4.1. Disclosure of data to third parties and third-party providers

If we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing, transfer it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this shall only take place on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if a transfer of the data to third parties, such as payment service providers, pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 (b) GDPR is required for contract fulfilment), if you have consented, if a legal obligation intends this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this occurs in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this only takes place if it occurs for the fulfilment of our (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or let the data be processed in a third country only in the presence of the special specifications of Art. 44 et seq. DGPR. This means, for example, processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. for the USA by the “Privacy Shield”) or compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).

  1. Business-related processing

We process inventory data (e.g., names and addresses as well as contact data of users) for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations and services pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR as well as for customer care, marketing, advertising and market research..

  1. Cookies and right to object to direct mail

“Cookies” are small files that are stored on users ‘ computers. Different information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit within an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies” are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the content of a shopping cart can be stored in an online shop or a login status. The term “permanent” or “persistent” refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser has been closed. Thus, the login status can be saved even if users visit it after several days. Similarly, the interests of users who are used for range measurement or marketing purposes can be stored in such a cookie. “Third-party Cookie” refer to cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for providing the online offer (otherwise it’s called “First-Party Cookies” if it’s just their cookies).

We may use temporary and permanent cookies and clarify this in the context of our data protection declaration.
If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to disable the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser.  The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional limitations of this online offer.

A general contradiction against the use of the cookies used for the purposes of online marketing can be explained in a variety of services, especially in the case of tracking via the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by turning them off in the settings of the browser. Please note that you may not be able to use all the functions of this online offer.

  1. Google Analytics

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) DGPR), we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users is usually transferred to a server of Google in the USA and stored there.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield certification and provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with further services related to the use of this online offer and the internet usage. In this process, pseudonyms of user profiles can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted in exceptional cases to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

The IP address submitted by the user’s browser are not be merged with other data provided by Google. The users can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of their browser software; the users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to the use of the online offer and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

11.1.  Explanation

Within our online offer and on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6, para 1, (f) GDPR), we use content or service offerings from third-party providers to embed their content and services such as videos or fonts (hereinafter referred to uniformly as “content”). This always requires that the third-party providers of the content learn the IP address of the user, because the content cannot be sent to the browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We only endeavour to use such content, whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. Furthermore, third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “Web beacons”) for statistical and marketing purposes.  The information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website can be evaluated with pixel tags. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the device of the user and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit time, and other information about the use of our online offer; the information can also be connected with other information from other sources.
