III. Information about the data processing
Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, provided the deletion of the same is not in breach of any statutory storage obligations or unless otherwise stipulated below.

Server data
For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider Aditsystems will be collected, especially to ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files record the type and version of your browser, operating system, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the webpages on our site visited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you visited our site.

The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.

The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality, and security of our website.

The data will be deleted within no more than seven days, unless continued storage is required for evidentiary purposes. In which case, all or part of the data will be excluded from deletion until the investigation of the relevant incident is finally resolved.

After your order has been completed, your personal data will be deleted, but only after the retention periods required by tax and commercial law.

In order to process your order, we will share your data with the shipping company responsible for delivery to the extent required to deliver your order and/or with the payment service provider to the extent required to process your payment.

The legal basis for the transfer of this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Customer account/registration
If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will use the data you entered during registration (e.g. your name, your address, or your email address) exclusively for services leading up to your potential placement of an order or entering some other contractual relationship with us, to fulfil such orders or contracts, and to provide customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders or to be able to offer you a wishlist function). We also store your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This data will not be transferred to third parties.

During the registration process, your consent will be obtained for this processing of your data, with reference made to this privacy policy. The data collected by us will be used exclusively to provide your customer account.

If you give your consent to this processing, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR is the legal basis for this processing.

If the opening of the customer account is also intended to lead to the initiation of a contractual relationship with us or to fulfil an existing contract with us, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

You may revoke your prior consent to the processing of your personal data at any time under Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR with future effect. All you have to do is inform us that you are revoking your consent.

Links YouTube videos
We also integrate the following social media site into our website:
YouTube, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA. Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the social network. The use of these graphics stored on our own servers prevents the automatic connection to the servers of this network for their display. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic will you be forwarded to the service of the social network.

Once you click, that network may record information about you and your visit to our site. It cannot be ruled out that such data will be processed in the United States. The United States is considered to be a country with an inadequate level of data protection according to EU standards by the European Court of Justice. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without legal remedies.

Initially, this data includes such things as your IP address, the date and time of your visit, and the page visited. If you are logged into your user account on that network, however, the network operator might assign the information collected about your visit to our site to your personal account. If you interact by clicking like, share, etc., this information can be stored in your personal user account and possibly posted on the respective network. To prevent this, you need to log out of your social media account before clicking on the graphic. The social media network also offer settings that you can configure accordingly.

Shariff social media buttons
The content on our pages can be shared in accordance with data protection in social networks such as Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter or via email and WhatsApp. We use the Shariff Wrapper plugin.

The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website.

Shariff is an open source program developed by c’t and heise. By integrating this plug-in, linked graphics prevent the social network from automatically establishing a connection to the respective social networks server when you visit website(s) on which the buttons are integrated. Only if you click on one of these linked graphics will you be forwarded to the service of the respective social network. Only then will information about your use of our site be recorded by the respective social network. This information may include your IP address, the date and time you visited our site, as well as the pages you viewed.

If you are logged in to one of the social network services while visiting one of our websites with the integrated social media buttons, the information collected from your specific visit will be recognized by the provider of that social network and assigned to your personal user account there and/or publish information about your interaction with our site there. If, for example, you use the share button for the social network, this information may be stored in your user account there and published on the platform of the respective social network provider. To prevent this, you must either log out of the social network before clicking the graphic or make the appropriate settings in your social network account.

Further information about Shariff is available at http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html.

Application and use of Matomo
Our website uses Matomo (formerly: PIWIK). This is open-source software with which we can analyse the use of our site. Data such as your IP address, the pages you visit, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the duration of your visit, and the frequency of your visits is processed.

Matomo stores a cookie on your device via your browser in order to collect this data. This cookie is valid for one week.

The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis and optimization of our website.

We use Matomo with the “Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs” function. This anonymization function truncates your IP address by two bytes so that it is impossible to assign it to you or to the internet connection you are using.

a) Mollie integration Apple Pay
In order to be able to offer Apple Pay from Apple Distribution International (Apple), Hollyhill Industrial Estate, Hollyhill, Cork, Ireland, payment processing is carried out via the Apple Pay function of a device operated with iOS, watchOS or macOS by debiting a deposit with Apple Pay payment card. Apple Pay uses security features that are integrated into the hardware and software of your device to protect the transactions. To release a payment, a code previously specified by the you and verification using the face ID or touch ID function of the end device are required.

Personal data and order data communicated as part of the ordering process are passed on to Apple in encrypted form. Apple then encrypts this data again with a developer-specific key before the data is sent to the payment service provider of the payment card stored in Apple Pay to carry out the payment. Encryption ensures that only the website through which the purchase was made can access the payment data. After the payment has been made, Apple sends your device account number and a transaction-specific, dynamic security code to the outgoing website to confirm the payment.

Apple retains anonymized transaction information, including the approximate purchase amount, approximate date and time, and whether the transaction was completed successfully. Anonymization completely excludes personal references. Apple uses the anonymized data to improve Apple Pay and other Apple products and services.

If you use Apple Pay on the iPhone or Apple Watch to complete a purchase, the Mac and the authorization device communicate over an encrypted channel on the Apple servers. Apple does not process or store any of this information in a format that can identify you. You can deactivate the option to use Apple Pay on your Mac in the settings of your iPhone.
