Thank you for your interest in our online shop. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following we will inform you in detail about the handling of your data.
1. Access data and hosting
You can visit our website without giving any personal information. Each time a website is called up, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.
These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your site visit.

As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. All data that is collected as part of the use of this website or in the forms provided in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained 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, establishing contact and opening a customer account
We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your order or when you contact us (e.g. using the contact form or email). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process the contract or to process your contact and you cannot send the order or contact without specifying them. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you have provided in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR to process contracts and to process your inquiries.
Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 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 the contract has been fully processed or your customer account has been deleted, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the tax and commercial retention periods have expired, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond that is permitted by law and about which we will inform you in this declaration.

Depending on which payment service provider you select in the ordering process, we will pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institute commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies in this respect.
