Privacy policy


Unless otherwise stated below, the provision of your personal data is not required by law or contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Non-provision of the data has no consequences. This applies only insofar as no other information is given in the following processing procedures.


"Personal data" means all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.


Server log files

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever you access our website, usage data is transmitted to us or our web host / IT service provider by your Internet browser and stored in log files (so-called server log files). These stored data include, 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 DSGVO out of our predominant legitimate interest in ensuring the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offer.


Orders



Collection, processing and transfer of personal data for orders

When you place an order, we collect and process your personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfil and process your order and to deal with 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 based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you.
Your data will be passed on, for example, to the mail-order companies and dropshipping providers you have chosen, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers. In all cases we strictly observe the legal requirements. The extent of the data transfer is limited to a minimum.


Contact newsletter


Collection and processing when using the contact form

When using the contact form, we only collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) to the extent that you have provided it. The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message you agree to the processing of the transmitted data. The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO with your consent.
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. We will only use your e-mail address to process your request. Your data will then be deleted, unless you have agreed to further processing and use.

Use of the e-mail address for the sending of newsletters

We use your e-mail address, regardless of the contract execution, exclusively for our own advertising purposes for newsletter dispatch, provided you have expressly agreed to this. The processing is carried out on the basis of article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DSGVO with your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent until revocation. To do so, 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 will then be passed on to a service provider for e-mail marketing within the scope of order processing. Your data will not be passed on to other third parties.

Your data will be transferred to a third country for which an adequacy decision of the European Commission exists.

Use of Google Analytics

We use the web analysis service Google Analytics of Google LLC on our website. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").
Insofar as you have your habitual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the person responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google which is responsible for processing your data and for ensuring compliance with the applicable data protection laws.
The data processing serves the purpose of analysing this website and its visitors.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation is activated on this website.

Plug-ins

Use of social plug-ins via "Shariff
We use social networking plug-ins on our website. To keep you in control of your information, we use the privacy safe "Shariff" buttons.
No links to the social network servers will be created without your explicit consent and consequently no data will be transmitted.
"Shariff" is a development of the specialists of the computer magazine c't. It allows more privacy on the net and replaces the usual "Share" buttons of social networks. More information about the Shariff project can be found at https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html.
If you click on the buttons, a pop-up window appears where you can log in with your data from the respective provider. Only after this active login by you will a direct connection to the social networks be established.
With your login you give your consent to the transfer of your data to the respective social media provider. In doing so, both your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited will be transmitted. If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the information collected is also assigned to your corresponding profiles. You can only prevent this assignment by logging out of your social media accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons. The social networks listed below are connected using the "Shariff" function.
You will find more detailed information on the scope and purpose of the collection and use of the data as well as on your rights in this regard and possibilities for protecting your privacy in the linked data protection notices of the providers.

Your data may also be transferred to the USA. Google has certified itself in accordance with the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and has thus undertaken to comply with the European data protection guidelines.
