Thank you for your interest in our online shop. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail how we are processing your personal data.
Access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without disclosing any personal data. Whenever you pull up a website, the web server automatically saves a server log file, which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the amount of data which has been transferred and the requesting provider (data of accessing entity) – that way, the web server will be documenting your request.
This data of the accessing entity is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominant legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our range of offer in the context of a weighing of interests. All data of the accessing entity will be deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your site visit.
Hosting services through a third-party provider
As part of processing on our behalf, a third party provider is responsible for hosting and displaying the website. All data which are collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on his servers. Processing on other servers only will take place within the scope which is explained here.
This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.
Data collection and use for contract processing, establishing contact and opening a customer account
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with this information as part of your order or when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or email). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process the contract or your contact and you can not send the order or contact without providing such data. Which data will be collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

As long as you have given your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR 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 restricted for further processing 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 that are legally permitted and about which we inform you in this policy. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and you can request this either by sending a message to the contact option described below or by using a function in the customer account which is provided for this purpose.
We also use an external merchandise management system for order and contract processing. The data transfer or data processing is based on order processing.
The same applies to the transfer of data to our manufacturers or wholesalers when they ship the goods on our behalf.
Data transfer to debt collection agencies
In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR, 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 protects our legitimate interests, which outweigh our interests, in the effective assertion or enforcement of our payment claim in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
Email newsletters and postal advertising
