Privacy policy

1. introduction
With the following information, we would like to give you as a "data subject" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under the data protection laws. In principle, it is possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you want to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

The processing of personal data, such as your name, address or e-mail address, shall always be in line with the German Data Protection Regulation (Datenschutz-Grundverordnung - DS-GVO) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to "Hinrichs Bekleidungswerk GmbH". By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.

As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or by post.

4. definitions
The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Maker when enacting the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this privacy policy:

Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. 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.

Person concerned
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).

Processing
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

Profiling
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data which consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way 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 which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Processor
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

Receiver
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

Third
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

Consent
Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject's wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.


5. legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in 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 you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c DS-GVO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).


6. technology
6.1 SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact enquiries that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser contains a "https://" instead of a "http://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

6.2 Data collection when visiting the website
When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a series of general data and information each time you or an automated system access a page. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The following can be recorded

  • the browser types and versions used,
  • the operating system used by the accessing system,
  • the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
  • the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  • the date and time of access to the website,
  • an abbreviated internet protocol address (anonymised IP address),
  • the Internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required in order to

  • to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  • optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
  • to ensure the permanent operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website
  • as well as to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

Therefore, the data and information collected will be used by us for statistical purposes only and for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as 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 any personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.

6.3 Encrypted payment transactions
If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to provide us with your payment data (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorisation), this data is required for the processing of payments.

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

With encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


7. disclosure of data to third parties
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We will only share your personal information with third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO,
  • the disclosure is permissible under Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not having your data disclosed,
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO,
  • as far as this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

8. cookies
8.1 General information about cookies
We use cookies on our website. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device and do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information is stored in the cookie that arises in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies serves, on the one hand, to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. We use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after you leave our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already been to our website when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies is necessary for the aforementioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website.

You can find all further information about the cookies we use in our Cookie declaration.


9. contents of our website9.1 Registering as a user
You have the option of registering on our website by providing personal data.

Which personal data is transmitted to us in this process can be seen from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data you enter is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for our own purposes. We may arrange for it to be passed on to one or more order processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to us.

When you register on our website, the IP address assigned by your internet service provider (ISP), the date and the time of registration are also stored. This data is stored because it is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate criminal offences that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our protection. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

Your registration with voluntary provision of personal data also enables us to offer you content or services which, due to their nature, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from our database.

Upon request, we will provide you at any time with information about which personal data we have stored about you. Furthermore, we will correct or delete personal data at your request, insofar as this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. A data protection officer named in this data protection declaration and all other employees are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

The processing of your data is in the interest of a comfortable and easy use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

9.2 Data processing when opening a customer account and for contract processing
Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO, personal data is collected and processed if you provide it to us for the execution of a contract or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. Deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done by sending a message to the above address of the person responsible. We store and use the data provided by you for the purpose of processing the contract. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked with regard to tax and commercial law retention periods and deleted after expiry of these periods, unless you have expressly consented to a further use of your data or a legally permitted further use of data has been reserved on our part, about which we inform you accordingly below.

9.3 Data processing for order handling
The personal data collected by us will be passed on to the transport company commissioned with the delivery as part of the contract processing, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods. We pass on your payment data to the commissioned payment service company or credit institution within the scope of payment processing, insofar as this is necessary for payment processing. If payment service providers are used, we explicitly inform you about this below. The legal basis for the forwarding of data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO.

  • DHL: If the goods are delivered by the transport service provider DHL (Deutsche Post AG, Charles-de-Gaulle-Straße 20, 53113 Bonn, Germany), we will pass on your e-mail address to DHL in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO prior to delivery of the goods for the purpose of coordinating a delivery date or for delivery notification, provided that you have given your express consent to this in the ordering process. Otherwise, we will only pass on the name of the recipient and the delivery address to DHL for the purpose of delivery in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. This information will only be passed on if it is necessary for the delivery of the goods. In this case, prior coordination of the delivery date with DHL or notification of delivery is not possible. The consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future vis-à-vis the responsible person named above or vis-à-vis the transport service provider DHL.
  • Hermes: If the goods are delivered by the transport service provider Hermes (Hermes Logistik Gruppe Deutschland GmbH, Essener Straße 89, 22419 Hamburg, Germany), we will pass on your e-mail address to Hermes prior to the delivery of the goods in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO for the purpose of coordinating a delivery date or for delivery notification, provided that you have given your express consent to this in the ordering process. Otherwise, we will only pass on the name of the recipient and the delivery address to Hermes for the purpose of delivery in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. This information will only be passed on if it is necessary for the delivery of the goods. In this case, prior coordination of the delivery date with Hermes or the transmission of status information of the shipment delivery is not possible. The consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future vis-à-vis the responsible person named above or vis-à-vis the transport service provider Hermes.

9.4 Conclusion of contracts for online shop, dealer and dispatch of goods
We only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary within the scope of the contract processing, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the payment service company or credit institution commissioned with the payment processing. Further transmission of data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

9.5 Contact / Contact form
Personal data is collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected in the case of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.


10. newsletter dispatch
10.1 CleverReach
This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service with which the newsletter dispatch can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. email address) is stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany or Ireland.

Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyse the behaviour of the newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analysed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis through CleverReach newsletters, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you do not want CleverReach to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe directly on the website. Please use the contact form for this purpose.

The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.

For more details, please refer to CleverReach's privacy policy at: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/datenschutz/.


11. our activities in social networks
So that we can also communicate with you in social networks and inform you about our services, we are represented there with our own pages.

We are not the original provider (responsible party) of these pages, but merely use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers.

As a precaution, we therefore point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use may therefore entail data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights, e.g. to information, deletion, objection, etc., and the processing in the social networks often takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by the providers, without this being able to be influenced by us. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behaviour is directly assigned to your own member profile of the social networks (if you are logged in here).

The described processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to be able to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give your consent to data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO in conjunction with Art. 7 DS-GVO. Art. 7 DS-GVO.

As we do not have access to the providers' databases, we would like to point out that it is best to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, correction, deletion, etc.) directly with the respective provider. Further information on the processing of your data in the social networks and the possibility to make use of your right of objection or revocation (so-called opt-out) is listed below at the respective provider of social networks used by us:

12. web analysis
12.1 Facebook Pixel (Custom Audience)
This website uses the "Facebook Pixel" of Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Facebook"). In the case of explicit consent, this allows the behaviour of users to be tracked after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook advertisement. This process is used to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and may help to optimise future advertising measures.

The data collected is anonymous for us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You may enable Facebook and its partners to serve ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes. These processing operations are only carried out with your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) of the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO).

Consent to the use of the Facebook Pixel may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, please ask your parent or guardian for permission.

Facebook Inc. with headquarters in the USA is certified for the us-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

To deactivate the use of cookies on your IT system, you can set your Internet browser so that no more cookies can be stored on your IT system in the future or so that cookies that have already been stored are deleted. However, switching off all cookies may mean that some functions on our Internet pages can no longer be carried out. You can also deactivate the use of cookies by third-party providers such as Facebook on the following website of the Digital Advertising Alliance: https://www.aboutads.info/choices/

12.2 Google Analytics
On our websites, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies (see under point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as

  • Browser type/version,
  • Operating system used,
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server request,

are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services associated with the use of the website and the internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

12.3 Google Analytics Remarketing
We have integrated Google Remarketing services on this website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that enables a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously visited the company's website. The integration of Google Remarketing thus allows a company to create user-related advertising and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.

The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is the display of interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network or to have them displayed on other Internet pages that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

Google Remarketing sets a cookie on your IT system. The cookie enables Google to recognise the visitor to our website when he or she subsequently visits websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time you visit a website on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, your internet browser automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as your IP address or surfing behaviour, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites you visit. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including your IP address, 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 pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, 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 IT system. 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 option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, you must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any Internet browser used and make the desired settings there.

You have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.

Further information and Google's applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.


13. advertising
13.1 Google AdSense
We have integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the advertisements displayed on third-party sites according to the content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows interest-related targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to integrate advertisements on our website. Google-AdSense sets a cookie on your IT system. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time you call up one of the individual pages of this website that is operated by us and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on your IT system is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as your IP address, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding 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 Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be carried out. By means of the embedded tracking pixel, Alphabet Inc. can recognise whether and when a web page has been opened by your IT system and which links you have clicked on. Among other things, tracking pixels are used to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.

Via Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes the IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of the advertisements displayed, are transferred to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may share this personal data collected via the technical process with third parties.

Google-AdSense is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/.

You have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.


14. partner and affiliate programmes
14.1 DoubleClick
This website contains components of DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick is a brand of Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA), under which special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.

DoubleClick by Google transfers data to the DoubleClick server with each impression as well as with clicks or other activities. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on your IT system. The purpose of the cookie is to optimise and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display user-relevant advertising and to create reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple displays of the same advertisement.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to process the technical procedure. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplicate placements. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables DoubleClick to record conversions.

A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie can contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier serves to identify the campaigns with which you have already been in contact.

Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website operated by us and on which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, the internet browser on your IT system is caused by the respective DoubleClick component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website.

You can prevent DoubleClick and our website from setting cookies at any time by adjusting your internet browser settings accordingly. In addition, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.

You have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.

15. plugins and other services
15.1 YouTube (videos)
We have integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website operated by us on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on your IT system is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google receive information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by you.

If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific sub-page of our website you are visiting when you call up a sub-page that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your YouTube account.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, you can prevent the transmission by logging out of your YouTube account before accessing our website.

You have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.

The privacy policy published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

15.3 Google Maps
On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order to visually present geographical information. Using this service can, for example, show you our location and make it easier for you to find us.

Information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored there when you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out of your Google user account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f DS-GVO on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalised advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the us-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on this website can then not be used.

You have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.

You can view Google's terms of use at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html and the additional terms of use for Google Maps at https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html.

Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

15.4 Google Tag Manager
This website uses Google Tag Manager, a cookie-less domain that does not collect any personal data.

