This also includes information provided in e-mails you send to us.
Information we collect about you. The Site collects various information from you in the course of your navigation, such as the URL of the Site you just came from, the browser version you use, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, IP ports, date/time of access, size of data transferred, pages you visit, and other "click stream" data. We are typically not able to relate such data to you as an individual if you merely browse our Site and do not disclose your identity to us, e.g. in connection with a registration.
We use "cookies" to enable the shop function and enhance the experience of your web browsing on the Site.
A "cookie" is information either temporarily or permanently stored in a file on your computer. You can set your internet browser to reject cookies (refer to your internet browser instructions if you wish to do so), but that may limit your use of some convenience features at this Site and shop function.

eTracker in order to track trends and analyze user patterns on the website. If you do not wish that your visits are

Your data will not be used in any kind of automatic decision-making or profiling.
We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by your account password and we urge you to take steps to keep
your personal information safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use. We protect your information from potential security
breaches by implementing technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee
that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our website and webshop,
you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
