The offer on our website may also include content, services and offerings of other providers that complement our offer. Examples of such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or graphic representations of third parties.
Calling up these services from third parties regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This makes it possible for these providers to use your user IP address and also to save it. We prefer only those third party providers who use the IP address solely to deliver content. However, we have no control over which third party providers may store the IP address. This storage can serve statistical purposes. Should we become aware of third-party storage practices, we will immediately notify our users of this fact.

Please make sure that the SSL encryption is activated on your part during activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: the display in your browser line changes from "http://" to "https://." SSL encrypted data is not readable by third parties. Submit your confidential information only with activated SSL encryption and contact us in case of doubt.

Data collection and processing are required to fulfil the contract and are based on Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR and/or Article 6 para. (1) (f) in the event of a legitimate interest on our part. This corresponds to a balancing of interests, which, however, does not restrict the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons.
Personal data is processed by us for the following purposes:

These include suppliers or shipping companies. Personal data may only be used by third parties for the aforementioned purposes. In addition, contract processors, in particular IT and back-office providers who are involved with us receive personal data from our customers if these are necessary to render the service. All processors are contractually required to treat customer data confidentially and may only process it for the purpose of performance.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of the processing and no legal requirements restrict deletion.
You have the right to object to the use of your data for the purpose of direct advertising at any time. In addition, you are entitled to request information about the data stored by us about you.
