For this purpose, we only receive statistical data from Facebook without any references to specific people. In this way, we can record the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. In particular, if you are registered with Facebook, we would also refer you to its information on data protection Please go to if you would like to withdraw your consent to the conversion pixel.

We use the "double opt-in process" to be able to send you our newsletter.

You can unsubscribe at any time without there being any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A written notification sent to the contact details provided in Clause 1 (e.g. email, fax or letter) will suffice for this. Of course, you will also find a link to unsubscribe in every newsletter.

Product recommendations

Independently of the newsletter, we regularly send you product recommendations by email. In this way, we send you information on the products in our range, which may interest you based on your last purchases. In doing so, we strictly conform to legal provisions. You can object to this at any time without there being any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A written notification sent to the contact details provided in Clause 1 (e.g. email, fax or letter) will suffice for this. Of course, you will also find a link to unsubscribe in every email.

Legal bases and storage period

The legal basis for data processing according to the above clauses is Art. 6(1)(1)(a), (b) and (f) GDPR. In particular, our interests in data processing lie in initiating, concluding and fulfilling contracts, as well as in direct advertising and product information.

Unless specifically stated, we only store personal data for as long as this is required for fulfilling the intended purpose or by law.

Right to delete ("right to be forgotten")

According to Art. 17(1) GDPR, you have the right to demand from us that your personal data be deleted immediately and we are therefore obligated to delete your personal data immediately, unless one of the following reasons applies:

If we have released personal data and we are obligated to delete it according to Art. 17(1) GDPR, we will take appropriate measures considering the available technology and implementation costs as well as the technical type in order for the Data Controller for the data processing, who is processing the personal data, to be informed that you have requested the deletion of all links to these personal data or of copies or reproductions of these personal data.

For reasons arising from your specific situation, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time based on Art. 6(1)(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies for profiling carried out based on these provisions. We no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate that there are obligatory, protection-worthy reasons for the processing, which prevail over your interests, rights and freedoms, or that the processing is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If personal data is processed by us in order to operate direct advertising, you therefore have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of this type of advertising at any time; this also applies for profiling insofar as this relates to such direct advertising.

For reasons arising from your specific situation, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, which takes place for economic or historic research purposes or for statistical purposes according to Art. 89(1) GDPR, unless the processing is required to fulfil a purpose that is in the public interest.

Automated decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to decisions that are exclusively based on automated processing, including profiling, which take legal effect against you or significantly affect you in a similar way. Automated decision-making based on collected personal data does not take place.

Right to withdraw consent relating to data protection

You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time.

Right to complain to a supervisory authority

You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, especially in the Member State in which you reside or work or in which the suspected infringement occurred, if you believe that the processing of your personal data is illegal.

Data security

We place the utmost important on the security of your data within the context of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

Your personal data is transferred at our end in an encrypted format. This applies for your orders and also for customer logins. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system; however, please note that data transfer on the Internet (e.g. email communications) can have security vulnerabilities. Vulnerability-free data protection against access by third parties is not possible.

To secure your data, we implement technical and organisational measures according to Art. 32 GDPR and we always ensure that these correspond to state-of-the-art technology.

Furthermore, we cannot guarantee that our services will be available at certain times; faults, disruptions or failures cannot be excluded. The servers used by us are regularly and carefully secured.

Transfer of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries

As a matter of principle, we only use your personal data within our company. If and to the extent that we engage third parties within the context of fulfilling a contract (such as logistics service providers), these parties only receive personal data under the scope in which the transfer is required to perform the corresponding service.

If we outsource certain parts of the data processing ("job processing"), we bind the job processors contractually to only using personal data in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensuring that the affected person's rights are protected.

Apart from the cases cited in Clause 2 of this Statement, data transfers to agencies or people outside the EU do not take place and are not planned.
