1. Collection of data
We collect certain general data and information each time the website is accessed. This data and information are stored in the server’s log files. The following data may be collected:
- The type of browser used and its version;
- The operating system used by the accessing system;
- The website from which an accessing system reaches our website (referrer);
- Date and time of access; and
- the internet protocol address (IP address).
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject, but use it primarily to deliver the content of our website correctly, to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it.
We evaluate this data and information primarily in order to increase data protection and data security and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.
2. Legal basis for the provision of personal data
The provision of personal data is partly required by law or may result from contractual regulations. It may be necessary for you to provide us with personal data in order to conclude a contract via our webshop.
3. E-mail-newsletter and newsletter-tracking
Our website offers the possibility to subscribe to a newsletter. The personal data to be transmitted when ordering this newsletter is shown in the input mask used for this purpose. The newsletter can only be ordered if all fields and questions in the input mask are filled in. We collect the relevant data and information in order to prevent misuse.
When ordering a newsletter for the first time, we may request confirmation from the customer using a link which will be sent to the E-mail address provided by the customer.
The personal data is only used to send our newsletter, but it is stored on our systems. They will not be passed on to any other third parties.
The customer can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time.
Our newsletters may contain so-called tracking pixels. These enable the statistical evaluation and optimisation of online marketing campaigns by determining whether an E-mail was opened by a person and whether the link contained in an E-mail was accessed.
4. Contact option via the website
Due to legal regulations, our website contains a contact form with which a visitor can contact us voluntarily. In doing so, personal data of the visitor must be entered via an input mask. We use and store this data to process the visitor’s enquiry and concerns. It is not passed on to third parties.
When visitors post comments on our website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string (this identifies the browser) to help detect spam.
After your comment has been approved, your profile picture is publicly visible in the context of your comment.
When you register on this website, we will set a so-called cookie. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. This cookie does not contain any personal data.
Some cookies expire at the end of the browser session, others remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognise you next time you visit the website. You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude their acceptance generally or on a case-by-case basis. If cookies are rejected or restricted, the functionality of our website may be limited.
7. Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website. The corresponding data and information are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If you would like to prevent data processing by Google, you can download and install a plug-in into your browser at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
8. Use of social plug-ins from Facebook or other social networks
Social plug-ins from Facebook or other social networks such as Twitter, Instagram, etc. may be used on our website. These services are offered by the respective providers such as Facebook etc. These providers usually have their legal seat in the United States (USA).
To increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, we will generally integrate the plug-ins into our website using the two-click solution. This integration ensures that no connection is established yet with the corresponding social network when you call up our website. Only when you click on or activate the plug-in and thus give your permission for data transmission, does your browser establish a direct connection to the servers of Facebook or the other social networks.
By clicking on a plug-in and interacting with it (e.g. selecting the “Like” button), Facebook or another corresponding social network receives information about your behaviour on the internet, even if you do not have a profile on Facebook or a social network or if you are not currently logged in there. This information may also be displayed or published on pages of Facebook or other social networks.
9. Embedded videos and images from external websites, media
Our pages may contain embedded content from YouTube, Instagram or similar services and providers or from other websites. In principle, no personal data is transmitted when you call up the content, with the exception of your IP address. Cookies may then be collected. The IP address is forwarded to Google, Instagram or other providers based in the USA or in another state outside Switzerland or the European Union.
Copyrights or other intellectual property rights in embedded content are reserved in all cases. In particular, the embedding of content on this website does not imply that copyrights or other intellectual property rights are transferred to the visitor.
If you are a registered user and upload photos to this website, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this website could download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.
10. Special provisions for the webshop (incl. creditworthiness checks, copyrights to our products, etc.)
For orders via our webshop, you must fill in an input mask with which we collect all the necessary information to process your order and to fulfil it in accordance with the contract. During the ordering process, data may also be collected, processed and stored in accordance with section 1 above.
Personal data is also collected when orders are placed via our webshop in order to be able to fulfil legal obligations arising from value-added tax and value-added tax legislation.
Furthermore, in the case of contracts concluded via our webshop, we must retain and store your personal data for a longer period of time, generally for 10 years, due to statutory retention obligations.
Unless otherwise agreed, no transfer of copyrights or other intellectual property rights shall take place with the fulfilment of an order via our webshop. These shall remain with us without reservation.
If the fulfilment and execution of an order via the webshop requires the disclosure of personal data to third parties, e.g. to tax authorities, to postal or courier services for the delivery of the ordered goods, to payment service providers such as Stripe, Paypal, credit card organisations such as VISA or Mastercard, etc., the visitor or orderer expressly agrees to the disclosure of his/her personal data when placing the order. If we make advance payments, e.g. in the case of purchase on account, we reserve the right to demand an identity check or credit check or to obtain such from third parties in order to protect our legitimate interests. An identity check may include the delivery of a copy of your passport or other identification document or the delivery of a copy of the invoice from your telephone service provider or your electricity or gas supplier.
