We are pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Gora Klingen Manufaktur. The use of the Internet pages of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services provided by our enterprise via our website processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the European General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country specific data protection regulations applicable to the Gora Klingen Manufaktur. By means of this data protection declaration our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller the Gora Klingen Manufaktur has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur is based on the terms used by the European Data Protection Supervisor when adopting the Data Protection Regulation (Data Protection Regulation). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms among others in this data protection declaration:
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who 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 to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling shall mean any automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.
Pseudonymisation is 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 use of additional information provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The controller or person responsible for processing 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 determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed whether or not it is a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other 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 the processor.
Consent is any freely given specific and informed indication of his or her wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
The controller 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 subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
The website of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the 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-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an 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 that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Gora Klingen Manufaktur does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Gora Klingen Manufaktur analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data submitted by a data subject.
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller in the process results from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be transferred to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date as well as the time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify criminal offences that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the data controller. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the controller to offer the data subject content or services which due to the nature of the matter can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the controller's database.
The controller shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information on what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. All employees of the controller are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.
Based on statutory provisions the website of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise 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 controller by e-mail or by using a contact form the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. No disclosure of such personal data to third parties will take place.
The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires the personal data shall be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Every data subject has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain at any time from the controller, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. In addition, the European Directive and Regulation Body has granted the data subject access to the following information:
Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in relation to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to request the immediate rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data including by means of a supplementary declaration taking into account the purposes of the processing.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulation to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her where one of the following reasons applies and to the extent that processing is no longer necessary:
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to arrange for the erasure of personal data stored by the Gora Klingen Manufaktur he or she may contact any employee of the controller at any time. The employee of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur shall arrange for the erasure request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data was made public by the Gora Klingen Manufaktur and our company is responsible pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO the Gora Klingen Manufaktur shall implement reasonable measures including technical measures to compensate other data controllers for processing the personal data published taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation in order to inform the data subject that he or she has requested from those other data controllers to erase all links to the personal data or copies or replications of the personal data unless the processing is necessary. The employee of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the Gora Klingen Manufaktur, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur will arrange the restriction of the processing.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to receive the personal data concerning him or her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured commonly used and machine-readable format. The data subject shall also have the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR the data subject shall have the right to obtain the direct transfer of personal data from one controller to another controller where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data portability the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to object at any time on grounds relating to his or her particular situation to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The Gora Klingen Manufaktur shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the Gora Klingen Manufaktur processes personal data for direct marketing purposes the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Gora Klingen Manufaktur to the processing for direct marketing purposes the Gora Klingen Manufaktur will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition the data subject has the right on grounds relating to his or her particular situation to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the Gora Klingen Manufaktur for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object the data subject may directly contact any employee of the Gora Klingen Manufaktur or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulation not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing including profiling which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into or the performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that such law lays down appropriate measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests or (3) is made with the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into or the performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) it is made with the data subject's explicit consent the Gora Klingen Manufaktur shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests which include at least the right to obtain the data subject's involvement on the part of the controller to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions he or she may contact any employee of the controller at any time.
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling an application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is in particular the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant the application documents are automatically deleted two months after the notification of the rejection decision provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. For example other legitimate interest in this sense is a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
The controller has integrated components of PayPal on this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts which represent virtual private or business accounts. In addition PayPal offers the possibility of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to initiate online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also assumes trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.
The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal L-2449, Luxembourg.
If the data subject selects "PayPal" as a payment option during the ordering process in our online shop data of the data subject will be automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option the data subject consents to the transmission of personal data required for payment processing.
The personal data transmitted to PayPal are usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for the processing of the payment. Personal data that is necessary for the processing of the purchase contract is also personal data that is related to the respective order.
The purpose of transmitting the data is payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transmit personal data to PayPal in particular if there is a legitimate interest for the transmission. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller may be transferred by PayPal to credit reference agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness.
PayPal may disclose the personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations or the data is to be processed on behalf.
The data subject has the option to revoke the consent to the handling of personal data at any time vis-à-vis PayPal. A revocation does not affect personal data that must necessarily be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
The applicable data protection provisions of PayPal can be found at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company 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 another service or consideration the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases the processing of personal data might 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 were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. 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 protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party provided that the interests fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were 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 controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of the welfare of all our employees and our shareholders.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes in order to conclude a contract it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or by contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
As a responsible company we do not use automated decision making or profiling.
