Data Protection Policy
1.1 What is personal data
Personal data is information that discloses or can disclose the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. As far as possible, personal data will not be collected.
1.2 Dealing with personal data
Personal data is used solely for the purpose of establishing the contract, structuring its content, implementing or processing the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I S. 1 b DSGVO).
In addition, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent to do so (Art. 6 I S. 1 a DSGVO) or if it concerns data whose processing is necessary for our legitimate interests and insofar as the assessment shows that no overriding interests, fundamental rights or fundamental freedoms on your part conflict (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO).
We may use contract processors to process your personal data but will not pass on your personal data to third parties in any case.
The data will only be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery in order to fulfill the contract, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. In order to process payments, the necessary payment data will be passed on to the bank commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the commissioned and selected payment service provider.
The processing of your personal data takes place exclusively within the EU, unless otherwise stated below.
1.3 Usage data
When you visit the website, general technical information is collected. This includes the IP address used, time of day, duration of the visit, browser type and, if applicable, the page of origin. This usage data is registered in a log file for technical reasons and can be used and stored for the purpose of statistical evaluation of this website. This usage data will not be linked with your other personal data.
1.4 Registration data
Registration is required for the comprehensive use of the functions of our website. The registration data is collected through your corresponding entries and used for the specific purpose stated in accordance with your consent (Art. 6 I S. 1 a DSGVO).
1.5 Duration of storage
After termination of the purpose for which the data was collected, we will only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary due to legal (in particular tax) regulations.
2. Your rights
You can request information from us as to whether we process your personal data and, if so, you have the right to information about this personal data and to the further information specified in Art. 15 DSGVO.
2.2 Right to Correction
You have the right to rectify the incorrect personal data concerning you and may request the completion of incomplete personal data in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO.
2.3 Right to cancellation
You have the right to demand that we delete the personal data concerning you immediately. We are obliged to delete them immediately, in particular if one of the following reasons applies:
– Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
– You revoke your consent on which the processing of your data was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
– Your data have been processed unlawfully.
The right to deletion does not exist insofar as your personal data are necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of our legal claims.
2.4 Right to limitation of processing
You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data if
– you dispute the accuracy of the data and we therefore verify its accuracy,
– the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete it and instead request the restriction of its use
– we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
– you have objected to the processing of your data and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.
2.5 Right to Data Transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and you have the right to transfer such data to another responsible person without our interference, provided that the processing is based on consent or a contract and the processing is carried out by us using automated procedures.
2.6 Right of revocation
If the processing of your personal data is based on a consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.
2.7 General and right of appeal
The exercise of your aforementioned rights is generally free of charge for you. You have the right to directly contact the supervisory authority responsible for us, the state data protection officer, in the event of complaints.

These social media platforms may be able to process personal data outside the EU, we refer in this respect to the above data protection declarations of the social media platforms.
The respective social media platforms may create user profiles and store cookies on your computer, in which your user behaviour is stored, based on your user behaviour and the resulting interests on your part.

Your user profile can be used, for example, to place advertisements that presumably correspond to your interests.
We process the personal data exclusively for communication with you via the social media platform selected by you and for the optimisation of our social media platform and ensure that no interests on your part are affected which outweigh this justified interest on our part (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO).

7. Third-party services
7.1 Social media links and social sharing
We have our own social media pages with the third-party providers that can be reached via links from this website. By using the links, you can access the respective websites of the third party providers (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+) and also share our content. Here no data transfer takes place by the call of our website. In order to avoid unnecessary data transfer before using a corresponding link, we recommend that you log out of the respective third-party provider yourself so that usage profiles cannot be created by the third-party provider through the use of the link under certain circumstances.
7.2 Use of Facebook Plug-ins
Plugins of the social network www.facebook.com are used on these Internet pages, which is operated by Facebook Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The entity responsible for processing the information collected by Facebook is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
When you access Internet pages of our website that are equipped with such a plugin, a connection is established to the Facebook servers and the plugin is activated by a message to your browser on the Internet page. This will tell the Facebook server which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged into Facebook as a member, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button, posting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before activating the plug-in. Further information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and ways to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection information at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
