Per­so­nal data (usual­ly refer­red to just as “data” below) will only be pro­ces­sed by us to the extent neces­sa­ry and for the pur­pose of pro­vi­ding a func­tio­nal and user-friend­ly web­site, inclu­ding its contents, and the ser­vices offe­red there.

Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Regu­la­tion (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­tion (herei­naf­ter refer­red to as the “GDPR”), “pro­ces­sing” refers to any ope­ra­tion or set of ope­ra­tions such as col­lec­tion, recor­ding, orga­ni­za­tion, struc­tu­ring, sto­rage, adap­ta­tion, alte­ra­tion, retrie­val, consul­ta­tion, use, dis­clo­sure by trans­mis­sion, dis­se­mi­na­tion, or other­wise making avai­lable, ali­gn­ment, or com­bi­na­tion, res­tric­tion, era­sure, or des­truc­tion per­for­med on per­so­nal data, whe­ther by auto­ma­ted means or not.

The fol­lo­wing pri­va­cy poli­cy is inten­ded to inform you in par­ti­cu­lar about the type, scope, pur­pose, dura­tion, and legal basis for the pro­ces­sing of such data either under our own control or in conjunc­tion with others. We also inform you below about the third-par­ty com­po­nents we use to opti­mize our web­site and improve the user expe­rience which may result in said third par­ties also pro­ces­sing data they col­lect and control.

Our pri­va­cy poli­cy is struc­tu­red as follows:

I. Infor­ma­tion about us as control­lers of your data
II. The rights of users and data sub­jects
III. Infor­ma­tion about the data processing

I. Information about us as controllers of your data

The par­ty res­pon­sible for this web­site (the “control­ler”) for pur­poses of data pro­tec­tion law is:

Ger­ma­ny

II. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data pro­ces­sing to be des­cri­bed in more detail below, users and data sub­jects have the right to confir­ma­tion of whe­ther data concer­ning them is being pro­ces­sed, infor­ma­tion about the data being pro­ces­sed, fur­ther infor­ma­tion about the nature of the data pro­ces­sing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
to cor­rect or com­plete incor­rect or incom­plete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR); to the imme­diate dele­tion of data concer­ning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alter­na­ti­ve­ly, if fur­ther pro­ces­sing is neces­sa­ry as sti­pu­la­ted in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to res­trict said pro­ces­sing per Art. 18 GDPR;
to receive copies of the data concer­ning them and/or pro­vi­ded by them and to have the same trans­mit­ted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
to file com­plaints with the super­vi­so­ry autho­ri­ty if they believe that data concer­ning them is being pro­ces­sed by the control­ler in breach of data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­sions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addi­tion, the control­ler is obli­ged to inform all reci­pients to whom it dis­closes data of any such cor­rec­tions, dele­tions, or res­tric­tions pla­ced on pro­ces­sing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. Howe­ver, this obli­ga­tion does not apply if such noti­fi­ca­tion is impos­sible or involves a dis­pro­por­tio­nate effort. Never­the­less, users have a right to infor­ma­tion about these recipients.

Like­wise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data sub­jects have the right to object to the control­ler’s future pro­ces­sing of their data pur­suant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In par­ti­cu­lar, an objec­tion to data pro­ces­sing for the pur­pose of direct adver­ti­sing is permissible.

III. Information about the data processing

Your data pro­ces­sed when using our web­site will be dele­ted or blo­cked as soon as the pur­pose for its sto­rage ceases to apply, pro­vi­ded the dele­tion of the same is not in breach of any sta­tu­to­ry sto­rage obli­ga­tions or unless other­wise sti­pu­la­ted below.

Cookies
a) Ses­sion cookies

We use cookies on our web­site. Cookies are small text files or other sto­rage tech­no­lo­gies sto­red on your com­pu­ter by your brow­ser. These cookies pro­cess cer­tain spe­ci­fic infor­ma­tion about you, such as your brow­ser, loca­tion data, or IP address.

This pro­ces­sing makes our web­site more user-friend­ly, effi­cient, and secure, allo­wing us, for example, to dis­play our web­site in dif­ferent lan­guages or to offer a shop­ping cart function.

The legal basis for such pro­ces­sing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, inso­far as these cookies are used to col­lect data to ini­tiate or pro­cess contrac­tual relationships.

If the pro­ces­sing does not serve to ini­tiate or pro­cess a contract, our legi­ti­mate inter­est lies in impro­ving the func­tio­na­li­ty of our web­site. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

When you close your brow­ser, these ses­sion cookies are dele­ted.
b) Third-par­ty cookies

If neces­sa­ry, our web­site may also use cookies from com­pa­nies with whom we coope­rate for the pur­pose of adver­ti­sing, ana­ly­zing, or impro­ving the fea­tures of our website.

