Use of our website

You can use our website for purely informational purposes without disclosing your identity. When visiting individual website pages in this sense, access data is only provided to our webspace provider in order for us to display our website to you. The following data is processed in connection with this:

·        Browser type / browser version,

·        Operating system used,

·        Browser software language and version,

·        Time and data of access,

·        Host name of the accessing end device,

·        IP address,

·        Request contents (actual website),

·        Access status/HTTP status code,

·        Websites which can be visited from our website,

·        Referrer URL (of the website previously visited),

·        Report as to whether the call-up was successful and

·        Amount of data transferred.

It is necessary to temporarily process this data in order to technically enable the website visit and the provision of the website to your end device. The access data is not used to identify individual users and is not compiled with other data sources. There is further storage of protocol files (log files) in order to guarantee the functionality of the website and the security of IT systems. The legal basis for this processing is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our authorised interests lie in the assurance of the functionality of the website and the integrity of the website security. Storing access data in log files, in particular the IP address, for a long period of time enables us to be able to recognise and defend against misuse. This includes protecting the service against excessive queries or any bot usage. The access data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required in order to achieve the purpose of its processing. Data is recorded for provision on the website if you end your visit to the website. The protocol data is generally stored with direct and sole access for administrators and deleted after seven days. Afterwards it is only available indirectly via the reconstruction of security tapes (backups) and is finally deleted after a maximum of four weeks.

You may submit an objection against the processing. Your right to object consists of reasons which result from your specific situation. You can send us your objection via the contact data stated in the section ‘Responsible providers’.


Cookies

In addition to the previously mentioned access data, when you use the website, cookies are saved in the internet browser of the end device you use. This concerns small text files with a sequence of numbers which are stored locally in the cache of the utilised browser. Cookies are not a component of the PC system and cannot execute programs. Their purpose is to make our website more user-friendly. The use of cookies may be technically necessary or they may be used for other purposes (for example, analysis / evaluation of website usage).


Technically necessary cookies

Some elements of our internet site require that the call-up browser can also be identified after changing sites. The following data is processed in cookies to this end:

·        Language settings,

·        Items in the shopping basket and

·        Log-in information.

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies is not processed to create user profiles. We also use what are referred to as ‘session cookies’, which store a session ID with which different queries from your browser can be assigned to the same session. ‘Session cookies’ are necessary in order to use the website. In particular, we can recognise the end device again if you return to the website. We use this cookie in order to recognise you again during subsequent visits to the website if you have an account with us; otherwise you have to log-in again during every visit. The legal basis for this processing is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f)GDPR. Our authorised interests in the processing lie in providing the specific functionality of the website mentioned, thereby making the website more attractive and effective to use. The ‘session cookies’ are deleted as soon as you log out or, depending on which browser you use and which browser settings you have made, if you close your browser.

You may submit an objection against the processing. Your right to object consists of reasons which result from your specific situation. You can object to the processing of cookies by changing the settings in your internet browser, by deactivating or restricting cookies. Cookies which are already stored in the browser settings can be deleted at any time. You can prevent the use of cookies by opening the browser in ‘private mode’.


Non-technically necessary cookies

We also use cookies on the website in order to enable an analysis of the user’s surfing behaviour. The following data is stored and processed in cookies, among other things:

·        The search term entered,

·        Frequency of site visits,

·        Use of website functions.

The legal basis for this processing is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f)GDPR. Our authorised interests lie in the efficient and attractive design of the website. Non-technically necessary cookies are automatically deleted after a pre-determined period which you can differentiate for each cookie. Insofar as we include third party provider cookies in our web service we will inform you of this separately.

You may submit an objection against the processing. Your right to object consists of reasons which result from your specific situation. You can object to the processing of cookies by changing the settings in your internet browser, by deactivating or restricting cookies. Cookies which are already stored in the browser settings can be deleted at any time. You can prevent the use of cookies by opening the browser in ‘private mode’.


Contacting our company

When contacting our company, for example by e-mail or using the contact form on the website, we process the personal data you provide us with in order to answer your query. It is mandatory to enter your name or a pseudonym and a valid e-mail address in order to process requests via the contact form on the website. Furthermore, when you send a message to us, your IP address and the date and time of the registration are also processed. The legal basis for this processing is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR and art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR, if you are making contact with the intention of concluding a contract. Insofar as the intention of the query is to conclude a contract, your data is required and mandatory for the conclusion of a contract. If you do not provide this data it is not possible to conclude or execute a contract via a contact request or to process the request. The personal data from the entry form is only processed for the contact request. In the even of contact via e-mail, the required authorised interests in the processing of the data are also based on this. Other data processed during the delivery process is used in order to prevent the misuse of the contact form and to ensure the safety of our IT systems. There is no respective dissemination of data to a third party in connection with this. We delete the data in connection with this after processing is no longer required - generally two years after the end of communication - or we restrict the processing, if necessary, in order to comply with the existing mandatory legal retention obligations.

You may submit an objection against the processing. Your right to object consists of reasons which result from your specific situation. You can send us your objection via the contact data stated in the section ‘Responsible providers’.



Processing for contractual purposes

We process your personal data if and insofar as it is required for the initiation, justification, implementation and/or termination of legal business with our company. The legal basis for this results from art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The provision of your data is required in order to conclude a contract and you are contractually obliged to make your data available. If you do not provide your data it is not possible to conclude and/or implement a contract. After the purpose has been achieved (i.e. contract processing), your personal data is blocked or deleted from further processing, insofar as we are not authorised to continue processing your data based on consent issued by you (i.e. consent in processing the e-mail address to send electronic advertising mail), a contractual agreement, a legal authorisation (i.e. authorisation to send direct advertising) or due to authorised interests (i.e. retention for the implementation of claims).

 

·        Your personal data is transmitted to third parties insofar as it is required for the justification, implementation or termination of legal business with our company (i.e. when transmitting data to a payment service provider / dispatch company to process a contract with you), (art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR), or

·        if a sub-contractor or agent who we have deployed solely in the context of the provision of the offer or service requested by you requires this data (such agents are, provided nothing else has been expressly notified, only authorised to process the data insofar as this is necessary for the provision of the offer or services), or

·        there is an enforceable official order (art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c) GDPR), or

·        there is an enforceable legal order (art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c) GDPR), or

·        we are legally obliged to this (art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c) GDPR), or

·        processing is necessary in order to protect vital interests of the affected person or another natural person (art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. d) GDPR), or

·        it is required for the realisation of a task which is in the public interests or occurs in the execution of official authority (art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. e) GDPR), or

·        we can appoint ourselves for our predominantly authorised interests or that of a third party for transmission (art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR).

There is no transmission of your personal data to another person, company or office beyond this, unless you have effectively consented to such a transmission. The legal basis for this processing is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR. We draw your attention in the scope of this data protection information to the respective recipient in regard to the respective procedures.

Use of our website

You can use our website for purely informational purposes without disclosing your identity. When visiting individual website pages in this sense, access data is only provided to our webspace provider in order for us to display our website to you. The following data is processed in connection with this:

Storing access data in log files, in particular the IP address, for a long period of time enables us to be able to recognise and defend against misuse. This includes protecting the service against excessive queries or any bot usage. The access data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required in order to achieve the purpose of its processing. Data is recorded for provision on the website if you end your visit to the website. The protocol data is generally stored with direct and sole access for administrators and deleted after seven days.
