Pursuant to Art. 4 item 1. of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the Basic Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to only as "DSGVO"), "processing" shall mean any operation or set of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, alignment or combination, restriction, deletion or destruction.

With the following data protection declaration we inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration and legal basis of the processing of personal data, insofar as we decide either alone or together with others about the purposes and means of processing. In addition, we inform you in the following about the third-party components we use for optimisation purposes and to increase the quality of use, insofar as third parties process data on their own responsibility.

Our privacy policy is structured as follows:

I. Information about us as the responsible party
II. Rights of users and affected parties
III. Information on data processing

I. Information about us as responsible persons

Responsible provider of this website in the sense of data protection law is:

II Rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing described in more detail below, the users and data subjects have the right

  • to obtain confirmation as to whether or not data relating to him/her are being processed, information on the data processed, further information on the data processing and copies of the data (see also Art. 15 DSGVO)
  • the correction or completion of incorrect or incomplete data (see also Art. 16 FADP);
  • to the immediate deletion of data relating to them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alternatively, if further processing is necessary pursuant to Art. 17 para. 3 DSGVO, to the restriction of processing in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO;
  • to the receipt of data concerning them and provided by them and to the transfer of such data to other providers/responsible parties (cf. also Art. 20 DSGVO);

In addition, the provider is obliged to inform all recipients to whom data has been disclosed by the provider of any correction or deletion of data or the restriction of processing that is carried out on the basis of Articles 16, 17 (1), 18 FADP. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Notwithstanding this, the user has a right to information about these recipients.

Likewise, in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, users and data subjects have the right to object to the future processing of data relating to them, provided that the data is processed by the provider in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) DSGVO. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing is permitted.

III. Information on data processing

Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any legal storage obligations and no other information on individual processing methods is provided below.

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted to us or to our web space provider by your Internet browser. These so-called server log files are used to record, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you have switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which our Internet presence is used.

This data is temporarily stored, but not together with other data about you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our Internet presence.

The data will be deleted after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidential purposes. Otherwise, the data are completely or partially excluded from deletion until the final clarification of an incident.

Cookies

a) Session cookies/session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.

This processing makes our internet presence more user-friendly, more effective and more secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our internet presence in different languages or the offer of a shopping basket function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies process data for the purpose of contract initiation or contract processing.

If the processing does not serve the purpose of contract initiation or contract processing, our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of the functionality of our Internet presence. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.

b) Third party cookies

Where appropriate, our website may also use cookies from partner companies with whom we cooperate for the purposes of advertising, analysis or the functionality of our website.

Please refer to the following information for details on this, in particular on the purposes and legal basis for processing such third-party cookies.

c) Possibility of removal

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by adjusting your Internet browser settings. You can also delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the Internet browser you are actually using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. With so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented by the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash Player you are actually using. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, however, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

Contract execution

The data transmitted by you for the use of our range of goods and/or services will be processed by us for the purpose of processing the contract and is required in this respect. Conclusion and processing of the contract are not possible without providing your data.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

We delete the data when the contract has been completely processed, but must observe the retention periods under tax and commercial law.

Within the framework of contract processing, we will pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of goods or to the financial service provider, insofar as the transfer is necessary for the delivery of goods or for payment purposes.

The legal basis for the transfer of data is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Customer account / registration function

If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will collect and store the data you enter during registration (e.g. your name, your address or your e-mail address) exclusively for pre-contractual services, for the fulfilment of the contract or for the purpose of customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders with us or to offer you the so-called notepad function). At the same time we will save the IP address and the date of your registration together with the time. Of course, this data will not be passed on to third parties.

Within the scope of the further registration process, your consent to this processing will be obtained and reference will be made to this data protection declaration. The data collected by us in the process will be used exclusively for the provision of the customer account.

Insofar as you consent to this processing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing.

If the opening of the customer account also serves the purpose of pre-contractual measures or the fulfilment of the contract, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

You may revoke the consent given to us to open and maintain the customer account at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you must only inform us of your revocation.

The data collected in this respect will be deleted as soon as the processing is no longer necessary. However, we have to observe tax and commercial law retention periods.

Examination of creditworthiness and scoring

Insofar as we offer you the basic option of payment by invoice within the scope of our range of goods or services and you make use of this option, we reserve the right to obtain a credit report from a credit agency (such as Creditreform, Schufa, Bürgel or infoscore) on the basis of mathematical-statistical methods. For this purpose, we will forward your data to the credit agency, as far as they are relevant to the contract, e.g. your name and address. We use the subsequent information about the statistical probability of a payment default to decide whether we offer you payment by invoice.

The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest in the reliability of the claim in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f) DSGVO.

