MailChimp

This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. This service is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. If you provide data (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This allows us to determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links you click on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to a specific recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to your interests.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.

For details, see the MailChimp privacy policy at https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

Completion of a data processing agreement

We have entered into a data processing agreement with MailChimp, in which we require MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to disclose said data to third parties.

4. COOKIES

Cookies "are used on our website. Cookies are small standardized text files that are automatically stored by your browser for a fixed period of time when you access our website for the first time. When you access the same Internet pages later on, your browser tells the server which text the previously saved cookie contains. In addition to specifying the length of time it is stored, a cookie typically contains information about your individual system settings or a random string of characters as an identification number that allows the wearness to recognize your browser when you call it up again at a later time and thus link it to a previous visit.

The cookies we use are used for the technical realization of interactive user functions, which should make the wearness more comfortable and user-friendly. For example, cookies make it possible for you to fill and manage your virtual shopping cart during your visit to the wearness with orders, and for your site settings (e. g. language, country, payment method) to be maintained during future visits.

In addition, we also use cookies in accordance with this data protection declaration to collect statistical data on the general usage behavior of our users. By evaluating this data, we gain a better understanding of our users' needs, enabling us to better target our website and improve our overall experience.

You can configure your browser to prevent cookies from being stored during your visit to the wearness. However, we would like to point out that this restricts the usability of our website.

 

5. USAGE ANALYSIS

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (" Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies to create pseudonymous user profiles. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the wearness is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the wearness on our behalf, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services associated with website and internet use for market research purposes and to design the wearness in line with your needs.

The IP address automatically transmitted to Google by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with your other data by Google. Since IP anonymization is also activated on the wearness, your IP address will be shortened before it is transferred to the USA within the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of our website and from processing this data on all websites by downloading and installing a browser add-on provided by Google. If you visit our website with a mobile device, please use the following link: Disable Google Analytics. This will set an opt-out cookie, which will prevent Google from collecting your data on this website in the future. Please note that you must click the link again if you have deleted the cookie from your mobile device or if you want to prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website on another device. The opt-out cookie does not prevent data collection by Google Analytics on other websites.

For more information about Google Analytics, please see Google's privacy policy, which can be found at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

 

6. RETARGETING

 

We partly use so-called retargeting technologies on the wearness. Retargeting is a process whereby visitors of a website can be addressed again on other websites with targeted advertising. As with usage analysis, only pseudonymous data records are used for retargeting. Cookies are set for this purpose, which contain a randomly generated identification number. Neither this identification number nor the information about your surfing behavior can be assigned to you personally. In the following, we will inform you about the retargeting providers we have commissioned and how you can prevent the respective data collection by setting an opt-out cookie. Please note that this opt-out must be set separately for each browser you use. If all cookies in your browser are deleted, the opt-out cookie is also affected.

6.1 Facebook

We use the "Custom Audiences via Your Website" retargeting function from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). For this purpose, the so-called "Facebook pixel" has been integrated on our website. When you visit our website, a connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established and a cookie is set via the Facebook pixel. Facebook receives the information that our websites have been accessed with your IP address. Facebook uses this information to provide us with statistical and anonymous data about the general use of our website and the effectiveness of our Facebook ads. If you are a Facebook member and Facebook has allowed you to do so through the privacy settings of your account, Facebook will also link the information collected from your visit to us to your account and use it to target Facebook ads. For more information, see the Facebook Privacy Policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can view and change the privacy settings of your Facebook profile at any time here. If you are not a Facebook member, you can opt out of Facebook's data processing by clicking the "Facebook" deactivation button on the YourOnlineChoices website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/. If you disable Facebook's collection of information, Facebook will only show you those Facebook ads that are not selected based on the information collected about you through the remarketing tags.

 

7. online presences / company profile in social media

Our company has online presences on various social media and platforms. This simplifies the search for the products offered to interested parties and provides an additional channel of communication.

The purpose of the processing of user data by the respective social media and platforms is usually user-specific advertising, i.e. individualised advertising can be placed which corresponds to the presumed interests of the user or results from his previous usage behaviour. For this purpose, cookies are stored on the user's end devices. These cookies can store the usage behavior and thus represent the areas of interest.

The seat of a social medium or platform may be located in a third country, i.e. a country in which the DSGVO has no direct legal effect. In this case, the transmission of data will only take place if your consent is given, if an appropriate level of data protection prevails or if another legal permission exists. US providers may operate under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which means that the requirements of the Privacy Shield Agreement are the same as those of the European Union and that the data will be treated accordingly.
We would like to make it clear that users should contact the respective third party providers directly in the case of requests for information and/or the assertion of other rights of those concerned. They have access rights to the user's data stored and processed there and can provide information and/or take appropriate measures. If you contact us directly, we will try to support your request in the best possible way. However, as we have no access to the data stored by third parties, our scope for action is limited.

Please inform yourself about the principles of data processing of the respective companies on the basis of the corresponding data protection declarations.

If you log in to Facebook after clicking on the respective button, it is possible that this information will be published on Facebook in your profile and in your timeline. In this case, Facebook may also collect and store other usage data. This may result in Facebook user profiles that go beyond what you have revealed in your Facebook profile.

9. TRANSFER OF YOUR DATA TO THIRD PARTIES

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so (e.g. in the case of a judicial information request) or authorised (e.g. passing on to technical service providers) or you have given your express prior consent.
