I. General information on data processing
1. Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly carried out only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations. The types of data processed are:

Inventory data (e.g., names, addresses).
Contact data (e.g., e-mail, telephone numbers)
content data (e.g., text input, photographs, videos)
Usage data (e.g., web pages visited, interest in content, access times)
Meta/communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).
When you purchase something on this website, we collect personal information from you to process the order. We may collect information such as your:

Billing and shipping address
Details about your purchase (e.g., your shirt size)
Email address

Phone number
As you go through the checkout process, this website may automatically complete your shipping and billing address by sharing your input with the Google Places API and making suggestions to improve your checkout experience.

When you create a customer account on this website, we collect personal information to improve our checkout process and customer service.

This may include the following information:

It is not possible to unsubscribe from these messages.

We share your contact information with Squarespace, our website hosting provider, so that they can provide website services to us and send these emails to you on our behalf.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may take place beyond this if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

4. Provision of contractual services

We process inventory data (e.g., names and addresses as well as contact data of users), contract data (e.g., services used, names of contact persons, payment information) for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations and services pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit b. DSGVO. The entries marked as mandatory in online forms are required for the conclusion of the contract.

In the context of the use of our online services, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as those of users in protection against abuse and other unauthorized use. In principle, this data is not passed on to third parties, unless it is necessary for the pursuit of our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

We process usage data (e.g., the visited web pages of our online offer, interest in our products) and content data (e.g., entries in the contact form such as name, telephone, e-mail) in order to offer the user, for example, contract offers.

The deletion of the data takes place after the expiry of legal warranty and comparable obligations. In the case of legal archiving obligations, the deletion takes place after their expiry. Information in any customer account will remain until it is deleted.

5. Transfers to third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this occurs in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure, or transfer of data to third parties, this will only occur if it is done to fulfill our (pre-)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, due to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or allow the processing of data in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO are met. This means that the processing is carried out, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a level of data protection that corresponds to the EU (e.g. for the USA through the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").

II. Provision of the website and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing

When our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected for a limited period of time:

(2) The operating system of the user

(3) The user's Internet service provider

(4) The IP address of the user

(5) Date and time of access

(6) Websites from which the user's system accesses our website

The data is stored in the log files of our system. This data is only required for the analysis of any malfunctions and is deleted within seven days at the latest. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context and no conclusions are drawn about your person. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

We review the necessity every six months; Furthermore, the legal archiving obligations apply.

IV. Web analysis with Google services

DSGVO) Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC ("Google"). Google uses cookies.

Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
