In case a third party sponsor/promoter is involved in the process, the personal information so gathered may be shared or transferred to such sponsor/promoter.

Cookies - General information

We use so-called cookies on our website on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our interest in optimising our offers is to be regarded as legitimate in the sense of the aforementioned provision. Cookies are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you use our offers. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. Information is stored in the cookie that is related to the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies serves, on the one hand, to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website or that you have already logged in with your customer account. If you use our offer again at a later time, the cookie automatically recognises that you have already been to our website and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again. Furthermore, we also use cookies for the purpose of user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. These are automatically deleted after you leave our website.

If you already have a customer account and are logged in, the information stored in the cookies will be assigned to your customer account.

A general objection to the use of cookies used for online marketing purposes can be declared for a large number of services, especially in the case of tracking, via the US American site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by deactivating them in the browser settings. Please note that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our offers and to evaluate them for the purpose of optimising them for you, as well as to display information tailored specifically to you. These cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already been to our site when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser in such a way that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. You can also use the Network Advertising Initiative's collected opt-out option for this purpose. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that not all functions of our offers are available to you. The storage period of cookies depends on their purpose and is not the same for everyone.

In short, we also use cookies to make the use of the site better for you and for us.

 

Third Party Links

This Website may contain third party links through advertisements. All the dealings with such third parties are subject to the privacy policy and other terms and conditions set forth by that site. We shall not be liable for any claim arising out of the users’ transactions with the third party accessible through this Website.

 

Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge

Following an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is incorporated into this web page in order to display our Trusted Shops trustmark for buyers and the eventually collected reviews, as well as the Trusted Shops product offer.

In balancing the various interests, this serves to safeguard our legitimate prevailing interests in an optimised marketing of our offer. The Trustbadge and the services advertised are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Köln.

Whenever a Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically stores a so-called server log file which contains, for example, your IP address, the date and time of retrieval, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the retrieval. This access data will not be evaluated and will be automatically overwritten seven days after your visit to the page.

Other personal information will only be transferred to Trusted Shops if you decide, after completing an order, to use Trusted Shops products or have already registered for their use. In this case, the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.

The members can, anytime, log in their account and remove/alter/add any personal information they wish.

  • to respond to legal processes or comply with the law; or
  • to enforce our Terms of Use Agreement; or
  • to protect our rights; or
  • to protect the safety of the members of public and users/members of this Website; or
  • to a successor in interest that acquires rights to that information as a result of the potential sale of this Website, or substantially all of its assets, to that successor in interest.

Your rights

You not only have a right to physical integrity, but also such rights to protect your personality:

Overview

In addition to the right to object to the consent you have given us, you have the following further rights if the respective legal requirements are met:

Right to information about your personal data stored by us in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO,

in cases of transfers pursuant to Art. 46, 47 or 49 Para.1 No.2 DSGVO, the right to information or reference to the appropriate or adequate safeguards and how to obtain a copy of them or where they are available,

Your personal data stored by us in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO,

Right to have inaccurate data corrected or to have accurate data completed in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR,

the right to have your personal data stored by us deleted in accordance with Art. 17 DSGVO,

Right to restrict the processing of your data according to Art. 18 DSGVO,,

right to data portability according to Art. 20 DSGVO.

 

Right of objection

Under the conditions of Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, the processing of data may be objected to on grounds relating to the particular situation of the data subject.

The above general right of objection applies to all processing purposes described in these data protection provisions that are processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. Unlike the specific right of objection directed at data processing for advertising purposes, we are only obliged under the GDPR to implement such a general objection if you provide us with reasons of overriding importance for doing so (e.g. a possible risk to life or health). In addition, you have the option of contacting the supervisory authority responsible for us, the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Friedrichstraße 219, 10969 Berlin.

 

Data security

We use the highest standards of information security for our infrastructure and the processing of your data. For example, we use protective mechanisms for computers, such as firewalls and data encryption. Physical access controls apply to our buildings and data. Access to our customers' personal information is restricted to those employees who need it to do their jobs.

Also, all information you personally submit, including your payment information, is transmitted using the commonly used and secure standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is a secure and proven standard that is also used, for example, in online banking. You can recognise a secure SSL connection by the s appended to the http (i.e. https://...) in the address bar of your browser or by the lock symbol in the lower area of the browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously monitored in accordance with technological developments, regularly adapted to the respective risk and improved if necessary.

 

Right to information, deletion, blocking

You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as the right to correct, block or delete this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the following address: 8wines S.R.O, Radlická 112/22, Smichov, 150 00 Praha 5, Czech Republic
