Thank you for visiting our online shop. Protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find extensive information about how we handle your data.

1. Access data and hosting

You may visit our website without revealing any personal information. With every visit on the website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request.

These access data are analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit f GDPR the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit on our website.

Third-party hosting services
Data are also processed by a third-party provider that we have engaged to render hosting and website presentation services on our behalf. This provider processes on its servers all data that are collected in the manner specified below when you visit our website or fill in forms made available for this purpose in our online shop. Data are processed on other servers only in the scope described herein.

This service provider is based in an EU or EEA member state.

2. Data collection and use for processing the contract 

We collect personal data that you voluntarily submit to us when you place an order or contact us (e.g. via contact form or by email). Mandatory fields are marked as such because we absolutely need those data to perform the contract or process your contact request and you would otherwise not be able to complete your order or send the contact request. It is evident in each input form what data are collected. We use the data that you disclose to us to perform the contract and process your enquiries according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b) GDPR. As far as you have given your consent according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a) GDPR by creating Your customer account, we use Your data for the purpose of opening the customer account. Upon completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, any further processing of your data will be restricted, and your data will be deleted upon expiry of the retention period applicable under relevant regulations, unless you expressly consent to the further use of your data or we reserve the right to further use your personal data in the scope and manner permitted by law, of which we inform you in this notice. Your customer account can be deleted at any time. For this purpose you can either send a message to the contact option specified below or use the relevant function available in the customer account.

3. Transfer of data

We disclose your data to the shipping company in the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b GDPR. Depending on the payment service provider you have selected during the ordering process, we disclose the payment details collected for order processing purposes to the bank commissioned to handle the payment and, as the case may be, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. Some of those data are collected by the selected payment service providers themselves if you open an account with them. In such a case, during the ordering process, you must register with your payment service provider using your access data. In this respect, the privacy notice of the relevant payment service provider applies.

In order to process orders and contracts we also use an external merchandise management system. The data transfer or the data processing that takes place in this respect is based on order processing.

The same applies to the transfer of data to our manufacturers or wholesalers where they take over the dispatch for us (drop shipping).

We use the services of payment providers and logistics providers which have their registered offices outside the EU. Personal data are disclosed to these companies only to the extent required to perform the contract.

Data transfer to debt collection companies
In order to fulfil the contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR, we forward your data to an authorised debt collection agency if our payment claim has not been settled despite a previous reminder. In this case, the claim will be collected directly by the collection agency. In addition, the transfer of data serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in an effective assertion or enforcement of our payment claim in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing interests.
