The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.

Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies to optimize the ordering process. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user's computer system. When a user accesses a website, a cookie can be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is accessed again.

Such cookies are used, for example, to save your shopping carts or shopping lists to make your next order easier. After completing the order and when you visit our website again, you will be recognized as a customer using a corresponding cookie, making it easier for you to order again. Most browsers have functions with which the acceptance of cookies can be refused or with which the cookies accepted by the website can be deleted after you have finished visiting a website. Without cookies you can use certain functions of the website, e.g. B. do not use it in the online shop.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the accessing browser can be identified even after a page change.

The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

In this way, the following data can be transmitted as examples:

The user data collected in this way is pseudonymized using technical precautions. It is therefore no longer possible to assign the data to the accessing user. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users.

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For this it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page change.

– Date and time of your visit to our website
The information generated by this text file about the use of our website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. If this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google, Google will also pass on this information to these third parties. This usage is anonym or pseudomized. You can find more information about this directly on Google.

If you do not want Google Analytics to have insight into your usage behavior, as just described, you can integrate a deactivation add-on into your browser. Further information about this add-on can be found at:

Google AdWords

As an AdWords customer, we also use Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service provided by Google Inc. If you have reached our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords will place a cookie on your computer. These cookies are not used for personal identification and expire after 30 days. If you visit our site within 30 days and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that someone clicked on the ad and was redirected to our site. There is a different cookie for each AdWords customer. This means that cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected from the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. This allows AdWords customers to know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. You can deactivate the automatic setting of cookies via your browser settings if you do not want to take part in the tracking process. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “”.

We also use Google AdSense, a web advertising service from Google Inc., to display advertising (text ads, banners, etc.). Your browser may store a cookie sent by Google or a third party. The information stored in the cookie can be recorded, collected and evaluated by Google or third parties. To collect information, Google AdSense also uses small invisible graphics, which can be used to record, collect and evaluate simple actions such as visitor traffic on the website. The information and/or graphics generated by the cookie are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information obtained in this way is used by Google to evaluate your usage behavior with regard to AdSense advertisements. If necessary, Google will also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google does not associate the IP address of your computer with other data stored by Google. Here, too, you can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive and the graphics mentioned above from being displayed. As already described for the other cookies: To do this, you must deactivate the acceptance of cookies in your browser settings.

About the procedures in detail:

Credit check

As part of the upcoming purchase, a credit check will be carried out by Intrum AG. The purpose of this credit check is to avoid credit defaults and fraud and thus to prevent over-indebtedness or unjustified claims. The personal data required for this purpose such as name, address, date of birth, contact details (email, telephone number) will be transmitted to Intrum AG.
In addition, data is read from the Internet protocol (IP address, proxy server used, etc.) using a script and transmitted to Intrum AG. Information about which personal data Intrum AG has stored can be requested under Intrum information request.


On our website we offer users the opportunity to register by providing personal data. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and stored. The following data is collected as part of the registration process:
- First name
- Last name
– position
- Address
– Telephone number

The user’s consent is also obtained to process this data.

On the one hand, the user's registration is necessary for the provision of certain content and services, such as the processing of the order, on our website. In addition, the user's registration is required to fulfill a contract with the user or to carry out pre-contractual measures.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.

If the data collected is not used to conclude a contract with the user, this is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration on our website is canceled or changed.

With regard to data collected during the registration process to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, this is the case when the data is no longer required for the execution of the contract. Even after the contract has been concluded, there may be a need to store the contractual partner's personal data in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations, such as those arising from the limitation periods for warranty claims or from tax retention obligations.

As a user, you have the option to cancel your registration at any time. You can change the data stored about you at any time. To do this, simply log in to your customer account or contact customer service with your request.

If the data is necessary to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, early deletion of the data is only possible unless contractual or legal obligations prevent deletion.
