Storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our website without revealing any personal details. We only store access data in so-called server log files, which contain, e.g. the name of the requested file, the date and time of the call-up, transferred data volumes and the enquiring provider. This data is evaluated solely for the securing of the problem-free operation of the website and the improvement of our service, and does not allow us to make an inferences with respect to your person.

Data collection and employment for order handling and the opening of a customer account                                                          We collate personal data, when you make this known to us voluntarily in the course of your order (e.g. via a form or e-mail), or upon opening a customer account. The data to be compiled can be seen on the respective input forms. We employ the data that you provide for order handling and the processing of your enquiries. Following the final completion of the order, or the deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked against further utilization and, after the expiry of the statutory fiscal and retail retention periods, will be erased. This occurs unless you have expressly approved the additional use of the data, or we have retained the right to its legally permitted further employment about which we inform you below. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be initiated either by a message to the subsequently listed contact points, or via the function provided for this purpose in the customer account.

Data transfers for contractual performance
In order to fulfil the contract, we will pass on your data to the mail order company commissioned with the delivery, to the extent that this is required for the provision of the ordered goods. In accordance with your choice of payment service provider for the order process, we will transfer the data collated for the completion of payments to the banking institute instructed for this purpose and if necessary, to the payment service provider that we have selected, or the chosen payment service. The selected payment service providers also partially gather this data when you open an account with them. In such a case, during the order process you must register with the payment service provider using your access data and the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider will apply.
