Data protection declaration
Unless otherwise indicated below, the provision of your personal data is neither prescribed legally or contractually nor required for the formation of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Lack of provision has no consequences. This applies only if there is no indication otherwise in the processing operations below.
“Personal data” include all information that relates to identified or identifiable individuals.
Server log files
You can visit our website without providing information about yourself.
Every time our website is accessed, usage data are sent to us or to our web host / IT service provider by your internet browser and stored in log files (so called server log files). These stored data include e.g. the name of the page visited, the data and time of the visit, the IP address, the data volume transmitted and the provider making the request.
Processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 lit. f General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from legitimate interest in guaranteeing fault-free operation of our website and improving our service.
Collection and processing if the contact form is used
If the contact form is used, we collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) only to the extent provided by you. The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the data transmitted.
Processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent.
You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the legality of the processing undertaken on the basis of the consent before revocation. We use your e-mail address only to process your enquiry. Your data are then deleted unless you have agreed to further processing and use.

Collection, processing and disclosure of personal data in the case of orders
When an order is placed, we collect and process your personal data only if this is required in order to fulfil and process your order and to handle your enquiries. Provision of the data is required for formation of the contract. The result of lack of provision is that no contract can be formed.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and required for performance of a contract with you.
Your data are disclosed here for example to the shipping companies and drop shipping suppliers, payment service providers, order processing service suppliers and IT service providers chosen by you. In all cases, we comply strictly with the statutory requirements. The scope of the data transmission is limited to the minimum.
Use of the e-mail address for sending newsletters
Regardless of contract performance, we use your e-mail address exclusively for our own advertising purposes to send newsletters if you have explicitly agreed to this.
Processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing undertaken on the basis of the consent before revocation. Furthermore you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by notifying us. Your e-mail address will then be removed from the distribution list.
Your data are passed on to an e-mail marketing service provider here as part of the order processing. They are not passed on to other third parties.
Use of the e-mail address for sending direct advertising
We use your e-mail address, which we have received in the context of the sale of a product or service, for electronic transmission of advertising for our own products or services that are similar to those which you have already purchased from us, unless you have objected to this use.
Provision of the e-mail address is required for formation of the contract. The result of lack of provision is that no contract can be formed.
The processing is undertaken on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in direct advertising. You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by notifying us. The contact details to make the objection can be found in the publishing information. You can also use the link provided for this in the advertising e-mail. No costs are incurred for this other than the transmission costs at the basic rates.
