We, Halfar System GmbH, as the operator of the online offer, are the responsible party for the processing of the personal data of the users of the online offer. Our contact details can be found in the imprint of the online offer, the contact persons for questions regarding the processing of personal data are named directly in this privacy statement.
We take the protection of your privacy and your private data very seriously. We collect, store and use your personal data only in accordance with the content of this privacy statement and the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the national data protection regulations.
With this privacy statement, we would like to inform you about the extent to which and the purpose for which personal data is processed in connection with the use of the online offer.
Personal data is information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes all information about your identity, such as your name, your e-mail address or your postal address. Information that cannot be associated with your identity (such as statistical data, for example on the number of users of the online service) is not considered personal information.
In principle, you can use our online offer without disclosing your identity and without providing personal data. We will then only collect general information about your visit to our online offer. However, for some of the services offered, personal data will be collected from you. This data will then only be processed by us for the purpose of using this online service, in particular for providing the requested information. When collecting personal data, only the data that is absolutely necessary must be provided. In addition, further information may be possible, in which case it is voluntary. We indicate in each case whether the information is mandatory or voluntary. We then provide information on the specific details in the corresponding section of this privacy statement.
No automated decision-making based on your personal data takes place in connection with the use of our online services.
Processing personal data
We store the information provided by you on protected dedicated servers located within the European Union. Technical and organisational measures are taken to protect such servers against loss, destruction, access, modification, or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons.
Access to your data will be permitted only to a limited number of persons in charge of the technical, commercial, or editorial support of the servers. Notwithstanding regular controls, full protection against all risks cannot be provided.
Your personal data is transmitted over the Internet in encrypted form. We use TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption for transmission of data.
Disclosure of personal data to third parties
As a rule, we use your personal information exclusively for providing the services that you have requested from us. Insofar as we use external service providers in performing the service requested, such external service providers will also access the data exclusively for the purpose of performing the service. By taking the necessary technical and organisational measures we ensure compliance with data protection policies and we demand the same of our external partners.
Moreover, we will not disclose the data to any third parties, including without limitation for advertising purposes, without your express consent. We will disclose your personal data only if you have given your consent to disclosure of the data or insofar as we are entitled or obligated to do so under legal provisions and/or administrative or judicial orders. This may include, without being limited to, giving information for purposes of criminal prosecution, in order to avert danger, or in order to enforce intellectual property rights.
If we transfer your personal data ourselves or through service providers to countries outside the European Union, we comply with the special provisions of Article 44 et seq. of the GDPR for this purpose and also oblige our service providers to comply with these regulations. We will therefore only transfer your data to countries outside the European Union subject to the level of protection guaranteed by the GDPR. This level of protection is ensured in particular by an adequacy decision of the EU Commission or by appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR.
Legal basis of data processing
Insofar as we obtain your consent to processing your personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR constitutes the legal basis for such data processing.
Insofar as we process your personal data because processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or is necessary under a quasi-contractual relationship with you, the lawfulness of data processing is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR.
Insofar as we process your personal data because processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation, the lawfulness of data processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR.
Furthermore, Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR may constitute the legal basis for data processing, if processing of your personal data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data.
Throughout this Privacy Statement, we refer to the legal basis on which we process your personal data.
Deletion of data and duration of storage
We invariably delete or block any personal data provided by you as soon as the purpose of storage of such data has ceased to apply. However, we may continue to store your personal data beyond that, if such storage is governed by legal provisions to which we are subject, including without limitation the legal obligation to retain business records and documentation. In such a case, we will delete or block the personal data after the prescribed period of time has expired.
Use of our online offering
Informationen relating to your computer
Each time you access our online offer, we collect the following information about your computer, regardless of your registration: the IP address of your computer, the request of your browser and the time of this request. In addition, the status and the amount of data transferred are recorded as part of this request. We also collect product and version information about the browser used and the computer's operating system. We also record the website from which the online offer was accessed. The IP address of your computer is anonymised immediately after collection by shortening, stored for the time of use of the online offer and then deleted. The remaining data is stored for a limited period of time.
