60seconds offers you a wide range of services, which you can also use in a wide range of ways. Depending on whether you contact us online, by phone or otherwise and on which services you use, various data from different sources may come into play. Much of the data we process is provided by you yourself when you use our services or contact us, for example when you register and provide your name or email address or address. We do, however, also receive technical device and access data which is automatically collected when you interact with our services. This may, for example, be information on which device you are using. We collect further data using our own data analyses (e.g. within the framework of market research studies and customer evaluations). We may also receive data on you from third parties, for example for credit rating agencies and payment service providers.
When we talk about “your data”, we are referring to personal data. This includes all information which allows us to identify you straight away or by combining it with other information. Examples: Your name, your telephone number, your customer number, order numbers or your email address. All information which cannot be used to identify you (even by combining it with other data) is classified as non-personal data. Non-personal data is also referred to as anonymous data. If we combine your personal data with anonymous data, all the data in this record counts as personal data. If we delete the personal data from a piece of information or a record on your person, the remaining data in this record no longer counts as personal data. This procedure is referred to as anonymization. The following generally applies: If we request that you share particular personal information with us, you may of course refuse to do this. You can decide which information you share with us. We may, however, be unable to provide you with the desired services (at least not optimally). For example, you cannot have a package delivered without giving a delivery address. If particular information is required in connection with a service (mandatory information), we will inform you by marking it accordingly.
Profile information is personal and demographic information on your person (so-called master data), along with your individual interests, which you share with us when registering for a customer account. Your profile data includes, for example:
Mandatory information is usually your name, your email address and a password you choose yourself. Your email address and the password will later constitute your login details.
Other mandatory information may also be required for the use of access-restricted, fee-based or personalized services, such as your date of birth or your title (e.g. in order to transfer you to the relevant 60seconds platform page for your gender) or your favorite brands and clothing styles.
Profile data may also include further information on your person and your interests. These may be collected in the process of registering for the service, or only subsequently. This is the case, for example, if you later add voluntary information to your profile or you wish to use your customer account to register for a service which requires additional mandatory information.
If you contact us, we collect your data. Depending on how you contact us (e.g. by phone or by email), your contact details may include your name, postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, detail on your social network profiles (for example we receive your Facebook ID if you contact us via Facebook), user names and similar contact details.
If you order something or shop from 60secondswebsite or app, we collect your shopping data. Depending on the type of purchase and processing status, shopping data may include the following information:
We offer you the common payment methods in online retail - especially advance payment, credit card, PayPal or invoice. We collect the payment details shared by you in order to execute the payment. We receive further payment details from external payment service providers and credit agencies which we work with in executing payments and carrying out credit checks. We only forward information to our payment service providers which is necessary for processing payment.
Payment details include:
The payment details also include other information directly connected to payment processing and credit checking. This applies, for example, to information which external payment service providers use for identification such as your PayPal ID (if you are paying with PayPal).
With registered seat at is responsible for executing payments, managing claims and performing credit checks in connection with all private purchases from the 60seconds platform and other fee-based Services from 60seconds.
Creditworthiness data consists of our own records on your previous payment behavior towards 60 seconds and of score values which we collect on you from external credit agencies. Creditworthiness data makes statements on a person’s estimated capacity and willingness to pay. This helps companies to avoid defaults which result when customers cannot fulfill their payment obligations or cannot do so in good time. Taking creditworthiness data when choosing payment methods is also intended to prevent us offering our customers payment methods which cannot be offered to them and our customers entering into payment obligations which they cannot fulfill themselves. Creditworthiness data is normally collected from so-called credit agencies. The credit agencies then use various information to calculate a so-called score value which takes into account existing payment obligations and any previous defaults. Score values are statistically justified estimates of the future risk of a person defaulting and are represented as a numerical value, such as a percentage. We only have limited influence on processing of data by external credit agencies (e.g. if we provide credit agencies information on payment obligations which have not been fulfilled).
Cooperation with external payment service providers and credit agencies is on a country-specific basis, in order to take country-specific features and requirements into account.
When you interact with our Services, data arises which we use to find out which content, topics, products, product types, brands or styles you are interested in. For example, we can use shopping data, wish list content and your age (if this information is available to us) and comparison with users with similar features to find out which styles and product categories you are interested in. Thus, we can show the products which will probably be most relevant to you first the next time you perform a search.
Along with the interests you have directly shared with us, we can also derive your interests from other data we have collected. If, for example, you repeatedly visit a particular area of the 60 seconds platform, we can extrapolate your interests from your access data by means of usage analysis (e.g. We can deduce that you might be interested in sport if you frequently visit the category "sportswear" or order products from this category).
For this purpose, we also receive demographic information and statistics on our users from our external advertising partners (such as age, gender, region), as well as device and access data and interests. We take care that our advertising partners only provide 60seconds with aggregate, encrypted and anonymous data, so that we cannot assign the data to any particular person, especially any particular user. This information may help us to understand our users better, perhaps within the framework of customer structure analyses and user segmentation.
