Our legitimate interest in this case is the reliable and error-free functioning of our website. This data will not be processed in any other way.

2.2 Collection of personal data

2.2.1 Data collection and processing when opening a customer account and during contract processing

2.3 Transfer of data to third parties for the purpose of fulfilling the contract

2.3.1 Passing on to shipping service providers in general and to credit institutions
For payment transactions and, if applicable, for the delivery of goods, we pass on personal data to service providers (third parties) to the required minimum extent, insofar as this is necessary for the execution of the contract.

If we pass on your data to a shipping service provider (such as DHL, DPD, UPS Hermes or GLS), the legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO), which enables us to process the data if this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you or for the implementation of a pre-contractual measure.

If we pass on your payment data to the commissioned credit institution, the legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which enables us to process the data if this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you or for the implementation of a pre-contractual measure.

2.3.2 Transfer of email address and/or telephone number to shipping service providers

2.3.2.1 DPD
If your goods are delivered by the shipping service provider DPD, and you have expressly agreed in the ordering process that your e-mail address and/or telephone number may be passed on, this will be passed on to DPD (DPD Deutschland GmbH, Wailandtstraße 1, 63741 Aschaffenburg) to announce the delivery or to agree the delivery date. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which allows us to process the data if you have consented to the processing. If you do not consent to the forwarding of your email address, the data will be delivered in accordance with the conditions of paragraph 2.3.1 of this privacy policy. An announcement of the delivery, or a coordination of the delivery date, by DPD is then not possible.

Any consent given for the use of data can be revoked at any time in the future. If you wish to do so, please contact the person responsible for data processing (this person is named under point 1 of this data protection declaration), or the shipping service provider directly.

2.3.3 Payment service provider
On our website you have the choice between different payment service providers. In the following, we inform you about which data will be passed on and on the basis of which legal situation this is done:

2.3.3.1 PayPal/PayPal Plus
If you choose this payment service provider, the data necessary for payment will be passed on to PayPal (PayPal Europe, S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg). The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 letter a of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which allows us to process the data if you have consented to the processing, and Art. 6 para. 1 letter b of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which allows us to process the data if this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you or to carry out a pre-contractual measure. You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent until revocation.

If you choose the PayPal Plus payment methods "credit card", "invoice", "direct debit" or "PayPal installment payment", PayPal reserves the right to obtain credit information about you.  A credit report can contain scoring values (=probability values). The so-called scoring values have their basis in a scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedure. Your address data is also (but not exclusively) included in the calculation of the score values.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which allows data to be processed if there is a legitimate interest. The legitimate interest in this case is to establish your identity or solvency.

You can object to the processing of your personal data at any time. However, PayPal may still be entitled to process, use and transfer your personal data if this is necessary for PayPal's contractual handling of payments, if it is required by law, or if it is demanded by a court or an authority.

If you wish to object to the use of your data or wish to notify us of any changes to the data stored, you can contact PayPal directly. At the following internet address you will also find further information about PayPal's privacy policy:

2.3.3.2 Mollie B.V. ( VISA, MASTERCARD, MAESTRO, iDEAL, Belfius)
If you choose this payment service provider, the data required for payment will be forwarded to Mollie (Mollie B.V., Luise-Ullrich-Straße 14, 80636 München, Germany). The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which enables us to process the data if you have consented to the processing, and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which enables us to process the data if this is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or for the implementation of a pre-contractual measure. You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

3.1 Cookies that are set by our website
Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly for you. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. For example, to store and transmit the items in your shopping cart or your login information. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies", which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Some cookies remain stored on your device and enable recognition the next time you visit the site (so-called persistent cookies). These are automatically deleted after a specified period of time. You can find more detailed information on individual cookies in the settings of your browser.

The legal basis for data processing is either Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO), which allows us to process the data if you have consented to the processing, or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which allows us to process the data if this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you or for the implementation of a pre-contractual measure, or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which allows us to process the data in the event of a legitimate interest. In this case, our legitimate interest is to offer you a technically error-free and functionally optimised website.

