Storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. We only store access data in so-called server log files, such as the name of the requested file, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. These data are evaluated exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer, and do not allow us to draw any conclusions about you.

In order to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, ie after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit it (persistent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and individually decide on their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general. Failure to accept cookies may limit the functionality of our website
Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analytics
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (www.google.com). Google (Universal) Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
As an alternative to the browser plug-in, you can click on this link to prevent the collection by Google Analytics on this website in the future. An opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies, you must click the link again.
Use of Facebook plugins
Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network Facebook. This service is offered by the company Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). An overview of Facebook’s plugins and their looks can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the respective plugin is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Facebook or are currently not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the US and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, it can immediately assign the visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Like” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be posted on Facebook and displayed there to your contacts.
If you do not want Facebook to directly assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can completely prevent the loading of Facebook plugins even with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the “Facebook Blocker” (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/) or the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).

You have the right to free information on the data stored about us as well as a right to correct, block or delete this data. For questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data, information, correction, blocking or deletion of data and revocation of granted consent or objection to a particular use of data, please contact us directly via the contact details in our imprint.
What is SSL encryption?
SSL is the abbreviation for Secure Socket Layer. Developed by the companies Netscape and RSA Data Security, the SSL protocol is designed to ensure that sensitive data is encrypted when surfing the Internet, such as credit card information during online shopping. This is to prevent third-party users from being able to read or manipulate the data during transmission. In addition, this encryption method ensures the identity of a website.
A well-functioning SSL encryption is characterized by the fact that the data sent are absolutely secure. The content of the messages is only sent over the Internet in encrypted form. In addition, effective algorithms validate the data for completeness and condition before they reach the recipient. SSL is now the standard for browser encryption.
Is it safe to pay in the online shop?
The security of your data is our top priority. Your payment data will only be used to process the payment for the goods ordered from us. For the transmission of personal data in the ordering process and at the registration, the so-called SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) is used.
