The legal basis for the use of cookies is described in Art 6. para1. lit f DSGVO .

Only the Internet Protocol address is stored—no other personal data. The information stored in the cookies allows you to be automatically recognized the next time you visit our website, which will make it easier for you to use.

If you do not want your computer to be recognised the next time you visit our website, you can also refuse to use cookies by changing your browser settings to "refuse cookies". The respective procedure can be found in the operating instructions of your browser. If you reject the use of cookies, however, there may be restrictions in the use of some areas of our website.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not collect personally identifiable information. The tool triggers other tags that may themselves collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will persist for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. Google's privacy policy for this tool can be found here: https://https://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

Google Analytics with anonymization function

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google", on our site. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored by Google in the United States.

We use Google Analytics with the add-on "_gat._anonymizeIp" on our website. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymized.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

Google will not, according to its own specifications, associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website.

In addition, Google offers an ‘Opt-out’ browser add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data Google collects about the website you visit. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use.

For more information about installing the browser add-on, can be found on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

If you visit our site from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you must click this link instead to prevent Google Analytics from tracking you within this site in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on above. Clicking the link will set an opt-out cookie in your browser that is only valid for that browser and domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.

If you have consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalize ads, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create cross-device remarketing audience lists. Google Analytics first collects your Google-authenticated ID associated with your Google Account (i.e., personally identifiable information) on our website. Google Analytics will then temporarily associate your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimize our target audiences.

If you don't agree, you can opt out by setting your preferences in the "My Account" section of your Google Account.

We set up a password-protected direct access to the inventory data (customer account) stored by us for each customer who registers accordingly. Here you can view data about your completed, open and recently shipped orders and manage your address data. You undertake to treat the personal access data confidentially and not to make them accessible to unauthorised third parties. We cannot assume any liability for misused passwords, unless we are responsible for the misuse

Newsletter

For the dispatch of the newsletter we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will only send you a newsletter by e-mail if you have expressly confirmed to us beforehand that we should activate the newsletter service. We will then send you a notification e-mail and ask you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of subscription. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address to register you for receiving the newsletter without your knowledge or authorization. Should you no longer wish to receive newsletters from us at a later date, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.
