Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how and when we collect, use, and share information when you visit our website, contact us, or otherwise use our services through or its related sites and services.

Information we Collect

In order to fulfil your request to visit our website, our system automatically collects certain necessary information from the computer that’s accessing our website. Our system collects the following data:

  • the website’s address (URL), from which a file was requested
  • the file name
  • date and time of the request
  • the transferred amount of data
  • the access status (file sent, file not found, etc.)
  • description of the used web browser and system software
  • IP address during the active session
  • anonymized IP address of the accessing computer

Our system temporarily saves your IP address to enable your computer access to our website. During the time of your visit the IP address is stored to assure the correct operation of the website. We do not use your IP address for marketing purposes.

Above information is anonymized and saved in log files. Based on this anonymized information an identification of the user is not possible. This information is exclusively used for technical and statistical purposes. We do not share this personal information with any third party.

Deletion of the information

All information is deleted once the purpose of its collection no longer exists. In case of data collection to enable access to the website the information is deleted as soon as the active session is closed. All information saved in the log files is deleted after 7 days.

Why we Need Your Information and How we Use It

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

  • as needed to provide our services, such as when we use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
  • when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for our mailing list;
  • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
  • as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as providing and improving our services

We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest to improve our services.


Our website uses Cookies. Cookies are text files, which are saved in the accessing internet browser and computer system. This website uses Cookies to manage session data. Cookies are also set by the javascript applets we include from Etsy Limited to show previews of our Etsy shops.

Why we use Cookies

Cookies are used exclusively to gain access to parts of the website, which require an authentication. Regular users are treated as anonymous. We don’t collect and use any personal data of a regular user. Cookies are further used to control the display of articles inside the preview window of our Etsy shops.

Deletion of Cookies

Cookies are saved by the accessing computer and then transferred from there to our website. This gives you as the user full control over the usage of Cookies. You can deactivate or limit the transfer of Cookies in the settings of your internet browser. You can also delete already saved Cookies. You can still access our website with deactivated Cookies.

SSL encryption

To secure the transfer of personal information this website uses SSL encryption. With SSL encryption a third party cannot read the information you and your computer system sends to us. You can identify an encrypted access through „https://„ in the URL (instead of „http://„) and the lock symbol next to the URL.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions (we use Googlemail as our email provider). As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below:

  1. Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.
  2. Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.
  3. Object.You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
  4. Complain.If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
