All personal data are always treated in the strictest confidence. We use your personal data in the first instance to enable us to process your order with maximum efficiency, for the delivery of goods and to provide our services, as well as for processing your payments. For this purpose we will pass your data to authorised service providers and, where appropriate, to affiliated companies. In addition, we will pass them on to organisations providing commercial information for the purposes of credit evaluation and monitoring creditworthiness.
Address data obtained in the course of order processing are, where appropriate, used by us or by our affiliated companies for advertising and market research purposes. You may of course at any time prevent the data from being used for advertising and market research purposes by contacting Franz Gehrig.
Please let us have your e-mail address so that we can contact you more easily and quickly. Naturally we will only use it for advertising and market research purposes if you have expressly agreed to such use. You can revoke that consent at any time by deselecting the appropriate option in your personal data.

Your data are protected. A secure link (http via SSL, also known as HTTPS) is used whenever you complete any forms or access your data. The data entered by you are automatically encrypted before they are sent. All data and information that we receive are protected and are accessible only to authorised personnel.
Your credit-card information is not stored on our server, but on a server operated by Ipayment Payment Services in Germany.
