II. CONCRETE INFORMATION ON THE COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

II.1. Visiting the website

  1. a) Purpose of the processing of data

Every time a user accesses a page from our website or calls up a file stored on our website, access data relating to this process are stored in a log file. Each dataset consists of:

(1) the page from which the file was requested,
(2) the name of the file,
(3) the date and time of the request,
(4) the amount of data transmitted,
(5) the access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.),
(6) a description of the type of operating system and web browser used,
(7) the host name of the accessing computer,
(8) the client IP address.

We use this data in order to operate our website, in particular to determine the utilisation of the website and website malfunctions, and to make adjustments or improvements. The client IP address is used for the purpose of transmitting the data requested; when no longer technically required, the client IP address will be rendered anonymous by deleting the last block of numbers (Ipv4) or the last octet (Ipv6).

b)Duration of storage

Data are stored every time a user accesses a page from our website or calls up our website; such data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of the collection, which is the case within three months of the visitor leaving the website at the latest.

c) Legal basis

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the aforementioned data is Article 6(1)(f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as "GDPR"). The legitimate interest is to make available our website and to check for misuse.

d) Possibility of objection and removal

The data subject may object to processing by abstaining from using our website and, subject to the requirements described in more detail below in the "Rights" section, may request the erasure of the data collected by him or her in this way by making an informal declaration.

 

II.2. Cookies

a) Purpose of the processing of data

In order to make it technically possible to visit our website and to place orders, we transmit so-called cookies to the data subject's end device. Cookies are small text files that enable the data subject's end device to be identified, usually by recording the name of the domain from which the cookie data were sent, information on the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Saving the cookie on the end device used - without interfering with the operating system - enables the end device to be recognised and enables us to make immediately available any possible presettings. We use this information to adapt our website and the services offered to your needs and to enable you to access our website more quickly.

 

b)Duration of storage

The different cookies are stored for different lengths of time; however, the maximum period is two years. Cookies are stored on your local end device, not on our server, which is why the actual deletion period depends on how your browser software is configured. Please refer to the operating instructions of your browser software to find out how to delete - either ad hoc or automatically - cookies that we have set.

c) Legal basis

The legal basis for the storage of the aforementioned data is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The legitimate interest in setting cookies is, on the one hand, to optimise the quality of our website through analysis and, on the other hand, to enable users to visit our website; in particular, a number of functions on our website cannot be used without cookies, since, in the absence of cookies, the user and the settings he or she has made would not be recognised when changing to a different page, language settings would be lost, and it would not be possible to perform searches. In addition, the legal basis for storing data for the purpose of performing a contract is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.

d) Possibility of objection and removal

The data subject may block the use of cookies in the end device used or delete these cookies after use. In some circumstances, however, it may not be possible to use individual functions of our website. Please refer to the operating instructions of the browser software to find out how to block cookies and delete cookies that have already been saved.

The personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of executing the contract, for example at Commissioning a shipping company or using of a Payment service company.

b) Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer

required for the purposes for which they have been collected or otherwise processed. That period is five years for personal data that fall under Section 147 of the German Fiscal Code (AO) and ten years for personal data that fall under Section 257 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). These periods commence at the end of the calendar year in which the data were collected.

We provide a contact form on our website. The data subject may use this contact form to contact us electronically, and we are able to process the query. The following data are collected and stored: name, company, address, email address, telephone number, date and time of the query, and a description of the concern.

b)Duration of storage

Once data are no longer required for achieving the purpose, they will be deleted.

That period is five years for personal data that fall under Section 147 of the German Fiscal Code (AO) and ten years for personal data that fall under Section 257 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). These periods commence at the end of the calendar year in which the data were collected.

c) Legal basis

The legal basis for storing the aforementioned data is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR in the context of the initiation or performance of a contract, or Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The controller's legitimate interest is the ability to process contact enquiries and to prevent the abuse of contact enquiry.

