Personal data, as defined in Art. 4 lit. 1. DSGVO, is all information concerning a natural person that can be used to establish their identity. This includes information such as your name, date of birth, gender, payment information, postal address and email address. Personal data that you provide to us as part of your visit to our website (or by other means) or that we collect automatically when you visit our website, will only be used by us to the extent that it is necessary and for legally permissible purposes.
No personal data may be collected and processed from persons under the age of 16 without the consent of their legal representatives or appropriate supervisors. Persons under the age of 16 are therefore required either to obtain the necessary consent or to refrain from using our website and our offers that are connected to the collection of personal data.
In the following context, your visit to our website automatically collects and processes personal data (as per Art. 6 para. 1 DSGVO):
In the following context, when you visit our website, the (possibly personal) data that you transmit to us is being collected and processed (as per Art. 6 para. 1 DSGVO):
In the following context, we use your (possibly personal) data (as per Art. 6 para. 1 DSGVO):
In order to be able to fulfill our contractual obligations in the event of a contract between you and us, or to process the relevant data in the event that you consent to the processing of your personal data, we may transfer your personal data to companies or other third parties affiliated with us (these third parties are our external service providers and business partners such as advertisers, social networks, subcontractors, suppliers, individuals or companies interested in acquiring our business or parts thereof, etc.). These third parties process your personal information (among other things) on our behalf, provided that we have entered into an appropriate contract data processing agreement with the third party concerned. Likewise, in the case of corresponding legal obligations or requirements, a transfer to legal authorities or other public bodies is possible.
We use SSL encryption on our website for security reasons (in particular for the protection of the transmission of confidential data transferred to us). The creation of such an encrypted connection can be identified by the browser address line beginning with "https://" (instead of "http://") and a lock symbol displayed in the browser address line. An active SSL encryption prevents the data you transmit to us from being viewed by third parties.
If you contact us via a webform (e.g. contact or order form) on our website, the information provided by you in the respective form (including contact details) will be stored by us (legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or, in the case of a form for concluding a contract, also Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the DSGVO). This is for the purpose of processing your request, including any follow-up questions. Without your consent (which can be revoked at any time, even informally) the transmitted data will not be passed on to third parties.
If you have actively agreed to this (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO), we will send you an email newsletter on a regular basis to inform you about important or interesting topics in connection with our offers or services. To obtain your consent, we will use the Double Opt-In procedure, which means we will only send you a newsletter once you have confirmed by checking a box or clicking on a link that we may activate the newsletter for you. Should you later on no longer wish to receive newsletters from us, you can refuse further delivery of these at any time. You can use the "unsubscribe" link that appears in every newsletter. You can also use any other written communication to us, e.g. letter or email. If you have unsubscribed from the newsletter using any of the methods mentioned above, you will not receive any more newsletters and the information you have provided for ordering the newsletter will be deleted. However, this does not affect data which, incidentally, has been lawfully stored by us for other purposes and is still required by us.
We also use the following third-party services on our website. We have no influence on the distribution and functions of these services, which is why we refer to the websites of the relevant third-party providers for further information:
If you are interested in finding out how to prevent so-called "tracking cookies", we recommend that you visit the following websites (including the option to download programs with a relevant delete or block cookies function):
Legislators have issued a variety of data retention requirements and time limits. Once these legal time limits have expired, your related data will be routinely deleted. Of course, your data will also be deleted if the intended use no longer requires it. Furthermore, in accordance with applicable law, you have the right to revoke or limit your consent to the free use of your personal information at any time, (i.e. what data we process and to which purposes) and, if appropriate, the right to amend, block, delete or receive an electronic copy of your personal data stored by us for transmission to third parties (if you have a claim to data transfer).

The relevant supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is generally the Data Protection Commissioner in the state where the responsible person has their place of business, as per the GDPR.
