We use the payment services provided by PayPal, Inc. and all companies in which PayPal or its successor directly or indirectly from time to time owns or controls ("PayPal"). The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg
PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments through credit cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also accepts trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.
If you choose "PayPal" as payment option, we automatically transmit your data to PayPal. By selecting PayPal as payment option, you agree to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing. The data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, and other data if this is necessary for the payment processing.
PayPal is an independent controller and it processes personal data on its own behalf. To learn more about PayPal's data collection and use with respect to its payment services, please read the privacy notice at https://www.braintreepayments.com/de/legal/data-protection-addendum.
You may exercise your data subject rights in connection with the payment processing services with PayPal according to the instructions described in the Privacy Statement available at www.paypal.com.
With respect to the processing of payments and depending on the payment method chosen and available, we may also share your personal data with PayPal or any other involved payment provider.

Whether you place an order, create a profile or enter into a consultant agreement, we recognize the importance of maintaining the security of our customers' personal information. We use reasonable security measures, including physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to protect your personal information. Here are some examples of security measures we use to protect your personal information:
- Passwords are required to access your online account and help to protect your account information. Please keep this password confidential.
- Encryption technology, called Transport Layer Security (TLS), helps to protect personal information in certain areas of our websites during transport across the Internet. The presence of TLS encryption may be indicated by https in the browser URL or the image of a closed lock or solid key in the browser window. These indications may not be present in mobile services that use TLS.
- For payment card information, we use secured networks, encryption or other protection of cardholder data, physical and technical access controls, monitoring and tests of security systems, and other information security practices to help to protect your information.
In addition, we use commercially reasonable measures to protect the customer data against unauthorized access. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the internet or stored on computer systems can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information we do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our website, and you do so at your own risk.
