If you have any questions or comments about our data protection regulations, please do not hesitate to contact us at the email address below.

1. Overview

The following notes on data security inform you about the type and scope of processing of so-called personal data by Circle Products GmbH, Lindower Str. 18, 13347 Berlin (hereinafter referred to as „Coffee Circle“, „we“, „us“ or „our“). Personal data is information that is or can be directly or indirectly assigned to you as an individual. The use of our websites www.coffeecircle.com, www.coffeecircle.at and www.coffeecircle.ch, as well as all related sites, applications and services (collectively referred to as „Websites“) are subject to these data protection regulations. By creating a customer account, placing orders as a guest and as an existing customer, you agree to these data protection regulations by means of a corresponding declaration and expressly consent to the processing, use and disclosure of your personal data in the manner described here.

Data processing by Coffee Circle can essentially be divided into two categories:

  • For the purpose of executing or preparing the contract, all data necessary for the execution of a sales contract with Coffee Circle will be processed. If external service providers are also involved in the execution of the contract, e.g. payment service providers, shipping service providers, optimisation services, hosters, etc., your data will be passed on to them to the extent necessary in each case.
  • When you access our websites, various information is exchanged between your device and our server or the server of the services we use. This may also involve personal data. The information collected in this way is used, inter alia, to further optimise our websites.

According to the requirements of the GDPR, you have various rights which you can assert against us. These include the right to object to selected data processing, in particular data processing for advertising purposes. The option to object is highlighted in each case so that it is easier to find. Further information about your rights can be found below in an extra paragraph and additionally in the individual descriptions of the respective data processing. As a matter of principle, we process personal data only in accordance with the applicable statutory storage and safekeeping obligations or until the cessation of its intended purpose.

Due to the protection of minors and data privacy, we have decided that our offer should only be available to persons over the age of 16. If you have not yet reached this minimum age, you can only make use of our offers if and insofar as your parents have expressly consented to this and you have provided us with sufficient proof of this consent.

The purpose and scope of the data collection by the respective service and the further processing and use of this data, as well as your rights and setting options in this regard to protect your privacy, can be found in the respective data protection information of the service through which you have set up your account, e.g. Facebook.

If you file an objection, we will block the contact address concerned from further advertising data processing. We will process your objection as quickly as possible and implement the appropriate blocking measures immediately after review. We would like to point out that, in exceptional cases, even after we have received your objection, you may still receive such information or product recommendations. This is only due to technical reasons and does not mean that we will not implement your objection. Thank you very much for your understanding

3.4 Data processing on conclusion of the contract, for implementation and termination of the contract

We love coffee and see ourselves as ambassadors for this wonderful bean. Our goal is to make as many people as possible happy with our products.

  • email address
  • first name and surname, if applicable
  • delivery or residential address

The legal basis of this processing activity is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) and b) GDPR. Insofar as we do not use your contact data for customer support or customer care (see 3.3), we store the data collected for contract processing until the cessation of its intended purpose or until the expiry of possible contractual rights of revocation, warranty and guarantee. After the expiry of this period, we will retain the personal data required by law for the periods specified by law. For this period (usually six to ten years from the conclusion of the contract), the data will be processed again solely in the case of verification by the tax authorities.

4. Data processing for the provision of our services

In the following you will find information about the data processing required for the provision of our services:

4.1 Website Optimisation

We will not sell or rent your data to any third party for marketing purposes without your explicit consent. Only in order to provide our customers with the best possible customer experience, to periodically improve the quality of our services and to protect the interests of our customers we may disclose certain information to third parties under certain circumstances. However, the disclosure will always be subject to strict restrictions as described below:

4.2 Cookies – General Information

We use so-called cookies on our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our interest in optimising our offers is thereby deemed justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. Cookies are small files which are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you use our services. Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal device and do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware. The cookie is used to store information that arises in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we will immediately receive information about your identity.

