This website is operated by MPW - Warenhandel eU, hereinafter referred to as “we”, “us” and “MPW”, based in Edt 41, 4201 Eidenberg. In this data protection declaration, we, as the person responsible according to Art. 4 Para. 7 EU-GDPR, describe which data we collect when you visit our website and for what purpose we process it. Please refer to point 10 of this data protection agreement for all relevant contact details.

Since the protection of your personal data is particularly important to us, we strictly adhere to the legal requirements of the GDPR and the EU GDPR when collecting and processing your personal data.

In the following we will inform you in detail about the scope and purpose of our data processing as well as your rights as a data subject. Please read our data protection declaration carefully before you continue to use our website and, if necessary, give your consent to data processing.



1. Personal data


Our website can generally be used without providing personal data. However, different regulations may apply to the use of individual services, which we will point out to you separately.

Apart from the cookies described in detail below, we only collect and save the data that you communicate to us yourself by inserting it into our input masks or actively interacting with our website in any other way.

Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.



2. Use of cookies


a. If you only use our website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register for a service or otherwise provide us with information - for example via a contact form - we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. So if you want to visit our website, we collect the data listed below, which is technically necessary for us to display the website to you and to ensure its stability and security in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f EU GDPR guarantee:


  • IP address

  • Date and time of the request

  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

  • Content of the request

  • Access status / http status code

  • Amount of data transferred in each case

  • Website from which the request came

  • Browser used

  • Operating system and its interface

  • Language and version of the browser software

b. In addition to the aforementioned data, first and third party cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website; these are small text files that are stored on your hard drive in the browser you are using. The body that sets a cookie (here this is done by us and the third parties listed below) receives certain information. We need these cookies on the one hand to recognize you as a user of the website and on the other hand to make the use of our services traceable. Finally, we use cookies for marketing purposes in order to analyze your usage behavior and, if necessary, to send you targeted advertising.


A basic distinction can be made between first party cookies, third party cookies and third party requests.

  • First party cookies

First party cookies are stored by us or our website in your browser in order to offer you the best possible user experience. These are in particular functional cookies, such as shopping cart cookies.

  • Third party cookies

Third party cookies are stored in your browser by a third party provider. These are mostly tracking or marketing tools that, on the one hand, evaluate your user behavior and, on the other hand, offer the third-party provider the opportunity to recognize you on other websites you have visited. In principle, retarget marketing, for example, is based on the function of such cookies.

  • Third party requests

Third party requests are all requests that you as a site user make to third parties via our site - for example, when you use plugins of social networks or, for example, use the offer of a payment provider. In this case, no cookies are stored in your browser, but it cannot be ruled out that personal data will be sent to this third party provider as a result of the interaction. For this reason, we will also inform you in detail in our data protection declaration about the tools and applications we use.


c. Our website (s) use the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

  • Transient cookies

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes in particular session cookies, which store a so-called session ID with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. These session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

  • Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which can differ depending on the cookie. However, you can delete the cookies yourself at any time in your browser settings.


d. You can change your browser settings so that, for example, you refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. In this case, however, we must point out that you may no longer be able to use all the functions of our website.

e. We also use cookies in order to be able to identify you for subsequent visits if you have an account with us - otherwise you have to log in again each time you visit.
