Data collection on our website

Cookies
In part, the internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

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

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

Cookies that are required for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain desired functions (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically sound 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 privacy statement.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. They are the following:

  • browser type and version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request
  • IP address.

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form
If you send us inquiries by means of the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you enter, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for follow-up questions. We do not disclose this data without your consent.

Processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal message sent by e-mail is sufficient. Lawfulness of data processing operations carried out prior to revocation remains unaffected.

Data entered by you 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 does not exist any more (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Data processing (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (existing data). The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable the user to make use of the service or to issue an invoice.

The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Data transfer upon conclusion of a contract with online stores, dealers and shipment of good
We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary for fulfillment of the contract, for example, to companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the financial institution entrusted with payment processing. A further transfer of data will not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to such transfer. Your data will not be transferred to third parties without your express consent, for example, for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links have been clicked particularly frequently.

We can also see whether certain pre-defined actions were performed after opening / clicking (conversion rate). This allows us to see, for example, whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.

Sendinblue also allows us to divide (“cluster”) newsletter recipients based on different categories. As a result, the newsletter recipients can be divided according to age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, it is easier to adapt newsletters to the respective target groups.