We use this data for the operation of the online offer, in particular to detect and eliminate errors, to determine the utilisation of the online offer and to make adjustments or improvements. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, which is the legal basis for this processing.
Cookies are used for our online offer - as on many websites. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and save certain settings as well as data for exchange with our online offer via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie file was sent, information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier.
Cookies enable us to recognise your computer and to make any pre-settings and preferences immediately available. The cookies we use are - as far as possible - so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted at the end of the browser session. Occasionally, cookies with a longer storage period can also be used so that your settings and preferences can also be taken into account the next time you visit our online services.
Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you as soon as cookies are sent. It is also possible to manually delete cookies that have already been saved via the browser settings. Please note that you may only be able to use our online offer to a limited extent or not at all if you reject the storage of cookies or delete necessary cookies.
RegistrationYou can register to use our online services. To do so, you must provide the data requested as part of the registration process, for example name, address and email address. We also record the date and time of registration. The advantage of this is that you do not have to re-enter this data each time you use or place an order.
Integration of third-party services
For some functions in our online offer, we use services from third-party providers. The corresponding services are mainly optional functions that must be explicitly selected or used by you. We have concluded contractual agreements with the respective providers for the provision or integration of their services and, within the scope of our possibilities, we are committed to ensuring that the third-party providers also provide transparent information about the scope of the processing of personal data and comply with the provisions of data protection law.
Google Tag Manager
For our online offer, we use the Google Tag Manager of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (hereinafter: "Google"). The Google Tag Manager is a tag management system (TMS) that can be used to manage tags, i.e. tracking codes and associated code fragments, on our website. Google services can be integrated into a website via the Google Tag Manager.
When using the Google Tag Manager, a connection to Google's servers is established. As a result, the IP address of the browser of the end device used by the visitor to these Internet pages is stored by Google. It cannot be ruled out that data will be transmitted to Google in the USA in this context and that US security authorities may be able to access the data under certain circumstances. However, cookies are not set in connection with the use of the Google Tag Manager.
More information about the Google Tag Manager and data processing by Google can be found here:
Our legal basis for the use of the Google Tag Manager is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1) (f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the management of tracking codes in our online offer, which enable us to analyze the use of our online offer and to improve and personalize our services.
We use Google Analytics for statistical analysis. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google.
On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the online service, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to us as the operator of the online service. In addition, Google may use the data for its own purposes. Within the scope of these purposes, Google may, for example, create a profile of user behaviour or link the data with other data, for example with an existing Google account. We have no influence on these data processing operations. For more information, please refer to Google's data protection information, which is linked for you below.
We also use the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the following paragraph. You can find more information on the "demographic characteristics" function at Google at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2799357?hl=en.
You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. For more information, please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). We would like to point out that on our Internet pages Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIp();" in order to anonymize the IP addresses, whereby the last octet is deleted.
Legal basis for the data processing is your consent according to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR.
If you do not want Hotjar to collect data, you can disable it here: https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out.
For more information, please visit https://www.hotjar.com/legal/policies/privacy or https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/gdpr-commitment (general information about Hotjar and data protection).
The legal basis for data processing in this case is your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR.
Retargeting and remarketing
Retargeting and remarketing are technologies which allow displaying customised advertising to visitors of a certain website even after they have left that website. For this purpose, a service provider needs to recognise Internet users beyond the scope of its own website, using cookies created by the service provider. In addition, the user’s previous usage behaviour is taken into consideration. For example, if a user looks at certain products, these or similar products may later be displayed as advertisements on other websites. This is personalised advertising which is customised to the requirements of the relevant user. Personalised advertising does not require identification of the user beyond such recognition. Therefore, we do not combine data used for retargeting and/or remarketing with other data.
We use such technologies to place advertisements on the Internet. We use the services of third party service providers for placement of advertisements. Among other things, we use Google services which allow the automatic display of products that may be interesting for Internet users. This function is implemented by cookies. For further information on this technology please refer to Google’s privacy policies at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de. Installation of cookies for Google Remarketing and Google AdWords Conversion Tracking can be prevented by settings in the user’s web browser software, by going to http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ads/ and changing the relevant settings. Regardless of the above options to prevent data processing by means of cookies in connection with Google Remarketing and Google AdWords Conversion Tracking, the use of corresponding cookies or these services by us is subject to your express consent.
