General information about the legal basis for data processing on this website
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing activities are only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING, INCLUDING THE CREATION OF PROFILES IN RELATION TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING.

Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of a breach of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically with your consent or in performance of a contract, supplied to you or to a third party in a commonly used machine-readable format. If you request the data to be transferred directly to another controller, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
Information, erasure and rectification

You can contact us at any time for this purpose and for any other questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal information held by us, we will normally need time to review it. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request that the processing be restricted instead of erased.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may be processed – apart from storage – only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
SSL or TLS Encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.
When SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the information you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
4. Information collected on this website
Our web pages use “cookies”. Cookies are small pieces of data that do not harm your terminal device. They are stored on your terminal either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Persistent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them or your web browser automatically deletes them.
In some cases, cookies from third parties may also be stored on your device when you visit our site (third party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third party (e.g. cookies for processing payment services).
Cookies have different functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website features would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertisements.
Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process, to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. for the shopping basket function) or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) (necessary cookies) are stored in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of necessary cookies for the technically faultless and optimised provision of its services. If consent has been requested for the storage of cookies and comparable identification technologies, the processing will be carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG); the consent can be revoked at any time.

The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores in server log files information that your browser automatically sends to us. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data will not be merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically correct presentation and optimisation of its website – for this purpose the server log files must be collected.
Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, we will store and process your enquiry, including all personal data (name, enquiry), for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry. We will not pass on this information without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, if your inquiry is related to the execution of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO), if this has been requested; consent may be revoked at any time.
The data you send us in the context of contact enquiries will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, until you revoke your consent to storage or until the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). This is without prejudice to any mandatory legal requirements, in particular statutory retention periods.
5. Analytics tools and advertising
This website uses Matomo, an open source web analytics service.
Matomo enables us to collect and analyse data about the use of our website by visitors. Among other things, this enables us to find out which pages were accessed when and from which region. We also collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser and operating system used) and may measure whether our website visitors take certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If consent has been obtained, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal equipment (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent may be revoked at any time.
We use IP anonymisation for analysis with Matomo. In this case, your IP address is truncated before analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you.
We have configured Matomo not to store cookies in your browser.
We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers, so all analytics data remains with us and is not shared.

7. Online marketing and affiliate programmes
Affiliate programmes on this website
We participate in affiliate programmes. In affiliate programmes, advertisements from one company (the advertiser) appear on the websites of other companies in the affiliate network (the publisher). If you click on one of these affiliate advertisements, you will be taken to the advertised offer. If you then make a specific transaction (conversion), the publisher receives a payment. In order to calculate this remuneration, it is necessary for the affiliate network operator to be able to track which advertisement led you to the relevant offer and to carry out the pre-defined transaction. Cookies or similar recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting) are used for this purpose.
The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the correct calculation of its affiliate remuneration. If consent has been obtained, the processing will be carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal equipment (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent may be revoked at any time.
We participate in the following affiliate programmes:
The operator of the affiliate network is AWIN AG, Eichhornstraße 3, 10785 Berlin (hereinafter referred to as “AWIN”).
AWIN and the Publisher are jointly responsible for data processing in connection with the Affiliate Programme. Their joint obligations have been set out in a Joint Data Processing Agreement. In accordance with this agreement, you may contact either data controller with your data protection concerns. The first controller you contact will respond to your request. Each data controller independently maintains data protection information in accordance with Art. 13, 14 and 26 GDPR and takes the necessary measures to protect personal data and comply with the other GDPR provisions in its organisation. The Joint Processing Agreement can be found in AWIN’s General Terms and Conditions at the following link:
