1. Server log files

We automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Your operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data are not combined with other data sources.

The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

The system has to store the IP address temporarily in order to transmit the website to the computer of the user. This requires storing the IP address of the user until the end of the session.

The log files are stored in order to ensure the correct functioning of the website. We also use these data to optimise our website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. These data are not evaluated for marketing purposes.

The data are erased as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. In the event that the data are collected to provide the website, the data are erased once the relevant session ends.

Data saved in log files are erased after a maximum period of seven days. There is no further storage and the data are not combined with other data.

The collection of data for providing the website and the storage of data in log files is an unavoidable requirement for the operation of the website; the user is therefore not entitled to object to such data collection and storage.

2. General data collection

Our server automatically collects data of visitors to the website, as set out above under “server log files”.

We will only collect personal data if you send us an email to establish contact, to ask a question or to submit your job application. We will store data you enter (such as your name, email and phone number) and use it for the purpose of communicating with you individually. If you submit a job application, we will store your personal data only as long as is required for the application process. Please note that the data transfer is not encrypted and that you should therefore not submit confidential data via unencrypted email. We will store your email address until you demand its erasure or until a request by you has been completed. We will then erase your email address without delay. This is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Otherwise, we will use the data provided by you to carry out the contract. After the contract has been carried out, your data will be blocked from any further use and erased after the retention periods prescribed under tax and commercial law expire, unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or if we have reserved the right for a further (legally permissible) use of the data, about which we inform you below. This data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

Transfer of your personal data

Your data will be disclosed to third parties only in accordance with the data protection rules. Your data will not be disclosed for advertising purposes or other purposes.

Anonymized data are provided to municipalities for statistical purposes exclusively in accordance with the law.

In order to complete the contract, we will transfer your data to the shipping company tasked with the delivery, to the extent that this is required in order to deliver ordered goods. In order to settle payments, we will transfer the necessary payment data to the financial institution tasked with processing the payment and (if applicable) payment services providers commissioned by us or to the payment service you select during the ordering process.

In the event of requests which do not fall within the scope of our sales market, or if we are unable to deliver the requested product, we will forward the request to sister companies within the Binder Group. All our sister companies are based in the EU and are therefore also subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Your email address will be stored there until your request has been completed and erased thereafter, unless statutory retention obligations impose different requirements. Should a sister company be able to fulfil the request, it will notify you and it will be responsible for assisting you from then on. In this case, we will erase your email address without delay, unless statutory retention obligations impose different requirements.

Should we receive your email address in connection with the sale of goods or services, we reserve the right to email to you offers from our product range which are similar to those you have already purchased, unless you object to such communication. You may always object to such use of your email address via the contact option described above or via the appropriate link in the marketing email, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs in accordance with the basic tariffs.

Google will not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics with other data.
