declaración de protección de datos
Information on the collection, processing and use of your personal data.
Your confidence in the correct and responsible handling of your data is absolutely essential for the success of our online offerings. Data protection is therefore of great importance to us. The collection, processing (this includes saving, changing, transmitting, blocking and deleting) and use of your personal data will only occur in accordance with the currently applicable data protection regulations and provisions.
We would like to briefly introduce our principles on the collection, processing and use of your personal data.
§ 1 Personal Data
Personal data refers to specific details about personal or factual characteristics relating to a specific or specifiable natural person, for example, a person’s name and address as well as site usage details such as the domain name and IP address. Such data may be requested when you participate in a survey or a prize draw, or when you subscribe to a newsletter (see § 2 below) and/or by visiting our website (see §§. 3 and 4).
§ 2 The collection, processing and use of personal data
In general, no personal data is collected, processes and/or saved when you visit the Catrice website. If you are asked to provide your name, e-mail address or any other personal information for special offers (e.g., when participating in a survey or a prize draw as well as when subscribing to a newsletter), we will inform you about the collection, processing and use of such data accordingly and request your prior consent. Insofar as personal data is collected, processed and used, cosnova will adhere to the German data protection regulations. Personal data will not be disclosed to third parties without the consent of the person concerned unless we are required to do so by law on the basis of a court order or an official decree.
The following are examples of cases in which we may need to collect, process and use your personal data:
Prize Draws: Should you decide to participate in one of our prize draws, we will ask you to provide (1) your name as well as (2) your date of birth, (3) your e-mail address, (4) your telephone number and/or (5) your postal address. We do this so that we are able to inform you in case you win the contest and also in order to ensure that each participant only enters the prize draw once. Attempts to manipulate prize draws by entering or voting multiple times may lead to elimination from the contest or blocking of the IP address to prevent access to the Catrice website.
Special Services: Should you make use of any other special services that require a registration, we will collect, process and use your personal data as required in order to provide you with the particular service in question.
§ 3 Site Usage Data
When you visit our website, we will temporarily record the domain name or the IP address of the user’s computer, the client file requests (file name and URL), the http response code, the internet page from which you are visiting us as well as the date and time of your visit for a period of four (4) working days. The recording is merely carried out to detect malfunctions or a possible misuse of our online offerings and our telecommunication services/systems, and only insofar as it is necessary in order to establish further connections and/or for billing purposes. An evaluation of your usage data to create a personal user profile will not take place. In case of malfunction or misuse, we reserve the right to report this to the prosecuting authorities. Any further use or transmittal of your usage data to third parties will not occur.

If you do not wish to make use of the advantages of cookies, you can also use our website without cookies. Every www browser can be configured to reject cookies. In this case, we would like to call to your attention that the rejection of functional cookies might make use of the Catrice website more difficult as some functions may only be available when the use of functional cookies is permitted.

§ 6 Waiver of Liability for Websites provided by Partners
On our sites, we refer to several cooperation partners who themselves offer websites and web services. These partners generally have their own data protection statements.
