Data protection

Privacy policy
Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about how we handle your data.

Storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. We only store access data in so-called server log files, such as the name of the requested file, date and time of the request, transferred data volume and the requesting provider. These data are evaluated exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and do not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.

Data collection and use for contract processing and opening a customer account
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with this information as part of your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide us with for the purpose of contract processing and handling your inquiries. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after the expiry of the tax and commercial law retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data for other purposes that are legally permitted and about which we inform you below. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or by using a function in the customer account intended for this purpose.

Transfer of data for contract fulfilment
In order to fulfil the contract, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. For the processing of payments, we pass on the necessary payment data to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the payment service selected by you in the ordering process.

Use of data when registering for the e-mail newsletter
If you register for our newsletter, we will use the data required for this purpose or separately provided by you to send you our e-mail newsletter on a regular basis. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, either by sending a message to the contact option described below or by using a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter.

Use of data for postal advertising and your right of objection
Furthermore, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your postal address and - insofar as we have received this additional information from you in the course of the contractual relationship - your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business name in summarized lists and to use them for our own advertising purposes, e.g. to send you interesting offers and information on our products by post. You can object to the storage and use of your data for these purposes at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below.

Use of cookies
To make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit us (persistent cookies). You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are set and to decide individually whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Use of Google Analytics for web analysis
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
As an alternative to the browser plugin, you can click this link to prevent Google Analytics from recording data on this website in the future. In doing so, an opt-out cookie will be stored on your end device. If you delete your cookies, you have to click the link again.

Use of Facebook plugins
Our website uses so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Social Plug-in from Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin". An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or making a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of the Facebook plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the "Facebook Blocker"(http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/) or the script blocker "NoScript"(http://noscript.net/).

Right of information and contact
You have a right to free information about your personal data stored by us as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. If you have any questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data, about information, correction, blocking or deletion of data as well as revocation of any consents granted or objection to a specific use of data, please contact us:
