II. collection, processing and use of personal data
We process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception is made in cases where it is not possible
to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations. You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Insofar as data is stored, this is done without personal reference, such as the name of your Internet service provider, the page from which you are visiting us or the name of the requested file. These data are evaluated exclusively for the improvement of our offer and do not permit any conclusion on your person. Insofar as personal data such as name, address or e-mail addresses are collected on our pages, this is done on a voluntary basis, for example when opening a customer account. We use this data without separate consent exclusively for the fulfillment and processing of the order. With complete completion of the contract and full payment of the purchase price, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data. Your data will not be passed on to third parties or only with your express consent, and only insofar as this is necessary for the processing of our contractual relationship, in particular in the following cases:
- A transfer always takes place for the purpose of delivery to the shipping company commissioned by us for this purpose. The transfer includes such data that are necessary for a delivery of the goods. The forwarded data may be used by the service providers exclusively for the purpose of their service.
- Beyond this, your personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so or you have given us your prior consent.
- Personal data that you provide to us for the processing of orders may be stored for up to 10 years for reasons of commercial and tax law.
- Your personal data is safe with us. Our websites are protected by technical measures against damage, destruction and unauthorized access. However, we point out that data transmission on the Internet, for example, when communicating by e-mail security gaps. A complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
III. General use of the website and services
(a) Access data
Each time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. We automatically collect information about your usage behavior and your interaction with us and register data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about each access to our online offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name and URL of the accessed file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access (HTTP response code), browser type and version, operating system, referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. We use log data without attribution to your person or other profiling for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our online offer, but also to anonymously record the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent and nature of the use of our website
and services, as well as for billing purposes to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information allows us to provide personalized and location-based content and to analyze traffic, troubleshoot and improve our services. We reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is required for security purposes or if it is necessary for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After the order process has been cancelled or after payment has been received, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offence in connection with the use of our website. We also store the date of your last visit as part of your account (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links etc.).
The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Some of the cookies used are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser. Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us or our partner companies to recognize your browser the next time you visit us. You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally, as well as activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you do not accept cookies, the functionality of your website may be limited.
(c) E-mail contact
If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we store your data for processing the request and in case follow-up questions arise. We only store and use further personal data if you consent to this or if this is legally permissible without special consent.
(d) Newsletters and subscriptions
If you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. For the receipt of the newsletter, the specification of an e-mail address is sufficient. If you purchase goods or services on our website and provide your e-mail address, this may subsequently be used by us to send you a newsletter. In such a case, only direct advertising for our own similar goods or services will be sent via the newsletter.
For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this data protection declaration. No data will be passed on to third parties in connection with the processing of data for the dispatch of newsletters. The data will only be used for sending the newsletter. If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time at the address (insert appropriate link here). Your e-mail address will then be deleted from the distribution list immediately. You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request at any time by e-mail to email@example.com.
(e) Deletion of data and storage period
Unless specifically stated, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes pursued. The data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended, unless there is a necessity for the further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
(f) Legal bases
Our interests in processing data are in particular to ensure the operation and security of the website, to study the way visitors use the website, and to facilitate the use of the website. Unless specifically stated, we store personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes pursued. Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legal basis for the processing of data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Section 7 (3) UWG.
IV. Disclosure of personal data
Your data will be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this
is necessary for the delivery of the goods. For the processing of payments, we pass on your payment data to the credit institution commissioned with the payment or to the payment service provider selected for the order process. In principle, we use your personal data only within our company. If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they receive personal data only to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service. In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("commissioned processing"), we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
V. Data security
We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities. Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. To protect your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures, which we constantly adapt to the state of the art. Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disturbances, interruptions or failures cannot be excluded. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.
