Data protection officer:
Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for collecting data on this website?
The website operator processes data on this website. The operator’s contact details can be found in the legal notice on this website.
How do we collect your data?
Some data is collected when you submit it to us. This could be data which you enter in a contact form, for example.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This primarily relates to technical data (e.g. Web browser, operating system or the time the page was accessed). This data is collected automatically as soon as you access our website.
What do we use your data for?
Some data is collected to ensure that the website works correctly. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What rights do you have in relation to your data?
You have the right to receive information, free of charge, at any time about the origins, recipient and purpose of the personal data stored about you. You also have the right to request that this data is rectified, blocked or erased. You can contact us at any time using the address provided in the legal notice to do this or to ask any questions you may have about data protection. Furthermore, you have the right to complain to the relevant supervisory body.
Analytics and third-party tools
Please be aware that security loopholes can occur when data is transmitted online (e.g. communicating by email). It is impossible to completely protect data from third-party access.
Information about the data controller
The data controller responsible for this website is:
Albrecht & Dill Cosmetics
Tel.: +49 (0)40 800 9101
The data controller is the individual or legal entity who decides either solely or jointly with others on the means by which personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.) is processed and the purposes of this processing.
Withdrawing your consent to data processing
Many data processing activities can only be conducted with your explicit consent. Once you have given your consent, you can withdraw it at any time. All you need to do is send us an email. If you withdraw your consent, the legality of any data processing performed prior to this revocation remains unaffected.
Right to complain to the relevant supervisory body
If infringements of data protection legislation occur, the party affected has the right to complain to the relevant supervisory body. The supervisory body responsible for data protection issues is the data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection commissioners and their contact details can be found by clicking on this link: www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to request that a record of the data which we process automatically based on your consent or to fulfil a contract is supplied to you or a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you ask for the data to be transmitted directly to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically viable.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL and/or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries which you send to us as the website operator. You can tell when a connection is encrypted because the address line in the browser changes from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and the lock symbol appears in your browser bar. If SSL and/or TLS encryption is activated, third parties cannot read the data you transmit to us.
Information, blocking, erasure
The applicable legislation gives you the right to request information at any time, free of charge, about the personal data kept on record about you, its origins and recipient, and the purpose for which the data is processed. If applicable, you are also entitled to have this data rectified, blocked or erased. You can contact us at any time using the address provided in the legal notice to do this or to ask any questions you may have about personal data.
Opting out of promotional emails
Please note that the contact details published as part of the obligatory legal notice may not be used to send advertising or information material which has not been explicitly requested. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action should they receive unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails.
You can set up your browser to inform you when cookies are set and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies in specific cases or always reject them. You can also choose for cookies to be deleted automatically when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information comprises the:
This data is not combined with data from other sources. Data of this kind is collected on the basis of section 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in its website being displayed without technical errors and in optimising its online offering. Server log files need to be collected for these purposes.
When you send enquiries to us using the contact form, your details from the query – including the contact details you submit with it – are stored by us for the purpose of handling the enquiry and any subsequent questions. We do not forward this data without your consent. Data entered in the contact form is therefore processed solely on the basis of your consent (section 6[a] GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an email. If you withdraw your consent, the legality of any data processing operations performed prior to this revocation remains unaffected.
The data which you entered in the contact form is retained by us until you request its erasure, revoke your consent to its storage, or the data no longer needs to be stored for the original purpose (e.g. once your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory legal requirements – especially storage periods – remain unaffected.
If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any contact information provided there in will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR) or on your agreement (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.
The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of section 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimise their online offering and their advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the whole IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to analyse your usage of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services associated with use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted to Google Analytics by your browser is not combined with other data held by Google.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the corresponding settings in your browser software. However, please note that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full if you do so. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie about your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) from being submitted to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Data processing contracts
We have concluded a data processing contract with Google and comply fully with the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities in our use of Google Analytics.
Demographic reports in Google Analytics
This website uses the ‘Demographics’ feature of Google Analytics. This enables reports to be prepared which contain information about the age, gender and interests of visitors to the website. This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google and from visitor data supplied by third-party providers. The data cannot be assigned to a particular person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the advertising settings in your Google account or prevent any of your data from being collected by Google Analytics as explained in the section ‘Opting out of data collection’.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you along with information which allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and wish to receive the newsletter. No other information is collected unless you choose to provide it. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not forward it to third parties. Data entered in the newsletter subscription form is processed solely on the basis on your consent (section 6[a] GDPR). You can withdraw your consent to us storing the data and email address and using these to send the newsletter at any time, for example by clicking on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the newsletter. If you withdraw your consent, the legality of any data processing operations already performed remains unaffected.
The data we hold on record for the purpose of the newsletter subscription is retained by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and erased when you cancel your subscription. Any data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members’ area) remains unaffected.
