General

This Data Protection Declaration gives you an overview of how Artquisite processes your data. Your personal data (e.g. title, name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, bank account details, credit card number) will only be processed by us in accordance with German data protection regulation. The following provisions will serve to inform you about the manner, scope and purpose of personal data collection, processing and use. This privacy policy only concerns our website. Should you be redirected to links on other websites, please be sure to inform yourself about how these sites handle your data.

Obtained data

  • Your personal data, to the extent that it is necessary for verifying credentials, configuring content or negotiating the contractual relationship, will only be used to process the contract. For example, your name and address will be transmitted to the supplier for the delivery of your goods.
  • Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties not privy to the agreement without your express permission or legal reason. Following the complete conclusion of the contract, your data will be blocked for further use. Once the mandatory storage periods defined in tax and commercial legislation have passed, your data will be deleted unless you have given express permission for the continued use of your data.

Privacy Police

The website www.artquisite.com  (nachfolgend „Website“) wird von BrandsExquisite Group betrieben.

1. Responsibility 

Verantwortlicher für die Verarbeitung Ihrer personenbezogenen Daten ist BrandsExquisite Group.

2. What is personal data? 

When we talk about “your data”, we are referring to personal data. This includes all information which allows us to identify you straight away or by combining it with other information. Examples: Your name, your telephone number, your customer number, order numbers or your email address. All information which cannot be used to identify you (even by combining it with other data) is classified as non-personal data. Non-personal data is also referred to as anonymous data. If we combine your personal data with anonymous data, all the data in this record counts as personal data. If we delete the personal data from a piece of information or a record on your person, the remaining data in this record no longer counts as personal data. This procedure is referred to as anonymisation. The following generally applies: If we request that you share particular personal information with us, you may of course refuse to do this. You can decide which information you share with us. We may, however, be unable to provide you with the desired services (at least not optimally). For example, you cannot have a package delivered without giving a delivery address. If particular information is required in connection with a service (mandatory information), we will inform you by marking it accordingly.

3. Which data does Artquisite process? 

  • Data entered by you

Insofar as you conclude contracts with us, fill out registration fields or grant consent, we will process the personal data provided by you, in particular data as defined in Section 2.

  • Automatically collected data

In order to be able to display the information that suits you on the website, we also process the following data:

  • Date and time of your visit
  • The characteristics of your device, in particular the operating system, the browser used and the size of your browser window
  • The IP address of your device on the Internet
  • Identification numbers that we store on your device. Using this identification number, we can recognize your device on the website. Technically, these identification numbers are stored in so-called cookies or eTags.
  • Device identifiers that consist of individual characteristics of your device. Based on these device identifiers, we can also recognize your device on the website. Examples of such device identifiers are
    • The "Ad-ID" of the Apple iOS operating system
    • The "advertising id" of the Android operating system

4. When does Artquisite process your data? 

4.1. Conclusion of contracts 

We process personal data of you, if you order products through our website or if you receive our newsletter.

Unless specified otherwise in the following provisions, the legal basis for the data processing connected with this is in each case Article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO.

4.2. Operation of the website

We use your data to provide access to the Artquisite website. Along with the device and access data collected whenever you use these services, the type of data processed as well as the processing purposes depend especially on how you use the functions and services provided via our services. We also use the data collected when you use our services to find out how our online offering is used. We use this information and other information in the course of shopping personalisation to improve our services and for personalised advertising.

5. Purposes of data processing 

5.1. Processing of orders in our online shop 

As far as you order products in our online shop, the processing of your personal data serves the conclusion and the execution of the contract as well as the processing of your order including payment and delivery. With a credit card payment we receive from our payment provider the so-called Payment-ID and the last four digits of your credit card number. This helps us to authenticate and assign your order and thus for your safety. The personal data required to effect payment is collected directly from the payment service provider.

Legal basis for the above data processing are Art. 6 paragraph 1 b) DSGVO or Art. 6 paragraph 1 f) DSGVO.

After selecting the payment service provider, you will be asked for the data required for the use of the respective payment service provider. This payment information will be forwarded directly to the respective payment service provider and will not be stored by us.

We only store the data you provided for the invoice and (if applicable, different) delivery address if you have chosen this option yourself so that you do not have to enter it again the next time you make your purchase. You can change this information at any time for the future.

If you do not agree with the payment method (s) offered to you, you can do so in writing by email support@artquisite.com We will then re-examine the decision taking into account your position.

We delete your personal data processed within the scope of orders at the latest after expiration of legal warranty periods, as far as not contrary to legal storage requirements.

5.2. Newsletter 

We offer all users of our community (users of the site www.artquisite.com) a newsletter. To register, the user can register with his e-mail address on the login page. The user then receives an activation link to the specified e-mail address that the user must visit to complete the registration. The user agrees in this way to the receipt of the newsletter (double opt-in procedure).

The user can revoke his consent at any time and without stating reasons. The easiest way to do this is by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link, which can be found in every newsletter.

The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR (consent).

5.3. Contact via contact form 

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, we will process the information you have provided, including the contact details you provided to process the request. In the case of follow-up questions, these data are also stored with us. Legal basis for this is 6 Art. 1 b) GDPR (fulfillment of the contract - the processing of the user's data is required for the fulfillment of the agreement to answer the questions or concerns) or Art. 6 para. 1 f) of the GDPR (balance of interests - based on our interest to handle requests from users of our website).

