Thank you for visiting our online shop. Protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find extensive information about how we handle your data.

1. Access data and hosting

You may visit our website without revealing any personal information. With every visit on the website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request. These access data are analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit on our website.

 Hosting

The services for hosting and displaying the website are partly provided by our service providers on the basis of processing on our behalf. Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, all access data and 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.

Our service providers may transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU and the EEA. For these countries, there is no adequacy decision of the European Commission. Our cooperation with them is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission as well as binding internal data protection regulations.

2. Data processing for the purposes of processing the contract, establishing contact

2.1 Data processing for the purposes of performing the contract

We collect personal data that you disclose to us whenever you place an order or contact us (e.g. via contact form or by email). Mandatory fields are marked as such because we absolutely need those data to perform the contract or process your contact request, and you would otherwise not be able to complete your order or send the contact request. It is evident in each input form what data are collected.

We use the data that you disclose to us to perform the contract and process your enquiries (including enquiries regarding the processing of any existing warranty and performance fault claims as well as any statutory updating obligations) according to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. You will find further information on the processing of your data, in particular on forwarding the data to our service providers for the purpose of order and shipping processing, in the following sections of this privacy policy. Upon contract completion, any further processing of your data will be restricted, and your data will be deleted upon expiry of any retention period applicable under relevant regulations according to Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR, unless you expressly agree to the further use of your data according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or we reserve the right to otherwise use your personal data in the scope and manner permitted by law, of which we inform you in this privacy policy.

2.2 Establishing contact

As part of our customer communication, we collect personal data in order to process your enquiries in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if you voluntarily provide us with this data when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, as in these cases we necessarily need the data to process your enquiry. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. After your enquiry has been fully processed, your data will be deleted unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this privacy policy.

3. Data processing for the purposes of shipment

We forward your data to the shipping company within the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods according to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

4. Data processing for the purposes of payment

As part of the payment process in our online shop, we work together with these partners: technical service provider, credit institution, payment service provider.

4.1 Data processing for the purposes of transaction processing

Depending on the selected payment method, we forward the data necessary for processing the payment transaction to our technical service providers, who act for us on the basis of processing on our behalf or to the authorised credit institutions or to the selected payment service provider insofar as this is necessary for the payment process. This serves the fulfilment of the contract according to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. In certain cases, payment service providers collect the data required for processing the payment themselves, e.g. on their own website or via technical solution within 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 purposes of fraud prevention and optimisation of our payment processes

We may forward other data to our service providers, which they use for the purpose of fraud prevention and to optimise our payment processes (e.g. invoicing, processing of contested payments, accounting support) together with the data necessary to process the payment as our processors.
This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in fraud prevention or an efficient payment management in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests.

4.3 Engagement of debt collection companies

In order to fulfil the contract according to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, we forward your data to an authorised debt collection agency (Culpa Inkasso GmbH, Schockenriedstrasse 8 b, 70565 Stuttgart, Germany) if our payment claim has not been settled despite a previous reminder. In this case, the claim will be collected directly by the collection agency. In addition, the transmission of data serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in an effective assertion or enforcement of our payment claim in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing interests.

4.4 Climate neutral shopping

We use "Ivy GmbH", Reichenbachstrasse 16, 80469 Munich, Germany as our payment method. If you decide to use the payment method offered by the provider Ivy, the payment will be processed by the technical service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower,Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland, to whom we will pass on the information you provided during the ordering process together with information about your order (name, address, account number, bank sort code, credit card number if applicable, invoice amount, currency and transaction number) in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO. Your data will only be passed on for the purpose of processing payments with Stripe Payments Europe Ltd. and only to the extent necessary for this purpose.

You can find data protection information on Stripe Payments Europe Ltd. here: https://stripe.com/de/privacy

5. Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge / other widgets

The Trusted Shops Trustbadge is integrated on this website to display our Trusted Shops Trustmark as well as to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after an order.

This serves to protect our legitimate interests in optimized marketing by enabling secure shopping in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne (Trusted Shops). We and Trusted Shops are joint controllers in data protection terms pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR. In the following section, we inform you about the essential contents of the joint controllership agreement according to Art. 26 (2) GDPR.

Within the framework of the joint responsibility between us and Trusted Shops GmbH, please contact Trusted Shops GmbH in the first place if you have any data protection questions or wish to assert your rights. You may find the contact possibilities here. Further information on the privacy policy of Trusted Shops GmbH can be found here. Irrespective of this, you can also always contact us using the contact option described in this privacy policy. Your enquiry will then be passed on to the other person responsible for answering, if necessary.

5.1 Data processing when integrating the Trustbadge/other widgets

The trust badge is provided as part of a joint controllership by a US CDN provider (content delivery network). An adequate level of data protection is ensured by standard data protection clauses and other contractual measures. Further information on the privacy policy of Trusted Shops GmbH can be found here. When the Trustbadge is viewed, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. The IP address is anonymized immediately after collection, so that the stored data cannot be assigned to your person. The anonymised data is used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.

5.2 Data processing after order completion

After order completion, your email address, which is hashed by cryptological one-way function, is transmitted to Trusted Shops GmbH. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. This serves to check whether you are already registered for services with Trusted Shops GmbH and is therefore necessary for the fulfillment of our and Trusted Shops' overriding legitimate interests in the provision of the Buyer Protection linked to the specific order in each case and the transactional evaluation services pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If this is the case, further processing will be carried out in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you have not yet registered for the services, you will be given the opportunity to do so for the first time. Further processing after registration also depends on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops GmbH. If you do not register, all transmitted data will be automatically deleted by Trusted Shops GmbH and a personal reference is then no longer possible.

Trusted Shops uses service providers in the areas of hosting, monitoring and logging. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR 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.

6. Social Media

 Social Plugins by Facebook (by Meta), Instagram (by Meta)

These are only integrated into the page as HTML links, so that no connection to the servers of the respective provider is established when our website is accessed. If you click on one of the buttons, the website of the respective social network will open in a new window of your browser. There you can click e.g. the Like or Share button.
