I. Overview of the collected data

We collect different types of data during your visit to our webpages. On the one hand, we collect personal data, i.e. data that you provide voluntarily, for example, by placing an order, signing up to our newsletter or by contacting us. On the other hand, our website uses cookies or pixels that collect information and general data to help us monitor use of our websites. Therefore, this information will be automatically transmitted to us or to third parties when you use our websites.

 

1. Personal data

It is possible to regularly visit our websites without being required to provide any personal data. However, in the cases listed below, you may be required to voluntarily disclose your personal data in order to use our services.

a.) Order placement in our shop

According to our purchase agreement, we can only effectively process order placements in our shop, if you provide the following information: first name, surname, address and e-mail address. Providing your phone number is entirely voluntary. The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 Point b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Your personal data will be stored for as long as necessary to guarantee fulfilment of our contractual obligation. After expiry of this period, they will be stored for the duration as determined by the respective legal retention periods (10 years). Your data will then subsequently be deleted.

If we have received your e-mail address in connection with the purchase of a product or service from our shop, we have the right to e-mail you offers for similar own products without your explicit consent. The legal basis for the processing of your e-mail address in this regard is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Point f) of the GDPR.

You can object to the processing of your data for advertising purposes at any time.

2.  During your visit to our website automatically collected data

In addition to the data you provide voluntarily, we also automatically collect data each time you visit our websites. These data are required to improve the seamless performance of this website and, in order to directly provide you with certain information and links to third parties. Please find in the following a detailed description of all programs used on our website, their purpose as well as the different categories of collected data.

Most of the programs on our websites use so-called ‘cookies’ to collect data. Cookies are small text files that are automatically saved by your browser and stored on your device (computer, tablet, smartphone etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not damage your device. The purpose of cookies is to make our website more user-friendly and effective. For example, cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you re-visit our website, thereby ensuring that your personal settings from earlier visits remain unchanged. We also use cookies in order to statistically evaluate the use of our website, and to optimise our offers (e.g. Google Analytics). All cookies are automatically deleted after a certain defined period of time.

Processing is necessary for the aforementioned purposes and the purposes of our own legitimate interests and those of third parties, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Point f) of the GDPR.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. Generally, you can prevent storage of cookies on your hard drive by selecting “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings. It is also possible to change your browser’s settings so that you will be notified and asked for your consent before a cookie can be placed. Furthermore, previously placed cookies can be removed at any time. For more information on how to remove a cookie, please follow the instructions in your web browser. Please note, however, that any changed cookie settings only apply to the respective device and the browser in which the settings were changed.

Please note, if cookies are disabled or removed, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Detailed information about the data we automatically collect when you visit our website is provided in the following:

 

a.) Log files

During your visit to our website, the browser on your device collects and stores information which is automatically sent to our website’s server. The data is only stored temporarily in a so-called server log file.

As part of this process, the following information is automatically collected: IP address, date and time of access, if applicable, name and URL of the accessed file, if applicable, originating website (referrer URL), browser used and, if applicable, your computer’s operating system as well as the name of your access provider.

We process the aforementioned data for administrative purposes, in order to optimise the performance of our website, and to guarantee user-friendliness. Additionally, the data is also processed to ensure our system works safely and securely.

Your IP address, i.e. the only data that could identify you, will be deleted or anonymised immediately so that we will not be able to link you to your activity on our website. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 Point 1 of the GDPR.

You can prevent placement of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software. In addition, you can prevent collection of data by the cookie, i.e. data related to your use of our website as well as the processing of this data through Google, by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

b.) Google Analytics

For the improvement and further development of our website and services, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereafter referred to as “Google”). Google uses “cookies” to create pseudonymous user profiles. The information generated by the cookie contains information about your use of our website, such as the browser type/version, the operating system, the previously visited page (referrer URL), the host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including IP address) is transmitted and saved to a server at Google in the US. This information may also be transmitted to third parties if required by law or, if third parties process this data on behalf of the company.

Through the activation of IP address anonymisation on this website, your IP address is shortened by Google beforehand in the Member States of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and be shortened there.

Google uses this information in order to evaluate the use of our website, compile reports on website activities for the website operator and to perform other services associated with website and Internet use. Google will also transmit this data to third parties if necessary, insofar as it is required by law or the third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Third parties, including Google, advertise on the Internet. They use the stored cookies to place adverts based on the user’s previous visits to the website.

Google does not combine your IP address with other data. You can prevent cookies being saved to your computer by changing the settings in your browser software. However, if you do so you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website.

You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin found at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

You can find more information on deactivation on the website for deactivating Google ads or on the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative.

The data collection and storage can be objected to at any time with effect for the future. You can find further information on Google’s regulations here.

Storage of aforementioned data is based on our interest in evaluating the information in order to continuously further develop our website and services, and therefore also on Art. 6 Para. 1 Point f) of the GDPR.
