“Personal data” is data with which you can be directly or indirectly identified (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, IP address).
Personal data is only collected and processed if this is permitted by a statutory permissive rule or if you have consented to the respective use. As soon as the purpose of the data processing has ceased to apply, the data will be deleted unless you have agreed to its further use or the deletion is prevented by legal retention obligations. In particular, the following data processing operations are recorded:
5. Data collection on our website and creation of log files
5.1 Description of data processing
Users can visit our website without registering. However, when you visit the website and each time you access a file, our IT system records access data about this process in a log file. Premier Tech Aqua or the web space provider records this information in server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. The information includes:
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing display device, abbreviated
Time of the server request
IP address (abbreviated if necessary)
This data is collected automatically as soon as you access our website. It is not combined with other data sources.
5.2 Lawful basis
The basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, which permits processing where there is a legitimate interest, provided that this does not conflict with the overriding interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the user.
Temporary storage of this data is necessary in order to present the content of the website for the user. Therefore, the collection of this information is required for the presentation of our website. To this end, the user’s IP address must also be stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website and to optimise it in order to improve our services. In addition, it is intended to ensure the security of our IT systems. The legitimate interest of Premier Tech Aqua in processing data in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR lies in these purposes.
5.4 Duration of storage
This data is deleted when further retention is no longer required for the purpose of the data storage. For the provision of the website, this is at the end of the respective session. Where data is stored in log files, this is after seven days. Storage beyond these periods is possible provided the IP addresses of the users are deleted or abbreviated such that it is not possible to assign the data to the respective user.
5.5 Option to object
The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential to the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no option for the user to object to this.
6.1 Description of data processing
The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised. The data is not assigned to the user or to the user’s other personal data.
6.2 Lawful basis for data processing
The processing of personal data using cookies is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Premier Tech Aqua has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services.
6.3 Purpose of data processing
The user data collected by technically required cookies is not used to create user profiles. Analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and to optimise our services. The data collected in this way will only be used in pseudonymised user profiles. These purposes also include the legitimate interest in the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
6.4 Duration of storage, option to object
Cookies are stored on your display device. “Session cookies” are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your display device until you delete them. These are called “permanent cookies”. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and to only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
If the user does not wish cookies to be stored on his display device, wishes to delete a stored cookie or wishes to be informed when a cookie is being stored, he can configure his browser accordingly. See the help information for the browser for details of how to do this. We expressly point out that not all functions of the website may be used in full in this case.
7. Enquiries via e-mail contact form
7.1 Description of data processing
If you send us enquiries via our contact form, we will store your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided, for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
For this purpose, the following data is transmitted to us via the input screen and stored: First and last name, company/organisation, address, e-mail address, telephone number and any personal data you provide in the enquiry text.
The user’s consent to the processing of this data is obtained during the sending process and reference is made to this data protection declaration.
Alternatively, a telephone number is provided on the website for contact purposes. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted by telephone will be stored.
7.2 Lawful basis for processing
The data entered in the contact form will be processed on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. In the event of contact by telephone, processing and saving of the user’s data is justified in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, even if the user does not give his explicit consent. Otherwise, it would not be possible to process the user’s request.
7.3 Purpose of the processing
The data transmitted via the contact form must be processed in order for us to handle the request and in the event of follow-up questions. In the case of contact via telephone, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
7.4 Duration of storage
We will retain the data that you enter in the contact form only until it is no longer required in order to achieve the purpose of its collection. If you have contacted us using the contact form or via phone, this is the case once the enquiry has been processed and completed. Furthermore, we will also delete the data before this point if you request that we delete it or if you revoke your consent to its retention. Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
7.5 Option for objection and removal
Users can revoke their consent to the processing of their data via the contact form at any time with effect for the future. All you need to do is send an informal e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then delete the data that you provided via the contact form and will not process the request further.

Your first name, surname and e-mail address are transmitted to us as personal data via the input screen, and stored and processed by us. In addition, the IP address of the display device and the date and time of registration are collected.
If you have ordered products from us and have provided us with your e-mail address, we allow ourselves within the scope of the legal requirements to send product recommendations for our own similar products if we have informed you of this at the time the contract was concluded and you have not objected to this.
The personal data that Premier Tech Aqua processes to send the newsletter will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used only for the purposes of sending the newsletter or product recommendation.
8.2 Lawful basis for processing
The lawful basis for the processing of personal data for sending the newsletter is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, provided the user has given his or her consent.

Personal data for the newsletter is collected for the purposes of sending the newsletter. The same applies to product recommendations to customers who have purchased products.

This website uses functions provided by the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on the user’s display device and that enable an analysis of the user’s use of the website. The information generated by these cookies regarding the use of the website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google is committed to respecting the data protection provisions of the EU-US Privacy Shield, the new legal framework for the transatlantic transfer of data agreed between the European Commission and the United States (COMMISSION IMPLEMENTATION DECISION (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 in accordance with Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the adequacy of the protection afforded by the EU-US Privacy Shield (notified under reference number C(2016) 4176)). Google is also registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield programme.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, the user’s IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the United States and coded there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data held by Google.
9.2 Lawful basis for processing
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
Order data processing
We have concluded an order data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the stringent regulations of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
9.3 Purpose of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the usage of the website, to compile reports regarding website activities and to deliver additional services concerning website and Internet usage to the website operator.

This website includes YouTube videos that can be played directly on YouTube from our website. This is done in “privacy-enhanced mode”, meaning that YouTube will not collect personal information about you until you play the video. Premier Tech Aqua has an influence on this data collection.
YouTube is a service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. (“Google”). When you access a video on our YouTube channel, your data may be transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses this data to evaluate your use of our videos on YouTube, to compile anonymous reports for us on video views and to provide us with further services associated with video use.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google is committed to respecting the data protection provisions of the EU-US Privacy Shield, the new legal framework for the transatlantic transfer of data agreed between the European Commission and the United States (COMMISSION IMPLEMENTATION DECISION (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 in accordance with Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the adequacy of the protection afforded by the EU-US Privacy Shield (notified under reference number C(2016) 4176)).

11. Links to other websites
The website may occasionally contain links (interactive references) to third-party websites for which Premier Tech Aqua is not responsible. Premier Tech Aqua has no influence whatsoever on the content and design of the linked external pages or on the websites that the user accesses via these links. The content and design of these websites as well as compliance with data protection regulations are the sole responsibility of the respective providers.
12. Protecting your data: SSL or TLS encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests, that you send to us. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
However, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to entirely protect data from access by third parties.
