Collection, processing and use of personal data:
You can visit our site with and without providing information on yourself. We shall only store access data without reference to the person, such as the name of your internet service provider, the site from which you accessed your site, or the name of the requested file. These data shall be evaluated exclusively for the improvement of our offers, and do not enable us to draw conclusions with regard to yourself. Personal data will only be collected if they are voluntarily provided to us by yourself within the framework of your order of goods, when opening a customer account or when registering for our newsletter. We shall only use the provided date for the fulfillment and handling of your order, unless you provide us with a special approval. At the time of complete processing of the contract and complete payment of the purchase price, your data will be locked from any further use, and will be deleted after the end of the period of time required by provisions of tax and commercial law, unless you expressly agree to the further use of your data. When registering for the newsletter, your name and your e-mail address will be used for our own advertising purposes with your approval, until you unsubscribe the newsletter. All customer details are saved and processed in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and Teleservices Data Protection Act.
Forwarding of personal data, credit assessment:
We never disclose your personal information, including home and e-mail address, to third parties without your express permission which you may withdraw at any time. This does not apply to our service partners (including the carriers making the deliveries, credit agencies and financial institutions processing the payments) who require the transferred information in order to process the order. In these instances however, we only transfer the data required. The data will not be forwarded to any other third parties.
Use of Internet Browser Cookies:
In order to be able to place orders in our online shop, a so-called session cookie will be placed when certain pages are retrieved. These are small text files which will be deleted from your computer automatically after the browser session. These files exclusively serve to be able to use certain applications, for instance our shopping basket system.
Allowance for e-mail advertising:
During opening your customer account you can subscribe to our newsletter. In this case you declare to agree with the periodic sending of interesting offers via e-mail. Your e-mail address will not be passed down to other companies. This agreement for utilization of your e-mail address for announcement can be revoked at any time with future effect by replay with “sign off” in subject line.
We have a number of technical and organizational safeguards in place to protect the personal information you supply to us from incidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction and unauthorized access. Payments are processed using 256-bit encryption SSL.
