The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. It is not possible for us to assign this data to a specific person.

Data collection and use – personal data

In principle, you can visit our website without providing any personal data. We only collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us when you place an order, contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or open a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.
Processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR with your consent. We use the data you provide to process the contract and your inquiries. After completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you below.
You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. You can withdraw your consent by sending a message to the contact option described below.

About the use of your data in detail:

E-mail newsletter

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the data required for this or separately provided by you to regularly send you our email newsletter in accordance with your consent.

Your e-mail address will then be removed from the mailing list.

E-mail advertising without newsletter subscription

If we receive your e-mail address in connection with the sale of a product or service, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers for similar products to those you have already purchased from our range by e-mail. This processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the advertising e-mail, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.

Data transfer for contract fulfillment

We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary in the context of contract processing, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the credit institution commissioned with payment processing. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. Further transmission of the data does not take place or only takes place if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.
In this respect, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.

E-mail advertising, use of MailChimp

We use this newsletter exclusively for our own advertising purposes for sending direct advertising. If you enter your e-mail address in the distribution list, this e-mail address will first be temporarily stored by MailChimp in order to send the owner of the e-mail address an e-mail in which the subscription to the e-mail list can be confirmed (“double opt-in”). After confirmation, the address is stored permanently at MailChimp until you delete your e-mail address or you are deleted from the newsletter list by us as the operator.
