2. Data acquisition upon visiting our website
In case of merely informational use of our website – i.e. if you do not register with us or otherwise transmit information to us – we only collect such data which your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you access our website, we collect the following data which are technically required for us to be able to present the website to you:
• Our website visited
• Date and time of day of the access point in time
• Volume of data sent in bytes
• Source/reference from which you came to the website

Processing will be pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter f of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in the improvement of our website’s stability and functionality. There will be no passing on or other use of the data. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the server log files in case of any concrete evidence indicating unlawful use.
In order to make your visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of specific functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files stored on your terminal device. Some of our cookies used are erased again (so-called session cookies) after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser. Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable the recognition of your browser upon your next visit (so-called persistent cookies). If cookies are placed, they will collect and process to an individual scope specific user information, such as browser and location data as well as IP address values. Persistent cookies will be automatically erased after a preset duration which may differ depending on the cookie. You can see the duration of the respective cookie storage from the overview of cookie settings of your web browser.
Cookies are sometimes used to simplify the ordering process through the storage of settings (e.g. memorising the content of a virtual shopping cart for a subsequent visit to the website). If individual cookies used by us also process personal data, processing will be pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter b of the GDPR either for the execution of the contract, or pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter a of the GDPR in case of a consent granted, or pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter f of the GDPR for safeguarding our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website as well as in a customer-friendly and efficient design of the website visit.
Please note that you may set your browser such that you will be informed about the setting of cookies to then individually decide about their acceptance or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general. Each browser differs in the way it manages and administers the cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of every browser which will explain to you how you can change your cookie settings. You will find them for the individual browsers under the following links:

Email notification of availability of goods
If we offer, in our online shop, the possibility to inform you, by email, with regard to select, temporarily unavailable articles about their time of availability, you may register for our email notification service regarding the availability of goods. If you register for our email notification service regarding the availability of goods, we will send you once by email a message about the availability of the article you had selected. Your email address alone is mandatory for sending this notification. The entry of additional data is voluntary and may be used to address you personally. For sending this notification, we use the so-called double opt-in process. That means we will transmit to you a corresponding notification only if you explicitly confirmed that you consent to the receipt of such a message. We will then send you a confirmation email asking you to confirm – by clicking a corresponding link – that you want to receive such a notification.
By activating the confirmation link, you provide us with your consent to use your personal data pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter a of the GDPR. When you register for our email notification service for the availability of goods, we will store your IP address entered by the internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration to be able to track any possible abuse of your email address at a later point in time. The data which we collected when you register for our email notification service on the availability of goods will exclusively be used for the purpose of informing you about the availability of a specific article in our online shop. You may unsubscribe at any time from the email notification service on the availability of goods by a corresponding message to the controller named at the beginning. Following deregistration, your email address will be immediately erased from our distributor set up for it, unless you explicitly consented to the further use of your data or unless we reserve the right to any data use in excess thereof which is legally permitted and about which we will inform you in this Statement.

9. Verwendung von Sozialen Medien: Videos
Verwendung von Youtube-Videos
[borlabs-cookie id=”youtube” type=”btn-switch-consent” /]
This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider “YouTube”, which is part of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
The privacy-enhanced mode is used in the process which, according to the provider, only activates the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. When the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider “YouTube” sets cookies in order to collect information about user behaviour.
According to information from “YouTube”, these serve the purposes of gathering video statistics, improving user-friendliness and preventing abuse, among other things. If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want it to be assigned to your profile when you use YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even those of users who are not logged in) as user profiles and analyses them. This analysis is performed in particular pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter f of the GDPR on the basis of Google’s legitimate interest in showing personalised advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of their website. You have the right to object to the creation of this user profile; you need to contact YouTube to exercise this right.
The transmission of personal data to Google LLC’s servers in the USA is also possible within the scope of use of YouTube. A connection to the Google network is established every time this website is visited, irrespective of whether the embedded videos are played or not, which may lead to further data processing actions that we have no influence over.
You can find more information about privacy at “YouTube” in the YouTube terms of service at https://www.youtube.com/static?template=terms
and in Google’s privacy statement at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy
As far as legally required, we obtained your consent to the above presented processing of your data pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter a of the GDPR.

Google (Universal) Analytics
[borlabs-cookie id=”google-analytics” type=”btn-switch-consent” /]
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google (Universal) Analytics uses so-called “cookies” – text files stored on your terminal device and enabling the analysis of your website use. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including the truncated IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server and stored there; this may also result in a transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the U.S.A.
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” which ensures anonymisation of the IP address by truncation and precludes any direct reference to persons. Due to the extension, your IP address is truncated beforehand by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a server by Google LLC. in the U.S.A. and truncated there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and render other services for us which are connected with website use and services connected with internet use. In that case, the IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. Moreover, via a special function, Google Analytics enables the so-called “demographic characteristics”, the preparation of statistics with statements about age, gender and interests of the website visitors on the basis of an analysis of interest-related advertisement and inclusion of third-party provider information. This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of target group optimised alignment of marketing measures. However, datasets acquired via “demographic characteristics” cannot be allocated to any specific person.
You can find details of processing initiated by Google Analytics and how Google handles data from websites here:
All of the processing described above – especially setting Google Analytics cookies for reading out information on the terminal device used – will only be performed if you had provided us with your explicit consent for it pursuant to Article 6 (1), letter a of the GDPR. Without this provision of consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your website visit.
You may withdraw, at any time, your consent granted effective for the future. In order to use your withdrawal, please deactivate this service in the “cookie consent tool” provided on the website. With Google, we concluded an order processing contract for the use of Google Analytics by means of which Google is obligated to protect the data of our website visitors and not pass them on to third parties.
For the transmission of data from the EU to the U.S.A., Google here relies on so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission which are to ensure compliance with the European data protection level in the U.S.A.
