Solely the respective supplier or operator of theses websites is responsible for their contents. This also applies to the application of the data processing by third party websites.
2. Collection of Personal Data
Personal data mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person such as your first and last name, your phone number, your date of birth, your billing and shipping address or your e-mail address. Strenesse collects, processes and uses such data only in accordance with statutory provisions, or as far as you allowed permission to use your personal data, e.g. when subscribing for the Online Store Newsletter.
In addition the STRENESSE New GmbHcollects, processes and uses only personal data that you provide within the framework of placing your order, you saved in your personal customer account or which is collected when visiting our Online Store in order to legitimately justify, process and fulfill your contract of purchase.
For only visiting the Online Store, it is not necessary to provide any of our personal details. Personal information will only be stored if you allow permission to do so, e.g. when using the contact form or within your personal customer account.
Whenever the Customer accesses one of the pages of the Online Store, or downloads a file, access information relating to this process and browser data are stored in a log file on Strenesse servers. This information may contain your IP address, browser settings and type, operating system, access status, date and time of your visit or pages the Customer accessed the Online Store from. This data is gathered to generate statistics helping Strenesse to continuously optimize the Online Store to your requirements.
2.1. Customer Account
Within the Online Store, you have the possibility to register for your personal customer account where you need to enter only once your personal information, billing and shipping address for all your future purchases; where you can view your order history, create your personal whish list with all your favorite articles or manage your newsletter settings at any time.
To register for such customer account, your name, your billing and shipping address, your e-mail address and a personally chosen password are required. Your e-mail address and your password will serve as your login data.
All data entered are transmitted by 256-bit SSL encryption.
2.2. Placing an Order as a Guest (“Guest Order”)
If you wish to place an order without registering for a personal customer account, Strenesse offers placing an order as a guest. To do so, you are asked to enter your first and last name, your billing and shipping address, your e-mail address, as well as optional your date of birth and your phone number.
Strenesse requires your first and last name, your billing and shipping address to generally process and ship your order. Your phone number further helps a smooth order processing in case questions relating to your order arise which are fastest to clarify directly over the phone.
Your e-mail address is needed to confirm your order. Your date of birth is important if you choose a method of payment (e.g. on invoice), which requires carrying out a credit check, as this data is an additional means of identification that distinguishes you from other users.
For the purpose of placing a guest order, a fast-track account is created where your entered data remains saved enabling you to return to your ordering process after disrupting it (e.g. to view your shopping bag or to look for further articles) without having to start entering all data anew.
Strenesse exclusively uses all data provided by you to process and fulfill your order. Your data will be locked for further use (e.g. for advertising purposes) after both completion of the contract and full payment. Your entered data will be deleted according to the applicable tax and commercial provisions, unless you explicitly have agreed to the further use of your data (e.g. by subscribing to the newsletter).
2.3. Credit Check and Address Verification
When choosing payment on invoice during the order process, Strenesse may – given proof of legitimate interest - carry out an automated run credit check and/or validation of billing address upon request by one of the institutions listed below. Such checks may be run on your name, your address and your date of birth identifying a “score-value” on the basis of mathematical calculations and evaluating a potential credit risk from that.
These institutions carry out the credit check:
Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG
arvato infoscore GmbH
