If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary to provide you with our service. We may ask you for further information, but this is voluntary.

When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit by default. The processing of this information is absolutely necessary for the technical transmission of the web pages, the convenient use of our services and the secure operation of the server Our legitimate interest arises from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

It is not possible to draw any direct conclusions about your identity from the information and we will not do so. The information is stored and automatically deleted once the aforementioned purposes have been achieved. The standard periods for erasure are based on the criterion of necessity.

3.2 Automatically stored data

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are

- Date and time of the request

- Name of the requested file

- Page from which the file was requested

- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)

For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, this data is stored by us for a short period of time. It is not possible for us to identify individual persons from this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymised form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other databases or passed on to third parties, even in excerpts.

3.3 Making contact

When contacting us (e.g. by contact form, email, telephone or via social media), the details of the person making the enquiry are processed insofar as this is necessary to respond to the contact enquiry and any measures requested.

3.5. Cookies

Wenn Sie unsere Internetseiten besuchen, speichern wir möglicherweise Informationen auf Ihrem Computer in Form von Cookies. Viele Cookies enthalten eine sogenannte Cookie-ID. Eine Cookie-ID ist eine eindeutige Kennung des Cookies. Sie besteht aus einer Zeichenfolge, durch welche Internetseiten und Server dem konkreten Internetbrowser zugeordnet werden können, in dem das Cookie gespeichert wurde. Dies ermöglicht es den besuchten Internetseiten und Servern, den individuellen Browser der betroffenen Person von anderen Internetbrowsern, die andere Cookies enthalten, zu unterscheiden. Ein bestimmter Internetbrowser kann über die eindeutige Cookie-ID wiedererkannt und identifiziert werden.

By using session cookies, the controller can provide users of this website with a user-friendly service that would not be possible without the use of cookies. Without consent, we only use technically necessary cookies on the legal basis of legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

We only use personal cookies to improve our website or for marketing/advertising purposes with your consent. On your first visit, you can voluntarily consent to tracking or analysis via the cookie banner that appears. Your data may be passed on to partners or third-party providers. These cookies are only stored if you explicitly consent to this; the legal basis is then your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

3.6 Consent management

Usercentrics

This website uses the consent technology of Usercentrics to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies on your end device or to the use of certain technologies and to document these in compliance with data protection regulations. The provider of this technology is Usercentrics GmbH, Sendlinger Straße 7, 80331 Munich, Germany, website:

https://usercentrics.com/de/ (hereinafter referred to as "Usercentrics").

When you visit our website, the following personal data is transmitted to Usercentrics:

- Your consent(s) or the revocation of your consent(s)

- your IP address

- Information about your browser

- Information about your end device

- Time of your visit to the website

In addition, Usercentrics stores a cookie in your browser in order to be able to assign the consents given or their revocation to you. The data collected in this way is stored until you ask us to delete it, delete the Usercentrics cookie yourself or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory statutory retention obligations remain unaffected.

Usercentrics is used to obtain the legally required consent for the use of certain technologies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR.

We have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that the provider only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

3.7 Newsletter

Mailjet

This website uses Mailjet to send newsletters. The provider is Mailgun Technologies Inc, 112 E Pecan Sr #1135, San Antonio, Texas 78205, USA.

Mailjet is a service that can be used to organise and analyse the sending of newsletters, among other things. The data you enter for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter is stored on Mailjet's servers.

With the help of Mailjet, we are able to analyse our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked on particularly often.

We can also recognise whether certain previously defined actions were carried out after opening/clicking (conversion rate). For example, we can recognise whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.

Mailjet also enables us to categorise newsletter recipients according to various categories ("clustering"). Newsletter recipients can be categorised by age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better customised to the respective target groups. If you do not wish to be analysed by Mailjet, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this purpose in every newsletter message.

Detailed information on the functions of Mailjet can be found at the following link:

https://www.mailjet.de/funktion/.

You can find Mailjet's privacy policy at

https://www.mailjet.de/sicherheit-datenschutz/.

Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

You can find details here:

https://www.mailjet.de/av-vertrag/.

The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

After you unsubscribe from the newsletter distribution list, your email address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if this is necessary to prevent future mailings.

The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

We have concluded an order processing contract (AV) in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract prescribed by data protection law, which ensures that the provider processes the personal data of our website visitors only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

3.8 Hosting

Storyblok

We use the Storyblok service of the company Storyblok GmbH, Peter-Behrens-Platz 2, 4020 Linz, Austria, website: https://www.storyblok.com/.

The transmission and processing of personal data takes place exclusively on servers in the European Union.

