3. Cookies

 

The SEM Boutique website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an internet browser. Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID. By using cookies, the SEM Boutique can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. Using a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to re-enter their access data every time they visit the website because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is a shopping cart cookie in an online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers.

4. Collection of general data and information

 

The SEM Boutique website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the server's log files. The

 

(1) browser types and versions used,

 

(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,

 

(3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer),

 

(4) the sub-web pages that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,

 

(5) the date and time of access to the website,

 

(6) an internet protocol address (IP address),

 

(7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and

 

(8) Other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. When using these general data and information, the SEM Boutique does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is needed to

 

(1) to correctly deliver the content of our website,

 

(2) to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it,

 

(3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well

 

(4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by the SEM Boutique on the one hand and furthermore with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

 

5. Subscription to our newsletter

 

On the SEM Boutique website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The input mask used for this shows which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when the newsletter is ordered. The SEM Boutique informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about company offers. Our company's newsletter can only be received by the data subject if

 

(1) the data subject has a valid email address and

 

(2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch.

 

For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a person concerned for the first time for sending the newsletter using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the email address, as the person concerned, has authorized receipt of the newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the person responsible for the processing. The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a relevant registration, as this could be the case in the case of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The data subject can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the person concerned has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. There is a corresponding link in every newsletter for the purpose of revoking consent. There is also the option of unsubscribing from the newsletter dispatch directly on the website of the person responsible for processing or to inform the person responsible for processing of this in another way.

 

6. Newsletter tracking

 

The SEM Boutique newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Using the embedded tracking pixel, the SEM Boutique can recognize whether and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were called up by the data subject. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing in order to optimize the sending of the newsletter and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the person concerned. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. The SEM Boutique automatically interprets a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

 

7. Contact options via the website

 

The website of the SEM Boutique contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address).

8. Comment function in the blog on the website

 

The SEM Boutique offers users the option of leaving individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog that is on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal, usually publicly available on a website, in which one or more people, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties. If a person concerned leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the person concerned, information on the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the person concerned are stored and published. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the person concerned is also logged. The IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he can exculpate himself in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defense of the person responsible for the processing.

The purpose of the cookie is to optimize and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to place and display user-relevant advertising and to create reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them.

28. Legal basis for processing

 

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR are based. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are particularly permitted to carry out such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

 

 

29. Legitimate interests in processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

 

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

 

30. Duration for which the personal data are stored

 

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the relevant data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for contract fulfillment or contract initiation.

 

31. Statutory or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

 

We explain to you that the provision of personal data is in part required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the person concerned. Before the person concerned provides personal data, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee explains to the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.

 

32. Existence of automated decision-making

 

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling. This data protection declaration was created by the data protection declaration generator of DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which acts as the external data protection officer Freising , in cooperation with the lawyer for data protection law Christian Solmecke.
