2.3.5 Cookies 

The Website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. 

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited. Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour or such of third parties) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration. 


2.3.6 Weitere Einbindung von Diensten und Inhalten Dritter (Plugins)

Within our online offer we use on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation and in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offer) in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f. DSGVO content or service offers from third parties to integrate their content and services, such as videos or contributions. Such integration always requires that the third-party providers of these contents are aware of your IP address, as they cannot send the contents to your browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required to display this content.

We endeavour to use only such content whose respective providers use your IP address only to deliver the content. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on your device and may contain technical information about your browser and operating system, referring web pages, visiting time and other details about your use of our online services, as well as being linked to such information from other sources. Facebook

We use Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups and Facebook Social Plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The pages, groups and plugins can display interaction elements or content (e.g. videos, graphics or text contributions) and are recognizable to you by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the terms “Like”, “Like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. If you call up a function of our online offer that contains such a plugin, your device establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. In doing so, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform users according to our state of knowledge. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page through our online offer. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out your IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Europe.

Weiterhin verwenden wir auf unserer Website den sog. „Facebook-Pixel“.  Dadurch können den Nutzern unserer Website im Rahmen des Besuchs des sozialen Netzwerkes Facebook oder anderer das Verfahren ebenfalls nutzende Websites interessenbezogene Werbeanzeigen („Facebook-Ads“) dargestellt werden. Mit der Verwendung des Facebook-Pixels verfolgen wir den Zweck, von uns geschaltete Facebook-Ads nur solchen Facebook-Nutzern anzuzeigen, die auch ein Interesse an unserem Internetangebot gezeigt haben. Mit Hilfe des Facebook -Pixels möchten wir also sicherstellen, dass unsere Facebook-Ads dem potentiellen Interesse der Nutzer entsprechen und nicht belästigend wirken. Ferner können wir mit Hilfe des Facebook-Pixels die Wirksamkeit von Facebook-Ads für statistische Zwecke nachvollziehen, in dem wir sehen, ob Nutzer nach dem Klick auf eine Facebook-Ad auf unsere Website weitergeleitet wurden. Rechtsgrundlage für die Nutzung des Facebook-Pixels ist Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO und hängt von deiner Einwilligung ab, die du jederzeit in deinen Cookie Einstellungen ändern kannst.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users, can be found in the Facebook privacy policy. Facebook privacy policy entnehmen. Die gemeinsame Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten findet auf Grundlage einer Vereinbarung über gemeinsame Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten statt. Vimeo

When you access the Internet pages of our website that are equipped with such a plugin, a connection is established to the Vimeo servers and the plugin is displayed. This tells the Vimeo server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When you use the plugin, such as when you click on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.

We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period, if necessary for security purposes or for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. We also store IP addresses, if we have a specific suspicion of a crime in connection with the use of our Website. In addition, we store the date of your last visit (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links, etc.) as part of your account.

Your IP address will be anonymized immediately after it has been saved by Google.

Pseudonymous user profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. The cookies have a storage period of one week. The data stored by the cookie about your use of this website will only be published on our website and server and not passed on to third parties. You can disable the storage of cookies by setting your browser software. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and stored information about your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the following browser plugin: Browser Add On to Deactivation of Google Analytics.

Additionally or as an alternative to the browser add-on you can disable tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by changing our cookie consent settings. Thereby an Opt-out cookie is installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and for this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

  • The logs with your data will be deleted at the latest 1 year after the last visit of the website. Until then, the evaluation of the collected data is necessary for an effective control of the optimization and simplification of the online offer.


Deine IP-Adresse wird anonymisiert, unmittelbar nachdem sie bei Google gespeichert wurde.

Dabei können aus den verarbeiteten Daten pseudonyme Nutzungsprofile der Nutzer erstellt werden. Die Cookies haben eine Speicherdauer von einer Woche. Die durch das Cookie erzeugten Informationen über deine Benutzung dieser Webseite werden nur auf unserem Server gespeichert und nicht an Dritte weitergegeben.

Du kannst die Speicherung der Cookies durch eine entsprechende Einstellung deiner Browser-Software verhindern. Du kannst darüber hinaus die Erfassung der durch das Cookie erzeugten und auf deine Nutzung der Webseite bezogenen Daten (inkl. deiner IP-Adresse) an Google sowie die Verarbeitung dieser Daten durch Google verhindern, indem du das unter dem folgenden Link verfügbare Browser-Plugin herunterlädst und installierst: Browser Add On zur Deaktivierung von Google Analytics.

Analytics auf unseren Seiten unterbinden, indem du deine Cookie Einwilligung änderst. Dabei wird ein Opt-out-Cookie auf deinem Gerät installiert. Damit wird die Erfassung durch Google Analytics für diese Website und für diesen Browser zukünftig verhindert, solange das Cookie in deinem Browser installiert bleibt.

Die Logs mit deinen Daten werden spätestens 1 Jahr nach dem letzten Besuch der Webseite gelöscht. Solange ist die Auswertung der gesammelten Daten für eine effektive Steuerung der Optimierung und Vereinfachung des Onlineangebots notwendig.

