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

1. access data and hosting

You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. The web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file each time a web page is called up, 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 solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh these interests in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data is deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the website.

Hosting services by a third-party provider
As part of the processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides the services for hosting and displaying the website for us.

Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained here.

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 (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process the contract or to process your contact and you can not send the order or contact without their information. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

If you give your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account.
After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further processing and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to the 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 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 below or via a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.

3. data transmission

For the fulfillment of the contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 S. 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 the 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, provided you create an account there. In this case, you must register with the payment service provider during the ordering process with your access data. In this respect, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.

Data transfer to collection companies
For the fulfillment of the contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO, we will pass on your data to a commissioned collection agency if our payment claim has not been settled despite a previous reminder. In this case, the debt will be collected directly by the collection agency. In addition, the disclosure serves to protect our legitimate interests in an effective assertion or enforcement of our payment claim pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests.

4. e-mail newsletter

E-mail advertising when registering for the newsletter

Unsubscribing from the newsletter is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter.

5. Integration of the Trusted Shops trust badge

To display our Trusted Shops seal of approval and the collected ratings, as well as to be able to offer buyers Trusted Shops products after an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is integrated on this website.

This serves to protect our legitimate interests in optimal marketing by enabling secure shopping in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which prevail in the context of a weighing of interests. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne. The Trustbadge is provided by a CDN provider (Content-Delivery-Network) in the context of order processing. Trusted Shops GmbH also uses service providers from the USA. An appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed. Further information on the data protection of Trusted Shops GmbH can be found here.

Each time the Trustbadge is accessed, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, among other things, your IP address, the date and time of the access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. The individual access data are stored in a security database for the analysis of security anomalies. The log files are automatically deleted no later than 90 days after creation.

Further personal data is transmitted to Trusted Shops GmbH if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or if you have already registered to use them. The contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies. For this purpose, personal data is automatically collected from the order data. Whether you as a buyer are already registered for product use is automatically checked using a neutral parameter, the e-mail address hashed by cryptological one-way function. Before transmission, the e-mail address is converted into this hash value, which cannot be decrypted by Trusted Shops. After the match has been checked, the parameter is automatically deleted.

This is necessary to fulfill our and Trusted Shops’ overriding legitimate interests in the provision of the buyer protection linked to the specific order in each case and the transaction-related evaluation services pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Further details, including the objection, can be found in the privacy policy of Trusted Shops linked above and in the Trustbadge.
