3. Cookies

The AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is carried out by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, under certain circumstances not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of 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 that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the option of registering on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing results from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for their own purposes. The controller can arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use, which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also saved. This data is stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and if necessary, this data enables criminal offenses committed to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the data controller. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on is used for criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject with the voluntary provision of personal data serves the data controller to offer the data subject content or services that, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data base of the controller.

The data controller will provide each data subject with information on what personal data about the data subject are stored at any time on request. Furthermore, the person responsible for the processing corrects or deletes the personal data at the request or advice of the data subject, provided that there are no statutory retention requirements. A data protection officer named by name in this data protection declaration and all employees of the person responsible for processing are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing when you order the newsletter is determined from the input mask used for this purpose.

AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals in a newsletter about offers from the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered by the data subject for the first time for sending the newsletter in a double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the email address as the person concerned has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the controller.

The personal data collected when you register for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by email if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for a registration in this regard, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service is not passed on to third parties. The person concerned can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, there is a corresponding link in every newsletter. There is also the option to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or to inform the controller in another way.

7. Newsletter tracking

The AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH can recognize whether and when an email was opened by a data subject and which links in the email were called up by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimize the sending of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent relating to this, which is made using the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH automatically interprets it as a revocation.

8. Contact option via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such data voluntarily transmitted from a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

9. Comment function in the blog on the website

AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal, usually publicly accessible, on which a website, in which one or more people, who are called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject are saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. This IP address is saved for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties by posting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he could, if necessary, exculpate himself in the event of a violation. The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties unless such transfer is required by law or to serve as legal defense for the controller.

10. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

The comments made in the AZ-Delivery Vertriebs GmbH blog can in principle be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following a comment on a specific blog post.

The anonymization is implemented by replacing the last part of the IP address. The person responsible for the processing has made server-side settings based on which the IP address of the data subject is anonymized independently of each other before processing for geolocation and range measurement. On behalf of the controller, Adobe will use the data and information obtained through our website to evaluate the user behavior of the data subject. Adobe will also use the data to create reports on user activities on our behalf and to provide other services for our company that are related to the use of our website. Adobe does not combine the IP address of the data subject with other personal data.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Omniture from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, the cookies already set by Omniture can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by the Adobe cookie relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Adobe.

The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies on the data subject's system are deleted after an objection, the data subject must call the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

By setting the opt-out cookie, however, there is the possibility that the data controller's websites can no longer be used in full by the data subject.

29. Payment method: Data protection provisions on instant transfer as a payment method

The controller has integrated components of Sofortüberweisung on this website. Sofortüberweisung is a payment service that enables cashless payment of products and services on the Internet. Sofortüberweisung represents a technical process by which the online retailer immediately receives a payment confirmation. This enables a retailer to deliver goods, services or downloads to the customer immediately after placing the order.

The operator of Sofortüberweisung is SOFORT GmbH, Fußbergstraße 1, 82131 Gauting, Germany.

If the person concerned selects "Sofortüberweisung" as the payment option in our online shop during the ordering process, the data of the person concerned is automatically transmitted to Sofortüberweisung. By selecting this payment option, the data subject consents to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

When making a purchase via Sofortüberweisung, the buyer transmits the PIN and TAN to Sofort GmbH. Sofortüberweisung then carries out a transfer to the online retailer after a technical check of the account balance and access to further data to check the account funds. The online trader is then automatically informed of the execution of the financial transaction.

The personal data exchanged with Sofortüberweisung are first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data that are necessary for payment processing. The purpose of the transmission of the data is to process payments and prevent fraud. The data controller will also transfer other personal data to Sofortüberweisung if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. The personal data exchanged between Sofortüberweisung and the person responsible for processing may be transferred to credit reporting agencies by Sofortüberweisung. The purpose of this transmission is to verify identity and creditworthiness.

Sofortüberweisung may pass on the personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors, insofar as this is necessary to fulfill the contractual obligations or the data is to be processed in the order.

The data subject has the option to revoke their consent to the handling of personal data at any time compared to Sofortüberweisung. A revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

30. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

31. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

32. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the relevant data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.

33. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contract partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

34. Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
