Privacy Policy
Thank you for 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.

Storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We only store access data in so-called server log files, such as the name of the requested file, date and time of retrieval, transferred data volume and the requesting provider. These data are evaluated exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and do not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.

Data collection and use for contract processing and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide it to us in connection with your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you to process contracts and your enquiries.

After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the storage periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you below. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done by sending a message to the contact option described below.

Data transfer for contract fulfilment
For the fulfilment of the contract we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, as far as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the order process, we pass on the payment data collected for the processing of payments to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to payment service providers commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies in this respect.

Use of data when registering for the e-mail newsletter
If you register for our newsletter, we use the data required for this or separately communicated by you in order to regularly send you our e-mail newsletter in accordance with your consent. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter 

Use of data for e-mail advertising without newsletter registration and your right of objection
If we receive your e-mail address in connection with the sale of a product or service and you have not objected to this, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers for similar products, such as those already purchased, from our range by e-mail. You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.

Use of data for postal advertising and your right of objection
In addition, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your postal address and - if we have received this additional information from you within the scope of the contractual relationship - your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business name in combined lists and to use them for our own advertising purposes, e.g. for sending interesting offers and information on our products by post. You can object to the storage and use of your data for these purposes at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below.
