Privacy and data protection
Thank you for your interest in our website. Your privacy is important to us. Below we will provide detailed information about how we treat your data.
Collection, processing and use of personal data
You can visit our site without having to give any personal data. We only store – even when the visit may take place using a newsletter link – access data without any personally identifiable data, such as for example the name of your Internet provider, the page you came from, the name of the requested file. This data is only assessed for the purpose of improving our offer, and it does not enable us to deduce any personal information.
We collect, store and process your data for advertising purposes as part of you making contact and registering for our newsletter. Personal data is collected when you voluntarily fill out a contact form as part of making contact with us or register for our newsletter.
Your personal data is shared with service providers we use to complete the order (forwarder, logistics company, banks).

You have the right of information about your saved data as well as possibly the right to correction or deletion of this data.
If you have separately registered for our newsletter, your e-mail address is used for our advertising, until you deregister from our newsletter. Deregistration is possible at any time without causing any other expenses apart from the transmission cost according to the base rate of your access provider. We use the data you provided to carry out and complete your orders. When you register for our newsletter, your e-mail address is used for our advertising, until you deregister from our newsletter. You can deregister at any time.
Session cookies are deleted when you close your browser.
We secure our website and other systems by means of technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. You can only access your customer account by inputting your personal password.

“This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics solution by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files saved on your computer enabling to analyse how you use the website. The information how you use the website generated by the cookies is generally transferred to and saved on a Google server in the USA. In case the IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address is shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the treaty of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator to evaluate how you use the website, to compile reports about the website activities and to provide other services in connection with the website use and the Internet use for the website provider. The IP address your browser transmits as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies with certain settings in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Use of social plugins of Facebook and Google+
We use so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social networks Facebook and Google+ on our website. These services are offered by the companies Facebook Inc. and Google Inc. (“providers”). Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). An overview of plugins and their looks can be viewed here:
If you call up a page of our website which contains such a plugin, your browser sets up a direct connection to the servers of Google or Facebook. The relevant provider transmits the content of the plugin directly to your browser and includes it in the page. By including the plugin the providers receive the information that your browser has called up the respective page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on the relevant social network or are not logged in at the time. Your browser transmits this information (including your IP address) directly to a server of the relevant provider in the USA, where it is stored.
If you are logged into one of the social networks, the provider can assign the visit on our website directly to your profile on Facebook or Google+. When you interact with plugins, for example press “Like” or “+1”, the corresponding information is also directly transmitted to and stored on the provider’s server. The information is furthermore published in the social network and shown to your contacts.
The purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing and use of the data by the provider as well as your corresponding rights and possible settings to protect your privacy are described in the Provider’s Data Protection Policy.
Data Policy of Facebook:
Buttons Policy of Google:
If you do not want that Google or Facebook assign the data collected from our website directly to your profile on the respective social network, you have to log out from the respective network, before you visit our website.
With Add-Ons for your browser you can also fully prevent that plugins are loaded, e.g. the Facebook plugins with the Facebook blocker (https://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).
