1.1 What are personal data
Personal data is information that reveals or can reveal the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. As far as possible, we refrain from collecting personal data.
1.2 Handling of personal data
Personal data is used exclusively for the purpose of establishing the contract, defining its content, implementing or processing the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I p. 1 b GDPR).
Beyond that, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent (Art. 6 I p. 1 a GDPR) or if the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests and insofar the weighing of interests shows that there are no overriding interests, basic rights or fundamental freedoms on your part that conflict with this (Art. 6 I p. 1 f GDPR).
We may use contract processors to process your personal data, but will not pass on your personal data to third parties. Only for the fulfillment of the contract, the data will be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. For the processing of payments, the payment data required for this will be passed on to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the commissioned and selected payment service provider.
Your personal data will be processed exclusively within the EU unless otherwise stated below.

- the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete it and instead request the restriction of use
- we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
- you have lodged an objection to the processing of your data and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

5. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google and operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"), and collects and stores data via this web analytics service from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. The user profiles created in this way are used to evaluate visitor behavior in order to design and improve the services presented on this website in line with requirements. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are small text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. The user profiles maintained under a pseudonym are also not merged with the personal data of the user without the express and separately declared consent of the user. Thus, the weighing of interests shows that there are no overriding interests on your part that conflict with this (Art. 6 I p. 1 f GDPR). You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
