In the LIEBESKIND Berlin online shop your satisfaction is paramount. We want you to feel secure. That is why we have made the protection of your privacy one of our most important tasks.
As a company under private law, we must adhere to the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and German Telemedia Act (TMG) in the same way as companies under public law. Therefore, we have taken technological and organisational measures that ensure the compliance of the provisions on data protection.
We protect your personal data with state of the art technology. We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to transfer information, which works with a 128 bit encoding to ensure that your personal data cannot be read by third parties. It may occur that our server does not accept older browser versions which only support a 40-bit or 56-bit encryption. This is why we recommend you install a current version of your browser.
Personal data are details about yourself, such as your name and address, date of birth, your e-mail address or telephone number.
Since we take the principle of data minimisation seriously, we do not collect your personal data unless it is absolutely necessary. So when you visit our online shop without buying anything, registering or participating in a competition, you can basically do so without disclosing your identity. When you access our pages, only your IP address, date, time and the pages viewed will be stored in our server. We cannot recognise who you are with this data.
If you wish to place an order, we will ask you to enter your name, address as well as e-mail address, your date of birth and phone number. We require your name and address in order to process your order. We also collect your phone number for a due and smooth processing of your order. It may be necessary to contact you by phone if there are any questions regarding the processing of your order. We solely use your phone number for the above-mentioned purpose. We will neither call you nor send you text messages without good reason.

This also applies to other cases, e.g. when you register in order to participate in a competition. Your e-mail address in combination with a password you choose yourself serve as your access data. The advantage of registering is that you can use the data you entered once for placing future orders as well. This will save you the time and effort of entering all your data again. If you are not registered as a user in the area 'My Account’, you will have to enter your complete data every time you place an order.
As a registered user in the area ‘My Liebeskind’, you have the possibility to enter only part of sensitive information such as your credit card data and leave out other data relevant for payment. In doing so, you can additionally contribute to the protection of such data, even though encrypted data transmission and especially secure data storage prevent third parties from accessing such data as well as any other personal data.