The service is a plugin that we need in order to be able to show you all the content on our website. The service may also be used for tracking and/or advertising integration. For this reason, the legal basis is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Further information on the handling of the transferred data can be found in the provider's privacy policy at https://www.storyblok.com/legal/privacy-policy.

3.9 Fonts

Fast Fonts

This website uses so-called web fonts provided by Monotype GmbH (fonts.com or fast.fonts.net) for the standardised display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to the fonts.com servers. As a result, fonts.com becomes aware that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of fonts.com web fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4 Tools and services for analysis, statistics and marketing

4.1 Analysis and statistics

Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The Google Tag Manager is a tool that we use to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other

technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create any user profiles, does not store any cookies and does not carry out any independent analyses. It is only used to manage and display the tools integrated via it. However, Google Tag Manager records your IP address, which may also be transmitted to Google's parent company in the United States.

The Google Tag Manager is used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the fast and uncomplicated integration and management of various tools on its website. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Google Analytics (4)

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour of website visitors. The website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of visit, operating systems used and origin of the user. This data is summarised in a user ID and assigned to the respective end device of the website visitor.

We can also use Google Analytics to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Google Analytics also uses various modelling approaches to supplement the data records collected and uses machine learning technologies for data analysis.

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The use of this service is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. You can find details here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

Browser plugin

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. You can find more information on how Google Analytics handles user data in Google's privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Google signals

We use Google signals. When you visit our website, Google Analytics records your location, search history and YouTube history as well as demographic data (visitor data), among other things. This data can be used for personalised advertising with the help of Google Signals. If you have a Google account, the visitor data from Google Signal is linked to your Google account and used for personalised advertising messages. The data is also used to compile anonymised statistics on the user behaviour of our users.

Google Analytics e-commerce measurement

This website uses the "e-commerce measurement" function of Google Analytics. With the help of e-commerce measurement, the website operator can analyse the purchasing behaviour of website visitors to improve its online marketing campaigns. Information such as orders placed, average order values, shipping costs and the time from viewing to purchasing a product is recorded. This data can be summarised by Google under a transaction ID that is assigned to the respective user or their device.

Mouseflow

This website uses Mouseflow. The provider is Mouseflow Ltd, Flaesketorvet 68, 1711 Copenhagen V, Denmark (Europe) (website: https://www.mouseflow.com).

Mouseflow is a tool for analysing your user behaviour on this website. Mouseflow enables us to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Mouseflow can also determine how long you remain with the mouse pointer in a particular position. Mouseflow uses this information to create so-called heat maps, which can be used to determine which website areas are favoured by website visitors. Furthermore, we can determine how long you stayed on a page and when you left it. We can also determine at which point you cancelled your entries in a contact form (so-called conversion funnels).

Mouseflow can also be used to obtain direct feedback from website visitors. This function serves to improve the website operator's web offerings. Mouseflow uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or the use of device fingerprinting).

The storage of and access to information in the end user's terminal equipment is carried out in accordance with Section 25 (1) of the German Data Protection Act (TTDSG). The legal basis for further data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal

4.2 Advertising and marketing

Google Ads

The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising programme of Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads enables us to display adverts in the Google search engine or on third-party websites when the user enters certain search terms in Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted adverts can be displayed based on the user data available at Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). As the website operator, we can evaluate this data quantitatively by analysing, for example, which search terms led to the display of our advertisements and how many advertisements led to corresponding clicks.

The use of this service is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. You can find details here: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks and

https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

Google AdSense (not personalised)

This website uses Google AdSense, a service for integrating adverts. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use Google AdSense in "non-personalised" mode. In contrast to personalised mode, the advertisements are therefore not based on your previous user behaviour and no user profile is created for you. Instead, so-called "contextual information" is used to select the adverts. The selected adverts are then based, for example, on your location, the content of the website you are on or your current search terms. You can find out more about the differences between personalised and non-personalised targeting with Google AdSense at

https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/9007336.

Please note that cookies or comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting) may also be used when using Google Adsense in non-personalised mode. According to Google, these are used to combat fraud and abuse. The use of this service is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

You can find details here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

You can customise your advertising settings yourself in your user account. To do this, click on the following link and log in:

https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

You can find more information about Google's advertising technologies here:

https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads and

https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Microsoft Advertising

We use the Microsoft Advertising service provided by Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited (Ireland/EU) (formerly Bing Ads) on our website. Microsoft Advertising is an online marketing service that uses the Universal Event Tracking (UET) tool to help us display targeted adverts via the Microsoft Bing search engines. Microsoft Advertising uses cookies for this purpose. This involves processing personal data in the form of online identifiers (including cookie identifiers), IP addresses, device identifiers and information about device and browser settings.

