Thank you very much for your interest in our online presence. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. At this point we would therefore like to inform you about data protection in our company. We of course observe the legal provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and other data protection regulations.
You can trust us with your personal data! Your data is encrypted by digital security systems and transmitted to us. Our websites are protected by technical measures against damage, destruction or unauthorised access.
Subject of data protection
The subject of data protection is personal data. According to Art. 4 (1) EU-GDPR, this refers to individual details about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also usage data such as your IP address.
Storage of access data in server log files
You can visit our websites without giving out any personal information. We only store access data in what are known as server log files; this can include information such as the name of the requested file, date and time of the request, transferred data volume and the requesting provider. This data is evaluated exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer in the sense of a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-GDPR, and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person. The stored data is deleted at regular intervals.
Hosting services through a third-party provider
Within the scope of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh any other interests. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below is processed on the third party’s servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the scope described here.
This service provider is located within a country in the European Union or the European Economic Area.
Scope of data collection and storage
In general, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to use our website. However, in order for us to actually provide our services, we may need your personal data. This applies to the sending of information material and product samples, puppy starter sets for registered breeders or ordered goods, as well as to the answering of individual inquiries via our contact form or the opening of a customer account. If you instruct us to provide a service or to send goods, we use the data you provide to fulfil and process your order. For this purpose, it may be necessary to pass on your personal data to companies that we use to provide the service or to process the contract. These may be, for example, transport companies or other service providers.
If we carry out competitions or customer surveys, we would like to collect and store your personal data and will ask you for your express consent at the appropriate point on our website. You can revoke any consent given in this context to the use of your customer data at any time with effect for the future.
Our company regularly checks your creditworthiness when contracts are concluded and, in certain cases where there is a legitimate interest, also with existing customers. The credit check provides security for the company, which in turn gives the customers the possibility to pay for ordered goods on account or by direct debit, for example. For this purpose, we work together with Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, Hellersbergstraße 11, 41460 Neuss, Germany, from whom we receive the necessary data. On behalf of Creditreform Boniversum, we will provide you with the following information in advance in accordance with Art. 14 EU-GDPR:
Creditreform Boniversum GmbH is a consumer credit agency. It operates a database in which creditworthiness information on private individuals is stored.
On this basis, Creditreform Boniversum provides creditworthiness information to its customers. Customers include, for example, credit institutions, leasing companies, insurance companies, telecommunications companies, companies involved in receivables management, shipping, wholesale and retail companies and other companies that supply goods or services. Within the framework of the legal provisions, part of the data available in the information database is also used to supply other company databases, including for address trading purposes.
In the Creditreform Boniversum database, information is stored in particular on the name, address, date of birth, e-mail address if applicable, payment behaviour and the shareholding structure of individuals. The purpose of processing the stored data is to provide information about the creditworthiness of the person inquired about. The legal basis for the processing is Article 6(1f) EU-GDPR. According to this provision, information on this data may only be provided if a customer credibly demonstrates a legitimate interest in knowing this information. If data is transferred to countries outside the EU, this is done on the basis of what are known as the "Standard Contractual Clauses", which you can download from the following link:
or can be sent from there.
The data will be stored as long as knowledge of it is necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose of storage. As a rule, this knowledge is required for an initial storage period of three years. After the expiration of this date, it is checked whether storage is still necessary; otherwise, the data is deleted that same day. In the event that a case is settled, the data shall be deleted three years to the day after the settlement. Entries in the list of debtors shall be deleted in accordance with section 882e of the Code of Civil Procedure after a period of three years to the day from the date of the order for registration.
Legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1f) EU-GDPR may be: Credit decision, business initiation, shareholdings, receivables, credit assessment, insurance contract, enforcement information.
You have the right to request information from Creditreform Boniversum GmbH about your personal data stored by them. If the data stored about you is incorrect, you have the right to its correction or deletion. If it cannot be determined immediately whether the data is incorrect or correct, you have the right to block the respective data until clarification. If your data is incomplete, you may request that it be completed.
If you have given your consent to the processing of data stored by Creditreform Boniversum, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time. This revocation does not affect the legality of the processing of your data that has taken place on the basis of your consent until a possible revocation.
If you have any objections, requests or complaints regarding data protection, you can contact the data protection officer at Creditreform Boniversum at any time. He or she will help you quickly and confidentially with all questions relating to data protection. You can also submit a complaint about the processing of data by Boniversum to the state commissioner for data protection responsible for your federal German state.
The data about you that Creditreform Boniversum has stored comes from publicly accessible sources, from debt collection companies and from their customers.
To describe your creditworthiness, Creditreform Boniversum creates a score value for your data. Data on age and gender, address data and, in some cases, payment profile data is included in the score value. This data is included in the score calculation with different weightings. Creditreform Boniversum customers use the score values as an aid in making their own credit decisions.
Right of objection:
The processing of data stored by Creditreform Boniversum is carried out for compelling reasons of creditor and credit protection that are absolutely worthy of protection, which regularly outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If you exercise your right to object, we will be forced to withdraw from the contract. If you object to the processing of your data for advertising and marketing purposes, the data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

