6 Voluntariness of the provision of data
The provision of personal data when visiting our website is not required by law or contract, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are also not obliged to provide the personal data when visiting our website.

 7. Data Processing - Forms & Cookies & E-mail Newsletter
The forms offered on this website can only be used with active SSL encryption (https). The data entered in these forms by website visitors is therefore only transmitted to the server in encrypted form and is thus protected against unauthorised access.

Due to the data protection-friendly development of the web construction kit of the hoster all-inkl Neue Medien Münnich, on which this website is based, and the associated renunciation of analytical functions or third-party providers, only technically necessary cookies are generated on this website. A "cookie banner" is not necessary for these cookies. No personal data is contained in the cookies. Cookies are called text files into which web servers can write information.

The registration and sending of our "Flower News" e-mail newsletter is done via the service rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße 21, 79106 Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. As with online banking, the rapidmail newsletter system has 256-bit SSL encryption. This ensures that no external access to the newsletter recipient data is possible. The recipient data cannot be intercepted by third parties during transmission. The data you provide when registering for the newsletter will be passed on to rapidmail. This transfer takes place in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and serves our legitimate interest in using an effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data entered by you for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. E-mail Address) will generally be stored on the servers of rapidmail.

If you register for our e-mail newsletter, we will send you information about our offers at irregular intervals. Only your e-mail address is required for sending the newsletter. The provision of further data such as first name and last name is voluntary and is used to be able to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter once you have expressly confirmed that you consent to receiving newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter in the future by clicking on an appropriate link.

By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your E-mail address at a later date. The data collected by us when you register for the newsletter is used exclusively for the purpose of addressing you in an advertising manner by way of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to the responsible person named at the beginning. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data in a way that goes beyond this and is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

8. Integration of Third-Party Services and Content
Social media plug-ins - No social media plug-ins are currently used on our website.

9. Duration of Processing
We store personal data that we process for contractual purposes within the framework of the retention periods under tax law and commercial law. We store the personal data otherwise provided to us by you for as long as we need it to process your request, unless this data is subject to longer retention periods under tax and commercial law.

10. Right of Objection
You have the right to object at any time to personal data processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, provided that there are reasons for the objection arising from your particular situation and provided that there are no compelling legitimate reasons to continue to collect the data.
If we process personal data from you for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to the processing of the personal data for the purpose of such marketing at any time without giving reasons.

11 Further Data Subject Rights
You have the right to request information free of charge about the personal data we hold about you. In addition, if you have given your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent. We would like to point out that a revocation does not change the lawfulness of the processing granted until the revocation (no retroactive effect of the revocation).
Furthermore, you have the right to correction, blocking, transfer, deletion or restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, please contact us directly at wimp(at)flowerenergies.com or send us your request by post. You also have the right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority responsible for us in justified cases.

12. Online Dispute Resolution
