Thank you for your interest in our online presence. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we would like to inform you about data privacy within our company. It goes without saying that we observe the applicable statutory regulations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and other data protection regulations.
You can trust us with your personal data! Digital security systems encrypt the data which is transferred to us. Our websites are protected against damage, destruction or unauthorized access by means of technical measures.
Subject Matter of Data Protection
The subject matter of data protection is personal data.
According to Art. 4 section 1 of the GDPR ‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified
or identifiable natural person. This includes data such as name, postal address, email address, or telephone number but also user data such as your IP address.
Scope of Data Collection and Storage
In general, you are not required to enter personal data in order to use our website. However, we may require your personal data in order to provide our services. This applies to mailing informational material or ordered goods as well as responding to individual queries.
If you commission us to provide a service or mail goods, we will collect and store your personal data only to the extent necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. It may also be necessary to forward your personal data to companies appointed by us to provide the service or process the contract. These are e.g. transport companies or other service providers.
Once the contract has been completed, your data will be blocked and it will be deleted after expiry of deadlines as per tax-related and commercial regulations, unless you have explicitly agreed to further use of the data.
If you have subscribed to our newsletter with your email address, we will also use your email address beyond the execution of the contract for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.

Collecting and Storing Usage Data
Appropriate Use of Data
We observe the principle of data use for a specific purpose and we collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have communicated it to us. Your personal data is not forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent, insofar as this is not necessary for the provision of the service or execution of the contract. Transmission to government institutions and authorities entitled to receive information also only takes place within the scope of legal disclosure requirements or if we are required by a court decision to disclose this information.
