3. Definition of terms

The privacy policy is based on the terms used by the European legislature in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for the public, our customers and our business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain in advance the terminology used here.

 

The following special terms are used in this privacy policy:

1. Personal data

 Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered to be identifiable when the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this person can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features.

2. Data Subject

 Data Subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).

3. Processing

 Processing refers to any process or series of operations related to personal data (such as collecting, collecting, organizing, organizing, storing, adapting or modifying, reading, querying, using, with or without the aid of automated procedures, disclosure by submission, dissemination or other form of provisioning, comparing or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction).

4. Restriction of processing

 Restriction of processing refers to the marking of stored personal data with the intent to limit its processing.

5. Profiling

 Profiling refers to any kind of automated processing of personal data which evaluates that personal information to analyse or predict personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular relating to job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocations of that natural person.

6. Pseudonymisation

 Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific affected person without additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

7. Processor

 The processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

8. Recipient

 Recipient is a natural or legal person, agency or other entity to whom personal data is disclosed (regardless of whether it is a third party). However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union or national laws in connection with a particular mission are not considered as recipients.

9. Third party

 A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor or the persons authorized under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor to process the personal data.

10. Consent

Consent is any permission voluntarily issued and unambiguously expressed in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirmatory act by the affected person for the particular case, by which the affected person indicates that they consent to the processing of the personal data concerning them.

 

4. Lawfulness of processing

Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item b of the GDPR. The same applies to those processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation where a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, this processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item c of the GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then this processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item d of the GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item f of the GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European Union legislator. In this respect, European Union legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR).

 

5. Technology

5.1 SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that there is a "https://" instead of a "http://" in the address line of the browser and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

5.2 Data acquisition when visiting the website

When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transfer information to us, we only collect data that your browser transfers to our server (in "server log files"). Our website collects various general data and information each time a web page is accessed by you or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be collected

  1. browser types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (known as referrer),
  4. the subsites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time of an access to the website,
  6. an Internet Protocol (IP) address,
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is needed

  1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  2. to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
  3. to ensure the long-term operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack.

This collected data and information is statistically evaluated by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure the best protection for the personal data being processed. The data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 sub-item f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interests stems from the data collection purposes listed above.

5.4 Encrypted payment transactions

If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to provide us with your payment data (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorisation), this data will be required for handling of payments.

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

 

6. Transfer of data to third parties

There is no transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We shall only share your personal information with third parties if:

  1. According to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR, you have given your express consent,
  2. The transfer is permitted pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 sub-item f of the GDPR to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have a predominantly legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
  3. In the event that transfer of the data, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 sub-item c of the GDPR, is a legal obligation,
  4. This is legally permissible and, according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 sub-item b of the GDPR, is required for the settlement of contractual relationships with you.

8. Contents of our website

8.1 Data processing when opening a customer account and for contract processing

Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item b of the GDPR, personal data is collected and processed if you provide it to us for the performance of a contract or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. Deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done by sending a message to the above address of the controller. We store and use the data you provide for contract processing. After processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account is complete, your data will be blocked with regard to tax and commercial law retention periods and deleted after expiry of these periods, unless you have expressly consented to a further use of your data or a legally permitted further use of data has been reserved by us, about which we inform you accordingly below.

8.2 Data processing for order processing

The personal data collected by us will be passed on to the transport company commissioned with the delivery as part of the contract processing, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods. We pass on your payment data to the commissioned credit institution within the framework of payment processing, insofar as this is required for handling of payments. If payment service providers are used, we explicitly inform about this below. The legal basis for the transfer of data is here Article 6 paragraph 1 sub-item b of the GDPR.

8.3 Conclusion of contract for contract processing / shipment of goods

We transfer personal data to third parties only if this is necessary as part of contract processing, such as to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the credit institution entrusted with the handling of payments. A further transfer of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to the transfer. No data will be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item b of the GDPR, which permits the data processing for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

8.4 Contact / Contact form

Personal data is collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected in the case of a contact form can be seen from the particular contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 sub-item f of the GDPR. If your contact with us aims to conclude a contract, then an additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sub-item b of the GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request, this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary.

8.5 Application management / job exchange

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. This processing may also be carried out electronically. This is especially the case if an applicant sends us the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transferred data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legislation. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part prevent deletion. Other legitimate interest as defined here is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

In this regard, the data processing is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item f GDPR.

 

9. Newsletter mailings

9.1 Newsletter mailings to existing customers

If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to periodically e-mail you offers for goods or services similar to those you have already purchased from our product line. In accordance with Section 7 (3) of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG), we do not need to obtain separate consent from you for this. In this regard, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item f GDPR. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you any e-mail. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the controller named at the beginning. You will only incur communication costs in accordance with the base rates. Upon receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will cease immediately.

9.2 Advertising newsletter

On our website, you are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. Which personal data are transferred to us when ordering the newsletter, results from the input mask used for this purpose.

We inform our customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about our offers. Our company’s newsletter can be received by you in principle only if

  1. You have a valid e-mail address and
  2. You have registered for the newsletter mailings.

For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address you entered for the first time for the newsletter mailings using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to verify that you, as the owner of the e-mail address, have authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the IT system you are using at the time of registration, as assigned by your Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of your e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves our legal protection.

The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary to operate the newsletter service or a related registration, as would be the case if there were changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. Personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. You may terminate the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that you have given us for the newsletter mailings can be revoked at any time. There is a link in each newsletter to revoke consent. Furthermore, there is an option directly on our website to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailings at any time or you can inform us of this in another way.

