Further information about Personal Data

Privacy Shield participation: data transfers from the EU and Switzerland to the United States

The Owner participates in and complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Data transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States. The policies and rights outlined below are therefore equally and explicitly applicable to Users from Switzerland, except if stated otherwise. The Owner has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.

If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view the Owner’s certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/ (or find the direct link to the certification list of Privacy Shield participants maintained by the Department of Commerce https://www.privacyshield.gov/list).

 

What does this mean for the European User?

The Owner is responsible for all processing of Personal Data it receives under the Privacy Shield Framework from European Union individuals and commits to subject the processed Personal Data to the Privacy Shield Principles.

 

This, most importantly, includes the right of individuals to access their personal data processed by the Owner.

The Owner also complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of Personal Data from the EU, which means that it remains liable in cases of onward transfers to third parties.

With respect to Personal Data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, the Owner is subject to the investigatory and regulatory enforcement powers of the FTC, if not stated otherwise in this privacy policy.

 

The Owner is further required to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Dispute resolution under the Privacy Shield

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, the Owner commits to resolve complaints about its collection or use of the User’s Personal Data. European Union individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding this Privacy Shield policy should first contact the Owner at the contact details supplied at the beginning of this document referring to “Privacy Shield” and expect the complaint to be dealt with within 30 days.

In case of failure by the Owner to provide a satisfactory or timely response, the User has the option of involving an independent dispute resolution body, free of charge.

In this regard, the Owner has agreed to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and comply with the advice given by the panel with regard to data transferred from the EU. The User may therefore contact the Owner at the email address provided at the beginning of this document in order to be directed to the relevant DPA contacts.

 

Under certain conditions – available for the User in full on the Privacy Shield website (https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=How-to-Submit-a-Complaint) – the User may invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.

 

Selling goods and services online

The Personal Data collected are used to provide the User with services or to sell goods, including payment and possible delivery.
The Personal Data collected to complete the payment may include the credit card, the bank account used for the transfer, or any other means of payment envisaged. The kind of Data collected by this Website depends on the payment system used.

The Owner takes appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, or unauthorized destruction of the Data.
The Data processing is carried out using computers and/or IT-enabled tools, following organizational procedures and modes strictly related to the purposes indicated. In addition to the Owner, in some cases, the Data may be accessible to certain types of persons in charge, involved with the operation of this Website (administration, sales, marketing, legal, system administration) or external parties (such as third-party technical service providers, mail carriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communications agencies) appointed, if necessary, as Data Processors by the Owner.

The Owner may process Personal Data relating to Users if one of the following applies:

Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Note: Under some legislations, the Owner may be allowed to process Personal Data until the User objects to such processing (“opt-out”), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases.

Furthermore, the Owner may be obliged to retain Personal Data for a longer period whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or upon order of an authority.

Once the retention period expires, Personal Data shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification, and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after the expiration of the retention period.

Cookie Policy 

This document informs Users about the technologies that help this Website to achieve the purposes described below. Such technologies allow the Owner to access and store information (for example by using a Cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a User’s device as they interact with this Website.

With this, the website operator informs the user of the website about the use of cookies or similar storage technologies (hereinafter "cookies") on this website.

 

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored by the web browser on the user's end device to save certain information. The next time our website is called up with the same end device, the information stored in cookies is sent back to our website ("first party cookie") or another website to which the cookie belongs ("third-party cookie").

Through the information stored in the cookie and sent back, the respective website recognises that the user has already called up and visited this website with the web browser of his end device. We use this information to optimally display the website to the user according to his or her preferences.

However, only the cookie itself is identified on the end device. Any further storage of personal data only takes place if the user gives us his or her express consent or if this storage is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and accessed.

 

Consent to the use of cookies
Cookies that are not absolutely necessary to provide the services on this website will only be used after consent has been given. By giving consent to the use of cookies on the basis of a notice issued by us on the website ("cookie banner"), the user consents to the use of cookies.

