II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as it is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained, and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In case the processing of personal data is required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data erasure and storage time

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

III. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

  • information about the browser type and version used
  • the user's operating system
  • the user's Internet service provider
  • the IP address of the user
  • date and time of access
  • websites from which the user's systems reach our website
  • websites accessed by the user's system via our website

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR also lies in these purposes.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

If data is stored in log files, this is the case after 30 days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, IP addresses of users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of opposition and elimination

Collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

V. Google Analytics

1. Description and scope of data processing

We use the component Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) for this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a person has accessed a website, which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The Google Analytics component is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned when accessing our website from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, the Internet browser on your terminal device is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access originated and the frequency of visits to our website. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection you use, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

2. Legal basis of data processing

The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, in order to provide us with online reports, which the activities on our Internet pages, and to provide other services in connection with the use of our Internet page.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Possibility of opposition and elimination

You can prevent the setting of cookies at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on your end device. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, you have the opportunity to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on from the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If your information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the browser add-on must be reinstalled to disable Google Analytics. If you uninstall or deactivate the browser add-on, you have the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de and https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics will be explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/#?modal_active=none.

VI. Google AdWords

1. Description and scope of data processing

We use the Google AdWords service for this website. Google allows advertisers to serve ads in both Google's search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.

The operator of Google AdWords services is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

If a person comes to our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on this person's information technology system by Google. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transferred to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits our Internet pages. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted within 30 days.

5. Possibility of opposition and elimination

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on your mobile device. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

You may also object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, you must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any Internet browser you use and make the required settings there.

Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de

VII. Google Remarketing

1. Description and scope of data processing

We have integrated the Google Remarketing service on this website. Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords that allows a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously visited the company's website. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-related advertisements and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.

Google Remarketing uses a cookie on the user's end device for this purpose. It has already been explained above what cookies are. By setting the cookie, Google will be able to recognize the visitor to our website when he or she subsequently visits websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Every time a website on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the person's Internet browser automatically identifies itself with Google. As part of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the user's surfing behaviour, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the Internet pages visited by the user. Accordingly, personal data, including the IP address of the user's Internet connection, is transferred to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits our Internet pages. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The operator of Google Remarketing services is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing allows us to display advertisements on the Google Advertising Network or on other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted within 30 days.

5. Possibility of opposition and elimination

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on your end device. In addition, a cookie already set by Google can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

You may also object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the www.google.de/settings/ads link from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the required settings there.

Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de.

VIII. Newsletter

1. Description and scope of data processing

You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us. These are:

  • e-mail address
  • first and surname
  • salutation form

In addition, the following data is collected upon registration:

  • date & time of registration
  • the website on which the user has registered (audeeyah.de or audeeyah.com)

During the registration process, your consent is obtained for the processing of the data and reference is made to this data protection declaration.

To subscribe to our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. As soon as users register on our site, they will receive an e-mail asking for confirmation of their registration. In this way we want to prevent registrations with foreign e-mail addresses.

If you purchase goods or services on our website and provide us with your e-mail address, we may subsequently use it to send you a newsletter. In such a case, the newsletter will only send direct advertising for similar goods or services of our own.

The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

2. Use of the mail service provider MailChimp

Our newsletters are sent via "MailChimp" - a newsletter service provider. This is a newsletter mailing platform of The Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE Suite 5000 Atlanta, GA 30308 USA.

All data collected by us is stored on the servers of MailChimp. The data is used by MailChimp for sending and evaluating the newsletter. Furthermore, MailChimp can use the data to optimize its own service (e.g. display of newsletters, to determine from which countries the recipients come, etc.). However, MailChimp does not use the data to write to the recipients themselves or to forward the data to third parties.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US data protection agreement "EU-US-Privacy Shield". With this certification MailChimp commits itself to comply with the EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract which obliges MailChimp to protect the user's data, to process the user's data only according to our data protection regulations and not to pass on the user's data to third parties.

3. Statistical survey and analyses

Each newsletter contains a so-called "web-beacon". This is a pixel-sized file that MailChimp retrieves when opening the newsletter. This provides MailChimp with technical information such as

  • the IP address,
  • information about the browser and the system, and
  • the time of the retrieval.

This data is used to technically improve the service.

In addition, the "web beacons" determine whether the newsletters have been opened, when they are being opened and which links are clicked on. It is possible to assign the data to individual users, but neither we nor MailChimp want to observe the individual users. Only the reading habits of the users should be recognized in order to adapt the contents to the users. Different contents should be sent according to the interests of our users.

4. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The legal basis for the dispatch of the newsletter after the sale of goods or services is in the case of similar goods and services § 7 para. 3 Unfair Competition Law.

The use of MailChimp and the performance of statistical surveys and analyses are based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to be seen in the secure and user-friendly use of the newsletter. This serves both our economic interest and the expectations of the users.

5. Purpose of data processing

The collection of the user's e-mail address serves to send the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

6. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user's e-mail address will therefore be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

The other personal data collected during the registration process will generally be deleted after a period of seven days.

7. Possibility of opposition and elimination

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose there is a corresponding link in every newsletter. This also makes it possible to revoke the consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.

IX. Registration

1. Description and scope of data processing

On our website, we offer users the opportunity to register by providing personal data. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and saved. The following data is collected during the registration process:

  • salutation form
  • first and surname
  • company
  • address (street, house number, postcode, town, country)
  • e-mail address
  • type of customer (commercial or private)

In case of the registration of a business customer from other EU countries, the VAT ID is also collected and passed on to the European Commission (Tax and Customs Union, EU VIES). The VAT ID is validated via the interface "VAT Information Exchange System (MIAS)" (see also http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/?locale=de).

At the time of registration, the following data will also be stored:

  • date
  • time

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for registration on our website. As soon as users register on our site, they will receive an e-mail asking them to confirm their registration via an activation link. In this way we want to prevent registrations with foreign e-mail addresses. The corresponding e-mails are sent via the service provider MailChimp, an offer of The Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE Suite 5000 Atlanta, GA 30308 USA.

The required data (name and e-mail address) will be used by MailChimp to send the double opt-in e-mail with the activation link. MailChimp does not pass the data on to third parties.

We also use MailChimp as part of the "Forgot Password" function. The user's name and e-mail address are sent to MailChimp. Furthermore, this data is used by MailChimp only for the intended purpose and are not passed on to third parties.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US data protection agreement "EU-US-Privacy Shield". With this certification MailChimp commits itself to comply with the EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract which obliges MailChimp to protect the user's data, to process the user's data only according to our data protection regulations and not to pass on the user's data to third parties.

Alternatively, users can register via Google Open Authentication (OAuth). All users need to do is use the "Register via Google" button. You will then be redirected to Google, where you will select and return your corresponding Google Account. We will then receive all the data necessary for registration from Google.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The legal basis for the transmission of the VAT ID to the European Commission is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, as for tax reasons we are obliged to have the VAT ID verified by the European Commission if the "commercial" type of customer has been selected or the user comes from a country of the European Union that is not Germany.

3. Purpose of data processing

A registration of the user is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with the user or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.

This is the case for data storage to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, when the data is no longer required for the execution of the contract. Even after conclusion of the contract, it may still be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations.

5. Possibility of opposition and elimination

As a user you have the possibility to cancel the registration at any time. You can change the data stored about you at any time.

If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, premature deletion of the data is only possible insofar as there are no contractual or statutory obligations to the contrary.

X. Dispatch of order confirmations

1. Description and scope of data processing

After the purchase process has been completed, we will send users an order confirmation in accordance with legal requirements. The dispatch takes place likewise via the dispatch service provider MailChimp (compare VIII. Newsletter 2).

To enable MailChimp to send the order confirmation, we send the following data to MailChimp:

  • salutation form
  • first and surname
  • e-mail address

The data will be used by MailChimp to send the order confirmation. MailChimp does not pass the data on to third parties.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US data protection agreement "EU-US-Privacy Shield". With this certification MailChimp commits itself to comply with the EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract which obliges MailChimp to protect the user's data, to process the user's data only according to our data protection regulations and not to pass on the user's data to third parties.

XI. PayPal

1. Description and scope of data processing

We have integrated the payment service PayPal on our website. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the option of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to initiate online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also acts as a trustee and provides buyer protection services.

(6) The personal data concerning you were collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 GDPR.

b. Information to third parties

If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform data processors who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.

c. Exemptions

The right to cancellation does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

(1) to exercise freedom of expression and information;
(2) for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete or limit the processing, he/she is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

The person responsible shall have the right to be informed of such recipients.

6. Right to data transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another person in charge without obstruction by the person in charge to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

(1) processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and
(2) processing is carried out by means of automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

7. Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of Information Society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
(2) the legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject is admissible and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or
(3) with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or suspect of infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
