Data protection declaration

Unless otherwise indicated below, the provision of your personal data is neither prescribed legally or contractually nor required for the formation of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Lack of provision has no consequences. This applies only if there is no indication otherwise in the processing operations below.
“Personal data” include all information that relates to identified or identifiable individuals.

Server log files

You can visit our website without providing information about yourself.
Every time our website is accessed, usage data are sent to us or to our web host / IT service provider by your internet browser and stored in log files (so called server log files). These stored data include e.g. the name of the page visited, the data and time of the visit, the IP address, the data volume transmitted and the provider making the request.
Processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 lit. f General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from legitimate interest in guaranteeing fault-free operation of our website and improving our service.

Collection and processing if the contact form is used

If the contact form is used, we collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) only to the extent provided by you. The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the data transmitted.
Processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent.
You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the legality of the processing undertaken on the basis of the consent before revocation. We use your e-mail address only to process your enquiry. Your data are then deleted unless you have agreed to further processing and use.

Customer account

When a customer account is opened, we collect your personal data to the extent specified there. The data processing serves the purpose of improving your shopping experience and simplifying order handling.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the legality of the processing undertaken on the basis of the consent before revocation. Your customer account will then be deleted.

Collection, processing and disclosure of personal data in the case of orders

When an order is placed, we collect and process your personal data only if this is required in order to fulfil and process your order and to handle your enquiries. Provision of the data is required for formation of the contract. The result of lack of provision is that no contract can be formed.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and required for performance of a contract with you.
Your data are disclosed here for example to the shipping companies and drop shipping suppliers, payment service providers, order processing service suppliers and IT service providers chosen by you. In all cases, we comply strictly with the statutory requirements. The scope of the data transmission is limited to the minimum.

Use of the e-mail address for sending newsletters

Regardless of contract performance, we use your e-mail address exclusively for our own advertising purposes to send newsletters if you have explicitly agreed to this.
Processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing undertaken on the basis of the consent before revocation. Furthermore you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by notifying us. Your e-mail address will then be removed from the distribution list.
Your data are passed on to an e-mail marketing service provider here as part of the order processing. They are not passed on to other third parties.

Use of the e-mail address for sending direct advertising

We use your e-mail address, which we have received in the context of the sale of a product or service, for electronic transmission of advertising for our own products or services that are similar to those which you have already purchased from us, unless you have objected to this use.
Provision of the e-mail address is required for formation of the contract. The result of lack of provision is that no contract can be formed.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in direct advertising. You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by notifying us. The contact details to make the objection can be found in the publishing information. You can also use the link provided for this in the advertising e-mail. No costs are incurred for this other than the transmission costs at the basic rates.

Use of an external ERP system

For contract performance, we use an ERP system as part of the order processing. To this end, your personal data collected in the context of the order are transmitted to Zoho Corporation Pvt. Ltd. – Datacenter Europe, GDPR-compliant.

Use of PayPal

Use of Google Analytics

On our website we use the Google Analytics web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). The data processing serves the purpose of analysing this website and its visitors.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not amalgamated with any other data by Google.
Google Analytics uses cookies, which allow analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and saved there. Thus, IP anonymisation is activated.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there.
Your data may be transmitted to the USA. An adequacy decision of the European Commission exists for data transmissions to the USA.

Use of the remarketing or “similar target groups” function of Google Inc.

On our website we use the remarketing or “similar target groups” function of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). This function serves the purpose of analysing visitor behaviour and visitor interests.
Performance of analysis of the website use, which forms the basis for the creation of interest-related advertisements, uses Google cookies. Using the cookies, website visits and anonymised data about the use of the website are recorded. There is no storage of the personal data of website visitors. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google Display Network, you will be shown advertising overlays, which are very likely to consider the product and information areas accessed previously.
Your data here may also be transmitted to the USA. An adequacy decision of the European Commission exists for data transmissions to the USA.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in appealing to website visitors in a targeted way with advertising, by showing personalised, interest-related advertisements for visitors to the website of the provider if they visit other websites in the Google Display Network.

Use of Google Ads Conversion Tracking

On our website we use the online advertising programme “Google Ads” and, as part of this, Conversion Tracking (evaluation of visitor action). Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you click on an advertisement shown by Google, a cookie is filed on your computer for Conversion Tracking.
These cookies have limited validity, contain no personal data and therefore do not allow personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we are able to detect that you have clicked on the advertisement and been transferred to this site. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. There is therefore no possibility that cookies from the websites of Ads customers can be tracked.
The information collected with the aid of the conversion cookie serves the purpose of generating conversion statistics. Here, we find out the total number of users who have clicked on one of our advertisements and been transferred to a page with a Conversion Tracking tag. However, we receive no information from which users are personally identifiable.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising.
You have the right to object to this processing of personal data about you on the basis of art. 6 (1) f GDPR at any time for reasons arising from your specific situation.
Furthermore, you can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting corresponding technical settings in your browser software. We would point out, however, that you may be unable to make full use of all functions of this website in this case. You will then not be included in the Conversion Tracking statistics.

Moreover, you can deactivate advertising that is personalised to you in the settings for advertising at Google. Instructions can be found at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en.

Additionally, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third-party providers by opening the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the further information stated there in order to opt out.

Use of Facebook remarketing

On our website we use the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function of Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA; “Facebook”).
This function serves the purpose of appealing to visitors to the website in a targeted way with targeted, interest-related advertising on the social network Facebook.
To this end, the remarketing tag of Facebook has been implemented on the website. With this tag, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is created when the website is visited. This transmits to the Facebook servers which of our sites you have visited. Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. If you visit the social network Facebook, you are then shown personalised, interest-related Facebook Ads.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in the aforementioned purpose.
You have the right to object to this processing of personal data about you on the basis of art. 6 (1) f GDPR at any time for reasons arising from your specific situation.
To do this, you can deactivate the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function here.

Use of Google Maps

On our website we use the function for embedding maps of Google Maps from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
The function allows visual representation of graphical information and interactive maps. When pages are opened into which maps of Google Maps are integrated, Google also collects, processes and uses data from website visitors.
Your data may also be transmitted to the USA here. An adequacy decision of the European Commission exists for data transmissions to the USA.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in demand-based and targeted design of our website.

Further information about collection and use of the data by Google can be found in the privacy policy of Google at https://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html. In the privacy centre there, you also have the option to change your settings, so that you can manage and protect your data processed by Google.

Storage duration

After complete contract processing, the data are stored initially for the duration of the guarantee period then subject to the statutory retention periods and specifically those under fiscal and commercial law, and they are then deleted after expiry of the period unless you have agreed to further processing and use.
