When subscribing to the newsletter, your email address will be used for our own promo-tional activities, subject to your agreement until you unsubscribe the newsletter. You can withdraw your subscription at any time. We are entitled to contract third parties for the technical handling of promotional activities and to forward your data for this purpose (see also paragraph 3). 

b. Re-Targeting

We reserve the right to use so called re-targeting technology. Thereby your user behav-iour on our website will be analyzed, to provide you with promotional offers tailored to your individual needs also on our partner websites. Your user behaviour will be recorded under a pseudonym.

The re-targeting technologies are generally working with cookies (see below Section 8 for further information). 

This website uses Google AdWords Remarketing and DoubleClick by Google, both ser-vices of Google Inc. ("Google") to provide advertisements that are based on the use of previously visited websites. Google uses a so-called DoubleClick cookie, which enables recognition of your browser when you visit other websites. The information generated by the cookie about visiting these websites (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there (for the transfer of personal data to the US see section 9, Additional Information).

Google will use the above-mentioned information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on the website-activities and advertisements for the website operator and to provide further services relating to use of the website and the internet. Google may forward such information, where appropriate, to third parties, if required by law or where such third party processes such information on behalf of Google. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

To manage the services regarding usage-based advertising, we use Google Tag Man-ager. The tool tag manager does not use cookies under its domain and does not collect personal data. The tool rather triggers other tags, which in turn may capture personal data (see above). If you have placed a deactivation on a domain or cookie level, such deactivation will remain in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

You may reject re-targeting at any time by de-installing the respective cookies in the menu of your internet browser (for further information, see Section 8 below).

c. Collection of Personality Profiles

In order to provide you with personalized services and promotional information on our website (on-site targeting), we will use and analyze the data collected when you access and use the website and when you purchase in the onlineshop. The analysis of your user and, in particular, purchase pattern may result in the collection of personality profiles. A personality profile is a collection of data that permits an assessment of essential characteristics of the personality of a natural person. Usage data is attributed to pseudo-nyms only, but never to non-pseudonymised personal data.

In order to enable personalised marketing in social networks, we use the so-called Re-marketing-Pixel of Facebook on our website. If you have an account and you are logged in when visiting our website, such pixel will link your visit of our website to your account. To prevent such linking, please log out of your account before visiting our website. You may change your settings with regards to advertising in your user profile of the respective social media account.

3. Data disclosure to third parties

We will only disclose your personal data with your express consent, if required by law or if required in order to assert our rights and in particular claims resulting from the contrac-tual relationship. 

In addition, we will forward your data to third parties to the extent required for the use of the website and the contract performance, namely for the processing of your orders, for handling your purchases, for facilitating the delivery of purchases items and the pay-ments, for the provision of requested services, and for the analyzing of your user, pur-chase, and payment patterns. The use of the disclosed data by third parties is strictly limited to these mentioned purposes.

Re-garding the processing of your credit card information by those third parties, please also check the terms and conditions and data privacy statements of your credit card issuer. 

4. Credit Risk Assessment

In the case that we pay costs in advance (“Prepayment”), such as it is the case with a payment on account, we will request a credit risk assessment on the basis of mathemat-ic-statistic calculations with a credit assessment agency in order to protect our legitimate interests. For this purpose we disclose the data necessary for such an assessment to an agency. We will use the information about the statistical probability of a payment default obtained by that agency for a balanced decision on the execution, performance or termi-nation of the contract with you. The credit risk assessment may include probability values (score values) that were calculated based on scientifically accepted mathematic-statistical methods. For the calculation of the score values your name and address are used amongst other data. Your legitimate interests will be taken into consideration pur-suant to and to the extent required by the applicable laws.

9. Tracking tools

We use the Google Analytics web analytics service to ensure a customer-oriented design and the continuous improvement of our websites. We will create pseudonymized user profiles and small text files ("cookies") stored on your computer for this purpose. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie, such as 

- browser type/version;
- operating system used;
- referrer URL (the previously visited website);
- host name of the accessing computer (IP address);
- time of server inquiry; and
- device

are forwarded to and stored on servers of Google Inc., USA. The IP address will be shortened by activating the IP anonymisation ("anonymizeIP") on this website before a transfer to other Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Your anonymous IP address is not merged with other data of Google. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. In such cases, we ensure by contractual guarantees that Google Inc. complies with an adequate level of data protection.

This information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to prepare website activity reports and to provide additional services related to use of the website and the Internet for market research purposes and the customer-oriented design of these websites. This information may also be forwarded to third parties, as the case may be, if required by law or to the extent that third parties are contracted for processing these data. According to Google Inc., the IP address will never be associated with other user data. According to Google Inc. the IP addresses are anonymized in order to prevent any allocation (IP masking). 

Users can prevent the installation of cookies by configuring their browser software ac-cordingly. However, this may fully or partially disable certain functions of this website. 

For more information about the web analytics service used, please visit the Google Ana-lytics website. The following link offers guidance on how to prevent the use of your data by the web analytics service: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Further, we use the analysis tool New Relic on our website. It also records the IP ad-dress, as well as statistical data on your website usage, if logged in as a registered user (i.e. users who have registered with New Relic) even further data. For further information on the analysis tool, see http://newrelic.com/. For information on the processing of per-sonal data through the tool, visit http://newrelic.com/privacy.

A user may prevent the installation of cookies by changing the settings of the browser software. However, as may be the case, not all functions of the website may be used to full effect.

For the sake of completeness, we point out that US laws provide for supervision measures of US authorities in the US, that allow the general storage of all personal data transferred from the European Union to the USA. This happens without differentiation, limitation or exception based on the objective pursued, and without any objective criteria which would allow to restrict the access of US-authorities to personal data and their sub-sequent use to specific, strictly limited purposes, which may justify the access to this information. We also point out that in the US, there are no remedies for those affected that would allow access to personal data, particularly to rectify or erase personal data. Also, there is no effective judicial protection against general access rights of US Agen-cies at present. We explicitly remind those persons concerned of this legal and factual situation in order to allow an appropriate decision for a consent regarding the use of per-sonal data.
