Our company treats your personal information with a high level of responsibility, and the data privacy statement below is intended to give you an overview of what happens to your data and the protection we offer you.

Data privacy statement

Subject of the data privacy statement
This statement refers to the data we obtain when you visit our website and informs you how your data is used. Data is not shared with other companies, which means that the data privacy statement is restricted to your visit to our website.

Personal data and use thereof
You need a customer account to make purchases from us. This customer account contains personal data like your name, address or e-mail address. The data is stored in our database for subsequent processing when you log-in.

In addition to this, files we receive from your browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc.) during your visit are automatically saved to our log files. This means that we know your IP address and a cookie is stored on your computer. This cookie guarantees that your order can be processed properly and in particular allows us to save your interests, so that we can offer you products that interest you most, without you having to tell us again, on your next visit.

Data forwarding
The data we receive from you will not be forwarded to third parties. As we ship directly from our premises, there is no reason to forward your personal data.

People are often worried about the cookies stored on their computers when they visit a website. However, all these small files do is store information. They don’t produce viruses, attack the computer or spy on you.

The only reason cookies are used is to save your activities and interests, so that we can work with them when you visit us next. The advantage for you is that you receive offers that match your interests immediately when you visit our website. That is possible because the cookie stores the products you last looked at and alternatives or additions are shown as soon as you open the page.

Processing and deleting data
Of course, you have the right to correct the personal data entered in your customer account at any time - on the contrary, it is extremely important for us, for example if your address changes. You can also use your customer account to subscribe to our newsletter or request regular information on special offers.

You can change these settings at any time.

Data privacy protection
As already mentioned, your data will not be forwarded. In order to guarantee that your data is safe, your customer account is password-protected, preventing third parties from accessing the account and data.

Amendments to this data privacy statement
The website provider reserves the right to amend this data privacy statement. In the event of amendments, you will be informed by e-mail and you will also be informed accordingly as part of your customer account.
