Unless otherwise specified below, the provision of your personal data is neither required by law or contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Failure to provide has no consequences. This only applies if no other information is given in the subsequent processing operations. "Personal data" is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person.
You can visit our website without providing any information about yourself. Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted through your internet browser and stored in log data (server log files). These stored data include e.g. Name of the page called up, date and time of the call, amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. These data are used exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offer. It is not possible to assign this data to a specific person.
Collection and processing when using the contact form
When you use the contact form, we only collect your personal data (name, email address, message text) to the extent that you have provided. The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the transmitted data. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent.
You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation. We only use your email address to process your request. Your data will then be deleted unless you have consented to further processing and use.
When you open a customer account, we collect your personal data to the extent specified there. The data processing serves the purpose of improving your shopping experience and simplifying order processing. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation. Your customer account will then be deleted.
Collection, processing and use of personal data when placing orders
When ordering, we only collect and use your personal data insofar as this is necessary to fulfill and process your order and to process your inquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide it has the consequence that no contract can be concluded. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and is necessary for the performance of a contract with you. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. The only exceptions to this are our service partners, who we need to process the contractual relationship or service providers whom we use for order processing. In addition to the recipients named in the respective clauses of this data protection declaration, these are, for example, recipients of the following categories: shipping service providers, payment service providers, merchandise management service providers, service providers for order processing, web hosts, IT service providers and dropshipping dealers. In all cases, we strictly observe the legal requirements. The amount of data transmission is limited to a minimum.
Use of the email address for sending newsletters
We use your e-mail address, regardless of the contract processing, exclusively for our own advertising purposes for sending the newsletter, provided you have expressly consented to this. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the point of revocation. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by notifying us. Your e-mail address will then be removed from the mailing list.
Your data will be passed on to a service provider for email marketing as part of order processing. It will not be passed on to other third parties.
The processing takes place on the basis of § 15 (3) TMG as well as Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purposes.
The data collected from you in this way is pseudonymized by technical precautions. It is therefore no longer possible to assign the data to your person. The data will not be saved together with other personal data from you.
For reasons that arise from your particular situation, you have the right to object at any time to this processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.

Use of Google Analytics
We use the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google") on our website. The data processing serves the purpose of analyzing this website and its visitors. For this purpose, Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Use of Facebook plug-ins
This website uses the plug-in of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). If you call up pages on our website with such a plug-in, a connection to the Facebook servers is established and the plug-in is displayed on the page by a message to your browser. This tells the Facebook server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook will assign this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the "Like" button, submitting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in.
If you do not want Facebook to assign the information collected directly to your Facebook profile, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or use a “Facebook blocker” to block the loading of the Facebook plug-ins on our pages .

We use the function for embedding GoogleMaps maps from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”) on our website.
The function enables the visual display of geographic information and interactive maps.
When the pages in which GoogleMaps maps are integrated, Google also collects, processes and uses data from visitors to the pages. You can find more information on the collection and use of data by Google in Google's data protection information under https://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html. There you can also change your settings in the data protection center so that you can manage and protect your data processed by Google.
Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. There is an adequacy decision by the European Commission for data transfers to the USA.
