Only if you decide to use certain services (e.g. use of the contact form) will it be necessary to process personal data. In doing so, we always ensure that your personal data is only processed in accordance with a legal basis or with your consent. We adhere to the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has been in force since 25.5.2018, and the respective applicable national regulations, such as the Federal Data Protection Act, the Telemedia Act or other more specific laws on data protection.

When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure its stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR):
- IP address

In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. You can find further information on this under the point "Cookies" in this data protection declaration.
Integration of services from other providers
Our website uses contents, services and performances of other providers. These are, for example, services for statistical evaluation of the use and visit of our website. In order for this data to be called up and displayed in the user's browser, the transmission of the user's IP address to this third-party provider is mandatory.
You can contact us by e-mail. In this case, we store the personal data you send us in order to process your request and to contact you to handle your request. The voluntary information is used to specify your request and to improve the processing of your request. The data requested is transmitted to us by you on a purely voluntary basis.
Depending on the type of enquiry, the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for enquiries that you yourself make as part of a pre-contractual measure or Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR if your enquiry is of a different nature. The legitimate interest follows from the purposes mentioned under point 3 a.). If personal data is requested that we do not need for the fulfilment of a contract or for the protection of legitimate interests, the transfer to us is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
If you wish to place an order in our webshop, it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract that you provide your personal data, which we require for the processing of your order. Mandatory data required for the processing of contracts are marked separately, other data are voluntary. We process the data you provide to process your order. For this purpose, we may pass on your payment details to our house bank.
You can voluntarily create a customer account, through which we can save your data for future purchases. When you create an account under "My account", the data you provide will be stored revocably. If you decide to create a customer account, the following personal data will be collected and processed during registration.
Name, first name
Delivery address / billing address (if different)
Credit card information, bank details
You can always correct or delete your data, including your user account, in the customer area. We may also process the data you provide to inform you about other interesting products from our portfolio or to send you e-mails with technical information.
We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. However, we restrict processing after two years, i.e. your data is only used to comply with legal obligations.
To prevent unauthorised access by third parties to your personal data, especially financial data, the ordering process is encrypted using TLS technology.
Personal data which is absolutely necessary for the delivery of the goods or the processing of the contract is passed on to service providers commissioned by us. These are the following categories of service providers:
Shipping service provider
The processing of the aforementioned personal data for the purposes stated here is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Data transmission upon conclusion of a contract for the purchase and shipment of goods
Personal data is only transmitted to third parties if it is necessary for the execution of the contract. Third parties can be, for example, payment service providers or logistics companies. No further transmission of data will take place or only if you have expressly consented to this.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Encrypted payment transactions on this website
If there is an obligation to transmit your payment data (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorisation) to us after the conclusion of a contract with costs, this data is required for payment processing.
Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
With encrypted communication, the payment data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Payment service provider
(https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full), Visa (https://www.visa.de/datenschutz),
In the context of the performance of contracts, we use the payment service providers on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR. Furthermore, we use external payment service providers on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR in order to offer our users effective and secure payment options.
The data processed by the payment service providers includes inventory data, such as name and address, bank data, such as account numbers or credit card numbers, passwords, TANs and checksums, as well as contract, total and recipient-related information. The details are required to carry out the transactions. However, the data entered is only processed by the payment service providers and stored with them. I.e. we do not receive any account or credit card-related information, but only information with confirmation or negative information of the payment. Under certain circumstances, the data may be transmitted by the payment service providers to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness. Please refer to the terms and conditions and data protection information of the payment service providers.
The terms and conditions and data protection information of the respective payment service providers apply to the payment transactions and can be accessed on the respective websites or transaction applications. We also refer to these for further information and the assertion of revocation, information and other data subject rights.

- in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR;

In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is implemented by us without specifying a particular situation.
If you would like to make use of your right of revocation or objection, it is sufficient to send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Disclosure of your personal data
Your personal data will be passed on as described below.
The website is hosted by an external service provider in Germany. In doing so, we ensure that data processing takes place solely in Germany. This is necessary for the operation of the website, as well as for the establishment, implementation and processing of the existing user contract and is also possible without your consent.
Data is also passed on if we are entitled or obliged to pass on data due to legal provisions and/or official or court orders. In particular, this may involve the disclosure of information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
If your data is passed on to service providers to the extent necessary, they will only have access to your personal data to the extent that this is necessary for the fulfilment of their tasks. These service providers are obliged to treat your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the GDPR.
Beyond the aforementioned circumstances, we generally do not transfer your data to third parties without your consent. In particular, we do not pass on any personal data to a body in a third country or to an international organisation.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is never 100% secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our website via the Internet.
However, we secure our website by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons.
In particular, we transmit your personal data in encrypted form. We use the SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/ Transport Layer Security) coding system for this purpose. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
Storage period for personal data
With regard to the storage period, we delete personal data as soon as their storage is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the original purpose and there are no longer any legal retention periods. The statutory retention periods ultimately form the criterion for the final duration of the storage of personal data. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If retention periods exist, processing is restricted in the form of blocking the data.
References and links
Third party service providers may have different and their own regulations regarding the collection, processing and use of personal data. It is therefore advisable to inform yourself on the websites of third parties about their practices for handling personal data before entering personal data.
We are constantly developing our website in order to provide you with an ever-improving service. We will keep this privacy statement up to date and adapt it accordingly if and when this should become necessary.
