Privacy Policy

The person responsible for data processing is:

Gloria Haagmans

Rinderbachstr. 20

45219 Essen
kontakt@glowstaff.de

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about how we handle your data.

 

1. ACCESS DATA AND HOSTING

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time you access a website, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access.

This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to the site.

Hosting services by a third-party provider
As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides hosting and website presentation services for us. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the framework explained here.

This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

 

2. COLLECTION AND USE OF DATA FOR CONTRACT PROCESSING, CONTACTING US 

We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us in the context of your order or when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, as we need the data in these cases to process the contract or to process your contact and you cannot send the order or contact without providing it. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process the contract and your enquiries in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

If you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account. Further information on the processing of your data, in particular on the transfer to our service providers for the purpose of order, payment and shipping processing, can be found in the following sections of this data protection declaration. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described in this data protection declaration or via a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.

 

3. TRANSFER OF DATA

In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the ordering process, we pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to payment service providers commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account with them. In this case, you must register with the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this respect, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.

Data transfer for the purpose of age verification
If your order includes goods whose sale is subject to age restrictions, we use a reliable procedure involving a personal identity and age check to ensure that the customer has reached the required minimum age. For this purpose, the SCHUFA IdentitätsCheck is used on our website. This service is operated by SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden.
In order to ensure the required minimum age, individual personal data (e.g. name, address and date of birth) are transmitted to SCHUFA Holding AG in this context. A so-called identity check is then carried out with Q-Bit, which has been positively assessed by the Commission for the Protection of Minors in the Media (KJM) for age verification.
Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, the transmission of data serves to protect our legitimate interests in ensuring an offer that complies with the law on the protection of minors as well as the legal provisions on the protection of minors, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests.
A credit check is not carried out in this respect.

After complete processing of the contract and after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law, your data processed for this purpose will be deleted, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

Passing on data to debt collection companies
In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO, we pass on your data to a commissioned debt collection agency if our payment claim has not been settled despite a previous reminder. In this case, the debt is collected directly by the collection agency. Furthermore, the disclosure serves to protect our legitimate interests in an effective assertion or enforcement of our payment claim in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

 

4. E-MAIL NEWSLETTER

E-mail advertising with registration for the newsletter
If you register for our newsletter, we will use the data required for this purpose or separately provided by you in order to send you our e-mail newsletter on a regular basis based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Unsubscribing from the newsletter is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the newsletter. After unsubscribing, we will delete your email address from the list of recipients, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

E-mail advertising without subscribing to the newsletter and your right to object
If we receive your e-mail address in connection with the sale of a product or service and you have not objected to this, we reserve the right, on the basis of Section 7 (3) of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG), to regularly send you offers by e-mail for similar products to those you have already purchased from our range. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in addressing our customers in an advertising manner, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests.
You can object to this use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a link provided for this purpose in the advertising e-mail, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.

The newsletter is sent as part of processing on our behalf by a service provider to whom we pass on your e-mail address for this purpose.

This service provider is located in a country outside the European Union, for which the European Commission has determined an adequate level of data protection.

 

5. USE OF DATA FOR PAYMENT PROCESSING

Identity and credit checks when you choose Klarna payment services
If you choose Klarna’s payment services, we ask for your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO that we may transfer the data necessary for the processing of the payment and an identity and credit check to Klarna. In Germany, the credit agencies named in Klarna’s data protection declaration may be used for the identity and credit check.
Klarna uses the information received about the statistical probability of a payment default for a weighed decision about the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship.
You can revoke your consent at any time by sending a message to the contact details below. This may result in us no longer being able to offer you certain payment options. You can also revoke your consent to this use of personal data at any time by contacting Klarna.
