4. data processing in data collection and use for contract execution

4.1. data processing when contacting and registering as a customer

We collect company data as well as personal data (e.g. contact person in your company to process the order), if you voluntarily provide us with these in the course of your registration to prepare an order or when contacting us by e-mail.  
Compulsory fields when registering or contacting us are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data mandatory for contract execution, or to process your contact and we can not send the order or contact without their specification. Which data is collected during registration or contacting is evident from the respective input forms. This data is required in the case of an order for contract processing within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and in the case of an establishment of contact for answering; legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

4.2. Data processing when opening a customer account

You can open a customer account with us. Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account and maintaining the customer account. These are exclusively at the opening of the customer account queried data.
After complete execution of the contract for the order or deletion of your customer account, your personal data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the expiry of the tax and commercial retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to further data use, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this statement.

5. Data Sharing

5.1. Sharing with Shopware eCommerce Software

Our webshop is a Shopware eCommerce solution. Shopware stores cookies in your browser to ensure the basic functions of the store. On the basis of the cookies, for example, the shopping cart content, the login state and also the CSRF protection is enabled. Without having allowed these cookies in the browser, Shopware cannot be used. Shopware stores only IDs in your browser, the assignment to the respective information are made in the application area.
On the basis of the session cookie, Shopware decides whether you have an active shopping cart and whether you are logged in. So this serves as identification between your browser and the server. No other information is stored in the browser except for the session ID.
In addition, Shopware generates an individual CSRF cookie when you visit the store, so that you can operate the individual areas of the store.
In addition, an SLT cookie is set, which allows us to recognize you when you return to our online store, even if the session has already expired. The SLT cookie can be deactivated in the basic settings of your browser.
When you put a product on the notepad, a cookie with the name "sUniqueID" is created for this purpose in order to save the contents of the notepad. The saved products are stored. In the Local Storage of the browser, the information about the "last viewed items" is also stored. More information about Shopware can be found here: shopware AG, Ebbinghoff 10, 48624 Schöppingen,

5.2. Transfer to shipping service providers

For contract fulfillment pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, we pass on your data necessary for shipping to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. The delivery of the goods is carried out by the transport service provider DPD (DPD Deutschland GmbH, Wailandtstraße 1, 63741 Aschaffenburg, Germany).
We only pass on the name of the recipient and the delivery address to the service provider for the purpose of delivery in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. Details on the data protection of the shipping service provider commissioned by us and its privacy policy can be viewed on the DPD website at "".

5.3. Transfer to the service provider Proclane

We use a special service provider that hosts the webshop operated by us via software provided for this purpose.
This is done via the service provider "Proclane" (responsible entity is PROCLANE Commerce GmbH, Willy-Brandt-Straße 57, 20457 Hamburg). Name, address and, if applicable, other personal data will be passed on to Proclane in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO exclusively for the purpose of processing the online order. Your data will only be passed on to the extent that this is actually necessary for processing the order. Details of Proclane's data protection and Proclane's privacy policy can be viewed on Proclane's website at "".

6. integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge / other widgets

If you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, Trusted Shops widgets are integrated on this website to display the Trusted Shops services (e.g. seal of approval, collected ratings) after an order.

The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops AG, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne, Germany Phone: 0221 - 77 53 66, Fax: 0221 - 7 75 36 89, E-Mail: ("Trusted Shops"), with whom we are jointly responsible for data protection according to Art. 26 DSGVO. Within the scope of this data protection notice, we inform you in the following about the essential contractual contents pursuant to Art. 26 (2) DSGVO. The essential further contractual contents can be found on the website of Trusted Shops.

In the context of the joint responsibility existing between us and Trusted Shops, please contact Tröstend Shops preferably in the event of data protection questions and to assert your rights using the contact options specified in the data protection information. Irrespective of this, however, you can always contact the responsible person of your choice. If necessary, your request will then be forwarded to the other controller for a response.

6.1 Data processing when integrating the trust badge/other widgets

The trust badge is provided by a US CDN provider (content delivery network). An adequate level of data protection is ensured by standard data protection clauses and other contractual measures.

When the trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of the call-up, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call-up. The IP address is anonymised immediately after collection so that the stored data cannot be assigned to you personally. The anonymised data is used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.

6.2 Data processing after order completion

If you have given your consent, the trustbadge accesses order information stored in your terminal device (order total, order number, product purchased if applicable) and e-mail address after order completion and your e-mail address is hashed using a cryptological one-way function. The hash value is then transmitted to Trusted Shops with the order information in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. This serves to check whether you are already registered for Trusted Shops services. If this is the case, further processing will take place in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you are not yet registered for the services or do not give your consent to automatic recognition via the Trustbadge, you will subsequently be given the opportunity to register manually for the use of the services or to complete the protection within the scope of your possibly already existing user agreement.

For this purpose, the Trustbadge accesses the following information after completion of your order, which is stored in the terminal device used by you: Order total, order number and email address. This is necessary so that we can offer you buyer protection. The data is only transmitted to Trusted Shops if you actively decide to take out buyer protection by clicking on the correspondingly designated button in the so-called trust card. If you decide to use the services, further processing is based on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, in order to be able to complete your registration for buyer protection and secure the order, as well as to be able to subsequently send you rating invitations by e-mail if necessary.

Trusted Shops uses service providers in the areas of hosting, monitoring and logging. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation. Processing may take place in third countries (USA and Israel). An adequate level of data protection is ensured in the case of the USA by standard data protection clauses and further contractual measures and in the case of Israel by an adequacy decision. Further information is available here.

7. integration of third-party providers

7.2. Notes on Matomo Cloud

We continue to use the "Matomo" service, which is offered by InnoCraft Ltd (150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, NZBN 6106769), to optimize and analyze our online offering. Matomo also uses "cookies" - text files that are stored on your terminal device.

Insofar as a data transfer to InnoCraft's company headquarters takes place outside the EEA, this is secured by an EU adequacy decision for New Zealand.
We have set Matomo so that IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form in order to limit direct personal reference. Through IP anonymization, the end of your IP address is replaced by zeros immediately after collection.
Under the terms of the commissioned data agreement, which we as website operators have concluded with Matomo, the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.
The data collected by Matomo on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, for example, to create reports on website activity in order to improve our online offering.
