Last changed on January 10, 2024
 

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and are committed to ensuring that it is processed responsibly in accordance with the GDPR and other applicable data protection laws. In this data protection declaration, we describe how we implement this protection at Findeisen Uhren. We explain which data we process for which purposes or pass it on to other people.

In accordance with the GDPR, we understand "personal data" to mean all information relating to an identified or identifiable person. This is not just personal or private information, but also information such as your name, date of birth and your email address.

 

Who is responsible?

 

> The sole proprietorship of Findeisen Uhren, owner: Martin Zettl , Geiersberg 7, 90403 Nürnberg ("Findeisen Uhren", "we", "us") is responsible for the data processing in connection with this data protection declaration.

How do we collect your personal data?


> Automatic collection of personal data

 

When you visit one of our websites, we record the following information:

 

  • Your IP address;

  • the data accessed on the website;

  • the amount of data transferred;

  • the website from which the request came to our website;

  • the server response code to your browser's request;

  • Information about the browser you are using, including the version of the browser software;

  • Date, time and duration of your website visit and

  • other similar data and information that serve to avert the risk of an attack on our information technology systems.

 

As a rule, Findeisen Uhren cannot assign this data to a specific person (unless you contact us using the contact form or by e-mail with your full name). We do not merge this data with data from other sources.
 

A record of this information is required in order to

 

  • correctly transmit the content of our website;

  • to continuously optimize our website;

  • to permanently guarantee the functions of our IT systems and technology of our websites and

  • To provide law enforcement authorities with the information they need to prosecute in the event of a cyber attack.

 

Findeisen Uhren evaluates this data statistically in order to improve data protection and data security in our company so that the best possible protection is guaranteed for the processing of personal data. This represents our legitimate interest in the temporary storage of the data within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f) GDPR.

 

Personal data that is collected directly from you

 

> We collect and process information that you enter on our website or otherwise transmit to us. This includes data that you enter in forms or contact fields, or select from lists or menus.

> We also collect and process personal data when you send an email to Findeisen Uhren. This concerns the content of your e-mails as such, but also data from inquiries to our e-mail server, such as sender and recipient IDs, time stamps, or errors or reasons for rejection if the e-mail does not arrive. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

If you provide us with your personal data, we will ask for your consent to process this data. In this case, the legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by post, fax or email using the contact details given below.

 

external serviceprovider
 

> In principle, we will not pass on, sell or otherwise market personal data to third parties, such as other companies or organizations, without your express consent, unless this data is passed on to fulfill our contractual obligations between Findeisen Uhren and you, the user the website is required.

 

> Data transmission when concluding a contract for the purchase and dispatch of goods

Personal data will only be transmitted to third parties if there is a need to process the contract. Third parties can be payment service providers or logistics companies, for example. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to this.

The basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.


Transmission of data to countries outside the EU / EEA

 

> If there is a sufficient legal basis, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in other countries outside the EU / EEA where the laws and regulations for the processing of personal data are less strict. In such cases, we will ensure that there are adequate precautions to protect your personal data (i.e. EU standard data protection clauses that have been adopted by the EU Commission). For more details on these transfers and copies of these agreements, please contact us here.

Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. We use cookies, for example, to make it easier for you to navigate our website.

Most browsers are set to accept cookies. You can deactivate cookies in your browser at any time and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.

Web analysis cookies:

> Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). The deployment includes the application of Universal Analytics. This facilitates the assignment of data, sessions and interactions to a pseudonymous user ID across multiple devices and thus enables cross-device analysis of the activities of a user.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that enable website usage to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will shorten your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transferring it to the USA. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet usage. This justifies our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 Abs. 3 TMG and Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit.f) GDPR. The data transmitted by us and linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user IDs) or advertising identifiers are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has expired are automatically deleted once a month. Further information on the terms of use and data protection can be found at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html .

You can prevent the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) and its processing by Google by going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl+de&hl=de Download and install the available browser plug-in.

This feature visually represents geographical information and interactive maps. Google also collects, processes and uses data on visitors to the website when they call up pages with embedded Google maps.
Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. For the USA, no adequacy decision from the EU Commission is available. The data transfer takes place, among other things, on the basis of standard contractual clauses as suitable guarantees for the protection of personal data, which can be viewed at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks

The processing of your personal data is carried out with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

You also have the option of changing your settings in the data protection centre, allowing you to administer and protect the data processed by Google.

Use of Google Ads conversion tracking
Our website uses the online marketing program "Google Ads", including conversion tracking (evaluation of user actions). Google conversion tracking is a service operated by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; "Google").
If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. Every Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. It is therefore not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of Ads customers.
The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which could be used to personally identify users.
Your data may be transmitted to the USA. For the USA, no adequacy decision from the EU Commission is available.The data transfer takes place, among other things, on the basis of standard contractual clauses as suitable guarantees for the protection of personal data, which can be viewed at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks and https://business.safety.google/adscontrollerterms/.

The processing of your personal data is carried out with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal.

The data transfer takes place, among other things, on the basis of standard contractual clauses as suitable guarantees for the protection of personal data, which can be viewed at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks.

Our social media presence

Data processing through social networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The individual social networks we use can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Google+ etc. can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media presence triggers numerous data protection-related processing operations. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data can also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is recorded, for example, using cookies that are stored on your device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot retrace all processing processes on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. Details can be found in the terms of use and data protection provisions of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media appearances are intended to ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases that must be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Responsible and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we and the operator of the social media platform are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) against us as well as claim against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook).
Please note that, despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely based on the company policy of the respective provider.

Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage no longer applies, you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).
