II. General information on the collection and transfer of personal data and the period for which it is stored
1. We process your personal data in compliance with the provisions in the GDPR, the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and all other relevant legislation.
2. Your personal data is primarily processed for the purpose of establishing and fulfilling a contractual relationship with you. When you contact us by email or using a contact form, we store the data you give us (your email address, your name and phone number if applicable) in order to respond to your queries. The principal legal basis for this is Art. 6 no. 1 b) GDPR. Moreover, if you give us your consent separately as per Art. 6 no. 1 lit. a) and Art. 7 GDPR, this may be understood under data protection law as permission to process your personal data. We also process your data in order to meet our legal obligations, particularly those incumbent on us under commercial and fiscal law. The legal basis for this form of processing is Art. 6 no. 1 lit. c) GDPR. If necessary, we also process your data on the basis of Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR in order to pursue our legitimate interests or those of third parties.
3. Your personal data will not be transferred to any third party for purposes other than those specified below. We only transfer your personal data to third parties if you have expressly consented to us doing so as per Art. 6 no.1 lit. a) GDPR, if the transfer of your personal data is necessary to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest in the non-transfer of your data that is worthy of protection, if your data has to be transferred to fulfil a legal obligation as per Art. 6 no. 1 lit. c) GDPR, or if the transfer of your data is legally admissible and necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as described in Art. 6 no. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
4. If we use contracted service providers for individual functions that constitute part of our web-based services, or if we wish to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes as described below. We will also specify the criteria determining the period for which your data will be stored.
5. We erase your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for any of the following purposes. After the contractual relationship with you has expired, we will retain your personal data for as long as the law obliges us to do so. This is regularly the case in connection with the statutory retention periods and obligations to produce evidence specified in the Commercial and Fiscal Codes, among others. The retention periods stipulated in this legislation can be up to ten years. It can also occur that personal data must be retained for the period during which claims can be asserted against us (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).

III. Collection of personal data through our website
1. Visiting our website
1.1 If you are using our website solely for information and do not register or transmit information to us in any other way, we only collect the personal data which your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data; this is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to guarantee its stability and security.

1.2 The legal basis for the temporary storage of this data and these log files is Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
1.3 The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to ensure that the website can be displayed in your browser.

2. Use of cookies
2.1 Cookies are stored on your computer system whenever you use our website. Cookies are text files stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser in your computer system. A cookie can be stored in your operating system whenever you access a website.

  • Persistent cookies (used for a limited period)
  • Third-party cookies (from third-party providers as per separate information). 


2.3 Transient cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser. These include session cookies in particular. Session cookies save a so-called session ID that assigns different requests from your browser to the same session. This means that your computer can be recognised when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser. The legal basis for processing personal data using transient cookies is Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The purpose for which these cookies are used is to make your use of the website easier. Moreover, some of the functions on our website cannot be used without cookies. For these, it is essential that the browser is recognised after you click on another page. This purpose constitutes our legitimate interest in processing your personal data pursuant to Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
2.4 Persistent cookies are used solely in connection with the web analysis services we employ and only for as long as their purpose requires; their maximum lifespan is two years.

The legal basis for processing personal data using persistent cookies is Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. These cookies allow us to find out how our website is used and thus to continue optimising our web-based services. This purpose constitutes our legitimate interest in processing your personal data pursuant to Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

For this, you usually have to provide further personal data, which we use to provide the respective service and to which the above-mentioned principles of data processing apply.

The legal basis for processing personal data in order to fulfil statutory storage and retention obligations is Art. 6 no. 1 lit. c) GDPR.
5.4 We process the data you provide for the purpose of executing your order. In order to fulfil the contract, we pass on your data to the forwarder contracted to deliver your order insofar as this is necessary for the purpose of delivering goods you have ordered. Depending on which payment service provider you select during the order process, we pass on the payment data collected for the purpose of processing your payment to the credit institution commissioned to do so and, if applicable, to the payment service providers commissioned by us or the payment service selected. These payment service providers may also collect this data themselves if you create an account with them. In these cases, you must use your access data to log in to the payment service provider’s website during the order process. If so, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies. Orders are processed using ERP solutions from “Afterbuy” (VIA Online GmbH, Krefeld) and “pixi” (Descartes Systems GmbH, Munich).

We also store your IP address and the times at which you register for the newsletter and confirm your registration. The purpose of this procedure is to have proof of your registration and, if necessary, to be able to clarify any improper use of your personal data.

7. Use of Google Analytics
7.1 This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and facilitate analysis of your website use. The information about your website use generated by the cookie is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address in a European Union member state or in another state party to the agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operators of this website to evaluate your website use, generate reports on website activity, and render other services associated with website and internet use for the website operator.
7.2 The IP address transmitted from your browser for use by Google Analytics is not amalgamated with any other Google data.
7.3 You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser settings accordingly; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the website functions in full. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data relating to your website use that is generated by the cookie (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
7.4 This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This facilitates the processing of IP addresses after they have been truncated, thus excluding any risk of the IP address being associated with a specific person. This means any of your data containing a personal reference is immediately excluded and your personal data is immediately deleted.
7.5 We use Google Analytics to analyse use of our website and to make regular improvements. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our website and make it more interesting for you as the user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has bound itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
7.6 Information about third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001
Terms of service: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html
General information on data protection: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en
Privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de.


8. Use of Google Adwords Conversion
8.1 We use advertising on external websites (so-called Google Adwords) provided by the Google Adwords service to draw attention to the attractive offers on our own website. We can use the data from the advertising campaigns to determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. Our legitimate interests in this situation are to show you advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you, and to calculate advertising costs fairly.
8.2 Google delivers this advertising through so-called “ad servers”. For this, we use ad server cookies with which certain parameters of success such as advertisement display and user clicks can be measured. If you access our website through a Google advertisement, Google Adwords will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually become invalid after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The analysis values stored for this cookie usually comprise the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), and opt-out information (marking indicating that the user no longer wishes to be addressed).
8.3 These cookies allow Google to recognise your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and been redirected to this page. A separate cookie is assigned to each Adwords customer. This means that cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect or process personal data in the context of these advertising measures. Google merely furnishes us with statistical evaluations. These allow us to identify which of the advertising measures used is most successful. We do not receive any other data from the use of these advertising materials; in particular, we are not able to use this information to identify users.
8.4 The market tool uses causes your browser to automatically establish a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the utilisation of this tool, and the information provided is therefore based on the best of our knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. This means that if you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or are not logged in, the provider may be able to find out and store your IP address.
8.5 There are various ways in which you can block your participation in this tracking process: a) you can block ads from third-party providers by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by disabling third-party cookies; b) you can deactivate conversion tracking cookies by going to https://www.google.com/settings/ads and setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com” (this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies); c) you can deactivate targeted ads from providers participating in the "About Ads" self-regulation program by going to http://www.aboutads.info/choices and changing the settings (this setting will also be deleted when you delete your cookies); d) you can permanently deactivate cookies in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers by going to http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin and changing the settings. Please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full.
8.6 The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6 no. 1 lit. f) GDPR. You will find more information about Google’s data protection policies at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html.

The purpose is to adapt our online shop to meet your needs more closely, for example by providing individual product presentations. The data collected by EBI is not amalgamated with your personal data unless you consent to this.

  • When did you buy from us, and which products did you buy – in which category and for how much?
  • Did you cancel the order process, and if so, at which stage?
