We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision or billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After cancellation of the order process or when payment has been received, we will delete the IP address if this is no longer required for security purposes.
We use so-called session cookies to optimize our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and stored temporarily on your hard drive. This file contains a so-called session ID, with which you can assign various requests of your browser to the shared session. This will allow your computer to be recognized when you return to the website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They are used, for example, to enable you to use the shopping basket function across several pages.
We also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your terminal device) to a small extent, which remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website. These cookies are stored on your hard disk and are deleted automatically after the specified time. Their life span is 1 month to 3 years. This helps us to present our services to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the website that is specifically tailored to your interests.
Your name, IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be assigned to you will not be placed in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymous information, for example about which pages of our shop have been visited, which products have been viewed, etc. You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide in individual cases whether you want to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, or that cookies are completely prevented. This may restrict the functionality of the website.
We do not create user profiles from your personal data, which are collected through technically necessary cookies.
When you visit our website, you will be informed by an information banner about the use of analysis and marketing cookies and asked for your consent to the processing of your personal data for these purposes. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 a GDPR.

2.4 Data for the fulfillment of our contractual obligations
We process personal data that we need to fulfill our contractual obligations, such as name, address, e-mail address, ordered products, billing and payment data. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.
The data will be deleted after expiry of the warranty periods and statutory retention periods. Data associated with a user account (see below) will always be retained for the duration of the account.
The legal basis for the processing of these data is Art. 6 (1 b) GDPR, because these data are required to fulfill our contractual obligations towards you.
2.5 Payment services and payment procedures
2.6 User account
You can create a user account on our website. If you wish to do so, we need the personal data requested during the login. When logging in later, only your e-mail address or user name and the password you have chosen are required.
In case of a new registration we collect master data (e.g. name, address), communication data (e.g. e-mail address) and payment data (bank details) as well as access data (user name and password).
To ensure your proper registration and to prevent unauthorized registrations by third parties, you will receive an activation link by e-mail after registration to activate your account. Only after successful registration we store the data transmitted by you in our system permanently.

A message in text form to the contact data (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) mentioned under point 1 is sufficient for this. We will then delete your stored personal data, provided we do not have to store them for the processing of orders or due to statutory retention obligations.
The legal basis for the processing of these data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1 a) GDPR.
To register for the newsletter, the data requested in the registration process are required. The registration for the newsletter is logged. After registration you will receive a message asking you to confirm your registration ("double opt-in").
You can withdraw your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus cancel the newsletter.
We store the registration data as long as it is required for sending the newsletter. We store the logging of the registration and the shipping address as long as there is an interest in proof of the originally given consent.
Legal basis for sending the newsletter is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1 a) in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with § 7 para. 2 no. 3 UWG (German Law against Unfair Competition). Legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest in proving that the dispatch was carried out with your consent.
You can cancel your registration at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A message in text form to the contact data (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) mentioned under point 1 is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find a link to unsubscribe in every e-mail.

A message in text form to the contact data (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) mentioned under point 1 is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find a link to unsubscribe in every e-mail.
Legal basis for this is the legal permission according to Art. 6 (1 f) GDPR in conjunction with § 7 para. 3 UWG (German Law against Unfair Competition).

2.10 E-mail contact
If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we will process your details to process your inquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
If the data processing takes place to implement steps prior to entering into a contract which take place at your inquiry or, if you are already our customer, for the execution of the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1 b) GDPR.
We will only process further personal data if you give your consent (Art. 6 (1 a) GDPR) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 (1 f ) GDPR). For example, we have a legitimate interest in replying to your e-mail.

If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), such personal data are only received to the extent to which the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("order processing"), we contractually oblige contractors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
A data transfer to places or persons outside the EU and outside the case mentioned in this declaration in clause 4 does not take place and is not planned.