You can find further information on the processing of your data for advertising purposes under "how does 60seconds use my data for marketing? ".
If you communicate with us or other users regarding products (e.g. Product evaluations) and other topics by phone, post, social media, contact forms or any other medium, we collect the content of your messages.
We may forward your messages to the office responsible for your concerns, perhaps to partner companies or brands. If your messages are forwarded to another company (e.g. If you provide us with feedback on the manufacturer of a product), you of course have the option to tell us that the data should only be used by 60seconds. If so, we will not forward your information to the responsible office, or will only do so without your personal information, provided that your concerns can be processed in this way.
If you transmit messages to us for other users via functions provided for this purpose (e.g. product evaluations), we may publish these within the scope of our Services.
Recording of telephone conversations: telephone conversations, for example with our hotline, will only be recorded with your consent for the purposes covered by your consent (e.g. Quality assurance, training purposes). Consent to recording of conversations is of course voluntary. You may withdraw consent at any time with effect for the future, for example by asking the employee on the phone to stop the recording.
You can find further information under “Which data protection rights do I have?”.
Social media functions may be integrated into 60seconds’ Services. These may include messenger Services and so-called social plug-ins or social logins, such as “login with Facebook”. If you activate or use these functions and are a member of the relevant social network, we may receive data from their respective operators which allows us to identify you.
We usually receive the following data from social networks:
We will also not receive any data from the social network providers which could be used to identify or contact you unless you provide your consent.
In connection with advertising via social networks we generally only receive general demographic and interest-related information to make our adverts more efficient, e.g. that a particular advert was clicked on by a man from Rome between the ages of 25 and 34 and interested in shopping and clothes. This information and these estimates come from the operator of the social network.
Please also take into account the notice on the processing of social network data in connection with social network functions under “Info on websites and apps”.
60seconds currently uses Facebook’s Messenger service and social plug-ins/logins from the following social networks:
For particular purposes, we also collect data on your device’s current location when you use our Services. Two different technologies are used for this.
If you approve your device’s location Services for an app, a website or another online service by 60 seconds, 60seconds processes the location data collected by your device and provided to us in order to provide you with location-specific Services.
Example: Some of our apps show you shops in your area or suggest products which correspond to your current location.
If you allow a 60seconds app to access your device’s location Services, your location may be regularly processed by 60seconds (e.g. even if you are not currently using the app). This serves to improve the user experience, for example by loading location-dependent content faster when you use the app at your location, or displaying location-based push notifications. We do not use this data to produce any motion profiles. You can obtain further information on location-based Services if required.
We also collect location data derived from your device’s IP address (down to the city level). An anonymized IP address shortened to three characters is used for this purpose. Therefore, this cannot be used to identify your internet connection or device.
What are IP addresses: Each device connected to the internet must be assigned a multiple-character, unambiguous number (example: 188.8.131.52). This is referred to as an IP address. The first three characters of an IP address are usually assigned to a particular region or a particular internet provider. The approximate location of the internet connection can therefore be derived from the IP address.
This procedure (so-called geolocalisation) is used by us and many other online shops, for example to identify fraud and suspicious orders (e.g. it may be suspicious in particular situations if an order from your customer account uses an IP address from a country where you have never previously made any orders).
Some of our service-specific applications allow you to share photos and other personal content with us or other users, in order to communicate with us or other users or to personalize Services (e.g. by uploading a profile picture, using the 60seconds app’s photo search or communicating with a stylist).
If you take part in a campaign (e.g. competition) or survey (e.g. customer satisfaction survey for market research purposes) offered by 60seconds, we ask you for personal information.
For example, if you take part in a competition we generally ask you for your name and email address, so that we can inform you if you win and to ensure that each participant only takes part in the competition once.
We may ask you for further information for some campaigns and surveys. This may be the case, for example, if we carry out a campaign with a partner or brand it needs information on you in order to make the prize available to you. In such cases we will, however, always inform you separately about the information required and how we use it.
60seconds uses the central 60seconds’ central applicant management system to accept and process job applications.
When using online and mobile Services, it is inevitable that technical data will arise and be processed, in order to provide the functions and content offered and to display them on your device. We refer to this data collectively as “device and access data”. Device and access data arise each time you use an online and mobile service. It doesn’t matter who the provider is. Device and access data arise, for example, when you use:
On the one hand, 60seconds collects device and access data from online and mobile Services offered by 60seconds itself. On the other, 60seconds may receive device and access data from online and mobile Services provided by other companies, insofar as they are 60seconds advertising partners or participate in the same online advertising networks (e.g. the “Google advertising network”). You can find further information under “How does 60seconds use my data for advertising?”.
Device and access data include the following categories:
In this chapter, we also inform you of the legal basis on which we process data for the individual purposes. Depending on the legal basis for our processing of your data, you may have additional data protection rights alongside your permanent rights such as the right to information. For example, in individual cases you have the right to object to the processing of your data. You can find further information under “Which data protection rights do I have?”