Please refer to the fol­lo­wing infor­ma­tion for details, in par­ti­cu­lar for the legal basis and pur­pose of such third-par­ty col­lec­tion and pro­ces­sing of data col­lec­ted through cookies.
c) Disa­bling cookies

You can refuse the use of cookies by chan­ging the set­tings on your brow­ser. Like­wise, you can use the brow­ser to delete cookies that have alrea­dy been sto­red. Howe­ver, the steps and mea­sures requi­red vary, depen­ding on the brow­ser you use. If you have any ques­tions, please use the help func­tion or consult the docu­men­ta­tion for your brow­ser or contact its maker for sup­port. Brow­ser set­tings can­not prevent so-cal­led flash cookies from being set. Ins­tead, you will need to change the set­ting of your Flash player. The steps and mea­sures requi­red for this also depend on the Flash player you are using. If you have any ques­tions, please use the help func­tion or consult the docu­men­ta­tion for your Flash player or contact its maker for support.

If you prevent or res­trict the ins­tal­la­tion of cookies, not all of the func­tions on our site may be ful­ly usable.

Order pro­ces­sing

The data you sub­mit when orde­ring goods and/or ser­vices from us will have to be pro­ces­sed in order to ful­fill your order. Please note that orders can­not be pro­ces­sed without pro­vi­ding this data.

The legal basis for this pro­ces­sing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

After your order has been com­ple­ted, your per­so­nal data will be dele­ted, but only after the reten­tion per­iods requi­red by tax and com­mer­cial law.

In order to pro­cess your order, we will share your data with the ship­ping com­pa­ny res­pon­sible for deli­ve­ry to the extent requi­red to deli­ver your order and/or with the pay­ment ser­vice pro­vi­der to the extent requi­red to pro­cess your pay­ment.
The legal basis for the trans­fer of this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Cus­to­mer account/registration

If you create a cus­to­mer account with us via our web­site, we will use the data you ente­red during regis­tra­tion (e.g. your name, your address, or your email address) exclu­si­ve­ly for ser­vices lea­ding up to your poten­tial pla­ce­ment of an order or ente­ring some other contrac­tual rela­tion­ship with us, to ful­fill such orders or contracts, and to pro­vide cus­to­mer care (e.g. to pro­vide you with an over­view of your pre­vious orders or to be able to offer you a wish­list func­tion). We also store your IP address and the date and time of your regis­tra­tion. This data will not be trans­fer­red to third parties.

During the regis­tra­tion pro­cess, your consent will be obtai­ned for this pro­ces­sing of your data, with refe­rence made to this pri­va­cy poli­cy. The data col­lec­ted by us will be used exclu­si­ve­ly to pro­vide your cus­to­mer account.

If you give your consent to this pro­ces­sing, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR is the legal basis for this processing.

If the ope­ning of the cus­to­mer account is also inten­ded to lead to the ini­tia­tion of a contrac­tual rela­tion­ship with us or to ful­fill an exis­ting contract with us, the legal basis for this pro­ces­sing is also Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

You may revoke your prior consent to the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data at any time under Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR with future effect. All you have to do is inform us that you are revo­king your consent.

The data pre­vious­ly col­lec­ted will then be dele­ted as soon as pro­ces­sing is no lon­ger neces­sa­ry. Howe­ver, we must observe any reten­tion per­iods requi­red under tax and com­mer­cial law.

During the regis­tra­tion pro­cess, we will obtain your consent to receive this news­let­ter and the type of content it will offer, with refe­rence made to this pri­va­cy poli­cy. The data col­lec­ted will be used exclu­si­ve­ly to send the news­let­ter and will not be pas­sed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

Google Ana­ly­tics

We use Google Ana­ly­tics on our web­site. This is a web ana­ly­tics ser­vice pro­vi­ded by Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 (herei­naf­ter: Google).

Google gua­ran­tees that it will fol­low the EU’s data pro­tec­tion regu­la­tions when pro­ces­sing data in the Uni­ted States.

The Google Ana­ly­tics ser­vice is used to ana­lyze how our web­site is used. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legi­ti­mate inter­est lies in the ana­ly­sis, opti­mi­za­tion, and eco­no­mic ope­ra­tion of our site.

Usage and user-rela­ted infor­ma­tion, such as IP address, place, time, or fre­quen­cy of your visits to our web­site will be trans­mit­ted to a Google ser­ver in the Uni­ted States and sto­red there. Howe­ver, we use Google Ana­ly­tics with the so-cal­led ano­ny­mi­za­tion func­tion, whe­re­by Google trun­cates the IP address within the EU or the EEA before it is trans­mit­ted to the US.

The data col­lec­ted in this way is in turn used by Google to pro­vide us with an eva­lua­tion of visits to our web­site and what visi­tors do once there. This data can also be used to pro­vide other ser­vices rela­ted to the use of our web­site and of the inter­net in general.

Google states that it will not connect your IP address to other data. In addi­tion, Google pro­vides fur­ther infor­ma­tion with regard to its data pro­tec­tion prac­tices at

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners,

inclu­ding options you can exer­cise to prevent such use of your data.

In addi­tion, Google offers an opt-out add-on at

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

in addi­tion with fur­ther infor­ma­tion. This add-on can be ins­tal­led on the most popu­lar brow­sers and offers you fur­ther control over the data that Google col­lects when you visit our web­site. The add-on informs Google Ana­ly­tics’ JavaS­cript (ga.js) that no infor­ma­tion about the web­site visit should be trans­mit­ted to Google Ana­ly­tics. Howe­ver, this does not prevent infor­ma­tion from being trans­mit­ted to us or to other web ana­ly­tics ser­vices we may use as detai­led herein.
