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

Storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our website without giving any personal information. We only store access data in so-called server logfiles, such as the name of the requested file, date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. This data is used exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.

Collection and use of data for contract processing and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with it in connection with your order, when contacting us (e. g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you for contract processing and processing of your enquiries. After complete execution of the contract or deletion of your customer account your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after the expiry of the fiscal and commercial retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to a further use of your data or we reserve the right to a further use of your data, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you below. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or by using a dedicated function in the customer account.

Data transfer for contract fulfilment
In order to fulfil the contract, we will pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you choose in the order process, we pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution and, if applicable, payment service providers commissioned by us for the processing of payments or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider shall apply in this respect.
