4 Data security
We make every effort to ensure the security of your data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities. Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures which we constantly adapt to the state of the art.
Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are regularly and carefully secured.
5 Automated decision making
An automated decision making based on the collected personal data does not take place.
6 Disclosure of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries
In principle, we only use your personal data within our company.
If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (e.g. logistics service providers), these personal data are only received to the extent to which the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing (“order processing”), we contractually oblige contractors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
Data transmission to places or persons outside the EU does not take place and is not planned.