In so far as the purpose relates to the execution of a contract agreed with you or the provision of a service requested by you, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) b GDPR. Otherwise, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby we may use your personal data for the above purposes if we deem it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests.
We process your data for the provision of comfortable and useful Services which correspond as well
as possible to your needs and interests. Because the 60seconds platform’s range encompasses
of thousands of products and thousands of brands, it is necessary that we present our content and
offers in a needs-based manner so that you can find products you are actually interested in. This
requires a user-specific evaluation of the relevance of products and content.
To personalize shopping in the 60seconds platform we use device and access data which we collect for usage analysis. Alongside this, we also use device and access data which we receive from advertising partners while you visit the 60seconds platform. If you are logged in with your customer account while visiting the 60seconds platform, we also use profile data, interest data and shopping data to personalize your shopping experience. We refer to this form of shopping personalization as on-site optimization. Only such shopping personalization allows us to present you with suitable search results, product suggestions, style recommendations and other content corresponding to your actual interests. Without such shopping personalization, as carried out today by many online shops as standard, your search for relevant products would be less convenient and more protracted and the utility of our range for you would be lower. Shopping personalization does not, of course, prevent you from accessing all content. It does, however, allow you to see content which is more relevant to you more quickly.
The legal basis for the processing of your data for shopping personalization within the framework of personalized services is Article 6 (1) b GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of your data within the framework of on-site optimization is Article 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interests are in the above purposes.
We process the data collected on our customers for scientific research in the areas relevant to 60 seconds. This includes in particular the research areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence, natural language processing and deep learning. Research at 60seconds concentrates on solutions to real, everyday online shopping problems and is meant to serve the improvement and development of the existing Services range. In this way, for example, we can develop apps which can suggest products targeted to your interests and needs and recognize styles and assign products which correspond to your actual interests.
In doing this, of course, we observe recognized scientific data protection standards. This also means that we only process your data in summarized, anonymized or pseudonymized form for research purposes, for example by replacing all identifiable data such as your name with other values.
Research at 60seconds includes the following purposes:
The legal basis for the processing of your data within the framework of the research purposes described above is Article 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interests are in the above purposes.
In order to combat the risk of data security breaches, data pertaining to users of our Services is encrypted in transmission. This applies both to ordering and to registering for a customer account. For this we use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer). Encryption prevents third parties from viewing the data. To provide additional protection from external attacks, we rely on special security technologies which constantly check our systems and identify and report anomalies. We also use technical and organizational measures to secure our systems against loss, destruction, unauthorized access or distribution of customer data by unauthorized persons. In this manner we wish to keep the risk of unauthorized access as low as possible, because protecting your data is our top priority. However, we - like other companies - cannot guarantee absolute protection.
We also use technical and manual procedures for fraud prevention in order to protect us and our users from misuse of data, especially by fraudulent orders. To this end, 60seconds summarizes and evaluates your device and access data (including IP address, identifiers, user behavior), shopping data and payment details (including address and other creditworthiness data from external credit agencies) as well as the change history of your profile information (e.g. when your delivery address was last changed) under a pseudonym when executing an order. The record is also compared with your previous usage and order habits. We also compare it to general records from all 60seconds orders involving confirmed or suspected fraudulent actions. This comparison allows us to identify fraud patterns and to prevent fraud and identity theft by comparing patterns.
Following registration for a customer account, 60seconds transmits your name and your addresses as given in the profile to external credit agencies. This serves to ensure that you are actually registered and can be reached at the disclosed addresses. Typical indicators which - usually in combination - may increase the probability of attempted fraud include:
If our security system suspects attempted fraud or an increased risk of fraud, the relevant procedure will be forwarded to the 60seconds fraud team for manual investigation. Appropriate preventative measures will be taken in view of the risk of fraud (e.g. temporary blocking of the customer account or restriction of payment methods offered).
If your data is processed to prevent fraud at your expense, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) b GDPR. This processing of your data otherwise occurs on the basis of Article 6 (1) f GDPR, based on our legitimate interest and that of other users in the identification and prevention of fraud and clarification of criminal offences.
Before we show you the payment methods available for a purchase, 60seconds will carry out a risk assessment. Your previously collected purchase data, payment details, creditworthiness data, data on your previous payment behavior as well as your profile information (such as surname, first name, delivery and billing address, email address, date of birth) will be used to carry out the risk assessment. The assessment and evaluation will be carried out automatically using statistically justified estimates of the default risk in relation to the payment methods we offer. Within the framework of the risk assessment, 60seconds also transmits your data to external credit agencies to receive general information from these on the evaluation of the payment-specific default risks (e.g. on whether your address is plausible and up-to-date) as well as, in individual cases, creditworthiness data, perhaps on open invoices and circumstances directly resulting in a risk of payment default (e.g. insolvency, deferral due to inability to pay). Which specific creditworthiness data is taken into account in the course of the risk assessment may vary from country to country.
