Data integrity

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. However, we use coding systems to indicate that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

To secure your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures which we constantly adapt to current technical standards. 

Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are regularly and carefully secured.

In principle, we only use your personal data within our company.

If and insofar as we involve third parties within the scope of the fulfilment of contracts, they only receive personal data to the extent to which the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.

In this junction we use external service providers like Logistic services, legal issues and accountancy.

Here we signed separate agreements to secure your personal data.  In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("order processing"), we contractually oblige contractors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.

Data transmission to places or persons outside the EU outside the cases mentioned in this declaration does not take place and is not planned.
