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 how we handle your data.

Storage of access data in server log files

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. We only store access data in so-called server log files, such as the name of the requested file, date and time of the request, transferred data volume and the requesting provider. These data are evaluated exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and do not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.

Data collection and use for contract processing and 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. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide us with for the purpose of contract processing and handling your inquiries. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use 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 permitted by law and about which we inform you below. 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.

Data transfer for contract fulfillment

In order to fulfil the contract, we will 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 the payment service provider you select in the order 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.

Use of data when registering for the e-mail newsletter

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 in accordance with your consent. 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.

Use of cookies

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use 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 terminal device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us (persistent cookies). 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. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Use of social plugins from Facebook using the Shariff solution

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from social networks. In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are not fully integrated into the page, but only by using an HTML link (so-called “Shariff solution” by c’t). This integration ensures that when a page of our website containing such plugins is called up, no connection is yet established with the servers of the provider of the respective social network. Click on one of the buttons, a new window of your browser opens and calls up the page of the respective service provider, where 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 data by the providers on their sites as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of the providers.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website.

Through the extension your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google LLC. server in the USA and shortened there. In these exceptional cases, this processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with further services related to website and Internet use.

Facebook pixel for the creation of custom audiences

Within our online offer the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook is used, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). If a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us, which is played on Facebook, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook pixel. To the extent that our pixel page allows data to be shared with Facebook, this URL parameter is written to the user’s browser via a cookie that our linked page itself sets. This cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data to be forwarded to Facebook. With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have specific characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined by the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not appear to be annoying. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”). The data collected is anonymous to us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Guidelines https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. The data may enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook. The data processing associated with the use of the Facebook Pixel is based on our predominantly legitimate interest in the evaluation, optimization and economic operation of our online offering and our advertising measures in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The information generated by Facebook is usually transferred to a Facebook server and stored there, this may also result in a transfer to the servers of Facebook Inc. in the USA. Facebook Inc. with headquarters in the USA is certified for the us European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. In order to object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and the use of your data to display Facebook ads in general, you can set an opt-out cookie by clicking on the link below, which deactivates Facebook pixel tracking:
