PRIVACY POLICY DECLARATION

We are delighted that you are interested in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important for us. Below we provide detailed information on how your data will be handled.

The collection, processing and use of personal data

You can visit our website without providing us with any information about yourself. Even if you visit us via newsletter links, we will store only access data without any personal references, for example:

  • the name of your Internet service provider
  • the website from which you visited us
  • the name of the requested file

 

This data will be evaluated solely for the purpose of improving our offer and does not allow any inferences about you to be made.

We collect, store and process your data for the purpose of processing your purchase order and possible later handling of warranty claims, as well as for advertising purposes. Personal data will be collected if you voluntarily provide us with it in connection with your order for goods or when opening a customer account or registering for our newsletter.

The right to object to the use of data for the purposes of advertising, market research or opinion polling

You can of course object at any time to any further use of your data for advertising or marketing purposes, even if it is legally permissible without your consent (e.g. postal advertising), by sending a simple notification to us, without you incurring any costs for this other than the transmission costs set out in the basic tariffs. That notification will not act as consent given by you to the use of your data for advertising purposes.

Your personal data will be passed on to service providers engaged by us in the fulfilment of the order (carriers, logistic companies, banks).

Right to information

Under the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) you have the right to receive information, free of charge, on your stored data, as well as the right to have that data corrected, blocked or erased.

E-mail advertising (with newsletter subscription)

If you have separately subscribed to our newsletter, your e-mail address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe. You can unsubscribe at any time, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs set out in the basic tariffs.

The use of cookies

We use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and that store particular settings and data to be exchanged with our system via your browser. The storage of that data helps us to optimally design our website and makes if easier for you to use it. For example, certain information entered by you can be stored so that you do not have to keep re-entering it. Your browser enables you to set up restrictions on the use of cookies. However, this could lead to our service no longer functioning for you or functioning only to a limited extent. Cookies can also be erased in your browser.

Data security

In the ordering process your payment data will be transferred through the Internet in encrypted form. We protect our website and other systems using technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, accessing, alteration or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. You should always treat your access information confidentially and close the browser window when your communication with us has ended, particularly if you share the computer with other people.

Web tracking tool

Google Analytics with the "anonymize IP" extension

This website uses Google Analytics for web analysis. This is a service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. The information generated by the cookies on your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the US Safe Harbor Agreement and is registered with the Safe Harbor programme of the US Department of Commerce. Google will use that information to assess your use of the website, to draw up reports on the website activities for us and to provide other services to us associated with the use of the website and the use of the Internet. Google may also transfer that information to third parties, if it is required by law or if third parties process that data on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, please note that in that case it may not be possible to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. If you do not wish information on your visit to our website to be transmitted to Google Analytics, you can install a “deactivation add-on” for your browser. We have also entered settings by which Google Analytics deletes the last part of the IP addresses of visitors to our website. That means that also in this context we will not come into possession of data that allows us to make inferences regarding you.
