Privacy policy

Unless otherwise stated below, the provision of your personal data is not required by law or contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Failure to provide it will have no consequences. This applies only to the extent that no other indication is made in the subsequent processing operations.
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Server log files
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information.
Each 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 from our overriding legitimate interest in ensuring trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offer.
Your data may be transferred to third countries outside the European Union for which an adequacy decision of the EU Commission is available. If there is no adequacy decision by the EU Commission, such as for transfers to the USA, the data transfers are based, among other things, on standard contractual clauses as suitable guarantees for the protection of personal data, which can be viewed at: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_de (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_de).

If the contact is made for other reasons, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from our overriding legitimate interest in processing and responding to your request. In this case, you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data relating to you based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO for reasons arising from your particular situation.

Orders

Collection, processing and forwarding of personal data when placing orders
When you place an order, we collect and process your personal data only to the extent necessary for the fulfillment and processing of your order and to process your requests. 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 (1) lit. b DSGVO and is necessary for the performance of a contract with you.
A transfer of your data takes place, for example, to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers selected by you, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers. In all cases, we strictly observe the legal requirements. The scope of the data transfer is limited to a minimum.
Your data may be transferred to third countries outside the European Union, for which an adequacy decision of the EU Commission is available. If no adequacy decision of the EU Commission is available, such as for transfers to the USA, the data transfers are based, among other things, on standard contractual clauses as appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data, which can be viewed at: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_de (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_de).
