4 Provision of the website and creation of log files
4.1 Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected and temporarily stored:
- Information, insofar as it is transmitted by the user's web browser in the headers.
- The IP address of the user.
- Date and time of access.
- The website accessed.
4.2 The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSG-VO. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in the data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
4.3 The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
5 Collection of personal data of the use
5.1 When using the website, so-called cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive in relation to the browser you are using and which provide the party setting the cookie (in this case, us) with certain information. Cookies cannot execute programmes or transmit viruses to your computer. They are only used to make the website more user-friendly and effective or to enable certain functions (e.g. shopping cart for orders).
- Transient cookies (temporary use)
- Persistent cookies (temporary use)
- Third-party cookies (from third-party providers)
- Flash cookies (permanent use)
b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the same session. This means that your computer can be recognised when you return to the website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
d) You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.
e) The Flash cookies used are not collected by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. These store the necessary data independently of the browser you are using and have no automatic expiry date. If you do not want Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or Adobe Flash Killer Cookie for Google Chrome.
5.4 The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
6 Use of functions on our website
6.1 In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you usually have to provide further personal data, which we use to provide the respective service. If additional voluntary information is possible, this is marked accordingly.
6.2 When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, your e-mail address and, if you provide this voluntarily, your name, telephone number and address will be stored by us in order to answer your questions.
6.3 The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
7 Contact form and e-mail contact
7.1 Our website contains a contact form which can be used for electronic contact. If a user makes use of this option, the data entered in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored. At the time the message is sent, the user's IP address and the date and time of registration are also stored.
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.
In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for processing your enquiry.
The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
7.2 The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of contacting us is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and lit. f DSGVO. If the purpose of the contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO.
7.3 The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation shall be deemed to have ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
7.4 The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
8 Orders via our website www.peaktech.de
8.1 You can register as a customer via our website for future orders. Alternatively, you can also order as a guest. When you place an order, we collect the following data in both cases:
- E-mail address
- Salutation, first and last name
- Your address
- If applicable, delivery address different from billing address
- Password, if applicable, if you register as a customer.
In addition, we store your shopping basket in a cookie. This cookie is deleted after completion of the order process or, if the order is not completed, when the browser is closed.
8.2 The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. We collect the aforementioned data in order to process your order, to be able to identify you as a customer, for invoicing, the processing of any liability claims, our correspondence with you and for the administration of our customer data.
8.3 The data will be deleted after successful processing of the order and expiry of the liability periods, at the latest, however, upon expiry of the retention periods under tax/commercial law. However, if you are a registered customer, your orders and all associated personal data will remain stored in your customer profile until you delete your customer profile.
8.4 In order to carry out the payment transaction you have selected, your personal data will be passed on to the credit institution or the respective payment service provider commissioned with the payment. The respective credit institution or payment service provider will be displayed to you when you select the payment method. The legal basis in this respect is also Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account with them. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this respect, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.
8.5 In order to carry out the shipping process, your personal data will be passed on to the shipping company.
9 Newsletter & Onsite Personalisation
9.1 On our website, you have the option of subscribing to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us. Only the e-mail address is mandatory. The first and last name as well as the form of address are voluntary. We use the e-mail address to inform you regularly about new products, valuable tips and exclusive or individual offers, voucher and gift campaigns.
In addition, the following data is collected during registration:
(1) IP address of the calling computer
(2) Date and time of registration
9.2 For the processing of the data, you will be sent an e-mail as part of the registration process. This contains a link which you must confirm in order to receive the newsletter. The link is valid for seven days. If you do not confirm your registration within this period, the registration will expire and your data collected during registration will be automatically deleted.
9.3 By registering for the newsletter, the user consents to the processing of the personal data provided by him/her. The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The user can revoke this consent for the future at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter (see below). The collection of the user's email address serves to deliver the newsletter. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user's e-mail address is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is not cancelled. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. Upon cancellation, the user's personal data will be deleted.
9.4 We have commissioned an external service provider to carry out the activities of our e-mail communication: rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße 21, 79106 Freiburg im Breisgau (www.rapidmail.de). This service provider processes data exclusively in accordance with our instructions, is also bound by this data protection notice and is controlled by us. Under no circumstances may the service provider use data that it has collected or processed on our behalf for its own purposes.
