Data privacy information and responsible authority with regards to data privacy

We would like to thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company. The protection of your personal data is important to us. We process your data in compliance with the applicable legal provisions for protection of personal data, in particular with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the country-specific implementation laws that are applicable to our company.

Our data privacy statement explains which personal data we gather from you through our website, what we use these for, when we delete them and how your data are given the best protection through security measures. In addition, we will advise you of the legal basis that allows us to process data in each case.
You will also be informed of your established legal rights in relation to the processing of these data.

Personal data are information that makes it possible to identify a natural person. This includes, in particular, names, dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses, as well as your IP address.

Data are anonymous if no personal connection to the user can be established.

The responsible authority in accordance with data protection law is:

CARAVITA GmbH
Hans-Wilhelm-Renkhoff-Strasse 2
97828 Marktheidenfeld

Please direct any questions, complaints or messages to the email address: datenschutz@caravita.eu

Your rights as a data subject

We would first like to take this opportunity to inform you of your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardised in articles 15 – 22 of the EU-GDPR. These include:

  • Right of access (Art. 15 EU-GDPR)
  • Right to erasure (Art. 17 EU-GDPR)
  • Right to rectification (Art. 16 EU-GDPR)
  • Right to data portability (Art. 20 EU-GDPR)
  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 EU-GDPR)
  • Right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU-GDPR)

To assert these rights, please contact:

CARAVITA GmbH
Data Protection Officer
Hans-Wilhelm-Renkhoff-Straße 2
97828 Marktheidenfeld

The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company or would like to revoke granted consent. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority.

Right to object

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without needing to state any reasons. This also applies to any profiling, insofar as it is associated with direct advertising.

If you object to processing for the purposes of direct advertising we will no longer use your personal data for these purposes. Objection is free of charge and can be submitted in any form, preferably to:

CARAVITA GmbH
Data privacy
Hans-Wilhelm-Renkhoff-Strasse 2
97828 Marktheidenfeld
datenschutz@caravita.eu

In the event that we process your data in order to protect our legitimate interests, you can object to this processing at any time for reasons relating to your particular situation; this also applies to any profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

Data collection / Personal data

We generally do not require any personal data from you when you visit our website. You only transmit data to our web server when our website is accessed (out of technical necessity) via your internet browser. During the ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server, the following data are recorded:

  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Name of the internet service provider
  • Information about the website from which you are visiting us
  • Information about the webpages that you access on our site, as well as date and time of visit
  • Name of the requested file, whether file has been transmitted, for example, data volume transmitted
  • The IP address assigned by your internet service provider

For reasons of technical security, particularly for defending against attacks on our web servers, these data are stored by us according to art. 6, para. 1, point f of the EU-GDPR. After seven days at the latest the data are anonymised by shortening the IP address to the domain level. A connection to the individual user is not established. The data are also processed for statistical purposes only in their anonymised form.

Other data collection

The regulations of the EU-GDPR and all other applicable regulations from data protection law are observed when processing your personal data. The legal basis for data processing is derived in particular from art. 6 of the EU-GDPR.

We use your data for the initiation of business, to meet contractual and legal obligations, to execute the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to improve relations with customers, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent to data processing may also constitute a legal data protection permission instruction. Before you give consent, we shall clarify the purpose of the data processing and your right of revocation.

This is the case, if, for example, your consent is received (art. 6, para. 1, point a of the EU-GDPR), the data are required in order to fulfil a contract / pre-contractual measures (art. 6, para. 1, point b of the EU-GDPR), the data are required in order to fulfil a legal obligation (art. 6, para. 1, point c of the EU-GDPR) or the data are required in order to maintain justified interests of our company, insofar as your legitimate interests do not outweigh them (art. 6, para. 1, point f of the EU-GDPR).

The collected personal data will of course be treated with confidentiality. Only authorised persons in our company involved with technical, commercial, editorial or customer management support, have access to your data. We will forward your data to third parties only within the framework of the legal regulations or with corresponding consent, and we will not forward your data to third parties unless we are obliged to do so due to mandatory legal requirements.

If the consent also relates to processing particular categories of personal data, we will explicitly refer to these in the consent. Particular categories of personal data are processed only if this is required by legal specifications and if there is no reason to assume that this is outweighed by your legitimate interest to the exclusion of processing.

Contact form / Contact via email (legal basis art. 6, para. 1, point a, b of the EU-GDPR)

There is a contact form on our website that can be used to contact us electronically. If you write to us via the contact form, we will process the data you provide in the contact form in order to establish contact and answer your queries and requests. In this case, the principle of data minimisation and data avoidance is observed by requiring you to enter only the data that is strictly required in order for us to make contact with you. These include your email address and the message content itself. In addition, your IP address is processed out of technical necessity and for legal protection. All other data fields are voluntary and can be provided optionally (e.g. for a more individual answer to your queries).

If you contact us by email, we will process the personal data provided in the email only to respond to your enquiry. No further data is collected.

Newsletter (art. 6, para. 1, point a of the EU-GDPR)

CARAVITA GmbH is interested in maintaining its customer relationship with you and in providing you with information and offers about our products/services. We therefore process your data in order to provide you with appropriate information and offers by email.

