The following explanations give you an overview of how we ensure this protection and which data we process for which purpose.

1. Usage data

Every time our website is accessed and every time a file is retrieved, general data about this process is automatically stored in a log file. The storage serves exclusively system-related and statistical purposes (based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f.) DSGVO), as well as in exceptional cases for the reporting of criminal offences (based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter e) DSGVO). The data will not be passed on to third parties or evaluated in any other way, unless there is a legal obligation to do so (Art. 6 para. 1 letter e) DSGVO).

2. Personal data via the contact form, raffles, post comments and product reviews

Personal data will only be processed by us if we are permitted to do so by law, or if you have given us your consent. In detail:

a. Contact

If you contact us, we store your data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) b) DSGVO for the purpose of processing your request and in the event that further correspondence should take place. For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. For the use of the contact form, the following data is mandatory:

  • your first and last name,
  • a valid e-mail address,
  • your specific message.

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

  • to be able to identify you and
  • to be able to answer your question.

In addition, you can voluntarily provide your address for a postal contact. The personal data collected by us for the purpose of answering your inquiry will be automatically deleted after the inquiry you have made has been dealt with, if the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and there are no legal obligations to retain the data.

b. Raffles

We require personal data from you in order to participate, carry out and send out prize notifications and prizes. This includes for example

  • your first and last name,
  • your e-mail address,
  • if applicable, your address,
  • if applicable, your date of birth
  • if applicable, your telephone number.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) EU DSGVO, i.e. you provide us with the data on the basis of the contractual relationship (conditions of raffle) between you and us. For details on the contractual relationship, please refer to the respective conditions of participation. If we organize raffles on social media platforms (e.g. Instagram), we would like to ask you to also observe the data protection provisions of the respective platform. In some cases, we pass on your data to service providers

  • for the dispatch of raffle prizes and / or
  • for the processing of sweepstakes.

For some sweepstakes, it is therefore necessary to transfer your data to our cooperation partners, who support us in the implementation of sweepstakes, or to have it processed by them. We will inform you about our cooperation partners in the respective conditions of participation. If you do not wish your data to be transmitted for the purpose of prize draw processing, participation may not be possible. The legal basis for the transmission of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. In principle, your data will be deleted after completion of the competition. We store the winners’ data until the expiry of the legal or possible contractual warranty and guarantee rights.

c. Product rating function on the website

For the product rating function on this page, in addition to your comment, information on the time of the comment’s creation, your e-mail address and, if you do not post anonymously, the username you have chosen will be stored.

• IP address storage

Our rating function stores the IP addresses of users who write ratings. Since we do not check comments on our site before they are activated, we need this data to be able to take action against the author in the event of legal violations such as insults or propaganda.

• Comments storage period

The ratings and the associated data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. offensive comments).

• Legal basis

The storage of comments is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to marketing@mann-schroeder.de is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized. The collected data is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we can not draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook Data Use Policy. This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator. Furthermore, the website uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” to be able to address you again within 6 months. This allows users of the website to be shown interest-based advertisements (“Facebook ads”) when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use this procedure. We thereby pursue the interest of showing you advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you. The use of our website by you takes place without us being able to draw conclusions about you as a person. It is therefore completely anonymous. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding web page of our website, or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will learn and store your IP address and other identifying features.
