Collection of access data

The delivery and presentation of content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. When you access our website, these so-called server log files are recorded by us or the provider of the web space. These log files do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you and yourself. The corresponding information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you are have switched to our site and the corresponding IP address. We use this data to display and deliver our content and for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our offer.

Personal data

We collect personal data in the context of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and for as long as is necessary for the use of our website or as prescribed by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of data collection ceases to exist or the end of the statutory storage period has expired, the data collected will be blocked or deleted. Our website can be used regularly without the disclosure of personal data. When we collect personal data - such as your name, address or email address - this data is collected voluntarily. Without your expressly given consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties. Please note that data is generally not always transmitted securely on the Internet. Protection in data exchange cannot be guaranteed, especially in e-mail traffic.

contact form

If you send us inquiries using the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal email. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.

Data transmission when concluding a contract for online shops, retailers and shipping of goods

We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary in the context of contract execution, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the credit institution commissioned with the payment processing. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

PayPal

On our website we offer payment via PayPal, among other things. The provider of this payment service is PayPal (Europe) S.à.rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter "PayPal").

If you select payment via PayPal, the payment data you entered will be transmitted to PayPal.

Your data will be transmitted to PayPal on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent) and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (processing to fulfill a contract). You have the option to revoke your consent to data processing at any time. A revocation does not affect the effectiveness of past data processing operations.

Server log files

The server log files are anonymous data that are recorded when you access our website. This information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you personally, but is essential for technical reasons for the delivery and presentation of our content. They also serve our statistics and the constant optimization of our content. Typical log files are the date and time of access, the amount of data, the browser and its version used for access, the operating system used, the domain name of the provider you commissioned, the page from which you came to our offer (referrer URL) and your IP address. Log files also enable a precise check in the event of suspected illegal use of our website.

SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption when it comes to the transmission of confidential or personal content from our users. This encryption is activated, for example, when processing payment transactions and inquiries that you send to us via our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated on your side for corresponding activities. The use of encryption is easy to see: the display in your browser line changes from "http: //" to "https: //". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information if SSL encryption is activated and if in doubt, contact us.

Objection to advertising emails

As part of the legal obligation to provide an imprint, we must publish our contact details. Some of these are used by third parties to send unwanted advertising and information. We hereby object to any kind of advertising material that we have not expressly authorized. We also expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the undesired and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam emails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that the unauthorized transmission of advertising material can affect both competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam emails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages,

Encrypted payments

We secure your data in payment transactions. This is why our site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect your confidential and personal content during transmission in payment transactions. You can determine yourself whether SSL encryption is activated or not. You can recognize the use of encryption by the address line of the browser. Data transmission is only encrypted if the regular display changes from "http: //" to "https: //". The browser line "https: //" shows the use of SSL encryption, the payment transactions are now encrypted. Activating SSL encryption makes it impossible for third parties to read your confidential data. Therefore, only transfer your data if SSL encryption is activated.

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link:  https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html .
