X. Paypal

1. use and application of PayPal

The data controller has integrated PayPal components into this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the option of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also acts as a trustee and offers buyer protection services.

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If the person concerned selects "PayPal" as a payment option during the ordering process in our online shop, the data of the person concerned is automatically transferred to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject consents to the transmission of personal data necessary for the processing of the payment.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, surname, address, e-mail address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for payment processing. Personal data related to the respective order are also necessary for the processing of the purchase contract.

The purpose of data transmission is to process payments and prevent fraud. The person responsible for the processing will transfer personal data to PayPal in particular if there is a justified interest in the transfer. Personal data exchanged between PayPal and the data controller may be transferred by PayPal to credit reference agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness.

PayPal may share the personal information with affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors to the extent necessary to fulfill its contractual obligations or to process the information on behalf of PayPal.

The person concerned has the possibility to revoke their consent to the handling of personal data at any time vis-à-vis PayPal. A revocation does not affect personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

XI. Google Analytics

1. description and scope of data processing

We use the Google Analytics component on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Web analysis is the collection, collection and analysis of data about the behavior of users on our website. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website the user came from, which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed.

We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the user is shortened by Google and thus made anonymous if access to our Internet pages is made from a member state of the European Union or from another contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The shortening of the IP address results in anonymization. It is then no longer possible to assign the abbreviated address to a specific or identifiable person.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the user's computer. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, the Internet browser on the user's computer is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of user data, such as the abbreviated IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks.

The cookie is used to store personal data, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the user. Each time you visit our website, this data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the USA. This personal data is also stored by Google in the USA. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties.

This website also uses Google Analytics' demographic feature reports, which use data from Google's interest-based advertising and third party visitor data (such as age, gender, and interests). This data cannot be traced back to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time via the display settings.

2. legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and § 15 Para. 3 Telemediengesetz.

3. purpose of the data processing

The purpose of using Google Analytics is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the collected data and information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling online reports for us showing the activities on our website and providing other services relating to your use of our website. This enables us to further optimise our website for the user.

In these purposes also our legitimate interest lies in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

4. duration of storage

The data stored via Google Analytics is automatically deleted by us after twenty-six months.

5. possibility of opposition and removal

As already explained, the user can prevent the storage of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the storage of cookies. In addition, a cookie already stored by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your information from being collected on future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.

6. further information

More information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html can be retrieved. Google Analytics is published under https://www.google.com/intl/en explained in more detail.

XII. Processing of data in countries outside the European Economic Area

If we process data in third countries (countries outside the EU/EEA) or transfer it to companies in third countries, we will only do so if we are authorised to do so by you or by law. If there is no adequacy decision of the Commission pursuant to Art. 45 DSGVO for the third country concerned, i.e. no adequate level of data protection exists in the third country, we will ensure that your privacy and your personal data are also protected in the third country company in an appropriate and legally provided manner by means of contractual provisions (standard contractual clauses of the EU on data protection) or other suitable guarantees within the meaning of Art 46 DSGVO.

XIII. integration of third party services and content

It can happen that within this online offer contents of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps or RSS feeds, graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of these contents. We strive to use only those contents, whose respective offerers use the IP address only for the distribution of the contents. However, we have no influence on whether the third party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example.
