Data Privacy Statement

Data Controller:
Kasper & Oswald GmbH
Mühlenweg 14 b
44809 Bochum
Germany

We collect, use and store your personal data exclusively according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In the following we will inform you about the type, scope and purpose of data collection and use.

Collection of general information

When you access our website, information of general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the name of a requested file, the date and time of the request, the amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent when you visit a website and stored temporarily on the hard drive of the website user and/or customer. If the corresponding server of our website is contacted again by the user of the website and/or the customer, the browser of the user sends the previously received cookie back to the server. The server can then evaluate the information obtained by this procedure in various ways. Cookies can be used, for example, to control the display of advertisements or facilitate navigation on a website. If the user of the website and/or customer wants to prevent the use of cookies, he can do this by locally changing his settings in the Internet browser used on his computer, i.e. the program for opening and displaying Internet pages (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Opera or Safari).

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

In order to present our contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.

Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Data collection and processing

Further personal data is only collected if the user of the website and/or customer provides information voluntarily, for example in the context of an inquiry or registration or for the conclusion of a contract or via the settings of his browser.

When placing an order in our webshop, the delivery and billing address provided by the customer, the e-mail address and order information are stored. These informations are used exclusively for the fulfilment of the sales contract, in particular to dispatch ordered goods and for invoicing. The e-mail address is used for correspondence regarding the order and will not be used for advertising purposes.

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

Provision of chargeable services

We will ask for additional data on the provision of chargeable services, e.g. payment details.

Usage and disclosure of personal data

As far as the user has made personal data available to our website, we use these only to answer inquiries of the user of the website and/or customers, for the completion of closed contracts and for technical administration. Personal data will only be passed on by us to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or for billing purposes, or if the user of the website and/or customer has given his prior consent. The user of the website and/or customer has the right to revoke a given consent with effect for the future at any time.

Data security

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods, e.g. HTTPS/TLS.

Data minimization

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as necessary through the various storage periods required by law. After the respective purpose or expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with statutory regulations.

Right to information

Upon written request, we will inform the user of the website and/or the customer once about the personal data stored. The right to correction and completion exists for incorrect or incomplete data. The respective inquiry is to be directed to the address given in the imprint of the website.

Right to deletion of stored data

There is a right to deletion of personal data stored by us. Stored personal data will be deleted if the user of the website and/or customer withdraws his consent to storage, if knowledge of such data is no longer required for the purpose intended by the storage or if their storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. Data for billing and accounting purposes are not affected by a request for deletion. For invoices and thus the invoice address and order information, a ten-year retention period applies in accordance with §257 (4) HGB (German Commercial Code).

Right to object to the processing of personal data

The affected person is entitled to object at any time to the processing of his or her personal data by Article 21 (1) of the GDPR. Processing may also be objected to regarding individual data.

Right to data transferability

For the purpose of data transferability, we make the stored data available in CSV format on written request, or forward it to a desired second data controller, if this is technically possible.

Right of appeal

Data subjects have the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority regarding the storage or processing of personal data.

Changes to our data privacy statement

We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data privacy statement so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data privacy statement, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data privacy statement will then apply for your next visit.
