Data protection declaration
We are conscious of the fact that the safe handling of your personal data is of utmost importance. Protecting the data you submit and the correct use of such data is our top priority, which is why, as a matter of course, we act strictly in compliance with the German Data Protection Act as well as the German Telemedia Act. We would like to inform you about the sort of data we save, when and how we use it. This data protection declaration does not apply to related links to companies which are not a part of the uvex group.
1. Data collection
Personal data is only collected if you disclose it voluntarily for a specific purpose. Without a separate consent, we will only use your data for the specific purpose for which you submitted it to us. After this purpose has been fulfilled, your data is blocked against further use and deleted after expiration of all provisions according to tax and commerce laws unless you gave your express consent to your data being used for another purpose.
3. Data processing
Personal data which you submitted via our website or by email will only be used to correspond with you and is exclusively used for the purpose for which you submitted the data. Submitted data will only be forwarded to relevant departments or, if necessary, to other companies within the uvex group. Your data will be passed on to the commissioned shipping company if this is necessary for delivery purposes for the execution of the contract. We provide your payment data to the financial institution commissioned with processing your payment.
We declare that your personal data will not otherwise be forwarded to third parties unless we are legally required to do so.

6. Google Analytics
You can prohibit data collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. This creates an opt-out cookie, which prevents your data from being collected when you visit this website in future.
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIp" to ensure an anonymised collection of IP addresses ("IP masking"). As a rule we are not able, nor do we intend, to relate the data to a specific person. The anonymised data is merely gathered in order to help us continuously improve our website. There is no further data interpretation and data will not be shared with third parties.
7. Google Remarketing
We use Google Remarketing on our websites, which is a web advertisement service by Google Inc. This service enables interest-related advertising, as users who visit websites and use offers can be shown appropriate promotional offers using the Google Partner network. Google does this using cookies. These are small text files consisting of a set of numbers (cookie ID) which Google deposits and stores on your computer. Google uses these cookies to recognise your browser when it visits other websites and to show advertisements which are related to your interests. Where applicable, the information generated by the cookie will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. Your browser’s IP address may also be used to display adverts via Google.
Please note that Google Remarketing is a service from an independent third party and we have no influence over its data handling processes. For more information on the way Google handles collected data and to view Google’s data protection regulations, see: https://www.google.de/intl/en-GB/policies/.
If you do not wish to receive interest-based advertising you can prevent Google from saving cookies by changing the corresponding settings in your browser software.
You can prohibit the use of relevant cookies by Google for this purpose at any time with future effect by deactivating the use of relevant cookies according to the instructions on the website: http://www.google.com/settings/ads.
8. Facebook pixel visitor tracking
If you have given your express consent to the use of Facebook’s pixel visitor tracking we will use Facebook Inc.’s (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA [“Facebook”]) pixel visitor tracking on our website. With pixel visitor tracking, once a user has been sent to a supplier’s website by clicking on a Facebook advert, their behaviour can be followed. This process allows the efficacy of Facebook adverts to be assessed for statistical marketing purposes and can help to optimise future advertising measures.
The data collected is anonymous so cannot be used to find out the user’s identity. However, the data is saved and processed by Facebook, meaning that there could be a link to the corresponding user profile and Facebook may use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with its own data use guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can allow Facebook and its partners to place advertising both within and outside of Facebook. Cookies can be saved on your computer for this purpose.
Consent to the use of pixel visitor tracking may only be given by users aged over 13 years old. If you are younger than this, please ask for permission from your parent or guardian.

10. Right to information, correction, blocking or deletion
In accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act, you have the right to information on the data collected about yourself as well as, where applicable, the right to correction, blocking or deletion of your data.
