Phone: +49 921 16324608
E-mail: contact@commerzclothing.com


The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes

addresses, etc.).


Storage duration


Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain
with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for
deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally
permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the

Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries


Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data

protection perspective non-secure non-EU countries. If these tools are active, your personal data may
potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in
these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For
instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you as
the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out
that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and permanently archive your personal
data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.


Revocation of your consent to the processing of data


A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also
revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness
of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

 

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct
advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)


IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE
THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON
GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED
ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS
BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE
WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO
PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA,
THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE
PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION
PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).


IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING,
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR
THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE
EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL
DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES
(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).


Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency


In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory
agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the
place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other
administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.


Right to data portability


You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your
consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine
readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done
only if it is technically feasible.


Information about, rectification and eradication of data


Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand
information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the
processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have

questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to
contact us at any time.


Right to demand processing restrictions


You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is
concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in
the following cases:


- In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need
some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to
demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.


- If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to
demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.


- If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal
entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead
of its eradication.


- If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be
weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the
right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.


If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving –
may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to
protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by
the European Union or a member state of the EU.


SSL and/or TLS encryption


For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or
inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption
program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser
switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.


If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Encrypted payment transactions on this website


If you are under an obligation to share your payment information (e.g. account number if you give us the
authority to debit your bank account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based contract with us, this
information is required to process payments.


Payment transactions using common modes of paying (Visa/MasterCard, debit to your bank account) are
processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can recognize an encrypted connection by
checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the
appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.


If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read the payment information you
share with us.


Rejection of unsolicited e-mails


We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory
information to be provided in our Site Notice to send us promotional and information material that we have
not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal

action in the event of the unsolicited sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM messages.


 

4. Recording of data on this website


Cookies


Our websites and pages use what the industry refers to as “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that do not
cause any damage to your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session
cookies) or they are permanently archived on your device (permanent cookies). Session cookies are
automatically deleted once you terminate your visit. Permanent cookies remain archived on your device
until you actively delete them, or they are automatically eradicated by your web browser.

In some cases, it is possible that third-party cookies are stored on your device once you enter our site (third-
party cookies). These cookies enable you or us to take advantage of certain services offered by the third

party (e.g., cookies for the processing of payment services).


Cookies have a variety of functions. Many cookies are technically essential since certain website functions
would not work in the absence of the cookies (e.g., the shopping cart function or the display of videos). The
purpose of other cookies may be the analysis of user patterns or the display of promotional messages.


Cookies, which are required for the performance of electronic communication transactions, or for the
provision of certain functions you want to use (e.g., for the shopping cart function) or those that are
necessary for the optimization (required cookies) of the website (e.g., cookies that provide measurable
insights into the web audience), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless a different legal basis
is cited. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the storage of required cookies to ensure the
technically error free and optimized provision of the operator’s services. If your consent to the storage of the
cookies and similar recognition technologies has been requested, processing occurs exclusively on the basis
of the consent obtained (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG); this consent may be revoked at any time.


You have the option to set up your browser in such a manner that you will be notified any time cookies are
placed and to permit the acceptance of cookies only in specific cases. You may also exclude the acceptance of
cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the delete function for the automatic eradication of cookies
when the browser closes. If cookies are deactivated, the functions of this website may be limited.


In the event that third-party cookies are used or if cookies are used for analytical purposes, we will
separately notify you in conjunction with this Data Protection Policy and, if applicable, ask for your consent.

contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based
on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or
on your agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.


The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the
data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being
archived no longer exists (e.g., after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without
prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods.


Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax


If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name,
request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these
data on without your consent.


These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a
contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are
processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to us (Art.
6(1)(f) GDPR) or on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if it has been obtained; the consent can be
revoked at any time.


The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your

6. Newsletter


Newsletter data


If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on this website, we will need from you an e-mail
address as well as information that allow us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided
and consent to the receipt of the newsletter. No further data shall be collected or shall be collected only on a
voluntary basis. We shall use such data only for the sending of the requested information and shall not share
such data with any third parties.


The processing of the information entered into the newsletter subscription form shall occur exclusively on
the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You may revoke the consent you have given to the archiving of
data, the e-mail address, and the use of this information for the sending of the newsletter at any time, for
instance by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. This shall be without prejudice to the
lawfulness of any data processing transactions that have taken place to date.


The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you
unsubscribe from the newsletter or the newsletter service provider and deleted from the newsletter
distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to apply. We
reserve the right to delete or block e-mail addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own

interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate
interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is indefinite.

You may object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.


7. Plug-ins and Tools


YouTube with expanded data protection integration


Our website embeds videos of the website YouTube. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited
(“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.


We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that
YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video.
Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled
out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a
video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.


As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be
established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are
logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your
browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your
YouTube account.


Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your
device or comparable technologies for recognition (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way YouTube will be
able to obtain information about this website’s visitors. Among other things, this information will be used to
generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts
to commit fraud.


Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have
started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.


The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner.
Pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. If appropriate consent has been obtained, the
processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar the
consent includes the storage of cookies or the access to information in the user’s end device (e.g., device
fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

smooth, convenient, and secure payment transaction (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). Insofar as your consent is
requested for certain actions, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR is the legal basis for data processing; consent may be
revoked at any time for the future.
