Privacy Notice

Privacy Policy
Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.


Storage of Access Data in Server Log Files
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time a website is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file which, for example, contains the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the call, the transmitted data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the request.
These access data are evaluated only for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improvement of our services. Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f GDPR, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which predominate within the scope 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.


Third-Party Hosting Services
As part of processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides us with hosting and website presentation services. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which predominate within the scope of a balancing of interests. All data collected in the context of the use of this website or in the forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place in the framework described here.
This service provider is based in Germany.


Data Collection and Use for Contract Execution and when Creating an Account
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide it to us in connection with your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when creating a customer account. Mandatory fields are marked as such, since in these cases we require the data for contract processing, or for processing your contact or creation of the customer account and you cannot complete the order and/or the account creation or can not send the contact without their specification. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you 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 storage periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, 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 by sending a message to the contact option described below.


Data Transfer for Contract Fulfilment
In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 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 order process, we pass on the payment data collected for the processing of payments 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 if 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. The data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies in this respect.
