We are delighted by your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we will inform you comprehensively about the handling of your data.
Storage of access data in Server-Logfiles
You can visit our website without giving information about yourself. We only save access data in so called server-logfiles, for example the name of the requested file, date and time of access, transferred amount of data and provider requests. This data is used solely for insuring that the site runs smoothly and to improve our E-Commerce-service. We do not allow any conclusion to be drawn as to who you are.
Gathering and use of data for the contract fulfillment and for opening a customer account
We gather personal data, if you disclose it voluntarily during the order placement, for a contact request (for example via contact form or e-mail) or if you open a customer account. Which data will be gathered is apparent from the respective forms. We use the disclosed data for the fulfillment of the contract and to process your requests. After completely fulfilling the contract or after deleting the customer account information, we will block your data for further use and delete it after the deadlines for storage under tax- and commercial code law have run out, if you didn’t explicitly agree to the continued use of your personal information or if we reserved the rights for a use exceeding the legal use of the data and about which we inform you below. The deletion of your customer account is possible any time and can be conducted either by sending a message to the contact information provided in the Site Notice or by employing the respective tools in the customer account.
Data sharing for contract fulfillment

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the required data already provided or we will request the data needed to be able to send you our newsletter regularly with your consent. The cancellation of your newsletter subscription is possible anytime and can be conducted either by sending a message to the contact information provided in the Site Notice or by clicking the designated link in the newsletter itself.
Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analysis
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google (Universal) Analytics utilizes methods, that make it possible to analyse your use of the website, like for example by planting so called cookies (text files) that are saved to your computer. The generated information about your use of the website is usually transferred to the Google server in the USA and stored there. By activating the IP-anonymisation on this website, the IP-address will be shortened for the transfer inside the member states of the European Union or to other contract states of the treaty for the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP-address is transferred to Google in the USA and shortened there. The transferred, anonymised IP-address gathered by Google Analytics from your browser will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can prevent the gathering of the data about your use of the website (including your IP-address) through the cookie for Google as well as the processing of the data by Google by clicking the following link and downloading and installing the plugin: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Alternatively to the Browser-Plugin you can click this link to prevent the use of Google Analytics on this website for the future. In this case an opt-out-cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies, you need to click the link again.
Use of Facebook Plugins
On our website we use so called Social Plugins (“Plugins”) of the Social network Facebook that is run by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are marked with the Facebook logo and the addition “Social Plug-in by Facebook” or “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of the Facebook Plugins and their look can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins
If you open a page of our website that utilizes such a plugin, your browser is connecting directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred directly by Facebook to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this plugin Facebook gets the information that your browser visited this particular page of our website, even if you don’t have Facebook or you are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP-address) is transferred directly from your browser to the Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged on to Facebook, Facebook can match your visit of our website directly to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugin, for example by clicking the like-button or by commenting, that information as well is transferred directly to the Facebook server and stored there. Additionally the information is published on your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends.
If you don’t want Facebook to match the data gathered from your visit to our website to your Facebook profile, you need to log off from Facebook before visiting our website. You can also prevent the loading of the Facebook Social Plugins with Add-Ons for your browser completely, for example with the “Facebook Blocker” (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/) or the script-blocker „NoScript“ (http://noscript.net/).
