Privacy policy

1. General

1.1 What are personal data
Personal data is information that discloses or may disclose the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. As far as possible, we refrain from collecting personal data.

1.2 Handling of personal data
Personal data is used exclusively for the purpose of establishing the contract, formulating its content, implementing or handling the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I S. 1 b DSGVO).

In addition, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent to do so (Art. 6 I p. 1 a DSGVO) or if the processing of such data is necessary for our legitimate interests and provided that the balance of interests shows that there are no overriding interests, fundamental rights or fundamental freedoms that conflict with your interests (Art. 6 I p. 1 f DSGVO).

We may use contract processors to process your personal data, but will not pass on your personal data to third parties.

The data will only be passed on to the mail-order company commissioned with the delivery for the fulfilment of the contract, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. In order to process payments, the necessary payment data will be passed on to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, the commissioned and selected payment service provider.

The processing of your personal data takes place exclusively within the EU, unless otherwise stated below.

1.3 Usage data
General technical information is collected when visiting the website. These are the IP address used, time of day, duration of the visit, browser type and, if applicable, the originating page. This usage data is registered in a log file for technical reasons and can be used and stored for the purpose of statistical evaluation of this website. There is no link between this usage data and your other personal data.

1.4 Duration of storage
We store your personal data after the end of the purpose for which the data was collected, only as long as this is necessary due to legal (especially tax) regulations.
