3. Collection and use of your data
The scope and type of the collection and use of your data differs depending upon whether you only visit our Internet presentation to collect information or if you utilize the services we offer:
a) Use for information purposes
To use our Internet presentation only for information purposes, it is fundamentally not necessary to list personal data.
In this case, in fact, we only collect and use your data that is automatically transmitted to us through your Internet browser, such as:
- date and time one of our Internet sites was called up,
- your browser type,
- the browser settings,
- the operating system used,
- the page you visited last,
- the transferred data amount and access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.), and
- your IP-address.
For a visit for informational purposes, we collect and use this data in a non-personal form. This is done to make the use of the Internet sites called up by you possible at all, for statistical purposes and in or-der to improve our Internet site. We only save the IP-address for the duration of your visit, no personal evaluation is performed.
b) Use of services
If you wish to take advantage of the services offered by us on our Internet presentation, such as the ordering of goods or a newsletter, on the other hand, it is necessary for you to provide additional data. This is the data that is necessary for the respective handling, such as your postal address when send-ing an order by mail.
You can voluntarily provide additional information. It is marked by us accordingly.
Your data is collected or used for the purpose of performing the service you desire, such as processing the order for goods or sending you the newsletter you desire and that is tailored to your needs.
Your data might be forwarded for the above-mentioned purpose to service providers who support us and whom we have naturally selected carefully. These can be technical service providers or service providers who assist us in shipping.
Otherwise, your data will only be forwarded to third parties if we are legally obligated to do so.
4. Data protection law consent
Beyond the handling of your desired services, we would like – naturally only if you explicitly consent to this separately – to offer then an Internet presentation that is tailored to your interests and occasionally send you interesting news and information about our company or our goods and potential services via mail or email (in the form of our newsletter) on the basis of your data and to use your data for the evaluation necessary for this as well as for market research purposes.
For this, it is necessary from a technical point of view for us to combine your accumulated and provided data into use profiles and to evaluate this for the aforementioned purposes. This is only performed internally and only for the aforementioned purposes.

In order to send the newsletter, we normally use the so-called Double Opt-In procedure, meaning that we will only send you the newsletter after you have first confirmed your registration by means of a link contained in the confirmation email sent to you for this purpose. With this, we want to ensure that only you can register for the newsletter as the owner of the listed email address.
