Legal basis of the data processing
Overview of the legal basis for data processing within our website.

Collection and use of your data
The extent and nature of the collection and use of your data differs according to whether you visit our website only to retrieve information or to take advantage of the services we offer:

Informational use
For the purely informational use of our websites, it is generally not necessary for you to provide personal data.

Rather, we collect and use in this case only those of your data that your Internet browser automatically transmits to us, such as

  • Date and time of the access to one of our web pages
  • Your browser type
  • the browser settings
  • the operating system used
  • the last page you visited
  • the amount of data transferred and the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.) and
  • Your IP address.

We collect and use this data during an informative visit exclusively in a non-personal form. This is done in order to enable the use of the web pages you have called up, for statistical purposes and to improve our Internet service. We only store the IP address for the duration of your visit, no personal evaluation takes place.

Contact form
The information collected in the contact form regarding name, address, e-mail address and telephone number as well as your message will only be used by us to answer your request. After completion of the processing, the data will be deleted. Only within the scope of the legally required archiving of e-mail traffic (e-mails are business and commercial letters) will data be stored for a maximum of 10 years.

Your data may be passed on to supporting service providers for the aforementioned purpose, which we have of course carefully selected. These may be technical service providers or service providers who support us in dispatch. Your data will otherwise only be passed on to other third parties if we are legally obliged to do so.

Your rights
Overview of the rights of the persons concerned (your rights) in connection with the data processing within our websites in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations.

Right to information
You have the right to information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing at any time.

Right to correction
You have the right to correct your stored data at any time. If you find discrepancies, you can also correct your data yourself in your customer account.

Right to deletion / blocking
You have the right to have your stored data deleted or blocked for further processing at any time if we are obliged to keep your data (e.g. invoices) due to legal storage obligations, see also Restriction of data processing.

Right to restriction of data processing
You have the right to limit the processing of your data,
if you dispute the accuracy of your data and cannot correct it yourself;
if the processing is unlawful but you do not wish it to be deleted;
if we, as the data controller, no longer need your data in principle, but you should need them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
or if you have lodged an objection to data processing and it is not yet clear whether justified reasons on our part for further data processing outweigh your reasons for objecting.

Right to object to the processing
If we send you (also in the future) direct advertising (e.g. newsletters), you have the right to object to this data processing at any time. You will also be informed of your right to object when you give your consent, and you will also be able to implement this right simply by technical means (e.g. opt-out link in a newsletter). This also applies to any profiling that could be directly connected with the direct advertising.

Should we ever use your data for purposes other than ordering in the web shop due to a weighing of interests (basically no), you have the right to object to this data processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. Should such data processing ever occur, we will inform you immediately. This also applies to possible pseudonymised or anonymised data processing for statistical purposes. For this reason, you can also object in principle to any web analysis technology we use (e.g. Google Analytics), including with an opt-out cookie, see the corresponding chapter (web analysis, integrated services, social media plugins and usage-based online advertising).

Right to data transferability
If requested by you, we will make your data, which you have provided us with personally, available to you in a structured, common and machine-readable format and / or transfer it to another responsible party (e.g. other webshop), the latter as far as this is technically possible.

Right to complain to the supervisory authorities
You have the right to complain at any time to the supervisory authority for data protection responsible for us.
The Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information

Right to withdraw consent
If you should give us your consent for a certain data processing, you can revoke this consent at any time. In principle, we only require consent in special cases, e.g. for sending out newsletters.

Data security
We also use technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data that is collected or collected, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against attack by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

The transmission of your personal data is encrypted using SSL technology (https) to prevent access by unauthorized third parties.
Communication by e-mail

When communicating by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security, so that we recommend that you send information with a high need for confidentiality by post.

Web analysis
It is important to us to design our websites as optimally as possible and thus make them attractive for our visitors. To do this, it is necessary for us to know which parts of it reach our visitors in which way. For this purpose we use the following technologies.

Google Analytics
Within our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google. Google Analytics uses cookies which are stored on your computer and which enable us to analyse the use of the websites. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have activated IP anonymisation on our websites. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with further services related to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: The use of alternative plug-ins or the deactivation of all cookies in your browser settings also prevents the analysis of your usage behaviour.

Alternatively, you can object to the use of your data by Google using the following link. An opt-out cookie is set, which prevents the future collection of your data when you visit our websites: Deactivate Google Analytics.
Attention: If you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.
