We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter.

What types of cookies are being used?
Functional cookies: These cookies are used for certain features of our website, e.g. to improve the website’s navigation, or deliver to you customised and relevant information (e.g. ads that match your interests).
Marketing Cookies: These cookies record information about your visit to the website, previously viewed pages and links you clicked. We use this information to tailor our website and displayed ads to your interests.
Essential cookies: These cookies are necessary to enable you to use our website. This includes e.g. cookies that enable you to log into the customer area or add items to your shopping cart.
Use of Google services
For the purpose of website analytics, Google Analytics automatically collects and stores data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website), from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Your IP address will not be merged with other data from Google. The data processing is based on a data processing agreement with Google.
In order to optimize the marketing of our website, we have activated the data sharing settings for "Google products and services". This allows Google to access the data collected and processed by Google Analytics and then use it to improve Google services. The data sharing to Google within the scope of these data sharing settings is based on an additional agreement between the data controllers. We have no influence on the subsequent data processing by Google.
For web analytics and advertising purposes, the extension function of Google Analytics enables the so-called DoubleClick cookie to recognize your browser when visiting other websites. Google will use this information to compile reports about your website activities and to provide other services related to the use of the website.
For advertising purposes in the Google search results as well as on the websites of third parties, the so-called Google Remarketing Cookie is used when you visit our website, which automatically enables interest-based advertising through the collection and processing of data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website), by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID and on the basis of the pages you visit. Any further data processing only takes place if you have activated the setting "personalised advertising" in your Google account. In this case, if you are logged into Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing.
For website analysis and event tracking, we use Google Ads Conversion Tracking to measure your subsequent usage behavior when you arrive on our website via a Google Ads ad. For this purpose, cookies may be used and data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website based on events specified by us, such as a visit to a website or newsletter registration) may be collected, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms.
8. Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge / other widgets
Trusted Shops widgets are integrated in this website to display Trusted Shops services (e.g. Trustmark, collected reviews) and to offer buyers Trusted Shops products after they have placed an order.
This serves to protect our legitimate interests in optimized marketing by enabling secure shopping in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests. The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops AG, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne ("Trusted Shops"). We and Trusted Shops are joint controllers in data protection terms pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR. In the following section, we inform you about the essential contents of the joint controllership agreement according to Art. 26 (2) GDPR.
8.1 Data processing when integrating the Trustbadge/other widgets
The Trustbadge is provided by a US-American CDN provider (content delivery network). An adequate level of data protection is ensured by standard data protection clauses and other contractual measures.
When the Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of the call-up, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and the call-up. Immediately after the data collection the IP address is anonymised so that the stored data cannot be assigned to you personally. The anonymised data are used in particular for statistical purposes and for error analysis.
8.2 Data processing after order completion
Provided you have given your consent, the Trustbadge accesses order information stored in your terminal equipment (order total, order number, product purchased if applicable) and your e-mail address after the order has been completed. Your e-mail address is hashed using a cryptological one-way function. The hash value is then transmitted to Trusted Shops with the order information in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
This serves to verify whether you are already registered for Trusted Shops services. If this is the case, further processing will take place in accordance with the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops. If you are not yet registered for the services or do not give your consent to automatic recognition via the Trustbadge, you will subsequently be given the opportunity to register manually for the use of the services or to conclude the insurance as part of your possibly already existing user contract.
For this purpose, the Trustbadge accesses the following information stored in the terminal equipment you use after you have completed your order: Order total, order number and email address. This is necessary so that we can offer you buyer protection. The data is only transmitted to Trusted Shops if you explicitly decide to take out buyer protection by clicking on the correspondingly designated button in the so-called Trustcard. If you decide to use the services, further processing is based on the contractual agreement with Trusted Shops in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, in order to be able to complete your registration for buyer protection and insure the order, as well as to be able to subsequently send you rating invitations by e-mail if necessary.
Trusted Shops uses service providers in the areas of hosting, monitoring and logging. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation. Processing may take place in third countries (USA and Israel). An adequate level of data protection is ensured in the case of the USA by standard data protection clauses and further contractual measures and in the case of Israel by an adequacy decision. You can find more information here.
