Privacy policy

The person responsible for data processing is:
Canton Elektronik GmbH + Co. KG
Neugasse 21-23

shop@canton.de

Thank you for your interest in our online shop. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

1. Access data and hosting

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever you call up a website, the web server merely automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the call, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.

This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which are predominant in the context of a weighing of interests. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to our website.

Hosting services through a third-party provider
In the context of processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh the interests of the parties involved. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose in the online shop as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the scope described here.

This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

2. Data collection and use for contract processing, contact

We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with this information as part of your order or when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data for the processing of the contract or for the processing of your contact and you cannot send the order or contact without their indication. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide us with in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO for contract processing and processing your enquiries. Insofar as you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO by deciding to open a customer account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a customer account. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the tax and commercial law retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this which is legally permitted and about which we inform you in this declaration. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact option described below or by using a function in the customer account intended for this purpose.

3. Data transfer

In order to fulfil the contract in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the ordering process, we will pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service for the processing of payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you open an account there. In this case you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this respect the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies.

Data transfer to shipping service providers
If you have given us your express consent to do so during or after your order, we will pass on your telephone number to the selected shipping service provider in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO, so that they can contact you before delivery for the purpose of announcing or coordinating delivery.

Consent can be revoked at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below or directly to the shipping service provider at the contact address listed below. After revocation, we will delete the data you have provided for this purpose, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

5. Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge

For the display of our Trusted Shops seal of approval and the possibly collected ratings as well as the offer of Trusted Shops products for buyers after an order, the Trusted Shops trust badge is integrated on this website.

This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in optimal marketing, which predominate in the context of a weighing of interests, by enabling safe purchasing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The trust badge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne. The trust badge is made available by a CDN provider (Content Delivery Network) within the scope of order processing. Trusted Shops GmbH also uses service providers from the USA. An appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed. Further information on data protection at Trusted Shops GmbH can be found here.

When the trust badge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, date and time of the call, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. Individual access data is stored in a security database for the analysis of security incidents. The log files are automatically deleted at the latest 90 days after creation.

Further personal data is transferred to Trusted Shops GmbH, if you decide after completion of an order for the use of Trusted Shops products or have already registered for the use. It applies the contractual agreement met between you and Trusted Shops. For this an automatic collection of personal data from the order data takes place. Whether you are already registered as a buyer for a product use is automatically checked by means of a neutral parameter, the e-mail address hashed by cryptological one-way function. The e-mail address is converted before transmission into this hash value, which cannot be decrypted by Trusted Shops. After checking for a match, the parameter is automatically deleted.

This is necessary for the fulfillment of our and Trusted Shops' predominant legitimate interests in the provision of the buyer protection linked to the specific order and the transactional valuation services in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. Further details, also on the objection, can be found in the Trusted Shops data protection declaration linked above and in the trust badge.

The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

Google will use this information to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services associated with website use. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
