With every visit on the website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request. These access data are analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit on our website.

Mandatory fields are marked as such, as in these cases we necessarily need the data to process the contract and we cannot send the order without their specification. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

Further information on the processing of your data, in particular on the forwarding of the data to our service providers for the purpose of order, payment and shipping, can be found in the following sections of this privacy policy. After complete processing of the contract, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this privacy policy.

Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR by deciding to open a customer account, we will use and store your data for the purpose of opening the customer account as well as for further future orders on our website. Deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described in this privacy policy or via a function provided for this purpose in the customer account. After deletion of your customer account, your data will be deleted unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this privacy policy.

We forward your data to the shipping company within the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods according to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

4. Data processing for the purposes of payment

As part of the payment process in our online shop, we work together with these partners: technical service provider, credit institution, payment service provider.

4.1 Data processing for the purposes of transaction processing

Depending on the selected payment method, we forward the data necessary for processing the payment transaction to our technical service providers, who act for us on the basis of processing on our behalf or to the authorised credit institutions or to the selected payment service provider insofar as this is necessary for the payment process. This serves the fulfilment of the contract according to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. In certain cases, payment service providers collect the data required for processing the payment themselves, e.g. on their own website or via technical solution within the ordering process. In this respect, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies. If you have any questions about our payment processing partners and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy.

We may forward other data to our service providers, which they use for the purpose of fraud prevention and to optimise our payment processes (e.g. invoicing, processing of contested payments, accounting support) together with the data necessary to process the payment as our processors.
This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in fraud prevention or an efficient payment management in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests.

6.2 Use of the "Consentmanager" tool by consentmanager AB for obtaining and managing consent

We use Consentmanager on our website to inform you about the cookies and other technologies we use on our website and to obtain, manage and document your consent, if required, to the processing of your personal data by these technologies. This is required under Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR to fulfil our legal obligation under Art. 7 (1) GDPR to be able to prove your consent to the processing of your personal data, to which we are subject. Consentmanager is an offer from consentmanager AB, Håltegelvägen 1b, 72348 Västerås, Sweden.

After submitting your cookie declaration on our website, Consentmanager's web server stores your IP address, browser, language and accessed website. Furthermore, the IP is processed to determine the visitor's country. In addition, cookies are used that contain information about your consent behavior, in particular the status and date of consent.

The duration of data storage depends on your active user settings on our website.

8. Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge / other widgets

Trusted Shops widgets (e.g. Trusted Shops Trustbadge) are integrated in this website to display Trusted Shops services (e.g. Trustmark, collected reviews) and to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after they have placed an order.

This serves to protect our legitimate interests in optimized marketing by enabling secure shopping in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne (Trusted Shops). We and Trusted Shops are joint controllers in data protection terms pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR. In the following section, we inform you about the essential contents of the joint controllership agreement according to Art. 26 (2) GDPR.

The trust badge is provided as part of a joint controllership by a US CDN provider (content delivery network). An adequate level of data protection is ensured by standard data protection clauses and other contractual measures. Further information on the privacy policy of Trusted Shops GmbH can be found here.

When the Trustbadge is viewed, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. The IP address is anonymized immediately after collection, so that the stored data cannot be assigned to your person. The server log file is stored in a security database for the analysis of security anomalies and automatically deleted or anonymized not later than 90 days after creation. According to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, this serves the our and Trusted Shops' legitimate interests to prevent cases of misuse and fraud, to optimize our offers and websites, and to ensure trouble-free operation of the website, the Trustbadge and other Trusted Shops widgets.

Further personal data is transferred to Trusted Shops GmbH if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or if you have already registered to use them. For this purpose, personal data is automatically collected from the order data. To check automatically whether you as a buyer are already registered for product use, a neutral parameter, e.g. the e-mail address hashed by cryptological one-way function, is used. The e-mail address is converted into this hash value, which cannot be decrypted by Trusted Shops, before it is transmitted. After checking for a match, the parameter is automatically deleted.

This serves to check whether you are already registered for services with Trusted Shops GmbH and is therefore necessary to safeguard our and Trusted Shops' prevailing legitimate interests in the fulfillment of the buyer protection linked to the specific order and the transactional review services pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If this is the case, further processing will be carried out in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you have not yet registered for the services, you will be given the opportunity to do so for the first time. Further processing after registration also depends on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops. If you do not register, all transmitted data is automatically deleted by Trusted Shops and a personal reference is then no longer possible.

Within the framework of the joint controllership between us and Trusted Shops GmbH, please contact Trusted Shops GmbH if you have any data protection questions or wish to assert your rights. You can find their contact details here. Further information on data protection can be found in the following link here. Regardless of this, you can also always contact us using the contact option described in this privacy policy. Your request will then, if necessary, be forwarded to the other party responsible for responding.
