8) Cookies

Cookies help in many ways to make your visit to our website easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. Cookies are information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer’s hard drive when you visit our website. Cookies do not damage the hard drive of your computer, nor do they transmit personal data of users to us.

We use cookies, for example, to better tailor the information, offers and advertising displayed to you to your individual interests. Their use does not result in us obtaining new personal data about you as an online visitor. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or so that a message is always displayed when you receive a new cookie.

Disabling cookies may mean that you will not be able to use all the features of our websi-te.

9) Tracking Tools 

On our website we use so-called tracking tools. With these tracking tools your surfing behavior on our website is observed. This observation takes place for the purpose of designing and continuously optimizing our website according to your needs. In this context, pseudonymous user profiles are created and small text files stored on your computer (“cookies”) are used.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. We have also added the code “anonymizeIP” to this website Google Analytics. This guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

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 at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by

<a href=”javascript:gaOptout()”>click on this link</a> insert An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your information when you visit this site. The opt-out cookie is valid only in this browser and only for our website and is placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again. Please see https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable for instructions on how to integrate the opt-out cookie.

We also use Google Analytics to analyze data from double-click cookies and also ad words for statistical purposes. If you do not want this, you can deactivate this via the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).

We use Google Analytics including the features of Universal Analytics. Univer-sal Analytics allows us to analyze the activities on our pages across devices (e.g. when accessed via laptop and later via a tablet). This is made possible by the pseudo-nymous assignment of a User-ID to a user. Such an assignment is carried out when you register for a customer account or log in to your customer account. However, no personal data is forwarded to Google. Even if Universal Analytics adds additional functions to Google Analytics, this does not mean that this is associated with a limitation of data protection measures such as IP masking or the browser add-on.

10) Social Media Plug-Ins

The website uses the social plugins described below. The plugins are deactivated by default on our website and therefore do not send any data. You can activate the plugins by clicking on the corresponding social media button.

If these plugins are activated, your browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of the respective social network as soon as you access one of our websites. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from the social network to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The plugins can be deactivated again with a single click.

For further information, please refer to the respective data protection declarations.

  1. a) Plugins from Facebook

On this website, social plugins from Facebook are used to make our web presence more personal. For this we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button. This is an offer of the US-American company Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

By integrating the plugins, 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 “LI-KE” or “SHARE” button, 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 purposes 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 assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the Facebook privacy policy.

This allows Instagram to associate your visit to our sites with your account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram.

For more information, please refer to Insta-gram’s privacy policy: http://instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/

11) Note on Data Transfers to the USA

For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out to users who are resident or domiciled in Switzerland that the USA has monitoring measures in place by US authorities which generally allow the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data has been transferred from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without any differentiation, restriction or exception based on the objective pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access to and subsequent use of the data by the US authorities to very specific, strictly limited purposes that could justify the interference associated with both access to and use of the data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that there are no legal remedies available in the United States for Swiss data subjects to obtain access to data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective judicial protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the person concerned to this legal and factual situation in order to make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of their data.

Users residing in a member state of the EU are advised that the USA does not have an adequate level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union.

12) Right of Access, Correction, Deletion and Restriction of Processing; Right of Data Transferability

You have the right to receive information about the personal data we store about you free of charge upon request. In addition, you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and the right to have your personal data deleted, provided that this does not contravene any legal obligation to retain data or any permission that allows us to process the data. In accordance with articles 18 and 21 DSGVO, you also have the right to demand a restriction of data processing and to object to data processing.

You also have the right to demand the return of the data you have given us. Upon request, we will also pass on the data to a third party of your choice. You have the right to receive the data in a common file format.

You can contact us for the above-mentioned purposes by sending an e-mail to info@vo-style.com. In order to process your requests, we may, at our discretion, require proof of identity.

You can also tell us what to do with your data after your death by giving us instructions.

13) Storage of Data

We only store personal data for as long as is necessary to use the above-mentioned tracking, advertising and analysis services within the scope of our legitimate interest, to provide the above-mentioned services that you have requested or for which you have given your consent, and to comply with our legal obligations.

Contract data will be stored by us for a longer period of time, as this is required by legal storage obligations. Storage obligations which oblige us to store data result from accounting regulations and tax law provisions. According to these regulations, business communication, concluded contracts and booking vouchers must be stored for up to 10 years or, in the case of users residing in France, for up to 5 years. If we no longer need these data for the performance of services for you, the data will be blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.

14) Right to Appeal to a Data Protection Authority

If you are a resident of an EU country, you have the right to complain to a data protection authority at any time.
