Proprietor: Dipl.-Inf. Sebastian Sonntag
In the event that you wish to object to the collection, processing or use of your data by SEBSON pursuant to these data protection provisions altogether or for individual measures, you can send your objection by email, fax or letter to the above-mentioned contact.
2. Collection, use and processing of personal data
The use of our website is, as a rule, possible without providing any personal data.
Where personal data (for instance name, address or email addresses) are collected on our sites, this is, where possible, always performed on a voluntary basis. We do not transfer your personal data including your home address and email address to third parties without your express and revocable consent. Excluded are our service partners who require the transfer of data for the order handling (e.g. the shipping company in charge of the delivery and the credit institution responsible for the payment handling). In these cases, however, the scope of the data transferred is limited to the required minimum.
We exclusively use your order data for the handling of your order. Your data are rarely used for a promotional approach, which you may revoke anytime. You have anytime the right to free-of-charge enquiry, reporting, blockage and deletion of your saved data. Please send us an email concerning this issue or send us your request by mail or fax.
For payments via PayPal, credit card via PayPal, direct debiting via PayPal or – if offered - "purchase on account" or „instalments“ via PayPal, we transfer your payment data to the extent of the payment handling to PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter "PayPal"). The transfer is made according to art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and only to the extent necessary for the payment handling. PayPal reserves the performance of a credit check for the methods of payment credit card via PayPal, direct debiting via PayPal or - if offered - “purchase on account” or “instalments” via PayPal. To this purpose, your payment data are, if applicable, transferred to credit agencies according to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of PayPal’s legitimate interest to determine your solvency. PayPal will use the result from the credit check with regard to the statistical payment default probability to the purpose of making a decision on the provision of the respective method of payment. The credit check may contain probability values (so-called score values). Where score values are integrated in the result of the credit check, they are based upon mathematic and statistical processes that are scientifically recognised. The calculation of the score values includes, but is not restricted to address data.
You may object to the processing of your data anytime by sending a message to PayPal. PayPal, however, continues to be entitled, if applicable, to process your personal data to the extent necessary for the payment handling according to contract.
Internet sites in some instances use so-called cookies. Cookies do not do any damage on your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our offer more user-friendly, effective and safe. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
In this shop, information on the contents of your shopping cart are saved in the cookies, information that you can access during your next visits. If you log in with us or wish to make an order, we require your customer data. If you are already a customer of ours, you can quite easily log in via your email address and your personal password. The data filed in a cookie save you the effort of completing forms.
You can manage the acceptance of cookies from this site in your browser program and block these cookies, if applicable.
4. Server log files
The provider of the sites automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transfers to us. This information includes the following:
- Browser type and browser version
- The operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data are not assignable to specific persons. These data will not be regrouped with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently verify these data if we become aware of concrete indications of your unlawful use.
5. Product evaluations and comment function
If you evaluate our products in the shop or comment on blog articles, the previously selected user name is also saved apart from the information given by you via the input mask. This serves the security of SEBSON since the provider may be prosecuted for unlawful contents on its website even if these contents come to the site by evaluations/comments made by third parties. We will not transfer these data without your consent.
6. Contact form
If you submit enquiries to us via the contact form, your information from the enquiry form including the contact data given by you is saved by us for processing the enquiry and for the event of follow-up questions. We do not transfer these data without your consent.
7. Newsletter data
If you wish to register for the newsletter offered on our website, we need an email address from you as well as information allowing us to verify that you are the holder of the email address indicated and that you consented to receiving the newsletter. We do not collect any further data. We exclusively use these data for the dispatch of the information requested and do not transfer these data to third parties.
You may anytime revoke the consent given to save the data, the email address as well as their use for the dispatch of the newsletter, for instance via the “Deregister” link in the newsletter.
8. Integration of the Trusted Shop Trustbadge
The Trusted Shops Trustbadge is integrated on this website to display our Trusted Shops seal of approval and the possibly collected evaluations as well as to offer the Trusted Shops products to buyers after an order.
This serves the protection of our legitimate interests in an optimal marketing by enabling a safe purchase in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offer of the Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne. The trust badge is provided by a CDN provider (Content-Delivery-Network) as part of order processing. The Trusted Shops GmbH uses also Dienstleister from the USA. An appropriate level of data protection is ensured. Further information to the data security of the Trusted Shops GmbH finds you here: https://www.trustedshops.de/impressum/#datenschutz
When the trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. Individual access data are stored in a security database for the analysis of security problems. The log files are automatically deleted 90 days after creation at the latest.
Further personal data is transferred to Trusted Shops GmbH if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or if you have already registered for use. The contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies. For this an automatic collection of personal data takes place from the order data. Whether you as a buyer are already registered for a product use is automatically checked on the basis of a neutral parameter, the e-mail address hashed by cryptological one-way function. The e-mail address is converted into this hash value, which cannot be decoded for Trusted Shops, before transmission. After checking for a match, the parameter is automatically deleted.
