    Privacy Policy

    Personal data (usually referred to just as "data" below) will only be processed by us to the extent necessary and for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly website, including its contents, and the services offered there.

    Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the "GDPR"), "processing" refers to any operation or set of operations such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, or otherwise making available, alignment, or combination, restriction, erasure, or destruction performed on personal data, whether by automated means or not.

    The following privacy policy is intended to inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration, and legal basis for the processing of such data either under our own control or in conjunction with others. We also inform you below about the third-party components we use to optimize our website and improve the user experience which may result in said third parties also processing data they collect and control.

    Our privacy policy is structured as follows:

    I. Information about us as controllers of your data
    II. The rights of users and data subjects
    III. Information about the data processing

    I. Information about us as controllers of your data

    II. The rights of users and data subjects

    With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

    • to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being processed, information about the data being processed, further information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
    • to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
    • to the immediate deletion of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alternatively, if further processing is necessary as stipulated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art. 18 GDPR;
    • to receive copies of the data concerning them and/or provided by them and to have the same transmitted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
    • to file complaints with the supervisory authority if they believe that data concerning them is being processed by the controller in breach of data protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

    In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless, users have a right to information about these recipients.

    Likewise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the controller's future processing of their data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible.

    III. Information about the data processing

    Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, provided the deletion of the same is not in breach of any statutory storage obligations or unless otherwise stipulated below.

    Server data

    For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider will be collected, especially to ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files record the type and version of your browser, operating system, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the webpages on our site visited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you visited our site.

    The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.

    The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality, and security of our website.

    The data will be deleted within no more than seven days, unless continued storage is required for evidentiary purposes. In which case, all or part of the data will be excluded from deletion until the investigation of the relevant incident is finally resolved.

    Cookies
    a) Session cookies

    We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies stored on your computer by your browser. These cookies process certain specific information about you, such as your browser, location data, or IP address.  

    This processing makes our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure, allowing us, for example, to display our website in different languages or to offer a shopping cart function.

    The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies are used to collect data to initiate or process contractual relationships.

    If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

    When you close your browser, these session cookies are deleted.

    b) Third-party cookies

    If necessary, our website may also use cookies from companies with whom we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analyzing, or improving the features of our website.

    Please refer to the following information for details, in particular for the legal basis and purpose of such third-party collection and processing of data collected through cookies.

    c) Disabling cookies

    You can refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings on your browser. Likewise, you can use the browser to delete cookies that have already been stored. However, the steps and measures required vary, depending on the browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your browser or contact its maker for support. Browser settings cannot prevent so-called flash cookies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the setting 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 use the help function or consult the documentation for your Flash player or contact its maker for support.

    If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, not all of the functions on our site may be fully usable.

    Order processing

    The data you submit when ordering goods and/or services from us will have to be processed in order to fulfill your order. Please note that orders cannot be processed without providing this data.

    The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

    After your order has been completed, your personal data will be deleted, but only after the retention periods required by tax and commercial law.

    In order to process your order, we will share your data with the shipping company responsible for delivery to the extent required to deliver your order and/or with the payment service provider to the extent required to process your payment.

    The legal basis for the transfer of this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    Customer account/registration

    If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will use the data you entered during registration (e.g. your name, your address, or your email address) exclusively for services leading up to your potential placement of an order or entering some other contractual relationship with us, to fulfill such orders or contracts, and to provide customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders or to be able to offer you a wishlist function). We also store your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This data will not be transferred to third parties.

    During the registration process, your consent will be obtained for this processing of your data, with reference made to this privacy policy. The data collected by us will be used exclusively to provide your customer account. 

    If you give your consent to this processing, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR is the legal basis for this processing.

    If the opening of the customer account is also intended to lead to the initiation of a contractual relationship with us or to fulfill an existing contract with us, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

    You may revoke your prior consent to the processing of your personal data at any time under Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR with future effect. All you have to do is inform us that you are revoking your consent.

    The data previously collected will then be deleted as soon as processing is no longer necessary. However, we must observe any retention periods required under tax and commercial law.

    Credit checks and scores

    If you accept any offer we make for you to pay for goods or services on account, we reserve the right to run a credit check with a credit bureau (such as Creditreform, Schufa, Bürgel, or infoscore) to obtain credit information determined on the basis of mathematical-statistical methods. For this purpose, any data you provide that is relevant to the contract, such as your name and address, will be forwarded to the credit bureau. We then use the information obtained about the statistical probability of default to decide whether we will offer you payment on account.

    The legal basis for such processing is our legitimate interest to avoid default on our account per Art. 6 Para.1 lit. f) GDPR.

