Privacy Policy

We appreciate your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find a detailed description of how we handle your information.

Storage of Access Data in Server Log Files

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We only store access data—such as the name of the requested file, the date and time of call-up, the amount of data transferred, and the requesting provider—in so-called server log files. This data is used solely to ensure the smooth operation of the website and to improve our offering and does not allow us to deduce any information concerning your person.

Data Collection and Use for Contract Execution and to Open a Customer Account

We collect personal information when you voluntarily provide such information in the course of placing your order, contacting us (e.g. via contact form or email), or opening a customer account. The information collected in each case is evident in the respective input fields. The information you provide is used to execute the contract and process your inquiries.

Upon completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your information is blocked from further use. Once fiscal and commercial periods have elapsed, your information is deleted unless you have explicitly consented to the further use of the information or we have reserved the right to use the information for other purposes permitted by law, which you will be informed of below. You can delete your customer account at any time by sending a message using the contact information provided below.

Data Sharing for Contract Execution

For the purpose of executing the order, we provide your information to the shipping company responsible for delivery to the extent necessary to effect delivery. Depending on which payment service provider you chose during the ordering process, we will share the necessary payment information with the credit institute commissioned with the payment and possibly with the payment service provider commissioned by us and/or the selected payment service. Sometimes the chosen payment service providers collect this information themselves if you open an account with them. In this case, you must sign in with your payment service provider using your access data during the ordering process. Here, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.

Use of Data when Subscribing to Email Newsletter

Should you subscribe to our newsletter, we use the required data or the data you provide us separately to regularly send you our email-newsletter with your consent. You can unsubscribe form the newsletter at any time by either sending a message using the contact information provided below or by clicking on the link provided for this event in the newsletter.

Use of Data for Email Advertising without Newsletter Registration and Your Right to Object

If we received your email address in connection with the sale of an article or service and you have not indicated otherwise, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers on similar products in our range via email. You may object to such use of your email address at any time by sending a message using the contact information provided below without incurring any costs other than the basic cost of transmitting this message.

Use of Data for Postal Advertising and Your Right to Object

Furthermore, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your mailing address, and—insofar as you have provided us with these additional details in the course of the contractual relationship—your title, academic degree, year of birth, as well as your job title, industrial sector, or line of business in lists to be used for our own advertising purposes, e.g. to send you interesting offers and information about our products by mail. You can object to the storage and use of your information for these purposes at any time by sending a message using the contact information provided below.
