8. Purposes and legal bases for the processing of personal data when using the website for information purposes
8.1. Information transmitted through the browser
During a visit to the website that is carried out for information purposes only, the user's browser automatically sends information to Acolada's server; this information is temporarily stored there in a "log file". In connection with this, Acolada collects and processes the following information and personal data in particular:
- Data and time of retrieval of the website
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Browser type and the browser settings
- Language and version of the browser software
- Operating system used
- Content of the request (specific page)
- The page last visited by the user
- The data quantity transferred
- Access status/HTTP status code
- IP address.
This information and personal data is required for the purpose of delivering the content of the website correctly and optimising it, as well as optimising advertising for the website, ensuring network and information security and protecting the website against attacks, failures and damage.
The personal data and information collected based on this is used statistically by Acolada and evaluated for the purpose of increasing data protection and data security in order to ensure a level of protection that is appropriate to the risk for the personal data processed by Acolada. The personal data collected when retrieving the website, in particular the user's IP address, will be deleted a maximum of one year after it was collected, unless a user attack or threat is identified.
Insofar as Acolada collects and processes the user's personal data, in particular the user's IP address, when the user is retrieving and visiting the website, the legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, since this processing is required to safeguard the legitimate interests of Acolada. Acolada hereby pursues the legitimate interests of increasing data protection and data security in order to ensure a level of protection that is appropriate to the risk for the personal data it is processing, in order to ensure network and information security and to optimise the website and protect it against attacks, failures and damage.
(1) Cookies are used in connection with the use of this website. Cookies are used for the purpose of personalising the website for the user's visit and making the website easier to use. Cookies are small text files that the website transmits to the cookie file of the Internet browser on the user's device. They are stored there for the event that the website is retrieved again, meaning that the user is recognised when they visit the website again. A cookie typically includes the name of the domain from which the cookie originates, the "lifetime" of the cookie and a unique identifier.
(2) The following types of cookies are used on the website:
- Session cookies: These are temporarily set cookies that remain in the browser's cookie file until the user leaves the website. Session cookies are necessary, in particular to ensure that the user can use the website and, if necessary, can register, login and place orders on the website. Session cookies are deleted when the browser session is ended.
- Persistent cookies: These are stored for longer in the browser's cookie file. The time that they are stored depends on the lifetime of the specific cookie. It may be unlimited or extend until deletion. Persistent cookies allow the website to remember the settings made by the user and data entered by them (e.g. user's registration data, the language they have selected or the region in which they are located).
(3) If the user does not wish to accept cookies, they can decline them and object to access to previously stored information by making the relevant settings in their Internet browser. The settings in the browser that permit the user to do this are different from browser to browser. You can generally find them under the data protection or cookies section of the Internet options or settings menu of the browser. If the user requires help to deactivate or delete cookies, they can refer to the help menu in the browser. Information on managing and deleting cookies and a relevant manual on this for the common browsers can be accessed at the website www.meine-cookies.org, for example. However, it should be noted that it is possible that not all interactive features and functions of the website can be used if cookies are blocked or deleted.
9. Purposes and legal bases for the processing of personal data when using the Acolada online shop
In additional to the information provided above under section I (General section of the data protection declaration), the following specific information applies to using the online shop from Acolada:
(1) The user can make purchases by specifying their personal data on the website. The personal data that the user transmits to Acolada here is obtained from the relevant form on the website intended for the processing of the purchasing process. The personal data transmitted to Acolada in this process is collected and stored for the purpose of processing an order made in this manner.
Only the mandatory information is required in order for the order to be successful. All other information is voluntary information. Acolada welcomes voluntary information, but it is not required.
Mandatory information concerning the customer includes:
- First name
- Last name
- House number
- Post code
- E-mail address
- VAT number if necessary
- Products ordered
Voluntary information includes:
- Title (Mr/Ms)
- Telephone number
Purpose of the use of data on record is in order to meet contractual obligations and to enable the customer/user to be contacted, insofar as they wish this to occur or this is required as part of the contractual relationship or it is legally permitted.
Legal basis for the processing of this personal data is Article 6(1)(1)(b) of the GDPR, since the processing is required in order to fulfil the contract between Acolada and the customer or in order to perform pre-contractual measures that are carried out at the customer's request.
10. Recipient of personal data
(1) Only an authorised group of employees can access the collected data. In addition, access is limited to the data required in order to carry out the relevant task.
(2) Personal data may be disclosed to the following recipients:
- Google Analytics
No links will be established with third parties' databases in order to carry out "profiling".
11. Duration of storage and erasure of personal data
Acolada processes and stores the user's personal data for the duration of the business relationship established between the user and Acolada. This includes the initiation of a contract (pre-contractual legal relationship) and the processing of a contract.
Furthermore, Acolada processes and stores the personal data, insofar as this is required based on legal storage and documentation obligations. These types of obligations result from the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch – HGB) and the The Fiscal Code of Germany (Abgabenordnung – AO). The retention and documentation periods specified there are up to ten years beyond the end of the business relationship or the pre-contractual legal relationship. Furthermore, other legal provisions may require a longer retention period, such as safeguarding of evidence in the course of the legal statute of limitations. In accordance with Section 195 et seqq. of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch – BGB), the regular limitation period is three years; in certain cases, limitation periods of up to 30 years are also applicable.
If the data is no longer required in order to meet contractual or legal obligations and rights, it is deleted regularly, unless further processing of this data is required in order to fulfil purposes justified by an overriding legitimate interest of Acolada within the meaning of Article 6(1)(1)(f) of the GDPR. For example, an overriding legitimate interest of Acolada is present if erasure is not possible or is only possible with excessively high outlay due to the particular type of storage, and processing for other purposes is excluded through suitable technical and organisational measures.
12. Obligation of the user with regards to provision of personal data and possible consequences of non-provision
The customer is obligated to provide Acolada with personal data if they would like to conclude a contract concerning usage of Acolada products with Acolada. In the event that they do not provide this data, a purchase or usage contract cannot be concluded.
13. No automated decision-making
Acolada does not use automated decision-making, within the meaning of Article 22(1) of the GDPR, which has legal implications for the user or significantly affects them adversely in a similar manner.
14. Accessibility of the data protection declaration
This data protection declaration can be accessed and printed out from the website footer at www.acolada.de under the
heading > Data protection.
III. Right to object in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR
15. Right to object based on the particular situation
You have the right to enter an objection to the processing of personal data relating to you at any time for reasons due to your particular situation on the basis of Article 6(1)(1)(e) (public security) or (f) (data processing on the basis of balancing interests) of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. Acolada no longer processes personal data once the objection has been entered, unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
16. Right to object in the event of direct advertising
If Acolada processes personal data from you in order to distribute direct advertising, you have the right to enter an objection to the processing of personal data relating to you for the purposes of this type of advertising at any time; this also applies to profiling insofar as it relates to this type of direct advertising. If you object to processing for the purposes of direct advertising, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
