Furthermore, we want you to know what kind of information we collect and for what purposes we use it.

The data will be subjected to appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that the privacy policies are met by us and our external service providers.

Personal data is information about your identity. It includes information like names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses.

While using our website, it is not necessary to disclose any personal data. However, in certain cases we need to collect your name and address as well as other details to be able to provide the services requested.

The same applies for example, to shipping information and orders or to answer individual questions.

Where necessary, we will inform you appropriately.

Furthermore, we only store and process data which you voluntarily submit or data which is automatically gathered while visiting our website (e.g. your IP address and the names of the web pages you visited, your browser type and operating system, the date and time of your visit to our website, the search engine you used, and the names of downloaded files).

If you intend to make use of our services, we usually only collect data which is needed to provide the service. Any request for further data is voluntary. Personal data will only be processed to perform the service requested and to protect our own business interests.

Purpose of collecting personal data

The information you provide is only used to fulfill your specific requests or to give you access to certain information or offers. In order to maintain our customer relationships, it may also be necessary for us or for a service provider appointed by us to use personal data to inform you about product offers or to conduct online surveys in order to better fulfill our customers' requests.

If you choose not to have your personal data used to support our customer relationship (in particular for direct marketing or market research), we will respect your choice. We will not sell personal data to third parties nor market it in any other form.

Purpose-related use

We will only collect, process and use personal data provided by you online only for the purposes stated to you. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your permission.

The collection of personal data and the transmission of such data to state institutions and authorities that are entitled to receive such information shall only be carried out within the framework of relevant legislation, or when we are obligated to do so under the terms of a court judgment.
