II. Rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right to

  • to confirmation as to whether data concerning them is being processed, to information about the data being processed, to further information about the data processing and to copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 DSGVO);
  • to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 DSGVO);
  • to the immediate erasure of the data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 GDPR), or, alternatively, insofar as further processing is required pursuant to Art. 17 (3) GDPR, to restriction of processing in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR;
  • to receive the data concerning them and provided by them and to transfer this data to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
  • to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority if they are of the opinion that the data concerning them is being processed by the provider in breach of data protection provisions (cf. also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addition, the Provider is obliged to inform all recipients to whom data has been disclosed by the Provider about any correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing that takes place on the basis of Articles 16, 17 (1), 18 DSGVO. However, this obligation does not exist insofar as this notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Notwithstanding the above, the user has a right to information about these recipients.

Likewise, users and data subjects have the right to object to the future processing of data concerning them in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, insofar as the data is processed by the provider in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing is permitted.

III. Information on data processing

Your data processed during the use of our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations and no other information on individual processing procedures is provided below.

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider. With these so-called server log files, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you have accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our website takes place are collected.

The data collected in this way is stored temporarily, but not together with other data from you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

The data will be deleted again after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidentiary purposes. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until final clarification of an incident.

Cookies

Contract processing

The data provided by you for the use of our goods and/or services are processed by us for the purpose of contract execution and are necessary to this extent. Conclusion and execution of the contract are not possible without the provision of your data.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

We delete the data when the contract has been fully processed, but must observe the retention periods under tax and commercial law.

Within the scope of contract processing, we pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of the goods or to the financial service provider, insofar as the transfer is necessary for the delivery of the goods or for payment purposes.

The legal basis for the transfer of the data is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Customer account / registration function

If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will collect and store the data you entered during registration (e.g. your name, address or e-mail address) exclusively for pre-contractual services, for the fulfillment of the contract or for the purpose of customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders with us or to be able to offer you the so-called notepad function). At the same time, we then store the IP address and the date of your registration along with the time. Of course, this data will not be passed on to third parties.

In the course of the further registration process, your consent to this processing will be obtained and reference will be made to this data protection declaration. The data collected by us in this process will be used exclusively for the provision of the customer account. 

Insofar as you consent to this processing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing.

If the opening of the customer account also serves pre-contractual measures or the fulfillment of the contract, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you may revoke your consent to the opening and maintenance of the customer account at any time with effect for the future. To do this, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

The data collected in this respect will be deleted as soon as processing is no longer necessary. However, we must observe retention periods under tax and commercial law.

Newsletter

If you register for our free newsletter, the data you requested for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and - optionally - your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time, we store the IP address of the Internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. During the further registration process, we will ask for your consent to send you the newsletter, describe the content in detail and refer to this privacy policy. We use the data collected in this process exclusively for sending the newsletter - in particular, they are therefore not passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. To do so, you simply need to inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter.

Contact requests / contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request - without their provision, we can not answer your request or at best limited.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been answered conclusively and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data, e.g. in the case of subsequent contract processing.

Online job applications / publication of job advertisements

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us via our website. For these digital applications, your applicant and application data will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application process.

The legal basis for this processing is Section 26 (1) p. 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 (1) DSGVO. Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.

If an employment contract is concluded after the application process, we will store the data you provided during the application in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organizational and administrative process - this, of course, in compliance with the more extensive legal obligations.

The legal basis for this processing is also Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 (1) DSGVO. Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.

If an application is rejected, we automatically delete the data provided to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the data will not be deleted if it is required to be stored for a longer period of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to statutory provisions, e.g. due to the obligation to provide evidence in accordance with the AGG.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO and § 24 (1) No. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defense or enforcement.

If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be further processed based on your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO by declaration to us with effect for the future.

Raffle

We offer you the opportunity to participate in competitions via our website. If you participate in one of our competitions, the data you enter when participating will be processed without your further consent, but of course exclusively for the implementation and processing of the respective competition.

In the context of the processing of the competition, we will pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of the goods or to a financial service provider, insofar as the transfer is necessary for the delivery or payment of your prize. If your data is published in the event of a win, you will be informed of this as part of the declaration of consent.

The legal basis for the transfer of the data is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent to the processing of data for participation in our competitions at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

Instagram

To advertise our products and services and to communicate with interested parties or customers, we operate a company presence on the Instagram platform.

On this social media platform, we are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.

Instagram's data protection officer can be reached via a contact form:

https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/540977946302970

We have regulated the joint responsibility in an agreement regarding the respective obligations within the meaning of the GDPR. This agreement, from which the mutual obligations arise, is available under the following link:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum

The legal basis for the processing of personal data that takes place as a result and is reproduced below is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is the analysis, communication, sales and promotion of our products and services.

The legal basis may also be the user's consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO vis-à-vis the platform operator. The user can revoke this consent for the future at any time by notifying the platform operator in accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO.

When calling up our online presence on the Instagram platform, data of the user (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.) is processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. as operator of the platform in the EU.

