This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration.

If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed. This is the case when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

4.2 WhatsApp Business
We offer visitors to our website the possibility to contact us via the messaging service WhatsApp of WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. For this purpose, we use the so-called "business version" of WhatsApp.

If you contact us via WhatsApp on the occasion of a specific transaction (for example, an order placed), we store and use the mobile phone number you use on WhatsApp as well as - if provided - your first and last name in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO to process and respond to your request. On the basis of the same legal basis, we may ask you to provide further data (order number, customer number, address or email address) via WhatsApp in order to be able to assign your request to a specific process.

If you use our WhatsApp contact for general enquiries (e.g. about the range of services, availability or our website), we store and use the mobile phone number you use on WhatsApp and - if provided - your first name and surname in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO based on our legitimate interest in providing the requested information efficiently and promptly. Your data will only be used to respond to your request via WhatsApp. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

Please note that WhatsApp Business obtains access to the address book of the mobile device we use for this purpose and automatically transfers telephone numbers stored in the address book to a server of the parent company Meta Platforms Inc. in the USA. For the operation of our WhatsApp Business account, we use a mobile end device in whose address book only the WhatsApp contact data of those users who have also contacted us via WhatsApp are stored.

This ensures that every person whose WhatsApp contact data is stored in our address book has already consented to the transmission of their WhatsApp telephone number from the address books of their chat contacts in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO when using the app on their device for the first time by accepting the WhatsApp terms of use. A transmission of data of such users who do not use WhatsApp and/or have not contacted us via WhatsApp is excluded in this respect.

9.1 billiger.de Sales Tracking
This website uses billiger.de Sales Tracking, a tracking technology of solute.de GmbH, Zeppelinstraße 15, D-76185 Karlsruhe, Germany, to track and evaluate certain user actions that were performed after a redirect from billiger.de to our website. For this purpose, a so-called Javascript-based tracking pixel is implemented in our order confirmation pages, which can track user actions as a single-pixel file through interaction with billiger.de.

The tracking pixel establishes a connection between a user click on an advertisement (touch point) on billiger.de and a completed order on our website. When an order is completed, your browser sends an HTTP request to the billiger.de server via the pixel, with which certain information is transmitted.

This information includes the IP address of the end device (this IP address is anonymized by billiger.de before it is stored), HTTP header (data packet automatically transmitted by your browser containing various technical information) and the time of the request. In addition, the order number and the shopping basket value of your order are also transmitted and stored by billiger.de. This information is only recorded and transmitted to and stored by billiger.de if an order is actually placed after being forwarded from billiger.de to our website.

Insofar as the transmission of this information to billiger.de includes personal user data, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical evaluation of the success of product advertisements on billiger.de and the purchasing behavior of users and thus serves to optimize our online offering.

Alternatively, you can also prevent the execution of JavaScript code by installing a JavaScript blocker (e.g. https://noscript.net/ or https://www.ghostery.com). In this case, however, it is very likely that you will not be able to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In this way, we pursue the aim of displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.

The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device.

Clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

The use of Google Ads may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

GMP uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. The processing is based on our legitimate interest in the optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

In addition, GMP can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests.

According to Google, GMP cookies do not contain any personal information.

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined on the basis of the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and - if relevant - additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law).
When processing personal data on the basis of explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, this data is stored until the data subject revokes his/her consent.

If there are statutory retention periods for data that is processed within the scope of legal or quasi-legal obligations on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, this data will be routinely deleted after expiry of the retention periods, insofar as it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract and/or there is no justified interest on our part in the continued storage.

When processing personal data for the purpose of direct marketing on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, this data is stored until the data subject exercises his/her right to object in accordance with Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.

Unless otherwise indicated in the other information in this statement on specific processing situations, stored personal data are otherwise deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
