III.General information about data processing

1.     Extent of personal data processing

We collect and use personal data from users of our homepage only to the extent that is necessary for keeping our website, our content and our services functioning properly.

In general, we collect and use our users’ personal data only after they give their consent. An exception to this principle applies in cases where processing data is permitted by statutory provisions or when obtaining prior con-sent is not possible.

1.     Legal basis for processing personal data

The legal basis for processing personal data is generally based on:

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR upon obtaining the consent of the data subject.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR for processing operations that serve to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party. Included here are processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR for processing required to fulfil a legal obligation.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. d GDPR, if vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require processing of personal data.

Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, if processing is necessary for purposes of the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest.

To be able to base the processing of personal data on a legitimate interest, an assessment is carried out in each case in consultation with the data protection officer for each relevant process, whereby the following three conditions must be met:

1) The controller or a third party has a legitimate interest in the processing of personal data.

2) The processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interest.

3) Interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data do not prevail.

3.     Data erasure and data storage duration

Personal data of users will be deleted or restricted as soon as the purpose for storing the data is no longer applicable. Personal data may be stored for longer than for the original purpose, if there is applicable European or national legislation through EU regulations, laws, or other regulations, to which the data controller is subject to. Personal data is also deleted or restricted, when a mandatory storage period expires, unless the personal data is needed for concluding or fulfilling a contract.

IV.Use of our website, general information

1.   Description and scope of data processing

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the user's computer system. The following information is collected:

Information about the browser type and version used, the user’s operating system, the user’s Internet service provider, the user’s IP address, Date and time of access, Websites the user’s system accesses to get to our website, Websites that the user's system invokes by accessing our website

The described data is stored in log files for our system and is not stored together with any other personal user data.

2.     Purpose and legal basis for data processing

To provide our website to users, our system must store user IP addresses temporarily. Therefore, IP addresses must be stored for the duration of a users’ session.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of our website. In addition, the data is used to optimize our website and to ensure the security of our systems. Personal data that is processed in this context, is not processed for marketing purposes.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Collecting this personal data and storing it in log files is essential to secure, provide and operate our website. Therefore, an option to object to processing in this context does not exist.

3.     Duration of storage

Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose it was processed for. Personal data that is processed in order to provide our website will be deleted after your session ends.

If your data is stored in log files, it will be deleted after seven days at the latest. It may be stored for longer, whereby the IP addresses of users are de-leted or alienated. This means, that it will no longer be possible, to assign them to individual clients.

V.General information about the use of cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are text files that are stored in your Internet browser and therefore on your computer system. If you display any website, a cookie can be stored on your operating system. Cookies can contain characteristic strings that allow unique identification of browsers.

We use cookies to make our homepage more user friendly. Some elements of our website require that your browser can be identified even after leaving our website.

TTDPA; Ger.: TTDSG:

The legal basis for the storage of cookies, device identifiers and similar tracking technologies or for the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment and access to this information is the European ePrivacy Directive in conjunction with the Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDPA; Ger.: TTDSG).

Please note that the legal basis for the processing of personal data collected in this context then results from the GDPR. The relevant legal basis for the processing of personal data in each specific case can be found below the respective cookie or the respective processing itself.

The primary legal basis for the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment - consequently in particular for the storage of cookies - is their consent, §25 Abs.1 S.1 TTDPA (Ger.: TTDSG). Consent is given when visiting our website - although this does not have to be given, of course - and can be revoked at any time in the cookie settings.

According to §25 Abs.2 Nr.2 TTDPA (Ger.: TTDSG), consent is not required if the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment or access to in-formation already stored in the end user's terminal equipment is absolutely necessary for the provider of a Telemedia service to be able to provide a Telemedia service expressly requested by the user. You can see from the cookie settings which cookies are to be classified as absolutely necessary (often also referred to as "technically necessary cookies") and therefore fall under the exception of §25 Para.2 TTDPA (Ger.: TTDSG) and therefore do not require consent.

GDPR:

When cookies are used, the following data is stored and transmitted:

An item placed in a shopping cart, Log-in information

The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies is defined in Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR. The purpose for using technically required cookies is to simplify the use of our website.

We would like to point out that some functions on our website can only be offered if cookies are enabled.

This applies to the following applications:

Shopping cart, Remembering keywords

We do not use personal data collected with technically necessary cookies to create user profiles.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer, which transmits them to our page. As a user, you therefore have control over the use of cookies. You can restrict or disable transmission of cookies by making changes to your Internet browser settings. There you can also delete cookies that have been stored. Please note that you may not be able to use all the features on our website if you deactivate cookies.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis and advertising purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent.

Cookie consent with consentmanager

We have integrated the consent management tool "consentmanager" (www.consentmanager.net) by Jaohawi AB (Håltgelvågen 1b, 72348 Västerås, Sweden, [email protected]) on our website to request consent for data processing or the use of cookies or similar functions.

You can use "consentmanager" to give or reject your consent for all functions or to give your consent for individual purposes or individual functions. The settings you have made can also be changed by you afterwards. The purpose of integrating "consentmanager" is to allow users of our website to decide on the aforementioned matters and, in the course of their continued use of our website, to offer them the opportunity to change settings they have already made. In the course of using "consentmanager", personal data as well as information of the end devices used, such as the IP address, are processed.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c in conjunction with. Art. 6 para. 3 s. 1 lit. a in conjunction with. Art. 7 para. 1 DSGVO and alternatively lit. f. By processing the data, we help our customers (according to DSGVO the responsible party) to fulfill their legal obligations (e.g., obligation to provide evidence). Our legitimate interests in the processing lie in the storage of user settings and preferences in relation to the use of cookies and other functionalities.

"Consentmanager" stores your data as long as your user settings are active. After 13 Month after the user settings have been made, the consent will be queried again. The user settings made will then be stored again for this period.

You can object to the processing. Your right to object exists for reasons arising from your particular situation. For the purpose of objection, please contact us via e-mail at [email protected] .

GDPR are fully met. This means that the processing of your data may then only take place when the third country has been declared to ensure an adequate level of protection by the European Commission or if the European Standard Contractual Clauses have been signed.

If this is the case, further processing will be carried out in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you have not yet registered for the services, you will be given the opportunity to do so for the first time. Further processing after registration also depends on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops GmbH. If you do not register, all transmitted data is automatically deleted by Trusted Shops GmbH and a personal reference is then no longer possible.

Trusted Shops uses service providers in the areas of hosting, monitoring, and logging. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation. Processing may take place in third countries (USA and Israel).
