Privacy at a glance

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us.

Information on privacy

We take privacy seriously

Protecting your privacy during the processing of personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically save the IP address of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages on our website that you visit, and the date and duration of your visit. This information is necessary for the technical functionality of the webpages and the secure operation of the server. A personalised evaluation of this data is not carried out.

If you send us information via the contact form, this data will be stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will be used by us exclusively to process your request. Your data will be handled in a strictly confidential manner. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

Personal data

Personal data are data about yourself. This includes your name, your address and your Email address. You are not obligated to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as further information to be able to offer you the service you require.

The same applies if we supply you with informative material on request or if we answer your enquiries. We will always notify you in such cases. Otherwise, we only save data that you have automatically or voluntarily submitted to us.

When you use our services, we normally only collect data that are necessary to be able to offer you our services. We may ask you for further information on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal information, we do so in order to provide you with our services or to pursue our commercial interests.

Automatically saved data

Server log files

Server log files

Website providers automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.

These are:

  • Data and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • The web browser and operating system used
  • Complete IP address of the computer making the request
  • Amount of data transmitted


This data is not combined with other data sources. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. This data is stored by us for a brief period for security reasons, especially with regard to the prevention of attempts to attack our web server. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions regarding individuals based on this data. The data is anonymised at the domain level after seven days by truncating the IP address so it will no longer be possible to assign the data to individual users. Additionally, the anonymised data is processed for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other datasets or passed on to third parties, even in extracts. The number of page views is displayed only within the framework of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report.

Cookies

Cookies

When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and are stored on your hard drive. Only the Internet protocol address is stored for this – no personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, allows you to be automatically recognised the next time you visit our website, which makes your visit easier. The legal basis for the use of cookies is our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(f) DSGVO.

Of course, you can also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognised the next time you visit, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to “refuse cookies”. The respective procedure can be found in the settings of your browser. If you reject the use of cookies, however, there may be restrictions on the use of some areas of our website.

Google

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not collect personal data. The tool activates other tags, which may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have made a deactivation at the domain or cookie level, it will continue to persist for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. You can find Google’s privacy policy for this tool at:https://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

Google Analytics with anonymisation functionality

On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, which are text files that are saved on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, location and frequency of your visits to the website, including IP address, are transmitted to Google in the United States and saved there.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with the “_gat._anonymizeIp” tag. Through this, your IP address will already be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other member states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your usage of our website, compiling reports on website activities for us, and carrying out further services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also pass this information on to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google will not, according to its own account, associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the corresponding settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website.

Google also offers an opt-out add-on for the most popular browsers, which gives you more control over what information Google collects about the websites you visit. The add-on indicates to the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For further information on installing the browser Add-On, please click on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

If you visit our website from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you will need to click this link instead to prevent Google Analytics from tracking you within this site in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser Add-On. By clicking the link, an opt-out cookie is set in your browser and is valid only for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.

If you’ve agreed that Google may link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and use information from your Google Account to personalise ads, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create target audience lists for remarketing purposes across multiple devices. Google Analytics will first collect your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google account (i.e. personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily associate your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimise our target audiences.

If you do not agree, you can turn it off via the corresponding settings in the “My Account” section of your Google Account.

Google Doubleclick

Doubleclick by Google is a service by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Doubleclick by Google uses cookies to show you advertisements that are relevant to you. A pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser in order to check which ads were displayed in your browser and which ads were accessed.

Google will transfer data to third parties only on the basis of statutory requirements or as part of contract data processing. Under no circumstances will Google combine your data with other data collected by Google.

By using our website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google and the previously mentioned manner of data processing and the stated purpose. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the corresponding settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our webpages. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookies, as well as the data related to your use of the webpages, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link under the item DoubleClick deactivation extension. Alternatively, you can disable Doubleclick cookies with this opt-out.

More information

Customer account

Customer account

We set up a password-protected direct-access to the user data (customer account) stored by us for each customer who registers accordingly. Here you can view data about your completed, open and recently shipped orders and manage your address information, bank details and the newsletter. You undertake to treat the personal access-data confidentially and not to make them accessible to unauthorised third parties. We cannot assume any liability for misused passwords, unless we are responsible for the misuse.

We would like to make your visit to our website as pleasant as possible with the function “Stay logged in”. This function allows you to use our services without having to log in again each time. For security reasons, however, you will be asked to enter your password again if, for example, you need to change your personal data or you wish to place an order. We recommend that you do not use this feature if the computer is used by multiple users. We would like to point out that the “Stay logged in" function is not available if you use a setting that automatically deletes stored cookies after each session.

Newsletter

Newsletter

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending newsletters, i.e., we will send you a newsletter by Email only if you have expressly confirmed to us beforehand that we should activate the newsletter service. We will then send you a notification Email and ask you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter by clicking on a link contained in that Email. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we will store your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses your Email address to register you without your knowledge or your authorisation to receive the newsletter. Should you no longer wish to receive newsletters from us at a later date, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic fees. 

Security

Security

We have taken technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the applicable privacy laws.

Whenever we collect and process personal information, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security precautions are subject to a continuous improvement process and our privacy policies are constantly being revised. Please make sure that you have the latest version.

Access

Right of access:

You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.

Rectification

Right to rectification:

If we process your data that is incomplete or inaccurate, you may request that we correct or supplement it at any time.

Erasure

Right to erasure:

You can demand that we delete your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your justifiable protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent an immediate erasure, e.g., in the case of legally stipulated retention obligations.

Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as there is no contractual or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.

Processing

Right to restrict processing:

You can ask us to restrict the processing of your data if

  • you dispute the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data,
  • the processing of the data is unlawful, but you decline to delete it and instead demand a restriction on the use of the data,
  • we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to file or defend legal claims, or
  • you have objected to the processing of the data.

Data portability

Right to data portability:

You may request that we provide you with the information you have provided to us in a structured, standard and computer-readable format and that you may provide that information to another representative without interference from us, provided that we process this data on the basis of an agreement given and revocable by you or for the fulfilment of a contract between us, and that such processing is carried out using automated procedures. If technically feasible, you may request us to transfer your data directly to another representative.

Objection

Right to object:

If we process your data for legitimate reasons, you may object to such processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling and protection-worthy grounds for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons. 

Appeal

Right to appeal:

If you are of the opinion that we have violated German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions you may have. Of course, you also have the right to contact the competent regulatory authority for you, the respective regional office for data protection supervision.

If you wish to exercise any of the aforementioned rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of any doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
