§ 2 Data processing for contractual fulfilment
(1) (1) Processing Purpose Your personal data that you provide to us during the order process is required in order to conclude a contract with us. You are not obliged to provide us with your personal data. However, if you do not provide us with your address, we are unable to send you the goods. For certain payment processes, we require the necessary payment data in order to transfer you to a payment service provider authorised by us. Therefore, your data that you enter during the order process is processed for the purpose of contractual fulfilment. If you send us an enquiry prior to the conclusion of contract by e-mail, by means of a contact form etc., we will process the data received in this way in order to perform pre-contractual measures and will answer e.g. your questions about our products. (2) Legal Basis The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 b) of the GDPR. (3) Recipient categories Payment providers, shipping providers, hosting providers, ERP system where applicable, suppliers where applicable (dropshipping). (4) Storage Duration We store the data required for contract processing until the expiry of the statutory warranty and, where applicable, contractual guarantee periods. We retain the data required under commercial and taxation law for the legally specified periods, generally ten years (see Sect. 257 of the German Commercial Code, Sect. 147 AO). The data processed for the purpose of carrying out pre-contractual measures is deleted as soon as the measures have been carried out and it is clear that no contract will be concluded.

If personal data provided by you is processed, you are the person concerned under the terms of the GDPR and you have the following rights with respect to us: 1.

If processing of this type takes place, you may request us to provide details about the following information: (1) The purposes for which the personal data is processed; (2) the categories of personal data processed; (3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you has been disclosed or will be disclosed; (4) the planned storage duration of the personal data relating to you or, in the absence of specific details, criteria for defining the storage duration; (5) the existence of a right to correct or delete the personal data relating to you, a right to restrict the processing by us or a right to object to this processing; (6) the existence of a right of appeal to a regulatory authority; (7) all available information about the origin of the data if the personal data is not recorded from the person concerned; (8) the existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Art.22 Para.1 and 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR and – at least in these cases – conclusive information about the logic employed as well as the scope and the intended consequences of such processing for the person concerned. You are entitled to request information as to whether the personal data relating to you is or will be transmitted to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you can request, based on the suitable guarantees as per Art.46 of the GDPR, to be notified in connection with such transmission. 2. Right to Correction You have a right to correction and/or completion with respect to us insofar as the processed personal data relating to you is incorrect or incomplete. We are obligated to implement the correction immediately. 3. Right to Restriction of Processing Under the following conditions, you may request us to restrict the processing of personal data relating to you: (1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data relating to you for a duration that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data; (2) if the processing is unlawful and you reject the deletion of the personal data and instead request that use of the personal data be restricted; (3) if we no longer require the personal data for processing purposes, but you require it in order to assert, exercise or defend legal entitlements, or (4) if you have entered an appeal against the processing as per Art. 21 Para. 1 of the GDPR and it has yet to be established whether the justified reasons to which we are entitled outweigh your reasons. If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, this data – notwithstanding its storage – may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of another natural or legal entity or for reasons of substantial public interest to the European Union or a member state. If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the aforementioned conditions, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted. 4. Right to Deletion a) Deletion obligation You can request that we delete the personal data relating to you without delay, and we are obligated to delete this data immediately insofar as one of the following reasons apply: (1) The personal data relating to you is no longer required for the purposes for which it was recorded or processed in some other form. (2) You revoke your consent that forms the basis of the processing as per Art.6 Para.1 lit.a or Art.9 Para.2 lit.a of the GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing. (3) You file an objection to the processing as per Art.21 Para.1 of the GDPR and there are no overriding reasons for the processing, or you file an objection to the processing as per Art.21 Para.2 of the GDPR. (4) The personal data relating to you was processed unlawfully. (5) The deletion of personal data relating to you is required in order to fulfil a legal obligation according to European Union law or the law of the member states by which we are governed. (6) The personal data relating to you is recorded with reference to information society services offered as per Art. 8 Para. 1 of the GDPR. b) Information to Third Parties If we have made the personal data relating to you public and if we are obligated as per Art.17 Para.1 of the GDPR to delete it, we will take appropriate measures taking into account the available technology and costs of implementation, including of a technical nature, to inform the persons responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you, as the person concerned, have requested that they delete all links to this personal data or all copies or replicas of this personal data. c) Exceptions The right to deletion does not apply insofar as processing is necessary (1) to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information; (2) to fulfil a legal obligation that requires the processing under the law of the European Union or the member states by which we are governed, or to perform a task that is in the public interest or in the execution of the official authority vested in us; (3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health as per Art.9 Para.2 lit.h and i as well as Art.9 Para.3 of the GDPR; (4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes as per Art.89 Para.1 of the GDPR, insofar as law mentioned under Section a) is likely to prevent or seriously impede the realisation of the goals of this processing, or (5) to assert, exercise or defend legal entitlements. 5. Right to Information If you have asserted the right to correction, deletion or restriction of processing against us, we are obligated to communicate this correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data relating to you was disclosed, unless this proves to be impossible or if it involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be notified of these recipients by us. 6. Right to Data Portability You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you, which you provided to us, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person without hindrance, insofar as (1) the processing is based on a consent as per Art.6 Para.1 lit.a of the GDPR or Art.9 Para.2 lit.a of the GDPR or on a contract as per Art.6 Para.1 lit.b of the GDPR and (2) processing is carried out with the help of automated processes. In exercising this right, you also have the right to ensure that the personal data relating to you is transmitted directly by us to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons shall not be impaired as a result. The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data that is required in order to perform a task in the public interest or in the execution of the official authority vested in us. 7. Right to Appeal You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to enter an appeal at any time against the processing of the personal data relating to you, which occurs due to Art.6 Para.1 lit.e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling conducted on the basis of these provisions. We will then no longer process the personal data relating to you, unless we can provide compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal entitlements. If the personal data relating to you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to enter an appeal against the processing of personal data relating to you for these advertising purposes; this shall also apply to profiling, insofar as it is associated with this type of direct marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data relating to you will no longer be processed for these purposes. You have the option, in conjunction with the use of information society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – to exercise your right to appeal by means of automated processes in which technical specifications are used. 8. Right to Revoke the Privacy Declaration You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent regarding privacy law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing conducted up until the time of revocation. 9. Automated Decision-Making in Individual Cases including Profiling You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – that has legal consequences for you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This shall not apply if the decision (1) is required for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and us, (2) is permissible due to legal regulations of the European Union or of member starts by which we are governed and if these legal regulations include suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests or (3) is taken with your explicit consent. However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data according to Art.9 Para.1 of the GDPR, insofar as Art.9 Para.2 lit.a or g does not apply, and suitable measures have been taken to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests. With regard to the cases mentioned in (1) and (3), we shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests. 10. Right of Appeal to a Regulatory Authority Irrespective of any other regulatory or judicial remedy, you have the right to appeal to a regulatory authority, in particular in the member state in which you are normally resident, of your workplace or of the location of the suspected violation if you are of the opinion that the processing of the personal data relating to you is in breach of the GDPR. The regulatory authority with whom the appeal is lodged informs the complainant of the status and outcomes of the appeal including the possibility of judicial redress according to Art.78 of the GDPR.
