Data protection declaration

Thank you for your interest in our website. Protecting your personal data is very important to us and we would like to tell you here about data protection in our company. We comply with the legal provisions of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Teleservices Act (TMG) and other data protection provisions.

You can trust us with your personal data. Your personal information is encoded by digital security systems and transferred to us. Technical systems protect our websites against damage, destruction or unauthorised access.

Scope of data protection

Data protection protects personal data. According to §3 sub-section 1 BDSG personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, postal address, email address or telephone number, and possibly also usage data such as your IP address.

Data collection and storage

There is generally no need to provide personal data to use our website. However, in order for us to offer our services, we do sometimes require your personal data. This applies when sending information or goods you have ordered, or when answering your individual questions.

When we need to send the goods you have ordered or perform a service, we collect and store your personal data only in as far as we require the data to provide the service or execute the contract. This may make it necessary to forward your personal data to companies we use to provide services or process orders. These companies include, for example, freight companies or other service providers. If we perform one of the following activities or any other miscellaneous activity or service and intend to gather and store your personal data, we will request your explicit consent at the relevant location on our website:

  • Sending you our newsletter
  • Taking part in our competitions
  • Credit or age verification to enable our services or payment transactions
  • Personalising our website
  • Other services and offers requiring your explicit consent that we may collect your personal data.


After completing your order, your data are blocked and then deleted after tax and commercial regulations are complied with, providing you have not explicitly approved further use of your data.

If you have registered your email address to receive our newsletter, we will use your email address to send our newsletter as well as using it for our own advertising purposes until you notify us you no longer wish to receive our newsletter.

Data collection using Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer to analyse how you use our website. They store, for instance, information on your operating system, your browser, your IP address, the website you visited immediately beforehand (referrer URL) and the date and time you visit our website. The information on how you use our website generated by this text file is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google uses this information to analyse how you use our website and compiles reports on website activity for the website provider, as well as offering other services related to website use and internet use. In as far as required by law or if third-parties process these data on behalf of Google, Google will pass on this information to third-parties. This information is anonymised or pseudoymised. If you would like to know more, visit Google.

Google uses doubleClick DART cookies

Users can deactivate the use of DART cookies by accessing the data protection provisions of the Google Network Advertising Initiative and Google Content Network.

This means that no direct personal data on users are stored apart from their IP address. This information ensures you will be recognised the next time you visit our website and makes navigation easier for you. Cookies enable us, for example, to adapt a website to your interests or to save your ID so that you don't need to enter it again every time you visit us.

Naturally you can also view our website without cookies. If you don't want us to recognise you when you visit us again, you can prevent cookies being stored on your hard drive by setting "Disable cookies" in your browser. You can find out how to do this in your browser manufacturer's operating instructions. Not accepting any cookies, however, may lead to difficulties in accessing our services.

You can prevent cookies being installed on your computer by changing the relevant setting in your browser. To do this, you need to deactivate the storage of cookies in your internet browser. For more information, see your internet browser user manual.

When you use this website, you consent to your data being processed by Google in the manner and for the purpose described above.

Collection and storage of use data

To optimise our website we collect and store data, such as the date and time you called up the page, the page you were on when you called up our page and such like. This is carried out anonymously without personally identifying the page user. It might also be that the user profile is generated using a pseudonym. In this case there is also no connection between the natural person referred to by the pseudonym and the usage data gathered. We also use cookies for collection and storage of usage data. These cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and are used to store statistics such as your operating system, browser, IP address, the website you were on before you visited us (referrer URL) and the time. We collect these data for statistical purposes only to further enhance our internet presence and ensure our internet offer is even more attractive. Data collection and storage is carried out in anonymised and pseudonymised form only and no conclusions can be drawn about you as a natural person.

Specific use of data

We comply with the principles of purpose-related data usage and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes you have consented to. Your personal data is not forwarded to third-parties unless you have given your explicit consent in as far as this is not necessary to perform a service or execute a contract. The transferral to state institutions and authorities entitled to obtain such information is performed only within the framework of legal disclosure or when we are obliged to provide such information by a court of law.

We also take corporate data protection very seriously. We require our staff and our service providers to maintain confidentiality and ensure compliance with protection laws.

The right to information and deletion of personal data

You can request free information about the personal data we have stored on you at all times without giving a reason. You can block, correct or delete the data stored with us at any time. You can also withdraw your consent that we collect and use your data without having to give any reasons at any time. Please direct your request to the contact address given under Legal Notices. We are available at all times for any other questions you may have about our data protection and how we process your personal data.

Please note that data protection provisions and data protection operations, e.g. with Google, can continuously change. It is, therefore, advisable and necessary to keep up-to-date on any changes to legislation and company, e.g. Google, practice.
