Privacy Statement
We are delighted about your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Please find below comprehensive information on how we will handle your data.

Storage of access data in server log files
You may view our websites without providing personal information. We will only store access data in so-called server log files, such as the name of the requested file, the date and time of the request, the transmitted data volume and the requesting provider. Such data is exclusively evaluated for ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and for improving our offer; conclusions regarding you as a person are not possible.

Data collection and usage for contract processing and when a customer account is opened
We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us during an ordering process, when you make contact to us (e.g. via the Contact form or by e-mail), of if you open a customer account. The type of data collected is apparent from the relevant input forms. We will use the data provided by you for contract processing and for handling your inquiries. Once the contract has been fully processed or your customer account has been deleted, your data will be blocked for continued use and deleted upon expiry of all retention periods required in accordance with tax and commercial laws, unless you have explicitly consented to the continued use of your data or we reserve the usage of data beyond this in the legally permissible scope and in compliance with the information provided by us below. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and may either be effected by a notification to the contact options given below or via a specifically provided function in the customer account.

Distribution of data for contract processing
For the purpose of contract processing, we will transmit your data to the shipping company in charge of delivery, insofar as this is required for delivering the ordered goods. According to the payment service provider selected by you in the ordering process, we will transmit payment data collected to the financial institution in charge of payment, as well as to payment service providers acting on our behalf and/or to the selected payment service for the purpose of handling payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers will collect such data themselves, if you open/have opened an account with them. In this case, you have to log in at the payment service provider during the ordering process. In this regard, the privacy statement of the relevant payment service provider is applicable.

Usage of data when registering for the e-mail newsletter
If you register for our newsletter, we will use the data required for this or provided separately by you in order to send you our e-mail newsletter in accordance with your approval at regular intervals. The deregistration from the newsletter is possible at any time and may either be effected by a notification to the contact options given below or via a specifically provided link in the newsletter.

Usage of data for postal advertising and your right of objection
In addition, we reserve the right to store your first and family name(s), your postal address, and - if we have received such additional data from you - your title, academic degree, your year of birth and the designation of your job, industry or business in summarized lists and use them for our own advertising purposes, e.g. for sending you interesting offers and information on our products by letter. You may object to the storage and usage of your data for these purposes at any time by notifying us via the contact options below.

Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analysis
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google (Universal) Analytics applies methods allowing for an analysis of your use of the website, e.g. by so-called "cookies", i.e. text files stored on your computer.
