In addition, you can use the general information on maier-sports.com without disclosure of your personal data.

When you subscribe to the newsletter, your email address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. To unsubscribe, you can either send us an informal email to email@example.com or cancel using the link at the end of the newsletter.

3.2.6 Google reCAPTCHA
In order to ensure sufficient data security when transmitting forms, we use the reCAPTCHA service of the Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, in certain cases.
3.2.6 Checking product availability
a) Components from OUTTRA
In order to check the local product availability, we use OUTTRRA components from 81 MEDIA GmbH, Ziegelbrennerstr. 5, 73074 Stuttgart. The components use the IP-Address of the user only for the purposes of sending him/her this information. The IP-Address is therefore essential in order to inform about the product availability close to the user.
Upon choosing “by at a local store” the IP-Address of the user at the servers of OUTTRA is anonymized. With the anonymized IP-Address a consultation with a data bank takes place, which allows for a gross localization of the user on the basis of the not-anonymized part of the IP-Address. Thanks to this process, the user will see the local stores, where the products are available.
The legal basis for processing personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in advertising and sales of our products, as well as in a functionality of our website.
Should checking the product availability be connected with entering a sales agreement, the legal basis for processing personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR.
According to Art. 21 (1) GDPR you have a right to object for the future, at any time, the processing of personal data based on Article 6(1) lit. f) GDPR.
After ending your browser session, no personal data from the components will be processed by 81 MEDIA GmbH or Maier Sports.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield
Google guarantees that it will follow the EU's data protection regulations when processing data in the United States.
To enable the display of certain locations on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established whenever our website is accessed.
If you access the Google Maps components integrated into our website, Google will store a cookie on your device via your browser. Your user settings and data are processed to display our location and create a route description. We cannot prevent Google from using servers in the USA.
The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in optimizing the functionality of our website.

3.3 Legal basis for the processing of personal data
The collection and use of personal data by our users occurs regularly only with the consent of the user. If we obtain consent for processing operations pertaining to the data subject's personal data, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
An exception to this is valid in such cases where for actual reasons it is not possible to obtain prior consent and the data processing is permitted by legal provisions. For the processing of personal data that is necessary to fulfil a contract for which the data subject is a contracting party, Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation we are subject to, Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to maintain a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the data subject are not overriding, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
3.4 Security, SSL technology
We have taken technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data, in particular against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons. These security measures are continuously adapted according to technological development. The transfer of personal data between your computer or mobile terminal and our server is generally encrypted (SSL protocol, Secure Socket Layer).
3.5 Disclosure of your personal data with third parties
Your personal data is generally not disclosed. Your personal data will only be disclosed or otherwise transmitted to third parties if:
- we are legally obligated to do so due to official or court orders, or
- you have previously given your consent for us to do so.
4.1 Tracking and Analysis Tool
4.1.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "Cookies", text files stored on your computer that permit analysis of your use of the website.
The information generated by the cookie, for example about the time, location, and frequency of your use of this website, is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. When Google Analytics is used, it is not ruled out that the cookies created by Google Analytics can also record other personal data in addition to the IP address. Please note that Google may disclose this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on Google's behalf.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use the information generated by cookies to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other services to the website operator connected to website and internet use. According to Google, the IP address sent by your browser as a part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.
You can generally prevent the storage of cookies by means of appropriate configuration of your browser software. Please note however that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.
It is not ruled out that the cookies created by Google Analytics can also record other personal data in addition to the IP address. To prevent information on your use of the website from being collected by Google Analytics and transmitted to Google Analytics, you can download and install a plugin for your browser using the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
This plugin prevents information on your visit to the website from being communicated to Google Analytics. This plugin does not prevent other types of analysis.
Please note that you cannot use the above-described browser plugin when you visit our website via the browser of a mobile end device (smartphone or tablet). When using a mobile end device, you can prevent the collection of your user data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link:
By clicking this link, a so-called opt-out cookie is placed in your browser. This prevents information on your visit to the website from being communicated to Google Analytics. Please note that the opt-out cookie is only valid for this browser and only for this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie is also deleted. To continue to prevent the collection by Google Analytics, you must click on the link again. The use of the opt-out cookie is also possible as an alternative to the above plugin when using the browser on your computer.
In order to ensure the best possible protection of your personal data, the code "anonymizeIp" was added to Google Analytics on this website. This code causes the last 8 bits of the IP addresses to be deleted and your IP address is thus anonymized (so-called IP masking). As a matter of principle, your IP address is shortened by Google within the Member States of the European Union or within other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and is thus anonymized. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there.
To tailor our website to your needs, we use the web analytics tool "Matomo". During this process, information about the use of our website is collected and transmitted to our server for analysis and storage. Your IP address is only processed in a shortened form during this process, thereby anonymizing it. If you do not want your usage of our website to be analyzed, you have the right to object to the processing of your data at any time. To do so, an opt-out cookie will be placed in your browser, which does not contain any usage data and causes Matomo not to collect any session data.
4.2 Social plugins (Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Youtube)
Our websites contain social plugins of the social networks "Facebook"( Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA), "Google+" (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA), "Twitter" (Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, California 94103, USA), and "YouTube" (Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). These services are offered by the respective companies ("providers"). As part of our online presence, the social plugins are identified by the respective buttons belonging to the service. On the basis of the data transmitted to the respective service via the social plugins, the service may associate you with your account. In order to increase the protection of your data on our website, the social plugins are integrated on our website by means of the so-called "2-click solution". This ensures that no automatic connection to the servers is established by the respective providers when a page of our website containing such social plugins is accessed.
The activation of the function of the respective social plugin takes place in two steps. To activate a social plugin, you must first click on the link on our website. This first activates the social plugin and your browser establishes a connection to the servers of the respective provider. With a second click you can now interact with the social plugin and, for example, submit your recommendation. If you are already logged in to one of the social networks of the providers, the providers can directly assign the visit to this website to your profile. If you interact with the social plugin by clicking, the corresponding information is also directly transmitted to a server of the provider and stored there. This information may also be published on the social network and shown to your contacts there. If you wish to prevent such immediate assignment of your data collected via our website to your profile, you must log out of your account of the respective provider before visiting our website.
Please refer to the privacy policies found directly on the website of the respective service for information on the extent and purpose of data collection by the service as well as the further processing and use of your data there. There you will also receive further information on your corresponding privacy rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.

8. Storage period
We only store your personal data for as long as this is permitted by law. Stored personal data will be deleted if the user withdraws his consent to its storage or if knowledge of this data is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored, in particular if its storage is not permissible for other legal reasons.
