Privacy policy

Data protection declaration according to DSGVO

1. Person responsible in the sense of the basic data protection regulation
The person responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection laws of the member states as well as other data protection regulations is:

21Diamonds Ltd.
At the inlet 1a
80469 Munich
0800 342 62 68

customerservice@21DIAMONDS.co.uk

www.21diamonds.co.uk


The data controller is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body (in our case: legal person) that alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

2. Scope of processing of personal data
We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO 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 fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) DSGVO 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, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for processing.

4. Data erasure and storage time
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

5. Log files
Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected:
The IP address of the user
date and time of access

The data is 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 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in these purposes.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible. The person responsible reserves the right to store further data to prevent cyber attacks; in this case, IP addresses may be blacklisted so that it is no longer possible to access our website. In such a case, a user's IP address will be kept for a maximum of one month.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of 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.

6. Cookies
Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user's computer system. If a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string that enables a unique identification of the browser when the website is called up again.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:
Language settings
Items in a shopping cart
log-in information

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For this it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page change. We need cookies for the following applications:
Acceptance of language settings
Shopping cart
log-in information

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted to our site. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full.

7. Registration
On our website, we offer users the opportunity to register by providing personal data. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and saved. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The following data is collected during the registration process:
the date and time of registration
First name
Surname
Address
In the course of the registration process, the user's consent to the processing of this data is obtained.

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.

A registration of the user is necessary for the provision of certain contents and services on our website. These are the following services:
Insight into current and previous orders
Saving the shipping address
Creation of a wish list.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration on our website is cancelled or changed.

As a user you have the possibility to cancel the registration at any time. All you need to do is send an informal request to the person responsible (for contact details, see section 1). You can change the data stored about you at any time. For this purpose, we provide a function within the scope of the customer account.  

8. Contact form / e-mail contact


There is a contact form on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this possibility, only the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored.

Your consent is obtained for the processing of the data within the scope of the sending process and reference is made to this data protection declaration.

Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 exp. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us only for the treatment of the establishment of contact. In the event of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those that were sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user is finished. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.

The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. In all other respects a revocation of the consent and a contradiction of the storage can be addressed informally by inquiry to 21Diamonds GmbH (contact data see Ziff. 1). All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.

9. Ordering and payment transactions


When you place an order via our homepage, we collect the personal data required to carry out this process. We pass this data on to logistics service providers as far as this is necessary to process the contract. We will pass on the data provided by you for processing the payment transaction to the credit institution named by you, insofar as this is necessary for the execution of the payment transaction. We work together with various payment service providers, which we will discuss in more detail below.
The legal basis for the collection and dissemination of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Paypal
We use the online payment service PayPal. Payments can be made through PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the option of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to initiate online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also acts as a trustee and provides buyer protection services.

PayPal's European operating company is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If you select "PayPal" as a payment option in our online shop during the order process, personal data is automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, you consent to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, e-mail address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data required for payment processing. Personal data in connection with the respective order are also necessary for the processing of the purchase contract.

The purpose of data transmission is to process payments and prevent fraud. We will transfer personal data in particular if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and us may be transferred by PayPal to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to verify identity and creditworthiness.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

PayPal may pass on personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors if this is necessary to fulfil contractual obligations or if the data is to be processed on behalf of PayPal.

You have the option to revoke your consent to the handling of personal data by PayPal at any time. A revocation does not affect personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

10. Analysis tools: Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will previously be reduced by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Other related services will then be provided based on the use of the website and the Internet. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

11. Online marketing (retargeting, remarketing)

a) Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
Our site uses Google AdWords, an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to serve ads in both Google search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.

The operator of Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What a cookie is has already been explained in paragraph 6 above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transferred to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits our Internet pages. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

Since the purpose of the use of conversion cookies is to serve targeted advertising, the legal basis for data processing is set out in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Alternatively you can install a browser plugin, which you can find under the following link:
http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=en
Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, you have the opportunity to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the www.google.de/settings/ads link from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the required settings there.

Google is a company certified under the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European data protection standards; see also:

b) Google AdWords Remarketing
Our website uses the functions of Google AdWords Remarketing. Remarketing describes an advertising behavior that specifically addresses those visitors to a website who have already shown a concrete interest in the respective website in the past.

The operator of Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

For remarketing purposes, Google leaves a cookie in your device's browser that can display personalized advertising using a pseudonymous cookie ID. Pseudonymization enables Google to manage advertisements not for a specific person, but exclusively for the owner of a cookie, without Google (or a third party) knowing who that person is.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Any further processing will only take place if you have consented to Google doing so (linking your Google Account and browser history to display personalised advertising). 

You can permanently disable the setting of cookies for advertising preferences by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/

To prevent the setting of cookies and their effects, see also paragraphs 6 and 11 a) above.

Google is a company certified under the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European data protection standards; see also:

c) Bing Ads
We use the conversion tracking technology Bing Ads from Microsoft. If you came across our site via a Bing ad, Bing Ads will place a cookie in your system. It loses its validity after 180 days. Personal identification is not possible. If the user returns to our online presence within the validity of the cookie, Microsoft and we can verify that the user was directed to our website via the Bing advertisement.

Bing is operated by Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA.

This procedure serves the effective, interest-fair and personalisieren switching of advertisement. The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Microsoft is a company certified under the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European data protection standards; see also:

d) Criteo

Our website uses the Criteo service, which uses an algorithm to investigate the user's movement behaviour on the web. Based on the evaluation, it is possible to display personalized advertising on external pages.

The operating company is Criteo SA, 32 Rue Blanche, 75009 Paris, France.

The legal basis for data processing can be found in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The data collected in this way is not suitable for identifying a user. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

The collection and evaluation of data by Criteo is subject to its contradiction. You can select the opt-out functions for "Criteo Dynamic Retargeting" and "Criteo Sponsored Products" provided by Criteo:

https://www.criteo.com/privacy/


You will also find Criteo's current privacy policy under the above link.


e) Facebook pixels / "Custom audiences
We use the so-called Facebook pixel. This serves to define the visitors to our website as the target group for certain advertising campaigns operated via Facebook. The pixel makes it possible to display our advertising campaigns only to users who have already shown a concrete interest in our online offer in the past (so-called custom audiences). This procedure also prevents our advertising from being displayed to users who are not interested in our offer and would therefore find the advertising disturbing.

Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA; in the EU: Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The data collected in this way is used by us exclusively for statistical and market research purposes, without any conclusion being possible as to the identity of the respective user. However, Facebook can identify the user by linking the data to the Facebook profile. A cookie may also be stored in your system in this context.

The legal basis can therefore be found in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

However, consent is only granted if the user is 13 years of age. If you are younger, the consent of your legal guardian is required.

To prevent the setting of cookies and their effects, see also paragraphs 6 and 11 a) and b) above.

Facebook is a company certified under the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European data protection standards; see also:


https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active

12 Other third-party services
We use the services of third parties described below on our website.

These services require the transmission of the IP address of the users, since this is technically necessary for the presentation of the respective contents. Furthermore, the following data is passed on regularly:
date and time of access
Amount of data transferred
Internet service provider of the user
Third-party providers may also set cookies in your system. In this respect, we refer to paragraph 5 (log files) and paragraph 6 (cookies) of this data protection declaration.

The data processing serves the analysis and optimization of our online offer. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

a) Google Maps
We use the Google Maps map service provided by Google.


The operator of the Google Maps services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

b) Trusted Shops
In our online presence we display the "seal of approval" of Trusted Shops, which at the same time enables a perception of the ratings given for our offer.

The operating company is Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne.

The personal data collected when clicking on the logo will be deleted no later than seven days after the page visit. Further data transfer to Trusted Shops can only occur if you purchase a product offered by Trusted Shops or are already a registered user of Trusted Shops.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transmission.

(b) Right to correction
You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you are incorrect or incomplete. The person responsible shall make the correction without delay.

(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
(3) the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you do need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
(4) if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the processing restriction has been restricted according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.
For data processing for scientific, historical or statistical research purposes:
Your right to limitation of processing may be limited to the extent that it is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudicial the achievement of research or statistical purposes and the restriction is necessary for the fulfilment of research or statistical purposes.

d) Right to cancellation
You may request the data controller to delete the personal data relating to you without delay and the controller is obliged to delete this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent, on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The right to cancellation does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary
(1) to exercise freedom of expression and information;
(2) for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO;

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another person in charge without obstruction by the person in charge to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
(1) processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and
(2) processing is carried out by means of automated methods.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

g) Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DSBER; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The data controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

You also have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO for reasons arising from your particular situation.
Your right of objection may be limited to the extent that it is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the realisation of the research or statistical purposes and the limitation is necessary for the fulfilment of the research or statistical purposes.

h) Right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent
You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

i) Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
(2) the legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject is admissible and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or
(3) with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

j)    Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or suspect of infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the DSGVO.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 DSGVO.
