We are delighted about you being interested in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below, we inform you in detail about how we store and use your data.
Storage of Access Data in Server Log Files
You can visit our website without providing details about yourself. We only save access data in so-called server log files, for example the name of the requested files, date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the provider from which the request originates. This data is only used for securing a properly functioning website and for improving our services; no inference to you can be made.
Collection and Usage of Data for Contract Fulfillment and When Opening a Customer Account
We will collect your personal data when you place an order, contact us (via contact form or email) or when you open a customer account. The respective entry forms show which data is collected. We use the data transmitted by you for fulfilling your orders and processing your requests. After the contract is fulfilled or after your customer account is deleted, your data will be blocked for further usage and will be deleted after the mandatory storage periods specified in tax and commercial legislation, unless you have explicitly given consent to further use of your data. We also reserve the right to use your data further if it is permitted by law (further information below). You can delete your account any time, either by sending a message to the contact specified below or in your customer account settings.
Use of Data for Fulfilling Contracts
In order to fulfill a contract, your data is transferred to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery where necessary. For processing payments, we transfer the data necessary to the financial institution responsible for the payment or, if necessary, to a payment provider commissioned by you or by us.
