2. Collection, processing and use of personal data

2.1 Personal data

At Photocase we offer personalized rights of use (licenses) for photos. In order to transfer these rights of use to you, we require some of your personal data.

In addition, we would like to offer you personalized customer service and individual offers that are always tailored to your needs. For this purpose we collect personal data, communication data, contract data, licensing data, website behavior and advertising-related data. In doing so, we always comply with the storage and deletion periods prescribed by law.

Statistical data that we collect when you visit our web shop and that cannot be directly associated with you, do not fall under this law. These are for example statistics about which pages of our shop are particularly popular or how many users visit certain pages of the Photocase Shop.

2.2 Purpose and lawfulness of the data processing

The data processing is carried out according to the principles according to Art. 5 GDPR and the legality is always based on the conditions required by the legislator according to Art. 6 (1) GDPR.

We offer our customers personalized rights of use (licenses) for photos as well as an individual buying experience. To give you this, it is important to understand and analyze your personal needs. This also includes your customer history in the online shop, in e-mail traffic, on the phone or via a live chat. In particular, observation of customer interaction with Photocase products helps us to make your purchase as easy as possible. In addition, we conclude a purchase agreement with you during the ordering process. Both can only be achieved by collecting and processing your data, which we also need to fulfill our legal obligations. Basically, we stand for data minimization and process only data that is necessary for the purposes mentioned above. This data processing is transparent to you at all times. If the data processing goes beyond the above-mentioned purposes, we will ask for your consent in advance.

2.3 Collection, processing and use of your personal data

Privacy is very important to us. Therefore, we strictly adhere to the legal provisions of the EU Data Protection Directive and the German Telemedia Act when collecting, processing and using your personal data. We collect, store and process your data in order to process your purchase, including any subsequent warranties, for our services, the technical administration and our own marketing purposes. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or otherwise transmitted if this is necessary for the purpose of contract execution or billing or if you have previously consented to it’s transfer.

2.3.1 Data transfer for fulfillment of the contract

In order to fulfill the sales contract and process payments, we will pass on the necessary payment data to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and any payment service providers commissioned by us or to the payment service selected by you in the ordering process. Any consent given for the storage of your data during order processing can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future.

For your order we need your correct name, address and payment details. We need your e-mail address so that we can confirm the order and communicate with you. We also use these for your identification (customer login). You will also receive your order confirmation and invoice via your e-mail address.

A deletion of your personal data takes place, as long as this does not conflict with statutory retention requirements and if you have asserted a cancellation claim, if the data is no longer required to fulfill the purpose of the storage or if their storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons.

2.4 Use of your data for advertising purposes

In addition to processing your data to process your purchase at Photocase, we also use your information to communicate with you about your orders, specific products or marketing promotions, and to recommend products or services that may interest you. If we receive your e-mail address in connection with the sale of a good or service and you have not objected to this, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers for similar products, such as those already purchased, from our range by e-mail , You may object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at all times or for individual measures without incurring other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A short written message (e-mail, letter, etc.)  to the contact details referred to in point 1 is sufficient.

2.4.1 Use of data when registering for the e-mail newsletter

Our newsletter is a so-called “opt-in newsletter,” which means that we will only send you a newsletter by e-mail if you have explicitly confirmed to us that you want to receive it. In addition you can indicate your preference with a check mark during the registration or administration of your customer account. Should you later no longer wish to receive newsletters from us, you can cancel at any time, without any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A written message (e-mail, letter, etc.) to the contact details referred to in point 1 is sufficient. Of course every newsletter contains an unsubscribe link.

2.4.2 Use of data for product recommendations by e-mail and your right to object

As a customer of Photocase you receive regular product recommendations from us by mail. You will receive these product recommendations from us, regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter, if we have received your e-mail address in connection with the sale of a good or service and you have not explicitly objected to receiving them. We want to send you information about products from our offer in this way.

If you do not want to receive any product recommendations or a total of no more promotional messages from us, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A written message (e-mail, letter, etc.)  to the contact details referred to in point 1 is sufficient. Of course, every e-mail contains an unsubscribe link.

2.4.3 Individual advertising for you

Information that we receive from you helps us to constantly improve your shopping experience and to make it customer-friendly and individual.

We use existing information, such as email receipt and read receipt, computer and Internet connection information, operating system and platform, your order history, service history, date and time you visited the website, and products you viewed.

We use this information exclusively in a pseudonymised form. By analyzing and evaluating this information, we are able to improve our website, as well as to send you individual advertising. That means advertising that recommends products that might be of interest to you. Our goal is to make our advertising more useful and interesting to you. Therefore, the evaluation and analysis of the pseudonymized data that we have collected, helps us not to randomly send you advertisements. Rather, we send you advertising, such as newsletters, product recommendations, by e-mail or advertising by mail, which correspond to your areas of interest. In this respect, for example, we also compare which of our advertising emails you open to avoid unnecessary emails being sent to you.

