Your rights as a data subject
We would first like to notify you of your rights as a data subject. These rights are set out in Articles 15 - 22 GDPR, and include:
- The right of access (Art. 15 GDPR),
- The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR),
- The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR),
- The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 GDPR),
- The right to erasure / right to be forgotten (Art. 17 GDPR),
- The right to restriction of data processing (Art. 18 GDPR).
To exercise these rights, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. The same applies if you have any questions regarding data processing in our company or when you withdraw your consent. You also have a right of appeal to the relevant data protection supervisory authority.
Right to object
Please note the following with respect to your right to object:
When we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without providing the reasons for such objection. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct marketing.
If you object to the processing for direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made informally, where appropriate to: email@example.com
Should we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to such processing at any time for reasons that arise from your specific situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will then cease to process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing such information that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Purposes and legal bases of data processing
The processing of your personal data complies with the provisions of the GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. Legal bases for data processing arise in particular from Art. 6 GDPR.
We use your data to initiate business, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to conduct the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to consolidate customer relationships, which may include marketing and direct marketing. Your consent may also constitute a legal basis for data processing. In this respect, we will inform you of the purposes of data processing and the right to withdraw your consent in advance.
Data transfers / Disclosure to third parties
We will only transmit your data to third parties within the scope of given statutory provisions or based on consent. In all other cases, information will not be transferred to third parties unless we are obliged to do so owing to mandatory legal regulations (disclosure to external bodies, including the supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).
Data recipients / categories of recipients
In our organization, we ensure that only individuals who are required to process the relevant data to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations are authorized to handle personal data.
In certain cases, service providers assist our specialist departments to fulfil their tasks, including hosting, shop-programming, payment-processing, credit-check, newsletter and shipping. The necessary data protection contract has been concluded with all service providers.
Transfers of personal data to third countries
A transfer of data to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) shall only take place if required by law or if you have provided your consent for such a transfer.
We don’t transfer your personal data to recipients outside the European Economic Area.
Period of data storage
We store your data for as long as such is required for the relevant processing purposes. Please note that numerous retention statutory periods require that data must be stored for a specific period of time. This relates in particular to retention obligations for commercial or fiscal purposes (e.g. commercial code, tax code, etc.). The data will be routinely deleted after use unless a further period of retention is required.
We may also retain data if you have given us your permission to do so, or in the event of any legal disputes and we use the evidence within the statutory limitation period, which may be up to 30 years; the standard limitation period is 3 years.
Secure transfer of data
We implement the appropriate technical and organisational security measures to ensure the optimal protection of the data stored by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. The security levels are continuously reviewed in collaboration with security experts and adapted to new security standards.
The data exchange to and from our website is encrypted. We provide https as a transfer protocol for our website, and always use the current encryption protocols. It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (e.g. surface mail).

Cookies (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f EU-DS-GVO / Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO bei Einwilligung)
Our website uses “cookies” at various locations, which serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser (locally on your hard disk).
Cookies enable us to analyse how users use our websites so we can design the website content in accordance with the visitor’s needs. Cookies also allow us to measure the effectiveness of a particular ad and, for example, to place it based on the user's interests. Legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f, if consent is given Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO.
We use the following cookies:
Those cookies are being operated directly by NICI GmbH. Depending on the purpose, these remain permanently - even after the end of the session (so-called persistent cookies, e.g.: implementation of opt-out) or are deleted when the browser is closed (so-called session cookies; they have only one Browser session validity).
So-called temporary / permanent cookies are used, which are automatically deleted after the specified time (usually 6 months). These temporary or permanent cookies are stored on your end device and delete themselves after the specified time. The cookies of our partner companies also only contain pseudonymous, usually even anonymous, data. They enable our partners to retrace which products you viewed, whether something was bought, which products were searched for, etc.
Some of our advertising partners also collect information beyond the website about which pages you have previously visited or which products you have been interested in, for example. This makes it possible to display individual advertising. This pseudonymous data is never combined with your personal data.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. Of course, you can also deactivate, restrict or delete cookies on your end device manually via the settings of your browser or using software.
Please note: If you deactivate the setting of cookies, you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are saved and this analysis tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google 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. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. 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 activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. 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 the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection against data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website:
We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic features with Google Analytics
This website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain information about the age, gender and interests of the website visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the point “Objection against data collection”.
Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This function enables the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked to the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device on which you log in with your Google account.
To support this function, Google Analytics records Google-authenticated IDs of the users, which are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing / targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account; follow this link. (Link)
The summary of the data recorded in your Google account takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent, which you can give or revoke to Google (Art. 6 Para. 1 a GDPR). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged into your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merging), the recording of the data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
Further information and the data protection regulations can be found in Google's data protection privacy.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion-Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. If you click on an advertisement placed by Google, a cookie for the conversion tracking is set. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser places on the user's computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers receive the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your Internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
“Conversion cookies” are saved on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can find more information on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking in Google's data protection privacy.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
On our website we use Google Maps from Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps to visually display geographic information. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR Our legitimate interest lies in optimizing the functionality of our website.
As soon as you call up the sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your profile to be assigned to Google, you must log out before activating the button.
Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection convention "Privacy Shield", which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
We integrate the videos of the “YouTube” platform from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, into our online offer. The videos were embedded in the extended data protection mode.
By embedding the video in the extended data protection mode, no cookies are set that record usage behavior in order to personalize the video playback. However, the extended data protection mode only refers to the recording of user behavior, not to the provision of ads.
When you visit our site, a device ID is generated in the local storage of the web browser and saved beyond the session. In addition, calling up the site leads to a connection to the Google DoubleClick network. If you start the video, this could trigger further data processing operations. We have no influence on that.
If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your YouTube profile to be assigned, you must log out before activating the button.
YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and / or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact YouTube to exercise it.
Opposition option: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated
Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube can be found in Google's data protection declaration. There you will also find further information on your rights and setting options to protect your privacy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy
Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framewok

Contact form / Contact via email (Article 6 (1) lit a, b GDPR)
A contact form is available on our website which can be used to contact us electronically. If you write to us using the contact form, we will process the data you submitted in the contact form to respond to your queries and requests.
In so doing, we respect the principle of data minimization and data avoidance, such that you only have to provide the information we require to contact you, which is your email address and the message field itself and (if applicable) further information required to address your request. Your IP address will also be processed for technical reasons and for legal protection. All other data is voluntary, and additional fields are optional (e.g. to provide a more detailed response to your questions).
In order to best protect the security and confidentiality of your data, we implement appropriate security measures. Your request will be transmitted to us using https encryption.
If you contact us by email, we will process the personal information provided in the email solely for the purpose of processing your request. If you do not use the forms offered to contact us, no additional data will be collected.
Newsletter (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR)
You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. The email address and name you provided when you subscribed to the newsletter will be used to send the personalized newsletter. If you provide us with an optional salutation, first and last name, the newsletter will be sent in a personalized form.
The principle of data minimization and data avoidance is observed here, as only the email address is mandatory. Your IP address will also be processed when you subscribe to the newsletter for technical reasons and legal protection.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to send newsletters by email. This means that you will only receive advertising by email if you have expressly confirmed beforehand that we should activate the newsletter service. We do this by sending you a notification email and asking you to confirm by clicking on a link contained in this email that you would like to receive our newsletter at this email address.
You can of course terminate the subscription at any time via the opt-out option provided in the newsletter and therefore withdraw your consent. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter via our website.
This also applies to any newsletter tracking pixels used.
Competition / advertising consent (Article 6 (1) lit a, b GDPR)
You can participate in various lotteries we offer on our website. If you complete the competition form, we process the relevant data you provided for the sole purpose of operating the competition.
The principle of data minimization and data avoidance is observed here, as we only request data that is required to operate the competition itself, as well as the notification of the winner.
The mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk (*). Your IP address will also be processed for technical reasons and legal protection. The additional fields are optional and can be completed on a voluntary basis. We cannot operate the competition without the mandatory fields, as users will not be able to participate.
We will only forward your data to third parties within the framework of the statutory provisions or with the appropriate consent. Otherwise, it will not be forwarded to third parties, unless we are obliged to do so due to mandatory legal provisions (disclosure to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).
As part of the competition mask, you also have the option of giving us your consent to send a newsletter. Of course, it is also possible to take part in the competition without giving your advertising consent.
