Personal data is individual information about the personal or material circumstances of a natural person. This includes information, such as your IP address, real name, address, telephone number and date of birth. Information that cannot be directly attributed to your identity—e.g., your favorite Internet website or the number of users of a website—is not personal data.

When you visit the website of the Company, we will temporarily process and save various data. This includes the connection data of the requesting computer, the Internet pages you open on our website and the date and the duration of your visit. In addition, we will collect the identifying data of your Internet browser and of your operating system and the website from which you navigated to our website. Personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address will only be collected if it is provided by you voluntarily as part of a registration, survey or other request for information.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data for the above-stated purposes is Art. 6(1) Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation, if we concluded a contract with you. If the Company did not conclude a contract with you, the legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data for the above-stated purposes is Art. 6(1) Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation. We perform our services as part of the fulfillment of contractual obligations. Without processing personal data, we cannot fulfill or execute the contract with you.
6. Transfer of Data
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties, unless doing so is required for contract execution or if you provided your express consent. For example, if you order products, we may forward your address and order data to your wholesale partner. If we commission external service providers, they will be carefully selected and committed to adherence to any applicable data protection regulations in accordance with Art. 28 of the General Data Protection Regulation. Under no circumstances will we transmit your personal to states outside of the European Union or European Economic Area (EEA).

The Company takes appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, changes, destruction and unauthorized access and unauthorized transfers. Our security measures are permanently improved in accordance with technological developments.
9. Data Storage Duration
We will save your data for as long as required for providing our online offer and related services or for as long as we have a legitimate interest in saving your data (e.g., we may still have a legitimate interest in postal marketing after the completion of the contract). Your data will be deleted after the legal or contractual storage periods expire (e.g., storage periods required under tax or commercial law). Data not subject to storage period requirements will be deleted after the stated purposes no longer apply.

You have the right to limit the processing of your personal data.
