External service providers and partner companies such as online payment providers or the shipping company commissioned with the delivery will only receive your data if this is necessary for processing your order. In these cases, however, the amount of data transmitted is limited to the minimum required. As far as our service providers come in contact with your personal data, we ensure that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws in the same way. Please also note the respective privacy policy of the provider.

We have taken extensive technical and operational safeguards to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS AND CONVERSION TRACKING
This website uses Google Analytics. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will evaluate your use of the website to compile reports on website activity and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. Since the vote of the Hamburg commissioner for data protection and freedom of information with Google on the basis of the decision of the Dusseldorf circle for the privacy-compliant design of analysis methods for measuring range in Internet offers a privacy-compliant and complaint-free use of Google Analytics is possible under certain conditions . Of course, we adhere to these requirements. In particular, we point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp ();" in order to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). Your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
