Collection of Access Data
The provider collects data about every access to the online offer (so-called server log files). Access data includes the name of the retrieved web page, the file, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred, the successful retrieval message, the browser type, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL, the IP address, and the requesting provider. The provider uses the log data without assignment to the person of the user or other profile creation according to the legal regulations only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the online offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data at a later date if there is reason to suspect illegal use due to specific reasons.
Collection and Use of Personal Data
Personal data will be collected and used by the provider as legally permitted or the user consents to the data collection. As a rule, users are aware that data such as name, e-mail address and message when using the order form is stored. Personal data (such as name, e-mail address, address, payment data) given for the purpose of ordering goods are used by the seller for the fulfillment and processing of the agreement. Data will be treated confidentially, transmitted in encrypted form, and will not be passed on to third parties who are not involved in the ordering, delivery and payment process.
When contacting the provider (via contact form or e-mail), the user’s data will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in the event that complications should arise. The provider has undertaken organizational, contractual and technical security measures to ensure that the provisions of the data protection laws are complied with and prevent accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.
Data Forwarding to Third Parties
A user’s data will only be forwarded to third parties if it is legally permitted or the user has consented to the forwarding. This would be when the data is passed on to fulfill the contractual obligations concerning the user, for example, and the postal address is handed over to a forwarding company after a shop order. Or if the data is requested from the authorities such as law enforcement agencies.
The personal data of a user will by no means be sold to third parties for advertising purposes or for the purpose of creating user profiles.
The provider uses “cookies” as part of its online presence. Cookies are small files which can be stored on the user’s computer and stores information for providers. Temporary cookies are deleted after closing the browser, permanent cookies are retained for a given period of time, and can be made available when the online presence is accessed again. Cookies are used to facilitate the use of the service. For example, a cookie stores a user’s purchase cart status.

The provider uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ( “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on users’ computers and which allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the users is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, in the case of the activation of the IP anonymisation on this website, the IP address of the users of Google will be previously abridged within the Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. IP anonymisation is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the users to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services related to the website usage and the internet usage against the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly. The provider, however, advises users that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. Users may also prevent Google from tracking the data generated by the cookie and related to its use (including your IP address), as well as the processing of such data by Google by using the browser plug-in available under the following link Download and install: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Use of Facebook Social Plugins
Social plugins ( “plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ( “Facebook”), are used on this website. The plugins are visible on one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user visits a web page of the online offer that contains such a plugin, his browser builds a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s browser and integrated into the website by the browser. The provider, therefore, has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook is using regarding this plug-in and, therefore, informs the users according to their knowledge. By incorporating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called on for the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If a user interacts with the plugins–for example, by pressing the Like button or by commenting–the corresponding information will be sent directly to Facebook by Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, however, there is the possibility that Facebook will find and save its IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights and settings for the protection of the privacy of the users, can be found in Facebook’s privacy statement: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him/her through this online offering and to link to his/her member data stored on Facebook, he/she must log out of Facebook before visiting the internet presence and delete relevant Facebook cookies. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for the browser, for example with “Facebook Blocker”.
+1 Google+ Button
In this case, the buttons of the Google+ social network (e.g., “+1” button) operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ( “Google”) are used. When a user browses a web page that contains this button, the browser connects directly to Google’s servers. The content of the buttons is transmitted by Google directly to its browser and is integrated into the website. Therefore, the provider has no influence on the extent of the data that Google collects with the buttons. According to Google, no personal data are collected without a click on the button. Only when members of Google+ are logged in would such data, including the IP address, be collected and processed. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as the rights and preferences of the users to protect your privacy, can be found in Google’s Privacy Notice on the “+1” button: http://www.google.com /intl/en/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQ: http://bit.ly/r3Qmer. If a user is a Google+ member and does not want Google to collect data about her/him through her/his internet presence and link it to member data stored on Google, the user must log out of Google Plus before visiting this site and delete Google’s cookies within the browser.
