These data protection regulations form the basis for the processing of personal data and provide information about what type of user data is collected from customers by Check it out, how Check it out uses this data and what rights customers are entitled to. Check it out complies with applicable data protection laws and processes personal data solely for the purposes for which the data was transmitted.

The processing of personal data means any handling of personal data, such as collecting, using, storing, disclosing, transmitting or deleting the data.

When you visit the Check it Out website, statistical visitor data is automatically collected about which parts of the website the customer visits.

2.2 Data when interacting with Check it Out, for contract processing, contacting us and opening a customer account

Check it Out does not automatically collect customers' personal information, such as name, address, telephone number or email address.

On the other hand, personal data from customers is collected if a customer voluntarily provides this information as part of an order or when contacting Check it Out (e.g. via contact form or email). Mandatory fields are marked as such because in these cases Check it Out requires the data to process the contract or to process the contact and without this information the order or the contact cannot be sent.

The legal basis for collecting and processing the customer's personal data depends on the respective purpose of data processing in each individual case. In particular, the following are in question:

  • the protection of Check it Out's legitimate interests, provided that the customer's interests or fundamental rights or freedoms are not unreasonably impaired;
  • the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract; or
  • Consent of the customer at the time the personal data is collected. The customer can revoke his consent at any time. For this purpose, the customer can send a corresponding notice to the contact details described below. The legality of the data processing that has already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

4 Use of cookies and use of data

4.1 Cookies

In order to continually improve the website for customers, Check it Out may use cookies. Cookies are small pieces of software information that are stored on the customer's computer hard drive by web browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) to make it easier to use the website (e.g. language selection, shopping cart, etc.).

However, if cookies are deactivated, the functionality of the website may be restricted. Details can be found in the operating instructions or the help function of the web browser.

4.2 Use of data

The anonymized data that is recorded using cookies when you access the Check it Out website can be used for web analysis purposes, to optimize the website and to measure performance. Check it Out can use third-party providers for this purpose, some of whom have their own data protection regulations, over which Check it Out has no influence.

Check it Out uses functions of the following web analysis services:

Google Analytics
The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google evaluates the use of the website in order to compile reports on website activity and to provide Check it Out with other services related to website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by the customer's web browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Google observes the data protection provisions of the “Swiss-US Privacy Shield” agreement and has registered with the US Department of Commerce for the “Swiss-US Privacy Shield” (information on the Swiss-US Privacy Shield can be found at https://www.privacyshield .gov/Swiss-US-Privacy-Shield-FAQs ).

Further information can be found in Google's privacy policy at .

Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking
The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Further information can be found in Google's privacy policy at .

4.3 Social media content

Check it Out can use social media plugins from social networks such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter on the website.

When the customer accesses a website that contains such a plugin, the web browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to the web browser by the respective provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that the customer's web browser has accessed the corresponding Check it Out website, even if the customer does not have a profile on the relevant social network or is not currently logged in. This information (including the IP address) is transmitted from the customer's web browser directly to a server of the respective provider (possibly in the USA) and stored there. If the customer is logged in to one of the services, the social network providers can directly assign the visit to the Check it Out website to the profile in the respective social network. If the customer interacts with the plugins, for example presses the “Like” or “Share” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information is also published on the social network and displayed there to the customer's contacts.

These social network platforms have their own data protection regulations, over which Check it Out has no influence.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers on their pages as well as a contact option and the related rights of customers and setting options to protect privacy can be found in the providers' data protection information:

If the customer does not want any of these plugins to be loaded, it is recommended that they log out of the relevant social networks. Furthermore, various web browsers can be set or supplemented with add-ons (e.g. Facebook blocker) so that the social media plugins are not loaded.

If the customer would like to register for a newsletter as a registered customer, he can give his consent at the time of registration or later using the registration function in the customer account.
