3. The acquisition of data on our website

Cookies
Some of the web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do no damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and by your internet browser.

Most of the cookies that we use are so-called "session cookies". These are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser again when you visit next.

You can set your browser such that you are informed when cookies are set, cookies are only permitted in individual cases, cookies are only accepted for certain cases or generally excluded, and you can also set the browser to automatically delete the cookies when the browser is closed. The deactivation of cookies can limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are required for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of article 6, section 1, letter f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically faultless and optimised provision of their services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your browsing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.

Server log files
The provider of the web pages automatically collects and saves information that your browser automatically sends to us in server log files. This information is:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of accessing computer
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

This data is not associated with data from other data sources.

The basis for the data processing is article 6, section 1, letter b GDPR, which permits the processing of data in order to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form
If you wish to contact us with questions via the contact form, your information from the contact form - including the contact details that you provide there - will be saved by us for the purpose of dealing with your inquiry and for any subsequent queries. We will not pass this data on to others without your permission.

The processing of data entered in the contact form therefore takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (article 6, section 1, letter a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. Notifying us informally by email is sufficient for this. The legality of any data processing procedures that took place prior to consent being revoked remains unaffected.

The data entered in the contact form by you is kept by us until you demand that it be deleted, or you withdraw your consent to its storage, or the purpose of the data storage no longer applies (e.g. once your inquiry has been fully processed). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular storage periods - remain unaffected.

Contact
In the event of contacting the provider (for example by email), the user’s information will be saved for the purpose of processing the enquiry, and for any follow-up queries.

The mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise we will reject your registration.

In the event of important changes to our range for example, or with important technical changes, we use the email address provided with your registration to keep you informed.

The processing of data provided during registration therefore takes place on the basis of your consent (article 6, section 1, letter a GDPR). After providing consent, you can withdraw this at any time. Notifying us informally by email is sufficient for this. The legality of any data processing that took place prior to this remains unaffected.