If you give us your consent by ticking the newsletter checkbox, we will process your data as described in the newsletter section. You can revoke this consent at any time, as described in the newsletter section.
Ordering through the web shop (Article 6 (1) lit b GDPR)
We process the data provided by you within the scope of the order form solely to execute and fulfil the underlying contractual relationship, unless you agree to further use. The principle of data minimization and data avoidance is observed here, as we only request data that is required to perform the contract or fulfil our contractual obligations or to collect data that is mandatory under the law. Your IP address will also be processed for technical reasons and legal protection.
If this data is not provided, we will have to decline the conclusion of the contract, as we cannot then perform the contract or will be obliged to terminate an existing contract, where appropriate. You can of course provide additional data on a voluntary basis
Registration / Customer account (Article 6 (1) lit a, b GDPR)
On our website, we offer users the opportunity to register by providing personal information. The advantage is that you can see the order history in particular and the data you enter will be saved for the order form. If you order again, you do not have to enter it again.
Registration is therefore possible either to fulfill a contract with you (via our online shop) or to carry out pre-contractual measures. An order can also be placed without opening a customer account.
The principle of data minimization and data avoidance is observed, since only the data required for registration are marked with an asterisk (*) as a mandatory field.
By registering on our website, the user's IP address, the date and time of registration are also saved (technical background data). By clicking the "Register now" button, you give your consent to the processing of your data.
Please note: The password you assign will be saved in encrypted form. Employees from our company cannot read this password. They can therefore not give you any information should you have forgotten your password.
In this case, use the "Forgot password" function, which will send you an automatically generated new password by email. No employee is authorized to ask for your password by phone or in writing. Therefore, please never give your password if you receive such requests.
With the completion of the registration process, your data is stored with us for the use of the protected customer area. As soon as you log on to our website with your email address as your user name and password, this customer data will be made available on our website for actions you have carried out (e.g. for orders in our online shop). Executed orders can be tracked in the order history. You can specify changes to the billing or delivery address here.
Registered persons are free to make changes / corrections to the billing or delivery address in the order history independently. Of course, you can also cancel or delete the registration or your customer account.
Payment systems / credit check (Article 6 (1) lit a, b, f GDPR)
In our online shop you can select to pay by credit card, PayPal or direct debit. In order to proceed accordingly, the relevant payment data is collected to perform and process your order. Your IP address will also be processed for technical reasons and legal protection.
The principle of data minimization and data avoidance is observed in a manner that you only submit the data we need to process the payment and therefore fulfil the contract or to collect the payment or for which we are under a legal obligation.
We cannot fulfil the contract without this data, and we will therefore have to decline it.
The payment system we use implements SSL encryption to protect your data.
Note on credit card payment: As a standard procedure with credit card payments, your credit card details will be checked and a credit check is carried out.
Note on PayPal: PayPal is a PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A company, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg. If the data subject selects “PayPal” as an option during the order process in our online shop, the data subject’s information will be automatically sent to “PayPal”.
By selecting this payment option, the data subject consents to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing. The personal data transmitted to PayPal is generally a first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data required for payment processing.
Personal data associated with the relevant order is also necessary to execute the purchase contract. Details on data protection at PayPal can be found at: https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-prev (legal position from May 25, 2018).
Marketing purposes (Article 6 (1) lit f GDPR)
NICI GmbH is keen to nurture the customer relationship with you and to send you information and offers about our products / services. We therefore process your data to send you the relevant information and offers via email.

You may object to the use of your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct marketing. If you object, we will cease processing your personal information for this purpose.

Online offers for children
Persons under the age of 16 may not submit personal data to us or give a declaration of consent without the authorization of their legal guardian. We encourage parents and guardians to actively participate in the online activities and interests of their children.
Links to other providers
Our website also contains clearly identifiable links to the Internet sites of other companies. Although we provide links to websites of other providers, we have no influence on their content, and no guarantee or liability can therefore be assumed for such. The content of these pages is always the responsibility of the respective provider or operator of the pages.
The linked pages were checked at the time of linking for potential legal violations and identifiable infringements. No illegal content was identified at the time of linking. However, a permanent content control of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement and, upon notification of a violation of rights, such links will be promptly removed.
