Data analysis tools and third-party tools
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of sensitive content such as orders and requests that you might send to us, our website uses SSL and TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by looking at the address bar of your internet browser. If the start of the address changes from “http: //” to “https: //” or if you can see a lock symbol before the web address, then then the connection is secure. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by any third party.
Most of the cookies we use are what are known as “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit to our website. Other cookies will remain stored on your device until you delate them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.

Our web pages use features of Google+ to collect and share information. This service is provided by: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Use the Google+ button to post and share information online. The Google + button will provide you and other users with personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the online content that you +1 and information about the page you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1s may appear alongside your profile name and photo in different Google tools. For example, they may appear in your search results or on your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and online advertisements.
Google records information about your + 1 activity in order to improve its services to you and other users. To use the Google + button, you need a Google profile that must contain at least a profile name. This name will be used for Google’s tools and services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other information that might identify you.

Opposing data collection
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require an email address for you. We also need other information that will allow us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. More data will not be collected, unless you agree to it. We will use this data exclusively for the delivery of our newsletter and other requested information. We will not pass this data on to any third parties.
The processing of any data entered into the newsletter registration form is only done with your explicit consent (as per Article 6 (1) of DSVGO). Consent to the storage of any data, including your email address, can be withdrawn at any time. This can be done through the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of any completed data processing operations will be unaffected by the withdrawal of consent.
The data shared with us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be saved by us until you unsubscribe. If you do unsubscribe from the newsletter, this data will be deleted. Data that has been stored for other reasons (for example, email addresses for the members’ area) will not be affected.
MailChimp helps us target and analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This lets us see if a newsletter message has been opened. It also lets us see which links have been clicked on. Additionally, some technical information is collected (for example, when the newsletter was read and the IP address, browser type and operating system of the recipient). This data cannot be connected to a particular newsletter recipient; it is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of a newsletter campaign. The results of such analysis can be used to better tailor the contents of our newsletter to the interests of the recipients.
If you do not agree to MailChimp analysing this data, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter. To make this easy for you, we provide an unsubscribe link in every newsletter and message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on our website. Any data is processed with your consent (as per Article 6 (1a) of GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of any data already processed will be unaffected by the withdrawal of consent.
