Data protection
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from third-party access.

The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).

2. Data collection on our website

Which data we collect and process from you
We collect different categories of personal data from you. Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person; A natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, is regarded as identifiable. Personal data includes, for example, information such as your name, address, telephone number and date of birth (if specified). Statistical information that cannot be directly or indirectly associated with you – such as the popularity of individual websites on our website or the number of users of a page – is not personal data. There is data collected directly and indirectly. In both cases, data is only collected to the extent necessary; the data will only be processed for the purposes mentioned in section 2. It is up to you to decide whether you want to send us data that optimizes the use of our services for you, but is not necessary for this.

In addition, data about you is indirectly collected when you use our services:
Technical connection data, e.g. the accessed page of our website, your IP address, date and time of access, the device used

Who has access to your data and to whom we transmit your data
a) Access

Access to your personal data stored by us is limited to our employees and the service providers, partner companies or suppliers commissioned by us, who have to deal with this personal data due to their tasks.

If third parties have access to your data, we have obtained your permission or there is a legal basis for this.

We also use service providers to provide services and process your data (including hosting, delivery of ordered goods, payment processing, sending letters or emails, and maintaining and analyzing databases or securing our web servers ). Insofar as these special provisions apply, we have carried them out for you in the following service. The service providers process the data only on our instructions and are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. All processors have been carefully selected and will only have access to your data to the extent and for the required period of time, which is necessary for the provision of the services or to the extent that you have consented to the data processing and use.

b) Transmission to third countries and legal basis

The servers of some of the service providers we use are located in the United States and other countries outside the European Union. Companies in these countries are subject to a data protection law that generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the member states of the European Union. Insofar as your data is processed in a country that does not have a recognized high level of data protection like the European Union, we use contractual regulations or other recognized instruments to ensure that your personal data are adequately protected. We expressly point this out to you again within the scope of the individual services.

Insofar as personal data is transferred to third countries, this takes place on the basis of the adequacy decision of the EU Commission on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR or the EU Standard Contract 2010 in accordance with Art. 46 Para. 2 lit. c GDPR in conjunction with the decision of the EU Commission of 05.02.2010 (2010/87 / EU) or in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

c) Transmission to law enforcement and law enforcement agencies

In exceptional cases, we transmit personal data to law enforcement and law enforcement agencies. This is done on the basis of corresponding legal obligations, e.g. from the Code of Criminal Procedure, the Tax Code, the Money Laundering Act or state police law.

Retention periods
We store personal data within the framework of the legal regulations or your consent.

We use the following criteria to determine the specific storage period:

We store the personal data until the purposes for which they were collected no longer apply (e.g. upon termination of a contractual relationship or through last activity, if there is no permanent contractual relationship, or in the event of your consent being withdrawn for the specific data processing).

Storage beyond this only takes place if

statutory retention requirements exist (e.g. according to AO and HGB);
the data is still needed to assert and exercise legal claims or to defend against legal claims, e.g. due to technological and forensic requirements to prevent attacks on our web servers and their tracking;
the deletion would be contrary to the legitimate interest of the data subjects;
or another exception according to Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR applies.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

Browser type and version
Operating system used
Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.

IP anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. 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 activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

5. Links
We check links that leave our website very carefully. Nevertheless, we do not assume any responsibility or liability for content on pages that are linked from this website or from another website.

6. Your rights
If the buyer no longer agrees to the storage of personal data or if the data has become incorrect, the seller will arrange for the data to be deleted, corrected or blocked in accordance with the statutory provisions. Upon written request, the buyer will receive free information about all personal data that the seller has stored about the buyer. If you have any questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data, for information, correction, blocking or deletion of data, please contact:
