Data Protection Declaration and Data Protection Notice
as well as information about any consent that you may have granted

As the responsible authority in accordance with the data protection regulations, we want to assure you that the collection, storage, alteration, transmission, blockage, deletion and usage of your personal data in our company is always carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations and other legal requirements for the protection of your personal data.

 

The purposes of collection, processing and usage of personal data and of any consent granted

The collection of your personal data by us as part of the ordering process as well as the subsequent processing and usage of these data is performed in order to fulfil our own business purposes as part of the contractual relationship concluded.

If you open a customer account, then the collection, processing and usage of the personal data is carried out so that personal data no longer needs to be input again in the event of future orders.

If you have given your consent in order to receive our newsletter, then the collection, processing and usage of your email address is carried out for promotional purposes. In this case, you have granted the following consent:

“I am in agreement that I will be informed about interesting offers via e-mail and I therefore grant approval for my email address to be included in the newsletter distributor. This consent can be withdrawn at any time and without stating any reasons, effective immediately.”

 

Withdrawal of consent

If you have granted consent, then you can withdraw this consent at any time and without stating any reasons, effective immediately. An informal message is sufficient for this purpose.

 

Use of cookies

We use so-called cookies in order to be able to provide you with our services in a more individual manner. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies that we use will be deleted again after your browser session has ended, i.e. after your browser has been closed (so-called session cookies). Other cookies will remain on your end device and will enable us or our partner companies to recognise your browser once again on your next visit (persistent cookies). You can set your browser such that you will be informed about the placement of cookies and you can decide individually about the cookies, you can decide to accept cookies in certain cases, or you can exclude them in general. The functionality of our website may be restricted if cookies are not accepted.

 

Transmission of personal data to third parties

The transmission of your personal data to third parties by us is carried out exclusively to service provider partners who are involved as part of the contract implementation, for example the logistics company that is commissioned for the delivery and the credit institution that is commissioned for the payment. In cases where your personal data are transmitted to third parties, the scope of the transferred data is however restricted to the minimum required.

 

Your rights

You have the right to receive information free of charge about the personal data that have been stored regarding your person. We would like to ask you to contact the address given in the provider identification for any enquiries regarding this. If any of the personal data regarding your person that are stored by us are incorrect, then the data will of course be corrected if you provide us with the corresponding information.

You also have the right to withdraw your consent for the storage of personal data regarding your person at any time and without stating any reasons, effective immediately. An informal message is sufficient for this purpose. If a corresponding communication is received, then the stored data regarding your person shall be deleted, unless the data affected are still required for the fulfilment of the obligations of a concluded contractual relationship, or if the statutory regulations prevent such a deletion. In this case, then the personal data affected shall be blocked instead of being deleted.
