For sending and analyzing the email correspondences (for example newsletter or customer information) we use the software "Eyepin". The newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to allow log-file recording and log-file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of our online marketing campaigns. The embedded pixel lets us know if and when an email was opened by a data subject. Furthermore, the newsletter tracking will also detect which links in the e-mail were accessed by the data subject. Such personal data collected by the tracking pixels will be stored and evaluated by us in order to optimize the newsletter distribution and to better adapt the content of our future newsletters to the interests of the data subjects. This personal data will not be disclosed to a third party. Subscribers will be able to unsubscribe from receiving newsletters any time by using the double opt-in procedure. After this, no further data will be collected and the address will be placed on a blacklist that documents the deregistration and prevents further submissions.

In addition, PayPal has the ability to process online payments through credit cards even if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, that’s why there is no classic bank account number. PayPal makes it possible to initiate online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also has a special fiduciary function and offers buyer protection services. The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.
If you select "PayPal" as a payment option during your order in our online shop, your personal data will be automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, you automatically agree to the transmission of your personal data required for payment processing. The personal information sent to PayPal are usually as follows: first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data required for payment processing. For processing the sales contract, such personal data will also be required that are necessary for the relevant order. The purpose of the transmission of your personal data is only for the payment transaction and fraud prevention. The person in charge of the transaction will transmit personal information to PayPal only if there’s a legitimate interest in the transmission of such data. The personal information exchanged between PayPal and the person responsible for the data processing may be transferred to credit reporting agencies by PayPal.

Your revocation has no effect on the personal information that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
16. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfill the contract you signed with us, as is the case, for example, in the processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other services or considerations, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out 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 your personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of the personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the person involved or any another individual person. This would be the case, for example, if a person visiting our company was injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the procedure would be based on Art. 6 I lit. (d) GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. (f) GDPR. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person involved prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this regard, the European legislator takes the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the company in charge (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
17. Legitimate interests in the processing
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. (f) GDPR, it is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
18. Duration of personal data retention
The duration of personal data retention is the period stipulated by law. The relevant data will be automatically deleted as soon as this period expires, if these data are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
19. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; the necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligations of the data subject providing personal data; the possible consequences of not providing personal data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as information of the contractor). Sometimes it is necessary for a contract conclusion that the data subject provides us personal data that will subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us personal information when our company enters into a contract with the data subject. Failure in providing the personal data would mean that the contract with the person could not be concluded. Prior to any data provision, the data subject has to contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or is necessary for the contract conclusion, and will also explain the consequences of not providing the required personal data.
20. Automated decision-making
As a company conscious of its responsibilities, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
21. Your rights (rights of the data subject)
a.) The right to obtain confirmation
b.) The right of information
If the data subject wishes to exercise this right to information, the person may contact an employee of the data controller any time.
c.) The right to rectification
d.) The right to erasure (the right to be forgotten)
If the personal data have been made public by Novum publishing and if our company is responsible for deleting personal data as per Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, Novum publishing takes appropriate measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs also. Novum publishing will also inform other data controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has asked for the erasure of all links to his personal data and this personal information or copies or replications need to be deleted unless required for the processing. The employee of Novum publishing will arrange the necessary steps in individual cases.
e.) The right to restrict processing
f.) The right to data portability
g.) The right to objection
h.) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
i.) The right to revoke data protection consent