3.3 Web Analysis/Marketing

3.3.1 Google Analytics
We use the analysis tool Google Analytics on our website. The provider of this analysis tool is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and thus enable an analysis of your use of the website. This analysis data is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which enables us to process the data in case of a legitimate interest. In this case, our legitimate interest is to analyse user behaviour in order to optimise our offer and advertising.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to guarantee an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). By activating IP anonymisation, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide us with further services related to the use of the website and the Internet.

The IP address transmitted by your internet browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your internet browser settings accordingly. However, we would like to expressly point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

You can prevent data collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link and downloading the tool offered there: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

You can also prevent data collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link, which sets an optout cookie that prevents the collection of your data during future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics.

We use Google AdWords Remarketing on our website. This function is used to advertise our website in Google search results and on third-party websites. The provider of this analysis tool is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google sets a cookie in the browser of your device, which then enables interest-based advertising. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which enables us to process data in the event of a legitimate interest. Our legitimate interest in this case is the optimal marketing of our website.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting your internet browser settings accordingly. However, we would like to expressly point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

You can permanently deactivate the setting of cookies for advertisements by downloading and installing the following browser plugin:

4.) How is the data backed up?

The transmission of personal data is exclusively encrypted via an SSL or TLS connection. This applies to messages via our contact function as well as to data concerning your order and payment transactions. Through the encryption your sensitive personal data cannot be intercepted and viewed by unauthorized third parties. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser begins with "https://" (and by the lock symbol in the browser line).

The data stored in the systems of our website are secured by passwords and cannot be viewed by unauthorised third parties.

The transmission of data on the Internet, for example when sending an email, is not 100% secure and may in some cases have security gaps.

5.) How long is the personal data stored?

How long your personal data is stored by us sometimes depends on the respective legal retention period. In the case of messages via our contact function and/or via our e-mail address, your data will be deleted after completion of processing, unless we have a justified interest in continuing the storage.

The retention periods under commercial and tax law are 10 years from the end of the calendar year in which the data was collected. After expiry of the periods, the data is regularly deleted, unless it is still required for initiation or contract fulfilment or we have a justified interest in continuing storage.

6.) What rights do you have vis-à-vis the data controller?

In the following, we list the rights you have in accordance with the basic data protection regulation (DSGVO) in relation to the person responsible for data processing. The person responsible is named under point 1 of this data protection declaration.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you are being transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 of the Basic Regulation on Data Protection (DSGVO) in connection with the transfer.

6.2 Your right of rectification under Article 16 of the Basic Regulation on Data Protection (DSGVO)

6.4 Your right to restrict processing in accordance with Article 18 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)
You have the right to ask the data controller to limit the processing, as long as the accuracy of the personal data concerning you is verified, you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead ask for the limitation of the use of the personal data, the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or if you have lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.

6.5 Your right to information pursuant to Art. 19 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)
If you have asserted the right to rectify, erase or limit the processing vis-à-vis the data controller, the data controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or limitation of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right vis-à-vis the controller to be informed of these recipients.

6.6 Your right to data transferability in accordance with Art. 20 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)
They shall have the right to obtain the personal data concerning them which they have supplied to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format and the right to have such data communicated to another data controller without interference from the data controller to whom the personal data have been supplied, in so far as this is technically feasible.

This right of data transferability shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

The right to data portability shall not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

6.7 Your right to revoke any declarations of consent granted in accordance with Art. 77 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)
You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time with effect for the future.

The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

6.8. The Automated Decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has legal effect on you or significantly affects you in a similar manner. This shall not apply if the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller, is authorised by European Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject and such law contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests or is taken with your explicit consent.

However, such decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DPA, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DPA applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in 6.8.1 and 6.8.3, the data controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to express his point of view and to contest the decision.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the DPA.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).
