3.   General notes and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously.  We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this Privacy Policy.

 

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This Privacy Policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

 

We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. communication by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

 

Note on the data controller

The data controller for this website is: 
Schock GmbH

Hofbauerstrasse 1

D-94209 Regen, Germany

 

Phone: +49 9921 6000

Email: info@schock.de

 

The data controller is the natural person or legal entitywho determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.) alone or jointly with others.

 

Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period is stated within this Privacy Policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.

Note on data transfer to the US

Among other things, tools from companies based in the US are integrated on our website. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers for the respective companies. We would like to point out that the US is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) will process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.

 

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6(1) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(E) 1 GDPR).

 

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(E) 2 GDPR).

 

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event that the GDPR is breached, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

 

Right to data portability

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

 

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses 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. 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 bar.

 

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 fee-based contract, there is an obligation to provide us with your payment data (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorisation), this data is required for the processing of payments.

 

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are carried out 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, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

Information, deletion and correction

 

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, a right to the correction or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time about this and any other questions you may have on the subject of personal data.

 

Right to restrict processing

 

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

 

If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data held by us, we will usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.

If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.

If we no longer require your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted instead of being deleted.

If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your interests and our interests must be balanced. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted.

 

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons of important public interest pertaining to the European Union or a Member State.

 

Objection to advertising emails

 

An objection to the use of contact data published within the framework of the obligation to provide publication details for the transmission of advertising and information material not expressly requested is raised herewith. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited transmission of advertising information, for example by spam emails.

 

4.   Data collection on this website

Cookies

Our internet pages use “cookies”. Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your end device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.

 

In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your end device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services provided by the third-party company (e.g. cookies for processing payment services).

 

Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the video display). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or display advertising.

 

Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions that you have requested (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping basket function) or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for optimal provision of its services free from technical errors. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the storage of the cookies in question is based exclusively on this consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR); consent can be revoked at any time.

 

You can set your browser so that you are informed about cookies being placed on your device and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

 

If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this separately within the framework of this Privacy Policy and, if necessary, request your consent.

 

Cookie consent with OneTrust

 

This website uses OneTrust cookie consent technology to obtain your consent to certain cookies being stored on your end device or to certain technologies being used and to document this in a way that is compliant with data protection. The provider of this technology is OneTrust Technology Limited – Dixon House 1 Lloyd’s Avenue, London, EC3N 3DQ, UK, website:

https://www.onetrust.com (hereinafter “OneTrust”).

 

Furthermore, OneTrust stores a cookie in your browser in order to be able to assign the given consent or its revocation to you. The data collected in this way is stored until you ask us to delete it, until you delete the OneTrust cookie yourself or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory statutory retention obligations remain unaffected.

 

OneTrust is used to obtain legally required consent to the use of certain technologies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(1)(c) GDPR.

 

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in “server log files”, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

 

Browser type and version Operating system used Referrer URL

Host name of the accessing computer Time of the server request

IP address

 

This data is not merged with other data sources.

 

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in its website being optimised and free from technical errors – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.

 

Contact form

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

 

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, insofar as your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR).

 

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask 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 finished processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

 

Request by email, telephone or fax

If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your enquiry and all the resulting personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

 

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, insofar as your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR).

 

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you ask 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 finished processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

You can register on this website to use additional features on the site. We use the data entered during registration only for the purpose of applying the respective offer or service for which you have registered.

5.   Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

 

Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour of website visitors. In doing so, the website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of stay, operating systems used and the origin of the user. This data may be summarised by Google in a profile that is assigned to the respective user or their end device.

 

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the user to be recognised for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google on the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there.

 

The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

 

Data transfer to the US is based on the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses. Details can be found here:

https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

 

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

 

Browser plugin

You can prevent your data from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For more information on how Google Analytics handles user data, please see Google’s Privacy Policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

 

Job processing

We have concluded an order processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

 

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics in order to display suitable advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. This allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item “Objection to data collection”.

 

Google Analytics E-Commerce Tracking

This website uses the “e-commerce tracking” function of Google Analytics. With the help of e-commerce tracking, the website operator can analyse the buying behaviour of website visitors to improve its online marketing campaigns. Information such as orders placed, average order values, shipping costs and the time from viewing to purchasing a product is recorded. This data can be summarised by Google under a transaction ID that is assigned to the respective user or their device.

 

Storage period

Data stored by Google at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. doubleclick cookies, Android advertising ID) will be anonymised or deleted after 14 months. For details, see the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de

 

Google Remarketing

This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

 

Google Remarketing analyses your user behaviour on our website (e.g. clicking on certain products) in order to classify you in certain advertising target groups and then play you suitable advertising messages when you visit other online offers (remarketing or retargeting).

 

Furthermore, the advertising target groups created with Google Remarketing can be linked with Google’s cross-device functions. In this way, interest-based, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you on one end device (e.g. mobile phone) depending on your previous usage and browsing behaviour can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

 

If you have a Google account, you can object to personalised advertising using the following link:

https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

 

The use of Google Remarketing is based on Art. 6(1)(F) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing its products as effectively as possible. Insofar as corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

 

Further information and the data protection provisions can be found in Google’s Privacy Policy at:

https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=de.

