Data protection

Unless otherwise stated below, the provision of your personal data is neither legally nor contractually required, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Failure to provide the data has no consequences. This only applies if no other information is provided in the subsequent processing operations.
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.


Server log files
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information.
Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted to us or our web host/IT service provider through your Internet browser and stored in protocol data (so-called server log files). This stored data includes, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the IP address, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR due to our overriding legitimate interest in ensuring the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offering.


Orders

Collection, processing and transfer of personal data when placing orders
When you place an order, we only collect and process your personal data to the extent that this is necessary to fulfil and process your order and to process your enquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide the data means that no contract can be concluded. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR and is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you.
Your data will be passed on, for example, to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers you have chosen, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers. In all cases, we strictly adhere to the legal requirements. The scope of data transmission is limited to a minimum.


Rights of data subjects and storage period

Duration of storage
After the contract has been fully processed, the data will initially be stored for the duration of the warranty period, then taking into account statutory retention periods, in particular those under tax and commercial law, and then deleted after the deadline has expired, unless you have consented to further processing and use.


Rights of the data subject
If the legal requirements are met, you have the following rights under Articles 15 to 20 of the GDPR: Right to information, to rectification, to erasure, to restriction of processing, to data portability.
Furthermore, according to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, you have the right to object to processing based on Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR and to processing for direct marketing purposes.


Please contact us if you wish. You can find the contact details in our legal notice.

Right to complain to the supervisory authority
According to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to complain to the supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data is not lawful.


Right to object
If the personal data processing listed here is based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to this processing at any time with effect for the future for reasons arising from your particular situation.
Once you have objected, the processing of the data concerned will be stopped unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you can object to this processing at any time by notifying us. After the objection has been made, we will stop processing the data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

Information on data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the controller responsible for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the visitor's computer and that enable an analysis of the use of the website by the visitor. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the visitor (including the shortened IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" on this website. This extension ensures that the IP address is anonymized by shortening it and excludes any direct personal reference. The extension means that Google's IP address is shortened beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

On behalf of the website operator, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and internet usage (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The legitimate interest in data processing lies in optimizing this website, analyzing website usage and adapting content. The interests of users are adequately protected by pseudonymization.

Google LLC offers a guarantee based on the standard contractual clauses to maintain an appropriate level of data protection. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plug-in can be downloaded and installed using the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .

The visitor can prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics on this website by clicking on the following link An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of data when visiting this website.

Further information on data usage by Google, setting options and objection options can be found in Google's privacy policy ( https://policies.google.com/privacy ) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google ( https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated ).


reCAPTCHA

To protect your enquiries via the internet form, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google LLC (Google). The query is used to distinguish whether the input was made by a human or was misused by automated, machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The different data protection provisions of the company Google apply to this data.
