2. Data Processing

a. Scope of Processing Personal Data

We generally only process personal data of our users as far as this is necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services. Personal data is regularly collected and used only after obtaining the user’s consent. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the relevant person for processing personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the relevant person is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions. Insofar as processing personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the relevant person subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the relevant person do not prevail over the interest mentioned first, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing

b. Data Deletion and Storage Duration

The personal data of the relevant person will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. The data may be stored beyond such a time period if such storage is prescribed by the European or national legislature in provisions pertaining to European Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless it is necessary to further store the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

3. Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files

a. Description and Scope of Data Processing

Each time our website is visited, our system automatically collects data and information of the accessing computer. The following data is collected in the process:
- Information regarding the browser type and the version used
- The operating system of the user
- The Internet service provider of the user
- The IP address of the user
- Date and time of access
- Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
- Websites accessed by the user’s system via our website

These log files contain IP address or other data that enable an assignment of the data to a user. This may be the case, for example, if the link to the website from which the user accesses the website or the link to the website to which the user is switching contains personal data. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

b. Purpose of Data Processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. Storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and ensure the security of our IT systems. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context. For these purposes, our legitimate interest in the processing of data is in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

c. Duration of Storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed. If data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or made unidentifiable, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

d. Option for Objection and Removal

The collection of data for providing the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, no objection on the part of the user is possible.

4. Use of Cookies

a. Description and Scope of Data Processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is reopened. We also use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser be identified even after a page is changed. The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

- Language settings
- Articles in the shopping cart
- Log-in information

The data of the users collected in this way is pseudonymised through technical precautions. An assignment of the data to the calling user is therefore no longer possible. The data will not be stored together with other personal data of the user.
When accessing our website, users are informed by an information banner about the use of cookies for analytical purposes and referred to this data protection declaration. You can configure the settings in your Internet browser to restrict the storage of cookies. You can also restrict the storage/use of cookies by not giving your consent. When you visit our website, you are informed about the use of cookies for analytical purposes and can refuse your consent for processing the data.
The legal basis for processing personal data while using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The legal basis for processing personal data while using technically required cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The legal basis for processing personal data while using cookies for analytical purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR if the respective consent of the user is on hand.

b. Purpose of Data Processing
The purpose of using technically required cookies is the simplification of use of websites for the users. Some functions of our website cannot be provided without the use of cookies. For these functions, it is necessary that the browser is also recognised when the user switches pages. User data collected via technically required cookies is not used to create user profiles. The use of analytical cookies also serves to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through analytical cookies, we gain knowledge of how the website is used and we can then constantly optimise our services. In this purpose, our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data is warranted in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

c. Duration of Storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection.

d. Option for Objection and Removal

Cookies are stored on the computer of the user and transmitted from it to our website. This is why you, as the user, have full control of the use of cookies. By changing your browser’s settings, you may disable or limit the transmission of cookies. Cookies that are already stored may be deleted at any time. This can be performed automatically. If cookies are disabled for our website, it is possible that not all functions of the website may be used to the full extent.

c. Duration of Storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. The e-mail address of the user is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.
The newsletter is sent based on the user’s registration on the website.

If the registration serves to fulfil a contract to which the user is a party or to carry out pre-contractual actions, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR also serves as the legal basis for processing the data.

A registration of the user is required for the fulfilment of a contract with the user, or for the execution of pre-contractual measures.

This is the case for data collected during the registration process for the fulfilment of a contract or the execution of pre-contractual measures if such data is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract. Even after having entered into a contract, it may be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner to fulfil contractual or statutory requirements.
