Data protection

1. General

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our website. Please read the privacy statement contained in this document, as you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

2. Data protection

1. When you visit the ALSO website, both general information and personal data are collected and collected automatically (not through a registration). We use the personal data in detail to process the orders, to deliver the goods, to check the creditworthiness, to process the payment, to prevent misuse of our website and to inform you about orders, products, services and offers. We collect data on your online interactions with our company (eg the pages you visit, the links and advertisements you clicked). The web servers used store your IP address by default (for example, the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the sites you visit). This information is used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, content and functionalities of our website. As far as data is passed on to external service providers, we ensure by technical and organizational measures that the provisions of data protection are complied with.

2. For ALSO the careful handling of personal data is of central importance. We adhere strictly to the statutory provisions both in the collection of the data, as well as in the processing and use of the data. In certain cases (eg participation in games, contact with us, delivery of your application documents, use of the protected area, etc.), you voluntarily disclose some of your personal data. You therefore agree that ALSO will use your transmitted personal data to process the respective transaction or, where appropriate, your address and order data for marketing purposes, make these other companies available within the ALSO group or communicate your personal data to third parties. If third parties have access to this data, the protection of your personal data is always ensured by appropriate contracts and purpose restrictions. You may, of course, revoke the permission to use and process your data, especially for marketing purposes, by sending us an appropriate message. You can do this by sending an e-mail to privacy@also.com.

3. We store personal data for as long as is necessary to carry out a service which you have requested or to which you have given your consent, provided that no other legal obligations exist such as, for example, storage and tax retention periods.

4. ALSO has taken technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against manipulation, loss, destruction and access by unauthorized persons. These measures are continuously updated and improved according to the technological development. Your personal data will be transferred from our computer to our server and encrypted via the Internet. The actual encryption level depends on your computer. Use the latest browser version so you can encrypt your data with 128 bits.

5. The ALSO Group uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that the web server places in the browser of your computer in several places and can be identified during a subsequent visit of the website. Our used cookies do not collect any personal data (except for the recording of personal data after login in the login area, such as customer number), they do not cause any damage to their computer and contain no viruses. During the use of our Internet offer, we place on the hard disk of your computer, above all, so-called "session cookies", which are only relevant for your visit to our website. These cookies are used exclusively for connection control and navigation, and allow you to surf the Internet in a user-friendly manner. For example, you "remember" certain settings during the session and save repeated entries. Session cookies are deleted when you exit your browser session. We also use long-lasting (persistent) cookies, which allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us.

Your browser will provide you with a warning when a web server on your computer wants to set a cookie. You can accept or reject cookies.
