REVOCATION OF YOUR CONSENT TO DATA PROCESSING
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based may be found in this Data Protection Declaration. Should you object, we will no longer process the personal data concerned unless we are able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21 (1) of the GDPR).
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. Should you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
RIGHT OF COMPLAINT TO THE COMPETENT SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. Should you request said data to be transferred directly to another responsible party, please note that this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
INFORMATION, BLOCKING, DELETION AND CORRECTION
Provided the appropriate legal provisions apply, you have the right at any time to free information on your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of said data. You may contact us at any time at the address provided in the “Imprint” section of this website for this purpose and for further questions on the subject of personal data.
RIGHT TO RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in the “Imprint” section of this website. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we generally need time to check the details. You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data for the duration of this verification process.
- If the processing of your personal data has occurred/is occurring unlawfully, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer require your personal data, but you require it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests shall be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
OBJECTION TO ADVERTISING EMAILS
We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example, by way of spam emails.
3. DATA CAPTURE ON OUR WEBSITE
This website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offers more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies used here are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your website visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser at the time of your next website visit.
You may set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and to only allow cookies in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may become limited.
Cookies needed to carry out the electronic communication process or provide certain functions requested by you (e.g., shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) Lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g., cookies for analysis your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this Data Protection Declaration.
Cookie consent with Borlabs Cookie
SERVER LOG FILES
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information includes:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system in use
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server query
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website. It is for this purpose that the server log files must be collected.
ENQUIRIES PER EMAIL, TELEPHONE OR TELEFAX
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data resulting from it (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. Please note that this data is not passed on without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) Lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 Lit. a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 Lit. f GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing enquiries addressed to us.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
PROCESSING OF DATA (CLIENT AND CONTRACT DATA)
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that it is necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 Lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our Internet website (usage data) only insofar as this is necessary to enable the user to use the service, or to bill the user.
The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
4. ANALYSIS TOOLS AND ADVERTISING
We use the “Matomo” open-source software for analysis and statistical evaluation of website use. The software provider is InnoCraft Ltd. (150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, NZBN 6106769).
Cookies are used for this purpose; these are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by these cookies is usually sent to a Matomo server in Germany and stored there, so that technically no third-country transfer takes place. Insofar as a data transfer to InnoCraft’s company headquarters takes place outside the EEA, this is secured by an EU adequacy decision for New Zealand. We have set Matomo in such a way that IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form so as to limit direct personal references. Through IP anonymisation, the end of your IP address is replaced by zeros directly after collection, so that an assignment to individual users is not possible.
The processing of data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 P. 1 Lit. a GDPR. We are thus pursuing our legitimate interest in optimising our website for our external presentation. You may revoke your consent at any time by deleting the cookies on your browser or by changing your data protection settings.
Further information on data usage by way of the Matomo Cloud is available at matomo.org/matomo-cloud-privacy-policy/
