Data protection statement

Information about the collection of personal data
In the following, we inform you about the collection of personal data when you use our website. Personal data are any information that relates to you as a person, e.g. name, address, e-mail address, user behaviour.
The controller as per section 4.7 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is ABEBA Spezialschuh-Ausstatter GmbH (see also our legal notice).
Our website can be used without disclosing personal data as a rule. To the extent in which personal data are collected on our pages, this will always happen on a voluntary basis, insofar as possible.
If you contact us by e-mail, we will store the data you communicate to us (your e-mail address, possibly your name and number) to answer your question. We will delete the data accrued in the process as soon as their storage is no longer required or restrict their processing where statutory retention periods apply.
Where we rely on contracted providers for individual functions of our offer, we will inform you of the respective activities in detail below. We will also detail the prescribed criteria for the storage period in the process.

Your rights
You have the following rights against us with respect to your personal data (GDPR sections 12 ff.):

  • Right to information
  • Right to rectification or deletion
  • Right to restrict the processing
  • Right to object to the processing
  • Right to data mobility

You are also entitled to lodge a complaint about our processing of your personal data with a supervisory authority for data protection.
Insofar as you have provided us with your consent, you can withdraw it again with effect for the future at any time, without this affecting the lawfulness of the consent-based processing preceding the withdrawal.

Collection of personal data when visiting our website
Website use
If you merely use our website for information, i.e. without registering or providing us with information in other ways, we will only collect the personal data sent to our server by your browser. When you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which are technically required by us to display the website to you and ensure the stability and security (the legal basis is GDPR section 6.1.f):
IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, respectively transferred data volume, website from which the request is made, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software.
Our legitimate interest derives from the data collection purposes detailed above. Under no circumstances will we use the collected data for drawing conclusions about you as a person.

In addition to the data detailed above, cookies will be stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk, allocated to the browser you use, and send specific information to the body that installed them (in this case us). Cookies are not able to execute programs or infect your computer with viruses. They serve to make the internet offer more user-friendly and effective overall.
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They in particular include session cookies, which store a so-called session ID enabling various requests from your browser to be allocated to the shared session. This makes your computer recognizable when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close the browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a pre-defined period that can vary depending on the cookie. You can always delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser.
You can configure your browser settings as you wish and, for example, refuse the acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies. We need to point out that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in this case.

Data disclosure
Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties for other purposes than those detailed below and in this data protection statement.
We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have expressly consented to this as per GDPR section 6.1.a
  • their disclosure is necessary for pursuing our legitimate interests as per GDPR section 6.1.f, especially the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, and if there is no reason to assume that you have a preponderant legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data
  • their disclosure is legally required as per GDPR section 6.1.c., and
  • this is legally allowed and necessary for the performance of a contract with you as per GDPR section 6.1.b.

Analysis tools
The tracking measures we use are detailed below and applied on the basis of GDPR section 6.1.f. We use tracking measures to ensure a needs-oriented design and continuous optimization of our website. Other tracking measures of ours serve the statistical analysis and evaluation of our website's use to optimize our offer for you. These interests are to be considered legitimate within the meaning of the regulation cited above.
The respective purposes of the data processing and data categories are detailed in the tracking tools in question.

This website collects and stores data by way of the Matomo web analysis software (, a service provided by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, based on our legitimate interest as per GDPR section 6.1.f in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimization and marketing purposes. Pseudonymized user profiles can be created from these data and evaluated for the same purpose. This can involve the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that are locally stored in the buffer of the page visitor's internet browser. Amongst other aspects, cookies enable the internet browser to be recognized again. The data collected with the Matomo technology (including your pseudonymized IP address) are processed on our servers. 
The information generated in the pseudonymous user profile by the cookie will not be used to personally identify the visitor of this website and not be linked with personal data about the user of the pseudonym. 

If you disagree with the storage and evaluation of these data from your visit, you can object to their storage and use at any time by a mouse click. In this case a so-called opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser with the result that Matomo will no longer collect session data. Please note that complete deletion of your cookies will also delete the opt-out cookie, which you may need to reactivate again.

Data security
For security reasons and to protect confidential information in transfer, such as the requests you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection from the browser's address line changing from "http://" to "https://" and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you send us cannot be read by third parties as a matter of principle.
We furthermore apply suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction and unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are being continuously improved in line with the technological developments.
We need to point out that online data transfers (e.g. in e-mail communications) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Absolute data protection from third-party access is impossible.
