Privacy and data protection
You are entitled to request information on, correct, block or delete your stored data at any time. Please refer to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us your request by post or fax.
We do not forward your personal data, including postal and e-mail addresses, to third parties without your explicit and revocable consent.
Exceptions to this are our service partners who require the transfer of data for the purpose of order processing (e.g. the carrier for delivery or the credit institute for payment processing).
In these cases, the data is restricted to only the necessary minimum. We employ technical and organizational security measures in order to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or accessby unauthorized third parties.
SSL data encryption
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and is an encryption method that has been employed on the world wide web for a long time. The entire data traffic between the customer’s browser and the server is encrypted such that no one can intercept the data.
Why do I need SSL?
We use the SSL method for processing orders. It gives you the security that your personal data – e.g. your home address or credit card number – cannot land in the wrong hands. The encryption is automatically activated, and the pages are immediately secured by SSL.
What should I do if SSL does not work?
There are cases in which SSL will not function, for example if you are behind a firewall (software presenting a kind of digital safety barrier), if the browser does not support SSL, or for some other technical problem.
In this case, you generally receive an error page drawing your attention to the problem. If this problem occurs on your computer, it is best to get in touch with a system administrator or with your Internet connection provider.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of your use of the website. As a rule, the information on your use of this website produced by the cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In case the IP-anonymisation on this website is activated, however, Google will first shorten your IP-address within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP-address is transmitted to the Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the provider of this website in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities and in order to perform further services for the website provider in connection with the use of the website and the internet. The IP-address transmitted by your browser for Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of the cookies with a corresponding setting of your browser software; we make you aware, however, that in this case you might not be able to use all the functions of this website fully. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection and processing by Google of the data referring to your use of the website (incl. your IP-address) which is produced by the cookie, by downloading and installing the browser-plugin available under the following link: (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
You can find further information about the above under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en and also under http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information about Google Analytics and data protection). We should like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();”, in order to guarantee an anonymous collection of IP-addresses (so-called IP-masking).
