2 General use of the website

2.1 Access data

We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage behavior and your interaction with us and register data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about each access to our online offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name and URL of the retrieved file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval (HTTP response code), browser type and version, operating system, referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

We use this log data without assigning it to you personally or otherwise profiling it for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, securing and optimizing our online offering, but also to anonymously record the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent 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 allows us to provide personalized and location-based content and to analyze traffic, troubleshoot and improve our services. We reserve the right to review the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is required for security purposes or necessary for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After the order process has been cancelled or after payment has been received, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offense in connection with the use of our website. We also store the date of your last visit as part of your account (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links, etc.).

2.2 E-mail contact

If you contact us (e.g. by contact form or e-mail), we store your information for processing the request and in case follow-up questions arise. We only store and use further personal data if you consent to this or if this is legally permissible without special consent.

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies to your orders as well as to the customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

To protect your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures, which we constantly adapt to the state of the art.

We also do not guarantee that our service will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.

5 Automated decision making

Automated decision-making based on the personal data collected does not take place.

6 Disclosure of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries.

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), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.

In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing (“commissioned processing”), we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.

Data transfer to entities or persons outside the EU does not take place and is not planned.
