3 Purposes of data processing, legal bases and legitimate interests pursued by the controller or a third party, and categories of recipients
3.1 Accessing our websites/applications
Each time you access websites/applications, information is sent to our website/application server by your end device’s web browser and is temporarily stored in ‘log files’. The stored data records contain the following data, which is stored until automatic erasure: date and time of access, name of the page accessed, IP address of the requesting device, referrer URL (URL from which you came to our website), amount of data transferred, loading time, product and version information of the browser used as well as the name of your access provider.
The legal basis for processing the IP address is Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on
- ensuring a smooth connection is established;
- ensuring the convenient use of our website/application;
- evaluating system security and stability; and
- Fraud prevention (see 3.2.2)
This data does not provide any direct indication of your identity and we do not make any assumptions in this regard.
The data will be stored and automatically erased once the aforementioned purposes have been achieved. The standard periods for erasure depend on the criterion of necessity.
3.2. Establishment, execution and/or termination of a contract
3.2.1 Data processing on contract conclusion
If you register with one of our websites/applications and conclude a contract with us, we process the data required for the conclusion, execution or termination of a contract with you. This includes:
- First name, surname
- E-mail address
The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR, i.e. you provide us with the data on the basis of the respective contractual relationship (e.g. management of your customer account, processing of a purchase agreement) between you and us. In order to process your e-mail address in the event of a purchase via our websites/applications, we are also obliged to send an electronic order confirmation (Article 6  [c] of the GDPR) on the basis of legal requirements in the German Civil Code (Bundesgesetzbuch, BGB).
If we do not use your data for advertising purposes (see 3.3. below), we store the data collected for contract processing until the statutory or possibly contractual warranty and guarantee rights expire. After this period, we shall retain the information concerning the contractual relationship required under commercial and tax law for the periods specified by law. For this period, the data will only be processed again in the event of verification by tax authorities.
3.2.2 Use of data for fraud prevention purposes
The data you provide when placing an order can be used to check whether an atypical order process has occurred (e.g. artificially generated traffic for our shop partners). We fundamentally have a legitimate interest in carrying out such a check. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR.
3.2.3 Categories of recipients
We use contract processors to process your data. A processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible for data processing. Processors do not use the data for their own purposes, but carry out the data processing exclusively for the person responsible.
220.127.116.11 Other third party partners
In addition, we use other third-party partners who are necessary for the provision of services and the achievement of various purposes. We transmit personal data to these third party partners if this is necessary in the context of the provision of services (for example to affiliate networks for pure billing purposes).
The legal basis for this data transfer is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b), f) GDPR.
3.3 Data processing for advertising purposes
We give you the option of subscribing to our newsletter on our websites/applications. To ensure that no errors occurred when entering the e-mail address, we use the ‘double opt-in procedure’ (DOI procedure): after you have entered your e-mail address in the registration field, we will send you a confirmation link to the address provided. Only when you click on this confirmation link will your e-mail address be added to our newsletter mailing list. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR.
Reference to the right of withdrawal
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future using the unsubscribe option at the end of each newsletter.
If you register for competitions organised by us, we will use the data you provide at the time of registration for the purpose of executing the participation contract, particularly notifying you of your winnings and, if applicable, advertising our offers and/or those of our competition partners. Detailed information can be found in the conditions of participation for each competition. The legal bases for this data processing are Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR, Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR.
4 Website and website optimisation
As the operator of the www.shoparound.ro website, shopping24 collects data on the behavior of users on the website mentioned (tracking data). This includes, among other things, which individual sub-pages (item detail pages) were accessed. For this purpose, shopping24 and / or partners of shopping24 can set cookies in the browser used by the respective user. The collection of tracking data is generally only permitted if you have given your prior consent. You can give such consent by clicking the "OK" button in the "cookie banner" displayed on www.shoparound.ro. The granting of consent is not necessary for the processing of such tracking data, which is required for the offer on the www.shoparound.ro website. This includes e.g. the setting of cookies for the purpose of displaying the shopping cart. Among other things, shopping24 can use the information about your usage behavior to show you interesting offers on www.shoparound.ro or to advertise you on other websites using personalized content (e.g. retargeting). Insofar as personal data about your usage behavior on www.shoparound.ro are also provided by other providers, e.g. can be used for the purpose of "enriching your own information", such use will only take place in these cases if you have given your prior consent. In these cases, the further processing of the data collected on www.shoparound.ro takes place under the sole responsibility of the provider. The providers can transfer the data to the USA as part of this further processing. With regard to the USA, the European Court of Justice has ruled that this is a country with an inadequate level of data protection. In this context, there is a particular risk that your data will be processed by American institutions / authorities for control and monitoring purposes without you being given a sufficient legal remedy against this. Tracking data that shopping24 collects and stores itself is processed by shopping24 exclusively in a pseudonymized manner. This prevents the data from being assigned to you personally. If you want to delete individual cookies set in your browser or want to find out which service providers / providers have set cookies in your browser, you can do this via a preference manager".
