Data security

Your personal details and data will be transmitted via the internet in an encrypted state during the order process. We secure our website and other systems through technical and organisational methods against loss, destruction, access, alteration and dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. You should treat your access information as confidential at all times and close your browser window when you have finished communicating with us, particularly if you use the computer jointly with other people.

Collection, processing and use of your personal details and data

You can visit our site without providing any personal information. We only store access data – even if your visit comes via newsletter links – without any personal reference, e.g.:

  • the name of your internet service provider
  • the site from which you visit us
  • the name of the file requested.

These data are evaluated solely in order to improve our service and allow no conclusions to be drawn about you personally.

We collect, store and process your data to deal with your purchase order and to handle any later guarantee transactions, and for advertising purposes. Personal details and data will be collected if you voluntarily notify us of them when ordering your goods, or when opening a customer account, or when registering for the Newsletter.

In executing your order, we shall pass on your personal details and data to service providers in our employ (carriers, providers of logistics and payment services).

Right to information and correction

Under the German Data Protection Act you have a right to information free of charge about your data in storage, and if necessary a right to correction, blockage or deletion of these data.

Use of cookies

We employ so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small electronic files which are saved on your data carrier and store the particular settings and data for exchange of information with our system via your browser. This storage helps us to design the website with your needs in mind and makes it easier to use by, for example, saving particular inputs which you have already made so that you do not have to keep repeating them. Your browser enables you to restrict the use of cookies by making certain adjustments, but such adjustments may mean that our site no longer functions for you, or is restricted in its functioning. Cookies can also be deleted there.

Session cookies

Session cookies are deleted once you have closed your browser.

Long-time cookies

We use cookies which stay on your hard disk. For your convenience, their expiry date is set to a date in the future. If you make a further visit, it is possible to recognise immediately that you have already been with us and which inputs and settings you prefer.

Google Analytics with the "anonymise IP" extension

This website uses Google Analytics for web analysis. This is a service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses cookies to trace your visit, and to get information about the use of this website, including your anonymised IP address, will be transmitted to a server operated by Google in the USA, and stored there. Google complies with the data-protection provisions of the US Safe Harbour Convention and is registered with the Safe Harbour Programme of the US Department of Commerce. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to assemble reports for us about activity on the website, and to supply us with further services associated with use of the website and use of the internet.
