Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on our behalf. 
Consent is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her

3. overview of the purposes of processing 
We process personal data insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and to display our content or to process your order or to provide further services. We also process your personal data to respond to contact inquiries, measure reach and for marketing purposes as well as for any security measures.

4. Legal bases for the processing of your data
Unless the legal basis is explicitly stated in the privacy policy, the following applies: 
- Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.
- If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract for consideration or free of charge, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
- If the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. 
- If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interests, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

5. Your rights
You can assert the following free rights against any controller responsible for the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR in accordance with the statutory provisions:
- Right to withdraw your consent (Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR).
- Right to information: You can request information about your personal data that we process in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR.
- Right to object: You have the right to object for specific reasons. You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal data which is based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The controller will then no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website.
- Right to rectification: If the information concerning you is not (or no longer) accurate, you can request rectification in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR. If your data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed;
- Right to erasure: You can request the erasure of your personal data in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR.
- Right to restriction of processing: In accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. 
- Right to data portability: In the event that the requirements of Art. 20 para. 1 GDPR are met, you have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. They are therefore not based on consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, but are justified pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The requirements of Art. 20 (1) GDPR are therefore not met in this respect.
To assert your rights against the controller, please contact the controller using the contact details listed above. The data protection officer is also available for confidential inquiries. 
You also have the right, pursuant to Art. 77 et seq. GDPR to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by the controller. The supervisory authority responsible for us is the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of North Rhine-Westphalia, P.O. Box 20 04 44, 40102 Düsseldorf, Tel.: 0211/38424-0, Fax: 0211/38424-10, e-mail: You can find an overview of all supervisory authorities at

6. Storage period 
The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in their processing in compliance with the statutory provisions, in particular in accordance with Art. 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless expressly stated in this privacy policy, we delete data stored by us as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose. Data will only be deleted beyond the point in time at which it is no longer required for its intended purpose if it is required for other legally permissible purposes or if the data must continue to be stored due to statutory retention obligations. In these cases, processing is restricted, i.e. blocked and not processed for other purposes. 
We store your data collected for the purpose of processing the contract until the expiry of the statutory or possible contractual warranty and guarantee rights. After this period has expired, we retain the information required under commercial and tax law relating to the contractual relationship for the periods specified by law. For this period (regularly ten years from the conclusion of the contract), the data is processed again in the exemplary case of a review by the tax authorities. With regard to other purposes pursued by us, please refer to the following provisions for the duration of storage.

7. Secure data transmission and data security
Your personal data is transmitted securely using encryption. This applies to your order and also to the customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system. We also use technical and organizational measures to protect our websites and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

8. Recipients of data 
We inform you about data recipients (data processors and third parties) at the relevant points in this privacy policy. Nevertheless, we would like to provide you with an overview of potential data recipients below. 
a) Data Processing, Recipients in Third Countries
We partially engage external service providers to process your data, who are bound by our instructions. These service providers have been carefully selected, commissioned, and are regularly monitored by us. The basis for these engagements is agreements on data processing in accordance with Article 28 of the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Data processors do not independently process data for their own purposes. We inform you about the use of data processors at the relevant points in this privacy policy. Contractors include, in particular, hosting providers, email service providers, and providers of web analytics services. 
If we transfer personal data to recipients in so-called "third countries," meaning countries outside the EU or EEA where an equivalent level of data protection cannot be assumed, and we are not authorized to transmit the data due to a legal obligation, we ensure that the necessary adequate level of data protection is guaranteed in that specific third country or with the recipient in that third country. This may arise, in particular, from an "adequacy decision" by the European Commission, establishing an adequate level of data protection for a specific third country as a whole. Alternatively, we may also base data transfers on the so-called "EU standard contractual clauses" agreed upon with a recipient or, in the case of recipients in the USA, on compliance with the principles of the "EU-US Privacy Shield." Information about EU-US Privacy Shield participants can be found here:; information about EU standard contractual clauses here:, and information about European Commission adequacy decisions here: We are happy to provide you with further information on suitable and adequate guarantees to comply with an appropriate level of data protection upon request.
b) Third Parties: Payment Service Providers, Assignment of Claims
Upon your request, we disclose personal data for the purpose of payment processing to a payment service provider. Further information on this can be found under B, 3. 
In the context of financing the business of furor per fumum GmbH & Co. KG, we partially assign claims from purchase contracts with you – our customers – to third parties. As part of such assignment, the personal data necessary for the identification of the relevant claim is disclosed. The legal basis for data transfer in this case is Article 6(1)(f) DS-GVO (legitimate interest). The recipients of the assignment process the transmitted data independently and in accordance with applicable data protection regulations. There is no change for you as a customer in the processing of your contract with us. Emil Élise remains your direct contact and is authorized to receive your purchase price payments.
In addition, for the purpose of shipping, we disclose your address data to a postal service provider. 
c) Authorities as Data Recipients
In the event of a legal obligation, we reserve the right to disclose information about you when demanded by lawful authorities or law enforcement agencies.
Legal Basis: Article 6(1) sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO.

