Server Data

For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected: - type and version of the browser you use - operating system - websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL) - websites that you visit - date and time of your visit - your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.

Personal Data Protection

Personal Data shall only be collected and used by the supplier, if legally allowed or approved by the user. In general, it is obvious to the user what data is being saved while using the service, e.g. Name, E-mail address and notification by usuage of the order form. For the purpose of ordering items, collected data (e.g. name, e-mail-adress, address, payment data) will be used for the fulfillment and processing of the contract. We treat all data as strictly confidential. For data protection reasons, it is transmitted securely using encoding and will not be passed on to third party, that is not involved in the order, delivery or payment process. By contacting the supplier (per contact form or email), we save the personal data, for the purpose of processing the inquiries as well as for the case of arising follow-up questions. The supplier has met organizational , contractual and technical safety measures, to make sure, that the data security provisions are observed and accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, damage or the acces of unauthorized people are prevented.

Dataforwarding to third party

User data is only passed on to third party, if it is legally allowed or the user has approved. For example when the data is used to fulfill contractual obligations to the user and the post adress is passed on to the shipping supplier after an order has been made. Or if competent authorities in the field of law enforcement request the data. The user’s personal data will in no way be passed on to third parties for advertising purpose or for creating user accounts to sell or pass on.

Cookies

We use cookies to optimise the user-friendly navigation and usage of our website. Cookies are small files with text information that are stored on your hard drive while you visit our site. We need the cookies to identify and authorise you after your successful registration in the protected area, for the full duration of your visit. However, cookies also serve to track the preferences of website visitors. This helps us to better customise our website contents to your needs and to improve our offers for you.

All users may view our offers without having enabled the cookies. If you opt not to accept cookies, however, you may not be able to benefit from the full features of our site.

Some of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from your hard drive after the end of the browser session (session cookies). For example, we need session cookies to be able to offer you the "Basket" function throughout several pages. We also use cookies that remain on your hard drive for a certain period of time (between one day and five years, depending on the cookie) after the browser session. When you revisit our site, it will automatically recall the country and language you selected at your last visit to our website. These "persistent cookies" are stored on your hard drive and will be deleted by the browser after the given time. The cookies may also be cookies of third party providers.

USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS

We also use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics is based on cookies and allows an analysis of website usage. As we have activated IP anonymisation for our website, the IP addresses that are automatically transmitted with the usage details are abbreviated by Google within the European Union or other contracting states of the European Economic Area before the data are forwarded to and stored in the USA. It is only in exceptional cases that IP addresses are transmitted first to a Google server in the USA, where they are shortened. Acting on our behalf, Google uses the data to analyse the use of the website for us, to compile website activity reports, and to render further services relating to website and internet use. The above described IP anonymising procedure has been agreed between Google Inc. and the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information and recognised as compliant with data protection requirements (see the press release).

Use of Remarketing- or “Similar Audiences”-Function of Google Inc.

The website provider uses the remarketing or "Similar Audiences" feature of Google Inc. ("Google"). This feature enables the provider to target visitors to the website by displaying personalized, interest-based advertising to visitors of the provider's website when they visit other websites on the Google Display Network. In order to carry out the analysis of the website usage, which forms the basis for the creation of interest-related advertisements, Google uses so-called cookies. For this, Google stores a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the visitors of the website. This number records website visits and anonymous data on website use. There is no storage of personal data of visitors to the website. If you visit another website on the Google Display Network, you will see ads that are likely to include previously viewed product and information areas. You may permanently disable the use of cookies by Google by following the link below and downloading and installing the plug-in provided there: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=en

Use of Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We use the Google AdWords online advertising program and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion-tracking cookie will be placed on your machine. These cookies have a limited validity, contain no personal data and therefore no personal identification. If you visit certain web pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we recognize that you clicked on a particular ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information obtained through the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. It informs customers about the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software (deactivation option). You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. For more information and Google's privacy policy, please visit: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
