With the following information, we would like to give you as a "person concerned" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under data protection laws. In principle, it is possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you want to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.
Being responsible for data processing, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or by e-mail.
You can also take simple and easy-to-implement measures to protect yourself against unauthorized access to your data by third parties. For this reason, we would like to provide you with some tips on how to handle your data securely:
Passwords should consist of at least 12 characters and be chosen so that they cannot be easily guessed. Therefore, they should not contain common words from everyday life, your own name or names of relatives, but upper and lower case, numbers and special characters.
Responsible in terms of GDPR is:
SAFED France SAS I 17E Rue Alain Savary I 25000 Besançon I France
Representative of the responsible: Thomas Peinkofer - Managing Director

You can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with all questions and suggestions regarding data protection.
The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
1. Personal Data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
2. Person Concerned
Person concerned is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the responsible for data processing (our company).
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
4. Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific person without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
7. Order Processor
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the responsible.
A receiver is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
9. Third Party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the concerned person, the responsible, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the responsible or the processor.
Consent is any expression of will in the form of a declaration or other unambiguous affirmative action made voluntarily by the concerned person for the specific case in an informed manner and in an unambiguous manner, by which the concerned person indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR (in conjunction with Section 25 (1) TTDSG) serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only share your personal information with third parties if:
7.1 SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator.

Therefore, the data and information collected will be used by us for statistical purposes only and for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a concerned person.The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.

10.1 Newsletter dispatch to existing customers
If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers for similar goods or services, such as those already purchased, from our range by e-mail. In this respect, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalized direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service with which the newsletter dispatch can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany or Ireland.Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyze the behavior of newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyze how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis by CleverReach newsletter, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/. The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
So that we can also communicate with you in social networks and inform you about our services, we are represented there with our own pages. If you visit one of our social media pages, we are jointly responsible with the provider of the respective social media platform within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR with regard to the processing operations triggered thereby which concern personal data.
We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers. As a precaution, we therefore point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use may therefore involve data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights, e.g. to information, deletion, objection, etc., and the processing in the social networks often takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behavior by the providers, without this being able to be influenced by us. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behavior is directly assigned to your own member profile of the social networks (if you are logged in here).The described processing operations of personal data are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to be able to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give your consent to data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. Art. 7 GDPR.
As we do not have access to the providers' databases, we would like to point out that it is best to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, correction, deletion, etc.) directly with the respective provider. Further information on the processing of your data in the social networks and the possibility of making use of your right of objection or revocation (so-called opt-out), we have listed below at the respective provider of social networks used by us:

13.2 Google Photos
We use the online service of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to store images that are embedded on our homepage.
Embedding is the integration of a certain foreign content (text, video or image data) that is provided by another website (Google Photos) and then appears on our own website (our website). For embedding, a so-called embedding code is used. If an embedding code has been integrated by us, the external content from Google Photos is displayed immediately by default as soon as one of our web pages is visited.

Furthermore, Google Photos records our website, the browser type used, the browser language, the time and the length of the access. In addition, Google Photos may collect information about which of our subpages you visited and which links were clicked, as well as other interactions you performed while visiting our site. This data may be stored and analyzed by Google Photos.
These processing operations are carried out exclusively upon the granting of explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.

By using the Google Tag Manager, we can automatically track which button, link or personalized image you have actively clicked on and can then record which contents of our website are of particular interest to you.
The tool also triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have made a deactivation at the domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
