We make every effort to handle your personal data with the utmost confidentiality, and in full accordance with privacy law. Personal data is information that enables us or third parties to identify you as an individual. This may include a (dynamic) IP address, which is sufficient to identify you if, for example, internet service providers have the means to do so.
1. Data collected, processed and used with consent
1.1 When you buy our products, or create a customer account, you are obliged to enter certain personal details (your full name, your phone number and email address). We only use this information to offer you our services (delivery of products, managing customer bank details, etc.), and it is only processed and stored for this purpose. This data will never be stored for any longer than is allowed by law (though there also may be a legal obligation to store certain data).
1.2 Nevertheless, you can also visit our website without entering any of the data listed above; if you want to browse our product range without making a binding purchase, for example. Here we will only store your website usage data (e.g. date/time of visit, internet service provider) in so-called server log files, so that we can keep our website running smoothly and optimise our offering. This information does not allow us to identify you.
2. Payment methods
2.2 When choosing the instant bank transfer option, you will be redirected to the website of the online provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich, Germany after submitting your order. After you have been verified, your personal data and account details will be sent to SOFORT GmbH. This information will be used by SOFORT GmbH to enable it – amongst other things – to check your balance. We have no control over the transfer of this data. Please therefore refer to the privacy guidelines of SOFORT GmbH, which you will be specifically advised about when using the service.
2.3 When choosing the credit card payment option, you will be sending your credit card details to us when you place your order. We will then ask the credit card company to initiate the payment transaction. The payment transaction is carried out automatically by the credit card company and your card will be charged. At the same time, certain data will be sent to the relevant credit card company and processed. We have absolutely no control over this process.
On our website, you have the option of signing up to the neubau newsletter. To do so, you will need to submit your name and email address. The neubau newsletter keeps you up to date with the latest products and industry trends and will only be sent to the email addresses provided. If you no longer want to receive the newsletter, you can of course unsubscribe at any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe from newsletter” button after you receive it. The data stored for the purposes of sending you the newsletter will be deleted – as long as we are not legally required to do otherwise – after unsubscribing. We will never send you electronic marketing without your prior consent (registration).
4.1 We use small text files called “cookies” that are stored on your computer when you visit our website. These help us to optimise our service to make it more user-friendly, improve the design and make it more secure. In many cases, the cookies installed will be “session cookies”, which will be automatically deleted as soon as your current browser session is over. Other cookies (e.g. storing your language preferences) will be stored for a longer period, or until you delete them manually. Cookies contain absolutely no personal data.
4.2 Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but you have the option of changing your browser preferences so that cookies are either generally rejected or only specific kinds are accepted (e.g. rejection of third-party cookies). If you change the cookies settings in your browser, you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of our website. You can find out how to change the system settings for the most popular browsers using the following links:

5. Google Analytics
5.2 Google is a participant of the EU-US Privacy Shield, which obliges a company to uphold the agreement and constantly maintain European data protection standards. A list of companies with Privacy Shield certification can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.
5.3 Using the process described in Point 4, you can set up your browser preferences to prevent it from storing cookies (or restrict third-party cookies only). In addition, you can also prevent Google from collecting and processing data gained from cookies relating to your website usage (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the corresponding browser plugin (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). Alternatively, you can also click here to choose a so-called cookie opt-out that is saved on your device and prevents Google Analytics from collecting data. You will need to repeat this step again if you delete all your cookies.
5.4 You can find out more information regarding privacy and Google Analytics, and what options you have, here: www.google.at/intl/de_ALL/analytics/learn/privacy.
6. Data transfer; Right of information, correction and deletion
6.2 In accordance with public privacy law, you have a right to find out — at any time and free of charge — which data we have collected from you, and subsequently stored and processed. You can at any time request any incorrect data to be corrected, and for certain transmitted data to be deleted. You can also withdraw any prior consent you have given us to process your data for the future. We will take the appropriate steps immediately after receiving your request.
