2. GENERAL INFORMATION ON DATA PROCESSING

2.1. SCOPE OF THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

We generally collect and use personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of our users' personal data takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2.2. LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

As far as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (d) of the Data Protection Regulation. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).

2.3. DELETION OF DATA AND STORAGE PERIOD

The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

3. WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS?

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the party responsible:

3.1. RIGHT OF INFORMATION

You may request confirmation from the responsible person as to whether personal data relating to you is being processed by us.

If there is such processing, you can request information from the responsible person about the following:

(1)  the purposes for which the personal data are processed;

(2)   the categories of personal data which are processed;

(3)   the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you                     have been or will be disclosed;

You are entitled to request information on whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.

3.2 RIGHT OF RECTIFICATION

You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the responsible party if the personal data processed concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. The responsible party shall carry out the rectification without undue delay.

3.3. RIGHT TO RESTRICT PROCESSING

You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you subject to the following conditions:

(1)   if you object to the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the data processor to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2)   the processing is illegitimate and you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;

(3)   the data processor no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims,

or

(4)   if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may be processed, with the exception of storage, only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the European Union or a member state. If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is withdrawn.

3.4. RIGHT TO DELETION 

  1. a) Obligation to delete

You may request the data controller to delete the personal data concerning you without delay and the data controller is obliged to delete such data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1)   The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

(2)   You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to article 6 (1) lit. a or article 9 (2) lit. a of the GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(3)   You object to the processing pursuant to article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to article 21 (2) GDPR.

(4)   The personal data concerning you has been processed in an unlawful manner.

(5)   The deletion of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under European Union law or the law of the member states to which the data controller is subject.

(6)   The personal data concerning you was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to article 8(1) of the GDPR.

  1. b) Information to third parties 

If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it pursuant to article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they delete all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data.

  1. c) Exclusions

The right to deletion does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

(1)   to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;

(2)   for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under the law of the European Union or the member states to which the data controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller;

(3)  for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to article 9 (2) (h) and (i) and article 9 (3) of the GDPR;

(4)  for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to article 89(1) of the GDPR, where the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing,

or

(5) for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

3.5 RIGHT TO INFORMATION

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the data controller, the data controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or deletion of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right against the controller to be informed about these recipients.

3.6 RIGHT TO DATA TRANSFERABILITY

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit this data to another data controller without hindrance from the data controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to article 6(1) a of the GDPR or article 9(2) a of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to article 6(1) b of the GDPR.

and

(2) the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one data controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.

The right to data transferability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller.

3.7 RIGHT OF OBJECTION 

You have the right to object at any time, on the basis of grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The data controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding directive 2002/58/EC, to make use of your right to object by means of automated procedures involving the use of technical specifications.

3.8 RIGHT TO WITHDRAWAL OF THE DECLARATION OF CONSENT UNDER DATA PROTECTION LAW

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the withdrawal.

3.9 AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING IN INDIVIDUAL CASES INCLUDING PROFILING

You are entitled not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

(1)   is necessary for the completion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the responsible person,

(2)   is authorised by the legislation of the Union or of the member states to which the data controller is subject, and this legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests

or

(3)   is done with your express consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

Concerning the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject and his or her legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the data controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

3.10 RIGHT TO COMPLAIN TO A SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY

You have the right to make a complaint to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you violates the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under article 78 GDPR.

>> SOCIAL MEDIA

1. FACEBOOK

1.1. FACEBOOK CUSTOMER AUDIENCE AND FACEBOOK PIXEL

We use the Facebook Customer Audience service and the Facebook Pixel on our websites to optimise our advertising offer, provided you have given us your consent to do so.

For more information about these Facebook services and the privacy policy of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), please visit the following link:

https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation 

The Facebook pixel on our websites can recognise if you are using a Facebook user account by the Facebook cookie that is set, which is used to transmit the collected usage data to Facebook for analysis and marketing purposes. The Facebook pixel may also enable tracking on many other websites. You can check and/or deactivate this data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook directly on Facebook. 

With Facebook Pixel, the following data is transmitted to Facebook: 

  • HTTP header information (including IP address, web browser information, page location, document, web page URL and web browser user agent, and day and time of use).
  • Pixel-specific data; this includes the pixel ID and Facebook cookie data, including your Facebook ID (this data is used to link events to a specific Facebook ad account and associate them with a Facebook user)
  • additional information about visits to our websites, as well as standard and custom data events.
  • orders placed (purchase transactions)
  • completion of registrations and trial subscriptions
  • products searched for, product information retrieved

The aforementioned data processing only concerns users who have an account with Facebook or who have accessed a Facebook partner page (whereby a cookie has been set). The display of advertisements on Facebook (partner) pages using the "Customer Audience" service does not affect users who are not members of Facebook. If the Facebook ID contained in the Facebook cookie can be assigned to a Facebook user, Facebook assigns this user to a target group ("Custom Audience") on the basis of the rules defined by us, provided that the rules are relevant. We use the information obtained in this way to present advertisements on Facebook (partner) pages or other websites. If you wish to object to the use of the Facebook Pixel, you can set an opt-out cookie with Facebook or deactivate JavaScript in your browser. For further information and the settings options for protecting your privacy for advertising purposes, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy, which can be found on https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences.

1.3. SOCIAL PLUGIN

This website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile, the terms "Like", "Like" or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user calls up a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, his/her browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The plugin content is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to its level of knowledge:

Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer through the integration of the plugins. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from their browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and store his or her IP address. Facebook states that only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and settings options for protecting the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook's privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her via this offer and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.

1.4.  CONVERSION MEASUREMENT WITH THE CONVERSION PIXEL FROM FACEBOOK

We use the "conversion pixel" or visitor action pixel of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). By calling up this pixel from your browser, Facebook can subsequently recognise whether a Facebook advertisement was successful, e.g. led to an online purchase. We only receive statistical data from Facebook for this purpose without any reference to a specific person. This allows us to record the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. In particular, if you are registered with Facebook, we refer you to their data protection information https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Please go to www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads if you wish to withdraw your consent to Conversion Pixel.

2. YOUTUBE

This website may contain at least one plugin from YouTube, part of Google Inc. based in San Bruno/California, USA. As soon as you visit pages of our website that are equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. In the process, the YouTube server is informed which particular page of our website you have visited. If, on top of this, you are logged into your YouTube account, you would enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can negate this possibility of association if you log out of your account beforehand. For further information on the collection and use of your data by YouTube, please refer to the information on data protection at www.youtube.com.
