Collection, processing and use of personal data

1. Wearable Life Science GmbH is the responsible party in terms of data protection acts.

Personal data (e.g., your name, street address, postal address and email) are collected, processed and stored for the following purposes:

  • Order details: For the acceptance, processing and fulfilment of your order. To the extent necessary, your details are forwarded to subcontractors, e.g. the deliverer of the merchandise. Payment details are collected in an encrypted mode and used exclusively for processing the corresponding transaction. Except for payment via purchase against invoice, Wearable Life Science GmbH does not receive any knowledge of or opportunity to access the banking and credit card details. Processing is handled exclusively via the relevant service provider, e.g. PayPal. All payment information relevant to data privacy protection (such as credit card number, expiration date and security number) is encrypted and transmitted directly to the respective payment service provider, and will not be saved by us. As a registered customer, you will be able to select the option „Save payment data“ during the order process. Thus, sensitive credit card data will be stored securely and easily via a so-called “alias” (token) in your customer account for later purchases. In “My customer account” under “My payment data” you can update as well as delete stored information. If you do not wish to store your credit card information in your account, you will be able to enter this information again with every order.
  • Registration details: Within the order process, you have the option of creating a customer account with us. Your address details, including email address and orders, are stored here. For your next order, all you need to do is provide your customer name and a password. The password is to be kept secret.
  • Required details: For ordering and registration, mandatory details are marked with an asterisk. If you provide additional details, these are additionally used for statistical purposes and for improving the Wearable Life Science GmbH online shop. If you have subscribed to the newsletter, the additional details can also be used to send you information on product offers that match your details.
  • Newsletter registration: Via your customer account or within the order process, you can subscribe to our newsletter. In this case, your email address, as well as your form of address and name (to the extent provided), are used when sending the newsletter.
  • Deletion of data: The data of the customer account remains stored until you cancel the account. The order data remain stored without a customer account until fulfilment. Then the data is deleted, unless there are statutory retention obligations. You have the opportunity to correct, disable or delete your personal data if the respective legal requirements are fulfilled. All data that is still required for the completion of outstanding tasks or for the enforcement of our rights and claims is exempt from deletion, as well as data that we are legally required to retain. In this case, data will be blocked from any other use.
  • Information: Upon request, Wearable Life Science GmbH will gladly provide free of charge information about data stored under your customer account.
  • Third parties: Customer data is only made available to third parties to the extent that Wearable Life Science GmbH has been authorised or required to do so according to data protection law, e.g. in case of a query by an investigative authority, in the course of order data processing or with prior consent of the customer.

Permanent cookies serve the purpose of making our offer more user-friendly and more effective.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

3. Use of social plugins

Our online shop uses social plugins of the following social networks:

  • operated by Facebook Ireland Limited Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland.
  • Twitter: operated by Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

(Collectively referred to below as “operators”). The plugins are designated by the logo of the relevant operator.

If you call up one of our websites containing such a plugin, your browser establishes a connection to the servers of the operator. The content of the plugin is transmitted by the operator directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through integration of the plugin, the operator receives the information that you have called up the relevant page of our website. If you have an account with the relevant operator and are logged in to this account, the operator can attribute your visit to your account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. pressing the “Like” button or making a comment) the relevant information is attributed to your operator account. In order to prevent the operator from collecting data on you via our website, log out of the operator’s service prior to visiting our website and delete any cookies that may be stored.

To learn more about the scope, nature and purpose of the data collection and further processing of the data by the operators, along with your related rights and options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of the particular operators on their websites. As the operators have their headquarters or parent company in the United States, this may lead to data being transmitted to the United States.

5. Conversion monitoring with the conversion tracking pixel from Facebook

Within our website, we rely on the “conversion tracking pixel” from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). It helps us track the actions of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook advertisement. Thus we can record the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this manner is anonymous to us, i.e. we cannot see the personal data of individual users. This data, however, is collected and processed by Facebook, about which we would like to inform you to the best of our knowledge. Facebook can link this data to your Facebook account and also use it for its own advertising purposes, according to Facebook’s data use directive . Thus Facebook and its partners can enable the placement of advertisements on and outside of Facebook. Furthermore, a cookie may be stored on your computer for this purpose. You can administer many online corporate advertisements via the American site or the EU site and thus revoke the tracking.
