- The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes (sect. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR).
- Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (sect. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR).
- Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject (sect. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR).
- Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child (sect. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR).
Apart from this, you may visit our website without providing any information concerning your person.
Personal data (e.g. your name, address data or contact details), which you disclose to us on your own, e.g. in the scope of a query by email to the contacts named on our homepage, will only be stored by us and processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided these data to us. These data are processed based on sect. 6 para. 1 a; 6 para. 1 f GDPR.
We would like to point out that the data transmission on the internet (e.g. in the case of email communication) may involve gaps in security. Complete data privacy against third-party access is not possible. Therefore, you should send us any confidential data on another path, e.g. by mail.
If you want to buy any goods via our shop, you need to register on the corresponding page. There is some mandatory information that is marked with an asterisk (*) (e.g. your name, gender, address data and email address as well as a password). These data are transmitted encrypted (recognisable by the protocol "https", which is automatically switched to) and stored in a profile. You can then personally log in and order goods with an individual password and email address.
These personal data that you disclose to us in the scope of registration shall only be processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided these data to us, e.g. to process the orders placed by you.
If a longer business relationship is foreseeable, we may perform a creditworthiness check (Creditreform).
The legal basis for processing of your personal data is sect. 6 para. 1 b), sect. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.
Personal data (e.g. your name, address data or contact details), which you disclose to us on your own via one of our contact forms will only be stored by us and processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided these data to us.