On the one hand, the use of cookies serves to make the use of our offer more convenient for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to detect whether you have already visited individual pages on our website or have already logged in with your customer account. If you use our offer again at a later point in time, the cookie will automatically recognise that you have previously accessed our site and which entries and settings you made, thus saving you from having to enter them again. In addition, we also use temporary cookies for the purpose of enhancing usability, which are stored on your terminal for a specified period of time. These are automatically deleted when you leave our site. If you already have a customer account and are logged in, the information stored in the cookies will be assigned to your customer account.

On the other hand, we also use cookies to collect statistics on the use of our offers and to evaluate them for optimisation purposes, as well as to display information specifically tailored to you. These cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already visited our site when you visit it again. They are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. You can also use the Network Advertising Initiative’s Opt-out-Option. Please note that if you disable cookies completely, the full functionality of our offers may not be available to you. The length of time cookies are stored depends on their purpose and varies accordingly.

4.3 Google Analytics

For the purpose of tailoring our offer to meet demand and for continuous optimisation, we use Google Analytics, the analysis service of Google Inc. („Google“), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Google uses cookies to create pseudonymised user profiles.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of our web pages, such as:

  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (previously visited page),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of server request,

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The information is used to evaluate the use of our offers, to compile reports on our activities and to provide other services related to the use of our offers for the purposes of market research and needs-based design. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Coffee Circle. Under no circumstances will your IP-address be combined with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised, so that an assignment is not possible (so-called IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies in advance by setting your browser software accordingly or object to further processing via the cookie by clicking the Opt-Out link. However, we would like to point out that in this case, the full functionality of our offers may not be available to you. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of our services (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing this browser extension.

4.4 Google Tag Manager

With the Google Tag Manager we manage website tags (website code). These make it easier for us to manage and develop our offering and shorten your loading time. The Google Tag Manager only implements website code. The Google Tag Manager does not set cookies and does not collect any personal data. The tool simply integrates the website code that we have stored elsewhere, which may be used to record data. The tool thus serves only to facilitate the control of the respective code, but does not itself access the data processed by the code. We will inform you about all integrated tags in this privacy policy. Further information about the Google Tag Manager and the usage guidelines can be found on the Google pages.

4.5 Fullstory

For the purpose of customising and continually optimising our websites to meet your needs, we use, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, the analysis service FullStory, a service provided by FullStory Inc. (hereinafter referred to as „FullStory“), 120 Ottley Dr. NE, Atlanta, GA 30324, USA. FullStory stores and collects data in anonymous form using cookies.

4.6 Heap

For the purpose of customising and continually optimising our websites to meet your needs, we use the Heap analysis service, a web analysis service of Heap Analytics Inc.

Please click on the link below for more information about Heap Analytics‘ Privacy Policy.

4.7 Bugsnag

We want to offer our visitors the best possible experience, which is why we are constantly improving and developing our websites. Nevertheless, it is impossible to eliminate all malfunctions, e.g. due to programming errors, from the outset. We therefore use Bugsnag, a technical error analysis tool from Bugsnag Inc. (hereinafter „Bugsnag“), 939 Harrison St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The tool helps us to analyse, evaluate and categorise errors. In order to improve the accessibility and technical stability of our websites by monitoring functionality, system stability and code error detection, we may automatically send the following information to Bugsnag in the event of a software error:

  • device information (operating system, browser version, browser type),
  • the IP address of the device used,
  • details of the page visited at the time of the error,
  • time at which the error occurred.

The legal basis for the aforementioned processing operations is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We do not evaluate this data for advertising purposes. The data will be collected anonymously without any reference to individuals and will be subsequently deleted.

This analysis helps us to further improve our website and fix undetected code errors. This processing is in our legitimate interest, as the data is used solely for the purpose of error identification and analysis. You can prevent the installation of cookies in advance by setting your browser software accordingly or object to this processing by deleting cookies in your browser settings. For more information on data processing and how Bugsnag works, please refer to Bugsnag’s privacy policy.

