Data protection declaration
 
 Unless stated otherwise below, the provision of your personal data is neither legally nor contractually obligatory, nor required for conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide your data. Not providing it will have no consequences. This only applies as long as the processing procedures below do not state otherwise.
 "Personal data" is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
 
               Server log files              You can use our websites without submitting personal data.               Every time our website is accessed, user data is transferred to us or our web hosts/IT service providers by your internet browser and stored in server log files. This stored data includes for example the name of the site called up, date and time of the request, the IP address, amount of data transferred and the provider making the request. The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) f) GDPR due to our legitimate interests in ensuring the smooth operation of our website as well as improving our services.
            
 Customer account      Orders      
 
      Customer account      When you open a customer account, we will collect your personal data in the scope given there. The data processing is for the purpose of improving your shopping experience and simplifying order processing. The processing will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal. Your customer account will then be deleted.
                     Collection, processing, and transfer of personal data in orders              When you submit an order we only collect and use your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment and handling of your order as well as processing of your queries. The provision of data is necessary for conclusion of a contract. Failure to provide it will prevent the conclusion of any contract. The processing will occur on the basis of Article 6(1) b) GDPR and is required for the fulfilment of a contract with you.               Your data is transferred here for example to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers, payment service providers, service providers for handling the order and IT service providers that you have selected. We will comply strictly with legal requirements in every case. The scope of data transmission is restricted to a minimum.
            
 Shipping companies      
 
      Forwarding of your email address to shipping companies for information on shipping status      We forward your email address to the shipping company in the course of contractual processing, if you have explicitly agreed to this in the order process. The forwarding is for the purpose of informing you by email on the shipping status of your order. The processing will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us or the transport company without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal.

When a user calls up a website, a cookie may be saved on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string which allows the browser to be clearly identified when the website is called up again.
 We use these cookies to make our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies also allow our systems to recognise your browser after a page change and to offer you services. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. These services require the browser to be recognised again after a page change.
 Processing is carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR due to our largely justified interest in ensuring the optimal functionality of the website as well as a user-friendly and effective design of our range of services.

 Plug-ins
 
      Using Instagram plug-ins      These websites use the plug-in from online service provider Instagram, which is provided by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram").      If you access pages on our website that contain this plug-in, this will generate a connection to the Instagram server and indicate the plug-in on the site by means of message in your browser. Information such as your IP address and which websites you have visited is transmitted to the Instagram server.      If you are logged into Instagram, Instagram will assign this information to your personal user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the "Instagram" button") this information is also assigned to your Instagram account, which you can only prevent by logging out prior to using the plug-in.      If you do not want Instagram to directly add the information collected to your Instagram account, you must either log out of Instagram prior to visiting our site or use an add-on or the script blocker "NoScript" (noscript.net) to block the Instagram plug-in loading on our websites.      Further information on the data collected and used by Instagram, your rights and privacy can be found in Instagram's privacy policy: help.instagram.com/155833707900388 (http://help.instagram.com/155833707900388)              Use of GoogleMaps

Google Ireland Limited is an affiliated company of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).      This feature visually represents geographical information and interactive maps. Google also collects, processes and uses data on visitors to the website when they call up pages with embedded Google maps. Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. Following the US-EU Data Protection Agreement, Google has become "Privacy Shield" certified and is therefore obliged to observe European data protection laws. 
     Processing is carried out on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 point (f) GDPR due to our justified interest in needs-based and targeted design of the website.

   Rights of persons affected and storage duration
 
      Duration of storage       After contractual processing has been completed, the data is initially stored for the duration of the warranty period, then in accordance with the retention periods prescribed by law, especially tax and commercial law, and then deleted after the period has elapsed, unless you have agreed to further processing and use.
            Rights of the affected person      If the legal requirements are fulfilled, you have the following rights according to art. 15 to 20 GDPR: Right to information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability. You also have a right of objection against processing based on art. 6 (1) GDPR, and to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, according to art. 21 (1) GDPR.

If the objection is successful, we will no longer process the personal data for the purposes of direct advertising.
