  • for internal controls;
  • to develop new products;

2.1.1 Log files

When you visit our website www.oelz.com log files are stored as standard for technical purposes. These datasets include the following data: Date, time, name of page accessed, IP address, the website from which you are visiting us (referrer URL), type of browser and operating system. We also automatically collect and store information on the pages you visit. Such data is stored and analysed anonymously. Anonymous means that we cannot attribute the data to an identified or identifiable natural person at all or without unreasonable efforts in time, cost and capabilities.

2.1.2. Sharing data with third parties

Your personal data will be shared with third parties only insofar as it is lawful (to implement or comply with a statutory duty, a law or compulsory procedure, to detect and prevent security threats, fraud or other malicious activities, to protect or assert our rights and our property, or to protect the personal safety of our employees and third parties), for marketing purposes, or if you have given prior consent.

It may be the case that third-party content is embedded in our website, e.g. Google Maps, YouTube videos, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. The providers of such content always require access to the user's IP address. Without an IP address, it is not possible to send the content to the user's browser. An IP address is therefore necessary for such content to be displayed. We make every effort to ensure we only use content from providers that use your IP address solely to deliver content. We have, however, no control over whether third parties store your IP address for statistical purposes, for example. We shall inform you should we become aware of such practices.

Some of your personal data will be stored by third-parties in the United States such as Google, Facebook etc. and disclosed by them for certain purposes. We advise you to read through their respective privacy policies to discover the reasons why your data may be disclosed.

2.2 Use of your data for marketing purposes

You can, of course, withdraw from such e-mails by clicking the unsubscribe link provided in every newsletter or by notifying us in writing using the contact details (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) listed in item 10.

Cookies are text files that are saved locally on your computer and which can be sent back to the web server if you return to the website again.

We mainly distinguish between two types of cookies; session cookies which are deleted as soon as your close your browser and temporary/permanent cookies which are saved for a longer period or for an unlimited duration on your data storage media. By storing such data, we can design our website and promotions to suit you and make it easier for you to use our website, e.g. by saving some of your information so that you do not have to repeatedly enter it into our system.

These temporary or, as the case may be, permanent cookies (retention: 1 month to 10 years) are stored on your hard disk and are automatically deleted once the specified period has elapsed. These cookies serve, in particular, to make our site more user-friendly, effective and secure.

3.4. Re-targeting

Our webpages use re-targeting technologies in certain circumstances. The use of such technologies enables us to offer you more interesting services online. This technique makes it possible to target our advertising on our partners' websites to Internet users that have already shown an interest in our shop and products. Such advertising material can be integrated into partner websites using cookie technology and analysis of previous user behaviour. This type of advertising uses only pseudoanonymous data. Cookies are used to collect, store and use your usage data. Furthermore, your data continues to be stored in cookies after the browser session has ended and can, for example, be recalled on future visits to the websites.

3.5. How can you prevent cookies from being saved?
