In particular, an objection to the processing of data for the purpose of direct marketing is permissible.

III. Information on data processing

Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations and no other information is provided below on individual processing procedures.

Cookies

a) Session cookies / session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your end device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies data are processed for the purpose of initiating or executing a contract.

If the processing does not serve to initiate or execute a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

These session cookies are deleted when you close your internet browser.

b) Third-party cookies

Where applicable, cookies from partner companies with whom we cooperate for the purposes of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website are also used with our website.

The details of this, in particular the purposes and legal basis of the processing of such third-party cookies, can be found in the following information.

c) Removal option

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by setting your Internet browser. You can also delete cookies that have already been stored at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the specific Internet browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you use. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

Customer account / registration function

If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will collect and store the data you enter during registration (e.g. your name, address or e-mail address) exclusively for pre-contractual services, for the fulfilment of the contract or for the purpose of customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders with us or to be able to offer you the so-called notepad function). At the same time we store the IP address and the date of your registration together with the time. Of course, this data will not be passed on to third parties.

Within the scope of the further registration process, your consent to this processing will be obtained and reference will be made to this data protection declaration. The data collected by us in this process will be used exclusively for the provision of the customer account.

Insofar as you consent to this processing, Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing.

If the opening of the customer account also serves pre-contractual measures or the fulfilment of the contract, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO.

In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you may revoke your consent to the opening and maintenance of the customer account at any time with effect for the future. To do this, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

The data collected in this respect will be deleted as soon as the processing is no longer necessary. In doing so, however, we must observe retention periods under tax and commercial law.

Newsletter

If you register for our free newsletter, the data requested by you for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and - optionally - your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time, we store the IP address of the Internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. During the further registration process, we will ask for your consent to send you the newsletter, describe the content in detail and refer you to this privacy policy. We will use the data collected exclusively for sending the newsletter - in particular, it will not be passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. To do so, you simply need to inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter.

Contact requests / contact option

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request - without their provision, we can not answer your request or at best limited.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been answered conclusively and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data, e.g. in the case of any subsequent contract processing.

User contributions, comments and evaluations

We offer you the opportunity to publish questions, answers, opinions or evaluations, hereinafter referred to as "contributions", on our Internet pages. If you make use of this offer, we process and publish your contribution, date and time of submission as well as the pseudonym used by you, if applicable.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do this, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

In addition, we also process your IP and e-mail address. The IP address is processed because we have a legitimate interest in taking or supporting further action if your contribution infringes the rights of third parties and/or it is otherwise unlawful.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defence that may be necessary.

Pinterest

We maintain an online presence on Pinterest to present our company as well as our services and to communicate with customers/prospects. Pinterest is a service of Pinterest Inc, 651 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA, 94107, USA.

In this respect, we would like to point out that there is a possibility that user data may be processed outside the European Union, in particular in the USA.

Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes and to create profiles of users. On the basis of these profiles, it is possible for Facebook Ireland Ltd., for example, to advertise users within and outside of Facebook according to their interests.

Linking social media via graphic or text link

We also promote presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents a connection from being automatically established to the respective server of the social network when a website with a social media advertisement is called up in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user redirected to the service of the respective social network.

After the user has been redirected, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way is processed in the USA.

This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the specific visit of the user to the personal account of the user. If the user interacts via a "share" button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user's personal user account and possibly published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. In addition, it is possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.

The following social networks are integrated into our site by linking:

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Due to the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyse the usage behaviour of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. This function allows Google to truncate the IP address within the EU or EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of visits to our website and the usage activities there. This data may also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the internet.

Google states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data. In addition, Google keeps a record of your IP address at

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners

Google provides you with further information on data protection law, for example on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

In addition, Google offers at

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

offers a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with the usual Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you call up our website. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about your visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services. If and which other web analytics services are used by us, you will of course also find out in this privacy policy.

Google AdWords with conversion tracking

In our website, we use the advertising component Google AdWords and the so-called conversion tracking. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Due to the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.

We use conversion tracking for targeted advertising of our offer. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

If you click on an ad placed by Google, the conversion tracking used by us saves a cookie on your terminal device. These so-called conversion cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve to identify you personally.

If the cookie is still valid and you visit a specific page of our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you have clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and that you have subsequently been redirected to our website.

Google uses the information obtained in this way to provide us with statistics on visits to our website. In addition, we receive information about the number of users who clicked on our ad(s) and about the pages of our website that were subsequently accessed. However, neither we nor third parties who also use Google AdWords will be able to identify you in this way.

You can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies using the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. At the same time, you can delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the specific Internet browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support.

Furthermore, Google also offers the following link

Klarna "CHECK-OUT

For the payment processing of orders via our online shop, we use the payment service of Klarna Bank AB, Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden, hereinafter referred to as "Klarna".

For this purpose, we have integrated the so-called check-out of Klarna into the final order page of our online shop.

The legal basis is the fulfilment of the contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b.) DSGVO. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in offering effective and secure payment options, so that a further legal basis follows from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.) DSGVO.

By integrating Klarna, your internet browser loads the check-out page from a Klarna server. The operating system used by you, type and version of your Internet browser, Internet page from which the check-out was requested, date and time of the call and the IP address are transmitted to Klarna - even without you interacting with the check-out page.

As soon as you complete the order in our online shop, the data you enter in the input fields of the check-out page will be processed by Klarna on its own responsibility to process the payment.

For the offered payment methods "PayPal" and "Prepayment", the processing without your further consent is limited to the transfer of payment data to us or PayPal.

For the offered payment methods "purchase on account", "hire purchase", "credit card", "direct debit" or "instant bank transfer", the following personal data in particular will be processed by Klarna for the purpose of payment processing as well as for identity and creditworthiness checks:

- Contact information, such as names, addresses, date of birth, gender, email address, telephone number, mobile phone number, IP address, etc.

- Order processing information, such as product type, product number, price, etc.

- Payment information, such as debit and credit card details (card number, expiry date and CCV code), billing details, account number, etc.

In case you select the payment method "purchase on account" or "installment purchase", Klarna collects and uses personal data and information about your previous payment behavior to decide whether to grant you the desired payment method. In addition, probability values for your future payment behaviour (so-called scoring) are used. The scoring is calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical methods.

Klarna provides information at