The user can adjust his cookie settings individually at any time, for example by activating or deactivating individual cookie categories.

How the user can generally deactivate or delete cookies (including the absolutely necessary cookies) in his browser is described under the item "Deactivation or deletion of all cookies".


Legal basis
 

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyze your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

If the user has given consent to the use of cookies on the basis of a notice issued by us on the website ("cookie banner"), the lawfulness of the data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO. If no consent is requested, our legitimate interest (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of this website and services) within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO constitutes the legal basis for the use of cookies.

 

Categories of cookies used
Depending on the purpose and function, we divide the cookies used by the website into the following categories:

  1. Absolutely necessary cookies

  2. Functional cookies

  3. Performance cookies

  4. Marketing / Third Party / Consent Cookies

 

Essential cookies ensure that this website, or service, functions properly. This means that without these cookies, this website or service cannot be used as intended. This type of cookie is only used by the operator of the website (first-party cookies) and all information stored in the cookies is only sent to this website.

 

1. Essential cookies

Essential cookies cannot be individually disabled or enabled. The user has the option at any time to adjust his cookie settings or to generally deactivate cookies in his browser (see item "Deactivation or deletion of all cookies").

 

2. Functional cookies
Functional cookies enable this website to store the information provided, such as the user name or language selection, and to offer the user improved and personalized functions based on this information. The user can object to the use of functional cookies at any time by adjusting his or her cookie settings accordingly.

 

3. Performance cookies
Performance cookies collect information about how these websites are used in order to improve their attractiveness, content and functionality. These cookies help us to determine, for example, whether and which sub-pages of this website are visited and which content users are particularly interested in. We record the number of times a page is accessed, the number of sub-pages accessed, the time spent on the website, the order of the pages visited, which search terms led our users to us, the country, region and, if applicable, the city from which access is made. In addition, we record movements, e.g. "clicks" and scrolling with the computer mouse, in order to understand which areas of this website are of particular interest to our users. As a result, we can tailor the content of this website more specifically to the needs of our users and improve our offering. The transmitted IP address of a computer is automatically anonymised and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the individual user.

We reserve the right to also use information obtained by means of cookies from an anonymised analysis of the usage behaviour of users of the websites in order to display specific advertising for our products. We believe that the user benefits from this because we display advertising or content that we assume, based on the surfing behaviour, matches the user's interests.

The user of the website has the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR. In order to exercise these and other data subject rights, a data subject may at any time contact the contact address indicated below. 

The user of the website can object to the use of performance cookies at any time by adjusting his or her cookie settings accordingly.

 

4. Marketing / Third Party Cookies


Marketing / third party/consent cookies originate, among others, from external advertising companies and are used to collect information about the websites visited by the user, e.g. to create targeted advertising for the user.

This information is used to set up, provide and personalise your account.

For more information, please see the Facebook Terms of Use and Facebook Privacy Policy. These can be found at: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/ and https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook Pixel, we can further track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data use policy. Accordingly, general notes on the display of Facebook ads apply, in Facebook's data usage policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

 

Specific information and details on the Facebook Pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook's help section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

 

The user can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and the use of his/her data for the display of Facebook ads at any time via the cookie settings. In order to set which types of advertisements are displayed to the user within Facebook, the user can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

The user can also opt-out of the use of cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes via the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page (https://optout.networkadvertising.org/), additionally via the US website (https://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (https://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).

If the user does not want to consent (any longer) to the corresponding data collection, he/she can object and deactivate the data collection under the following link:

The user can object to the use of marketing cookies at any time by adjusting their cookie settings accordingly.

 

Deactivation or deletion of all cookies
The user can set his web browser in such a way that the storage of cookies on his end device is generally prevented or he is asked each time whether he agrees to the setting of cookies. Once cookies have been set, the user can delete them at any time. How this works is described in the help function of the respective web browser.

 

A general deactivation of cookies may lead to functional restrictions of this website.