If you do not want to receive personalized advertising, you can opt out at any time. A written message (e-mail, letter, etc.) to the contact details referred to in point 1 is sufficient.

2.4.4 Market and opinion research

We use your data for market and opinion research. This data is anonymized and is for statistical purposes only, and only used for Photocase. Your responses to surveys will not be shared or published to third parties. We do not store the answers from our surveys together with your e-mail address or other personal information. The use of data for market research and opinion polling can be denied at any time wholly or for certain measures, without incurring any fees other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A written message (e-mail, letter, etc.) to the contact details referred to in point 1 is sufficient. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every survey e-mail.

2.4.5 Use of data for postal advertising and your right of objection

In addition, we reserve the right to include your first and last name, mailing address and, as far as we have received from you, to save additional information relating to the contractual relationship, your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, branch or business name in lists and use for promotional purposes, for example to send interesting offers and information about our products by post.

In order to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. You can set up your browser so that you are informed about the placement of cookies and individually decide whether to confirm or deny the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general. Accepting cookies is not a requirement for visiting our websites. However, we point out that the use of the shopping cart function and the ordering of products is only possible if you allow us to set cookies or the functionality of our websites may be limited.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are stored in your data-medium (a hard drive for example) and that store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Basically, one distinguishes 2 different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and temporary / permanent cookies that are stored for a longer period or unlimited amount of time on your drive. This storage helps us to make our websites and our offers suitable for you and makes it easier for you to use our service, for example by saving certain input from you so that you do not have to repeat it all the time.

Which cookies does Photocase use?

Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from your hard drive after the end of the browser session (end of the session, hence session cookies). Session cookies are needed, for example, to offer you the shopping cart feature across multiple pages. In addition, we also use cookies that remain with you on the hard drive. On another visit, it is automatically recognized that you were already with us and what input and settings you prefer. These temporary or permanent cookies are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the given time. In particular, these cookies serve to make our service more user-friendly, effective and secure. For example, these files may allow you to see information that is specific to your interests displayed on the page. The sole purpose of these cookies is to tailor our offer to your needs and to make browsing with us as comfortable as possible.

What data is stored in the cookies?

The cookies used by Photocase do not store personal data. When the cookie is activated, it will be assigned an identification number. Based on the cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymous information, for example, which pages of our shop were visited, which products were viewed, etc.

What is Onsite Targeting?

On the Photocase websites, data are collected based on a cookie technology to optimize our advertising and the entire online offer. These data are not used to identify you personally, but serve only a pseudonymous evaluation of the use of the homepage. With this technology, we may present to you advertisements and / or special offers and services whose content is based on information obtained from the context of the clickstream analysis (for example, advertisements designed to only view nature photos in the last few days). Our goal is to make our online offer as attractive as possible for you and to present products, offers and services that suit your areas of interest.

Are there any third-party cookies (so-called third-party cookies)?

Photocase uses a number of partners who help make the website and website more interesting to you. Therefore, when visiting the websites and cookies from partner companies are stored on your hard drive. These are temporary / permanent cookies that automatically delete after the specified time. The cookies of our partner companies also contain no personal data. Only pseudonyms are collected under a user ID. For example, this may include information about which products you have viewed, whether something has been purchased, which products have been searched, etc. In doing so, some of our partners are also gathering information about the pages you visited before, or for which products For example, if to present products, offers and services that may fit your interests. These pseudonymous data will never be merged with your personal information.

How can I prevent the storage of cookies?

You can set up your browser so that storage of cookies is accepted only if you agree. If you just want to accept Photocase cookies but not the cookies of our service providers and affiliates, you can choose the setting in your browser to block "third-party cookies". Usually you will see in the menu bar of your web browser (usually under “Help”), how to reject new cookies and turn off cookies you may have already received. For shared computers that are set to accept cookies and Flash cookies, we encourage you to completely log out after the session ends.

6. Use of log files

Every time you access the pages of Photocase, usage data is transmitted through the respective Internet browser and stored in log files, so-called server log files. The datasets stored in this case contain the following data: date and time of the retrieval, name of the accessed page, IP address, referrer URL (original URL from which you came to the web pages), the amount of data transferred, and product and Version information of the browser you are using. The IP addresses of the users will be deleted or anonymized after the end of use. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the details of personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with a disproportionately large amount of time, cost and manpower. We evaluate these log file datasets anonymously in order to further improve our offer and the Photocase shop and to make it more user-friendly, to find and fix errors faster and to control server capacities. For example, it can be understood at what time the use of the Photocase-Shop is particularly popular and provide appropriate data volume to ensure you a quickest possible purchase. In addition, by analyzing the log files, we can identify and fix any errors in the Photocase Shop faster.
