  • External service providers or other contractors.
  • Other external bodies in so far as the data subject has given his consent or a transmission is permitted due to a prevailing interest.

Specific information about the website

Use of a newsletter

When registering for our newsletter, you provide us with your email address and, on an optional basis, other information. We use these data solely for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. We retain the data that you disclose in your newsletter application until you cancel your subscription to our newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time via the link in the newsletter intended for this purpose, or by sending us the appropriate notification. By unsubscribing, you revoke the use of your email address.

We also use your email address, which we receive in connection with the sale of a product or service, exclusively for direct advertising in the form of our newsletter for products or services that we sell that are similar to the ones you ordered, provided that you have not objected to having your email used in this way. You may object to the use of your email address at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. Your objection (and thus the cancellation of our newsletter) can be communicated by sending the appropriate message to our email address.

Orders via our online store - data processing for order processing via "Shopify"

For the processing of orders via our online store, the processing of personal data (name, address, contact and payment data) is required. We process this data exclusively for processing the order.

For the operation of our online store, we use Shopify, a service of Shopify Inc, 126 York Street, Suite 200, Ottawa, ON, Canada, K1N 5T5. Shopify provides an e-commerce platform through which we offer our products for sale. The data provided as part of the ordering process is stored on a Shopify server in the USA. More detailed information can be found in Shopify's privacy policy at
The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). With full completion of the contract and full payment of the purchase price, your data will be blocked for further use and, unless legal requirements dictate longer storage, deleted. 


Further information and contacts

In addition, you may invoke your rights to correction or deletion at any time, to restrict processing, to object to processing, and to data portability. Here you will find the option to contact us by email or letter. You also have the right to contact the data protection supervisory authority for complaints.
