3. Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use

a) When visiting the website:

Visiting our website is generally possible without providing personal data.

When you visit our website, however, the browser used on your terminal device automatically sends information to our website server. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:

  • IP address of the requested computer,
  • Date and time of the server request,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which the access is made (referrer URL),
  • Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.

The aforementioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
  • Ensuring a comfortable use of the website,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability,
  • Improvement of our offer.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data processing purposes listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

In addition, we use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website. For more detailed explanations, please refer to sections 5 and 10 of this privacy policy.

b) When registering for our newsletter

On our website you have the option to sign up for a newsletter. For the registration we need your e-mail address, as well as first and last name to be able to address you personally in the newsletter. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. after your registration we send you an e-mail in which we ask you to confirm that you agree to receive the newsletter and that you have also entered your mail address in the registration form yourself.

For the dispatch of our newsletters we use the service “Brevo”, a newsletter dispatch service of SendinBlue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin. Brevo is a European provider that we have selected in particular also from the point of view of DSGVO compliance of the newsletter dispatch.

Brevo makes it possible for us to analyze the user response to our newsletter mailings, e.g. by showing whether a newsletter message was opened and which links, if any, were clicked and how often. Brevo also allows us to subdivide newsletter recipients based on different categories and better tailor them to specific audiences.

The provider “Brevo” logs the registrations and double opt-in confirmations during newsletter registration to document the registration process. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. In addition, the provider already collects data via a cookie when our website is called up in order to ensure a technical functionality of the newsletter registration. The collected data is stored on Brevo’s servers in Germany. Brevo uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Brevo after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Likewise, changes to your data stored with Brevo are logged. If you do not confirm your registration within 2 weeks, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month.

The processing of your information entered in the form is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) exclusively for the purpose of sending the requested newsletter. The technically necessary processing of the information retrieved via the cookie is based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) to ensure a functional dispatch of our newsletter.

You can revoke your consent at any time for the future. To do so, use the “Unsubscribe” link provided in our newsletters or contact us directly, e.g. via the mail address datenschutz@edel.com. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

For more information about the provider, please see Brevo’s privacy policy at https://www.brevo.com/de/legal/privacypolicy/.

5. Cookies

We use cookies on our site. These are small text files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your end device (laptop. tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information is stored in the cookie that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we thereby obtain direct knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called “session cookies” to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after leaving our website.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness, which are stored on your terminal device for a certain specified period of time. If you visit our website again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

The data processed by cookies are necessary for the aforementioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO required.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website.

In addition to technically necessary cookies (essential cookies) that ensure the functionality of our website, we also use cookies on our website that enable us to track and analyze the usage behavior of our website visitors in order to optimize our online offering and display personalized advertising. These are partly also cookies that are set by third-party providers (third-party cookies).

You can view your selection of permitted cookies at any time under “Individual cookie settings” and revoke or change them with effect for the future.

Reference to data processing in the USA

By clicking the button “I accept all cookies”, you consent at the same time in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO that your data will be transferred to the USA and processed there. According to the European Court of Justice, the USA does not guarantee a level of data protection that meets European GDPR standards. In particular, compared to authorities in the EU, U.S. authorities have easier and more extensive access to personal data. There is thus a risk that your data collected in connection with your visit to our website may be processed by U.S. authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without any legal remedy.

6. Facebook Visitor-Pixel

With your consent, we use the “visitor action pixel” of Facebook Inc. within our website. With its help, we can track the actions of users after they have accessed our website or seen or clicked on a Facebook ad.

This allows us to measure the effectiveness of our website and Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous for us, which means that we do not see the personal data of individual users. We only receive statistical information via the Facebook pixel.

However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, about which we inform you according to our state of knowledge. In particular, Facebook may associate this data with your Facebook account and also use it for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s privacy policy https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Through the use of the Facebook pixel, the following data is sent to the Facebook:

  • HTTP header information (including IP address, web browser information, page location, document, web page URL and web browser user agent, and day and time of use),
  • Pixel-specific data; this includes the pixel ID and Facebook cookie data, including your Facebook ID (this data is used to link events to a specific Facebook ad account and associate them with a Facebook user),
  • additional information about the visit and about standard and custom data events.

By means of the hashed user-specific Facebook ID (contained in the Facebook cookie), Facebook automatically checks whether the data transmitted by the Facebook pixel can be assigned to a Facebook user. If no Facebook cookies are stored in your browser, no classification into a user group called “Custom Audience” is made.

You may allow Facebook, as well as its partners, to serve ads on and off Facebook. Furthermore, a cookie may be stored on your computer for these purposes.

This consent may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, please ask your parent or guardian for advice.
