1. Scope of the personal data processing

We collect and use the personal data of our users in principle only if this is required to provide a functional website and our contents and services. Personal data of our users is always collected and used only with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases where it is not possible for practical reasons to obtain consent in advance and processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

 

2. Legal bases for personal data processing

Where we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, point (a) of Art. 6 (1) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis. When the processing of personal data to perform a contract, the contracting party of which is the data subject, is necessary, point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are required to take steps prior to entering a contract. If personal data processing to fulfil a legal obligation, to which our company is subject, is necessary, point (c) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make personal data processing necessary, point (d) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a justified interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject override the first-mentioned interest, point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing.

 

3. Erasure of data and duration of storage

Personal data of the data subject shall be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage beyond this can occur if this was provided for by the European or national legislator in regulations, laws or other provisions under Union law, to which the controller is subject. Data shall be blocked or erased even if a storage period provided for by the above-mentioned standards expires unless there is a necessity for further storage of the data to enter a contract or perform a contract.

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored in the internet browser resp. by the internet browser on the user’s computer system. If a user accesses a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a character string which allows the browser to be clearly identified when the website is accessed again. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly.

Some elements of our website require that the accessing browser can be identified even after a page change. We also use cookies on our website for the purpose of analysing the surfing behaviour of our site visitors. Furthermore, we use cookies for the purpose of subsequently addressing site visitors on other websites with targeted, interest-related advertising.

You have the right to object at any time to this processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) GDPR on grounds relating to your situation. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link [https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the calling computer’s system. The following data are collected:

  1. Information on the browser type and version used
  2. User’s operating system
  3. User’s internet service provider
  4. User’s IP address
  5. Date and time of access
  6. Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
  7. Websites accessed from the user’s system via our website
  8. Name of the accessed file and quantity of data transferred
  9. Report on whether access was successful

Data are also stored in the log files of our system. Such data are not stored together with the user’s other personal data.

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR if the user has given his or her consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted while sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is deemed to have ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

The user has the option of revoking his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he or she can object to the storage of his or her personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

The processing of the users' personal data enables us to analyse our users and the surfing behaviour of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we can compile information about the users and the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. By anonymising the IP address, the interest of users in the protection of their personal data is adequately considered.

The legal basis for the processing of the users' personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes. In our case, this is the case after six months.

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted to our site by the user. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website to their full extent.

a) Web analysis by Matomo

We use the Matomo open-source software tool (formerly PIWIK) on our website to analyse internet behaviour of our users. The software sets a cookie on the user’s computer (for cookies, see above). When individual pages are accessed on our website, the following data are stored:

  1. two bytes of the IP address of the user’s accessing system
  2. the website accessed
  3. the website from which the user has reached the accessed website (referrer)
  4. the sub-pages visited from the accessed website
  5. the session length on the website
  6. how often the website is accessed

The software runs exclusively on our website servers. Personal data of users is only stored there. Data are not disclosed to third parties.

The software is set so that the IP addresses are not stored in full, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.:  192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, identification of the truncated IP address with the accessing computer is no longer possible.

For more information on the privacy settings of the Matomo software, please see the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/.

On this website, data is collected and stored for marketing, market research and optimisation purposes using the SalesViewer® technology of SalesViewer® GmbH on the basis of legitimate interests of the website operator (Art. 6 (1) lit.f GDPR).

For this purpose, a javascript-based code is used to collect company-related data and the corresponding use. The data collected with this technology is encrypted via a non-reversible one-way function (so-called hashing). The data is immediately pseudonymised and not used to personally identify the visitor to this website.

The data stored within the framework of Salesviewer will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain data to prevent its deletion.

You can object to the collection and storage of data at any time with effect for the future by clicking on this link https://www.salesviewer.com/opt-out in order to prevent the collection of data by SalesViewer® within this website in the future. This will place an opt-out cookie for this website on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again.