This is necessary for the fulfilment of our and Trusted Shops' predominantly legitimate interests in the provision of the buyer protection linked to the specific order and the transactional valuation services in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Further details, including objections, can be found in the Trusted Shops data protection declaration linked above and in the Trustbadge.
9. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files saved on your computer facilitating an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transferred to and saved by a server by Google in the USA.
Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activities for the website owners and in order to provide other services in connection with the use of the website and the use of the Internet. Google will also transfer this information to third parties, if applicable, to the extent legally provided or where third parties process these data on behalf of Google.
Google will in no case connect your IP address to other data saved by Google. You can prevent the cookies from being installed by an appropriate setting of your browser software; we point out, however, that in this case, you might not be able to use all functions of this website to the full extent. You may moreover prevent the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website from being recorded by Google as well as these data from being processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
You may prevent your data from being recorded by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. An opt-out cookie is filed that prevents your data from being recorded during future visits to the website:deactivate Google Analytics
10. Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. The function serves the purpose of presenting visitors to the website with interest-related ads within the Google advertising network. A so-called “cookie” is saved in the browser of the visitor to the website that facilitates the recognition of the visitor when he or she accesses these websites belonging to Google’s advertising network. The visitor may be shown ads on these sites that relate to contents that the visitor previously accessed on websites using Google’s remarketing function.
11. Google AdWords
Our website uses the Google Conversion Tracking. If you gained access to our website via an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set on your computer by Google Adworks. The cookie for conversion tracking is set if a user clicks an ad placed by Google. These cookies will lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve the purpose of personal identification. If the user accesses certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google are able to recognise that the user clicked the ad and was forwarded to this site. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can thus not be kept track of via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained by means of the conversion cookies serves the purpose of preparing conversion statistics for AdWords customers who decided for conversion tracking. The customers will learn of the total number of users who clicked their ad and were forwarded to a site with a conversion tracking tag. They do however not contain any information by which users may be personally identified.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you may refuse the required setting of a cookie - for instance by setting your browser so that the automatic placing of cookies is generally deactivated, or change the settings of your browser so that cookies from the domain „googleleadservices.com“ are blocked.
Please note that you cannot delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measuring data to be recorded. If all your cookies in the browser are deleted, you must again set the relevant opt-out cookie.
12. Social networks
12.1. Use of Facebook plugins
Our internet sites use plugins by the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
When you access our Internet sites, a connection is made between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thus obtains the information that you visited our site with your IP address. If you are logged in as a member with Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking the “like” buttons, posting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account. We note that we as a provider are not aware of the contents of the data transferred nor their use by Facebook.
You’ll find detailed information on the collection and use of the data by Facebook, on your rights to this effect and possibilities to protect your privacy in Facebook’s privacy notices at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php (prepared by Annegret Mayer, attorney, LL.M., version: 02 February 2011) © Händlerbund e.V.
If you do not wish that Facebook is able to assign the visit to our sites to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
12.2. Use of the Google „+1“ button
On these Internet sites, the “+1” button by the social network Google Plus of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA, (hereinafter „Google“) is used.
When you access an Internet site of our web presence with the “+1” button, a connection to the Google servers in the USA is made and the button is shown by communication to your browser on the Internet site. Thus your IP address as well as the information which of our Internet sites you visited are transferred to the Google server. This applies regardless of the fact if you are registered or logged into Google Plus. The transfer is also made for users that are not registered or not logged in. The “1+” button is not used to record your visits to the Internet. Google does not permanently keep record of your browser history when showing a “+1” button nor does Google evaluate your visit to a site with a “+1” button in any other way. Google does save data on your visit for the purpose of system maintenance and troubleshooting for approximately two weeks. These data, however, are not structured by individual profiles, user names or URLs nor are they forwarded to us. If you are moreover a member of Google Plus and logged into Google Plus at the time you are using the plugin, the information collected on your website visit is linked to your Google Plus account and communicated to other users. Even in case of interactions that are possible with the different Google plugins, the relevant information on you is collected and transferred to Google and saved. You can find an overview on the different types of Google plugins: https://developers.google.com/+/plugins. If you made your profile available to the public in the Google Plus settings, your “+1” may be shown by Google as a reference along with your profile name and your photo in Google services such as in search results or in your Google profile or in other places on websites and ads on the Internet. If you do not wish for Google to assign the information collected directly to your Google Plus profile, you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our site.
You’ll find detailed information on the collection and use of data by Google, on your rights to this effect and possibilities to protect your privacy in Google’s privacy notes: www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html. You also have the possibility to prevent the loading of Google plugins by installing add-ons in your browser.
13. SSL encryption
We apply technical and organizational security measures to protect your data managed by us against random or wilful manipulation, loss, destruction or against the access by unauthorised persons. Payment data are communicated in encrypted form (128-Bit SSL).
14. Right of information, deletion, blockage
You have the right of free-of-charge information on your personal data saved, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as a right of correction, blockage or deletion of these data anytime. Please do not hesitate to contact us anytime on this as well as on other questions on the issue of personal data at the above-mentioned address.
