With each new call or visit to the website, the current, retrievable version applies.

Should there be any contradictions between this data protection declaration and the other applicable contractual or business terms of Gentle Skin Beauty Bar, the provisions of this data protection declaration shall take precedence.

2 Nature and purpose of the data collected

The term "personal data" or "personally identifiable information" as used in this Privacy Policy includes information from which customers can be personally identified.The processing of personal data means any handling of personal data, such as collecting, using, storing, disclosing, transmitting or deleting the data.Gentle Skin Beauty Bar automatically collects precisely the personal data when the customer interacts with the website or uses the online shop. 

On the other hand, personal data provided by a customer (e.g. by making contact, creating a user profile or customer account) is recorded automatically or manually.

2.1 Information Collected AutomaticallyWhen visiting the Gentle Skin Beauty Bar website, statistical visitor data is automatically collected on which parts of the website the customer visits. Each time a website is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, the customer's IP address, the date and time of the call, the browser used, the operating system, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the retrieval. In this context, it is sometimes necessary for so-called cookies (see Section 4 below) to be used.

This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer.

2.2 Data when interacting with Gentle Skin Beauty Bar, for contract processing, contact and opening a customer account

Gentle Skin Beauty Bar does not automatically collect personal information from customers, such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address.

On the other hand, personal data is collected from customers if a customer voluntarily provides this as part of an order or when contacting Gentle Skin Beauty Bar (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, since Gentle Skin Beauty Bar needs the data in these cases to process the contract or to process the contact and without this information the order or the contact cannot be sent. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

If a customer decides to open a customer account, Gentle Skin Beauty Bar uses the personal data for the purpose of opening a customer account. The mandatory information requested during registration must be given in full, otherwise Gentle Skin Beauty Bar can reject the registration. Gentle Skin Beauty Bar uses the collected personal data only for the purpose of using the online shop or the respective offer or service for which the customer has registered. In addition, Gentle Skin Beauty Bar can use the customer's e-mail address to inform them about important changes, such as the scope of the offer, or technically necessary changes.

After the contract has been fully processed or after the customer account has been deleted, the customer's data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the tax and commercial retention periods have expired, unless the customer has expressly consented to further use of the data or Gentle Skin Beauty Bar itself reserves the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law. The customer account can be deleted at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the contact details given below (see Section 9 below) or using a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.

3 Legal basis for collecting and processing personal data

The legal basis for the collection and processing of the customer's personal data depends on the respective purpose of the data processing in each individual case. In particular, the following come into question:

 the protection of the legitimate interests of Gentle Skin Beauty Bar, provided that the interests of the customer or fundamental rights or freedoms are not unreasonably affected;

 the conclusion or performance of a contract; or

 The customer's consent at the time the personal data was recorded. The customer can revoke his consent at any time.
