III. General information on data processing.

1. EXTENT OF PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING

We collect and use personal data from our users only as far as this is required for providing a functional website as well as our content and services. Personal data from our users is collected and processed routinely only with the consent of our users. An exception to this applies in cases where requesting consent is impossible before data is processed or where legal provisions permit the data to be processed.

2. LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA

Where we ask users to consent to the processing of their personal data, we do so on the lawful basis of Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Where personal data is processed to fulfil a contract which the user concerned has entered into, we do so on the lawful basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. This also applies to processing required for taking steps prior to entering into a contract.

If processing is required to maintain the legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the user concerned do not override the above-mentioned interest, the lawful basis for processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

3. DATA ERASURE AND RETENTION PERIOD

The personal data of the user concerned is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. It may be permissible to store data for a longer period if European or national legislators have provided for this possibility in EU regulations, laws or other directives to which the data controller is subject. The data is also blocked or deleted even if a mandatory retention period specified by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless further storage is required for concluding or executing a contract.

4. SOCIAL MEDIA

On our website, we have included links to the social networks Pinterest, Instagram and Houzz. You will recognise the links by the logo of each site. The social media sites will open by clicking on the links, but our data protection policy does not extend to these sites. For details of the terms that apply to these linked sites, please refer to the data protection policies for each of the sites; you will find these on:

Pinterest: https://policy.pinterest.com/de/privacy-policy
Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875
Houzz: https://www.houzz.de/privacyPolicy

Prior to accessing these links there is no transmission of personal information to the respective providers. When you access the linked site, this constitutes the basis for data processing by the site provider.

IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files.

1. DESCRIPTION AND EXTENT OF DATA PROCESSING

Our system automatically collects data and information from the accessing computer system every time our website is accessed. The following data is collected:

(1) Browser type / browser version
(2) User operating system
(3) User’s public IP address
(4) Date and time the website was accessed
(5) Referring websites
(6) Transferred data volume, and
(7) Notification of whether access was successful.

The data is also stored in log files in our system. This data is not saved together with any other personal data of the user.

2. LAWFUL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING

The temporary storage of data and log files is lawful pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

3. PURPOSE OF DATA PROCESSING

The IP address is temporarily stored in the system as it is necessary to provide website access to the user’s computer. The user’s IP address is retained while that website is being accessed.

The data is saved in log files to ensure website functionality. The data is also used to optimise the website and ensure the security of our IT systems. The data is not evaluated in this context for marketing purposes.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

4. RETENTION PERIOD

The data will be deleted when it is no longer needed for the purpose it was collected. For data collected to provide access to the website, this will be at the end of every session.

We also save the following access data in the log files:

Data is not disclosed to third parties or otherwise evaluated. A personalised user profile is not created.

If data is saved in log files, it is deleted after no more than 30 days. Some data may be preserved for a longer period of time. In this case, user IP addresses are deleted or made unidentifiable, so that it is no longer possible to associate them with the accessing client.

5. OBJECTION AND REMOVAL OPTION

Collecting data to provide access to the website and storing the data in log files is essential for operating the website. This means that the user has no possibility to object to this.

V. Use of cookies.

1. DESCRIPTION AND EXTENT OF DATA PROCESSING

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are data files stored by the Internet browser or saved on the user’s computer system by the Internet browser. If a user accesses a website, a cookie may be saved on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a specific string of characters that allows the browser to be uniquely identified every time the website is accessed.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some of our website’s functions require that the accessing browser can be identified after changing sites. The following data is saved and transferred in the cookies:

(1) User information in the wish list
(2) User information in the kitchen online planner
(3) User information in the kitchen configurator

Our website also uses cookies that can analyse users’ browsing behaviour. The following data can be transferred through these:

(4) Resource access including the accessing, anonymised IP address for tracking and marketing purposes

Technical measures are used to pseudonymise the user data collected in this way.

2. LAWFUL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING

The lawful basis for processing personal data using cookies for tracking and marketing purposes is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR.

3. PURPOSE OF DATA PROCESSING

a) Technically necessary cookies

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to facilitate website use for users. Some functions of our website cannot be provided without using cookies. For these functions, it is necessary for the browser to be recognised even after changing sites. The following applications require cookies:

(1) nobilia.de wish list function
(2) Kitchen online planner
(3) Kitchen configurator

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles.

