Thank you for visiting our online shop. Protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find extensive information about how we handle your data.


1. Access data and hosting

You may visit our website without revealing any personal information. With every visit on the website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request.

These access data are analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit on our website.

Data are also processed by a third-party provider that we have engaged to render hosting and website presentation services on our behalf. This provider processes on its servers all data that are collected in the manner specified below when you visit our website or fill in forms made available for this purpose in our online shop. Data are processed on other servers only in the scope described herein. This service provider is based in an EU or EEA member state.


2. Data collection and use for processing the contract

We collect personal data that you voluntarily submit to us when you place an order or contact us (e.g. via contact form or by e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such because we absolutely need those data to perform the contract or process your contact request and you would otherwise not be able to complete your order or send the contact request. It is evident in each input form what data are collected. We use the data that you disclose to us to perform the contract and process your enquiries according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b GDPR. As far as you have given your consent according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a GDPR by creating your customer account, we use your data for the purpose of opening the customer account.

Upon completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, any further processing of your data will be restricted and your data will be deleted upon expiry of the retention period applicable under relevant regulations, unless you expressly consent to the further use of your data or we reserve the right to further use your personal data in the scope and manner permitted by law, of which we inform you in this policy. Your customer account can be deleted at any time. For this purpose, you can either send a message to the contact option specified below or use the relevant function available in the customer account.


3. Transfer of data

We disclose your data to the shipping company in the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b GDPR. Depending on the payment service provider you have selected during the ordering process, we disclose the payment details collected for order processing purposes to the bank commissioned to handle the payment and, as the case may be, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. Some of those data are collected by the selected payment service providers themselves if you open an account with them. In such a case, during the ordering process, you must log in with your payment service provider using your access data. In this respect, the privacy policy of the relevant payment service provider applies.

Disclosure of data to a shipping provider
If, when or after placing your order, you have given your express consent to us doing so, we disclose your e-mail address and phone number to the selected shipping provider based on that consent according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a GDPR, in order to enable the shipping provider to contact you to advise you of the delivery or agree with you the delivery details.

You may revoke your consent at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below or by directly notifying the shipping provider at the contact address specified below. After you revoke your consent, we will delete the data disclosed for this purpose, unless you expressly consent to the further use of your data or we reserve the right to further use your personal data in the scope and manner permitted by the law, of which we inform you in this policy.

To check the cookie storage period, you can use the overview function in the cookie settings of your web browser.

Use of Google Analytics for web analytics
For the purpose of website analytics, this website uses Google Analytics. This serves the protection of our legitimate interests in the optimised presentation of our offer according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. Google Analytics uses methods, like e.g. cookies, that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information collected automatically by cookies about your use of this website are as a rule transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. At the same time, as IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, the IP address will be shortened before being transmitted within the area of member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Generally, Google does not associate the anonymised IP address, transmitted from your browser through Google Analytics, with any other data held by Google. After the end of the use of Google Analytics by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted.

Use of Google Ads Conversion Tracking
Google Ads Conversion Tracking is a service operated by Google. If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. This serves the protection of our legitimate interests in the optimised presentation of our offer according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. Every Google Ads customer receives a separate cookie. Therefore, it is not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information which could be used to personally identify users. After the end of the use of Google Ads Conversion Tracking by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted.
