2. Collection, storage and use of personal data

(a) access data

We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage patterns and your interaction with us, and we register information about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about each access to our online services (so-called server log files). Access data includes your IP address, name and URL of the file accessed, date and time of the request, the requesting provider, time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), pages accessed, notification of successful access (HTTP response code), data volume transferred, referrer URL (i.e. the page previously visited), your operating system, the browser used and its language and version number.
We use this protocol data, without allocation to your person or other profiling, for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of our online services, but also for the anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and for the scope and type of use of our website and services, as well as for billing purposes, to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information enables us to provide personalized and location-based content and analyze traffic, troubleshoot and correct errors, and improve our services. We reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision or billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After the order process has been aborted or payment has been received, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offence in connection with the use of our website. 

b) During communication (e-mail, contact form)

When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide us with (your e-mail address, possibly your name and telephone number) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We will delete the data that arises in this context after it is no longer required to be stored, or restrict processing if there are legal storage obligations.

3. Legal basis and storage period

The legal basis for data processing in accordance with the above paragraphs is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our interests in data processing are, in particular, ensuring the operation and security of the website, investigating the manner in which visitors use the website, and simplifying the use of the website. Unless specifically stated, we will only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.

4. Disclosure to third parties

In principle, we use your personal data only within our company. 

If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service. In the event that we outsource certain parts of the data processing ("order processing"), we contractually oblige order processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the data protection laws and to guarantee the protection of the rights of the person concerned. 

There is no transfer of data to entities or persons outside the EU and there are no plans to do so.

We strive to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

To secure your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures, which we continually adapt to the state of the art. 

Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our services are available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are regularly and carefully backed up.
