Data Privacy

We appreciate your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Hereinafter we will provide you with detailed information on the handling of your data.

 

Collection, processing and use of personal data

 

You can visit our website without giving any personal data. We only store - even if the visit takes place via newsletter links - access data without personal data such as, for example:

- the name of your internet service provider

- the site from which you visited us

- the name of the requested file

This data will only be used for the improvement of our offers and ensures that no one will be able to determine your identity.

We collect, store and process your data for the order processing of your purchase and potential subsequent warranty processing. Personal data will be collected if you voluntarily notify us as part of your order or when opening a customer account.

Your personal data will be passed on to service providers (transporters, logisticians, banks) employed by us when carrying out the order.

 

Access right

 

According to the Federal Data Protection Act, you have a right to attain information about your stored data free of charge, as well as a right to rectification, blocking or deletion of this data.

 

The use of cookies

 

We use “cookies” on our website. Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and store certain settings and data for the communication with our system via your browser. This storage helps us to appropriately design the web page for you and makes it easier for you to use, for example, by storing specific entries so that you do not have to continuously repeat them. Your browser allows you to restrict the settings for the use of cookies, which can subsequently lead to our offer no longer working for you, or only working to a limited extent. Cookies can also be deleted there.

 

Session cookies

 

Session cookies (also known as transient cookies) are deleted after closing your browser.

 

Persistent cookies

 

Our website uses cookies, which remain on the hard drive of your computer. For your convenience, the expiration time is set to a date in the future. When you visit our website again, it will be automatically detected that you have already visited us and which entries and settings you prefer (so-called long-term cookies).

 

The use of Facebook Social Plugins

 

We use “social plugins” ("plugins") from the social network Facebook on our website, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or an additional "Social plug-in from Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin". You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins

 

When you visit a page on our website which contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly to the Facebook server. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the webpage. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is sent directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

 

If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can directly collate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, press the "Like" button or make a comment, this information is also sent directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also posted on your Facebook profile and can be seen by your Facebook friends.

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights and settings for the protection of your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy:

http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

 

If you do not want Facebook to collate the data collected through our website directly with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent loading the Facebook plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the "Facebook blocker":

The plugins are marked with a Twitter logo, for example, in the form of a blue "Twitter bird". You can find an overview of the Twitter plugins and their appearance here:

Through this integration, Twitter receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Twitter account or are not logged into Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is sent directly from your browser to a Twitter server in the USA and stored there.
