1.Cookies
We use so called cookies on our website. Cookies are small files which are stored on your data storage device and which save, via your browser, certain settings and data for a data exchange with our system. The saved date enables us to design the website according to your needs and to provide you with easy usage of our website. For example it prevents you having to enter all your data again at every visit. Session cookies are automatically deleted from your data storage device after each browser session. Some cookies (so called long term cookies) are stored permanently on your data storage device. The expiry period of these cookies is set for a time in the distant future for your convenience. On your next visit our system recognizes that you have visited before and remembers which settings and inputs you prefer. Please note also our information for the usage of cookies regarding social-plugins and web analysis.

Your protection options
Independently of the lifespan of cookies you can delete them manually from your data storage device. Most browsers accept cookies by default. In your security settings you optionally can allow or prevent temporary and stored cookies. Apart from browser settings which generally deactivate the automatic storage of cookies you can also choose browser settings that block cookies of a particular domain, i. e. „googleadservices.com“. This setting prevents then the execution of corresponding services which are performed by cookies of this domain.

Some web services work with opt-out cookies. With these stored cookies the web analysis service can recognise that you do not wish data collection. Please remember that, if you delete all cookies, under certain circumstances some settings have to be re-entered.
The acceptance of cookies is no prerequisite for a visit to our online offers. If you deactivate or do not accept cookies then under those circumstances some of the options on offer (for example services and information) are not available to you or some pages will not be displayed properly.

4.Social Plugins (Facebook, Google+, Twitter etc.)
We have installed on our website so called Social-Plugins. These are little programs which link information about your visit to our website to data of your usage of a corresponding Social Media Platform, for example with a Facebook user, and then submit that information to the platform. This applies equally to the Google +1Button of Google+ or the option to send tweets straight from our website to Twitter.

We would like to point out that as provider of this website we do not have authoritative knowledge about the contents of the submitted data as well as the usage through the Social Media Platforms. If you would like to protect yourself from data transfer we do recommend in general that you log out from the Social Media Platform before you visit our website.


„2 -click”– for all the mentioned plug-ins applies the following:
To give you better control in regards to the usage of your data, the corresponding buttons are at first not active (recognisable by the grey depiction and the mouse-over-hint), when you access this site. Only if you yourself activate the corresponding Social Plugin by clicking on the displayed button will the above outlined connection to the server of the respective Social Plugins be initiated.


Facebook
If, for example, you are logged in to Facebook (https://en-gb.facebook.com/, run by Facebook Ireland Limited Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2 Ireland –"Facebook") and then visit our website your browser will be prompted to establish a connection to the Facebook servers and data, with regard to your Facebook account, will be integrated into our website. Simultaneously Facebook will learn about your visit to our website, the contents (the time and the fact of your visit) you accessed.

The Plugins are identifiable through their corresponding logo (“f like” respectively the “thumb up” sign and / or a note referring to the service). An overview about Facebook Plugins and what they look like you can find here:

IV. Credit assessment and scoring

Credit assessment and scoring with Klarna as payment method
If you have chosen the payment service provider Klarna and either Klarna “payment after delivery” or Klarna “pay over time” as payment option, then you have agreed that we obtained and submitted to Klarna the necessary personal data for the purpose of processing the payment via invoice and for an identity and credit assessment including data such as first and surname, address, birthday, gender, email address, telephone number as well as data necessary for processing the order such as the number of ordered items, the item number and the final total and taxes in percentage. The submitting of this data occurs so that Klarna, for the purpose of processing the order, can compile an invoice according to your chosen payment method and can conduct an identity and credit assessment. In doing so Klarna has, according to the Federal Data Protection Act, a legitimate interest in the submitting of personal data of the buyer and needs that data to obtain information from credit agencies for the purpose of an identity and credit assessment. For more information visit:
http://cdn.klarna.com/1.0/shared/content/legal/terms/Klarna/en_gb/privacy

Within the framework of the decision for a substantiation, execution or termination of a contractual relationship, Klarna obtains, apart from confirming addresses, information about the previous payment behaviour of the buyer as well as the probability values for payment behaviour in the future. The calculation of the score values by Klarna is made based on scientifically accredited mathematical-statistical methods. Amongst other things Klarna will use your address data for that purpose. Should, after the assessment, it transpire that your creditworthiness is not given then Klarna will inform you immediately.

Objections to the usage of personal data by Klarna

1. You can withdraw consent for the usage of personal data by Klarna at any time. However, where appropriate, Klarna might remain entitled to continue to process personal data, to use and to transmit those, in so far this is necessary for the contractual payment processing by Klarnas services or required by law or requested by a court or authority.

2. You can of course have information about your Klarna stored personal data at any time. This right is guaranteed by the Data Protection Act. Should you, as a buyer, wish this or would like to inform Klarna about changes regarding the stored data then you can contact Klarna via their customer service:
https://www.klarna.com/customer-service


V. What rights do I have?

You are entitled to object in each case against the usage of data for advertising purposes and against the creation of user profiles by using pseudonyms.

According to the Data Protection Act you are entitled to an unpaid disclosure about your stored data, the occurrence and the meaning of the probability values, the kind of data used for the calculation in addition to the data collected and respectively stored for that purpose and, if appropriate, a right of correction, blocking or deleting of data.
