We will not share your personal data, including your home address and email address, with third parties, without your express consent, which is subject to your revocation at any time. This excludes our service partners who need the data for order processing purposes (e.g. the shipping company contracted for shipping, or the credit company contracted for payment). Scope and type of collection and use of your data may vary, based on whether you visit our website to obtain information or to make use of our services:

a) Informational use

Using our website for informational purposes does not require you to provide your personal data. Rather, in this case we collect and use only the data which is automatically transmitted to us by your internet browser, such as:

– The last site you visited
– The amount of data transmitted and access status (file sent, file not found, etc.) as well as your IP address.

During an informational visit, we collect and use this data exclusively in a form which is not personally identifiable.

We save the IP address only for the duration of your visit, and no personally identifiable analysis is done.

This includes data necessary to process your transaction, such as your mailing address for sending a coupon by mail. You may optionally include additional information which is appropriately noted.

Your data is collected or used for the purpose of performing your desired service, such as processing a coupon order or sending a newsletter you select which is customized for you. Your data is sent for the above purpose to a service provider supporting us who we of course have carefully selected. These may include technical service providers or companies assisting us with shipping. The sharing of your data with third parties is done only when we are legally required to do so.

For this it is technically necessary that we compile your data, either which we receive or which you specify, in usage profiles and evaluate these for the above purposes. You can provide your consent separately. You can subsequently revoke it at any time for future effect.
