Privacy Statement

1. General

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, we do not collect personal data.

1.2 Dealing with personal data
Personal data is used solely to establish the contract, structuring its content, implementing or processing the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I S. 1 b DSGVO).
Besides, 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 if the assessment shows that there are no overriding interests, fundamental rights or fundamental freedoms on your part (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.
The data will only be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery to fulfill the contract, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. 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.

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 behavior is stored, based on your user behavior and the resulting interests on your part.

5. Third-party services

5.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google and operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”), and collects and stores via this web analytics service data from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. The user profiles created in this way are used to evaluate visitor behavior to design and improve the services presented on this website in line with requirements. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Even the user profiles under a pseudonym are not merged with the personal data of the user without the express and separately declared consent of the user. Thus, the assessment shows that no overriding interests on your part conflict (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your information from being collected on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics. You can view Google’s privacy policy at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. You can find more information about the terms of use and data protection at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html respectively. We want to point out that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp” to guarantee an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

5.2 Social media links
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 will reach the respective websites of the third-party providers (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google+). To avoid unnecessary data transfer, we recommend that you log out of the respective third-party provider yourself before using a corresponding link, so the third-party provider cannot create that usage profiles through the use of the link.

5.3 Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps, a map service provided by Google and operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). When Google Maps is used, data on the use of the Maps functions by visitors to the website is also collected, processed, and used. This does not affect the interests of users who outweigh the technical necessity of integrating interactive map material (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You can view Google’s data protection information at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. You can view the additional useful information for Google Maps at http://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.

5.4 Use of Google ReCAPTCHA
This website uses the reCAPTCHA service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). This function is used to distinguish between input by a human being and misuse by automated machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha is not merged with other Google data. The processing thus serves to avoid the misuse of this website and is ultimately anonymous, so that the weighing of interests shows that no overriding interests on your part stand in the way of processing (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). It asserts Google’s data protection guidelines, which can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

5.5 Google Web Fonts
We use web fonts from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”) to provide you with a consistent font on our website. These are automatically stored in your browser cache when you visit one of our pages to enable the desired display. If your browser does not support the web fonts used, a standard font of your computer may be used. Here no interests of the users are concerned, which outweigh this technical necessity (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You can view Google’s privacy policy here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq
