Privacy & Data Protection
Thank you for visiting our online shop. Protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find extensive information about how we handle your data.
1. Access data and hosting
You may visit our website without revealing any personal information. With every visit on the website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request.
These access data are analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit on our website.
Third-party hosting services
Data are also processed by a third-party provider that we have engaged to render hosting and website presentation services on our behalf. This provider processes on its servers all data that are collected in the manner specified below when you visit our website or fill in forms made available for this purpose in our online shop. Data are processed on other servers only in the scope described herein.
This service provider is based in an EU or EEA member state.
2. Data collection and use for processing the contract and for opening a customer account
We collect personal data that you voluntarily submit to us when you place an order, contact us (e.g. via contact form or by email) or open a customer account with us. Mandatory fields are marked as such because we absolutely need those data to perform the contract or process your contact request or open your customer account, and you would otherwise not be able to complete your order and/or create your customer account or send the contact request. It is evident in each input form what data are collected. We use the data that you disclose to us to perform the contract and process your enquiries. Upon completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, any further processing of your data will be restricted, and your data will be deleted upon expiry of the retention period applicable under relevant regulations, unless you expressly consent to the further use of your data or we reserve the right to further use your personal data in the scope and manner permitted by law, of which we inform you in this notice. Your customer account can be deleted at any time. For this purpose you can either send a message to the contact option specified below or use the relevant function available in the customer account.
3. Transfer of data
For the purpose of contract performance, we disclose your data to the shipping company in the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods. Depending on the payment service provider you have selected during the ordering process, we disclose the payment details collected for order processing purposes to the bank commissioned to handle the payment and, as the case may be, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. Some of those data are collected by the selected payment service providers themselves if you open an account with them. In such a case, during the order ing process, you must register with your payment service provider using your access data. In this respect, the privacy notice of the relevant payment service provider applies.

Using of social network plugins of Facebook, Instagram
Our website uses so-called social network plugins (“plugins”).
If you call a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct link to the servers of Facebook, Google, Twitter or Instagram. Then, the content of the plugin will be transferred by the relevant provider directly to your browser and integrated within the page you are viewing. This allows the providers to obtain information that you viewed the page of our website in your browser, also if you do not have an account with the relevant provider or are currently not signed in. This information (including your IP address) will be sent from your browser directly to the relevant provider’s server (which may be in the USA) and stored there. If you have signed in to your social network account, the providers will be able to directly attribute your visit to our website to your social network account. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. click the 'Like' or 'Share' button, this information will be also sent directly to the provider’s server and stored there. In addition, the information will be published on the social network page and your contacts will be able to see it.