Mandatory information according to Article 13 GDPR In the case of initial contact, we are obliged under Art. 12, 13 GDPR to provide you with the following mandatory data protection information: If you contact us by e-mail, we will only process your personal data, if there is a legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. GDPR), you have consented to the data processing (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR), the processing for the initiation, justification, content design or change of a legal relationship between you and us are required (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR) or another legal norm allows the processing. Your personal data will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular tax and commercial retention periods - remain unaffected. You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to object, to data portability and to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. You can also request correction, deletion and, under certain circumstances, restriction of the processing of your personal data.
Use of data for postal advertising and your right of objection
In addition, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your postal address and – insofar as we have received this additional information from you within the scope of the contractual relationship – your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business designation in combined lists and to use them for our own advertising purposes, e.g. to send you interesting offers and information on our products by post. You can object to the storage and use of your data for these purposes at any time by sending a message to the contact address provided in the legal notice.
Data transfer to Trusted Shops
If you have given us your express consent to this during or after your order by activating a corresponding checkbox or clicking a button provided for this purpose, we will send your e-mail address for the reminder to submit an evaluation of your order to Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15c, 50823 Cologne (www.trustedshops.de), so that Trusted Shops will remind you by e-mail of the possibility to submit a rating.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of this website (usage data) only insofar as this is necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill the user. The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Creating a customer account has the advantage that we can offer you further services. In particular, when you call up your customer account, you can view previous orders and their history, you do not have to re-enter the required information regarding your person and the payment method for processing orders when placing further orders, you can manage your (shipping) addresses (and thus also order for e.g. relatives), give feedback directly on the products ordered, return the items via it or contact the seller for other reasons, such as claiming the 100-days-money-back-guarantee, or view his ratings collectively.

Note on data transfer to the USA
Tools from companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. When these tools are active, your personal data can be passed on to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to disclose personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. It cannot therefore be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) will process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Persons under 18 years of age should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and young people, do not collect such data and do not pass it on to third parties.

For this purpose, the interaction of users on our website is analyzed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users even after visiting our website on other pages. To do this, Google stores cookies in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google Display Network. This cookie is used to record the visits of these users.

Data collection through use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics for website analysis. The web analytics service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and regulated under the laws of Ireland with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (www.google.de). This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which outweigh the interests of the parties concerned, in an optimised presentation of our offering in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that enable an analysis of your use of the website, such as cookies. The automatically collected information about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. By activating IP anonymisation on this website, the IP address is truncated before transmission within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. After the discontinuation of the purpose and the end of the use of Google Analytics by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted.
For web analysis, the extension function of Google Analytics Google Signals enables so-called "cross-device tracking". If your internet-enabled devices are linked to your Google account and you have activated the “personalized advertising” setting in your Google account, Google can generate reports on your usage behavior (in particular the number of users across all devices), even if you change your device. We do not process personal data in this respect, we only receive statistics based on Google Signals.
Insofar as information is transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored there, the American company Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. A current certificate can be viewed here As a result of this agreement between the US and the European Commission, the latter has established an adequate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield.

