When processing personal data, ecotube HOME & GARDEN GmbH observes the relevant legal provisions on data protection and data security in the relevant countries as well as internal data protection regulations.
Purpose and legal basis for the collection and processing of your personal data
We only collect and use personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as the contents and services or if this is necessary due to the contact or use of our services, e.g. ordering or use of our shop. The collection and use of personal data of our users is only done on a regular basis with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases where the processing of the data is absolutely necessary because of legal regulations or technical reasons.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
The processing of personal data required for the fulfillment of a contract to which the data subject is a party shall be governed by Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures.
Personal data will only be transmitted to third parties if there is a need within the scope of the contract. For example, third parties may be payment service providers or logistics companies. Further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to it.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR as legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR as the legal basis for processing. Our legitimate interest in the processing of the personal data of the data subject lies in the provision of a functional website.
Registration on this website
To use certain functions, you can register on our website. The transmitted data are used exclusively for the purpose of using the respective offer or service. Mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise we will refuse the registration.
In case of important changes, for example for technical reasons, we will inform you by e-mail. The e-mail will be sent to the address specified when you registered.
The processing of the data entered during registration is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). A revocation of your already granted consent is possible at any time. For the revocation, an informal notification by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
We store the data collected during registration during the period you are registered on our website. Your data will be deleted if you cancel your registration. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Presentation of personal data collected and processed
When you use our website, technical data such as the
- IP address of your network,
- Date, time, time zone and
- Status of the requested file,
- information about the website you came to our site from,
- your browser type and
- the version of your operating system
will be send to us and stored.
This means that information of your used terminal is recorded as log files on a server.
Here too, the data collected serve only to improve our offer. The operator may only store, issue or subsequently access server log files for a longer period of time and check them if this is permitted within the legal framework (e.g. if illegal activities are suspected).
The data including the IP addresses of the user are also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
In the case of the storage of non-anonymized data in log files, these are usually deleted or alienated or irrevocably anonymized after 14 days, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
If you provide us with personal information about this website, you must give your explicit consent. The data is only used for the specified purpose.
Deletion or restriction of the processing of personal data
We delete your personal data or restrict their processing as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
This is usually the case as follows:
- Quotation data: 1 year (customer feedback),
- Contract documents: 10 years,
- IP data: 3 years (regular limitation),
- Legal matters: 6 years (§ 50 BRAO)
- Claims: 10 years
If there is a tax retention period (voucher data) for certain data processed for the processing of sales contracts, the retention period amounts to 6 or 10 years. During this time, the processing of the data is restricted. The obligation to keep records begins at the end of the calendar year in which the offer was made or the contract was fulfilled.
Storage may therefore 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 controller is subject. A restriction or deletion of the data takes place even if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for further storage of the data for a conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of a contract.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
You can revoke your already given consent at any time. An informal e-mail notification is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Transmission of personal data
We transmit your data to processors involved in the processing, with whom we have concluded corresponding data protection agreements.
Your personal data will be disclosed to the following companies within the EU within the framework of the legal powers:
- Postal service providers, freight forwarders, shipping service providers

If your personal data is to be transmitted to a third country, this is always done in compliance with the GDPR regulations. When transmitting your personal data, Articles 44 to 49 GDPR and corresponding data protection agreements are taken into account or the EU Commission has made an adequacy decision for the respective target country. If a processor is located in a third country, the personal data will be transmitted at any time in compliance with the provisions of Art. 44 to 49 GDPR. A related addition will be made in the corresponding agreement on order processing.

It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and abbreviates it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, this could limit some functions of our website. You can also prevent the collection of data relating to your website usage including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
Our website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section “Objection to data collection”.

Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers find out how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with a conversion tracking tag. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that enables users to be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to its use. Here the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. This means that there is no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics.
