1. General

1.1 What is personal data
Personal data is information that discloses or can disclose the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. Therefore, as far as possible, we refrain from collecting personal data.

1.2 Handling of personal data
Personal data is used exclusively to establish the contract, define its content, and implement or process the contractual relationship (Art. 6 (1 b) GDPR).

Beyond that, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent to do so (Art. 6 (1 a) GDPR) or if it is data whose processing is necessary for our legitimate interests and insofar as the balancing process shows that no overriding interests, fundamental rights or freedoms on your part are opposed (Art. 6 (1 f) GDRP).

We may use order processors to process your personal data but will not pass on the personal data to third parties beyond this as a matter of principle.

Only for the fulfillment of the contract, the data will be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary to deliver ordered goods. For the processing of payments, the payment data required for this will be passed on to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the commissioned and selected payment service provider.

The processing of your personal data takes place exclusively within the EU unless otherwise stated below.

1.3 Usage data
When visiting the website, general technical information is collected. This is the IP address used, time, duration of the visit, browser type and, if applicable, the page of origin. This usage data is registered in a log file for technical reasons and can be used and stored for the purpose of statistical evaluation of this website. A linkage of these usage data with your further personal data does not take place.

1.4 Duration of storage
We store your personal data after the termination of the purpose for which the data was collected only as long as this is required by law (especially tax law).

2. Your rights

2.1 Information
You can request information from us as to whether we are processing personal data about you. If so, you have a right to information about this personal data and the further information specified in Article 15 of the GDPR.

2.2 Right to rectification
You have the right to have incorrect personal data concerning you corrected and, in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, you may request the completion of incomplete personal data.

2.3 Right to erasure
You have the right to demand that we delete the personal data concerning you without undue delay. We are obliged to delete them without delay, in particular, if one of the following reasons applies:

• Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

• You revoke your consent on which the processing of your data was based, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

• Your data has been processed unlawfully.

The right to erasure does not exist insofar as your personal data is required for the assertion, exercise or defense of our legal claims.

2.4 Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data if

• You dispute the accuracy of the data, and we, therefore, verify the accuracy,

• the processing is unlawful, and you refuse the deletion and demand the restriction of use instead,

• we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,

• you have objected to the processing of your data, and it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

2.5 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that the processing is based on consent or a contract and the processing is carried out by us with the help of automated processes.

2.6 Right of withdrawal
Insofar as the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.

2.7 General and right of appeal
The exercise of your above rights is generally free of charge for you. In the event of complaints, you have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for us, the State Data Protection Officer, directly.

Privacy Policy:

These social media platforms may process personal data outside the EU; we refer in this respect to the above privacy statements of the social media platforms.

The respective social media platforms may create usage profiles from your usage behavior and the resulting interests and actions on your part and store cookies on your computer in which your usage behavior is stored.

Your usage profile can be used, for example, to place advertisements that presumably correspond to your interests.

6. Third-party services

6.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (« Google ») and collects and stores data via this web analytics service, from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. The usage profiles created in this way are used to evaluate visitor behavior in order to design and improve the offer presented on this website in line with requirements. Google Analytics uses « cookies », which are small text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. The usage profiles kept under a pseudonym will also not be merged with personal data about the user without the user’s express and separately declared consent. The use of cookies and data transmission to Google is only based on your consent (Art. 6 (1 a) GDPR). You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

6.2 Social media links and social sharing
We have our own social media pages with third-party providers that can be reached via links from this website.

Here, no data transfer takes place by calling up our website. To avoid unnecessary data transfer, we recommend logging out of the respective third-party provider before using a corresponding link, so that usage profiles cannot be created by the third-party provider simply by using the link.

These are automatically stored in your browser cache when you call up one of our pages in order to enable the desired display. If your browser does not support the web fonts used, a standard font of your computer may be used. Here, no interests of the users are affected which outweigh this technical necessity (Art. 6 (1 f) GDPR.
