Protecting privacy when processing personal data is a very important concern for Ansarystyle. Data collected from the customer is processed pursuant to the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other statutory provisions that apply to electronic business transactions. We therefore ask you to take note of the following explanations and possibly add this document to your files:
I. Automatically collected non-personal data:
When a customer visits http://www.ansarystyle.com and its subpages the web server normally saves the name of the customer's Internet service provider, the website from where the customer comes, the web pages that the customer visits at Ansarystyle, as well as the date and duration of the visit. Ansarystyle uses this information to determine the attractiveness of http://www.ansarystyle.com and to improve its services and content. This process does not entail collecting personal data.
II. Collection, processing and use of personal data:
Personal data are collected only if they are provided by the customer himself for the purpose of executing a contract and/or for setting up the customer account. The personal data collected from the customer are used only for the purpose for which the customer provided these data to Ansarystyle and/or for which use and transmittal he issued his approval. After the contractual relationship has been completely consummated the customer data are stored with consideration given to fiscal and commercial retention periods; after expiry of these periods, however, the data are deleted if the customer has not expressly approved further use of these data. Collection of or transmittal of personal data to governmental institutions and agencies will be performed only within the framework of mandatory national regulations. Ansarystyle employees have been contractually bound to respect the confidentiality of data.
III. Passing personal data on to third parties:
The personal data collected by Ansarystyle are passed on to the transport company commissioned to deliver the goods in conjunction with order processing to the extent this is required for the delivery. Personal data are also passed on to third parties for the purpose of completing the payment process, e.g. the commissioned bank.
IV. Cookies – information that is automatically saved on the customer's computer:
When visiting the website http://www.ansarystyle.com and its pages, information in the form of a "cookie" may be temporarily or permanently saved on the customer's computer which automatically recognises the customer on his next visit. Cookies are little text files that make it possible e.g. to adapt a website to the customer's interests. If the customer does not wish Ansarystyle to save cookies, we ask him to configure the Internet browser he is using so that the cookies are deleted from the computer hard drive, blocks all cookies or issues a warning before storing cookies.
V. Use of Google Analytics:
Ansarystyle uses Google Analytics for optimising its website. This procedure serves the purpose of evaluating use of the website by customers, gathering reports on website activities for Ansarystyle and providing other services associated with website use and Internet use. The complete IP address or an abbreviated IP address with the help of the extension _anonymizelp() may also be further processed. Google may forward the stored information to third parties if such is statutorily mandated or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google. In this Google Inc. web analysis service, cookies are also stored on the customer's computer. The information generated in this way is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If a user does not wish cookies to be stored, he is asked to configure the Internet browser being used so that it deletes cookies from the computer hard drive, blocks all cookies or issues a warning before storing cookies. By using the Ansarystyle website, the customer issues his approval of the processing of the data about him collected by Google for use by Google Analytics. The customer may revoke data collection and storage at any time with future effect within the meaning of item VII. Alternatively the customer may use the Google Analytics deactivation add-on at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. It should be noted that this option is not available for every Internet browser.
VI. Links to other websites:
http://www.ansarystyle.com and its subpages may contain links to other websites. Ansarystyle is not responsible for their data protection policies or contents.
VII. Information on customer rights:
On request, Ansarystyle will inform the customer as soon as possible and in writing whether and which personal data about the customer issuing the request are stored at Ansarystyle. If, despite efforts made to ensure data correctness and currency, false customer data are stored, these data will be corrected by Ansarystyle if so requested. In addition to this right to correction, the customer may also have a right to have the personal data collected by Ansarystyle blocked and deleted.
Ansarystyle would like to use customer data to be kept informed about its products. The customer's consent is a precondition, of course. If this consent is subsequently missing, it can be provided at any time in writing, e.g. per email or fax.
In the event there are additional questions on the collection, processing and use of the personal data and/or on the correction, deletion or blockage, we ask you to contact Ansarystyle. The contact address can be found in the website credits.
