Information on the Collection of Personal Data
(1) In the following passages, we have provided information on the collection of personal data when you use our website www.evonos.de. Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, for example your name, address, email addresses, and user behavior.

(4) If you contact us by email or via a contact form, the data that you have disclosed (your email address and possibly your name and telephone number) will be stored by us so that we can respond to your queries. We will erase the data generated in this context after storage is no longer required or restrict processing if it is subject to statutory retention requirements.
(5) The processing of personal data may be based on the following legal grounds:
- Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR for processing operations, for which we obtain your consent in advance for a specific processing purpose;
- Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR to the extent that the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract. The same applies in respect of processing operations that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example when inquiries are made about our products;
- Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR to the extent that we are subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, for example to comply with tax or accounting obligations;
- Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests unless your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms override our interests.
(1) Your personal data will only be processed and stored for the period necessary to fulfill the purpose of storage and/or as provided by law. After this purpose has ceased to exist or has been fulfilled, your personal data will be erased or blocked.
(2) If your data is blocked, it will be erased as soon as there are no other storage periods to the contrary, there is no reason to assume that erasure would impair your legitimate interests, and erasure would not involve a disproportionate amount of effort due to the special nature of the storage.
Collaboration with Processors
(1) For the provision of our website and services, we sometimes use external service providers (e.g. for sending newsletters or for analysis). These processors will only act on our instructions and have been contractually obligated, in accordance with Article 28 GDPR, to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
(2) If personal data about you is disclosed by us to our subsidiaries or is disclosed to us by our subsidiaries (e.g. for advertising purposes), this is carried out on the basis of existing order processing relationships.
Collection of Personal Data When You Visit our Website
(1) If you use our website purely for information purposes, that is, if you do not register with us or provide us with information in any other way, then we will only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server.

(2) Cookies may contain data allowing us to recognize the device you are using. In some cases, cookies only contain information about certain settings that cannot be related to a specific person. However, cookies cannot directly identify a user.
(3) A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. With regard to their function, we again differentiate between the following types of cookies:
- Technical cookies: These are absolutely necessary to enable you to navigate the website and use basic functions, and to ensure the security of the website. They do not collect information about you for marketing purposes, nor do they store information about any other websites you have visited;
- Performance cookies: These collect information about how you use our website, which pages you visit and, for example, whether errors occur during your use of the website. They do not collect information that could identify you – all information collected is anonymous and is used only to improve our website and to find out what interests our users;
- Advertising cookies, targeting cookies: These are used to offer the website user tailored advertising on the website or offers from third parties and to measure the effectiveness of these offers;
- Sharing cookies: These are used to improve the interactivity of our website with other services (e.g. social networks).
(5) You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and refuse to accept third-party cookies, for example, or all cookies. However, please note that you may not then be able to use all of this website's features.
(1) When you contact us by phone or email, the data you provide will be stored by us on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR in order to answer your inquiry. We will erase the data generated in this context when the respective conversation with you has ended and the matter in question has been conclusively resolved.
(2) For concluding and processing contracts or for implementing pre-contractual measures on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR and depending on the individual case, we will require contact details such as your name, delivery and billing address, and email address, as well as information on the type of payment method you have chosen.
(3) Based on Article 6 (1) (c) and (f) GDPR, we use and store your personal data to the extent that we are legally obliged to do so, for example due to regulatory or judicial orders. We also use and store your personal data in order to exercise our rights and claims as well as for legal defense purposes.
Newsletter/Use of CleverReach
(1) With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter where we provide information on any interesting offers that are currently available. The goods and services advertised are specified in the declaration of consent.
(2) We use the ‘double opt-in procedure’ for signing people up to our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will email you at the address you have provided, requesting confirmation that you would like to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 7 days, your information will be blocked and automatically erased after one month. We also save the IP addresses used by you and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to be able to substantiate your registration and resolve any misuse of your personal data, if necessary.
(3) We use the services of CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG (www.cleverreach.com) for the organization of newsletter mailings and their analysis. The data provided by you for mailing out the newsletter (i.e. your email address and any other data voluntarily provided) will be stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany and Ireland. With the aid of CleverReach, we can analyze how many recipients have opened the newsletter, which links in the newsletter attracted clicks and how often, which recipients have unsubscribed from the newsletter, and which email addresses the newsletter could not be delivered to.
(4) The only information that you have to provide so that we can send you the newsletter is your email address. The provision of any additional, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to address you personally. After receiving your confirmation, we will save your email address for the purpose of mailing out the newsletter. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
(5) You can withdraw your consent to the sending of the newsletter and hence to the analysis by CleverReach at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can notify us of your withdrawal of consent by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email, emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by sending a message to the contact details provided in the imprint. The lawfulness of the data processing that has already been carried out remains unaffected by this withdrawal of consent.
(6) Your data stored with us or CleverReach will be deleted from the distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this. After you have unsubscribed from the mailing list, we may store your email address in a blacklist to prevent future mailings. The data from this blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements for sending out newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). Your email will be stored in the blacklist for an indefinite period. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
