In addition, the provider is obliged to inform all recipients to whom data has been disclosed by the provider of any correction or deletion of data or the restriction of processing that is carried out on the basis of Articles 16, 17 (1) and 18 DPA. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Irrespective of this, the user has a right to information about these recipients.

Likewise, according to Art. 21 DSGVO, users and data subjects have the right to object to the future processing of data concerning them, provided that the data is processed by the provider in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permitted.

III. Information on data processing

Your data processed during the use of our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any legal storage obligations and no other information is subsequently provided on individual processing procedures.

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted to us or to our web space provider by your Internet browser. These so-called server log files are used to record, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you have switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which our Internet presence is used.

This data is stored temporarily, but not together with other data about you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our Internet presence.

The data will be deleted after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidential purposes. Otherwise, the data is wholly or partially exempt from deletion until the final clarification of an incident.

Our web hosting provider processes all data in accordance with the requirements of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO).

Cookies

a) Session cookies/session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping basket function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies process data for the initiation or execution of contracts.

If the processing does not serve the purpose of contract initiation or contract processing, our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of the functionality of our Internet presence. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.

b) Third party cookies

Where appropriate, our website may also use cookies from partner companies with whom we cooperate for the purposes of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website.

For details on this, in particular on the purposes and legal basis for processing such third-party cookies, please refer to the following information.

c) Possibility of disposal

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by adjusting your Internet browser settings. You can also delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the Internet browser you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. With so-called Flash cookies, however, the processing cannot be prevented by the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings 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 also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

Should you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may, however, mean that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

Contract execution

The data transmitted by you to use our range of goods and/or services will be processed by us for the purpose of processing the contract and is required in this respect. Conclusion and processing of the contract are not possible without provision of your data.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

We delete the data with complete contract implementation, but must observe the tax and commercial law retention periods.

Within the scope of contract processing, we will pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of goods or to the financial service provider, insofar as the transfer is necessary for the delivery of goods or for payment purposes.

The legal basis for the transfer of data is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Newsletter

If you register for our free newsletter, the data requested from you for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and - optionally - your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time we save the IP address of the internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. In the course of the further registration process, we will obtain your consent to send you the newsletter, describe the content in detail and refer you to this data protection declaration. We use the data collected in the process exclusively for sending the newsletter - they are therefore in particular not passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in every newsletter.

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Contact enquiries / Contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your enquiry - without the provision of this data we cannot answer your enquiry or can only answer it in a limited way.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted, provided that your inquiry has been finally answered and the deletion does not conflict with any legal storage obligations, as for example in the case of a possible subsequent contract processing.

Possibility for comments

User contributions, comments and ratings

We offer you to publish questions, answers, opinions or evaluations, hereinafter only "contributions", on our Internet pages. If you make use of this offer, we will process and publish your contribution, the date and time of submission and the pseudonym you may use.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

In addition, we also process your IP and e-mail address. The IP address is processed because we have a legitimate interest in initiating or supporting further steps if your contribution infringes the rights of third parties and/or is otherwise illegal.

In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defence, if necessary.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function

We use Google Analytics in our Internet presence. This is a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google" only.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU will also be observed when processing data in the USA.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyse the usage behaviour of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our Internet presence.

IP anonymisation

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, place, time or frequency of the visit to our website, is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymisation function. With this function Google shortens the IP address already within the EU or EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data can also be used to provide further services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it does not link your IP address to other data. In addition, Google maintains a database under

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

will provide you with further information on data protection law, for example on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

Furthermore Google offers under

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

a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with the most common Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information on visits to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services. Whether and which other web analysis services are used by us is of course also explained in this data protection declaration.

Disable Google Analytics

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your information on future visits to this site:

Google Analytics dealtivieren

More information on the handling of user data at Google Analytics can be found in the privacy policy of Google: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Contract data processing

We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Use of Instagram

We use the Instagram service on our website. Instagram is a service of Instagram Inc. Through the integrated "Insta" button on our site, Instagram receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can associate this visit to our site with your Instagram account and link the data to it. The data transmitted by clicking the "Insta" button is stored by Instagram. The purpose and scope of data collection, its processing and use, and your rights and privacy preferences are explained in the Instagram Privacy Policy, which is available at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 abrufen können.

To prevent Instagram from associating your visit to our site with your Instagram account, you must log out of your Instagram account before visiting our site.

Data sharing for contract fulfillment

If you use the payment method "credit card" of the payment service provider Stripe, the payment will be processed by the following payment service provider:

Stripe Payments Europe Ltd

During the ordering process, additional information about your order (name, address, credit card number, invoice amount, currency and transaction number) as well as data related to the order (product, number of items, taxes, total amount, etc.) is transmitted. Your data will only be passed on for the purpose of payment processing with the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd. You will find detailed information on Stripe's data protection policy under the following link: https://stripe.com/de/privacy.

"Facebook" Social Plug-in

In our Internet presence we use the plug-in of the social network Facebook. Facebook is an internet service of facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. In the EU, this service is in turn operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, hereinafter both referred to as "Facebook" only.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active

guarantees Facebook that the data protection regulations of the EU will also be observed when processing data in the USA.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence.

Further information about the possible plug-ins and their respective functions can be found on Facebook at

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins

ready for you.

If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our website that you visit, your Internet browser will download a representation of the plug-in from the Facebook servers in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Facebook to process your IP address. In addition, however, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.

If you are logged in to Facebook while visiting one of our Internet pages equipped with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in on your specific visit will be recognized by Facebook. Facebook may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. If, for example, you use the so-called "Like" button on Facebook, this information is stored in your Facebook user account and, if necessary, published via the Facebook platform. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or prevent the loading of the Facebook plug-in from being blocked by using an add-on for your Internet browser.

Facebook keeps further information about the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in the sections on

https://www.facebook.com/policy.php

retrievable data protection information.
