Privacy Policy

1. General

1.1 What is personal data

Personal data is information that discloses or can disclose the user's identity. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. As far as possible, we refrain from collecting personal data.

1.2 Handling of personal data

Personal data is used exclusively to establish the contract, define its content, and implement or process the contractual relationship (Art. 6 (1 b) GDPR).

Beyond that, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent to do so (Art. 6 (1 a) GDPR) or if it is data whose processing is necessary for our legitimate interests and insofar as the balancing process shows that no overriding interests, fundamental rights or freedoms on your part are opposed (Art. 6 (1 f) GDPR).

We may use order processors to process your personal data, but will not pass on the personal data to third parties beyond this as a matter of principle.

Only for the fulfillment of the contract will the data be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary to deliver ordered goods. The payment data required for the processing of payments will be passed on to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the commissioned and selected payment service provider.

The processing of your personal data takes place exclusively within the EU, unless otherwise stated below.

When visiting the website, general technical information is collected. This is the IP address used, time, duration of the visit, browser type and, if applicable, the page of origin. This usage data is registered in a log file for technical reasons and can be used and stored for statistical evaluation of this website. This usage data is not linked to your other personal data.

1.4 Duration of storage

We store your personal data after the termination of the purpose for which the data was collected only as long as this is required by law (especially tax law).

2.2 Right to rectification

You have the right to rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and may request the completion of incomplete personal data in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR.

2.3 Right to erasure

You have the right to demand that we delete the personal data concerning you without undue delay. We are obliged to delete them without delay, in particular, if one of the following reasons applies:

  • Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • You revoke your consent on which the processing of your data was based, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • Your data has been processed unlawfully.

The right to erasure does not exist insofar as your personal data is required to assert, exercise, or defend our legal claims.

2.4 Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data if

  • you dispute the accuracy of the data and we therefore verify the accuracy,
  • the processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion and demand the restriction of use instead
  • we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
  • you have objected to the processing of your data and it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

2.5 Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that the processing is based on consent or a contract and the processing is carried out by us with the help of automated processes.

2.6 Right of withdrawal

Insofar as the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.

2.7 General and right of appeal

The exercise of your above rights is generally free of charge for you. In the event of complaints, you have the right to directly contact the supervisory authority responsible for us, the State Data Protection Officer.
