We appreciate your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below we will provide detailed information about the handling of your data.

Collection, processing and use of your data
You can visit our site without providing any information about yourself. We only store access data without personal references such as the name of your Internet service provider, the site from which you visit us or the name of the file. This data is used solely to improve our offer and does not allow any conclusion on your person.

Personal data is only collected if you provide it in the context of your orderering process or open an account or register for our newsletter. We will use the information provided by you without your explicit permission solely for the purpose of processing your order. Upon completion of the contract and full payment your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after the legally established tax and commercial storage periods unless you have explicitly consented to the further use of your data. When registering for our newsletter, your e-mail address is used with your permission for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Use of Cookies

On several pages, we use cookies to make visiting our site attractive and to enable the use of certain functions. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of these cookies will be deleted from your hard drive after the browser session is over (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to recognise your computer when you next visit (so-called persistent cookies). These cookies are used to welcome you with your username and make it unnecessary  to re-enter your password or to fill out forms with your data when you wish to make a new order. Our partner companies are not allowed to collect and process personal data on our website by using cookies.

Disclosure of personal data 

Your data may be transferred to the shipping company to the extent necessary to deliver the goods (including email addresses to allow communication between the shipping company and the client). For payment we pass on your payment information to the agency responsible for the paying process.
