2. Collection, processing and use of personal data

2.1 Personal data

Personal data is information about the factual or personal circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your name, your telephone number, your address, as well as all inventory data that you provide to us when you register and when you create your customer account. This does not include statistical data that we collect when you visit our web shop, for example, and that cannot be directly linked to your person. For example, these are statistics about which pages in our shop are particularly popular or how many users visit certain pages in the shop.

2.2 Collection, processing and use of your personal data

Data protection is very important to us. We therefore strictly adhere to the statutory provisions of the Data Protection Act when collecting, processing and using your personal data. We collect, store and process your data for the entire processing of your purchase, including any subsequent warranties, for our services, technical administration and our own marketing purposes. Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or billing or if you have given your prior consent. As part of the order processing, for example, the service providers we use here (such as transporters, logisticians, banks) receive the necessary data for order processing. The data passed on in this way may only be used by our service providers to fulfill their task. Any other use of the information is not permitted and is not carried out by any of the service providers entrusted by us.

We need your correct name, address and payment details for your order. We need your e-mail address so that we can confirm the receipt of your order and communicate with you. We also use this for your identification (customer login). You will also receive your order and shipping confirmation via your email address.

Your personal data will be deleted if this does not conflict with statutory retention requirements and if you have asserted a claim for deletion, if the data is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which it was stored or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons.

2.3 Use of your data for advertising purposes

In addition to processing your data to process your purchase at BENETT ACADEMY, we also use your data to communicate with you about certain products or marketing campaigns and to recommend products or services that may be of interest to you.

You can object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time as a whole or for individual measures without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact details mentioned (e.g. email) is sufficient for this.

2.4.1 Newsletter

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to send the newsletter, which means that we will only send you a newsletter by email if you have expressly confirmed to us beforehand that we should activate the newsletter service. 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. If you have clicked on the newsletter in the shopping cart, you do not need an email confirmation.

If you no longer want to receive newsletters from us later, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact details mentioned under item 1 (e.g. email, letter) is sufficient for this. Of course you will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter.


2.4.2 Sweepstakes, market and opinion research 

In the case of competitions, we use your data for the purpose of notifying you of winnings and for advertising our offers. You can find detailed information in our conditions of participation for the respective competition.

We also use your data for market and opinion research. It goes without saying that we only use this anonymously for statistical purposes and only for BENETT ACADEMY. Your answers to surveys will not be passed on to third parties or published. We do not save the answers from our surveys together with your email address or other personal data.

You consent to BENETT ACADEMY processing and using your personal data for market and opinion research for their own purposes.

You can object to the use of data for market and opinion research at any time wholly or for certain measures without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact details mentioned (e.g. email) is sufficient for this.

3. Cookies


Accepting cookies is not a prerequisite for visiting our website. However, we would like to point out that the use of the shopping cart function and the purchase of products are only possible if you allow us to set cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and that save certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. There are basically 2 different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and temporary / permanent cookies, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period of time or indefinitely. This storage helps us to design our websites and our offers accordingly for you and makes it easier for you to use them, for example by saving certain entries that you make so that you do not have to repeat them over and over again.


3.1 Which cookies does BENETT ACADEMY use?

Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session (end of the session) (hence session cookies). Session cookies are required, for example, to offer you the shopping cart function across multiple pages. In addition, we also use cookies that remain on your hard drive. If you visit us again, it will automatically be recognized that you have already visited us and which entries and settings you prefer. These temporary or permanent cookies (lifespan 1 month to 10 years) are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time. These cookies in particular serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Thanks to these files, it is possible, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests. The sole purpose of these cookies is to adapt our offer to your customer requirements in the best possible way and to make surfing with us as comfortable as possible.

3.2 Which data are stored in the cookies?

No personal data is stored in the cookies used by BENETT ACADEMY. The cookies we use can therefore not be assigned to a specific person, including you. When the cookie is activated, an identification number is assigned to it. An assignment of your personal data to this identification number is not possible at any time and will not be carried out. Your name, your IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you will not be carried out at any time. On the basis of cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymized information, for example about which pages of our shop were visited, which products were viewed, etc.

3.3 What is onsite targeting?

On the BENETT ACADEMY website, data is collected on the basis of cookie technology to optimize our advertising and the entire online offer. This data is not used to identify you personally, but is used solely for a pseudonymous evaluation of the use of the homepage. At no time will your data be merged with the personal data stored by us. With this technology, we can present you with advertising and / or special offers and services, the content of which is based on the information obtained in connection with the clickstream analysis. Our aim is to make our online offer as attractive as possible for you and to present you with advertising that corresponds to your areas of interest.

3.4 Re-targeting

Our websites use so-called re-targeting technologies. We use these technologies to make the Internet offer more interesting for you. This technology makes it possible to address Internet users who have already shown an interest in our shop and our products with advertising on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that the display of personalized, interest-based advertising is usually more interesting for Internet users than advertising that has no such personal reference. The display of this advertising material on the pages of our partners is based on cookie technology and an analysis of previous usage behavior. This form of advertising is completely pseudonymous. No personal data is stored and no user profiles are merged with your personal data.

I agree that so-called cookies are used and that usage data is collected, saved and used by me. I also consent to my data being stored in cookies beyond the end of the browser session and, for example, being able to be called up the next time I visit the website. I can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by refusing to accept cookies in my browser settings.

3.5 How can I prevent the storage of cookies?

In your browser you can set that the storage of cookies is only accepted if you agree.  As a rule, the help function in the menu bar of your web browser shows you how you can reject new cookies and switch off cookies that have already been received.

We recommend that you always log off completely after you have finished using shared computers that are set to accept cookies and flash cookies.


4. Log files


Every time the BENETT ACADEMY website is accessed, usage data is transmitted through the respective Internet browser and stored in log files, the so-called server log files. The data records stored in this process contain the following data: date and time of access, name of the page accessed, IP address, referrer URL (URL of origin from which you came to the website), the amount of data transferred, as well as product and Version information of the browser used.

The IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymized after the end of their use. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the individual details about personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person or only with a disproportionately large amount of time, costs and manpower.

We evaluate these log file data records in an anonymized form in order to further improve our offer and the shop and to make it more user-friendly, to find and correct errors more quickly and to control server capacities. For example, it can be tracked at what time the use of the shop is particularly popular and the corresponding data volume can be made available in order to guarantee you the fastest possible purchase. In addition, by analyzing the log files, we can identify and correct any errors in the shop more quickly.
