Your visit to our Internet pages is only saved as an anonymous visit for statistical purposes, for the optimisation of our Internet presence and for the purpose of system security. It contains no personal data. The data collected, in this connection, is the domain name or the IP address of your Internet provider, the operating system of your PC and your browser type. The Internet pages from which you are visiting us, as well as the Internet pages you view on our website, the access date as well as the length of the visit are also automatically saved. Conclusions on your person and the creation of user profiles are not possible from this data. You remain fully anonymous as an individual user. We use session cookies for the shopping basket function of our shop, in order to make the use of our online shop more attractive for you, to enable certain functions and to be able to clearly assign jobs/orders to you as our customers. In addition, we do not track your search path.

b. Collection of personal data

We collect and save your personal data only for the purpose of market and opinion research and beyond that only where this is required for the processing and handling of your order or where you have given us your consent for this purpose, e.g. for the creation of a customer account or where you have decided to register for our newsletter.

The collected personal data is used as a checkback for proof of identification and for the handling of queries and orders. For the handling of queries, your data is saved in our interested parties log, however, it is not used for any purpose beyond the processing of queries. As a customer, you will receive a limited amount of advertising mail per post and digitally.

Our employees have access to your data, when they are processing and handling your business affairs. They have been made aware that personal data may only be processed or used for the associated objective of fulfilment of the respective legitimate task and that these obligations remain after the action has been completed. Furthermore, our employees have received detailed instruction on the data protection laws. They are also committed to data secrecy and confidentiality and have been made aware of the legal consequences in the case of violations.

With the exception of the involved mail-order firms and payment companies, we do not pass on your personal data to third parties.

The employees of this partner have been, similar to ours, instructed in detail on the data protection laws.
