What exactly do we do with your data?

After this retention period, the documents and the data will be destroyed or deleted. In the merchandise management system, we will gladly keep the data longer if you still want to place orders and you want to be managed as a long-term customer. After all, long-term customer loyalty is something very important today and that includes history as well.
During this time, we are doing data surveys in order to constantly improve them. These statistics are for internal purposes only and will not be disclosed.

Using social plugins from Facebook using the “2-click solution”
On our website, so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook are used. This service is offered by the company Facebook Inc. (“Provider”).
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). An overview of the plugins of Facebook and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, the plugins are integrated into the page using a “2-click solution”. This integration ensures that a connection to the servers of Facebook is not established when a page of our website that contains such plugins is accessed. It is only when you activate the plugins and give your consent to the data transmission that your browser is set up
