DECLARATION OF PROTECTION ***Name and address of the data controller

The data controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

When you call up our website, we use the widespread SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is encrypted by the closed key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

Cookies

This website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are text files that explicitly do not contain any personal data and that are placed on your computer and stored by the browser you are using. By using cookies, our systems can recognize your browser and offer you additional useful information. Insofar as personal data is also processed by individual cookies used by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO either for the performance of the contract or in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the visit to this website operated by us. However, you can set up the configuration of your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is created. For details, please refer to the description of the browser you are using. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website.

Google Analytics

This website uses "Google Analytics". This is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States . If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google Inc. within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google Inc. server in the United States and then subsequently shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google Inc. will evaluate this collected information for the purpose of analysing the usage behaviour of this website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be linked to any other data held by Google Inc. If you do not agree, you can prevent the storage of cookies by making a setting in your respective browser software. In this case, however, it cannot be ruled out that not all functions of this Internet site can be used. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website, including your IP address, by Google Inc. by downloading and installing the browser add-on available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) to deactivate "Google Analytics". With the help of this browser add-on to disable Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js), visitors to the website can prevent Google Analytics from using their data. In this respect, too, it cannot be ruled out that not all functions of this website can be used when using this browser plug-in.

Data processing in the context of registration on our website

The data subject has the opportunity to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller in the process results from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider of the data subject, the date as well as the time of registration are furthermore stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify criminal offences that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the data controller. As a matter of principle, this data will not be disclosed to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to disclose it or the disclosure serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data base of the controller.

The controller shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information on what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. All employees of the controller are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

Data processing in the context of order processing

If the delivery is carried out by one or more transport companies, we will pass on your e-mail address to them in accordance with Article 6 (1) a DSGVO before the delivery of the goods if you have given your express consent to this. Otherwise, in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, we will only pass on the name of the recipient and the delivery address to the transport company or companies, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods. Any consent given can be revoked at any time with effect for the future vis-à-vis the responsible person named above or vis-à-vis the transport service provider(s).
