Privacy Policy


Data collection:

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. Our website can generally be used without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or email address) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.


We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from third-party access.


We collect data when initiating, concluding, processing and reversing a placement order. These data will get collected from us, saved and processed.


Use and disclosure of data: The personal data that you give us e.g. when placing an order or by email (e.g. your name and address or your email address) will be stored in our customer database and connected systems. The data will only be used within the framework of the existing contract between the parties, for example for processing the software / layout purchase, sending order and product information, and for support. To process payments, we pass on your payment details to the service provider responsible for payment (PayPal, Klarna (formerly Sofort Banking)). There is no further use of the data.


We assure that we will not otherwise pass on your personal data to unauthorized third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so or you have given us your prior consent. Insofar as we use service providers to carry out and process processing processes, the contractual relationships are regulated in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act.


Consent and revocation: If you have given us personal data, you can delete it at any time. Data for billing and accounting purposes are not affected by cancellation / revocation or deletion.
