In the following, we describe which data is processed during your stay on the company's website.

2. personal data

Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as IP address, your real name, address, telephone number and date of birth. Information that is not directly related to your real identity - such as favorite websites or number of users of a site - is not personal data.

3. processing of personal data

When you visit the company's website, we temporarily process and store data of various kinds. This includes the connection data of the requesting computer, the Internet pages that you select on our site as well as the date and duration of the visit. Furthermore, we determine the identification data of the Internet browser used and the type of operating system as well as the website from which you visit us. Personal data such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address are only collected if you provide this information voluntarily as part of a registration, contact request or a request for information.

4. purpose-bound use and passing on of personal data

The company uses the personal data provided by you for purposes of technical administration of the website, services, customer administration, product-related surveys and marketing only to the extent necessary in each case.

5. legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for processing your personal data depends on the purpose underlying the data processing.

- Technical administration of the website

The legal basis for processing personal data for the above-mentioned purpose is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO, insofar as a contractual relationship exists with you. If no contractual relationship exists between the company and you, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO. The transmission of personal data (e.g. the IP address) is necessary for the establishment of the connection and to display the contents of the website.

- Services

The legal basis for the processing of personal data for the above-mentioned purpose is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO. We provide our services within the scope of fulfilling contractual obligations. Without the processing of personal data, we cannot fulfill or perform the existing contract with you.

 - Google Analytics

The legal basis for the processing of personal data in the context of the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO. We need statistical information about the use of our online offer in order to make it more user-friendly, to measure reach and to conduct market research.

 6. passing on of data

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract or you have given your express consent. For example, it may be necessary for us to pass on your address and order data to your wholesale partner when you order products. Insofar as we commission external service providers, they are carefully selected and obliged to comply with all data protection regulations in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO.

7. use of cookies

Cookies are used on some of our Internet pages. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit our website. This allows us to make our website more individual for the user. The data that a cookie uses, such as an access password, is stored on your computer. If you do not want cookies to be used, please change the cookie management settings in your Internet browser.

To display the cookie notice, we use CookieConsent from Silktide Insites. This tool briefly checks the user's IP for geographic origin when loading in order to assign whether displaying the legal notice is relevant. In doing so, a cookie is set and a connection to the provider's server is established. The privacy policy of the provider Silktide can be found here:

8. newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter (double opt-in procedure). In order to personalize the newsletter, we store personal data, e.g. first name, last name and company. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and for documenting your consent. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time and with effect for the future, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. We use an external service provider to manage and send our newsletter. This service provider has, of course, been carefully selected and obliged to comply with all data protection regulations in accordance with Article 28 DSGVO.

9. Statistical evaluation

We need statistical information about the use of our online offer in order to make it more user-friendly, to measure reach and to conduct market research. For this purpose, we use the web analysis tools described in this section.

9.1 Google Analytics

Google Analytics is provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). This analytics software is configured in a privacy-compliant manner. In particular, we use Google Analytics with the additional function offered by Google to anonymize IP addresses. In this case, the IP address is usually already shortened by Google within the EU and only in exceptional cases in the USA and in any case only stored in shortened form.

You can object to the collection or analysis of your data by this tool by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

10. data security

Our employees and the service companies contracted by us are bound to secrecy and compliance with the provisions of applicable data protection laws. The company takes appropriate technical as well as organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, alteration, destruction and from access by unauthorized persons or unauthorized disclosure. Our security measures are constantly being improved in line with technological developments.

11. Duration of data storage

As a matter of principle, we store your data for as long as is necessary for the provision of our online offer and the associated services or for as long as we have a legitimate interest in continuing to store it (e.g. we may still have a legitimate interest in postal marketing even after a contract has been fulfilled). The deletion of the data takes place after the expiry of the legal or contractual retention periods (e.g. retention periods under tax and commercial law). Data that is not subject to the retention obligation will be deleted after the described purpose ceases to apply.

12. rights as a user

As a user of our website, you are entitled to various rights. Please use the information in the Contact section to assert your rights. Please make sure that we are able to clearly identify you.

13. rights to information, correction or deletion of data

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, you are entitled at any time, upon request and free of charge, to receive written information about what data is stored about you (e.g. name, address). Furthermore, you have the right to have this data corrected or deleted, provided that the legal requirements are met. Excluded from the right to deletion is, for example, stored data on business processes that are subject to the legal obligation to retain data.

14. right to restriction of data processing

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data.

15. right of objection

You also have the right to object to data processing by us at any time. We will then stop processing your data, unless we can prove - in accordance with the legal requirements - compelling reasons for further processing that are worthy of protection and which outweigh your rights.

16. right to data portability

Furthermore, upon request, we guarantee portability of the personal data transmitted by you by providing it in a common and machine-readable data format.

17. revocation of consent

You have the right to revoke your consent for the processing of your personal data at any time with effect for the future, which you have given us for one or more specific purposes. The lawfulness of the processing of your data until the revocation remains unaffected.

18. obligation to provide personal data

Insofar as a contract exists between Horst Platz Beratungs- & Vertriebs GmbH and you, you must provide those personal data that are necessary for the initiation, implementation and termination of the contractual relationship and for the fulfillment of the associated contractual obligations or which we are legally obligated to collect. Without the provision of this data, we will generally not be able to enter into, perform and terminate a contract with you.

As far as the data processing in the context of the use of this website is not required for the initiation, execution and termination of a contractual relationship or for the fulfillment of contractual obligations and is also not required by law, the provision of your data is voluntary. Please note that certain functionalities of the website or services cannot be used if you do not provide the necessary data.

19. Automatic processing of personal data

Any exclusively automatic processing of your personal data will only take place if it is necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract and if it does not have any legal or similar effect on you.

20. Complaints to supervisory authorities

In case of complaints regarding the processing of your personal data, you have the right to contact the competent supervisory authorities. To do so, you can contact the data protection authority responsible for your place of residence or federal state or the data protection authority responsible for us. This is:

The Hessian Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Gustav-Stresemann-Ring 1, 65189 Wiesbaden and can be reached by e-mail at: [email protected].

21 Contact

If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, or if you have any suggestions or complaints, you can contact our data protection officer. We recommend that you send confidential information by mail only.
