Collection, use and processing of personal data
Surfganic collects and uses your personal data to process your orders, including delivery and payment, and to provide other services you request.
Furthermore, address and order data is collected, processed and used for our own marketing purposes. You can object to the use, processing and transmission of your personal data for marketing purposes at any time by sending an informal message by post or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
As a customer of our online shop you will receive regular product recommendations from us by e-mail. You will receive these product recommendations from us regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter. We use the e-mail address you provide during the purchase process to promote our own goods and/or services that are similar to those you have already purchased from us. You can contradict this product recommendation at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org at the end of each product recommendation e-mail, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.
All data will be stored and processed by Surfganic in accordance with the relevant regulations, especially the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Web Analysis & Cookies
On this website, AddThis, a web analysis service of the provider AddThis, Inc. collects and stores data from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. These user profiles serve to analyse visitor behaviour and are evaluated for the improvement and demand-oriented design of our offer. Cookies can be used for this purpose. These are small text files that are stored locally on the computer of the site visitor and thus enable recognition when visiting our website again. The pseudonymised user profiles are not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the express consent of the person concerned, which must be given separately. You can object to the collection and storage of data for the purpose of web analysis at any time with effect for the future by following the link http://addthis.com/privacy/opt-out#.UIQpIH-FZ10.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
In addition, this website uses technologies from Criteo GmbH and Google Inc. to collect and store information about the surfing behavior of website visitors for marketing purposes in anonymous form. This data is stored on your computer using so-called cookie text files (for "cookies" see also below). The stored surfing behaviour is analysed using an algorithm, so that targeted product recommendations in the form of advertising banners or advertisements on third-party websites (so-called publishers) can then be displayed. This data cannot be used to personally identify the website visitor. The collected data is only used to design or improve the offer according to the needs. It is not used for any other purpose or otherwise passed on to third parties. You can contradict this anonymous analysis of your surfing behaviour at any time by calling up the following deactivation links:

www.surfganic.com also uses technologies from Vertical Network, Mouseflow, New Relic, and DoubleClick Spotlight. Again, no personalized analysis is performed when using these tracking tools.
Creation of pseudonymous user profiles for web analysis
On this website, the web analysis tool New Relic, a web analysis service of the provider New Relic, collects and stores data, from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. These user profiles are used to analyse visitor behaviour and are evaluated in order to improve and design our offer according to the needs of our customers. Cookies can be used for this purpose. These are small text files that are stored locally on the computer of the site visitor and thus enable recognition when visiting our website again. The pseudonymised user profiles are not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the express consent of the person concerned, which must be given separately. You can object to the collection and storage of data for the purpose of web analysis at any time with effect for the future. You will find the necessary information in the section "Scope of data collection" below.
Beside the above mentioned providers there are other used techniques which save cookies. The technical basis corresponds to that already explained above.
You have the possibility to prevent cookies from being saved at any time by changing your browser settings so that cookies are either always rejected or you are notified and asked every time a cookie is to be saved. The help function of most web browsers explains how to change these settings. However, if you choose to disable cookies, this may affect the service provided by Surfganic. We therefore recommend that you leave the cookie functions enabled.

Use of Facebook plugins:
This website uses so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Social Plug-in from Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin". An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the website.
Through the integration of the plugin, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or making a comment, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research and the design of Facebook pages to meet your needs. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to associate the data collected via our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
