Privacy Notice


We are happy to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in our products and our company. When using our website the protection of your privacy is important to us. Please therefore take note of the following information:

1) Collection, processing and use of personal data

You can visit our website without submitting personal data. We only require personal data and information in order to process and complete a purchase contract, to create a customer account or to enter into contact with us. This data will only be used to process your purchase or request unless you have otherwise specifically given permission. Following the completion of your purchase or request your information will be stored in accordance with tax and commercial law and will be deleted after the required legal time period.

Your email address which we receive from you for purchase and/or inquiry purposes will only be used by us to send you our newsletter containing information about other or similar products or services, and only if you permit this. You can revoke the permission for use of your email address at any time, incurring no costs other than those of transmission costs at the basic rate. This revocation, (resulting in the cancellation of our newsletter), can be made by sending us an email to this effect to our email address (see Disclaimer for details).

2) Disclosure of personal data

2.1 The personal data submitted to us will be passed on to a delivery company insofar as this is necessary to complete the contract. Your payment details will be passed on to the relevant payment institute in order to effect payment and complete the contract.

2.2 If payment is by credit card via PayPal or debit via Pay Pal we pass on your payment details to PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxemburg.

2.3 If the delivery is being undertaken by DHL (Deutsche Post AG, Charles-de-Gaulle-Straße 20, 53113 Bonn, Germany) we pass on your email address to DHL before delivery in order to coordinate a successful delivery, provided that you have specifically permitted this as follows: "I agree that my email address can be passed on to DHL (Deutsche Post AG, Charles-de-Gaulle-Straße 20, 53113 Bonn, Germany) in order that DHL can contact me before delivery to coordinate a delivery time. This agreement can be revoked at any time by email to the email address contained in the disclaimer."

Otherwise we pass on the name and delivery address to DHL. In this case a prior coordination of the delivery time is not possible.

3) Cookies

This website uses so-called "Cookies" in order to make our internet site more user-friendly, more secure and effective - for example to speed up navigation within the website. Cookies also make it possible for us to measure the number of pages called up and the general navigation. Cookies are small text files which are transferred to your hard disc and saved in your browser. We would like to point out that some of these cookies are transferred from our server to your computer system, whereby most of them are so-called "session cookies". "Session-Cookies" are characterised by the fact that they are automatically deleted from the hard disc after the visit to our website is terminated. Other cookies remain on your hard disc and make it possible for us to recognise your computer system next time you visit our website, (so-called longterm cookies). Of course you can reject these cookies insofar as your computer system makes this possible. Please note that certain functions may not be possible, or only to a limited extent, if your browser is programmed to reject cookies.

4) Use of Social Plugins

4.1 Our website uses so-called Social Plugins ("plugins") which are operated by the social network Facebook: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. These plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or contain the following text: "Social Plugin from Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin". You can learn more about Facebook plugins and how they look on the following homepage: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins

If you call up a page on our website which contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The plugin content is transferred by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page you are viewing. By means of this connection, Facebook receives the information that you have called up this particular page on our website, even if you are not a registered Facebook user or if you are not logged on to Facebook at that moment. This information (including your IP-address) is transferred from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the US and is stored there.

If you are logged on to Facebook, your visit to our website can be assigned by Facebook directly to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins e.g. by using the "Like" function or by posting a comment, this information will also be transferred to the Facebook servers and stored. This information will also be shown on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.

For further information about your rights, about the purpose and extent of this data collection as well as further processing and use of this data by Facebook, also about the configuration of protection and privacy options in your settings menu, please consult Facebook´s Data Protection information at the following address: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

If you do not wish Facebook to assign the information gathered by visiting our website to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. Furthermore, you can completely block Facebook plugins by using add-ons for your browser e.g. with the "Facebook blocker". (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker)

4.2 Our website uses so-called Social Plugins ("plugins") operated by the social and microblogging network Twitter: Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St., Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.These plugins are marked with a Twitter logo, e.g. in the form of a blue "Twitter bird". You can learn more about Twitter plugins and how they look on the following homepage: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons

If you call up a page on our website which contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The plugin content is transferred by Twitter directly to your browser and integrated into the page you are viewing. By means of this connection Twitter receives the information that you have called up this particular page on our website, even if you are not a registered Twitter user, or are not logged on to Twitter at that moment. This information (including your IP-address) is transferred from your browser directly to a Twitter server in the US and is stored there.

If you are logged on to Twitter, your visit to our website can be assigned by Twitter directly to your Twitter profile. If you interact with the plugins e.g. by using the "Tweet" function, this information will also be transferred to the Twitter servers and stored. This information will also be shown on your Twitter account and will be visible to your contacts.

For further information about your rights, about the purpose and extent of this data collection as well as further processing and use of this data by Twitter, also about the configuration of protection and privacy options in your settings menu, please consult Twitter´s Data Protection information at the following address: https://twitter.com/privacy

If you do not wish Twitter to assign the information gathered by visiting our website to your Twitter profile, you must log out of Twitter before visiting our website. Furthermore, you can completely block Twitter plugins by using add-ons for your browser e.g. with the script blocker "NoScript". (http://noscript.net/).

5) Web Analysis Service

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "Cookies", small text files which are stored on your computer to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by cookies through your use of the website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

In the case of activation of IP-address anonymisation, your IP-address will be shortened by Google within a member state of the European Union or in other Contracting States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP-address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, and then shortened there. On behalf of the website operators, Google uses the information gathered on this website to evaluate your use of the website, to put together reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with further services related to the usage of the website and internet. The IP-address transmitted from your browser to Google Analytics does not come into contact with any other Google information service. You can prevent cookies being stored in your browser settings; please be aware however, that you may not be able to use all available functions on this website if you do block cookies. Additionally, you can prevent information gathered by cookies and also about your website use (including your IP-address) being passed onto or being used by Google by downloading and installing a browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

As an alternative to browser plugins or when using browsers on mobile devices, click the following link to activate an Opt-Out-Cookie which prevents future data collection by Google Analytics within this website. (This Opt-Out-Cookie only functions for one particular browser and one particular domain, if you delete cookies in this browser you have to click the link again.)

De-Activate Google Analytics

We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with an Google Analytics deaktivieren code; IP-addresses will therefore only be processed in a shortened form to prevent persons from being identified.
