The provider expressly reserves the right to change, supplement, delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without separate announcement, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.


14. Change of contract terms

The provider will announce the changes or additions to the customer in text form at least four weeks before they become effective. If the customer does not agree with the changes or additions to the contract conditions, he can object to the changes with a notice period of one week at the time of the intended effectiveness of the changes or additions.

In this case, the parties commit to replacing the invalid provision with a valid provision that comes as close as possible to the economic purpose of the invalid provision.

• We only collect personal data from you and only to the extent that you provide it to us with your knowledge.
• We do not sell, lend or give away your personal data, and we only pass it on to third parties without your consent if we are legally entitled to do so, e.g., in the presence of a corresponding court order.
• We use state-of-the-art security technologies to protect your data from misuse.
• We aim to provide you with a secure, smooth, efficient, and personal user experience.


Data collection and storage
When you access our website, a connection is established with our server, and the access paths of the pages, the time of connection establishment, and your current IP address are recorded and stored to ward off disruptions and problems. During your visit to our website, data ("cookies") may be stored on your computer to facilitate your use of our services. We do not use this data to identify you or to contact you.
The emails sent to the system are stored on our server. The emails are not passed on to third parties. The emails are permanently stored by the provider for analysis and support purposes.


Personal data and their purposes of use
Personal data is collected and stored exclusively within the framework of legal regulations. We store and use your personal data (name, address, email address, bank details, etc.) to process your orders and any returns, for individual product support and, if desired, for our newsletters and product information. We do not pass on your personal data to third parties. Exceptions to this are our service partners who need your data to process orders, such as parcel and letter deliverers, letter printing companies, and our banks (for direct debit collection). Your data is only passed on to third parties if and to the extent that it is legally permissible or necessary to assert and enforce our rights and claims.


Use of Cookies and Similar Technologies
We use cookies and similar technologies to make our services more user-friendly and to offer our customers a more intuitive, tailored experience. Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites and are stored by a browser on the user's computer. A cookie primarily serves to store information about a user during or after his visit within an online offer. The stored information can include, for example, the language settings on a website, the login status, a shopping cart, or the point at which a video was watched. Some cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or language settings). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or display advertising. The following types of cookies and functions can be used: • Temporary cookies (also: session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed his browser. The purpose of these cookies is to identify your computer during a visit to our websites and to be able to determine the end of your visit. • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when the user visits a website again. Likewise, the interests of users used for reach measurement or marketing purposes can be stored in such a cookie. In addition, we also use permanent cookies to recognize returning visitors even after a long time and to be able to offer needs-based information about our products and services. • First-party cookies: First-party cookies are set by us. • Third-party cookies (also: third-party cookies): Third-party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (so-called third parties) to process user information. • Necessary (also: essential or absolutely necessary) cookies: Cookies can be absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (e.g., to save logins, a shopping cart, or other user inputs and to detect security risks). • Pixels: A pixel is a transparent graphic consisting of one pixel that is embedded in a website or message. It is mostly used to track whether the corresponding website or message has been accessed or opened. • Statistics, marketing, and personalization cookies: Furthermore, cookies are usually also used in the context of reach measurement and when the interests of a user or his behavior (e.g., viewing certain content, using functions, etc.) are stored on individual websites. Standard information is collected that your browser sends to our website, such as browser type, access times, or the address of the website that referred you to our websites. If you enter personal data on our websites and give us your explicit consent, we will use this data to provide you with targeted, personalized information about our products and services. Of course, you can also revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future, as described in more detail below. This procedure is also known as "tracking", i.e., tracking the potential interests of users. If we use cookies or "tracking" technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy or when obtaining consent.