Newsletter

If you register for our free newsletter, the data requested from you for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and - optionally - your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time we save the IP address of the internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. During the further registration process, we will obtain your consent to send you the newsletter, describe the content specifically and refer you to this data protection declaration. We use the data collected in the process exclusively for sending the newsletter - they are therefore in particular not passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in every newsletter.

Contact enquiries / Contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your enquiry - without the provision of this data, we cannot answer your enquiry or can only answer it to a limited extent.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your enquiry has been finally answered and the deletion is not opposed by any legal storage obligations, as for example in the case of a possible subsequent contract processing.

User contributions, comments and ratings

We offer you to publish questions, answers, opinions or evaluations, hereinafter only "contributions", on our Internet pages. If you make use of this offer, we will process and publish your contribution, date and time of submission and the pseudonym you may use.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you must only inform us of your revocation.

In addition, we also process your IP and e-mail address. The IP address is processed because we have a legitimate interest in initiating or supporting further steps if your contribution infringes the rights of third parties and/or is otherwise illegal.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in any necessary legal defence.

Subscription of contributions

If you publish contributions on our Internet pages, we also offer you the option of subscribing to any subsequent contributions by third parties. In order to be able to inform you about these subsequent contributions by e-mail, we process your e-mail address.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent to this subscription at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in the respective e-mail.

Online job applications / publication of job advertisements

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us via our website. With these digital applications, your applicant and application data will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application procedure.

The legal basis for this processing is § 26 para. 1 p. 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.

If a contract of employment is concluded after the application procedure, we will store the data you provide during the application process in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organisational and administrative process - this is, of course, in compliance with the more extensive legal obligations.

The legal basis for this processing is also § 26 para. 1 sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.

If an application is rejected, we automatically delete the data transmitted to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the data will not be deleted if the data requires longer storage of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to legal provisions, e.g. due to the obligation to produce evidence under the AGG.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and Art. 24 para. 1 no. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in legal defence or enforcement.

If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be processed further on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO by making a declaration to us with effect for the future.

Lottery

We offer you the opportunity to participate in competitions via our website. If you take part in one of our competitions, the data you enter when taking part will be processed without your further consent, but naturally only for the purpose of carrying out and processing the respective competition.

In the course of processing the competition, we will pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of the goods or to a financial service provider, insofar as the transfer is necessary for the delivery or payment of your prize. If your data is published in the event of a win, you will be informed of this in the declaration of consent.

The legal basis for the transfer of data is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent to the processing of data for participation in our competitions at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation.

Facebook

To promote our products and services and to communicate with interested parties or customers, we operate a company presence on the Facebook platform.

On this social media platform we are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.

The data protection officer of Facebook can be reached via a contact form:

https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/540977946302970

We have regulated the joint responsibility in an agreement regarding the respective obligations within the meaning of the DSGVO. This agreement, from which the mutual obligations arise, can be accessed via the following link:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum

The legal basis for the processing of personal data which is carried out as a result and which is reproduced below is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the analysis, communication, sales and advertising of our products and services.

The legal basis may also be the user's consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO to the platform operator. The user can revoke this consent for the future at any time by notifying the platform operator in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO.

When our online presence is called up on the Facebook platform, user data (e.g. personal information, IP address etc.) are processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. as operator of the platform in the EU.

This user data is used for statistical information about the use of our company presence on Facebook. Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes as well as to create user profiles. Using these profiles, Facebook Ireland Ltd. is, for example, able to promote the interests of users within and outside of Facebook. If the user is logged into his or her account on Facebook at the time of access, Facebook Ireland Ltd. can also link the data to the respective user account.

In the event that the user contacts Facebook, the user's personal data entered on this occasion will be used to process the request. The user's data will be deleted by us, provided that the user's inquiry has been finally answered and there are no legal storage obligations, e.g. in the case of a subsequent execution of the contract.

Facebook Ireland Ltd. may also use cookies to process the data.

If the user does not agree with this processing, it is possible to prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the browser settings accordingly. Already stored cookies can also be deleted at any time. The settings for this depend on the respective browser. In the case of flash cookies, processing cannot be prevented by the browser settings, but by the corresponding setting of the flash player. If the user prevents or restricts the installation of cookies, this can lead to the fact that not all Facebook functions can be used to their full extent.

More details on the processing activities, their prevention and the deletion of data processed by Facebook can be found in the Facebook data policy:

https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation

It is not excluded that the processing by Facebook Ireland Ltd. may also take place via Facebook Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025 in the USA.

When our online presence is called up on the Instagram platform, user data (e.g. personal information, IP address etc.) are processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. as the platform operator in the EU.

This user data is used for statistical information about the use of our company presence on Instagram. Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes as well as to create user profiles. For example, Facebook Ireland Ltd. may use these profiles to promote the interests of users inside and outside Instagram.

Linking Social-Media via graphic or text link

We also advertise on our website presences on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents that when a website with a social media application is called up, a connection is automatically established to the respective server of the social network to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user forwarded to the service of the respective social network.

After the user is forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be excluded that the data collected in this way is processed in the USA.

This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and visited page. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the user's specific visit to the user's personal account. If the user interacts via a "share" button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user's personal user account and published if necessary. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.

The following social networks are integrated into our site through links:

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics in our Internet presence. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Through the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

guarantees Google that the data protection requirements of the EU will also be observed when processing data in the USA.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyse the usage behaviour of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, place, time or frequency of the visit to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymisation function. With this function Google shortens the IP address already within the EU or EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it will not link your IP address to other data. Google also keeps a record of your IP address under

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners

will provide you with further information on data protection law, for example on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

In addition, Google offers under

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with all common internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about your visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services. Whether and which other web analysis services are used by us, you will of course also find out in this data protection declaration.

Google reCAPTCHA

In our internet presence we use Google reCAPTCHA to check and avoid interactions on our website through automated access, e.g. through so-called bots. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter only "Google".

Through the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

guarantees Google that the data protection requirements of the EU will also be observed when processing data in the USA.

This service enables Google to determine from which website an inquiry is sent and from which IP address you are using the so-called reCAPTCHA input box. In addition to your IP address, Google may also collect other information that is necessary for the offer and guarantee of this service.

The legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the security of our Internet presence as well as in the prevention of unwanted, automated access in the form of spam or similar.

Google offers under

We use YouTube in our Internet presence. This is a video portal of YouTube LLC., 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter only referred to as "YouTube".

YouTube is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter only referred to as "Google".

guarantees Google, and thus also its subsidiary YouTube, that the EU data protection regulations will also be observed when processing data in the USA.

We use YouTube in conjunction with the Enhanced Privacy Mode feature to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence. According to YouTube, the function "Extended Privacy Mode" has the effect that the data described in more detail below is only transmitted to the YouTube server when you actually start a video.

Without this "Extended Privacy Mode", a connection to the YouTube server in the USA is established as soon as you access one of our Internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is required in order to display the respective video on our website via your Internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time, and the website you visit. Furthermore, a connection to the advertising network "DoubleClick" of Google will be established.

If you are also logged in to YouTube, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or change the settings in your YouTube account.

For the purpose of functionality as well as for the analysis of usage behaviour, YouTube permanently stores cookies via your internet browser on your end device. If you do not agree with this processing, you have the possibility to prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your internet browser settings. You will find more information on this under "Cookies" above.

In some cases, the processing of user data takes place on Vimeo servers in the USA. Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt00000008V77AAE&status=Active

Vimeo guarantees, however, that the data protection regulations of the EU will also be observed when processing data in the USA.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence.

If you visit a page of our website in which a video is embedded, a connection to the Vimeo servers in the USA will be established to display the video. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Vimeo to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.

If you are logged in to Vimeo while visiting one of our Internet sites in which a Vimeo video is embedded, Vimeo may assign the information collected to your personal user account. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Vimeo before visiting our website or configure your Vimeo user account accordingly.

For the purpose of functionality and usage analysis, Vimeo uses the web analysis service Google Analytics. Google Analytics stores cookies on your end device via your Internet browser and sends information about the use of our Internet pages in which a Vimeo video is embedded to Google. It cannot be ruled out that Google may process this information in the USA.

If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. You will find details on this above under the item "Cookies".

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence and in the legitimate interest of Vimeo to analyze user behavior statistically for optimization and marketing purposes.

Google AdWords with conversion tracking

In our internet presence we use the advertising component Google AdWords and the so-called conversion tracking. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter only referred to as "Google".

Through the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

guarantees Google that the data protection requirements of the EU will also be observed when processing data in the USA.

We use conversion tracking to advertise our offer in a targeted manner. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website.

If you click on an advertisement placed by Google, the conversion tracking system we use stores a cookie on your end device. These so-called conversion cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve for your personal identification.

If the cookie is still valid and you visit a particular page of our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you have clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and that you have subsequently been redirected to our website.

Google uses the information collected in this way to create statistics about your visit to our website. We also receive information about the number of users who clicked on our advertisement(s) and the pages of our website that were subsequently called up. However, neither we nor third parties who also use Google AdWords are able to identify you in this way.

You can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by means of the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. At the same time you can delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the Internet browser you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support.
