What data is collected and how when you visit this website?

We only collect personal data that you wish to give us or that which we require to provide our services. When you visit our website, our Web servers store as standard details on your browser and operating system, the website from which you visit our website, the websites which you visit while you are on our website, the date of the visit as well as the Internet Protocol address (IP address) which was assigned to you by your Internet service provider for a period of seven days for security reasons. With the exception of the IP address, your personal data can only be stored if you have provided it to us of your own volition. For example, you may enter your e-mail address, your name, your postal address, your phone number, and, if necessary, additional data to receive information on our products, take part in competitions or surveys, purchase products or just to be up-to-date on products that are of interest to you.

When you access our website and enter information into the free text fields and post comments, for example, our systems store the Internet Protocol address (IP address). We require this information for security reasons to prevent misuse and other risks.

 

Security

MARABU CREATIVE COLOURS takes technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data that we manage from manipulation, loss, destruction and access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are optimised on an ongoing basis in line with technological developments.

Only authorised employees will have access to your personal data. This may also possibly include authorised employees of our service providers that process the data on behalf of MARABU CREATIVE COLOURS, or have access to it. In such cases, we have concluded a “data processing agreement” with the service provider.

 

Purpose of the data processing

We use your personal data for the technical administration of the website, for customer administration and management of the image database, to answer your questions as part of consumer service, for product enquiries and surveys, and for marketing purposes only to the extent necessary in each specific case. We only use your personal data for the purposes for which you provided it to us.

If you consented to us processing your personal data, this data will also be used for the purposes mentioned in the corresponding consent, e.g. to send you products. You may revoke your consent to this at any time with future effect.

Within the scope of individual use, we would like to make our advertising material and your visit to our websites as user-friendly and as individual as possible. In the process, any information that you automatically generate and transmit will help us to provide you with individualised, relevant information. This includes “technical data” (e.g. IP address, operating system, browser, date and time of the visit to our website) on our MARABU CREATIVE COLOURS website.

 

Transmission of your data to third parties and other countries

We will not provide your personal data to any other company which would like to use it for direct marketing measures, unless you have given your consent in this regard. Furthermore, we will provide your personal data to the following other entities in an extremely limited capacity:

  • our service providers so that they can assist us with managing our website or sending products and newsletters. We have contractually obligated these companies to take the same security measures that we do with regard to personal data to ensure that it remains confidential, and to process it only in accordance with our express instructions.
  • Personal data shall only be transmitted to government institutions and authorities within the scope of mandatory applicable legislation.

Your personal data can then be transmitted to other countries if one of our service providers has its registered office abroad. In this case, we have concluded a “data processing agreement” with the service provider that guarantees the same level of data protection and security as in Germany. This is guaranteed, among others, by contractually obliging the service provider to act only in accordance with our express instructions and take all technical measures to protect your personal data to the same extent as in Germany on an ongoing basis.

If personal data is processed in a country outside the EU and the EEA, we shall ensure that there is a suitable level of data protection by concluding a standard contract specified by the EU or an adequacy decision of the EU Commission for the respective country.

 

Legal bases

If the processing of your personal data is required to fulfil our legal obligations (e.g. storage of data), we shall be entitled to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (c) GDPR. Your personal data shall also be processed on the basis of voluntary declarations of consent provided by you.

We shall also process personal data for the purposes of guaranteeing our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1(f) GDPR. The maintenance of the functionality of our IT systems and the marketing of our products constitute examples of such interests.

 

Rights of the data subject

We have listed your rights in respect of your personal data as follows:

the right to information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to the processing as well as the right to data portability.

You shall also have the right to revoke any consent given to the processing of your personal data at any time with effect for the future.

If you wish to assert these rights, please contact our data protection officer using the contact information mentioned at the beginning of this policy.

Please note that you have the opportunity to revoke your consent in each of our newsletters, unsubscribe from this service and thus revoke your consent.

Unfortunately we cannot provide telephone information on your personal data as it is not possible to fully verify your identity with this mode of communication.

In addition, you shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.

Social media buttons

We use “Shariff” interfaces to share the content of our online offers via social networks such as Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Issuu (?) and WhatsApp. “Shariff” was developed by specialists at the computer magazine c’t to enable more privacy in the Internet and replace the customary “Share” buttons of the social networks.

Facebook

Our website contains social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of the external social network of Facebook Inc.,1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, (Facebook).

An overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance is available here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.

If you call up a page of our website which contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly to Facebook and integrated into the website. In this way, Facebook receives information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not possess a Facebook profile or are not even logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) will be transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, it can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plug-in; for example, press the “Like” button or leave a comment, this information will also be transmitted directly to a Facebook server and saved there. The information will also be published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
