Data privacy

We are pleased about your interest in our company, products and services and would like you to feel secure while visiting our Internet pages with regard to the protection of your personal data. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Compliance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act is a matter of course for us.

We would like you to know when we collect what data and how we use it. We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that regulations on data protection are respected both by us and external service providers commissioned by us.

Handling of personal data within data protection

Personal data is information about your identity. This includes, for example, information such as name, address, telephone number, and email address. It is not necessary for you to disclose personal data to use our website. In certain cases, however, we will need your name and address or other details so that we may provide the services you desire.

The same applies, for example, for the dispatch of information material and ordered goods, or answering individual questions. Where data-collection is required, we will point it out to you accordingly. In addition, we only store and process data that you voluntarily make available to us, or applicable data that we collect automatically when you visit our Internet pages (e.g., your IP address and the names of the pages you visit, the browser you are using and your operating system, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files).

If you use services, we usually collect only the data that we need to provide these services. If we ask you for further information, it would be voluntary information. The processing of personal data takes place exclusively for the fulfillment of requested services and for the protection of our own legitimate business interests.

Purpose of Personal Data Collection

We generally use the personal data you provide to answer your inquiries, process your orders, and provide you with access to certain information or offers. In order to maintain customer relationships, it may also be necessary that we or a service provider commissioned by us use this personal data to inform you about product offers or to carry out online surveys in order to better meet the tasks and requirements of our customers.

We will of course respect if you choose not to allow your personal data to support our customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or market research purposes). We will not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties.

Specific use of personal data

We will collect, process and use personal data you have made available to us online only for the purposes communicated to you. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

Collection of personal data as well as their transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information will only take place within the framework of the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision. Our employees and the service providers commissioned by us are obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and comply with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act.

When using our Internet pages, the following data is stored for organizational and technical reasons: the names of the pages you have accessed, the browser you are using and your operating system, the date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files, and your IP address.

We evaluate this technical data anonymously and only for statistical purposes in order to constantly optimize our Internet presence and to make our website even more attractive. This data is stored separately from other personal information on secure systems. Conclusions on individuals are not drawn.

For the dispatch of your order, we will forward your address data and, if necessary regarding date coordination, your email address and telephone number to the logistics company commissioned with the delivery.

Data supply to resellers/manufacturers

Some products are delivered directly from the manufacturer to you. In this case, we will pass on your address data to the manufacturer for the delivery of your ordered goods.

Data protection for children and young people

Persons under the age of 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and young people, do not collect them and do not pass them on to third parties.

Data security

We have taken technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees and all persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with the Federal Data Protection Act and other data protection laws and the confidential handling of personal data.

In the case of the collection and processing of personal data, the information is transmitted in encrypted form in order to prevent the misuse of data by third parties. Our security measures are constantly being revised according to technological development.

Changing our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change our security and data protection measures as far as is necessary for technical development. In these cases, we will also adapt our privacy policy accordingly. Please note the current version of our privacy policy.

Data protection and external links

If you use external links offered within our Internet pages, this data protection does not extend to these links. Insofar as we offer links, we assure that at the time of setting the link no violations of the applicable right on the linked Internet pages were recognizable. However, we have no influence on the compliance of data protection and security regulations by other providers. For this reason, you should also check the data protection definitions provided on the websites of the other providers.
