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.

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

2.1 Data processing for the purposes of performing the contract

For the purpose of performing the contract (including enquiries regarding the processing of any existing warranty and performance fault claims as well as any statutory updating obligations) in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, we collect personal data if you provide it to us voluntarily as part of your order. Mandatory fields are marked as such, as in these cases we necessarily need the data to process the contract and we cannot send the order without their specification. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

Further information on the processing of your data, in particular on the forwarding of the data to our service providers for the purpose of order, payment and shipping, 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 (1) (c) GDPR, 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.

2.2 Customer account

Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR by deciding to open a customer account, we will use and store your data for the purpose of opening the customer account as well as 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 via 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 (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.

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.

The same applies to the transfer of data to our manufacturers or wholesalers where they take over the shipment for us (drop shipping). These are considered to be shipping companies within the meaning of this privacy policy.

 Data transmission to a shipping provider for the purpose of shipment notification

Provided that you have given us your explicit consent, during or after your order, we will forward your phone number in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR to the selected shipping provider in order to enable them to contact you for the purpose of shipment notification or coordination prior to shipment.
This consent may be withdrawn at any time by sending a message to the contact information described in this privacy policy or directly to the shipping provider using the contact address listed below.

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.

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.

Protection of privacy for terminal devices
When you use our online services, we use technologies that are absolutely necessary in order to provide the telemedia service you have expressly requested. The storage of information in your terminal device or access to information that is already stored in your terminal device does not require consent in this respect.

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. Any consent you may have given will remain valid until you adjust or reset the respective settings in your terminal device.

Any downstream data processing through cookies and other technologies

We use such technologies that are strictly necessary for the use of certain functions of our website (e.g. shopping cart function). These technologies are used to collect and process IP addresses, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website (e.g. information on your preferences). This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in an optimised presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests.

In addition, we use technologies to fulfil the legal obligations, which we are subject to (e.g. to be able to prove consent to the processing of your personal data) as well as for web analysis and online marketing. Further information on this, including the respective legal basis for data processing, can be found in the following sections of this privacy policy.

On our website we may use other technologies, which are not listed individually in this privacy policy. Further information on these technologies and the respective legal basis can be found on the platform of our consent management service Usercentrics.

Your data will be deleted after three years, 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 your data in a manner that goes beyond this, which is legally permitted and about which we inform you in this privacy policy.

Our service providers are located and/or use servers in the following countries, for which the European Commission has established an adequate level of data protection by decision: USA.

 Use of Google services

We use the following technologies of Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). The information automatically collected by Google technologies about your use of our website is usually transferred to a server of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA and stored there. Unless otherwise specified for the specific technologies, data processing is based on an agreement concluded for the respective technology between jointly responsible parties in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR. Further information about data processing by Google can be found in Google's privacy policy.

Our service providers are located and/or use servers in countries outside the EU and the EEA for which the European Commission has established by decision an adequate level of data protection.

Our service providers are located and/or use servers in countries outside the EU and the EEA. For these countries there is no adequacy decision by the European Commission. Our cooperation is based on standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission.

 Google Analytics

For the purpose of website analysis, Google Analytics automatically collects and stores data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website), from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. Cookies may be used for this purpose. If you visit our website from the EU, your IP address will be stored on a server located in the EU to derive location data and then deleted immediately before the traffic is forwarded to further Google servers for processing. The data processing is carried out on the basis of an order processing agreement by Google.

 YouTube Video Plugin

In order to integrate third party content, data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information) are collected via the YouTube Video Plugin in the expanded data protection mode used by us, transmitted to Google and then processed by Google only when you play a video.

8. Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge / other widgets

Provided that you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR, Trusted Shops widgets are integrated on this website to display the Trusted Shops services (e.g. Trustmark, collected reviews) and to offer buyers Trusted Shops products after they have placed 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 GDPR. Within the scope of this data protection notice, we inform you in the following about the essential contractual contents in accordance with Art. 26 (2) GDPR.

Within the framework of the joint responsibility existing between us and Trusted Shops AG, please preferably contact Trusted Shops using the contact options provided in the privacy policy, if you have any data protection questions and wish to assert your rights. Irrespective of this, however, you can always contact the person responsible of your choice. Your enquiry will then, if necessary, be passed on to the other person responsible for a response.

8.1 Data processing when integrating the Trustbadge/other widgets

The Trustbadge is provided by a US-American CDN provider (content delivery network). An adequate level of data protection is ensured by an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, which can be accessed here for the USA. Service providers from the USA are generally certified under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (DPF). Further information is available here. Where service providers are not certified under the DPF, standard contractual clauses have been concluded as a suitable guarantee.

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 the call-up. Immediately after the data collection the IP address is anonymised so that the stored data cannot be assigned to you personally. The anonymised data are used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.

8.2 Data processing after order completion

Provided you have given your consent, the Trustbadge accesses order information stored in your terminal equipment (order total, order number, product purchased if applicable) and your e-mail address after the order has been completed. 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 in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

This serves to verify whether you are already registered for Trusted Shops services. If this is the case, further processing will take 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 Trustbadge, you will subsequently be given the opportunity to register manually for the use of the services or to conclude the insurance as part of your possibly already existing user contract.

For this purpose, the Trustbadge accesses the following information stored in the terminal equipment you use after you have completed your order: Order total, order number and email address. This is necessary so that we can offer you buyer protection. The data is only transmitted to Trusted Shops if you explicitly decide to take out buyer protection by clicking on the correspondingly designated button in the so-called Trustcard. If you decide to use the services, further processing is based on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, in order to be able to complete your registration for buyer protection and insure the order, as well as to be able to subsequently send you rating invitations by e-mail if necessary.

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 each case by an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, which can be accessed here for the USA and here for Israel. Service providers from the USA are generally certified under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (DPF). Further information is available here. Where service providers are not certified under the DPF, standard contractual clauses have been concluded as a suitable guarantee.
