The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para.1 lit.f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes listed above for data collection. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.
b) When using our contact forms
We offer you the opportunity to contact us via forms provided on the website. A contact form, a returns form, a price enquiry form and a product enquiry form are available for this purpose.
When filling out the forms, it is necessary to state your first and last name, a valid e-mail address and your specific enquiry so that we know who sent the enquiry and can answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.
Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO on the basis of your specific enquiry. The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after completion of your request, unless another legitimation basis (e.g. a specific order) authorizes further processing. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In the event of revocation, your data will be deleted immediately.
c) When using the customer account
For each customer who registers accordingly, we set up password-protected direct access to his stored inventory data (customer account). Here you can view data about your completed, open and recently sent orders and manage your data and the newsletter. You undertake to treat the personal access data confidentially and not to make them accessible to any unauthorised third parties. We cannot accept liability for misused passwords, unless we are responsible for the misuse. If you do not log out, you will remain logged in automatically. This feature allows you to use part of our services without having to log in again each time.
This data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 Para.1 lit.b DSGVO
The personal data collected by us within the scope of the customer account will be deleted upon deletion of your customer account or in the event of revocation, unless another basis of legitimation entitles further processing.
d) When using our online shop
We collect, store and process your data for the entire processing of your purchase, including any subsequent warranties, for our services, technical administration and our own marketing purposes. Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or invoicing or if you have given your prior consent. Within the framework of order processing, for example, the service providers we use here (such as transport companies, logistics companies) receive the necessary data for order and order processing. The data passed on in this way may only be used by our service providers for the fulfilment of their tasks.
For your order we need your correct name, address and payment data. We need your e-mail address so that we can confirm receipt of your order and communicate with you. We also use these for your identification (customer login). You will also receive your order and shipping confirmation via your e-mail address.
This data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 Para.1 lit.b DSGVO.
The personal data collected by us in the context of the online shop will be deleted if corresponding deletion or objection claims are asserted or if the data are no longer required to fulfil the purpose pursued with the storage, unless another justification justifies further processing.
If you are redirected to a payment service provider's website (e.g. Paypal) as part of the sales process, the payment service provider processes this data on its own responsibility on the basis of the data protection declaration stated there.
e) Product recommendations by e-mail
As our customer, you will regularly receive product recommendations for similar goods from us by e-mail.

In doing so, we strictly comply with legal requirements.
This data processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para.1 lit.f DSGVO to inform our customers about relevant offers.
If you no longer wish to receive product recommendations or any advertising messages from us, you can object to this at any time.
