Thank you for your interest in our online shop. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

1. Access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever a website is called up, the web server merely 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.

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 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO (GDPR), this serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh the interests of the parties concerned. All access data will be deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your site visit.

Hosting services by a third-party provider
In the context of processing on our behalf (Art. 28 DSGVO), a third-party provider provides us with the services for hosting your personal data including our online shop and for displaying the website.
This third party is located outside a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area. However, we have concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with the third-party provider to ensure an adequate level of data protection in the third country. You can request a copy of these standard contractual clauses (with the blackening of confidential company and business secrets) at the contact details given above or from our data protection officer.
In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO, the commissioning of the third-party provider serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in the correct presentation and efficient hosting of our offer when weighing up the interests.
All data collected in the context of the use of this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on the servers of a subcontractor of the third-party provider with its registered office within the EU. The data itself is stored on servers in Germany. Processing on other servers does not take place unless otherwise expressly stated elsewhere in this privacy information.

2. Collection and use of data for contract processing and creation of 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 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 the purpose of processing contracts and handling your enquiries.
Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account. The processing of your personal data within the customer account is done for the following purposes: With the customer account you can, among other things, manage different shipping addresses, track the shipment of your order, retrieve your order history, create reviews for products, create wish lists and receive exclusive offers.
After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the expiry of the tax and commercial law retention periods (usually 10 years), 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 declaration. 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 by using a function in the customer account provided for this purpose.

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. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the order process, we will pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the bank commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service for the processing of payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you open an account there. In this case, you must log on to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this respect, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.
The same applies to the transfer of data to our manufacturers or wholesalers in cases where they undertake the dispatch for us (drop shipment).


Transfer of data to shipping service providers
If you have given us your express permission to do so during or after your order, we will transfer your e-mail address and telephone number to the selected shipping service provider in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO, so that they can contact you before delivery for the purpose of announcing or coordinating delivery.

The consent can be revoked at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below or directly to the shipping service provider at the contact address listed below. After revocation, we will delete the data you have provided for this purpose, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data in a manner that goes beyond that which is legally permitted and about which we inform you in this declaration.

5. Integration of the Trusted Shop Trustbadge
For the display of our Trusted Shops seal of approval and the collected ratings as well as the offer of Trusted Shops products for buyers after an order, the Trusted Shops trust badge is integrated on this website.
This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which outweigh the interests of the parties concerned, in the optimal marketing of our products and services in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Köln, Germany.
When the trust badge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains e.g. 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 not evaluated and is automatically overwritten at the latest seven days after the end of your page visit.
Other personal data is only transferred to Trusted Shops if you have consented to this, decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or have already registered for use. In this case the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.
