Data protection notice

It is our aim that you feel comfortable on our website. The protection of your privacy and your personal rights are therefore very important to us. We would therefore like to ask you to carefully read the following summary of how our website works. You can rely on transparent and fair data processing and we strive to handle your data carefully and responsibly. The following data protection information is intended to inform you about how we use your personal data. In doing so, we adhere to the strict provisions of German data protection law and the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Scope of the processing of personal data

In principle, we only collect and use personal data from you insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services, e.g. when you register on our website or log into an existing customer account or when you order products. The collection and use of your personal data takes place regularly only with your consent. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent is not possible for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law. The security of your personal data is a high priority for us. We therefore protect your data stored by us through technical and organizational measures in order to effectively prevent loss or misuse by third parties. In particular, our employees who process personal data are obliged to observe data secrecy and must comply with this. To protect your personal data, these are transmitted in encrypted form; For example, we use SSL = Secure Socket Layer for communication via your Internet browser. You can recognize this by the lock symbol that your browser displays with an SSL connection. In order to guarantee the permanent protection of your data, the technical security measures are regularly checked and, if necessary, adapted to the state of the art. These principles also apply to companies that process and use data on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions.

Processing record and legal basis for solving your personal data

We collect, process and use your personal data for the following purposes: Establishment and implementation of contractual relationships Sending newsletters Marketing measures Customer service and customer support Provision of telemedia, such as to process orders for our online range of goods and services The processing of your personal data can be based on the following legal bases: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain your consent for a specific processing purpose. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract, e.g. when you purchase a product. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, insofar as we are subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR in the event that vital interests of you or another natural person require the processing of personal data. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR applies on the basis of our legitimate interests, e.g. when using service providers in the context of order processing, such as shipping service providers or when carrying out statistical surveys and analyzes as well as logging registration procedures. We are interested in the use of a user-friendly, appealing and secure presentation and optimization of our website, which serves both our business interests and meets your expectations.

Duration of storage and routine deletion of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period necessary to fulfill the storage purpose or if this has been provided for in laws or regulations. After the purpose no longer exists or has been fulfilled, your personal data will be deleted or blocked. In the case of blocking, the deletion takes place as soon as there are no legal, statutory or contractual retention periods to the contrary, there is no reason to assume that deletion will affect your interests worthy of protection and that deletion will not cause a disproportionate amount of effort due to the special type of storage.

Collection of general data and information, so-called log files

Our website records each time it is accessed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO a series of general data and information that are temporarily stored in log files on a server. A log file is created in the course of an automatic protocol of the processing computer system. The following can be recorded:

Amount of data sent

Which browser and which browser version you are using

The operating system you are using

Which internet service provider you are using

Your IP address, which your Internet access provider assigns to your computer when you connect to the Internet

The collection and storage of this data is necessary for the operation of the website in order to ensure the functionality of the website and to correctly deliver the content of our website. In addition, we use the data to optimize our website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. For this reason, the data is stored for a maximum of 7 days as a technical precaution.

We also use this data for the purpose of advertising, market research and the needs-based design of our services by creating and evaluating usage profiles under pseudonyms, but only if you have not exercised your right to object to this use of your data (see notes to the right of objection in the point "Your rights").

When you contact us by phone, email or via a contact form, the data you provide will be processed based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO stored by us to answer your questions. The establishment of contact is logged in order to be able to prove the establishment of contact in accordance with the legal requirements. For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained using the contact form and reference is made to this data protection notice. We delete the data arising in this context when the respective conversation with you has ended and the matter in question has been finally clarified.

b) Registration

On our website we offer you the option of registering by providing personal data. The data is entered in an input mask and transmitted to us and stored. The registration serves to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures and is therefore based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

For the conclusion and processing of contracts, we need contact information, such as name, delivery and billing address and email address, as well as information on the type of payment method you have chosen. In addition, we use your data to maintain our customer database so that only applicable data is stored there. In order to avoid typing errors and to ensure that the items you have ordered arrive, we check that your address is complete and correct when you enter it.

c) Guest order

You have the option of placing your orders as a guest. If you choose this type of order, you do not have to register before placing an order. Please note that you have to re-enter your data for each further order.

We collect, process and use the information you provide as part of a guest order for the purpose of executing the contract in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. We save the information you provide for the period of processing and processing your order. Your data will then be deleted unless you decide to activate your customer account within 14 days of placing your order. Data that we have to store due to legal, statutory or contractual retention requirements are blocked instead of being deleted in order to prevent use for other purposes.

d) OTHER

You have the option of placing your orders as a guest. If you choose this type of order, you do not have to register before placing an order. Please note that you have to re-enter your data for each further order.

Based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c and f GDPR, we use and save your personal data and technical information insofar as this is necessary to prevent or prosecute misuse or other illegal behavior on our website, e.g. to maintain data security in the event of attacks on our IT systems. This also takes place insofar as we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. due to official or court orders, and for the exercise of our rights and claims as well as for legal defense.

Passing on personal data to third parties

When forwarding your personal data, we always ensure the highest possible level of security. Therefore, your data will only be passed on to previously carefully selected and contractually bound service providers and partner companies. In addition, your data will only be forwarded by us to bodies that are obliged to maintain an appropriate level of protection.

a) Disclosure within group companies according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR

We pass on your personal data for the conclusion and processing of contracts for offers on our website / portal of affiliated companies for storage in central databases and for internal group billing and accounting purposes. This is particularly necessary so that you can use all of our offers.

b) Passing on to service companies in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and f GDPR

Various service companies are active for us for the operation and optimization of our website as well as our services and for contract processing, e.g. for central IT services or the hosting of our website, for the payment and delivery of products or for device installation or for sending newsletters, to which we pass on the data required for the fulfillment of tasks (e.g. name, address). Some of these companies work for us by way of order processing and may therefore only use the data provided in accordance with our instructions. In this case, we are legally responsible for taking appropriate data protection precautions at the companies commissioned by us. We therefore agree on specific data security measures with these companies and monitor them regularly. Your order will be shipped via a service provider, e.g. DHL or UPS processed. This service provider receives information from us, such as the email address you provided when ordering, so that they can arrange an individual delivery date with you. In contrast to order processing, we transmit data to third parties in the following cases for independent use for contract processing: When delivering goods to logistics companies and the postal service provider specified in the order. When paying for goods to the payment service provider specified in the order or a financing bank. In the case of credit card payments, a transaction-based security check is carried out with the help of the payment service provider to avoid credit card fraud. When paying, we do not collect or save any payment transaction information such as credit card numbers or bank details. You only provide this directly to the respective payment service provider. The exception to this is a so-called pseudo card number for credit card payments: so that you do not have to re-enter your credit card details each time you pay, a pseudo card number is saved in your customer account. The pseudo card number only enables the payment of offers on our website that are ordered from your customer account and is not identical to the credit card number.

c) Passing on to other third parties in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c and f GDPR

Finally, we will pass on your data to third parties or government agencies within the framework of the existing data protection laws, e.g. if we do so. are legally obliged due to official or court orders or if we are entitled to do so, e.g. because this is necessary for the prosecution of criminal offenses or for the exercise and enforcement of our rights and claims.