Microsoft Advertising collects data via UET that we can use to track target groups thanks to remarketing lists. For this purpose, a cookie is stored on the end device used when you visit our website. This enables Microsoft Advertising to recognise that our website has been visited and to display an advertisement when Microsoft Bing or Yahoo is subsequently used. The information is also used to create conversion statistics, i.e. to record how many users have reached our website after clicking on an advert. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on our advert and were redirected to our website. However, we do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

Further information on these processing activities, the technologies used, stored data and the storage period can be found in the settings of our Consent Management Tool. Processing only takes place with your consent in accordance with § 25 TTDSG or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent via our Consent Management Tool.

In the case of Microsoft services, the transfer of data to Microsoft Corp. in the USA cannot be ruled out. Please note the information in the section "Data transfer to third countries". Further information on data protection at Microsoft can be found in Microsoft's privacy policy at https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement.

Criteo

This website uses Criteo functions. The provider is Criteo SA, 32 Rue Blanche, 75009 Paris (hereinafter "Criteo").

Criteo is used to show you interest-based adverts within the Criteo advertising network. Your interests are determined on the basis of your previous usage behaviour. For example, Criteo records which products you have viewed, placed in your shopping basket or purchased. Further details on the data collected by Criteo can be found here:

https://www.criteo.com/de/privacy/how-we-use-your-data/.

In order to be able to show you interest-based advertising, we or other Criteo partners must be able to recognise you. For this purpose, a cookie is stored on your end device or a comparable identifier is used, which links your user behaviour with a pseudonymous user profile. For details, please refer to Criteo's privacy policy at

https://www.criteo.com/de/privacy/.

Your personal data and the Criteo cookies stored in your browser are stored for a maximum of 13 months from the date of collection.

Criteo is used in the interest of targeted advertising. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Criteo and we are joint controllers within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR. An agreement on joint processing has been concluded between Criteo and us, the main contents of which Criteo describes under the following link

https://www.criteo.com/de/privacy/how-we-use-your-data/.

Facebook Pixel

This website uses Facebook's visitor action pixel to measure conversions. The provider of this service is Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries.

This allows the behaviour of site visitors to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimised.

The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. This enables Facebook to place adverts on Facebook pages and outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.

The use of this service is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

You can find details here:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum

and

https://de-.facebook.com/help/566994660333381.

Insofar as personal data is collected on our website with the help of the tool described here and forwarded to Facebook, we and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are jointly responsible for this data processing (Art. 26 GDPR). The joint responsibility is limited exclusively to the collection of the data and its transfer to Facebook. The processing carried out by Facebook after forwarding is not part of the joint responsibility. The obligations incumbent on us jointly have been set out in an agreement on joint processing. You can find the wording of the agreement at

https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum. According to this agreement, we are responsible for providing the data protection information when using the Facebook tool and for the secure implementation of the tool on our website in accordance with data protection law. Facebook is responsible for the data security of Facebook products. You can assert data subject rights (e.g. requests for information) regarding the data processed by Facebook directly with Facebook. If you assert your data subject rights with us, we are obliged to forward them to Facebook.

You can find further information on protecting your privacy in Facebook's data protection information: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You can also deactivate the remarketing function "Custom Audiences" in the settings for

Ads settings at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You must be logged in to Facebook to do this.

Adform

This website uses the online marketing tool Adform from Adform A/S Denmark. Adform uses cookies to display adverts that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports or to prevent users from seeing the same adverts more than once. Adform uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, Adform can use cookie IDs to record conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees an Adform advert and later visits the advertiser's website with the same browser and makes a purchase there. Adform cookies do not contain any personal information such as email addresses, names or addresses.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Adform server. By integrating the Adform cookie, Adform receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or clicked on one of our adverts.

In addition, the Adform cookies used enable us to understand whether you perform certain actions on our website after you have accessed or clicked on one of our display/video adverts on another platform via Adform (conversion tracking). Adform uses this cookie to understand the content you have interacted with on our websites in order to be able to send you targeted adverts later.

The storage of and access to information in the end user's terminal equipment is carried out in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG. The legal basis for further data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. This can be revoked at any time.

