3. processing of personal data

The use of your data is governed by the applicable legal provisions, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: DSGVO).

3.1 Orders in the webshop

Why and on what legal basis is data processed?

When you place an order in our online store, the data required to establish a contract and to process your order, i.e. first and last name, billing and, if applicable, delivery address, e-mail address and, if applicable, your account details or credit card number are processed (customer data). The data is processed for the purpose of assigning your order to your person, the delivery of the ordered goods, if necessary, the invoice dispatch, the payment processing and the clarification of possible legal claims. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 b) DSGVO. When purchasing e-books, for legal reasons we must apply the VAT of the country in which the download takes place. We therefore determine your IP address for country identification. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 c) DSGVO.

If you order magazines as student or preferential subscriptions, the proof you send us for this purpose will also be processed.

If you wish, you can create a customer account for future orders (registration). In doing so, your customer data will be stored for use also for future orders in our online store, so that you do not have to enter them again. For registration, it is also necessary to provide a user ID and password (access data) so that only you can log into your customer account. We may use the data provided by you during registration in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 b) DSGVO, insofar as this is necessary for the establishment or performance of a contract. Furthermore, we may use the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO, as we would like to simplify your future orders.

Furthermore, we may use data that you have voluntarily provided to us when placing an order or registering in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a) and, if applicable, also f) DSGVO, provided that you have consented to this processing. This is, for example, your phone number or the reason for your order. This voluntary information is processed in order to contact you more quickly in the event of delivery difficulties and for internal market research purposes. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 a) and, if applicable, f) DSGVO. We have an interest in knowing the reason for your order for market research purposes.

Will data be shared?

For the following purposes, we also transfer the data, at least in part, to the following processors and other recipients:

  • Publisher Deliveries: This company handles delivery, invoicing and fulfillment of tax retention obligations on our behalf.
  • Payment service providers such as credit card companies (e.g. telecash, stripe, VISA, Mastercard): When ordering books, the invoice amount and a pseudonymous transaction code are transmitted for payment processing when paying by credit card.
  • PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. & Cie, S.C.A. (22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg): If you have chosen the PayPal payment method, the invoice amount and a pseudonymous transaction code are transmitted to PayPal for payment processing.
  • TrustedShops GmbH (Subbelrather Straße 15c, D-50823 Cologne, Germany): Your e-mail address and the invoice amount are passed on to TrustedShops if you have opted for an optional so-called “Buyer Protection” and clicked on “Buyer Protection” in the TrustedShops banner.
  • Collection agencies: A transfer is only made for the collection of receivables from customers who do not pay their purchase price.
  • Further processors or recipients see below under 3.6.1

Do I have to provide my data?

The provision of your data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, for a contract with us at least the indication of your name, address and e-mail address is required. Otherwise, we would not be able to send the order and invoice to your address and send you an order confirmation by e-mail. For all payment methods with the exception of a purchase on account, it is necessary to provide payment information, otherwise we would not be able to charge your account or credit card with the agreed price. All other information and registration are not required for a contract with us. However, providing us with your phone number will make it easier for us to contact you quickly in case of delivery problems.

When will my data be deleted at the latest?

We may store data until the final settlement of the respective contract. In the case of purchase contracts, we may store data until receipt of payment and beyond that for up to two years after delivery. If the storage is necessary to fulfill our legal obligations according to Art. 6 para. 1 c) DSGVO in conjunction with the German Commercial Code or the German Fiscal Code, we are entitled to store data until the expiry of the retention periods specified therein. The data provided as part of a registration will be deleted either at your request or at the latest 4 years after the last order, unless we are entitled to store it longer for the reasons stated above.

What are the sources of my data?

As a rule, you provide us with your data yourself. We also receive the following data from the following sources: Payment service provider (payment confirmation, anonymized transaction number, invoice amount as well as the name, e-mail address and postal address stored with the payment service provider).

3.2 Advertising

We also use your data to send advertising or e-mail advertising for our products, provided you have been our customer for the last two years, you have given us your postal address or e-mail address and you have not objected to the advertising (for your right to object, see 4.4). The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. We have a legitimate economic interest in sending our existing customers advertising by mail or e-mail.

3.3 Contacting

If and to the extent that you contact us by e-mail, letter, telephone, fax or via social media platforms and wish to request information about your orders, it may be necessary for you to provide us with data such as name, address, year of birth, order or invoice number in order to process your request. This data will only be used to verify your identity and process your request. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) GDPR.

They remain stored with us for the purpose of processing the application procedure for a maximum period of 6 months after completion of the application procedure and are then deleted. Processing beyond this is permitted for the purpose of establishing and implementing an employment relationship in accordance with the above-mentioned legal basis, provided you take up employment with us after completing the application process.

The provision of your personal data is neither contractually nor legally required. However, an online application necessarily requires the transmission and storage of data. If you provide us with unsolicited special categories of data that include information about your origin, political, religious or ideological beliefs, trade union membership, health or sex life, you also consent to the processing of this data. We ask that you do not provide such data to us.

3.5 Newsletter

If you have ordered a newsletter from the publisher, we process your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you our newsletter on a regular basis. In addition, it is necessary that you name at least one of the areas of interest that you would like to be informed about when ordering the newsletter. After ordering the newsletter, you will receive an email from us with a link to verify your email address.

The legal basis for the dispatch is your consent, which you gave us when ordering the newsletter (Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO). The provision of your data is not mandatory. However, in order to send a newsletter, it is necessary to provide your e-mail address. The provision of your name, title and place of residence are voluntary and serve the purpose that we can address you personally and refer you to events near your place of residence. Your data, which you have provided in the context of ordering the newsletter, will be deleted as soon as you have unsubscribed from the newsletter.
