Welcome to our website!

We attach maximum importance to protecting your data and safeguarding your privacy. Therefore, we provide information below regarding collection and use of personal data while using our website.

 

Anonymous data collection

You can visit our websites without having to provide any personal details. We do not save any personal data in this connection. In order to improve our offer, we evaluate only the statistical data, which does not allow any inference of your personal details.

 

Collection and processing while using the contact form

When using the contact form, we collect personal data (particulars of personal or objective relationships of a particular or definable natural person) only within the scope provided by you. We use your email address only for processing your request. Your data is deleted subsequently if you do not approve of the further processing and use.


Collection, processing and use of personal data

We collect personal data (particulars of personal or objective relationships of a particular or definable natural person) only within the scope provided by you. Your personal data is processed and used for completing and processing your order and also for processing your requests. After the contract is processed completely, all the personal data is first saved taking into account the retention periods under fiscal and commercial law and then deleted after the expiry of the deadline, if you have not approved of the further processing and use.

We additionally refer to the following:

We use the Käufersiegel rating system. According to your order, we would like to request you to rate your purchase from us and comment on it. For this purpose, we will contact you within the scope of the order processing, whereby we will make use of the technical system of the supplier of the Käufersiegel rating tool, Händlerbund Management AG, Leipzig, within the scope of order data processing. Torgauer Straße 233 B, 04347 Leipzig, within the scope of order data processing. Your email address will only be used for this purpose here and not for any further use in particular and will also not be forwarded to other third parties. The personal data saved in this context in the technical system of the Käufersiegel rating system is deleted 3 months after the product delivery recorded for the rating.


Forwarding personal data

Your data is not forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent. Only our service partners, which we require for handling the contractual relationship, are excluded from this. In these cases, we strictly adhere to the specifications of the Federal Data Protection Act. The scope of the data transfer is restricted to a minimum.

 

Data collection and processing for credit assessment

If we have to pay advance costs, e.g. in case of a purchase on account or a debit note, we reserve the right to obtain credit information if necessary, for safeguarding our authorised interests, on the basis of mathematical and statistical methods by using Creditreform München Ganzmüller, Groher & Kollegen KG, Machtlfinger Str. 13, 81379 München . For this, we transfer the personal data required for a credit assessment there and use the information received about the statistical probability of a payment default for the carefully considered decision about the substantiation, execution or termination of the contractual relationship.

The credit information can contain probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically accepted mathematical and statistical methods and address data among other things is included in their calculation. Your interests that are worth being protected are considered in accordance with the statutory regulations.

 

Data collection and processing in case of the payment method purchase on account via BillSAFE

In case of a purchase on account transaction that is carried out via BillSAFE (a PayPal service), the seller irrevocably cedes his entire payment claim against you to PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. ,22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (“PayPal”).

In case of the payment method purchase on account via BillSAFE, PayPal conducts an identity and credit assessment. For purposes of processing the purchase on account, you are requested during the ordering process to specify your personal data such as first and last name, address, date of birth, email address and telephone number. PayPal uses the aforementioned data, together with additional data - such as shopping cart details, invoice amount, order history and payment records - to check whether the payment option to be allowed can be ensured with reference to the payment default and/or bad debt risks.

Within the scope of the legally permissible interests and considering your interests that are worth being protected, PayPal transfers your address data to credit reporting agencies for the identity and credit assessment if necessary. The institutes in Germany are given below:

  • SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, D-65201 Wiesbaden, Tel.: +49 (0)611-9278-0, Fax: -109

For the purpose of its own credit check, PayPal retrieves credit information on the basis of mathematical and statistical methods (probability and/or score values) from the institutes mentioned above. The evaluation of these score values allows PayPal to take a decision about the substantiation, execution or termination of the contractual relationship. In addition to your address details, information regarding your current payment history as well as the probability values regarding your payment history in the future is included as well.

Your personal data is transferred to one of the abovementioned credit agencies for purposes of identity assessment as well.

Here, the credit agency compares the data specified by you with the data saved about you and notifies the degree of compliance in percentage values. In addition, a reference to an ID-based check carried out at the credit agency in the past can also be provided if necessary. PayPal can use the transferred compliance rates to identify whether a person is saved under the address specified by you in the database of the credit agency.

Paypal ensures in this regard that the mentioned institutes process and/or use the data on their part exclusively within the scope of the specific function.