The default risk is assessed separately for each payment method in the form of an estimate. If the risk assessment yields a positive result, we can offer all the payment methods we generally offer. Otherwise, we will only offer you particular payment methods. Factors which may influence the availability of a payment method include:
The risk assessment will not mean that you are not offered any payment method. If you are not in agreement with the payment methods offered, you can inform us of this in writing by letter or email at email@example.com. We will then check the decision again, taking your viewpoint into account.
If you have given consent to the processing of your data as described above for the choice of payment methods, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) a GDPR (Consent). Otherwise, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) f GDPR, based on our legitimate interest in avoiding default risks.
Notice of withdrawal: You have the right to withdraw consent to the collection of creditworthiness data for selection of the payment method. You can find more information under “Which data protection rights do I have?”
In addition to the risk assessment 60seconds processes your data before showing you the payment methods we make available for a purchase from us, in the course of an automated credit check. This check serves to prevent payment defaults and to ensure our security, as it allows us to recognize attempted fraud and other offences.Along with data already in 60seconds’ possession, creditworthiness data from external credit agencies in the form of score values are also used. Score values are statistically justified estimates of the future risk of a person defaulting and are represented as a numerical value, such as a percentage. To this end, 60seconds transmits on our behalf the personal data required for a credit check (generally your first and last name, your address and if necessary your date of birth) to the external agency. Address data may also be taken into account when calculating your score. The credit agency uses the data transmitted by us to correspondingly assess your creditworthiness on the basis of mathematical-statistical procedures.
Depending on the result of the credit check, i.e. whether it is positive or negative, we will show you appropriate payment methods which you can use to continue and complete your purchase. If you are not in agreement with this, you can inform us of this in writing or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then check the decision again, taking your viewpoint into account.
The legal basis for the credit check described above is Article 6 (1) b GDPR, because it is necessary for the execution of necessary pre-contractual measures. This processing of your data otherwise occurs on the basis of Article 6 (1) f GDPR, based on our legitimate interest and that of other users in the avoidance of payment defaults, the identification and prevention of fraud and the clarification of criminal offences.
We use your data, also within the framework of data analysis, for advertising and market research, in particular for the following purposes:
Depending on the purpose, we use the data we have stored for data analysis. For example, we use summarized (aggregated), statistical, depersonalized (anonymized) profile information or data which can only be assigned to persons via further intermediate steps (pseudonymized profile information) as well as shopping and device and access data in order to understand and analyze purchasing processes using data analysis. This gives us anonymous or pseudonymized findings on our users’ general usage behavior.
We process your data on the basis of balancing of interests to protect our legitimate interests or those of third parties (such as advertising partners, brands or dealers which participate in our programs). 60seconds’ legitimate interest or that of third parties in data processing derives from the relevant purposes and is, unless otherwise indicated, of a competitive and economic nature.
If data processing for the above purposes occurs with your consent, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) a GDPR (consent). This data processing data otherwise occurs on the basis of Article 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby the legitimate interests are for the above purposes.
We use your data for product and technology development including the development and improvement of personalized services. In doing this we use aggregated, pseudonymized or anonymized data and machine learning algorithms, perhaps from our research, which facilitate estimates, prognoses and analysis in the interests of our users. In this way, for example, we can develop apps which can suggest products targeted to your interests and needs and recognize styles and assign products which correspond to your actual interests. Data is processed in relation to product and technology development particularly for the following purposes:
The legal basis for the processing of your data for product and technology development purposes is Article 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interests are in the above purposes.
Data processing for business management and business optimization also includes, for example, the following purposes:
The legal basis for the processing of your data for business management and optimization is Article 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interests are in the above purposes. Where we process your data on the basis of legal specifications, e.g. retention obligations and money laundering tests under tax law, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) c GDPR.
If you have given us your consent for the processing of personal data, your consent is the primary basis of our data processing. Which of your data we process on the basis of your consent depends on the purpose of your consent. Typical purposes include:
Notices of withdrawal: You can withdraw consent at any time with effect for the future, e.g. by e-mail, letter or fax.You can find further instructions under “Which data protection rights do I have?”
If data protection law allows it, we can use your data for new purposes such as carrying out data analyses and developing our Services and content without your consent. It is a prerequisite for this that these new purposes which the data is to be used for were not fixed or foreseeable when the relevant data was collected and the new purposes are compatible with the purposes for which the relevant data was originally collected. For example, new developments in the legal or technical sphere and new business models and Services may lead to new processing purposes.
The development and provision of personalized functionalities and Services for you is our top priority. We offer you an individual shopping experience and a range tailored to your individual interests, regardless of location, time and devices used. The processing of your data to personalize our service is therefore an integral part of 60seconds’ service.
Personalized services allow us to offer you better, more practical and more secure Services. To this end we use the data we have stored about you in order to determine your needs and interests. On this basis we can offer you more relevant content corresponding to your needs and interests. Of course, you still have access to all content. Personalization allows you to see content which is more relevant to you more quickly, or content is specially presented to you (e.g. in the form of individual product recommendations).
Most of our personalized services require you to set up a customer account so that we can save data we collect on you at a central location.
