Thank you for your interest in our online shop. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following we will inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

1. ACCESS DATA AND HOSTING

You can visit our website without giving any personal information. Each time a website is called up, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. This serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the website.
