These data will exclusively be processed to improve our service; they will not allow any personal information to be inferred.
 
3. Personal data will only be collected if you voluntarily give us this information when you open an account, when you place an order or when you register for our newsletter. We will exclusively be using the data you provide us without your special permission to fulfil and handle your order. When the contract has been completely fulfilled and the purchase price completely paid, your data will be blocked for any further use, and after the retention periods relating to tax and commercial law have expired they will be deleted insofar as you have not explicitly consented to their further use.

Section 2 Use of Cookies

Several of the Cookies we use will be deleted after the browser session has ended, i.e. after your browser has been closed (so-called session Cookies). Other Cookies will remain on your terminal and enable us or our partner companies to recognise your browser during the next visit (persistent Cookies). You can set your browser so that you will be notified when Cookies are being deposited and decide on a case-by-case basis whether you want to accept them or exclude the acceptance of Cookies in certain cases or in general. A non-acceptance of our Cookies can lead to a restricted functionality of our Website.
 
Section 3 Transfer of personal data
1. Your data will be transferred to the mail-order firm commissioned to deliver your order insofar as this is necessary to deliver the merchandise. To handle the payments we will be passing on your payment data either to the bank commissioned to deal with the payment or the billing service selected in the order process.
 
Section 4 Google Analytics
