3 - General information on data processing
3.1 - Scope of the processing of personal data
a.) Data collection when calling up the website
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time you call up a website, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your pseudonymised IP address, the date and time of the call-up, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call-up. This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to the site.
b.) Contract data
We collect, process and store the data you provide when you register with us and/or decide to purchase our products. Personal data is collected via the completed registration masks/order forms with details of name, address including e-mail address as well as details of the respective order including payment details. The entry of this data and the transmission is left to the free decision of the customer. Only those personal data are collected that are absolutely necessary for the fulfilment of the contract. The collected data will only be stored for as long as is necessary and permissible within the framework of the contractual agreement and in compliance with the applicable law.
3.2 - Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain your consent for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 (1) c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3.3 - Data deletion and storage period
Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which we are subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
the categories of personal data which are processed;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
the planned duration of the storage of the personal data relating to you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;
the existence of a right to rectify or erase the personal data concerning you, a right to restrict processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
You have the right to request information on whether personal data concerning you are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.
10.2 - Right of rectification
You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis us if the personal data processed concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. We must make the rectification without undue delay.
10.3 - Right to restrict processing
You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:
if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data relating to you for a period of time which allows us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate grounds override your grounds.
If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by us before the restriction is lifted.
10.4 - Right to erasure
Obligation to delete
You may request that we erase personal data relating to you without undue delay and we are obliged to erase such data without undue delay if one of the following reasons applies:
The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which we are subject.

Information to third parties
If we have made the personal data concerning you public and we are obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, we shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers that process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested them to erase all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data.
The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary
for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which we are subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9(2)(h) and (i) and Art. 9(3) DSGVO;
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) DSGVO, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
10.5 - Right to information
If you have exercised the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against us, we are obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about these recipients.
10.6 - Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO or Art. 9 (2) a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b DSGVO and
the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.
10.7 - Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We shall no longer process the personal data relating to you unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
10.8 - Right to withdraw your consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
The supervisory authority responsible for us is:

Könitz Porzellan GmbH uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland for the information service offered here.
We would like to point out that you use this Facebook page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Alternatively, you can also access the information offered via this page on our website at [website address].
When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed information on this under the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.
The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and on the settings for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link:
Facebook's full data policies can be found here:
In what way Facebook uses data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.
When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the "login notification" function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID is stored on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you.
If you wish to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and close and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that can be used to directly identify you. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identifier. When you access interactive features of the page (Like, Comment, Share, Message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. Once you have logged in, you will again be recognisable to Facebook as a specific user.
Information on how to manage or delete information about you can be found on the following Facebook support pages:
As the provider of the information service, we also collect and process [none / the following: ...] data from your use of our service [... information on the type of data and the type, scope and purpose of processing...].

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 directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or posting a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of Facebook plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the "Facebook Blocker".
