2. Access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without providing details about yourself.
Each time that you access a website, the web server will automatically save a so-called server log file which documents this access and contains for example the name of the file requested, your IP address, the date and time of access, the quantity of data transferred and the provider making the request (access data).
These access data are used exclusively to ensure that the website operates smoothly and to improve our offering. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f of the GDPR, this enables us to safeguard our justified interest in ensuring that our offering is displayed correctly – an interest which prevails when the interests of all parties are taken into account.

3. Data collection and use for the processing of contracts and when opening a customer account
We collect personal data if you provide them when placing an order, if you contact us (e.g. via the contact form or e-mail) or if you provide them voluntarily when opening a customer account. Mandatory fields are mandatory because we require the data for processing contracts, processing your query or for opening a customer account. Without these data, we will not be able to complete your order and/or open a customer account or respond when you contact us. The relevant entry forms indicate what data are collected. We use the data that you provide for processing contracts and your queries in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b of the GDPR. Once we have finished processing the contract or deleted your customer account, access to your data for further processing will be restricted and your data will be deleted as soon as the retention periods required under fiscal and commercial law expire, unless you have explicitly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to make further use of your data in a manner which is permitted by law as set out in this data protection statement.

4. Data transfer
In order to allow performance of a contract in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b of the GDPR, we shall transfer your data to the shipping company enlisted if this is necessary in order to deliver ordered goods. Depending on which payment provider you choose during the order process, we shall pass on the payment details collected for this purpose to the credit institute enlisted to handle payment and possibly to the payment service provider enlisted by us or to the selected payment service. The selected payment service providers may collect some of these data themselves if you set up an account with them. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The data protection statement of the relevant payment service provider shall apply.
Personal data shall be transferred to this company only to the extent necessary to allow performance of the contract.

So-called social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from social networks are used on our website. In order to provide greater protection for your data when you visit our website, the plug-ins are incorporated into the site using the so-called “2-click solution”. This ensures that when you access a page on our website containing such plug-ins, a connection to the servers of the relevant social network will not be established straight away.

The content of the relevant plug-in will then be transferred by the plug-in provider straight to your browser and incorporated into the page. By incorporating the plug-ins, the providers are informed that your browser has accessed the relevant page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the relevant provider or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) will be transferred by your browser directly to a server of the relevant provider (possibly in the USA), where it is then saved. If you interact with the plug-ins, e.g. by clicking on the “Like” or the “Share” button, the relevant information will likewise be transferred directly to a server of the provider and saved there. The information will also be published on the social network and shown to your contacts there. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f of the GDPR, this enables us to safeguard our justified interest in ensuring that our offering is marketed in the optimum manner – an interest which prevails when the interests of all parties are taken into account.

Hamberger Flooring GmbH & Co. KG may extend or shorten the entry deadlines as it sees fit. No entitlements for contestants will arise as a result.