Data which we collect about you is saved on your customer account, along with your customer number (customer ID). The customer number is a randomly generated sequence of numbers which does not contain any personal data. Your data is associated with your customer number, in order to link you to your customer account. The customer number also functions as a pseudonym.
Personalized content is generally selected on the basis of all data stored on your customer account. If device and access data is used which is not saved on your customer account, these are only pseudonymized for the relevant personalization (so e.g. in connection with your customer number, but not in connection with your named or other directly identifying profile data) for the duration of the usage.
You can view most of the data we have stored on your customer account at any time. If required you can also edit this data on your account and influence personalization, perhaps by providing your preferences.
If personalization is based on device and access data, you can prevent the collection of this data by deactivating the collection of this data by tracking tools. Please bear in mind, however, that you will receive less or no personalized content and Services. Please bear in mind that the data used for personalized services are also needed for other purposes (including the provision of our Services), in which case the collection of the data required will continue to be collected. However, the advertising presented to you will then not be personalized.
We use your data to provide access to the 60seconds website and app. Along with the device and access data collected whenever you use these Services, the type of data processed as well as the processing purposes depend especially on how you use the functions and Services provided via our Services. We also use the data collected when you use our Services to find out how our online offering is used. We use this information and other information in the course of shopping personalization to improve our Services and for personalized advertising.
You can find the responsible service provider in the imprint of the relevant website or app.
We generally collect all the data which you directly share with us via our Services.
Whenever you access our Services and databases, we collect device and access data and record it in so-called server log files. The IP address it contains is anonymized shortly after the end of the relevant session, as soon as storage is no longer required to maintain the functionality of the relevant website.
If it is available and activated on your device, we also collect a device-specific ID number (e.g. a so-called “promo ID” if you are using an Android device or an “ad ID” if you are using an Apple device). This device ID is issued by the manufacturer of your operating system and can be read by website and app and used to present content on the basis of your usage habits. If you do not want this, you can deactivate it at any time in your device’s browser settings or system settings.
We set up password-protected personal access for users who register for a customer account or another service. If you do not log out again after logging in with your login details, most services automatically keep you logged in. Depending on the type of service, a cookie or similar technology is used for this. This function allows you to use part of our services without having to log in again every time. For security reasons, however, you will be asked to enter your password again if, for example, you want to change your profile information or submit an order. You can find more information under "personalized services"
Our Services may contain social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from various social networks. These plug-ins allow you, for example, to share content or recommend products. The plug-ins are deactivated as standard and therefore do not send any data. You can activate the plug-ins by clicking on the corresponding button (e.g. “activate social media”. The plug-ins can also be deactivated again with a click. If the plug-ins are activated, your web browser sets up a direct connection to the web servers of the relevant social network. The content of the plug-ins is then transferred by the social network directly to your web browser and integrated by the latter into our website. Integrating the plug-ins allows the social network to receive the information that you have called up the relevant page of our internet offering and can collect your device and access data. If you are logged into the social network, the latter may also assign the visit to your account with the relevant social network.
If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the Facebook “like” button or making a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted by your browser directly to the social network and stored there. The purpose and scope of the data collection, and the further processing and use of the data by the particular social networks and your rights and configuration options concerning this to protect your privacy, can be found in the privacy notices of the respective social networks and websites. You can find the links to these below. Even if you are not registered with the social networks, websites with active plug-ins may send data to the networks. An active plug-in will place a cookie with an ID each time you call up the website. Because your web browser sends this cookie without being asked every time you connect to a server, the social network could in principle create a profile of which websites the user belonging to the ID had called up. And it would also be quite possible to assign this ID to a person, for example if they later registered with the social network.
Our Services may offer you the option of registering with us directly using your social network accounts. If you wish to use this function, you will first be forwarded to the relevant social network’s offering. There you will be asked to log in with your user name and password. Of course, we do not ourselves take note of your login details. If you are already logged in, this step will be skipped.
The relevant social network then notifies you and asks you to confirm which data are transmitted to us e.g. public profile, friends list, email address and current residence). We use the data transmitted to create your customer account, but will not, of course, save your friends list, for example. No further permanent connection between your customer account and your social network account will take place. We also receive social network data from the providers of the relevant social networks.
Our Services use the device and access data from the usage analysis, which are collected when you use our service, for shopping personalization. Depending on the type of service, this may include common tracking technologies using tracking pixels and identification cookies or similar Ids (so-called tagging). In addition, our advertising partners may collect your device and access data in this way, in order to provide us with information on your interests and demographic data (such as age, gender, region) during your use of our Services. This allows us to present you with advertising and/or particular offerings and Services which correspond to your interests (for example product recommendations based on the fact that you have only viewed trainers in the last few days).
Our goal when doing this is to make our offering as attractive to you as possible and to present you with advertising corresponding to your interest areas. Of course, you can continue to use all content and functions. This on-site optimization does, however, allow us to first show you content and functions which are more relevant for you. On-site optimization is carried out automatically by our systems, which recognize that users have repeatedly called up products and content from particular categories.
