Collection of personal data when visiting the Site
When you visit the Site, if you do not order anything or are not forwarding information to us by another means, we shall only collect the personal data which your browser transmits to our server.
We automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
– “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
– “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
– “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
The Use Of Social Plugins
On the SITE we use a so-called “social plugin” of Grow Social Pro by Mediavine. Grow Social Pro does not collect, store, or distribute any user information.
A social network is an internet-based social meeting point that enables users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space.
After activating the plugin, a direct connection to the system of the respective social plugin provider is established via your Internet browser. The content of the social plugin is then transmitted directly to your Internet browser and integrated into our website. At the same time, the social plugin transmits the information to the respective social plugin provider that you have called the corresponding page of our Internet presence. This applies regardless of whether you have created a profile with the social plugin provider or logged in or then actively use a social plugin (e. g. by clicking the “I like” button or by making a comment).
With the active use of a social plugin, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your Internet browser to the respective social plugin provider and stored there. As soon as you are logged in at the same time at one of the social plugin providers, they can assign your visit to our website to your account created there. We have no influence on the type and extent of the data collected and transmitted. Details on the scope and purpose of data collection, processing, and use can be found in the data protection information of the social plug-in providers. There you can see your rights and setting options to protect your privacy.
If you do not agree to a social plugin provider assigning the data collected through our website to your account, we would ask you to log out of your account with the respective social plugin provider before activating the social plugin. If you do not want the social plugin providers to receive, save and use data at all, please do not use or click on the respective social plugins.
When you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.”
Third-Party Payment Processor
In addition to credit card payments, we offer other payment methods in order for you to complete your purchase, using different payment service providers with whom we have concluded a data processing agreement. Depending on which payment method you choose, different data will be transmitted to the respective payment service provider.
If you pay for your purchase with PayPal, your personal data will be transmitted to PayPal. If you have not yet opened a PayPal account, you will be asked to do so by PayPal in the course of the payment process. When you use or open a PayPal account, your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address must be transmitted to PayPal.
If you pay with Klarna you will provide your information directly to them in order to process your application for a credit line.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
If you contact us by email, phone, or using our contact form, we will store the information you provide us with (your name and email address or telephone number, address, etc) to respond to your query. We will erase the data we collected on this basis when it is no longer required or we will restrict the processing where we have to comply with statutory retention requirements.

Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.
Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.
The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:

This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website. Mediavine Partners may also create unique IDs to create audience segments, which are used to provide targeted advertising.
