  6. a) Cookies
    Some web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
    Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.“ They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser when you next visit our site.
    You can set your browser so that it informs you about the use of cookies and you decide on a case by case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be set to accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when you close your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
    Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO (General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR). The operator of this site has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to guarantee a technical service both flawless and optimized. If other cookies (e.g. those used to analyze your surfing behaviour) are stored, they will be treated separately in this data privacy statement.
  7. b) Processing of data (customer and contract data)
    We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the justification, content development or modification of the legal relationship (stock data). This is done based on Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO (General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR), which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract. We collect, process and use your personal data concerning the use of our website (usage data) only to the extent required to enable you to access our service or to bill you for the same.

Collected customer data will be deleted after the completion of the service or after the termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

  1. c) Data transfer in case of contract conclusion for online-shops, dealers and dispatch of goods
    We communicate personal data to third parties only if this should become necessary in the scope of the contract execution, for example to the company entrusted with the delivery of goods or the financial institute entrusted with the payment process. A further transfer of data is excluded, unless you have explicitly consented to its disclosure. The same applies to a transfer of your data to third parties, e.g. for promotional purposes.
    This is done based on Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO (General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR), which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Transfer to third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this occurs in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this will only take place if it occurs for the fulfilment of our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we have data processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 ss. GDPR are met. This means, for example, processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. for the USA by the “Privacy Shield”) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).