Adition

We use technologies from ADITION technologies AG (Germany) on our website to display interest-based advertising. Cookies are stored in the user's browser, allowing us to place adverts relevant to the user on other websites in the provider's advertising network (retargeting). Cookie IDs are used to record which adverts are displayed in which browser. This prevents the same campaign from being displayed multiple times. In addition, cookie IDs can be used to record conversions, i.e. whether a user sees an advert and later visits the advertiser's website and interacts with it. The data collected is statistically analysed in order to optimise the performance of the media campaigns. All usage data collected is stored using a pseudonym. The data collected is not used to personally identify visitors to our website and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Further information on data protection at ADITION can be found in ADITION's data protection information at www.adition.com/datenschutz-plattform/.

Further information on these processing activities, the technologies used, stored data and the storage period can be found in the cookie settings.

The storage of and access to information in the end user's terminal equipment is carried out in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG. The legal basis for further data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

AppNexus

In some areas of our website, we use AppNexus, a service for the display of usage-based advertising from AppNexus Inc, 28 W. 23rd Street New York, New York, 10010, USA. Among other things, AppNexus uses cookies that enable the use of the website to be analysed in order to display targeted, interest-based advertising. During use, your data, in particular your IP address and user activities, may be transmitted to an AppNexus server and stored there.

The storage of and access to information in the end user's terminal equipment is carried out in accordance with Section 25 (1) of the German Data Protection Act (TTDSG). The legal basis for further data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Further information on data protection can be found here in the AppNexus privacy policy at https://www.appnexus.com/en/company/platform-privacy-policy-de

Targeting360

We use the Trageting360 service from targeting360 GmbH, Gredinger Str. 24a, 90453 Nuremberg, Germany on parts of our website.

When you visit our website, a cookie is set via the targeting360 ad server, which contains a reference to your surfing behaviour. The information collected is used to address the user in an individual and personalised manner via the website or via advertising placements on third-party websites that are linked to targeting360. You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent targeting360 from setting a cookie on your information technology system. In addition, cookies already set by targeting360 can be deleted at any time via your internet browser or other software programmes.

The applicable data protection provisions of targeting360 may be retrieved under https://targeting360.de/datenschutz/.

The storage of and access to information in the end user's terminal equipment is carried out in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG.

Your data is initially analysed by selected and reliable service providers on a pseudonymised basis together with data from other participating companies in order to identify relevant marketing activities for you and to be able to generate any interested new customers. For further information, please visit info.analyticsunion.de or contact CUSTOMY GmbH & Co. KG, Klarissengasse 4, 48143 Münster. The involvement of trusted service providers and the use of special encryption procedures as well as the conclusion of a processing agreement between joint controllers (Art. 26 GDPR) ensure that the data protection requirements of the GDPR are met.

You can object to the use of your data for these purposes directly to us or more simply on the following website info.analyticsunion.de in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR. If you object, your name and address will continue to be stored in pseudonymised form by the selected service providers in order to protect your rights and ensure that you no longer receive unsolicited advertising or that your data is processed for these purposes in the future. If, in addition to your objection, you also expressly request the complete deletion of this pseudonymised data, it can no longer be ensured that you will be excluded from marketing activities in the future, as no corresponding protective comparison can then be made with your pseudonymised data record created for this purpose. You can assert all other data subject rights arising from the GDPR, in particular your rights to information, rectification, erasure and transfer, directly against us. We will then process your request with the assistance of our cooperation partners.

In accordance with Art. 11 para. 1 GDPR, the possibility of your identification on the basis of the data concerning you will only be maintained for as long as is necessary for the purpose of the respective data processing. Due to the complex encryption procedures, it is therefore possible that your data can no longer be linked to your identity. In this case, the rights of data subjects under Art. 15-20 GDPR can only be asserted if you provide additional information that enables us or our cooperation partners to clearly identify you."

5.4 Payment service providers

In the context of contractual and other legal relationships, due to legal obligations or otherwise on the basis of our legitimate interests, we offer the data subjects efficient and secure payment options and use other payment service providers in addition to banks and credit institutions (collectively "payment service providers").

The data processed by the payment service providers includes inventory data, such as the name and address, bank data, such as account numbers or credit card numbers, passwords, TANs and checksums, as well as contract, total and recipient-related information. The information is required to carry out the transactions. However, the data entered is only processed by the payment service providers and stored by them. This means that we do not receive any account or credit card-related information, but only information with confirmation or negative information about the payment. Under certain circumstances, the data may be transmitted by the payment service providers to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness. Please refer to the payment service providers' terms and conditions and data protection information.

Payment transactions are subject to the terms and conditions and the data protection notices of the respective payment service providers, which can be accessed on the respective websites or transaction applications. We also refer to these for further information and the assertion of cancellation, information and other data subject rights.

