Recording, processing and use of personal data
You can visit our site without giving any personal data. We store access data entirely anonymously under e.g. the page you land on when you visit our site or the file you request. This information is evaluated solely to improve our offer and cannot be traced back to you personally in any way.

We record personal data only in so far as you provide it voluntarily when you order goods or open a customer account. We use the information you give us without specific agreement to its use for other purposes, solely for the purpose of completing and processing your order. Once the contractual obligations have been completely discharged on our side, and the full price has been paid, your details are blocked for further use, and deleted after the elapse of the period they are required to be kept for tax and other legal reasons, unless you have expressly indicated your willingness for us to use your details for other purposes.
