a) During a Visit to the Website
On calling up our website group.fkpscorpio.com information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used by your terminal device.

The data mentioned is processed by us for the following purposes:

The legal basis for the data processing is provided by article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letters a and b of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legitimate interest arises from the above-listed purposes for data collection. On no account do we use the data collected for purposes of drawing inferences to your person.

In addition to this, during visits to our website we employ cookies and analytic services. More detailed explanations on this can be found under points 4 and 5 of this data-protection statement.

We only give your personal data to a third party if you have consented to this, in keeping with article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter a and/or letter b of GDPR, for fulfilment of contractual relationships and/or if this is for necessary implementation of pre-contractual measures and there are no reasons to believe that you might have a predominant legitimate interest in the non-transfer of your data,

4) Cookies
When you visit our website, we display a "Cookie banner" to notify you that we use cookies and other tracking technology to improve the user experience on our website as well as for web analytics and interest-based advertising. We ask for your consent for the use of various types of cookies, including those that are not technically necessary. In case of your consent, data may also be transferred to companies in countries outside the EU without an adequate level of protection under data protection law, in particular also to the USA.

This consent can be revoked on your part at any time with effect for the future either in whole or in part. The options available to you for this purpose are described in detail below.

What are Cookies?
The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "Session cookies". These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude their acceptance in certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The functionality of this website may be limited if cookies are deactivated.

Cookies that are required for performing the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of their services. In regards to the storage of other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour), these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Adaptation of your cookie settings
Using the following link, you can easily view your Cookie settings and change them where necessary. Alternatively, you can also change the cookie settings in your browser:

Internet Explorer

Most browsers are set in such a way that cookies are automatically accepted. The storage of cookies in your browser can be deactivated and you can delete them from your hard disk at any time. Without cookies the use of our offer on the website is only possible to a limited extent.

Cookie categories
We divide cookies into different categories, depending on their function and purpose:

Essential Cookies
Essential cookies enable basic functions and are necessary for the proper functioning of the website.

Statistics cookies collect information anonymously. This information helps us understand how our visitors use our website. 

Personalisation & Advertising
Marketing cookies are used by third-party vendors or publishers to display personalised advertisements. This is achieved by tracking visitors across websites.

External Media & Services

5) Analytic Tools

a) Tracking Tools
The tracking measures listed below and deployed by us are implemented on the basis of article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter b of GDPR. With the tracking measures used we want to ensure a needs-oriented design and the progressive optimization of our website. We also employ tracking measures to statistically record and evaluate the use made of our website, and for purposes of optimizing of our offer for you. These interests are to be seen as legitimate in the sense of the above-mentioned regulation.

Explanations of the respective purposes of the data processing, as well as data categories, can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

b) Google Analytics
For purposes of a needs-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages we use Google Analytics, a web-analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as "Google"). In this context, pseudonymized user profiles, in particular also concerning demographic characteristics and interests, are created and cookies (see under point 4) are used. The information created by the cookie on your use of this website, such as…

browser type/version
operating system used
referrer URL (the site previously visited)
host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
time of server enquiry
is transferred to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. The information is utilized to evaluate the use made of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to produce further services associated with the use made of the website and of the Internet, for purposes of market research and needs-oriented design of these Internet pages. Where appropriate, this information is also passed on to third parties, provided this is legally prescribed, or to the extent that third parties process this data on commission. On no account will your IP address be used in connection with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that allocation is not possible (IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of the cookies by adjusting the browser-software settings appropriately. In this case, however, we draw your attention to the fact that not all of the functions of this website may then be fully available.

You can also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google in that you download and install the browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptot?hl=de).

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly in cases of browsers on mobile terminal devices, you can also prevent recording by Google Analytics in your settings. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents future recording of your data during your visit to this website: The opt-out cookie applies only in this browser and only for our website. It is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

You can find further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

c) "Facebook Fan Page"
We also use a Facebook platform for our fan page. For this purpose, Facebook uses the devices of those who use our fan page cookies and collects information about how our fan page is used. These Facebook cookies each have a unique cookie ID. Due to this method of data processing, we (and Facebook) may receive anonymous statistical data about how you use this Facebook fan page. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us or our data protection supervisor.

