Definition

This Privacy Policy is based on the terminology of the GDPR. For your convenience, we would like to explain some important terms in this context in more detail:

  • Personal Data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

  • Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

  • Processing means any operation or set of operations that is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

  • Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

  • Third Party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.

1. Data for the provision of the website/software and the creation of the log files

If you access the software, we collect via server log files technically necessary data that are automatically transmitted to our server, including:

  • Date and time of access
  • IP address
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Websites accessed via the website
  • Visited page on our website; Amount of data transferred
  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • Operating system
  • Access status (e.g., whether the web page could be accessed without problems or whether you received an error message)
  • Use of website functions
  • Entered search terms
  • Access frequency of the individual web page
  • Data volume transferred

 

The temporary storage of data is necessary for the course of a website visit in order to display our website to you. This processing is technically necessary to ensure the functionality of the website and the security of the information technology systems. The legal basis of the processing is thus Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR, in order to guarantee the provision, security and stability of our website.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. The log files are stored a maximum up to 24 hours directly and exclusively accessible to administrators. After that, they are only indirectly available via the reconstruction of backup tapes and are finally deleted after a maximum four weeks.

For the provision of our online offer, we use storage space, computing capacity and software that we rent or otherwise obtain from the server Amazon Web Services, Inc. (Amazon Web Services, Inc., 410 Terry Avenue North, Seattle WA 98109] (web host customer portal) and Dinahosting SL – Rúa das Salvadas, Nr. 41, Bajo – 15705 Santiago de Compostela (A Coruña) (web host for the website). The server location for AWS is based in Frankfurt. However, personal data can be transferred to the US. The European Commission has adopted an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45(3) GDPR for the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework. Based on this decision, data transfers to organizations located in the U.S. that are certified under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework are permitted, accordingly. Amazon Web Services Inc. is certified under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework.

2. Registration, login and user account

To use our software, you need to have an account. The personal data being processed is visible and being manageable depending on your assigned role:

  • Name

In the context of logins, we also store your IP address along with the access times in order to prove the registration and prevent any misuse of the customer account.

The legal basis is Art. 6(1) s. 1 lit. b GDPR, as the aforementioned processing is necessary to provide you with your customer account, in which you can, for example, also view your order history, reorder items and process your returns. The data processing is limited to such personal data that are necessary to fulfill the scope of services agreed in our General Terms and Conditions – particularly the provision of the customer account.

You can delete your personal data, including your user account, at any time. If you have terminated your user account, the data relating to the customer account will be deleted, subject to the order data whose retention is required for legal reasons. If the processed personal data is required for the execution/termination of a contract, early deletion is not possible.

Recipients of this personal data may include, for example, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such cases, we comply with the legal requirements and, in particular, conclude appropriate contracts or agreements that serve to protect your personal data with the recipients of your personal data.

4. Data deletion and retention periods

The personal data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as your consents permitted for processing are revoked or other permissions cease to apply (e.g., if the purpose of processing this data has ceased to apply or it is not required for the purpose). If the personal data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be limited to these purposes. That is, the personal data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to personal data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law or whose storage is necessary for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person.

As far as our privacy policy contains further information on the retention and deletion of personal data, these have priority for the respective processing activities.
