1. General

1.1 What is personal data
Personal data is information that discloses, or might disclose, the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. As far as possible, the collection of personal data is waived.

1.2 Handling of personal data
Personal data is used exclusively for establishing the contract, content, implementation or execution of the contractual relationship (Art. 6 Para. b DSGVO). In addition, personal data will only be processed if we have obtained your consent (Art. 6 Para. a DSGVO). Data is not passed on to third parties. Data will be only be forwarded to the shipping company responsible for delivery solely to fulfil the contract – insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. When processing payments, the required payment data will be forwarded to the credit institution commissioned to make the payment, and if applicable to the payment service provider selected and commissioned. The processing of your personal data takes place exclusively within the EU.

1.3 Usage data
When visiting the website, general technical information is collected – the IP address used, time and duration of the visit, browser type and if necessary the originating page. This usage data is registered in a logfile for technical reasons and can be used and stored for statistical purposes regarding this website. No linkage is made between usage data and your other personal data.

1.4 Duration of data storage
We only store your personal data for as long as it is required by law (in particular tax law) once the purpose for which the data was collected is over.

2. Your rights

2.1 Information
You can request information about whether we process your personal data, and if this is the case you have a right to information about this personal data and to any other information referred to in Art. 15 DSGVO.

2.2 Right of rectification
You have the right to correct incorrect personal data relating 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 request that personal data concerning you be deleted immediately. We are obliged to delete it forthwith, especially if one of the following reasons applies:

  • Your personal information is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed
  • You revoke your consent to the processing of your data, and there is no other legal basis to process it.
  • Your data was unlawfully processed.

The right of cancellation does not exist if your personal data is required to assert, exercise or defend our legal rights.

2.4 Right to restrict processing
You have the right to require us to restrict the processing of your personal data if

  • You dispute the accuracy of the data and we must therefore check for its accuracy
  • The processing is unlawful, and you oppose deletion of the data and demand the restriction of its use instead
  • We no longer need the data, but you still need it to assert, exercise or defend your rights
  • You have objected to the processing of your data, and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons prevail over your reasons.

2.5 Right of data portability
You have the right to receive the personal information that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another person without hindrance from us, provided the processing is based on your consent or by a contract, and the processing is carried out by us using automated procedures.

2.6 Right of revocation
Insofar as the processing of your data is based on consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.

2.7 General, and the right to appeal
The exercise of your rights above is basically free of charge. You have the right to contact the responsible supervisory authority – the State Data Protection Commissioner – directly in cases of complaint.

3.2 Sessions und Cookies
To operate the website, we may use cookies or server-side sessions in which data can be stored. Cookies also enable e.g. a personal greeting using member names. Cookies are files that are stored on your hard drive by a web page to automatically recognize your computer the next time you visit a website, and to adapt the use of the website to you. Some of the cookies used will be deleted after the end of the browser session. These are the so-called session cookies. Other cookies remain on your device to enable browser recognition during a later visit to our website (persistent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can individually decide on their acceptance or exclusion, whether for specific cases or in general. Please note that if cookies are disabled you may not be able to use some of the website features. We make sure that no personal data is taken over from sessions by cookies, and that cookies are only used if this is necessary for the website. This consideration therefore clearly shows that there are no overriding interests against that (Art. 6 Para. f DSGVO).
