6. SSL encryption
This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and so as to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by looking at the address line of the browser and noticing the change from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
7. Collection and storage of personal data as well as its type and purpose of use
a) When you visit the website
When you visit our website, the browser on your device automatically sends information to the server on our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your assistance and stored until its automatic deletion:
- IP address of the requesting computer

The legal basis for data processing is Section 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest for data collection follows from the purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data to draw conclusions about you personally.
b) Contractual relationship
aa) Conclusion of contract
Within the framework of establishing the contractual relationship, only the personal data that is essential for executing the contract is processed in accordance with Section 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR.
If you provide any additional information voluntarily, it will only be processed with your consent in accordance with Section 6 Par. P. 1 lit a GDPR . We use this voluntary information to offer a customer-friendly service and to constantly improve it.

dd) Disclosure of data when using online payment service providers
If, within the framework of your order process, you decide to pay with one of our online payment service providers, your contact data will be transmitted to them within the context of the order triggered in this way.

P. 1 lit. f GDPR to enable a user-friendly and uncomplicated payment processing.
The personal data transmitted to the online payment service provider is usually first name, last name, address, telephone number, IP address, e-mail address, or other data required for order processing, as well as data related to the order, such as number of articles, article number, invoice amount and taxes in percent, invoice information, etc. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

Newsletter content and registration data
We will only send you a newsletter when you order it from us and provide your consent pursuant to Section 6 Par. p. 1 lit. a GDPR. The contents of the newsletter are described in detail when registering for the newsletter. All you need to register for the newsletter is your e-mail address. When you provide further voluntary information, such as your name and/or gender, this will be used exclusively for the personalisation of the newsletter addressed to you.
Double opt-in and logging
For security reasons, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure to subscribe to our newsletter so that no one can register with other e-mail addresses. After subscribing to our newsletter, you will therefore receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription. This only becomes effective with registration confirmation.
Furthermore, your registration for the newsletter will be logged. The logging includes storage of the time of registration and confirmation, your provided data as well as your IP address. When you make changes to your data, these changes are also logged.
When you no longer wish to receive our newsletter, you can revoke your consent at any time for the future. To do so, you can click on the link to unsubscribe from the newsletter at the end of each newsletter, or you can send us an e-mail to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
Use of "MailChimp"
We send our newsletter with the help of the newsletter service "MailChimp", which is offered by the Rocket Science Group, LLC (675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA).
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients and also their further data described in the context of these notification are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp can use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimise the sending and presentation of newsletters or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to pass it on to third parties.
You will find the data protection policy of MailChimp here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/
Statistical surveys and analyses
The newsletters sent via MailChimp contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, the following technical information is initially collected:
- Information regarding the browser
- Information regarding your system
- Your IP address
- Date and time of retrieval
This information is used to improve the services based on the technical data, the target groups and their reading behaviour, the retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) and the access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether and when the newsletters are opened and which links are clicked in the newsletter. This information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons, but it is neither our endeavour, nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations serves to recognise our users' reading habits and to adapt our contents accordingly or to send different contents, depending on our users' interests.
The use of the MailChimp newsletter service, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses, and the logging of the registration procedure are based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Section 6 Par. S. 1 lit. f GDPR. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and satisfies our users' expectations.
Use of rapidmail
We use rapidmail (rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg i.Br. Germany), to send our newsletter. Your data will therefore be transmitted to rapidmail GmbH. It is forbidden for rapidmail GmbH to use your data for other purposes than for sending the newsletter. rapidmail GmbH is not permitted to pass on or sell your data. rapidmail is a certified German newsletter software provider that was carefully selected in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act.
We have concluded an order processing contract with rapidmail.
Further information on data protection at rapidmail can be found here: https://www.rapidmail.de/datenschutzbestimmungen
The use of the dispatch service provider rapidmail GmbH is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Section 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and satisfies our users' expectations.
d) Contact form / e-mail contact
We provide you with a form on our website so that you can contact us at any time. For using the contact form, a name for a personal form of address and a valid e-mail address is required to make contact, so that we know from whom the enquiry originates and can process it.
When you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you have provided there and your IP address in accordance with Section 6 Par. S. 1 lit. b and f GDPR will be used for executing pre-contractual measures that take place on your request or are processed for the exercise of our legitimate interest, namely for exercising our business activity.

