Thank you for your interest in our online shop. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Please find more information on how we treat your data below.

Every time you access a website, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of access, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and which documents the retrieval.
This access data is analysed exclusively for the purposes of guaranteeing a disruption-free operation of the site, as well as the improvement of our offer. According to Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (f) GDPR, this serves to safeguard our major legitimate interests in the correct representation of our offer. All access data will be erased seven days after you have finished visiting our site at the latest.
Hosting services by a third-party provider
As part of processing carried out on our behalf, a third-party provider carries out services for the hosting and display of the website. This serves to safeguard our major legitimate interests in the correct representation of our offer. All data which is collected as part of the use of this website, or in forms intended for this purpose on the online shop as described below, will be processed on their servers.

In accordance with Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (b) GDPR, we use the data with which you have provided us for contract processing and the processing of your queries. After the successful completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be limited for its further processing and, after the expiry of the retention periods stipulated by fiscal and commercial law, erased, insofar as you have not expressly consented to the further use of your data or insofar as we are subject to a legally permissible use of data which extends beyond this, of which we inform you in this policy.
