Privacy Policy

Statement regarding information obligation

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we process your data exclusively pursuant to the legal regulations (GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation, Telecommunications Act [TKG – Telekommunikationsgesetz] 2003). In this Privacy Statement, we provide information about the most important aspects of data processing on our website.

Contacting us

If you contact us via the form on our website or by e-mail, your data will be stored for six months for the purposes of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.

Data storage

Our website has no online store and offers no possibility for users to create an account.
Therefore, NO personal data such as name, address or credit card or bank information can be stored.

Our website offers an authentication system that allows customers to verify the authenticity of their Vapor Giant vaporizers by serial number and authentication number. This authentication system automatically stores the query number, the user’s IP address, the date and information about the browser used with each request.

This data is stored indefinitely to ensure that serial numbers cannot be checked indefinitely.
The data will not be shared. No external provider is used for the authentication system.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device by your browser. They do no harm.

We use cookies to make our offer user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

If you do not want this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you can allow this only in individual cases.

Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

Web analysis

Our website uses features of the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google LCC (located in Mountain View, California, USA). Cookies are used to analyse the use of the website by its users. The information generated thereby is transmitted to the provider’s server and stored there.

You can prevent this by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored.

We have entered into a corresponding contract for data processing with the provider.

Your IP address is detected but pseudonymised immediately (e.g., by deleting the last 8 bits). As a result, only rough localisation is possible.

Our relationship with the web analytics provider is based on the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework.

Data processing is carried out pursuant to the statutory provisions of § 96 (3) of Telecommunications Act, as well as Article 6 (1) letter a (consent) and/or letter f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.

Our focus in the sense of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our web appearance. Because the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised.

User data is stored for a period of 26 months.
