Data protection

As a rule, our website can be used without stating personal data. Wherever personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) are collected on our pages, they are stated on a voluntary basis as far as possible. Such data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.

Note that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. as part of email communication) may involve security gaps. It is impossible to provide complete protection of data against third-party access.

We hereby explicitly object to the use by third parties of contact data published as part of the mandatory site notice for purposes of sending unsolicited advertising and information material. The site operators explicitly reserve the right to take legal steps in case unsolicited advertising information is sent, e.g. in the form of spam emails.


Having responsibility under the provisions of data protection law we assure you that, to protect your personal data, our company will always collect, store, modify, transmit, block, delete and use such data in compliance with the applicable provisions of data protection law and other provisions of law


Collection of personal data through our company


As part of the ordering procedure you are requested in the customer data form to state several personal data, which you transmit to us along with the other ordering data by sending your order. Consequently, we collect no other than those personal data which you transmit to us.


Purposes of collection, processing and use of personal data; approvals given


We collect your personal data as part of the ordering procedure and process and use them thereafter for the attainment of our own business purposes within the framework of the contract concluded.

If you open a customer account, personal data are collected, processed and used in order to avoid the repeated entry of personal data in connection with future purchase orders.


If you have consented to receiving our newsletter, your email address is collected, processed and used for our own advertising purposes. In this case you have given your consent as follows:

“I agree to be informed about interesting offers by email and therefore consent to the inclusion of my email address into the newsletter mailing list. This consent may be revoked with future effect at any time and without giving reasons.”


Revocation of consent


Any consent you may have given can be revoked with future effect at any time and without giving reasons. An informal notice to this effect is sufficient.

Transmission of personal data to third parties


We will not transmit your personal data to third parties except to the service partners involved in the performance of the contract, e.g. the logistics enterprise in charge of shipment and the credit institution in charge of payment transactions. However, in cases where your personal data have to be transmitted to third parties, the scope of data transmitted will be limited to the minimum requirements.


Recallability of consents you have given


The details of any consent you may have given can be recalled at any time using this document.


Your rights


You have the right to obtain information free of charge on the personal data stored in respect of you. You are kindly requested to direct enquiries in that respect to the address given in the provider identification. If the data we have stored about you are incorrect you may be assured that they will be corrected upon notification from your side.

Moreover, you may revoke your consent to the storage of personal data about you with future effect at any time and without giving reasons. If you notify us accordingly, we will delete the personal data stored about you unless such data are still needed for the performance of the contract concluded or deletion is prevented by any provision of law. In this case the personal data in question will not be deleted but blocked. 

You are kindly requested to contact the address given in the provider identification with all enquiries relating to data protection law.
