We store the logging of the registration and the shipping address as long as there was an interest in proving the originally given consent, as a rule these are the limitation periods for civil law claims, i.e. a maximum of three years.

In doing so, we strictly comply with legal requirements. You can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact data (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) mentioned under point 1 is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find a unsubscribe link in every e-mail.
The legal basis for this is the legal permission according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 para. 3 UWG.
3.9 E-Mail Contact

If the data processing takes place for the execution of pre-contractual measures which take place at your request or, if you are already our customer, for the execution of the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) DSGVO.
We will only process further personal data if you give your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) DSGVO) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO). For example, there is a legitimate interest in replying to your e-mail.

4 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. “(“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

By doing so, Google undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use.

We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. The Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification.
If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This means that it is not possible to track cookies on the websites of AdWords customers.
The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers can see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly (deactivation option). They are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics.

12 Data protection regulations regarding the use of MailChimp
The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass them on to third parties.
The data protection regulations of MailChimp can be found here:https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy
Statistical surveys and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavour, nor that of MailChimp, to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
13 Storage time
Unless specifically stated, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes pursued.
In some cases, the legislator provides for the storage of personal data, for example in tax or commercial law. In these cases, the data will only be stored by us for these legal purposes, but will not be processed in any other way and deleted after expiry of the legal retention period.
