Our website may be used without entering personal information. Different rules may apply to certain services on our site, however, and are explained separately below. We collect personal information from you (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number, etc.) in accordance with the provisions of German data protection statutes. Information is considered personal if it can be associated exclusively to a specific natural person. The legal framework for data protection may be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent and purpose for collecting, using and processing personal information by the provider.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.
Personal data is only collected for the purposes of the order, placement of orders, opening a customer account or registering for a newsletter. Without your express consent, personal information provided will only be used for contract execution or to process your enquiry.
As part of the contract processing procedure, your personal data will be passed onto the relevant delivery transport company or to relevant financial services providers insofar as this is necessary for the delivery or payment of the goods.
Our website makes use of so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer.
These are cookies which, during your visit to our website, permit our website to memorise your visit over several pages (e.g. when going through the various steps of the order process, where the entries made during previous steps need to be carried over). This is particularly necessary in order to use the basket function on our website. These cookies are deleted when you close your browser. No personal data are recorded in this process.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.
For communication and safety reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected:
- type and version of the browser you use
- operating system
- websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL)
- websites that you visit
- date and time out of your visit
- your Internet Protokocol (IP) address
After a maximum of seven days, the data will be anonymised by shortening the IP address to the domain level to make it no longer possible, or disproportionately difficult, to be able to make conclusions about an identified or identifiable natural person. The anonymised data will be solely processed for ‘statistical purposes’ to enable us to optimise our Internet site and our offers.
We offer you the opportunity to sign up for the purpose of a customer account on our website. The information entered when signing up, as shown in the registration form is collected and stored solely for use by our website. None of this information is transferred to third parties with the exception due to accounting purposes . Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website. When signing up for our website, we also store your IP address and the date and time you registered. This serves to protect us in the event a third party improperly and without your knowledge makes use of your data to sign up for our site. None of this information is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website.
You can end the registry at any time for the future through a message to us.
We electronically collect and process your application data for the purpose of completing the application process. If your application results in the conclusion of an employment contract, the data collected from you may be stored in your personnel file for purposes of normal organizational and administrative processes in compliance with appropriate legal requirements.
Upon rejection of your application, data you have provided is automatically deleted two months after notification of rejection. This does not apply in such instances where, due to legal requirements (such as the burden of proof obligation stipulated in the Equal Treatment Act) a longer storage period is necessitated or when you expressly agreed to have your data stored for a longer period in our database of prospective applicants.
On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by email and/or by using a contact form. In such event, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties.

On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
