Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our
enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the
management of the ENTITY. The use of the Internet pages of the
ENTITY is possible without any indication of personal data;
however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services
via our website, processing of personal data could become
necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such
processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of
a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in
accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the ENTITY. By
means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of
the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data
subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are
entitled.
As the controller, the ENTITY has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to
ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However,
Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may
not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via
alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
Our Promise
ENTITY is committed to respecting your privacy and ensuring the personal information you have
entrusted to us is processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy &
Electronic Communications Regulations 2003.
These laws will be updated in May 2018 to strengthen your rights and give you control over the
personal information that organisations hold about you.
1. Definitions
The data protection declaration of the ENTITY is based on the terms used by the European
legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection
declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers

data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or
predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health,
personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
 f) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no
longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided
that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational
measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural
person.
 g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority,
agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the
processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by
Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided
for by Union or Member State law.
 h) Processor

and suggestions concerning data protection.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of the ENTITY collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or
automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server
log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by
the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-
called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an
Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
(8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our
information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the ENTITY does not draw any conclusions about
the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website
correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the longterm
viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law
enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyberattack.
Therefore, the ENTITY analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically,
with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an
optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log
files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period
necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or
other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the
performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested
in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR,
the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to
another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and
freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee

relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him
or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling
based on these provisions.
The ENTITY shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can
demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights
and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the ENTITY processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the
right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing.
This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject
objects to the ENTITY to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the ENTITY will no longer
process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to
object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by the ENTITY for scientific or historical
research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the

7. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Adobe Analytics (Omniture) / Adobe
marketing cloud
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Adobe. Adobe
Analytics (Omniture) and Adobe Marketing Cloud (hereinafter referred to as “Omniture”) is an
instrument that allows for more efficient online marketing and web analysis. Omniture is part of
Adobe Marketing Cloud. Adobe Marketing Cloud enables real-time analysis of visitor flows on
Internet sites. The real-time analysis includes project reports and allows an ad-hoc analysis of site
visitors. Customer interactions are presented in such a way as to give the controller a better
overview of users’ online activities of this website by displaying the data in simple and interactive
dashboards and converting them into reports. This enables the controller to obtain information in
real-time and to identify problems that occur more quickly.
The operating company for these services is Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6
Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Republic of Ireland.
Omniture sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject (cookies have
already been explained in advance, which may be read above). The controller ensures that the
tracking data transferred to the Adobe data center is anonymized prior to geolocation. The
anonymization is implemented by replacing the last part of the IP address. The controller has made
server-sided settings, which are used to anonymize the IP address of the data subject prior to
processing for geolocation and range measurement. Adobe will use the data and information
obtained via our website to analyze the user behavior of the data subject on behalf of the controller.
Adobe will also use the data to create reports on user activity on our behalf, as well as provide other
services to our enterprise related to the use of our website. The IP address of the data subject is not
merged with other personal data by Adobe.
As stated above, the data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our
website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and thus permanently
deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent
Omniture from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Cookies
may also be deleted by Omniture at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.
The data subject also has the possibility of objecting to and preventing the collection of data
generated by the Adobe cookie on the use of this website and the processing of this data by Adobe.
For this purpose, the data subject must click on the opt-out button under the link
http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie
used for this purpose is placed on the information technology system used by the data subject. If the
data subject deletes the cookies from his system, then the data subject must call up the link again
and set a new opt-out cookie.
With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, the possibility exists that the websites of the
controller are not fully usable anymore by the data subject.
The applicable data protection provisions of Adobe may be accessed under
http://www.adobe.com/privacy.html.
8. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is
a social network.
A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually
allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may
serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community
to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to
include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025,
United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the
Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the
controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web
browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to
download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook
component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure,
Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to
our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—
which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is
collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account
of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our
website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches
this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the
personal data.
Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our
website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook
during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject
clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not
desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook
account before a call-up to our website is made.
The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at
https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and
use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook
offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are
made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. These applications may
be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.
9. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Getty Images Photos
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Getty Images. Getty
Images is an American picture agency. A picture agency is an enterprise which provides images and
other image material on the market. Generally, picture agencies market photographs, illustrations
and footage. A picture agency licenses different customers, in particular Internet website operators,
editors of print and television media and advertising agencies, the images used by them.
The operating company of the Getty Images components is Getty Images International, 1st floor,
The Herbert Building, The Park, Carrickmines, Dublin 18, Ireland.
Getty Images allows the embedding of stock images (where possibly free of charge). Embedding is
the inclusion or integration of any specific foreign content, e.g. text, video or image data provided by
a foreign website, and then appears on the own website. A so-called embedded code is used to
embed. An embedded code is an HTML code that is integrated into a website from a website owner.
When an embedded code is integrated by a website owner, the external content of the other
website is displayed by default immediately, as long as a website is visited. To display third-party
content, the external content is loaded directly from the other Internet site. Getty Images provides
further information about the embedded of content under
http://www.gettyimages.de/resources/embed.
Through the technical implementation of the embedded code, which allows the image display of the
images of Getty Images, the IP address of the Internet connection, through which the data subject
accesses our website, is transmitted to Getty Images. Further, Getty Images collects our website,
browser type, browser language, and time and length of access. In addition, Getty Images may
collect navigation information, which is information about which of our subpages have been visited
by the data subject and which links have been clicked on, as well as other interactions that the data
subject has carried out when visiting our website. This data may be stored and analyzed by Getty
Images.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Getty Images may be retrieved
under http://www.gettyimages.de/enterprise/privacy-policy.
10. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google AdSense
On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdSense. Google AdSense is an online service
which allows the placement of advertising on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an
algorithm that selects advertisements displayed on third-party sites to match with the content of
the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-based targeting of the Internet
user, which is implemented by means of generating individual user profiles.
The operating company of Google’s AdSense component is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy,
Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
The purpose of Google’s AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our website.
Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The
definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to
analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site,
which is operated by the controller and into which a Google AdSense component is integrated, the
Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically
submit data through the Google AdSense component for the purpose of online advertising and the
settlement of commissions to Alphabet Inc. During the course of this technical procedure, the
enterprise Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data
subject, which serves Alphabet Inc., inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and
subsequently create commission settlements.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any
time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny
the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent
Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject.
Additionally, cookies already in use by Alphabet Inc. may be deleted at any time via a web browser
or other software programs.
Furthermore, Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature
graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis through
which a statistical analysis may be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixels, Alphabet Inc.
is able to determine if and when a website was opened by a data subject, and which links were
clicked on by the data subject. Tracking pixels serve, inter alia, to analyze the flow of visitors on a
website.
Through Google AdSense, personal data and information—which also includes the IP address, and is
necessary for the collection and accounting of the displayed advertisements—is transmitted to
Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. These personal data will be stored and processed in
the United States of America. The Alphabet Inc. may disclose the collected personal data through
this technical procedure to third parties.
Google AdSense is further explained under the following link
https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/.
11. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization
function)
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the
anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection,
gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service
collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer),
which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web
analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit
analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy,
Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat.
_anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data
subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State
of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic
Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google
uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide
online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning
the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The
definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze
the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is
operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the
Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically
submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the
settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise
Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which
serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create
commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which
the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit
to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the
data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are
stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected
through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any
time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny
the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google
Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In
addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser
or other software programs.
In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated
by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data
by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a
browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser
add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of
Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons
is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is
later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser addons
to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any
other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to
execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved
under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under
http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the
following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
12. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google-AdWords
On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a service for
Internet advertising that allows the advertiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the
Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define specific keywords
with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then displayed, when the user utilizes
the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network,
the ads are distributed on relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the
previously defined keywords.
The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain
View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.
The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the inclusion of relevant
advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the search engine
Google and an insertion of third-party advertising on our website.
If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on the information
technology system of the data subject through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above.
A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the
cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the
shopping cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion
cookie, both Google and the controller can understand whether a person who reached an AdWords
ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to
create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total
number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure of
each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other
Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.
The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data
subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the
Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America.
These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these
personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as stated above, by
means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the
setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from
placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a
cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other
software programs.
The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based advertisement of Google.
Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the link
www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.

Germany.
If the data subject chooses “immediate transfer” as the payment option in our online shop during
the ordering process, the data of the data subject will be transmitted to Sofortüberweisung. By
selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transmission of personal data required

be processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.
The applicable data protection provisions of Sofortüberweisung may be retrieved under
https://www.sofort.com/eng-DE/datenschutzerklaerung-sofort-gmbh/.
22. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent
for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the
performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when
processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the
processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations
which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries
concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which
processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing
is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to
protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case,
for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or
other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then
the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be
based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not
covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of
the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests
are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which
require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible
because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a
legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47
Sentence 2 GDPR).
23. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is
to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
24. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory
retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as
long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
25. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter
into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of
failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can
also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it
may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which
must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with
personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the
personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be
concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any
employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is
required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an
obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
26. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
27. Changes to this Data Privacy Policy
ENTITY will review this privacy notice regularly and may update it at any time for example, in the
event of changes in law or how we operate. Please do check our website from time to time. If there
are any significant changes in the way we process your personal information, we will provide a
prominent notice on our website or send you a notification.
