We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.
Your personal data will be transmitted in encrypted form with us. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use the encryption system SSL (Secure Socket Layer), but point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. in the case of communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data from access by third parties is therefore not possible.
To safeguard your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 GDPR, which we always adapt to state-of-the-art technology.
We also do not guarantee that our offer will be available at specific times; disturbances, interruptions or failures cannot be excluded. The servers we use are regularly backed up with care.

5. Transfer of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries

In principle, we use your personal data only within our company.
If and to the extent that we engage third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transmission is required for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of the data processing (“commissioned processing”), we contractually obligate processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the data subject’s rights.
Data transmission to agencies or persons outside the EU outside of the cases mentioned in this declaration in paragraph 2 does not take place and is not planned.
