What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.
Personal Data (during check-out process)
• Cookies and Usage Data
If you buy/attempt to buy a product through our website (i.e. click the confirm order button), we will collect and store your contact data (name, address, and email address), as well as which payment method you have chosen in order to be able to fulfil our obligations under the resulting business relationship. If you provide them, we will use your email address to send you your order updates and possibly email you if the payment was not successful.
Shopping Cart and Online Ordering
If you would like to place an order in our online store, you can choose whether you would like to enter the data necessary for your order only once for this order, or whether you would like to create a customer account which stores your data for later additional purchases. When you do not create a customer account, we will store your data for the purpose of fulfilling the contract and then delete it as soon as we are no longer legally required to store it. Required fields that are necessary to fulfill the contract are specially marked; any additional information is voluntary. Upon creation of an account under “My Account”, the data entered by you there will be stored with the ability to be revoked later.
We will use the data you enter to fulfill your order. For this purpose, we will give your address data and possibly payment information to companies that support us in this area. We will delete this data after fulfillment of the contract and the tax and commercial storage periods.
In order to prevent unauthorised third party access to your personal data, in particular financial data, the ordering process is encrypted using SSL technology.

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you clicked on an ad delivered by Google on our website, a cookie is placed on your computer by Google AdWords. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed when a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google. These cookies expire within 30 days and are not personally-identifiable. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will be able to recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page. Every Google AdWords customer gets a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked across sites by AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in for conversion tracking. Customers are given an overall number of users who have clicked on their ad and proceeded to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that can personally identify users.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can take the necessary steps to block a cookie – such as through a browser setting, which generally disables cookies from being stored, or adjust your browser settings in such a way that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked. Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish for measurement data to be recorded. If you delete all of your cookies, you must reset the opt-out cookie once again. You can also adjust your Google Ads settings here: https://adssettings.google.com/
