We are pleased about your interest in our company and our products and services and would like you to feel secure when visiting our website with regard to the protection of your personal data. Because we take the protection of your data very seriously. Compliance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) is a matter of course for us.
As part of our duty to inform, we would like to make this privacy statement as transparent as possible. For this purpose, we present below the scope of the processing of your data, the use of tracking/analysis tools, cookies and other services and inform you about your rights.
If you have any further questions regarding the handling of your personal data, please do not hesitate to contact our data protection officer (see below for contact details).
1. Responsible party
Untere Pfaffensteigstr. 61a,
as the operator of this website (http://idemus.com), is the responsible body (controller) within the meaning of the GDPR, which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data, hereinafter “data”.
In the following, we would like to inform you about the processing of your personal data when visiting our website and using our content and services and first explain what is meant by “processing” of “personal data”:
“Personal data” according to the GDPR means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, IP address, location data or specific characteristics such as the genetic, economic and social identity of that natural person).
Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon data, whether or not by automatic means. This includes, in particular, collection, recording, organization, classification, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or making available, alignment, combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
3. Scope of the processing of personal data
In principle, it is not necessary for you to provide data in order to use our website. In certain cases, however, we need your name and address as well as other information so that we can provide the requested services.
The same applies, for example, to the sending of information material and ordered goods or to answering individual questions. Where this is necessary, we will point this out to you accordingly. In addition, we only process data that you provide to us voluntarily and, where applicable, data that we collect automatically when you visit our website (e.g. IP address and the names of the pages you access, the browser you use and your operating system, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files).
If you make use of services, we generally only collect the data that we need to provide the services. If we ask you for further data, this is voluntary information.
4. Purpose limitation of the processing of personal data
We process the data you provide in accordance with the principles of data economy and purpose limitation. The purpose limitation principle means that data is collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and may not be further processed in a way incompatible with those purposes. Further processing for archival purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes is not considered incompatible with the original purposes.
Basically, we process your data for the purpose of answering your inquiries, processing your orders or providing you with access to certain information or offers. In order to maintain customer relations, it may also be necessary for us or a service company commissioned by us to use this data to inform you about product offers or to conduct online surveys in order to better meet the tasks and requirements of our customers.
We will process the data you provide online only for the purposes disclosed to you.
5. Disclosure of personal data
Your data will only be passed on to third parties in exceptional cases:
- to external service providers acting on our behalf (order processors) if this is necessary for the purpose of implementing the contractual relationship,
- to state institutions and authorities if we are legally obliged to do so, or
- if you consent to this.
We conclude the corresponding agreements on commissioned processing with the commissioned processors on the basis of Art. 28 DS-GVO. The service companies commissioned by us are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO and the BDSG. The data passed on may only be used by our service providers to fulfill their task. Any other use of the information is not permitted and does not take place with any of the service providers entrusted by us.
The transmission and further processing of data to institutions and authorities entitled to receive information will only take place within the framework of the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision.
Beyond this, we do not pass on any data to third parties unless you have given your express consent.
Of course, we will respect your wishes if you do not want to provide us with your data to support our customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or market research purposes). We will neither sell your data to third parties nor market it in any other way unless you have given us your consent to do so.
6. Data transfer to a third country
As a matter of principle, we only process your personal data within Germany, the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).
If, in the course of using third-party services, data is disclosed or transferred to third parties in a third country, i.e. outside the EU or the EEA, and data is further processed, this will only be done on the basis of your consent, a legal obligation, our legitimate interests or if it is necessary for the fulfillment of our (pre)contractual obligations. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or allow the processing of data in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DS-GVO are met. This means that the processing is carried out, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU (e.g. for the USA by the “Privacy Shield”) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “EU standard contractual clauses”).
7. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain your consent for processing operations of personal data, the consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO constitutes the legal basis for the processing of your data.
When processing personal data that is required to fulfill the requested service, we refer to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO as the legal basis.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO forms the legal basis for the processing.
8. Data deletion and storage duration
We only store your data until the purpose has been fulfilled and no other legal storage obligations exist (e.g. storage obligations under commercial or tax law).
If you have given us your consent, we will store your data until you revoke your consent, provided there is no other legal basis for processing your data and no legal retention periods prevent deletion.
In addition, in individual cases, e.g. for evidentiary purposes, longer storage may be indicated for the defense/enforcement of civil or public law claims.

11.2 Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, which is a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.
