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);

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.

Cookie Manager

To obtain consent for the use of technically unnecessary cookies on the website, the provider uses a cookie manager.

When the website is called up, a cookie with the setting information is stored on the user's terminal device so that the query relating to consent does not have to be made on a subsequent visit.

The cookie is required to obtain legally compliant consent from the user.

The user can prevent or terminate the installation of cookies by changing the settings of his browser.

Cookies

a) Session cookies/session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your end device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies data are processed for contract initiation or contract execution.

If the processing does not serve the initiation or execution of a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

When you close your Internet browser, these session cookies are deleted.

b) Third-party cookies

Where applicable, cookies from partner companies with which we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website are also used with our website.

The details of this, in particular the purposes and legal bases of the processing of such third-party cookies, please refer to the following information.

c) Elimination possibility

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by setting your internet browser. Likewise, you can delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on your specific Internet browser used. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you use. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

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 this, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

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.

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 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 privacy policy. 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. For this purpose, 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.

User contributions, comments and ratings

We offer you the opportunity to publish questions, answers, opinions or ratings, hereinafter referred to as "contributions", on our website. If you make use of this offer, we will process and publish your contribution, the date and time of submission as well as the pseudonym used by you, if applicable.

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 at any time with effect for the future. To do this, you only need to inform us of your revocation.

In addition, we also process your IP and e-mail address. The IP address is processed because we have a legitimate interest in initiating or supporting further action if your contribution infringes the rights of third parties and/or it is otherwise unlawful.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the possibly necessary legal defense.

Checking creditworthiness and scoring

Insofar as we offer you the basic option of payment by invoice as part of our range of goods or services and you make use of this option, we reserve the right to obtain credit information from a credit agency (such as Creditreform, Schufa, Bürgel or infoscore) on the basis of mathematical-statistical methods. For this purpose, your data, insofar as they are relevant to the contract, such as your name and address, will be forwarded to the credit agency. We use the subsequent information about the statistical probability of non-payment for our decision whether to offer you payment by invoice.

The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest in the fail-safe nature of the receivable pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 lit. f) DSGVO.

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 temporarily stored, 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.

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.

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.

Cookiebot

We use "Cookiebot" as our "cookie banner". "Cookiebot" is a product of Cybot A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark, hereinafter "Cybot".

The encrypted key and the cookie status are stored by means of a cookie on the user's terminal device in order to establish the corresponding cookie status when the page is called up in the future. This cookie is automatically deleted after 12 months.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is the user-friendliness of the website as well as the fulfillment of the legal requirements of the DSGVO.

The installation of the cookie as well as its storage, and thus its cookie consent, can be prevented or terminated by the user at any time through browser settings.

The use serves to protect the legitimate interests of ours in an optimal marketing by enabling a secure purchase in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests.

The trust badge is provided as part of a joint responsibility by a US CDN provider (content delivery network). An appropriate level of data protection is ensured by standard data protection clauses and other contractual measures. Further information on the data protection of Trusted Shops GmbH is available at the following link: https://www.trustedshops.de/impressum-datenschutz/#datenschutz

When the website is called up, the Trusted Shops web server records the visitor's IP address, the date and time of the call-up, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) in order to display the information called up. In addition, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains the IP address, date and time of the retrieval, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the retrieval. The IP address is anonymized immediately after collection so that the stored data cannot be assigned to the visitor. The anonymized data is used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.

After the order is completed, the e-mail address specified in the order is transmitted to Trusted Shops GmbH. The transfer takes place with a cryptological hash function, so that it is not possible to reconstruct the e-mail address from the generated hash.
