We are prepared to participate in an out-of-court conciliation procedure before a consumer conciliation body.
Alternative dispute resolution pursuant to Art. 14 (1) ODR-VO and § 36 VSBG:
The European Commission is providing an online dispute resolution (OS) platform, which can be found at https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
Acquisition of general information/storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We only store access data in so-called server log files, such as the name of the requested file, date and time of retrieval, transferred data volume, type of web browser, the operating system used, domain names and the requesting provider. These data are evaluated exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and do not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.
Data collection and use for contract processing and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data, such as name, address, contact and communication data such as telephone number and e-mail address, if you voluntarily provide them to us in connection with your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you to process contracts and your inquiries. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the storage periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you below. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can take place either via a message to the contact possibility described below or via a function intended for it in the customer account.
Provision of chargeable services
We are asked for additional data on the provision of chargeable services, e.g. payment details.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
Data transfer for contract fulfillment
For the fulfillment of the contract, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, as far as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the order process, we pass on the payment data collected for the processing of payments to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to payment service providers commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies in this respect.
Use of data when registering for the e-mail newsletter
If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the data required for this purpose or provided separately by you in order to send you our e-mail newsletter regularly on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The newsletter will be sent by the provider Mailchimp.
We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons, also known as tracking pixels. These are one-pixel image files that link to our website and thus enable us to evaluate your user behaviour. This is done by collecting data and web beacons that are assigned to your e-mail address and linked to your own ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID.
We use the data obtained in this way to create a user profile so that we can provide you with the newsletter tailored to your interests. We record when you read our newsletters, which links you click in them and infer your personal interests from this. We link this data with the actions you take on our website.
The information collected in this way is stored by the newsletter provider on its server in the USA. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by informing us at email@example.com .
For an effective registration, we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data will not be collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter.
Use of data for postal advertising and your right of objection.
In addition, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your postal address and – if we have received this additional information from you within the scope of the contractual relationship – your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business name in combined lists and to use them for our own advertising purposes, e.g. for sending interesting offers and information on our products by post. You can object to the storage and use of your data for these purposes at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below.
Credit assessment and scoring
If we make advance payments, e.g. when purchasing on the account, we reserve the right to obtain identity and credit information from specialized service providers (credit agencies) in order to safeguard our legitimate interests. To this end, we transfer your personal data required for a credit assessment to the following company(s):
SCHUFA Holding AG
Cormorant way 5
The credit information can contain probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedures and in the calculation of which address data, among other things, are included. We use the information received on the statistical probability of non-payment for a balanced decision on the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship. Your interests worthy of protection will be taken into account in accordance with the legal provisions.
In order to make your visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal and enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies).
This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system via your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.
Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analysis
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (www.google.de), a company of Alphabet Inc. Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that enable an analysis of your use of the website, such as “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer. The information generated by your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. By activating IP anonymization on this website, the IP address is reduced prior to transmission within the Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website use and Internet use. The anonymous IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
As an alternative to the browser plugin, you can click this link to prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website in the future. An opt-out cookie is stored on your mobile device. If you delete your cookies, you must click the link again.
Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to present our contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
Facebook Inc. (1601 p. California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)
Pinterest Inc, 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Pinterest”)
Youtube Video Plugins
On some of our websites, we embed YouTube videos. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. Youtube is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to Youtube servers is established. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to reckon with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.
For videos from Youtube, which are integrated on our site, the extended data protection setting is activated. This means that no information from website visitors is collected and stored on YouTube unless they play the video.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers as well as your relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of Google https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
Integration of the Trust badge Trusted Shop
The Trusted Shops Trust Badge is integrated on this website to display our Trusted Shops seal of approval and the possibly collected evaluations as well as to offer the Trusted Shops products to buyers after an order.
This serves the protection of our legitimate interests in optimal marketing by enabling a safe purchase in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offer of the Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne. The trust badge is provided by a CDN provider (Content-Delivery-Network) as part of order processing. The Trusted Shops GmbH uses also Dienstleister from the USA. An appropriate level of data protection is ensured. You can find further information on data protection at Trusted Shops GmbH here.
When the Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, date and time of the call, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. Individual access data are stored in a secure database for the analysis of security problems. The log files are automatically deleted 90 days after creation at the latest.
Further personal data is transferred to Trusted Shops GmbH if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or if you have already registered for use. The contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies. For this, an automatic collection of personal data takes place from the order data. Whether you as a buyer are already registered for product use is automatically checked on the basis of a neutral parameter, the e-mail address hashed by cryptological one-way function. The e-mail address is converted into this hash value, which cannot be decoded for Trusted Shops, before transmission. After checking for a match, the parameter is automatically deleted.
This is necessary for the fulfillment of our and Trusted Shops’ predominantly legitimate interests in the provision of the buyer protection linked to the specific order and the transactional valuation services in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Further details, including objections, can be found in the Trusted Shops data protection declaration linked above and in the Trustbadge.
Reminder by e-mail
If you have given us your explicit consent to this during or after your order by activating an appropriate checkbox or clicking a button provided for this purpose, we will use your e-mail address for the reminder to submit an evaluation of your order via the evaluation system used by us. This consent can be revoked at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below.
If users leave comments in the blog, the time of their creation and the username previously chosen by the website visitor are stored in addition to this information. This serves our security since we can be prosecuted for illegal contents on our web page, even if these were provided by users.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you have provided will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Adwords sets a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot, therefore, be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this – for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies are blocked by the “googleleadservices.com” domain.
Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A “cookie” is stored in the visitor’s browser, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to Google’s advertising network. These pages may contain advertisements that refer to content that the visitor has previously viewed on websites that use Google’s remarketing feature.
Right to information and contact possibility
You have a right to free information about your personal data stored by us and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business transactions, deletion of this data. If you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, information, correction, blocking or deletion of data as well as revocation of consent given or objection to a specific use of data, please contact us directly via the contact data at the bottom or in our imprint.
To ensure that data can be locked at any time, this data must be kept in a lock file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of the data, as far as no legal archiving obligation exists. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request.
You can make changes or withdraw your consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.
Changes to our data protection regulations
We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply for your next visit.
