Data storage

We use the data you provide to fulfil and process your order. Your data will be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods. For the processing of payments we pass on your payment data to our bank. Your data will not be passed on to other third parties or used for advertising purposes. Once the contract has been fully processed and the purchase price has been paid in full, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after the statutory retention periods have expired. We secure our website and other systems by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. Despite regular checks, complete protection against all dangers is not possible. According to the Federal Data Protection Act (FADP), you have a right to free information about your stored data (Art. 8 FADP) as well as a right to rectification (Art. 5 para. 2 FADP). Requests for information can also be sent to the responsible office in electronic form.

Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your order for goods, when opening a customer account or when registering for our newsletter. We use the data you provide without your separate consent exclusively for the fulfilment and processing of your order. Once the contract has been fully processed and the purchase price has been paid in full, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the statutory retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data. If you register for the newsletter, your e-mail address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Credit checks and scoring

If we make advance payments, e.g. in the case of a purchase on account, we may obtain creditworthiness information from a credit agency on the basis of mathematical-statistical methods in order to protect our legitimate interests. For this purpose, we transmit the personal data required for a credit check to a credit agency and use the information received about the statistical probability of a payment default for a weighed decision about the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship. The creditworthiness information may include probability values (score values) which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical methods and which include address data in their calculation. Your interests worthy of protection are taken into account in accordance with the legal provisions. Upon request, we will gladly inform you which credit agencies we use for this purpose.

Facebook Social Plugins

Our website uses so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social network Facebook, 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 the addition "Social Plug-in from Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin". An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here:
When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or posting a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Facebook's privacy policy:
If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of Facebook plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the "Facebook Blocker" (

We reserve the right to change and expand the data protection information.
