We appreciate your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.
1. Access data and hosting
You can visit our website without giving any personal information. Each time a web page is accessed, the web server automatically stores a so-called server log file, which, for example, contains the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred and contains the requesting provider (access data) and it documents the accessing.
This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring a trouble-free operation of the website as well as the improvement of our supply. In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, this serves the purpose of ensuring that our legitimate interests, which are predominantly within the scope of a balance of interests, ensure that our offer is correctly presented. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after your web page visit.
2. Data collection and use for contract processing and opening a customer account
We collect personal information if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your order, when contacting us (for example, by contact form or e-mail) or when creating a customer account. Mandatory fields are marked as such, since in these cases we need the data mandatory for the contract or to process your contact or opening the customer account and you cannot complete the order and/or account opening without specifying this data. Getting in contact is also impossible under these circumstances. The data collected is shown in the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR for contract handling and processing of your inquiries. After completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the fiscal and commercial retention periods. Unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to further its use, it is legally permitted, and we inform you of this in this statement. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a designated function 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.
Disclosure of data to a shipping provider
If, when or after placing your order, you have given your express consent to us doing so, we disclose your e-mail address and phone number to the selected shipping provider based on that consent according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a GDPR, in order to enable the shipping provider to contact you to advise you of the delivery or agree with you the delivery details.
You may revoke your consent at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below or by directly notifying the shipping provider at the contact address specified below. After you revoke your consent, we will delete the data disclosed for this purpose, 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 the law, of which we inform you in this notice.

5. Data usage in payment processing
If we make an advance payment, e.g., when purchasing on account or direct debit, it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract pursuant to Art. 22 para. 2 lit. a GDPR to obtain identity and credit information from specialized service companies (credit agencies). This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which predominate in the context of a weighing up of interests, in order to minimise payment defaults. For this purpose, we will transfer your personal data required for a credit check to the following companies:
Creditreform Boniversum Ltd.
41460 Neuss, Germany
Appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests will be considered. You have the possibility to present your point of view and to challenge the decision by getting in contact through the contact options described below.

The information received about the statistical probability of a default of payment is used by Paypal for a considered decision on the establishment, execution or termination of the contractual relationship.
You can revoke your consent to PayPal at any time. However, it may continue to be entitled to process, use and transmit your personal information as contractually required or simply required by law for payment purposes or as ordered by a court or agency.
6. Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge
To display our Trusted Shops quality seal and the collected reviews as well as the offer of Trusted Shops products for buyers after placing an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is included on this website.

The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are offered by Trusted Shops Ltd., Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne, Germany.
When the Trustbadge is evoked, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which, for example, saves your IP address, date and time of retrieval, transmitted amount of data and the requesting provider (access data). Your access will also be documented. These access data will not be evaluated and automatically overwritten within seven days after the end of your page visit.
Further personal data is only transferred to Trusted Shops as far as you decide after the conclusion of an order for the use of Trusted Shops products or have already registered for the use. In this case, the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.