Die Website nutzt die Funktion “demografische Merkmale” von Google Analytics. Dadurch können Berichte erstellt werden, die Aussagen zu Alter, Geschlecht und Interessen der Seitenbesucher enthalten. Diese Daten stammen aus interessenbezogener Werbung von Google sowie aus Besucherdaten von Drittanbietern. Diese Daten können keiner bestimmten Person zugeordnet werden.

2.3.10 Google Analytics Remarketing 

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. This feature allows advertising audiences created with Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked to the cross-device capabilities of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been customized for you on one device (e.g. mobile phone) can be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC) depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on that device. If you have given permission, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device you sign in with your Google Account. To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to help define and create audiences for cross-device advertising. You can opt-out of cross-device remarketing/targeting permanently by deactivating personalized ads in your Google Account at:

The aggregation of the collected data in your Google Account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or withdraw to Google (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). For data collection operations that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you don’t have a Google Account or because you have objected to the merging), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymised analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes. Further information and the data protection regulations can be found in the Google data protection declaration at:


2.3.11 Google Ads and Google Conversion-Tracking 

This website uses Google Ads. Ads is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). As part of Google Ads, we use what is known as conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Ads customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for those Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. 

However, you will not receive information that personally identifies users. If you don’t want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this use by turning off the Google Conversion Tracking cookie slightly in your web browser under User Preferences. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. The storage of “conversion cookies” takes place on the basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR and therefore relies on your consent you can also easily change in your cookies consent settings. More information about Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the privacy policy of Google:

  • the processing is based on consent according to Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 sec. 2 lit. a or on a contract according to Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b GDPR; and 
  • the processing is carried out by automated means. 

In exercising your right to data transferability in accordance with paragraph 1, you have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from us to another controller, if this is technically feasible. 


4.6 Right to object 

According to Art. 21 GDPR you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. We do no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling grounds, worthy of protection, for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. 


4.7 Right of withdrawal of a declaration of consent given under data protection law

According to Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR, you have the right to revoke the previously granted consent to data processing without giving reasons. If no other lawfulness of the processing within the meaning of Art. 6 sec. 1 GDPR justifies further data processing, your personal data must then be deleted immediately. Otherwise, the processing of the personal data of the data subject must be temporarily restricted (blocked). 


4.8 Right to appeal to a supervisory authority 

You have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your home, work or at the place where the infringement has allegedly been committed, if you have the opinion that the processing of the data concerning you is unlawful. For Card Compact Ltd., the competent supervisory authority is the:

Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House

Water Lane, Wilmslow Cheshire, SK9 5A

5 Security of data 

We endeavor to ensure the security of your personal data under the scope of applicable data protection laws and technical options. We transmit your personal data in encrypted form. This applies to your orders and also to a customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to protect such data completely against access by third parties. When personal data is accessed by authorized personnel, access is only possible via an encrypted connection. When accessing data in a database, the IP number of the person accessing the data must also be pre-authorized to gain access. All access to personal data is blocked by default. Access to personal data is restricted to individually authorized personnel. Our security and data protection officer issues authorizations and keeps a log of the authorizations granted. Authorized employees are granted only the minimum access they absolutely need for their tasks through our role and authorization concept. Administrative processes, including system access, are logged to provide an audit trail when unauthorized or accidental changes are made. System performance and availability is monitored by both internal and external monitoring services. Databases are backed up continuously to enable recovery at any time within a 35-day retention period. Backups are stored in file storage in the same geographic location as the database. To safeguard your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures that we always adapt to state-of-the-art technology. 

Furthermore, we do not warrant that our offer will be available at specific times; disturbances, interruptions or failures cannot be excluded. The servers we use are regularly and diligently backed up. 

In the event that your data is compromised, we will notify you and the relevant regulatory authorities by email within 72 hours of the extent of the breach, the data involved, any impact on the service and the plan of action to secure the data and limit any adverse effects on the data subject. 


6 Automated decision-making 

No automated decision-making will be done on the basis of the collected personal data. 


7 Transfer of data to third parties, data transfer to non-EU/EEA countries 

As a rule, we only use your personal data in our company. In addition, your personal data will only be passed on if you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR, the transfer is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b GDPR, we are subject to a legal obligation in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. c GDPR (e.g. e.g. tax regulations, participation in the clarification of a criminal offence), or if this is necessary to protect our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms that require the protection of personal data outweigh this. If and insofar as we involve third parties in the fulfilment of contracts, these third parties will only receive personal data to the extent that the transmission is absolutely necessary for the corresponding service. In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing (“contract processing”), we contractually oblige our processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the data protection laws and this privacy policy and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject. Furthermore, it is only permitted to transfer personal data to institutions or persons outside the EU/EEA under the conditions set out in Art. 44 following GDPR. In particular, adequate protection is then guaranteed by appropriate measures, such as standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission within the meaning of Art. 46 sec. 2 lit. d GDPR.
