Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour. We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.

4. Collection of personal data when visiting our website
When you use the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure its stability and security. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO: -IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transmitted in each case, website from which the request came, browser, operating system, and its interface, language and version of the browser software. Flores Distribution Europe GmbH cannot assign this data to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources; the data will also be deleted after a statistical evaluation and used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, content and functionality of our websites.
5. Contacting us by e-mail or contact form
When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address and name as well as your message text) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. Insofar as we request input via our contact form that is not required for contacting us, we have always marked this as optional. This information is used to specify your enquiry and to improve the processing of your request. This information is provided expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 Para. 1 a DSGVO. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also consent to us contacting you via this communication channel, if necessary, in order to respond to your request. You can, of course, revoke this consent at any time for the future.
We delete the data accruing in this context after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal obligations to retain data.
You can apply to our company electronically, in particular via e-mail or web forms. We will, of course, only use your details to process your application and will not pass them on to third parties. Please note that e-mails sent unencrypted will not be protected against unauthorized access.
If you have applied for a specific position and it has already been filled or we consider you equally or even more suitable for another position, we would be happy to forward your application within the company. Please let us know if you do not agree to this.
Your personal data will be deleted immediately after completion of the application process, or after a maximum of 6 months, unless you have given us your express consent to store your data for longer or a contract has been concluded. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 a, b and f DSGVO as well as § 26 BDSG.
When you use our website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive in relation to the browser you are using and which provide the party setting the cookie with certain information. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They are used to make the website as a whole more user-friendly and effective.
This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:
7.1 Transient cookies
These cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
7.2 Persistent cookies
These cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
7.3 Prevention of cookies
You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.
7.4 Legal basis and storage period
The legal bases for possible processing of personal data and its storage period vary and are presented in the following sections.
9. Data transfer
As a matter of principle, your data will not be transferred to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, or you have previously expressly consented to the transfer of your data.
Insofar as external service providers may come into contact with your personal data, we ensure within the framework of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws in the same manner. Please also note the respective data protection notices of the providers. The respective service provider is responsible for the content of third-party services, whereby we check the services for compliance with the legal requirements within the scope of reasonableness.
10. Website analysis
For the purpose of analysing and optimising our websites, we use various services which are described below. For example, we can analyse how many users visit our site, which information is most in demand or how users find the offer. Among other things, we collect data on which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. This helps us to design and improve our offers in a user-friendly way. The data collected is not used to identify individual users personally. Anonymous or at most pseudonymous data is collected. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO.
10.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland). The use includes the Universal Analytics mode of operation. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyse a user’s activities across devices.
11 Data security
We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.
