You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. 

Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted to us or our web hoster / IT service provider by your internet browser and stored in log data (so-called server log files). This stored data includes, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the IP address, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO out of legitimate interest in ensuring the trouble-free operation of our website as well as to improve our offer.

When using the contact form, we collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) only to the extent provided by you. The data processing serves the purpose of contacting you. By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the transmitted data. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO with your consent.

You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

Use of Google reCAPTCHA 

On our website, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). The query serves the purpose of distinguishing the input by a human or by automated, machine processing. For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and further used there. In addition, the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service will be transmitted to Google. This data is processed by Google within the European Union and, if necessary, also in the USA. An adequacy decision of the European Commission, the "Privacy Shield", is in place for data transfers to the USA. Google participates in the "Privacy Shield" and has submitted to the requirements. 

The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from the legitimate interest to protect our website from automated spying, abuse and SPAM.

When you place an order, we collect and process your personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment and processing of your order and for dealing with your enquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide it will result in no contract being concluded. The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you. 

Your data is passed on, for example, to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers you have chosen, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers.

Use of social plug-ins by means of "Shariff 

We use social network plug-ins on our website. To keep you in control of your data, we use the privacy-safe "Shariff" buttons.

Without your express consent, no links are established to the servers of the social networks and consequently no data is transmitted.

"Shariff" is a development by the specialists of the computer magazine c't. It enables more privacy on the net and replaces the usual "share" buttons of social networks. You can find more information about the Shariff project here https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html.

When you click on the buttons, a pop-up window appears in which you can log in to the respective provider with your data. Only after this active login by you will a direct connection to the social networks be established.

By logging in, you consent to the transmission of your data to the respective social media provider. Among other things, your IP address and the information about which of our pages you have visited will be transmitted. If you are connected to one or more of your social network accounts at the same time, the collected information will also be assigned to your corresponding profiles. You can only prevent this assignment by logging out of your social media accounts before visiting our website and before activating the buttons. The social networks named below are integrated by means of the "Shariff" function.

For more information on the scope and purpose of the collection and use of the data, as well as your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the linked data protection notices of the providers.
