We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. It is our declared intention to inform users of our website when and for what purpose we save data and how we use it. As a private law company we are subject to the German Federal Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Law. We have taken measures to ensure that we and our external service providers comply with data protection regulation. 
The personal data you enter when visiting our website, e.g. when you order online, is transmitted in encrypted form. Our encryption system is the industry standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), which is in use worldwide for many leading web applications. In order to protect your data against unauthorised access or fraud, we have extensive technical and operative security measures in place. These security standards are regularly reviewed and are up-dated in line with technological developments. Subject to statutory provisions, we accept no liability for damages or adverse effects incurred by computer viruses. 
In order to inform you of delivery up-dates and status, we transmit the data of the delivery address and your e-mail address to our carrier Deutsche Post DHL Group (Go Green). 
We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small data, which are stored on your device and save certain settings and data in your browser for communication with our system. We use cookies to make your online experience with us as easy as possible. For example, a cross-page display of your shopping basket would be impossible without the use of cookies. The cookies we use in our shop system have a maximum expiry time of one hour after terminating your browser session. If you subscribe to our newsletter, we use a cookie with an expiry time of 14 days. In any case, it is ensured that upon expiry of each of those time periods, no data from us remains on your device. In no case will we save any personal data. Via your browser settings you can determine, whether at all and to what extent your browser accepts cookies. Accepting cookies is not a pre-requisite for browsing our online shop. Please note, however, that use of the shopping basket and ordering is only possible once you have activated cookies. We also recommend that you log out entirely after using a computer that you share with others and whose settings allow the use of cookies. 
In addition, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics also uses cookies which allow for an analysis of how you use the website. The click behaviour of visitors is saved anonymously (e.g. products viewed, categories, and entries to shopping basket). In order to ensure anonymity, your IP address is shortened when saved. The processing and evaluation of data is carried out in EU and non-EU countries (e.g. Google Analytics in the USA). The web analysis service uses the collected information to analyse your use of the website and to collate reports on website activities for us. Furthermore, they are used to deliver services linked to website use and online use. The web analysis service may transmit the information to third parties, provided it is prescribed by law or the third party processes the data on behalf of the web analysis service.

This website uses the retargeting technology by Google Inc. (‘Google’). This allows for users of our website, who have already taken an interest in our shop and products, to be addressed with personalised interest- based advertisements. The display of advertisements follows a cookie-based analysis of previous usage, but without saving personal data. The retargeting technology allows for a cookie to be saved on your computer or mobile device, to collect anonymised data relating to your interests and to individualise advertisements according to the saved information.

When you visit our website, a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server is established via the plugin. Facebook thereby receives the information that your IP address has visited our website. If you click on the Facebook ‘Like’ button while being logged on your Facebook account, you will be able to link content from our site with your Facebook profile. Thereby, Facebook can link the visit to our site with your user account. Please note that we as site provider have no knowledge of the content and use of data transmitted to Facebook.

With the help of the Google +1 button you can publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button you and other users receive personalised content by Google and their partners. Google saves the information that you have rated content with +1 as well as information on the site that you viewed while clicking +1. Your +1 together with your profile name and your picture may be displayed in Google services for information purposes such as in search results or in your Google profile or at other locations on websites and in advertisements on the internet. Google collects information on your +1 activity to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button you need a worldwide publicly available Google profile that contains at least the name chosen for the profile. This name will be used for all Google services. In some cases this name can replace other names that you have used for sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who either know your e-mail address or have other identifying information. 
Apart from the purpose of usage described above, the information provided by you may be used in accordance with Google’s privacy policy. Google may publish summarised statistics on the +1-activities of users or passthem on to partners like publishers, advertisers or linked websites.