This user data is used for statistical information about the use of our company presence on Instagram. Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes and to create profiles of the users. Based on these profiles, it is possible for Facebook Ireland Ltd., for example, to advertise users within and outside of Instagram based on their interests. If the user is logged into his account on Instagram at the time of the call, Facebook Ireland Ltd. can also link the data with the respective user account.

If the user contacts us via Instagram, the personal data entered by the user on this occasion will be used to process the request. The user's data will be deleted by us, provided that the user's inquiry has been conclusively answered and there are no legal storage obligations, e.g. in the case of a subsequent contract processing, to the contrary.

Cookies may also be set by Facebook Ireland Ltd. to process the data.

If the user does not agree to this processing, it is possible to prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser accordingly. Cookies that have already been stored can also be deleted at any time. The settings for this depend on the respective browser. In the case of Flash cookies, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings, but by the corresponding setting of the Flash player. If the user prevents or restricts the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of Facebook can be fully used.

More details about the processing activities, their prevention and the deletion of the data processed by Instagram can be found in Instagram's data policy:

https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875

It is not excluded that processing by Facebook Ireland Ltd. also takes place via Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025 in the USA.

Linking social media via graphic or text link

We also advertise on our website presences on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents a connection to the respective server of the social network from being automatically established when a website with a social media advertisement is called up in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic will the user be redirected to the service of the respective social network.

After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way is processed in the USA.

This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the specific visit of the user to the personal account of the user. If the user interacts via a "Share" button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user's personal user account and may be published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. In addition, it is possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. This function allows Google to truncate the IP address within the EU or EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data may also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it does not associate your IP address with any other data. In addition, Google keeps under

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners

The data protection information is available to you on our website, including information on how to prevent the use of your data.

In addition, Google offers under

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

offers a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with the most common Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about the visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services. If and which other web analytics services are used by us, you will of course also find out in this privacy policy.

Google-Maps

On our website, we use Google Maps to display our location and to create directions. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed.

If you call up the Google Maps component integrated into our website, Google stores a cookie on your end device via your Internet browser. In order to display our location and to create directions, your user settings and data are processed. Here, we cannot exclude that Google uses servers in the USA.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in optimizing the functionality of our website.

The connection to Google established in this way enables Google to determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the directions are to be sent.

If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Details on this can be found above under the item "Cookies".

In addition, the use of Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps takes place in accordance with the Google-Nutzungsbedingungen https://policies.google.com/terms?gl=DE&hl=de and the Terms and conditions for Google Maps https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.

Furthermore Google offers under

further information.

Google Fonts

On our website, we use Google Fonts to display external fonts. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization and economic operation of our website.

Through the connection to Google established when you call up our website, Google can determine from which website your request has been sent and to which IP address the display of the font is to be transmitted.

Google offers under

https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated

https://policies.google.com/privacy

further information, in particular on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

YouTube

We use YouTube on our website. This is a video portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as "YouTube".

YouTube ist ein Tochterunternehmen der Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, nachfolgend nur „Google“ genannt.

Wir nutzen YouTube im Zusammenhang mit der Funktion „Erweiterter Datenschutzmodus“, um Ihnen Videos anzeigen zu können. Rechtsgrundlage ist Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Unser berechtigtes Interesse liegt in der Qualitätsverbesserung unseres Internetauftritts. Die Funktion „Erweiterter Datenschutzmodus“ bewirkt laut Angaben von YouTube, dass die nachfolgend noch näher bezeichneten Daten nur dann an den Server von YouTube übermittelt werden, wenn Sie ein Video auch tatsächlich starten.

Without this "Enhanced Privacy", a connection to the YouTube server in the USA is established as soon as you call up one of our Internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is necessary in order to display the respective video on our website via your internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time, and the website you visited. In addition, a connection to Google's advertising network "DoubleClick" is established.

If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.

For the purpose of functionality and analysis of user behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your end device via your Internet browser. If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option to prevent the storage of cookies by a setting in your Internet browser. You can find more information on this above under "Cookies".

Google provides further information on the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in the information available at

https://policies.google.com/privacy

data protection information that can be downloaded from our website.

jQuery CDN

In order to optimize the retrieval speed, design and presentation of the content of our website on different end devices, we use the service

jQuery CDN, a content delivery network ("CDN"). This is a service provided by the jQuery Foundation, hereinafter referred to as just "jQuery". jQuery is distributed for the JS Foundation via the StackPath CDN.

In order to be able to deliver the content of our website quickly, the service uses so-called JavaScript libraries. In the process, corresponding files are loaded from the CDN server, insofar as they are not already available in your browser cache due to a visit to another website. In the case of a connection to the CDN server, your IP address is recorded. It cannot be ruled out that a connection is made to a server outside the EU.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the acceleration of the loading times of our website and its optimization.

To prevent the execution of the Java Script code of jQuery altogether, you can install a so-called Java Script blocker, such as noscript.net or ghostery.com. However, if you prevent or restrict the execution of the Java Script code, for technical reasons this may mean that not all content and functions of our website are available.
