What does personal data actually mean?
Personal data refers to any data that can be connected to you in any way. When you use our website/web shop, we collect and process a variety of this kind of information. This happens when you access our website, sign up to our newsletter, participate in competitions or surveys, register as a user, use any of our other services, or make a purchase via our website. The nature of the data we collect and store depends entirely on how you use our website/web shop. We focus on only collecting and processing the specific, relevant data pertaining to your particular type of interaction.
Personal data that you actively make available to us
When you complete a contact form, sign up to our newsletter, participate in a competition, register as a user, or in some other way actively provide us with information about yourself via one of our websites, we collect and process this data, and in some cases save it for later use. An example of this is when you sign up to our newsletter. In this instance, we also focus on only requesting data that is relevant to this particular interaction with us.
In addition to the data that you actively make available to us, we also collect and process a variety of data relating to your use of our services. This is called user-generated data and typically includes the following types of information: a unique ID and technical information about your computer, tablet or mobile phone (including operating system, screen resolution, type of browser, etc.); your IP address; your geographical location; which pages you click on; and the flow of your interaction with the website (i.e. what your interests are).
We comply with the GDPR by taking various technical and organisational measures to ensure that your data is not accidentally or illegally deleted, published, lost, tampered with, disclosed to any unauthorised person, misused or otherwise processed in any way that contravenes legislation. Both our own web servers and our data processors are located in the EU and subject to ongoing monitoring and security checks. In the event of a security breach, we are obligated by the GDPR to inform the appropriate authorities of this immediately. We would also inform you about such a breach quickly and concisely.
It is important to us that we are completely honest about why we collect and save your data, so you can see that we are completely transparent about what we do and why we do it.
We process your data for three different purposes:
In response to your request
The data is stored for the period of time permitted in accordance with legislation and is deleted when it is no longer needed. The retention period depends on the type of data and the reason for storage. It is therefore not possible to specify a general timeframe for when information is deleted.
We also use various third parties to store and process data. These parties only process data on our behalf and may not use the data for their own purposes.
Personal data such as your name, e-mail address, etc. will only be shared if you consent to this. We only use data processors based in EU countries.
