Processing and use as well as obtaining consent) of personal data within our online offer and the associated websites, functions and content (hereinafter jointly referred to as “online offer” or “website”). The data protection declaration applies regardless of the domains, systems, platforms and devices used (e.g. desktop or mobile) on which the online offer is run. The provider of the online offer and the body responsible for data protection is Recoplast AG, owner: Philippe Becsey, Güterstrasse 25, 5014 Gretzenbach (hereinafter referred to as “provider”, “we” or “us”).

2. Basic information on data processing


We process personal data of users only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations in accordance with the requirements of data economy and data avoidance. This means that user data will only be processed if there is legal permission, in particular if the data is required to provide our contractual services and online services, or is required by law, or if consent has been given. We take organizational, contractual and technical security measures according to the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of the data protection laws are observed and to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons protection. If content, tools or other means from other providers (hereinafter jointly referred to as "third-party providers") are used within the scope of this data protection declaration and their registered office is abroad, it can be assumed that data will be transferred to the countries in which the third-party providers are domiciled . Data is transferred to third countries either on the basis of legal permission, user consent or special contractual clauses that guarantee the legally required security of the data.


3. Processing of personal data


In addition to the use expressly mentioned in this data protection declaration, the personal data is processed for the following purposes on the basis of legal permissions or user consent:
– The provision, execution, maintenance, optimization and security of our services, service and user services;
– Ensuring effective customer service and technical support.

We only transmit user data to third parties if this is necessary for billing purposes (e.g. to a payment service provider) or for other purposes if these are necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations to users (e.g. address notification to suppliers).

When contacting us (via contact form or email), the information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Personal data will be deleted if they have fulfilled their purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any storage requirements.

The access data includes the name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider .

We only use the log data without assignment to the person of the user or other profiling in accordance with the legal provisions for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our online offer. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on specific indications.


5. Cookies & range measurement


Cookies are pieces of information that are transmitted from our web server or web servers of third parties to the web browser of the user and stored there for later retrieval. Users are informed about the use of cookies in the context of pseudonymous range measurement in the context of this data protection declaration.

If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in their browser's system settings.

6.Google Analytics


We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and internet usage. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; In addition, users can prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https:// tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de .

7. Newsletters


With the following information we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and the procedures described.

Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described when registering for the newsletter, they are decisive for the consent of the user. Our newsletter also contains the following information: our products, offers, promotions and our company.

Double opt-in and logging: Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else's e-mail address. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.

Dispatch service provider: The newsletter is dispatched using "" (hereinafter referred to as "dispatch service provider"). You can view the data protection regulations of the shipping service provider here: .

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of the shipping service provider. The shipping service provider uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, the shipping service provider can, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to pass them on to third parties.

Registration data: In order to register for the newsletter, it is sufficient if you enter your e-mail address.

Statistical survey and analysis - The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of the shipping service provider when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor that of the shipping service provider to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Termination/Revocation – You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to its dispatch by the dispatch service provider and the statistical analyzes expire. Unfortunately, a separate revocation of the dispatch by the dispatch service provider or the statistical evaluation is not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.


8. Integration of Third-Party Services and Content


It may happen that content or services from third-party providers, such as city maps or fonts from other websites, are integrated within our online offer. The integration of content from third-party providers always presupposes that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the user, since without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. Furthermore, the providers of the third-party content can set their own cookies and process the data of the users for their own purposes. User profiles can be created from the processed data. We will use this content as data-sparingly and data-avoiding as possible and choose reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.

The following presentation offers an overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, possibilities to object (so-called opt-out):

– External fonts from Google, Inc., https://www.google.com/fonts (“Google Fonts”). The Google Fonts are integrated by calling up a server at Google (usually in the USA). Data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ , opt-out: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/ .

- Maps provided by the "Google Maps" service provided by the third-party provider Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ , opt-out: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/ .

Users have the right to request information free of charge about the personal data that we have stored about them.
In addition, users have the right to correct incorrect data, revoke consent, block and delete their personal data, and the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if they suspect unlawful data processing.

The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory storage requirements.


10. Changes to the Privacy Policy


We reserve the right to change the data protection declaration in order to adapt it to changed legal situations or to changes in the service and data processing. However, this only applies with regard to declarations on data processing. If user consent is required or parts of the data protection declaration contain provisions of the contractual relationship with the user, the changes will only be made with the consent of the user.
Users are asked to inform themselves regularly about the content of the data protection declaration.
