  • the current internet protocol address used by your PC or your router
  • date and time
  • browser type and version
  • the operating system of your PC
  • the pages viewed by you

IV. Legal basics

The General Data Protection Regulation enables processing of personal data according to sect. 6 para. 1 GDPR in particular in the following cases:

  • The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes (sect. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR).
  • Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (sect. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR).
  • Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject (sect. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR).
  • Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child (sect. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR).

Apart from this, you may visit our website without providing any information concerning your person.

Personal data (e.g. your name, address data or contact details), which you disclose to us on your own, e.g. in the scope of a query by email to the contacts named on our homepage, will only be stored by us and processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided these data to us. These data are processed based on sect. 6 para. 1 a; 6 para. 1 f GDPR.

We would like to point out that the data transmission on the internet (e.g. in the case of email communication) may involve gaps in security. Complete data privacy against third-party access is not possible. Therefore, you should send us any confidential data on another path, e.g. by mail.

Online shop

If you want to buy any goods via our shop, you need to register on the corresponding page. There is some mandatory information that is marked with an asterisk (*) (e.g. your name, gender, address data and email address as well as a password). These data are transmitted encrypted (recognisable by the protocol "https", which is automatically switched to) and stored in a profile. You can then personally log in and order goods with an individual password and email address.

These personal data that you disclose to us in the scope of registration shall only be processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided these data to us, e.g. to process the orders placed by you.

If a longer business relationship is foreseeable, we may perform a creditworthiness check (Creditreform).

The legal basis for processing of your personal data is sect. 6 para. 1 b), sect. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.

Contact form

Personal data (e.g. your name, address data or contact details), which you disclose to us on your own via one of our contact forms will only be stored by us and processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided these data to us.

This website uses Brevo to send newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany. Brevo is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on the servers of Sendinblue GmbH in Germany.

Data analysis by Brevo

With the help of Brevo, it is possible for us to analyze our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message was opened and which links, if any, were clicked. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked on particularly often.

In addition, we can recognize whether certain predefined actions were performed after opening/clicking (conversion rate). For example, we can see whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.

Brevo also allows us to subdivide ("cluster") newsletter recipients according to various categories. This allows newsletter recipients to be subdivided by age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.

If you do not want any analysis by Brevo, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each newsletter message.

Legal basis

The data processing is based on your consent or the legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and 1 lit. f DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

Storage duration

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