When you visit our online presence on social media, your data may be automatically collected and stored for market research and advertising purposes. What are known as “usage profiles” are created from this data using pseudonyms.

Integration of the Trusted Shops trust badge / other widgets
Trusted Shops widgets are integrated on this website to display Trusted Shops services (e.g. seal of approval, collected ratings) and to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after they have placed an order. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in optimal marketing by enabling secure shopping in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops AG, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne ("Trusted Shops"), with whom we are jointly responsible for data protection pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO. Within the framework of this data protection notice, we inform you in the following about the essential contents of the contract in accordance with Art. 26 (2) DSGVO.
Within the framework of the joint responsibility existing between us and Trusted Shops, please contact Trusted Shops in the event of data protection questions and to assert your rights, preferably using the contact options specified in the data protection information. Irrespective of this, however, you can always contact the data controller of your choice. Your enquiry will then, if necessary, be passed on to the other data controller for a response.
1. data processing when integrating the trustbadge / other widgets
The trust badge is provided by a US-American CDN provider (content delivery network).
An appropriate level of data protection is ensured in each case by an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, which can be accessed here for the USA. Service providers from the USA are generally certified under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (DPF). Further information is available here. Where service providers are not certified under the DPF, standard contractual clauses have been concluded as a suitable guarantee.
When the Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of the call-up, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call-up. The IP address is anonymised immediately after collection so that the stored data cannot be assigned to you personally. The anonymised data is used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.
2. data processing after order completion
After the order has been completed, order information (order total, order number, product purchased, if applicable) and your email address, which has been hashed using a cryptological one-way function, are transmitted to Trusted Shops. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. This serves to check whether you are already registered for services with Trusted Shops and is therefore necessary for the fulfilment of our and Trusted Shops' overriding legitimate interests in the provision of the buyer protection linked to the specific order in each case and the transactional evaluation services in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. If this is the case, further processing will be carried out in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you have not yet registered for the services, you will subsequently be given the opportunity to do so for the first time. Further processing after registration also depends on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops. If you do not register, all transmitted data is automatically deleted by Trusted Shops and a personal reference is then no longer possible.
Trusted Shops uses service providers in the areas of hosting, monitoring and logging. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation. Processing may take place in third countries (USA and Israel).
An adequate level of data protection is ensured in each case by an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, which can be accessed here for the USA and here for Israel. Service providers from the USA are generally certified under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework. Further information is available here. Where service providers are not certified under the DPF, standard contractual clauses have been concluded as a suitable guarantee.
We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and all persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with the basic data protection regulation and other laws relevant to data protection and to handle personal data confidentially.
In the case of the collection and processing of personal data, the information is transmitted in encrypted form to prevent misuse of the data by third parties. Our security measures are continuously revised in line with technological developments.
Encrypted payment transactions on this website
If there is an obligation to transmit your payment data (e.g. account number for direct debit authorisation) after the conclusion of a contract with costs, this information is required for payment processing.
The payment transactions via the usual means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are carried out exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in the browser’s address bar.
In the case of encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
We reserve the right to change our security and data protection measures if this becomes necessary due to technical developments. In this case, we will also adapt our data protection information accordingly. Therefore, please note the current version of our data protection declaration.
If you use external links that are offered within the framework of our Internet pages, this data protection declaration does not extend to these links. Insofar as we offer links, we assure that at the time of creating the link, no violations of applicable law were discernible on the linked websites. However, we have no influence on other providers’ compliance with data protection and security regulations. Therefore, please also visit the websites of the other providers to inform yourself about the data protection policies provided there.
Purpose-related use of data
We observe the principle of purpose-related data use and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have provided it to us. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, unless this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information is also only carried out within the scope of the legal obligations to provide information or if we are obliged to provide information by a court decision.
We also take internal company data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
Handling of applicant data
We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail or by post). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be in accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.
Scope and purpose of data collection
If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. This consent can be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons who are involved in the processing of your application.
If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.
Data retention period
If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you have submitted with us for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute.
