We are pleased that you are interested in our online shop. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.
1. Access Data and Hosting
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time a website is called up, the web server 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, amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.
This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f GDPR, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which predominate within the framework of a weighing of interests. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site.
Third Party Hosting Services
As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides 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 for this purpose in the online shop as described below is processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained here.

2. Data collection and use for contract processing, contacting and opening a customer account
We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your order or when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail).

If you have given your consent to this in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter 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 completed or your customer account has been deleted, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the retention periods under tax and commercial law have expired, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use the data beyond that is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this statement. 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 using a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.

In order to fulfill the contract in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. b GDPR, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods ordered. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the ordering process, we pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service for processing payments. Some of the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must register with the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process.
