Personal data is used exclusively for the purpose of establishing the contract, structuring its content, implementing or handling the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I S. 1 b GDPR).
In addition, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent to do so (Art. 6 I p. 1 a GDPR) or if the processing of such data is necessary for our legitimate interests and provided that the weighing of interests shows that there are no overriding interests, fundamental rights or fundamental freedoms that conflict with your interests (Art. 6 I p. 1 f GDPR).
We may use contract processors to process your personal data, but will not pass on your personal data to third parties.
The data will only be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery for the fulfillment of the contract, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. In order to process payments, the necessary payment data will be passed on to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the commissioned and selected payment service provider.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google and operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"), and collects and stores data via this web analytics service from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. The user profiles created in this way serve to evaluate visitor behavior in order to design and improve the offer presented on this website in line with demand. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", small text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. Also, the user profiles maintained under a pseudonym are not merged with the personal data of the user without the express and separately declared consent of the user. Thus, the weighing of interests shows that there are no overriding interests on your part that conflict with this (Art. 6 I S. 1 f GDPR). You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