If you register without concluding another contract, this is the case if the registration is deleted or the data is changed.

II.6. Direct Marketing

We will use the data received from the data subject in connection with the sale of a product or service for direct advertising for our services and products, to the extent permitted by law..

II.7. Google Analytics

a) Purpose of data processing

The client IP address is collected for use of the Google Analytics service. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on the end device of the person concerned and which enable an analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, Google will reduce the IP address of the person concerned within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

b) Duration of storage

As soon as the data are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose, they will be deleted, which is the case when the anonymisation within the European Union has been completed. This takes less than a second.

The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

For more information, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

c) Legal basis

The storage of the aforementioned data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the fact that we are able to analyse the use of the website by all users in its entirety without drawing conclusions about the behaviour of identifiable persons; this enables us to optimise our website and our offers.

d) Possibility of objection and removal

The person concerned can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of the browser software; however, we point out to the person concerned that in this case not all functions of this website may be used in full. Furthermore, the person concerned can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to the use of the website (including the IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link[http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en].

 

II.8. Facebook-, Google+, Instagram-, Twitter-, YouTube-, Pinterest-Buttons

a) Purpose of data processing

We do not collect any personal data through buttons on social networks. Nevertheless, we explain the technical background for the sake of completeness. We only use disabled buttons from Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube und Pinterest. This means that no data is transmitted to these networks. By clicking on the buttons, the person concerned decides to activate them and thus establish a connection to the servers of the operators of the social networks and thus to transmit data to the servers of the social networks in accordance with the agreement concluded by the person concerned with the social network. Activation leads to access to social network content. The type, purpose and scope of data collection and use can be found in the corresponding data protection declarations of the social networks.

After a second click on the button the user can send his recommendation to the social networks. If the person concerned wishes to recommend several pages, the consent is required on each page. If the person concerned wants the social network to have permanent access to his data, the person concerned can permanently activate the buttons. For this purpose, the appropriate check mark can be placed under a gear icon with the result that the selected button is always directly active.

b) Duration of storage

Duration of storage is based on the specifications of the operators of the social networks.

c) Legal basis

The operators of the social networks inform those affected about the legal basis.

d) Possibility of objection and removal

Via the gear icon, via which the person concerned has activated the social media buttons, he can later also change his consent again and deactivate the buttons.

 

II.9. Facebook-Tracking

a) Purpose of data processing

We use tracking technology from Facebook Inc. based in the USA on our website. Your IP address is transmitted to the external provider at the time of your visit, the browser used, the operating system used and the page you have requested. In addition to us, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland is responsible for data processing.

At the same time, a cookie is set that enables us to track how you have found our website - possibly via advertisements placed by us on Facebook, but also by other means. At the same time it is recorded whether our advertising measure has led to the conclusion of a contract (so-called conversion).

The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to track the effectiveness of our advertising measures and to enable Facebook to bill us for our advertising measures. In addition, the data is used to link the information that the local website has been visited to your Facebook profile if you are a Facebook customer and log in there during or after your visit to our website. Facebook uses this procedure to determine your interests and preferences in order to present you with tailor-made advertising.

The data collected in this respect is only made available to us by Facebook in anonymous form; we do not store any personal data in this context. If, according to Facebook, data is also transmitted to the USA, this is done on the basis of the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement.

b) Duration of storage

According to Facebook, the data collected in this way is stored for a period of 90 days. After 90 days, the data will be made anonymous so that it can no longer be associated with you.

c) Legal basis

The storage of the aforementioned data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the fact that we are able to analyse the use of the website by all users in its entirety without drawing conclusions about the behaviour of identifiable persons; this enables us to optimise our website and our offers.

d) Possibility of objection and removal

You can object to the collection of data by deactivating the use of cookies in your browser settings. However, we would like to point out that this may impair the functionality of our website.

In the cases referred to in points a) and c), we shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on our part, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

III.9. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR
