Data Protection Declaration
We take the protection of your personal information very seriously and strictly adhere to the rules of data protection laws. Personal data is collected on this website only to the extent technically necessary. In no case will the data collected be sold or otherwise disclosed to third parties.
The following explanation gives you an overview of how we guarantee this protection and what kind of data is collected for which purpose.
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 ).

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:

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

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

- 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.

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

5. Third party services
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.
