Thank you for your interest in our website. Protection of your privacy is very important for us. The following contains detailed information on how we handle your data.
Storing access data in server log files
You can visit our website without providing personal data. We store access data only in so-called server log files, e.g. the name of the requested file, the date and time of the request, the transmitted data volume and the requested provider. This data is evaluated solely to ensure trouble-free operation of the website and to improve our offer and does not enable any conclusions about your person.
Collection and use of data for contract processing and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data if you provide this voluntarily in the framework of your order, when contacting us (e.g. in a contact form or email), or when you open a customer account. You can see the data that is collected in the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process the contract and to handle your enquiries. After the contract has been processed in full, or your customer account has been cancelled, your data is blocked for further use and is deleted after expiry of the storage periods in accordance with tax and commercial law provisions, unless you have expressly approved the further use of your data or we have reserved further use of data beyond this as permitted by law and about which we inform you below. You may cancel your customer account at any time either by sending a message to the contact address described below or by using a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.
Data transfer in fulfilment of the contract
To fulfil the contract we transfer your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery, in so far as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods you ordered. Depending on which payment services provider you select in the order process, to process payments we transfer the payment data to the credit institution that is commissioned to make the payment and, where applicable, to the payment service provider we commissioned or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers collect this data themselves as well if you open an account there. In this case, you must register with the payment service provider during the order process with your access data. Insofar, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.
Data use when registering for the email newsletter
If you register for our newsletter, we use the data that is necessary for us or that you provided separately to send you our email newsletter regularly in accordance with your approval. You may cancel the newsletter at any time either by sending a message to the contact shown below or by using a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter.
Data use for email marketing without registering for the newsletter and your right to object
If we receive your email address in connection with the sale of goods and services and you have not objected, we reserve the right to mail you regular offers of products in our range similar to those previously bought. You may object to this use of your email address at any time by sending a message to the contact shown below or by using a link provided for this purpose in the marketing mail without incurring any costs other than transmission costs in accordance with basic rates.
Data use for postal advertising and your right to object
In addition to this, we reserve the right to store your name and family name, your postal address and, if you have provided this, additional information in the framework of the contractual relationship, your title, university degree, year of birth and your profession, sector or business designation, in lists and to use them for our own advertising purposes, e.g. sending interesting offers and information on our products by post. You may object at any time to the storage and use of this data for these purposes by sending a message to the contact described below.
