Data Protection

1. General
1.1 What is personal data?
Personal data is any information that discloses or can disclose the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. As far as possible, we do not collect personal data.

1.2 Dealing with Personal Data
Personal data is used solely for the purpose of establishing the contract, structuring its content, implementing or processing the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I b DSGVO). In addition, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent to do so (Art. 6 I a DSGVO). In principle, data will not be passed on to third parties. Data will only be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery in order to fulfil the contract, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. In order to process payments, the necessary payment data will be forwarded to the bank commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the commissioned and selected payment service provider. The processing of your personal data takes place exclusively within the EU, unless otherwise stated below.

1.3 Usage Data
When you visit the website, general technical information is collected. This includes the IP address used, time of day, duration of the visit, browser type and, if applicable, the page of origin. This usage data is registered in a log file for technical reasons and can be used and stored for the purpose of statistical evaluation of this website. This usage data is not linked to further personal data.

1.4 Registration Data
Registration is required for the full use of the features of our website. Registration data is collected through your corresponding entries and used for the specific purpose stated in accordance with your consent (Art. 6 I a DSGVO).

1.5 Duration of Storage
After termination of the purpose for which the data was collected, we only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary due to legal (in particular tax) regulations.

2. Your Rights
2.1 Information
You can request information from us as to whether we process your personal data. If so, you have the right of information about this personal data and further information specified in Art. 15 DSGVO.

2.2 Right to Correction
You have the right to rectify incorrect personal data related to you and may request the completion of incomplete personal data in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO.

2.3 Right of Cancellation
You have the right to demand that we delete your personal data immediately. We are obliged to delete the data immediately, in particular if one of the following reasons applies:
- Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
- You revoke your consent on which the processing of your data was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- Your data has been processed unlawfully.
The right of cancellation does not exist if your personal data is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of our legal claims.

2.4 Right to Limitation of Processing
You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data
- if you dispute the accuracy of the data and we therefore verify the accuracy,
- if the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete it and instead request the restriction of its use,
- if we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
- if you have objected to the processing of your data and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

2.5 Right to Data Transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to communicate this data to another responsible person without our interference, provided that processing is based on a consent or a contract and it is carried out by us using automated procedures.

2.6 Right of Revocation
If the processing of your personal data is based on a consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.

2.7 General and Right of Appeal
The exercise of your aforementioned rights is generally free of charge for you. If you have any complaints, you have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for us directly (the state data protection officer).

3. Data Security
3.1 Data Security
All data on our website is protected by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration and distribution.

3.2 Sessions and Cookies
We may use cookies or server-side sessions in which data can be stored to operate the website. Cookies can also be used, for example, to greet you personally with your member name. Cookies are files that are stored by a website on your hard drive in order to automatically recognize this computer the next time you visit the website and thus to adapt the use of the website to you. Some of the cookies used are deleted after ending the browser session. These are so-called session cookies. Other cookies remain on your end device and enable the browser to be recognized during a subsequent visit to our website (permanent cookies). You can set your browser so that it informs you about any cookies occurring and you can decide individually whether to accept them or whether to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general. Please note that you may not be able to use some functions of this website if cookies are deactivated. We ensure that no personal data from sessions or through cookies is transferred and that cookies are only used if this is necessary for the website. Thus, the assessment shows that there are no overriding interests on your part (Art. 6 I f DSGVO).

4. Newsletter
If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the data required for this purpose or provided separately by you in order to send you our e-mail newsletter on a regular basis. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, either by sending us a message via the contact details given in the imprint or via the link provided in the newsletter.

5. Third-Party Services
5.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") and collects and stores data via this web analysis service from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. The user profiles created in this way are used to evaluate visitor behavior in order to design and improve the services presented on this website in line with requirements. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are small 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 the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Zone. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Even the user profiles under a pseudonym are not merged with the personal data of the user without the express and separately declared consent of the user. 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. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout). 
You can view Google's data protection information. You can find more information on the terms of use and data protection at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIp" in order to guarantee an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

5.2 Social Media Links
We have our own social media pages with third-party providers that can be reached via links from this website. By using the links, you will reach the respective websites of the third-party providers, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+. As soon as you have called up the page of the third-party provider, you are in the area of responsibility of the respective third-party provider, so that their data protection declaration or their declarations on the use of data also apply. We have no influence on this, but we recommend that you log out of the respective third-party provider yourself to avoid unnecessary data transfer before using a corresponding link, so that usage profiles cannot be created by the third-party provider through the use of the link.
