B. Data processing

What is personal data and what does data processing mean?

Personal data are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person that can be identified directly or indirectly.
Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with personal data:

namely the collection, collection, organisation, arrangement, storage, adaptation or modification, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction. We process data as part of the operation of our website. The processing of the data also includes disclosure by transmission. For data transfers to the USA, the EU-US Privacy Shield has been approved by the EU Commission. In it, the Commission certified that the guarantees for the transfer of data to the USA on the basis of the EU-US Privacy Shield comply with data protection standards in the EU. As far as we transmit data to the USA, we have marked the participation of our service providers in the EU-US Privacy Shield. The data concerned, processing purposes, legal bases, recipients and transfers to third countries are listed below:

a) Log file

The following data is processed: Name of the website accessed, date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, the browser type and version, the operating system you are using, the referrer URL (the previously visited website), your IP address and the requesting provider. This is necessary to ensure the security of the website. We process the data accordingly on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO. The log file will be deleted after seven days, unless it is required for clarification or to prove concrete violations of the law that have become known within the retention period.

Within the framework of hosting, all data to be processed in connection with the operation of this website is stored. This is necessary to enable the operation of the website.

In order to provide you with regular information about our company and our offers, we offer to send you a newsletter. With your registration for the newsletter we process the data you have entered (e-mail address and other voluntary information). The newsletter will be sent by registration on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO. Subscription to the newsletter takes place in the so-called double opt-in procedure. To prevent misuse, we will send you an e-mail after your registration asking you to confirm your registration. In order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements, your registration will be logged. This affects the storage of the time of registration and confirmation as well as your IP address. We use service providers to send the newsletter, to whom we send the above-mentioned data.

e) Customer account, registration and use
If you open a customer account, you agree that your inventory data (name, address, e-mail address, bank details) as well as your usage data (user name, password) are stored. This allows us to identify you as a customer and allows you to manage your orders. Your data will be processed on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO.

We transmit your transaction data (name, date of order, method of payment, date of dispatch and/or receipt, amount and recipient of payment, if applicable bank details or credit card data) to the payment service provider commissioned to process the payment.
