Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.
Data collection and use for contract processing and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide it to us in the context of your order, when contacting us (eg by contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process the contract and handle your inquiries. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you below. Deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.
Data transfer for the fulfillment of the contract
To make visiting our website more attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit (persistent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. If you do not accept cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited.
Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analysis
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc (www.google.de). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that enable an analysis of your use of the website, such as so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer. The information generated about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. By activating IP anonymization on this website, the IP address is shortened before transmission within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Alternatively to the browser plugin, you can click this link to prevent the collection by Google Analytics on this website in the future. This will place an opt-out cookie on your terminal device. If you delete your cookies, you must click the link again.
Use of social plugins from Facebook, Google+, Twitter using the "2-click solution"
So-called social plugins ("plugins") from the social networks Facebook and Google+ and the microblogging service Twitter are used on our website. These services are offered by the companies Facebook Inc, Google Inc and Twitter Inc ("providers").
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103.
In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are integrated into the page using a so-called "2-click solution". This integration ensures that when you call up a page of our website that contains such plugins, no connection is yet established with the servers of Facebook, Google and Twitter. Only when you activate the plugins and thus give your consent to the data transfer, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Google, Facebook or Twitter. The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly to your browser by the associated provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the corresponding provider or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a server of the respective provider in the USA and stored there. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like", "+1" or "Tweet" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information will also be published on the social network or on your Twitter account and displayed there to your contacts.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in the privacy notices of the providers.
