Unless otherwise stated below, the provision of your personal data is not required by law or contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the data. Non-provision of the data has no consequences. This applies only insofar as no other information is given in the following processing procedures.

"Personal data" means all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Server log files

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever you access our website, usage data is transmitted to us or our web host / IT service provider by your Internet browser and stored in log files (so-called server log files).

When you place an order, we collect and process your personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfil and process your order and to deal with your enquiries.

Your data will be passed on, for example, to the mail-order companies and dropshipping providers you have chosen, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers.
