Data protection notice

The following gives you an overview of how, to what extent and for what purpose personal data is collected and processed in using our website www.starmix.de (“website”).
We attach great importance to data protection. Collection and processing of your personal data is in compliance with the prevailing data protection regulations, specifically the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). By using our website you agree to the collection, use and transmission of your data in accordance with this data protection notice.

Controller
The controller for collection, processing and use of your personal data within the meaning of the GDPR is Electrostar GmbH, Stuttgarter Str. 36, D-73262 Reichenbach (“Electrostar”, “we” “us/our”).
If you want to object to the collection, processing or use of data by us in accordance with the data protection provisions generally or for individual measures, you can direct your objection to the above controller. You may save and print out this data protection notice at any time.
 

Data collection and use

The starmix website can be used without entering any personal data. The following access data is stored solely for the purpose of improving the usability of the website and the products offered: name of the accessed pages, the browser used, the operating system, the ISP and requested domain, date and time of access, search machine used, names of downloaded files and your IP address. Personal data is used exclusively for occasional advertising purposes if you make it available for us explicitly and voluntarily, for example in the context of contact for enquiries, registration, subscription to a newsletter. How Electrostar uses the personal data you provided depends on the department.
- Personal data entered in contact forms is stored to transfer it to the corresponding department or contact and deal with your concerns. Data entered in contact forms is not used for other purposes, and specifically not for advertising purposes.
- We need your email address for orders of the Electrostar Newsletter. The date and time of subscription are also stored, together with the agreement to data protection provisions and e-mail verification. This data is stored solely for the purpose of sending out the Newsletter. You can unsubscribe to the Newsletter at any time by sending an e-mail to newsletterstarmix.de or clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link on the Newsletter page on our website. Your data is then erased from our system. 
- For a competition Electrostar stores the data specified in the conditions as necessary for running the competition e.g. name, address, e-mail address). If you explicitly and voluntarily agree in the context of the competition to the use of your data for other purposes, we use your data for the agreed purpose, for example receiving the Newsletter. If your data was provided solely for the purpose of the competition, it is erased after the end of the competition and not passed to third parties.

In principle, unless otherwise specifically stated we only store your personal data for as long as needed to achieve the purpose. 
Data is only forwarded to third parties without your explicit agreement if your enquiry or issue makes forwarding to third parties unavoidable or prevailing regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany make it necessary.
If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the course of performing contracts (for example, logistics service providers) they only receive personal data to the extent that transmission is required for the relevant service. If we outsource certain parts of data processing to a third party (“processor”) we commit processors contractually to using personal data only in compliance with the requirements of data protection legislation and to ensure protection of the rights of the affected persons.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion-Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

As part of Google AdWords we use so-called conversion tracking. If you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is used for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files which the browser on the user’s computer stores. These cookies lose validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of users. If the user visits certain pages on this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and been forwarded to this page.

Each Google AdWords customer gets a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and been forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information which can be used to identify users personally. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in your Internet browser through user preferences. You are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour to optimise both their web offer and their advertising.

For more information on Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking, see Google’s data protection policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can set your browser to notify you of cookie storage and allow cookies only on an individual basis, block acceptance of cookies for specific cases or generally, and activate automatic deletion of cookies on closing the browser. Deactivation of cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Data security 
We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of prevailing data protection law and technological possibilities. We use encryption in transferring your personal data. This applies to both your orders and customer login. We use the SSL (Security Socket Layer), but we point out that online data transfer (for example during e-mail traffic) can show security leaks. Complete protection of data against third-party access is not possible. To secure your data we maintain technical and organisational security measures which we are constantly upgrading to the state of the art. We further cannot guarantee that our services will be available at specific times; disruptions, interruptions or outages cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are regularly carefully backed up.
 

Automated decision-making 
There is no automated decision-making based on the personal data collected.
