Information duty on data protection and privacy policy:

Data protection

General

Thank you for your interest in ourwebsite of BREE Collection GmbH ("BREE"). Bree understands that the careful handling of your personal information and the protection of your privacy are very important to you. That's why Bree values your trust in being conscientious with this information. Bree takes data protection seriously and complies with the relevant legal regulations on data protection, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The aforementioned regulations provide a high level of data protection and in this sense your personal data is treated confidentially.

Information for the collection and use of the data

With regard to the existing data protection regulations, BREE is the operator of this website and according to the relevant regulations of the EU DSGVO is responsible for the processing of your personal data. The contact details of the website operator can be found in the imprint of this website under Impress.

The collection of data by BREE is based on the information given to us. BREE regularly needs this information to conduct business - the manufacture, distribution and sale of handbags, business, travel and leisure luggage, leather goods and accessories. As far as, for example, via trade fair visits, visits to stores and business contacts including e-mail or via the e-mail addresses stated on the website or the contact form for sending out the newsletter personal data (eg name, address, e-mail address) are collected, this is done on a voluntary basis. This data from customers, contacts of customers or contacts of suppliers are acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) EU GDPR for the fulfillment of a contract, for the execution of pre-contractual measures or, if desired and permissible, after given consent in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) EU GDPR is processed for its own marketing purposes and will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those stated without your explicit consent. Authorized third parties who receive data may, for example, be service providers. The provision of your personal data is not required by law. Contractually, the provision is regularly required to carry out the business operations and contractual processing in order to be able to communicate with you in the context of contract initiation or contract execution and to be able to guarantee settlement.

The storage of the data takes place for the period and the duration of pre-contractual measures, the execution of the contract or the business relationship or as long as you independently have an information need for our products. The stored data (usually name, address, e-mail address, telephone number) will be deleted as soon as the purpose has ceased and there are no legal tax, archiving or other obligations. In the case of existing legal obligations, the deletion takes place after elimination of the legal deadlines. These are usually 6 or 10 years.

BREE points out that, in particular, unencrypted data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may be vulnerable. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties can not be guaranteed.

Information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing and data portability and revocation

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. This includes a right to information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing and data portability of these data, as far as no legal regulations oppose. In the case of consent given to us to collect and store your data, you have the right to revoke your data at any time. Until the revocation, the storage and collection of data remains legal. If you have any questions, you can always contact the contact address in the impress under Impress or the data protection officer.

Contact for Data protection

Great emphasis is placed on transparency. If you have any questions about the handling of your data or the privacy policy of BREE, you can contact our data protection officer by e-mail “datenschutzbeauftragter@bree.de” or via our postal address with the addition "the data protection officer".

Right of Appeal

As the person concerned, you have a right of appeal to the supervisory authority according to art. 77 DSGVO if you believe that the processing of your personal data was unlawful. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which BREE has its headquarters.

The collection of this data takes place automatically when the website is accessed. The data is collected in part to ensure a flawless provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When visiting the website, the usage behavior can be statistically evaluated. This happens particularly with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your usage behavior is usually anonymous. The usage behavior cannot be traced back. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools.

SSL or TLS encryption

Diese Webseite nutzt aus Sicherheitsgründen und zum Schutz der Übertragung vertraulicher Inhalte, wie zum Beispiel Anfragen über das Kontaktformular, eine SSL-bzw. TLS-Verschlüsselung. Eine verschlüsselte Verbindung erkennen Sie daran, dass der Browser als “https://” angezeigt wird und an dem Schloss-Symbol in Ihrer Browserzeile. Wenn die SSL- bzw. TLS-Verschlüsselung aktiviert ist, können die Daten, die Sie an uns übermitteln, nicht von Dritten mitgelesen werden.

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests via the contact form, this website uses an SSL or rahter TLS encryption. An encrypted connection is indicated by the browser being displayed as "https: //" and by the lock icon in your browser bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are not harmful and do not contain viruses. They subserve to make the website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser.

Server log files / collecting data when visiting the website

Der Provider der Seiten erhebt und speichert automatisch Informationen in so genannten Server-Log Files, die Ihr Browser automatisch übermittelt. Dies sind beispielsweise Browsertyp / Browserversion, verwendetes Betriebssystem, Referrer URL, Hostname des zugreifenden Rechners und Uhrzeit der Serveranfrage.

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are, for example, browser type / browser version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer and time of server request.

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. These data will not be combined with data from other sources. BREE reserves the right to review this data retrospectively if concrete evidence of illegal use becomes available.

Processing of data (customer and contract data) and data in the online shop

BREE collects, processes and uses personal data only as they are necessary for the establishment, content or alteration of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. b EU DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the contract or termination of the business relationship, if no consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU GDPR is available. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Personal data are only transmitted to third parties if this is necessary in the context of the contract, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or to the bank responsible for processing the payment. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. A transfer of your data to third parties without explicit consent, such as for advertising purposes, does not occur.

Data are generally deleted no later than 13 months after collection.

Data may be stored for longer if and for as long as necessary to comply with statutory regulations or to prosecute a concrete case of fraud.

Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google + button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used by all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name that you have used to share content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or other information that can identify you.

Use of collected data: In addition to the uses mentioned above, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection policies.

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and DoubleClick. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This feature makes it possible to link target audiences for promotional marketing created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This allows advertising to be displayed based on your personal interests, identified based on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. your mobile phone), on other devices (such as a tablet or computer).

Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google Account for this purpose. That way, any device that signs in to your Google Account can use the same personalized promotional messaging.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.

You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account data is based solely on your consent, which you may give or withdraw from Google per art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. For data collection operations not merged into your Google Account (for example, because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merge), the collection of data is based on art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing anonymous user behavior for promotional purposes.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion-Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").

As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.

Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies are stored based on art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

For more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, see the Google Privacy Policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser.

YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Facebook Pixel

Our website measures conversions using visitor action pixels from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").

These allow the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they click on a Facebook ad to reach the provider's website. This allows an analysis of the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and their future optimization.

The data collected is anonymous to us as operators of this website and we cannot use it to draw any conclusions about our users' identities.

MailChimp for Sending Newsletters

This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. This service is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. If you provide data (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp's servers in the United States. This allows us to determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links you click on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to a specific recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to your interests.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.
