Privacy Policy and Your Rights

The protection of your personal data is of particular importance to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (GDPR, Data Protection Act, Telecommunications Act 2003). In this data protection information we provide you with information on the most important aspects of data processing within the scope of our website.

Contact with us: If you contact us via the website or by email, the data you provide will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

For which purposes and on which legal basis are your personal data processed? We use the personal data that you provide only to the extent that it is necessary to fulfil the respective purpose, e.g.

// to fulfil a contract

// to fulfil a legal requirement

// for the technical performance of our services

// to fulfil an application case

// to send informational material and advertisments

// to answer a question that you have sent us.

The duration of the data processing also particularly depends on the legal retention periods and the limitation periods for potential legal claims.

Disclosure of personal data

Within the scope of order/contract fulfilment, your personal data may be passed on to the following parties:

// authorities

// public departments

// IT service providers

// banks/insurance companies

// software manufacturers

// service providers

In all other cases, data will not be disclosed without your express consent.

Is your personal data transmitted to a third country?

As a rule, our external service providers process your personal data within the European Union (EU) or the States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). However, in the event that your personal data is transferred to and processed by a service provider located in a third country, the processor must ensure it is protected through appropriate guarantees, such as the conclusion of standard data protection clauses or the EU-US Privacy Shield.

These processors are:


Google Analytics

Data storage

The following data will also be stored by us for the purpose of processing contracts: address data, clerical data, bank data, contact data, business transaction data. The data provided by you is required for the fulfilment of the contract and/or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. We cannot conclude a contract with you without this data. Data transmission to third parties does not take place, with the exception of the transmission of credit card data to the processing bank institutes/payment service providers for the purpose of debiting the purchase price, to the transport company/shipping company commissioned by us for the delivery of the goods or to our accountant for the fulfilment of our tax obligations.

Following the completion of the purchasing/sale process, the data stored by us will be deleted. If a contract is concluded, all data from the contractual relationship will be stored until the end of the statutory retention period (7 years). The data relating to the name, address, purchased goods and date of purchase are stored beyond this period until the end date of product liability (10 years). Data processing is carried out on the basis of the statutory provisions of Art. 96 Para. 3 Data Protection Act and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit a (consent) and/or lit b (necessary for contract fulfilment) of the GDPR.

We only store and process your data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the relevant purpose.
