Thank you for your interest in our homepage and our company. For external links to external content, we can assume no liability despite careful control of the content.

The protection of your personal data collected, processed and used during your visit to our homepage is an important concern for us. Your data will be protected within the framework of the legal regulations. Below you will find information about which data is collected during your visit to our homepage and how it is used:

Reference to the use of social plugins:

Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) from various social networks. This allows you to share content from our website with other people within social networks. You can recognize the plugins used by the respective logo of the associated social network (e.g. white “f” on a blue background for Facebook).
If you do not belong to any of the social networks whose plug-ins we use on our websites, these social networks cannot collect any data that could be assigned to you as an individual through your visit to our websites, as long as you do not register later with the respective social network.
As long as these plugins are not deactivated, your Internet browser automatically connects to the respective social network when you visit our websites, provided you are a member and logged in. The content of the plugin is transmitted from the respective social network directly to your Internet browser and integrated into the website through it, which means that your personal data transmitted through the respective social network is visible to you on our websites. Of course, the used plugins can be deactivated.
If you are logged into one of the social networks whose plugins are used when you visit our websites, the social network learns via the plugin that you have visited the pages and can assign this data to your user account. If, for example, you interact with the plugin by clicking on it, the corresponding information is immediately transmitted by your browser to the social network.
Even if you are not logged in, information about your visit to our website can be stored by setting a cookie through a plugin. This can lead to the fact that this information, if you later log in or register with the social network, makes your person (again) assignable through the social network.
If you do not want social networks to collect data about you via our website, you must log out of these networks before you visit our website and manually delete any cookies set before a later login.
For the purpose and scope of the collection, processing and use of personal data by the respective social network, your rights in this regard and the options you can use as a member of these social networks to change settings regarding your personal data, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective social network.

We use the plugins of the following social networks:

Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest

Privacy policy according to DSGVO:

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH. A use of the internet pages of Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services provided by our company via our website, it may become necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this privacy statement informs data subjects of their rights.

Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

  3. Cookies
    The websites of Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an internet browser and many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It consists of a character string by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A certain internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID. By using cookies the Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services, which would not be possible without the setting of cookies. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart by means of a cookie The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be fully used.
  4. Collection of general data and information
    The website of Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH collects a number of general data and information with every call of the website by a person concerned or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. When using this general data and information Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimise the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by Bioline Naturbewußte Mode Vertriebs GmbH on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
  5. Registration on our website

The controller may arrange for the personal data to be disclosed to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data solely for internal use attributable to the controller; registration on the controller’s website will also record the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the date and time of registration. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the clarification of committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of these data is necessary to protect the data controller. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.the registration of the data subject under voluntary disclosure of personal data serves the data controller to offer the data subject contents or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided at registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data controller’s files; the controller shall provide any data subject with information on the personal data relating to him/her at any time on request.

The newsletter of our company can basically only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered for the first time by a person concerned for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration.

Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as could be the case if there are changes to the newsletter offer or if technical conditions change. The personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time.

  7. Newsletter-Tracking

A tracking pixel is a thumbnail image embedded in e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns.

These personal data are not passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent submitted via the double opt-in procedure.

A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins is available at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data. Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time when he or she accesses our website; this occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

    The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook.

Within the scope of this technical procedure, Amazon obtains knowledge of personal data which is used by Amazon to trace the origin of orders received by Amazon and subsequently enable commission settlement. Among other things, Amazon can trace that the person concerned has clicked on a partner link on our website. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.

Google AdSense is based on an algorithm which selects the advertisements displayed on third party sites according to the content of the respective third party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.the operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.the purpose of the Google AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our website. Google AdSense sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time the data controller accesses one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purposes of online advertising and the billing of commissions. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission payments to be made. The person concerned can prevent cookies from being set by our website, as described above, at any time by changing the settings of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. Furthermore, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a thumbnail graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, which can be used for statistical evaluation. Alphabet Inc. can use the embedded pixel-code to identify whether and when an Internet page was opened by an affected person and which links were clicked on by the affected person. Google AdSense transfers personal data and information, including the IP address, to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America, where it is used to record and bill the advertisements displayed. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

  15. Privacy policy for the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
    The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.the operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.the data controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymised by Google if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website, and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website. Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements. Personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned, is stored by means of the cookie. Whenever a person visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website, as well as to object to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on from the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the Browser Add-On is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person who is part of their sphere of control, there is the possibility of reinstalling or reactivating the Browser Add-On.

What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person concerned who has reached our website via an AdWords ad has generated sales, i.e. whether he or she has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods. The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertising customers of Google AdWords receive information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned. Whenever you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

  22. Legal basis of the processing
    Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, such as processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d based on DS-GVO . Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f bade on DGSVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. We are allowed such processing operations in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
  23. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
    Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
  24. Duration for which the personal data are stored
    The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
  25. Legal or contractual provisions providing the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data
    We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. details of the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
  26. Existence of automated decision making
    As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
