    a) Session cookies

    We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies stored on your computer by your browser. These cookies process certain specific information about you, such as your browser, location data, or IP address.

    The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies are used to collect data to initiate or process contractual relationships.

    If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

    When you close your browser, these session cookies are deleted.

    b) Third-party cookies

However, the steps and measures required vary, depending on the browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your browser or contact its maker for support.

    Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, place, time, or frequency of your visits to our website will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function, whereby Google truncates the IP address within the EU or the EEA before it is transmitted to the US.

    The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of visits to our website and what visitors do once there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and of the internet in general.

    Google states that it will not connect your IP address to other data. In addition, Google provides further information with regard to its data protection practices at

    Klarna „CHECK-OUT“

    To process orders through our online shop, we use the payment service of Klarna Bank AB, Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden, hereinafter referred to as "Klarna", on our website.

    For this purpose, we have integrated Klarna's check-out into the final order page of our online shop.

In addition, we have a legitimate interest in offering effective and secure payment options, so that another legal basis ensues from Art. 6 para. 1 lit f.) GDPR. 

    By integrating Klarna, your internet browser loads the check-out page from a Klarna server. This means that the operating system you are using, type and version of your Internet browser, website from which the check-out has been requested, date and time of the call and the IP address are sent to Klarna - even without your interaction with the check-out page.

    As soon as you complete the order in our online shop, the data you have entered in the input fields of the check-out page will be processed by Klarna at your own responsibility in order to process the payment.

    With the offered payment methods "PayPal" and "Advance Payment", processing without your further consent is limited to the transfer of the payment data to us or PayPal.

    With the offered payment methods of "Purchase on Account", "Hire Purchase", "Credit Card", "Direct Debit" or "Immediate Payment", the following personal data is processed by Klarna for the purpose of payment processing and for identity and credit checking:

    - Contact information such as names, addresses, date of birth, gender, email address, telephone number, mobile phone number, IP address, etc.

    - Information on the processing of the order, such as product type, product number, price, etc.

    - Payment information, such as debit and credit card data (card number, expiry date and CCV code), invoice data, account number, etc.

    If you choose the payment method "Purchase on Account" or "Hire Purchase", Klarna collects and uses personal data and information about your previous payment behaviour to decide whether you will be granted the desired payment method. In addition, probability values for your future payment behaviour (so-called scoring) are used. Scoring is calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical and statistical methods.
