Data protection policy
The topics of data protection and data security often cause uncertainty and questions about the use of online offers. We would like to counter this uncertainty with the highest possible degree of transparency and explain to you in detail here to what extent and for what purpose data is collected when using our website, how it is used and where it is at best passed on. At the same time, we inform you about the rights you have towards us regarding the use of your data.
Personal data is information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. Personal data includes, for example, your name, your address, your telephone number and your birthday. Information that cannot be directly or indirectly associated with you, such as the number of users of a page or the popularity of individual websites, is not personal data. They are collected and used by us to optimize our websites, e.g. to increase web-user-friendliness.

Use of Google Analytics
Use of social plugins
Our website uses so-called social plugins from third party providers, e.g. Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The plugins are marked with the provider’s logo and can be like buttons or a Google+ button or Twitter button, for example. When you access a website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the provider’s computers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from the offering site to your browser and integrated into the website. By integrating the plugins, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our website. If you are registered and logged in with the provider at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your profile. If you interact with the plugins (e.g. click on the Like button or make a comment), the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the provider and stored there. Even if you have logged out, the providers collect anonymous data via the social plugins and set a corresponding cookie. This data can be assigned to your profile, provided you log in to the provider at a later point in time. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing of your data by the provider as well as your relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the providers.

Use of customer data
If you have placed orders with us via an active customer account, we process these specific data records to enrich the personalised advertising. We only use the data set for the design of dynamic content and the creation of target group segments. For example, to display brand-specific special offers or interest-driven advertising (banner, website or newsletter). In addition, we create impersonal target group segments for all customer data. This usually includes an evaluation of age groups, or the analysis of specific purchasing behaviour. At no time will personal data be enriched or used outside your customer account. The customer account is protected against external access via our IT system landscape. You can also exclude your own data record from these evaluations at any time. To do so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