9. Adjustment of the Privacy Policy
We reserve the right to update this privacy policy from time to time. Updates to this privacy policy will be published on our website. Changes take effect upon their publication on our website. Therefore, we recommend that you visit this page regularly to stay informed about any updates that may have occurred.

10. LinkedIn Insight Tag
Sollten Sie der Verwendung von LinkedIn-Pixel zugestimmt haben, beachten Sie bitte folgende Informationen:
This website uses the LinkedIn Insight Tag. The provider of this service is LinkedIn Ireland
Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data processing through LinkedIn Insight Tag:
The LinkedIn Insight Tag provides us with information about the visitors to our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can analyze professional data (e.g.,
career level, company size, country, location, industry, and job title) of our website visitors and better tailor our site to specific target audiences. Additionally, with the help of LinkedIn Insight Tags, we can measure whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or take other actions (conversion measurement). Conversion measurement can also be cross-device (e.g., from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag also offers a retargeting function, allowing us to display targeted advertising to website visitors outside the website, with no identification of the advertising recipient according to LinkedIn. LinkedIn itself also collects log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser characteristics, and access time). IP addresses are shortened or (if used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymized). LinkedIn deletes the direct identifiers of LinkedIn members after seven days. The remaining pseudonymized data is then deleted within 180 days. The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be attributed to specific individuals by us as the website operator. LinkedIn will store the collected personal data of website visitors on its servers in the United States and use them for its own advertising activities. For details, refer to LinkedIn's privacy policy at

Legal basis:
The use of LinkedIn Insight is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising, including social media. If appropriate consent has been obtained (e.g., consent to store cookies), the processing is based solely on Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent is revocable at any time. The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: and

Objection to the use of LinkedIn Insight Tag:
To object to the analysis of user behavior and targeted advertising by LinkedIn, follow this link:
Furthermore, LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings. To avoid a link between data collected on our website by LinkedIn and your LinkedIn account, log out of your LinkedIn account before visiting our website.

B. Information on Individual Processes

1. Server Logfiles
For the informational use of our website, it is generally not necessary for you to actively provide personal data. Instead, we collect and use only the data that your internet browser automatically transmits to us. This occurs with every visit to our website, whether you are logged into your user account or not. The types of processed data include:
• Date and time of access
• Hostname of the accessing computer
• Website from which the website was accessed (previously visited page)
• Websites accessed through our website
• Pages visited on our website
• Notification of whether a page request was successful
• Transferred data volume
• Information about the browser type and version used
• Operating system 
• IP address
The data is processed on our servers. We do not process this data together with other personal data unless expressly indicated. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to your computer.
The temporary processing of the mentioned data is technically necessary for providing a website under Art. 6(1)(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to correctly display our website to you.
To defend against threats, ensure our IT security, and provide evidence of potential attacks, we store log files with your IP address for 7 days and beyond with your anonymized IP address for a duration of 60 days. Our legitimate interest in data processing is based on these purposes. We store your IP address beyond your website visit only in anonymized form, meaning we truncate your IP address by three digits. Personal evaluation of the data, especially for marketing purposes, does not occur. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) of the GDPR.

2. Data Processing for Order Fulfillment 
To place orders in the shop, we require the following data for order processing:
• Salutation, first name, last name
• Billing address, if different, shipping address
• Payment details
• Email address
• In the case of a freight number: telephone number for scheduling a delivery date
• Customer number
• Other order data (article numbers, order number, voucher numbers in the case of voucher purchases)
We process your data for order processing, including possible later reversals and warranty cases. We use your email address for sending order and shipping confirmations, as well as for other order-related communication. Your delivery address is transmitted to a shipping service provider. If you have chosen "cash on delivery" as the payment method, we transmit your invoice amount to the shipping service provider. The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(b) of the GDPR (contract fulfillment).
Further details are voluntary. The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(a), Art. 7 of the GDPR. 
If you want to create a customer account during the order process, the information listed under 4. applies. Ordering as a guest is also possible. 
When using our shop, cookies are set to provide the shopping system, which is necessary to use the shopping cart function.

