3 Purposes of data processing, legal bases and legitimate interests pursued by the data controller or a third party as well as categories of recipients and origin of the data
3.1 ACCESSING OUR WEBSITES/APPLICATIONS
Every time you access websites/applications, information is sent to the server of our website by the respective internet browser of your respective terminal device and temporarily stored in log files. The data records stored in this process contain the following data, which are stored until they are automatically deleted: Date and time of the request, name of the page accessed, IP address of the requesting device, referrer URL (the URL from which you came to our website), the amount of data transferred, loading time, as well as product and version information of the respective browser used, the operating system you are using and the name of your access provider.
The legal basis for the processing of the IP address is Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest results from the
Guarantee of a smooth connection establishment,
Ensuring a comfortable use of our website/application,
Evaluation of system security and stability.
A direct conclusion on your identity is not possible on the basis of the information and will not be drawn by us. You can object to the processing of your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests at any time, as explained in section 5.3.
The data will be stored and automatically deleted after the aforementioned purposes have been achieved. The standard periods for deletion are based on the criterion of necessity.
3.1.2 COOKIES, TRACKING, SOCIAL MEDIA PLUGINS
We use so-called cookies, tracking tools, targeting methods and social media plug-ins for our website. The exact nature of these methods and how your data is used for this purpose is explained in more detail in Section 3.4 below.
3.2 ESTABLISHMENT, EXECUTION AND/OR TERMINATION OF A CONTRACT
3.2.1 DATA PROCESSING UPON CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT
If you register with one of our websites and/or conclude another contract with us, we process the data required for the conclusion, implementation or termination of the contract with you. This includes:
first name, last name
Invoice and delivery address
Invoice and payment data
Bank account data and
Date of birth.
The legal basis for this is Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter b) DSGVO, i.e. you provide us with the data on the basis of the respective contractual relationship (e.g. management of your customer/user account, processing of a sales contract) between you and us. For the processing of your e-mail address in the case of a purchase via our websites, we are also obliged by legal requirements in the German Civil Code (BGB) to send an electronic order confirmation (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter c) DSGVO).
Insofar as we do not use your data for advertising purposes (see 3.3. below), we store the data collected for the processing of the contract for the duration of the contract and until the expiry of the statutory or possible contractual warranty and guarantee rights. After this period we retain the information of the contractual relationship required by commercial and tax law for the legally determined periods. For this period, the data will be processed again solely in the event of a review by the tax authorities.
In order to process a purchase contract via our websites/applications, the following data processing is also required:
Your payment data will be passed on to payment service providers commissioned by us to process the payment(s). We pass on information on your delivery address to logistics companies and shipping partners commissioned by us. In order to ensure that the goods are delivered according to your wishes, we transmit your e-mail address and, if necessary, your telephone number to the logistics company and/or shipping partner we have commissioned to handle the delivery. These partners may contact you in advance of the delivery in order to coordinate the details of the delivery with you. The respective data will be transmitted solely for the respective purposes and deleted after delivery.
3.2.2 USE OF DATA FOR FRAUD PREVENTION
The data you provide when placing an order can be used to check whether an atypical order process exists (e.g. simultaneous ordering of a large number of goods to the same address using different customer accounts). We have a legitimate interest in carrying out such a check. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest results from the possibility of avoiding attempts at fraud at our expense and thus preventing economic disadvantages for us.
3.2.3 TRANSMISSION OF DATA TO TRANSPORT SERVICE PROVIDERS
For the purpose of delivery of ordered goods we work together with logistics service providers/transport companies and/or shipping partners: The following data can be transmitted to these for the purpose of delivering the ordered goods or for announcing them: First name, last name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number (e.g. for shipping announcements).
The legal basis of the processing is art. 6 paragraph 1 letter b) DSGVO.
3.3 DATA PROCESSING FOR ADVERTISING PURPOSES
3.3.1 POSTAL ADVERTISING (INCLUDING ONLINE ADVERTISING)
In principle, we have a legitimate interest in using your data for marketing purposes. We process the following data for our own marketing purposes as well as for marketing purposes of third parties: first name, last name, postal address, year of birth, if applicable.
We are also entitled to store additional personal data collected about you in compliance with the legal requirements for our own marketing purposes and for marketing purposes of third parties. The aim is to provide you with advertising that is oriented solely to your actual or supposed needs and to avoid bothering you with unnecessary advertising.
The stored data will not be transferred to third parties. Furthermore, MD pseudonymizes / anonymizes personal data collected about you for the purpose of using the pseudonymized / anonymized data for its own marketing purposes as well as for marketing purposes of third parties (advertisers).
The pseudonymized / anonymized data can also be used to advertise you individually online, whereby advertising can be delivered by third party service providers and/or agencies. The legal basis for the use of personal data for marketing purposes is Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is to be able to send you suitable advertising and thus present our company in a way that is tailored to your personal preferences.
Reference to the right of objection
You can object to the use of your personal data for the aforementioned marketing purposes at any time free of charge with future effect at email@example.com.
If you object, your data will be blocked for further commercial data processing. We would like to point out that in exceptional cases, even after receipt of your objection, advertising material may still be sent temporarily. This is technically due to the necessary lead time within the selection process and does not mean that we have not implemented your objection.
3.3.2 PRODUCT RECOMMENDATIONS BY E-MAIL
As an existing customer of our online store you will receive regular product recommendations from us by e-mail. You will receive these product recommendations from us regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter. We use the e-mail address you provide during the purchase process to promote our own goods and/or services that are similar to those you have already purchased from us. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) DSGVO.
Note right of objection
You can contradict our product recommendations at any time with effect for the future by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.

7 No obligation to provide your data
There is no obligation to provide us with your data. However, it is possible that we may need your data to execute a contract, e.g. if you wish to purchase one or more products on our website. If you do not provide us with the personal data required for this purpose and requested by us, about which you will be informed within the scope of this data protection declaration, we may not be able to enter into a contract with you or to fulfil a contract already concluded.
Furthermore, if you prevent us from receiving data required for the use of our website, e.g. through technical measures (see in particular item 3.4), it is possible that you may not be able to use our website or not use it in full.
In other cases, too, where you do not provide us with the required data (e.g. when contacting us or participating in a competition), we are unfortunately unable to offer you the corresponding service.

The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.