If you do not want on-site optimization, you can deactivate this function at any time:
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which are saved by your web browser and which save particular settings and data for exchange with our web server. A distinction is generally made between two different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and temporary/permanent cookies which are stored for a longer period. Storing this data helps us to design our websites and Services for you accordingly and makes them easier for you to use, for example by saving particular entries so that you do not have to repeat them constantly.
The cookies used by our website may come from 60 second sor advertising partners. If you only wish to accept the 60seconds cookies, but not our advertising partners’ cookies, you can choose the corresponding setting in your browser (e.g. “block third-party cookies). The help function in your web browser’s menu bar generally shows you have to reject new cookies, and to turn off cookies which have already been received. We recommend that you completely log out after you finish using our website on shared computers which are set to accept cookies and Flash cookies.
Our Services use three categories of cookies:
Necessary cookies: These cookies are required for optimal navigation and operation of the website. For example, these cookies are used to implement the basket function, such that the goods in your basket stay saved while you continue with the purchase. The necessary cookies also serve to save particular inputs and settings which you have made so that you don’t have to constantly repeat them, and to adapt 60seconds content to your individual interests. Only limited use of the website is possible without necessary cookies.
Statistical cookies: These cookies collect device and access data to analyze the use of our website, such as which areas of the website are used how (so-called surfing behavior), loaded and whether errors occur. These cookies only contain anonymous or pseudonymous information and are only used to improve our website and to find out what our users are interested in, and to measure how effective our advertising is. Statistical cookies can be blocked without adversely affecting the navigation and operation of the website.
Marketing cookies (“tracking cookies”): These cookies contain identifiers and collect device and access data, in order to adapt personalized advertising on 60seconds website to your individual interests. Our advertising partners who operate online advertising networks also collect device and access data on our website. This allows us to display personalized advertising on other websites and in other providers’ apps which fits your interests (so-called retargeting). Marketing cookies can be blocked, in your browser, without adversely affecting the navigation and operation of the website. Shopping personalization may, however, not be possible.
60seconds app is available on app platforms run by third parties, so-called app stores (e.g. Google Play and Apple App Store). Download may therefore require prior registration with the relevant app store. 60seconds has no influence on the processing of your data in connection with your registration with and use of these app stores. The operator of the relevant app store therefore has full responsibility. Please get information if required from the relevant app store operator directly.
If your operating system has an integrated function for sharing app content, you can call this up in our apps via the share or recommend button in order to share content or recommend products. Depending on which functions your device or operating system has and how you have configured your device, you can also use social networks to share content.
We would like to point out that the share functions used by our app are operating system-side functions. We do not receive any information on the recipients and content of your communication. You can get more information on the share functions and your configuration options from the manufacturer of your device.
Which social networks are available to you for sharing content depends on which social networks you are a member of and how you have configured your membership account and device. You can find further information in the relevant privacy policies of the social networks you use.
The functions of our app use your device’s location Services to collect location information. This is for the purpose of offering you app-based Services and content tailored to your current location. For example, an app can show you transactions in your area and suggest products to you which are suited to the weather at your current location. If you allow the app to access location Services, your location will be regularly transmitted to us for these purposes. We do not use this data to produce any motion profiles.
Our apps can inform you using push notifications of particular events or topics even if you are not currently using the app. Push notifications are an app-specific form of notification which we can use to address you directly. If you do not want this, you can deactivate the push service at any time using your device settings and in the settings within the app.
If you activate the push notification service, your device will be assigned a device-specific push ID. For technical reasons, no push notifications can be sent without a push ID. Push Ids are only encrypted, randomly generated sequences of number.
For some functions, our apps must be able to access certain interfaces and data on your device. Depending on which operating system you use, this may require your express consent. Below we explain to you which authorizations (if these are relevant for the processing of your data) our apps may request and for which kind of functions these authorizations are required. You can change your authorization settings in your devices’ system settings.
Our websites and apps contain cookies and similar tracking technologies from advertising partners which operate an online advertising network. This also allows our advertising partners to collect your device and access data and to present you with personalized advertising on other websites and in other providers’ apps targeted to your interests (e.g. advertising based on which products you have previously viewed on the 60seconds platform).
You can deactivate the processing of your data for retargeting at any time:
We use common tracking technologies to evaluate device and access data. This allows us to find out how our offering is being used by our users in general. We do this using identification cookies and similar identifiers. This allows us to find out, for example, which content and topics are particularly popular, when our Services are used the most, from which regions (down to the city level) our Services are used and which browsers and devices our users generally use.
We may also carry out so-called A/B tests in the course of usage analysis. A/B tests are a special kind of usage analysis. A/B testing (also known as split testing) is an approach to comparing two versions of a website or app in order to find out which version performs better, is more popular or lets users find their desired content quicker. Producing a version A and version B and testing both versions provides data which makes it easier and faster to make changes to Services and content.
