We use personal data for the purpose of operating the website. Our website contains links to other providers for whom this declaration is not valid.
The hosting services used by us serve the provision of the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services as well as technical maintenance services which we use for the purpose of operating the website.
In doing so, we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website on the basis of our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR in connection with Art. 28 GDPR.
3.2 Access data
We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage patterns and your interaction with us, and we register information about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about each access to our website (so-called server log files). This includes access data:
We use this log data without allocation to your person or other profiling for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, security and optimisation of our website, but also for anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and for the scope and type of use of our website and services, as well as for billing purposes to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information enables us to provide personalized and location-based content and analyze traffic, troubleshoot and correct errors, and improve our services.
This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR.
We reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offence in connection with the use of our website.
We use so-called session cookies to optimize our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and stored temporarily on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the joint session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They serve, for example, to prevent the cookie banner from being displayed again.
To a small extent, we also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your terminal device) that remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are stored on your hard drive and are deleted automatically after the specified time. Their lifespan is 1 month to 10 years. This enables us to present our services to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.
The following data and information are stored in the cookies:
When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, your IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you will not be placed in the cookie. On the basis of cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymised information.
You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance when cookies are set and can decide on a case-by-case basis whether you wish to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, or whether cookies should be prevented completely. This may limit the functionality of the website.
3.4 Data to fulfil our contractual obligations
We process personal data that we need to fulfil our contractual obligations, such as name, address, e-mail address, products ordered, invoice and payment data. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.
The data will be deleted after the warranty periods and statutory retention periods have expired. Data linked to a user account (see below) will in any case be retained for the duration of the account's management.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) GDPR, because this data is required so that we can fulfil our contractual obligations towards you.
The legal basis for processing this data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) GDPR.
3.5 Establishing contact
When you contact us (e.g. by e-mail), we process your information to process the inquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
If the data processing is carried out to carry out pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request, or, if you are already our customer, to carry out the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) GDPR.
We only process further personal data if you consent to this (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) GDPR) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR). A legitimate interest lies, for example, in replying to your e-mail.

For the statistical evaluation of our website we use the free web analysis software AWstats. The tool is used to evaluate log files that web servers create on the basis of visitor requests. The program does not use any cookie files for the evaluation. The statistical analysis takes place via the log files, which also contain IP addresses. Unlike other statistical programs, AWstats does not transmit any data to an external server. The program is installed on our hosting package with server in Germany. This also avoids the transfer of data abroad. The program is used by us exclusively to improve our website.
Unless specifically stated, we will only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.
In some cases, the law provides for the retention of personal data, for example in tax or commercial law. In these cases, the data is only stored by us for these legal purposes, but is not processed elsewhere and deleted after the legal retention period has expired.

Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies to all offered forms. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 GDPR, which we continually adapt to the state of the art.
Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our services will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are regularly and carefully backed up.
In principle, we use your personal data only within our company.
If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), these personal data will only be provided to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of the data processing ("order processing"), we contractually oblige order processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the data protection laws and to guarantee the protection of the rights of the person concerned.
Data will not and will not be transferred to entities or persons outside the EU outside the cases referred to in paragraphs 5 and 6 of this statement.
