data protection

Thank you for your interest in our portal www.schiesser.biz and our company. We want you to feel safe and comfortable when visiting our web pages. That is why we take the matter of protecting your personal data very seriously. We have taken every technical and organisational measure necessary to ensure that the data protection provisions contained in the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), and other statutory regulations are complied with both by us and our service providers.
The following data protection provisions aim to provide you with information about how we collect, use, process, and share your personal data.
Generally speaking, you can visit our web pages without providing any personal data, e.g. if you just want to look up certain products and browse the relevant pages. Access to our home page initiated in this way and each access to a file stored on the home page is logged. This data is stored for internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following information is logged: name of the file accessed, date and time of access, volume of data transferred, notification confirming successful access, web browser, and requesting domain. In this case, however, no personal data is transmitted by you and this information is stored separately from any personal data that may be transmitted. The IP addresses of the requesting computers are also logged.

2. Processing data

Personal data is information about your identity. This includes information such as your name, address, phone number, date of birth, and email address.
Below you will find detailed information about the type of data we collect and why we process it.

 

3. Purpose, use, and, disclosure of personal data including the respective legal bases

To the extent that you provide us with personal data, we will use this information to process your order (legal basis here is Art. 6 Par. 1, letter b of the GDPR), to respond to your queries (legal basis here is Art. 6 Par. 1, letter b of the GDPR), for advertising measures (legal basis here is Art. 6 Par. 1, letter a of the GDPR), in particular the sending of newsletters, to grant you access to specific information or offers or use of information and communication system, and within the scope of statutory requirements (legal basis here is Art. 6 Par. 1, letter c and f of the GDPR).
Your personal data will only be passed on or transmitted to third parties if this is required to complete your order, e.g. to deliver ordered goods or if you have given us your prior consent to such disclosure. These third parties may not use the data for any other purposes. Furthermore, we reserve the right to compare your personal information with data that we receive from third parties for the same purpose or indeed to supplement it accordingly.
We may disclose personal data about you if we are required to do so by law (legal basis here is Art. 6 Par. 1, letter c of the GDPR) or by way of a court verdict in order to enforce or protect our General Terms and Conditions or other agreements (legal basis here is Art. 6 Par. 1, letter f of the GDPR). This applies accordingly in relation to the processing of data. Data is not disclosed for economic purposes.
Our employees and the service providers we assign are obligated by us to maintain strict confidentiality and comply with the provisions set out in the current data protection laws. Access to personal data by our staff is restricted to those employees who require access to it in order to perform their respective duties.
While we endeavour to take all possible technical and organisational measures to store your personal data in such a way that cannot be accessed by third parties, we cannot guarantee that email communications are completely secure and we therefore recommend that the postal service be used to send confidential information.

7. Use of analysis tools

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information that is generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is saved. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in the countries and territories of other signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing other services relating to website utilisation and Internet usage vis-à-vis the website operator. Google will not associate your IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. 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 can also prevent the collection of the data relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) created by the Google cookie and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: The current link is https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=gb

 

8. Cookies

  1. General
    We use so-called cookies on different pages to make visiting our website more user-friendly and to enable certain functions to be used. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies that we use are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and allow us or our partner companies to identify your browser the next time you pay a visit (persistent cookies). We use cookies to personalise contents and adverts, and to analyse visits to our website. We also forward information regarding your use of our website to partners for social media, advertising, and analyses. Details are available at: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en.
  2. Consent
    By clicking the consent button on the home page, you consent to the use of cookies. You may revoke consent to the use of cookies, which are not essential for the operation of the site, at any time with future effect. Use the revoke button "Reject Cookies" for this. If you do not accept cookies, some functions on our website may be restricted.
  3. Control after consent
    In addition, you may control and/or delete cookies at your discretion if you have consented to their use. Discover how, e.g. at: AllAboutCookies.org. You can delete all the cookies stored on your computer and set most browsers to prevent the storage of cookies. However, you may then have to manually change some settings each time you visit a page, and you will have to accept that some features may be impaired. You should also refer to point d) below.
  4. Legal basis
    We use cookies on the legal basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f of the GDPR. As described under points a to c, we have legitimate interests in the use of cookies, and the use of cookies is necessary to achieve these interests (for example, legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both our website and our advertising). We have checked whether the interests of the visitors of our website outweigh our interest in the use of cookies, and after careful consideration have come to the conclusion that this is not the case.

 

9. Deletion

Personal data stored about you will be deleted if you revoke your consent to its storage, if your identity is no longer required for the purpose of such storage, or if the storage of your information is not permitted for other legal reasons. This applies unless statutory retentions periods prevent the deletion of data; in such cases, data would be blocked and not deleted.

 

10. Your rights

In particular, you can request information about the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipient to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of the right to complain, the source of your data, if not collected by us, and the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, where appropriate, meaningful information about the details of same.
If you have reason to believe that the personal data stored by us is inaccurate, you may of course request that it be corrected or supplemented.
You can also request that your data be deleted, unless processing is required for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, for fulfilling a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, or for the assertion, exercise, or defence of legal claims. We will act on any such requests without delay; however, we will of course be required to comply with any statutory retention provisions that may apply.
You can also request that the processing of your personal data be restricted if you dispute the accuracy of the data, the processing is unlawful, you reject its deletion and we no longer need the data while you, however, require the data to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims, or you have objected to its processing in accordance with Art. 21 of the GDPR.
If you have given consent to the use of data, you can revoke this with future effect at any time.
You also have a right to data portability. We will provide your data in a machine-readable format upon receipt of a corresponding request from you.
If your personal data is processed based on legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6, Par. 1 (1) letter f of the GDPR, you have the right to file an objection against the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 21 of the GDPR, provided that there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or that the objection is directed against direct promotional mail. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is honoured by us without the need to specify any particular situation.
Please address all information enquiries and requests, deletion requests, etc. or objections to data processing to our Data Protection Officer, using the contact details provided below.
If you do not agree to our processing of data, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with our responsible supervisory authority for data protection.

The supervisory authority for data protection with responsibility for us is:

   The State Commissioner for Data Protection and
   the Freedom of Information Baden-Württemberg
   PO box 10 29 32
   70025 Stuttgart

However, we would appreciate if you would consult with us beforehand in order to clarify any uncertainties or confusion together.

 

11. Links

If you use external links that are offered within the framework of our website, this Data Privacy Policy does not apply to these links.
We endeavour to ensure that any links that appear on our web pages also comply with our data protection and security standards. However, we have no influence over whether or not other providers are in compliance with the relevant data protection and security provisions. We would therefore kindly ask you to visit the websites of the other providers and read up on the privacy statements available there.

 

12. Disclosure of data to third parties or third countries

We will not pass your data on to third parties unless legally required to do so. Similarly, we will not pass your data to a non-member country, unless you reside in a non-member country or if the processing of contracts requires the disclosure of your data to a non-member country. The analysis tools specified in this Data Privacy Policy represent exceptions to this rule at best (see points 9 and 10).

 

13. Data security

We employ the latest technical measures to ensure data security, in particular, to protect your personal data when it is transmitted and to secure it against unauthorised access by third parties. These are continuously adapted in accordance with the current state of the art.

 

14. Changes to our data privacy provisions

We reserve the right to amend our security and data protection measures if this is required due to relevant technical developments or changes in the legal situation. In these cases, we will also amend our data protection information accordingly. For this reason, please refer to the latest version of our Data Privacy Policy.

 

15. Automated decision-making including profiling

Automated decision-making including profiling does not take place.
