This information also applies to subsequent, special use, unless provisions to the contrary have been concluded.
Provision of the website and creation of logfiles
Each time our internet site is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system of the accessing device.
During this process, the following data is gathered:
- Information concerning the browser type and version used
- The operating system of the user
- The internet service provider of the user
- The IP address of the user
- Date and time of the access
- Websites from which the system of the user was redirected to our internet site

The data is also saved in the logfiles of our system. This data is not saved together with other personal data of the user.
The legal basis for the temporary saving of the data and system logfiles is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR.
The saving in system logfiles takes place in order to ensure the functional capability of our website. In addition, the data allows us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. However, in such a case, the data is not evaluated for marketing purposes.
The data is deleted, once it is no longer necessary in order to fulfil the purpose for which it was gathered. In the case of data saved in logfiles, this is the case after seven days at the latest. It is possible for the data to be saved for longer than the above. In such a case, the IP address of the user will be deleted or disguised, so that the accessing client can no longer be traced.

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and which enable an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information produced by the cookies on your use of this website is, as a rule, transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. In case of the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will however be shortened first by Google within Member States of the European Union or other Member States of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports concerning the website activities and to provide other services for the website operator connected to the use of the website and the use of the internet. These purposes also correspond to our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Section 15 Paragraph 3 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR.
The personal data of the user will be deleted or anonymised after 14 months. The deletion of data which no longer needs to be retained takes place once per month.
The IP address transferred by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google. You can prevent cookie storage through settings in your browser software; we would, however, point out that in this event it is possible that you will not be able to use all of the functions of this website to their full extent.

Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
Should you have been redirected to our website via a Google advert, then with the assistance of a Google AdWords cookie, which ceases to be valid after 30 days, statistics can be generated concerning our conversion rate. This means that we are informed of how many users visit our website and how many of these purchase a product via our websites within a period of 30 days. During this process, it is not possible to trace you personally.
Information and objection:
Should you not wish to participate in the tracking procedure, you can deactivate the conversion cookies by setting your browser settings in such a way that cookies from the relevant domain are blocked:
Google Adwords: googleadservices.com
Current information concerning the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and how Google protects and processes your data in concrete terms can be found at: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/ and https://privacy.google.com/businesses/adsservices/.
We use the “Google Maps” components on our site. “Google Maps” is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google“.
Each time these components are accessed, a cookie is set by Google in order to process user settings and data when displaying the site in which the “Google Maps” components are integrated. This cookie is not generally deleted by closing the browser, rather it expires after a certain period of time, unless you delete it manually first.
Should you not agree to the processing of your data, it is possible to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and therefore prevent the transfer of data to Google. In order to do so, it is necessary to deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we wish to point out that in such a case, you may not be able to use “Google Maps” or may only be able to do so with restrictions.
The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained via it takes place in accordance with the terms and conditions of use of Google
and the supplementary terms and conditions of business for “Google Maps”
Should you be logged into your personal account at the time of accessing the “Google Maps” site, Google can record the information obtained in this way, as well as your IP address and other browser-related information and combine this with your account.
Should you wish to prevent this transfer and saving of data relating to you and your behaviour on our website by Google, you need to log out of these providers before visiting our site.
We have integrated components of the service “Instagram” on our internet sites. Instagram is a service which is classified as an audiovisual platform and which enables users to share photos and videos, as well as to distribute such data across other social networks.
The operating company of the Instagram services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this internet site which is operated by the body responsible for the processing and in which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated is accessed, the Internet browser on the IT system of the data subject is automatically instructed by the respective Instagram component to download a picture of the relevant components from Instagram. Within the framework of this technical procedure, Instagram is informed which concrete sub-page of our internet site is being visited by the data subject.
Should the data subject be logged into Instagram at the same time, then each time our internet site is accessed by the data subject and for the duration of the respective visit to our internet site, Instagram can recognise which concrete sub-page the data subject is visiting. This information is collected by the Instagram components and then assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account of the data subject. Should the data subject click on one of the Instagram buttons which are integrated into our Internet site, the data and information which are transferred in this way are assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and then saved and processed by Instagram.
Via the Instagram components, Instagram is also then informed that the data subject has visited our Internet site, should he or she be logged into Instagram at the same time as when visiting our internet site; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram components or not. Should the data subject not wish for such information to be transferred to Instagram, he or she can prevent this by logging out of his or her Instagram account before accessing our internet site.
Further information and the applicable data protection provision policies of Instagram can be accessed via the following links: help.instagram.com and www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.
Our internet site includes a contact form, which can be used in order to get in touch with us electronically. During this process, the data provided in the entry mask, as well as the date and time of the registration and the IP address are saved. Your consent is obtained for the processing of the data. Alternatively, it is possible to get in touch with us via the email address which is provided. In such a case, your personal data which is transmitted with the email will be saved.
The processing of the personal data from the entry mask or email serves the sole purpose of allowing us to the process the contact and/or conversation with you. This also represents our legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The purpose of the other personal data which is processed is to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our IT systems.
Recognising and preventing misuse
The following data is captured, processed and used by us to check automatically whether there are grounds to suspect misuse of the online shop:
- Your data for contract processing (e.g. item purchased, name, postal address, email address, delivery address, payment method and bank details)
- The user data of your visit to the online shop (e.g. information on the beginning, end and extent of your visits to the websites, as well as your click path)
- A cookie (i.e. a small text file that is saved locally in the cache of the web browser) and/or a visitor ID that can contain anonymous data of the end device used when visiting the websites (e.g. your monitor resolution or your operating system version) and through which the end devices you use can be recognised again with certain probability on other visits.
You must ensure that you inform any third parties whom you allow to use your end devices and that these third parties also either agree to the described measures or otherwise do not visit our online shop with your end devices.
The user data on your website visits are taken from a database in which they are saved under a pseudonym. In order to recognise and prevent misuse, we have engaged
Infoscore Consumer Data GmbH
76532 Baden-Baden, Germany, as a processor. If misuse is suspected, one of our members of staff checks the assessment and the grounds for suspicion. If a contract is refused, you are notified of this and the essential reasons for the decision are given to you on request. You have the opportunity to give your viewpoint by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone: +800 5201 1850 (international free phone number), whereupon the decision is re-checked by a member of staff. You can prevent such a process informally at any time with effect for the future by means of a short notification to GERRY WEBER Retail GmbH & Co. KG, Neulehenstr. 8, 33790 Halle/Westfalen, Germany, or by email to email@example.com. At our discretion, you may no longer be able to use the Gerry Weber online shop.

The data is deleted, once it is no longer necessary in order to fulfil the purpose for which it was gathered. The email address of the user will be saved for as long as the newsletter subscription is active.
The newsletters of GERRY WEBER contain so-called number pixels. A number pixel as a miniature graphic which is integrated into emails that are sent in HTML format, in order to enable a logfile recording and analysis. By means of this, a statistical evaluation of the success or lack of success of online marketing campaigns can be carried out. On the basis of the integrated number pixel, GERRY WEBER can recognise whether and when an email was opened by a data subject and which links contained in the email were opened by the data subject.
Such number pixels contained in the newsletters gather personal data, and are saved and evaluated by the controller responsible for the processing, in order to optimise the sending of the newsletter and to better tailor the content of future newsletters to the interest of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. At any time, you are entitled to revoke the declaration of consent in this respect which is issued separately, via the double opt-in procedure.
