The operator of this website treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the data protection legislation and this Privacy Notice. By visiting this website, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
To protect the security of your information during transmission, each transmitted information is encrypted by SSL software. An encrypted connection is displayed in modern browsers in the address bar beginning with "https://" and a lock symbol. Hence, your transmitted data remains confidential and can't be read along by third parties.
Please note that security gaps may occur during data transfer in the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail). Complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties is not possible.
These web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. They do not cause harm on your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make the offer more user-friendly, effective and safer.
Most of the used cookies are so-called session cookies. These save e.g. the progress during the check-out. They are automatically deleted after your visit.
Other cookies remain stored on your device until they are no longer valid or you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. This way, e.g. your login credentials, your language settings or the content of the shopping cart can be saved. Cookies are used for usage analysis, too (see next topic "Matomo").
You can set your browser so that you
- exclude the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or in general, and
- enable the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser.
Please note: upon deactivation of cookies, the functionality of this site will be limited.

For this purpose the information generated about your use of this website is stored on the server. Your IP address is anonymised before storage. The generated information about the usage of this website will not be passed on to third parties.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser transmits automatically. These are:
- browser type/browser version
- used operating system
- referrer URL
- host name of accessing computer
- time of server request
This data cannot be assigned to specific individuals. A compilation of this data with other data sources will not be made. I reserve the right to examine this data retrospectively when I get to know concrete evidence of unlawful use.
Collection and use of personal information
When you send me a request (e.g. via contact form, e-mail or telephone), your data will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the case of follow-up questions.
During the order process, private data of you will be requested and stored (name, adress and contact details, and, if applicable, company and VAT-ID). This customer data is stored and used for the order and shipping process. Therefore, required data will be transmitted to PayPal, if you choose that payment method, and to shipping service providers (including your e-mail address, if delivery announcement by carrier is available).
Purchased products are sometimes combined with similar information from other customers and displayed in a non-personally identifiable form in features such as buy recommendations.
You can order in the shop without creating an account. The so-called guest account will be deleted automatically after a successful order or if you log off. The guest account will remain, if the check-out will be interrupted e.g. by closing the browser window. I delete those guest accounts manually usually within 48 hours.
If you create a customer account, your personal information will be used additionally for the following:
- for your identification and authentication,
- so that you can track the processing progress of your order in your account,
- your order history,
- to recommend products that might interest you, and
- for the evaluation system.
Please note that your “likes” and comments on any social media page can usually be seen publicly, not only by the site administrators.
Information, suspension or deletion of personal data
You always have the right for free information about your stored personal data, its origin and destination and the purpose of the data processing and the right to correction, suspension or deletion of this data with future effect.
Registered customers may delete their customer account and the therin saved data at "Your account", too.
