Our privacy statement for this website conformable Article 13 EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR)

Thank you for your visit to our website and your interest in our development of exceptional designs for card and paper products and gifts. We takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and we want you to feel safe and comfortable when visiting our website. In the following text, we provide you with comprehensive information on how we handle your data.

Collection, processing and utilisation of user data from our website

You can basically use our website without disclosing your identity. For the purpose of providing and ensuring the security of our internet service, each time you access our website the so-called user data is transmitted by your browser to the server of our internet provider (1&1 Internet SE) at a location in Germany. The following data is collected during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of access
  • URL of the referring website
  • File retrieved
  • Volume of data sent
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system
  • IP address

For technical security reasons, particularly to prevent attempts to attack the web server, this data is logged for a short time by the internet provider in compliance with data protection regulations: the data is stored for a time period of 7 days.

It is not possible for us to assign this user data to a specific person; the data will not be merged or compared with other data sources. In general, the logged user data is not forwarded to third parties, not even in excerpts, unless this has been ordered by a court or is necessary for legal or criminal prosecution in the event of attacks on our IT infrastructure.

As the operator of the website, b.sonders GmbH has concluded an agreement for order data processing (ODP) with 1&1 Internet SE; 1&1 Internet SE certifies the secure and conscientious handling of personal data in their computer centres in Germany. This guarantees a legally compliant implementation of the legal requirements on data protection pursuant to Art. 28 EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR).

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. and c. EU GDPR). After the complete processing of a contract, the data will be blocked (for the purpose of complying with of tax and commercial retention periods) and deleted after expiry of these periods.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties

When disclosing personal data to third parties, we naturally observe the legality of data processing (Recital 40 EU GDPR). This means, for example, that we disclose the data of our customers on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. EU GDPR to a supplier or external partner, provided that this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract; however, no further data is transmitted unless you have expressly agreed to the transmission (cf. Art. 4 para. 11 and Art. 7 EU GDPR).

If you contact us by email as part of the application procedure or send us a written application by post, we record the personal data you have provided exclusively for a specific purpose (applicant management); a confirmation of receipt with the necessary information about the purpose of data collection and the duration of data retention in accordance with Art. 13 EU-GDPR will be sent to you; written procedural documentation accompanies the entire application process. As a matter of principle, no transfer of applicant data to third countries (say, for storage in a cloud) takes place.The data submitted by applicants will only be made available to those persons who are directly involved in the recruitment process and whose participation is necessary. The recorded data of rejected candidates will be retained on the basis of the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) for a maximum of six months after the end of the application procedure and then deleted.
