The type of data we collect is obvious from the data input fields used on our website. We indicate for relevant field and file types whether the information is voluntary or is required to use our services.

Customer account

When you register for a customer account we usually collect name, e-mail address and password. In addition, you can provide your address in your customer account. To receive our newsletter or other marketing communication, you must opt-in upon registration or in your Account Settings; we also collect and use information regarding your newsletter/other marketing communication confirmation and the use of our information services.

In order to provide you with personalised offers and information, we might use your product ownership history or other interactions with us to analyse which offers could be of interest for you. In connection with our customer services we might collect and use further information regarding your enquiries you might have and our handling thereof, including any related correspondence.

The third party’s activities may involve them collecting the additional data that is required to process your promotional claim, using that data to process that claim and then providing the promotional reward to you (including, where relevant, making the relevant bank transfers on our behalf).

Use of cookies, webtools and social media plug-ins

Various web tools (analysis programmes and social media services) have been integrated into our website that use “cookies”. Cookies are text files that are sent by a web server to the user’s browser in order to store information on the user’s PC via the browser that is being used, for example the user’s current IP address and information about the user. The next time the web server is accessed, the applicable data regarding the user is transmitted from the Cookie file. You can deactivate the use of cookies via your browser settings at any time. Please note, however, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use certain or all features of our website.

On our website, plug-ins for the following social networks have been or are integrated (hereinafter collectively referred to as “networks” or “network”):

AddThis, operated by the company AddThis, LLC, 8000 Westpark Dr., Suite 625, McLean, VA 22102, USA (“AddThis”). Further information on data protection and data processing by AddThis as well as your options for settings and your rights can be viewed at addthis.com/privacy.

facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plug-ins are indicated with a Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue tile background a “Like” (thumbs up) symbol) or are identified with the addendum “Facebook social plug-in”. The list of Facebook social plug-ins and their appearance can be viewed at addthis.com/privacy.

Twitter, operated by Twitter, Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Twitter”). The plug-ins can be identified by the Twitter logo (bird outline/relief in various colours against various backgrounds). The various Twitter logos which are used to indicate the plug-in can be viewed on the Twitter website under about.twitter.com/en_us/company/brand-resources.html.

“G+” button of the social network Google Plus, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button can be identified by the symbol “G+” against a white background. Further information about this can be found at google.com/intl/policies/policies/privacy/.

Pinterest - Pinterest Trademark Agent, 635 High Street, Palo Alto, CA 94301 USA policy.pinterest.com/en/privacy-policy.

Instagram - Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA help.instagram.com/155833707900388.

Youtube - YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066 USA youtube.com/t/terms?reload=9.

del.icio.us - AVOS Systems, Inc., 273 S. Railroad Ave., Suite A, San Mateo, CA 94401 USA del.icio.us/privacy.

LinkedIn - LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

All of these network plug-ins essentially work according to the same basic principle as described below:

When you access our website, the network plug-ins can potentially create a direct connection between the user’s browser and the server of the respective network. The content of the relevant plug-in will be directly transmitted from the network to your browser, which will integrate it into the website. We have no influence regarding the scope of the data which is collected with the aid of the plug-in. Therefore, we can only inform you about the information which is publicly accessible according to our current state of knowledge (see above). The integrated plug-in informs the network that the user has accessed our website and informs the network of the user’s IP address. If the user is logged in to the network of this plug-in at that point in time, the network will be able to link the visit with the user’s account.

If the user interacts with these plug-ins, for example in the case of Twitter by clicking on “Tweet This” or with Facebook by clicking the ‘I like’ button or making a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted directly from the user’s browser to the network where it will then be stored. Furthermore, additional personal data can also be transmitted and stored there, for example the user’s IP address, personal browser settings and other parameters.

If you are a member of the respective network and do not want it to collect information about you via our website and to link this information with the data that the network has already stored about you, then please close this website, log out from your user account for the respective network and afterwards visit our website once again.

If you are not a member of the network or you have logged from the network before visiting our website, the possibility still exists that the network will ascertain (at least) your IP address and store it. Please note that this information is already exchanged when you visit our website, whether you interact with the plug-ins or not.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

The information generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement and is registered with the US Department of Commerce's ES-US Privacy Shield Program (for details and individual registrations go to www.privacyshield.gov). However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our website by you, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services related to the website and internet usage to us.

Facebook-Pixel - Re-Marketing / Re-Targeting

We use online retargeting technologies, such as Facebook's Facebook Pixel, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. These technologies allow us to specifically target those users with online advertising who are already interested in our products on our partners' websites. For this purpose so-called counting pixels can be integrated on our websites. When accessing our pages, a connection between your browser and the server of Facebook is established via the counting pixel. This allows Facebook to associate your visit to our pages with your Facebook account (if existing) and to see if Facebook ads have been successful. This serves us for statistical and market research purposes. We do not have exact information of the content of the data transmitted to Facebook and its use by Facebook. However, when using such tools, we make sure that our partners, in addition to the IP address, are not provided with any known data records, such as e-mail addresses or telephone numbers of our customers. Further information on the "Facebook Pixel" can be found in the Facebook privacy policy at facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If you do not wish to use such a cookie, you can prevent the use of online retargeting technologies. If you are a Facebook user, this setting can be made directly in your account. This link takes you directly to the appropriate setting: facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/. If you are not a Facebook user, you can set an opt-out cookie using a browser check. This offers e.g. following page: youronlinechoices.com.
