Data Protection Declaration


1. General

1.1 What is personal data?

Personal data is information that may disclose or divulge the identity of the user. We follow the principle of data avoidance, and as far as possible, we do not collect personal data.

1.2 Handling of personal data

Personal data is used exclusively to establish the contract, content, execution or development of the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I b GDPR ). In addition, personal data is only processed if we have obtained your consent (Art. 6 I a GDPR ). No data is transferred to third parties. The data may be forwarded to a shipping company responsible for delivery insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods to fulfil the contract. In order to process payments, the required payment data may be forwarded to the credit institution commissioned with payment and if applicable to the commissioned and chosen payment service provider. Your personal data is processed exclusively within the EU.

1.3 Usage data

When visiting the website, general technical information is collected. This includes the IP address used, the time and duration of the visit, browser type and if necessary the originating site. This usage data is registered in a log file for technical reasons and may be used and stored for the statistical purposes of this website. No link exists between this usage data and your other personal data.

1.4 Registration data

For the full use of our website’s functionality, registration is required. The registration data is collected on the basis of your respective input and used for the specific purposes indicated in accordance with your consent (Art. 6 I a GDPR ).

1.5 Period of storage

We store your personal data after the end of the purpose for which the data was collected only for the period required by law (in particular, tax law).

2. Your rights

2.1 Right to be informed

You have the right to request information about your personal data and other information mentioned in Art. 15 of the GDPR. You may ask us for information about how we process your personal data.

2.2 Right to rectification

In accordance with Art. 16 of the GDPR, you have the right to rectify inaccurate personal data or request that incomplete personal data be completed.

2.3 Right to erasure

You have the right to demand that any personal data concerning you be erased immediately. We are obliged to erase the data immediately, especially if any of the following reasons apply:

  • Your personal data is no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • You revoke your consent to the processing of your data and there is no other legal basis for processing.
  • Your data was processed unlawfully.

The right to delete does not exist if your personal data is required for the assertion, exercise or defence of our legal rights.

2.4 Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data if:

  • You contest the accuracy of the data and we therefore check the accuracy.
  • Processing is unlawful and you refuse deletion and instead demand the restriction of use.
  • We no longer need the data but you need it to assert, exercise or defend your legal rights.
  • You have lodged an objection to the processing of your data and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

2.5 Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain the personal data you provided us in a structured, common, machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person without our obstruction, provided that this transfer is based on either consent or a contract and performed by us using automated procedures.

2.6 Right to withdraw

If the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.

2.7 General rights and the right to complain

Exercising your above-mentioned rights is in principle free of charge. In the case of complaints, you have the right to directly contact a responsible supervisory authority or the state data protection officer.

5. Third party services

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google and operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), which collects and uses data to create usage profiles with pseudonyms. The usage profiles thus created are used to evaluate visitor behaviour for the purposes of designing and improving offers presented on this website as required. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, small text files that are stored on your computer which allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, if IP anonymization is enabled on this website within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement in the European Economic Area, your IP address will first be shortened by Google. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser under Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data, nor will the usage profiles managed under a pseudonym be merged with the user’s personal data without the explicit and separately declared consent of the user. You may prevent cookies from being stored via corresponding settings in your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to their fullest extent. Furthermore, you may prevent Google collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by using the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en) to download and install the available browser plugin.
Google privacy notices are available at http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. For more information about Terms of Use and Privacy, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html. We advise that Google Analytics has been extended with the “anonymizeIp” code to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking) on this website.

Facebook plugins

These websites use plugins from the social network www.facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The body responsible for processing the information collected by Facebook is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. If you visit our web pages via this plugin, a connection is established to the Facebook servers and the plugin is activated by directing your browser to the website. Information about which of our websites you have visited is transmitted to the Facebook servers. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g., clicking on the “Like” button, submitting a comment), this information will also be assigned to your Facebook account which you may only prevent by logging out before activating the plugin. For more information about the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and ways to protect your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Google +1

This site lets you post information worldwide using the Google+ +1 button operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). When a page is viewed using Google +1, data will be sent to Google via a link to Google. Google stores both the information that you + 1’d for content and the information about the page you viewed when you clicked +1. Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google’s services. The identity of your Google Profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you. The information you supply is used according to the Google data protection agreements via Google +1. Google may also publish brief statistics about the +1 activities of users and pass these on to other users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or associated websites. If you are logged into Google +1, direct assignment of the requested data to your Google +1 profile is possible. This assignment facility terminates by logging out of Google +1. The purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Google, including your rights in this regard and the possible settings to protect your privacy are set out in Google’s privacy notices: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1buttonhtml. If you do not want Google to assign the data collected via our website directly to your profile on Google+, you must log out of Google+ before visiting our website. You may also completely prevent Google plugins loading with add-ons for your browser, for example, with the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).

Youtube

This website and the integrated offers contain so-called embedded videos on YouTube. This provides the connection to YouTube and the videos stored on it. YouTube is an offer from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). For the purpose and scope of Google’s data collection and use, including your rights and preferences for protection as a YouTube customer, please refer to the YouTube Privacy Policy.
