3. General information and mandatory information
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection statement.
When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection statement explains which 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. when communicating by email) may leave gaps in security. It is not possible to protect data completely from third-party access.
Information about the data controller
The data controller for the data processing on this website is:
In Vino Veritas GbR
The data controller is the natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides upon the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may withdraw your previously granted consent at any time. In regard to this, an informal notification by email to us will be sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out before the withdrawal will remain unaffected by the withdrawal.
The right to object to data collection in special cases and direct advertising (Art. 21 of the GDPR)
IF DATA PROCESSING IS BASED UPON ART. 6 PARA. 1 (E) OR (F) OF THE GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS IS ALSO APPLICABLE TO PROFILING BASED UPON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RELEVANT LEGAL BASIS UPON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED IS TAKEN FROM THIS DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT. IF YOU RAISE ANY OBJECTIONS, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS THE PERSONAL DATA IN QUESTION, UNLESS WE CAN PROVIDE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH PREVAIL OVER YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR WHERE THE PROCESSING SERVES THE APPLICATION, EXERCISE OR DEFENCE OF ANY LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 PARA. 1 OF THE GDPR).

The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have the data, which we process automatically based upon your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, issued to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests which you send to us as the website operator, this page uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data which you transmit to us cannot be read by any third parties.
Encrypted payment transactions on this website
If, after the conclusion of a chargeable contract, there is an obligation to provide us with your payment details (e.g. account number for direct debit authorisation), this data will be required to allow payment processing.
Payment transactions using any commonly used means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are carried out exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
With encrypted communication, the payment data which you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to information free of charge about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, the right to correct or delete this data. In regard to this, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in the legal notice if you have any further questions about your personal data.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. With regard to this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing exists in the following instances:
- if you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we will usually need time to check this. For the duration of the investigation, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
- if the processing of your personal data has happened or happens illegally, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of its deletion.
- if we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being deleted.
- if you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR, both your and our interests must be carefully balanced. As long as it is not clear whose interests take precedence, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest to the European Union or a Member State.
Objection to advertising emails
The use of contact data published within the framework of the legal notice obligation for the distribution of unsolicited advertisements and information materials is accordingly rejected. The operators of these websites expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam emails.
4. Data collection on this website
Some websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do no damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies which we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies will remain on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time that you visit us.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are disabled, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Those cookies which are required to perform the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions which you require (e.g. the shopping cart function) are stored upon the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. If the corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is performed exclusively upon the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (a) of the GDPR; this consent may be withdrawn at any time.
Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing conduct) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection statement.
Server log files
The provider of the websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- the browser type and browser version
- the operating system used
- the referrer URL
- the host name of the accessing computer
- the time of the server request
- the IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This data is recorded upon the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – the server log files must be recorded for this purpose.
If you send us any requests using the contact form, your details from the request form, including the contact details which you provided on it, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of any follow-up questions. We will not forward this data without your consent.
This data is processed upon the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (b) of the GDPR, if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is required for the performance of any pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based upon our legitimate interest in the effective processing of any requests addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR) or upon your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) of the GDPR) provided that this has been sought.
The data which you enter on the contact form will remain with us until you ask for its deletion, withdraw your consent to its storage, or the purpose for the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Any mandatory legal provisions – in particular the retention periods – will remain unaffected.
Requests made by email, phone or fax
If you contact us by email, phone or fax, your request, including all personal data resulting from it (name, request), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not forward this data without your consent.
This data is processed upon the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (b) of the GDPR, if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the performance of any pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based upon your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) of the GDPR) and/or upon our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of any requests addressed to us.
The data which you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you ask for its deletion, withdraw your consent to its storage, or the purpose for the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Any mandatory statutory provisions – in particular the statutory retention periods – will remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as it is necessary for the establishment, the content-related design, or any change of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is carried out upon the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (b) of the GDPR, which allows for the processing of data to fulfil a contract or any pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process and use personal data concerning the usage of this website (usage data) insofar as this is necessary to provide the user with the service or to send invoices related to it.
The customer data collected will be deleted after the order has been completed or the business relationship has ended. Statutory retention periods will remain unaffected.
Data transmission when concluding a contract for online shops, retailers and shipping of goods
We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary within the context of contract processing, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or to the credit institution commissioned with the payment processing. A further transfer of the data will not take place, or only if you have expressly consented to the transfer. Your data will not be forwarded to any third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 (b) of the GDPR, which allows for the processing of data in order to fulfil a contract or to perform any pre-contractual measures.
5. Plugins and tools
Google web fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser which you are using must connect to the Google servers. Google hence obtains the knowledge that this website was accessed using your IP address. Google web fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