    Newsletter

    If you register for our free newsletter, the data requested from you for this purpose, i.e. your email address and, optionally, your name and address, will be sent to us. We also store the IP address of your computer and the date and time of your registration. During the registration process, we will obtain your consent to receive this newsletter and the type of content it will offer, with reference made to this privacy policy. The data collected will be used exclusively to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

    The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

    You may revoke your prior consent to receive this newsletter under Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR with future effect. All you have to do is inform us that you are revoking your consent or click on the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter.

    Contact

    If you contact us via email or the contact form, the data you provide will be used for the purpose of processing your request. We must have this data in order to process and answer your inquiry; otherwise we will not be able to answer it in full or at all.

    The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

    Your data will be deleted once we have fully answered your inquiry and there is no further legal obligation to store your data, such as if an order or contract resulted therefrom.

    Social media links via graphics

    We also integrate the following social media sites into our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective site. The use of these graphics stored on our own servers prevents the automatic connection to the servers of these networks for their display. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic will you be forwarded to the service of the respective social network.

    Once you click, that network may record information about you and your visit to our site. It cannot be ruled out that such data will be processed in the United States.

    Initially, this data includes such things as your IP address, the date and time of your visit, and the page visited. If you are logged into your user account on that network, however, the network operator might assign the information collected about your visit to our site to your personal account. If you interact by clicking Like, Share, etc., this information can be stored your personal user account and possibly posted on the respective network. To prevent this, you need to log out of your social media account before clicking on the graphic. The various social media networks also offer settings that you can configure accordingly.

    The following social networks are integrated into our site by linked graphics:

    Klarna „CHECK-OUT“

    To process orders through our online shop, we use the payment service of Klarna Bank AB, Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden, hereinafter referred to as "Klarna", on our website.

    For this purpose, we have integrated Klarna's check-out into the final order page of our online shop.

    The legal basis is the fulfilment of the contract according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b.)  EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition, we have a legitimate interest in offering effective and secure payment options, so that another legal basis ensues from Art. 6 para. 1 lit f.) GDPR. 

    By integrating Klarna, your internet browser loads the check-out page from a Klarna server. This means that the operating system you are using, type and version of your Internet browser, website from which the check-out has been requested, date and time of the call and the IP address are sent to Klarna - even without your interaction with the check-out page.

    As soon as you complete the order in our online shop, the data you have entered in the input fields of the check-out page will be processed by Klarna at your own responsibility in order to process the payment.

    With the offered payment methods "PayPal" and "Advance Payment", processing without your further consent is limited to the transfer of the payment data to us or PayPal.

    With the offered payment methods of "Purchase on Account", "Hire Purchase", "Credit Card", "Direct Debit" or "Immediate Payment", the following personal data is processed by Klarna for the purpose of payment processing and for identity and credit checking:

    - Contact information such as names, addresses, date of birth, gender, email address, telephone number, mobile phone number, IP address, etc.

    - Information on the processing of the order, such as product type, product number, price, etc.

    - Payment information, such as debit and credit card data (card number, expiry date and CCV code), invoice data, account number, etc.

    If you choose the payment method "Purchase on Account" or "Hire Purchase", Klarna collects and uses personal data and information about your previous payment behaviour to decide whether you will be granted the desired payment method. In addition, probability values for your future payment behaviour (so-called scoring) are used. Scoring is calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical and statistical methods.

    At https://cdn.klarna.com/1.0/shared/content/policy/data/de_de/data_protection.pdf Klarna provides further information on the processing described above as well as the applicable data protection regulations.

    Use of PayPal as a payment method

    If you decide to pay with the online payment service provider PayPal during your order process, your contact details will be transmitted to PayPal as part of the order triggered in this way. PayPal is an offer of PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg. PayPal assumes the function of an online payment service provider as well as a trustee and offers buyer protection services.

    The personal data transmitted to PayPal are mostly first name, last name, address, telephone number, IP address, e-mail address, or other data required for order processing, as well as data related to the order, such as number of items, item number, invoice amount and taxes in percent, billing information, etc..

    This transmission is necessary to process your order with the payment method you have selected, in particular to confirm your identity, to administer your payment and the customer relationship.

    However, please note: Personal data may also be transferred by PayPal to service providers, subcontractors or other affiliated companies to the extent necessary to fulfill the contractual obligations arising from your order or to process the personal data on your behalf.

    Depending on the payment method selected via PayPal, e.g. invoice or direct debit, the personal data transmitted to PayPal will be transmitted by PayPal to credit agencies. This transmission serves to check your identity and creditworthiness in relation to the order you have placed. You can find out which credit agencies are involved and which data is generally collected, processed, stored and passed on by PayPal in the PayPal data protection declaration at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
