General information on data processing

We collect and use personal data from our users only to the extent necessary for providing a functional website as well as our content and products/​services. The collection and use of our users personal data takes generally place with the user’s consent. An exception is made in cases where it is actually impossible to obtain prior consent and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory regulations.

Legal basis for the processing of your data:

  • In cases where we obtain consent from data subjects for processing operations on personal data, Art. 6(1) a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the basis.
  • When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6(1) b of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out steps prior to entering into a contract.
  • In cases where processing of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation which our company is subject to, Art. 6(1) c of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
  • In cases where vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal information, Art. 6(1) d of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
  • If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not override the interests of the former, Art. 6(1) f of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing.

In particular, legitimate interests may include:

  • Replying to enquiries;
  • Carrying out direct marketing measures;
  • Provision of services and/​or information intended for you;
  • The processing and transfer of personal data for internal and/​or administrative purposes;
  • The operation and administration of our website;
  • The technical support of users;
  • Avoiding and detecting cases of fraud and crimes;
  • Protecting against non-payment by obtaining credit reports in the case of enquiries regarding deliveries and performance; and or
  • Ensuring network and data security, provided that these interests comply with the corresponding applicable laws and the rights and freedoms of the user;

Usage data/​server log files

Each time our webpages are accessed, our systems automatically collect data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. In this case, the following types of data are collected: Browser type, version used, operating system of the user, internet service provider, IP address of the user, date and time accessed, websites from which the user’s system are directed to our website or which the user is directed to from our website. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art.6(1) f of the GDPR with the aforementioned legitimate interests.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to make it possible for the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain saved for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files takes place to ensure the functionality of the website. Furthermore, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the safety of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. These purposes also justify our legitimate interests to perform data processing pursuant to Art. 6(1) f of the GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose of their collection. In the case of the collection of the data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is terminated. The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Furthermore, we reserve the right to review the files when concrete indications exist which point to a justified suspicion of unlawful use or a specific attack on the pages. In this case, it is within our legitimate interests to perform processing for the purposes of clarifying the issue and the criminal prosecution of such attacks and unlawful use.

Cookies

We use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored in the internet browser and/​or by the internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user accesses a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters which makes it possible to uniquely identify the browser when the website is accessed again in future. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. A number of elements of our website make it necessary to be able to identify the accessing browser even after switching to a different page. In this case, the following data is stored in the cookies and transmitted: Language settings, items in a shopping cart, login information etc.

Furthermore, on some of our websites, we also use cookies which make it possible to analyse the surfing behaviour of users. In this manner, search terms entered, the frequency of pages accessed, the use of website functions etc. are transmitted. The data on users collected in this fashion are pseudonymised via technical measures. Hence, it is no longer possible to reference the data to the accessing user. The data will not be stored with the user’s other personal data.

Legal basis for data processing via cookies: The legal basis for the processing of personal data via the use of cookies is Art. 6(1) f GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data via the use of technically necessary cookies is Art. 6(1) f GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data via the use of cookies for purposes of analysis, provided that the corresponding consent has been obtained from the user, is Art. 6(1) a GDPR.

The purpose of the use of technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. A number of the functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these functions, it is necessary for the browser to be recognised again even after switching to a different page. We require cookies for the provision of the shopping cart, applying language settings, remembering search terms etc. The use of the analysis cookies takes places with the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. Via the analysis cookies, we find out how the website is used, allowing us to constantly optimise our offerings. These purposes also justify our legitimate interests to perform data processing. When our website is accessed, the user is informed of the use of cookies for the purposes of analysis and his consent obtained for the processing of the personal data used in this context. Reference to this privacy statement is also made in this context. Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted from it to our website. Hence, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. By modifying the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies which have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also take place in an automated fashion. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use the full extent of all functions of the website. You can manage cookies from a number of US companies via the American website http://​www​.aboutads​.info/​c​h​o​ices/ or the EU website http://​www​.youron​line​choic​es​.com/​u​k​/​y​o​u​r​-​a​d​-​c​h​o​ices/.

Transmission of data via the internet

The transmission of data via the internet generally involves certain risks. Deliberate encryption of the data does not take place; in particular, messages from the contact form of our website and messages in the service chat are transmitted unencrypted.

Please bear this in mind when transmitting data. If you would like to communicate with us via encrypted e‑mail, this can be done via S/MIME encryption. Please specifically request this encryption from us, as we generally send messages unencrypted due to the currently low market penetration of e‑mail encryption procedures.

Disclosure of data

When you provide personal data, it is only disclosed to third parties to the extent necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship or other legal grounds legitimise this disclosure. However, we provide certain services with the assistance of service providers. We have carefully selected these service providers and taken corresponding measures to protect your personal data.

Storage durations

The personal data of the data subjects are deleted or rendered unavailable as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Furthermore, storage may also take place when this is provided for via European or national legislation in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions which the controller is subject to. The data is also rendered unavailable or deleted when a prescribed storage duration mandated by the specified standards expires, unless there exists a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion of a contract or the fulfilment of a contract.
