Thank you for your interest in our online store. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

1. access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time you call up a website, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh our interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. All access data is deleted no later than fourteen days after the end of your visit to the site.

Hosting
The services for hosting and displaying the website are partly provided by our service providers as part of processing on our behalf. Unless otherwise explained in this privacy policy, all access data as well as all data collected in forms provided for this purpose on this website are processed on their servers. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy.

2. data processing for contract execution and for contacting us

2.1 Data processing for contract processing
For the purpose of contract processing (including inquiries about and processing of any existing warranty and performance claims as well as any statutory update obligations) in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO, we collect personal data if you provide it to us voluntarily in the context of your order. Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process the contract and without their information we can not send the order. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. Further information on the processing of your data, in particular on the transfer to our service providers for the purpose of order, payment and shipping processing, can be found in the following sections of this privacy policy. After complete processing of the contract, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

2.2 Customer account
Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account as well as for storing your data for further future orders on our website. Deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described in this privacy policy or by using a function provided for this purpose in the customer account. After deletion of your customer account, your data will be deleted, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this statement.

2.3 Contacting

After complete processing of your request, your data will be deleted, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this statement.

3. data processing for the purpose of shipment processing.

Data transfer to shipping service providers for the purpose of shipping notification
If you have given us your express consent to do so during or after your order, we will pass on your e-mail address to the selected shipping service provider on the basis of this consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, so that the shipping service provider can contact you before delivery for the purpose of delivery notification or coordination.

4. data processing for payment handling When processing payments in our online store, we work with these partners: technical service providers, credit institutions, payment service providers.

4.1 Data processing for transaction processing
Depending on the selected payment method, we pass on the data necessary for processing the payment transaction to our technical service providers, who work for us within the framework of order processing, or to the commissioned credit institutions or to the selected payment service provider, insofar as this is necessary for processing the payment. This serves the fulfillment of the contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO. In some cases, the payment service providers collect the data required for processing the payment themselves, e.g. on their own website or via a technical integration in the ordering process. In this respect, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies. If you have any questions about our payment processing partners and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy.

4.2 Data processing for the purpose of fraud prevention and optimization of our payment processes.
Where applicable, we provide our service providers with further data, which they use together with the data necessary for the processing of the payment as our processors for the purpose of fraud prevention and optimization of our payment processes (e.g. invoicing, processing of contested payments, accounting support). Pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in our protection against fraud or in efficient payment management, which outweigh these interests in the context of a balancing of interests.

You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact option described in this data protection declaration or via a link provided for this purpose in the advertising e-mail, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.

Protection of privacy on end devices

For functions that are not absolutely necessary, the storage of information in your terminal device or access to information that is already stored in your terminal device requires your consent. Please note that if you do not give your consent, parts of the website may not be available for unrestricted use.

Through these technologies, IP address, time of visit, device and browser information, as well as information about your use of our website (e.g. information about the contents of the shopping cart) are collected and processed.

Further information about data processing by Google can be found in Google's privacy policy.

Google Analytics
For the purpose of website analysis, Google Analytics automatically collects and stores data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information, and information about your use of our website), from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. Cookies may be used for this purpose. As a matter of principle, your IP address will not be merged with other data from Google. Data processing is carried out on the basis of an order processing agreement by Google.

Google Ads
For advertising purposes in Google search results as well as on third-party websites, the so-called Google Remarketing Cookie is set when you visit our website, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by collecting and processing data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website) and by means of a pseudonymous CookieID and on the basis of the pages you visit. Data processing beyond this only takes place if you have activated the "personalized advertising" setting in your Google account. In this case, if you are logged in to Google while visiting our website, Google uses your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing. For website analysis and event tracking, we measure your subsequent usage behavior via Google Ads Conversion Tracking if you have reached our website via an advertisement from Google Ads. For this purpose, cookies may be used and data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information, and information about your use of our website based on events specified by us, such as visiting a website or subscribing to a newsletter) may be collected, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms.

8. integration of the Trusted Shops trustbadge/ other widgets.
Provided that you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, Trusted Shops widgets are integrated on this website to display Trusted Shops services (e.g. seal of approval, collected ratings) and to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after an order. The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops AG, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne ("Trusted Shops"), with whom we are jointly responsible for data protection according to Art. 26 DSGVO. In the following, we inform you about the essential contractual contents according to Art. 26 (2) DSGVO within the framework of this data protection notice.

Within the framework of the joint responsibility existing between us and Trusted Shops AG, please prefer to contact Trusted Shops in the event of data protection questions and to assert your rights using the contact options specified in the data protection information. Irrespective of this, however, you can always contact the responsible person of your choice. Your inquiry will then be forwarded to the further responsible party for response, if necessary.

8.1 Data processing when integrating the trust badge/other widgets
The trust badge is provided by a US-based CDN provider (content delivery network). An appropriate level of data protection is ensured by standard data protection clauses and other contractual measures. When the Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of the call-up, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call-up. The IP address is anonymized immediately after collection so that the stored data cannot be assigned to your person. The anonymized data is used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.

8.2 Data processing after order completion
Provided that you have given your consent, the Trustbadge accesses order information stored in your terminal equipment (order total, order number, purchased product, if applicable) and e-mail address after order completion, and your e-mail address is hashed using a cryptological one-way function. The hash value is then transmitted to Trusted Shops with the order information pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. This serves to check whether you are already registered for Trusted Shops services. If this is the case, further processing takes place in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you are not yet registered for the services or do not give your consent to automatic recognition via the trust badge, you will subsequently be given the opportunity to register manually for the use of the services or to complete the protection within the scope of your possibly already existing user agreement. For this purpose, the Trustbadge accesses the following information stored in the terminal device you use after you complete your order: Order total, order number and e-mail address. This is necessary so that we can offer you buyer protection. The data is only transmitted to Trusted Shops if you actively decide to conclude the buyer protection by clicking on the correspondingly designated button in the so-called trust card. If you decide to use the services, further processing is based on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, in order to complete your registration for buyer protection and secure the order and, if necessary, to be able to send you rating invitations by e-mail afterwards. Trusted Shops uses service providers in the areas of hosting, monitoring and logging. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation. Processing may take place in third countries (USA and Israel). An adequate level of data protection is ensured in the case of the USA by standard data protection clauses and further contractual measures and in the case of Israel by an adequacy decision. Further information is available here.
