  1. Visiting our website

When you access our website, www.slow-watches.com, information will automatically be sent from the browser used on your device to the servers for our website (servers of Mittwald CM Service GmbH & Co. KG, Königsberger Straße 4-6, 32339 Espelkamp, Germany). This information is temporarily stored in what is called a log file. The following information will be collected in this process without any action on your part, and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • date and time of access,
  • name and URL of the file accessed,
  • website from which it is accessed (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer and the name of your access provider.

We process the specified data for the following purposes:

  • ensuring that you can connect to the website smoothly,
  • ensuring that use of our website is convenient,
  • evaluating system security and stability and
  • other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is art. 6(1)(1) lit. f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest in collecting data is implied in the purposes listed above. We will never use the data collected for the purpose of inferring your identity.

 

  1. Ordering and payment

We collect, store and use the data that accumulates about your identity during the order process solely for proper execution of the contract. Unless required for execution or implementation of the contract (e.g. for shipping with DHL) or obligated to do so by law, we will not share data with any third parties. If data must be stored beyond execution of the contract on legal grounds (e.g. retention periods for invoices and payment receipts), it will be stored and locked for the normal course of business. Otherwise, data will be deleted immediately. Transmission of data related to your identity that accumulates during the order process will be protected by SSL encryption, a method that is used by many banks in online banking, for example, and is generally accepted as secure. To allow you to pay securely online by credit card, we use the payment services of HUELLEMANN & STRAUSS ONLINESERVICES S.à.r.l., 1, Place du Marché, 6755 Grevenmacher, Luxemburg. The data you enter for online payment will be collected directly by this service and only used to execute the payment order. We do not collect or store this data ourselves.

The legal basis for data processing is art. 6(1)(1) lit. b of the GDPR.

 

3. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are tiny text files sent and stored on your computer. These text files are recognized by our shop-system to facilitate your order (shopping cart function, auto-completion of input) and to evaluate the function of our website (see below figure 4.). We do not allocate this cookie information to your individual-related data. Some cookies remain on your computer after the visit of our website for reasons of auto-completion of your input in case of a future visit of our website. You can block and delete also these cookies from your computer by adjustment of the settings of your browser (e.g. setting path of internet explorer: Tools/Internet Options/Privacy/Settings resp. Tools/Internet Options/General).

4. Google-Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics that is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files sent and stored on your computer to analyze the use of this website by your visit. The information of your visit gained by the cookies is transmitted to and stored at severs of Google in the USA. According to our settings the last digits of the IP-address allocated to your computer within the European Union or associated countries of the European Economic Area are automatically erased before transmission. Only in exceptional cases this alteration of the IP-address takes place after its transmission to Google in the USA. On behalf of us Google will use the information of your visit for the purpose of evaluating the use and functionality of this website, further data on visits of this website and to provide other services for us with regard to this website. The IP-address allocated to your computer at the time of your visit is not allocated to individual-related data of yours. You can block and delete cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website (i.g. the shopping cart function). Furthermore you can prevent the application of Google Analytics with effect for the future by downloading and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Addon for your current web browser at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en . For further information on Google Analytics and the data policy of Google visit http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/ . We hereby point out that we already at this stage activated the setting of Google Analytics to alter the IP-addresses and thus secure their anonymization in the moment of collection (so called IP-Masking).
