This Privacy Policy informs you of the extent to which we process your personal data (hereinafter referred to as “data”). 

B. Data processing 

We process data as part of the operation of our website. Data processing also includes disclosure by means of transmission.

In the case of data transmissions to the United States, an EU Commission adequacy decision is in place regarding the EU-US Privacy Shield. In this decision, the Commission certified that the guarantees for the transfer of data to the United States on the basis of the EU-US Privacy Shield comply with data protection standards in the EU. In the event that we transmit data to the United States, we have noted the participation of our service providers in the EU-US Privacy Shield.

Details regarding the data concerned, processing purposes, legal bases, recipients and transfers to third countries are listed below: 

a) Log file

We log your visit to our website. The following data is processed in this context: name of the website accessed, date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, the browser type and version, the operating system you are using, the referrer URL (the previously visited website), your IP address and the requesting provider. This is necessary to ensure the security of the website. We process this data on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The log file is deleted after seven days unless it is required for clarification or verification of specific violations of the law of which we have become aware within the retention period.

b) Hosting

All data to be processed in connection with the operation of the website is stored within the scope of hosting. This is necessary to enable the operation of the website. We process this data on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We use the services of web hosting providers to whom we transmit the data referred to above in order to make our website available.

c) Contacting us

If you contact us, your data (name and contact details – if you have provided them) and your communication will be processed exclusively for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. We process this data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR or Art. 6(1)(f) in order to respond to your inquiry.

d) Customer account

If you open a customer account, you agree that your master data (name, address, e-mail address, bank details) as well as your usage data (user name, password) will be stored. This allows us to identify you as a customer and allows you to manage your orders. We obtain the following consent as part of this process: 

"[ ] I would like to create a customer account. Please save my data for this purpose. I can revoke my consent at any time by sending an e-mail to service@mauritz.de.”

Your data will be processed on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.

e) Purchase transactions

We process your order data in order to fulfil the purchase contract. This data is processed accordingly on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.

We transmit your address details to the company commissioned to make delivery. If necessary in order to fulfil the contract, we will also send your e-mail address or your telephone number to the company responsible for delivery in order to coordinate the delivery date (advice note).

We transmit your transaction data (name, date of order, method of payment, date of shipment and/or receipt, amount and recipient of payment, if applicable bank details or credit card data) to the payment service provider commissioned to process the payment.

f) Website analysis and marketing

We use cookies in order to enable the use of certain functions. These are short data packets that are stored on your device and shared with other providers. Some of the cookies we use are deleted immediately after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and make it possible to recognise your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). 

You can delete all cookies stored on your device and configure most common browsers in such a way to prevent cookies from being saved. 

In this case, you may have to re-configure these settings each time you visit this website and accept that some functions may be impaired.

We use cookies in connection with the following functionalities:

Google Analytics

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We will use this stored information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for website operators and to provide other services related to the use of the website. We process the data thus obtained on the basis of our overriding interest in the optimal marketing of our online offerings in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Google will never associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. 

Please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "anonymizeIp()". This shortens IP addresses before they are sent to a server in the United States. As a rule, this precludes the association of the stored data with any identifiable person. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server in the United States and shortened there.

You can object to the collection of data at any time with future effect by using the Google Analytics deactivation add-on for browsers at

g) Integration of third-party content 

We use third-party dynamic content to optimise the presentation and offerings on our website. When visiting the website, an API is automatically used to make a request to the server of the respective content provider as part of which certain log data (e.g. the IP address of the user) is transmitted. The dynamic content is then transmitted to our website and displayed there. 

We use third-party content in connection with the following functionalities:

aa) Integration of YouTube videos

We have integrated videos from YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066, USA ("YouTube”) on our website. Log data is transferred to YouTube servers in the United States when the videos are played. Processing in this manner is performed on the basis of our overriding interest in the optimal marketing of our online offerings in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.


YouTube is certified under: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Further information is available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de

bb) Seal of Approval

The Trusted Shops Trust Badge is integrated into this website in order to display our Trusted Shops Seal of Approval and Trusted Shops’ products for buyers after they place an order. The Trust Badge and the services advertised with it are offered by Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne.

Upon accessing the Trust Badge, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) are transmitted to the Trusted Shops servers. This access data is not evaluated and is automatically overwritten at the latest seven days following the end of your visit to the relevant page. This data is transferred on the basis of our overriding interest in the optimal marketing of our online offerings in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Additional personal data will only be transferred to Trusted Shops if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or if you have already registered to use such products. The contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies in such cases.

We use certain cookies that store your IP address to analyse user behaviour on our websites, to optimise our website as well as to personalise content and advertisements.  

h) Social plugins

We use third-party plugins on our website. This allows you to inform your contacts whether you like our website or to refer content or share content. The plugins are identified by the logo of the respective third-party provider. 

When you visit our website, your data is transferred to the respective third-party providers.

If you are also a user of such a third-party provider, this data can be associated with the corresponding user account at the provider. 

It is also possible that this data may be transferred to the third-party provider even if you are not registered as a user with such a third-party provider and do not click on the plugin on our website. 

However, if data is transferred without being logged in to a third-party provider at the same time, it is not possible to make a direct association with you, e.g. via the IP address; this would only be possible via information from your provider. 

The purpose and scope of data processing by the third-party provider can be found in the respective provider’s privacy policy.

Such data is only processed on the basis of our overriding interest in the optimal marketing of our online offerings in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
