Gathering and use of your data

The scope and type of the gathering and use of your data depends on whether you visit our websites simply to access information or to use services which are provided by us.

Should we use engaged service providers for individual functions of our service or should we wish to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you below in detail of the respective processes (all data processing). We will also state the determined criteria of the duration of the saving.

Otherwise, your data is only passed on to third parties if we are obliged to do this by law.

Use for information purposes

Should our websites be used for information purposes, we only gather the personal data which your Internet browser transfers to us automatically, such as:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the access
  • Time zone difference to GMT
  • Content of the request (concrete page)
  • Respective data quantity transferred and the access status (file transferred, file not found etc.)
  • Website from which the request originates
  • Browser type / version / language
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

The data referred to above is necessary in order to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security.

This data (logs) is/are saved for: 6 weeks. (STRATO)

Contact form

When you get in touch with us by email or via a contact form, the data notified by you (your email address, if applicable, your name and telephone number) is saved by us in order to respond to your queries. We delete the data which is gathered during this process once the saving is no longer necessary, or we restrict the processing, should statutory retention obligations apply.

Your data may be passed on to service providers who support us for the above-mentioned purpose. It goes without saying that we select these service providers carefully.
Otherwise, your data is only passed on to third parties if we are obliged to do this by law.

Use of cookies

We use cookies for our websites. Cookies are small text files which are sent to your browser by our webserver when you visit our websites and which are saved on your computer for retrieval at a later date.

This website uses cookies to the following extent:

1. Transient cookies (temporary use) Examples: Session cookie of Google Analytics (explanation in web analysis chapter)
2. Permanent cookies (time limited use) Examples: Google Analytics (explanation in web analysis chapter)
3. Third party cookies (of third party providers) Examples: Double click (explanation in use based online advertising chapter)

Cookies can generally be broken down into two categories:

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. In particular, these include the session cookies. These save a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the joint session. By means of these, your computer can be recognised again when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Permanent cookies are deleted automatically following a defined period which can vary from cookie to cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

You can configure your browser settings in accordance with your wishes and you can, for example, reject the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies. However, we wish to point out that in such a case, you may not may able to use all of the functions of this website.

The flash cookies which are used are not recorded by your browser, rather by your flash plugin. These save the necessary data, regardless of the browser which you are using and these have no automatic expiry date. Should you not wish the flash cookies to be processed, you need to install a corresponding add-on, for example "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox  (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or Adobe Flash Killer Cookie for Google Chrome.

Further information as to how cookies can be rejected via special browser plugins can also be found in the introduction to the chapter "Incorporated services" later on in our data protection declaration.

Web analysis

It is important for us to make our websites as optimal as possible and therefore make these more attractive for our visitors. In order to do so, it is necessary for us to know which parts are most popular with our visitors. For this purpose, we use the following technologies in our interest:

Google Analytics

On our websites, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google. Google Analytics uses cookies which are saved on your computer and which enable us to analyse use of the websites. The information concerning your use of our website which is generated by the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. We have activated IP anonymisation on our websites. By means of these, your IP address is shortened by Google before the transfer in Member States of the European Union or other Member States of the European Economic Area. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the websites, to compile reports concerning the website activities and to provide us with other services connected to the use of the website and the use of the Internet. The IP address which is transferred from your browser in the course of Google Analytics is not combined with other data by Google. You can prevent the saving of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin which can be obtained via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. The use of alternative plugins or the de-activation of all cookies in the settings of your browser also prevents the analysis of your use behaviour.
Alternatively, you can object to the use of your data by Google via the following link. An opt out cookie will be set which prevents the future gathering of your data when you visit our websites:

De-activate Google Analytics

Note: Should you delete your cookies, this means that the opt out cookie will also be deleted and will need to be reactivated by you.

The provider is Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

As a Google AdWords customer, we also use Google Conversion Tracking, an additional analysis service of Google Inc. Should you have come across our web shop via a Google advert (AdWords advertising above / next to the search results of Google), Google will set an additional cookie on your computer, the so-called conversion cookie. This cookie is not used to identify you personally, rather it enables us to analyse the redirections to our website via Google adverts and the resulting decisions to purchase the products we offer.
Google does not currently offer an opt out cookie for this cookie. You can also de-activate the saving of the conversion cookie by setting our browser accordingly or by using additional browser plugins.

