4. General information on data processing 

Data protection, data security and data secrecy hold high priority for Hechler & Nickel Fashion GmbH (hereafter also termed Hechler & Nickel Fashion GmbH). The durable protection of your personal data, of your company data and of your business secrets is especially important for us.

You can always visit our website without making statements on your person. However, if you wish to make use of the services of our company, then this makes the stating of personal data necessary. As a rule we use the data that you communicate and that is collected by the website as well as the data stored in the course of the use solely for our own purposes, namely for the execution and making available of our website and the initiation, execution and progressing of the services/offers made available via the website (contract fulfilment) and do not pass this data on to external third parties in so far as there is not an official obligation to do this. In all other cases we obtain your special agreement. 

The processing of your personal data is carried out in conformity with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and in conformity with the country-specific data protection regulations holding good for Hechler & Nickel Fashion GmbH. With the aid of this data protection information we wish to inform you on the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data processed by ourselves. In addition, we clarify for you with the aid of this data protection information the rights to which you are entitled.

Hechler & Nickel Fashion GmbH has realized technical and organizational measures in order to ensure an appropriate level of protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, fundamentally Internet-based data transmissions can have security loopholes so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. 

5. Collecting of general data and information

The website of Hechler & Nickel Fashion GmbH collects a range of general data and information each time the website is called by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. Able to be collected are:(1) the 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-websites, which are steered to on our website via an accessing system, (5) the date and time of an 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, which serve the warding off of hazards in the case of attacks to our IT systems.

In using this general data and information Hechler & Nickel Fashion GmbH draws no conclusions about the data subject. Much more is this information needed (1) to be able to deliver out the content of our website correctly, (2) to permit the optimization of the content of our website and of the advertising for this, (3) to ensure the durable functionality of our IT systems and of the technology of our website and (4) to be able to make available to the law enforcement authorities the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the case of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is evaluated by Hechler & Nickel Fashion GmbH on the one hand statistically and on the other hand with the objective of increasing the data protection and the data security in our company in order finally to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by ourselves. The anonymous data of the server-logfiles are stored separately from all the personal data stated by a data subject.

General system data acc. to Sec. 5

Article 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR

(legitimate interest)

The temporary storing of the IP-address by the system is necessary to permit the delivery of the website to the computer of the user. For this the IP-address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of their collection. This is the case when the particular session has ended in situations where the data is collected for making the website available. 

This is the case at the latest seven days after the time when the data was stored in log files. More extensive storing is possible. In this case the IP-addresses of the users are deleted or distorted so that an assignment of the client calling in is no longer possible.

No because the data is essential for operating of the website

Passing on of this data to third parties does not take place in so far as there is no legal obligation to do this or in so far as the passing on serves a criminal or civil prosecution.

12. Use of analysis programs

12.1 Data protection regulations for the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

We have integrated on this website the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web-analysis service. Web-analysis is the collecting, compilation and evaluating of data concerning the behaviour of the visitors to websites. A web-analysis service collects - amongst other things - data on from which website (the so-called referrer) a data subject has come to a website, which subsites of the website were accessed or how often and for what period a subsite was watched. Web-analysis is used primarily for optimization of a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. 

The operating company of the Google-Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The party responsible for the processing uses the suffix „_gat._anonymizeIp“ for the web analysis via Google Analytics. With the aid of this suffix the IP-address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abbreviated and anonymized if the access to our website comes from a member state of the European Union or from another signatory of the agreement on the European Economic Area. 

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of the visitor flows to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained in order to - amongst other things - evaluate the use of our website, to prepare for us online reports which show the activities on our website and to provide further services linked with the use of our website. 

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. What cookies are has been explained above. The setting of cookies enables Google to analyze the use of our website. With each call of an individual page of this website, which is operated by the party responsible for the processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the IT-system of the data subject is automatically caused by the particular Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the framework of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data such as the IP-address of the data subject, which data enables Google to - amongst other things - trace the origin of the visitor and clicks and as a consequence to make possible the issuing of commission invoices. 

