The webpages partially use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no damage on your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help to make our offer more user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser at your next visit. You can customise your browser in such a way that you are informed of the placement of cookies and permit cookies only in individual cases, block the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally as well as activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed.

Data processing for order processing
To process your order, we cooperate with transportation services providers, who support us totally or partially in the execution of concluded contracts. In accordance with the following information, certain personal data are transmitted to these service providers. As part of contract implementation, the personal data collected by us are forwarded to the transport company commissioned with the delivery, provided this is necessary for delivering the goods. We forward your payment data to the assigned financial institution during payment processing, provided this is necessary for payment processing. Here, the legal basis for forwarding the data is art. 6(1) lit. b GDPR.

When contacting the vendor (for instance via the contact form or email) the information of the user is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that there are follow-up questions. We shall not pass on these data without your consent.

With the newsletter offering, we inform you about us as a company and our offers. If you want to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information that will allow us to verify that you are the owner of the email address indicated and that you agree to receive the newsletter. We use the so-called double opt-in policy to ensure consensual newsletter mailing. Here, the potential recipient subscribes to a mailing list. The user then gets the opportunity to confirm the subscription in a legally watertight manner through a confirmation email. The address is only entered into the active mailing list if the confirmation takes place. We use these data exclusively for mailing the requested information and offers. Newsletter2Go is used as a newsletter software. Your data is thus transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is thus prohibited from selling your data and from using it for purposes other than the mailing of newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a certified German provider that was selected in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the German Data Protection Act. You can find further information here: 
The consent given for the storage of data, the email address and their use for mailing the newsletter can be withdrawn at any time, for instance via the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter or by sending an email to the addresses provided above. Data protection measures are always subject to technical improvements. For this reason, we ask that you obtain information about our data protection measures at regular intervals by viewing our
privacy statement.

Integration of third-party content
There are so-called hyperlinks to websites of other providers on our website. Clicking on these links takes you directly from our website to the websites of other providers. Among other things, you will recognise this through the change in URL. We can assume no responsibility for how these providers handle your data on these external websites, because we have no influence on how these providers handle your personal data. Please obtain information about this directly on the websites of each of the providers.

Transmission of personal data to third parties
Your personal data will be transmitted to third parties only in the instances permitted by law. Permitted cases exist, for instance, if the transmission is necessary for the purpose of contract implementation or you have consented to it. In individual cases, we may also be obligated to transmit your personal data to the law enforcement agencies, for instance. This is the case, for instance, if there is suspicion of a crime or misuse of our website. External service providers, whom we commission with data processing, have strict contractual obligations as set out in the German Data Protection Act and are not considered as third parties for data protection purposes.

Publication of job advertisements / online job applications
Your application data is collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of managing the application process. Should your application lead to you signing an employment contract, your transmitted data can be stored by us in your personnel file for the purpose of the typical organisational and administrative process while complying with the relevant legal provisions. If your job application is rejected, the data transmitted by you is automatically deleted two months after you have been notified of the rejection. This does not apply, if, due to statutory requirements (for instance, the burden of proof pursuant to the General Equal Treatment Act), longer storage is necessary or if you have expressly consented to longer storage in our database of interested persons.

Rights of Data Subjects
You have the right:
  • to request information about your personal data processed by us in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR. In particular, you may obtain information about the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to correction, deletion, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of appeal, the origin of your data, if this has not been collected by us, and requires the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, where appropriate, meaningful information about its detail;
  • to immediately request the correction of incorrect or complete personal data stored by us in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR;
  • to request the deletion of your personal data stored by us in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, unless the processing is necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
  • to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, as far as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you reject its deletion and we no longer need the data, but you need this to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR;
  • to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, current and machine-readable format or to request its transfer to another responsible person in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR;
  • to revoke your consent to us at any time in accordance with Art. 7 para 3 GDPR. As a result, we are no longer allowed to continue processing data based on this consent in the future and
  • to complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our headquarters.

Right to Object
If your personal data is processed based on legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR, you have the right in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR to object to the processing of your personal data if there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which we will implement without specifying a particular situation.

If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, simply send an email to Datenschutz(at)