B) Tracking cookies

Tracking cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. These cookies give us information about how our website is used, allowing us to steadily improve our web presence.

c) Marketing cookies

Marketing cookies are used to provide personalised content that is relevant to your interests.

(1) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics for statistical evaluation. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94034, USA. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, within member states of the European Union or other states party to the European Economic Area Agreement, your IP address will first be abbreviated. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website traffic, and to provide other services for the website operator relating to the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings of your browser. Please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use the full range of functions on this website. You may also prevent Google from tracking and processing the data generated by the cookies relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by clicking on the following link and downloading and installing the browser plug-in provided: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For further information on this, please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). Please note that “anonymizeIp();” was added to the Google Analytics code on our website to anonymise IP addresses by deleting the final 8-bit byte.

(2) Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketing website tags to be managed using an interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not register personal data. The tool causes other tags to be activated which may, in turn, register data under certain circumstances. Google Tag Manager does not access this information. If recording has been deactivated on domain or cookie level, this setting will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
For more information about Google Tag Manager, please visit: https://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

(3) Google Conversion

We use the services of Google Ads Conversion to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising (Google Ads) on external websites. We can determine how successful individual advertising measures are in relation to the data for the advertising campaigns. We want to show you advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.

Google Conversion Tracking is a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you have your habitual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the data controller. This means that Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated to Google which is responsible for processing your data and ensuring compliance with applicable data protection laws.

These advertisements are provided by Google using “ad servers”. We use ad server cookies for this purpose that allow certain parameters for gauging success, such as the appearance of advertisements or clicks by users, to be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your computer.

These cookies enable Google to recognise your web browser. If a user visits certain website pages belonging to a Google Ad advertiser and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the advertiser can recognise that the user has clicked on the advertisement and has been redirected to this page. Each Google Ads advertiser is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of a Google Ads advertiser. We do not collect or process any personal data in the previously mentioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognise which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data regarding the use of advertisements, however; in particular, we cannot identify users based on this information.

Google uses strict standards to ensure the security of the data; only pages containing the Google conversion code are recorded. The data collected is encrypted and only used in secure servers. For more information and Google’s privacy policy, please refer to: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de

(4) Google Remarketing

Our website uses the remarketing functions of the Google Ads service. The remarketing function allows users of our website to see our advertisements based on their interests when they visit other websites within the Google display network (in Google searches or on YouTube, “Google Ads” or on other websites).

For this purpose, the interaction of users on our website is analysed, such as which offers the user was interested in, in order to show users targeted advertising on other Internet sites after visiting our website. Google does this by storing a number in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites within the Google display network. This number, known as a “cookie,” is used to track visits by these users. This number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular device and not to identify an individual, and no personal information is stored.

For more information and Google’s privacy policy, please refer to: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de

(5) Facebook pixel

Our website uses the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function of Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). This allows users of the website to see interest-based advertisements (“Facebook ads”) when visiting the Facebook social network or other websites that also use this process. We want to show you advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server. We do not have any influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address and other identifying features.

It is possible to deactivate the “Facebook Custom Audiences” function for logged in users at
https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen#.

For more information about Facebook’s data processing, please visit https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

(6) Pinterest Conversion Tracking

Our website uses the conversion tracking technology of the Pinterest social network (Pinterest Europe Ltd., Palmerston House, 2nd Floor, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland), which enables us to show our website visitors who have already taken an interest in our website and our content/offerings and are Pinterest members, relevant advertisements and offers on Pinterest. For this purpose, a so-called conversion tracking pixel from Pinterest is integrated in our pages, which tells Pinterest when you visit our website that you have called up our website and which parts of our offer you are interested in. You can deactivate the collection of data for displaying interest-based advertising on Pinterest at any time in your account settings on Pinterest at https://www.pinterest.de/settings.

For more information about Pinterest conversion tracking technology, please visit
https://help.pinterest.com/de/business/article/track-conversions-with-pinterest-tag.

4. RETENTION PERIOD, OBJECTION AND ERASURE OPTION

Cookies are saved on the user’s computer and transmitted from this computer to our website. This means you as the user have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your web browser you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. The retention period for Google Analytics is 14 months, and the language information for the website is stored for 180 days. Previously saved cookies can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may not be possible to use all functions of our website to their full extent.