You can deactivate the processing of your data for usage analysis at any time:
We offer you various newsletter Services. When you register for a newsletter service you will receive information on the topics dealt with by the individual newsletters. There are also service-specific newsletters, which are integral components of a particular service. When you use our newsletters we also connect device and access data.
When sending out our notifiable newsletters (such as the 60seconds platform newsletter), we use the so-called double opt-in procedure or single opt-in procedure (country-dependent), i.e. we will only send you the newsletter if you have given explicit prior consent to us activating the newsletter. If a double opt-in is required in your country, you must also have confirmed that the email address you have shared with us belongs to you. For this purpose, we will send you a notification email and ask you to confirm by clicking on one of the links in this email that you are the owner of the email address you have shared with us. We may waive this measure if you have already confirmed to us in this way for another purpose that you are the owner of this email address.
If you no longer wish to receive emails from us, you can withdraw your consent at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to basic tariffs. A notification in text form (e.g. email, fax, letter) to the 60seconds is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter.
If you subscribe to a newsletter, we automatically save your IP address and the time of your subscription and confirmation. This way we can prove that you actually subscribed and identify any unauthorized use of your email address.
We collect device and access data which arise when you interact with a newsletter. For this evaluation, the newsletters contain links to image files stored on our web servers. When you open a newsletter, your email program loads these image files from our web server. We collect the device and access data which then arises in pseudonymized form under a randomly generated ID number (newsletter ID), which we will not use to identify you without your consent. This way we can understand whether and when you have opened which issues of a newsletter. The links contained in the newsletters likewise contain their newsletter ID so that we can determine which content you are interested in. We use the data collected here to create a user profile for your newsletter ID in order to personalize newsletter content according to your interests and usage habits and to statistically analyze how our users use the newsletter service. We connect this data to data which we collect within the framework of usage analysis.
This shopping personalization is an integral component of the 60seconds platform newsletter.
You can object to newsletter analysis at any time by deactivating the corresponding newsletter service. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every issue of our newsletter. You can also find further information under “Which data protection rights do I have?”
Alternatively, you can deactivate the display of images in your email program. In this case, however, the newsletter will not be displayed to you in full.
In connection with our Services we present information and offerings from 60seconds on the basis of your interests. You will receive these individual product recommendations from us regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter. In accordance with legal stipulations, we preferentially use your previous shopping and interests data, which allow us to derive your product interests in view of the interests, preferences and profile data you have shared with us, to select individual product recommendations.If you do not wish to receive any more individual product recommendations from us, you can deactivate this service at any time:
We and our advertising partners use your data for personalized advertising presented to you in 60 seconds’ Services and on other providers’ websites and apps. We and our advertising partners use the prevailing market technologies for this purpose. This allows us to advertise in a more targeted way in order to display as many adverts and offers to you which are actually relevant to you. This allows us to better meet our users’ needs as regards personalization and discovering new products and to interest you in our service in the long run by providing a more personalized shopping experience.
The advertising formats used by 60seconds and 60seconds’ advertising partners include presentations in the 60seconds platform (within the framework of on-site and in-app optimization), adverts on social networks (e.g. Facebook ads, Instagram ads, YouTube video ads) and advertising spaces mediated via the online advertising networks used by 60seconds such as DoubleClick by Google.
60seconds does not sell any personal data. When our advertising customers book a 60seconds advertising format, they do not receive any data which could be used to contact or identify you without your express consent. Our advertising customers only receive anonymous, aggregated reports with information on the effectiveness and reach of the advertising Services we provide. These reports are based on 60seconds’ own surveys, and sometimes also take into account summarized reports which we receive from our advertising partners and social networks. These show, for example, how our advertising Services have affected sales to various groups of customers.
In creating target groups, we use our own findings from data analysis on our users’ usage and purchasing behavior and customers as well as our market research on user segmentation which we apply to the user data collected by 60seconds. In doing this we especially consider aggregated, pseudonymized or anonymized shopping data, search histories, interests data and demographic profile data as well as device and access data.
Example: A target group may be: “Women between 25 and 35 years old who are fashion-conscious and interested in sport, and who have ordered an Adidas product in the last year”.
Our advertising partners also have the option to provide us with their own data for user segmentation, which was collected by the advertising partners themselves. The advertising partners must undertake only to provide 60seconds with aggregated, encrypted or anonymous data, so that we cannot assign the data to any particular person, especially any particular user of the 60seconds platform. Some target groups are created on the basis of the users’ surfing behavior. This is the case if advertising is only intended to be presented to users who have recently visited a particular website or searched for particular content.
We use the above information within the framework of on-site optimization in order to present you with more relevant information and content when you search for products, call up your feed or visit a product area. On-site and in-app optimization is based on cookies and similar identification technologies for the pseudonymous collection of device and access data. This data is not used to identify you personally, but rather to evaluate your usage pseudonymously. Your data is never permanently combined with other personal data we have stored on your person. This technology allows us to present you with products and/or particular offerings and Services with content based on your device and access data (for example advertising geared to the fact that you have only viewed sports clothing in the last few days).
