Data protection

 

We are pleased that you are visiting our website and thank you for your interest in our company and our products and services. The protection of your privacy when using our website is important to us. Therefore, please take note of the following information:

 

1. Collection, processing and use of personal data

In principle, you can visit our website without us collecting personal data from you. Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us of your own accord to execute a contract, when opening a customer account or when contacting us. Without your express consent, this data will only be used to process contracts and your inquiries. After the contract has been fully processed, your data will be blocked with due regard to tax and commercial retention periods and deleted after these periods have expired.

In addition, we use your e-mail address, which we receive in connection with the sale of goods or services, exclusively for direct advertising in the form of our newsletter for our own goods or services similar to those you have ordered, provided you have not objected to this use. You can object to the use of your email address at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. Your objection (and thus the cancellation of our newsletter) can be exercised by sending a message to our e-mail address (see legal notice).

 

2. Transfer of personal data

2.1 The personal data collected by us will be passed on to the transport company commissioned with the delivery as part of the contract processing, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods.

2.2 When paying by credit card via PayPal or by direct debit via PayPal, we pass on your payment data to PayPal (Europe) S.à rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg as part of the payment processing.

4. Use of Twitter plugins

Our website uses so-called social plugins ("plugins") from the microblogging service Twitter, which is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA ("Twitter"). The plugins are marked with a Twitter logo, for example in the form of a blue "Twitter bird". You can find an overview of the Twitter plugins and their appearance here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons

When you call up a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Twitter servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Twitter to your browser and integrated into the page. Through the integration, Twitter receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Twitter profile or are not currently logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is sent directly from your browser to a Twitter server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Twitter account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Twitter" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Twitter server and stored there. The information is also published on your Twitter account and shown to your contacts there.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Twitter as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Twitter's data protection information: https://twitter.com/privacy

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the visitor's computer and that enable an analysis of the website visitor's use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the abbreviated IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics is only used on this website with the "_anonymizeIp ()" extension.

The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by the relevant browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the site operator with other services related to website and internet use (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

reCAPTCHA

To protect your inquiries via the Internet form, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google LLC (Google). The query is used to differentiate whether the input is made by a person or improperly by automated, machine processing. The query includes the sending of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases.
