1. Collecting Personal Data
We use our technology to gather the following information:
- Information that is collected automatically: As soon as you visit our websites, we collect and store certain information automatically. This information includes Internet protocol addresses (IP), the type and version of browser you are using, your operating system and platform, including the uniform resource locator (URL). We store this data in a completely anonymous way.
- Information that you provide us with: Personal data you share with us in the course of submitting an order remain completely confidential. This includes, for example, your contact data, and your birth date and telephone number, including your payment information.
- Information from other sources: In order to deliver your future orders securely and safely, we obtain information on payment behaviour, such as from mail-order companies, credit bureaus or updates regarding ordering and delivery addresses of parcel delivery and transport companies.
- Location-based data: We offer location-based services such as "Contact RENZ." If you use these services, we receive information about your actual location only if you expressly agree to it in advance (e.g. GPS signals), or information regarding your approximate location (e.g., cell ID).
2. Using Your Data to Process Your Order
We use the personal information that you provide us with as part of the order process, to deliver the goods, to arrange payment and to send you information about your order. We require the following data to do this: contact information including title, first name, last name, street address, postal code, city, country, email address, birth date (to make sure the customer is over the age of 16) and phone number (in case we have any questions about your order).
For the purpose of payment processing the necessary data is stored both on our server and on the servers of the companies we have authorized to handle payment processing. For purposes of credit and credit checks, your data might be passed on to financial information service providers.
3. Using Your Data for Advertising Purposes
We use your information for promotional purposes (direct marketing, newsletters, etc.) only as permitted by law and only if you have given your express permission for this purpose in advance. Of course, this permission can be revoked at any time (see point 11).
Newsletter and product offers by e-mail
If you register for the RENZ newsletter, you will receive regular product recommendations/updates from us that we will send to your specified email address. We use your information in this regard for promotional purposes, and to provide you with information about our range of products. These offers might be based on your past orders. The data that is required to send the newsletters is forwarded to the companies RENZ has commissioned for handling shipping and is therefore stored on servers in Germany and Great Britain. These partners in turn provide RENZ with information related to emails that have been sent to you and confirmation that they have been read, information regarding your computer and Internet access, operating system and platform, date and time of the visit to the site and the products you have viewed. To send the newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in process, i.e., we will not send you the newsletter unless you confirm our notification e-mail by clicking on a link to let us know that you want to activate the newsletter service.
If you wish to stop receiving the newsletter from us, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link included in each newsletter, or by sending us an e-mail to mail@ renz-germany.de

8. The Facebook Like Button
Our sites receive social plug-ins from the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The social plug-ins include the Facebook "Like" button, and the plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo (thumbs-up icon) or are identified by the additional "Facebook social" plug-in. When you access a website from our website that contains this type of plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers and sends this data to Facebook. This is true regardless of whether you are a member of Facebook, whether you are logged in while visiting our site as a member of Facebook, or if you click the plug-in. If you are a Facebook member and are logged in at Facebook while on our website, Facebook will assign your visit to our site to your Facebook account, even if you do not click the social plug-in. But if you do click the plug-in, this information will be transmitted to your Facebook account and stored there. The nature and extent of information transmitted to Facebook data are beyond our control. Nor do we know in detail which of your data will be transmitted to Facebook, or for what purpose Facebook uses this data. This data includes your IP address, and Facebook's own information on the website you visited, the date and time of the visit and other browser-related information. If a visitor visits the RENZ website while also logged in on Facebook, their login ID will also be collected and processed, and Facebook will assign this visit to the visitor's Facebook account. You must log out of Facebook before visiting our website if you want to prevent the embedded Facebook social plug-in on our site from transmitting your data to your Facebook account. More information on Facebook can be found at this website:http://www.facebook.com/help/social-plugins/ Refer to Facebook privacy policies for more information on the collection, storage and use of your personal data by Facebook, and the configuration options available to you to protect your personal information:http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/
