Privacy policy

Privacy statement

Thank you very much for your interest in our site. Data protection has a particularly high priority for www.knopfsammler.de. A use of the internet pages is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to www.knopfsammler.de . Through this privacy statement, our site seeks to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, this Privacy Policy will inform individuals about their rights.

Knopfsammler.de, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. 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, for example by post.

1. Definitions

The Privacy Policy of www.knopfsammler.de is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation Makers in the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. In order to guarantee this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms in this data protection declaration:

a) Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). A natural person shall be considered identifiable if he can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

c) Processing

Processing" means any operation or set of operations which is carried out with or without the aid of automated processes and which relates to personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or association, qualification, erasure or destruction.

d) Limitation of processing

Limitation of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movement of that natural person.

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or controller

The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or controllers may be designated in accordance with Union law or with the law of the Member States on the basis of specific criteria.

h) Processors under contract

Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) Recipient

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation task under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients.

j) Third parties

Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor.

k) Consent

Consent shall mean any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression by the data subject of his or her will in the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unequivocal confirmatory act, indicating that he or she consents to the processing of his or her personal data.

2. Name and address of the person responsible for processing the data

The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is the Data Protection Commissioner:

3. Acquisition of general data and information

The www.knopfsammler.de website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject 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-sites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be recorded, (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 used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information www.knopfsammler.de does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Instead, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information they need to prosecute a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by www.knopfsammler.de both statistically and 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 the person concerned.

4. Possibility of contact via the website

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

5 Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or where provided for by the European directive and regulation maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to require the controller to erase without delay personal data concerning him which are subject to one of the following conditions and to the extent that the processing is not necessary:

  • The personal data were collected for such purposes or processed in any other way for which they are no longer necessary.

  • The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR.

  • The personal data have been processed unlawfully.

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

If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a person concerned wishes to have personal data stored at www.knopfsammler.de deleted, he can contact www.knopfsammler.de at any time so that the request for deletion can be complied with immediately.
If the personal data have been made public by www.knopfsammler.de and if our company is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, www.knopfsammler.de will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data from these other persons responsible for data processing, insofar as the processing is not necessary, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs. The Knopfsammler.de will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

e) Right to limitation of processing

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to request the controller to limit the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time which allows the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.

  • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of personal data.

  • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

  • The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.

If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at www.knopfsammler.de, he or she can contact www.knopfsammler.de at any time. The Knopfsammler.de will arrange the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data transferability

Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to obtain personal data concerning him or her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine- readable format. It also has the right to communicate this data to another data controller without interference from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent referred to in art. 6 par. 1 letter a GDPR or art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract referred to in art. 6 par. 1 letter b GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority entrusted to the controller.
Furthermore, the person concerned has the right, when exercising his right to data transferability in accordance with Art. 20 para. 1 GDPR, to obtain that the personal data be transmitted directly by a responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible and insofar as the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected by this.
To assert the right to data transfer, the person concerned can contact www.knopfsammler.de at any time.

g) Right of appeal

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to object at any time, for reasons related to his/her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him/her under article 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In case of objection, Knopfsammler.de will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If www.knopfsammler.de processes personal data in order to conduct 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 as far as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes by www.knopfsammler.de, www.knopfsammler.de will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the person concerned has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him/her, which is carried out at www.knopfsammler.de for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, for reasons arising from his/her particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the person concerned may contact www.knopfsammler.de directly. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his or her right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding directive 2002/58/EG, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right under the European Directive and Regulation not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects upon him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national law or by the Member States to which the data controller is subject and which provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is taken with the express consent of the data subject.
Where the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is taken with the express consent of the data subject, www.knopfsammler.de shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to have the data controller intervene, to present his or her views and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her rights with regard to automated decisions, he or she may do so at any time by writing to www.knopfsammler.de .

i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his/her right to revoke his/her consent, he/she may do so at any time by writing to www.knopfsammler.de .

7. Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in 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 that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall apply to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order 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 site were injured and his name, age, health insurance information or other vital information would have to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be subject to Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

8. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

9. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted unless they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

10. Legal or contractual provisions relating to the provision of personal data; the need to conclude a contract; the obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; the possible consequences of not providing the personal data

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if www.knopfsammler.de concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. The data subject must contact www.knopfsammler.de before providing personal data. Knopfsammler.de informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.

11. Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible webpage, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
