Guaranteed trust/data protection

Our data protection policy is in accord with the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). As part of this data protection information, we would like to inform you that your data (name, delivery and invoice address, bank details) necessary for transaction processing are stored by us and passed on to logistics companies and possibly to affiliated companies involved during order processing. All personal data is of course treated as confidential. We always pay full attention to your protectable interests. In addition, we use the appropriate data for creditworthiness checks. From time to time, we may pass on addresses to carefully selected companies whose products might be of interest for you, as permitted by law and in compliance with strict specifications.

Use of social plugins

Social plugins to various social web-based networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Instagram) are integrated on our web pages. These enable you to set bookmarks on those pages and share those bookmarks with other users of the social web-based networks. You can recognize social plugins from the logos which can be viewed on the web pages of the social web-based networks.

When you open a page on our website that contains those social plugins, a direct link is opened to the servers of the social web-based networks and from there the plugin logo and underlying functions are sent directly to your browser displaying our website. If you are logged on to the social web-based network at that point in time with your user name and password, the information that you are visiting our site will be sent there and can be assigned to your user account there. If you interact with the social plugins, for example share one of our pages or use the Facebook "like" or "share" or the Twitter "Tweet This" function, the contents of our pages will be linked to your profile in the social web-based network. If you are not a member of the social web-based networks or logged off before visiting our shop, there is nevertheless a possibility that at least your IP address will be sent and stored there.

We would like to point out that other data protection policies apply for linked web pages of third-party operators. The website operators' storage and use of data generated by using these linked pages may go beyond our data protection policy. The further processing on the linked social web-based networks, storage duration and also the intended use are determined solely by those operators.

If you activate IP anonymization on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Convention on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to render other services related to the use of the website and the Internet on behalf of the operator of this website. Google will not combine the IP address sent by your browser for Google Analytics with other data held by Google. Thus neither we nor the operators of the pertinent analysis tool can record personal information that gives an indication of the user's identity. Further details about web tracking and data protection of these operators and their technology can be found on the following pages of the companies in question: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we must point out that this might prevent you from being able to use all the functions offered by this website.

We have activated the following Google Analytics advertising functions on our website:

  • Remarketing with Google Analytics
  • Reports on impressions in the Google display network
  • Google Analytics reports on performance broken down by demographic features and interests
  • Integrated services for which Google Analytics is required so that data about cookies can be captured for advertisement preferences and anonymous IDs

 You can deactivate Google Analytics with the currently available options at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