5.5 Transport service provider

For the purpose of delivering ordered goods, we work together with transport companies and/or shipping partners to whom the following data is transmitted for the purpose of delivering the ordered goods or for the purpose of shipment notification: First name, surname, postal address and, if applicable, the e-mail address and, if applicable, the telephone number. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.

5.6 Advertising and lettershop

You can object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time, either as a whole or for individual measures, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.

Subject to the legal requirements of Section 7 (3) UWG, we are authorised to use the email address or your address that you provided when concluding the contract for direct advertising for our own similar goods or services. You will receive these product recommendations from us regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter.

If you do not wish to receive such recommendations from us by email or post, you can object to the use of your address for this purpose at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A message in text form is sufficient for this. Of course, every e-mail always contains an unsubscribe link.

As part of the advertising processing of data for letters to customers by post, we also rent addresses to third parties as part of the lettershop procedure. The processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. f. GDPR in conjunction with Recital 47 GDPR. You can object to this processing at any time with effect for the future.

The lettershop procedure is used for rental and dispatch. Address rental using the lettershop procedure means that we pass on personal data to other companies that offer goods or services of interest to the customer. In the lettershop procedure, the address data selected for the respective advertising letter is not transmitted to the company that is then advertising for advertising purposes, but is given to a lettershop that combines the address data with the advertising material requested by the advertising company. After dispatch, the address data is deleted. Your data will only be processed by the advertising company when you react to the advertising, e.g. by responding to advertising offers and ordering from the advertising company.

5.7 Sovendus

Voucher offers from Sovendus GmbH: To select a voucher offer that is currently of interest to you, we transmit the hash value of your email address and your IP address to Sovendus GmbH, Hermann-Veit-Str. 6, 76135 Karlsruhe (Sovendus) in pseudonymised and encrypted form (Art. 6 (1) f GDPR). The pseudonymised hash value of the email address is used to take into account any objection to advertising by Sovendus (Art. 21 para. 3, Art. 6 para. 1 c GDPR). The IP address is used by Sovendus exclusively for data security purposes and is generally anonymised after seven days (Art. 6 (1) f GDPR). We also transmit pseudonymised order number, order value with currency, session ID, coupon code and timestamp to Sovendus for billing purposes (Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR).

5.8 New customer acquisition and existing customer acquisition

We enrich our customer data with information that we receive from selected companies for new customer acquisition and existing customer marketing. The information we receive includes characteristics of consumer behaviour, mail order information, information on the respective living situation and micro-geographical data. It comes, for example, from household surveys on consumption and lifestyle topics as well as from home evaluations. This information helps us to differentiate between active and inactive customers, to activate dormant customers, to find out how likely existing customers are to be interested in certain products and to strengthen customer relationships.

In some cases, we also receive addresses from these companies so that we can approach new customers who match our customer profile.

In this case, you will find the specific source on the advertising medium. The legal basis for the aforementioned data processing is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR in expanding your customer profile and providing you with more targeted advertising. You can object to this data processing at any time.

We would like to point out that in exceptional cases, advertising material may still be sent even after your objection has been received. This is for technical reasons and does not mean that we will not implement your objection.

8. What data protection rights do I have?

You have the right to information, correction, deletion or restriction of the processing of your stored data, a right to object to the processing as well as a right to data portability and to lodge a complaint in accordance with the requirements of data protection law.

Right to information:

You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.

Right to rectification:

If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we correct or complete it at any time.

Right to erasure:

You can demand that we erase your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate erasure, e.g. in the case of statutory retention obligations.

Irrespective of the exercise of your right to erasure, we will erase your data immediately and completely, provided that there are no legal or statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

Right to restriction of processing:

You can demand that we restrict the processing of your data if

- you contest the accuracy of the data, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of the data

- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the data and request the restriction of its use instead

- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data for the assertion or defence of legal claims, or

- you have objected to the processing of the data.

Right to data portability:

You can request that we provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and that you can transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that

- we process this data on the basis of your revocable consent or for the fulfilment of a contract between us, and

- this processing is carried out by automated means.

If technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your data directly to another controller.

Right to object:

If we process your data on the basis of a legitimate interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct advertising at any time without giving reasons.

Right to lodge a complaint:

If you are of the opinion that we are violating German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions.

If you wish to assert one of these rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.

Am I obliged to provide data?

The processing of your data is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of the contract you have entered into with us. If you do not provide us with this data, we will generally have to refuse to conclude the contract or will no longer be able to fulfil an existing contract and will therefore have to terminate it. However, you are not obliged to give your consent to data processing with regard to data that is not relevant or legally required for the fulfilment of the contract.
