Data protection declaration
General scope of data processing
Data protection is of great importance in our society. We comply with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO), which regulates the processing of personal data uniformly for the entire European Union and other national data protection laws of the member states as well as other data protection regulations. We only collect, process and use personal data insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and to present our offers and to provide our services.
As a user, you can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Personal data is only collected and used if this is necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our content and services. Your personal data will only be collected and used with your consent. An exception applies in such cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons or where the collection and processing of data is permitted by legal regulations.
For security reasons, we use an SSL certificate on our website to provide secure connections by encrypting all incoming and outgoing data traffic. You can recognize the encryption by the lock symbol in your browser line and by the fact that "https://" is displayed there.

General legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) is the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO is the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO is the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) of the DSBER is the legal basis.
If the necessary processing serves to protect our legitimate interest or that of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing.
Data erasure and storage time
Your personal data stored by us will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which we are subject, e.g. on the basis of tax and commercial law obligations to store and document data. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
Recording of technical access data, server log files
Every time you visit our website, our web server automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the computer you are using. The following data is collected:
- Browser name and version used
- the operating system used and its resolution
- IP address
- Date and time of access
- Amount of data sent
- Website from which you access our website (referrer URL)
- Name and URL of the files accessed via our website
- Error information for error analysis
The data is temporarily stored in the log files of the web server we use. The data will be deleted automatically after 14 days. This data is not stored together with other personal data. Your data cannot be assigned by us to any particular person. We use this technical protocol data only for statistical purposes and to optimise our website and its security. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Temporary storage of the IP address by our web server is necessary to enable delivery of the web pages accessed to your computer. To do this, the IP address of the calling computer must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in the above purposes.
The stored data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Therefore, there is no possibility for you to object or remove them.
We use "cookies" on our website. Cookies" are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the calling computer system. When you visit a website, a cookie may be stored on the operating system of the computer you are using. This cookie contains a characteristic character string that enables a unique identification of the browser when the website is called up again.
If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full. The transmission of Flash cookies cannot be prevented via the browser settings, but by changing the Flash Player settings.
If you are able to set up a customer account on our website and register, stating your personal data, the following applies: The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and saved. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The following data is collected during the registration process: Your first and last name, your postal address, your e-mail address, your telephone number, your personal login password. As part of the registration process, your consent to the processing of this data is expressly obtained. At the time of registration, the following data is also stored: The IP address of the calling computer, date and time of registration. Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in the above purposes.
Your registration is necessary to fulfil a contract with you or to carry out pre-contractual measures. By registering, we can make your data available to you again quickly and conveniently, without you having to enter it again. If you have given your consent, the legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. If the registration serves the fulfilment of a contract between you and us or the execution of pre-contractual measures, then additional legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case for those during the registration process to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures when the data is no longer required for the execution of the contract. Even after conclusion of the contract, it may still be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations.
As a user you have the possibility to cancel the registration at any time. You can change the data stored about you at any time. To change or delete your data, simply contact us at the contact details shown in the imprint. Ideally you should send us an e-mail. If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, premature deletion of the data is only possible insofar as there are no contractual or statutory obligations to the contrary.
Contact form and e-mail contact
If there is a contact form on our website that you can use for making electronic contact, the following applies: If you take advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and saved. These data are for the treatment of the establishment of contact: Your first and surname, your postal address, your E-Mail address, your telephone number. Minimum mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk. At the time the message is sent, the IP address of the calling computer; date and time of registration are also stored to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in the above purposes.
We obtain your consent for the processing of the data before sending it and at the same time refer to this data protection declaration.
Alternatively, you can contact us by e-mail. In this case, only the personal data transmitted by you by e-mail will be stored for processing the contact. Under no circumstances will your data be passed on to third parties. Your data will be used exclusively for the purpose of communication. If you have given your consent, the legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The legal basis for the processing of personal data that you have sent us by e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 exp. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective communication with you has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.
You have the possibility to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If you have contacted us by e-mail, you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. The revocation can take place e.g. by sending a revocation e-mail or by letter to our contact addresses shown in the imprint. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will then be deleted.
Data transfer to service partners
We will only pass on your personal data to service partners who are involved in the processing of the contract, such as the shipping company responsible for the delivery and the bank responsible for payment matters. The extent to which data is passed on to third parties is limited to the minimum required, namely your first and last name and your delivery address. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
In the event that you have expressly given us or, at your request, the service partner your consent, we will also pass on your e-mail address, your telephone number or your date of birth for the purpose of coordinating a delivery date of the shipping company or a required identity and creditworthiness query of the payment service provider. If you do not give us your consent in this respect, it is not possible to agree on a delivery date or a shipping notification or a "purchase on account" or "purchase by direct debit" or "hire purchase" in advance. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can of course revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future vis-à-vis us or vis-à-vis the respective shipping or payment service provider.
Shipping service provider:
- In the event that shipment is made via DHL, we will forward your data to Deutsche Post AG, Charles-de-Gaulle-Straße 20, 53113 Bonn.
- In the event that the shipment is made via DPD, we will forward your respective data to the DPD Deutschland GmbH, Wailandtstraße 1, 63741 Aschaffenburg.
Payment service provider with credit check
If you choose the payment method "Klarna Invoice Purchase" or (if offered) the payment method "Klarna Installment Purchase", payment is processed by Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden (hereinafter "Klarna"). If you have given your consent, your personal data (first and last name, street, house number, postcode, city, gender, e-mail address, telephone number and IP address) as well as data in connection with the order (e.g. article, delivery type, invoice amount) will be passed on to Klarna for the purpose of identity and credit assessment.
Your data can be forwarded to credit agencies to check your creditworthiness. You can see which of these are under the following link: https://cdn.klarna.com/1.0/shared/content/legal/terms/0/de_en/credit_rating_agencies
. When deciding on the establishment, execution or termination of the contractual relationship, Klarna collects and uses information on the buyer's payment history as well as probability values for this behavior in the future, in addition to an address check. Klarna's calculation of these score values is based on a scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedure. Klarna will also use your address data for this purpose. If this calculation shows that your creditworthiness is not assured, Klarna will inform you immediately. Your personal data will be processed in accordance with Klarna's current data protection regulations for data subjects based in Germany https://cdn.klarna.com/1.0/shared/content/policy/data/de_en/data_protection.pdf
or for victims located in Austria https://cdn.klarna.com/1.0/shared/content/policy/data/de_at/data_protection.pdf
"SOFORT" bank transfer
Sofort GmbH is part of the Klarna Group. Other Group companies, in particular Klarna Bank AB (publ), ("Klarna"), can therefore also be included in the credit assessment. Klarna Bank AB (publ) is a Swedish company registered in the Swedish Business Register under number 556737-0431 with its head office at Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden. The inclusion allows Klarna to share a limited extent the results of a credit assessment with Klarna to improve the results and Klarna to process them for its own future credit assessments. Conversely, in some cases Klarna can also carry out the credit assessment and the decisions based on its results for the further execution of the contract in full. In this case, the relevant positive and negative payment experiences are first transmitted to Klarna and then deleted after completion of the transaction.