For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as "Trackers" within this document – unless there is a reason to differentiate.


For example, while Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based Tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term Cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of Tracker.

Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may also require the User's consent, depending on the applicable law. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.

This Website uses Trackers managed directly by the Owner (so-called “first-party” Trackers) and Trackers that enable services provided by a third-party (so-called “third-party” Trackers). Unless otherwise specified within this document, third-party providers may access the Trackers managed by them.


The validity and expiration periods of Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set by the Owner or the relevant provider. Some of them expire upon termination of the User’s browsing session.


In addition to what’s specified in the descriptions within each of the categories below, Users may find more precise and updated information regarding lifetime specification as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Trackers - in the linked privacy policies of the respective third-party providers or by contacting the Owner.

Activities strictly necessary for the operation of this Website and delivery of the Service

This Website uses so-called “technical” Cookies and other similar Trackers to carry out activities that are strictly necessary for the operation or delivery of the Service. 

This type of service allows this Website to distribute its content using servers located across different countries and to optimize its performance.
Which Personal Data are processed depends on the characteristics and the way these services are implemented. Their function is to filter communications between this Website and the User's browser.
Considering the widespread distribution of this system, it is difficult to determine the locations to which the contents that may contain the Personal Information of the User are transferred.

Cloudflare (Cloudflare Inc.)

Cloudflare is a traffic optimization and distribution service provided by Cloudflare Inc.
The way Cloudflare is integrated means that it filters all the traffic through this Website, i.e., communication between this Website and the User's browser, while also allowing analytical data from this Website to be collected.

Personal Data processed: Cookies and various types of Data as specified in the privacy policy of the service.

How to manage preferences and provide or withdraw consent

There are various ways to manage Tracker related preferences and to provide and withdraw consent, where relevant:

Users can manage preferences related to Trackers from directly within their own device settings, for example, by preventing the use or storage of Trackers.

Additionally, whenever the use of Trackers is based on consent, Users can provide or withdraw such consent by setting their preferences within the cookie notice or by updating such preferences accordingly via the relevant consent-preferences widget, if available.

It is also possible, via relevant browser or device features, to delete previously stored Trackers, including those used to remember the User’s initial consent.

Other Trackers in the browser’s local memory may be cleared by deleting the browsing history.

With regard to any third-party Trackers, Users can manage their preferences and withdraw their consent via the related opt-out link (where provided), by using the means indicated in the third party's privacy policy, or by contacting the third party.

 

Locating Tracker Settings

Users can, for example, find information about how to manage Cookies in the most commonly used browsers at the following addresses:

 

Users may also manage certain categories of Trackers used on mobile apps by opting out through relevant device settings, such as the device advertising settings for mobile devices, or tracking settings in general (Users may open the device settings, view and look for the relevant setting).

 

Advertising industry-specific opt-outs

Notwithstanding the above, Users may follow the instructions provided by YourOnlineChoices (EU), the Network Advertising Initiative (US) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (US), DAAC (Canada), DDAI (Japan) or other similar services. Such initiatives allow Users to select their tracking preferences for most of the advertising tools. The Owner thus recommends that Users make use of these resources in addition to the information provided in this document.

The Digital Advertising Alliance offers an application called AppChoices that helps Users to control interest-based advertising on mobile apps.

Changes to this privacy policy

The Owner reserves the right to make changes to this privacy policy at any time by notifying its Users on this page and possibly within this Website and/or - as far as technically and legally feasible - sending a notice to Users via any contact information available to the Owner. It is strongly recommended to check this page often, referring to the date of the last modification listed at the bottom.

Should the changes affect processing activities performed on the basis of the User’s consent, the Owner shall collect new consent from the User, where required.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html

Right to data portability


You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption


For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from

"http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website.


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

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 address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

With encrypted communication, the payment data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion.


Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin, and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correct, block, or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Contact form


If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

 

Objection to advertising e-mails


We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example by spam e-mails.