The legal basis for data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR.
Use of YouTube
YouTube videos are integrated in our online offer, for the playback of which we use a plugin of the YouTube service operated by Google (hereinafter: "YouTube"). The operator of the service is Google.
We use the YouTube service in extended data protection mode in order to protect your privacy as much as possible. If you call up a web page of our online offer on which a YouTube video is embedded, Google initially only receives the information necessary for the integration and no cookies are set for usage analysis. Only when you play the embedded video does Google receive further information; Google may also set cookies to analyse your user behaviour. When you play the video, Google's YouTube servers are informed, for example, which page of our online offering you are using to play the video. As part of the technical process, personal data may be stored on Google servers in the USA. In this context, it cannot be ruled out that US security authorities may access this data.
If you are logged into your Google account, you enable Google or YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal Google profile. We therefore recommend that you only play embedded YouTube videos if you agree to the associated data processing by Google. You can prevent the allocation of data to your Google profile by logging out of your YouTube account. Further information on the handling of user data can be found in Google's privacy statement at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, which also applies to YouTube.
We use YouTube so that we can show you videos and thus better inform you about us and our services. The legal basis for the integration of the videos is our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR; however, the playing of the videos and the associated further data processing only take place on the basis of your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
You can create a customer account for our online offer on a voluntary basis. In the customer account, all information about you and your use of the various offers is managed centrally. In this way, you have the possibility to manage, update and, if necessary, also delete all data. The legal basis for the processing of the data for registration is, in the case of consent, Art. 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR. If you register with us for the purpose of fulfilling or initiating a contract, the legal basis for processing the data is also Art. 6 (1)(b) of the GDPR.
Registration for the customer account
You can register online for the customer account. To create your customer account, we collect the following information: title, first name and last name, e-mail address, company name, VAT identification number (only for Germany and EU), full street address, postal code, city, country, telephone number and a password. If no password is requested or entered during registration, we will automatically assign an initial password that you can change later. Further information can be added on a voluntary basis. We reserve the right to offer other registration options in addition to registration via the online offer, for which the regulations then apply accordingly.
In order to use the full range of functions of the customer account, it may be necessary to verify the e-mail address provided during registration. For this purpose, we will send a confirmation link to the e-mail address provided, which must be called up by you. This procedure serves on the one hand to ensure the security of your data, and on the other hand to ensure communication regarding services, delivery status or payment situation to a valid e-mail address.
Collection of data via the customer account
In the customer account, all data relating to the use of the online offers is stored, insofar as you log in with your customer account in each case. This includes, in particular, personal data (name, age, addresses, delivery and payment information), vouchers, wish lists, purchase history, communication history, search and navigation behavior, consents to individual services (such as newsletters), discount affinity and information provided explicitly or implicitly by the customer about areas of interest. We can form segments from this data and assign customers to these segments. Membership in such segments is also stored in the customer account. Location-related data such as your delivery addresses or your location are stored - insofar as you have given your consent for this.
Your current location may be used to provide you with location-based offers. If you do not want the data to be stored in your customer account in individual cases, you can use the respective offers without using your customer account. If you want to stop the storage of data in the customer account altogether, you can have your customer account deleted.
Use of the data from the customer account
We use the stored data to conduct the joint business relationship and - if you have given your consent - to provide you with interesting and relevant offers via all communication channels used by the customer. On the basis of the stored data, we try to determine which offers are relevant to you.
We will contact you within the scope of the business relationship via the contact data provided if you make use of individual services. For example, you will automatically receive order notifications or information about the delivery status; we will inform you according to your selected preferences. Contact can be established via e-mail, messages on your smartphone or other digital communication channels. In addition, you can select optional communication channels and occasions; these include, in particular, special newsletters and app messages.
