Data privacy statement
We are pleased that you are interested in our website. We attach great importance to protecting your privacy. Below you will find detailed information with regard to the handling of your data.
Storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our website without sharing any personal details with us. We only save access data in so-called server log files, such as the name of the requested file, date and time of access, the volume of data transmitted and the requesting ISP. This data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the site and of improving our services; it does not allow us to determine your identity.
Collection and use of data for contractual performance and when creating a customer account
We shall collect personal details if you provide us with such details on a voluntary basis when placing your order, when contacting us (e.g. via a contact form or email) or when setting up a customer account. The data collected by us is specified on the respective form you complete. The data provided by you will be used for the purpose of contractual performance and for processing your enquiries. After the order has been executed in full or your customer account has been deleted, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the periods of retention required under fiscal and commercial law unless you have explicitly consented to the further use of your data or if we have reserved the right of further use which is legally admissible and about which you will find information below. You may choose to delete your customer account at any time and the deletion can be carried out with effect for the future either by sending a message to the contact stated below or via a designated function in the customer account.
Transfer of data for contractual performance
Your data will be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery of your order insofar as this company is required for the delivery of the ordered goods. The payment data required for effecting payments will be passed on by us to the bank instructed to carry out the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the payment service provider selected by you when you placed your order.
Use of data when you register to receive the newsletter by email
When you register to receive our newsletter, we will use the data required for this or communicated by you separately in order to send you our email newsletter at regular intervals. You may choose to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time with effect for the future, either by sending a message to the contact stated below or via a designated link contained in the newsletter.
Use of data for postal advertising and your right of objection
Furthermore, we reserve the right to store your first name, surname, postal address and – if we have received such additional details from you within the scope of our contractual relationship – your title, academic degree, your year of birth and specification of your profession, industry or business in the form of summary lists, which may then be used by us for our own promotional purposes, e.g. to send you interesting offers and information on our products by post. You may object to the storage and use of your data for such purposes at any time by sending a message to the contact indicated below.
