General information on data processing

We collect and use personal data from our users strictly 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 generally only takes 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 optimize 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.

Use of 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.

The data on users collected in this fashion are pseudonymized 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 recognized 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 optimize our offerings. These purposes also justify our legitimate interests to perform data processing.

Use of Twitter button

Our website uses plugins and services from Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

When a user accesses a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by it. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to his level of knowledge: By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer.

When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or commenting, the corresponding information is transferred directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://​www​.face​book​.com/​a​b​o​u​t​/​p​r​i​vacy/. If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this offer and link it with his Facebook stored member data, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://​www​.face​book​.com/​s​e​t​t​i​n​g​s​?​t​a​b​=​a​d​s=ads.

In the case of the establishment of contact via e-mail, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The other personal data processed during the sending procedure serve to prevent the abuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
