Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest in our online shop. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following we inform you in detail about the handling of your personal data.

1. Access data and hosting

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Each time a website is accessed, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file containing for example the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data); each retrieval is documented.

These access data are evaluated solely for ensuring a trouble-free operation of the site and the improvement of our offer.

7. Use of social plugins from Pinterest only after activation by the user

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") from social networks. In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are integrated into the site by means of a so-called "2-click solution". This integration ensures that when you visit a page of our website that contains such plugins, no connection is yet established with the servers of the respective social network. Only when you activate the plugins, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly to your browser by the associated provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the corresponding provider or are currently not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider (possibly in the USA) and stored there. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" or the "Share" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information will also be posted on the social network and displayed there to your contacts. This serves the protection of our legitimate interests, which predominate in the context of a weighing up of interests, in the optimal marketing of our offer according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. For purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the provider as well as a contact option and your related rights and settings options to protect your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of the provider: https://about.pinterest.com/de/privacy-policy
