1. DATA PROTECTION AT A GLANCE
The following information provides a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data are all data with which you can be personally identified. Detailed information on the subject of data protection can be found in our data protection declaration listed below this text.
Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find their contact details in the legal notice of this website.
How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you communicate it to us. This can, for example, be data that you enter into a contact form.
Other data are automatically recorded by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time the page was viewed). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data is collected to ensure that the website is error-free and to smoothly process a purchase. Other data can be used to analyze your user behaviour.
What rights do you have with regard to your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
When you visit our website, your surfing behavior can be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with cookies and so-called analysis programmes. Your surfing behavior is usually analyzed anonymously; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You can find details on this in our data protection declaration under the heading “Third-party modules and analysis tools”.
You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about the possibilities of objection in this data protection declaration.
2. Customer account & orders
When you open a customer account, we collect your personal data to the extent specified there. The data processing serves the purpose of improving your shopping experience and simplifying order processing. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation. Your customer account will then be deleted.
Collection, processing and transfer of personal data for orders.
When you place an order, we only collect and process your personal data insofar as this is necessary to fulfill and process your order and to process your inquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide the data means that no contract can be concluded. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR and is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract with you.
Your data will be passed on, for example, to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers you have chosen, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers. In all cases we strictly observe the legal requirements. The amount of data transmission is limited to a minimum. The legal basis for the transfer of data is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR.
Age verification process
In the case of ordering age-restricted goods, we ensure that you have reached the legally required minimum age for the goods in question in accordance with the applicable youth protection law. We use an age verification procedure for this, with which we can ensure your personal identification (age verification) and, if necessary, authentication. For this purpose we use the service FRASPY Age Check & Identity Check, Andreas van Loock, TOOLPIXX, Nettetalstraße 24, D-56745 Rieden.
For the purpose of checking the required minimum age, some of your personal data will be transmitted to the above service provider. This data processing takes place in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests, which are predominant in the context of a weighing up of interests, in ensuring an offer that is compliant with youth protection law and also in compliance with the legal provisions on the protection of minors.
Contact, reviews & newsletter
When you use the contact form, we collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) only to the extent that you have made available. The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the transmitted data. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR with your consent.
You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation. We only use your e-mail address to process your request. Your data will then be deleted unless you have consented to further processing and use.
Use of the e-mail address for sending newsletters
We use your e-mail address, regardless of the contract processing, exclusively for our own advertising purposes for sending the newsletter, provided you have expressly consented to this or are already listed with us in a business relationship or as an existing customer (§7 Para. 3 German Law against Unfair Competition (UWG)). In accordance with the statutory provisions, we primarily use your previous purchase data and interest data for the selection of advertising purposes, from which we derive your product interests taking into account your purchase activities. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR with your consent or the purchase in our webshop. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the point of revocation. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the corresponding link in the newsletter or by sending us an informal message without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs (e.g. internet connection costs, postage). Your e-mail address will then be removed from the mailing list.
Your data will be passed on to a service provider for e-mail marketing as part of order processing. It will not be passed on to other third parties.
Payment service provider
Use of PayPal
Use of Stripe
On our website we offer, among other things, payment via Stripe and the associated payment methods. The provider of these payment services is

If you choose to pay via Stripe, the payment details you have entered will be transmitted to Stripe.
Your data is transmitted to Stripe on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR (consent) and Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR (processing to fulfill a contract). You have the option of withdrawing your consent to data processing at any time. A revocation does not affect the effectiveness of data processing operations in the past.

Third party hosting services
As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which are predominant in the context of a weighing of interests, in a correct presentation of our offer. All data that is collected as part of the use of this website or in the forms provided in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained here. This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us inquiries using the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time.

5. ANALYSIS TOOLS & ADVERTISING
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are saved on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behaviour in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. 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 the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Use of Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We use the online advertising programme “Google AdWords” and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you click on an advertisement placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, contain no personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification.
If you visit certain Internet pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This means that there is no way that cookies can be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers.
The information that is obtained using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Here, customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
Use of the remarketing or “similar target groups” function of Google Inc.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection against data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents your data from being recorded on future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
Order data processing
We have concluded a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
