By decoding all your personal data like name or address, your data will be encrypted by Sterntaler’s security software. By this method your data cannot be read by unauthorised parties during the transfer on the internet. Most of the newer browsers already support this secure transfer technology. This secure transfer method is working if your browser either shows the symbol of an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser).
We take all technical and organisational safety precautions in order to protect your collected data against incidental or intended manipulation, loss, deletion or unauthorised access through third persons. Our data procession and safety measures are subject to constant improvement in accordance with the latest technological developments. Our employees as well as the members of staff of the shop provider appointed by us are contractually obliged to observe the confidentiality of data in accordance with section 5 of the BDSG.
We use so-called Session-Cookies; these are small text files, which are stored locally on your computer when you visit our website. This enables us to identify you as a registered user during your shopping and to make your shopping experience as pleasant as possible.
If you do not wish to have information placed on your computer in the form of cookies, you may choose to block cookies with your browser or you may set your browser in that way that you will be notified if you receive a cookie. Information about how to deactivate cookies can be obtained by using the „help“-function of your browser.

), operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S Califonia Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304 USA. These plugins are identifiable by the facebook-logo or an additional text.
When you click on a site with one of these plugins, the plugin sets up a direct link from your browser to the facebook servers. Since this transmission is a direct one, we do not have any knowledge of the data submitted. The information transmitted is that you have clicked on the corresponding site. Should you be logged in to Facebook at the same time, this information will also be assigned to your Facebook account and therefore become personal data. Same applies when using the plugin functions (e.g. the „like“-button) or posting comments.
If you want to prevent a direct data transmission to your Facebook account, you should only visit our website as long as you are not logged in to Facebook.
