However, we cooperate with third parties for the operation of these websites or for the provision of products/services. Third parties may however receive knowledge of personal data in this process. We carefully select our service providers – in particular regarding data protection and data security – and take all data protection measures necessary for permissible data processing.
Data processing outside the EU

Server log files
When you visit our website, the company we use to operate the website processes and stores technical information about the terminal device used by you (operating system, screen resolution and other non-personal features) and about the browser (version, language settings), in particular the public IP address of the computer you use to visit our website, including the date and time of access. The IP address is a unique numeric address under which your terminal device sends/retrieves data to/from the Internet. Unless you share data that allows us to identify you while using our website, our service provider or we are generally unable to know to whom an IP address belongs. Furthermore, a user may be identified if legal action is taken against them (e.g. in the case of attacks on website) and we become aware of their identity during the investigation. As a rule, you need not worry about us being able to assign your IP address to you.
Our service provider uses the processed data in a non-personally identifiable manner for statistical purposes so that we can trace what kind of terminal devices, with which settings, are used to access our website, and then optimize them accordingly. These statistics do not contain any personally identifiable data. The basis for compiling the statistics is our interest in improving and operating our business economically (legal basis GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 f).
The IP address is further used so that you can technically access and use our website, and to detect and ward off attacks against our service provider or our website. Unfortunately, attacks designed to harm website operators or their users (e.g. to prevent access, spy on data, distribute malware [e.g. viruses], or for other unlawful purposes) are repeatedly carried out. Such attacks would impair the proper functioning of the data center of the company we have commissioned, the use of our website or its features, and the security of visitors to our website. The IP address and the time of access are processed to ward off such attacks. By means of this processing, we – by way of our service provider – pursue the legitimate interest of ensuring the functionality of our website and preventing unlawful attacks against us and our website visitors. The legal basis for processing is our interest in improving and operating our business economically (legal basis GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 f)..
The stored IP data is deleted (by means of anonymization) as soon as it is no longer required for the detection of or defence against an attack.
Data transmission for the conclusion of contracts for online shops, retailers and the dispatch of goods
When you purchase a product, we process the data you provide for the conclusion of the contract and its execution. To the extent necessary, data will be transferred to service providers for the dispatch and billing of your purchase. The basis of the data processing is the fulfilment of the contract (legal basis GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 b).
We also process this data to detect and ward off fraud (legal basis GDPR: Art. 6 (1) f). In doing so, we aim to protect ourselves from fraudulent transactions.
Data stored in connection with the conclusion of a contract for the purchase of a product shall be deleted after the end of the statutory retention period. Insofar as legal recording and storage obligations (e.g. storage of invoices in accordance with tax law) exist as a result of the execution of a purchase contract, these are applied (legal basis GDPR: Art. 6 Para. 1 c).
We delete or anonymize data if it is no longer required for the execution of the respective contract and no legal retention obligations exist.

If you send us a message via one of the contact options offered, we will use the data you have communicated to us to process your request. The basis for this is our legitimate interest in responding to your request (legal basis GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 f). If your request serves to conclude a contract with us, the fulfilment of this contract is another basis for the processing (legal basis GDPR Art. 6 Para. 1 b). The data will be deleted after the completion of your request. If we are required by law to store the data for a longer period, the deletion will take place after the appropriate period expires.
Registration / Customer account
Upon creating a customer account, we shall process the data you provide to create and manage the account and to enable you to use the services associated with your customer account. The basis of the processing is your consent (legal basis GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 a). If the creation of the customer account serves to conclude a contract with us, the fulfilment of this contract is an additional basis for processing (legal basis GDPR Art. 6 Para. 1 b).
This data is stored until the customer account is deleted. If we are required by law to store the data for a longer period (e.g. to fulfill accounting obligations) or are permitted by law to store the data for a longer period (e.g. due to an ongoing legal dispute against the holder of a user account), the data shall be deleted after the end of the storage obligation or statutory permission.
The data entered in the registration form, which can be seen from the entry registration form;
Date of birth
are collected and stored solely for the use of our offer. By registering on our site, we will also store your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This is in the event that a third party abuses your data and registers with this data without your knowledge on our side, as a hedge on our part. A comparison of the data collected with data, which may be collected by other components of our site, is also not done.
Google Analytics analysis tool
Google Analytics allows us to compile usage statistics for our website, as well as demographic data on visitors and their user behaviour, in non-personally identifiable form. Statistics are also compiled to help us better understand how visitors find our site, so that we can improve our search engine optimisation and advertising efforts. This processing enables us to pursue the legitimate interest to be able to improve our website as well as our advertising measures (legal basis GDPR: Article 6 (1) f).
You can find information on how to opt out of using Google Analytics at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Google is a member of the PrivacyShield Agreement and has entered into an order processing contract with us for Google Analytics. Pseudonymous data will be deleted after 12 months.
We have activated the function IP anonymization on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US 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 website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Use of YOUTUBE
We have included YouTube videos on our website. YouTube is an offer from YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
Embedding YouTube videos on our portal is based solely on YouTube's "Advanced Privacy Mode". According to its own information, YouTube stores information about visitors to a website only when they click on the video and play it. For more information, see https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/171780?hl=en the "Enable Advanced Privacy Mode" section. Playing videos involves a considerable amount of data, especially when different visitors to the website watch videos in parallel. Furthermore, the playback of the videos is speeded up and thus improves their playback quality when playing from a server that is as close as possible to the visitor to the website. We can not guarantee this ourselves due to the considerable technical effort involved. We have therefore included the videos via Youtube (DSGVO legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 f).
Additional information about YouTube's privacy is provided by Google at the following link:

If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can not be read by third parties.