Storage period and deletion
The data accrued when using the customer account is generally stored for the duration of the existence of the customer account, but can also be deleted prematurely upon request. A large part of the data can be viewed directly online and - with the exception of the e-mail address - changed or deleted. You can delete your customer account at any time by informing us of your wish for deletion, for example also via the general contact form. If you delete your data immediately, it may not be possible to restore it later if you register again.
You can apply for a job with us via the applicant portal and submit all the necessary information and documents. Use of the applicant portal is voluntary; you can also send us your application by other means, for example by e-mail or post.
When we receive an application via the applicant portal, your documents will be forwarded electronically to the relevant staff at our company. If you have applied for an advertised position, your documents will be automatically deleted six months after the end of the recruitment process, provided that no other legitimate interests prevent deletion. Such legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, obligations to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). In the case of an application without reference to an advertised position (unsolicited application), the application will be kept as long as there is a possibility that the application may be of interest. You have the option of requesting the deletion of your application at any time, even before the expiry of the retention periods provided for. In the event of a successful application, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the legal requirements. In all other cases, the legal basis for the storage of your applicant data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
Communication with us
You can contact us in various ways, for example by using our contact form.
If you wish to use the contact form in our online offer, we collect the personal data that you provide in the contact form, in particular name and email address. We also store the IP address and the date and time of the request. We process the data transmitted via the contact form exclusively for the purpose of being able to answer your enquiry or your request.
You can decide for yourself what information you send us via the contact form. The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. If you use the contact form to initiate or execute a contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
After we have processed the matter, the data will initially be stored in case of any queries. A deletion of the data can be requested at any time, otherwise the data will be deleted after the matter has been completely dealt with; statutory retention obligations remain unaffected in each case.
When you register for our newsletter, your e-mail address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe. For this purpose, you will receive regular information by e-mail on current topics as well as e-mails for special occasions, for example special promotions. The e-mails may be personalised and individualised based on the information we have about you.
To register for our newsletter, unless you have given us your consent in writing, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will only send you a newsletter by e-mail if you have previously expressly confirmed that you want us to activate the newsletter dispatch. We will then send you a notification e-mail and ask you to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR if you have expressly registered for the newsletter. Within the scope of the legal requirements, it may also be possible that you receive our newsletter from us without express consent because you have ordered goods or services from us, we have received your email address in this context and you have not objected to receiving information by email. In this case, the legal basis is our legitimate interest in sending direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR.
If you no longer wish to receive newsletters from us, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future or object to further receipt of the newsletter without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. Simply use the unsubscribe link contained in every newsletter or send a message to us or our data protection officer.

The specification of your e-mail address is necessary so that we can contact you in the event of objections to your comments and ask you to comment on them; we also store the IP address. Without this information, you will not be able to post comments. However, only the name or pseudonym you have selected will be displayed when the comment is published. The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent according to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.
In our online offer you will find links to the social networks Facebook and Instagram, LinkedIn, the video platform YouTube, the career network Xing and the employer rating platform kununu. You can recognise the links by the respective logo of the providers.

Within the scope of the possibilities offered by Facebook, we try to ensure the protection of your privacy and your private data. Insofar as your personal data is processed by us in connection with your visit to the Fanpage, the explanations in this privacy statement apply without restriction.

In terms of data protection law, it can be assumed that Meta and we are jointly responsible for the operation of the fan page and the evaluation of user data when visiting the fan page. In accordance with data protection requirements, we have reached an agreement with Meta on the demarcation of responsibility.
Meta offers the operators of Facebook fan pages the possibility of obtaining an overview of the use of the fan page and its users via the Page Insights functions. Page Insights can be used to call up and evaluate statistical data in particular. We use the data from Page Insights to make the Fanpage as attractive and efficient as possible. For this purpose, Meta provides us with data that Meta has generated itself. Meta provides further information on how the Page Insights function works and who is responsible for it at https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum.
Meta offers users who are registered with Facebook the possibility of direct communication via Facebook Messenger. If you contact us via Messenger, the data transmitted will be stored and used by us exclusively for the purpose of responding to your enquiry.
