We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of gadgoods GmbH. The gadgoods GmbH website can be used without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services of our company via our internet site, it may become necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to gadgoods GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about their rights.
gadgoods GmbH, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can, in principle, have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.
The data protection declaration of gadgoods GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European guidelines and ordinances when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

The website of gadgoods GmbH collects a number of general data and information with every visit to the website by a person concerned or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) 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 are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) guarantee the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by gadgoods GmbH on the one hand statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the DPA or Article 9(2)(a) of the DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.

If the personal data has been made public by gadgoods GmbH and our company as the responsible party is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 DS-GVO, gadgoods GmbH will take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to these personal data or copies or replications of these personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of gadgoods GmbH will make the necessary arrangements in individual cases.

The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to exercise or defend his rights.
The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by gadgoods GmbH, he/she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of gadgoods GmbH will arrange for the restriction of the processing.
- (f) Right to data portability
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him/her provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common, machine-readable format and to communicate such data to another controller without interference from the controller to whom the personal data has been provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DPA or Art. 9(2)(a) DPA or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transferability in accordance with Art. 20 Paragraph 1 of the DPA, the data subject has the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one person responsible to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact an employee of gadgoods GmbH at any time.

In the event of an objection, gadgoods GmbH no longer processes the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If gadgoods GmbH processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to gadgoods GmbH processing for the purposes of direct marketing, gadgoods GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out at gadgoods GmbH for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) of the DPA, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

The data subject is also free to exercise his right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.
- (h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, as granted by the European Union legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, except where the decision is (1) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) authorised by Union or national law to which the controller is subject and that law lays down adequate safeguards with respect to the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the explicit consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, gadgoods GmbH shall take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the data controller, to express his or her point of view and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact a member of staff of the controller.

The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook, a social network, on this website.
a social network is a social meeting place operated on the internet, an online community that generally enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. a social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences or enables the internet community to provide personal or company-related information. facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, U.S.A. The person responsible for processing personal data if a data subject lives outside the U.S.A. or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Each time one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be accessed at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical procedure, Facebook obtains knowledge of which specific subpage of our Internet site is visited by the data subject.
If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned by Facebook. If the person concerned presses one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.
Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to Facebook, he or she can prevent the transfer by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which can be accessed at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains the settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that allow data transfer to Facebook to be suppressed. Such applications can be used by the person concerned to suppress data transfer to Facebook.
- Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which 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 necessary for the supply of goods or the rendering of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, such as for the performance of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing could be carried out in accordance with Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO.
- legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or by a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
- Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period, after which the relevant data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.
- Legal or contractual provisions making the personal data available; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned provides us with personal data which subsequently have to be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned provides personal data, he/she must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or by contract
- Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