In our online shop, we offer users the opportunity to register by providing personal data. The data is entered in an input mask and transmitted to us and stored. The data is not passed on to third parties. The following data is collected during the registration process:

- Consumer/entrepreneur

- name

- Address details

- Company name

- e-mail address

- Telephone number

- Date of birth

In the case of individual orders under the registration, data is also requested that is required for payment with the respective means of payment selected by you ("payment data"). We pass on your payment data to the relevant payment service provider, or it is collected directly by the payment service provider as part of the payment process. In our online shop, you can pay by credit card (VISA & Mastercard), PayPal, prepayment or also on account or by direct debit. Payment processing - except for purchase on account and PayPal - is carried out by the service provider CrefoPayment GmbH und Co.KG.

For the payment methods "purchase on account" and "payment by direct debit", the order will only be released after an address and creditworthiness check has been carried out. The creditworthiness check is carried out by Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, which assigns probability values about the future payment behaviour of customers. The probability values are formed from empirical data on the requested address and recorded data on the requested person. If the forecast regarding the customer's payment behaviour is negative, the customer is requested to choose another means of payment.

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. Registration of the user is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with the user or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. We need the requested data to check and carry out your orders.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures when the data is no longer required for the implementation of the contract. Even after the conclusion of the contract, there may be a need to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations.

As a user, you have the option of cancelling your registration at any time. You can have the data stored about you changed at any time. If the data is required for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, early deletion of the data is only possible insofar as contractual or legal obligations do not prevent deletion.

Our website contains a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. If a user makes use of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored (name, address, e-mail, telephone and other data provided voluntarily). Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted while sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.

The processing of the personal data from the input masks serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is deemed to have ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

The user has the option to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he or she can object to the storage of his or her personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

You can register for events on our website. Furthermore, you can also register for appointments at trade fairs. For this purpose, we ask for various data in detail during the registration process (name, address, email, telephone).

The legal basis for the use of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. Your data will only be used for the purpose of registration and the implementation of the respective event. This data will also only be used for the intended purpose and will not be passed on to third parties.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. For the data collected during the registration process, this is the case when the data is no longer required for the implementation of the respective event. Even after the registration has been completed, there may be a need to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations.

If the data is required for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, early deletion of the data is only possible insofar as contractual or legal obligations do not prevent deletion.

On our website, you have the option of subscribing to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us.

In addition, the following data is collected during registration:

(1) IP address of the calling computer

(2) Date and time of registration

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this data protection declaration. No data will be passed on to third parties in connection with the processing of data for the dispatch of newsletters. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent.

The collection of the user's e-mail address serves to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process is used for personalisation, proof of consent or to prevent misuse of the services or the email address used.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Accordingly, the user's e-mail address is stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter.

(2) the categories of personal data which are processed;

(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

(7) any available information on the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;

(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful

(9) information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information on whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.

 

2. Right of rectification

You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller if the personal data processed concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. The controller must make the rectification without undue delay.

 

3. Right to restriction of processing

You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:

(1) if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2) the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;

(3) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or

(4) if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the controller's legitimate grounds override your grounds.

Where the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

 

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to delete

You may request the controller to erase the personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller is obliged to erase such data without undue delay if one of the following reasons applies:

 

(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

(2) You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a or Art. 9 (2) a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.

(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.

(5) The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

(6) The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8(1) GDPR.

 

b) Information to third parties

If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers that process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested them to erase all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data.

 

c) Exceptions

The right to erasure does not apply insofar as the processing is necessary to.

(1) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;

(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;

(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or

(5) for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

5. Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

 

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data has been provided, provided that.

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and

(2) the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

 

7. Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

 

8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out based on the consent until the revocation.

 

9. Automated decision-making in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects vis-à-vis you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,

(2) is permissible based on legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject, and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests; or

(3) is made with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

Regarding the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

 

10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.

We reserve the right to update this data protection declaration as necessary to adapt it to technical developments or in connection with the offer of new services or products. You can always view the current version on the website.
