Thank you for visiting our online shop. Protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find extensive information about how we handle your data.
1. Access data and hosting
You may visit our website without revealing any personal information. With every visit on the website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request. These access data are analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit on our website.

2.1 Data processing for the purposes of performing the contract
We collect personal data that you disclose to us whenever you place an order or contact us (e.g. via contact form or by email). Mandatory fields are marked as such because we absolutely need those data to perform the contract or process your contact request, and you would otherwise not be able to complete your order or send the contact request. It is evident in each input form what data are collected.

We may forward other data to our service providers, which they use for the purpose of fraud prevention and to optimise our payment processes (e.g. invoicing, processing of contested payments, accounting support) together with the data necessary to process the payment as our processors.
This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in fraud prevention or an efficient payment management in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests.
5. Cookies and further technologies
In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, to display suitable products or for market research, we use technologies on various pages, including so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are automatically stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us to recognise your browser during your next visit (persistent cookies). We use such technologies that are strictly necessary for the use of certain functions of our website (e.g. shopping cart function). These technologies are used to collect and process IP addresses, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website (e.g. information on the contents of the shopping basket). This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in an optimised presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests.
6. Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge / other widgets
Trusted Shops widgets (e.g. Trusted Shops Trustbadge) are integrated in this website to display Trusted Shops services (e.g. Trustmark, collected reviews) and to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after they have placed an order.
This serves to protect our legitimate interests in optimized marketing by enabling secure shopping in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne (Trusted Shops). We and Trusted Shops are joint controllers in data protection terms pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR. In the following section, we inform you about the essential contents of the joint controllership agreement according to Art. 26 (2) GDPR.
When the Trustbadge is viewed, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. The IP address is anonymized immediately after collection, so that the stored data cannot be assigned to your person. The server log file is stored in a security database for the analysis of security anomalies and automatically deleted or anonymized not later than 90 days after creation. According to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, this serves the our and Trusted Shops' legitimate interests to prevent cases of misuse and fraud, to optimize our offers and websites, and to ensure trouble-free operation of the website, the Trustbadge and other Trusted Shops widgets.
Further personal data is transferred to Trusted Shops GmbH if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or if you have already registered to use them. For this purpose, personal data is automatically collected from the order data. To check automatically whether you as a buyer are already registered for product use, a neutral parameter, e.g. the e-mail address hashed by cryptological one-way function, is used. The e-mail address is converted into this hash value, which cannot be decrypted by Trusted Shops, before it is transmitted. After checking for a match, the parameter is automatically deleted.
This serves to check whether you are already registered for services with Trusted Shops GmbH and is therefore necessary to safeguard our and Trusted Shops' prevailing legitimate interests in the fulfillment of the buyer protection linked to the specific order and the transactional review services pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If this is the case, further processing will be carried out in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you have not yet registered for the services, you will be given the opportunity to do so for the first time. Further processing after registration also depends on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops. If you do not register, all transmitted data is automatically deleted by Trusted Shops and a personal reference is then no longer possible.