With the aid of cookies items of information related to personal data, e.g. the access time, the place from which an access started and the frequency of the visits to our website by the data subject, are stored. With each visit to our website this personal data including the IP-address of the Internet connection used by the data subject is transmitted to the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the U.S.A. In certain circumstances Google passes on this personal data as collected via the technical process to third parties. 

As has already been described above, the data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by making an appropriate setting on his/her Internet browser as used and thereby object to the setting of cookies in a durable manner. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie that has already been set by Google Analytics, can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or another software program. 

Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to collection of the data relating to use of this website generated by Google Analytics and to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such collection. For this the data subject must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and no information on the visiting of websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is evaluated by Google as an objection. If the IT system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or installed anew at a later point in time, then the data subject must carry out the installation of the browser add-on again in order to deactivate Google Analytics. In so far as the browser add-on is deinstalled or deactivated by the data subject or by another person, who can be considered to belong to the area of control of the data subject, then the browser add-on can be installed or activated again. 

Further information and the valid and applicable data protection regulations of Google can be called under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ as well as under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link: https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

12.2 Data protection regulations for the use and application of Google Remarketing

We use the Remarketing or "Similar Target Groups" feature of Google Inc. on our website. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). This feature is designed to help analyze visitor behavior and interests.

Google uses cookies to analyze website usage, which forms the basis for creating interest-related advertisements. The cookies are used to record visits to the website and anonymous data on the use of the website. There is no storage of personal data of visitors to the website. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google Display Network, you will see advertisements that are highly likely to include previously accessed product and information areas.

Your data may also be transferred to the USA. The European Commission has issued an adequacy decision for data transfers to the USA.

Processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO in the legitimate interest of targeting website visitors with targeted advertising by placing personalised, interest-related advertisements for visitors to the provider's website when they visit other websites in the Google Display Network.

For reasons arising from your particular situation, you have the right at any time to object to this processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO.

You can permanently deactivate the use of cookies by Google by following the following link and downloading and installing the plug-in provided there: 

https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=enAlternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third parties by visiting the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the additional information on opting out mentioned there.

Further information about Google Remarketing and Google's privacy policy can be found at the following link: http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

 

12.3 Data protection regulations on the insertion and use of Google AdWords and Conversion-Tracking

We have integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is a service for Internet advertising which permits the advertiser to place an advertisement not only in Google's search engine results but also in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords permits an advertiser to lay down in advance particular key words by means of which an advertisement will only be displayed in Google's search engine results when the user calls a key-word relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network the advertisements are distributed to thematically relevant websites with the aid of an automatic algorithm and subject to observation of the previously defined key words.

Operating company for the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is the advertising of our website through the overlaying of interest-relevant advertising on the website of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and an overlaying of third party advertising on our website. 

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the IT system of the data subject by Google. What cookies are has been already described above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and does not serve for the identification of the data subject. The conversion cookie - in so far as it has not expired - permits determination of whether a particular subsite, for example the shopping basket of an online shop system, was called on our website. With the aid of the conversion cookies not only ourselves but also Google can deduce whether a data subject, who reaches our website via an AdWords advertisement, generated turnover, i.e. completed a purchase or broke off. 

The data and information collected through the use of conversion cookies is used by Google in order to prepare visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by ourselves to determine the total number of visitors which are conveyed to us via AdWords advertisements, i.e. in order to determine the success or lack of success of the particular AdWords advertisement and in order to optimize our AdWords advertisements for the future. Neither our company nor other advertising customers of Google AdWords receive information from Google with the aid of which the data subject could be identified. 

With the aid of the conversion cookies personal data, for example the websites visited by the data subject, is stored. Accordingly, personal data including the IP-address of the Internet connection used by the data subject is transmitted to Google in the United States of America with each visit to our websites. This personal data is stored by Google in the U.S.A. Under certain circumstances Google passes on the personal data collected via the technical process to third parties. 

