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 access 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 access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offering. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. All access data is deleted no later than seven 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.


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


    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: Canada



    2. DATA PROCESSING FOR CONTRACT EXECUTION AND FOR CONTACTING US

      For the purpose of contract processing (including inquiries about and processing of any existing warranty and performance failure 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 as part of your order. Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process the contract and we cannot send the order without their information.

Mandatory fields are marked as such, since in these cases we absolutely need the data to process your contact. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

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.

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 prevail in the context of a balancing of interests.



          5. ADVERTISING BY E-MAIL, POST



            5.1 E-MAIL NEWSLETTER WITH REGISTRATION, NEWSLETTER TRACKING WITH SEPARATE CONSENT


            If you register for our newsletter, we will use the data required for this purpose or separately provided by you to send you our e-mail newsletter on a regular basis based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

              6.1 GENERAL INFORMATION


              In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use technologies including so-called cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files that are automatically stored on your terminal device.

Other cookies remain on your end device and allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies).

              We use such technologies that are absolutely necessary for the use of certain functions of our website (e.g. shopping cart function). 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. This serves, within the framework of a balancing of interests, overriding legitimate interests in an optimized presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

                7.1 USE OF GOOGLE SERVICES FOR WEB ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING PURPOSES.


                We use the technologies of Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"), as described below. The information automatically collected by Google technologies about your use of our website is usually transmitted to a server of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA and stored there. For the USA, there is no adequacy decision of the European Commission. Our cooperation with them is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission. If your IP address is collected via Google technologies, it is shortened before being stored on Google's servers by activating IP anonymization. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server and shortened there. Unless otherwise specified for the individual technologies, the data processing is based on an agreement concluded for the respective technology between jointly responsible parties in accordance with Art. 26 DSGVO. Further information on 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.


                For the purpose of optimized marketing of our website, we have activated the data release settings for "Google products and services". This allows Google to access the data collected and processed by Google Analytics and subsequently use it to improve Google services. Data sharing with Google under these data sharing settings is based on an additional agreement between responsible parties. We have no influence on the subsequent data processing by Google.


                For the purpose of optimized marketing of our website, we use the so-called User ID function. With the help of this function, we can assign a unique, permanent ID to your interaction data of one or more sessions on our online sites and thus analyze your user behavior across devices and sessions.


                To create and run tests, we also use the Google Analytics Google Optimize extension function.


                For web analysis, the Google Analytics Google Signals extension function enables so-called "cross-device tracking". Insofar as your internet-enabled devices are linked to your Google account and you have activated the "personalized advertising" setting in your Google account, Google can create reports about your usage behavior (esp. cross-device user numbers), even if you change your terminal device. A processing of personal data by us does not take place in this respect, we only receive statistics generated on the basis of Google Signals.


                For web analysis and advertising purposes, the extension function of Google Analytics enables the so-called DoubleClick cookie to recognize your browser when you visit other websites. Google will use this information to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website usage.


                GOOGLE ADSENSE


                Our website markets space for third-party ads through Google AdSense. These ads are displayed to you in various places on this website. Via the so-called DoubleClick cookie, the display of interest-based advertising is made possible by the collection and processing of data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information, and information about your use of our website) and the automatic assignment of a pseudonymous UserID, which is used to determine interests based on visits to this and other websites.


                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 about your use of our website) and by means of a pseudonymous CookieID and based on 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.


                GOOGLE MAPS


                For the visual presentation of geographical information, Google Maps collects data about your use of the Maps functions, in particular the IP address and location data, transmits it to Google and subsequently processes it by Google. We have no influence on this subsequent data processing.


                GOOGLE RECAPTCHA


                For the purpose of protection against misuse of our web forms as well as against spam by automated software (so-called bots), Google reCAPTCHA collects data (IP address, time of visit, browser information as well as information about your use of our website) and carries out an analysis of your use of our website by means of a so-called JavaScript as well as cookies. In addition, other cookies stored by Google services in your browser are evaluated. No personal data is read or stored from the input fields of the respective form.


