Integration of Trusted Shops Trustbadge
This website contains the Trusted Shops Trustbagde for display reasons and collecting of ratings as well as for the offer of Trusted Shops products for consumers. This helps to protect our balance of interests for an optimum marketing of our product range. The Trustbadge and advertised services are products of the Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Köln. With click on the Trustbadge the webserver automatically saves a so called server-logfile containing e.g. your IP-address, date and time of the retrieval, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data). These access data will not be analysed in any way and will be overwritten automatically seven days after your visit of this website.
