2. General notes and required information

Data protection

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

Various items of personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data is information with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. via email communication) can have security holes. Full protection against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

Note on the responsible authority

The authority responsible for data processing on this website is:

Küsten Gemüse GmbH

Klinkerstraße 2
, 25718 Friedrichskoog


Tel.: +49 4854 90698 0


Mail: info@kuestengemuese.de

The responsible authority is the natural or legal person who, alone or with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Storage period

Unless a specific storage period is mentioned within this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for data processing is no longer valid. If you make a legitimate request for erasure or withdraw your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. tax or commercial retention periods). If the latter is the case, deletion will occur after these reasons are no longer valid.

Note on data transfer to the USA

Our website includes tools from companies based in the USA. When these tools are active, your personal data can be passed on to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a secure third country in terms of EU data protection law. US companies are obligated to disclose personal data to security authorities without you, as the data subject, being able to take legal action against this. It therefore cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may be able to process, evaluate and permanently store your sensitive data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. This does not affect the legality of the data processing carried out before withdrawal of consent.

Right to object to the collection of data in particular cases, as well as to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF DATA PROCESSING IS CONDUCTED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 PARA. 1 LIT. E OR F OF THE GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA DUE TO YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RELEVANT LEGAL BASES APPLICABLE TO PROCESSING CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN PROVIDE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PROCESSING IS NECESSARY FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT, EXERCISE OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL CLAIMS (RIGHT TO OBJECT PURSUANT TO ART 21 PARA. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA SHALL NO LONGER BE PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES (RIGHT TO OBJECT PURSUANT TO ART. 21 PARA. 2 GDPR).

Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in charge

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The right to complain exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have the personal data that we process based on your consent or obtained during fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this shall only be done if it is technically possible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for safety reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential contents, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us, as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

Access, erasure and rectification

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to receive free information regarding your saved personal data, its origin and recipient, the purpose of data processing, and, if necessary, the right to rectify or erase this data at any time. You can contact us with questions regarding the topic of personal data at any time using the address that can be found in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time using the address provided in the legal notice. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you contest the accuracy of the personal data we have on file. We usually need time to check this. For the duration of the checks, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  • If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening illegally, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being erased.
  • If you have lodged a compliant pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, you interests and our interests must be weighed up to see which outweigh the other. For the duration it is unclear whose interests outweigh the other, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of personal data, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.

Objection to advertising emails

Use of the contact data published in the legal notice for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby prohibited. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam emails.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that do not cause any harm to your end device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or your web browser automatically deletes them.

In some cases, cookies from third parties can also be saved on your end device when you access our website (third party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain third party services (e.g. cookies for processing payment services).

Cookies have different functions. Many cookies are technically required, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or displaying videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertising.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions that you want (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure the online audience), are saved based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR, unless another legal basis is provided. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of their services. If consent for the storage of cookies has been requested, the cookies concerned are stored exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR); this consent can be withdrawn at any time.

You can change your browser settings so that you can always be informed about the storing of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your web browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

If cookies are used by third parties or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this separately in this data protection declaration and, if necessary, ask for your consent.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called ‘server log files’, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These include:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

This data is collected based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of their website – this requires the recording of the server log files.

Contact form

If you send us an enquiry using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact information you provide, will be saved by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of any follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR, insofar as your enquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries sent to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) provided this was asked for.

The data you enter in to the contact form remains with us until you ask for it to be erased, withdraw your consent to its storage or the purpose for data storage is no longer valid (e.g. after your enquiry has been fully processed). Mandatory statutory regulations – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Enquiry via email, telephone or fax

If you contact us via email, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all the personal data resulting from it (name, enquiry), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR, insofar as your enquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries sent to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) provided this was asked for.

The data you send to us via contact enquiries remains with us until you ask for it to be erased, withdraw your consent to its storage or the purpose for data storage is no longer valid (e.g. after your enquiry has been fully processed). Mandatory statutory regulations – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