6) Social Media Plug-Ins
On our website we make use, on the basis of article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter b of GDPR, of social plug-ins from the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as a means of making our business better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be seen as a legitimate interest in the sense of GDPR. The responsibility for operation in conformity with data protection belongs to their respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins by us is undertaken by way of the so-called two-click method, as a means of protecting visitors to our website as far as possible.

a) Facebook
Social media plug-ins from Facebook are used on our website, as a means of making their use more personal. For this we use "LIKE" or "SHARE" buttons. This is an OFFER FROM Facebook:

If you call up a page of our web appearance that contains such a plug-in, your browser links directly to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and is integrated by this in the website.

Due to the integration of the plug-ins Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page in our web presentation, even if you have no Facebook account or are not logged-in to Facebook at the time. This information (including your IP address) is transferred by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and is stored there.

If you are logged-in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-in, for example if you click the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and is stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and is shown to your Facebook friends.

Facebook can use this information for purposes of advertising, market research and needs-oriented design of the Facebook pages. To this end usage, interest and relationship profiles are created by Facebook, e.g. as a means of evaluating your use of our website in terms of the advertisements slotted in for you by Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide further services associated with the use of Facebook.

If you don't want Facebook to assign the data gathered on you, via our web presentation, to your Facebook account, you must leave Facebook by logging off, before your visit to our website.

For more on the purpose and extent of the data acquisition, and further processing and utilization of the data by Facebook, and your rights in this connection, and the setting options for protection of your private sphere, please refer to the data-protection information provided by Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

b) Twitter
Our Internet pages integrate plug-ins of the short-message network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter). You can recognize the Twitter plug-ins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our page. An overview of the tweet buttons can be found here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons).

If you call up a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct link between your browser and the Twitter server is made. Twitter is thereby informed that you, with your IP address, have visited our pages. If you click Twitter's "tweet button" while you are logged on to your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages to your Twitter profile. Twitter can thereby assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We draw attention in this connection to the fact that we, as the provider of the pages, receive no information as to the content of the data transferred or as to the use made of it by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to be able to assign the visit to our pages, please log off your Twitter user account.

Further information relating to this topic can be found in the data-protection statement made by Twitter (http://twitter.com/privacy).

c) Instagram
On our website the social media plug-in from Instagram is also used, this being operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram").
The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram camera".

If you call up a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser creates a direct link to the servers of Instagram. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Instagram to your browser and is integrated in the page. Due to this integration Instagram receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page in our web presentation, even if you have no Instagram profile or are not logged-on to Instagram at the time.

This information (including your IP address) is transferred by your browser directly to an Instagram server in the USA and is stored there. If you are logged-on to Instagram, Instagram can assign the visit to our website directly to your Instagram account. If you interact with the plug-in, for example if you click the "Instagram" button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and is stored there.

The information is also published in your Instagram account and is shown there to your contacts.

If you don't want Instagram to assign the data gathered on you via our web presentation directly to your Instagram account, you must leave Instagram by logging-off before your visit to our website.

You can find further information on this in the Instagram data-protection statement (https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388).

d) YouTube
aa) We have integrated YouTube videos in our online offer, these being stored on http://www.YouTube.com and directly playable from our website. They are all integrated in "extended data-protection mode", i.e. no data on you as the user is transferred to YouTube, if you do not play the videos. Only if you play the videos is the data itemized in paragraph 2 transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

bb) From the visit to the website YouTube receives the information that you have called-up the corresponding sub-page of our website. Furthermore, the data itemized under point 2 a of this statement is transferred. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube makes a user account available, via which you are logged on, or whether no user account exists. If you have logged on with Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment to your profile with YouTube, you must log off before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-oriented design of its websites. Such evaluation is undertaken (even for non-logged-on users) particularly for provision of requirement-specific advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact YouTube in order to exercise this right.

cc) You can obtain further information on the purpose and extent of the data acquisition and its processing by YouTube in the data-protection statement. There you can also obtain further information on your rights and setting options to protect your private sphere: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

The statutory value-added tax is included in the price. The total price of the order, including all fees, is due for payment immediately after conclusion of the contract for the payment methods credit card and immediate bank transfer.
