What types of personal data do we collect?
Examples of personal data we collect include general personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, etc.).
If you purchase goods or services via our website, additional personal data may be collected, namely customer data (orders, delivery address, customer account, etc.).
Finally, we collect certain information via our website in so-called server log files, which your internet browser automatically transmits to us. These include the user agent (browser type and version, operating system used), http header information (URL, IP address of the accessing computer), the time of the server request and the login status. These server log files are only merged with other data sources for error analysis.
When do we collect your personal data?
We collect your personal data when you provide it to us. This can be, for example, personal data that you enter in a contact form or general personal data that you provide as part of a registration process on our website.
Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit our website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view) as well as data about the pages, products and services on our website that you view. This data is collected automatically as soon as you visit our website. The data collected also includes personal data that can be used to identify you personally, such as your IP address.
For what purpose do we collect and process your personal data?
Certain personal data is collected in order to ensure the error-free provision of our website.
Other personal data is used to analyse your user behaviour. Such analyses serve to optimise our website, but also to automatically display offers that may be of interest to you. In connection with your orders, we require your personal and purchasing data for the processing of your purchase and any subsequent warranties as well as for our services, technical administration and use them for advertising and marketing purposes.
As a matter of principle, we collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that it is necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the legal relationship.
Personal data collected through the use of our website (e.g. usage data; purchase history; purchase information such as purchase date, type, quantity and value of the purchased goods and services, shopping basket contents, means of payment used) are only collected, processed and used if you have consented to data processing as part of the registration process on our website. With the help of data processing, we can, among other things, better adapt the content of our website to your needs and preferences, improve product search functions for you or show you advertising or offers that may be of interest to you. The personal data collected will be deleted if you withdraw your consent; legal retention periods remain unaffected.
If you have not registered on our website, we collect, process and use data on the use of our website only in anonymised form. In this case, the aforementioned functions are severely restricted, i.e. the possible adaptations of the website, the search functions or the advertisements and offers displayed are not as well adapted to your needs and interests.
Registration on our website
You can register on our website in order to use additional functions. The mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full; otherwise we will refuse registration. We use the personal data collected only for the purpose of using the particular offer or service for which you have registered. In addition, we use your e-mail address to inform you of important changes, for example in the scope of the offer, or in the event of technically necessary changes.
Use of the contact form
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
On what legal basis do we collect and process your personal data?
The legal basis for the collection and processing of your personal data depends on the purpose of the data processing in each individual case. The following are possible
- the protection of our legitimate interests, provided that your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms are not unreasonably affected;
- the conclusion or performance of a contract; or
- Your consent at the time your personal data is collected. You can withdraw your consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
To whom do we pass on your personal data?
Our employees have access to your personal data to the extent that such access is necessary for the purposes described and for the work of the employee concerned. They act in accordance with our instructions and are bound to confidentiality and secrecy when handling your personal data. In addition, we may share your personal data with external service providers who carry out certain business processes on our behalf ("processors"), such as in particular: - IT services, such as data storage, cloud services, data analytics, etc.
