III. General information on Processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

We only collect and use personal data of our internet-presence users insofar as this is necessary to provide functional websites as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our website users is being done regularly only with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Whenever we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. If the processing of personal data is required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3. Storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or processing will be restricted as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be erased or restricted in processing if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

IV. Provision of the websites and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of processing

Each time our internet-presence is visited, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. 

The following data is collected:

(1) Visited website
(2) Information about the browser type and version used
(3) The user's operating system
(4) The internet service provider of the user
(5) IP-address of the user
(6) Date and time of access
(7) Manufacturer and name of the accessing device
(8) http status code
(9) Size of the requested document
(10) Websites from which the user's system reaches our website
(11) Web pages accessed by the user's system via our Internet presence

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

3. Purpose of the processing

The temporary storage of the IP-address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP-address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the internet-presence. In addition, the data serves us to optimise the internet-presence and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing according to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

4. Storage period

The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the internet-presence, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after 90 days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP-addresses of the users are erased or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Objection and erasure

The collection of data for the provision of the internet-presence and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the internet-presence. Consequently, the user has no possibility of objection.

Your consent can be withdrawn at any time by sending a message to the contact option described above or directly to Trusted Shops.

Google Analytics
Our internet-presence uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "Cookies" to help websites analyse how users use them.

The information generated by the Cookie about the use of this website is, for example, the time and place as well as your number of visits to the website.
This user data is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation has been activated on this internet-presence so your IP-address will be pre-truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP-address will be first transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this internet-presence, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the internet-presence by the users, to compile reports on the internet-presence activities and to provide the internet-presence operator with further services associated with the use of the internet-presence and the Internet. The IP-address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of Cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, in this case you may not be able to use the full functionality. Users can also prevent Google from collecting data generated by the Cookie and relating to their use of the internet-presence (including their IP-address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link. The current link is: "http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en".

“Matomo” analysis tool
Our internet-presence uses "Matomo" (formerly "Piwik"), a web analysis service provided by InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. Matomo stores Cookies on your device, which enable an analysis of your use of our internet-presence. The information collected in this way is stored exclusively on our servers, namely the following data:

(1) Two bytes of the IP-address of the users system
(2) The accessed website
(3) The website from which the user has accessed our website (referrer)
(4) The sub-pages accessed from the accessed website
(5) The time spent on the website
(6) The frequency with which the website is accessed

Our internet-presence uses Matomo with the setting "Anonymize Visitors' IP-addresses". As a result, IP-addresses are processed in a shortened form, eliminating the possibility of a direct reference to the user. The IP-address transmitted by your browser using Matomo will not be merged with other data collected by us.

With Matomo we analyse the use of our internet-presence and individual functions and offers in order to continuously improve the user experience. By statistically evaluating user behaviour we improve our offer and make it more interesting for visitors.

You can prevent the evaluation by deleting existing Cookies and deactivating the storage of Cookies in the settings of your web browser. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our internet-presence to their full extent.

The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Facebook Social Plug-In". When you visit one of our websites which contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook's servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. As a result, personal information such as your IP-address, URL, date and time and other browser-related information is transmitted to Facebook and stored in the USA, whereby, according to Facebook in Germany, only an anonymised IP is collected.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account.

Google Conversion Tracking
This internet-presence uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").

As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking Cookie is set. These Cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the Cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.

Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different Cookie. Thus, Cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion Cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking Cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of Cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a Cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept Cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete Cookies when closing your browser. Disabling Cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

For more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, see the Google Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Conversion Cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The internet-presence operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behavior to optimize both its internet-presence and its advertising.

IX. Rights of the data subject

If your personal data are being processed, you are a „data subject“ within the meaning of the GDPR and you are entitled to assert the following rights against the controller:

1. Right of access

You can ask the controller for a confirmation whether personal data concerning you are being processed by us. If such processing has taken place, you can request the following information from the controller:

(1) purposes of the processing;
(2) categories of personal data concerned;
(3) recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;
(4) where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;
(5) existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject or to object to such processing;
(6) the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
(7) where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22 (1) and (4) and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission.

2. Right to rectification

You have a right to assert rectification and/or completion against the controller if the personal data processed concerning you are incorrect or incomplete. The controller shall make the correction without delay.

3. Right to restriction of processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) if the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
(3) if the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
(4) if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the you.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the processing restriction has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to erase You may request the controller to erase the personal data relating to you without delay and the controller is obliged to erase this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
(2) You have withdrawn your consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6 (1), or point (a) of Article 9 (2), and where there is no other legal ground for the processing;
(3) You have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2);
(4) The personal data have been unlawfully processed;
(5) The personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject;
(6) The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8 (1).

b) Information to Third Parties
Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17 (1) GDPR to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.

c) Exceptions
The right to erasure shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:

(1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9 (2) as well as Article 9 (3) GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) GDPR in so far as the right referred to in Article 89 (1) GDPR is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5. Right to be informed

If you have exercised your right to have the controller rectify, erase personal data or restrict the processing, he is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed by the controller about those recipients if you request it.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR or point (a) of Article 9 (2) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6 (1) GDPR; and 

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising your right to data portability pursuant to Article 20 (1) GDPR you shall have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible.

The exercise of the right referred to in Article 20 (1) GDPR shall be without prejudice to Article 17. That right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

The right referred to in Article 20 (1) GDPR shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

7. Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data based on Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of Information Society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to withdraw data protection declaration of consent

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent any time. The withdrawal of your consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until withdrawal.

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and a data controller;
(2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
(3) is based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9 (1) GDPR, unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

In the cases referred to in points (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right to complain to the supervisory authorities

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, employment or suspected infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