The requests and the associated data will be deleted no later than 3 months after receipt, unless they are required for a further contractual relationship.
e) Google Fonts
We use Google Fonts on our website. This enables the display of fonts. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043). These web fonts are integrated by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This may result in the following being transmitted to the server and stored by Google:
- Name and version of the browser used
- Website from which access was triggered (referrer URL)
- Operating systems of your computer
- Screen display resolution of your computer
- IP address of requesting computer
- Language settings of the browser and/or the operating system used by the user
The use of Google Fonts is intended to simplify reading our website and making it graphically more pleasant for you, and it is therefore based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Section 6 Par. S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
f) Use of Google Maps
Our website uses the Google Maps API. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to the USA and stored there by Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043).
If this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google, Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties. However, under no circumstances will your IP address be linked to other data from Google. However, we must point out that it is technically possible for Google to identify individual users on the basis of the data received.
The data processed by cookies is required for the above-mentioned purposes, so as to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Section 6, Par. S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies due to the browser settings. However, you can configure your browser in such a manner that either no cookies are stored on your end device or, at least, a message is displayed before a new cookie is stored. If you completely deactivate the cookie function in your browser, you may not be able to use all functions of our website.
Below we explain the different types of cookies we use.
a) Session cookies
In order to make your use of our website more pleasant, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website.
These session cookies are automatically deleted after leaving our site.
b) Temporary cookies
These temporary cookies are stored on your terminal for a specified period of time.
c) Cookies for optimisation purposes
These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.
9. Analyse and tracking tools
We use the analysis and tracking tools listed below on our website. These serve to ensure the continuous optimisation of our website and to design it according to requirements.
These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of Section 6 Par. S. 1 lit. f GDPR . The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tools.
a) Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics on our website, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as "Google").
- Name and version of the browser used
- Operating systems of your computer
- Website from which access is made (referrer URL)
- IP address of the requesting computer
- Date and time of the server enquiry
are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, because we have activated IP anonymisation on our website, your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to our website: deactivate Google Analytics
b) Google Remarketing
We use the remarketing function of Google Analytics to direct advertising campaigns - including Google AdWords campaigns - to visitors to our website.
Based on your previous visits to our website, relevant advertisements are presented to you when you visit other websites in the Google Display Network.
The DoubleClick cookie allows Google to target advertisements to us and other third parties that match the interests identified as a result of your previous visits to our website and/or other websites. This advertising may be displayed on websites operated by Google and/or other Google network operators. We also use the Google Analytics advertising functions to analyse the effectiveness of our own advertising campaigns.
You can personalise your Google ad settings and object to Google's interest-based ads. In this case, the cookie ID (assigned individually for each cookie) of the DoubleClick cookie is overwritten and can no longer be associated with a specific browser.
If you delete all cookies from your device, a new DoubleClick cookie may be placed. Then you may have to renew your objection settings. You can permanently disable the DoubleClick cookie by clicking here: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin download and install the appropriate browser plugin. You may disable the use of third-party cookies for the purpose of online advertising on the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ .
If you've agreed in your Google Account that your Google web and app browsing history will be linked to your Google Account and information from your Google Account will be used to personalise ads, Google will use information from you along with Google Analytics data to create cross-device remarketing targeting lists. To do this, Google Analytics first collects Google authenticated IDs linked to your Google Account for you as a user on our website. Google Analytics then temporarily links these IDs to Google Analytics data in order to optimise our target groups.
c) Google AdWords
We use Google AdWords on our website, which is an online advertising programme of Google Inc, which also uses conversion tracking. With this tool, Google AdWords sets a cookie on your device when you visit our website via a Google ad.
After 30 days, the cookie is no longer valid. It is not used for any form of personal traceability. If you visit our website as a user, and the cookie is still working, we can see together with Google that you have clicked on the corresponding advertisement and have been redirected to our page. Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies are therefore not traceable via the AdWords customers' websites.
The data collected through conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers. As Google AdWords customers, we gain information on the total number of users who responded to our ad and were then directed to a website that was tagged with a conversion tracking tag. We do not receive any information during this process with which we could personally identify you as a user.
If you choose not to allow the tracking process, you can disable the Google Conversion Tracking cookie from your Internet browser.
10. Video integration
Our website uses the plugin YouTube, which is used by YouTube, LLC (901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA).
If you activate the YouTube plugin during your visit, a connection to YouTube's servers is established and the YouTube server is informed regarding which of our pages you have visited. Thus, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this when you log out of your member account before visiting our website.
The legal basis is provided for in Section 6 Par. S. 1 lit. f GDPR. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR.
