Cookies and right to object to direct advertising


"Cookies" are small files that are stored on the user's computer. Different data can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after the user's visit to an online service. Temporary cookies, or "session cookies" or "transient cookies", are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. The content of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status, for example, can be stored in such a cookie. Cookies are referred to as "permanent" or "persistent" and remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days. The interests of the users can also be stored in such a cookie, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. "Third-Party-Cookie" are cookies that are offered by other providers than the responsible person who operates the online service (otherwise, if they are only their cookies, one speaks of "First-Party Cookies").

 

We may use temporary and permanent cookies and explain this in our privacy policy.

 

If we ask users for their consent to the use of cookies (e.g. in the context of a cookie agreement), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. DSGVO. Otherwise, the personal cookies of the users will be processed in accordance with the following explanations within the framework of this data protection declaration on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of the German Data Protection Act).

If users do not wish cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.

A general objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes can be raised for a large number of services, especially in the case of tracking, via the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by switching them off in the browser settings. Please note that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used.

 

Deletion of data

If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons.

We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our data protection declaration. We will adapt the data protection declaration as soon as the changes to the data processing carried out by us make this necessary.

Business-related processing

 

In addition, we process

  • Payment data (e.g., Bank account details, payment history)

The processed data includes inventory data, communication data, contract data, payment data and those affected by the processing belong to our customers, prospects and other business partners. Processing is for the purpose of providing contractual services in the context of operating an online shop, billing, delivery and customer service.

Processing takes place in order to fulfill our services and to carry out contractual measures (for example, carrying out order processes) and insofar as required by law (for example, legally required archiving of business transactions for trading and tax purposes). The information marked as required for the establishment and fulfillment of the contract is required. We disclose the data to third parties only in the context of extradition, payment or legal permissions and obligations, as well as if this is based on our legitimate interests, which we inform you in the context of this privacy policy (eg, to legal and tax consultants, Financial institutions, freight companies and public authorities).

 

Users can optionally create a user account, in particular by being able to view their orders. As part of the registration, the required mandatory information will be communicated to the users. The user accounts are not public and can not be indexed by search engines. If users have terminated their user account, their data will be deleted with respect to the user account, subject to their retention is necessary for commercial or tax reasons. Information in the customer's account remains until its deletion with subsequent archiving in the case of a legal obligation or our legitimate interests (for example, in the case of litigation). It is the responsibility of the users to secure their data upon termination prior to the end of the contract.

 

As part of the registration and re-registration and use of our online services, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the user's protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. A transfer of these data to third parties does not take place, unless it is necessary for the pursuit of our legal claims as a legitimate interest or there is a legal obligation to do so.

 

The deletion takes place after expiration of legal warranty and other contractual rights or obligations (for example, payment entitlements or performance obligations from contracts with customers), whereby the necessity of keeping the data is checked every three years; in the case of storage due to legal archiving obligations, the deletion takes place after its expiration.

 

External Payment Service Providers


We use external payment service providers whose platforms allow users and we to make payment transactions. These payment service providers may include, in each case with a link to the Privacy Policy:

 

Paypal (https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full)

Google Analytics

 

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about users' use of the website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.


Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online services by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online service and to provide us with other services associated with the use of this online service and the Internet. Pseudonymous user profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. 


We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. 

 

The IP address submitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

 

As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on the "Opt Out of GA" button at the bottom of the page to prevent Google Analytics from entering this website in the future. An opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies, you must click this link again.

 

If we ask the users for their consent (e.g. in the context of a cookie agreement), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. DSGVO. Otherwise, the personal data of the user will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online service within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of the German Data Protection Act). DSGVO) processed.

 

Where data is processed in the United States, we would like to point out that Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby warrants compliance with European data protection laws (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options, can be found in Google's privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy) as well as in the settings for the display of advertising by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

Users' personal data will be deleted or anonymized after 14 months.

 

Google AdWords and Conversion Measurement

 

We use Google's online AdWords marketing tool "AdWords" to place ads on the Google advertising network (e.g., in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) so that they are displayed to users who have a suspected interest in the ads. This allows us to more specifically display ads for and within our online offering so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. If for example a user sees advertisements for products he's been looking for on other online offers, this is called remarketing. For these purposes, upon access to our and other websites where the Google Advertising Network is active, Google will immediately execute a Google code and become so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as " Web beacons ") incorporated into the website. With their help, the user is provided with an individual cookie,that means a small file is saved (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). In this file it is noted which websites the user visited, their content interest and what offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer.

 

Furthermore, we receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained through the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only receive information about the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. We do not receive any information that personally identifies users.

 

The data of the users are pseudonym processed within the Google advertising network. That means Google stores and processes for example not the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. That means from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has explicitly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States.

 

If we ask users for consent (for example in the context of a cookie consent), the legal basis of this processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a. DSGVO. Otherwise, the personal data of the users are processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO).

 

As far as data is processed in the USA, Please note that Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, and thereby assures that it complies with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
