Lighting EVER place great value on the protection and security of your data, regardless of whether you are a customer or visitor to our online presence. We therefore undertake to protect your private sphere and to handle your data confidentially. In this document, we are pleased to inform you of the specific personal data collected in relation to your visit to this website and the purposes for which it is used.
I. Responsible person
This website is operated by Lighting EVER LTD.
The responsible person has not appointed a data protection officer, because this is not necessary in order to comply with the statutory requirements.
However, inquiries about data protection and the processing of your personal data can be sent to the following email address, and we will handle them in accordance with the statutory provisions.
II. Data processing, Purpose of processing, Duration of storage
This section describes the data categories we use as well as the purposes we aim to achieve through use of the data. Information on the length of time for which various kinds of data are stored is provided where possible.
Every time this website is accessed, access data is saved in a log file known as the server log. The data record saved in this regard contains the following information: date and time of access, IP address, session ID, the website accessed, name of the website from which the website was accessed, and information about the browser used.
We only analyze these log files in the event of misuse of our website. We reserve the right to subsequently examine the log files of users against whom a concrete suspicion exists of having used our website illegally and/or in breach of contract. In general, it is not possible for us to associate this data with a specific person. If such association is possible, however, we only use such data in cases for which a corresponding legal basis exists (weighing of interests in the individual case).
When you log in to our website or online shop, we collect the contact data you provide (in particular, your name, salutation, telephone and fax number, email address, language of correspondence, department and online shop access data) and use it on the basis of the processing agreement on thissubject. Moreover, in our internal processes, you are assigned a customer number and one or more contact persons from our company. We use this data to make our online shop available and serve you insofar as you are a customer of, or interested in, our company. In most cases, such data is stored for six months after use of the online shop has ceased (the customer account is deleted).
If you place an order in the online shop, we collect additional information for this purpose, including a delivery address and other information necessary for order processing, which you provide. We store such data for up to six months after the customer relationship ends. Insofar as personal contact or order data is also used in our accounting processes, such data is stored until the end of prescribed periods on the basis of the statutory retention periods to which we are subject.
If you have provided corresponding consent to us as part of the registration process or at a later time, we will also use the data resulting from your use of the online shop and the website, such as the web pages you accessed, the length of time you stayed on individual web pages and the products you looked at, as well as your previous items of interest in order to optimize our customer service and provide you with customized information. This data is stored until you revoke consent to its use.
If you have agreed to receive a newsletter, we use your name and email address to deliver such a newsletter. This data is used for as long as you are subscribed to the respective newsletter.
You can revoke at any time any consent you have provided for processing of your personal data. You can send notice of revocation in writing or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
III. General principles for the processing of personal data
1. Without limitation, we comply with all statutory data protection regulations
The data protection directives of the European Union and the national laws derived from them apply to the storage, processing and use of personal data. The legal basis for processing the respective personal data is evident from the foregoing.
2. Personal data is not sold, given over, rented out or otherwise disclosed to third parties in any manner without your consent.
We will not make third parties aware of your personal data for advertising or marketing purposes or otherwise give it to third parties unless this is necessary in order to execute the performance owed to you or without your express permission. In some cases, personal data may certainly be made available to external service providers if they offer sufficient guarantees that data will be used legally and securely, and they contractually undertake to comply with the principles and statutory provisions described in this Data Protection Policy. Within the scope of corporate restructuring or mergers, we reserve the right to transfer personal data to other companies, provided they also undertake to comply with the principles of conduct described here and are domiciled either within the European Union or a third state with an appropriate level of data protection. If you decide to actively use the social networking functions offered in our online presence, personal data will be forwarded to the respective external social network providers. See Section 4, below, for detailed information on this topic. Furthermore, we reserve the right to forward personal data to third parties if we are compelled to do so by operation of law, judgment handed down by a court of competent jurisdiction or administrative order issued by the competent supervisory authority; or if, as a result of actions or omissions on your part, we are forced to have our rights, property and assets protected by the competent supervisory authorities or have said rights, etc. enforced on our behalf.
3. The data we collect is limited to necessary and expedient information.
When we collect personal data, we always explain to you the purposes for which we process the data. In individual cases, we collect personal data only to the extent necessary to achieve these purposes. If personal data is no longer required for our use, it is deleted.