                GOOGLE FONTS


                For the uniform presentation of the content on our website, data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information) is collected by the script code "Google Fonts", transmitted to Google and subsequently processed by Google. We have no influence on this subsequent data processing.



                7.2 USE OF MICROSOFT SERVICES FOR WEB ANALYSIS AND ADVERTISING PURPOSES


                We use the technologies outlined below from Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd, One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, D18 P521, Ireland ("Microsoft"). The data processing is carried out on the basis of an agreement between jointly responsible parties in accordance with Art. 26 DSGVO. The information automatically collected by Microsoft technologies about your use of our website is usually transferred to a server of Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA and stored there. For the USA, there is no adequacy decision of the European Commission. Our cooperation with them is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission. For further information on data processing by Microsoft, please refer to Microsoft's privacy policy.


                MICROSOFT ADVERTISING


                For advertising purposes in the Bing, Yahoo and MSN search results and on third party websites, when you visit our website, the so-called Microsoft Advertising Remarketing Cookie is set, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by collecting and processing data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information, and information about your use of our website) and by means of a pseudonymous CookieID and based on the pages you visit.


                For website analytics and event tracking, we use Microsoft Advertising Universal Event Tracking (UET) to measure your subsequent usage patterns when you have accessed our website through a Microsoft Advertising ad. 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 web page or signing up for a newsletter) may be collected, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. If your Internet-enabled devices are linked to your Microsoft account and you have not deactivated the "Interest-based advertising" setting in your Microsoft account, Microsoft may generate reports on usage behavior (in particular cross-device user numbers), even if you change your terminal device, so-called "cross-device tracking". We do not process personal data in this respect; we only receive statistics compiled on the basis of Microsoft UET.


                BING MAPS


                For the visual presentation of geographical information, Bing Maps collects data about your use of the Maps functions, in particular the IP address and location data, transmits them to Microsoft and Microsoft processes them. We have no influence on this data processing.



                7.3 USE OF FACEBOOK SERVICES FOR WEB ANALYSIS AND ADVERTISING PURPOSES


                USE OF FACEBOOK PIXEL


                We use the Facebook Pixel as part of the technologies described below from Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook (by Meta)" or "Meta Platforms Ireland"). The Facebook Pixel automatically collects and stores data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information, as well as information about your use of our website based on events specified by us, such as a visit to a website or newsletter registration), from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. In addition, as part of the so-called extended data matching, information is collected and stored hashed for matching purposes, with which individuals can be identified (e.g. names, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers). For this purpose, a cookie is automatically set by the Facebook Pixel when you visit our website, which automatically enables recognition of your browser when visiting other websites by means of a pseudonymous CookieID. Facebook (by Meta) will combine this information with other data from your Facebook account and use it to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website use, in particular personalized and group-based advertising.

                The information automatically collected by Facebook (by Meta) technologies about your use of our website is usually transferred to a server of Meta Platforms, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA and stored there. There is no adequacy decision of the European Commission for the USA. If the transfer of data to the USA is our responsibility, our cooperation is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission. For further information on data processing by Facebook, please refer to Facebook's privacy notices (by Meta).


                FACEBOOK ANALYTICS


                As part of the Facebook business tools, statistics on visitor activity on our website are created from the data collected with the Facebook Pixel about your use of our website. Data processing is carried out on the basis of an agreement on commissioned processing by Facebook (by Meta). Their analysis is used for the optimal presentation and marketing of our website.


                FACEBOOK ADS (AD MANAGER)


                Through Facebook Ads, we advertise this website on Facebook (by Meta) as well as on other platforms. We determine the parameters of the respective advertising campaign. Facebook (by Meta) is responsible for the exact implementation, in particular the decision on the placement of the ads with individual users. Unless otherwise specified for the individual technologies, the data processing is based on an agreement between joint controllers pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO. The joint responsibility is limited to the collection of the data and its transmission to Meta Platforms Ireland. The subsequent data processing by Meta Platforms Ireland is not covered by this.


