If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps.

What is personal data and what is it used for?
Personal data is information that can be used to determine identity. This includes information such as your real name, address, postal address, email address and telephone number. Information that is not directly associated with the real identity (such as favorite websites or the number of users of a site) is not included.
In principle, you can use our online offer without disclosing your identity (e.g. to find out about products available from us).
However, if you want to place an order, you must provide your address. You must also use one of the available means of payment. When using a means of payment, your personal data will also be collected depending on the means of payment, but the protection of this data is the responsibility of the respective payment means provider, who does not pass this data on to us.
Alternatively, you can also reserve all products in the KBC shop by telephone or e-mail and pay cash in person in our shop in Düsseldorf and pick them up in person.
If you use the bank transfer payment method, personal data will be revealed, which, however, is not related to the website www.KBC-Shop.com, but is only available offline. This data is kept and stored within the framework of the principles of proper bookkeeping (GOB) and is not used for any purpose other than the legally prescribed documentation of business transactions.
We use the personal data for the purposes of technical administration of the website and for customer management only to the extent required in each case. In addition, personal data is only stored if this is given voluntarily. For example, when ordering, you can choose whether we can inform you about products and news via newsletter.

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent that you have already given at any time. An informal message by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise we will refuse the registration. In the event of important changes, for example for technical reasons, we will inform you by e-mail. The e-mail will be sent to the address given during registration. The data entered during registration is processed on the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent that you have already given at any time. An informal message by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing that has already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation. We store the data collected during registration during the period in which you are registered on our website. Your data will be deleted if you cancel your registration. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter . Further data is not collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

Mailchimp: The newsletter is sent using "MailChimp", a newsletter distribution platform from the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
Registration data: In order to register for the newsletter, it is sufficient if you enter your e-mail address. (Optionally, we ask you to provide your first and last name. This information is only used to personalize the newsletter. We also ask you to optionally provide your date of birth. We only use this information to adapt the content of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.) Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor that of MailChimp to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Cancellation/revocation: You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
Legal bases of the General Data Protection Regulation: In accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applicable from May 25, 2018, we inform you that the consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a, 7 GDPR and Article 7 Para. 2 No. 3, or Para. 3 UWG. The use of the mail service provider MailChimp, the implementation of statistical surveys and analyzes and the logging of the registration process are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Our interest is focused on the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and meets user expectations.

Your data is transmitted to PayPal on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR (consent) and Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR (processing to fulfill a contract). You can revoke your consent that you have already given at any time. Data processing operations in the past remain effective in the event of revocation.

Google Tag Manager
We use the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that we, as marketers, use to manage website tags from one interface. The Tag Manager tool implements the tags. It is a cookieless domain and does not collect any personal data. It triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, this will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
Specific to Google Analytics
Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "cookies." These are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device and enable analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the USA.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and, if necessary, advertising.
We use Google Analytics in connection with the IP anonymization function. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, this could limit some functions of our website. You can also prevent the collection of data relating to your website use, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to our website: Disable Google Analytics.
In order to fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing contract with Google.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
Our website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. This is possible via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the point "Objection to data collection".
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
Our website uses Google AdWords. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program, we work with conversion tracking. After clicking on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device. Google AdWords cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. We and Google can use the cookie to recognize that you clicked on an ad and were forwarded to our website.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies are not traceable across AdWords advertiser websites. Conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers find out how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with a conversion tracking tag. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that would allow users to be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to its use. Here the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. This means that there is no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics.
"Conversion cookies" are stored on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As the website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and our advertising. Details on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in Google's data protection regulations: www.google.de/policies/privacy/ .
With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. The deactivation of cookies can result in limited functionality of our website.
