Provision of Personal Data to Third Parties in the Course of the Operational Processing of Your Purchases

Hosting Services

We are using the services of an external hosting provider in order to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, data storage, database services, security services, as well as technical maintenance, which is needed for the proper functioning of this online content. Therefore we process together with our hosting services provider usage data, as well as metadata of customers and visitors of this online content, based on our legitimate interest in an efficient and safe operation of this online content, as stipulated in Article 6(1) GDPR and only for the purposes of providing you with the best user experience.

Collection of Log files

We, respectively our hosting services provider, collect data about every access on the server where this online content is being hosted (so called server log files) based on our legitimate interest as defined in Article 6(1) GDPR and only for the purposes of investigating of abuse and/or fraud cases and providing you with the best user experience. The server log files save data such as the domain name of the website visited, files, date and time of the access, transferred data volume, browser type and operating system, referring URL, IP address and the originating provider of the request. Log files are being saved for security reasons (e.g. for the purposes of investigating of abuse and/or fraud cases) for a period of 2 years and are being deleted. Data that is necessary for the purposes of investigation or as a proof is exempt from deletion until the completion of each specific case.

Embedded Services of Third Parties

Based on our legitimate interest in providing content, analysis, optimization and a sustainable operation of our service, as defined in Article 6(1) GDPR, we use content and services provided by third parties by embedding their content, such as videos or fonts. Below, we call such content “third party content”.  In order to provide third party content, these external service providers collect the user’s IP address, because otherwise they wouldn’t be able to send their third party content to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore absolutely necessary for the display of the third party content.  We are doing our best to only use such third party content where the content providers use the IP address only for the content provision. Third parties may however also use so called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also called “web beacons”) for statistics and marketing purposes. These pixel tags enable the collection of information about the visitor traffic on our website.  The pseudonym information can further be saved in cookies on the user’s device and may contain technical information related to browser and operating system, referring websites, time spent on our website or the usage of our online content and this data may be connected with information from other sources.

Links to Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.
We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 ("Children").

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal

Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.
We will let you know via email and/or a prominent notice on our Service, prior to the change becoming effective and update the "effective date" at the top of this Privacy Policy.
You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