The legal basis for data processing for the purpose of sending newsletters is Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

9.3 CleverReach

This website uses CleverReach for sending newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service that can be used to organise and analyse newsletter mailings. The data you enter to receive the newsletter (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany or Ireland.

Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Here, among other things, we are able to analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often a particular link in the newsletter was clicked. With the use of “conversion tracking”, we are also able to analyse whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis through CleverReach newsletters, please visit: www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you do not wish CleverReach to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. There is a link in each newsletter message for this purpose. In addition, you can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

You can revoke the consent you have given at any time. You can also prevent this processing at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. You can also prevent the storage of cookies by making this setting in your web browser. You can also prevent the storage and transfer of personal data by deactivating JavaScript in your web browser or installing a JavaScript blocker (e.g. noscript.net or www.ghostery.com). We would like to point out that these measures may mean that not all functions of our website are available.

The data you provide to receive the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.

For more details, please see CleverReach's privacy policy at: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/datenschutz/.

 

10. Our activities in social networks

We are represented in social networks with our own pages, so that we can also communicate with you through social networks and inform you about our services.

We are not the original provider (controller) of these pages, but merely use them based on the options offered to us by the respective providers.

 Therefore, as a precaution, we point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use may therefore pose data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights, e.g. to be informed, to erasure, to object, etc., and data processing within the social networks is often carried out directly for advertising purposes or to analyse user behaviour by the providers, without us being able to influence this. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behaviour is directly assigned to your own member profile of the social networks (if you are logged in here).

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

As we do not have access to the providers' databases, we would like to point out that it is best to assert your rights (e.g. to be informed, to rectification, to erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. For the respective provider of social networks used by us, we have listed below further information on the processing of your data in the social networks and the possibility to make use of your right to object or of revocation (so-called opt-out):

12. Advertising

12.1 Google Ads 

Our website uses the Google Ads functionality, we use these functions to advertise this website in Google search results, as well as on third-party websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Google therefore sets a cookie in the browser of your terminal device, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID and on the basis of the pages you visit.

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

Additional data processing will only take place if you have consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalise ads you view on the web. In this case, if you are logged in to Google while visiting our website, Google uses your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing. Your personal data is temporarily linked by Google with Google Analytics data in order to form target groups.

You can permanently disable the setting of cookies for ad preferences by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/

13. Partner and affiliate programs

13.1 DoubleClick

This website contains components of DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick is a brand of Google (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), under which special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.

DoubleClick by Google transfers data to the DoubleClick server when clicks or other activities occur. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on your IT system. The purpose of the cookie is to optimise and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to place and display user-relevant advertising and to generate reports on or improve advertising campaigns. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid the same advertisement from displaying multiple times.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to process the technical procedure. The cookie ID is needed, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which ads have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid showing them twice. Furthermore, the cookie ID makes it possible for DoubleClick to record conversions.

According to Google, a cookie from DoubleClick does not contain any personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier is used to identify the campaigns with which you have already encountered.

Each time you call up one of the individual pages of this website that is operated by us and on which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, the Internet browser on your IT system is caused by the respective DoubleClick component to transfer data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by DoubleClick and our website at any time by making the appropriate setting in your internet browser. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time in the user's web browser or using other software programs.

The storage of cookies can also be prevented by blocking cookies from "www.googleadservices.com" in the settings of your web browser (https://www.google.de/settings/ads). Please note that this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies. In addition, interest-based ads can be deactivated using the link www.aboutads.info/choices. This setting is also deleted when you delete your cookies

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at www.google.com/intl/de/policies/.

 

14. Plugins and other services

14.1 Google Maps

On our website, we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps to visually represent geographical information. By using this service, our location, for example, can be shown to you to make a possible journey easier.

Already when calling up those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish this data to be assigned to your profile at Google, you must log out of your Google user account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them.

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If you do not agree with the future transfer of your data to Google when using Google Maps, you also have the option to completely disable the Google Maps web service by turning off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and therefore the map display on this website can then not be used.

You can view Google's terms of use at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html and the additional terms of use for Google Maps at www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html

Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website ("Google Privacy Policy"): www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

14.2 Google WebFonts

Our website uses web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

The browser you use must connect to Google's servers to do this. This gives Google knowledge that our website was accessed by your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website.

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

For more information on Google Web Fonts, please visit developers.google.com/fonts/faq and see Google's privacy policy: www.google.com/policies/privacy/

We use the image service Google Photos to integrate photo galleries. Your IP address is transferred to the provider Google (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, please refer to Google's privacy policy https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.  

14.4 YouTube (videos)

We have integrated components from YouTube on this website. YouTube is an internet video portal that allows video publishers to freely upload video clips which other users may view, rate and comment on for free. YouTube enables the publication of all types of videos, including complete film and television broadcasts, music videos, trailers and user-made videos.

YouTube's operating company is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Each time you access one of the pages of this website operated by us on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on your IT system is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download an icon of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google become aware of the specific sub-page of our website that has been visited by you.

If the affected person is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises that, by fetching a sub-page containing a YouTube video, a specific sub-page of our website was visited by you. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and associated with your YouTube account.

YouTube and Google always receive information through the YouTube component that you have visited our website if that person is simultaneously logged into YouTube when they access our website. This happens regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If you do not wish this information to be transferred to YouTube and Google, you can prevent the data transfer by logging out of your YouTube account before calling up our website.

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sub-item a of the GDPR.

YouTube's privacy policy, available at www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, identifies the collection, processing, and use of personally identifiable information by YouTube and Google.
