How we use your Personal Information
We use your Personal Information to provide our services to you, which includes: offering products for sale, processing payments, shipping and fulfilment of your order, and keeping you up to date on new products, services, and offers. We use Device Information that we collect to screen for potential risk or fraud, but also to load the Site accurately for you as well as optimize and improve our Site as well as our marketing campaigns by performing analytics of how our customers use and interact with the Site.

Sharing your Personal Information
We share your Personal Information with service providers to help us provide our services and fulfill our contracts with you, as described above.
We use Shopify to power our online store. You can read more about how Shopify uses your Personal Information here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy. We may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.
To carry out the newsletter, we work together with the US company Klaviyo Inc.
In this context, your data may also be transferred to other countries in which the above-mentioned contractual partner is located or processes the data. These are primarily countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) and occasionally also countries outside the EEA. This may also include transfers to the United States. According to the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for transfers of data to the US. This may pose risks to the lawfulness and security of data processing. As a basis for data processing with recipients in third countries or a data transfer there, these processors use so-called standard contractual clauses (Art. 46 (2) and (3) DSGVO). Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission to ensure that your data is transferred to and stored in third countries in accordance with European data protection standards. Through these clauses, processors undertake to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the USA. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission.
You can find the contractual text of the EU standard data protection clauses and the adequacy decisions on the websites of the European Commission, the EU standard data protection clauses here, the adequacy decisions here.
We use Klaviyo on our website as a service for our email marketing and newsletter delivery. The service provider is the American company Klaviyo, 125 Summer St, Boston, MA 02110, USA ("Klaviyo").
The use of Klaviyo on our website is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the use of a promotional, secure and user-friendly newsletter system.
The sending of the notification/newsletter is done through a mask offered on our website, through which you provide us with your email address. After you have provided us with your e-mail address, you will receive an e-mail from us in which we ask you to confirm that you would like to receive our notification/newsletter by clicking on a link (double opt-in). We will therefore only send you the notification/newsletter if you have previously expressly confirmed that you would like to receive one. The legal basis is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time.
Klaviyo acts as an order processor. We have concluded a contract on commissioned data processing (ADV) with Klaviyo. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that the latter only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the DSGVO.
The data processing agreement, which corresponds to the standard clauses, can be found at https://www.klaviyo.com/legal/dpa.

We do not engage in fully automated decision-making that has a legal or otherwise significant effect using customer data.
Our processor Shopify uses limited automated decision-making to prevent fraud that does not have a legal or otherwise significant effect on you.
Services that include elements of automated decision-making include:
Temporary blacklist of IP addresses associated with repeated failed transactions. This blacklist persists for a small number of hours.
Temporary blacklist of credit cards associated with blacklisted IP addresses. This blacklist persists for a small number of days.
