We maintain state-of-the-art technical measures which ensure data security. This serves to protect your personal data against dangers arising during data transmissions and against the danger of third parties gaining knowledge about you. These are adapted accordingly to the newest technologies.

§ 4 – Collection of Personal Data for Informational Use

(1) In the case of merely informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not log in, register or otherwise provide us with information via the website, we will not collect any personal data, except for the data transmitted by your browser, to enable you to use the web site. These data are:

– IP Address

– Date and time of the visit

– Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

– Content of the request (which page)

– Access status/HTTP status code

– The amount of data transferred

– Website from which the visit originated

– Browser

– Operating system and its interface

– Language and version of the browser software.

(2) Furthermore, when using the website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you are using and they provide certain information to the party that creates the cookie (in this case us). Cookies cannot run programmes or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make the website generally more user-friendly and effective. [We use cookies to identify you for follow-up visits if you have an account with us. Otherwise you would have to log in again for each visit.]

a) This website uses cookies in the following ways:

– Transient cookies (temporary use)

– Persistent cookies (limited time use)

– [Third-party cookies [from third-party providers)]

– [Flash Cookies (permanent use)].

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. Most importantly, this includes the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, via which different requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This will allow your computer to be recognised when you return to the site. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or when you close the browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a given duration, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies via your browser’s security settings at any time.

d) You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and, for example, reject the acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would point out that you may not be able to use all the features of the website.

e) The Flash cookies used are not detected by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. These store the necessary data regardless of the browser used and do not have an automatic expiration date. If you do not wish to process the flash cookies, you must install an add-on, e.g. Better Privacy for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or Adobe Flash killer cookie for Google Chrome.]

(3) This stored information will be stored separately from any further data provided to us. The cookie data are not linked with any of your other data.

§5 – Use of Social Media Plug-Ins

1. Use of Social Media Plug-Ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Google+, Xing Twitter, T3N, LinkedIn, Flattr and Instagram. We use the so-called 2-click solution. This means that if you visit our site, no personal data will initially be passed on to the providers of these plug-ins. The provider of the plug-in can be identified by the marking on the greyed-out box, by means of the initial letter. Only when you click on one of the plug-ins will personal data be transmitted: by activating the plug-in, data is automatically transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with US providers, this will be in the USA). We do not have any influence over the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, or the purposes and the storage periods thereof. Since the plug-in provider largely carries out the data collection using cookies, we recommend that, before clicking on the greyed-out box, you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings.

(2) If you activate a plug-in, the plug-in provider is informed that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data referred to in §4 of this statement are transmitted. With respect to this, Facebook and Xing state that, within Germany, only an anonymised IP is collected. This is done regardless of whether you have an account with this plug-in provider or whether you are logged in. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, this data will be assigned directly to your account. If you press the activate button and e.g. link to the page, the plug-in provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly disclose it to your contacts. If you do not want to associate your profile with the plug-in provider, you must log out before activating the button.

(3) The plug-in provider stores these data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or tailor-made website design. This kind of data evaluation is carried out in particular (and also for non-logged-in users) for the presentation of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of these user profiles. You must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right.

(4) For further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing thereof by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of said providers, which are given below. There you will also find further information about your related rights and settings options for protecting your privacy.

2. Integration of Third-Party Services

(1) We have incorporated YouTube videos into our website. These are stored on http://www.youtube.com and are directly playable from our website. These are all included in the Advanced Privacy mode, which means that no data about you as a user will be transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos.7 Only when you play the videos will the data referred to in section 2 be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

On this website, we have included [further] content from the following third-party providers: Google Maps, RSS feeds, graphics.

(2) When you visit the website, the third party will be informed that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data referred to in §4 of this statement will be transmitted. This is done regardless of whether the third party provides a user account that you are logged in to, and is also done if you do not have such a user account. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, this data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want to associate with your profile with the plug-in provider, you must log out before activating the button.

(3) The plug-in provider stores these data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailor-made website design. This kind of data evaluation is carried out (also for non-logged-in users) for the provision of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of these user profiles. You must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right.

(4) For further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers. There you will also find further information regarding your related rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.

§6 – Newsletter

1. Newsletter

(1) We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for registration to our newsletter. This means that after entering your email address, we will send a confirmation email to the specified email address asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm within 24 hours, your registration will be automatically cancelled. If you confirm that you requested to receive the newsletter, we save your email address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. The storage is solely so that we can send you the newsletter. Furthermore, we store your IP addresses and the registration and confirmation times, to prevent misuse of your personal data.

(2) The only information absolutely required for us to send you the newsletter is your email address. [Providing additional, separately marked information is voluntary and is used solely for personalisation of the newsletter. These data will also be deleted completely upon cancellation.]4

(3) You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time. You can let us know that you have revoked your consent by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email, [via this form on the website,] by emailing [newsletter@company.de] or by sending a message to the contact details stated in the imprint.5 The data you enter will not be disclosed to third parties.

(4) The consent given by you is worded as follows:

“I hereby state my wish – which can be revoked at end time – to receive advertising about in-house [similar] products and services from Copenhagen Footwear , and I wish to receive this information via the following channels:

[Checkbox] Email

[Check box with default tick] Post (If you don’t want this, please clear checkbox)

[Checkbox] Phone

[Checkbox] Fax

My contact details are: [entry boxes for corresponding data]

[Register here]

You are free to decide whether you wish to provide this information. Your consent to the sending of the newsletter can be revoked at any time (by emailing [newsletter@example.com] or the contact address specified in the imprint). It is sent according to our privacy policy [link].”

(5) We wish to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons, also called tracking pixels. These are one-pixel image files that link to our website and enable us to evaluate your user behaviour. This is done by collecting the data mentioned in §4, as well as via web beacons, which are assigned to your email address and linked to your own ID. [OPTIONAL: Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID.] [EITHER:] The data collected are always pseudonymised, so the IDs are not linked to your other personal data. This means they cannot be linked to you. [OR:] With the data gained in this way, we create a user profile to provide you with a newsletter tailored to your interests. We record data on when you read our newsletters, which of the contained links you click on, and we thus deduce your personal interests. We link this data with your activities on our website. [END Alternative] The information collected in this way is stored by the newsletter provider on its server in [Germany]. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by contacting us via the contact channels mentioned in paragraph (3). [OPTIONAL: Such tracking is not possible if you have disabled the display of images in your email program by default. In this case, however, the newsletter will not be fully displayed, and you may not be able to use all its features. If you display the images manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place.]

§7 – Web Tracking

1. Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, for activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website usage and internet usage to the website operator.

(2) The IP address submitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google.

(3) You can prevent the storage of cookies by choosing the settings on your browser software accordingly; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to fully use all the features of this website.

(4) In addition, you may prevent Google collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Alternatively to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click this link: Deactivate Google Analytics, to prevent the collection by Google Analytics within this website in the future (the opt out only works in the browser and only for this domain). An opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again.

(5) This website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension. With this, IP addresses are processed in shortened form, which means that they cannot be tracked back to individual persons.
