Thank you for your interest in our website, http://www.sotooutdoors.eu (hereafter referred to as “Website”). The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following text, we will inform you about how we handle your data.
The website is operated by BrandOutdoor GmbH (from here on referred to as “BrandOutdoor” or “We” or “Us”, see imprint for contact information).
Collection, processing and use of your data
You can visit our websites without providing any personal data. We only store usage data in our server log files, such as the name of the requested file, date and time of retrieval, the amount of data transferred and the IP address assigned to you by your Internet provider. This data is evaluated exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of our website (e.g. to detect attacks) and to improve on what we can offer. This processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website and our internet presence.
If you send us an inquiry via the contact form, your details from the contact form, including the contact details you provided there, will be processed and used for the purpose of processing the inquiry. This data is not passed on to third parties. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. After your request has been fully processed, your data will be deleted. This is the case if the circumstances indicate that the matter or your request has been completely resolved and there are no legal retention periods to prevent deletion.
In order to make visiting our website attractive and efficient and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on this website. A “cookie” is a small packet of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browsing session, i.e. after you close your browser (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer or device and enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit (permanent cookies).
Cookies may be set by the website (“first-party cookies”) or by third parties, for example, by those who provide content on the website or those who provide analytic services (“third-party cookies”). These third parties can recognize you when you visit our website and also when you visit other certain websites.
Other tracking technologies work similarly to cookies and place a small amount of data on your devices to monitor your website activity and allow us to collect information about how you use our website and services.
Most internet browsers allow you to erase cookies from your computer’s hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored on your computer. Please follow the instructions of your browser. Please note that certain areas or functions of the website may not be accessible if your browser does not accept cookies.
Security of the data
All data is encrypted when transmitted over the Internet using an SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer). We secure our website and other systems through technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or disclosure of data by unauthorized persons.
Links to other sites
The use of videos (e.g. YouTube)
This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider YouTube. When the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider YouTube can use technologies to collect information about user behavior. According to YouTube, these technologies are used, among other purposes, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behavior.
Integration of Google Maps
On this website we offer the use of Google Maps. This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and to enable you to conveniently use the map function.
By visiting the website, Google receives the information, among other things, that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data can be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be assigned to your profile on Google, you must log out before using the “SOTO dealer” page. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of social networks about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact Google to exercise this right.
