2 General use of the Website

Access data

We collect information about you when you use this Website. We automatically collect information about your usage behavior and your interaction with us and log data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about each time you access our Website (server log files). Access data includes the name and URL of the retrieved file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval (HTTP response code), browser type and version, operating system, referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

We use this log data, without assigning it to you personally or otherwise creating a profile, for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimization of our online offer, but also to anonymously record the number of visitors to our Website (traffic) and the extent and type of use of our Website and services, as well as for billing purposes in order to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information allows us to provide personalized and location-based content and analyze traffic, troubleshoot and fix errors, and improve our services. We reserve the right to examine the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence.

We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision or billing of a service, for example if you use one of our offers. After the cancellation of an order or after receipt of payment, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offense in connection with the use of our Website. We also store the date of your last visit as part of your account (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking on links, etc.).

Email contact

If you contact us (e.g. via the contact form or email), we will save your details for processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We only store and use other personal data if you consent to this or if this is permitted by law without special consent.

Legal basis and storage period

The legal basis for data processing in accordance with the above paragraphs is point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. Our interests in data processing are, in particular, to ensure the operation and security of the Website, to investigate how visitors use the Website, and to simplify the use of the Website.

Unless specifically stated, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill the intended purposes.

Integration of third-party services and content

Our services sometimes include content, services and features from other providers. These include, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. Transmission of the IP address is mandatory in order for this data to be retrieved and displayed in the user's browser. This means that the providers (hereinafter referred to as "Third-Party Providers") are aware of the IP address of the respective user.

Even if we endeavor to only use Third-Party Providers who only need the IP address in order to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP addresses are stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. Insofar as we are aware that IP addresses are being stored, we inform our users accordingly.

Your data processing rights as a data subject

4 Data security

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical capabilities.

Your personal data is transmitted in encrypted form. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) may have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

To secure your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures that we continually adapt to the best available technology.

We also do not guarantee that our service will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.

5 Automated decision-making

We do not carry out automated decision-making on the basis of the personal data collected.

6 Disclosure of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries

We only use your personal data within our company.

If and insofar as we involve third parties in the fulfillment of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to such an extent as is necessary for the corresponding service.

In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("order processing"), we contractually oblige data processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.

Data transfer to bodies or persons outside the EU beyond the cases mentioned in this declaration in point 2.3 does not take place and is not planned.

7 Do not issue warning notices without prior contact!

If any content or the design of this Website or the content of the email traffic (newsletters, offers, etc.), which is processed via one of our above-mentioned domains, infringes third-party rights or statutory provisions or otherwise gives rise to competition law problems in any form, we request, with reference to § 8 para. 4 UWG, an appropriate, sufficiently explanatory and prompt message at no charge.

We guarantee that any passages or parts of this Website and emails that are rightly objected to will be removed within a reasonable period of time or comprehensively adapted to the legal requirements without the need for you to seek legal assistance.

The involvement of a lawyer to issue a warning notice at the service provider's expense does not correspond to the service provider's actual or presumed intention and would therefore constitute a breach of § 13 (5) UWG due to the pursuit of irrelevant objectives as the dominant motive for initiating proceedings, in particular an intention to generate costs as the actual driving force, as well as a breach of the duty to minimize damages.
