Upon request, we will provide you your data in a structured, common, and machine-readable format. If we are using your data based on your consent (for example when registering to our e-mail newsletter), you may revoke your consent at any time. From the time of the revocation, we will no longer use your data for these purposes. If we have a legitimate interest in processing your data, you may likewise express your objection to this, to us. In this case, we will stop processing your data unless we must continue to store it due to compelling reasons which override your interest in objecting, or unless the processing serves to pursue legal claims. If we process personal data for direct marketing, you may object to the processing of such data at any time, without submitting reasons. In this case we will no longer use the data for the purposes of direct marketing. Of course, you can always also contact the responsible supervisory authorities.

Erasure of data

If your data is no longer needed for the listed purposes, including billing, it will be deleted. Please note that for each deletion, the data will initially only be blocked and only completely deleted after a time delay to prevent accidental deletion or possible intentional damage. For technical reasons, data is duplicated in backup files or through service mirroring, if need be. Such copies are likewise, if need be, only deleted following a time delay due to technical reasons.

Use and forwarding of personal data

The personal data you provide will be used by us only for a specific purpose, for example, for technical administration of websites or fulfilling your requests and demands; i.e. generally to execute the contract we have concluded with you, or to answer your questions.

Information on the use of cookies

Scope of processing of personal data

We integrate and use cookies on various pages to enable specific website functions and to integrate external web services. “Cookies” are small text files that your browser can store on your device. These text files contain a unique character string that identifies the browser when you return to the website. The process of saving a cookie file is also called “setting a cookie”. Cookies can be set both by the website itself and by external web services.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest) or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent). 

As a general rule, in the case of cookies that are collected on the basis of a legitimate interest, our legitimate interest is to ensure the functionality of our website and the services integrated into it (technically necessary cookies). Cookies may also increase the user-friendliness and enable a more personalized presentation of the website. A legitimate interest also exists for cookies used for website security and therefore also for personal data security. With the aforementioned cookies, we take into consideration both your interests and ours.

Cookie technology allows us to analyze and track individual website visitors but only when the website visitor has consented to the use of cookies. Displaying individualized advertising is also possible only with your consent.

Purpose of data processing

Cookies are set by our website or external web services to maintain the site’s full functionality, to improve user-friendliness or to pursue, with your consent, the stated purpose. Cookie technology also allows us to identify individual visitors by using pseudonyms, e.g. individual or random IDs. We are then able to provide more personalized services. 

Duration of storage

The cookies listed below are stored in your browser until you delete them or on expiry of the storage duration. Session cookies are deleted when the session has expired.

Right of objection, revocation of consent and deletion

You can set your browser as you wish and generally prevent the setting of cookies. You can then opt on a case-by-case basis whether to allow cookies, generally accept them or reject them. Cookies can be used for various purposes, e.g. to recognize previous connections by your device to our website (permanent cookies) or to save the pages last viewed (session cookies). Any explicit consent from you to process your personal data can be revoked at any time. Please note that up until revocation, the legal validity of consent-based processing remains unaffected. You can revoke your cookie settings at any time.

Google Analytics

We use the tool Google Analytics from Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; for Europe: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).

Google Analytics works with text files which are stored on your device (so-called “cookies”), in order to collect information about your website use.

Google uses this information on our behalf to provide us with evaluations of website use, reports about activities on the website, and additional services.

The data the “cookies” collect about your website use is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA for analysis and stored there. This data will not be combined with other data about you which may be stored at Google.

We also use the masking function “anonymizeIP”. Before transmitting your IP address to the Google server in the USA, it is truncated within the EU. Transmission of an un-truncated IP address only occurs in rare cases; it is then shortened on the servers in the USA.

You can prevent this processing through the following measures:

It is possible to set your browser so that no “cookies” are saved. This can, however, mean that our website will not be fully functional.

It is also possible to prevent data collection using a browser add-on from Google. You can find the add-on here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Additional information about data protection at Google can be found here https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Google Adwords Remarketing

We use the Adwords Remarketing function from Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; for Europe: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).

Google Remarketing allows us to show you only the products which truly interest you, when you are visiting websites which belong to the Google Display Network (GND).

To that end, cookies are saved by your browser in order to recognize you when you visit GND websites again. Through analysis of your website use, you will then be shown advertisements for products which you have already viewed, or which you may be interested in.

To prevent the saving of cookies for remarketing, you can change your settings for personalized ads here  http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can proceed as instructed by the website of the NAI – Network Advertising Initiative  (http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp).

Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We use the Adwords conversion tracking function from Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; for Europe: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).
Google conversion tracking allows us to track what happens after a user accesses our advertisement. For example, to identify whether a product is purchased or if there is a subscription to our newsletter. By clicking on our Google ad, a cookie is saved on your device to enable this function. This will not create a personal reference.
To prevent cookies for conversion tracking from being saved, you can change the settings in your browser accordingly.
Additional information about conversion tracking can be found here https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722022?hl=en.

Personal data and its processing in detail - E-mail marketing (mailings)

In order to respond optimally to your needs and interests, your e-mail address is used for commercial purposes by the One Click Metal GmbH. We use the mailings to send you information about us and our offers.

If you want to receive mailings, we require a valid e-mail address and a confirmation that you are the owner of the e-mail address given and agree to receiving the mailings.

For long-term optimization of e-mail communication, we evaluate the usage behavior in statistically processed form (for example, link A was clicked by 60% of all mailing recipients), so it is not possible to track individual recipients.

You can adjust your subscription to mailings at any time or terminate it with immediate effect without giving reasons. To do this, click on the link “Personal Profile”, which is included at the end of each mailing. In your personal profile, you can cancel the subscription completely or adapt and complete the data you have given.
