YVES Hamburg


We are very pleased about your interest in our company. The following text applies equally to ‘m/f/d’.

Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of the YVES. The use of the Internet pages of the YVES is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the YVES. By means of this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the YVES has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

  1. Definitions
    The data protection declaration of the YVES is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    d) Restriction of processing
    Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
    e) Profiling
    Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
    f) Pseudonymization
    Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
    g) Controller or person responsible for the processing
    Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
    h) Processor
    Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.
    i) Recipient
    Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom Personal Data is disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.
    j) Third
    Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
    k) Consent
    Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject’s wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

    Website: https://yves-hamburg.com
  3. Cookies
    The Internet pages of the YVES use cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.
    Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.
    Through the use of cookies, the YVES can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
    By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in terms of the user. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of an Internet site that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the Internet site, because this is handled by the Internet site and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online store. The online store remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.
    The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
  4. Collection of general data and information
    The website of the YVES collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
    When using these general data and information, the YVES does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. This information is rather required in order to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for these, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the YVES analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
  5. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
    The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

  12. Legal basis of processing
    Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO are based.
    Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO are based. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
  13. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
    If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
  14. Duration for which the personal data are stored
    The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
  15. Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
    We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
    Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
    Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
  16. Existence of automated decision making
    As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
