Parties

The following is a legal agreement ("Contract", "Agreement") between You ("You") and the owners and operators of xox interactive ("xox interactive", "We", "Us").

General

Your personal data (e.g. title, name, house address, e-mail address, phone number, bank details, credit card number) are processed by us only in accordance with the provisions of German data privacy laws. The following provisions describe the type, scope and purpose of collecting, processing and utilizing personal data. This data privacy policy applies only to our web pages. If links on our pages route you to other pages, please inquire there about how your data are handled in such cases.

Inventory Data / Handling of Personal Data

(1) Personal data are information which can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to one person. This includes the name, email address, or telephone number. However, data on preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone can be part of personal data. Personal data are only collected by us, used and passed on, if permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection or its passing by.

(2) Your personal data, insofar as these are necessary for this contractual relationship (inventory data) in terms of its establishment, organization of content and modifications, are used exclusively for fulfilling the contract. For goods to be delivered, for instance, your name and address must be relayed to the supplier of the goods.

(3) Without your explicit consent or a legal basis, your personal data are not passed on to third parties outside the scope of fulfilling this contract. After completion of the contract, your data are blocked against further use. After expiry of deadlines as per tax-related and commercial regulations, these data are deleted unless you have expressly consented to their further use.

Data Protection

Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data, such as e-mails, via the Internet, because it is impossible to safeguard completely against unauthorized access by third parties. Nevertheless, we shall safeguard your data, subject to this limitation. In particular, personal information will be transmitted via the Internet only if it does not infringe upon third-party rights, unless the respective party has given its prior consent in view of such security risks. Accordingly, as the Web site provider, we shall not be held liable for any damages incurred as a consequence of such security risks or for any related acts of omission on our part.

We oppose the use of any available contact information by a third party for sending unsolicited advertisements. As the Web site provider, we reserve the express right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.

Access Data/ Server Log Files

xox interactive (or his webspace provider) collects data on each access to the website (so called server log files). The access data includes:

Name of the requested Web page, file, date and time of the access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the log information only for statistical analysis for the purpose of the operation, security and optimization of the website. However, the provider retains the right, to check the log file data, if there is a legitimate suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence.

Contacting Us

When contacting us (for example, via contact form or e-mail), the information of the user is saved for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

Comments and Contributions

When users leave comments on the blog or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the safety of the provider, in case anyone writes unlawful contents in comments and contributions (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider may be prosecuted even for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Comment Subscriptions

The succession comments can be subscribed by users. The subscription is always based only on individual contributions and thus a high e-mail traffic is not expected. Still use subscriptions with care. Subscriptions are terminated by deletion of your user account. Please get in contact with us for the deletion of your account. You can always create a new user account.

Integration of Services and Content of Third Parties

It may happen that within this online offer / website other third party content is integrated from other websites, such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics. This always assumes that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party") knows / sees the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is required for the presentation of such content. We strive to use only such content, whose respective providers are using the IP address only for the delivery of content. However, we have no control, if the third-party saves the IP address for statistical purposes. Where this is known to us, we will inform the users about it.
