1) Handling of Personal Data

Basically, you may visit our website without us collecting any personal data from you. Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily disclose such data for the purpose of concluding a contract or opening a customer account. Without your explicit consent, this data is merely used for contract performance and processing your inquiries. Upon complete fulfilment of the contract and complete payment of the purchase price your data will be stored with care for tax and commercial law retention periods, to be deleted upon expiry of these periods.

Furthermore, personal data is collected, if you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter. We use this data for our own advertising purposes in terms of our e-mail newsletter provided you have explicitly consented to it.

You may unsubscribe from our Newsletter at any time using the respective link in the Newsletter or by sending us a message. Your e-mail address will be deleted immediately after unsubscribing.

2) Transfer of Personal Data

2.1 For the purpose of contract fulfillment, personal data collected by us is transferred to the transport company commissioned with the delivery, provided this is required for delivering the goods.

2.2 If paying per PayPal, credit card via PayPal, direct debit per PayPal or, if offered, purchasing on account via PayPal, we transfer your payment data to PayPal (Europe) S.a. r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as "PayPal") for the purpose of payment processing. PayPal reserves itself the exclusion of certain payment methods such as credit card via PayPal, direct debit per PayPal or, if offered, purchasing on account, after the result of a credit investigation. PayPal uses the result of the credit check with regard to the statistical probability of failure for the purpose of deciding whether to offer the corresponding payment method. The credit check may contain probability values (so called score values). Insofar as score values are included in the credit report, they are based on scientifically recognized, mathematical-statistical procedures. Among other data, address data are taken into account when calculating the score values.