3. Payment Processing

In processing payments on our online shop, we collaborate with these partners: technical service providers, banks, payment service providers.

a) Data Processing for Transaction Processing
Depending on the selected payment method, we provide the necessary data for payment transaction processing to our technical service providers working on our behalf, or to the appointed banks or selected payment service providers, as necessary for payment processing. This is for contract fulfillment under Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR. Some payment service providers may collect the necessary payment transaction data themselves, e.g., on their own website or through technical integration in the ordering process. The privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies in this regard. For questions about our partners for payment processing and the basis of our cooperation with them, please contact the contact information described in this privacy policy.

b) Data Processing for Fraud Prevention and Optimization of Payment Processes
If necessary, we provide our service providers with additional data, which they use as our data processors, together with the necessary data for payment transaction processing, for the purpose of fraud prevention and optimization of our payment processes (e.g., invoicing, processing disputed payments, supporting accounting). This serves our predominant legitimate interests in protecting against fraud or in efficient payment management under Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

c) Identity and Credit Check when Choosing Klarna Payment Services
Klarna Pay later (Purchase on Invoice)
If you choose the payment services of Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden (hereinafter Klarna), we ask for your consent under Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR to transmit the necessary data for payment processing and identity and credit checks to Klarna. In Germany, the credit reporting agencies mentioned in Klarna's privacy policy may be used for identity and credit checks. Klarna uses the information received about the statistical probability of a payment default for a balanced decision on the establishment, execution, or termination of the contractual relationship. You can revoke your consent at any time by sending a message to the contact information provided in this privacy policy. This may result in us not being able to offer you certain payment options anymore. You can also revoke your consent to this use of personal data at any time directly to Klarna.

4.    Establishment and Use of a Customer Account, Wishlist
For each customer who registers on our website, we create a password-protected access to their stored inventory data (customer account). Here, you can view and manage data about your orders and, for future orders, manage your address and payment details. Registration is a requirement to use the wishlist function and review products. To create a customer account, we need the categories of data marked as mandatory. 
After registration, we will send a confirmation link to the email address provided, which you must click to activate your customer account. This serves to confirm ownership of the provided email address. 
Only then can you log into your customer account. At this moment, a session cookie is set on your computer. With the optional "stay logged in" function, we want to make your visits to our websites as pleasant as possible. This function allows you to use our services without having to log in again each time. For this purpose, a cookie is set on your computer. For security reasons, you will be prompted to enter your password again if, for example, your personal data needs to be changed or you want to place an order. We recommend not using the "stay logged in" function if the computer is used by multiple users. Additionally, we note that the "stay logged in" function is not available if you use a setting that automatically deletes stored cookies after each session.
We use the data collected during the opening of the customer account for order processing, providing additional services requested by you, offering payment options, and processing payments, as well as any refunds. The legal basis for processing personal data in connection with the creation of a customer account is Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR.
We delete the data collected and stored in connection with the customer account at the latest when you delete your customer account yourself or inform us that your customer account should be deleted. However, premature deletion of your personal data is not possible if and to the extent that the data is still required for the contract processing or legal regulations obligate us. In this case, your customer account will be blocked, meaning it will no longer be accessible via the internet.

5. Contacting Us via Contact Form, Email, and Phone
You can get in touch with us via email, phone, and through our contact forms to request a quote, assert warranty rights, or engage in other correspondence. We use the data you provide to us in connection with your contact exclusively for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. To process your request, we typically process: 
• Name, email address, content of the inquiry, server log files (see above) 
• Order data (see above) in the case of inquiries related to your orders
The legal basis for processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if the contact is related to contractual fulfillment obligations. For other correspondence, the legal basis is based on your (presumed) consent, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You have the option to revoke your consent for processing personal data at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

We provide the following personal data to Mailchimp: Email address, [First name], [Last name], [Phone number]

[Our email communications include a link allowing you to update your personal data.]

Mailchimp acts as the recipient of your personal data and processes it as a data processor for the newsletter delivery.

Without your consent and the transmission of your personal data, we cannot send a newsletter to you. Additionally, Mailchimp collects the following personal data through cookies and other tracking methods: Information about your device (IP address, device information, operating system, browser ID, information about the application you use to read your emails, and other information about hardware and internet connection). Furthermore, usage data is collected, such as the date and time you opened the email/campaign and browser activities (e.g., which emails/websites were opened). Mailchimp needs this data to ensure the security and reliability of its systems, compliance with the terms of use, and prevention of abuse. This corresponds to Mailchimp's legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) and serves the performance of the contract (Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR). Performance data is also evaluated by Mailchimp, such as the delivery statistics of emails and other communication data. This information is used to create usage and performance statistics of the services. Additionally, Mailchimp collects information from other sources about you. Personal data from social media and other third-party providers is collected to an unspecified extent and duration. We have no control over this process. For more information on how to object to and remove your data from Mailchimp, please visit: The legal basis for these processes is your consent according to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. A corresponding link is included in all communications. Additionally, revocation can be made through the contact options provided. Declaration of revocation does not affect the legality of processing carried out prior to the revocation. Your data will be processed as long as the corresponding consent exists. Apart from that, it will be deleted after the termination of the contract between us and Mailchimp, unless legal requirements necessitate further storage. Mailchimp has implemented compliance measures for international data transfers. These apply to all global activities where Mailchimp processes personal data of individuals in the EU. These measures are based on the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs). For more information, visit:
