4. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies". These are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit us.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies, in order to optimise this website and ensure it can be reliably provided. In so far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are covered separately in this privacy notice.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with data from any other data sources.
The lawful basis for processing the data is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest stems from the purpose for data collection, i.e. system security and stability.
If you send us enquiries via our contact form, your details from the enquiry are stored by us, including the contact details provided by you, for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the case of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent.
The data entered on the contact form are therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message to us by email is sufficient. The legality of data processing operations which occurred prior to consent being revoked remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you on the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to us storing it or the purpose for the data being stored no longer exists (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the justification, structural formulation or amendment of the legal relationship (inventory data). This occurs on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, which allows data to be processed for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data concerning the use of our websites (usage data) only in so far as is required to enable the user to use the service or be charged for it.
The collected customer data is deleted upon completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
Data transmission upon the conclusion of a contract for online shops, retailers and the shipment of goods
We transmit personal data to third parties only if this is necessary within the scope of executing the contract, i.e. to the company entrusted with shipping the goods or the credit institution commissioned with processing the payment. Further transmission of data only occurs if you have expressly consented to this transmission. Your data is not disclosed to any third parties, such as for advertising purposes, without your express consent.
The basis for data processing is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, which allows data to be processed for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
5. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses functions of the web analysis service, Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other states which are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then truncated. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities and to provide other services relating to the use of the website and the services associated with the use of the website to the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data from Google..
You can prevent cookies from being stored by modifying the settings in your browser software; however, please be aware that if you do this you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you may prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent data from being collected by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. An opt-out cookie will be placed to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics.
More information on how data is handled by Google Analytics can be found in Google's privacy notice: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
Order data processing
We have concluded an order data processing contract and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated containing statements regarding the age, gender and interests of site users. These data are drawn from interest-related advertising by Google as well as user data from third-party providers. These data cannot be traced back to any specific person. You may disable this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined under "Objection to data collection".
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").
We use Conversion Tracking as part of Google AdWords. When you click on an ad provided by Google, a cookie is placed for Conversion Tracking. Cookies are small text files that the web browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this website.
Each Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked from the websites of AdWords clients. The information collected using the conversion cookies serves to generate conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have opted for Conversion Tracking. The clients are told how many users have clicked on their ad and been redirected to a website with a Conversion Tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information which can be used to identify users. If you would prefer not to participate in tracking, you can opt out of this by simply disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via the user settings in your web browser. You will not be included in the Conversion Tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we will need an email address from you together with information that enables us to verify that you are the owner of that email address, and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Additional data is only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
The data provided on the newsletter registration form is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). Your consent to the storage of data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter may be revoked at any time, by clicking "unsubscribe" in the newsletter. The legality of data already processed remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data given to us by you for the purpose of the newsletter subscription will be stored by us until you cancel your subscription and deleted by us once the newsletter subscription is cancelled. Data stored by us for other purposes remain unaffected.
This website uses Rapidmail for sending newsletters. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany
Rapidmail is a service which can be used to organise and analyse the sending of newsletters. The data entered by you for the purpose of newsletter subscription are stored on the Rapidmail servers in Germany.
If you do not want analysis by Rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. An unsubscribe link can be found in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on our website.
Data analysis using Rapidmail
For the purpose of analysis, emails sent with Rapidmail contain a "tracking pixel", which connects to the Rapidmail servers when the email is opened. This determines whether a newsletter message has been opened.
Furthermore, we can use Rapidmail to determine which links, if any, in the newsletter message have been clicked. All links in the email are tracking links, which allow your clicks to be counted.
More information on the analysis functions of Rapidmail can be found at: https://de.rapidmail.wiki/kategorien/statistiken/.
Data is processed on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of data already processed remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data given to us by you for the purpose of the newsletter subscription will be stored by us until you cancel your subscription and, once the newsletter subscription is cancelled, deleted by us, including from our servers, and also from the Rapidmail servers. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
For more information, refer to Rapidmail's data privacy notice: https://www.rapidmail.de/datensicherheit.
Conclusion of an order data processing contract
We have concluded a contract with Rapidmail in which Rapidmail undertakes to protect the data of our customers and not to pass these data on to third parties. This contract can be viewed at: https://de.rapidmail.wiki/files/adv/muster-auftragsdatenverarbeitung.pdf.
