted after the end of the purpose and use of Google Analytics by us.

Google LLC has its headquarters in the USA and 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 adequate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield.

You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

As an alternative to the browser plugin, you can click this link to prevent Google Analytics from recording data on this website in the future. In doing so, an opt-out cookie will be stored on your end device. If you delete your cookies, you have to click the link again.

6. social media plug-ins

Use of social plugins from Facebook using the Shariff solution.

Social buttons from social networks are used on our website.

This serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in an optimal marketing of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, these buttons are not fully integrated into the page as plug-ins, but only by using an HTML link. This integration ensures that when a page of our website containing such buttons is opened, no connection is yet established with the servers of the provider of the respective social network.

If you click on one of the buttons, a new window of your browser opens up the page of the respective service provider, on which you can (if necessary after entering your login data) e.g. press the Like or Share button.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers on their sites as well as a contact option and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the providers' data protection information. https://www.facebook.com/policy.php