In order to measure, customise and optimise our Facebook campaigns, we use the so-called Facebook Pixel from Facebook Ireland Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as „Facebook“), 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. This pixel is embedded in the code of our web pages and enables us to ensure that the Facebook ads we initiate are only displayed to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our services. This ensures that our Facebook ads reflect the potential interest of each user and that our users are not bothered by irrelevant content. Additionally, it enables us to track the actions of Facebook users after they have seen or clicked on one of our Facebook ads. This helps us accurately measure the conversion of each campaign for statistical, market research and billing purposes. Through the use of the Facebook Pixel, the following information is processed:

  • timestamp,
  • URL,
  • campaign-related information (in particular, specification of the impression, form field and activated button).

The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. According to recital 47 of the GDPR, the processing of such data for behavioural and interest-based advertising purposes is to be regarded as our recognised legitimate interest. The data is stored in accordance with the statutory retention periods and then automatically deleted. Please be advised that if you have a Facebook account, this information may be stored and processed by Facebook and may be used by Facebook for their own promotional purposes in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy. More information about Facebook Pixel can be found here. The processing of your data in connection with Facebook is performed on the basis of your consent. You can opt out of this particular data processing at any time by either changing your Facebook settings accordingly or simply informing us that you do not wish such processing to take place in the future. To do this, please use the contact information provided by our data protection officer. Please be aware that the declared objection only applies to the device used and has no influence on the legitimacy of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent prior to the revocation.

Each Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. As a result, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through the advertisers‘ websites.

4.15 Trusted Shops

To display our Trusted Shops seal of approval and collected customer reviews as well as to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after they have placed an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is integrated on this website. This serves the protection of our interests in optimal marketing of our offer, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The Trustbadge and associated advertised services are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne.

When the Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains information such as your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the access. These access data are not evaluated and are automatically overwritten no later than seven days after the conclusion of your page visit.

Further personal data will only be transferred to Trusted Shops if you have consented to this, have decided after completing an order that you wish to use Trusted Shops products or have already registered for use. In this case the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.

The NPS and associated advertising services are offered by zenloop GmbH, Brunnenstraße 196, 10119 Berlin.

When you submit a rating, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file which contains information such as your IP address, the date and time of the request, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request.

5. Recipients outside the EU

As described above, data may also be transmitted to recipients based outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. This applies in particular to the aforementioned processing of analysis or targeting technologies which may involve the transmission of data to the servers of our service providers. Other recipients may be affiliated service providers that we use to provision our services, e.g. hosters, CRM tools and analysis service providers. These servers may be located outside the EU, particularly in the USA. We take the utmost care that these service providers guarantee data protection standards equivalent to those of the GDPR and that the applicable guidelines are complied with. We therefore only work with service providers who are certified according to the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield. For this certification, the EU Commission has determined the adequacy of the level of data protection in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR under the file number C/2016/4176. The use of these certified service providers thus meets the European standards for legally compliant data processing. In addition, we have obtained suitable contractual guarantees from all service providers domiciled in other EU countries which guarantee compliance with these EU standards and the enforcement of the rights of the parties concerned, e.g. on the basis of so-called standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

The above general right of objection applies to all processing purposes described in these data protection regulations which are processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In contrast to the special right of objection to data processing for advertising purposes (see 3.3), under the GDPR we are only obliged to implement such a general objection if you give us reasons of overriding importance (e.g. a possible danger to life or health). There is also the option to contact the responsible supervisory authority, the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Friedrichstr. 219, 10969 Berlin.

7. Data Security

We use the highest standards of information security for our infrastructure and the processing of your data. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption and physical access controls to our buildings and files. We authorise access to our customers‘ personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.

Additionally, all data personally submitted by you, including your payment details, is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL is a secure and proven standard that is also used for online banking. You can recognize a secure SSL connection by the s attached to the http (i.e. https:/…) in the address bar of your browser or by the lock icon at the bottom of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously monitored in line with technological developments, are regularly adapted to reflect the respective risk and are, where necessary, upgraded.
