Our web shop, among others, is available to you for electronic orders. If you would like access, this will be set up by us.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the processing of your personal data, please contact us:
In your customer account, you can view and administer all your inventory data saved at our company.

We cannot assume any liability for passwords that are misused unless we are responsible for the misuse.
.Collection, processing and usage of the personal data within the framework of the order process via the web shop
The data fields marked within the framework of the order process as mandatory are required by us to fulfil your order. We therefore collect, save and process your data for the entire handling of your purchase, including any subsequent warranties, for our services, the technical administration and to prevent crimes and fraud. Your personal data will only be forwarded to third parties if this is permitted by law, including for the purpose of handling the contract or for settlement purposes, or if you have given your prior consent. Within the framework of the order and contract handling, for instance, the service providers used by us (e.g. banks, logistics companies) received the necessary data for the order and contract handling. The data forwarded in this way may only be used by our service providers to fulfil their tasks.

Usage of your data for advertising purposes

In addition to the processing of your data for the handling of your purchase, we also use your data to recommend products to you that could interest you. In this regard, you have either given us your consent beforehand (e.g. to receive the newsletter) or there is a predominantly legitimate interest on our part to send you the offers that are similar to your original order. We commission a service provider to send the recommendations. The latter has undertaken towards us to comply with the valid provisions under data privacy law.

Competitions

To conduct a competition, we collect personal data of the participants.

These data are first used to notify the winners by e-mail, post and/or telephone. The address data are also used to send out the prizes. In part, the cooperation partner involved in each case who provides the prizes will take over the sending out of the prizes under their own responsibility. In this case, the address data will be sent to the respective cooperation partner for the designated purpose. The data will not be sent to other third-party companies.
For statistical purposes, we analyse how many participants participated in the respective competition. This analysis does not permit any conclusions as to the identity of individual participants.

With each access by a user to our website, i.e. with each retrieval or attempted retrieval of a file on this server, data are saved in a log file via this process. These data are not personal; we can therefore not trace which user retrieved which data. We also do not try to collect this information.
Specifically, the following data record is saved about each retrieval:
- Name of the file retrieved
- Date and time of the retrieval of the transmitted data volume
- Report whether the retrieval was successful
- Report why the retrieval failed
- Name of your Internet service provider
- If applicable, operating system and browser software of your computer
- Website from which you are visiting us.
All the data named are analysed by us and service providers commissioned by us for statistical purposes. We use these data to make our website even better for you.

Within the framework of the valid statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to free-of-charge information about the personal data that are saved about you, their origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectify, block or erase these data. In this regard and for further questions about the topic of personal data, you can contact us at the following address at any time.
You have the right to have data that we process in automated form on the basis of your consent or in the fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a conventional, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transmission of the data to another controller, this will only be done if this is technically feasible.
If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data breaches statutory provisions, you have the right to appeal to the data privacy authority. An overview of the national and international data privacy authorities can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/article29/item-detail.cfm?item_id=612080.
