As the authority responsible in accordance with statutory data protection regulations we are furnishing you with an assurance that your personal data will be collected, amended, transmitted, blocked, deleted and used within our company in accordance with the data protection regulations in force and other statutory regulations in such a way so as to protect your personal data.
In the course of the ordering sequence we shall ask you for various personal data in our customer data form which you can forward to us by sending off your order together with the remaining data in the order. Consequently we shall only collect the personal data that is sent to us by you.
This personal data shall only be collected to fulfil our own business purposes as part of the contract entered into.
Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties who are service providers involved in the order-handling process, such as, for example, the forwarders appointed to deliver the goods and the bank appointed to handle payment-related matters. In the event that your personal data is handed over to third parties the scope of the transmitted data shall be restricted to the minimum required.
By inputting your personal data and accepting this data protection statement you are stating that you agree to your personal data being collected, processed and used in accordance with the data protection statement above.
You are entitled to receive information about the personal data saved about you free of charge. May we ask that you apply to the address for the designated supplier if you have any enquiries. In so far as the personal information saved about you is incorrect, the data shall of course be corrected upon the receipt of information to that effect from you. Moreover, you shall be entitled at any time to revoke your consent to your personal data being saved with effect for the future. In the event that we are notified to that effect, the personal data saved about you shall be deleted, unless the data concerned is still required to fulfil the obligations of the contract entered into or statutory regulations prevent deletion. In this case the personal data concerned shall be blocked instead of being deleted. May we ask that you contact the address for designated supplier if you have any queries concerning data protection law.

Right of revocation
You may revoke your contractual statement within 2 weeks in writing
(E.g. latter, fax, e-mail) or by returning the thing within one month
without having to state your reasons for doing so. This
period shall begin no earlier than the receipt in writing of your right
of revocation to be sent to you under separate cover as well as receipt
of the goods. It shall suffice that the revocation or the thing is sent
off on time for the period of revocation to have been observed.
Revocation is to be sent to:
value added tax registration number: DE 220884665
Consequences of revocation
In the event that the revocation is effective, the performances already
received by both parties are to be returned and if any benefits have
been derived from them (e.g. interest), are to be handed over. If you
are unable to return some, or all, of the performance received or are
only able to do so in a poor condition, you will, given this, have to
pay us compensation for the difference in value. This shall not apply
when you return the things to us, if the deterioration of the thing is
attributable solely to it having been inspected, as you possibly would
have been able to in a shop for example. Moreover, you may avoid the
obligation to pay compensation for loss of value by not using the thing
as if it was your property and refraining from everything impairing its
value. Things which can be returned to us in a parcel are to be
returned to us. You shall have to bear the costs of return if the
supplied goods are the same as the goods you have ordered. Otherwise the
return shall be free of charge for you. Things which cannot be returned
in parcels will be collected from you. You shall have to fulfil
obligations to refund payments within 14days from sending us your
statement of revocation.
In the event of revocation the dispatch costs incurred by you in sending the goods to us shall be reimbursed to us.