CARAVITA uses a newsletter web bug. The collected data are saved in an anonymous format.

If you do not want these data to be saved, you can object at any time to the use of your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with direct advertising. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your data for this purpose.

The objection can be submitted without giving reason, free of charge and in any form and should preferably be sent to datenschutz@caravita.eu or by post to

CARAVITA GmbH

Advertising purposes for existing customers (art. 6, para. 1, point f of the EU-GDPR)

CARAVITA GmbH is interested in maintaining its customer relationship with you and in providing you with information and offers about our products/services. We therefore process your data in order to provide you with appropriate information and offers by email.

If you do not want these data to be saved, you can object at any time to the use of your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with direct advertising.

The objection can be submitted without giving reason, free of charge and in any form and should preferably be sent to datenschutz@caravita.eu.

Automated decision-making including profiling according to art. 22, para. 1 and 4 of the EU-GDPR

No automated procedures are used to, for example, learn more about your interests or your purchasing behaviour based on your personal data (known as profiling).

We do not use any fully automated processing procedures to bring about a decision.

Cookies (art. 6, para. 1, point f of the EU-GDPR or art. 6, para. 1, point a of the EU-GDPR with consent)

Our websites use what are known as cookies in multiple places. These serve to make our internet services more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files, which are stored on your computer and saved by your browser (locally on your hard drive).

These cookies allow us to analyse how users use our websites. This means that we can design the content of the websites to suit visitors' needs. Cookies also enable us to measure the efficacy of a certain advertisement and to reposition it depending on the thematic interests of the users, for example. Most of the cookies that we use are “session cookies”. These are automatically erased after your visit. Permanent cookies are automatically erased from your computer when their period of validity (six months as a general rule) has been reached or if you delete them yourself before the period of validity has elapsed.

Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. You can however generally also change your browser's settings if you would rather not share this information. You can then continue to use our website services without any restrictions.

We use cookies to make our internet services more user-friendly, effective and secure. In addition, we use cookies that allow us to analyse how users use our websites. This means that we can design the content to suit visitors' needs. Cookies also enable us to measure the efficacy of a certain advertisement and to reposition it depending on the thematic interests of the users, for example.

Cookies are saved on the user's computer and transmitted from there to our website. Therefore you, as a user, also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings of your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already in place can be erased at any time through the internet browser or other software programs. This is possible with all standard internet browsers.

Please note: If you deactivate the storing of cookies, some functions of our website may not be able to be used to their full extent in some circumstances.

Live Chat

This website uses Userlike, a live-chat software from Userlike UG (haftungsbeschränkt). Userlike uses “cookies”, which are text files saved on your computer and which allow a personal interaction with you in the form of a live chat on the website. The collected data are not used to personally identify the users of this website and are not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. To assert your rights (to information, rectification, erasure and export) from the GDPR, please contact the operator of this website.

Storage period / Criteria for determining the period

CARAVITA GmbH processes and saves your personal data only for the period of time required to achieve the respective purpose of processing or for as long as there is a legal retention period (particularly commercial and fiscal) or for as long as you have a user account with CARAVITA. Once the purpose is achieved, the retention period has elapsed or the user account with CARAVITA is deleted, the corresponding data are erased as a matter of routine.

Data transmission – Recipient / Recipient categories

  • Public authorities and institutions (such as the Tax Authority)
    Other company units in the company group
    Service providers in the context of order processing
    Delivery service providers, suppliers, payment services
    Specialist departments: Only authorised persons involved with technical, commercial, editorial or customer management support, are able to access the personal data.

Transmission to third countries / Intention of transmission to third countries

Data transmission in third countries (outside the European Union or European Economic Area) shall only take place if this is required to execute a legal obligation, is mandated by law or if you have given us your consent for this.

Secure transmission of your data

In order to best protect the data saved in our system against accidental or intentional tampering, loss, destruction or access by authorised persons, we use appropriate technical and organisational security measures. The security levels are continuously monitored in collaboration with security experts and adjusted to meet new security standards.

In addition, there is of course the option of using alternative methods of communication (e.g. post).

Use of online services by children

Children and people under the age of 16 are not permitted to transmit personal data or grant consent to us without the approval of their legal guardians (usually the parents). We would like to ask that parents and guardians actively participate in the online activities and interests of their children.

Links to other providers

Our website also contains clearly identifiable links to the websites of other companies.

If links are provided to websites from other providers, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore no responsibility and liability can be assumed for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the websites is responsible for their contents. The linked sites were checked for potential legal violations and identifiable legal infringements when the link was placed. No unlawful content was identified at the time that the link was placed. However, constant monitoring of the content of the linked sites is unreasonable without concrete indications of a legal infringement. If we are made aware of legal infringement, links of this kind will be removed immediately.

Data subject rights / Other questions?

Under the legal preconditions, you have the right to access your data free of charge, as well as a right to rectification, restriction of processing and erasure of your data, as long as there are no statutory retention periods which prevent this. In addition, you can object to data processing, assert your right to data portability or lodge a complaint against data processing with the supervisory authority responsibly for data privacy.

If you have given us consent for data processing, you may of course revoke it with effect for the future without providing any reasons.

If necessary, you can also contact our data protection officer, who will be happy to answer your questions: datenschutz@caravita.eu
