The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message you agree to the processing of the transmitted data. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO with your consent.

You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

Collection, processing and transfer of personal data for orders

When you place an order, we collect and process your personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfill and process your order and to process your inquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide the data means that no contract can be concluded. The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you.

 

Your data will be passed on, for example, to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers you have chosen, payment service providers, service providers for order processing and IT service providers. In all cases we strictly observe the legal requirements. The extent of the data transfer is limited to a minimum.

Google uses cookies to perform the analysis of website usage, which forms the basis for the creation of interest-based advertisements. The cookies are used to record visits to the website and anonymous data on the use of the website. There is no storage of personal data of visitors to the website.

Use of Google Ads conversion tracking

We use the online advertising program "Google Ads" on our website and, in this context, conversion tracking (visitor action evaluation). Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our site and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you have clicked on the ad and been directed to that page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. As a result, there is no way that cookies can be tracked across the sites of ads customers.

The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics. This tells us the total number of users who have clicked on one of our ads and been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO from the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the impact and efficiency of this advertising.

You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO.

For this purpose, you can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate technical settings in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Furthermore, you can deactivate personalized advertising for you in the settings for advertising on Google. For instructions on how to do this, please visit https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=deDarüber.

Studio Amber - Data processing for bonus programmes
