Customer Contact

We’re very glad to assist you during our business hours on our contact page.

The European Commission offers the possibility for online settlement of disputes on their online platform. 
The platform can be found at: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/ 

We do not agree and are not obliged to solve disputes with consumers via a Consumer Arbitration Service.

If the content or design of this site violates rights of third parties or statutory provisions, we ask for a corresponding message without cost note, citing § 8 (4) UWG. The elimination of an infringement of intellectual property rights by these owners may not take place without our consent. We guarantee that the rightly disputed passages will be removed immediately and permanently, without you having to call in a lawyer. An immediate warning is a violation of § 13 Abs. 5 UWG (pursuit of non-objective goals as a dominant motive for initiating proceedings – especially the intention to achieve costs as the actual driving force) as well as a breach of the duty to mitigate. We will completely reject any expenses you make without first contacting us and may even file a counterclaim for violation of the aforementioned stipulations.

Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR

Some data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. Revocation of your consent is possible at any time. An informal e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

As affected person, you have a right of appeal to the competent authority in the event of a data protection breach. The competent supervisory authorities are the privacy and data protection representatives of the federal state in which our company’s registered office is located. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The provision shall be in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically possible.

Based on the applicable legal regulations, you have the right for free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, its recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. In this regard and also for further questions regarding personal data in general, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed on our website.

Personal data will only be transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract. Third parties can be, for example, payment service providers or logistics companies. Any further transfer of data shall not occur or shall only occur if you have expressly consented to the transfer.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the formation of a contract or pre-contractual steps.

We use external payment service providers with which platforms users can make payment transactions:

The data processed by the payment service providers includes inventory data such as the name and the address, bank details, passwords, TANs and checksums aswell as the contract details and recipient-related information. The information is required to complete the transactions. However, the data entered is only processed by the payment service providers and stored there. We do not receive any account or credit card related information, only a confirmation if the payment was made. Under certain circumstances, the data may be transmitted by the payment service providers to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness. In this regard, we refer to the general terms and conditions and data protection information of the payment service providers.

The terms and conditions and the data protection notices of the respective payment service providers apply to the payment transactions. We also refer to the general terms of the payment service providers for further information and assertion of revocation, information and other data subject rights.

Our website uses Google AdWords offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.

AdWords is an online advertising platform. As part of our online advertising, we work with conversion tracking. After clicking on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device by your web browser. Google AdWords cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify users. The cookie allows Google and us to detect if you have clicked on an ad and have been redirected to our website.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a personal cookie. The cookies are not trackable via AdWords customers’ websites. Conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers learn how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with the conversion tracking tag. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that enables identification of users. If you do not wish to be tracked, you can revoke your consent. Here, the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. This way there won’t be any statistical recordings.

The storage of “conversion cookies” is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
As the website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and our advertising.
For details about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, please refer to Google’s privacy policy:

https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or disable the setting of cookies. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR is our legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the formation of a contract – like in the case of processing data necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service – the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for example for the fulfillment of tax obligations,
the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect essential interests of a natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor would be injured in our company and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other essential information had to be forwarded to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected person are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it’s considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the affected person is a customer (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. Stored data are deleted by us once the legal or contractual storage term has expired or if we no longer need the data.
