No warehouse, salesrooms or customer services exist at this address.) (hereinafter “Provider”) as the body responsible for data protection.
You can reach us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, should you have any questions on data protection.
COLLECTION OF ACCESS DATA
The Provider collects data about every visit to the online offering (so-called server log files). This access data includes the name of the website accessed, the file, the date and time of the access, volume of data transferred, successful call-up message, browser type and version, the operating system of the User, referrer URL (the webpage visited before this one), IP address, and the requesting provider.
The Provider uses the protocol data in accordance with the statutory provisions without attributing it to the person of the User or other profiles and only for statistical evaluation of the operation, security, and optimization of the online offering. The Provider reserves the right, however, to check the protocol data retroactively when there is justified suspicion based on concrete evidence of illegal use.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA
Personal data will be collected and used by the Provider only when this is permitted by law or the Users consent to the collection of data. Generally, Users will recognize through their use of the service which data is being saved – for example, name, e-mail address, and information in the use of the order form.
Personal data provided for the purposes of ordering goods (such as name, e-mail address, address, payment data) will be used by the seller for the fulfillment and completion of the contract. This data will be handled confidentially, will be transmitted in encryption, and will not be passed to third parties who are not involved in the ordering, delivery and payment processes.
Upon contact with the Provider (via contact form or e-mail), information provided by the User will be saved for the purposes of processing the enquiry, as well as in case follow-up questions arise.
The Provider has taken organizational, contractual, and technical measures to ensure that the requirements of the data protection laws are observed and that accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized third parties is prevented.
TRANSFER OF DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
User data will only be transferred to third parties if this is permissible by law or if a User has consented to the transfer.
This is the case, for example, when the transfer of the data is required for the fulfillment of contractual obligations vis-à-vis the User and the postal address is passed on to the forwarding company following the placing of an order in the shop; or if the data is requested by competent bodies such as the law enforcement authorities.
The personal data of the Users is never sold or passed on to third parties in any way for advertising purposes or for the purposes of consumer profiling.
The Provider uses “cookies” in the context of his online offering. Cookies are small files that are stored on the computer of the User and that can store information for the Provider. Temporary cookies are deleted once the browser is closed, whereas permanent cookies remain for a prescribed amount of time and can provide the stored information when the online offering is accessed again by the User.
Amongst other things, cookies are used to facilitate use of the website, including saving the shopping basket status of a User.
The Provider uses Google Analytics – a web analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “Cookies“, text files that are stored on the computer of the User and that enable an analysis of the use of the website by the User. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the user is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States.
However, if IP-anonymization is activated on this website, the user’s IP address will be truncated by Google within the area of member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the whole IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA first, where it is then truncated. IP anonymization is active on this website. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate the user’s use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website use and internet use for the benefit of the website operator.
USE OF FACEBOOK SOCIAL PLUGINS
This online service uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). These plugins are marked with a Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue square or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked “Facebook Social Plugin”. A list and images of the icons of the Facebook Social Plugins can be seen here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If a User visits a website of this service that contains such a plugin, the User’s browser will establish a direct connection to the Facebook servers. Facebook transmits the content of the plugin directly to the User’s browser where it is integrated into the website. The Provider thus has no influence on the scope of data collected by Facebook using this plugin and therefore informs the User to the best of their knowledge:
The plugin integration provides Facebook with the information that the User has visited the corresponding page of the service. If the User is logged in on Facebook, Facebook can assign the User’s visit to the User’s Facebook account. If the User interacts with the plugins, for example by using the “Like” button or leaving a comment, the browser transmits the corresponding information directly to Facebook where it is saved. If the User is not a member of Facebook, the possibility still exists that Facebook will collect and save the user’s IP address. According to Facebook, only anonymized IP addresses are saved in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as related rights and settings available to users to protect their privacy can be found in the Facebook privacy policies: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If the User is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him/her in connection with this online offering and associate it with the membership data saved on Facebook, the User must log out of his/her Facebook account before visiting this website.
It is also possible to block Facebook Social Plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.
+1 BUTTONS FROM GOOGLE+
Buttons of the social network Google+ are used in this online offering (e.g. the “+1” button); these are operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). When a User accesses a webpage of this online offering that contains such a button, the browser will establish a direct connection to the Google servers. Google transmits the content of the button directly to the browser where it is integrated into the website. The Provider thus has no influence on the scope of data collected by Google using this button.
According to Google, no personal data will be collected without clicking on the button. Such data, including IP address, will only be collected and processed in the case of logged-in members of Google+. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as the associated rights and setting options for the User to protect his/her privacy can be found in Google’s data protection notice regarding the “+1” button (https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy) and the FAQ http://bit.ly/r3Qmer. If the User is a member of Google+ and does not want Google to collect data about him/her in connection with this online offering and associate it with the membership data saved by Google, the User must log out of his/her Google+ account before visiting this website and delete the Google cookies within the browser.
USE OF THE TWITTER BUTTONS
This website offering uses buttons from the Twitter service. These buttons (e.g. “tweet” or “follow”) are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
When a User visits a page of this website containing such a button, his or her browser sets up a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter button will be transmitted directly to the browser of the User. The Provider thus has no influence on the extent of data collected by Twitter using this plugin and therefore informs the User to the best of their knowledge. According to their knowledge, only the IP address of the User is transmitted along with the URL of the respective website when the button is loaded and this data is not used for any purpose other than the presentation of the button. You can find further information in Twitter’s privacy declaration at
USE OF THE PINTEREST BUTTONS
