Data Protection

The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union, and other provisions of a data protection nature is Sebastian Jacobitz, Galenstrasse 45, 13597 Berlin (hereinafter “responsible person” or “we” or “us”).

General information on data processing

1) Personal data

Personal data are individual details about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as name, address, telephone number, email address, and the IP address that can be assigned to a connection. Information that cannot be directly linked to a person’s identity – such as favorite websites or the number of users of a page – is not considered personal data.

2) Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we only collect and use the personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users take place regularly only with the user’s consent. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons, and the data processing is permitted by law.

If you would like to purchase one of the goods presented by us by clicking on the forwarding to the seller of the goods in question, we will not find out. By clicking on the forwarding to the respective seller of the goods, we only receive a sales commission, which is independent of personal data. Therefore, we cannot see which visitor is buying goods and which goods a visitor is buying. It is only transmitted to us which goods have been bought and how often, without it being possible to draw any conclusions about the buyer’s identity. The identity of the respective buyer is only known to the respective seller of the goods, who is not identical to us.

3) Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When processing personal data required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are required to carry out pre-contractual measures.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

4) data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if the European or national legislator has provided for this in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions to which we are subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
