In doing so, we, or our hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website on the basis of our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR. Art. 28 GDPR.

We collect information about you when you use this website.

We use this log data without allocation to your person or other profiling for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our website, but also for anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent and type of use of our website and services, as well as for billing purposes to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. Based on this information, we can provide personalized and location-based content and analyze traffic, troubleshoot and fix errors and improve our services.
This is also our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR.

We reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision or billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After canceling the order process or after receipt of payment, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offense in connection with the use of our website. We also store the date of your last visit as part of your account (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking on links, etc.).

We use so-called session cookies to optimize our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and is temporarily stored on your hard disk. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They are used, for example, to enable you to use the shopping cart function across several pages.
We also use a small number of persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your end device), which remain on your end device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are stored on your hard disk and delete themselves after the specified time. Their lifespan is 1 month to 10 years. This enables us to present our website to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.

Our legitimate interest in the use of cookies in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR is to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.
The following data and information is stored in the cookies
Log-in information

When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be assigned to you are not stored in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymised information, for example about which pages of our shop have been visited, which products have been viewed, etc.

You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide in individual cases whether you want to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, or that cookies are completely prevented. This may limit the functionality of the website.
Data for the fulfilment of our contractual obligations
We process personal data that we require to fulfil our contractual obligations, such as name, address, email address, products ordered, invoice and payment data. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.
The data is deleted after the warranty periods and statutory retention periods have expired. Data that is linked to a user account (see below) is always retained for the duration of the management of this account.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b) GDPR, as this data is required so that we can fulfil our contractual obligations towards you.

You can create a user account on our website. If you wish to do so, we require the personal data requested when you log in. When logging in later, only your email or user name and the password you have chosen are required.
For new registrations, we collect master data (e.g. name, address), communication data (e.g. e-mail address) and payment data (bank details) as well as access data (user name and password).
To ensure your proper registration and to prevent unauthorised logins by third parties, you will receive an activation link by e-mail after your registration to activate your account. Only after successful registration will we permanently store the data you provide in our system.
Once you have created a user account, you can have it deleted by us at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A notification in text form to the contact details stated under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. We will then delete your stored personal data, unless we still need to store it to process orders or due to statutory retention obligations.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) GDPR.

The data requested in the registration process is required to register for the newsletter. Registration for the newsletter is logged. After registering, you will receive a message to the email address provided asking you to confirm your registration (‘double opt-in’). This is necessary to prevent third parties from registering with your e-mail address.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus unsubscribe from the newsletter.

We store the registration data for as long as it is required for sending the newsletter. We store the logging of the registration and the dispatch address as long as there is an interest in proving the consent originally given; as a rule, these are the limitation periods for civil law claims, i.e. a maximum of three years.
The legal basis for sending the newsletter is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with Section 7 para. 2 no. 3 UWG. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest in proving that the newsletter was sent with your consent.
You can cancel the registration at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A notification in text form to the contact details stated under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter.

We will send you regular product recommendations by e-mail independently of the newsletter. In this way, we send you information about products from our range that you may be interested in based on your recent purchases of goods or services from us. We do this strictly in accordance with legal requirements. You can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A message in text form to the contact details stated under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every e-mail.
The legal basis for this is the statutory authorisation pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR in conjunction with Section 7 para. 3 UWG.

If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or email), we will process your data to process the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

If the data processing takes place for the implementation of pre-contractual measures that take place in response to your enquiry or, if you are already our customer, for the implementation of the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b) GDPR.
We only process other personal data if you consent to this (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) GDPR) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR). A legitimate interest lies, for example, in responding to your email.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by site visitors is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
This is also our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR.
Google has submitted to the Privacy Shield Agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and is certified. Google thereby undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find more information in the following linked entry: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.
We have activated IP anonymisation on this website (anonymizeIp). However, this means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the transmission of the 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 plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative to the browser plugin or within browsers on mobile devices, you can click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data within this website in the future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you must click this link again): [Deactivate Google Analytics]

Unless specifically stated, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes pursued.
In some cases, the legislator provides for the retention of personal data, for example in tax or commercial law. In these cases, the data will only be stored by us for these legal purposes, but will not be processed in any other way and will be deleted after the statutory retention period has expired.

Your personal data is transmitted to us in encrypted form. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 GDPR, which we constantly adapt to the state of the art.

We also do not guarantee that our service will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.
Transfer of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries
In principle, we only use your personal data within our company.
If and insofar as we involve third parties in the fulfilment of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing (‘order processing’), we contractually oblige order processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to guarantee the protection of the rights of the data subject.
There is no data transfer to bodies or persons outside the EU outside the case mentioned in this declaration in section 4 and there are no plans to do so.
