A. Data processing

1. when accessing our website

When you visit our website our servers temporarily store each access in a log file. When this takes place the following technical data is collected, as generally occurs every time a connection is established with a web server, without any action on your part and stored by us until it is automatically deleted within six months at the latest:

  • the IP address of the requesting computer;
  • the name of the owner of the IP address range (usually your internet access provider);
  • the date and time of the access;
  • the website from which the access took place (referrer URL), if applicable with the search term used;
  • the name and the URL of the file retrieved;
  • the status code (e.g. error message);
  • your computer's operating system;
  • the browser used by you (type, version and language);

  • if applicable the username used by you for registration/authentication.

This data is collected and processed to enable our website to be used (establishment of connection), to ensure system security and stability in the long term, to optimise our internet service and for internal statistical purposes. This is where our legitimate interest pursuant to art. 6, para. 1, letter f GDPR in processing your data lies.

The IP address is also analysed together with other data for clarification and prevention during attacks on the network infrastructure or other unauthorised use or misuse of the website and, where applicable, within the context of criminal proceedings to enable identification and for any civil and criminal actions brought against the user in question.

The registration takes place in what is known as a double opt-in process, i.e. you receive an email following registration in which you are asked to confirm your registration. We only process your email address to enable us to personalise the information and offers sent to you and tailor them to take into account your interests.

Upon registration you give your consent for the processing of the data described above to enable us to regularly send our newsletter to the address provided by you, for the statistical analysis of usage behaviour and to optimise the newsletter.

According to its own information, MailChimp may also use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and display of the newsletter or for commercial purposes, to determine the countries where the recipients are based. However, MailChimp does not use the data belonging to our newsletter recipients to claim such data for itself or to pass it on to third parties.

MailChimp is certified under the US-EU Privacy Shield and therefore undertakes to comply with EU data protection guidelines. In addition we have concluded a Data Processing Agreement with MailChimp. This consists of an agreement in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process such data on our behalf in accordance with its privacy provisions and, in particular, to refrain from passing on such data to third parties.

Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised, so they cannot be traced back to you.

We store the data described above in a centralised, electronic data processing system. The data concerning you is systematically collected and linked in order to process your orders and handle the contractual services. We use software provided by Magento, 54 N Central Ave Ste 200, Campbell CA 95008, USA for this purpose. Our processing of this data using this software is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to art. 6, para. 1, letter f GDPR in the customer-friendly and efficient management of customer data.

2. Storage period

We only store personal data for as long as is required to provide the tracking services described above and for further processing within the context of our legitimate interest. Contract data is only stored by us for as long as is prescribed by statutory retention obligations. Retention obligations under which we are obliged to store data are based on accounting and tax laws. Under such provisions, business communications, contracts already concluded and accounting records must be kept for up to 10 years. To the extent that we no longer require such data to provide our services to you such data is blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and for tax-related purposes.

3. Transfer of data to third parties

We only pass on your personal data if you have expressly provided your consent, there is a statutory obligation or if we need to do this to enforce our rights, in particular when asserting claims under the contractual relationship. We also pass on your data to third parties if this is necessary to enable use of the website and to enable the contract to be performed (even outside the website), i.e. to process your order.

Various third-party providers have been mentioned in this privacy statement (e.g. in sections 3 and 8-10). Another service provider to which the personal data collected through the website may be passed on or which has access to such data is our web host HETZNER Online GmbH. The website is hosted on servers located in Germany. The transfer of data takes place for the purpose of providing and maintaining our website’s functions. This is where our legitimate interest within the meaning of art. 6, para. 1, letter f GDPR lies.

Finally we pass on your credit card information when paying by credit card on the website to your credit card issuer and to the credit card acquirer. If you decide to pay by credit card you are asked to input all necessary information. The legal basis for passing on this data lies in the performance of a contract pursuant to art. 6, para. 1, letter b GDPR. With regard to the processing of your credit card information by these third parties, we ask you to read the general terms and conditions of business and the privacy statement of your credit card issuer.

4. Transfer of personal data abroad

We are also entitled to pass on your personal data for the purposes described in this privacy statement to third companies (service providers engaged by us) located abroad. These companies are bound by privacy provisions to the same extent as we are. If the level of data protection in any given country is below the level of protection afforded in Switzerland or EU states, we will stipulate clearly in the contract that the protection of your personal data must be in line with the level of protection afforded in Switzerland or in the EU.

E. Further information

1. Right to information, rectification, deletion and restriction of processing; right to data portability

You have the right to request information about the personal data concerning you stored by us. In addition you have the right to rectify erroneous data and the right to delete your personal data, provided no statutory retention obligation or circumstances allowing us to process such data stand in the way.

You also have the right to demand that we provide a copy of the data transferred to us by you (right to data portability). If requested we will also pass on the data to a third party of your choice. You have the right to receive the data in a common data format.

You can contact us for the aforementioned purposes via this email address. In order to deal with your requests we may, as we see fit, request proof of identity.

2. Data security

We put in place appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data stored with us from manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continually improved in line with technological advancements.

You should always handle your access details confidentially and close the browser window when the visit to our website has terminated, especially if you share your computer with other people.

We also take in-house data protection very seriously. We see to it that our employees and the service companies engaged by us are bound by confidentiality and that they comply with privacy provisions.

3. Note on data transfers to the USA

For the sake of completeness for users with a place of residence or registered office in Switzerland, we draw your attention to the fact there are surveillance measures in place in the USA operated by the US authorities generally enabling the storage of all personal data concerning any persons whose data has been transferred from Switzerland to the USA.

This takes place without differentiation, restriction or exception with regard to the goal pursued and without any objective criteria enabling access by US authorities to such data and its subsequent use to be restricted to precisely defined, strictly limited purposes that might justify any interventions associated with access to this data and with its use.

We should also point out that there are no legal remedies available to persons affected from Switzerland enabling them to gain access to the data in question and to order its rectification or deletion and/or no effective judicial protection against general rights of access exercised by US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of those affected to this factual and legal position so as to enable them to take an informed decision regarding consent for the use of their data.

For users with a place of residence in an EU member state we should point out that the USA, from the perspective of the European Union - among other things for the reasons outlined in this paragraph - does not have an adequate level of data protection. Where we have explained in this privacy statement that recipients of data (e.g. Google) are based in the USA, we will not guarantee either by including contractual stipulations referring to these companies or by seeing to it that these companies are certified under the Swiss-US Privacy Shield that the data belonging to you held at our partners is adequately protected.

4. Right to lodge a complaint before the data protection supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge a complaint at any time before a data protection supervisory authority.
