Privacy statement

Unless otherwise stated below, the provision of your personal information is not required by law, contract or contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Failure to do so will have no consequences. This only applies insofar as no other information is given in the subsequent processing procedures.

"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

 

Server Logfiles

You can visit our websites without providing any personal information.

Each time you access our website, usage data is transmitted to us or our web host / IT service provider via your Internet browser and stored in log data (so-called server log files). These stored data include, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the IP address, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO out of our overwhelming legitimate interest in ensuring the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our services.


Proactive approach by e-mail

If you contact us by e-mail on your own initiative, we will only collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) to the extent that you’re providing it. The data processing serves to process and answer your contact request.

If the purpose of the contact is to carry out pre-contractual measures (e.g. advice in the event of an interest to buy, preparation of an offer) or concerns a contract already concluded between you and us, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b DSGVO.

If contact is established for other reasons, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO out of our predominantly justified interest in processing and answering your enquiry. In this case, you have the right to object against it at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO.

We will only use your e-mail address to process your enquiry. Your data will then be deleted in compliance with statutory retention periods, unless you have consented to further processing and usage.
 

Orders

Collection, processing and passing on of personal data for orders

When ordering, we collect and process your personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfill and process your order and to process your inquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to do so will mean that no contract can be concluded. Processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you.

A passing on of your data takes place thereby for example to the dispatch enterprises and Dropshipping offerers selected by you, payment service providers, service offerers for the order winding up and IT-Dienstleister. In all cases we strictly observe the legal requirements. The scope of data transmission is limited to a minimum.

Collection and processing when using the contact form

When using the contact form, we collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) only to the extent provided by you. Data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the transmitted data. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO with your consent.

You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until revocation. We will only use your e-mail address to process your enquiry. Your data will then be deleted if you have not consented to further processing and use.

 

Use of the e-mail address for sending newsletters

We use your e-mail address independently of the contract processing exclusively for our own advertising purposes for newsletter dispatch, provided that you have expressly agreed to this. Processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO with your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until revocation. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by notifying us. Your e-mail address will then be removed from the mailing list.

Use of social plug-ins

We use social networking plug-ins on our website. The integration of social plug-ins and the data processing that takes place in the process serve the purpose of optimising advertising for our products.

This applies regardless of whether you are registered or logged on to the social network. Also with not registered and/or not logged in users a transmission takes place.

When you use the plug-in functions (e.g. by pressing the button), this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your social media accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons.
