Data protection declaration


Unless stated otherwise below, the provision of your personal data is neither legally nor contractually obligatory, nor required for conclusion
of a contract. You are not obliged to provide your data. Not providing it will have no consequences. This only applies as long as the
processing procedures below do not state otherwise.
“Personal data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Server log files
You can use our websites without submitting personal data.
Every time our website is accessed, user data is transferred to us or our web hosts/IT service providers by your internet browser and stored
in server log files. This stored data includes for example the name of the site called up, date and time of the request, the IP address,
amount of data transferred and the provider making the request. The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) f) GDPR due to
our legitimate interests in ensuring the smooth operation of our website as well as improving our services.
Your data may be transferred to third countries outside the European Union for which an adequacy decision has been made by the EU
Commission. In the absence of an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, such as for transfers to the USA, the data transfers will be
based on standard contractual clauses as appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data, among other things, available at:

Contact


Responsible person
Contact us at any time. The contact details of the person responsible for data processing can be found in our legal notice.
Proactive contact of the customer by e-mail
If you make contact with us proactively via email, we shall collect your personal data (name, email address, message text) only to the extent
provided by you. The purpose of the data processing is to handle and respond to your contact request.
If the initial contact serves to implement pre-contractual measures (e.g. consultation in the case of purchase interest, order creation) or
concerns an agreement already concluded between you and us, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.
If the initial contact occurs for other reasons, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR for the purposes of our
overriding, legitimate interest in handling and responding to your request. In this case, on grounds relating to your particular situation,
you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out on the basis of Article
6(1)(f) GDPR. We will only use your email address to process your request. Your data will subsequently be deleted in compliance with statutory retention
periods, unless you have agreed to further processing and use.


Orders


Collection, processing, and transfer of personal data in orders
When you submit an order we only collect and use your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment and handling of your
order as well as processing of your queries. The provision of data is necessary for conclusion of a contract. Failure to provide it will prevent
the conclusion of any contract. The processing will occur on the basis of Article 6(1) b) GDPR and is required for the fulfilment of a contract
with you.
Your data is transferred here for example to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers, payment service providers, service
providers for handling the order and IT service providers that you have selected. We will comply strictly with legal requirements in every
case. The scope of data transmission is restricted to a minimum.
Your data may be transferred to third countries outside the European Union for which an adequacy decision has been made by the EU
Commission. In the absence of an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, such as for transfers to the USA, the data transfers will be
based on standard contractual clauses as appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data, among other things, available at:
https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_de

 

Advertising


Use of your email address for mailing of direct marketing
We use your email address, which we obtained in the course of selling a good or service, for the electronic transmission of marketing for our
own goods or services which are similar to those you have already purchased from us, unless you have objected to this use. You must
provide your email address in order to conclude a contract. Failure to provide it will prevent the conclusion of any contract. The processing
will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR due to our justified interest in direct marketing. You can object to this use of your
email address at any time by contacting us. You will find the contact details for exercising your right to object in our imprint. You
can also use the link provided in the marketing email. This will not involve any costs other than transmission costs at basic tariffs.


Shipping companies


Forwarding of your email address to shipping companies for information on shipping status
We forward your email address to the shipping company in the course of contractual processing, if you have explicitly agreed to this in the
order process. The forwarding is for the purpose of informing you by email on the shipping status of your order. The processing will be
carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us or the
transport company without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal.

Our website uses the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google LLC. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043,
USA; "Google"). If you are ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow
Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the controller responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google
responsible for processing your data and for compliance with the applicable data protection legislation.
The processing of data serves to analyse this website and its visitors and for marketing and advertising purposes. Google will use this
information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to
provide other services to the website operator relating to website and internet use. In this process the following information, inter alia, can
be collected: IP address, date and time of the website access, click path, information on the browser and the device you are using, the
pages visited, referrer URL (website via which you accessed our website), location data, purchasing activities. The IP address transmitted
from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not associated with any other data held by Google. Google Analytics uses
technology such as cookies, web storage in the browser, and tracking pixels which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The
information generated by these regarding your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored
there. Google relies on standard contractual clauses as suitable guarantees for the protection of personal data, available at:
https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks. Both Google and the US government authorities have access to your data. Google may
combine your data with other data, such as your search history, personal accounts, usage data from other devices and any other
information Google has about you.


IP anonymisation is activated on this website. Google uses this to shorten your IP address beforehand within Member States of the
European Union or in other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address
be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
The use of cookies or comparable technologies is based on § 15 para. 3 p. 1 TMG. The processing of your personal data is based on
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR due to our overriding legitimate interest in the needs-based and targeted design of the website. On grounds
relating to your particular situation, you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you.

multiple devices you can place an opt-out cookie. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. You
need to implement the opt-out on all systems and devices that you are using, so that this works comprehensively. If you delete the opt-out
cookie, requests will be transmitted to Google again. When you click here the opt-out cookie will be placed: Deactivate Google Analytics.