If you do not want on-site optimization, you can deactivate this function at any time:
Please bear in mind that data used for on-site and in-app optimization is also used for other purposes (including the provision of our Services). The collection of the data used for this is therefore not prevented by deactivation. The advertising presented to you will, however, no longer be personalized.
If we advertise via advertising formats offered by social networks (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, Instagram), we have the option of forwarding encrypted information on 60seconds users (e.g. device and access data such as advertising and cookie IDs, email addresses) which we believe belong to an advertising customer’s target group or show particular features (e.g. age group, region, interests).
The relevant social network will then - either on our behalf as an order processor or with the consent of the relevant user - decrypt the transmitted data and display the advertising booked by us to the user as part of his existing usage relationship with the relevant social network (if he is a member of the relevant social network).
If you do not want us to use your data to present you with personalized advertising on social networks, you can deactivate the forwarding of your data:
If you have consented to the forwarding of your data to social networks, you can withdraw your consent at any time.
You may also have the option of deactivating the use of your data for personalized advertising by the social networks you use by directly contacting the relevant providers. For further information, directly contact:
Facebook (Facebook, Instagram):
Google (Google advertising network, YouTube, Google search):
You can get further information on the operators of the respective advertising spaces and the online advertising networks charged with mediating them.
You can deactivate the processing of your data for retargeting at any time:
Please bear in mind that the data used for retargeting is also needed for other purposes (including the provision of our Services). The collection of the data used for this is therefore not prevented by deactivation. The advertising presented to you will then not, however, be personalized.
60seconds only forwards your data if this is allowed by European law. We work particularly closely with certain service providers, for example in the area of customer service (e.g. hotline service providers), with technical service providers (e.g. running computer centers) or with logistics companies (e.g. postal companies such as DHL). These service providers may generally only process your data on our behalf under special conditions. Where we use them to process orders, the service providers only receive access to your data in the scope and for the time period required for provision of the relevant service.
If you shop with a 60seconds brand, we forward particular shopping data regarding you to the respective brand (e.g. your name and your delivery address), so that the brand can send you the goods ordered.
Some brands work with external shipping companies (e.g. DHL) to deliver orders. These shipping companies receive the following data to execute the relevant order:
When you order an item, the item is generally dispatched by the relevant Brand. We forward your shopping data to the respective Brand for this purpose. This includes:
In some cases, or countries, we also transmit your email address or telephone number to Brand, but only where this is necessary to facilitate the delivery of the item to you.
60seconds remains responsible for processing your data. Your data will neither be processed together with Brand nor on behalf of Brand. 60seconds will ensure that the Brand program does not give Brands partners any control over the processing of your data. When you purchase items or goods from Brand, 60seconds only transmits to Brand the data listed above which Brand requires in order to fulfill its service to you, i.e. normally in order to deliver the purchased goods to you. When 60 seconds transmits your data to Brand for the reasons above, 60seconds will ensure in the contractual agreements with Brands that Brand only processes your data for the above purposes.
Please bear in mind that Brands have their own data protection provisions. You can usually find these on the relevant partner pages of the 60seconds platform and/or on the websites of the relevant Brands. 60seconds is not responsible for its Brands’ data protection provisions and data processing practices.
We work with technical service providers in order to be able to provide our Services. If they process your data outside the European Union, this may mean that your data is transmitted to a country with a lower data protection standard than the European Union. In such cases 60seconds will ensure that the relevant service providers contractually or otherwise guarantee an equivalent data protection level.
Cooperation with external credit agencies for fraud prevention, payment method selection and credit checks is country-specific.
As part of advertising campaigns, we forward data to social network providers within the scope of data protection law. You can find further information under “How does 60seconds use my data for advertising?”.
If we are obliged by an official or court decision or it is for prosecution purposes, we will if necessary forward your data to prosecution authorities or other third parties.
You have the following legal data protection rights under the relevant legal conditions: Right to information (Article 15 GDPR), right to deletion (Article 17 GDPR), right to correction (Article 16 GDPR), right to restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR), right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR), right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR), right to withdraw consent (Article 7 (3) GDPR) as well as the right to object to particular data processing measures (Article 21 GDPR). You can find the contact details for your applications under “Point of contact”.
If you close your customer account, we will delete all the data we have stored regarding you. If it is not possible or necessary to completely delete your data for legal reasons, the relevant data will be blocked for further processing.
What does blocking mean: If data is blocked, restriction of access rights and other technical and organizational measures are used to ensure that only a few employees can access the relevant data. These employees may also only use the blocked data for the above purposes (e.g. for submission to the tax office in the event of a tax audit).
Blocking will occur, for example, in the following cases:
Deletion may be waived in the cases allowed by law if the data is anonymous or pseudonymous and deletion would rule out or seriously hinder processing for scientific research or statistical purposes.
We transmit your personal data securely using encryption. This applies to your order and your customer login. We do this using the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer). We also use technical and organizational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, change or dissemination by unauthorized persons.