 

Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

 

Google conversion tracking allows Google and us to see whether the user has taken certain actions. For example, we can evaluate which buttons on our website were clicked how often and which products were viewed or purchased particularly frequently. This information is used to create conversion statistics. We learn the total number of users who have clicked on our ads and what actions they have taken. We do not receive any information with which we can personally identify the user. Google itself uses cookies or comparable recognition technologies for identification purposes.

 

The use of Google conversion tracking is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

 

You can find more information about Google conversion tracking in Google’s Privacy Policy:

https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

 

Facebook Pixel

This website uses Facebook’s visitor action pixel to measure conversions. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the US and other third countries.

 

In this way, the behaviour of page visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and to optimise future advertising measures.

 

The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the

Facebook Data Use Policy. This allows Facebook to operate ads on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.

 

The use of Facebook Pixel is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures, including social media.

If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

 

Data transfer to the US is based on the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses. Details can be found here:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum and https://de-de.facebook.com/help/566994660333381.

 

Insofar as personal data is collected on our website with the help of the tool described here and forwarded to Facebook, we and Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are jointly responsible for this data processing (Art. 26 GDPR). The joint responsibility is limited exclusively to the collection of the data and its transfer to Facebook. The processing by Facebook that takes place after the data is forwarded is not part of the joint responsibility. The obligations incumbent on us both have been set out in a joint processing agreement. You can find the text of the agreement at:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum. According to this agreement, we are responsible for providing privacy information when using the Facebook tool and for implementing the tool on our website in a way that protects privacy. Facebook is responsible for the data security of Facebook products. You can assert data subject rights (e.g. requests for information) regarding the data processed by Facebook directly with Facebook. If you assert the data subject rights with us, we are obliged to forward them to Facebook.

 

See Facebook’s Privacy Notice for more information about protecting your privacy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

 

You can also disable the Custom Audiences remarketing feature in the Ad Settings section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen . To do this, you must be logged in to Facebook.

 

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable Facebook’s usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

 

6.   Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

 

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The lawfulness of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to exist. We reserve the right to delete or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion within the scope of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

 

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is only used for this purpose and is not merged with other data.

This serves both your interests and our interests in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in terms of time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

 

Sendinblue

This website uses Sendinblue to send newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany.

 

Sendinblue is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored on Sendinblue’s servers in Germany.

 

Data analysis by Sendinblue

 

With the help of Sendinblue, we are able to analyse our newsletter campaigns. For example,

you can see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links have been clicked on particularly often.

 

In addition, we can see whether certain previously defined actions have been carried out after opening/clicking (conversion rate). This enables us to see, for example, whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.

 

Sendinblue also allows us to subdivide (“cluster”) newsletter recipients according to different categories. The newsletter recipients can be subdivided according to age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.

 

If you do not want any analysis by Sendinblue, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this in every newsletter message.

 

For detailed information on the functions of Sendinblue, see the following link: https://de.sendinblue.com/newsletter-software/.

 

Legal basis

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The lawfulness of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

Storage period

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

 

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is only used for this purpose and is not merged with other data.

This serves both your interests and our interests in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in terms of time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

 

For more details, please see Sendinblue’s Privacy Policy at https://de.sendinblue.com/datenschutz-uebersicht/.

 

Conclusion of a contract on commissioned processing

 

We have concluded a contract with Sendinblue in which we oblige Sendinblue to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.

 

7.   Plugins and tools

Vimeo without tracking (do not track)

This website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

 

When you visit one of our pages equipped with Vimeo videos, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. This tells the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo obtains your IP address. However, we have set up Vimeo in such a way that Vimeo will not track your user activity or place cookies on your end device.

 

The use of Vimeo is in the interest of presenting our online offers in an appealing way. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Insofar as corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

 

The data transfer to the US is based on the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses and, according to Vimeo, on “legitimate business interests”. Details can be found here: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

 

For further information on the handling of user data, please refer to Vimeo’s Privacy Policy at:

https://vimeo.com/privacy.

 

Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

 

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data input on this website (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or an automated programme. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor on the basis of various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For analysis purposes, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.

 

The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.

 

The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offerings from abusive automated spying and from SPAM. Insofar as corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

 

For more information about Google reCAPTCHA, please see the Google Privacy Policy and the Google Terms of Service at the following links:

8.   eCommerce and payment providers

Processing data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data relating to the use of this website (usage data) only insofar as this is necessary to enable the user to utilise the service or to charge for it.

Data transmission upon conclusion of a contract for online shops, traders and dispatch of goods

 

We only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary within the framework of the contract processing, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or to the credit institution entrusted with payment processing. Further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The transfer takes place exclusively for the purpose of the delivery of goods.

 

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (fulfilment of contract) and our legitimate interest in the fastest and most effective purchase processing possible within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