With this tool, "website tags" (i.e. keywords that are integrated into HTML elements) can be implemented and managed via an interface. By using the Google Tag Manager, we can automatically track which button, link or personalised image you have actively clicked on and can then record which contents of our website are of particular interest to you.

The tool also triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have made a deactivation at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

You have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.

15.5 Google reCAPTCHA
On this website, we also use the reCAPTCHA function of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). This function is primarily used to distinguish whether an entry is made by a natural person or is abused by machine and automated processing. The service also includes the sending of the IP address and, if applicable, further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining the individual intent of actions on the Internet and the prevention of misuse and spam.

Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the us-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

Further information on Google reCAPTCHA and Google's privacy policy can be found at: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.


16. payment provider
16.1 PayPal
We have integrated components from PayPal on this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. 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 assumes trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.

In addition, PayPal offers the possibility of processing virtual payments via credit cards, direct debit or purchase on account if a user does not have a PayPal account.

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If you select one of the "PayPal" payment options during the ordering process in our online shop, your data will be automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, you consent to the transmission of personal data required for payment processing.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal are usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data that are necessary for the processing of the payment. Personal data that is necessary for the processing of the purchase contract is also personal data that is related to the respective order.

The purpose of transmitting the data is payment processing and fraud prevention. We will transmit personal data to PayPal in particular if there is a legitimate interest for the transmission. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and us may be transmitted by PayPal to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness.

PayPal may share personal data with affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors to the extent necessary to fulfil contractual obligations or to process the data on their behalf.

You have the option to revoke your consent to the handling of personal data at any time. A revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

PayPal is used in the interest of proper and smooth payment processing. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

PayPal's applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

According to Art. 12, 13 and 14 DSGVO

Purpose and scope of the processing of applicant data
Your personal application data is collected and processed exclusively for the purpose of filling vacancies within our company. Our processing of your applicant data is carried out to fulfil our pre-contractual obligations and on the basis of our legitimate interest, as well as your interest in the implementation of a fast and efficient application procedure.

Our application procedure requires that you provide us with your data. This includes personal details, contact addresses and documents such as cover letters, CVs and certificates. You can also voluntarily provide us with additional information. By submitting your application to us, you agree that we may process your data for the sole purpose of the application process to the extent we set out in this privacy policy.

Legal basis
The processing of your application is based on Art. 6 para.1 lit.b DSGVO in conjunction with. § 26 para.1 and 2 BDSG. Inclusion in our applicant pool and if we have received your application via third parties is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.a DSGVO in conjunction with. §26 para. 2 BDSG. The storage of your applicant data is subject to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f in conjunction with. § 15 para. 4 AGG.

Transmission of applications
We kindly ask you to send us your applications and other pre-contractual communication via email and to address them exclusively to bewerbung@club-of-comfort.de.
If you mistakenly use another email address of our company for your communication or an unintended communication channel (such as Facebook, Facebook jobs, job portals or messengers from other portals), we cannot guarantee DSGVO-compliant storage and deletion. In these cases, you will receive special information from us. If we receive application documents via third parties, we will also ask you for your consent to the further processing of your data.

In any case, please note that your application by email is not in encrypted form and that there are security gaps. Complete protection of your data against access by third parties is currently not possible. We recommend that you encrypt your attachments using a standard encryption programme. In this case, you can inform us of the password by telephone. Instead of applying by e-mail, you still have the option of sending us your application by post. We will digitise these applications, return the paper documents to you at our convenience and treat your application as an electronically submitted application.

Disclosure of applicant data
As a matter of principle, your data will only be forwarded to the internal departments and specialist departments of our company responsible for the specific application procedure. Your personal application data will not be passed on to other companies without your prior express consent. Your application data will not be used for any other purpose or passed on to third parties.

If, in individual cases, we use the services of an external consultant commissioned by us to fill a vacancy, we will expressly request your written consent beforehand.

Retention period of the application data
Your personal application data will be deleted automatically six months after the end of the application process. This does not apply if legal provisions prevent deletion, if further storage is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence or if you have expressly consented to longer storage.
If we receive your application documents via a third party, we will contact you immediately and ask for your consent to process your data. Without receipt of this consent, the data will be deleted 14 days after receipt.

Storage for future job postings
If we are unable to offer you any of the vacancies to be filled, but we believe on the basis of your application profile that your application may be of interest for future vacancies, we will store your personal application data for twenty-four months, provided you expressly consent to such storage and use.
During this twenty-four month period, access will be limited unless our HR department wishes to consider you for a new position, in which case access will be extended as described under "Disclosure of Candidate Data".

Data security
We have taken technical and organisational precautions to protect the data collected as part of your application from manipulation and unauthorised access.

Your rights
You have the right to obtain information about the personal data concerning you. You can also request the correction of incorrect data.
In addition, you have the right to delete data, the right to restrict data processing and the right to data portability under certain conditions.
The processing of your data is based on legal regulations. If the processing of your data is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent for future processing. Please send your revocation to: datenschutz@club-of-comfort.de

You also have the right to complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data is not lawful. In these cases, we are happy for you to contact us first so that we can deal with and resolve your complaint directly with you.

The address of the supervisory authority responsible for us is:
