III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we only process personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is required by legal regulations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

IV. Rights of the data subject

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the controller:

1. Right of access

You may request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by him.

If there is such processing, you may request information from the controller about the following:

  • The purposes for which the personal data are processed;
  • the categories of personal data which are processed;
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
  • the planned duration of the storage of the personal data relating to you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;
  • the existence of a right to obtain the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to obtain the restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  • any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22 (1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information on whether the personal data concerning you are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.

2. Right of rectification

You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller if the personal data processed concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. The controller must make the rectification without undue delay.

3. Right to restriction of processing

You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:

  • if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  • the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
  • the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing but you need them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
  • if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the controller’s legitimate grounds override your grounds.

Where the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to delete

You may request the controller to erase the personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller is obliged to erase such data without undue delay if one of the following reasons applies:

  • The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
  • The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data concerning you has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8 (1) of the GDPR.

b) Information to third parties

If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17 (1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested them to erase all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data.

c) Exceptions

The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary

  • for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information.
  • for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
  • for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) h and i and Art. 9 (3) GDPR;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
  • for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

  • the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR and
  • the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

7. Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (1) e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

9. Automated decision-making in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects vis-à-vis you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

  • is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
  • is permitted under Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  • is done with your explicit consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 (1) of the GDPR, unless Art. 9 (2) (a) or (b) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in 1. and 3. above, the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.

V. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

  • Information about the browser type and the version used.
  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s internet service provider
  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

This data is stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 (1) S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest.  Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of 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. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

VI. Use of Cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user calls up a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change.

The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

  • Language settings

We also use cookies on our website that enable an analysis of the user’s surfing behaviour.

The following data can be transmitted in this way:

  • Frequency of page views

The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. It is therefore no longer possible to allocate the data to the calling user. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Purpose of data processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary that the browser is recognised even after a page change.

We require cookies for the following applications:

  • Acceptance of language settings

The user data collected through technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.

Analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimise our offer.

By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

XII. Hosting

The website is hosted on servers by a service provider commissioned by us.

Our service provider is:

Hetzner Online GmbH, 
Industriestr. 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, 
Deutschland

The servers automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits when you visit the website. The information stored is:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Date and time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources. The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

We have concluded an order processing contract with the relevant service provider, in which we oblige the relevant service provider to protect user data and not to disclose it to third parties. 

The website server is geographically located in Germany.

XIII. Geotargeting

We use the IP address and other information provided by the user (in particular postcode in the context of registration or ordering) for regional targeting (so-called “geotargeting”).

Regional targeting is used, for example, to automatically show you regional offers or advertising that are often more relevant to users. The legal basis for the use of the IP address and, if applicable, other information provided by the user (in particular postcode) is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR, based on our interest in ensuring more precise targeting and thus providing offers and advertising with higher relevance for users.

In this context, part of the IP address and the additional information provided by the user (in particular postcode) are merely read out and not stored separately.

You can prevent geotargeting by using, for example, a VPN or proxy server that prevents precise localisation. In addition, depending on the browser used, you can also deactivate location localisation in the corresponding browser settings (insofar as this is supported by the respective browser).

We use geotargeting on our website for the following purposes:

  • Customer targeting
  • advertising purposes

*(no third country transfer) **(own hosting) ***(adequacy decision)

1. Duration of storage

Your personal information will be stored for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or as required by law, e.g. for tax and accounting purposes.

2. Transfer to third countries

When using the plugins marked with third country transfer or USA, personal data may be transferred to servers in third countries outside the EU, such as the USA. The legal basis for this transfer is consent according to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR. The United States of America does not offer an adequate level of data protection based on a decision of the European Union. The main risk of the transfer lies in the obligation of the plug-in providers to make user data accessible to American authorities under certain circumstances. An order processing agreement with standard contractual clauses is currently in place with all providers in order to make the third-country transfer as data protection-friendly and secure as possible. Adjustments to the ECJ ruling of 16.07.2020 (Schrems II, ref. C-311/18) including additional security measures are currently being sought by us. A copy of the standard data protection clauses can be requested by sending us an informal email. 

3. Revocation and removal option

You have the right to revoke your data protection consent at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the revocation.

You can prevent the collection as well as the processing of your personal data by the respective providers by preventing the storage of third-party cookies on your computer, using the “Do Not Track” function of a supporting browser, deactivating the execution of script code in your browser or installing a script blocker such as NoScript (https://noscript.net/) or Ghostery (https://www.ghostery.com) in your browser.
