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.
1. Access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever you call up a website, the web server merely automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the call, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.
This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the 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 safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer in the context of a weighing of interests. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to our website.
Hosting services by a third party provider
In the context of processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh the interests of the parties involved. All data 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 its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the scope described here.
This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.
2. Data collection and use for contract processing
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 e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data for the processing of the contract or for the processing of your contact and you cannot send the order or contact without their indication. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide us with in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO for contract processing and processing your enquiries. After complete processing of the contract, 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 data beyond this which is legally permitted and about which we inform you in this declaration.
3. Data transfer
In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with 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 ordered goods.
4. Postal advertising and your right of objection
We reserve the right to use your first and last name as well as your postal address for our own advertising purposes, e.g. to send you interesting offers and information about our products by letter post. This serves to protect our legitimate interests, which outweigh the interests of our customers, in a promotional approach in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The advertising mailings will be processed on our behalf by a service provider to whom we pass on your data for this purpose.
You can object to the storage and use of your data for these purposes at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below.

6. online marketing
Google Ads Remarketing
Through Google Ads, we promote this site in Google search results and on third-party websites. To this end, when you visit our website, the so-called remarketing cookie is set by Google, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID and based on the pages you visit. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. After the discontinuation of the purpose and the end of the use of Google Ads Remarketing by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted.
No further processing of data beyond that will take place unless you have agreed with Google that your web and app browsing history will be linked by Google to your Google Account, and information from your Google Account will be used to personalize ads you see on the web. In this case, if you are logged in to Google while visiting our website, Google will use your information, along with Google Analytics data, to create and define target audience lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google temporarily links your personal data with Google Analytics data to form target groups.
Google Ads is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under the laws of Ireland, with registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (www.google.de).
Insofar as information is transferred to and stored on Google servers in the USA, the American company Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield.
