With the help of the Pinterest tag, Pinterest is able to derive a target group for the presentation of ads (what are known as “Promoted Pins”) from visitors to our website.
Accordingly, we use the Pinterest Tag to display the Promoted Pins only to those Pinterest users who have shown an interest in our website. With the help of the Pinterest Tag, we also want to make sure that our Promoted Pins match the potential interest of the users and do not annoy them.

DATA COLLECTION AND USE FOR CONTRACT PROCESSING AND WHEN OPENING A CUSTOMER ACCOUNT
If you order as a guest, we will store your data for the purpose of fulfilling the contract and delete it as soon as we are no longer legally obliged to store it, i.e. after completion of the contract and expiration of all tax and commercial storage obligations. Mandatory information (required for the processing of the contracts) is marked separately as such; entering any further information is voluntary. When you create a customer account, the data you enter there will be stored in such a way that it can be removed; you can always delete the account in the customer area.
As part of the ordering process and to create a customer account, we collect, process, store, and use the following personal data provided by you: salutation, name, billing address, delivery address, date of birth, email address, telephone number; depending on the type of payment method selected: bank details, credit card data (name of card-holder, credit card number, expiration date and card verification number).
For the purpose of delivering your order, we will pass on your name and delivery address to an authorized shipping company. To process the payment, we pass on the following data to the respective payment service provider:
• Paypal: customer ID in the shop, order number, name of the customer, address of the customer, total amount

The legal basis for the collection, processing, and transmission of data for orders in the online shop is Art. 6(1)(1)(b) of the GDPR. The contract cannot be executed without the processing of the data marked as mandatory.
PRODUCT INFORMATION/EMAIL ADVERTISING
As our customer, if you have ordered our products before, you will regularly receive product information from us by email – regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter. Our goal here is to send you information about products from our range that may interest you based on your recent purchases from us. If you no longer wish to receive product information or any (advertising) messages from us, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. To do this, simply send a message in written form (e.g. email, fax, letter) to the contact above. You will of course also find an unsubscribe link in every email from us.
The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) of the GDPR, as it is in our legitimate interest to provide specific information to existing customers.
SUBSCRIBE TO THE EMAIL NEWSLETTER
You can give your consent to subscribe to our newsletter, in which we keep you informed about our current interesting offers. For registration to our newsletter, we use what is known as a double-opt-in procedure. In other words, after you register, we will send you an email to the address you provided, in which you will be asked to confirm that you actually wish to receive the newsletter. In addition, we will store your IP address and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this is to be able to prove that you have registered and, if necessary, to investigate any potential misuse of your personal data.
Only your email address is required in order for us to send the newsletter. The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to address you more personally. After you submit your confirmation, we will save your email address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(1)(a) of the GDPR. 4
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter without incurring any costs other than the message transmission costs according to the basic rates. To do this, simply send a message of cancellation in written form (e.g. email, fax, letter) to the contact above. You will of course also find an unsubscribe link in every email from us.
Your payment data is encrypted during the ordering process and transmitted over the Internet.