                On the basis of the statistics on visitor activity on our website generated via Facebook Pixel, we operate group-based advertising on Facebook (by Meta) via Facebook Custom Audience by determining the characteristics of the respective target group. Within the scope of the extended data matching that takes place to determine the respective target group (see above), Facebook (by Meta) acts as our processor.


                Based on the pseudonymous cookie ID set by the Facebook Pixel and the data collected about your usage behavior on our website, we conduct personalized advertising via Facebook Pixel remarketing.


                Via Facebook Pixel Conversions, we measure for web analytics and event tracking your subsequent usage behavior when you have reached our website via an ad from Facebook Ads. The data processing is carried out on the basis of an agreement on commissioned processing by Facebook (by Meta).



                7.4 INFORMATION ON THIRD COUNTRY TRANSFER (DATA TRANSFER TO THIRD COUNTRIES).


                We use technologies from service providers on our website whose server locations may be in third countries, outside the EU or EEA. This also includes the USA. If, as in the case of the USA, there is no adequacy decision of the EU Commission, an adequate level of data protection must be ensured by means of other suitable guarantees. The ECJ ruled in July 2020 that the Privacy Shield agreement between the EU and the USA can no longer be used to transfer personal data to the USA. This means that the sectoral adequacy decision has thus been repealed.

                Suitable guarantees in the form of contractually agreed standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission or binding internal data protection rules (Binding Corporate Rules) are possible in principle, but require a prior review by the contracting parties as to whether an adequate level of protection can be guaranteed. According to the ruling of the ECJ, it may be necessary to take additional protective measures for this purpose.

                We have agreed in principle with the third-party technologies we use that process personal data in a third country such as the USA to the standard data protection clauses issued by the EU Commission, which continue to apply. Where possible, we also agree on additional guarantees to ensure that sufficient data protection is guaranteed in the USA or other third countries.

                Notwithstanding this, it may happen that, despite all contractual and technical measures, the level of data protection in the third country does not correspond to that in the EU. For these cases, we ask you, if necessary, in the context of the cookie consent, for your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) lit. a DSGVO for the transfer of your personal data to a third country. This refers in particular to the transfer of data to the USA.

                In particular, there is a risk that US authorities may receive access rights to your personal data that are not sufficiently restricted from an EU perspective, without us as data exporter or you as data subject being aware of this, and you may not have any legal remedies to prevent this or to take action against such access.



                8. INTEGRATION OF THE TRUSTED STORES TRUSTBADGE/ OTHER WIDGETS


                  To display our Trusted Shops seal of approval as well as to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after an order, the Trusted Shops trust badge is integrated on this website.


                  This serves to protect our legitimate interests in optimal marketing by enabling secure shopping, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne (Trusted Shops), with which we are jointly responsible for data protection pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO. In the following, we inform you about the essential contractual contents according to Art. 26 (2) DSGVO within the scope of this data protection notice.

                  Within the framework of the joint responsibility existing between us and Trusted Shops GmbH, please preferentially contact Trusted Shops GmbH in case of data protection questions and to assert your rights, whose contact options you can find here. Further information on data protection can be found in the following link here. Independently of this, you can also always contact us using the contact option described in this privacy policy. Your inquiry will then be passed on to the further responsible party for answering, if necessary.



                  8.1 DATA PROCESSING WHEN INTEGRATING THE TRUSTBADGE/OTHER WIDGETS


                  The trust badge is provided as part of a shared responsibility by a US CDN provider (content delivery network). An appropriate level of data protection is ensured by standard data protection clauses and other contractual measures. Further information on the data protection of Trusted Shops GmbH can be found here. 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, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. The IP address is anonymized immediately after collection so that the stored data cannot be assigned to you personally. The anonymized data is used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.



                  8.2 DATA PROCESSING AFTER ORDER COMPLETION


                  After order completion, your e-mail address, which is hashed by cryptological one-way function, is transmitted to Trusted Shops GmbH. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. 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 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If this is the case, further processing will be carried out in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you are not yet registered for the services, you will subsequently 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 is 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 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.