Further information concerning Conversion Tracking of Google AdWords can be found at:
https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722022?hl=de

The provider is Google Inc,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Further information concerning data protection at Google can be found at:
https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Integrated services

In order to provide additional services, we integrate the following external services.

All services described below can be de-activated by using special plugins for your browser or by concretely preventing the necessary connection to the corresponding servers. However, please bear in mind that the use of such tools could impair everyday comfort, as many aspects of the website will no longer function as you would usually expect.

Interested readers are advised to use tools such as NoScript, uBlock Origin or uMatrix. There are many tools which wish to make Internet traffic generally more secure, however, these are not automatically data protection friendly.

If configured correctly, these tools can otherwise also prevent the web analysis referred to above or use-based advertising networks and other connections established to third party providers in this respect generally for all websites which you visit.

Google Maps

We integrate components of Google Maps into our website, in order to show you the precise location of our partner restaurants. By means of this, a connection is automatically established between your browser and the Google Maps server and as a result, your IP address is also transmitted. Should you also be logged in to Google with an existing user account at the same time you visit our websites, it is possible for Google to also assign the visit to our websites to your user behaviour. In addition, further cookies can be sent to your browser by Google. We have no control over this process and are also not informed by Google of the transmitted content.

The provider is Google Inc,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Further information concerning data protection at Google can be found at: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Social media links

Our websites contain links to various social media with corresponding logos. These are not social media plugins, rather merely a connection to our services within these media. Should you click on one of these links, your IP address is generally transmitted to the operators of the various platforms. Should you use one of these services and also be logged into your specific account, it may be the case that information relating to your surfing behaviour will be recorded by the operators of the social media. The transfer of your IP address to the operators of the accessed websites is necessary for technical reasons and applies to all websites.

Social media plugins

We currently use the following social media plugins:
YouTube
Vimeo

Processing of your personal data in countries outside the EU and the EEA

Processing of your personal data does not take place in countries outside the EU and EEA, with the exception of the social media applications: Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo.

Note:

We and the providers of web analysis, integrated services and use-based online advertising which support us cannot identify you from your IP address. Only when your IP address is compared with data of your Internet provider can a personal assignment take place.

Your rights

Overview of the rights of data subjects (your rights) in connection with the processing of data via our websites in accordance with the applicable data protection provisions.

Right to be informed
At all times, you have the right to receive information concerning the personal data relating to you which is saved, its original and recipients and the purpose of the data processing.

Right of rectification
You have the right to have your saved data corrected at any time. Should you become aware of errors, you can also correct your data yourself in your customer account.

Right of deletion / blocking
At all times, you have the right to have your saved data deleted or to have the further processing of this blocked, should we be obliged to retain your data (for example invoices) due to statutory retention obligations, see also restriction of data processing.

Right to have the data processing restricted
You have the right to restrict the data processing:

  • if you dispute the correctness of your data and cannot correct this yourself
  • if the processing is unlawful but you do not wish for the data to be deleted
  • if we as the responsible body do not generally require your data anymore, however you require it in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims
  • or should you have raised an objection to the data processing and it is not yet clear whether or legitimate reasons for continued data processing outweigh your reasons for the objection

Right to object to the processing
Should we provide you with direct advertising (also in the future), for example our newsletter, you have the right to object to this data processing. You will be additionally informed of your right of objection when you are asked to give your consent and you can also implement this easily via technical means (for example opt out link in a newsletter). This also applies to any possible profiling directly connected to the direct advertising.

Should we use your data for purposes other than the ordering in the webshop on a one-off basis due to a balancing of interests (generally we do not), you have the right at all times to object to this data processing for reasons which are connected to your specific situation. Should such data processing take place on a one-off basis, we will immediately inform you of such.
This also applies to possible data processing for statistical purposes anonymously or in the form of a pseudonym. Therefore you can, as a rule, object to all of the web analysis technologies used by us (for example Google Analytics) by means of an opt out cookie, see relevant chapter (web analysis, integrated services, social media plugins and use based online advertising).

Right of data portability
Should you so wish, we will provide you with the data which you have personally provided us with in a structured, up-to-date and machine readable format and/or transfer this to another responsible body (such as another web shop), the latter provided that this is technically possible.

Our security measures are continually improved in line with technological developments.

The transfer of your personal data is encrypted with SSL technology (https), in order to prevent access by unauthorised third parties.
