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 websites without providing 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 retrieval, transferred data volume and the requesting provider. These data are used exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our services and do not allow us to identify you personally.
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 after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us or our partner companies to recognize your browser during your next visit (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 whether to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
This website uses 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 analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance 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 where it will be shortened. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
Data collection and use for contract processing and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with it in connection with your order, when you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when you open a customer account. Which data are raised, are evident from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you for contract processing and processing your enquiries. After complete completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted at the end of the tax and commercial retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use more data, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you below. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can take place either by a message to the contact possibility described below or over a function intended for it in the customer account.
Data transfer for the fulfilment of the contract
For the fulfilment of the contract we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, as far as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. In order to process payments, we pass on the necessary payment data to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the payment service selected by you in the ordering process.

Storage of customer data
You may revoke any consent you may have given to the storage of your customer data at any time with effect for the future.
