privacy protection policy


Data protection is of the utmost importance to biehl. parfumkunstwerke. biehl. parfumkunstwerke's websites may for the main part be used without submitting personal data. If a data subject wishes to avail themselves of specific services provided by our company via our website, this may necessitate the processing of personal data. If this is necessary, we will obtain the data subject's consent.
Personal data will always be processed subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with national data protection legislation. This data protection policy is designed to inform our users about the contents and purposes of the personal data that we collect and process. Furthermore, this data protection policy informs data subjects about the rights they are entitled to.

biehl. parfumkunstwerke has implemented an extensive number of technical and organizational measures in order to ensure that the data processed in connection with this website is reliably protected. However, there is always a possibility that data transmissions between your device and our server may feature security gaps, especially if third parties can access the device you are using to communicate with our server.

1. Definition of terms

biehl. parfumkunstwerke's data protection policy is based on the provisions and definitions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection policy is designed to be easily readable and comprehensible for our visitors, clients and business partners. In order to ensure this, we would like to define the terms used beforehand:

1) Personal data
Personal data comprises all information relating to an identifiable natural person.

2) Data subject
A data subject is any identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by a controller.

3) Controller
The controller is the company that collects the data subject's personal data and determines the purposes and means of processing.

4) Processor
The processor is a natural person or company involved by the controller in the processing of personal data.

The recipient is a natural or legal person, or public authority, to whom the personal data are disclosed.

6) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person or public authority who processes personal data on behalf of the controller or processor.

Processing is any operation performed in connection with personal data. This ranges from the collection and storage to the restriction or erasure of personal data.

9. Forwarding data

biehl. parfumkunstwerke may issue instructions for your contact data to be forwarded on to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for internal purposes, which are to be ascribed to the controller.
Our contracts with all the relevant processors ensure that these service providers also comply with the provisions of the GDPR.

10. Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for processing personal data on our website is either our legitimate interest in acquiring you as a future customer, e.g. as a pre-contractual measure, informing you of our products and services, or to fulfil our contractual obligations towards you as the data subject, if an order has been placed that would necessitate the delivery of goods. Legal retention obligations or the obligation to provide statements to government authorities may, as a result, become a legal basis, in and of themselves. We will obtain your revocable consent for all other processing operations, e.g. newsletters.

11. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The storage of personal data is limited to the statutory retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data will be deleted, insofar as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