As has already been described above, the data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by making an appropriate setting in the Internet browser used and thereby object to the setting of cookies in a durable manner. Such a setting in the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie in the IT system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie that has already been set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or by a software program. 

Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to the interest-related advertising. For this the data subject must call from each of the Internet browsers he/she uses the link www.google.de/settings/ads and there carry out the desired settings.

Article 6 Para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) serves as the foundation for the processing of personal data in so far as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data.

Article 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal foundation for the processing of personal data which is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract if the data subject is party to this contract. This also holds good for processing processes which are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures. 

Article 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal foundation in so far as processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation.

Article 6 Para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal foundation for the situation that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary. 

Article 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal foundation for the situation that processing is necessary for ensuring a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not exceed the first named interest. 

15.2 General statements on deletion of data and duration of storing

The personal data of the data subject are deleted or disabled as soon as the purpose for which the data was stored lapses. In addition, storage can take place if this was stipulated by the European or national legislatures in orders, laws or other regulations in accordance with European Union law to which the controller is subject. Disabling or deletion of the data is also carried out if a storage period prescribed by the standards as named expires unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the concluding or fulfilling of a contract. 

16. Your rights

If your personal data is processed, then you are the data subject in the sense of the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights against the controller:

16.1 Right of access by the data subject 

You can demand from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data that relates to you has been processed by us.

If such processing has taken place, you can demand information on the following from the controller: 

(1)           The purposes for which the personal data is processed;

(3)           The recipients or, as the case may be, the categories of recipients to which the personal data relating to you has been disclosed or will be disclosed;

In this connection you can demand to be instructed on the suitable guarantees in accordance with Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission.

16.2 Right to rectification

You have a right to correction and/or complementing vis à vis the controller in so far as the personal data as processed and which relates to yourself is incorrect or incomplete. The controller has to carry out the correction without delay.

16.3 Right to restriction of the processing

Subject to the meeting of the following preconditions you can demand restriction of the processing of the personal data relating to you:

(1)  if you dispute the correctness of the personal data relating to yourself for a period which makes it possible for the controller to check the correctness of the personal data;

(2)  the processing is unlawful and you reject deletion of the personal data and instead demand restriction of the use of the personal data;

(3)  the controller no longer needs the personal data for purposes of the processing but you need the data for the advancing, exercising or defending of legal claims, or 

(4)  if you have advanced objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 Para. 1 GDPR but it has not yet been established whether the justified reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of the personal data relating to yourself has been restricted, then this data - apart from the storing of this - may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercising or defending of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons relating to an important public interest of the European Union or of a member state. 

If the restriction of the processing has been restricted in accordance with the afore-mentioned preconditions, then you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is removed. 

16.4 Right to erasure

16.4.1 Deletion obligation 

You can demand from controller that the personal data relating to yourself is deleted without delay and the controller is then obliged to delete this data without delay in so far as one of the following reasons applies:

(1)  The personal data relating to yourself is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or for which it was processed. 

(2)  You revoke your consent, on which processing in accordance with Article 6 Para. 1 lit. a or Article 9 Para.2 lit. a GDPR was based, and there is no other legal foundation for the processing. 

(3)  You submit an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 Para. 1 GDPR and there are no justified reasons for the processing with a higher priority, or you submit an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 Para. 2 GDPR.

(5)  The deletion of the personal data relating to you is required to fulfil a legal obligation in accordance with European Union law or the law of the member states, which laws the controller is subject to. 

(6)  The personal data relating to you was collected in relation to services offered by the information company in accordance with Article 8 Para. 1 GDPR.

16.4.2  Information to third parties

16.4.3  Exceptions

The right to deletion does not exist in so far as the processing is necessary for

(1)           the exercising of the right of free expression of opinion and to information;

(2)           for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, which requires the processing in accordance with the law of the European Union or the law of the member states, which laws the controller is subject to, or for the carrying out of a task, which lies in the public interest or which is carried out in the exercising of public authority, which authority was transferred to the controller;

(3)           for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Article 9 Para. 2 lit. h and i as well as Article 9 Para. 3 GDPR;

(4)           for archiving purposes, scientific or historical research purposes lying in the public interest or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 Para. 1 GDPR, in so far as the right named in section a) probably makes the reaching of the objectives of the processing impossible or impairs it seriously, or

(5)           for the advancing, exercising or defending of legal claims.

