We solely use the personal information you gave us to process your order.
All customer information will be stored and processed by us in compliance with relevant regulations of the German Federal Privacy Act and the Teleservices Data Protection Act – actually, it is NOT stored at the webserver, it is transmitted through the filled-out form to us and stored at a private PC, used to handle the order.
You have anytime to get freely informed about your stored data, as well as the deletion. This just needs your request by mail.
We don’t share your personal data including your home address and e-mail address without your explicit and revocable consent to third parties.
Excluded from this are our service partners, who need information for order processing, e.g. the German Post and the cooperating Post Company in your country.
In these cases, the amount of information is limited to the necessary minimum.
No data concerning you and your order(s) are used or passed for advertising purposes, market research, etc.

Our websites use social plugins of the providers listed below. The plugins can be recognized by the fact that they are marked with the appropriate logo.
These plug-ins may be used to send information, which may include personal information, to the service provider and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only through this activation of the plugin is the detection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We do not collect personally identifiable information by means of social plugins or their use.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
