General data collection and data processing

With each visit and use of the provider’s Internet pages the IP address as well as provider of the requesting computer, the website called up, as well as the data called up, date and time of the call up, transmitted data volume, notification of successful retrieval, identification data of the browser and operating system as well as the previously visited website (website from which access to the provider’s Internet offer is made) are registered by the provider or by the webspace provider as access data.

The collection and processing of the access data mentioned is only carried out for the purposes of system administration, system security, optimization of the offer as well as statistical evaluations. The provider expressly reserves the right to subsequently evaluate the access data in the event of unlawful use and illegal attack on the provider’s Internet pages, insofar as there is sufficient suspicion based on concrete indications.

Personal Data

Definition of personal data

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual. This data includes, for example, name, address, e-mail address or telephone number. Usage data are also considered personal data.

Collection of personal data

Personal data is only collected by the provider if this is legally permitted or you consent to the collection of the data.

After complete completion of the processing your data will be deleted, as far as there is no legal obligation to store them.


Some of our webpages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies makes it possible to recognise your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Third Party Content and Services 

The provider reserves the right to integrate third party services and content, such as Google Maps, YouTube videos, third party graphics, RSS feeds, etc. into its Internet offer. For the successful display of this content, a query of your IP address by the third party provider is required. The provider endeavours to integrate only those offers of third parties into its Internet offer which use the queried IP address only for the successful presentation of the respective offer. However, the use of your IP address for further statistical purposes cannot be excluded by the provider. In case of positive knowledge of this, the provider will point this out separately.


You can register on our website to receive our newsletter. We need your email address for this. In addition, in accordance with the relevant legal regulations, we must verify that you are actually the owner of the email address provided and that you would like to receive the newsletter. We therefore collect information that makes such verification possible. The information collected in this context is used to send and receive the newsletter. It has no other purpose and will not be passed on to third parties. Apart from the information required for sending the newsletter, no other data is collected from our site. Because your consent is required to send and receive the newsletter, you can revoke your consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time without giving reasons. To do so, use the “Unsubscribe Link” provided in the newsletter.

Newsletter tracking

The provider’s newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Using the embedded counting pixel, Secret Classics GmbH can detect whether and when an email was opened by the person in question and which links in the email were accessed by the person in question. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the dispatch of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. The data will not be disclosed to third parties. Persons concerned are entitled at any time to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the data controller. The provider automatically interprets unsubscribing from receiving the newsletter as a revocation.

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

This data cannot be used to identify specific people. This data is not combined with data from other sources. We reserve the right to retrospectively check this data if we become aware of specific evidence of illegal use.

Privacy statement for the use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses “cookies” as they are are called. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

For more information on how to handle user data on Google Analytics, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy:

Browser plugin

You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, we wish to point out that by doing so, you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

Order data processing

We have entered into a contract with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

IP anonymisation

We use the “Activation of IP anonymisation” function on this website. Thus your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other parties to the Agreement about the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not bought together with other Google data.

Privacy policy for the use of Google AdWords

The provider has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run adverts in both Google and Google advertising network search engine results. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords. The operating company for the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website. If the person in question arrives on our website via a Google advert, a so-called conversion cookie will be deposited on the information technology system of the person in question by Google. Cookies have already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. The conversion cookie is used to trace whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods. 

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned. The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the web pages visited by the person in question. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The person subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes. Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the link from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the required settings there.
