Thank you for visiting our websites and for your interest in our company and products.
Protecting your privacy and personal information when using our websites is important to us. We therefore comply fully with all applicable data protection laws. We collect personal information only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of our services. The following explanations will give you an understanding of how we ensure this protection, which data is collected and for what purpose.
We do not pass on your personal information
We will not share your personal information, including your home address and email address, with third parties. The only exceptions are our service partners who are needed to process your order. These partners include our bank for payment information and the parcel service for delivery. In these cases, we pass on your data in accordance with the requirements of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz). The volume of data transmitted is limited to the minimum necessary to provide our services.
Access, rectification, blocking and deletion of data
Under the German Federal Data Protection Act, you have the right to access, rectify, block or delete your stored data at any time. If the deletion conflicts with legal, contractual, commercial or fiscal retention periods or reasons, your data will be blocked instead of deleted. You can contact us by email insert contact info or telephone: insert telephone number.
Several areas of our websites use so-called "cookies". These are used to make our websites more user-friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies", which are automatically deleted after your visit. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses.
Anonymous data processing
Only the information that your browser sends to us is collected and stored in the log files of our web server. The following information is collected: operating system, browser type/version, name of your internet service provider, time of server query, website from which you are visiting us (referrer URL), and the web pages that you visit with us. This data is completely anonymous, is not linked with your personal information such as name, address or payment information, and is used solely for statistical purposes.
Collection of statistical data
In order to improve our service, we collect statistical data about the use of our internet shop. For this purpose we use the Google Analytics service [http://www.google.com/intl/de_ALL/analytics/]. If you do not wish to allow the collection of your data for statistical purposes, you can prevent this by installing a browser add-on which deactivates Google Analytics. You can find the add-on here [https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout].
We use the remarketing service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. This service makes it possible to recognize your computer after visiting our web pages and then to recognize your computer on other sites to address you specifically with advertisements for our products. For this purpose special cookies are used, which indicate which products have interested on our website. This data is transmitted to the Google Inc., where it is stored and used for the purpose of targeted advertising. In no case will your IP address be connected with any other data held by Google. The data collection and storage can be revoked at any time taking effect in the future. You can disable the use and storage of cookies by Google by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser by going to the page www.google.de/privacy/ads and press the "opt-out" button.
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at the Google Analytics Terms of Service or at the Google Analytics Privacy Overview. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics is supplemented by "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (IP masking).
Facebook Social Plugins
We are using Facebook Social Plugins in our shop. You can recognise those plugins by the Facebook logo (white "f" on blue ground). Please note that even opening a website on which such a plugin is used, will send information to Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook" in the following).
If you are logged in to Facebook when you are visiting our website, Facebook can assign collected data to your Facebook account. You can prevent this by logging off from Facebook before visiting our shop. In this case, you can only use the plugin's function when you log back in.
By using the functions "Like", "Comment" and "Share", relevant data will be transmitted to Facebook. When using "Like", this will become visible for third parties in different areas, including your own Facebook account. This also applies to comments you leave via "Comment".
If you do not wish that Facebook can assign the visit of our website to your Facebook-user’s account, please log off from your Facebook account. They can prevent the loading of the Facebook Plugins with Add-Ons for your browser completely, e.g., with the „Facebook of tailor” (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).
We use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Inc. (Google) to protect your submissions via internet submission forms on this site. This plugin checks if you are a person in order to prevent certain website functions from being (ab)used by spam bots (particularly comments). This plugin query includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the Google reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose your input will be communicated to and used by Google. However, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area and is, as such, anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCaptcha from your browser shall not be merged with any other data from Google.
By using the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
