Data protection declaration

Unless stated otherwise below, the provision of your personal data is neither legally nor contractually obligatory, nor required for conclusion
of a contract. You are not obliged to provide your data. Not providing it will have no consequences. This only applies as long as the
processing procedures below do not state otherwise.
“Personal data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Server log files
You can use our websites without submitting personal data.
Every time our website is accessed, user data is transferred to us or our web hosts/IT service providers by your internet browser and stored
in server log files. This stored data includes for example the name of the site called up, date and time of the request, the IP address,
amount of data transferred and the provider making the request. The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) f) GDPR due to
our legitimate interests in ensuring the smooth operation of our website as well as improving our services.

Customer account, orders

Customer account
When you open a customer account, we will collect your personal data in the scope given there. The data processing is for the purpose of
improving your shopping experience and simplifying order processing. The processing will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a
GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us without affecting the legality of the processing carried
out with your consent up to the withdrawal. Your customer account will then be deleted.

Collection, processing, and transfer of personal data in orders
When you submit an order we only collect and use your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment and handling of your
order as well as processing of your queries. The provision of data is necessary for conclusion of a contract. Failure to provide it will prevent
the conclusion of any contract. The processing will occur on the basis of Article 6(1) b) GDPR and is required for the fulfilment of a contract
with you.
Your data is transferred here for example to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers, payment service providers, service
providers for handling the order and IT service providers that you have selected. We will comply strictly with legal requirements in every
case. The scope of data transmission is restricted to a minimum.

Plug-ins

Use of social plug-ins via “Shariff”
Our website uses social network plug-ins. We use data protection-compliant “Shariff” buttons to ensure that you retain control over your
data.No connection is made to the social network servers and no data submitted without your explicit consent. “Shariff” was developed by
specialists at the computer magazine c't. It enables more personal privacy in the network and replaces the usual social network "share"
buttons. You can find more information on the Shariff project here https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-
Datenschutz-2467514.html.
When you click the buttons a pop-up window appears, allowing you to log on with the relevant provider using your data. It is only after you
actively login that a direct connection to the social network is set up. By logging in, you give your permission for the transfer of your data to
the respective social media provider. At this time, information such as your IP address and which websites you have visited is transmitted.
Should you be connected simultaneously with one or more of your social network accounts, the information collected is also assigned to
your corresponding profiles. Therefore, you can only prevent this assignment by logging yourself out before visiting our website and before
activating the button for your social media accounts. The social networks listed below are integrated with the “Shariff” function. You can find
more detailed information on the scope and purpose of collection and use of the data, your associated rights and options for protecting
your privacy in the provider’s privacy policy via the link.
