II. General information on data processing 

1. Scope of processing of personal data

We will only process your personal data provided necessary to provide a functional website and for our contents and services. Your personal data is only processed regularly if you have provided consent. An exception shall apply if it is not possible to obtain your consent ahead of time due to practical reasons and legal provisions allow for data processing in this case.

2. Legal basis for processing of personal data

Provided we obtain your consent to process your personal data, Art. 6 Sec. 1 a GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. When processing personal data required to fulfil a contract of which you are a contractual party, Art. 6 Sec. 1 b GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This also applies to processing required to carry out pre-contractual duties. Should processing of personal data be required to fulfil a legal obligation of our company, Art. 6 Sec. 1 c GDPR shall apply as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect an entitled business interest of our company or a third-party, and your interests, basic rights, and basic freedoms do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 Sec. 1 f GDPR shall apply as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and storage periods

Your personal data is deleted or locked once there is no longer reason to save and collect it, or if you request us to delete or lock it. For more information, refer to the section on the rights of data subjects. Data may also be stored if provided by European or national legislation in harmonised regulations, laws, or other provisions the processor is governed by. Data is also locked or deleted when a retention period set by the named standards expires, unless it should become necessary to retain the data to conclude or fulfil a contract.

III. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Processing personal data when visiting our website

When using the website for informational purposes only, we only collect the personal data your browser automatically transmits to our server via log files. We collect the following data using the server log files:

  1. Viewed website

  4. User internet service provider
  5. User IP address
  6. Date and time of access/request
  7. Website from which the request originates
  8. Website which the user switches to
  9. Amount of data sent in bytes

The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This data will not be stored together with other personal data of the user.

Your IP address is also used to perform geolocalisation, i.e. to determine from which region you visit our website. Geolocalization is used solely to display the shop information that is relevant to you.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Sec. 1 f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to provide the website to your computer. The IP address has to remain stored over the duration of the session. It is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data helps us optimise the website and ensure the security of our computer systems. In this context, the data is not analysed for marketing purposes. Art. 6 para. 1 letter f of the GDPA forms the legal basis.

4. Retention period

These data are deleted once they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected. If data are collected to provide the website, this is the case when the session is ended. These data are stored in log files for seven days. Data can also be stored beyond this period. In this case, user IP addresses are deleted or disguised so that it is no longer possible to associate them with the respective client. 

5. The right to object and rectification

We are required to collect and store specific data in log files in order for the website to work properly. The user does not have the right to object to this. You can disable geolocalization by changing the settings in your Internet browser.

Right to object
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 Sec. 1 e or f GDPR for reasons resulting from your particular situation at any time; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

Automated decision including profiling in individual cases
You have the right to not be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has a legal effect on you or affects you significantly in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision
(1) Is required to conclude or fulfil a contract between you and the processor,
(2) Is permissible based on legal provisions of the European Union or a member state to which the processor is subject and these legal provisions contain suitable measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
(3) Is carried out with your express permission.

However, these decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data as per Art. 9 Sec. 1 GDPR provided Art. 9 Sec. 2 a GDPR applies and suitable measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases named in (1) and (3), the processor shall take appropriate measures to ensure your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to request an individual on the side of the processor to intervene, to present your own position, and to contest the decision.

Right to appeal to the authorities
Notwithstanding any other administrative or judicial decision, you have the right to appeal to the authorities, especially in the member state where you are located, your workplace, or the location of the alleged violation if you believe that the processing of your personal data is in violation of GDPR.

The authority receiving the appeal shall inform the appealing party of the status and result of the appeal, including the option for a legal decision as per Art. 78 GDPR.
