Data privacy

Privacy policy

Unless otherwise stated below, the provision of your personal data is neither legally or contractually required, nor necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Failure to provide it will have no consequences. This applies only to the extent that no indication to the contrary is made in the subsequent processing operations. “Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Server log files

You can visit my website without providing any personal information. Every time you access my website, usage data is transmitted to me or my web host / IT service provider by your internet browser and stored in log data (so-called server log files). This stored data includes, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the IP address, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR due to my overriding legitimate interest in ensuring the trouble-free operation of my website as well as for the improvement of my offer.

Orders

Collection, processing and forwarding of personal data for orders

When you place an order, I collect and process your personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment and processing of your order and for dealing with your enquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide it will result in no contract being concluded. The processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR and is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you.

Your data is passed on, for example, to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers you have chosen, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers. In all cases, I strictly observe the legal requirements. The scope of the data transfer is limited to a minimum.

Technically necessary cookies

Unless otherwise stated in the privacy policy below, I only use these technically necessary cookies for the purpose of making my offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.

Analysis

Use of Google Analytics

On my website, I use the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google LLC. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you have your habitual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the controller of your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company associated with Google which is responsible for processing your data and complying with the applicable data protection laws.

The data processing serves the purpose of analysing this website and its visitors as well as for marketing and advertising purposes. To this end, Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. In the process, the following information may be collected, among others: IP address, date and time of page view, click path, information about the browser you are using and the device you are using, pages visited, referrer URL (website from which you accessed our website), location data, purchase activity.The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

Google Analytics uses technologies such as cookies, web storage in the browser and tracking pixels, which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by this about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation is activated on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google has certified itself in accordance with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus obliged to comply with the European data protection guidelines.

The data processing, in particular the setting of cookies, is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR from my overriding legitimate interest in the needs-based and targeted design of the website. You have the right to object at any time to this processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) f GDPR for reasons that arise from your particular situation. You can prevent the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

To prevent data collection and storage by Google Analytics across devices, you can set an opt-out cookie. Opt-out cookies prevent future collection of your data when visiting this website. You must opt-out on all systems and devices used for this to be fully effective. If you delete the opt-out cookie, requests will be sent to Google again.

Use of Google Maps

I use the function for embedding GoogleMaps maps of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”) on my website.

The function enables the visual display of geographical information and interactive maps. In the process, Google also collects, processes and uses data from visitors to the websites when they call up the pages in which GoogleMaps maps are integrated.

Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. Google has certified itself in accordance with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus obliged to comply with the European data protection guidelines.

The function displays videos stored on YouTube in an iFrame on the website. The option “Extended data protection mode” is activated.

Your data may be transmitted to the USA. Google has certified itself in accordance with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus obliged to comply with the European data protection guidelines.