If you decide on a payment method via the checkout portal by wirecard of the payment service provider Wirecard Technologies AG, Einsteinring 35, 85609 Aschheim (Wirecard AG), we will pass on to Wirecard AG your information provided during the order process together with the information about your order (name, address, possibly IBAN, possibly BIC, invoice amount, currency and possibly transaction number). According to Wirecard AG's data protection declaration, the data to be processed will be used exclusively for the purposes commissioned by you - e.g. payment processing and risk management. Depending on the services ordered, further data can be obtained from external sources - e.g. IP geolocation information or creditworthiness information.

Web analytics tools
We use various web analysis tools on our website for the analysis of usage data in order to be able to design our online offers and our website in an optimal and demand-oriented manner with a view to user-friendliness and optimisation. As a rule, the web analysis tools use "cookies" (for definition see section 7.1). Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit f DSGVO (legitimate interest).
In order to respect your privacy, any data that may allow a reference to your person, such as IP address, login or device IDs, will be anonymized or pseudonymized as soon as possible. Any other use, combination with other data or passing on to third parties does not take place. In detail, these are the following tools:
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the anonymised, i.e. shortened, IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
IP anonymization "_anonymizeIp()" is activated on our website. This option reduces your IP address from Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This excludes the possibility of personalizing your IP address. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. In these exceptional cases, this processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes.
On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the above link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit our website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

Right of information
(Article 19 DSGVO) - If you have exercised your right to have the processing corrected, deleted or restricted, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
