The person responsible within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is

Hansa Naturheilmittel GmbH
Leher Heerstraße 127 E.
28359 Bremen


b. Name and address of the data protection officer
Please contact our data protection officer as follows:

Email: datenschutz@hansanatur.de

You are welcome to contact our data protection officer directly with any questions or suggestions relating to data protection.



2. General

a. Scope of the processing of personal data
We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. If this is not the case, the personal data will only be used with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

b. Legal basis for processing
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that are required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit.d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) lit.f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the conduct of our business activities.

c. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store personal data of the data subject only as long as this is necessary to achieve the storage purpose. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible for processing is subject. As soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies or a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted.

d. Security of your data
We endeavor to save your personal data by taking all technical and organizational possibilities so that they are not accessible to third parties. We cannot guarantee complete data security when communicating by email. The provider expressly points out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) has security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties. We therefore recommend that you send confidential information by post.


3. Usage data

a. Log files

Each time the website is accessed, we or the website provider collect data and information through an automated system. These are saved in the server’s log files.

The following data can be collected:

Information about the browser type and the version used
The user’s operating system
The user’s internet service provider
The user’s IP address
Date and time of access

So-called cookies are used on our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the cache of your internet browser for the duration of your browser session (so-called session cookies) or for a specified period (so-called permanent cookies) on your hard drive. The cookies enable the Internet browser to be recognized, so that when you visit our website in the future, more targeted content can be made available to you that is tailored to your needs and wishes.

We process your location data processed in this way exclusively for this function. If you stop using it, the data will be deleted.

d. Google
Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (hereinafter “Google”). Google Analytics also uses cookies.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We use IP anonymization on our website, which means that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. Google has committed itself to complying with the Privacy Shield Agreement between the EU and the USA published by the US Department of Commerce on the collection, use and storage of personal data from EU member states and accordingly holds a Privacy Shield Certificate.

On our behalf, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Usage profiles of the visitors to our website can be created from the transmitted data. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The evaluation of the user behavior of the website is based on the legitimate interests of the provider. By evaluating the anonymized usage data, the page is adapted and optimized to user behavior.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website and from processing the data by Google by using the browser plug-in, which you can find, install and download under the following link:

Google marketing services including remarketing

This website uses the marketing and remarketing services (“Google Marketing Services” for short) from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”). The data processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR on the basis of your consent.

Google Marketing Services allow us to display advertisements in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with advertisements that potentially correspond to their interests. If, for example, the user is shown advertisements for products that he was interested in on other websites, this is called “remarketing”. For these purposes, when our and other websites on which Google Marketing Services are active, a code is immediately executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, too referred to as “Web Beacons”) integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is saved on the user’s device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by different domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers he has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer. The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby this website informs in the context of Google Analytics that the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only increased in full in exceptional cases is transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address will not be merged with the user’s data within other Google offers. The aforementioned information can also be combined with information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, the advertisements tailored to him can be displayed according to his interests.

The user data is processed pseudonymously as part of Google Marketing Services. This means that Google does not store and process e.g. the name or email address of the user, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that from Google’s point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie owner, regardless of who this cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about the user by “DoubleClick” is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.

The Google marketing services used by this website include the online advertising program “Google Ads”. In the case of Google Ads, each Ads customer receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. The information obtained with the help of the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Ads customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

Another Google marketing service we use is the “Google Tag Manager”, with the help of which further Google analysis and marketing services can be integrated into our website (eg “Ads”, “DoubleClick” or “Google Analytics”) .

You can find more information on the use of data by Google for marketing purposes on the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google’s data protection declaration is at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy retrievable.

If you want to object to the collection by Google Marketing Services, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated?hl=de.

Google web fonts

(http://www.google.com/webfonts/) are used to visually improve the presentation of various information on this website. The web fonts are transferred to the browser’s cache when the page is called up so that they can be used for the display. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, the text is displayed in a standard font.

When visiting the site, no cookies are stored for the website visitor. Data that is transmitted in connection with the page view is sent to resource-specific domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. They are not associated with data that may be collected or used in connection with the parallel use of authenticated Google services such as Gmail.

If your browser does not support Google Fonts or if you prevent access to the Google server, the text will be displayed in the system’s standard font.

You can find information on the data protection conditions of Google Webfonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq#Privacy

General information on data protection is available in the Google Privacy Center at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Google Maps

The website of Hansa Naturheilmittel has integrated the Google Maps service in order to illustrate and display the contact address. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When using it, Google collects and processes data about the use of the map function by the user. More detailed information on data processing can be found in the Google data protection declaration.

The basis of the data processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a) GDPR and lit. f) GDPR.

e. Youtube
Our website uses the embedding function of YouTube to display and play videos from the provider “YouTube”. YouTube belongs to Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. Here we use the extended data protection mode, which, according to YouTube, does not start storing user information until the videos are played. After starting playback of the YouTube videos embedded on our website, the provider uses cookies to collect information about your user behavior. According to “YouTube”, this data is used, among other things, to create video statistics, to optimize user-friendliness and to prevent abusive actions. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account as soon as you click on a video. If you do not wish to be assigned to your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data, even for users who are not logged in, as usage profiles and evaluates them.

Legal basis

The legal basis for such an evaluation is, in particular, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR; Google’s legitimate interest is in the placement of personalized advertising, market research and the needs-based design of its website.

Opposition and removal option

You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, which you must contact YouTube to exercise. Regardless of whether the embedded videos are played, a connection to the Google “DoubleClick” network is established each time this website is accessed, which can trigger further data processing operations without our influence. You can find more information on data protection at “YouTube” in the provider’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy
