2. Use of own cookies

When calling up certain pages, a so-called “session cookie” is set. This is a small text file, which is automatically deleted by your computer at the end of the browser session. This file serves only for the purpose of being able to use certain applications. You can change the settings on most web browsers so that your browser does not accept new cookies, or you can delete received cookies. Exactly how this works in practice for your browser can usually be found out via its help function.

3. Server log files

Like with any connection to a web server, the server of our web hosting provider, Novatrend, Switzerland, logs and stores certain technical data. This data includes the IP address and operating system of your device, the data, the time of access, the type of browser and the browser request, including the origin of the request (referrer). This is necessary for technical reasons in order to make our website available to you. Our web hosting provider protects this data using technical and organisational measures against unauthorised access and does not pass it on to third parties. To the extent that we process personal data, we do so because of our interest in providing you with the best possible user experience and ensuring the security and stability of our systems.

5. Newsletter

If you have registered for our newsletter with your email address, we will store and use your email address for sending you our newsletter with information and advertising about us until you have unsubscribed from our newsletter.

For our newsletter service, we use the newsletter service “MailChimp”, from Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000 Atlanta, GA 30308.

If you enter your email address so as to receive the newsletter, it will first be stored by MailChimp for the purpose of sending the owner an email in which he/she can confirm the subscription to the newsletter (“double-opt-in”). After such confirmation, the email address will be permanently stored at MailChimp until you have unsubscribed from receiving the newsletter or until it is deleted by us. MailChimp stores the date of registration and the IP address from which the registration was made. Your IP address is not used for any other purpose.

Please note that the data collected and used by MailChimp is stored and processed on computers in the United States. By agreeing to receive our newsletter, you declare that you consent to this. In addition, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp based on the so-called EU standard contractual clauses. Your email address will not be passed on to third parties for any other reason.

You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. Each of our newsletter emails contains an unsubscribe link. You may also revoke your consent to us using your email address at any time, to take effect going forward. Please use the contact options below for this.

6. Webshop

We would like to point out that for the purpose of simplifying the purchasing process and for subsequent contract processing, the webshop operator stores the IP data of the connection owner in the form of cookies, as well as the buyer’s name, address and payment method.

In addition, the following data is also stored by us for the purposes of contract processing: personal address data. The data you provide is necessary to fulfil the contract or implement pre-contractual measures. We cannot conclude the contract with you without this data. Data will not be transmitted to third parties, with the exception of transmitting credit card details to the processing bank institutions/payment service providers for the purpose of debiting the purchase price, to the transport company/shipping company commissioned by us to deliver the goods, and to our tax consultant to fulfil our tax obligations.

If the shopping process is aborted, the data stored by us will be deleted. In the event of a contract being concluded, all data from the contractual relationship will be stored until the expiry of the retention period under tax law (10 years). The name, address, goods purchased, and date of purchase data will also be stored until the expiry of product liability (10 years).