6. Tracking tools for website analysis 

6.1. General 

We want to make our websites as optimal as possible. Therefore, we use so-called "tracking" tools to technically improve our web offers. The tracking tools allow us to measure the use of our web sites. In particular, we use the tracking tools to gather the following information:

  • Which links online users click on other websites to access www.artquisite.com ?
  • What information is the user looking for on our website?
  • Which links or offers do users of our website click on?
    •  

Trough this information, we create statistics that help us understand the following questions:

  • Which pages are particularly attractive for the users of our website?
  • Which articles interest our users the most?
  • What offers should we offer our users?
    •  

In particular we use the automatically collected data mentioned above in section 3.2. The data is stored under a pseudonym only.

The legal basis for this is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

6.2. Google Analytics 

This website uses Google Analytics, a Google Inc. ("Google") web analysis service. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files stored on your computer that analyze your usage of the website. The data collected by the cookies about your usage of this website are generally transmitted and saved to a Google server in the USA. However, should you opt to activate IP anonymisation on this webpage, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union and other signatory states of the Agreement of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will a full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on your web activities and deliver additional related services in connection with your website usage and web activity.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be pooled with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the preferences of your browser software. However, we advise you that you will then no longer be able to make full use of all the functions of this website. In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and your use of the website (incl. your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: here(https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout).).

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()". As a result, IP addresses are processed shortened, a person-relatedness can be excluded. Insofar as the data collected about you is assigned a personal reference, it will be immediately excluded and the personal data will be deleted immediately.

We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. With the statistics we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the US, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacy-shield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The processing of your data in the context of Google Analytics takes place in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of Intervox.

6.3. Google Adwords / Remarketing 

We also use the Google AdWords Remarketing feature at Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The Remarketing feature enables Artquisite to present users of the Website with advertisements based on their interests on other sites within the Google Ad Network (i.e., Google itself, so-called "Google Ads" or other websites). For this the interaction of the users on our website is analyzed, in particular for which offers the user was interested, in order to be able to show the users targeted advertising even after visiting our website on other sites. For this purpose, Google cookie stores in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites on the Google Display Network. This cookie records the visits of these users. This number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular computer and not to identify a person; personal information will not be stored. The user can prevent the setting of the cookies by setting his browser software. The user may also disable the use of cookies by Google by following the link below and installing the plug-in provided there: www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. For more information about Google Adwords and Google's privacy policy, please visit: www.google.com/privacy/ads.

Data processing: 

We have entered into an agreement with Google for a contract data processing agreement with the German data protection authorities.

6.4. Google Adwords / Conversion  Tracking 

In addition, we also use Google AdWords Conversion Tracking, Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, ("Google"). When you click on a Google ad, a conversion tracking cookie is set on your machine. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, contain no personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain web pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, the cookies can not be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information obtained from the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers hear the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. The user can prevent the setting of the cookies by setting his browser software. The user may also disable the use of cookies by Google by following the link below and installing the plug-in provided there: www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. For more information about Google Adwords and Google's privacy policy, please visit: www.google.com/privacy/ads.

Data processing: 

We have entered into an agreement with Google for a contract data processing agreement with the German data protection authorities.

6.5. Doubleclick by Google

We also use Doubleclick by Google. Doubleclick by Google is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Doubleclick by Google is designed to showcase advertisements relevant to you. These advertisements are displayed on our website and on the websites of other providers who also work with Google.

Our website stores in your browser for Google a so-called "cookie" with a pseudonymous identification number (ID). Google uses this cookie ID to recognize your browser when you visit our website (or other sites whose providers also use Doubleclick by Google). In this way, Google tries to capture the following information:

  • Which web pages did you visit?
  • Which Google ads did you see?
  • Which of these ads did you click on?

Based on this information, Google will select the ads that Google presents to you. You can use Google to display such advertising here manage. You can find more information about Google advertising  here. You can find more information about privacy at Google here.

Google operates its servers in the US, i. in a third country outside the EU. Google's DoubleClick service submits your data to these servers. There is currently no decision by the EU Commission that the US generally provides an adequate level of protection. Google has, however, the "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework ", which provides appropriate and appropriate guarantees. More information can be found here here.

The legal basis for the inclusion of Doubleclick by Google described in this section is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (balance of interests, based on our interest in marketing the website for advertising purposes). Google collects and processes the data resulting from this within its own responsibility.

6.6. Use of Facebook plugins 

We also use features from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. By clicking on the corresponding Facebook plug-in, a connection is established between your browser and the Facebook servers. This allows us to use the different functionalities of Facebook. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO (performance of the contract and pre-contractual measures).

When you click on the Facebook plug-in, data is transferred from your browser to Facebook in the USA. There is currently no decision by the EU Commission that the US generally provides an adequate level of data protection. However, Facebook has committed to comply with the US Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield Agreement between the EU and the US on the collection, use and storage of personal information from EU member states. More information can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacyshield.

If you do not wish to assign this data to your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before clicking on the Facebook plug-in. Interactions, in particular the use of a comment function or the clicking on a "Like" or "Share" button are also passed on to Facebook. Find out more at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy.

6.7. Facebook Custom Audiences 

We use on our websites Facebook Website Custom Audiences. For this purpose, so-called Facebook pixels are integrated on our websites. This is Javascript code. These pixels generate a hash from your usage data, which is transmitted to Facebook, e.g. Browser information. If available, the Facebook cookie will also be contacted and your Facebook ID will be transmitted. If you have a Facebook profile and log in there, you can use the data provided by the pixels to present individualized advertising for Artquisite products and offers. Data from users who do not have a Facebook profile will be discarded unused by Facebook. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook and the settings for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of Facebook https://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.

8. Storage duration

Personal data will only be kept for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here, or as provided for by the statutory retention periods.
