estos GmbH Data Privacy Statement
Protection of your private domain in the handling of your personal data is a key pledge for us. If you visit our website, our web servers automatically store the IP address of your Internet service provider, the website you visit our website from, the pages of our website you look at and the date and time of your visit. This information is absolutely essential for the technical transmission of websites and secure server operation. This data is not mined for personal information.
If you send us information using our contact form, this data is stored on our servers during the course of the data backup. We use your data exclusively to process your request. Your data is treated in the strictest confidence. It is not passed on to third parties.
Personal data means data about you. It includes your name, your address and your e-mail address. You do not need to reveal any personal information in order to visit our website. In some cases, we will need your name and address along with other information in order to be able to offer you the service you require.
The same goes for instances where we are providing you with information material at your request or if we are replying to your enquiry. In these situations, we will always make you aware that we need your personal data to do this. Moreover, we only store data that you have provided to us automatically or voluntarily.
If you use any of our services, we generally only gather the data needed to be able to offer you that service. We may ask you for further information, however providing this is entirely voluntary. Whenever we are processing personal data, we do this in order to offer you our services or to be able to pursue our commercial objectives.
Non-Personal Data that Is Stored Automatically
For administrative and technical reasons, we store certain information when you visit our websites. This includes: the type and version of the browser you are using, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address and the referrer (URL of the page you visited us from).
This data is anonymised and used solely for statistical purposes or to improve our Internet and online services.
This anonymised data is stored separately from personal data on secure systems and cannot be attributed to any individual. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.
For every customer who registers, we set up password-protected direct access to their stored stock data (customer account). Here, you can add products to your basket and purchase them, as well as view and manage your customer account. You are obliged to treat this access information in confidence and not to make it available to third parties. We cannot accept any liability for misused passwords unless we were the cause of the password being misused.
If you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on your hard drive. Only the Internet protocol address is stored in this - no personal data is included. The information stored in the cookies makes it possible for us, next time you visit our website, to recognize you automatically and make your use of the site easier. Cookies, for example, enable us to optimize the website for your needs or store your password so that you do not need to enter it again each time.
We have created an option for you to decide specifically which cookies you want to accept. The following setting option is also provided to you as a banner at the top of our pages and displayed until you have made your decision.
Social Media Sites
The social media sites Facebook, Twitter and Xing that we link to, as well as the video platform YouTube, guide users to our company presence on the sites of the respective providers. If you do not have your own account with these providers or are not currently logged in there, no personal data is transferred when you visit these sites via our link. The relevant data privacy information from the providers can be found here:

Use of Google Analytics with Anonymization Function
On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and which permit an analysis of your use of the website.
The information generated through these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transferred to Google in the USA and stored there.
On our website, we use Google Analytics with the "_gat._anonymizeIp" add-on. In this case, your IP address is truncated and therefore anonymised by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to put together reports on website activities for us and in order to provide other services related to website use and Internet use. Google may also pass on this information to third parties if this is legally required or if third parties process this data on Google's behalf.
According to its own statements, Google will not, under any circumstances, connect your IP address with other data from Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser software; we do point out, however, that by doing so you may be unable to use the full functionality of our website.
This website uses HEIAS Internet Retargeting Technologies from ADNOLOGIES GmbH, Caffamacherreihe 8, D-20355 Hamburg. These technologies allow partner websites to be specifically used to target Internet users with advertising who have already expressed an interest in our shop and products. Advertising is displayed based on a cookie-based analysis of previous user behavior.

When you register for the newsletter, your e-mail address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time. You will have expressly provided the declaration of consent below separately or as part of the ordering process:
We will regularly send you carefully selected offers relating to similar products in our range via e-mail.
To send out our newsletter, we use the double opt in process, i.e. we will only send you a newsletter via e-mail if you have previously expressly confirmed that we can enable the newsletter service. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail and ask you to confirm, by clicking one of the links contained in this e-mail, that you wish to receive our newsletter.
If you subsequently no longer wish to receive any more newsletters from us, you can cancel your subscription at any time and incur no other costs than the transmission costs based on basic rates. A message in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) sent to the contact address detailed in the legal information section of the website is sufficient. Every newsletter of course also contains an unsubscribe link.
We have made technical and administrative security arrangements to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All of our employees and service providers working for us are obliged to comply with applicable data protection regulations.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, the data is encrypted before it is transferred anywhere. In other words, your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security arrangements are constantly being improved and our data privacy statements are constantly reviewed. Please ensure that you are basing your data decisions on the latest version.
