Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process, and use personal data only insofar as it is necessary to establish, or modify legal relationships with us (master data). This is done based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

4. Analytics and advertising
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en .
Objecting to the collection of data
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An Opt-Out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Google Analytics is inactive . Opt-Out works only for this website and only for the browser you are using for the Opt-Out. Important: If you delete your cookies in this browser, you will have to opt-out again (click on the link above again).
We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic data collection by Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics’ demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section “Refusal of data collection”.
User- and event-level information stored by Google that is associated with cookies, user IDs (e.g., UserID), or advertising IDs (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android Advertising ID) is collected, after 26 months it is anonymized or deleted. Details can be found under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en .
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. This service is provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on our website (such as on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its site from abusive automated crawling and spam.
Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and DoubleClick. This service is provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
This feature makes it possible to link target audiences for promotional marketing created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This allows advertising to be displayed based on your personal interests, identified based on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one device (e.g. your mobile phone), on other devices (such as a tablet or computer).
Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google Account for this purpose. That way, any device that signs into your Google Account can use the same personalized promotional messaging.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated?hl=en .
The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account data is based solely on your consent, which you may give or withdraw from Google per Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. For data collection operations not merged into your Google Account (for example, because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merge), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing anonymous user behaviour for promotional purposes.
Microsoft Advertising Program
Our online shop also uses the online advertising program “Bing Ads” and the associated conversion tracking, a service of Microsoft (Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA, “Microsoft”). When you click on an ad from Microsoft Bing Ads, a cookie is set on your device, which is used for conversion tracking. If you visit a website of our online store and the conversion tracking cookie is still valid, then Microsoft Bing Ads and we can determine that you clicked on the ad placed with Bing Ads and were redirected to the page. We use the information collected with the conversion tracking cookie to compile statistics on the use of Microsoft Bing Ads. Among other things, we learn the total number of users who clicked on an ad placed by us at Microsoft Bing Ads and thus reached a website of our online shop.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can object to our use of this analysis service by preventing the storage of cookies on your device by setting your browser accordingly (e.g. by generally blocking the acceptance of cookies). Your usage will then not be recorded in our conversion tracking statistics. You can also prevent the use of the analysis service by clicking the following link: https://account.microsoft.com/privacy/ad-settings/ to declare your objection. Further information can be found at: https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-ca/privacystatement.
Our website uses the visitor action pixel of Facebook Pixel to track traffic, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) to measure conversion.
This allows us to track the behaviour of site visitors after they are redirected to the provider’s Web site by clicking on a Facebook ad. Which allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising to be optimized.
The data collected is anonymous to us as the operator of this website and we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines. This may allow Facebook to serve advertisements on Facebook pages and outside Facebook. This use of data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.
Please see Facebook’s Privacy Notice for more information about protecting your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .
You can also disable the remarketing feature “Custom Audiences” in the Advertisement Settings section of https://www.facebook.com/ds/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen . You must be logged in to Facebook to do this.
Even if you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable Facebook’s usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: https://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices .

You can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. To object, it is sufficient, for example, to send an Email to email@example.com or click on the unsubscribe link contained in our Emails. If you file an objection, the Email address concerned will be blocked immediately for further advertising data processing.

ActiveCampaign / Klaviyo
This website uses the services of ActiveCampaign and Klaviyo for sending newsletters and information e-mails. The providers are ActiveCampaign LLC, 1 N Dearborn St., 5th Floor, Chicago, Illinois 60602 USA (“ActiveCampaign”) and Klaviyo Inc., 125 Summer St, Floor 6 Boston, MA 02111 United States (“Klaviyo”).

The data required for this (e.g. your order data or your e-mail address) is transmitted to ActiveCampaign or Klaviyo and stored on their US servers.
We have concluded an order data processing agreement with ActiveCampaign and Klaviyo. This also includes the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission for the lawful transfer of data between EU and non-EU countries.

Our emails sent with ActiveCampaign or Klaviyo allow us to analyse the behaviour of email recipients. Among other things, we can analyse how many recipients have opened the email and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be determined whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product, sharing of information on social media, unsubscribes) has taken place after clicking on the links in the email. This information cannot be assigned to the respective email recipient. This is to analyse campaigns of newsletters or information emails. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters or information emails to the interests of the recipients.
If you do not want any analysis by ActiveCampaign or Klaviyo, you must unsubscribe from the email newsletter or our information emails. You can do this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.

In the event of an objection to the use of your e-mail address for information e-mails, we will no longer use it for direct marketing purposes. You can also revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. In this case, we will delete the data you have provided to us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes will remain unaffected by this. The legality of the data processing procedures already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
For more details, please refer to the data protection provisions of (i) ActiveCampaign under: https://www.activecampaign.com/privacy-policy and (ii) of Klaviyo under https://www.klaviyo.com/legal/privacy-notice.
We have entered into a contract with ActiveCampaign for the processing of orders, obliging ActiveCampaign to protect our customers’ information and not to disclose it to third parties.
