3. Legal basis for processing personal data

We process your personal data - such as your last name, first name, e-mail address, IP address, etc. - only if there is a legal basis for doing so. Three specific rules come into consideration here, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

a) You have given us your consent to the processing of your personal data for one or more purposes. See Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR. In this context, we will inform you in detail of the purposes of the processing and document your express consent.

b) Processing of your personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract with you. See Art. 6 (1) (1) (b) GDPR.

c) Processing of the personal data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests, except where such interests are overridden by your own or by your fundamental rights and freedoms. See Art 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR.

However, we will always inform you at the appropriate points of the legal basis on which your personal data is being processed.

4. Transfer of personal data

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those referenced below. We will only transfer your personal data to third parties if:

a) You have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR,

b) The transfer is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims, and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in your data not being transferred.

c) There is a legal obligation to transfer the data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (c) GDPR, and

d) this is legally permissible and necessary for managing contractual relationships with you, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (b) GDPR.

5. Storage period and erasure

We store all personal data which you provide to us only for as long as they are required for the purposes for which they were transferred to us, or for as long as required by law. Once the purpose has been achieved, or upon expiry of the statutory storage periods, we will erase or restrict the data.

6. SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to safeguard the transfer of confidential content, such as any requests you send to us as the operators of the site. An encrypted connection may be identified by the change in the address from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser’s address bar.
With SSL encryption activated, the data which you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

7. Collection and storage of personal data, their type and intended purpose

a) When visiting the website

When you access our website, information is automatically sent to our web server by the browser being used on your client device. This information is stored temporarily in what is known as a log file. The following information is recorded without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically erased:

  • The IP address of the computer making the request,
  • The date and time of access,
  • The name and URL of the requested file,
  • The website from which the site is accessed (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, if applicable, your computer’s operating system and the name of your access provider.

The above-referenced data are processed by us for the following purposes:

  • To ensure a smooth connection to the website,
  • To ensure that our website is convenient to use,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability, and
  • other administrative purposes.

Data which permit your identification as a person, such as the IP address, will be deleted after 7 days at the latest. Any data stored by us beyond this period will be pseudonymised, so that they can no longer be associated with you.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest derives from the data collection purposes referenced above. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of identifying you as a person.

b) Contractual relationship

aa) Formation of contract

In establishing the contractual relationship, and pursuant to Art. 6 (?) (1) (b) GDPR, the only mandatory data (indicated by an asterisk) is that personal data which is essential for the performance of the contract.
Any additional data you may choose to provide will only be processed on the basis of the consent you have given in accordance with Art. 6 (?) (1) (a) GDPR2. We use this optional data for the purpose of providing (and continuously improving) a customer-friendly service.
For the purpose of dispatching goods, we pass on the necessary data (name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, where these are required for shipping) to the appropriate shipping provider for notification/coordination of shipping and delivery of the goods.

bb) Customer account

You have the option of creating a customer account with us. For this purpose, in addition to your personal data for performance of the contract, we will also store and process any additional data you may choose to provide, as well as data on any previous purchases you have made from us. You may access this data at any time and thus obtain an overview of the purchases you have made from us. These data enable you to log in simply by using your login details when making your next purchase. They are also intended to help you manage your purchasing activities.

The legal basis derives from the consent given by you, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR.

You may amend or delete the data in your customer account at any time, or delete your account altogether. If you make use of this functionality, your customer account and all the data contained within it will be deleted immediately.

cc) Forwarding of data for dispatch purposes

For the purpose of dispatching goods, we pass on the necessary data (name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, where these are required for shipping) to the appropriate shipping provider for notification/coordination of shipping and delivery of the goods.
The legal basis for the transfer derives from Art. 6 (?) (1) (b) GDPR.

dd) Transfer of data when using online payment service providers

If, in the course of the order process, you opt for payment via one of the online service providers we offer,
your contact data will be transferred to that service provider in connection with the order in question.

Personal data transferred to the online payment service provider usually include first name, last name, address, telephone number, IP address, e-mail address, or other data required for order processing, as well as data relating to the order, such as the number of articles, part numbers, invoice amount, taxes as percentages, invoice information, etc.

This transfer is required to process your order using the payment method you selected, and in particular to confirm your identity and administer your payment, and for purposes of customer relations.

Please note, however: Personal data may also be passed on by the online payment service provider to other service providers, subcontractors or affiliated companies, where this is necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations arising from your order, or where the personal data are to be processed on its behalf.

Depending on the payment method selected via PayPal - for example, invoice or direct debit - the personal data transferred to PayPal are passed on by PayPal to credit agencies. These data are used to verify your identity and check your credit with regard to the order you have placed. You can find out which credit agencies are involved, and what data are generally collected, processed, stored and transferred by the provider in question in the respective providers’ privacy statements:
