The access data include the name of the retrieved web page, the file, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred, the successful retrieval report, the browser type, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL, the IP address, and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the log data without assignment to the person of the user or other profile creation according to the legal regulations only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, the security and the optimization of the online offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data subsequently, if there are concrete grounds for the legitimate suspicion of unlawful use.

Personal data are collected and used by the provider only if this is legally permitted or the users consent to the data collection. As a rule, it is recognizable for users when using the service which data are stored, such as name, e-mail address and message when using the order form.

The personal data (such as name, e-mail address, address, payment data) for the purpose of ordering goods are used by the vendor to fulfill and process the contract. These data are treated confidentially, transmitted in encrypted form and are not passed on to third parties who are not involved in the ordering, delivery and payment process.

When contacting the provider (by means of a contact form or e-mail), the user’s data are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in the event that connection questions arise. The provider has undertaken organizational, contractual and technical security measures to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act and to prevent accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.

 

DATA PROVISION TO THIRD PARTIES

The data of the users are only forwarded to third parties, if this is legally permitted or a user has consented to the forwarding.

This is, for example, the case when the data is passed on to fulfill the contractual obligations against the user and the postal address is transferred to a forwarding company after a shop order. Or if the data are requested by competent authorities such as law enforcement agencies.

The personal data of the users are by no means sold or passed on to third parties for advertising purposes or for the purpose of creating user profiles.

 

COOKIES

The provider uses “cookies” as part of his online offer. Cookies are small files, which can be saved on the user’s computer and can save information for providers. Temporary cookies are deleted after the browser is closed, persistent cookies are kept for a certain period of time, and can be made available when the online offer is accessed again.

Cookies are used on the one hand to facilitate the use of the service. For example, a cookie saves a user’s basket status.

The user can influence the use of the cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or prevent cookies from being stored. The provider tries to make the online offer in such a way that the use of cookies is not necessary. However, it is pointed out that the use and, in particular, the use of the services without cookies is restricted.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

The provider uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on users’ computers and which allow you to analyze the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, in the case of the activation of the IP anonymisation on this website, the IP address of the users of Google will be previously abridged within Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and abbreviated there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the users, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the internet usage against the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. The users can prevent the storage of the cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software. However, the provider advises the user that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. Users may also prevent Google from tracking the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and its use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by using the browser plug-in available under the following link Download and install: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

 

USE OF FACEBOOK SOCIAL PLUGINS 

Social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”), are used on this website. The plugins are visible on one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumb up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user calls a web page of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his browser builds a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s browser and integrated into the website by the browser. The provider has therefore no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook is using this plugin and therefore informs the users according to their knowledge: By incorporating the plugins, Facebook is informed that a user has called the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account.

If a user interacts with the plugins, for example press the like button or comment, the corresponding information is sent directly to Facebook by Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is the possibility that Facebook will find and save his IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights and settings for the protection of the privacy of the users, can be found in Facebook’s privacy statement: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ ,

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him through this online offering, and to link to his or her member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the Internet presence and delete the appropriate Facebook cookies. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for the browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.

 

REVISION, CHANGES, AUTHORIZATIONS AND UPDATES

The user has the right, on request, to receive free of charge information about the personal data that was stored by the provider about him. Contact details can be found in the provider’s imprint. In addition, the user has the right to correct incorrect data, blockage and deletion of his personal data, in so far as no statutory retention is required.

 

AMENDMENTS OF THE PRIVACY POLICY

The provider reserves the right to change the privacy policy in order to adapt it to changes in the law or to changes in the service and data processing.
