- a) Session cookies
We use the so-called “cookies” on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage tools that are saved on your device through your browser. Through these cookies, we can collect specific information about you, regarding e.g. your browser, your location data, or your IP address.
This processing makes our site more efficient, secure, and user-friendly, as it allows us, for example to translate it into several languages or use the feature of the shopping cart.
The legal basis for the processing of data is Article 6, Paragraph 1. (B) of the GDPR, provided that the processing of these cookies is carried out for the purposes of concluding or executing a contract.
If the processing of the data does not serve the conclusion or execution of a contract, our legitimate interest is to improve the functionality of our website. In this case, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6, Paragraph 1, (F) of the GDPR.
Once you close your browser, these session cookies are deleted.

Our website may also use affiliate cookies, that are processed for the purposes of advertising, analysis or functionality of our website.
Please refer to the following information for details on the purposes and legal basis of third party cookie processing.
The data that you disclose for the use of goods and / or services will be processed by us for the execution of the contract and are therefore required. Contract execution and processing are not possible unless this data is provided.
The legal basis for processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 (B) GDPR.
We delete the data when the contract has been fully processed, but must observe the retention periods under tax and commercial law.
As part of contract processing, we pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of goods or to the financial service provider, insofar as this disclosure is necessary for the delivery of goods or for payment purposes.
The legal basis for sharing this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) of the GDPR.
- c) Possibility of data elimination
You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by changing your browser settings. You can also delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. However, the steps required for this depend on your current browser. In case of questions, use the help tool, follow the instructions on your browser or contact the manufacturer and Customer Service Team. Of course, in the case of the so-called flash cookies, processing cannot be avoided by modifying your browser settings. Instead, you need to change the Flash Player settings. The steps and actions required for this depend on the Flash player you are using. For any questions, please use the Flash Player help tool, follow the instructions provided or contact the manufacturer and Customer Service Team.
If you prevent or restrict cookies from being installed on your computer, the functions of the website may not be used in their entirety.
The data you transmit in order to use the full range of our goods and/or services will be processed by us for the purposes of executing the contract and are therefore necessary. The conclusion and execution of the contract are not possible without prior provision of your data.
The legal basis for the processing is Article 6, Paragraph 1, (B) of the GDPR.
We delete your data when the contract is executed, but we must comply with the retention periods set out by tax and commercial law.
In the context of contract execution, we transfer your data to the freight company that has undertaken the shipping of our goods or to the provider of financial services, to the extent that this transfer is necessary for the shipping of the goods or for the purposes of payment.
The legal basis for the transfer of data is then Article 6, Paragraph 1, (B) of the GDPR.

Once you have created a client account through our website, we will collect and store the data you entered during registration (ex. your name, physical address or email address) exclusively for contractual services, contract execution or customer service (ex. providing an overview of your previous orders or bookmarking). At the same time, we save the IP address, as well as the date and time of your registration. Of course, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.
In the context of the following registration process, your consent to the processing of the data is obtained with regards to this statement. The data collected by us will only be used to create a client account.
Provided that you consent to this processing, its legal basis is defined in Article 6, Paragraph 1, (A) of the GDPR.

Your data will be deleted, when your request has been answered, and provided that its deletion does not contradict any retention requirement, for example in the case of future processing of the contract.
Google Tag Manager
This site uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows us to manage website tags on an interface. Google Tag Manager only installs tags, i.e pieces of code used to categorize content and topics. On our website, tags are used, inter alia, to measure traffic and evaluate visitor behavior, as well as the impact of online ads and social media channels, and to control and optimize websites. No additional cookies are installed, and no personal information is stored via this service. Even if you have disabled the corresponding cookies, they will remain active in Google Tag Manager. More information about Google Tag Manager can be found here: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
To evaluate the impact of our ads on Google (“Google Ads”), this website uses the Google Conversion Tracking tool, an analysis service provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, “Google”) . When you are redirected to our site through a Google ad, Google Ads installs a cookie on your computer (“Conversion Cookie”). These cookies are disabled after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Their sole purpose is to count user clicks. This cookie records the total number of users who clicked on an ad and were redirected to our website. We do not collect any information that could lead to the identification of users. Through this conversion evaluation, Google collects personal data that is stored and processed on US servers. At present, no decision has been taken by the European Commission that is binding for the US or that enforces an adequate level of data protection. However, Google has committed to comply with the US Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield, which relates to the processing of personal data by EU Member States. More information can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=de&gl=de. You can also find more information about Google Data Protection at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de. If you do not wish to participate in the Tracking process, you can turn it off by using the Ads Preference Management Tool (https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de). You can also turn off Conversion-Tracking cookies and block them from the URL “googleadservices.com” in Settings. The legal basis for the corresponding processing of your data is Article 6, Paragraph 1, (F) of the GDPR (reconciliation of interests, based on a legitimate interest of online advertising conversion evaluation and therefore better control of advertising strategies).
Facebook Remarketing / Retargeting: These are Remarketing tags set by the social media website Facebook, (1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) and incorporated into our website. Remarketing tags create a direct link between your browser and your Facebook server when you visit our website. As a result, Facebook collects the information that you use, every time you visit our website with your IP address, therefore linking your visit to the respective user account. Our company can thus use your information to display Facebook ads. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the disclosed data or how it is used on Facebook. More information about this can be found in the Facebook Data Protection Statement at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If you would like to object to the collection of your data through Custom Audience, you can disable this feature on the following link: https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen.
Our site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”).
Through the EU-US Privacy Shield certification, https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active, Google guarantees that EU protection requirements will be met in the US.
Google Analytics is used to analyze user behavior on our site. The legal basis for the above is Article 6, Paragraph 1, (F) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and financial operation of our website.
Information regarding user behavior, such as IP address, location, time, or frequency of visits, is recorded to and stored on the Google server. Google Analytics is implemented through the anonymization feature, which provides an IP address shortcut within the EU or EEA.
The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to evaluate traffic and user activities on our site. This data may also be implemented in order to provide other services related to the use of our website, as well as the internet.
Google will not associate your IP address with any other data. More information on how to prevent data usage is available here: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners, e.g.
Google Fonts is used to display external fonts on our site. It is a service provided by Google LLC, (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”).
Google adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active, which guarantees that EU protection requirements will be met when processing data in the US.
Upon accessing our site, a connection to the Google server in the US is enabled for the purposes of displaying a font.
The legal basis is Article 6, Paragraph 1, (F) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization and financial operation of our website.
The Google connection that you generate when you access our site allows us to determine the webpage from which the request was sent and to which IP address the font is to be displayed.
Google provides more information on how to prevent data usage at the following address, https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated, https://policies.google.com/privacy.
