Welcome to the website SONNENBERG.BERLIN, the Kaufhaus für Hund & Katz (hereinafter "SONNENBERG.BERLIN" or "we").
For us, the issue of privacy has a very high priority. A use of the internet pages of SONNENBERG.BERLIN is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if you wish to use specific services of our company through our website (for example, orders via our shop), processing of personal data may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will in principle obtain your consent.
SONNENBERG.BERLIN has taken technical and organizational measures to ensure the greatest possible protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection can not be guaranteed. For this reason, every user of our online services is free to transfer personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
1. Name and contact details of the controller
Responsible person within the meaning of the DS-GVO, other data protection laws valid in the member states of the European Union and other regulations with data protection character is:
Lietzenburger Straße 62
Telefon: 030 – 8870 9640
2. Purposes and legal basis of data processing
2.1 If you comply
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO provides us with a legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose.
2.2 When it comes to fulfilling a contract
If the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a contract of which you are a party, as described e.g. In the case of processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of inquiries about our products or services, in particular about the functionalities provided on this website.
2.3 If we are legally obliged
If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO.
2.4 When it comes to legitimate interests on our part
Finally, processing operations could also be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permitted because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, 2 DS-GVO).
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of our company and our employees.
