The cookie is required to obtain legally compliant user consent.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your internet browser.
Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the data collection. Personal data includes all information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you - for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online services, we always store access data to this website (without personal reference). This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person. Furthermore, we distinguish between the following types of data collection, whereby the following personal data is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interest in fulfilling our agreed service and optimizing our online offer:
a) Collection of data via contact forms.
If you inquire via our contact forms, we collect the following data:

This data is needed to be able to answer possible inquiries about our services or products in a dutiful manner.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we use the data required for this purpose or separately from your communicated data to regularly send you our e-mail newsletter based on your consent. Unsubscribing from the newsletter is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the described contact option or via a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter. After unsubscribing, we will deactivate your e-mail address.

e) Handling of comments and contributions
If you leave a possible post or comment on this website or our social media profiles, the IP address will be stored. This is done due to our legitimate interests and serves the security of us as a website operator: because if your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted for it, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the comment or post author.
Shopify store software
We use “Shopify” to host our shop system, to present our offers and for the processing of contracts.

Due to our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimization and operation of our online offer (within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO), this website uses the Facebook social plugin, which is operated by Facebook Inc. (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA).

The processing of data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data usage policy: www.econda.de/widerruf-zur-datenspeicherung/. You can find specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works in Facebook's help section: www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

To set which types of ads are shown to you within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising: www.facebook.com/settings. The settings are made platform-independent, which means that they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
To advertise our products and services as well as to communicate with interested parties or customers, we have a presence on the Instagram platform.
On this social media platform, we are jointly responsible with Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Irland.
The data protection officer of Instagram can be reached via this contact form: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/540977946302970
We have defined the joint responsibility in an agreement regarding the respective obligations within the meaning of the GDPR. This agreement, which sets out the reciprocal obligations, is available at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum
The legal basis for the processing of the resulting and subsequently disclosed personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, communication, sales, and promotion of our products and services.
The legal basis may also be your consent per Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR granted to the platform operator. Per Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR, you may revoke this consent with the platform operator at any time with future effect.
When accessing our online presence on the Instagram platform, Facebook Ireland Ltd. as the operator of the platform in the EU will process your data (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.).

Use of Google (Universal) Analytics
This website uses the "Google Analytics" service due to our legitimate interests in optimizing and analyzing our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f. DSGVO the service "Google Analytics", which is offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement: www.privacyshield.gov/participant.
IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted unabbreviated to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
As part of the agreement on commissioned data, which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use.

Google AdWords Remarketing
We use Google AdWords to advertise this website in Google search results and on third-party websites. If you have given us your consent to do so, the so-called remarketing cookie is set by Google when you visit our website, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by means of a pseudonymous CookieID and on the basis of the pages you have visited. After the end of the purpose and the end of the use of Google AdWords Remarketing by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted.
Additional data processing only takes place if you have consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalize ads you see on the web. In this case, if you are logged in to Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google temporarily links your personal data with Google Analytics data to form target groups.
Google AdWords Remarketing is an offer of Google LLC (www.google.de). Google LLC is headquartered in the USA and is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. Based on this agreement between the USA and the European Commission, the latter has determined an adequate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating the remarketing cookie. In addition, you can obtain information from the Digital Advertising Alliance about the setting of cookies and make settings in this regard.
We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our websites. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to verify whether data entry on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior 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, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not made aware that an analysis is taking place.
The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.
Our website uses Google Fonts to display external fonts. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereinafter: Google).
To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established whenever our website is accessed.
The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization and economic operation of our site.
When you access our site, a connection to Google is established from which Google can identify the site from which your request has been sent and to which IP address the fonts are being transmitted for display.

Voucher offers of Profity/Sovendus
In order to select a voucher offer that is currently of interest to you, we will transmit the hash value of your e-mail address and your IP address to Sovendus GmbH, Moltkestr. 11, 76133 Karlsruhe (Sovendus) in pseudonymized and encrypted form (Art. 6 para.1 f DSGVO). The pseudonymized hash value of the e-mail address is used by Sovendus to take into account any objection to advertising (Art. 21 para.3, Art. 6 para.1 c DSGVO). The IP address is used by Sovendus exclusively for data security purposes and is usually anonymized after seven days (Art. 6 para.1 f DSGVO). In addition, for billing purposes, we transmit pseudonymized order number, order value with currency, session ID, benefit code and timestamp to Sovendus (Art. 6 para.1 f DSGVO).

Awin affiliate network
We use Awin on our website. Awin is a German affiliate network of Awin AG, Landsberger Allee 104 BC, 10249 Berlin, hereinafter referred to only as “Awin”.
Affiliate marketing is a special form of distribution, which enables commercial operators of websites (“referred to as “merchants” or also “advertisers”) to display advertising, which is mostly remunerated via commissions, on websites of distribution partners (referred to as “affiliates” or “publishers”). The merchant releases advertising materials via the affiliate network, e.g., in the form of advertising banner, which can then be integrated by an affiliate on its own website.
In addition to our own content, we are also interested in showing you advertisements that are as interesting as possible. Therefore, we also make our website available as an advertising space for third parties and receive many contacts to advertisers via the Awin affiliate network. Thus, we are able to place topic-specific ads on our website and receive a commission for successful transactions (leads, sales).
In case you have granted your consent to this processing the legal basis is Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The legal basis can also be Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization of our online offers and our marketing measures as well as the processing of commission payments with Awin AG.
For this purpose, Awin stores cookies on your terminal device via your Internet browser. The cookies thus set by Awin do not store any personal data. Only the identification number of the affiliate is stored, as well as the order number of the visitor to a website and the advertising material clicked. This data is then used to process commission payments between a merchant and the affiliate, which are settled via the affiliate network, i.e., Awin.
You can block the setting of such cookies at any time by means of appropriate settings in your Internet browser and thus permanently prevent the setting of cookies. Further details can be found above under “Cookies”. Such settings of your Internet browser prevent Awin from setting a cookie on your system. The option also exists to delete cookies already set by Awin via the settings of your Internet browser.
You can access Awin’s data protection information at https://www.awin.com/de/datenschutzerklarung.
We offer you a newsletter, in which you will be informed about current events and offers. If you want to subscribe to the newsletter, you must provide a valid email address. If you subscribe to the newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and the explained procedures. The newsletter is sent by the shipping service provider Brevo, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany. Brevo is a service with which, among other things, the dispatch of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on brevo's servers in the EU.
If you do not want brevo to analyze your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.
Brevo also enables us to subdivide ("cluster") newsletter recipients according to various categories. In doing so, the newsletter recipients can be subdivided according to the selection of the desired newsletters. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.
The processing of the data entered in the newsletter form is based exclusively on your consent. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address will be deactivated by us or the newsletter service provider in order to prevent future mailings. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements for sending newsletters. The storage is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
Credit assessment by CRIF AG
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that payment history, in particular concerning undisputed claims and claims unpaid after the due date, as well as debt collection information and address data, if applicable, will be transmitted to CRIF AG in Zurich for legitimate use as credit information. CRIF will use the data to check your identity and creditworthiness and disclose them to authorized third parties.
