The service provider may only use the data to fulfil the task assigned to it.
For the processing of orders in our online shop, we need your name, address, and payment data. We use your e-mail address to confirm receipt of the order and to inform you about the status of the order.

Access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time you visit a website, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access.
This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which are outweighed in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to the site.

Hosting services by a third-party provider
As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides hosting and website display services for us. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which are outweighed by a balancing of interests. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained here.
Data collection and use for contract processing and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us in the context of your order or when contacting us (e.g., via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, as we need the data in these cases to process the contract or to process your contact and you cannot send the order or contact without providing it. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process the contract and your enquiries.
Passing on of data
We will only pass on your data to third parties if:
- and insofar as this is necessary for the implementation of the contractual relationship existing with you or for the enforcement of our claims and rights,
- it is a request from official bodies, in particular law enforcement and supervisory authorities, and the disclosure is necessary to avert dangers to public safety and order and to prosecute criminal offences, and/or
- we are otherwise legally obliged to do so.
Data transfer for the purpose of contract fulfilment
Data transfer to shipping service providers
Transmission of data on outstanding debts to collection service providers
If you fail to pay outstanding invoices despite repeated reminders, we may transfer the data required to carry out a debt collection to a debt collection service provider for the purpose of trustee collection. Alternatively, we can sell the outstanding receivables to a collection service provider. This service provider then becomes the holder of the claim and asserts the claims in its own name.
E-mail advertising with registration for the newsletter
If you register for our newsletter, we use the data required for this purpose or separately provided by you to regularly send you our e-mail newsletter based on your consent. For this purpose, we use the double opt-in procedure to prevent fraud or misuse of your e-mail address. Registration is voluntary. The only mandatory data for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The legal basis is your consent.
Unsubscribing from the newsletter is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter. With your unsubscription, all associated newsletter registration data will be deleted immediately.

The dispatch service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i.e., without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services.
The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. This also enables revocation of consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.
The legal basis for the processing of the data after the user has registered for the newsletter is the user’s consent. The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is our legitimate interest.
Legal defense and enforcement of our rights
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in the context of legal defense and enforcement of our rights is our legitimate interest.

This serves to protect our legitimate interests in our protection against fraud or in efficient payment management, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests.
Encrypted payment transactions
If there is an obligation to transmit your payment data to us (e.g., account number in the case of direct debit authorization) after the conclusion of a fee-based contract, this data is required for payment processing.