Legal Basis
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is, if the user has given their consent, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. International Data Transfer Some technologies may also be integrated by companies based in the USA (e.g., Google). If these tools are active, personal data (e.g., your IP address) can be passed on to US servers of the respective companies, which is associated with corresponding risks, e.g., data access for control and surveillance purposes by US authorities. In such cases, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 44 GDPR and on the basis of suitable guarantees (e.g., encryption or standard contractual clauses in the respective contracts). Duration of Storage As a user, you have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may not be possible to use all functions of the website to their full extent. The technically necessary cookies are usually deleted when the browser is closed. Cookie Consent and Objection For technically unnecessary cookies, we ask for your consent before activation. Integration of Services and Content from Third Parties It can happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics from other websites, are integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We strive to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address e.g., for statistical purposes. Information Regarding Transparency and Your Rights Legal Bases for Processing Your Personal Data The legality of processing your personal data by our company is essentially based on the necessity to fulfill a contract (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR), as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. Our company is subject to legal obligations by which processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations. In addition, we rely on explicit consents (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR) to the processing of personal data concerning you, which you give us through voluntary declarations. If a balance of interests according to Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR results in our legitimate interests outweighing your rights to protect your personal data, processing can take place on this legal basis. A legitimate interest can, for example, lie in the purpose of direct advertising according to Recital 47 of the GDPR. Thus, our legitimate interest regularly outweighs the processing of your data for postal advertising and the processing of your data for a possibly necessary address comparison in advance. Right to Information, Correction, Deletion, Restriction of Processing You can request information about your data stored with us or correction, blocking, and deletion of your stored data and their processing at any time free of charge. If legal, contractual, or commercial or tax-related retention periods or other legally anchored reasons oppose deletion, your data will not be deleted, but will be blocked instead.


Right to Withdrawal
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you. We will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. This right includes your right to withdraw a data protection consent that you have given us for processing. Right to Data Portability You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us and whose processing is based on consent or a contract and is carried out using automated processes, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other people, you can arrange for the personal data to be transferred directly from us to another responsible party. Duration of Storage of Personal Data The deletion of the data takes place within the framework of the legal retention obligations and periods, taking into account the purpose limitation. The commercial or tax-effective data of a completed financial year are deleted in accordance with legal regulations after ten or seven years, unless longer retention periods are prescribed or necessary for legitimate reasons. Shorter deletion periods are applied in special areas (e.g., in the case of longer inactivity on your part). If data are not affected by this, they are deleted when the aforementioned purposes cease to exist. Right to Complain to a Supervisory Authority If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you violates applicable data protection law, you can exercise the right to complain to a supervisory authority. Necessity of Collecting Your Personal Data We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly legally required (e.g., tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g., information about the contract partner). Usually, it is necessary for a contract conclusion that you provide us with personal data, which is subsequently processed by us. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with you could not be concluded.


Content of the Online Offer The author assumes no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author, which refer to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are generally excluded, unless there is evidence of intentional or gross negligence on the part of the author. All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement, delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without separate announcement, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.


References and Links
In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites ("hyperlinks") that are outside the author's area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only come into force if the author is aware of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the event of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were set, no illegal content was discernible on the pages to be linked. The author has no influence on the current and future design, content, or authorship of the linked/connected pages. Therefore, he hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked /connected pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author's own Internet offer, as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists, and all other forms of databases set up by the author, to which external writing access is possible. For illegal, incorrect, or incomplete content and especially for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, only the provider of the page to which reference was made is liable, not the one who merely refers to the respective publication via links.


Copyright and Trademark Law
The author strives to observe the copyrights of the used images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts in all publications, to use images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts created by him, or to resort to license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts. All brands and trademarks mentioned within the Internet offer and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. Just because of the mere mention is not to conclude that trademarks are not protected by rights of third parties! The copyright for published objects created by the author remains solely with the author of the pages. A reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.


Data Protection
If there is the possibility within the internet offer to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses), the disclosure of this data by the user is expressly voluntary. The use and payment of all offered services is - as far as technically possible and reasonable - also allowed without providing such data or by providing anonymized data or a pseudonym. The use of contact data published in the imprint or comparable information such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and email addresses by third parties for sending unsolicited information is not permitted. Legal action against the senders of so-called spam mails in violation of this prohibition is expressly reserved.


Legal Validity
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication from which you were referred to this page. If sections or individual terms of this statement are not legal or correct, the content or validity of the other parts remain uninfluenced by this fact.
