The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. For this reason, we process your data exclusively on the basis of legal provisions (GDPR, Telecommunications Act 2003). This data protection information explains the most important aspects of data processing on our website.
Contact with us
If you contact us using the form on the website or by email, the data you provide will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of any follow-up questions.
Encryption and data security
In order to prevent loss or misuse of the data stored with us, we take extensive technical and operational security precautions, which are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.
Every data transmission is encrypted. Encryption ensures that no information can be passed on to unauthorised third parties. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the status or address bar of your browser.
Data transfer for the fulfilment of the contract
For the fulfilment of the contract, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. For the processing of payments, we pass on the payment data required for this to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us.
The data stored in our cookies will not be linked to your personal data (name, address etc.). Without your explicit consent, we will not use the tracking tools to unnoticeably:
- Collect personal data about you
- Pass on such data to third-party providers and marketing platforms
- Link the data to your personal data (name, address etc.).

Remarketing tags of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are integrated on our pages.

As the provider of the pages, we would like to point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook.