Moreover, the right to deletion does not exist in so far as the personal data has to be stored by the controller in order to fulfill legal duties to preserve records and legal retention periods. In such a case instead of deletion blockage of the personal data applies.

16.5 Right to information

If you have advanced the right to the correcting, deleting or restricting of the processing vis à vis the controller, then the latter is obliged to inform all recipients, to which the personal data relating to you was disclosed, of this correction or deletion of the data or of the restricting of the processing, unless this proves itself to be impossible or linked with unreasonable expenditure. 

You are entitled to the right vis à vis the controller to be informed about these recipients.

16.6 Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you, which you made available to the controller, in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data was made available, in so far as

(1)  the processing is based on a consent in accordance with Article 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Article 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Article 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR and

(2)  the processing is carried out with the aid of automated processes.

In exercising this right, you have in addition the right to bring about the situation that the personal data relating to you is transferred directly from one controller to another controller in so far as this is technically possible. The freedoms and rights of other persons may not be impaired thereby.

The right to data portability does not hold good for the processing of personal data, which is necessary for the carrying out of a task, which lies in the public interest or in the exercising of public authority and which task was transferred to the controller.

16.7 Right to object

For reasons which result from your particular situation you have the right to advance at any time objection to the processing of the personal data relating to you, which processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 Para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this right also holds good for profiling based on these provisions. 

The controller shall then no longer process the personal data relating to you, unless he/she can demonstrate compelling reasons worthy of protection, which reasons overweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or where the processing serves the advancing, exercising or defending of legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you is processed for the carrying out of direct advertising, then you have the right to advance at any time objection to the processing of the personal data relating to you for purposes of such advertising; this holds good too for profiling in so far as this is carried out in connection with such direct advertising.

If you object to the processing for purposes of direct advertising, then the personal data relating to you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the opportunity - in connection with the use of services of the information company and regardless of directive 2002/58/EC – to exercise your right of objection with the aid of automated processes in which technical specifications are used.

16.8 Right to withdraw from the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and without giving reasons. In the event of withdrawal we immediately will delete your personal data and no longer process it. The legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your given consent and carried out prior to your withdrawal is not affected by you withdrawal.

16.9 Automated decision-making in individual cases including profiling

You have the right to not subject yourself to a decision based solely on an automated processing process - including profiling - which unfolds a legal effect vis à vis yourself or which impairs you significantly in a similar way. This does not hold good if the decision 

(1)  is necessary for the concluding or fulfilment of a contract between you and the controller,

(2)  is permissible on the basis of legal regulations of the European Union or of its member states, which the controller is subject to, and these regulations contain reasonable measures for the maintenance of your rights and freedoms as well as for your legitimate interests or

(3)  is carried out with your explicit consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on particular categories of personal data in accordance with Article 9 Para. 1 GDPR, in so far as Article 9 Para. 2 lit. a or g does not hold good and reasonable measures have been taken for the protection of the rights and freedoms as well as of your legitimate interests.

In respect of the cases named in (1) and (3) above the controller shall take reasonable measures to ensure the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, whereby belonging thereto is at the least the right to the affecting of the intervention of a person on the side of the controller for the representation of the controller’s standpoint and to the challenging of the decision.

16.10 Right to complain at a supervisory authority 

Regardless of another regulatory or judicial remedy, you are entitled to the right to lodge a complaint at a supervisory authority and here in particular at a supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, of your place of work or of the place where the suspected infringement took place when you are of the opinion that the processing of the personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR. 

In this situation the supervisory authority, at which the complaint was lodged, shall inform the complainant on the status and the results of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy in accordance with Article 78 GDPR.
